  1. Rashaan Melvin To Raiders [Merge]

    It was totally for giggles, and anyone could find a post of mine from a year ago where I had a different opinion, it's not uncommon at all, especially with something as fluid as the NFL. If I got any sense that it was some massive faux pas to do something like that, I definitely wouldn't have.
  2. Rashaan Melvin To Raiders [Merge]

    I value all of those posters’ opinions, that’s why I pulled their quotes specifically. Not to mention, I was in agreement with them at this point last year as well, so I’m in that group of people who wasn’t particularly comfortable with Melvin going into the 2017 season as the starter opposite Vontae Davis. I didn’t comment in that particular thread, otherwise I would’ve gladly included my take along with theirs. My only intentions were to give some perspective on Rashaan Melvin after he had 1 solid season with us, I was not trying to make anyone look bad.
  3. Rashaan Melvin To Raiders [Merge]

    Man, this forum has significantly changed it's tune on Melvin since this thread from a year ago LOL. Some notable comments: "Melvin is not good." - Superman "Melvin is decent depth... I don't want to go into the season with him starting on the outside, but he had some good games last season. Worth a roster spot, imo." - Carlos Danger "Melvin is nothing more than depth at cb. We can get a better option as a starter with one of our 4th rd picks if not earlier." - Hoosiersavge "If we go into the season with Melvin as our second corner-even if they draft a rookie, I'd be worried." - Northern Blue "Melvin is a good #4 Corner, nothing more." - BProland85 "I view him as an ok #4 CB and good #5 CB..." - TheRustonRifle#7
  4. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    I know that, but he's probably looking for a payday that just isn't there. My guess is he gets re-signed by Ballard.
  5. CB Phillip Gaines to visit Colts

    I seriously doubt he's being brought in for anything else other than a special teams role. He's not beating out Quincy Wilson or Pierre Desir for a starting job LOL.
  6. Chris Ballard’s Moneyball (BallardBall)

    The salary cap is the exact reason to utilize the moneyball approach in the NFL. It's way easier to fill out a 90 player roster with diamond in the rough type players and stay under the cap than it is to hand out giant contracts to a few guys and be up against the cap every single year. Analytics is also a big part of the moneyball approach as well, so it shouldn't be a surprise when guys like Margus Hunt and Al Woods come in and have productive seasons.
  7. He hasn't missed a game in 4 years.
  8. In Norwell's case it was probably a combination of all those. Indy's a tough sell when you have San Francisco, New York, and Jacksonville courting you as well. And my guess is that he chose the Jags largely because there's no state income tax in Florida. If Indy wanted to win his services they would've probably had to shell out roughly $17mil/year to offset that, and there's no way he's worth that much.
  9. Because they're going to be in salary cap hell in no time. It'll be a fun product to watch for a season or 2, but then they're gonna have to pay their young guys like Jalen Ramsey once their rookie deals are up. And let's not forget, this isn't the first time the Jaguars have "won the offseason," & it has yet to materialize into a Super Bowl ring.
  10. Eric Ebron to visit Colts Sunday

    Doyle/Ebron duo could definitely create some mismatches for defenses, I'd like to see this one happen.
  11. Mike Silver Calls out Ballard

    We don't know that. The big "names" are gone, but how many could've actually made a difference? I could argue that Allen Robinson? Sammy Watkins? Andrew Norwell? The only one I was really on board with was Norwell, and he chose to go elsewhere, nothing you can do when a guy has 5 teams to choose from. And keep in mind that with Moncrief's departure, we have ZERO picks left from the '13 & '14 drafts. ZERO. That's a huge mess to clean up, & having a GM to manage that cap money wisely & patiently is going to pay dividends when it's all said & done.
  12. Mike Silver Calls out Ballard

    Overall I'd say it's pretty even keel, but it definitely depends on the topic. At one point there were so many "Fire Grigson," "Fire Pagano," "Trent Richardson Sucks" threads that I questioned whether or not I really wanted to hang around, but now that all of that has passed, it's much more level-headed. We all have our moments though... especially in the offseason when we all become NFL GMs and know exactly what we need to do to get back to the Super Bowl. I'm just looking forward to the draft and getting past this free agency period.
  13. Mike Silver Calls out Ballard

    I'm in a couple of Colts groups on Facebook, it's REAL bad over there. Twitter's rough with this nonsense as well, but way easier to avoid the dummies. The most level-headed spot I've been to the past few days though has been the Colts Reddit channel, it's not nearly as childish as the other 2.

    Sorry, I thought this was a thread about drinking... I'll see myself out.
  15. [Merge] Colts Sign Denico Autry

    Look at all the great pass rush defenses from the past few years, all of them had multiple guys that could get to the QB from multiple spots on the defense. I have no problem adding pass rushers upon pass rushers.
