  1. So Ravens have a couple players test positive and the league is like alright let's postpone. Broncos have all their qbs ruled out for covid and the league is like well good luck with Freeman or the practice squad WR at QB. Doesn't make any sense to me.

  3. Not only this but moved Ravens game next week from Thursday to the following Monday, not even Sunday. Could be the difference in Jackson being able to play or not. Shady business if you ask me.

  4. Your Indianapolis Colts play the Tennessee Titans in an intra-division game that both teams want to win to remain atop the division. Although both teams have a 7-3 record, the Colts beat the Titans 34-17 on the road two weeks ago. Now, the Titans come to Indianapolis for revenge. They will play without wide receiver Adam Humphries, tight end MyCole Pruitt and cornerback Adoreé Jackson. Two of their offensive linemen, Ben Jones and Roger Saffold are questionable. The Colts will be without linebacker Bobby Okereke, DeForest Buckner and Denico Autry on defense and Ryan Kelly and Johnathan Taylor

  7. You may be right. But improved upon by free agency and not the draft likely means more money. In some cases much more money depending on the player. That formula of how much more money vs how much more performance is the math that makes or breaks many GM’s.

  8. Go thru your own list. A number of the players you list as “let walk” are already making at or near the minimum. Letting them walk makes little sense unless they get replaced by high level draft picks because they still have to be replaced. And the replacements will likely cost what these guys are currently making. You’re just swapping one inexpensive player for another. Decisions could get really REALLY complicated IF we decide to pay Leonard and Smith a year before we have to. And I think that’s highly likely. Their type of talent gets the VIP treatment when it comes to

  9. LOL. I don't think you understand. And I doubt Rivers takes a pay cut. Assume Rivers is resigned at this point, so subtract 25-28M leaving you 40ish... then you have to cover the below plus a lot of other depth areas. Sure you can assume 2-3 starters from the draft, but that only goes so far covering the below. DE - both starters are FAs, plus a key depth DE. This is the biggest hole to fill IMO. WR - I agree on cutting Hilton, but he'd leave a huge hole. We don't have another WR that is "proven", or has stayed healthy. Our leading WR (Pascal) is also a FA. So really our top 2

  11. Is it though? We have had 4m new cases in November alone. Covid is serious. It's actually nice that California is taking it seriously, as many people are not. NFL just wants it to appear as they have everything in place, in actuality they are jist like the NBA, chasing that $$. The way the NFL has pushed games to be played when there was clearly risk of infection spread, has been very disappointing, IMO. Case in point, Colts game tomorrow. Only positive I can see out of this is, maybe a game has to be cancell

  18. Not a huge fan of Jacoby's upside but he definitely will be on an NFL roster, hell he is better than 5 QB's starting this week(Lutton,Finley,RG 3, Fitzmagic and Flacco) and better than over 20 sitting #2....that being said he will obviously get paid a lot less and have to accept an Andy Dalton type deal....he is a game manager...always has been always will be...why he has lowest int % all time in NFL history yet wont go down field to save his life......

  20. I don't think Ballard is the best but he is in my top 5. KC and Pittsburgh have great GM's like you said, hard to argue any organization is ran better than those 2 at the moment. Other than those 2, Ballard is right there. I do like what Miami is doing as well, they have a very good coach.

  21. There is precedent for Rivers taking a pay cut. How many years did Tom Brady play at well below average money for an NFL quarterback? If not below average, then certainly below what an elite QB makes. Seems like there were many years. But it has to be finessed. We’d have to reassure PR that if he gives up a little for the good of the team, that we’re going to reinvest that money into quality players. We’ve got to be really close to the salary cap. A place we’ve never been under Ballard. We have to show that we’re pushing our chips in and going all in on a Super Bowl run.

  22. carryover is how much cap space a team has remaining from the prior season. Currently the Colts have close to $11m carrying over. Which is already figured into the $67m. If we would of released Brissett, we would be careying over closer to $24m giving us $80m to spend.

