  1. Becton is going to be the biggest bust of the draft if he goes top 15
  2. Now now, let’s be honest, you wouldn’t have drafted CMC in the top ten either, and you would be extremely right to not do so. Although I would disagree if you put CMC over Barkley, but it’s very close. Barkley is the better runner and the reason he doesn’t have the same receiving impact is only because the Giants didn’t live and die entirely by their RB coming out of the backfield. I’m pretty sure CMC was their first, second, and third read on every pass in their game against us.
  3. Stitches is 100% right. Mack is a good back but backs are so replaceable now that it’s a joke to overpay for one. ‘Taking care of your own’ doesn’t mean ‘spending frivolously at the expense of your team’. When guys like Raheem Mostert, Aaron Jones, and Phillip Lindsay can come in and be bell cows on rookie deals, it practically makes the position obsolete. Wilkins and Williams each would have had the same production as Mack and it’s not like Mack has lit it up in the passing game anyway, the one area that makes all the difference in RB play.
  4. It didn’t end like we hoped but it was still entertaining. We were still playing for the division with three weeks left and beat the Super Bowl champs in their own house. Considering our franchise quarterback retired two weeks before the season I’d hardly consider that a horrible season.
  5. Well we’ve definitely got some incredibly smart and trustworthy football guys at the helm right now, plus an owner who lives, eats, and breathes Colts. Whoever they decide is the guy, I don’t think they’ll struggle to give him a convincing pitch to rock the ‘shoe. I don’t particularly want to get into the whole back and forth among us fans over who is and isn’t he right guy to lead this team in the next era, but I am not sold on a single one. I know there’s an answer out there but I really would not be disappointed if we go this offseason without drafting one of the early ones. My be
  6. Conklin’s really only had two decent years, both bookending his time in Nashville. He’s going to be an example of a guy getting paid way too much after a contract year breakout. I’m assuming he sets the new bar on RTs salary this offseason, not getting paid as much as Solder did a couple years ago, but at least matching him as a free agency bust. Plus he’s only played RT in his NFL career so I certainly wouldn’t look at him as Castonzo’s replacement.
  7. That’s essentially what I’m saying. Alignment is less important than assignment. Wade has always had a one gap 3-4. I don’t think we’d need as much overhaul on the front seven as you’re thinking but the back end might need a little with Wade’s man coverage tendencies. I would prefer him over Eberflus but the chances of it happening are non existent.
  8. Not that there’s even a chance of it happening, but the 4-3/3-4 debate is so dated in this era. Aaron Donald was scientifically engineered in a lab to play UT in a 4-3 and he’s playing in Wade’s 3-4. Base defensive alignment doesn’t matter, and it matters even less since you’re playing nickel at least 60% of the time. What you ask your linemen to do matters far more, and Wade has always had an attacking line, rather than read and react. Same philosophy as Eberflus.
  9. Big league thread @EastStreet. QB is obviously the biggest need on this team and I would prefer going the young and malleable route in the draft. I’m all for betting the farm and moving up for the guy but we’ll see how it plays out. Interior Dline is the next weakest spot but I see a number of guys approaching free agency that I would love to target and I’m sure a couple have to be available in March. These are the two most important positions on the team and fixing them is easier said than done, but it is something that they’ve got to get to work on this offseason or we’re going to squander t
  10. Always with the either/or proposition for fans. It is possible to have a dominant defense and a highly paid/elite QB.
  11. Long post warning This dude is a certifiable stud and his career will be utterly wasted in Cincinnati. I would go all in on trading up for the first overall pick to land this guy. Our team almost made the playoffs with a bottom tier QB and an old kicker that lost a couple games on his own. Frank Reich is a damn good coach and carried this team admirably with what he had. Ballard has made a lot of great moves and while I don’t always agree with his moves, his vision and philosophy is exactly what you want from your GM. This team has the roster and leadership in place to really buil
  12. Y’all just jealous. My man made about a million dollars for every route he ran. I’d kill for that job. I definitely feel for him though, not monetarily, but because he definitely came here to win and play with Luck and neither of those things played out.
  13. I’d like to see Kelly get a legit start but not because of the schedule ramifications next year. I don’t see much difference between playing the Broncos versus the Raiders or the Bills versus the Jets. Any of those teams could surprise next year.
