Ok so we did have interest it just wasn't mainstream until now. It would be better if we could get him at a discounted deal. I'm a little worried about the little interest he has received but he's better than all other options and we need a veteran.

Good. Between him and Minter, I'd rather have him. Although I wouldn't mind Kevin. So long as the Colts get at least one, I'd be ecstatic. I like Jackson and Morrison, but I wouldn't trust either of em starting together or with a rookie.

Nice to see we talked to him but we've been linked to a lot of guys. I'm not getting excited until I see him sign on the bottom line. I liked what CB did at OLB and getting Turbin and Doyle re-signed but he hasn't really landed any of these top tier guys.

Its so funny because, if you didnt have espn back in the day, you had to wait for the local radio or even 5pm news.  Failing that, you had to wait for the morning paper. My dad was a newspaper guy.  But anyone in their early 20s wont ever understand having to wait for an announcement. Thats both awesome and kinda sad that technologically, we get the news up to date literally by the minute, but it also means the truth of the news is all that much harder to sort out.

Used to sit on the front porch at home, waiting for the paper (which came in the afternoon) to find out who won the Braves game the night before.  :^)

I used to always check the newspaper at school to see if the Braves won or not. First thing I did each morning in class. :) Would look at the stats and keep a copy all day for class lol.

This sounds like we talked to him and he didn't sign. More like bad news than good news. I guess he hasn't signed with Oakland either yet though.

My dad and i always waited for draft news in the paper until the year Marshall Faulk was drafted. That was the first year we had cable. Been an a close follower ever since. I also had to wait for Cubs news, but im not the same fan as I am the Colts.

I remember reading back in 2001 when the SB was about to happen between the Pats and the Rams, there were tons of articles in the papers discussing their strengths and weaknesses, 5 reasons why both teams could win the SB. A complete breakdown of each team's units. None of this terrible media drivel that they had back then, just honest opinions and info hyping up the SB and trying to tell people real information on how it could be a great game. Miss those days when there was no twitter, facebook, or youtube, and everything was real and legit.

My thoughts exactly. Poe came for a visit and we were linked to Jeffrey, Bennett, Minter,etc..None of the guys who actusigned were guys we were linked too.

Yeah, and that was around the year the NFL had a small surge in viewership before it really exploded in the mid-2000s. The internet was relied upon, but it was still being felt out. No facebook or youtube yet, you're right. 

 

That said, it wasnt all good commentary. The world still had their shock jocks (Howard Stern comes to mind). But it seems the prevalent philosophy today, unlike back then,is to say outrageous stuff till your name is heard enough times then cash in and get more serious (also like Stern). It was more reliable back then, tjough not perfect. But today shock jock is the norm and todays news is the result.  If anyone wants to know why i hate themedia the way I do, its because anytime I read an article, i have to fact check practically every letter in a story.

True dat. If I need to reach my wife but can't reach my wife via text or phone for about 1 to 2 hours after my first attempt while she is out shopping with our only daughter, I start letting my imagination go wild at times because it is not like her to not be around the phone. :)

 

Imagine when you had no cell phones, you just had to trust (in whatever you believe in) that your wife and kid would make it back home safe. Staying connected has its pros and cons, I tell ya.

We talked to him and he's visiting Oakland.  This does not sound too promising.  On the other hand, if he leaves Oakland and comes to Indy I think Chris will sign him!

It is called The Village. An interesting take, nevertheless portrayed in the movie. It will at least be somewhat entertaining for you.

Sounds like this is just the first stop for him.

At this stage of free agency, in all likelihood he will not immediately sign with Oakland. He is gonna take his time and shop around, hopefully CB offers something he likes and we can get something done! If we sign him or Minter, it really helps us out come draft time!

Philadelphia 76ers used to have a player nicknamed The Boston Strangler cause he had his very best games against Larry Birds Celtics.  I wish Ballards nickname was that.

I like Jackson in DQ Jacksons role but not in coverage same could be said for Morrison.

Well, at least there's interest.  I think a LOT of things sort of stall because every team has a hierarchy of players they want to sign, and they're waiting on player A to see what he does before they make a serious run at player B, etc.  So it all kind of gets jumbled a bit until the dominos start to fall.  This all takes time of course, which is something we fans don't appreciate too much.  I think whatever happens with Poe is what will speed up the rest of the process with other players.  Just IMHO.

Yes, he's got the range and the ability to move in space, and he's good sized. He hasn't been a consistent player at all, but he has some good stuff on the books. I'd much rather have him than Minter, for instance. But if Minter wants $4m and Brown wants $10m (just for instance), I'd probably go with Minter and wait to get my guy in the draft at some point.

That and players B and beyond wait for player A's contract to set the value at their position.

