It also has to do with contract negotiations, 1st round rookie backs not only get paid more but then demand more for their second contracts. And the record on second contracts is not great in terms of WAR

Well some teams try to squeeze in a player in the final picks of the first round to get the 5th year option. (See Sony Michel)

I want you y'all to know three things are certain this week: 1. me pounding beers. 2. me pounding my wife. 3. Nyheim Hines pounding the ball.

Taylor v. Mack is not close. Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional, I don't care what reports are coming out of Indy.


Jay Tay is going to FEAST in this offense. Repeat: FEAST.

Well... I'd say they're not close now for sure.

Unlikely. But needless to say this would be absolutely devastating news. Given how high they drafted him and how well Hines played I don't see them bringing anyone (of relevance) in.

I think Freeman still wants to get paid, so probably not him. They probably bring someone one else in for a look and some depth, but even then he'd likely be behind Wilkins and no real threat to JT.

if i'm not mistaken, signing Freeman after week one is in the books greatly reduces the salary hit ... doesn't mean he's on his way to Indy (couple other places he might land), but his versatility suits what Phil loves to do most.

Slightly below Nyheim Hines.

you make a fair point - whether in jest or speaking truthfully this is alot more closer to truth than us JT owners would like.  I don't trust Reich to make JT the undisputed man - this is gonna be a 50-50 split.

He doesn't have to be the undisputed man.   Look at Aaron Jones' usage last year and resulting numbers.  Cream rises to the top.  Don't overthink it.

Yeah, I was thinking more about that Freeman still wants to get paid like a top RB, which I don't think the Colts (or most teams) will spring for.

I would say 70/30 or 60/40:  JT's way

Game dependent. Don't be surprised when Taylor gets 80% of the touches, if Colts are blowing out a team.

Honestly we could see this ceiling as high as A Ekeler was last season with how Rivers likes to throw to the RB. Taylor is the guy to have over Hines because of where they use him. Hines could get the reception, but Taylor is running at the goaline and will get his share
