    Luck was a total disaster. He ran up some numbers but he wasn't anything other teams worried about playing against. He never won a big game in his life. I am not a fan of quitters. 

    He has won bigger games than Watson.

    No point beating a dead horse. You can marginalize the conversation by leaning on the greatest outlier in all of sporting history and ignore all the other data but I'll not stick around for that. 

    Even if Brady was a first rounder,   the bucs didn't spend a first on him.   He was a free agent.   Manning went to 2 super bowls in denver.

    How many teams in the playoffs last year had a starting QB that wasn't drafted in the first round?

     

    100 % of the teams that won the Super Bowl last year didn't

    Are you serious right now? Do you honestly think the Chargers would trade Herbert right now today for Buckner, Pittman and Taylor? Not in a million years. It sounds like you're suggesting that price would be too high for the Colts to pay?

     

    Did you see what it took to get Matt Stafford? Do you hear what it would take to get Watson or Wilson? The entire NFL knows what half of this forum doesn't seem to understand - a franchise QB is worth whatever it costs to get them and you get them whenever you can. You know the best way not to give up 3 firsts and 2 seconds for Watson? Draft one yourself. Ballard knew 1000000% that Luck wasn't coming back last year and you're happy that he got a DT, RB, and WR instead of a franchise QB? If Ballard thinks a team will win a Super Bowl with average QB play that's supported by an All Pro DT he's wrong and so are you if you think average QB's win Super Bowls. 

     

    Its also so funny to me that in this SPECIFIC thread I hear nonstop that Grigson only got good results because he drafted a great QB. His record and playoff wins dont count because he drafted a great QB. Then why aren't you and everyone else on this forum destroying Ballard for NOT drafting a great QB? Heck that's all it takes right, just ask Grigson?

     

    It helps when you're drafting #1 overall

    Ring of honor? Really ... He was good, but if AC is ring worthy, so are most above avg. Players.... Not much of a ring at that point.

    He was as much a staple as Bill Brooks.   Not saying he should or shouldn't,  but AC was a stud and played his whole career here

    Where so u get that Smith will male 10 million a year? Have looked at the top  right tackle salaries? This Oline is bout to get very expensive. So alot of our cap will be in our Oline and a WSL. How will we invest in the skill positions?

    The best at their positions in the league.   Not average players

    Although these 3 players will be free agents next year, the contracts of these free agents below will forecast what it may cost to resign our players. Note the values are predictions for contracts that will be given.

    Lavonte David (ILB) *3yrs 40-50M

    Brandon Scherff (G) *5yrs 75-85M

    Taylor Moton (RT)     *4yrs 65-72M

    I understand David and Leonard play 2 different positions and schemes but the APY may be a starting point.

    The colts have the 5th year on Q

    It’s okay to make that statement, I see what your saying. The problem is it’s unclear how that statement relates to the topic we’ve been discussing on this thread. Were you saying that just to say it without implying anything? Or was it meant to mean that Wentz is a more desirable prospect than either Peyton or Andrew?

     

    Context is important. 

    This guy thinks Nelson and Leonard are average.    He makes hot takes.  No context
