This isn;t Parks stuff. I do understand that though.

You're right, it's not his playbook. But I want him to learn from others a bit more. I mean this in all seriousness, I do think he's got a job in the NFL, and I think down the road he's got a chance to be a good coordinator. But he needs to learn a bit more.

Well , I never root for the Colts to lose, even tho it helps us in the long run. So it is what it is. Can't say I'm happy with the loss, but at least the season is finally over for us.

agreed. I hope my fandom never gets to the point of rooting for a loss.

Chicago is sitting on a landline. They can trade with Texans and trade again with colts if colts get to four. Plus get one of the defensive players. They are about to get a ton of draft picks.

Why would the Texans want to trade with them?

4th and 20 and we let Davis Mills beat us, this is what I think of this season toilet GIF

Colts gave us as a scare but at the end of the day showed that they understood the assignment.   Looked like Rodney Thomas could have easily knocked down the Texans last TD pass but let it sail over his head and into the hands of the waiting Houston receiver.  Happy about the result. Feels like a win today. Lol

So conflicting for me. I wasn't rooting for a loss, but I was fine accepting the results. But then after we started playing harder I was okay rooting for the win. And then whatever that was at the end of the 4th happened and well... I hope this draft puts us down the right path for the future.

i don't think Thomas let that happen on purpose. but we are all entitled to our bias.

He is talking about a scenario where the Bears move to No. 2 in trade with the Texans. 
 

Then, move to 4-5 with the Colts. 
 

The Texans would want to do it in order to prevent the Colts, Seattle, Detroit, Tennessee, Carolina, etc trading the farm to get their guy

Absolutely! It was a good game to watch from a nonbiased standpoint. Crazy ending too.

I don't think the Texans were worried about the 1st vs 2nd.  Other wise they would have rested their starters today.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
