  1. 2018 Free Agency and other off season moves

    At this point, I would like to see the Colts tradeLuck to the Cleveland Browns for their first two first-round picks and their two second round picks. I cannot see Cleveland being happy with Tyrod Taylor as their number one quarterback.

    Any Chance the Bills try and move up into 6 spot for the 12 and 22 pick?
  3. 2018 Free Agency and other off season moves

    Colts acquire draft picks! Trade down to number 6 and receive three second round picks. Two In this draft and one in 2019.
  4. Anyone sending there kids here. I have heard good things about the skill development. Sent them an email with nor reply through their website with no reply. That kind of stuff does not impress me and turns me off as bad business. Trying to give them the benefit of the doubt.

  6. 2018 Free Agency and other off season moves

    Colts continue to lose out on free agent after free agent. Melvin gone(cheap to the Raiders), lost out on Jensen(42 mil for 4 years to the bucs; expensive, but what price are you willing to pay to have Luck playing?), and Poe(to the panthers for 9 mil a year; to expensive ?). Who do we target next that Grigson....I mean Ballard cannot close on? Did the McDaniels situation send a bigger message around the league then we on the surface do not know about? Are players fearful of coming to the Colts? 4-12 seems like a better situation then 0-16, but Cleveland seems to be getting things done. This is a business, that is the phrase you always hear. But is there an underlying problem we don't see? I am losing faith that Ballard can close a deal. The Titans and Jags are separating themselves and to some degree the Texans are too. The Colts are staring down a worse record in 2018. Patience in the market is turning into an excuse not the policy. When names start popping up like Ryan Grant(failed physical in Baltimore), who caught 45 passes last year for the Redskins, I'm not impressed. He had a 4 year 29 million dollar deal nullified. We are going to pay that out for a No. 3 or depth receiver? We only have seven picks in this years draft. You cannot build a franchise through the draft with 7 picks. Those numbers do not improve in 2019. The colts are selling use a bunch of crap. I feel better now. Feel free to post the "we knew that Ballard was going to be patient in free agency" GB4. I just needed to say this. Are you still feeling warm and fuzzy about the Ballard approach?
  7. 2018 Free Agency and other off season moves

    I hope you are right. Maybe I am still gun shy from the Grigson era.
  8. 2018 Free Agency and other off season moves

    We get the idea that Ballard is a man of integrity and is keeping his word. I watched him sit on his hands last year and then sign guys that were cut, injured, or non-factors after the season started. I am ok with letting Moncrief go. He was a cancer in the locker room. But we have a few guys that could help the team out there test the market. We also let Htchens go for a reasonable price to the Chiefs. We could make a big splash for a reasonable investment with Suh and Poe. The DL would demand instant respect. Especially if they take Chubb at number 3.
  9. 2018 Free Agency and other off season moves

    Agree! Not doing anything that we as fans can see. Ballard is in a pivotal year to me. He must do something that gives at least me hope that this is a team of the present/future. I am wavering slightly. I thought we would have at least made a move on one or two top tier free agents. Maybe Jordy Nelson or Solder. The Colts could use either one or both.
  10. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    I totally get being patient in the free agent market but being non-existent is not a great approach either. I know you cannot sign all top tier free agents, but it is crazy to sit on 72 million and spend it on 12 low level non-impact players also. We took that type of approach last year. I think we are on the same path as last year. Hoping that we can pull off a good trade on draft day.
  11. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    Very good points. Can the Colts squeeze the Bills 2019 first rounder out of them also? So 12 and 22 in 2018 and 2019 first rounder for 3rd overall in 2018.
  12. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    The start of Free Agency has gone well for the Colts. Lost out on LB Hitchens formerly of the Cowboys now going to the Chiefs. Also lost out on G Norwell formerly of the Panthers to the Jags(he was a long shot anyways). It does hurt that he is headed to a team within the division. Also lost out on WR Robinson formerly of the Jags now going to the Bears. I really thought we would land Hitchens. I know we aren't necessarily doomed by any of these moves or lack there of, but we need to bring in quality young talent at a fair price. i thought Hitchens was that guy. Maybe Ballard isn't a closer. So moving on. I think Poe is a good candidate. Anyone else have a free agent wish list. Corner is a premium right now. I like bringing back Melvin and maybe looking at Cromartie for challenger at corner or a good nickle guy. Any thoughts?
  13. 2A Football

    Eastbrook will have the best defense in Northern Indiana in 2A football with Woodlan not to far behind. Rochester returns everyone. They will be a tough out for Eastbrook and Rennsy in sectional 35. My top 10. 1. Woodlan 2. Eastbrook 3. Scecina 4. Mater Dei 5. Rennsy 6. Tipton 7. Rochester 8. Western Boone 9. Linton 10. Southridge
  14. So who are the favorites in 2A? Who are the dark horses? Maybe an early top 10.
  15. Spring Football

    In my opinion, Baseball is surpassing basketball in this respect. We have kids that are playing baseball from the spring until August 1. The number of games and tournaments are outrageous. A kid can travel with several groups and fill an entire summer.
