NFL teams are excited about his potential, but that doesn’t mean they’re sold. He’s a far less of a prospect than Patrick Mahomes was a year ago. Also, learn about Western Kentucky’s Mike White; he is this year’s surprise first-round quarterback.
The battle between Saquon Barkley and Derrius Guice will be a fun debate all year. Hopefully both stay healthy this season, because if they do, they could both be top-five draft picks.
“We want to get off to a great start,” Pagano told the assembled media Wednesday at the Colts training facility. “If we focus on the results, and not the process, we’ll get screwed up. The process has no fear.”
This is an ideal crystallization of Pagano’s circumstance. There has been public debate about his employment following each of the past two seasons, both of which ended with the Colts out of the playoffs, but Pagano still has the job. Indianapolis has only missed the playoffs in four of the past 18 seasons, half of those on his watch.
It is about results, though, or the process? Is owner Jim Irsay interested in placating the segment of the fan base frustrated by the Colts’ persistent failures on defense, with none of Pagano’s teams ranking in the top 10 in total D? Or is the idea, now that controversial general manager Ryan Grigson has been replaced by former Chiefs executive Chris Ballard, to build under a coach who has been Cheap NFL Jerseys Usa in charge of three teams that went 11-5 and as recently as January 2015 coached the Colts in the AFC championship game?
The results of the past two seasons were at least partly the product of the team’s superstar quarterback being unavailable or compromised. Luck lost a chunk of 2015 with a lacerated kidney, then dealt with the shoulder issue that undermined his 2016 effectiveness and required surgery at Cheap Qld Basketball Jerseys the end.
