  1. And at this point, you use what you have. We have jails, we aren’t seemingly in the mood to build mental facilities.
  2. It’s always a two way street with any treatment. Perhaps he has refused treatment? I would be one to side on caution knowing his display of issues, that are definitely reflective of true mental health, and court order his mental evaluation from an independent physician and go from there. He does not sound like he needs firearms based on the snipets We have here, and I too am a firm believer in the right to carry. The mother poster certainly made his point that he poses a risk on the street to others and if filed and convicted, mental health issue or not, he needs to be locked down, ordered to
  3. No, they aren’t 100% immune either. You can certainly mitigate, and it appears the colts have but at the end of the day, everyone has a skeleton in their closet and everyone has a side of them that others don’t always know about. All it takes is that one influence and that one risk to become a headline. Nobody is immune. Could our team see these types of issues and removed them from their board, we will usually never know.
  4. This is definitely an ignorant act by these two for sure. I’m not sure what can enter a persons mindset to do something like this. Everyone knows who you are at the table. At the very least, the organizer of the event knows you. You are going to get called out and named and go to jail. It’s insane. I just can’t even begin to think of how they thought this action wasn’t going to end very badly for them. as for wanting this Baker kid on the team, I think many did want him, he was a top talent at his position. I’m not sure any team evaluations can reveal potential lunacy like this out o
  5. The league is making some progress there but unlike the MLB with having all those feeder leagues and developing guys for the big show, the NFL has nothing to really develop a guy who just isn’t ready to shine right out of college and because of the numbers, they just get kicked out and we never see if anyone has the ability to shine 2-3 seasons in competition and quality coaching, S&C and nutrition programs that are found in the NFL. I’m still baffled how the NFL has never been able or willing to get a developmental league up and running. I know that baseball bodies take way less
  6. Is there discussion that the league is considering having to reduce the salary scale due to the current economic crisis in the country? It makes sense but seeing it’s money and there is a Union for the players, I can’t imagine they are going to allow the NFL owners to get a reduction in payments break, no matter the financial crisis that’s here. With Rivers here now, he is more decisive, faster thrower, smarter player than JB has shown to be. It’s quite possible, Hines turns into Eckler II. So much of this teams success will all hinge on how much high level football Rivers has left in
  7. I agree as well as it sits on paper and potential. I think Johnson has a great skill set with size and speed and he seems like he is on the edge of being a capable starter or at least a valuable back up player. He isn’t “jump of the chart” measurables though like Patmon shows right now though. I hope one of the bottom roster guys has a showing this offseason to make the decisions easier. I would love for teams to be able to carry more players on their team for depth and development than what they do now for cases like this. Hate to see teams getting players with questions and need
  8. Yeah, I definitely agree with all of this.
  9. Did you even read and comprehend the post? It doesn’t appear so. As to comparing him to those two players, have you attacked everyone else in the thread who referenced Mack or others? It didn’t appear so. my reference to these two were simply for the effect of game planning around guys. I don’t care if Leonard is on or off ball lb’er, his pay would be expected higher if DC’s were building their game plans around what he does, and that is currently not what they need to do. He is just really good at what he does and the team will have to see where he and his agents see their market vs
  10. I like Patmon from what’s been put out there about him but man, the numbers are definitely against him making it this season. TY, Campbell and Pittman are guaranteed. Pascal is almost a certainty too. Fountain, Dullin and Johnson will all have familiarity in the system already and the coaches know where they are at in the development zone. Patmon will have such a short window to come in and impress in order to move one of those guys, if not 2, out of the way to make the team. what may, I say may, happen is that the team gets him on the PS for the season and sees how this current make
  11. Lol, I was thinking the same thing as the Doug. I was thinking man, that dude must be a very wide guy whereas Evans must be a very thin thorax with long arms lol. Glad you got that corrected lol. Thanks for posting it btw
  12. Eason is going to be a case study going forward if he pans out. Let’s say the evaluations were largely based on his performances from his Georgia season where he was able to run enough, throw on the run, throw with pressure in the face and hit long with solid accuracy. If most teams only focused largely on what they seen at Washington and ignored his early success, it will spotlight how good of a talent evaluations group Ballard has assembled and how information is dissected. If he flops, they can point to players are who they were later in their career, not what they achieved prior to. Evalua
  13. This makes more sense. We will just have to see, does Leonard and his agent push the narrative that he is more on par with K. Mack status or with the guys you list as a high water mark? I hope he is reasonable and not pushing the big dollar narrative only.
