    Let's talk 2019 offseason

    FWI I was listening to a local sports talk radio show discussing The Bills and who should they target in FA. Second player on his list was Glowinski of the Colts to help bolster the interior of their OL.

    Let's talk 2019 offseason

    I wonder if there will be a scenario where the Colts could trade up for Oliver. The guy I would love to trade up for would be Rashan Gary. I know he underperformed in college...but I don't care...from a skill set...he is the perfect fit for LDE in this defense. I also really like Ferrell and Josh Allen (who is like a stronger Leonard with pass rush moves). If the Colts had a playoff season and still got one of those four guys...wow.

    Actually I think a performance deficiency is more harsh than a talent deficiency. Performance means they didn't do their job well. talent means they lack the attributes he is looking for. To make it simple, if you want a guy with 4.5 speed but the current guy is a 4.7 speed guy, he may perform to the best of his abilities but doesn't have the skill or talent the position requires. My criticisms of you are derived from reading you posts, nothing more.
  5. Just read where DT Gerald McCoy of the Bucs could get released for cap reasons. They would save 13m. His production is still very good and he would be turning 31 next month. He's younger than Woods and Hunt.

    Agree 100%. I used to run a company before I retired and you cannot have discontent from one person as it spreads malcontent in the entire company fast. I will pass on the malcontents.

    Those pesky Patriots's are not going away easily!

    Not socialist or capitalist w.r.t the cap, socialist or capitalist w.r.t fandom from casual fans, that is what I meant. Most casual fans don't even care to watch the SB if it is the same old, same old Patriots in the SB. The non-football fans, they are just watching it for the commericals and party. It is more remarkable that they have done this in the salary cap era, no doubt about that.

    Seemed appropriate.

    I'd take Collins in this scheme, and he'd be a critical piece of a good dime package. I don't care if he has the com, either, just think it needs to be a guy who never needs to leave the field. (And I think Walker maybe got more reps than he should have, because he had the com. So let's fix that.) I'm working on my FA mock. Still don't have enough draft info to post, but I don't think I'll have Collins in my first version.

    Seems as though one can't come to this board anymore for real productive conversation without seeing DD arguing with the rest of the board. Soo negative. What a miserable life it must be.
  11. I'd like to see so many people bow out that it's guys like Brock Osweiller showing up. Funnier than the bad game.
  12. Agree to disagree....sorry but the "game" itself is a joke. I get what your saying about all the extras, thats cool, but come on...the game is worthless.

    Saw James Gang live in 1972. Nice reference, Gramz!

    Yeah...I assume it's pretty rare for a rookie to have the green dot on his helmet. I think Leonard could handle it after this season. But ideally, I would love to get Landon Collins in FA and give him the com. Like Leonard, he never leaves the field...and he was a captain for the NYG. Reports seem to indicate he has a decent chance of hitting FA. Colts don't really have a ton of ties to Collins...but he should become their top priority if the shoulder is healed and the NYG let him walk. He fits exactly what Ballard is talking about when it comes to outside FAs...young (just turned 25 a few days ago), great player, great character, natural leader, etc. If he wants to come here...Ballard has to be able to close the deal.

  17. I accidentally left out an article that would make that correct verbiage. Bottom line you made a deal about ponderous in the first place dude

    I agree with you. And this is why I love Colts (and Pacers). Of course everyone wants to win games. But ultimately, we--players, coaches, managers, and fans--are people. We are not football machines. A key difference between people and machines is that people have emotions and characters while machines are just designed for a single purpose. I am sure there is a way to build up a winning team purely based on talents and numbers. But that is not a team I want. I want a team of players with characters and hearts, not a machine running to produce wins.

    The other factor at LB is that Walker has the com, but he comes off the field at times. Leonard never comes off the field (only four games where he didn't play every snap, aside from the game he missed due to injury; and I bet those other missed snaps were due to injury), I think he'll have the com next season. I think that will free the coaches up to play more matchup defense, hopefully come up with a dime package that isn't a total liability against the run.

    In case you are being serious the Patriot success is the result of socialist principals which allow them due to superior coaching and administration to win year after year. The draft and the salary cap are socialistic. A Capitalist approach would be one in which the draft and the salary cap would be eliminated. In that scenario coaching and administration would take a back seat to Money "what can you give me" (i.e. nice weather). In that case teams in richer markets would more than likely control the talent and wins as we see in baseball. Just an FYI.
  22. I can see Noah Fant to the Patriots if Gronk retires???

    Yep. They hit on a potentially HOF talent at WILL...I don't think they should settle for a decent player like Walker at MIKE. Give Leonard a legit running partner and create one of the league's best duos. Obviously finding another LB as good as Leonard will prove difficult or costly...but I think they can find someone with a similar skill set, which would make the defense better and more versatile. Then teams can't key in on Leonard...and aren't able to run their passing offenses through the middle of the field. There is a reason the Colts allowed the most receptions and yards to TEs last season. Coverage in the short-intermediate area is a part of this defense that needs to improve. Don't get me wrong...Walker is definitely a solid player...a tenancious run defender who struggles in pass coverage at times. I think he would be a nice luxury to have starting at SAM (and as depth at MIKE). And it's not like SAM doesn't have a role. This teams plays matchups...and last season Adams had games where he got as many as 40% of the snaps. And with only a 5th rounder invested in Walker...it's not like they are wasting that draft pick.

    No doubt, it is unprecedented. The socialist inside people want a more even distribution of SBs but I guess if you are the fan of the team winning multiple SBs, the capitalist in you takes over, lol.

  27. With the cap money we have I just hope an impact player becomes available in free agency. It would be nice to get a position of need but those players very rarely hit the market. Ballard may have to find that diamond in the rough.
