  1. Competitive Drills

    In the weight room, I've done competitions with mental toughness as well as physical endurance--who can hold a plank the longest, who can hold a chin-up the longest, etc. You can go team-wide or player vs. player. Love the idea of having kids critique football-specific drills. "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
  2. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    I think Philly would be foolish to get rid of Foles until Wentz is all the way back. Tearing an ACL in week 14 isn't conducive to playing week 1... However, if the right offer comes along (a minimum of 2 first rounders, per Peter King), they would probably listen.

    I think Gore is gone as well. The one I'm curious about is Vinatieri. He still plays at a high level and is relatively cheap (expensive for a kicker, but cost effective overall), and he's a good locker room presence. But do the Colts decide to move on and focus on youth? It's way down the list of priorities, obviously, but I wouldn't be shocked if they let him walk.
  4. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    With their salary cap money available and draft positioning, they need to sign 2-3 new starters in free agency and then draft another 2-3 more. I guess the silver lining is that--with a roster this bad--almost anybody you draft can be a starter!
  5. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    I think that would be the ideal situation. Roquan Smith is a dude! Quenton Nelson, Minkah Fitzpatrick, or even Chubb (if he slides that far) would be huge upgrades if they were the picks there as well.
  6. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    Ballard may have had this whole shift in mind last year when he signed those three guys too, though. And when he drafted Basham, who was a 4-3 DE in college. Maybe the idea was to have some stop-gaps in place so that a pass rusher can be added this year who, in a few years, will be "the guy."
  7. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    Quality pass rushers don't hit free agency, though. They're drafted and groomed, but if they're worth their salt, they stay where they are. You might get a flawed situational pass rusher (Mingo, Sheard, Simon, e.g.), but a complete edge presence has to be home-grown.
  8. Coaches Salaries

    Personally, as a bro coach, I'm compensated in flying chest bumps and tweets.
  9. Bill Belichick

  10. Kirschner Resigns from BD

    -Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! -Germans? -Forget it, he's rolling.
  11. Indiana State trick play

    Spurrier used this on offense, not kick return. Pretty gutsy to do it that close to the defense, in my opinion...
  12. best game you've ever seen in person?

    As a player: 2004, Beech Grove 16-West Vigo 13 (first win for BG since late 2002) As a coach: 2008, Yorktown 22-Western 21 (Yorktown went for 2 and the win late in the 4th to advance to Sectional Final) As a fan: 2002, Ben Davis 35-Warren Central 28 OT (Regionals)
  13. High School teams by county

    Delaware County: Delta, Muncie Central (merged with Muncie South this year), Wes-Del, and Yorktown. Non-football schools: Cowan, Daleville, Muncie Burris, and Wapahani.
  14. New Castle to HHC

    Best move possible for New Castle, the NCC, and the HHC. They will fill the void of Rushville moving out very well.
  15. Colts-Broncos

    October 20 in Primetime! We knew it was coming, now we just have to see how it turns out.
  16. Colts-Broncos

    I think the Colts have a very real chance as well, but it will most likely have to be by winning a shootout. I expect Peyton to be on his A-game for this one. Wow, I never thought of that. Spot on, though!
  17. Colts-Broncos

    I'm just glad it's at LOS instead of Mile High. Even with the revamped defense, playing Peyton in Denver would bode poorly for the Colts.