  14. If I’m re-signing just one, it will be Nelson. Protecting the QB is always priority and Q certainly solidified that job. Q will get the 5th year option and then contract dealt with. It’s quite possible the team initiated contract proposals after the season to see where the Leonard camp sits in terms of parameters and then makes a decision on how to move forward. While Leonard is definitely the best guy we’ve seen at his position for god knows how long, he isn’t K. Mack game changing level yet. DC don’t have to game plan around DL like they used to have to game plan around a Dwight Freeney. He
  15. I don’t want to see Irsay out of majority ownership of the Colts, the man has been a great owner. He is very passionate about his team, he has spent plenty of money on it and involves the fans in a lot of ways. He is quirky and just an eccentric man. Manning could absolutely be an asset to not only the team, but to Jim and the Colts brand. you are correct, as a fan, it would be fantastic if we could get Peyton involved in an ownership partner to Irsay, wow, how much more recognition would this team get just with that bump alone. I would love to have Peyton as a minimum, to have a rol
  16. We are definitely going to have to risk putting a talented kid with potential starter material down the road, on the PS squad wire. In a perfect world, we get our guys on the roster (6) and then we get that 7th kid on the PS to develop. Now, they all get the year of playing time and experience and hopefully free of injury and we see what we have. It guides needing to Re-sign TY or not imho. Hines and Dulin are excellent return plans. Patmon and Fountain are fighting the “needs plenty of development “ issues. Both have lots of talent but have many areas of redefinement needed.
  17. I know that Irsay has his girls primed to take over but it would be awesome to see Manning become part owner in the Colts. He would be an excellent voice for the organization, I don’t know how well he would be at the dealings of operations but man, just hearing him talk about the Colts and expectations and experiences would be 10000X better than hearing Irsay stumble through a press conference (even though I love Jim’s passion for the team, he is tough to listen to with his um’s and all).
  18. How many did we get after the successful 2018 season? I wouldn’t bank on anything except cowboys and the Pats getting the lions share of prime time spots.
  19. At this stage in the game, Clowney will either need to accept a one year deal with incentives to make big cash because he isn’t getting 18 million + any other way or he will have to take a below avg market 3 year deal if he wanted longer term security. I have the feeling, based on the many articles out there questioning his effort and football desire, that teams are real concerned to give him the long term contract with big money with large guarantees. It’s not going to surprise me if he doesn’t get a 1 yr deal worth 12+ incentives. He carries to many flags to give a Buckner like deal imho.
  20. How many people heard about us signing a DT in the offseason? Everyone talked about us getting a DT or QB with our pick and then BOOM!!
  21. That’s a little hyperbole as this group, on paper, like every other teams paper look after the draft, is as good as most in the league. You can’t expect a team to have TY and then land Julio Jones, Mike Evans and Deandre Hopkins in the draft while also solidifying every other position on the team. It’s not the way it works. Add in having a competent QB who gets to throw them the ball this season, now you have the makings for a really great wr group. Teams aren’t playing Madden 2020 , they have restraints as to how they can construct a team.
  22. I absolutely like what I’ve read about this kid. He did have a few mentions of drops though. I tell you what, the WR room is stocked full of potential right now. We know what TY gives us, we’ve seen Pascal and his development and everyone loves the Pittman Jr pick. Add in Fountain, Dullin and Patmon. I even forgot about Campbell and then you even have Johnson. Beats the days of Sean Dawkins and Gerome Pathon, Aaron Morehead etc...
  23. I’m not sure what the realistic numbers or parameters would be but basically give him some option that causes him to at least think about staying past this season if he isn’t sought after on the open market. Maybe it’s a 1 yr deal or maybe no deal is offered. I could definitely see Mack not wanting pigeonholed into a contract that is only determined by what the team feeds him. My thought from doing this would be so he stays motivated and forced to show he is better than Taylor therefore getting the larger share of game day reps. He then also gets rewarded for that. I’d fully expect that he isn
  24. Watching the film, he doesn’t look slow at all. I was expecting to see the peyton Manning speed but he is definitely faster than what they make him out to be from what I could tell. That’s just a plus. I liked this highlight reel he has put up. Of course we should, they never put up a garbage throws reel though. He had some throws in tight windows though that were WOW!! Windows are now gonna be like that all the time in the nfl so hopefully he can match that again. And he had some really nice slides as well, not half hearted, spikes in the ground, awkward looking Luck like sl
