Indianapolis Colts: The Schedule

In the third of a series of offseason reviews looking at the Colts moves Steve Ovenden (@HappyHappySteve) takes a look at schedule for the 2020 season

It is the time of the year to find out when we are going to see our team play.  We are currently living in some unprecedented times and quite expectedly we are having to change the way we do things.  Almost all sport has been a victim of these changes, well, apart from one of course.  The NFL has been pretty much the exception to the rule so far, carrying on with its off season relatively normally.  It is the intention for football to go ahead as planned.  As this is the case, it is time to look at what the season has in store.  In this case, let us look at the Indianapolis Colts 2020 schedule. read more

Indianapolis Colts Draft Review

In the second of a series of offseason reviews looking at the Colts moves Steve Ovenden (@HappyHappySteve) takes a look at the NFL Draft

After a solid performance with Free Agency, the Colts turned their attention to the Draft.  With nine picks, there was plenty to work with to improve the team even further.  A vital element this year was to address the depth at skill positions and address this problem they did.  The first four picks consisted of a Wide Receiver, Running Back, Quarterback and a Safety.  A great show of intent by the Colts to prove they are looking to improve now and safeguard their future. read more

Indianapolis Colts Free Agency Review

In the first of a series of offseason reviews looking at the Colts moves Steve Ovenden (@HappyHappySteve) takes a look at Free Agency

After a disappointing second half of the season, the Indianapolis Colts needed to address some needs in the off season.  A season without a first-string Quarterback, a mass of injuries and a lack of strength in the depth of the squad, having a good Free Agency and Draft were especially important this year.  So how have the Colts done so far? Let us take a look. read more

The Importance of the Backup Quarterback

Ross Waddell (@RossWaddell92) takes a look at the importance of the back up quarterback position following Andy Dalton’s signing with the Cowboys.

I woke up early on Sunday morning to the news that Dallas had signed former Bengals QB, Andy Dalton to a one year deal worth up to $7m. Instantly, I read a number of takes ranging from this being another excellent move in a promising offseason to this move indicating a reluctant admission that the Cowboys may need to move on from current starter Dak Prescott should be be unwilling to sign a long term extension with America’s Team. read more

NFL Draft: Are the Cowboys now a Super Bowl favourite?

According to draft experts, the initial indications are that the Cowboys have secured a top 10 2020 draft class. So what have they added? Ross Waddell (@RossWaddell92) takes a look.

The NFL draft brings new hope and new stories to the NFL. It’s a time when the vast majority of fans begin to forget the traumas of the previous season and are filled with optimism that this year might finally be their year. 

The Dallas Cowboys have come out of the draft with a highly rated rookie pool headlined by first round pick WR CeeDee Lamb and second round CB Trevon Diggs.

In a strong wide receiver class, they added a universally regarded top three wide out in Oklahoma star CeeDee Lamb to add to the new $100m man, Amari Cooper, and ascending third year wideout, Michael Gallup, who arguably still went under the radar on the national level despite a breakout sophomore season recording over 1,100 yards despite missing two games due to injury in the early portion of the season. By owner Jerry Jones’ own admission, they never expected the Oklahoma wide receiver to be available at pick #17 and the Cowboys had been, realistically, focusing their attention on LSU DE K’Lavon Chaisson, a talented but raw pass rusher, and corners AJ Terrell and, at one time, CJ Henderson.  read more

NFL Draft 2020: Winners and Losers

Josh Capps look back at the weekend’s draft and gives us three winners and three losers.

Let us know how you think your team did and what you would have done differently.

WINNERS

BALTIMORE RAVENS

It is hard to think the Ravens needed many additions after a 14-win season, but the Ravens did what the Ravens do best, and loaded Lamar Jackson’s offence with even more weapons. The running back J.K Dobbins will pair up with Ingram, and the addition of two wide receivers in Duvernay and Proche will give further options to Lamar when he decides to look downfield. Some very smart picks that should see Baltimore in the hunt again. read more

Final Mock Draft – Falcons, Jaguars and Broncos all go up to get their guys

Ash Till brings us the final mock draft of the year. There are six trades, four quarterbacks and penty of tackles

1. Bengals – Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

The Bengals take their franchise guy. The Ohio kid returns home to give this franchise a new and exciting era.

2. Redskins – Chase Young, Edge, Ohio State

The Redskins take the best player in the draft, let’s not overthink this.

3. Lions – Isiah Simmons, Defence, Clemson

The longer this process has gone on the less I’m convinced the lions get this trade done. Lions stick and pick, and for me Simmons is one of a kind, giving the Lions a defensive piece like no other. read more
