No... this will be me

From WTNP Episode 3:  We want a guy who wants to be coached, wants to get better, has high character, and has something you can point to that makes him unique. Is it me?  Or do these traits all a

To be fair, Rivers had a terrible season before coming to Indy and Reich said he could fix Rivers and he did.    Before that Reich got Andrew going on a return from injury and a long time wi

Anyone know of a schedule?  I cant find a date for episode 2.

is it random?

Thought it was every other week... Might be completely wrong also.

For those with a subscription to The Athletic, they just published a behind the scenes article on our beloved behind the scenes series. Hah!

That article is great.  I hope the organization promotes or keeps knickerbocker on staff!

Yeah im thinking the same.

Maybe he had some skin cancer issues or something and had them removed. Otherwise that was kind of weird.

That was my first thought.

Episode was not really draft related, centered around Carson and TY for the most part. 

As expected with the end of the first episode.

Great to really see that connection and get to know him more. Beautiful daughter! Makes me miss those days when mine was little... Enjoy it Carson, it goes by way too fast.

Yeah, looks similar to what my wife’s eyes looked like after her skin cancer surgery. Hopefully he’s okay.

I am sure he is. They can catch that early now:

 

TY’s laugh at the end had me rolling.

Wow, seeing Carson and Frank absolutely GUSH about each other has me super excited for next year lol. I knew they were tight, but

This episode makes it seem like more of a Reich/Wentz bromance than a carefully and logically crafted player acquisition. And the bromance appears to be a lot more about religion than football. That's worrying to me.

To an extent I can see why you'd be worried. But also, look at it as, every quarterback who's played under Reich has had a great year. So the Synergy and chemistry is most definitely a good thing alot of times. Plus they're realistically tied at the hip, if it doesn't work, Reich will be gone too.

Technically it is since we gave up a 3rd this year for Wentz.

Pretty indifferent to the Reich/Wentz relationship but if it makes both of them more successful then I welcome it. Best part of the episode for me was TY. Guy has been a stud for us for so many years and to see him excited again makes me happy. He was crushed when Andrew left and his production obviously suffered but I really do believe him and Wentz could do some fun things.

 

Will be exciting to watch, let's hope for a fantastic year! We are certainly setup for it with the talent and front office support this team has.

Just because they didn't share with you what Frank thinks of Wentz as a football player, and what they plan to do to bring him back to the high level of play he had in the past....    doesn't mean there isn't all that information somewhere.   They just didn't share it.   

 

If you want to not think much of this episode of the series,  that's fine.   Others seem disappointed too.   I just wouldn't let it bother me that they didn't break down more of the football relationship and aspect of the decision to trade for him.    I don't think it's an issue to worry about yet.   It may be someday....   but I don't think there's reason to worry just based on this one video chapter.

 

Just my own view of this....   your mileage may vary....

I loved this episode.  To be honest, I wasn't impressed with the first one.  JMO.  That laughter by TY is priceless.  I'm excited about the Wentz to Hilton connection.  Looking forward to our offense this year!!

Why would that worry you?

He’s saying that reich possibly pounded the table to get Wentz in more based on his fondness for the person rather than based on the likelihood that Wentz will have a resurgence in his career.

 

Which would be worrying indeed if that is the case. But we don’t know that.

    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
    • Age and health would be the argument for Smith and Leonard right now.  It’s not all about position.
    • It is my understanding the Colts grade every player on every pay.  Their has to be a method.  It was my understanding, i don't KNOW, that more teams than not subscribe to PFF, for their own reasons. Perhaps they too snark at their numbers.    The story i recently read/heard about a fumble recovery for a touchdown turned one DE's weekly grade from the 60's to near 90, well, that is very concerning if true.  The best way to see if someone is any good was back when i watched every Colts play in super slow-mo, sometimes frame by frame to see what really happened. Unfortunately i couldn't compliment that with all-22.  AC looked BAD for his 1st 3 seasons in pass-pro, and Andrew was terrible with timing and accuracy in the short game. Based on Harbaugh's pre-draft hype, and others of course "not since Elway," that part of his game disgusted me.  PFF can't reflect how much benefit or damage is done by the overall effectiveness of those around you, or good or bad coaching. Ras isn't everything but is a very solid place to start.
    • Nate only missed 1 kick in the Divisional round loss against the Patriots, it was a what would've been a then career long 54 yarder when he was rushed on to the field to attempt it as time was expiring due to the Chargers having burned all their timeouts. Had he made that kick, it would've only tied the game, not given San Diego the lead or win. He converted all 3 of his extra point attempts in that game.   He was brutal in the 2009 Divisional round loss to the Jets, he had only missed 3 kicks all season and missed 3 in that game alone, although one of them was a  57 yard attempt that would've tied his career long. He had already missed a 36 yarder and that Bolts were up 7-0 when Norv trotted him out to attempt that long one at the end of the half, and that miss combined with the earlier one seemed to scramble his eggs. Later in the game while down by 10, he badly missed a 40 yard attempt and although the Chargers got another touchdown, they ended up losing by 3.    He missed when he hit the upright from 48 yards out in the 2007 Divisional round victory at Indy and in the only AFCCG he played in, Kaeding accounted for all 12 of the Chargers' points by going 4 for 4 against the undefeated Patriots in the snow flurries at Foxboro.
    • You're probably right.  But a franchise LT is the more important position.  More than RT, and even an All Pro LB.   I'm not saying he'll sacrifice either of them in order to sign Fisher long term.  But I think that once they see that Fisher can play, they'll want to wrap him up long term.  He won't be cheap either.   I think it was on one of the podcast they pointed out where all of the LTs for the playoff teams were drafted.  Getting one that works out past the first round is pretty rare.  And we probably won't even have a first rounder next year.
