probably is for the best. but i like to see our players succeed. 

Yeah a part of me is mixed. I can't believe we gave up a 4th and 20 then a 2 to lose. I have seen it all now. Only time in my Colts fandom since 1984 that I didn't care if we won or lost was in 2011 because I knew Luck was coming out in 2012. It wasn't until we were 0-8 though were I didn't care.

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

All about perspective. Some can see the bigger picture. We all still want what’s best for the Colts. Those happy today are so because it improves our draft slot which is more important going forward  than a meaningless win today in an already lost season.  Black Monday tomorrow. Fingers crossed that Colts get involved. Let the purging begin. Time to get to work in trying to fix this big mess.

Okay gurls and guys, this has been a humuiliating and wild season for us.

We shall see how the draft will go. Since I don1t know the prospects well enough, I have no idea who would help us at QB (if we draft a QB at all). Drafting a QB is always tricky, as a prospect may be proven to be gold...or bust. And anything between. There are no prospects like Luck was, so I'm not sure we will find a franchise QB caliber guy this year, or next. I hope we will...

 

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLTS!

If anyone can tell me why are our starters still in the game? Why are players paid 50-100M in a game that we have zero interest in winning? 

We tried to win, just as the Texans did - these are players & coaches who have pride, and are unconcerned about their respective team's draft position in April.

Yeah, Texans probably shouldn't have made it known about Lovie leaving with the Bears in position for the 1. This game was basically an audition for the 2023 season with other teams.

    • This is my favorite mock I've done.  Realistic?  No.  But if we got even close to this draft, I think most fans would be happy.
    • After the guy had barely returned from the concussion, yeah reckless and stupid. I know it’s way too early for some people to criticize a new coach but this team needs a healthy qb to play upwards of 20 games each year. Do you think running qb sweeps in the middle of the field is likely to further that outcome? Recent history says otherwise.  
    • IMO - the team needs an absolute offensive game-changer at 1-15.  Is Bowers that?  If so, Ballard needs to go get him.  No more “value pick” trading back.  It’s blue chip time.  JMO, of course.
    • I am not saying you are wrong, it is after all just your opinion/philosophy on how you view team building.   My outlook on it is to draft ( first 3-4 rounds) the skill, big $$ contract players ( WR, CB, Edge, QB, LT) generally. There are exceptions early in every draft, like this year, Bowers (TE), Kinchens (S), Edgerrin Cooper(LB),Sweat (DT), if they, or similar, are available when the Colts turn comes each round. Having 4-5 year rookie contracts, if they become major contributors, builds a year over year solid, Cap manageable team. Lower rounds would be looking for depth, and high potential picks for current players high contract expirations or retirement in the not too distant future.    FA can be ideal for that absolute need position as a starter for the right deal, and player, like Gilmore signing was. It also is a method to fill the LB, Safety, RB, DL/OL quality back-ups, TE positions. It depends on the current team status if you splurge on 1-2 skill guys, or 3-5,$6-$10 mil guys.    JMO, know others have different thoughts, that's cool with me, just want to see a winning team. 
    • Know it’s only a mock, but I hope the draft doesn’t play like this because we’d be out on both bowers and Arnold.  I still think we should go for WR if it’s Brian Thomas.  If it’s anyone else, I’m for trading back unless any of the pass rushers left are bonafide difference makers (which idk).   if we want bowers or Arnold, we’ll probably have to trade up, which we probably won’t do, so my bet is we trade back.   i will say, 2 of these picks could go either way, the cardinals and titans.  Both could use receivers but also OL.  If one or both of them go OL, we could get bowers or Arnold.
