  1. I did see there was a poll on last year's linked site but it seems only 4 people had voted so far so not sure anything is solidified yet
  2. I'll play along and address a few for arguments sake. Though I do not explicitly disagree with some of the points made: 1) Hooker 100% has not created the most turnovers. That would be ignoring the fact that Leonard has equalled his number of INTs in 2 seasons and that Leonard has also caused 6 fumbles all in one year less of time. Kenny Moore has also generated one less int and two more forced fumbles in the same time frame. Pierre Desir had the same stats as Moore. All I am getting at is that I think they envisioned Hooker doing a lot more than he has. And to your point, if I sa
  3. I think your focus here is on long term extension which is 100% NOT what my focus was. My focus as i stated was on "tagging" him. I would rather not have the potential to be on the hook for $7M in 2021 if he gets hurt (which has has at some point every year) and would rather he have to prove it and if he does in fact prove it then we lose out on roughly $4M. Period. We would have to tag him to keep him that extra year (or trade him or whatever the heck we do w that 5th year) instead of the $7M fifth year option. To me this becomes "tag him and po
  4. I see this decision as being a lot simpler than most of our fans are reading into: 1) Hooker was drafted for his ability to create turnovers. He has not done that well enough or consistently. Not worth rewarding him in any way when he hasn't. 2) Hooker has missed a good amount of games. Rewarding a guy that misses over 1/4 of your games is not a practice you want to make a habit of. Especially when as another poster mentioned, the locker room is taking note of who gets paid and what they've done. 3) It has been mentioned, but that $6.7M is guaranteed for inj
  5. I'll say this, I would not have minded Love down at 34. I did not want to have to give up any extra assets to move up with how deep this draft is. Heck Ballard has shot pretty straight from day one here and he keeps harping on wanting more picks. So moving a 4th rounder or so to move up did not seem likely. That all being said, almost everyone in the world knew the sweet spot for Jordan Love if he fell past NE/NO was going to be pick 27. Seattle had traded their first rounder every damn year since 2012. People knew Sea was a prime spot at 27 for anyone (Colts or any tea
  6. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/deforest-buckner-18955/ The contract breakdown shown above. Actually like the move more now. As others may have mentioned before, this was basically a 4 yr $84M deal tacked on to the $12.4M franchise tag. So it became a 5 year $96.4M deal. When you look at the front-loading, Buckner gets $23.4M from us this year and then basically another $17M next year. After that, there is no dead cap hit if he did not make the roster. This guy is so talented, I doubt that ever happens. But basically after next yea
  7. Love the player. Not too keen on the contract, but we have money so I get it. Hate losing a first without getting any other pick compensation back. Not sure I like this much, but admittedly does make us better
