@hankster I screamed and cried when they passed on Hopkins to draft a project pass rusher.

Pedantry alert: It's "desiccated". Perhaps you were thinking "desecrated", which would also be OK.

I feel like Luck's success rate got much better in the later parts of the season, especially with those skinny posts in the back of the end zone (TY Hilton's grab against the Pats being a good example).

Totally agree. Just wanted to point out that from a purely statistical perspective, this rookie class had some things going in their favor. I'm hugely excited to see what they can do as sophomores.
6 months, 2 weeks ago on T.Y. Hilton and Dwayne Allen look like huge steals after one year
The only part about this that may be a little misleading is that our rookies didn't play because they broke into a roster with entrenched starters. They got reps because we had NOBODY ELSE. Just getting on the field is tough for most rookies, even if they turn out to be really good later. So that's skewing the contribution numbers a bit compared to other rookies.

@DougEngland BRB, forwarding this to Brad Wells.
"DougEngland should lose his job. Yes I know that he doesn't work for the Colts. He should still be fired for saying something so idiotic."
@naptown_ninja Polian called HIMSELF a bad talent evaluator at O-line, and I would have to say he was correct. He rarely picked anyone that stuck for very long, and the o-line was terrible for YEARS.
The great part is that he can throw accurately on the run from either side of the field, unlike a Plummer our Schaub, so rollouts are way harder to defend because they can go to either side of the field.

@squirrel You've gotta find some way to drive pageviews in the dead of the offseason.
Hear hear. A pistol would actually be great, because the qb can play action and read the defense st the same time.
In his senior bowl cutups he makes a nice swim move at the NT position and absolutely buries the tailback in the backfield. Good stuff, hope to see him develop well.

@Kyle Rodriguez I would agree.
7 months ago on Colts trade C A.Q. Shipley for conditional draft pick
Woof. This is officially a crap trade. Shipping off a proven starter with a rookie as your only depth for a conditional 7th is not a good decision, at all.
I loved our draft haul last year, but most of the other personnel moves Grigson has made, from McGlynn to Walden, have been pretty questionable. I'm really wondering whether he's actually a very good GM. Next season will be big.
I dunno, I still see a center with mediocre technique and limited athleticism.
I don't think grigson was shopping Shipley. Ravens are thin at center and likely came with an offer. Taking the conditional pick means Grigson knows Shipley is good enough to stick with the ravens. And we don't know the terms of the deal yet, if he can manage to recoup the fourth spent on Hughes it may be a good deal.
As Greg said though, you can set your watch by Grigson doing the opposite of what he says. No more cauldron of competition at center.
@couchspud44 Agreed. I have a lot of faith in our organization to get the most out of guys, especially after what we've seen in the past year...definitely don't think that Bruce Arians was the glue holding it all together.
7 months ago on What to Expect 2013: John Boyett
I like Boyett but don't have high hopes: his injury is extremely rare and recovery stats are hard to find...the last NFL player with the same injury never made it back to the league. But we'll see, it's nice that he got the surgery mid-season so he'll have about a year of rehab before training camp starts.
Thornton looks like a great pickup all around IMO. He was under the radar but that's often a good thing with linemen; you can pick up tremendous talent later on and on the cheap.

@DougEngland My relationship with this draft is pretty much the same as my relationship with the last. One or two picks I'm hyped about and a bunch of head scratchers. Let's hope the payoff is somewhat similar.

@RvHauler1 ACL surgery has come leaps and bounds even in the last ten years. As you say though, time will tell.
