  1. agreed on Eason... he needs some preseason game action for sure... but i think he could be a real player, in the future. As for Stafford, he had the misfortune of playing for the Lions... not many QBs would look good there...or the Jets...or Bengals etc as far as wins etc
  2. I agree with that. I DO think that he could play LT and do a good job of it...and it IS easier to find a guard than a LT...but when you have the best at the position, why move him. I was simply saying that he HAS played LT (all through High School) and was recruited to play LT in College by a lot of top teams... the move to LG was based on what Notre Dame wanted to do, not on his ability. Either way, we are all Colts fans and i'm not trying to argue... Speaking of High School rankings, which you dont care much for... go look how highly Jacob Eason was rat
  3. Chris Hinton was one of the best LTs in Colts team history... you know where he started out playing? Left Guard. "Hinton holds the distinction of being the only offensive lineman in NFL history selected to the Pro Bowl or All-Pro at four positions – left guard (1983), left tackle (1985-89), right tackle (1991 with Atlanta), right guard (All-Pro with the Falcons in ’93)." I think you're missing the part where i said that i'd rather keep Nelson at LG... but i'm also saying that i think he could move to LT and do a fine job.
  4. yes and he was the 3rd best OT in the entire country, in the 2014 class... he was offered by nearly 30 top programs, but he wanted to go to ND...the already had McGlinchey at LT and they wanted to put the 5 best guys on the line...Nelson could play LT or LG but McGlinchey could only play LT, so they ran with it. Go look through some high school class rankings at various positions and get back to me... they do translate more often than not!
  5. Nelson was actually the #3 ranked LT coming out of high school in 2014 and #29 ranked player overall in the country no matter the position... He moved to LG at Notre Dame simply because they wanted to put their best 5 on the line and McGlinchey could play OT but not OG and had been there a year, already (class of 2013) Now i'm not saying i want to move Nelson, he is an All Pro LG and i'd rather keep him there... but to say he couldnt do it because he wouldnt be good enough, is probably not correct, either https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2014/quenton-nelson-14848#
  6. Well, my take... if you are going to rely on your D, why not make it clear that you're going for it/in 4 down territory (Rodgers probably would have ran it on that 3rd down, had he known that they were gonna kick a FG on 4th, to at least make it close enough to consider going for it...he said he thought they were going to go for it on 4th, and so he took a shot at the endzone instead).... all that aside, go for it on 4th... if you dont get it, you still have the 2 min warning and 3 timeouts and the Bucs would have been pinned DEEP instead of having a good return and shorter field and you're st
  7. as for his question... i'd put DeForest, Nelson, Leonard and Taylor up there... TY is a FA and no promises he is back... the four i listed are the future of the team
  8. agreed, it would be like us trading a prime Luck or Peyton within the division... i would keep him and get nothing and let him stay home, before i'd trade him to a division rival, if that were the only option... luckily for Houston, there will be plenty of other teams knocking on the door!
  9. Trevor Lawrence could be done in 3 years...would you give up a 1st for him? It's the NFL, nothing is promised as far as how long a player will play...or if the "stud with super high potential" will every pan out in the league as a decent player. Using a 1st round pick on the closest to a sure thing, when you have a team ready to win now/the next few years, is better in my opinion than hoping that #20something pick turns out to be a star. If Luck had not retired, and played another year...and you were running another team in need of a QB...would you trade a 20 something first rou
  10. He is big, strong and more mobile than people think...has a cannon for an arm...has experience and is good...could be "elite" on the right team, i think...yet has not complained about the fact that he has been on the Lions his whole career
  11. Buffalo is ranked 26th i think, against the run... so i want to see a really heavy run game with some well timed play action, this weekend...and i also want to see Jacoby stay on the sidelines the whole game... he is a great guy and great teammate , but it just kills our momentum every time he comes into the game for our not so tricky trick plays... and when he kept it instead of giving it to JT on Sunday, it killed the drive when JT would have easily had the 1st down.
  12. Stafford is just about 1 year older than Andrew Luck... we wouldnt be switching every year, he could play here for a good 7-8 years (so the full window of our core young players). We could actually build around him, and he is WAY better than anyone we could draft in the 20s this year, at any position, and it is not even close. So trading our 1st for him would be no different than trading our 1st last year for Buckner... you're using that 1st for a SURE THING instead of using it on a gamble towards potential
  13. Love Leonard and Hilton giving support...but the team was saying the same thing about Jacoby, this time last season...so it doesnt mean much... if Ballard sees a shot to make the team better, he will, at ALL positions (including QB).
  14. I do like Frank, but do not like him calling the plays on offense... but it is definitely not unheard of, to change coaches after having a good record... look at Denver, while Peyton was there... 3 straight division crowns, a Super Bowl appearance and tons of other accolades, yet they fired John Fox after another good season, simply because the Super Bowl was their goal, not just the playoffs... sometimes it does take one coach to get the team to a certain point, and then a change to spark them enough to get to that next level. Not saying it is what we should do, but it is not as c
