  1. I absolutely love this Hentges kid. Showing that he can catch an nfl ball, added to his ability to be that blocking specialty TE guy, that makes him more valuable than Travis imho. I honestly see Doyle done here after next season and Hentges slide into his spot if his play continues like we seen last week and that’s not to diss Doyle at all because I absolutely love what Doyle has given this team as well but Doyle is older, more expensive and had a repaired hip. Not a good combo when it appears you have a younger clone already in place and cheaper for 4 years. You sign EE for 4 years, and he won’t be cheap so that is the offset imho to keeping Hentges with the future in mind. But I can’t see any scenario that we keep 5 TE’s sadly. We are going to lose one really good TE to someone this year. Im not sure what the Andrews and Boehm story is here except we have Howard Miss now in the mix instead of the OL coach they had last season. I know Mudd isn’t the head oline coach but he brings in a solid voice and as I recall from the Manning years, he is like 1 chance and then moves on from a guy. Glowinski has has some troubles so far but I do think we all felt of the 5 starters, Glow was the weakest of the links and perhaps with Big Q in, the center is more focused on assisting with the LG spot as opposed to the RG like we seen more last year. Also, Kelly hasn’t been in at times as well. If we have all 5 guys starting, I think Glow will be the adequate starter again and we get his replacement next year in the 2nd round draft. I am not going to be the most Shocked if the team moves on from Wilson but I’ll be pretty surprised. I see Hairston as the odd man out here and although Milton has shown to be a very solid ST player, that’s his ceiling, he has been a horrific CB. At the very least, when the games have counted, Wilson has played well enough to gamble keeping him over Milton and Hairston imho. I don’t think the team wants to risk losing Tell if they try and sneak him to the PS. I still believe we need improvement in our 3 starting cb’s for next season.
  2. Will it help to complain a lot more during the regular season on those crappy calls by the refs? JK and giving you some crap lol
  3. Might just be how Luck gets to spend his Sunday’s for a few, at home washing the car, spraying water on the neighbors that came over. Lol
  4. That’s a perfect scenario and everything lines up for the colts to afford a trade with JB and some QB needy team, which currently, there isn’t any unless the panthers just lost Cammy girl. Perhaps a team loses there starting QB in week two and Luck shows he is good to go after starting two games, that’s the only scenario that anyone is offering the colts something of significant value to cause the colts to deal JB, and I’m not even a huge fan of JB anymore, he plays too inconsistent for me to see high draft pick trade value. The only thing that would marginally push his trade value up is if someone loses a QB and they panic saying we need just a guy who has shown ability to lead a team and JB has that, he just isn’t always consistent. Is that worth a team making a panicked trade for JB or is there 10 other similar players around the league to make deals on that push the panic level down and cost a later round pick? Hell, I’d look at the kid who shredded us last week for trade value, he moved the ball better on us than JB did on them, right? Imho, I don’t see that perfect scenario hitting us during the second week where the team would get Kelly back from suspension and a needy, panicked team willing to part with a 2nd round or better pick, which in my mind is what it would take to part with JB as adequate insurance for the colts.

    Hentges

    Hentges is Doyle’s replacement. Has everything Jack has plus youth and a non-injured/repaired hip. I would keep the 4 TE’s and shop Travis or see if I could shop Doyle/MAC.
  6. We have solid depth at safety, not superstars outside of Hooker and if/when Geathers is healthy. The other guys are solid depth. I’m not losing sleep on safety. I’d lose sleep on the oline depth of anything
  7. Sadly, I agree. I had such high expectations for this kid.
  8. AB In fact did threaten to quit on the raiders. Why would you want this type of drama in an organization is beyond me. Will he or won’t he play if we don’t give into his next command? Nope, not for me.
  9. Of these three, AB is the worst on the list of Diva. He honestly believes he is bigger than the league. He was a big head case in Pitt and now he is acting a fool in raiderland. Talk of retirement if he doesn’t get this or that, just retire fool, quit issuing empty threats. I’d take Ramsey though over all 3. He certainly has the talent but he is a turnoff if he believes he is going to get paid like a QB. Maybe after the NFL strike happens after next year because of the ridiculously overinflated costs of the nfl and it’s payouts, maybe we can get back to guys playing football to enjoy the game, make a decent living and allow the true fans to return to the actual games and afford them. When attending 1 game for a family of 4 sitting in the 200 section costs are $700-800 for tickets and food/drink, that’s crazy. Now try buying ST and make that cost x8-10 games. Wow!
  10. Wilson imo hasn’t looked like a 3rd year guy picked in the second round. I don’t think it’s beyond plausible. If they see Tell and Willis as someone they want to keep and groom because they have more time and show real upside than Wilson, it won’t shock me. I’ll be disappointed but not overly shocked. Wilson has been an enigma.
  11. I’d take the deal if we could assure it’s a high top 5-10 pick in the third. I’d be able to deal with letting him go if we could get them to say 3rd rd pick with possible 2nd if the pick is outside the first 10 picks of the 3rd. And again, I wouldn’t trade to NE for 2 1st rounders just out of principle lol
  12. I’d love to see them play better and make all the plays we want but I also want them to be experimenting with stuff to fix what needs fixed from preseason film sessions. This is where you learn against other teams. They may not be doing exotic stuff either but we get to see our guys in patterns on film breakdown. I’m not worried what the record of preseason is or how they managed certain situations. I’m more concerned In how guys block, tackle and run routes.
  13. Well I’m certainly not advocating nor do I really think he will be traded. I’ve said, if someone blows up the phone with a second rounder, you do it. I’d try to squeeze them for a conditional second, making it a first if he hit parameters.

