Having sucess isn't the problem, keeping it is the issue. That's why only good front offices like Baltimore, and Green Bay can stay relevant for so long. They find talent even in late draft positions.
For instance, John Fox is one of the more conservative coaches in the league. He loves the "RUN THE BALL STOP THE RUN" philosophy. And yet he was wise enough to give the offense to Manning do whatever he wanted because he knew Manning gave them the best chance to win.
..but that's crazy! Luck is all ready one of the best QBs in the league. How can you not build around him? Almost every good team relies on a QB. Even the Raven's needed Flacco to have a historic post-season to win the superbowl.
If the team derails by next season having the "RUN THE BALL STOP THE RUN" mantra, he will have to make a change.
Irsay feels like he is under pressure due to the large sucess that Manning is having this season. So he is breaking under pressure
It's not baseball or hockey. It's only four games the best team doesn't always win in such a high variance sport.
ugh. PLEASE dont talk about Jim Irsay. he is an embarassment. love his enthusiasm and how much he wants to be involved, but he needs to learn when to shut up.
You need depth. You need those middle round picks (4th, 5th, 6th) to stay in the roster and play in case the team looses their first, and second string players.

- From Fanatic.
You're supposed to over react to everything. That's what Fanatics do.
I would have liked to see Toler earn his money, like how Darius Butler had to last year. That's how you find diamonds in the rough.
Honestly, I think Grigson just spent the money to spend the money. There really wasn't a lot of effort put into keeping costs down.
Notice that all those adjectives carrier journeyman, never a starter could be used to describe Toller!
Wondering at what point do Colts start using T Rich is more open spread passing concepts.....Open the field up more and allow defenses not to confuse Luck.....Gruden kept talking about defense "walking around and confusing the quarterback"....it is more than overdue that the Colts adjust to the fact that the burst he had at Alabama simply ISNT THERE ANYMORE and force teams to show their coverages and exploit matchups, rather than being predictable and trying to force things that arent there. Let Luck be the field general he needs to be to bring this Offense to the next level.
For a good gm draft position shouldn't matter. You can find players to contribute in any pick in the draft.
@hankster because you win by "RUN THE BALL AND STOP THE RUN!"
We're trying to win despite Andrew Luck, and that is just so, so, SOOOOOO stupid.
@hankster baseball isn't a good comp. Any given night a pitcher can get hot and a bad team will beat a good team.
A NBA playoff series is a better comp. The better team always wins a 4 game series.
@hankster If he wanted to burn money he could have given me some.
@chewie_33 who lead in tackles because the cuz the Chargers targeted him every play!
@RobertItoh McGlynn will finish the season with Thomas out for the year.
@chewie_33 yeah that was horrible.
@hankster once if i'm not mistaken
@chewie_33 It is harder though.
Grigson hasn't been able to find late round depth, and that is coming back to biting him this season. In the cases you said Fleener was seen as a reach and Werner as a misfit.
@GregC @chewie_33 @hankster Patriots are not a great drafting team. http://www.weei.com/sports/boston/football/patriots/christopher-price/2013/04/24/worst-draft-picks-bill-belichick-era
Don't dispute that they have found great picks in their draft, but have arguably reached for bad players way too many times. Just like Colts. #18 and #12 bail out team following bad picks
@chewie_33 @hankster no. It's impossible. Look at the Patriots and Steelers and Giants. Those GREAT drafting teams are struggling. Drafting is really really luck-based. You're being way unreasonable if you think a good GM should just find players.
Look at Grigson. He's great at drafting, right? Why can't he find contributors in the 5-6-7 rounds? Why isn't Werner an impact-player? Why is Fleener shaky?
There's a lot of luck.
