  1. I'm going to focus inside the hashes, improve the inside pass rush and coverage underneath. Grady Jarret - my number one want. I like the young talent that's im the edges and want to see how they develop. Autry and Jarret could get after it inside. Kwon Alexander - still extremely young but experienced. Great speed. would be a huge improvement in coverage. Landon Collins - playmaker that helps underneath and I think fits the scheme. Could play dime LB. Better than Geathers and stays healthier.

  2. Did some research on the defensive rules and Illegal Formation penalties and found this on the AAF website: On defense, no more than five players may rush on passing plays. Players that line up on the line of scrimmage are designated as one of the five players eligible to rush, regardless of whether they rush or not. No defensive player may rush from a position of more than two yards outside the widest offensive lineman and more than five yards from the line of scrimmage (defensive pressure box). The exceptions would be play-action or run-pass option plays a

  3. I take it that this won't only be a possible NFL feeder league, but may also be a testing ground for future NFL rules(?). Some of the ideas sound pretty good, and if the AAF gains popularity, it's not only a way to test the rules, but acclimate the fan base to the rules before adopting them.

  4. That's a very good line up, but not good enough to Philly and Boston, IMO.

  5. I watched the SD @ San Antonio. I was pleasantly surprised by the discipline play of the defense. Overall it was some pretty good football but they will need to get better QB play if the league is going to last. Some interesting things. As @ReMeDy pointed out, listening to the conversation with the ref during a replay is a very good idea. All players are paid exactly the same. They (AAF) wants to be a minor league system for the NFL. On "big" plays, the entire team receives a bonus. So there were 3 or 4 INTs in the game I watch

  6. Using Fanspeak, of course, difficult setting...feel like I addressed the team's only need (according to the board). Here's how it played out: Rd1 P26) DK Metcalf WR Ole Miss Rd2 P2) Marquise Brown WR Okla Rd2 P26) Riley Ridley WR Georgia Rd3 P25) Damarkus Lodge WR Ole Miss Rd4 P26) Andy Isabella WR UMass Rd4 P33) Hunter Renfrow WR Clemson Rd5 P26) Anthony Johnson WR Buffalo Feel like it's good in terms of hitting the teams only need area, because at all of our picks the only real value we're gonna b

  13. One guy I would like to see with his hand in the dirt at the combine is Oshane Ximines of Old Dominion. If he does well, he is definitely on my radar for Round 2. We also have to understand that picking at the end of round 1 is as good as a 2nd rounder. So, the first rounder tag is used loosely at that point. Marlin Jackson was a 2nd round projection and we got him at the end of round 1, in the late 20s, I think, if I am not mistaken. I am sure we can recall countless examples with other teams too like the Cowboys getting center Travis Frederick at the end of round 1 when he was ra

  15. This, everything in here. Alexander does play MLB (Lavonte David plays WLB for the Bucs) but he lacks size which hurts him in the run game and he misses a lot of tackles. He's also played the full 16 games just once in his career so far. Hicks has better size, is better against the run and IMO in coverage too. He does have injury concerns too, though. Collins didn't want to be drafted by the Panthers in 2015 bc they'd have used him as a linebacker. So they drafted Shaq Thompson instead. Then he had a bad rookie year with the Giants at S and Spags considered

  18. Look, it’s simple. Brady is the tortoise and other more talented QBs are the hare. He keeps it simple and is unathletic, slow and steady. Same system, coach and OC for his entire career basically. Don’t make silly mistakes. The system has his receivers open so he can get rid of the ball quick which keeps him from be8ng sacked which keeps him from being injured, etc....his defense ALWAYS helps him. His coach ALWAYS helps him. He never is a playmaker, never has to. Never gets out of the pocket, never has to. Belichick is the GOAT. It is obvious. If you want to crown Brady now, then cr

  23. What happens if we go on the spending spree you're eluding to, and then in 2020 and beyond all of our cap $ is tied into 5-6 bigger names, and we can't resign all of the draft selections Ballard nailed? I'll tell you what happens...we're good for a few seasons, then back in the proverbial sh*tter.

  24. Definitely entertaining and promising. I'm seeing a lot of positive talk about it on social media as well. If you accept it for what it is, you're going to enjoy watching this league. My main concerns going in were shaky OL play, and not enough good QB's. So far, those look to be true, but what do you expect? Living in the Tampa area, I suppose i'll be rooting for Orlando. I also love Spurrier from his Gator days I'm just glad to have 10ish weeks of football to watch.

