Ballard hit a home run on this one


Recommended Posts

Totally, he just hit 30 in June so I don't see him speeding up with age. That said, the Colts (until the disaster that was Week 12), the Colts must have some kind of magic potion *wink* because other than Marlon Mack and 3 key players against @ the Titans, the team was relatively healthy!

 

Especially when you look at the rest of the NFL..

 

I lived in Westfield Indiana and theres not much to do honestly, still love Indy no doubt about it, but not much to do for a football player other than PT in his farm-sized Indiana mansion so they probably had an advantage in that sense.

RHODES CLOSED BABY! 

 

I still can't believe Colts didn't call Rhodes name in 2013 draft and called Bjorn Werner instead. Then Minnesota came in very next pick and swooped Rhodes up.

 

Would've been so nice to have him that whole time. 

The guy they should have taken went 2 picks after Rhodes. 

 

Deandre Hopkins 

He turned out pretty good lol

GMs draft for need.  They all do. 

 

We didn't draft Rhodes because we had just acquired a #1 Corner in Vontae Davis (a very good one) and teams can't devote capital into two #1 CBs, so Rhodes was never an option. IMO.

 

We had TY and Reggie.  Hopkins would have been a luxury too.

 

With Mathis aging and Walden being what we could sign given the cap constraints still, an OLB/DE was the right position to target (among some others).

 

Unfortunately, you have to make sure the actual player is good enough.

 

Some folks wanted Larry Warford, the G.  That probably would have been a better fit for what we needed.  He's still playing now too IIRC.

    • It sounds like the problem is Easterby.   I've watched a few videos and read some articles.    The players hate this guy.    
    • He didn't have a problem with having Foles as his backup. 
    • It’s gonna be really interesting to see what direction we go with Wentz’s primary back-up this year.  We’ve read that he had a real problem with Hurts nipping at his heels last year, but that might be a little overstated by the media. Nonetheless, re-signing locker room favorite Brissett might not be the best thing for the apparently insecure Wentz.  Likewise, if we signed a veteran like Andy Dalton, it could threaten Wentz’s job if he struggles early on.  It might be a good idea to go all-in on Wentz by intentionally backing him up with younger, inexperienced QBs who aren’t a threat to his starting position.  Of course, he’s spent a lot of his career injured, so a Dalton-like back-up could potentially save the season.  It’s a tough call.  I think I’d sign an Andy Dalton and hope Wentz has the character to understand that level of depth is best for the team...
    • I think we should consider drafting a hybrid SS/LB to pair with Leonard.  Maybe simply draft a new WILL, and move Leonard to MIKE.    I think we can do better than Willis and Oke.  We still seem to give up too much in the middle, and having a stud Hybrid player matched with Leonard will better secure the middle of the field on all three downs.  JMO.  Then get another FS who would cheat to the deep side. (maybe that's Tell)  And Blackmon can cheat towards roam the underneath more like Bob Sanders used to.   If we went OT at 21, then a speedy back-seven hybrid guy at 54, that would be great.   Will have to do more study on the players you mentioned.
    • Being a fan going all the way back to the great year of 2011 I can surely say this is the best team the Colts have ever had.
