  1. You'd think he'd proof read if highlighting a word in capitals! I'm more inclined to believe people then lol
  2. Well we hope they don't...... which sounds weird to say lol!
  3. Yeah I get where you're coming from.....but in the Bears cap position maybe the extra 3 mill means more to them than a draft pick.....they're currently only half a mill or so inside the cap and have a draft pool estimated at bit over 8 mill....they need every bit of money!
  4. So I assume the Bears will weight up if they care more for the 3mill extra in cap saving they get realising him or lose that and gain a mid/low draft pick. Rapoport on Twitter said it will be designated at pre June cut so maybe they already made their choice. But yeah either way I'd think he's worth looking at at the very least.
  5. Why would anyone trade for him now when the Bears have telegraphed they're realising him?! As said it's probably a cap situation so any team wanting him will wait it out until he's inevitably let go surely.
  6. Personally outside of Darrisaw I didn't really see anyone who could potentially come in and make a difference at LT straight away and once we went edge that really passed on that one. Even the names that were mentioned on here pre draft Jenkins, Eichenberg and Cosmi are all looked at as RT projections or even moving to guard so probably wouldn't have provided a solution really.
  7. I'm not nitpicking just a genuine question....was this really a historically deep and talented OT draft class? From what I saw there may have been a fair few but they seemed to average out talent wise fairly quickly after the first handful or so.....and LT in particular didn't seem to be that deep
  8. I've been higher on some of Ballard's previous drafts but I wouldn't be as down on it as some here around a B-. I would say though that a lot of people seem to like the Paye pick but dislike we didn't do anything with LT but I think as soon as they picked Paye first they dramatically reduced the chances of doing anything at LT anyway. If you look at were we were when the round 2 pick came and put aside who we picked I'm not sure anyone jumped out as being a fit to sort out LT, for me in round 1 it was either attempt to sort out edge or LT but we weren't doing both and tbh I've waited for years
  9. I think I would have been more miffed it there were the tackles that went just above us left on the board.....I'm not 100% sold on the move myself I'd just like to think that Ballard and co have more knowledge of his particular injury extend to be confident it's not a future issue.
  10. I get people's concern with the injury....... but I would like to think the Colts have sought the opinion and expert advice of professionals with knowledge and experience of theses injuries and his particular injury rather than just googling it on the web and then winging it!
  11. Well this officially puts to bed any notion that Ballard doesn't draft according to BPA rather than need. Tbf I was rolling my eyes and scratching my head when the pick came through, I wasn't expecting a double up on edge and one carrying an injury too. But I guess as fans we tend to want instant returns from drafted players and are reluctant to always see the longer term picture. After sleeping on it and doing a little research I can see Dayo has a lot of upside and was a 1st round consideration to plenty of teams without the injury so I can see the attraction for Ballard as we have struggled
  12. Just my opinion but I would have thought that if the Jets weren't interested in taking a QB at #2 then they then would have been shopping the pick around to pick up some draft capital...isn't like there aren't any QB needy teams out there. The fact that no insider has even got a whiff that they are listening to offers for their pick suggests to me they want to keep it which in turn usually means a team is looking at a QB.
  13. Personally I'm not overly familiar with how these things work out but anyone think Ballard would have had his nose put out of joint by Irsay altering his offer or then Hilton announcing to the public that's what happened?! Like I say I'm not too familiar maybe owners are more involved than I realise, they part with the money after all.
  14. Tbf it's not Ballard job to keep them happy, it's to put the team in a position to win and if it's without them so be it.....and we all have to remember every team is dealing with tough financial decisions this year....not every player is going to come out with the result they wanted! And in some ways it shows how out of touch some players can be with what's around them....in a world where many people have lost their financial security and are struggling to look after their families these players are on social media banging on about not getting enough millions to keep them happy!
  15. Nothing is official yet so obviously things to sort out still but that seemed to be the most popular option on table from reports. How they sort out home or away needs to be decided too and as you say every 4 years we'd come across the issue of meeting that conference twice. Whatever happens it seems to be a 17th game is inevitable at this point.
