  2. You want me to explain why comparing Peyton Manning and Chad Kelly is a terrible analogy??
  3. Today
  4. Didn't you just describe 70% of all Twitter users?
  5. I wonder which account is Kevin Bowen on here? He seems often to quote stuff I read here first. Anyone else notice that? I wouldn't be surprised if he's either lurking or he's one of the regulars here.
  6. Mayfield and Rogers equal? "You can't be serious!" -John McEnroe
  7. Yeah, if you ALSO take away his 3 best linemen you might approximate what Luck was dealing with his first 3 years. Then we'd see an apples to apples type comparison to Luck's early years and his. I think Mahomes deserves attention, but he had a stacked deck on Offense. He also has the best TE in the league. So arguably his top 3 weapons were in the top 5 in their positions, and Luck hasn't had any of that EVER, not even last year. Sure, Luck finally had a line, but TY is on nobodies Top 5 list outside of this message board, and Ebron isn't deserving of a Top 5 listing wiht a blip on his resume. Mack is a nice RB but far from Top 5 at this point. Even though Luck STILL won't have 3 Top 5's this year, I think the scales are a bit more balanced this time around so I look forward to seeing which one excels. If Mahomes puts up similar numbers without Hunt or Hill, (even though Kelce and their replacement back are still as good or better as our guys) then he'll unquestionably be the top QB in the league, in my view, over everyone on the list in pure talent/ability. Rogers may have BEEN the most talented ever, but he's had some terrible seasons of late. He'll be re-establishing his greatness as well and he has some new weapons this year to help him do that. Same with Brady. We'll also get a good look at Ben R. without Brown to see if he keeps up his performance. We're lucky that Luck will get to prove it against many of those rated higher than him. And likely, should we play well in the Playoffs, he'll have to prove it against Brady. I would love to see Luck win against Brady in their only playoff meeting likely remaining should it happen.
  8. Gonna be so hard for us to win one in their building with Kawhi not at 100%. Luckily Siakam finally looked like his attacking self in game 3. Hopefully he can find that again in game 5. Lowry needs to keep up his play as does Gasol. I don’t know what to expect from the bench but as long as they don’t get ripped to shreds, that’s all I ask. Oh and it would be very welcome if Danny Green could return from his vacation at brick island (although he’s been solid defensively I think)
  9. Reich wanted Funchess and got him. Reich wanted Chad because of Jim Kelly his friend and he got him.
  10. Kurt: Here’s my list. Producer: Thanks, Kurt. Uhh, take Luck off and put Ben. Then we’ll have David ask where is Luck on the list. Kurt: But that’s not being honest. Producer: ok. Here’s something honest. I’m replacing you with Pat Mcafee. Kurt: Big Ben it is.
  11. If it is TOP 5 based on last season then I am surprised why Luck is not there because he was better than at least Ben. Now if it is based last few season then not sure what is Mahomes doing in the list.
  12. the list is subjective, or is it?...you can't argue with rings and no-look passes at NFL level. PM beat Colts 31-13. with great coaching and ballard, Luck will be top 5 on KW's list soon enough, if it was meant to be.
  13. I don't think he is top 5 right now. Close. Top 8 for sure. IMO I think his arm and/or shoulder got tired towards the end of last year. He really started guiding the ball imo instead of throwing it with a free and loose motion. His wind up and arm delivery started getting shorter and his balls lacked crispness. He was guiding the ball. Not throwing it like a Rogers or any of the other top qbs. I really noticed it the last 3 games or so. Hopefully an off season of rest and a regular workout regiment solves that for this coming year.
  14. I understand that by first appearance, it seems..... odd. And my concern level is elivated that we haven't read news that Kelly has gone and completed rehab. I would've guessed that would be mandatory for Ballard. And maybe he has, but if so, you would think the team press release could say so, or the kid would do an interview and say so. It's important that that message would get out. It's an important step to take. But so far, nothing on that front. But, I'm a second chance guy, and I'm a Ballard/Reich guy, so I trust them. I think the investment is so small that I don't see much of a downside. Except the reaction if it doesn't work out. As Ballard said in a recent interview, the league is about the noise that surrounds the team. But our noise level is among the lowest in the league, so I figure we can afford a litle buzz if things don't work out. Because if they DO work out, then the noise will be positive. And that's always a good thing....