  14. Base defense doesn’t matter anymore. Teams are playing nickel defense over 60% of the time at minimum so it’s all moot. That said, yeah I would be all about seeing more man coverage than zone. Historically, the best defenses have been ones that can get physical with WRs at the LoS and stick to their man in coverage. Pass rush matters less than coverage, the Seahawks showed that in 2013 and the Pats and Ravens have shown that this year. You can manufacture pass rush but you can’t manufacture perfect coverage without perfect coverage.
  15. There must be like twelve alternates per conference if Brissett is one. If that doesn’t prove what a joke the pro bowl is then I don’t know what does.
  16. You want an example of a team who has been consistently beat up and had significantly limited snaps for numerous starters, yet weathered the storm and are sitting pretty at the top of their division? The Kansas City Chiefs. All pro MVP QBs missed games and they brought in a guy who was retired to fill in for a few weeks and played quality football. Tyreek Hill has his suspension at the start of the year, arguably the best WR in the game for my money, on a pure talent standpoint that is. Sammy Watkins has missed time, Damien Williams has missed time. Their number one overall pick and
  17. I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that.
  18. Yeah the injury excuse hasn’t flown with me this year, glad to know the numbers backs that assertion. Oline has been healthy, defense had been mostly healthy. Only defensive starters to miss time have been Sheard, Desir, Hooker and Leonard, and even then it was only a couple games a piece. The worst injury has been TY and that’s only been a few weeks. Every team feels beat up.
  19. I really wish instead of bringing in Hoyer, we’d have brought in Matt Moore. He actually really held his team together when Mahomes went down and has kept them in the race. As far as journeymen QBs I’ve always thought he was underrated. He sure as hell could not have done worse than Hoyer. In his three games this year he shellacked the Broncos in relief of Patrick, lost to the Packers in a close fought game, and then beat the Vikings. As far as journeymen/relief QBs I don’t think you can find a better one than Matt Moore. Matt Moore relief stats; 2-1 record (loss to the Packer), 6
  20. Telling message board members to ‘breathe’ or ‘relax’ after their team, the team who this message board is about, loses in such an ugly fashion, is about the most pointless endeavor you can take on a football message board. What the hell else are people gonna talk about, how solid Banogu looked? Or Rock Ya-Sin not getting burnt to a crisp 10 times? I don’t think anybody’s standing on a ledge over this but there are absolutely some criticisms that can be put on the team without the blue colored glasses types getting all holier than thou at every other post.
  21. You guys are all a bunch of band wagoners. It’s obviously not Vinny’s fault. If he wouldn’t have missed 30% of his field goals and been just as bad on his extra points you guys wouldn’t even want to cut him. He won a Super Bowl with us 15 years ago so he is above criticism. Besides, if he were 20 years younger, aimed it right, and that ground not been in the way he’d have made it. Obviously there are no other kickers that aren’t already on a roster that can make extra points so we we might as well roll with him the rest of the year and just go for two and every fourth down.
  22. I wouldn’t get this move. We already have two guys that are the exact same profile; aging, bigger edge defenders that can move inside at a pinch. Houston and Sheard are just fine and it would be redundant and a waste of draft capital to trade for him. Interior linemen and corner are the only places that should be addressed if we want to make a move.
  23. I’m bored and just killing time til Darius Leonard and Justin Houston send Flacco to an early retirement on Sunday. If if you could take any five players in the league; salary cap, age, and injuries all being factored in, who would you bring? This is based on our current roster. 1. Patrick Mahomes - The man is a stud already and is going to be the face of the league for years to come. He’s hurt now but that wouldn’t concern me as it should heal up just fine and he’ll be back to his usual self. 2. George Kittle - He’s not at a tremendously high impact posi
  24. Also I don’t want Campbell or Funchess dipping in to Pascal’s snaps. That man has earned every bit of the #2 WR snaps. I guess they’ll probably take Cain’s snaps because he’s pretty much just been a body out there.
  25. Just in time to start easing them back in slowly for the powerhouse teams like the Broncos, Roethlesbergerless Steelers, Dolphins, Jaguars, and the two divisional teams we’ve already schooled. Get them healthy but don’t rush it because this team is for real.
