He may or may not turn out to be good with the draft and intra-NFL free agents, but I love how Grigson keeps looking for these unconventional guys.I'm really excited about Adongo next year

Because I see it often enough to decide to point it out now:Receiving "corps", not "core"

"basically, the Colts needs this season are the same ones Grigson threw gobs of money at last season"Yeah, but the positions you named are almost every single position in the game.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Grigson, Colts Entering Crucial, Defining Off-season
@hankster@AJ_@thejoshbakerTo be fair, I think the idea is a scenario where Luck is down for a few games, not knocked out of the season entirely. A good backup could save an otherwise lost playoff spot.
@Fot Bollar Reading that, I initially thought, "DHB?!"But I guess if he can be had for cheap and he's willing to play special teams, yeah, they should re-sign him.

You're right. Time to fire up Kerbal Space Program.
1 month, 4 weeks ago on Colts Notebook in Pictures: Two Key Scoring Plays
@MarcusDugan@hanksterI think that picture is much too busy for a speech bubble, with almost no negative space, and doesn't really call for one anyway.The way you ended up doing it in the article was I think the right decision.They're by far best on those zoomed out overhead shots. The tiny players add to the humor, and the bubbles actually serve a purpose because the picture itself is lacking emotion or context. The "green 80"/"gotcha" ones are good as they so adroitly express what's going on in two pictures that otherwise just look motionless, and the "rawr" one serves a similar function while at the same time highlighting the player in question where normally a circle or something would be used.
I have to say I really got a kick out of the speech bubbles.
As long as you continue to use them sparingly, I look forward to the next round!

No argument here on pass > run
But, in fairness,
The Den rushing D is very stout at -18.8DVOA (5th), ranked one better than SEA. (Just Den pass D sucks)
TRich has poor ypc and DVOA, but he actually has a very good success rate at 48% (11th). I don't understand how that works, but I would guess that it means getting tackled in the backfield, making unsuccessful runs VERY unsuccessful, is why. And no long runs. He only has the one fumble, so it's not that.
Jax was his first game&running the clock all game, so a pass.
Next is Sea, awesome D and only 2 weeks on the team.
Next is SD, bad game.
Next is Den, awesome run D and Broncos expecting ball control Colts O
I'm of the opinion that he's not that horrible yet, it's just as likely that he'll get better with the second half cupcake sched, aside from the sunk draft pick cost he's very cheap and has lots of tread still, even then a late 1st pick the next year isn't that bad, and considering he'll be around through the season bar injury no matter what, I'll wait until the end of the season to decide whether to get worked up about his performance.
tl;dr I'm fine with yelling about strategy, less so basing that on the idea that TR sucks. After all, even with Purple Jesus Luck should be the star.

Good video but a bit disappointed the D got no love.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Colts Authority Video Breakdown: Third Down Success against Seattle
Reading this writeup about all the tough things the Colts need to account for, I can't help but think how much of a &-$% nightmare it must be to look at Luck from the other side. I mean, weaknesses? Do any exist?
It's downright unfair going from Manning to Luck with only one bad year in between. Glad I'm from Indy and a Colts fan.

This article is fantastic--informative, fun to read, and with decidedly successful attempts at humor sprinkled throughout. The Chargers video part at the end had me going.
In the sense that they aren't so much to cause damage as to shift defense away from the head, that sounds reasonable.
Body blows sounds stupid, but I'm really starting to get the feeling that this coaching staff likes to use meathead language while they play chess.
