  1. Honest question: What's your angle here? Is everyone supposed to agree with you and start hating McDaniels? I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, but I'm having a hard time understanding your end game here. Unless it's just to get a reaction on a message board... but again, I'm trying to give you a little credit.
  2. RUMOR: Possible Important Luck Health Update....

    I think they're just joshing... We can say that now, right?
  3. Should the Colts trade for Bobby Wagner?

    We need picks so we can acquire good players. Picks are overrated at times. I'm not saying we should give up a lot to trade for Wagner, but at the right price I'd probably be all about it. If he was hitting FA this offseason, I think we'd all be willing to pay him top tier money. I'd give up a reasonable pick for him.
  4. RUMOR: Possible Important Luck Health Update....

    How is this not "I know a guy"? Emphasis mine: This is fourth hand information, at best. The poster here 1) knows a guy who 2) knows a guy who 3) heard that Nagy said (note, didn't hear Nagy say, but heard that Nagy said) that 4) Nagy was told... And we don't even know who told Nagy this. If it wasn't Ballard or someone with direct knowledge of Luck's condition, then that's a fifth person. And we don't know the buddy that's "a pretty honest dude," nor do we know who he supposedly knows in the Chiefs organization, or where that person supposedly heard that Nagy said what he supposedly said. If this isn't "I know a guy," then I don't know what is. We also don't have any idea who this new poster is, and that's not a slight to the poster, but anyone can say anything on the Internet. If someone with a reputation for being credible said it, I'd still have a significant amount of skepticism; this new poster has no reputation at all, at least not around here. And speaking for me personally, that's the reason for my skepticism, not because of the nature of the "information." It's because it's not even close to being substantiated. Even if this rumor was that Luck has been throwing for weeks and looking great, but the Colts have been hiding it because they're tired of being second guessed and just want everyone to see it for themselves, I'd still be dismissive of it. I'm not going to be convinced that Luck is ready to play until I see him play.
  5. Forgot about Scherff, he's playing well. I haven't done any actual grading on either player. I've watched them both, and I want to rewatch both before the Combine. If I had to say right now, I think Nelson would have the higher grade. That's partly because I weight athleticism so heavily for pass rushers, and I don't know that Chubb is an elite athlete. I'll try to post some breakdowns. They wind up being pretty time consuming. The hardest part for me is writing a brief analysis and coming up with a good comparison.
  6. I don't like this scenario because there are no guarantees in the draft. But even with a guarantee that Nelson would be Martin, I still need to know my grades on the rest of the prospects. Who's still on the board, and how do I view them? If I have a similar grade on Chubb, for instance, I'm going with Chubb. If my phone is ringing off the hook and I can add nice picks and stay in the top 6-8, I'm probably going to trade down, especially if I think whoever is calling me wants one of the QBs. There's recent chatter -- and it's lying season, so it might not matter -- that Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield might go top 5-ish. The third pick might be super hot. My first step is to evaluate everyone honestly. My last step, before I do anything with the pick, is to feel confident that I'm getting the most value out of the pick as I can. I don't think taking a guard is going to represent the best value, when all is said and done. So, short answer probably not. By the way, the last two guards to go top ten were Jonathan Cooper and Chance Warmack, two guys who were presumed to be 'can't miss' interior OL prospects, the next whoever. Cooper certainly hasn't performed to that level, and Warmack has been decent, but not worthy of the #10 pick that was used on him (Kyle Long went at #20, and he's been better). Lots of these 'can't miss' guys wind up missing. Scout honestly.
  7. RUMOR: Possible Important Luck Health Update....

    I'm dismissive of it because it's pretty much entirely unsubstantiated. I don't deny that Luck has had setbacks that have not been sufficiently explained, and I think we'll all continue to be skeptical until he takes the field -- maybe longer -- but I don't think we can go chasing around every rumor that hits the Internet. Especially those of the "I know a guy" variety.
  8. I don't think Nelson falls to the 20s. I figure he'll be top 10, period. And I continue to disagree with drafting a RB at #3. Sorry.

    If that's the counter, I can handle that.
  10. McDaniels Offense and FA's that could Follow

    There are some vertical concepts in there. I wonder why Brady was having more success early this year with the deep ball. He's fallen off in the last couple months, but he was one of the most efficient early this season, where he's been one of the worst in recent years. It might be as simple as having Cooks. I think TY will continue to be one of the best deep ball receivers in the league. If we get the efficiency part of the passing game going, the deep stuff will be even more dangerous. Heaven forbid we have a run game...
  11. McDaniels Offense and FA's that could Follow

    Yup. I think it's important to not just go throwing money around, but I think Norwell is a worthy investment that would help our offense stabilize in both phases. We have the ability to make the investment right now, and as always, the structure would have an out for the team after two years. The hope is that Norwell would be what we think he is, though. To that last point, he was really good this year, but he's been improving since his rookie season. He was highly recruited out of high school and was no slouch in college, but wasn't super talented, and went undrafted. Now he's worked himself into an All Pro. I don't see him as a contract year standout, he's a legit performer. I feel like he's the kind of guy that fits Ballard's parameters for a free agent acquisition.

    He might get more from someone else, and I'm fine with that.