  25. I agree 100%. Our playoff losses weren't High scoring shootouts. Our O was disappointing in most of our playoff losses. Infact, during our SupetBowl run 2006 our offense didn't play great vs Chiefs and Ravens but we won anyway.

  33. You are the FA MAN. Improve the D on all 3 levels. And it would really set up our draft. Figuring Jarrett is about Zero % getting away from Atlanta, let's hope a DE that Ballard wants comes available.

  34. I really enjoyed what I saw in the two games I was able to watch portions of. The offenses will catch up with more practice time and reps, too. Does anyone know the details on the Illegal Formations the defenses were getting flagged for? None of the announcers explained the calls, but I guess they didn't know, so they didn't try to explain. I really believe this is a legitimate league...not the quirky stuff like other leagues in the past tried. This league is obviously NOT competing with the NFL and seems to be trying to work with the NFL to make this a developmental

  36. Watched three of the four games. I really like their rule differences to the NFL. *No kickoffs .........starting on the 25 *No extra points (must go for 2) *There are no television timeouts during games and an ongoing effort to have fewer commercials to reduce overall game time to roughly 150 minutes instead of 180 minutes in the NFL. *Onside kicks have been replaced by an onside conversion. If a team is trailing by 17 points, or there is five minutes or less left in the fourth quarter, they can opt to get the ball on their own 28-yard line and try to convert

  40. Everyone seems to forget that manning and the offense consistently failed to play well for the most part in the playoffs. I agree I think it was the offense more then the defense in the playoffs with manning. He always had to dig himself out of a hole. Then everyone would say oh look mannng brought them back. Don’t get me wrong manning is as good as everyone says but our offense failed many times in the playoffs.

  41. Polian drafted better on offense than defense IMO his offenses were great with 18 but the defense sucked & the leagues worst regular season defense won a Lombardi that won't happen twice . Our offense needs a new 88 to put out there with T.Y but our Defense also needs a stud pass rusher if its a BPA pick one . The Peyton Manning era is littered with awesome seasons offensively but defensively NO . Our defense has always been the problem going back 2 decades been a fan from day one I just want to see a defense that can consistently pressure & dominate a team .

  42. Not joking at all. More talent in a guy who needs to learn the system is far superior to a guy with minimal talent but knows the system. WR is not a substitute for a NASA engineer. The system can be learned.

  43. No doubt I’m considering Butler over Whiteside if Butler is there. I just think Butler will test better than Whiteside, which is my gut feeling due to which Whiteside might be available and not Butler. Should have explained it more. You probably know I’m a big fan of Hakeem too. Anquan Boldin ran a 4.7??? for his 40 but no one could get the ball out of his hands, he was a big part of Flacco winning his SB with key catches vs Patriots too, we need one of those contested catch guys with high catch rate. Yes, having drafted Turay and Lewis, adding an edge rusher in FA wou

  44. We have some young athletes who could do some things at WR. Johnson is not just the most experienced but also the fastest in that group. I think he has a great shot at the 53 man. He will get a full camp this year. Fountain is a kid who still intrigues me. He didn't get a combine invite but his pro day 42.5 vertical and 11'2" broad jump would have been tops in the WR group. I'm not discouraged at all by his rookie year. We knew he needed time. His physical tools are rare. Cain is on track to be ready this summer as well. It should be an exciting camp from a position

  45. Could Glowinski have tested the FA market and come away with a fatter contract? Probably. But I think he took what he (and his agent) felt was a fair offer rather than going off to a new situation where there are a lot more unknowns. After dropping down the depth chart and eventually being waived by Seattle, his early career was a pretty bumpy ride. The starting RG roster spot in Indy must look pretty good to him right now, and we're certainly glad to have him.

  46. I'm a Stanford fan for nearly 50 years. And I love JJAW. And I'd love for the Colts to draft him. But NOT at pick 34. I don't think he's worth it. I'm hopeful at pick 58 or maybe even 89. It all depends on how he tests at the Combine. I fear he won't test all that well. And that will soften his ranking. But he's a very good receiver with outstanding hands. He's one of the best Red Zone threats I've ever seen. He can high-point a throw like few others. And his work with his body, his ability to screen out defensive backs so only he can make a play on t

  49. That was my number for 15 years growing up when I played rugby. It's also the number of times my father went to the Indy 500 and he would bring me back a boatload of colts merchandise when I was a young fella. He passed away after his 3rd trip so that's one of the main reasons the Colts are a large part of my life.
