The Colts are not a top 5 team. They are like the Saints where yes that offense can be potent, but with the defense being super porous (90 points in 2 games) and not defensive talent being added the typical 30 points per game won't be enough. With the Texans and Jags adding all that talent they will be lucky to win that division as well.
@Walter: My friend you are unfortunately in what I like to call the "sh t twi-light zone." I have been following your NBA picks for the last few days or so and......Damn son, you are at ground zero of the already mentioned "....zone." We have all been there and like a bad taco,..."this to will pass." Tonight s debacle was a missed 2nd free throw by Toronto that would have at least gave you a push. Hang in there man.....just brutal three or four games.

I have studied the NFL Draft every day for about the past five years.
With this NFL Draft preseason, I have simply had it. I am done.
I have noticed something very interesting. Ever since Mike Mayock moved Aaron Curry from No. 1 to No. 7 on his big board, now officially every prospect has been nitpicked.
Every prospect's draft stock has been up. Every prospect's draft stock has been down.
It's completely stupid.
From now on, no player is good enough. Every quarterback rated highly will be picked apart like there is no tomorrow.
Many analysts said Matt Ryan had bad accuracy, was inconsistent, and threw too many interceptions.
I know, I ate my crow.
Now, people are saying the same things about Matt Stafford.
At some point, we are getting to a place where there is far too much overanalysis and overscouting.
Every draftnik should now anticipate that every player will be nitpicked thanks to the media. Expect for reporters and television analysts to say that every player's stock is up and down at some point.
Do not bring the knee-jerk decisions. You have to take everything in stride and simply realize that this is a long process, and to not believe everything you hear.
Hey, I thought at least Curry was safe, but I guess I could not have been more wrong.
