  1. This times 100! Could not agree more. I understand based on film they thought they would have a walk in with that pitch on third and goal. But Taylor was playing well and has been feeling it. If you are going to go for it on fourth down anyhow you run the ball up the gut or off tackle behind a very good run blocking RT in Braden Smith and you do that two times. If you don't get it you are likely at the 1 instead of the 5 and who knows what happens on that drive where Buffalo takes over. I really have gotten sick of the JB short yardage package si
  2. Hindsight is obviously 20:20, but the other thing about going for it on 4th down there at the end of the first half is that the logic is likely "Hey if we don't succeed they would need to march 95 yards in 2 minutes instead of giving them the ball back only up 13-7 with 2 mins and likely 75 yards or less to go". From that logic it can be argued that it makes sense. However, when you factor in that the Bills were still able to go down and get a TD there, that is basically a 10-14 point swing in a 2 minute period in a game that ended up being a one score game.
  3. Congrats to Dan on winning the 'Ship in the Joe's league. My squad picked the wrong week to fail to show up in the big game. That's what happens when you rely on a bunch of hated Titans and they die against GB lol At least next year will likely mean a move up to the Elite league and another chance to interact w more of the community members. Kudos to all the Joes league participants for a fun year.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. I actually find the idea fascinating to be honest. I remember when Luck retired and articles came out saying that Luck and the Colts front office came to a "compromise" or "settlement" (two words I often saw used and found weird. I found it weird since the "compromise" or "settlement" was basically the Colts letting him keep everything and not demanding money back. The real compromise/settlement as far as I read was that the Colts reserved his rights if he came back and that was the agreement. So it sets it up that if he ever did decide to return, the Colts either take
  12. Looking pretty good man. Ekeler and Johnson are going to surpise folks and being able to trot out Thomas and JuJu for your two WRs is beastly.
  13. That can be rough. I also don’t particularly enjoy a league where TE is optional simply because when there isn’t a mandatory starting TE required, then the TE position loses a ton of value. So in the end this will will be a horse race to hoard RBs and WRs with RBs taking the main focus if you can start 4. If your opposition falls on deaf ears just plan accordingly and load up.
  14. While I highly doubt Luck comes back, and I hope for his own health and well being that he does not, I am super curious to see how it gets handled if he does. If he decides in 2021 that he wants to come back and the Colts then still hold his rights (as I know they would), does his contract simply pick up in 2021 w what he would have made in 2019? Does it pick up in the 2021 year of his contract? Or do they just hold his rights and have to negotiate a completely new deal? Not sure that I know much of a precedent for that scenario to know how it wo
  15. Look, I will miss Luck. So will our team and our fans. But at the end of the day I feel for him as a person. In a league where teams cut guys for multiple reasons and guys get hurt and cut, I would never begrudge this man for walking away when he said "enough is enough" with the injuries. Truth be told, if I were newly married and about to be a new dad and had millions of dollars and I kept getting hurt and was miserable going to work every day and I could afford to walk away, I would. And that is all this guy is doing here. It sucks for fans. Bu
