I don't begrudge the kid staying. It's fine. If he's staying to be a kid and a student (and by all accounts he's a good one of each) then whatever. But I do agree a top 10 pick going back to hopefully improve his draft status (and again I'm not saying he is) is crazy in this new NFL financial environment. It would cost him more to Locker it then he stands to make if he nails it, no?


Agree with this. He's way more likely to follow Locker's path (or worse) than Luck's. Not a smart move career-wise, but, like Peeker said, if he just wants to enjoy his youth, then whateva.

Hopefully he hasn't carried that Uber-Christian thing to virginity like Tebow has, though. If that's the case, then he's got no damn reason to be staying in school. :cheers:

How many 1rd picks does it take to get the 2012 #1 overall if Indy does not get it?
Option 1: St Louis
Option 2: Minnisota

Depends on the order they fall in. If the Colts fall all the way to #3, then the overall cost comes down because you are willing to go to either 1 or 2 and take either QB.

Bad news:

Colts still have #1 all but locked up. Unless they win next week again.

Current opponenet win% - Colts (.531), Vikings (.567), Rams (.589). Those include the records of the teams they still need to play.

Good news:

If the Colts do lose their last game, it crosses off another 4 loss team (Jax).


Still holding out hope Minnesota wins out (Skins/Bears) putting us in the mix for #3.

3 1st rounders no matter if it's Minny or St Louis. Toss McCoy in for sweetener.

No way. I would pay whatever it took, but there is no way someone is getting 3 firsts to drop 2 spot. I don't care who you are getting.

What really makes my Ulcer bleed is that if Pontbriand doesn't snap a ball off of Alex Mack's fucking leg, St Louis all but has the #1 pick locked up.

Yeah, but then we'd be picking around 10.

If the Jags had just run the ball we'd be in the mix for #1.
