I don't watch them that much but Cards D doesn't really impress me that much.

We will be fine if we can run the ball well and not be one dimensional. A lot of that will depend on us staying in the game so we don’t have to keep passing. They are good pass defense team so you don’t want to be one dimensional.

Cards losing helps brady for #1 seed. I don't know about the tie breakers but the packers will probably lose soon and Cards too, maybe they lose to us? :D

GB is going to win it all, I have money on it. Put $500 on them to start the year. Rodgers wants that 2nd ring, puts a QB in a different light when that happens. That was my pick before season and I am sticking with it. I had Buffalo winning the AFC, thankfully I had no money on that lmao .

 Was thinking the same thing last night.. really don't wanna see another super bowl with Tom Brady.. 49ers vs Chiefs was so refreshing!

So the guys on tv said cards struggle at home. Not sure only having two losses means they have struggled. Cards haven’t had that hard of a schedule either.

That made me smile when I heard that! We can do this!!

I don’t want another Brady or Mahomes super bowl in any shape or fashion.

I find the Patriots more concerning than the Cardinals. It's an advantage to play at LOS instead of Gillette Stadium. The Cardinals game is in Arizona and on primetime, where that team doesn't play as well. We just have to get a win against NE, and it will be a good start for the other games.

If this team can't win on the road in primetime, then it will never do anything in the playoffs if we make it there. With the AFC as stacked as it is now, the odds of us ever making the playoffs as more than a low division winner are small. Which means we'll probably have one home playoff game game at most unless some 5-7 seed faces us in the AFC Championship. We have to win on the road. We can't use that as an excuse. These are talented, professional athletes and they have to overcome that to win a SB. We as fans can't use that excuse 5 years into a rebuild anymore either.

    • I called guys like Willis a failure because the Colts traded up to get him.  Publicly said they considered taking him in the 3rd round where they took Okereke.   They didn’t get much from him when he played and then he retired early.   Tell played a small amount his rookie year and played well.  Then took the next year off for Covid.  But then came back and was on the practice squad.   Wasn’t even a backup.   Sorry, that’s a failure, not a stretch.   Davis was sent to the PS as a rookie where he was claimed.   Blackman either can’t stay healthy or doesn’t play well enough to make an impact.  Good against the run, poor against the pass and he plays free safety.   Not enough performance for a third round player.     All your other arguments are not related to your original question which was to ask about Ballard’s defensive draft failures.   You asked, I answered.   I didn’t say Ballard had no defensive successes.   
    • Morris,   “The Indianapolis Colts are doing the "unprecedented," as the team is set to go through a third round of interviews for the vacancy at head coach.  But despite the long decision process, Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris remains "one to watch," per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.   “It seems like some of the candidates did really well," he said on The Rich Eisen Show. “Raheem Morris I’ve heard has done very well. I think that’s certainly one to watch,”
    • Including 4th and 5th round picks as failings is a stretch. It's still early to call Blackman a failure just yet.  How about the players that were hits? How about the ratings of the defense as a whole over the span since 2018? Where was the defense rated on points scored against them? Had we had just an average offense there would have been a substantial amount of more wins. 
    • Just in, An unnamed source from the Indiana Farm Bureau on W. 56th street has strongly suggested on the condition of anonymity, that Yao Sujie the Chinese National Olympic Handball Coach is now the clear dark horse front runner for the vacant head coaching position of the Indianapolis Colts.  
    • The defensive failures would be these….   2018: 2nd R: Turay. DE 2nd R:  Lewis. DE   2019:  2nd R:  Benogu.   DE 4th R:   Willis       SS 5th R:   Tell.         CB   2020:   Blackman. FS   2021:   Davis.       DB   NOTE:   I didn’t include 2017 in this.  The Colts first three picks were all defense.  None have developed.
