Poe signs

20 posts in this topic

That is so dumb. Why would he meet with the dolphins for 9 hours, the jags, the colts, and not sign for a longer contract or take more money. Bennie Logan got just as much money as he did. Chiefs let him go. Maybe something is wrong with his back... idk. At least this means we have more money to sign Zach Brown or  Kevin Minter, and a corner/safety.

Putting a thread titled "Poe Signs" in the Colt's Football section of the forum is a little misleading when he's signed with another team.

Yeah I got excited only to be let down. But it was a big "decision" so I get what he was doing. Just put it in the wrong section. Lol

Ballard loses another one.

 

I think if Ballard had wanted Poe we would have gotten him. There is some reason why Ballard didn't go hard after Poe.

I'm glad actually. I'm probably in the minority, but I think Poe is overrated. Ballard wasn't willing to overpay, and that's a good thing. He knows Poe much better than any of us do anyways. 

 

Use the money we didn't pay to sign Minter & Brown to ILB.

That would make too much sense.  Its better to just think Ballard is incompetant.

You are not alone...I felt he was risky due to his back and lack if production the past couple of years.

If we get Minter and Brown both at ILB I will be impressed. Replaced our WHOLE Linebacking core in one offseason. And could focus on the D-Line and secondary more in the draft after we draft a pass rusher.

Another possibility is that we offered a similar contract, but Poe figured if he was going to play on a 1 year contract and all teams were offering a similar amount, than he may as well go for a team where he has a chance for a ring during his "prove it year" and will consider what he wants longterm next off season.

We didnt lose him, if Ballard liked him that much he would be getting his jersey number today

    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
    •   Yes,   I noticed that too.      And no, he's not.     He even a dmitted as much in a recent interview.   Says he lost 15+ and has gained back 10-12.    Thinks he'll be good to go for the start of the season,   but there are so many questions left unanswered.....
