Trying to emulate the Patriots offense is a bad idea. Defenses will figure it out - it has no speed, no outside game, and struggles in the 2:00 drill.

It would work great with threats on the outside, but we only got one good WR in Reggie.

I think the colts are trying to recreate what Luck did at Stanford. People always see the passes, but the Cardinals did A LOT of POUND AND GROUND...and I mean A LOT.

Watch the entire USC vs Stanford game to see what I'm saying.

I dont' LIke Allen as a pick, but Allen AND Fleener are great blockers and If Brown focuses, he could be a 1000+ yard rusher next year. *If* that's what they are doing.

Allen is a round 2 pick that we got in the 3rd. Unlike Fleener, Allen is a complete TE and was the Mackey award Winner last year. I guess he was BPA according to Grigs. Now we have our two starting TEs. Before this draft we had Eldridge (who will now sit the bench because that's where he belongs).

and actually the needs we have all had starting Corners or Guards or Defensive Tackles or Linebackers all within our reach so alot could have been fixed in one draft, I honestly dont get that argument that you cant fix everything in one draft

Yep.... and they both have really good hands too.

Along that line of thinking.... I'm hoping we add an OG at some point.

Actually, both Allen and Fleener have been noted as needing improvement in their blocking

Because all 10 draft picks in one year never work out for any team. Ever.

As much as I dislike Allen, he does have great hands...just as good as Fleener. Fleener is a great blocker despite what analyst say and Allen is an even better blocker. I just don't like Allen's speed and he burst. He is always getting in the RB way when he pulls from the H-back position to block. (watch some vids) and I'm like, dude your a TE, Guards can even pull fast enough to stay out of the RB's way.

Hopefully they don't ask him to Pull much.

no but it was better then drafting a tight end two picks in a row although I really like Allen and like Fleener but I would drafted one or the other with our needs thats all Im saying

    • Never get in a fart contest with your center is, I believe, among the first 10 rules in the NFL QBs guidebook.
    • With so many ex-Colts on this team, it might get pretty emotional. Those Jets will either be extra fired up or extra intimidated. Time will tell, but I bet its a good game.
    • On 1070 the Fan today, they were discussing this and media people who were at the game last week said that the stadium could accommodate 15-20 thousand and still maintain social distancing. Probably too late to extend occupancy for this week... But for Cincinnati good possibility, especially since INDY easing constraints. We will see.
    • Fixed it for you.  For those that missed it (MNF, Cowboys/Giants game, I was listening in my car on Westwood One radio live) a black cat went onto the field while a play was in progress.  Kevin Harlan announced both the play, and cat movements simultaneously.  After the whistle, Harlan did play by play of the whole cat incident. It was really funny then, and still is now.  You listen to it here- Bob Papa (Radio voice of the NY football Giants) was calling the game as well, and also did play by play and stated "The cat, is not in the hat" at one point. A lot of folks had fun with it too.   The CAT, a football life-
