You are just dying to get one big name signing so you can go off and say "I told you so".  So much so that you aren't thinking straight...  even for you

 

lmao .....Come on man. Revis and Flowers are not big name signings at this point in their careers. Hankins would just be a great signing, and would be our NT for the next 4 years.

What are you talking about man? Kendricks is a 3 down LB. Yes. Brown has that ability, but as good as he is, and can be he is a little inconsistent. I still want him though.

Nooo brah he's a liability in coverage. He can rush the passer pretty well but he's not someone you drop into a zone or man up on a TE or RB. Zach Brown needs motivation and a coach he respects and listens too and he really could be All Pro IMO. Not that Kendricks is Soo Moore bad in coverage just to be clear but he's a guy an offense will try to exploit.

Yeah.......if this Hankins guy can't catch 10 TD's a season then I don't want him.  He's worthless.:headspin:

He has all the potential to be a annual pro bowler. His ability to play the run as well as cover makes him a unique and complete LB. Combined that with the fact that he's a freak athlete and he's the ideal LB in today's NFL. Kendricks is nice but I wouldn't trade for him I'd try to pick him up when they cut him. Also a 2 down backer who would have to come off the field on passing downs.

 

I'm assuming you're talking about Zach Brown....

 

And if he was HALF the player you think he is,  wouldn't he already be signed by.......   someone?

 

When did he become a freak athlete?     Who is calling him that?

 

I'm keeping Kendricks out of this for now,  focusing solely on Brown.    I'm in favor of the Colts signing him,  but I don't know where you get the idea that he's is all that you think he is?      What is the proof of that?

 

Hasn't he basically had one very good season?     Or, am I misremembering....?

A 250 pound man running a 4.5 flat 40 is freaky IDC what you or anyone else is calling him but he's definitely not an average athlete. That's the lamest excuse ever man, "if he was any good wouldn't he be signed by now"? I'm sure you know its never that simple, obviously he's had talks with teams and he values himself more then they do. One year of production with flashes in Tennessee, had a good game against us a year or two back picked off Andrew. That's really your only argument, I've gone back and watched his tape and he literally does everything well. I'm not saying he does everything at a Luke Kuchley level, but I'm saying ever aspect of a ILB he checks the box. If you don't believe it hey, that's a you problem

OK....

 

I was unaware of his 4.5....   though I confess,  I'm skeptical....     no other measurements are  freakish...

 

As for his all-pro potential...     Tennessee had him,  and let him leave without much of a fuss....   Buffalo had him and doesn't seem to be in a hurry to bring him back....

 

And there doesn't seem to be a bug hurry for anyone else to sign him.     The fact that he's not signed now is NOT as lame as you think it is. 

 

I'm not saying he isn't a good player,  or that I don't want the Colts to sign him.   

 

But it's down to this.....    either he and his agent are asking for way, way too much,  or GM's and other evaluators don't see what you see.....        There just aren't many top un-signed free agents left out there....

I think he needs discipline and he needs to respect the coach he plays for. What he did for Rex last year before he was fired was at an elite level. Then he fell off after Ryan was canned, is Chuck the coach that's a good question but he seems to have good player relationships. Maybe he likes chopping wood

If they had any real interest, I'm sure they would..... they obviously aren't of the opinion he would be worth the investment for this team....

Yeah, still makes you wonder why they aren't high on him.... Not saying he is a world beater, but I would like to know what the Colts assessment is of him.

With players like Brown, the answers almost always come with the info about people that never gets discussed publicly.

Agreed. Though i do think they probably thought Sean Spence for 1 year and $3M is better than Brown for 2 years and $12M.

 

Since we did not get Minter and he went for 1 year and $4.5M, my guess would be that the Colts were looking all along for an ILB that would be willing to take a contract at the $3M a year range and Spence was the first to bite where Minter and Brown turned their nose up at that. Pure speculation, but connecting all the dots it does seem to make sense.

Hard to argue that the team didn't see Spence as a better VALUE than Brown, as of today anyway....seeing as they signed Spence, and have, as of yet, passed on Brown, no?

Makes sense, but brown is a much better talent then spence or minter so I don't see how the colts would believe they could get him offering him similar contracts to lower talent

If that happened, I'd do a backflip out of a plane taking off, onto a trampoline, and frontflip back into the plane as it's entering the sky! That's my no1 guy right there!

I'm starting to think that either they're not ok with the asking price or don't think a pro athlete that needs to be motivated to actually play well is a good locker room fit.

Yes! Maybe even throw in a twist for good measure.

    •   Yes.  You, sir/madam hit the nail square on the head.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Nas made one of the most positive rap songs I ever heard "I know I can"...  Andre 3000 is a positive force in this world, and makes great music, however you define it.   I hate twista, but that's just my personal opinion.  Everything else you said, I completely agree with.  KRS-1 is a founder.  Q-TIP is a founder.  Jurassic 5 builds on the foundation like few others.  I've never been a fan of the Beastie Boys, but I'm a biased individual.  Cube is THE foundation, along with the rest of the 90's concrete.   Ready to Die...  
    • Also Biggie... Can't think of a bad one he ever spit, although some of the songs had too much Puff Daddy for my taste... If Mace is on a track, I can't listen to it... Monotone, mumbly, awkwardly worded every time he raps.
    • Not sure they would be bigger then Dre he is a icon he even discovered Eminem. I haven't talked about him yet he is actually prolly my favorite modern rapper his flow is absolutely amazing 
    •     Can you imagine Biggie and Tupac enjoying the success of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop, and Chris Tucker?  They would be the same age as Dre and Snoop, and way more successful.  They could have been the most successful rappers to ever play the game, and retire as icons...   The music/movies that they could have collaborated on?  The coast-to-coast success they could have contributed to if they hadn't been gunned down?   I mean, they could have collaborated in music and movies if they had just buried the hatchet and squashed all that east/west bullcrap...    
    • I can't decide on this one.. For me, it's a toss up between Nas and Jay-Z... Both are absolute geniuses.   Kendrick Lamar will belong near the top of the list eventually.. He is amazing. Eminem has a legitimate claim to possibly having the smartest/most complex rhyme schemes and probably uses more literary convention with regard to poetical forms than all others. His rhymes on the 2nd Bad Meets Evil record (with Royce Da 5-9) should have been game-changers, but couldn't stop the mumble rap from taking over.   Twista might be the fastest, at least he's the fastest without having it overtake his flow. Bone Thugs have some incredibly quick verses.   I think Andre 3k should be included in the discussion. He has some borderline ridiculous verses, but many profound ones.    As far as old school guys, my personal preferences are KRS-1, Q-Tip, Jurrasic 5... Beasties have great jams , but not overly skilled lyricists...   Cube is the best battle rapper all time, imo, although Eminem and Common are both deadly as well   Edit: when I said "battle rapper" I should have said that he makes the best "dis tracks" battling is another scene... I think the consensus might be that Marshall Mathers is the best straight up battler

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
