What time did they practice today? I have a nephew "Dalton Tucker" from Marshall who signed a UDFA contract so added incentive this year to follow whats happening.

Very cool.   Interior oline.  He could have a shot

Appreciate the info, but "Twitter refused to connect" for me.  I do follow Bowen, but I seldom go on X.  I'll check it out though.

So Jaylin Simpson will be conversion to CB, it seems. Not totally surprising. He has slighter frame than you probably need at S... and of course when you look at his arm length(32 3/8") you could have probably guessed that the Colts would be tempted to try him at CB

I absolutely LOVE that Mitchell picked 10 as a constant reminder that 10 WR’s were picked before him.  That is a GIGANTIC chip on his shoulder.   So far I like everything I’m reading about the kid.  There may be speed bump or hiccup some day….  But so far so good. 


Couldn’t agree more! The chip on his shoulder is a very good look. That said, I have always valued the “clutch” gene in players. 
 

It’s truly something that can’t be coached and can’t be taught. AD has IT! Period. Exclamation point! He has it. Name a better receiver in the college football playoffs/ championships ever…

 

You can’t teach that. He has it. He can be that guy. He is the 33-32 Colts over the Pats, 4th and 1, AFC Championship, game changer. He can be that guy… Will he? I have no dang idea. But does he have the ability to be? Yes! Resounding, yes!

So true. I was watching his presser yesterday as I wanted to get a feel for him after some of the negativity surrounding his personality on the draft day, and I LOVED how happy and excited he was. I had a little fear that some of the fan base would buy into the negativity prematurely and make it a rough start for him, but I don’t think so anymore. 

 

I think he and Latu are both going to be playmakers for us, if not this year then very soon. Have a feeling they bring exactly want this team needed to finally take off. They bring a lot of faith to me, together with Richardson and Steichen. Can’t explain it, but the pieces to the puzzle is suddenly to see on the table.

And his coach is Reggie Wayne ?!  Somebody pinch me!

Latu has the right attitude for growth

 

Humility leads to growth and learning

Arrogance leads to staying where you are................

 

 

I love this draft group

 

I STILL am concerned about FS, but it looks like they will analyze the position in camp and then make a decision

Listening to Dodds it sounds like Bean is definitely in the long term plans as a backup QB, not just a UDFA camp body. Exciting times in Colts nation. Also, really love the diverse personalities shining through in these interviews. Can see them flowing over and hopefully one day soon giving the team its own "it" factor. This year feels different

I think bringing in competition at QB3 is very valid

 

We have another vet QB coming in to back up QB1 

 

I’m hoping we can get a future QB2 from the draft or UDFA (maybe this year)

If there’s one certainty about the WR corps after this camp, it’s that the new guy doesn’t skip leg day!

Tryout - ok. Time to go back to being a barista 😂.

 

Chill guys. It's just a joke. They got in the door which is an accomplishment by itself

Have to laugh at him saying Mitchell blew away a tryout DB. Like they said yesterday these highly drafted rookies should stand out. If they don’t something is wrong.

 

Agreed, but it's better that he's burning those guys than the alternative - that he's not standing out. He can only burn who's in front of him and he will likely continue burning DBs even in camp. The biggest jump, like we've seen numerous times before, is between pre-season games and regular season... So... right now all he can do is check the boxes that are in front of him. And good on him for doing it so far...

yep. If he wasn’t making them look stupid I would be very worried. 
 

I didn’t realize until the other day this Slovid  kid was a freshman when Pitt was a senior at USC. So they have some familiarity.

    • Appreciate the response.   A few thoughts to share….   i think Irsay only steps down IF his health deteriorates.  No use in comparing him to Kraft, his health appears to be better even though he’s much older.     But if Irsay stepped aside, here’s why I don’t see the daughters blowing things up and starting over.   If they fire Ballard — fine.  But if they also fire Dodds and Brown, at that point, I think you’d see the rest of the scouting department resign (if they weren’t fired too).  They will all get good jobs elsewhere too.     At that point, Steichen is surrounded by very few who know him.  Worse for the daughters…. There would then be a clear line.   With Irsay vs with the daughters.  And if the new GM doesn’t do well and things go south, then the blame won’t go as much to the new GM as it will to the daughters who decided to blow things up.   They’ll be the focus of incredible hate if the new regime makes fans long for what looks like the good old days of the Ballard years.      The argument for not hiring Dodds or Brown seems to be little more than Ballard-hate.  Those people want nothing more to do with anyone associated with Chris Ballard.   Guilt by association, not because of ability.      Thats why I described hiring one of Dodds or Brown as the easiest, simplest, cleanest move to make.  Much less risk.  But blowing it up and starting over is the far higher risk move.  Threading a tiny needle hoping to get it right.     By the way, if you fire Ballard and company and hire a new GM, who does those interviews?   Honestly, who?   Who would you feel good about conducting the interviews of the new GM?      Firing someone is easy.  Hiring the right person is really hard.    Thanks for your patience. 
    • I just want to be on record now. If the Colts fire Ballard for whatever reason in the next few years, I have no clue what direction they will go. Just wanted to get that out there in case any of you were wondering my opinion on this. 
    • I understand there are a lot of people that don’t know the story. I for one am burnt out on it. I do find it funny they “stole” the Ravens from Cleveland but whine about the Colts leaving. Sports bring out the best homers and team spirit. 
    • Colts by 17. Going to be a rough week for you buddy.    Thats a joke. I have no idea but would probably lean towards the Packers winning if I had to choose. I do think it’s great you may have transitioned to a third franchise QB in a row. I hope Love has a great career for you guys. Always had a soft spot for the Packers and they would probably be my team if I didn’t love the Colts. I enjoy it when you guys are good. Best of luck this year!!  
    • Packers have a pretty strong and balanced team. The defense was able to hold the Chiefs to a low score last year while the offense was perhaps the only one to score over 24 points on the Chiefs defense.    But really it’s hard to say as of right now. Let’s see how everyone fares during training camp and after their season openers. Lots of things can change.
