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

    • Assuming we come out of the 1st 7 games at 5-2 which is a likely outcome, we won't really find out what this team is made of until we play the Ravens and Titans.  
    • The only element that "might" struggle is our running game, but I don't think that will happen either. Our pass O, pass D, and rush D should all dominate. My fear is we come out with a very conservative game plan, playing soft zone, and trying to not pass. 
    • I'm optimistic too, but "potential" can be a trap. I like the measurables of the guys we have, but most are wildcards. And let's be honest, the "potential" we've had has been a bit stunted in terms of growth due to QB woes 2 of our last 4 years. But yes, we do have a lot of speedy athletic, although raw and small school guys at WR. TE is however another story. If we remove Burton from the conversation (he's not a traditional TE, and is more slot than anything), Doyle is the only proven, and MAC is the only one I see with legit potential. At RB, Taylor is the only legit true RB aside from Mack. Wilkins is good depth, but he's not bell cow between the Ts guy. He's a zone rushing back most effective on the edge. Great depth, and will look great later in games behind our OL, but not a #1. Hines is a great APB and is legit. 
    • The Colts not only need to win, but they need to come out and make a statement on Sunday. They need to destroy the Jets on both sides of the ball and win this game by a landslide.
    • Ballard completely rebuild 98% of the roster in three years. I don't count 2017 because he didn't have his own coaching staff and had to deal with Pagano. Even with Andrew Luck retiring, Ballard never stopped building the Colts into the highly talented roster they currently have today. I don't think Ballard gets enough credit just like I don't think Andrew Luck got enough when he was carrying the Colts pitiful roster for multiple years on his back.
