So, here's what I'm thinking. A proper Open Letter To Grigson and scouts. None of this open letter jazz where you ramble on as if you're some kind of GM, and pretend your opinions of what we should do as a franchise will ever be taken into account.
No, this side post will hopefully remain a very strict board with nothing but draft prospects, "gems", reasonable talent we might find available. Please try to refrain from mentioning, "we could get him in the second round"...I'm not entirely opposed to this, but as of now my thought is to let the real GM's determine that. Yes it can be nice at times to have an idea of where they may fall to, but it also sort of taints the genuine purpose I'm trying to achieve from this. Opinions can be helpful no doubt, but keeping a minimalist and easy to read comment section trumps all. If collectively you all feel differently, than perhaps we can discuss it in another post?? I'm open to making this the best and cleanest reference possible.
I don't ever expect Grigson or anyone to actually look over this, but if by chance he did, it'd be nice to keep it organized and easy to navigate for him. Let's make it useful to fans and any potential Colts personnel. If it saves Grigson five minutes, that's five minutes more he'll have to turn over a few more stones. If it provides us fans a great reference that isn't littered with typical stampede banter...that would be an accomplishment in itself on this blog.
Let's have a clean list of draft prospects with nothing more than the name, school, position, size, speed sorta stats etc..., AND ONLY a link to video highlights other than that. Perhaps a quick hype sentence if you feel really compelled.
If we can maintain this, not only will we have an awesome scroll board of talent to look thru in the coming weeks, but any scouts that happen to peruse through here just might...just might find a guy to help the team. Not that we'd ever know it, but if we do this right, fans could be partially responsible for uncovering some hidden gem for our Colts this year.
There's no comment police obviously, but to reiterate; it would be SUPER cool to have a clean comment section with posts of: the Player's Name/w a few details & a link(s) to Highlights only.
Post away Colts fans!
