  Running so many go routes and now it's time for them to pay off. 

 Downs has disappeared. 

  Richardson will be good with Pierce, and yes Pittman is finally proving himself. He is a stud.

Yeah he has and it’s killed my fantasy team

None of our WR´s are top 15 in the league, so IT is a huge need.

 

Richardson... well, no one know´s how he will do in his second Rookie season (this one don't count due to injurie)

Well while I agree we need to look for an upgrade at WR ,

 

pittman is 4th in receptions, 7th in yards and 5 overall according to nfl dot com. Now he drops way down the list in terms of TDs so it depends on what stats you wish to look at. 
 

regardless, I’d like to see a more dynamic WR opposite of him

We could always use a dynamic WR.. just depends who is on the board.


Exactly!!! If anything, the smoke screen that we need a WR might get us a trade possibility with a playoff team like the Chiefs or Bengals (assuming Higgins leaves) if there’s a good one that falls into the late teens where we would be drafting, IMO.

 

The only X factor would be Brock Bowers. Dalton Kincaid, in a deep TE draft, went to a playoff team, the Bills. If Bowers is sitting at No.18 or 19 (say) where we pick, by some miracle, pull the trigger there. A playmaker TE plus Downs and Pittman with AP, watch our offense get 25-30 most game days consistently.

 

If Pittman is re-signed, yes, it does make our options be a wider net in the draft.

Maybe Reggie Wayne's work with him is paying off.


He was running open a lot. You just saw what happened when they actually decided to make an effort to get him the ball, and took their shots when they had a chance.

In addition to what Pierce did catch, he was also open for the TD in the endzone and Minshew overthrew him.   Minshew again missed him down the sideline for another potential TD when he was wide, wide open.  Dude was open all day.

 Isn’t Downs hurt? As far as Pierce, I thought the criticism was unwarranted. He hasn’t had great QBs throwing to him. Great game today though and I thought I heard an announcer say Pierce was a big key in Granson’s long catch.

I just saw the highlights, but there was a colts receiver running deep in the middle with 3 defenders. Probably him.

I believe Ryan said no one has run more “go” routes than Pierce this year.  For whatever reason Colts QBs haven’t pulled the trigger on them until today.  Hopefully we see more of it.  A pass or two down the field a game is going to do wonders to open up the rest of the offense.

He’s been banged up but I also think teams are focusing more on him because he’s made a name for himself.

Hmm wheres his doubters now? what a play !!!

It’s one game against arguably the worst secondary in the league.

It’s hard for me to believe because anyone else who has been open (Downs and Pittman) seem to get the ball.

Doubtful the Colts draft a WR early in the 2024 draft. Pittman is having his best year and Downs looks like a solid WR2 to go along with a Pierce improving.  The WR room don't look to bad IMO. 

That all depends on if Pittman is back. It is not uncommon in the NFL for players to over-perform in a contract year. Also just a few weeks ago, when JT’s status with the team in the future was up in the air, reports are that Ballard was asking for guys like Jaylen Waddle and Christian Watson in return. I think he is looking for a true 1.

One good game and everyone is ready to call Pierce the second coming of Randy Moss lol. Yea Pierce had a good game, but I would like to see more CONSISTENCY from him before I hop on the hype train.

I see more people giving him credit for a good game than calling him the second coming of Randy Moss.

Who said anything about Moss?  The only thing that's been said is that's he's been open a lot and can stretch the field,  and today he had a great game.

If a tyreek hill like wr is sitting  there in the first take him.while I agree that Pittman has been great at recs we need another wr with speed that will score 10 plus tds a year

I wish we did have a randy moss or tyreek hill like talent paired with Richardson  arm. That be unstoppable 


he has a strong arm, but we haven’t seen if he has deep accuracy or the ability to read the defenses. Hopefully he has a full year next year and developers all that.

Imo, Pierce was no different in his play this game or game 1. The only difference is they threw him the ball. As has been pointed out numerous times, he's been open, but for whatever reason, he's not getting the ball. 