  15. I would love to get McCoy. I just think that our fans need to prepare as if it is not gonna happen. Not because we do not want him or he is not a fit or anything like that. Mainly because he is going to have a lot of suitors. At the end of the day, the Colts will have to win a bidding war for him if they want him. There will likely be even more. Typically we do not go that bidding war route. We will make an offer and if it's good enough and he takes it then cool. But my guess is he will shop offers around. He did not want to take a pay cut from his $13M figured before he got cut. So I feel like $10-$13M is probably the sweet spot. I'd offer it for one year, but someone might be willing to go multiple years or more for one year. So we have to hope that our offer is better than others or at least as good. We have the cap room to do it. Question is will we? I am happy w how we stand without him. I'd be even happier with him. I am just not confident that we get it done. I hope I am wrong.
  16. So far counting this season = last 5 seasons (2015-2019), the Cubs have won more games than all teams + won a WS in 2016 in that timeframe. I guess the haters can go suck . The goal now is to win another WS to prove we can do it twice. I am enjoying this season very much as the Cubs look really focused so far after starting 2-7. Long way to go but this is reminding of 2016 a bit.
  17. If total yards, QBR, and Passer Rater are the 3 biggest metrics for QB success, only Mahomes is top 5 in all three categories. Big Ben, Luck, and Brees made 2 out of three. Brady and Rodgers did not make top 5 in any of the three categories. Rodgers didn't even make top 10 in two categories. Not saying Brady isn't a great QB, but put Ben, Rodgers, Luck, Brees, Rivers, Mahomes, or Brees on the Pats with Belichick, and the Pats do just as good. Total Yards 1. Big Ben 2. Mahomes 3. Ryan 4. Goff 5. Luck 6. Rodgers 7. Brady 8. Rivers 9. Manning 10. Cousins (Brees 13th) QBR 1. Mahomes 2. Brees 3. Trubisky 4. Big Ben 5. Luck 6. Brady 7. Rivers 8. Winston 9. Ryan 10. Goff (Rodgers 16th) Passer Rating 1. Brees 2. Mahomes 3. Wilson 4. Ryan 5. Rivers 6. Watson 7. Wentz 8. Goff 9. Fitzpatrick 10. Cousins (Luck 11th, Brady 12th, Rodgers 13th, Big Ben 15th)
  18. How is Brady #1? He wasn’t even a top 10 qb last year.
  19. Understood. You asked a question & got an answer. While you are correct that it's all probably a complete non-issue, you should also at least be able to understand how some could view the signing as being somewhat off message...
  20. Belichick quit the Jets after one day to go to the Patrirots. Man, this autocorrect has a mind of its own.
  21. Okay, so thanks to all who responded, but what offset language is really at issue? Is it the same thing the Chargers DE held out for, or is it a variety of things? It seems like a high 1st rounder has power to hold out over "offset" language, but do these guys have any real power? If not, what is the deal? If they DO have power, would the Colts simply say no and the guy sits out over it? Does anyone actually KNOW the reason? When Bosa held out, they announced the details of why, has anyone heard any point of contention with either of these guys? Or is it just a "guess" that it is "offset language?"
  22. Cubs win 8-4, fly the flag Hozer. 29-18 on the season and still 2 games ahead over the 29-22 Brewers in the NL Central.
  23. I can't believe people are actually making a big deal out of this. Kelly is a camp body/lottery ticket that cost us almost nothing. If Ballard and Reich want to try to reclaim someone on the backend of the 90 man roster who cares. If he figures it out and manages to make the roster/PS we win. He steps slightly out of line or performs poorly he gets cut...and it cost us a bag of peanuts. How this signing somehow got related to Kap is even more mind blowing; those two players/situations are only comparable in the Twilight Zone.
  24. I think Ben was better up until last year and he has the better career with 2 SB wins no doubt but as of now I think Luck is better going into 2019. I do not see the Steelers making the playoffs again, if they do then credit to Ben.
  25. Oh I would take Luck over Ben any day. I still think as of now Ben is better but that could change as soon as this season.
