    Great article on hines and wilkins

    Sounds about right, unless someone surprises i guess.

    U think Wilkins would be safe on practice squad. If so, it might be a good move. We could carry an extra QB for a few weeks just in case, or a CB, OL, LB, etc.

    Thats what i think, but cuts are gonna be brutal. you think 5 receivers?

    Are we gonna carry 3 or 4 RBs on active roster? with depth needs everywhere, especially OL, CB, LB, etc, where do we risk depth? Maybe Hines can double as kick return. But does that then affect WR depth?

    #2 receiver

    I think its not so important to name a #2. We onow Hilton will get his reps. But beyond that, in Reichs offense, it seems we will be more situational (which i like) with our receivers. Im worried Rogers may get overlooked because of his size. Especially since we just drafted 2, either of which might not last on the practice squad. cuts are going to be interesting. With the new faces and uncertainty at OL, CB, LB, safety, Luck's "situation", TE..... heck, every position, it will be interesting and important who and how many are kept at each position. This may be the toughest cuts we've seen here for years. Where do we skimp, where do we add more depth? gonna be interesting.

    I have no clue what you are saying. Something about an over-run town? Were u drinking heavily tonight by chance?

    #2 receiver

    Pass. I al ays thought he was over-rated hype. With the wife/reality show thing, i get a little too much Hank Baskett deja vu.

    Eric Ebron

    They are Lions fans. its not like they know what quality football looks like. They are frustrated and bitter about everything. It might be related to all that lead in the water pipes up there in Detroit and Flint. It affects ones ability to reason. Its kinda like taking a Browns fan's opinion as fact. You just shouldnt do it.

    Which Player is on your OTA/Training Camp Radar?

    Not sure if spelling is the same, but is he related to "the rocket"?

    Colts OTA’s 5/23/18

    Now list OTs taken at Lael Collins draft spot. its not ALL about draft position when it comes to talent and potential. Many here have CLEARLY stated why he fell to the 6th. Brady may have something to say about it too. i'd recommend we all wait and see how it pans out.

    Stampede blue story on Ballard

    A story about the draft vs building from within. Check it out. It does. a VERY good job of giving the reasons Ballard may not have spent big in FA. a very well written story. Perhaps the best story i have seen in regard to Ballards overall plan and how FA and the draft fits in his vision. I think when Ballard gets this team built the way he wants (another year?), we'll see him target more "big names" to fill SPECIFIC needs....when we are ready to make a legitimate run. but ... read the story!

    CB Bashaud Breeland likely to sign with Colts

    That is funny. i like he he way you think. i entertain myself "analyzing" stuff like that too.

    Keeping Brissett at #2

    We're gonna have to disagree. I feel you either dont understand my point on the reason "backups" (which are usually the lower draft picks hence the corellation to reps, experience, success rates and longevity) dont become starters or you just wanna twist what my point is. no problem. Its very difficult to fully explain things sometimes here. Many times points are misunderstood: perhaps we agree more than it seems. i think this all started because we have different opinions of Brissetts potential or "worth." Time MAY tell. Btw, whats next years QB did aft class look like? Many of the current "backups" changed homes this year so the FA market could be scarce next offseason.

    CB Bashaud Breeland likely to sign with Colts

    This thread almost has the longevity of that Trent Richardson thread a couple years ago that wouldnt die.

    Keeping Brissett at #2

    You cant just cherry pick the stats you want. there is a VERY good reason back-ups "disappear", and that is the fact that there are only 32 starting spots. You could say the same of Kurt Warner if Green wouldn't have gotten hurt. We wouldnt know who Kurt Warner (the QB) is. it is my belief that there are numerous back-ups in the league that would be better than some current starters but because of lack of reps really puts them behind the curve. Would ee know who Brady is if Drew would not have gotten hurt? Dont be so sure! back-ups usually dont get that 2nd contract either. So if they do get picked up by another team, they not only dont have real experience, but they now have to learn a new offense, team, etc. the odds are really stacked against MOST back-ups in this league.' you cant just make a blanket statement... "they are back-ups for a reason". Its just not the case. and the success by round taken is not anything unique, ALL positions track like that by round. my point is, if teams didnt have 1/4 of their salaries tied up in their "starter", these back-ups would get more reps, more playing time, etc , which , in turn, would provide more quality QBs overall in the league. But the league doesnt work like that. QB is perhaps the ONE position that most teams dont provide as much depth as other positions. Its not because there are only 10 or 20 starter-caliber QBs in the league, its because thes backups arent getting developed properly (by most teams). And if you do develop a good backup, you will surely lose him in FA.,

    Ah...... no. of course you can twist anything anyone says as wrong, but, no. you missed the mark.

    Keeping Brissett at #2

    Brissett will be better than last year. Its surprising how everyone forgets he was running for his life every play. Even Andrew struggled with that pressure... all QBs do. Brissett will be much better with a year's experience under his belt and an OL that can protect him. other GMs know this and it WILL affect his value. The way teams spend on unproven QBs, i can see a team or two offering a 2nd or 3rd. Heck, the Jets gave up 3 to move up only 3 spots to land an unproven QB. And they really didnt even know WHICH unproven QB they would get. Some teams get desperate for a starting QB, as we have seen over and over. if we dont get the trade we want, use him until FA in 2 years. i think, under the circumstances (which were stacked against him), Brissett performed better than people give him credit for.

    Keeping Brissett at #2

    Like i said, he's a good, cheap option at backup who we onow well by now. Hasselbeck relied on his experience, but his skills were declining. and there is a very real possibility Brissett could start the s ason at QB. I'd raylther it be Brissett than some new guy.

    Keeping Brissett at #2

    I just nderstand what you are saying but he's arguably the best backup we've had in a while. With better protection up front and a year of experience, i expect Brissett to be much more productive.

    Same result. We would have released Dorsett.

    Biggest rookie defensive impact?

    Thats who i see when i watch him. he's got that Mathis lean and a similar "chop" at the ball. i thim Mathis can REALLY help this kid:.

    Keeping Brissett at #2

    We have him cheap for another couple years. Keep him and trade him near the end of his rookie contract like NE does. Arguably, his value may be highest just before his free agency. I could see us getting a 3rd, maybe even a 2nd if he continues to develop. i'd love to see him stay as our backup, but i think we will be out-bid in FA. we got him for nothing as Allen would have been released anyway. keep him for insurance until another backup can be groomed. i doubt we re-sign him as he'll be getting some attention from teams which will boost his price beyond his value to us.