    Hentges

    Travis is the receiving TE as is EE, Doyle, MAC and Hentges, by most accounts are your blockers with catching ability. I’m not sure the team keeps 3 blocking types and only 1 that’s considered the receiving type. I sure hope Luck allows us to just keep only 3 QB’s and not 4 (one being suspended 2 games to start). Allows us to keep 4 TE’s. Cuts are gonna be rough on fans this year.

    Hentges

    My point was the plan of the Colts. You say he is Doyle, Doyle is gone after this season as a FA iirc. MAC was a BB project who came to football. Has t he battled through several injuries so far and what were his stats in 2018? I’m not complaining that MAC is bad or we should t keep him, I’m simply saying, in terms of team planning, you replace Hentges with Doyle in 2020 if you plan on keeping EE. If you aren’t planning on signing EE or even DF for that matter, it may make more sense to keep MAC and keep developing and resign Doyle and hope you can sneak Hentges to the PS for this year. We will be losing some talented guys this year at wr and TE, just depends on the future planning the team has in mind. Having layers of talent to lose is a good thing for the team, bad for the fans who hate to see them go elsewhere.

    Hentges

    What has MAC actually done vs what his perceived potential? Idk, we just have two guys with speed and height so does he provide more blocking abilities than Hentges? Also, he would be the replacement to EE, so the future planning would be, sign MAC instead of EE and also signing JD not keeping Hentges. Depends on how the team plans on spending money for this position.
  17. I have to wonder if CB is checking on Kelly’s maturation to be able to handle the stress of being sat behind a guy who most feel shouldn’t even be on an nfl roster. Is it truly an evaluation of the team that PW is better than Kelly or is it the team testing his mental ability to just keep clean, patient and calm in the process? We don’t know why Kelly isn’t above PW at this point. What the fans know is PW isn’t making a roster over the potential that a Kelly has provided here and what he showed in Denver as the back up. My belief is that CB is testing his mental side to this adversity to assure he can trust him fully that he has matured. Would give him confidence that if the right trade offer came for JB, Kelly could step into the stress role of being available for a starting role should Luck be injured enough to be forced to sit. Who knows

    Hentges

    MAC in my opinion is in trouble in making this team given we have EE and DF as big, fast receiving guys. If it’s a speedy TE you desire, I’d look at Travis then. I’d be just fine going with EE, JD and Hentges and Travis if we kept 4. MAC has done nothing spectacular since being in the league, another promising talent not yet realized. Was he injured or some reason he was running what a 320 pound lineman runs? That’s a slow slow time but tbh, he was hired to be a blocker not a speed demon. If he shows he has catchability talents, he is a weapon we could use. We don’t need 5 guys on the offense at one time with 4.30 speed, we need 5 guys who have a mix of 4.3 and 5.0 who can catch the ball cleanly. Remember, Klecko was a DL guy but caught a TD pass when his chance came.
  19. Because we are structured to pay him 10+ million as a back up QB with Luck here imho. He will go where he can make money and have a chance of competing as a starter on a team that has a question mark with an aging QB or a young QB who the team thought was the future but struggled.
  20. Which QB’s would JB legitimately beat out if traded tomorrow? So many teams have young’s, developing QB’s right now that it’s nearly impossible to take a starting job from anyone. In fact, even those with a couple of question marks as a starter, they have a draftee that’s in place to step into the spot so even the shaky teams aren’t really looking. Teams like NY giants or Cincy. It’s not a QB starved league at this very moment as all teams at least have a solid starter or they are in early development. JB only has value to a team who loses a starter to injury and has a legit shot at playoffs. That’s my opinion of it anyhow.
  21. We may not totally know what we have in Kelly but rest assured, I can say that the team does. If Kelly can hold up to the adversity of the mental aspect to his game, he has the talents to be every bit as good as JB has been thought to be. This comp pick isn’t going to be what we hoped for. I don’t see a team coming in and offering him a 5 yr deal worth 120 million and the keys to the team. He hasn’t shown that elite skill set altogether yet. I think he is just going to be someone’s decent back up for their team, wherever that ends up being. I once thought we were going to be in line for a max 3rd round comp by holding him, now if we got a 4, I’d be surprised really. If someone gets absolutely desperate and offers a 2, I’m jumping all over it. Kelly has shown he has stayed out of trouble so far, has shown he can still play QB and he has tape from Denver days that provides proof he has talent, his issues were maturation. I’d be fine with Kelly as our back up at this stage given we are offered a 2nd round pick for JB unless it was from the Pats, that would require their 1st rd pick and to be able to kick BB in the jewels lol.

    Hentges

    Ken Dilger would be nice to have again.
  23. This was done to show the fans that Luck is still a possible player. Now come buy some tickets fans. Lol it was good good to see from my perspective
  24. I thought I seen Kelly in there. At one point in the early few series, they did have Andrews at center I believe.
  25. Has Pascal done anything so far to warrant that last wr spot? I was a big fan of what Johnson could bring but can’t bring bricks for hands to any game when competition is so tight. Hogan had his A game today in catching. I want to find any way possible to keep #86 though. If that means sacrificing Travis, so be it. That dude has massive potential. Great blocker and it appears, he can catch. Doyle’s replacement after next season? Agreed. Johnson loses out on his spot today. Has two games to redeem self.