    • No true edge rusher. We need one.
    • That's like DEEP black.......if Ballard isn't blowing smoke about what he looks for in DB's.
    •   This is not a prediction of who will be taken in the first round.     If I was predicting,  I'd have Mahomes on my list.    I think he'll be taken in the first.    But he's not a 1st round talent for me.     Conley was on my list right up until about noon today.   These are my top-32 players,  for what little it's worth.     1.   Myles Garrett         DE        Texas A&M   Note:    Easiest pick of the list!   2.   Jamaal Adams       SS        LSU   Note:         Top-5 tape,  but not top-5 athlete   3.   Solomon Thomas     DE      Stanford   Note:       Football infant, just starting to play the game.    High ceiling   4.    Jonathan Allen          DT       Alabama   Note:    See Jamaal Adams;    Great tape,  but did not test like a premium athlete   5.    Leonard Fournette       RB       LSU   Note:     Runaway freight train.    Main worry is health;  often gets nicked up.   6.    Marshawn Lattimore      CB       Ohio State   Note:     Raw,  still learning.   Great physical tools and skills at a premium position.   High ceiling   7.    Ruben Foster                 ILB        Alabama   Note:      Character red flags galore,  but he's all over the field impacting every game   8.    Malik Hooker                  FS         Ohio St.   Note:   Another one-year wonder;  but plays center field and finds the football like Ed Reed   9.   Corey Davis                    WR       West Michigan    Note:  High ankle sprain has sidelined Davis during scouting season.   But those that I read/hear prefer Davis to Williams   10.    OJ Howard               TE          Alabama   Note:    Under-utilized in college,  but great physical tools   11.   Derek Barnett             DE/OLB      Tennessee   Note:     Three years of high level play in the SEC speaks for itself   12.     Christian McCaffrey        RB        Stanford   Note:    If used properly,  then he's a match-up nightmare.    If not,  could be disappointment.   Top flight WR skills plus return skills complete the package   13.     DeSean Watson             QB        Clemson   Note:   Winner.    Leader.     Competitor.     Needs a year (or more) of NFL polishing, but so do all QB's in this class.   14.    Haason Reddick              LB         Temple   Note:    Has anyone come farther, faster?     Can play outside or inside?    What do want/need?   15.     Forrest Lamp                    G          Western Kentucky   Note:   4-year starter, mostly at LT with short arms.     Will kick inside much like ND's Zack Martin.     Not often a guard is top OL in a class.   16.     Charles Harris                  OLB/DE        Missouri   Note:  Said to be a top-20 player on a number of boards including Chris Ballard.   17.     Mike Williams                      WR            Clemson   Note:   Not a good rout runner,  but great when the ball is in the air.    Great size.   18.    David Njoku                          TE             Miami   Note:    A late bloomer with surprising NFL skill set.   More split TE than in-line blocker   19.     Takk McKinley                      OLB           UCLA   Note:    Raw, but great attitude and tools.    Often compared to someone named......   Mathis   20.    Ryan Ramczyk                        OT          Wisconson   Note:    One year at Wisconsin playing at lower division school.   But did well for Wisconsin who know how to turn out OL's   21.     TreDavius White                   CB           LSU   Note:    Another multi-year starter from LSU     Highly competitive press corner   22.       Jarrod Davis                      ILB/OLB       Florida   Note:    Can play inside and out,  though most seem to see a man in the middle   23.     Mitch Trubisky                         QB           N. Carolina   Note:     Might be the best QB out of this class,  but I just can't get past only 13 starts when NFL teams really want twice that   24.      Dalvin Cook                             RB         Florida St.   Note:    Character red flags off the field,  fumbling and injuries on the field are keeping a once-top-10 talent much lower   25.     Cam Robinson                         OT           Alabama   Note:   Likely no more than average Left Tackle,  but might be a very good Right Tackle   26.     Marlon Humphreys                  CB           Alabama   Note:   The latest corner out of the Tide factory.    Great physical skills,  but very poor skills when the ball is in the air.   27.     Taco Charlton                          DE/OLB/DT       Michigan   Note:    One year of good production and did not test as well as expected gives some concern   28.    John Ross                                  WR                  Washington   Note:   4.22 is his calling card.     But two surgeries and a small frame worry scouts   29.    Kevin King                                  CB              Washington   Note:   6'3" frame and 32" arms and tested much better than expected.   Has forced scouts to reconsider what King can be   30.    Garrett Bolles                             OT                Utah   Note:   Smallish Zone Left Tackle with good feet,  but he's also 25 as a rookie.   31.      Quincy Wilson                         CB                  Florida   Note:   Zone or off-ball corner with great size   32.      Julius Peppers                          SS                Michigan   Note:   His diluted test not with standing,  he's great great talent and is considered a leader on the field.    With NFL coaching should settle into Safety plus returns skills.
