What I want; what I hope....


Recommended Posts

 

I think the Colts most obvious and pressing needs are....

 

LT,  DE,   CB,   WR and TE.     I hope all are addressed in the next 3 days.   Fortunately for Indy,  OT, CB and WR are all very good classes, with the OT class being one of the best in recent memory,  though perhaps not quite as good as advertised.   The WR class is great at the top and strong at every round through at least 5 rounds,  maybe more?    The DE class is a little odd,  but the TE class seems very below average.

 

If we take other positions...  interior DL, or LB, or Saf, or IOL,  then I suspect these players would be very high on our board,  and much higher ranked than whatever pick we would use to take them.   

 

I'm well past arguing for specific players.    If the Colts take them,  they will have been thoroughly vetted.   As long as we are addressing our needs,  then I'm good.   Don't get me wrong,  I want us to use a combination of need and BPA.    That's why I noted the strength of key positions.   

 

Final thought....   to hit a home run in this draft, we have to do more than make good picks.   We have to acquire MORE picks as well.   A 3 this year.   Perhaps a 4 this year.   If Ballard can get up to 8 picks,  he can start wheeling and dealing and potentially adding even more picks.    That's when CB is at his best.    And if we can even add a 2022 pick,  then we will have maxed out our opportunity.   That's what I hope for.

 

Good Luck to all Colts fans...

I would like everything you are saying. Apparently they are saying teams are looking for 2022 picks in trades but I do hope to get at least a 3rd this year.  That will turn into a good pick IMO. A lot of talent in this draft and Ballard is good and dealing to make sure he has plenty of shots to make sure he gets that bullseye.

    • but the fact they still ran it 30 times shows they maintained balance throughout the game, which is all we've been asking frank to do.  they didn't go almost a quarter and a half without a rushing attempt.  they kept the bucs defense honest and prevented their pass rush from just pinning their ears back and going after the QB.   and the 30 rushing attempts did more to wear down the Bucs Defense than if they'd gone all out pass
    • that's a really cherry picked, "but what if..." lol.  quite a reach to try to keep defending your position.   I mean...agree to disgree I guess but anyone who's watched even a decent amount of football should know that going all out pass, no rushing at all, makes the team more susceptible to sacks and turnovers.  
    • Our defense hasn’t been great this year but football is symbiotic. The offense, defense, and special teams all have to compliment each other.  Last game the offense & special teams kept turning the ball over.  Sure the defense has to get some stops after those turnovers but the other 2 phases also have to stop turning it over.  I also remember our D stopping Brady 3 & out when we were down 4 to keep us in the game.  Then muffed punt.  Then they still went right back out and held the Bucs to 3 on a short field when a TD would’ve probably ended the game.  They gave our offense another chance to get their shot together. And they finally did by giving the ball to our MVP.     And remember the offense’s job is to score points not just to get yards (yes all the yards from those however many straight 2nd half passes were irrelevant because we never scored on those drives).  Only turnovers and a punt.  Seems like people are quick to make excuses and give passes to our HC, QB, and offense and lump all the blame on the defense.  We can all agree that with the injuries to our secondary, our offense is our better unit this year.  I expect more out of them.  From what I’ve seen, our O’s lack of execution & play calling have cost us more games than our defense this year.  Our margin for error is too thin for our best unit (Offense) to not carry the team most games.  That’s why all 3 phases have to be complimentary.     Our identity is a team with a dominant rushing attack, clutch QB play, and an opportunistic defense that creates turnovers.  We stick to that formula and we’re a playoff team that no one wants to face.  We stray from it and we’re a mediocre team that finds more ways to lose against our tougher competition than to win.
    • They say he is a bad pick because he can't stay healthy
    • As Dallas at New Orleans ended on internet radio, youtube offered a video of TJ Watt tackling Joe Burrow to the ground, one week after Cam Heyward 'accidentally' punched Justin Herbert in the stomach, or maybe groin, after Cam's arm became 'accidentally' stuck under Herbert's body. Heyward was penalized...I'm not sure about Watt...but both of them deserved suspension.
