  1. Man, after years of Grigson and Pagano (hate to include him, as I liked him as a man.. but less as a coach) it feels SO good to have a pair you trust in. You know when Ballard speaks, you know he knows what he's talking about. I was so relaxed during the draft, I knew I wouldn't question ANY move Ballard made, no matter who I wanted or what my mock said. We're building a machine, and we're moving way faster than Ballard himself expected. We're a top 4 team in the NFL right now. Chiefs & Pats (I hope) are trending DOWN as we trend UPWARDS. I haven't been this excited in a while.
  2. Am I the only one who wouldn't mind taking Jawaan Taylor? I think it would be crazy good value & an opportunity to really solidify an already great front. Anyone know our plans with Braden Smith? Are we planning on keeping him at tackle or do we intend on ever moving him back inside? I've been curious.
  3. And I’m hoping there’s no rule that says you can’t trade a pick back to a team that you acquired it from, because this could get embarrassing.
  4. So what are you guys thinking the chances of trading up for “our guy” is? NYJ has come out & said they’re willing to trade. I could see Ballard considering it. Do you guys think giving up or first second would be worth say.. Q.Williams? (I’m sure this has already been asked. Didn’t feel like looking, sorry haha)
  5. Cain is coming off a significant injury so there are still question marks there. Fountain failed to edge himself into the rotation when I think he should've been able to (if he's the difference maker we need.) The JAX & KC games revealed to me just how much we do need another decisive wideout. In those games, it would be easy to conclude that Luck had a stinker, but it was really just a lack of separation. I mean that Jags game was just painful to watch, the routes those guys are running are obviously off screen, but I could just TELL that play after play, they were failing to threaten that (admittedly very good) secondary. We cannot overlook this need. I don't even think there is that much separating the need for DLine & that of WR. We have to select one with one of our first 3 picks, even after acquiring Funchess.
  6. It's so easy to watch that game (against KC) and conclude that Luck had a stinker. That game was way more on the receiving corps than Andrew. Our two worst games of the season: JAX & KC, were our worst because the lack of dynamism in that group; they could get no separation. I don't think we can afford to not take a WR w/ one of our first 3 picks (even with Funchess and Cain returning) I got to the end of this response before realizing that this has nothing to do with this thread . Just caught my attention.
  7. I don't think it's crazy that some are disappointed. I, personally, am not utterly disappointed, but I'm also a little *sigh* watching guys like Flowers & Collins (who would fit in) get signed. We have 0 room to distrust Ballard as he hit last off-season completely out the ballpark without signing a big name. I understand he's sticking to his guns and building through the draft and not overvaluing, but I mean.. we have a lot of money.. and I feel like we are very close. I feel like it would be outright irresponsible to not lock down at least one position of need through FA & address the rest in the draft. I am a little *sigh* as previously stated, but seriously I couldn't trust this guy more. Slightly conflicted.
