Unfortunately hindsight is 20/20. Remember that Parris was healthy in college and DK had neck concerns leading up to the draft.

don't remember AJ Brown having any neck isssues, and Ballard took Banogu instead

I can’t believe Chris and scouting staff watched that much Ohio State film and chose Parris Campbells over Terry McLaurins.   Even if it was a close call, why not enjoy the palpable good will of drafting a hometown hero that dreamed of playing for his favorite team.   Seems Colt’s do pretty ok with Cathedral kids.

This isn't hindsight. Most of us were pounding the table for Metcalf or brown and we picked Campbell instead. Never wanted him. My top three were marquis brown, aj brown and Metcalf. Mc Lauren is hindsight as most of us didn't know he would be good

Pittman is in the same boat with me. He is all talk and no production. Campbell was injured on the one reception he got last week. It’s early in the season, but come on! 

 

He had 100 yards Sunday. He hasn't talked much at all either so both of these statements are incorrect... im unwilling to be disgruntled about Pittman especially after the Rams game, game two, where he got 100 yards.

I was so ready to give Campbell another shot this year cause I think his potential is so high, but I think he's one of those players whos body will never be able to handle the NFL.I had a coach who used to say, "are you hurt, or injured, there's a difference" one you play through, one you don't. I feel like we have a handful of guys on this team we cannot play through some pain. Meanwhile there's guys in the league like Luck and Romo playing with punctured lungs.

Quite a few folks wanted McLaurin especially because of that local connection and his love of the Colts.

I don't ever question the injuries or ability to play through whatever. These guys are tough, you dont get to this level being feeble. However, availability is the best ability and Parris is never available. I won't question his toughness but i'd question the sanity of anyone who schemes around him or expects him to be present.

I agree, I hate calling out their toughness, but the things is, guys like Campbell, it isn't new. The injuries have been with him since college. Missing games always.

Exactly.  Brown and Metcalf were asks.  Marquis Brown was a TY replacement so he was a little farther down the list.  And McLaurin was on the radar as a sort of nonimpact steady guy...polished route runner...steady....that was a notch below the other guys.  He was thought to be a Pascal type of performer, but nobody predicted the level of success he has had.

 

Nobody on this board who participates in draft discussions mentioned Campbell, IIRC.  This isn't hindsight.

 

Brown was an X receiver.  We had just signed Funchess to starters X money.  And we had TY.  So the need to draft AJ, DK, or Marquis was not there.

 

Hindsight tells me though, that Ballard picked Parris for need.  We needed a slot.

Brown was may favorite WR that year. I was really hoping we would take him when we had the chance, but I wasn't exactly upset that we picked Campbell. In hindsight, Brown absolutely was the better pick (at least at this point in their careers).

Would be nice if reich actually used him correctly.

This is my frustration. I don't feel like we're using him correctly at all. He can be such a versatile weapon and from what I've seen, we haven't been calling enough plays that are designed to put Campbell in space.

What do you do with Hines then?  Run him between the tackles, lol?

 

With Hines getting paid, Campbell has to be more of a down field threat more often.  He needs to create his own space at that point.

I don't see why you can't utilize both to be less predictable. Ideally, Campbell would be able to contribute more as a downfield threat, but if he's not there yet, you might as well utilize his playmaking ability.

Philip Dorsett is available. Isn't Campbell and Dorsett kind of mirror images of each other?

Not really at all other than being WR's that haven't lived up to their draft position. Dorsett is a small, fast WR that essentially could only run go routes. Campbell is bigger and has been much better on manufactured touches where he can get the YAC.

Campbell appears to be 2 inches taller and 10 lbs heavier. Not a big difference size wise and they both ran a 4.3 and change at the combine. On the other hand Dorsett is about the same heights as TY and 5 lbs. heavier and had a better 40's time. Just saying he's available. We took a look at Isiah Wilson, a college wrestler and two no name WR recently. Wouldn't you at least kick the tires? He gives you a deep threat and would probably come cheap.

Colts will need 2 WR in next years draft.


