    Die hard Steelers fan with family who are loyal Colts fans. My Aunt moved to Indy after the steel mills in Pittsburgh starting forcing the family apart and my Uncle has been a fan since the move as a native of Indianapolis. I've always had a soft spot for the Colts, except when they play Pittsburgh.

  1. Yes. I was also a little iffy on the Dayo pick at first as well, but getting a shot at two first round talents at EDGE in one draft is unheard of.
  2. Man i respect you. But I just have to say the talent gradient in college is so vast compared to the NFL. I Trust Ballard. It makes sense and no way in hell am i making that trade. Whatever happened to sitting a kid for a year? I mean you got a bag, buy in or gtho.
  3. Love Cowherd. Don't always agree with him but more often than not I do. Always does a great job. One of if not the most rational and down to Earth talk guys out there. Been a fan for over a decade. Great interview.
  4. OK my point here is, relative to the haul that other teams gave up to draft kids who have never taken a snap in the NFL, and looking at the fit they get with Wentz, how is there even a reasonable comparison here?
  5. Build a man a fire and he will be warm for the night. Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life. -Terry Pratchett All these pundits are doing this for click bait, playing pin the tail on the donkey with takes. Nobody knows how it will play out. That's why we play the games. All you can do even as a manager is make the most educated guess possible and prepare your men to the best of your ability.
  6. You think. I mean a 12 game stretch that had Wentz in the discussion for MVP he was playing so lights out. That's not enough of a sample size for you to take a chance on him? Put this in context. Reich left and the offense as a whole in Philly went south. Pederson did not have a grip on that team either. There were a lot of factors that contributed to the mess in Philly. That team is run very poorly, which can again be illustrated by them trading up to take a 166 pound WR in one of the deepest WR classes in memory. They get praised for that by some, but Pittsburgh gets crapped on f
  7. Welp, I have no problem giving the USA today a D either.
  8. Too many to pick from. Freeney and Sanders come to mind but I have a bias on that. Saturday is up there in my book too.
  9. Villanueva is more than likely going to be playing on the right side for them.
  10. Yeah he is, as my understanding of his release is as more of a cap space issue than anything. Granted, it's always a red flag when a guy gets released, especially if he's being replaced by an unproven rookie, but the cap issue is definitely a big reason why this happened. The fact that it happened post draft when they have what they think will be a serviceable replacement on hand again points a bit more to cap relief. Chicago doesn't have a terrible roster.
  11. I'm giving this a like without even reading it. (Promise I will). It's true. It's proven. Anyone who's ever played in the snow knows why this is just true.
  12. Well, Houston does have a problem. I think they have more than one. So if I question them taking Mills with their first pick of the draft that automatically makes me an * who should just shut up and sit in the corner? If you don't want discussion and debate then lobby to shut the forums down. That's what we are all here to do. So to say that anyone who has an opinion knows nothing is to say that Ballard knows nothing. The draft is about opinion. Do I know more about the team he gets paid to run? Nope. Do I know the game of football at the ground level? Yup. I can be right and I dam
  13. Tell that to Tom Brady, or Terrell Davis, or Mathis for that matter. Obviously I agree with you that it ought to be, but I should have been POTUS based on what people said about me in high school. Guess what, it didn't happen. LOL. Honestly I'm glad it didn't either. Just do the best u can with what u got and everything will work out. Life is too absurd and unpredictable to try to boil it all down to some math equation. Also, Draft picks are like porn, kinda hard to describe why you like this or that, but you just know it when you see it.
  14. Yeah there is that too, but to me giving a grade is more about how a team just navigates the draft because every team has busts and hidden gems and walk off home runs from time to time. Nothing is 100% It's more about just kind of giving them credit or demerit for doing the best they can for what they had to work with.
