Goodbye season.   Ballard hasn’t properly addressed the OT depth. Clark and Green.. just abysmal.    Hopefully Ballard knows he cocked it up.

Exactly. Geoff Schwartz adressed a similar question a year or two ago-   "What is the most difficult position switch for an offensive lineman to make on the O-line that the majority of peopl

i just wanna know how the heck you go into a game verse a division opp knowing full well that Taylor was taken from the game and not bring up any of our practice squad RB's Wilson even went down injuring his ribs and if it wasn't for him coming back we would have had only Hines the rest of the game what was our staff thinking???

Yeah regardless of if AC is out I think the Colts need to look at who they can bring in a LT. Despite the loss today you can't stop playing for a playoff spot. I don't see how you can move forward with Clark as your LT. (starter or back-up)

He also said Branden Smith was good to go last week and missed the game.

That’s true but it’s still better than him saying “it doesn’t look good”. Like I said it’s a little good news.  It doesn’t mean the Colts dodged the bullet though.

Can Pinter play RT and move smith to LT?

Can we move Braden smith to left tackle and anyone but Clark at right ?

 

I joked earlier this week that the above might be less crazy than some think.

Have Q play two positions then.  Ugh. 

 

Q could also play LT, and sub in for LG. We have better sub options at G than T.

I said it in another thread.  Ballard needs to sign a veteran tackle off a practice squad.  The quickest way to get help IMO.  No need to shuffle players around.  Clark won't cut it.  No messing around this late in the middle of a playoff push.

That would be good news.  He had one of these a few years ago and missed one game I think.  He’s tough cookie and if he can play he will.  AC is so underrated.

Hopefully a few rest days and a brace for a little extra protection and he's good to go.

If the mcl sprain isn’t bad he could play Sunday. His position wouldn’t be as hard as another position.

 

Chloe, OL and DL are among the most physical positions in all of sports - which is why those guys are so big.

 

And they are transferring enormous amounts of energy through their various joints (including the knee) as they anchor down and battle with 275+ lb elite athletes that can run sub-5 second 40-yard dashes.

 

And that's in addition to the knee having to support AC's weight as he moves laterally in his pass sets or drives forward when run blocking.

 

All that said, if it's a sprain, he would be able to play with a brace, but he may need to sit out for a while until the swelling goes down.  If he is able to play this season, Sunday would be highly unlikely.  May be 1-2 weeks, at minimum.

    • Instead of starting a new thread, I figured I would just post this here. It is a good thread to do so. After analyzing every team we have had since the 2000 season, looking at statistics of each of those years, talent we had on those teams, and by my memory's eye sight I ranked them from worst to best, here they are: 21. 2011 (2-14) - worst team 20. 2017 (4-12) 19. 2019 (7-9) 18. 2001 (6-10) 17. 2015 (8-8) 16. 2016 (8-8) 15. 2010 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 14. 2000 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 13. 2002 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 12. 2012 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 11. 2013 (11-5) 1-1 playoffs 10. 2018 (10-6) 1-1 playoffs 9. 2008 (12-4) 0-1 playoffs 8. 2020 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 7. 2014 (11-5) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 6. 2007 (13-3) 0-1 playoffs 5. 2004 (12-4) 1-1 playoffs/Manning 49 TD's that season 4. 2003 (12-4) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 3. 2009 (14-2) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Champions 2. 2005 (14-2) 0-1 playoffs, more talent than the 2009 team. 1. 2006 (12-4) 4-0 playoffs/SuperBowl Champions, best because they closed.   -Interesting since the 2000 season, our regular season record is 208-128. Playoff record is 13-15. The 208 regular season wins rank 4th most out of 32 franchises, the 13 playoff wins rank 7th most out of 32 franchises. The 3 franchises that are ahead of us in those categories are: Regular Season wins 1. New England Patriots = 244 regular season wins   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 217 regular season wins   3. Green Bay Packers = 210 regular season wins    4. Indianapolis Colts = 208 regular season wins   Playoff wins 1. New England Patriots = 30   2. Baltimore Ravens = 16   3. Pittsburgh Steelers = 15   4. Green Bay Packers = 14, Philadelphia Eagles = 14, Seattle Seahawks = 14   7. Indianapolis Colts = 13    SB wins since the 2000 season 1. New England Patriots = 6   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 2, Baltimore Ravens = 2, NY Giants = 2, Tampa Bay Bucs = 2    6. Indianapolis Colts have 1, tied with the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, KC Chiefs.   I guess our franchise over the last 21 seasons (2000-2020) going by these categories would be considered great. Something some should think about before criticizing our franchise or Mr Irsay.      My long historic post for the morning 
    • Heres another Ojulari type of guy that i like. His name is Malcolm Koonce. Same issue although i think hes a tad bit bigger than Ojulari in terms of weight. Comes from the same school as Khalil Mack. Actually built and moves like Mack. They list him as more of a 3-4 backer but he is so quick and agile i think it could work in a 4-3. Justin Houston type. He was in the Senior Bowl but i dont have clips. I think Buffalo ran the same 3-4 type system when Mack was there and he ended up going to the Raiders plaing in a 4-3 system so it could possibly work. Koonce is really quick.      
    • I really like that and tried something similar in in PFF's simulator.    I'd rather go WR or TE with the 3rd pick though and pick up a promising CB later, but, I confess, I don't value CB very much so that's probably just me. 
    • I would say my draft crush is Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern. He's fast, athletic, a great player, well coached, and never out of position. 6'1 190, perfect scheme fit for us. Ballard visited his pro day and loves him. Great RAS. Great combine. He can even defend the run. My favorite CB in the draft. Take a look at him if you haven't already.
    • I'm thinking the Chiefs or Packers would do it. Packers could go after Newsome, Farley, Toney, or Bateman at 21. Chiefs could go after an O-Lineman at 21. Especially if Teven Jenkins made it to us. I'd hate to lose him, but he's more of a RT anyway, so I'd trade down in a heartbeat to get a 3rd. Might even get a day 3 pick next year as well from the Chiefs.
