    Matt Ryan had a tough statistical year for the Falcons in 2021. The primary reason his numbers tanked was the lack of his two primary weapons from 2020 - Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley. Ryan will return to efficient productivity as Philip Rivers did in 2020. Pacers big chance to get championship level help comes tonight in the NBA Draft Lottery. Pacers have a 10.5% chance of netting the #1 overall pick for the first time in franchise history! Phil Mickelson is a mess, and won't defend his PGA title this week.

    Quenton Nelson is a great guard, but do great guards help a team get to a Super Bowl enough to make Big Q as valuable as Chris Ballard believes he is? Do the Colts have four starting safeties - or none? Bobby Okereke made 132 tackles but only three were for a loss - is that on Okereke or former defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus? Drew Brees is out at NBC because being famous and popular does not make a person interesting and charismatic.

    Stephon Gilmore was the NFL's Defensive Player of 2019 - does the Pro Bowl corner have another season like that in him at age 32? Chris Ballard kicked the tires yesterday in a visit! The Colts have areas they must address - I explain why! Indiana will get a visit from Wichita State transfer Dexter Dennis, who is another defensive specialist (which translates to "he can't shoot"). Miles Bridges hit a little girl with a mouthguard last night. Players need to calm themselves - and fans need to act like human beings. --- Support this podcast:

    Derek Carr extension shows Colts GM Chris Ballard can be both cautious & RIGHT! IU & Butler to swap transfers?

    Derek Carr signed an extension that will pay hims over $40M per year! Mediocre quarterbacks everywhere are rejoicing, but it's Colts fans who should cheer the loudest because Ballard passed on the trade that could have destroyed the any chance to win! Butler and IU might be about to exchange statistically similar disgruntleds in a heretofore unimaginable trade. There are three kinds of people I shun. Please correct your behavior and don't be a member of any of the groups - official review/electronic strike zone fans users of "literally" those who speak in the third-person when talking about themselves! --- Support this podcast:

    Indianapolis Colts - Chris Ballard too risk averse to win? Phinisee may go to Butler! Cavs need Win!

    Ballard doesn't make mistakes in free agency because he doesn't sign free agents, and he trades first rounders for good player instead of taking shots at great ones. Can the Colts win a championship with that style of architect? Former Indiana point guard Rob Phinisee is down to Butler and Cincinnati as his home for one more season. Cavs need a win Friday for the Pacers to reap their first round pick. Juwan Howard rumored to be top candidate to replace Frank Vogel as coach of the Lakers. LA vs. Ann Arbor? Hmmm. Not much of a choice. --- Support this podcast:

    There is one prospect projected in the mid-40s that if taken would make Colts fans heads explode! He checks almost every Ballard box! Can you guess who he is? Colts fortify special teams by signing ex-Patriot Brandon King. Russell Westbrook and the Pacers are a terrible fit on the court - and an awkward fit in terms of trading for assets.

    Kinda sorta Mock Draft ideas for Chris Ballard - his picks need to include Jahan Dotson, Jeremy Ruckert, Jaylin Armour-Davis, Braxton Jones, and any receiver named Austin! Not too much to ask, is it? Pacers need to lance some boils, and sign some Lance! If the Pacers can deal their two player/CEOs, that works for me too! And for the next few days, let's go Cavs! Indiana will be able to go nine deep with quality next year (if Xavier Johnson and Trayce Jackson-Davis return), so they need to finish fifth to show progress --- Support this podcast:
