  1. I hope he's great and everything we need him to be. Just concerns.
  2. There's college football... then there's the pros.
  3. He paid TY and he paid Castonzo. So don't say it isn't his style.
  4. Who fumbles a lot, and has a lot of miles already. Let's pull back a little.
  5. Not too blind to see all these memes! jk But Idk if the Patriots need JB, they are in a position to draft a good one.
  6. He's going to go to high for us. Won't make it into the 2nd round.
  7. Here is the disconnect between your positions: In your first statement it is clear that it is of your opinion and your mindset that staying put is best and trading back is weak. Then in your next statement you claim you can't say one way or another that staying put would have been better because you don't know the Colts brass mindset. You are trying to argue one point by looking through opposing mindsets, that doesn't work. You need to take your approach that you believe to be better, and do your own research based on what you believed was the Colts need at the time and who you would have picked at their original positions. Heck one pick is easy, we know the colts selected Leonard with a pick they already had, not one they received in a trade back. There's one answer for you already. You just need to figure out the other picks. Then do a critical evaluation as to whether you think your team structure would have been better than what we got. Pretty simple, take ya maybe 30 minutes.
  8. Every pick is a what if and gamble. What if they didn't trade back and draft a bust? It was a gamble. Your line of thinking follows a false assumption that at any given players draft ranking means they are better than those that follow. Which cannot be proven to be true or false.
  9. But you seem to have all the answers here Mr. Armchair GM. you want to state they should pick BPA, but you haven't gone back to do any research to suggest that the Colts would have been better off if they had stayed put in previous drafts. If you can prove that BPA is better than picks, then you might have some credibility. But sitting here and arguing that your position is right, or that your strategy would be better than a seasoned GM, without any weight behind it is pointless. I'm merely challenging you to back up your statements. Now here you are back peddling and trying to find a scapegoat, while still defending your position. You can't have it both ways. Put up or shut up as the saying goes.
  10. Behind the meme, I remember that. Heartbreaking scene.
  11. It's not about evaluating positions, I don't think he personally evaluates any positions (he'll watch tape and make his own opinions), he relies on his scouts for that ultimately. His is evaluating the worth of each position against one another. He isn't prioritizing WR over other positions. Which an argument can be made that if you don't have a solid foundation of a team (front 7 on D, O-line, QB) then WRs are pointless. He may also prioritize defense over offense first, as there is an argument for that as well.
  12. And you don't know if the BPA they did select would have panned out or not. How about you do some research to back up your claims and research the top 10 draft players we could have selected had we stayed put, and how well they panned out. Better yet, just do the top 5 for each. One stipulation, don't go and say they would have picked someone 15-20 picks after that actually panned out, you have to be at least realistic for your results to be credible. If you don't want to put in the effort to back up your statements, then no one will take you seriously and you need to stop being so pompous.
  13. Fluke or not, questionable or not, the fact is we got him because we had the picks to draft him and other skilled players. Furthermore, do you think hitting on undrafted picks wouldn't be a fluke?? Recap 2018 and all our trade backs: We got Quenton Nelson and Braden smith (Jets got Darnold), Turray, Lewis, and Wilkins from trading back (Philly picked Dallas Goedert), We got Cain and Fountain from trading back (Browns got Muarice Hurst). Seems like trading back benefited us more than if we would have stayed put.
  14. So you want volume from UNDRAFTED low skill players rather than getting volume in draft worthy players?? Wasn't Leonard grabbed from an acquired pick?

  17. @chad72 Why cant you receive messages, you have them disabled?
  18. I think the cultural aspects of places are the largest hurdles to mass changes. You have to be able to accept the Cons to go with the Pros of each. State run: you have to accept higher taxes and more say on what you can or cannot do at times. Privatized: Higher costs which can result in not being able to have insurance at all. Ironically I fell the US could do more to force prices down...lookin at you big pharma...increased demand on Medicare and Medicaid affect the cost of health insurance. However, population growth and aging population demand (baby boomers) are something that you just cant help. Plus like you said about populations being lazy and not staying healthy has increased the cost associated with healthcare due to increased chronic illnesses.
  19. Maybe a few reports on how this has happened to dozens of people does not apply to whole of how NHS is supposed to work. But the evidence is out there that it happens. The specialists in the hospitals are openly complaining that the NHS is too restrictive on what and when they allow doctors to perform procedures. These restrictions lead to people not getting procedures they should and could otherwise get in non-state run healthcare systems. and I very well could be associating malpractice by doctors with NHS policies. But some of the reports were clearly stating that the NHS restrictions denied people from getting procedures done until it became too severe to cope on a daily basis. When preventative care and procedures would likely have been best in the long run for the individual and cost to NHS. Idk if your so high up that your "echelons above reality" as some like to say, but this is what is happening, this is what people think of the NHS. The policies and procedures in black and white might not be saying exactly this, but how they are implemented is creating these situations. I just needed a simple blood draw and a fibro liver scan. It was over 3 months to get them scheduled, and it was a full day off of work to complete. In the states that's a walk in and a couple hours. Top it off the cost was paid for by my insurance and no cost to NHS, course that doesn't matter if the system is just back logged. That speaks more towards your point about cuts to funding and lack of ability to hire more workers. Which is a highly unfortunate situation and wish you guys were more funded. But it's a zero sum game, the money has to come from somewhere. Either cut from someplace else, increase taxes, implement premiums, or expand co-pays.
  20. No, they are just more likely to deny care, or put severe restrictions on when certain procedures, be it life saving or cosmetic, can be done. Which is the case in the UK and NHS. Which pointed out, that even degenerative issues are not being dealt with in the early stages because they do not meet the requirements. They wait until the individual is in worse shape before they are allowed to qualify. By then the persons quality life has significantly diminished, or in the example I gave, renders them unable to work before they can qualify. The customer of state run health systems is not the patient, its the government. That has, is, and will always be the case. Many, I wont say all because I haven't researched all, state run healthcare systems implement tight restrictions on when various surgeries or other procedures can or will be done. Long wait times for procedures are also an issue, scheduling for basic procedures can take months and even up to a year in some places. This is true of even the highly touted Norwegian healthcare system.
  21. From what I saw, the memo allowed, most all food places to stay open if they wanted and many other department stores. There was very little that is actually forced to close down. Or I just read it wrong, more likely the latter.
