  1. I love Doyle but if Hentges is a better version. I'm going to get shot for saying this. Should we try to shop Doyle? If we can get enough for him. Honestly we missed Doyle after he went down for the first couple games but we figured it out shortly after. We did not perform poorly without Doyle. There may be some value there and we could save a roster spot this way. 

  2. I would trade him only if...


    1) Luck is a full go week one no pain anywhere.

    2) If Kelly continues to play well. 

    3) After week 4.

    4) we get a good enough offer for him or maybe package him with one of our seconds next year for a STUD D-lineman. 

  3. I know it's way to early, but I enjoy free agent predictions, re-signings, and mock draft almost as much as football season. 


    Who does everyone think were going to resign for the 2020 season. For how much total and how many years. Would love to see everyone TOO early predictions!!! Hopefully get a general consensus what are team will look like for the next few years.


    Players set to be free agents for the 2020 Season:


    Jacoby Brissett 

    Devin Funchess 3years/39M (I think he is going to ball out this season)

    Chester Rogers 

    Anthony Costanzo - 2years/27M 

    Zach Pascal

    Eric Ebron - 3years/22.5M (He will regress(I hope I'm wrong))

    Jack Doyle 

    Mo Ali-Cox - 2year/2M

    Ross Travis

    Joe Haeg - 4years/14M

    LeRaven Clark 

    Evan Boehm 

    Jabaal Sheard

    Luke Rhodes

    Kenny Moore - 5 years/42.5M (I think he will improve again and everything I read about him is positive (everyone loves him))

    Clayton Geathers 

    Matthias Farley

    Chris Milton

    Grandpa Vinny 1year/3M (If he doesn't retire)

    Rigoberto Sanchez 4years/8M


  4. I think he will resign some of our players but as of now with no one being resigned. This is how I have the position rankings. When they resign Ebron, Costanzo, Ali-Cox, Haeg, and Clark then the positions will change. As of now with no one being resigned TE is a clear cut number one unless everyone is happy with Billy Brown and Hale Hentges.


    I have NT/DT in tier 2 and have it labeled we need a solid started. We will have Autry, Lewis, and Hunt all under contract. I dont think those positions need to be in Tier 1 which is labeled we need to rebuild the position, but an upgrade for those positions would be great.


    Honestly, the more I keep looking at NT the less value for that position I see. If you look at our D-line right now. We have one true NT Stewart (330 lbs) After that we have five line man 260-290 lbs (Autry, Lewis, Ward,  Hunt, and Lewis). Then we have Turay (220). Then from 250-260 (sheard, Houston, Green.)


    For the edge, I think we need to start looking to find two building blocks; possibly rebuild the position. Back up the brinks truck for a young stud Edge player. Sheard will be a FA. Houston is getting up there in age. That leaves Turay a second round second year player who had four sacks and fifteen total tackles last year one. It also leaves Green a fourth round rookie. Lewis is more of a DT to me they may transition him outside more if injuries occur, but I think they are looking to replace Autry with him. 

  5. I know it's really early but, if anyone wants to get a head start on looking at next years draft prospects or free agents. This is my positional needs ranking from most needed to least needed at this time. Tier 1 we need to rebuild the position. Tier 2 we need solid starters. Tier 3 Depth. Tier 4 not needed at all. 


    Tier 1:

    TE - Everyone is a free agent.  

    LT - Castonzo, Clark, and Haeg are all free agents. Hopefully at least resign Castonzo and Haeg will be resigned if not all three. 

    DE - Sheard is a FA. We will have Houston, Turay, Green, and a couple roster bubble guys. We will need two solid young starters.

    K - Vinny is getting old he may have another who knows 

    P - Rigo is RFA probably will be resigned


    Tier 2:

    CB - Moore will be a FA. We still have RYS, Desir, and Wilson but retaining Moore is a must in my opinion. 

    SS - Willis isn't proven yet and Geathers is a FA.

    WR - We will need a taller wide receiver still in my opinion(maybe not). Funchess will be a FA. We still have Hilton 5'9", Campbell 6' , and Cain 6'2" 

    NT - An upgrade here would be awesome


    Tier 3:

    DT - depth/upgrade

    QB - Need a backup or to retain Brissett

    C - Depth

    RT - Depth

    G - Depth


    Tier 4:

    RB - 4th string






  6. I think Sweat would have been a no brainier if he didn't have health concerns or character issues, but he did. I think Banogu will fits our scheme better. We also don't have their 2020 second round pick. The 2020 pick could end up being a better edge defender than both of them, or maybe even the next Dallas Clark, Dwight Freeney, or Tarik Glenn. You never know!


