    The money for Rivers and Brissett ends after thus season.   Next year we will be close to paying our QB rookie minimum. 
    What we’re paying THIS YEAR is meaningless NEXT YEAR.  
     

    As for picking in the 20’s next year,  if you read the threads on this website that possibility just up and vanished this weekend.   According to the Sky Is Falling Crowd, next year we will be lucky if we’re picking 12-16.   
     

    Apparently, we officially suck.  So much for the playoffs.   At least, that’s what I read here.   The biggest panic I’ve seen on this website since I joined in May of 2012. 

    I know what you are saying. To counter, I don’t think we have been to the playoffs for nearly 25 years without a QB named Manning or Luck. Rivers is no more than a Kerry Collins or a Jacoby Brissett. So you can see why the glass is mostly half empty. I remain positive until I don’t...

  2. Like most teams with a decent all round roster, injuries is the difference maker. In general terms, our trenches on both sides of the ball can counter those potential weaknesses which you rightly mention. Possibly more so than you think. Some fair concerns though. Nice post.

    No point in cutting him now anyway. His salary is guaranteed. My point is, Brissett's present and future in Indy is already written on the wall. They brought Rivers in because he can run the offense better then Brissett and then he's gone after this season. 

    Perhaps...

    25% which is 16500. Glad there will be fans. I hope teams in NY realize they can let some in and it will be perfectly safe.

     

    I am slowly starting to get excited for the season. The nfl and sports teams all made me really mad. But it’s starting to hit now we are actually going to get football. Michael Pittman junior is one reason I am getting so excited. Watching his videos he is so fun and likeable. I can’t wait to hear how he does in camp. Sad that we won’t see a Eason Kelly battle in the preseason.  Maybe if we are lucky we will see Eason towards the end of the season if we have a playoff spot wrapped up. I would rather see him the Jacoby. 

     

     

    You have zero knowledge to tell anyone that it is perfectly safe for 17000 people to gather in close proximity for over 3 hours, shouting and screaming and ejecting all kinds of stuff from their mouths etc.

    Uh, didnt say not a leader.  I said not a GREAT leader, imo.

    Not of the type we were accustomed to.  He was a different kind of leader.

    In my memory, Luck didnt elevate the players around him and especially thecorganization the way a Peyton, Brady, Elway, Rivers, etc did.  Luck was a different “cat”.   I would further argue a leader of the type i am speaking of (peyton or brady) would never have walked away as Luck did.  Just look at what Peyton went thru to get back on the field.  
    Of course Luck was a leader, but he will never be remembered as a GREAT  leader.  He led, sure, he just didnt “drag” players along like the best.

    He just didnt.  Usually it was he making the big play, while a Peyton type was more apt to elevate and use the tools at his disposal.  At least that was the way i saw it.

    Ok, not a great leader? What utter tosh.

    Regarding Bill Polian, he is the best GM we have ever had IMO. Until Ballard wins a SB it will remain that way. Yeah he had arguably the GOAT at QB but he was also responsible (along with Irsay) for drafting Peyton. People need to remember Ryan Leaf was considered until Polian interviewed both he and Peyton. Polian is 100% responsible for drafting guys like Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Bob Sanders, Dallas Clark, and signing Adam Vinatieri. The only thing that still ticks me off about Polian was, he gave up on the perfect season in 2009 when we were 14-0. It was his call, Irsay could've over rode him but did not and let Polian make the call. Caldwell and Peyton went along with it because it is called chain of command after Irsay. Polian screwed the players and fans on that one at a chance to make history.

     

    My rankings GM wise since the Polian era:

    1. Bill Polian

     

    2. Chris Ballard - so far better than Grigson regarding his Drafts and Free Agency, Grigson had Luck in his back pocket from 2012-2014 so of course Grigson has the better win/loss record.

     

    3. Ryan Grigson - the combination of his draft picking and Free Agency pickup's from 2013-2016 ruined Andrew Luck's career. Nobody will convince me otherwise. 

    No way Peyton went with quitting on the perfect season. He was fuming. I really considered packing it in that night. Lucky I calmed down.

    I would say eventually Andrew Luck belongs too but it is too early for that. He was great at times here and overall a very good QB. He got us 4 playoff wins and 4 seasons of 10+wins. Vinny will get in as well - that is a no brainer, outside of that I don't think I have left anyone out?

    Dallas Clark? Probably didn't do enough, but he was a smashing player....
