  1. Good pickup on the story. Really interesting comparison on the Alex Smith trade to KC. One question I had after reading it: Ballard gave an expiration date on the offer, I wonder what that date was? I'm assuming it was the date the trade went down, and the Eagles waited til the last second to see if a better offer came in. And IF the offer expiration was the 18th that means he would move on to another qb who is currently under contract to secure an agreement before free agency opens, and to me there was only one other option available for trade: Darnold.
  2. I would say that I've noticed some interesting things based on their projections, mainly a run on offensive tackles. In 2019 seven tackles were selected between 21 and 41, and then six go between 4 and 29. In every pff simulator I've ran they project a run between 25-45, and if the recent trend continues, it will start earlier than that.
  3. Yeah I would be stunned and ecstatic if Parsons made that kind of drop. PFF's mock simulator is funny. Rashawn Slater fell to 21 in one of their simulations and I selected him...#2 tackle in the draft, and they graded the selection a C+. But if you select Cosmi out of Texas in that slot, you get an A-
  4. Agreed. If Eason had gotten in-game reps this may be a different story, but right now an extra arm is necessary. For a long time this franchise was blessed in a qb in Manning who, in addition to all other positives, made carrying a 3rd qb unnecessary.
  5. Exactly. Now the work done is, oddly, even more paramount, because as we know you can only pay so many core players. These next 4 drafts will be filling in gaps for so many who don't get extended.
  6. Assuming all picks stay in their current slots, left tackle. There is likely to be a run on tackles as we've seen the last few years, the Colts can't rely on a starter quality tackle being available at 54. The free agent market has better available defensive ends compared to available offensive tackles.
  7. Your first sentence nailed it on the head. Statistically there was no better qb available via free agency or trade. The Colts don't have the draft capital to move up unless you start including players, and realistically the team believes they are in a win now situation, and drafting a qb rarely draws big dividends in year 1. I will go out on a limb and say this, I think the Colts sign another veteran QB.
  8. The compensation was right based on salary. Surprised Philly didn't want more this year but ok.
  9. From Adam Schefter: Philadelphia has agreed to trade Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first, league sources tell @mortreport and me. Mod edit, to include details: First, the reported details of the trade: Colts send their 2021 third round pick to the Eagles, and will send their 2022 second round pick, for Carson Wentz. If Wentz plays more than 75% of the Colts' offensive snaps in the 2021 regular season, or 70% of snaps in the regular season + playoffs, that 202
  10. Maybe fairer to say every other year. 2018 and 2020 drafts have produced far better results than 2017 and 2019
  11. The big upside is the contract. Even if you have to execute a 5th year option right away(and you almost have to) it will still be less than Wentz. Compensation should be far less too, as its almost a given that NYJ are going to go with another qb at #2. It all comes down to 1) what kind of grade did Ballard have on Darnold coming into the draft 2) do the coaches think he is salvageable?
  12. His target numbers are huge, and we saw the jump in year 4 with him being on the verge of being an 80 catch a year player
  13. There is a real wave of "Colts should have won more super bowls" feeling out there, both within the fanbase and with other NFL fans. And maybe they should have, but as noted previously, there were a lot of other teams who didn't even get close. My brothers are Browns fans who haven't been close to getting to the super bowl for 31 years, so I cherish what the team has won.
  14. The short answer: too expensive to make that jump.
