  1. Thank you for this straight forward, enlightened post. Ballard wasn't giving GM Speak when he pointed out that in his learned opinion we were missing something in the lockerroom. We were missing some leadership and attitude. OK. He and his leadership team likely have been talking and agreeing about seeing this as the season went on. And how ridiculous that a player instantly loses those abilities when he isn't on the field. JERK wasn't the right word, but the point was correct according to our GM. A Reggie White could come in as a FA and make an immediate impact on the culture. lol. I think building what is needed will happen if CB keeps drafting his high character types.
  2. Reader, Armistead, or Byron Jones might make sense. Getting two of them could be a coup for our defense. Them wanting to play here is the concern though.
  3. I see decent ability in this "lowlight" piece. He wasn't particulary accurate or special when throwing on the move was he? Just going by this, i didn't see enough here to push him up the draft board. Ability wise he is no Marcus Mariotta. Or is he?
  4. Your 7th may be someone else's 4th best QB that could turn out to be as good as anyone other than Burrow. It shouldn't be hard to understand. Ballard explained his idea about grading players and to not over draft because of need. Your favorite QB, that by my readings he is a 2nd rd, even for some a 3rd guy, isn't someone to get excited about just yet. And speculating on a message board pre-Senior Bowl, pre-combine, pre-individual workouts is really just for fun. What i find weird is posters here that know best with so little information.
  5. Would Nelson trade giving up a sack for not ruining the 2nd half of his teams season? Don't know, but watching someone have a meltdown over this is ugly.
  6. Retires at 28 and i think he is a Hall of Famer.
  7. You will have the opportunity to copy and paste this terrific dose of reality many many times between now and draft day. Please, please do. Our Colts need a QB with much better throwing ability.
  8. I thought he proved he couldn't make the throws this season. Long ones, short ones, timing ones, with touch, accuracy issues galore. He is what he is.
  9. Yawn. Better info will be available just before the draft after professionals scrutinize the subjects.
  10. NO! We wouldn't have beaten NE and would have been slaughtered by the Ravens. Eb, nor his players would have been up to the challenge.
  11. You Dingus, the off season runs up to Opening Day of next season.
  12. Since i can't project what anyone will become, i do prefer to go with what i see for now. Walker is someone that we can agree to like his trend a bit. We noticed his tackles bumped at seasons end. I'm always reminded of Ray Lewis, after a season of low stats, complaining mightily about the guys in front of him not eating up blocks so he could do what he was known for. It looked to me like Hunt was getting more 1st down snaps late in the season and doing some good pounding on the inside. If i saw this right, it would help explain Walkers surge in tackles. There is always more to the story. That said, Walker being called one of the better LB's this season is a significant stretch for me. He would fall more into a sea of average. Okereke does make him more valuable because we can sometimes get him off the field in situations he is the most vulnerable in. Walkers lack of speed locks him into being vulnerable on any play, but let's project that his effectiveness gets better with better play in front of him and with even more game experience. Getting to the spot is very mental for his position, so we can have reasonable expectation of upside. I guess i would hope he gets near the level of Danny Trevathon who i liked during his best seasons in Denver. My eye test sees Walker as probably a whole step slower to the sidelines and a lesser athlete in coverage. Just my thoughts. And Denver still let him go after his 1st contract. And yes Ballard loves the guy.
