  1. Anyone know of a concise , organized website which shows free agent activity for all teams. It seems like we have been VERY active and it would be interesting to compare activity among teams so far.
  2. Boy, looking at some of those contracts, i'm glad we're not going that route. so much guaranteed, and cap hits... no wonder some teams can't get out of the hole. Its one thing to invest BIG on a guy you've developed, seen every day, your doctors and trainers see them regularly, you know how they are off the field, etc. you basically know all their strengths, weaknesses, demons, and skeletons. Much better odds of duccess. Grigson did alright in not handicapping the cap too. but look at what some tesms have invested for how long on basically question marks. .............. SNAKE EYES !
  3. This site has Mychal Rivera going to the Jags
  4. Thanks I guess i'll be giving up on my journalistic dreams. (as the forum breathes a cillective sigh of relief)
  5. I'm sooooo proud of myself! Talk about "activity". This has got to be the thread of the year. i'll have to call the NY Times or Washington Post to see if they are looking for a guy to write creative, popular, and insightful stories. much like this one obviously is.
  6. I cosidered considering that too. But after further consideration, i considered to not consider considering it in the first place.
  7. The story was for humor. tho i dont see odrick as tier 1, he would improve the team. (as long as no team picks up my nephew i guess.)
  8. Meh, Odrick couldnt stop my nephew (a TB SIZED FB) in high school. My nephrw had a big game the week before so Odrick's coach (at Lebanon HS in Pa) moved him to MLB for the game, presumably to stop my nephew. My nephew made him look like a fool and ran up 3 TDS that day in route to a big win. My nephew was so quick to the hole that LBs never had time to react. Odrick was so much bigger than EVERYONE else on the field. Looked like a college player playing against middle schoolers.
  9. I,ve got it. wear "cargo" football pants. heck, you can fit 3 or 4 beer cans in EACH of those pockets. that should at least move us into the top 15 i would think.
  10. Maybe they should wear looser fitting pants.
  11. Lydell mitchell, lenny moore, marshall, and edge (in no particular order) dickerson is a ram in my eyes
  12. There has been talk of luck not always going thru progressions. (I'm not starting a bash-luck topic) perhaps its because andrew is running for his life too. we all remember (well,some of us) how jeff george was affected by pressure. Dorsett was thought of as a deep threat because of his speed and theres no time for the pkay to develop maybe. But i see something in dorsett too.
  13. Ok, trade him to the saints to replace cooks. (i actually hope dorsett proves us wrong this year and goes off, if he sees any action, that is
  14. I bet NE would be all over that. they could make him a star i bet.
  15. Yes yes. Yes. you get it. some arent seeing the big picture. They've been complaining for years about no quality depth and now they are complaining when it happens. This team will improve much more by improving depth all-around than by signing a couple high-priced "big names" . The "big names" really should come from quality drafting and DEVELOPING. There is gonna be some hitting and gamesmanship at camp this year. i think the tone is being set. You will be judged by your play on the field, and management wants guys that can stay healthy. This influx of youth might even light a candle up some of these guys butts and perhaps it will translate into faster starts. Wouldnt THAT be nice? One can dream. Ps... is your first name Santa?
  16. I agree with all you are saying. it did cross my mind tho after the Allen trade. he could ball too. They both can, as long as they can stay on the field which i think was part of the original question. I personally think his frame could handle another 10lbs or so.
  17. With all those physical attributes you stated i would expect his production (other than redzone) to be higher, especially opposite TY. i see more there too but its time to play to those attributes. And hopefully missing 8 games is an anomaly. Perhaps the OC could help better utilizing his skills too. i dont think he's easily replaceable, especially the 7tds in 8 or 9 games. 33 receptions for 300 or so yards and being available for 8 games a year is.... which is what i thought the original post was getting at. I didnt take it as Moncrief hating. But, in some ways, his production/ injury status does resemble that of Allen. Another player with measureables that had injury/less than adequate (debateable) Yards (somewhat due to injury but does that matter?) with a really nice redzone production. Different situations, sure, but also surprisingly similar. much like you feel about moncrief, i felt about Allen. and as we've seen, ANYONE is replaceable, even the GOAT of Coltland.
  18. Thats NOT what she said!
  19. All this discussion about the new LBs and i forgot we brought him in. time will tell, but Ballard TOTALLY revamped and added ALOT of competition to probably our weakest position. He seems to be addressing the problem areas head-on. he's trying at NT, but is smart enuff not to overpay. Build thru the draft and fill in the gaps and add some depth thru free agency. Create competition at all positions. I REALLY am liking ballard so far. i really liked his "video message to colt fans". He said all the right things, checked all my boxes, and seemed so damn sincere and transparent at the same time: how refreshing. If he gets this draft right, its gonna be an exciting and interesting camp. cross your fingers.
  20. I've been wondering this as well. I like Moncrief. I see a guy who looks to have all the tools. When he was drafted, i watched his college highlights and got very excited about the possibilities opposite TY. I've seen him play well, then he kind of disappears. I expected more opposite of TY. I wonndered if him missing 8 games last year might affect his value in Balkards eyes. But then i also think: 7 tds in 8 games isnt too shabby by ANY receiver's standards. Is he mainly a redzone threat? He and Dorsett had 30 and 33 receptions last year. Moncrief had about 300 yards, the forums whipping boy had almost double that with the same amount of catches really. I thought moncrief would be a big play guy but he averaged about 10 yards per catch.i imagine some of that was the way he was utilized but still i'm a lil surprised. I think hes capable of more. Hopefully he'll play a full season and that will happen. I think i can live with 600 yards if he has 14 TDs.
  21. Pass on revis. He's a shell of what he used to be.
  22. Better check your stats again. Dorsett had twice the catches, almost twice the yards AND twice the TDs as swoope. Also, allen had almost same yardage and more TDs with only half the catches. so i cant agree with any of the above. The only thing Doyle has had over allen was on the injury front really. http://www.nfl.com/teams/statistics?team=IND
  23. And how muchbare they worth investing? If they were that "valuable", (ie production vs cost = value) then why are they still available? Im thinking they want more $ then they are worth. i agree we need "better" players, but at the he right cost. ballard is smart (imo) not gambling our future on a high priced (overpriced?) free agent. Be patient, their prices will com down. let the others overpay. But i agree it would be nice to add one of those guys, but only at the right price.
  24. Thats a stretch. He's shown some promise, but not any more than Dorsett whobseems to be the whipping boy around here. Swoope had 2 "big" plays that i remember that i think clouded overall average production. I think he needs a little more development before we can really rely on him as a true starter. Doyle and swoope will not adequately fill the needs of a #1 and #2 TE TEAM. And if doylecwere to go down, theres no way swoope could b relied on as a #1 imo. Ballard knows this and i agree with his efforts. The thing i like the most about Ballard is he seems to be setting up competition at all positions. Heck, he even seems to want competition at the backup QB spot, which we havent really seen around here for 20 years. I like where he is going, and it appears Ballards plan is to load up on D in the draft. I think we are really gonna like the depth of this team in a year or two, also something we havent been able to say in quite a long time.
  25. Like who specifically?