A replacement for Hilton and Pascal.

 

We already have a replacement for Campbell, Strachan.

I'd be shocked if Pascal isn't here next year. He's great at what he does, coaches love him and his work ethic. It's not his fault he's having to play higher in the depth chart then he should. He's solid.

2 inches and 10 lbs is a big difference between WRs.

 

There is also a difference between a deep threat and someone that runs fast. He never has shown the technical development needed to be an actual deep threat like TY.

 

Campbell has played in a total of 11 games (small sample size), whereas Dorsett has played in 72 and is in his 6th season now (much larger sample size). Campbell has shown flashes of high level play (mainly last year before the injury) and Dorsett has not shown that at all. TY should be back in a few weeks, so why bring back someone Ballard traded away to replace him?

I watched us skip Dj Chark, Metcalf, and Claypool wanting them all.

So far Campbell looks like a bust. Guy needs to eat a steak.

It's a crime he got the start over Strachan...

He's been getting open on intermediate routes....Wentz either isnt seeing him or is choosing the long option first. 

I've been as impatient about Campbell's progress and ability to stay healthy as any other Colts fan, but this season, the lack of production is on the QB

    • Let’s have a wait and see approach on Dayo…..  Dude is coming off a serious injury.   Also I don’t believe Dayo being good will effect Buckners contract or importance to the team.   But Buckner does need to start playing up to his $100m level…
    • Here's a cut from an article (link below) talking about working him back slowly.   “I’m not that ‘throw it all at ‘em’ guy," Baker said. "Here’s what I worry about. If expectations are too high or if the things you’re asking him to do too much, he’s not going to have success, and if they don’t have success early, then what are they recording? They’re recording failure.   "And there’s going to be some of that, and they can learn from some of that, but if they’re overwhelmed, then you’ve got to get them out of the hole. Him and (first-round pick) Kwity (Paye), to a lesser degree — they’re developmental players. They’re talented developmental players, but they’re developmental players.”   To speed up his learning curve, the Colts want Odeyingbo to play primarily as a defensive end early in his career. The Colts know the maturation process for a defensive lineman takes time. Every rep taken in practice is vital to the long term progression of a defensive lineman. Odeyingbo said his understanding of the game and three years of starting experience at the SEC level should allow him to get up to speed after missing time during training camp and the preseason.   He may look like an All-Pro pass rusher, but he's solely focused on improving his craft and putting his impressive tools to use on the field.    "For me, I'm really coming in with no expectations," he said. "I was finally happy to get out there yesterday and kind of like set a baseline, and be able to grow from something. ... I'm just trying to get better every day and that will take me where it does."    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2021/10/21/colts-de-dayo-odeyingbo-achilles-flashing-potential-return/8501968002/

    • I'd recommend that both you, and some SF fans, know a little history...    SF Offensive Rank 2015 - 31st (5-11 with a 2-6 Kaepernick) 2016 - 31st (2-14 with a 1-11 Kaepernick) Shanahan arrives 2017 - 12th (6-10 with an 0-6 Hoyer then a 5-0 newb Jimmy G) 2018 - 16th (4-12 after Jimmy G tore his ACL in week 3ish) 2019 - 4th and SB runner up (13-3 with a very meh Jimmy G) 2020 - 15th (6-10 with JG injured twice and only playing 6 games including the 2 he was injured in)...    Other info... Shanahan had the #7 and #2 ranked offenses while he was OC in ATL, improving them tremendously.  Jimmy G is a very meh QB. Decent quick/short thrower, but has always had deep accuracy and turnover issues. In short, Shanahan is a very good play caller and offensive strategist. He's done very well with good QBs, and even very well with a very meh Jimmy G at 13-3.   SF wins that SB if it wasn't for Jimmy G's 2 INTs and late game failures. Shanahan also wins the SB in ATL if ATL's D didn't collapse. His D in SF also allowed 21 points in the final 5 minutes to KC lol..    And that's nothing like Reich lol. It's 99% about the QB in SF.
