OTA started today-player interviews


Recommended Posts

I love this picture. TY and Parris when they talk in interviews seem to have a very close relationship. TY says he talks to Parris everyday. Some of the videos being posted over the last couple days it looks like Parris is flying.

Yup. I think TY is just a super nice dude in general. Glad he and PC are hitting it off. I hope TY and Wentz bond like he and Luck did as well.

Parris is such a nice kid. He has a really nice wife too. I am not ashamed I have sent her a message or two about a couple things. She is really sweet. She is so humble. Always talking about how she hates spending money and is always trying ways to save including coupons. Just really down to earth.

Campbell said he has already worked a bunch with Wentz and just got 100% cleared last week. That must of been a very bad injury.

 

So that means Wentz has gotten individual work in with

 

Doyle

Campbell

TY

Pittman

 

And that's just the ones we've heard about.  I have to be happy with that.

Pascal said he worked with Wentz too once the trade happened. Add Patmon to that list too since he was living with Pittman out in Cali.  All of them say how easy carson is to get along with and he is a great guy. Even Ryan Kelly said the same thing. 
 

It’s going to be hard for anyone outside of the six WR to make this team. We will keep Dulin meaning we will probably have 7 WR. Strachan may not survive waivers if he is cut and wanting him on the PS. He had a lot of teams wanting to sign him as a undrafted FA. Patmon should have the upper hand because he has been here a year and already built early relationship with Wentz and Eason.

Every single interview with every single Colts player is a good listen. All they do is talk about how they want to put the team first and how focused they are on working and improving. You can hear Reich and Flus's philosophies in their answers every single time. If the Colts have nothing else, they have a team with a single vision, with everyone pulling in the same direction, and with everyone focused on the same goal.

 

I look around the league and see teams like Texans, the Eagles, the Packers, etc. where it seems like everyone is on a different page. I can't imagine how much more difficult it is to be successful when that's the case.

This is why Ballard stresses character so much. One bad apple can ruin the entire thing. You don’t have to sacrifice character to get a good player. You just have to be diligent on who you bring into the locker room.

Agreed. I remember a poster or two here last season suggesting the Colts should dump TY for whatever they could get because he's near the end of his career. I'm very glad the Colts did not do that.

I don't know why you think you're revealing something that's embarrassing to Ballard?    You're not.

 

Ballard says the same thing at the start of every free agency period.   That other teams may value his players more than he does.   That's he's ok if he loses a player to another team.   He just wants a chance to match or exceed the offer.   Hilton was offered 3-years from Baltimore.   The Colts signed him to a 1-year deal.    That's a win for Ballard and the Colts.   Hilton got more than we would have liked,  but only on a 1-year deal.    So, that's a win for TYH.    A win-win situation.   There's nothing bad reflected on Ballard.

 

Yet you think you're offering some insight that the rest of us somehow don't understand.    That's not the case.   The rest of this community understands a win-win situation.    You want to see a loss, a negative for Ballard.   It's reflected in most of your posts,    It's reflected in many of your posts, including one in the last few days which talked about not a good enough record,  and not enough playoff wins.   Your views are widely known.

 

 

It wasn't about Ballard....it was whoever tweeted that the colts were "EXCITED" to have Wentz throw deep shots to TY. And my post reflected that if they were truly EXCITED TY would be here with Wentz it wouldn't have took a last minute deal(call by irsay) to resign him. He came within a eyelash of being a Raven.  :thmup:

Eason has to be excited to finally show what he can do. He might not a chance with the colts but he needs to show up in the preseason so he gets a chance with another team in 22 I don’t think we would trade him this year before the season starts because we need to make sure Wentz works out. But maybe next season.

I wouldn’t hand that last spot to Dulin. I know he’s a ST ace but the Colts have a few others now who could make him expendable. I could see them keeping 7, and Dulin not being one of them. 
(TY, Pitt, Campbell, Pascal, Patmon, Harris and Strachan).

