17 minutes ago, coming on strong said:

he has stepped up big time the last couple weeks now i dont nice autry anymore with him and turray both with 5 sacks .  autry has hit a tail spin with the titans after a strong start .  maybe i was wrong about autry ballard is looking better every game he saved 4 million a year going with AQM

Autry IIRC, was out last game with injury or illness.

And just a few games ago, he had a hell of game against the Rams, which has a top 5 OL.

Autry before last weekend was top 25 in pressures, while the Colts have zero players in the top 25, not even Defo.

Alright pardon my inquiry but I’m not familiar with what IIRC is abbreviated for

 

Ahh I just googled it, edited the post to reflect it; new one on me hadn’t been familiar with it

 AQM is lousy at protecting his edge. Reminds me of Mathis crashing down, spinning inside, routinely giving up the edge. Running at him is a winning stratedgy. 

 His mediocrity is why Buckner isn't able to do more. It is tremendously important Dayo becomes that 1st down presence using his size to dominate his edge. And that is a next year thing. Hopefully!

 Of course it is good that AQM is available and plays to his potential. 

I can't imagine another team pursuing him as a starter, especially thinking he would be part of their top ten D-Line. No, he would more get you to bottom 10. 

 Thank him for his service.

100 percent agreed. 
 

I see DE starters as Paye and Dayo

 

With Lewis, AQM, and yes, Turay as the three primary backups.  Room for one more, though I think it’s clear it won’t be Banogu. 

 

I assume you mean in the future because Dayo obviously isn't completely back yet.  And it takes a little while for those guys to learn the position in the pros.

 

I'm really hoping that he turns out to be what we expected.  That didn't work out for Banogu.

AQM triggered a $100k bonus in his contract with his 4th sack, and equaled a season total personal best with his 5th sack.  He's in a contract year, at a time when the Colts drafted two guys at his position.  I certainly hope he gets 2 or 3 more sacks by season end, and earns a contract extension.

Thanks for posting. Had no idea he had a sack clause.

I also hope he gets resigned. I think most of our DEs are FAs except the two drafted, and Banogu, who has one more year. 

I really like both AQM and Lewis as depth guys. Turay too if he can just stay healthy. He's really the only PRS we have.

Ultimately you don’t want him to be a starter. Bur he is a nice rotational piece.

I like AQM but he is the definition of rotational piece. Rarely have I seen him blow somebody up or speed past a tackle for a sack. 

 

I agree he should ideally be a rotational piece, but he's gotten sacks against some good OLs. Bucs, Rams, SF, and Balt are all good OLs. He's done a lot better than I expected, and has improved every year. Not sure he can take another step forward, but he certainly had a higher ceiling than I originally thought. Always like him as a hard worker though.

Ballard is on the record saying Dayo had a first round grade on their board.    They hoped for Paye, then Darrisaw, then Dayo in the first round.   
 

In other words, Dayo isn’t Banogu who was a big projection.    As for Dayo and his injury, Fisher has already shown that he’s much better and Dayo is two months behind.   We won’t see an improved Dayo until next year.   But there’s no medical reason to think we won’t.

Dayo won't be Banogu.

 

Banogu was taken earlier by the Colts though (49th vs 54th) regardless of whatever the board grade was. Draft capital is draft capital. 

 

But the where the similarities stop. Banogu was just a raw PRS project, and was a total miss of a pick. He came from a D known rely on pure measurables, not really finesse or technique. Dayo is tweener that is also a bit raw, but has legit tape at both DE and 3T in a more traditional scheme. Not saying he's going to be an elite guy, just his floor is much higher than Banogu's.

    • He's angry. The person he is angry the most at is himself. He moved from Peyton, fine. He got a very good, once-in-a-lifetime replacement, but then proceeded to bungle that solid opportunity.   He bought into comments about how Peyton didn't win enough SBs, and how the Star Wars numbers are less than rings, etc. Basically he got spoiled by having greatness around. Now he's waking up again and the dragon is roaring. That's good.   It means he will do whatever it takes to get a QB. And frankly, the odds high that even his best efforts there won't be enough. There are many teams with smart people in their building who also need QBs desperately.   My guess is they stick with Wentz another season. They need to load up on difference makers on offense and bolster the pass rush. Maybe there's a young, overlooked QB in this so-called weak class. Maybe. Either way, I think the Colts are going to be a passing team moving forward. They'll build that way at least, and i suspect many fans will not like it.
    • Irsay seems a lot more vocal than I remember in a long time. Like he's almost setting up a big move.
    • It sure looks like he is done with Wentz from that tweet   He calls the QB position out specifically....   Sheeze
    • Sorry mods, please merge if this is already posted but did not see it in the irsay all chips are in thread. Irsay says it is clear watching playoffs you need a qb and O who can score 30 plus and a D that can hold the opponent under 30.  The fact he mentions the qb position leads me to believe Wentz is out.   Sort of odd that he tweeted it at 1:20am on Tuesday AM, but it's Irsay so not too out of the ordinary.     
    • This is a good list, but are any really viable?   Rodgers seems done in GB He is 38. How many more years does he have?   Wilson is 33, but I dont see him coming to small market Indy   Rodgers is playing at his peak, right now   There are so many of the Youtube Colts programs saying that we need to go all in for him   IF (A BIG IF) he wants to play for the next 4 years, and we can work a trade.....   It would cost us someone like Q and Wentz (We would have to take some of wentz cap hit as part of the deal) We DO have 2 decent guards on this team other than Q. It would also save us from paying 18M for a guard   EXTREMELY Unlikely, but with Rodgers and a shiny new DE that can actually rush the passer in FA   AND some picks in this draft (WR/TE)  We WOULD be a better team, maybe a SB team   I dont see it happening though   The best solution is that Wentz steps it up.......   I keep hearing that Irsay wants to go "ALL IN" this coming year.........  Lets see what that means
