VERY LOW CHANCE that the colts have the 1st, 2nd or 3rd pick in the 2nd round but I can understand how a simpleton and his agenda couldn't figure that out :cool:
Mods, why do you let this man call me a simpleton while I got a post pitched for saying a guy lacked basketball knowledge? It would appear that your double standard is alive and well. This is just an average day...
Now, as for you, I have commented on every game and I remarked on how well Luck has played. I also said that preseason games are meaningless either good or bad. But I can see that we have no offensive line and we don't have the players that fit a 3-4. Both of those are recipes for disaster. I don't see Luck or anyone else lasting 16 games behind that line.......:cool:
Personally, I don't see the Colts winning any less than 6 games and I could see them winning around 9 games. But Ol' Blue probably disagrees. We will probably go 2-14 like last year if you ask him, even though this team is much better than last years.
Anyway, so preseason games are meaningless...yet you think negatives you see during these games are recipes for disaster. So which is it? are they meaningless or not? or is it just when it suits your opinion? :cool:
Sure there are question marks with this team and areas that need improvement but that hardly means we're the worst team in the NFL.
Ol' Blue- "Pre-season games mean absolutely nothing good or bad, but since the Colts offensive line looks bad during the pre-season we will be awful in the regular season"
Just imagine what we would have given up if irsay hadn't lied on twitter... :rolleyes:
I'm torn. I think Vontae could be really good, like leave him on an island and don't throw at it good. But then I also remember when he said he was part of the best CB tandem in the league.....right before Tom Brady torched it for 517 yards and four scores. He's definitely an upgrade talent wise but we'll have to see how he fits in.
I don't think it put any pressure on him. It might have changed what he had to give up to get it done.
I'm not saying it means we had to send a 2nd instead of a 4th or something. But there's no question it puts pressure on a rookie GM from the fanbase to make it happen. Not do or die pressure, but pressure. And there was absolutely no reason it had to happen, it was just Irsay loving to talk again.
Ahh...we're talking about two different kinds of pressure. To me the decision had already been made to upgrade at corner, so there's no pressure to "just make a deal". I see what you're talking about, saying he accepted a deal he might not normally take because the twitter comments weakened his position.
Nice pick-up to me, young with a load of talent and still on the rookie contract. If he and Powers can work together that would be a nice upgrade at the CB spot. Now if we can get Angerer back and get better stuffing the run I think we are going in the right direction.
Not sure why people get so worked up over Irsay, he's just havin' fun. He's never said anything that really hurt anything. I think it's just not what people expect, so they don't know what to think except "wth". It's just text... at least he makes an effort to interact with his team's fans. Never understood the mentality that the person who owns the damn team isn't allowed to act like a fan. He's not on Jerry Jones plateau of stupidity, and he's not like Cuban always battling with the league. It's all just positive, harmless stuff. He posts about rock'n'roll, guitars and football and giving away free stuff --- what a horrible guy, lol.
I think it was a good business decision to pick up VDavis --- he's 1st round talent who was in a bad situation (c'mon its Miami), and he acted a bit young, he's still extremely cheap contract-wise, and the chance of landing a similar talent in the 2nd round is a crap-shoot at best. He's a mostly known quantity. I think we'll see him mature and become a consistent near-elite level CB.
As for Davis, few weeks ago, long-time NFL General Manager Bill Polian was at Dolphins camp and singled out Davis' talent. "Watching him in practice, he jumps at you with his feet and hip movment — he should be a guy who's special,'' Polian said on Sirius radio.
Davis was originally signed to a 5 year contract for just over $10 million. Looks like the Dolphins already paid most of it. What's left is:

Great deal, now we need to trade Freeney for a talented SS and NT.
Irsay is the coolest owner by far in the NFL. He isn't your typical stiff, scary owner. I woulnd't trade Irsay for any other owner
