Bears’ Allen Robinson III a perfect fit for the Indianapolis Colts

From the mothership…

Why it makes sense: We love the fit as a do-it-all receiver option opposite Michael Pittman Jr. But the Colts rarely spend big. Is Robinson attainable coming off a down year statistically? Maybe that’s when Indy pounces. — Fowler Scheme fit: Robinson is a smooth route runner with the physical traits to make contested catches. And opposite of Pittman in Indianapolis, the veteran wide receiver can be deployed as a vertical target in the slot and on play-action in-breakers. — Bowen

Previously on the blog, I discussed the current QB situation in Indianapolis. Much like we need to address the QB situation this off season, the Indianapolis Colts’ front office, headed up by GM Chris Ballard, will need to add a viable deep threat option so as to open up the pass game entirely.

Adding Robinson to the team would have an immediate impact on the Indianapolis offense. Him being available as not only a deep option, but a deep threat, will open up the offense. This will give Pittman Jr. More mid range options as the opposing defense will need to cover and game plan for Allen Robinson.

Adding Allen Robinson to an already stout offense. Another facet to opening up the true potential of the offense would be Allen Robinson’s effect on the run game. Jonathon Taylor is already an absolute menace in the NFL. Led the league in rushing. Now imagine what he could possibly do with the defense having to cover the deep ball. Doing so, limits the defenses ability to stuff the box and in doing so stop the run. Now they weren’t able to stop Jonathon Taylor before, I wince imagining what he would be able to do to them now.

My favorite aspect of this whole possibility is the type of player the Colt’s would be getting from Allen Robinson. Robinson is sneaky one of the most dominant receivers in the game. I think should the Bears have been able to get any sense of an offense going during the Matt Nagy era, but this era has cast just a looming shadow over Allen Robinson’s dominant game. That’s a type of player I love to go and get. The type of guys that I know will make an absolutely game changing and immediate impact while also not making so many ripples within the news cycle to have teams reevaluate us and pump our egos. That is what I am not here for. I want my Colt’s to have a chip on their shoulder.

We’ve consistently compete despite all evidence that that really shouldn’t be the case. But now they’ve gotten good enough to actually let you down when they fail. The realization that we are in our window of opportunity to win right now, with our offensive line, Jonathon Taylor on his rookie deal, and Darius Leonard tied down, has to be very apparent in Indy.

Moves need made in Indianapolis. Do I think the Colt’s need to go and get him? Yes. Am I paid millions and millions of dollars for my analytical knowledge and proof that I can cultivate a competitive franchise, No. So as I do in all cases, even to my own detriment with the Carson Wentz trade, I will be hopelessly optimistic in my genuine confidence that Chris Ballard will be able to get this done, and if not, he already has a contingency plan in place to address the offenses deep threats.

Indiana loses a Heartbreaker to Wisconsin. There goes the Big Dance…

Going into this game. Mike Woodson had to be feeling some pressure. I mean these aren’t trul HIS guys. By that I just mean he didn’t really recruit anyone other than our transfers and I will add keeping Trayce Jackson-Davis to that, because as far as I’m concerned he had to recruit him to IU from the NBA draft. Even though these aren’t really HIS guys Mike Woodson came into this game seeking to keep this year from looking straight out of the Archie Miller era. Get everyone’s hopes up in December. Play like crap and tank any shot at the tournament come February. Mike Woodson needed this win to prove to Hoosier Nation and the Indiana boosters that he is going to be changing this program right out of the gate. And what did we just witness…

Not. That.

Devastating. Absolutely devastating. Last night, Wisconsin beat Indiana 72-69. In what was a dramatic game coming down right to the last minute. Indiana got beat in the Holy Cathedral of Basketball that is Assembly Hall. At one point in this game Indiana missed 8 of 13 layups. That with any missed free throws is unacceptable. Indiana seems to leave points on the table as often as a team can sometimes.

What a heartbreaking turn of events. This season looks poised to end just like the last few seasons. In disappointment. God forbid they hole the NCAA tournament in the middle of the season. If that were the case we’d be March Madness mainstays. Our first half of the season and the second always look like it would have to be two entirely different teams playing them.

The annual tailspin is full speed ahead right now, and you know what really sucks… It doesn’t even bother me like it used to. This Indiana team has gotten me used to getting my hopes up only to fall. I’m basically a master at coping following losses like this at this point. So sad.

I mean Indiana has dropped the ball so often that coping with this exact situation is almost learned behavior at this point. I don’t see anyway Indiana turns this around and gets a bid in the tournament barring a miraculous run in the Big Ten Tournament.

This post was far less a recap of the game and more so a rant on the state of Indiana Basketball so I apologize.

My “Top 10 Super Bowl commercials” list unraveled into a reflection on the state of super bowl commercials.

This is ultimately a personal reflection. A personal reflection I am sharing with you.

I can’t believe it.

Nothing. Not a single commercial.

Not a single one has any charm or value in my personal opinion and if you argue for one I’m not going to hear it. You’ve just forgotten how good they were at one time.

Super Bowl commercials are done for. They no longer carry the same prestige as they have before. Unfortunately, the state of the super bowl commercial is in shambles compared to its previous glory. The quality of each advertisement and the humor or originality is entirely sliding on a downward trajectory year after year. And it is sad. I believe I also have the answer as to why this is the case. The culprit is the same catalyst for changes throughout our entire world, the mothaluvin’ internet.

Every company is looking to go viral now with their marketing. Meaning a lot of their online campaigns are their best and brightest advertising minds heading those. Without having to wait for the super bowl commercials ideas that may be reserved over the course of a year for THE Super Bowl commercial that year. Now can see just as many eyes on the internet as it can on super bowl Sunday, so there’s no need to reserve your best work for it.

Just from top to bottom, the state of commercials this year was sub par. I have to believe anyone under the age of 18 has to be like “what is these boomers obsession with commercials during the super bowl?”. The answer is at one point in time Super Bowl commercials were the highest form of art.

A commercial directed by Stanley Kubrik.

I mean the HIGHEST FORM.