Just depends if someone can play ST like him. He is very good on ST. I wouldnt complain if who you listed are the ones that make it though. For some reason. I keep thinking of Patmon as the 6th. Ha your right we have four guys for sure those other three spots are open. I kept thinking we had 5 solid guys but we only have four.  I can see Patmon and Strauhn making it now I see it laid out like that. Then the seventh will be Dulin or Harris.

There will be a time, and it will be sooner than later, that we need to move on. It's not this year though.

I still have hopes they try him out at slot. I've read articles this spring suggesting he won't move inside, but I think moving to slot could extend his career by 3-4 years. He doesn't get the outside separation he used to, but he still abuses coverage big time in the middle vs LBs and Ss.

Braden smith when asked about a extension. My agent gets paid for that stuff I get paid for football lol.

 

 

Some players even think they get paid to pick GMs and HCs... 

 

Already love Smith, but loving his demeanor even more.

TY has earned the right to retire a colt. Unless he starts getting injured a ton we don’t need to move on. We just need to make sure we have young guys to take over when he does retire.  With Wentz scrambling ability I bet he has a GUGs year and we might not be able go afford him.

I'd love him to retire a Colt. Some players just want to play longer than teams can afford. If he produces and is available (healthy), then I'm all for him sticking around as long as he can. He still runs great routes, and gets good last cut separation. Last-cut separation though requires chemistry though, and not sure how much of that we can expect with a new QB. Not always, but more times than not, a new QB will favor either speed-separation or Bigs when they are new to a system.

I 100% agree with this. I wished for this last year with Rivers as well. Once Campbell went down I thought for sure TY was getting pushed to the slot and I was disappointed. He would become more valuable IMO going across the middle against either a nickel guy or LB. he has speed to take care of those guys. Maybe with Wentz having a better arm than Rivers we can see better deep routes form TY. He definitely has lost a step though.

Is Dayo going to be able to play edge or is he just a backup to Buckner.

 

 

 

  Isn't it a little early to determine if won't be able to play the DE position he was drafted for?

    • Today I am going to spend some time listening to some SF podcasts. It’s always fun to see what the enemy is thinking of the colts. I am following a really good one on Twitter too. He always has common sense takes about his team.
    • It's interesting how bent out of shape some people get about us not having a top notch back-up QB, when most teams don't. Most teams have guys that have been around the league for a long time, but were never able to do anything of note (whether as a starter or not). You have guys like Chad Henne, Colt McCoy, Mike Glennon, and AJ McCarron. If any of them have to come in and play meaningful snaps, they're not putting the team on their back and winning the game for you. They may be able to play the role of game manager and not mess up too bad, but that's the general reality of back-up QB's. Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the exception, not the expectation.
    • He was already called up twice. So he can’t be elevated unless signed to the 53 man roster.
    • Not that you expect much down to earth thinking on the radio, particularly from Mike Wells, but he was co-hosting with Bowen this morning and he was talking about how much Ballard botched the backup QB position because of his movement up and down the depth chart.  Not to mention that Ballard said "Look, he's a 4th round pick, he's going to have to earn it" when asked after he was drafted and hasn't had a great thing to say about him since.     To me, when it mattered, we had a serviceable backup when we needed it - Jacoby - and he did well when he was forced to start an entire season after Luck retired.  After signing Rivers, we all knew we couldn't keep Jacoby at $20m as a backup and couldn't really resign him for what he wanted after the 2020 season so we drafted Eason.  Had the talent, but needed to be coached up - what do you expect from a 4th rounder? ya know?  and then we drafted Ehlinger in 2021 and signed Hundley and put him on the practice squad.  Ehlinger goes on IR and once we get to see Eason, activate Hundley to the active roster because we've seen enough of Eason.  Ballard will put him back on the PS if he clears waivers or maybe we don't.    But these guys act like we're 2-4 because we cut Eason and Ballard has just completely mishandled the backup situation.  Like, we're talking about a backup QB.  Any team that has to put in their backup for considerable time is in a bad place.  Let's not act like even serviceable backups like Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the norm when we draft 4th round and later QBs.  Let's get a little bit of a grip on reality...
    • We have no FS on our Squad Right now. I think Ccachere or Tell had potential to be that... If Blackmon was a beer he'd be called Willis Light lol...