 

As to why he got it this time, I can only assume the coaching staff emphasized it more pointedly or Minshew had some kind of epiphany either in his confidence in his arm or the fact that Pierce can catch the ball.

Wasn't his deep ball accuracy in college better then his midrange? Matter of fact I think his deep ball accuracy was better then Stroud, Young and Levis.

    • Do you think Puni can play center for us? He could play guard easy, but if Fries doesn’t regress, he could solve the looming departure of Ryan Kelly this year or next.
    • Well, the trolling part isn't part of the Colts PR. I think they just do that because that's what fanbases do to each on that app.   But regarding Colts PR, Colts Twitter do not critique the team. Instead, they hype up every player and play...similar to what the Colts Twitter account does as well. It's an echo chamber...or another term that is probably not allowed here. Some of them have "sources" which clearly just use them to control narratives and drive hype.    This is not unlike the local media. But they are a bit more subtle about it. Their access is their livelihood.    This is just my cynical take on it. I interact with Colts Twitter quite often. 
    • Biggest issue for me with Wiggins is he doesn’t seem willing to tackle which is a must for Zone corners. You have to be willing and able to bring the ball carrier down. On tape he didn’t seem to always to want to stick is nose in on run plays.   If it wasn’t for that, I’d be all aboard for getting him in a trade back. But maybe if he blows up the combine, I’ll feel different.   But you’ve got a pretty good read on the corners. Thats the same way I’ve got them ranked and broken down. If you’re looking for day 2 guys, I’d look at   -TJ Tampa, Iowa State -Khyree Jackson, Oregon -Cam Hart, Notre Dame   All long 6’2” corners with long arms.
    • It's hard to name any position that isn't one of need for the Colts.      My early read on these guys:   Arnold, the most complete and polished of the CB prospects in this class, athletic, good size, tough, competitive, a little handsy when he's beat but doesn't get beat a lot. He could easily be a top ten pick.   Mitchell, going to be a Combine star, good tape but a lot of hype based on his traits. I'll be watching him more after the Combine, but I think we'll be hearing his name with a lot of top 10-15 projections.   Wiggins, mostly traits and size, not sure about his long speed, has some production, seems like a good fit for the Colts defense but I don't get the feeling that he's a top 20 prospect.    DeJean, probably a hybrid, his versatility and athleticism will be attractive, but ultimately he might be more of a safety than a CB in the NFL, which changes my opinion of his draft stock. And I don't know if he's outstanding enough to be a top 20 pick if he's going to play safety.   Kool Aid, good size and athleticism, good speed, not as quick and fluid, physical and aggressive, seems like a prototypical Ballard/Bradley CB prospect. Maybe a juiced up version of Brents. Definitely a first round guy, but on a lower tier than Arnold and Mitchell.   Any of these guys would fit our defense, but Wiggins and Kool Aid seem like they'd be the most obvious targets for the Colts. Add Kamari Lassiter to the conversation as well, but he's probably a late first kind of guy.   I don't think Bowers falls. I think Brian Thomas Jr. is a top 20 prospect, and if the Colts want him, trading back is very risky. There are other receivers that could be in play.   I also think someone like Chop Robinson is a prototypical Ballard prospect -- high level traits, not great production, but a high ceiling guy. Latu is the opposite -- highly productive, high motor, doesn't have the traits (athleticism/length), probably an over achiever, and a likely medical red flag. Jared Verse is the scheme fit with a moderate ceiling and decent production; Dallas Turner is the non-scheme fit with the higher ceiling. Neither Robinson nor Verse would surprise me for the Colts. Jerzhan Newton and Byron Murphy should be on people's radars also.   I'd be surprised if the Colts took an OT, but there will be a couple who are worthy of the pick; this seems like a good draft for OTs. I doubt we take an interior OL. We obviously won't take a QB or a RB, there's no one to talk about at RB. Outside of those positions, I think virtually everything else is in play at #15.