  23. the good news is 14 of the players can be signed for one or two million a year . its just gonna come down to cutting hilton then picking between autry and houston . also picking between rhodes and carrie . plus walker . if we lose walker hilton carrie and houston it would suck but at linebacker we have depth and the draft can get us a pass rusher corner and wr in the first three rounds but that is wish full thinking . without hitting on the draft the team next year is gonna be not as good unless young guys step up at those positions lost . if turray and ben take a step or patmon and

  24. Oh I got ya. Most don't get the #s. I'm trying not to get to deep lol, as I want to sit down and deep dive from a positional standpoint before forming hard opinions on specific guys. I also want to look forward to 2022 to understand the impacts of 2021 will have going forward. The draft this year is really interesting to me. I'm just not sure how we will attack it with all the moving parts right now. DE really scares me more than anything else. I really hope Turay comes on the remainder of the year. If he could become a 3 down guy, that would be huge.

  26. I like Carrie a lot. Rhodes wont b cheap. Something bout Stallworth intrigues me. I see potential. I think they will try and get Houston and Autry signed. Turay is coming off injury and cant stay healthy. I would keep Walker as he can play all linebacker positions. Sign Burton to a friendly contract. The rest are expendable

  27. Im just being realistic. By letting the guys walk and r the salary ranges. We are already capped out to $20m over the cap. I know a lot of these guys are major contributors but we are going to have to let some people go. Its not even that but if you notice my range like I said above to NCF. We are at $55m on low end and $80m+ of we signed everyone I listed. We are really closer to $60m after we pay our draft picks. So $60m for that list of guys. Paying Rivers $20-$25m takes up 33-40% of available cap space. Which I think we need to do, because

  28. its gonna all be on rivers to be honest . if rivers takes a pay cut we can sign all these guys and just let a couple go . do we want a solid QB and a worse team or a better team and a rookie QB ? that is for ballard to judge i dont know what eason looks like at practice

  30. Also a by-product of making a huge play in OT on a nationally televised game vs. an Aaron Rodgers led Packers team who had the best record in NFC coming into the game. Had he made the same play against a team like the Bengals which didn't have as many people watching, the hype on Blackmon may not have spread so far beyond the Colts fans who watch the Colts every week.

  31. Yup, I noticed the date on the article he linked. This is just another reason why I was concerned about JB's contract hit. The carry over saved could have meant keeping a key contributor.

  35. Hmmmm... Buckner signs and Grover has opportunity to play wirh a top 3 DT. He comes in at his best shape in his contract year. He is having his best year. I just think it was a rich contract. The Buckner factor and it being his contract year (comes in best shape) would have made me a little hesitant.

  36. Yeah i might have over blown that one lol. I guess I kind of get tired of the Nelson love. Sure, he is a great player. However, he is a guard and how much impact does he have on this teams performance compared to the money he is going to be asking for?

  37. Stewart is an interesting story here... Drafted at the bottom of the 4th round in Ballard's first draft for us, 2017, along with Mack and the giant OL from USC. But it's taken Stewart 4 years to show this much. There's no one in this thread who 6 months ago was predicting that Stewart was going to be rewarded with a deal for $10 Mill a year. No one. Now, he's played really well and he's getting paid. Great. I hope this is a lesson for those who love to proclaim that certain players from the 2018, 19 or even the 2020 draft aren't ever going to be go

  38. While I do think they'll pass more than last game, and while I do want Turay to have a good game, the biggest thing for our front 4 is stopping the run. Turay likely won't be in on most of those snaps. This sucks, but let's remember, it was Hines on the edge runs that got most of our yards. I'm more concerned with losing Kelly. Nah.

  40. Funny how the NFL won't reschedule our game. They've bent over backwards to help the Ravens and Titans, even though the Titans were caught violating protocols. But when it impacts (certain) other teams, the NFL reschedules.

  42. Yeah I do a lot of lists and haven't done a GM list for 2020 but he is in my top 5 without thinking so that in itself is very good. He is great with the cap and is nifty at signing free agents like the Houston signing for example. His drafting is solid for the most part. Like you said nobody is perfect, that is obviously impossible for anyone . Some people complain about JB making so much money but IMO I say who cares, after this year JB is off the books anyway. Having a great backup QB is just smart.

  43. Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is go
