Second round bust Parris Campbell (just 31 career receptions) has missed most of his first three NFL seasons with one injury after another. It looks like the Colts are moving away from Carson Wentz after just one season throwing to perpetually injured receivers like Campbell and T. Y. Hilton, yet Campbell somehow still retains his enticing upside:

Colts GM Chris Ballard told The Athletic's Zak Keefer, "I'm not quitting on Parris Campbell." Ballard added, "But does it mean we’re going to sit here and count on him to be our 2 or 3 right away? No. We will add competition to the position." Campbell missed 11 games with a foot injury in 2021. He suffered a season-ending knee injury in 2020 and a season-ending foot injury in 2019. Campbell entered the league with tantalizing yards after catch ability, which led to the Colts selecting him in the second round. He's entering the final year of his rookie deal with just 15 career games and an uninspiring 31-360-2 receiving line on 53 targets. Campbell still has upside to provide a playmaking element for the Colts' offense, but adding additional wide receiver talent is a clear priority for Indianapolis this offseason.

Wentz had a disastrous season according the media (spoiler alert - that’s a lie) Outside of Pittman the Colts didn’t have much to offer at receiver.

I do hope Reich stands by Wentz. I dislike Ballard greatly - he's missed on many picks like Campbell and 1sr round bust Malik Hooker. Not to mention his penchant for drafting blacks with African last names.

By my count Wentz ranked 13th in the league in quarterback rating, with a rating of 94.6. That would be above average with 32 teams in the league.

Yet the MSM makes it seem as if he's horrible. And the DWFs believe them. SMH.

Anti-White hit job looks like to me.

Although QB rating isn't the only way to measure a quarterback's effectiveness, Wentz did indeed have a pretty successful first season in Indy. He was coming back from a series of injuries, and his confidence was shot after the way he was used and abused in Philly. Indy was a borderline playoff team entering 2021 and Wentz had them in the hunt until the very end of the season.

The Colts may think it's easy to find another proven quarterback who's at least as good as Wentz, but it won't be without giving up a lot in return. Why do that when you already have a capable starter? Wentz remains a very good fit in Indy, especially with Frank Reich as his head coach. He should be given at least one more season as the starter.

I’d be surprised if the Colts could find a better option than Wentz. He was a bit shaky this season, but better than his last season in Philly. Give him a full, healthy season and I expect him to be a pro bowler next year.

Minshew to the Colts so he could reap eternal hell on my Jaguars for giving him up

DT Robert Windsor has retired. He missed all of 2021 and had 2 major surgeries, he has had difficulty recovering from those injuries so he has decided to retire. Bummer, the DT position is dwindling down for us it seems like so this doesn’t help! Best of luck to him in his post-football career.

That really sucks he was one of the most talented jacks in the draft. Injuries, Ovid and the caste system really screwed him!

WR John Hurst, who has gone viral for his incredible route running was placed on IR yesterday ending his season. He reinjured the same ankle he had surgery on this offseason.

I wonder just how good of a receivers coach Reggie Wayne actually is, particularly as it relates to Alec Pierce. Is he a bit jealous perhaps that Pierce may develop into a star, a White star at a mostly "taboo" position? Just guessing, don't have any info one way or the other. Notice that this Weenieworld blurb claims that Wayne's "main problem" was "a lack of talent to work with." Oh, really, what about the team's second round draft pick in 2022? Not even mentioned, typical ingrained anti-White racism from Weenieworld.

Reggie Wayne will remain as the Colts' receivers coach under new head coach Shane Steichen.​

Hired last March, Wayne has decided to stick around even after Frank Reich was sent packing. We would assume Wayne was more of a Jim Irsay hire, anyways. Not that Wayne isn't qualified. Wayne's main problem in 2022 was a lack of talent to work with. Hopefully the Colts get a quarterback capable of further unlocking Michael Pittman in 2023.

Hope I'm wrong and it's not a long racial apprenticeship for Pierce. Reggie Wayne did play with Brandon Stokely and saw him have
alot of success. Hope he is fair. It's unusual but many of the times black coasch's, scouts, assistants are more fair than the cucked whites.

Pierce never clicked on the field with Matt Ryan. He needs to become best friends with the new QB, whomever it is.

The "generational talent" is still hurt from last season:

Colts HC Shane Steichen said Anthony Richardson is dealing with some soreness in his right shoulder.
Richardson was spotted participating in team drills but was noticeably throwing with his left hand rather than his right. Steichen downplayed the severity of the soreness Richardson is dealing with, saying the second-year quarterback still feels well enough to play in a game if it were that time of year. Richardson’s shoulder will remain a hot topic of conversation throughout the offseason after he played in just four games last year. Richardson’s ceiling for this upcoming fantasy season is as high as that of any quarterback in the league after he averaged an impressive 27.4 fantasy points per game in the two games he appeared in start-to-finish.

His ceiling is super high. That’s the important thing!


Honestly, he sucked at Florida and he will suck in the pros.

Would love to see Flacco drag another team with an injured quota to the playoffs.
