»The series begins with the immediate consequences of that playoff loss for the Chiefs. When he addresses his team in the locker room after the game, coach Frank Reich acknowledges the work done by his team, which at that time had won 10 of its last 12 games, counting the postseason, after a start of 1-5 . "It was an incredible race, I love them and I appreciate them, man, the way they fight, this has been an incredible race, I know we're disappointed today, but, men, I just tell them: I love what We have, I love what we did this year. "
»Reich, using his comparison of" mountaineering ", concludes with this for his team:" It's hard to get to Everest the first time you're going to climb it, okay? But I know this, I learned this: although this year we did not make it At the top all year long, we got quite far on that mountain, and you know what, that makes us learn for the next time, do not we? We'll do it all the way until next time, and now we know the way to get there. We know what is needed, we know what is needed between us, and we get the boys to do that here, to get to the top. "
»The tight end Eric Ebron then offers an emotional speech to his teammates:" Nobody takes anything away from us and what we did this year ". I appreciate them all and I love them all. We know this is not going to be the same next year, that's how it is. But we have a team of ——, boy.
"Then, the real theme of the series, the Colts' scouting staff, starts backing up a bit, starting with general manager Chris Ballard. He talks about how he can say that the wardrobe has made great progress. "The disappointment for the loss (of the Chiefs) and also seeing the resistance when they entered the building the next few days, and there are a lot of guys here working now that they do not need to be." … We still have work to do. But it does tell us that we have the wardrobe in the right direction. We have a group of men who are responsible for each other, who care about winning. Winning means something to them, their performance means something to them and their teammates mean something to them. That is something positive for us in the future. "
»Here's the fun part: head over to the Colts recruiting room, where you'll have the opportunity to see staff members at work, perhaps less recognized. Ballard said that whoever is in the room, from Ed Dodds, the badistant general manager of the Colts, to the team's exploration interns, expects the same kind of information. "One of the most important things is to tell me what you think. Tell me what you really think. I did not hire you to tell you what to do; I hired him to tell me what he thinks of his experience and the work he has done. "
»Then you listen to the scouts give their opinion, good and bad, about the players who have been watching. The episode concludes with Dodds and Ballard discussing a specific player: "Do you want to recruit this guy?" Dodds asks while looking at Ballard.
The episode next Wednesday, which will be available at 8 p.m. ET on April 10, will offer an in-depth look at the player's exploration process during the NFL's Senior Bowl and Exploration Combination.
