  1. Training Camp Buzz

    Fellow 2nd rounder Rock Ya-Sin has been equally impressive in camp.
  2. 25 and Younger: Who ya got?

    I'm assuming you're referring to the Chiefs game where the Colts D got exposed? I know the broadcast showed a montage of Leonard getting beat in coverage, and certainly his awareness in zone is the one aspect that he must improve on if he wants to be considered an elite LB (though he's already really good in man which tends to get overlooked). But in spite of that, he still had 14 tackles and one of his signature clutch FFs in that game. Sack production for off ball LBs is hard to maintain but I don't see his production slowing down anywhere else. He doesn't have to be Kuechly for that to be the case.
  3. Madden Ratings(Your own)

    I found the Colts ratings to be pretty fair. Only a few minor gripes: 1) Leonard (84). I understand being cautious with 2nd year players, but then I look at other rookie standouts like Barkley (91), Ward (88), Nelson (87), James (86), and LVE (86). I think Leonard should be an 86 given these other ratings. 2) Interior DL (Autry 76 and Hunt 75). While Autry's 9 sacks may be a bit misleading, he was still an above average 3T. He took over a couple games with his interior pressure. Then with Hunt, he really found a home in this system as a NT. I would probably add 2-3 to both of their ratings. 3) Anthony Walker (69). He had a breakout year but was overshadowed by Darius Leonard. He is far from irreplaceable but a 69 ignores his really solid play.
  4. That is one of the dumbest ideas I've heard.
  5. Great Colts report. Only issue I see is that you said we were last with 18 sacks, while that is actually the number of sacks allowed. We were tied for 19th with 38 sacks on defense. Doesn't really change your point though because we were terrible at getting pressure with the DL. Houston should help a ton.
  6. Official 2020 TE Thread

    @Ozzy Any opinion on Brycen Hopkins?
  7. OP said no K/P. Although I should halve snuck Leonard in there because he only missed because the NFL is stupid and doesn't know how to categorize positions properly.
  8. Colts Andrew Luck -- 4 TY Hilton -- 4 Justin Houston -- 4 Quenton Nelson -- 1 Eric Ebron -- 1 Jack Doyle -- 1 6 players, 15 pro bowls Shouldn't the algorithm involve how many years they've been in the league?
  9. OK, Aaron Rodgers will turn Matt LaFleur into next idiot

    Rodgers is so unlikeable.
  10. @Pickle Rick @Malfatron Thanks for remembering me fellas, unfortunately a family matter will be taking up too much of my time for the next few weeks. I''ll try to make the next one.
  11. Colts extend Kenny Moore through 2023; Makes him highest paid slot CB

    Apparently the Colts initiated the talks. Ballard recently did the same with our punter and long snapper. He always preaches using the cap space to reward home grown talent who fit the culture. On top of that Moore is a damn good player but has really only done it for a year. Not surprising so many people dont know about him but he was probably our second best player on D behind Leonard.
  12. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    Lol no. Lamar is a great football player who happens to suck in the NFL.
  13. Everything OTA's

    OTAs mean absolutely nothing of course.... but IF Jones was as good as Eli, he would be a top 20 QB already. I think they would take that.
  14. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I love that you're behind our national team but I totally disagree. First, we value women more than just about any other country or culture in the history of the world. This is demonstrably true. Second, I view your argument in the same light that I would view "this shows how much we value basketball over water polo". Of course you can argue that the water polo players are just as talented relative to their particular subset (true), and there is no objective reason we should value basketball over water polo (true). There is no politically correct reason that we should value the men's team more -- but that is just the way things unfolded our culture. This likely has to do with men being both more competitive and athletically gifted. It's a better product because it is truly the best of the best, and because of this we are all more invested in it in general. I would bet any amount of money that EVEN IF YOU POLLED WOMEN, they would be more interested in men's sports than women's sports. It's just the way it is, and no amount of sensitivity training is going to change that.
