  1. 2019 Indianapolis Colts

  2. Newly signed Patriots OT Jared Veldheer retires

    But Jason La Canfora told me .....
  3. Draft Picks signings 9/10 done

    3rd round LB Bobby Okereke is now the lone remaining draft pick left unsigned.
  4. Colts sign QB Chad Kelly

    After the draft was over, a representative for an undrafted QB released a statement that the Colts had informed him they weren’t going to sign him because they had interest in bringing in Chad Kelly. The Colts didn’t sign Kelly at the moment but did bring him in for the rookie mini camp as a camp arm. I think Kelly will compete with Phillip Walker for the third QB and potentially be able to clear waivers and go on the practice squad. Then when Brissett leaves in free agency (or if traded) he can compete for the back up job next year
  5. Draft discussion

    I posted this article earlier today in NFL General but I didn't fully have a chance to read it all the way through at that moment. https://www.colts.com/news/step-inside-the-colts-draft-room-with-chris-ballard I seen some people mention, and after reading the article, it looks like we are going to use a little of the Seattle secondary scheme. They call it step kick. The DBs press the WR at the line of scrimmage wait for the WR to make the first move, then when the WR (step) enters the DBs sphere (arm length) he makes contact (kick). This allows the DB to 1. Not commit to moving one way or another and 2. allows the WR to commit to his route before the DB makes contact. Apparantly Tell, Willis, and Ya-Sin fit that mold.
  6. Chris Ballard film breakdown, no cameras please

    I accidentally hit enter while trying to copy the link to the youtube video so I just edited to add the rest of the content
  7. In the lead up to the draft the Colts social media dropped small videos called, "With the next pick" that lead to a 44 min video showing inside the draft room footage of the Colts draft day. See here Today, like this time last year. Ballard invited local media into the draft room to go over video of what the team saw in each player they drafted . https://www.colts.com/news/step-inside-the-colts-draft-room-with-chris-ballard A couple notes, - Monday before the draft Ballard said he had about 8 players he was looking at at #26 - 5 of those 8 were still available when #26 came up - 3 of them were available after the trade down to #34 read the article in the link for other nice bits of info
  8. Ebron had surgery on his groin April 4th and isn’t expected to miss any time just will be limited in OTAs Leonard had a procedure on his ankle and will be out 6 weeks which means he’ll miss all of the OTAs. Leonard suffered the injury during the week 4 game against Houston and missed the Week 5 game against the Patriots.
  9. Miserable Hot Takes

    $4 million a year for Erik Walden was too much money. In actuality it was Ryan Grigson’s only good free agent signing. I also defended the Trent Richardson trade, because I wanted him to be good not because I knew anything.
  10. 2020 Head Coaching Candidates?

    With the trend of offensive coaches being prioritized over defensive coaches I’m a little less worried about DC Matt Eberflus being stolen from the Colts but I think if things continue to improve OC Nick Sirianni might become a hot commodity
  11. Was Tony Dungy an elite head coach

    Polian and Dungy didn’t value LBers and CBers as much as they did safeties and Edge rushers. So anytime we had a LBer worth anything he left as soon as his rookie contract was up. Mike Peterson, Marcus Washington, Cato June, David Thornton etc. Polian also vocalized a personal motto. ‘Only pay the best of the best’ So big money contracts went to Manning, Harrison, Freeney, Clark and Sanders and when it came time to decide between Wayne and Edge the WR got prioritized over the RB. It wasn’t until Polian actually started looking outside of the organization to fill the DT position (specifically Booger McFarland) that they finally got a ring.
  12. Indianapolis Colts aren't SB Contenders

    If I were the OP and I wanted to defend my statement I would say that the biggest reason the Colts aren’t SB contenders is that they overachieved last year, they are going to come back down to earth a little and the improvements they made are going to help them stabilize their roster to be bigger threats down the road, but not now. There is also the threat of the Chiefs becoming their playoff roadblock for years to come. Jaguars having an average to above average QB could be another issue in the division if the Texans and Titans aren’t enough. But New England(Brady) is a year older, the Chiefs lost some good pieces (potential Hill loss could cost them) and the Texans OL might be a year away from being real solid. Mariota’s year 5 “make or break” season could spell the end of that relationship. With all that said, the Colts are going to start out slow this season because of their early schedule and they are going to need to have a good 4-5 game winning streak in the middle of the season to make sure they don’t fall too far off the division leader. They should contend for the division title. They should contend for the wild card. They will not be hoisting any participation banners anymore.
  13. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/05/14/colts-sign-dadi-nicolas/ Nicholas was originally drafted by the Chiefs in the 6th round of the 2016 draft He played in 11 games in 2016 and spent all of 2017 on the IR. Last year in May the Chiefs traded him to Cleveland for TE Randall Telfer but the trade was voided days later. He spent time in training camp with Seattle and Washington last year but didn't make an NFL roster;. The Colts meanwhile had signed Telfer and had him in TC for a little while.
  14. Draft Picks signings 9/10 done

    Just Ya-Sin, Campbell and Okereke left to sign now
  15. Malik Hooker

    Pretty much what @Warhorse said but if you read this article (written during the Colts 1-5 start) it explains a lot of Hooker’s different responsibilities in the new defensive scheme and how his coverage ability is leaving QBs no options on his side of the field https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.stampedeblue.com/platform/amp/2018/10/11/17962310/film-room-where-is-malik-hooker-this-season
