  1. Okay, lets sign Clowney, cut Brissett and trade for Adams? Do we have enough money to keep Brissett and add these two playmakers?
  2. I don't care what you call it but I call it a FORCE in the middle that was clearly lacking w/o Woods in the lineup! Did you not wonder what's wrong with Leonard for the first 4 games of the season as his presence was not noticed as much? Is it a coincidence, Leonard suffered a concussion that had him thinking retirement due to a 3 wk headache? Why did our D in 2018 grade so high and became respectable but in 2019 they struggled so much? It's because we didn't have that force in the middle to eat up blockers to allow our LB's to do what they do best! Why did Tony Dungy come out and say the most important position is the DT and immediately we traded for Buckner? Maybe Tony reached out to Ballard to give him his thoughts who knows but the moral to the story is a dominant Defense has a Dominant force at the DT position regardless of 1-2-3 tech terminology!
  3. Moose, this is not rocket science to believe this D should be much improved. Let's just say we didn't add Buckner, the experience the rookies gained last yr and their projected jump in 2020 alone is enough for an improved season. Bobby O is projected to be a Star, Leonard All Pro, Turay has sack leader potential which is All Pro, Rhodes in this system could be back to All Pro, Rock Ya-Sin ready to break out, Houston already is a force, Hooker with improved pass rush could be Pro Bowl talent, ETC... It all start upfront with our 13th pick, Deforest Buckner, a former ALL PRO! Yes, Could, Should, Hopefully but its not an Einstein formula to see we should not only be good but have the potential to be GREAT!
  4. Hello Crazy, let me remind you that Rivers hasn't missed a start since 2006 and currently is on a 224 game start streak! With the Colts possessing arguably a top 5 line, where does it make sense to spend 9 MIL that will never see the field? Why spend 9 MIL that NEVER delivers the THRILL? Lets cut Brissett and sign Clowney!
  5. Khari definitely looks the part to be a key piece to a Championship Team but will never reach Polomalu's level as football instincts made him superior! The staff agrees with your thinking about Bobby O and recently listed him as a breakout star potential player for 2020! All we need to be successful is for both these players to just hold their own and become solid contributors but if either becomes a Star is a bonus that just may earn a trip to Tampa.
  6. Last yr was a complete mess from the moment this Staff let Al Woods go, to AL retiring, to all the injuries at key positions. The BIGGEST setback to this Defense was a lack of a presence on the interior line and SECOND was losing our best pass rusher in Turay. This game is won in the trenches and in 2019 we lost 2 HUGE key pieces to the position, which trickled down to the LB's and DB's. Living in Northern Indiana, I literally saw the Chicago Bears D go from Elite to Poor overnight once they lost Hicks for the season. One player but at THE most important position that this Staff failed to realize in 2019 by not resigning Woods. Tony Dungy even came out & said the key to a great D is a dominant 3 tech and poof we trade our 13th pick for that dominant 3 tech in Buckner! Buckner brings that type of presence that WILL make the entire D jump to the next level. Pro Bowl Potential: DeForest Buckner - Pro Bowl force at a the DT position with our 1st rd pick Justin Houston - Pro Bowl veteran presence that could be on the brink of All Pro Kemoko Turay - #1 pass rusher in QB hurries before season ending injury & a Star in the making Bobby Okereke - A Star in the making and paired with All Pro Leonard Darius Leonard - An All Pro who now has an All Pro DT in front of him Xavier Rhodes - Former All Pro who will thrive in this D and with this pass rush Kenny Moore II - A Star in the making with improved pass rush (see above) Malik Hooker - A Star in the making with improved pass rush (see above) Rock Ya-Sin - A Star in the making with more experience and improved pass rush (see above) Denico Autry - Had 9 sacks in 2018 and could thrive with the new talent Solid Contribution: Khari Willis - A breakout player candidate that will be a solid player but lacks Star potential Anthony Walker Jr. - Another solid key player but will never reach Star potential Tyquan Lewis - Could be a key player if used at DE but lacks Star potential
  7. To be honest Lucky, as an MJ supporter my entire life even I didn't like how this doc portrayed the GOAT player that I grew up to worship! I understand his actions were to get the best out of said player but his strategy was not for everyone! I simply could not watch the nonstop criticism of Scott Burrell and it pained me to hear the GOAT talk this way to one of his teammates. Even know he was just trying to get the best out of Burrell, I think with Burell's personality it derailed any type of success he was destined to have as he did not have that type of mentality. Shame on Jordan for that.
  8. I sighed at this doc but there is two sides to every story! I get it he was the biggest * but look at it in a different light. He would've never, I'm sorry the Bulls would've never got over the Bad Boy Pistons if Jordan didn't take the Ulysses S Grant General mindset and create their legacy!!! He literally pushed the entire ORG to overcome the hurdle that was right in front of him and that is a LEADER just like GRANT! Great Leaders dont always get the recognition they deserve even after it smacked them in the face!
  9. Not a great Human but lets hold off judgement until each of us walked in this legends shoes. His gambling addiction is no difference than any other addiction. If you say you have no addictions, let me add the GOAT to your title.
  10. Michael Jordan was and is the BEST player EVER to play the NBA game! No other opinions matter to this point so carry on!
  11. How many times do we need to see a TD pass with Hooker in the picture to realize he is not what he is made out to be. Playoffs vs the Chiefs whee he did not suit up due to a leg injury or the glove tackle on Henry on our home turf? Either this D is completely confused on coverage or Hooker's value is completely overvalued is yet to be seen but 2020 should be a tell all.
  12. I see nonsense Lucky and I wish I had something to see a dancing purple elephant lol.
  13. Lucky, I'm already on this train for 99% of the roster but it's the most obvious players that are truly struggling and our Org simply ignores the purple elephant in the room that I get most upset. I don't want to mention any names and bad mouth players who suit up for the Shoe but we all watch the same movie Coach!
  14. When Coach Reich talks, you get 300% of your daily sodium intake! I will let you print the Tshirts and have all the glory!
  15. Yikes Scoob, I just seen a GHOST!!!!
