  1. It's not as though they played LSU every game, Chad, so I'm not exactly sure where you were going with it. I believe they played two ranked opponents each of the past two seasons. The point is when the talent around him dropped, his play plummeted and the team sank. If you're looking for an elite, franchise QB, that's not a good sign.
  2. That's one way to look at it. Here's the other way. To win consistently over many years in the NFL you need a QB who can carry you when the talent isn't there. That's the mark of an elite, franchise QB. That's what you're looking for in a QB. You're not going to have a top 10 defense every year. You're not going to have all 5 O-linemen play every snap every year. The fact that Love crashed out with diminished talent at that level gives me little faith he could be a true elite QB who could carry a team at the NFL level. That said, I'm not anti-Love. With where we are in the draft, I would be okay with it. I'm just not quite as excited as others are about Love.
  3. Yeah, I'm with Chad on this one. If Ballard is openly talking this much about Love, they're looking elsewhere.
  4. It's also a small sample size... and it's PFF. It's not something from above. PFF also called Wilson a breakout player for 2019, ranked Trubisky as the best QB in the draft(20 spots higher than Mahomes) and essentially called Tillery a can't miss prospect. I think they might have even had Tillery top 10.
  5. It's a PFF grade based on 3 and 1/2 games of limited, situational snaps. Hopefully he turns into something, but in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't mean much.
  6. If we were top-5, I'm drafting a QB, but at 13, this is probably the best, safest option, if he's available. He's still young and you know what you would have for the foreseeable future. If Frank can work Carr into a consistent, top-10 QB, you can compete. Talent wise, he's not Manning or Luck, but there's enough there.
  7. I doubt Sheard's re-signed. Ballard throws praise at practically everyone and people run with it.
  8. A PFF grade in a vaccum... He's a top-80 pick on his second team, averaging a little over one sack a season and probably not long for the NFL.
  9. Basham beating up nerds in high school. Basham - great against nerds, not so great against NFL competition.
  10. People write off many of his sacks as being unblocked or whatever, but rushing the passer from that position is much more of a skill than people give it credit for. If every LB could average 6 sacks a season, they would do it. If Leonard can run down everything sideline-to-sideline, yes, send him after the QB, too
  11. I like it. It says you're not going to throw away 2020. There's no reason why Rivers can't hand the ball off for 4 quarters like Brissett did. He might also, however, be able to push it down the field occasionally and make a play or two in the 4th quarter.
  12. I don't know. He's talking about the success in the six years before Luck, but even with it, we lucked out and landed Luck in 2012. We can't help it if we're lucky. And the beat goes on? In 2020?
  13. He's from southern Ohio. He'll show up and play, I'm sure. Cincinnati is actually a very good football town, if they have anything to cheer for. If Burrow succeeds there, he'll be a hero.
  14. Here's the thing no one ever says about that. The Colts might have sent scouts to numerous games, but what they saw wasn't great. Love wasn't very good this year, so their opinions might have changed after seven games.
