Default Colts wanted to draft TJ Yates

"Polian would also like Colts fans to know that he almost came up with a better solution than Curtis Painter as his quarterback this season.

“We were getting ready to draft [T.J. Yates] in the very same round,” Polian said via the Indianapolis Star. “Houston picked before us if I’m not mistaken. Should we have taken him a round earlier? Yes, without question.” "

Awesome! I think Yates will ultimately be one of those players that a lot of teams are going to regret passing over for 4-5 rounds.

They can have their Luck. I'm drinking Yaterade!

Should have included the next line in the article:

The Colts didn’t have a pick in the fifth round when Yates was drafted.

The funny part about this entire story, Indy actually traded their 5th rounder to Washington to grab Ben Ijalana. Washington traded us that pick to move up and select Roy Helu. We actually used Indy's original 5th rounder to select Yates.

So we basically used Indy's 5th rounder to get Yates? Perhaps Yates is the anti-curse!!!

Also, TJ was the 9th out of 12 quarterbacks taken in the 2011 draft. He simply wasn't as sought after as these teams are implying. Revisionist is EXACTLY right. This is reeks of the career spinwagon running rampant. A whole bunch of pathetic job-saving coulda, woulda, or shoulda last ditch comments.

Eff them all. He's 10000000000% Kubiak's work. I remember Kubiak saying something like... TJ was too good of a value to pass up so we took him despite not looking for a QB. Good going, Gary!

Agree with Nitro, we've got to give credit where it's due. And Kubiak and Smith deserve high praise for drafting Yates when QB was not a specific need.

Not only that, but drafting a project QB when his job was on the line. Balls.

Definetly the work of Kubiak, it seems whoever has been thrown out under center knows what there doing.



Fairly new here, mostly a lurker, but I have always been a supporter of Kubiak's work on offense and his ability to have players(especially QB's) ready. Even Sage Rosenfels was prepared, its just that Kubiak wasn't prepared for the Rosencopter..
