  1. Unfortunately, I have to miss it, but I plan to catch it when it hits Sirius On Demand later.
  2. Ballard to be on NFL Radio, Late Hits with Bill Polian tonight during the 7pm hour.
  3. I think what’s very indicative of Ballard’s talent for finding gems is that after 3 years, even the most negative posters on this board have been very tepid in their criticism, if any, of this years picks so far.
  4. The rumors were started by whichever team drafts him tonight.
  5. About this time in 2013, Bjorn Werner was projected to be a top 10 pick. And by draft day, he fell to us at 24. So there’s that. Yep.
  6. Both of his parents were professional basketball players in Spain. He brings a lot of basketball traits to his game. In basketball, you’re always trying to create spacing, which he does naturally on the football field. He also blocks out and goes after the ball like a rebounder. Impressed with his film, but I’ve only seen the highlights.
  7. My favorite WR in this draft class. Gets open fairly easily. And when he doesn’t get open, makes the contested catch. And catches everything with his hands. We have a couple excellent basketball players with good football skills. This guy is an excellent football player with good basketball skills.
  8. Definitely a reach for a story. It would suck if he said he’d hate to win 3 in a row, which of course, would be a story.
  9. You can say that about any player in the league. Odds are better that with the additional year in the league and in the same system, that they’ll improve their numbers.
  10. Yes. Every team, every year. Its human nature. It’s why a good agent or used car salesman will never go broke. And also why garage sales remain popular.
  11. I think we’ll contend this year, regardless.
  12. I think it’s less about saving money and more about maintaining chemistry. Teams that spend big and trade big seem to be on a perpetual roller coaster, every year having to adjust their rosters. They struggle to keep their young breakout stars and typically have to cut the big name free agents shortly into their contracts, creating a yearly roster reshuffle.
  13. IF we drafted right, then you have to expect improvement year over year until Father Time hits you. So I also expect our young team to be better in 2019.
  14. Look at it this way....a lot of other teams paid big money for players who couldn’t help their previous teams win a championship. We kept a very good group of young players that got us a little closer. They’re only going to get better and when they ‘break out’, we’ll be in a $$ position to keep them if we desire. Our offense was one of the best in the league in 2018 and is fully in tact heading into this year. The backfield is young and now experienced. Funchess may prove to be the guy that keeps drives alive. Defensively, we’ll see. They’ve got guys who like to fly around and make plays and they got better as the year progressed. Again, pretty much in tact heading into this year, so the chemistry will only improve. Don’t underestimate chemistry when it pertains to defense in the NFL (see Patriots). Ballard likes to bring in guys who show promise, are under appreciated, and just before their big breakout $$ year (see Autry), so that guy might still be out there in free agency. Regardless, the draft looks promising for filling some defensive holes and adding depth.
  15. Whatever the results were last year, they turned out pretty good for us.