    The 26th pick is worth 700 points. The 49th pick is worth 410 points. 291 points or better would make the trade benefit us. In the second round of 2020 if the Redskins get the 61st (29th pick in the second round(292 points)) pick or lower we win the trade mathematically. I would say our chances are pretty solid.


    If they get the 35th pick or so like I think they will. Then the 49th pick and 35th pick add up to the 17th pick. We will win this trade unless the Redskins are super bowl bound somehow. 

  7. I know I'm getting ahead of myself. I just want to bring this up and see what conversations it generates. 


    Ballard is doing a fantastic job for the long term. 


    Just kind of a side note. Putting it on paper for myself to see. 


    3/5 of the predicted depth chart will be returning already.

    7/11(TE/TE/LT/(WR2 maybe)) Offensive Starters returning.  10/11(slotCB) Defensive starters returning. No special teams returning. 

    Sitting on 59M THIS year to extend players such as Kenny Moore(24), Anthony Cosanzo(31), Jack Doyle(29), Eric Ebron(26), Mo Ali-Cox(25), Jabaal Sheard(30), Rigaberto Sanchez(24), Devin Funchess(25), and Adam Vinetieri(46), Joe Haeg(26), and etc... 


    I added Odum and Muhammad to this one because they are under contract for 2020/2021 season. 


    For the 2020/2021 season as of now these are all of the players that will be under contract from the predicted depth chart I did. 


    QB - Luck

    RB - Mack, Hines, Wilkens

    WR - Hilton, Cain, 

    TE - 86

    LT - 86

    LG - Nelson 

    C - Kelly

    RG - Glowinski

    RT - Smith

    TE - 86

    WR - Campbell, 


    DE - Houston, Muhammad*

    DT - Autry, Lewis

    NT - Hunt, Stewart

    DE - Turay

    SAM - Banogu, Adams

    MLB - Walker, Okereke

    WLB - Leonard, Speed

    CB - Desir, Wilson

    FS - Hooker, Odum*

    SS - Willis

    CB(slot) - 86

    CB - Ya-Sin, Tell


    K - 86

    P - 86

    LS - 86


    In conclusion we are getting a very very strong core of guys for the long term to build around. The correct way to rebuild in my opinion is getting closer to being finished. It seems Ballard may need to figure out how to maintain the rebuild and keep all of our core guys. The money is going to evaporate rather quickly resigning our own guys. 

  8. The back end gets tricky. There is a lot more talent this year than last year. 


    I think Ward, Lewis, and Autry are all kinda interchangeable so I wanted to get one of them as a backup DE so they could get some more reps. I think we are going to see a lot of different combos on the D-line. for instance I would be happy with any of these Autry/Ward/Hunt/Sheard     Houston/Autry/Ward/Turay   Ward/Lewis/Autry/Houston   Banogu/Ward/Stewart/Sheard. 


    Odum, Ross, and Mohammed could make the squad. We are going to be cutting some good players in my opinion unfortunately. 


    WR wise in order I think it'll be Hilton/Funchess/Campbell/Cain/Pascal/Rogers


    Everyone else feel free to make one. I would love to see them to compare please!

    I think the culture was established last year.

    I agree however, there will always be new names and faces it needs to be maintained every year. And if Suh comes in too early there could be a small chance something could be thrown off balance. So, lets make sure our rookies and new free agents understand how we do things with all the right influences in place first. 

  10. I would love to see where everyone's head is at for the 53 man depth chart for week one. I know it's early just for fun too see what everyone is thinking while the draft is still fresh. Don't worry about the practice squad unless you want too.

    Why does this feel like Ballards approach last year, with somewhat of a doubling down effect in regards to position especially with these mid/late round picks???

    Ballard has doubled down in every draft since he has been with the colts at least 2 times every draft. I love it. It creates competition and makes the positions younger. It also make sure the vets know shape up or ship out. 


    I like this pick it is going to put Ballard in a tough spot.  


    Corners - Moore, Desir, Ya Sin, Wilson, Hairston, Collins, Tell (corner/safety)

    Safeties - Hooker, Geathers, Willis, Farley, Odum,


    Some solid players in the secondary are going to get cut, hopefully we can keep them on the practice squad.
