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.
