Which FA corner should we target?

22 posts in this topic

I have heard many mixed opinions on who to go after and not to go after. What are your thoughts? Specifically, I wouldn't mind Brent Grimes or Cary Williams, but have heard both panned by others on this site. What do you think?

I like AC as a left tackle and would prefer a right tackle to be played at right tackle. If we move AC to right tackle I feel he might move on when his rookie contract is up for a LT spot, meaning we have to start again.

Elite linemen cost too much in my opinion I'd rather have Evan Mathis type linemen who are very good but don't demand the money, that way you have a chance of keeping the line together for a number of years and rarely lose your best lineman to free agency.

Something like Castonzo Slauson Shipley Vasquez Cherilus would be what I'd aim for.

That's where I tried to post, was the opening post changed? Confused by this thread.

I originally mixed up where I posted the threads so edited to ensure they were in the correct category. (I wanted to move the offensive line thread to the all about colts section). Sorry for the confusion.

I'm not harpy with Brent Grimes. We need a Big CB who Can cover man. DRC would be great, he played poorly as an Eagle playing zone, but he was great at Cardinals, who ran a 3-4 scheme and covered man. Cary Williams would also be ok, he knows Pagano's scheme and is 6'1.

I am a big fan of Williams. If he's healthy and opposite Davis I think we are stacked.

Nnamdi asomugha, his release looks inevitable with the eagles cap room, also he did great in a man scheme in oakland and he could help the younger DBs like butler or even williams. Vet minimum perhaps?

    • They just want to pass the hot potato to us so we go the playoffs and face New England instead since they got Foxboro'ed out this year already. Sigh.   Just kidding.   Honestly this is terrible news. Love watching this guy play but he has not looked "all there" this year so far either. I still won't count Houston out though since they still might play very hard this year and it could still be a strong divisional battle.   It's important that they let him fully heal though for his future too.     Some say he should not have played.......but star players play banged up a lot. I am sure Luck was out there banged up last year a few times early in the year too. I think Houston probably trusted the trainers/doctors and how JJ himself said he felt and he felt okay to go perhaps. Before the NE game, I heard Watt was increasing his activity levels anyway in practice. Stuff, happens.......   Sucks so many stars are already hurt this year, but hey the Vikings have made do without a few and sometimes others step up in place.
    • I just don't think Luck trusts all his WR's yet.  I said this a couple of weeks ago to my buddy that he is waiting for the WR to come out of his break before throwing, which takes longer and leads to more problems.  I think he has decent chemistry with T.Y. but it's nowhere near the level that Manning had with Harrison and Wayne yet.  Takes time to build.  I also think in some of the situations where Luck makes the "boneheaded INT" throw he is trying to anticipate the pattern and it goes awry, which leads him to want to wait for the WR to break going forward.  I think it just may take a LOT more practice time and some years with these guys to gain that trust to know when they will break so he can release it sooner and not have something bad happen.   This is year 5 for Luck and T.Y. but not for everyone else.
    • Lol.. He said "circus", but I can definitely see where you could hear the other thing. 
    • I think we could win 5 by the mid-break.  BUT until we do he aint right and he aint wrong.  Just unproven.  He's still a fargin icehole though.
    • Ill try to answer your questions the best I can based on what I see and my opinion. Keep in mind its in my opinion though so take it for what it is worth.   He trusts both his arm and his legs . It has nothing to do with his physical ability that he doesn't trust. Its all mental ability to have a clock in his head the second he hits his drop back spot 3-5-7 steps. I believe he should be able to scan through his first 2 reads in under 2.5 seconds. By the time you get to that 3rd read I think your pretty well going to be under pressure unless you have an elite O Line pass blocking wise or you have your QB out on the move   I think Chud can help him out more by giving him some throws that are easy for him to make early on the games. Particularly short throws to get him settled in. Sometimes guys are not getting separation though and I don't really think Lucks strength is to throw guys open right now much. I think he is still working on learning to throw guys open which really involves throwing the ball to an area and trusting the receiver will be there. Instead I think he waits for the receiver to run his route and if the receiver is not open at the break point then he hesitates instead of throwing it to an area and having the WR go get it.   Also from the looks of it he doesn't get hardly any plays called that allow for him to throw on the run. No QB Roll Outs really at all. He needs more help from Chud
