  1. And I feel like I should be paid more. Wish in one hand . . .
  2. I agree with this. Thus far, the TE position has been patchwork. If there was a list of the top 5 hardest positions to transition ot the NFL, it'd include QB, DT, Edge, and TE in most every list. I think Ballard agrees or thinks the same and drafts accordingly.
  3. That was good fun to watch. Thanks for sharing!
  4. And what's great about Ballard and Reich is, for us fans, they are pretty transparent. More so than other coaches/GMs that I can personally remember. Maybe I'm just looking back at past Colts combos since we knew them better than most other GM/coach combos for other teams. But when they say they want to do something, they do that thing. It's the same with player deveopment. Really liked what Ballard and Reich both had to say about the 10 or so questions on Eason - look, he's a 4th rounder and needs to get better as a field general . . . we'll talk about him as a starter when he starts imp
  5. Oh I'm not either. They get there somehow. I just don't think I agree with it wholesale. CBs are important and they are up there in terms of positional value. I just don't think you get there by analytics alone.
  6. Re the "4 times the value Kinlaw would" - that is nonsense in IMO. Weird that they'd say that, even if exaggerated. I think it diminishes the value of a strong DT. You think most teams would choose [name your favorite CB in the league] over Aaron Donald? I'd be curious to see league wide vote on that from 32 GMs. But on the positional value question is so scheme dependent. But I've seen things like multipliers on player grades(i.e. 1.12 x [Player Grade]) . But that requires you to have a uniform scouting grade - that can spit out a grade based on your evaluation and that num
  7. Cutting out the rest for space, but I read it all and appreciate every word. I don't even really disagree with anything you said. But I think the bottom line is, there's a time and/or place for these evaluations. I think that probably teams engage in some sort of similar, more official sort of analysis when evaluating in house, at least from the GM down. I know that is outside the scope of what we are discussing, but still, I don't think it's wholly irrelevant. The analysis probably takes into account what individual scouts saw, projected, and what else have you, and how the
  8. I'm not a huge fan of this approach for a few reasons - reasons that probablly don't matter to you, but I'm not attempting to change your mind how you choose to grade. Just shed some light on why grades never matter without context. First, we're given a set of picks, for every draft, provided we do'nt forfeit them for malpractice. How we use those picks, now or in the future, it's still using part of the draft "allowance" or draft capital. So to me, using a pick in this years draft to acquire a player is part of the draft grade because we used part of the draft capital.
  9. Us picking a RB was about the only thing I predicted right. Never thought it would be a trade up in the 2nd, though. But Itheorized Ballard doesnt strike me as the type to overpay a RB the money it would likely cost to resign Mack. That was the logic anyway. Certainly didn't think itd be a top 2 RB though...
  10. I picked Glasgow as the biggest head scratcher only because I didn't feel that way about any of our picks. My knee jerk was about Blackmon like everyone else, but the more I looked into it, the more I liked it. Thought Ballard moved up and down the draft reasonably so I never really got the impression we were drafting guys we had no business taking.
  11. Well, we get to pontificate next offseason. A lot of you seem happy with that. Good for you getting your way...
  12. Yeah, but Chris is a win now guy. Who knows what that kind of guy will do?!
  13. lol he got clowned on so hard around here. Almost forgot abotu him.
  14. I think it would be a travesty if we took Jurts or Eason. You can't coach accuracy on the former. And in the latter, I don't like it when I hear questionable work ethic on top of seeing ghosts while under pressure. I'm coming around on Fromm, but he's still not really a guy I want to bet my career on. I could be wrong, some of you have made some good points. But still . . . I don't think anyone really thinks of a franchise QB and imagines Fromm.
  15. I would instantly begin to question whether Ballard had a gun pointed at his head, forced to decide between drafting Jalen Hurts at #34 or getting shot in the head.
  16. Some dogs have bigger mouths than other dogs . . . is that what we're doin here? I don't really know what I'm saying.
  17. lol I asked that jokingly. But then I started to think it out, and I couldn't honestly think of anything. Maybe his college transcript or what he had for breakfast?
  18. Very average athlete + very average production = very average pro. This guy is pretty much limited to up the seams out-muscle at the catch point. His athleticism isn't going to wow anyone, especially his lateral agility. He's capable of catching the ball with an extended radius, but he body catches more often than not. I think he'll be blanketed at the next level. He's definitely not a first round guy.
  19. Lots of draft day drops...thats your realistic prediction? No hate. But we're a tough crowd. We know everything. Just ask!
  20. All it takes is to agree with some pundit. You dont even have to have your own opinion!
  21. I mean, I'm not trying to convince you. We're adults with out own opinions. But the failure to see the similarities in the media opinion AND scouting profile when it comes to Love and Mahomes is a failure to do your due diligence. Really, it is...
