  1. I re-read this again and realized you weren't saying what I initially thought you were. At this point, it seems like creative accounting with pushing money into a voidable 2nd year, so you weren't too far off. I guess it leaves the door open for another year if this one goes well for him.
  2. She was talking about possibly moving Moore to FS and Rodgers to NB. There was no mention of Tell....
  3. Mooney was picked in the 5th by the Bears, but projected by most as 7th Round/Priority UDFA.
  4. He's listed on their roster on their website and not on the PS, so I think he's on the 53.
  5. He was a big hitter in college, but I think wasn't consistent in technique and would go for the big hit too often, leading to missed tackles. He's on the Eagles.
  6. I can agree that we didn't do enough to help the safety depth. Unless we bomb the rest of the season, I don't see any way they shut down Wentz.
  7. I believe restructuring doesn't necessarily mean TY gave up any money or took a pay cut. It usually has to do with converting some of his salary to a bonus. He still gets the money, but that bonus portion doesn't count against the cap.
  8. Thread is no longer relevant and is going completely off-topic.
  9. His ability to learn the playbook isn't even relevant to what I'm saying. I'm talking more from Seattle's point of view. It surprises me that they put a waiver claim in for him considering he's a very different QB than Russell Wilson or Geno Smith.
  10. That's an odd one.... Eason doesn't seem like a fit in that offense or scheme.
  11. At this point, he's probably doing that, but trying to find DB's.
  12. I think it was more about us getting a deep threat (TY) back that keeps a defense from stacking the box constantly.
  13. He's had some really good seasons and a few not so good sprinkled in.
  14. Dennard is really good veteran depth! I feel like Skrine is more of a slot CB than outside. He's had moments where he looked really good, but I don't think he's ever been able to consistently string together strong outings over a sustained period of time.
  15. Dez is possibly coming back at the perfect time as well with Campbell going out.
  16. It's interesting how bent out of shape some people get about us not having a top notch back-up QB, when most teams don't. Most teams have guys that have been around the league for a long time, but were never able to do anything of note (whether as a starter or not). You have guys like Chad Henne, Colt McCoy, Mike Glennon, and AJ McCarron. If any of them have to come in and play meaningful snaps, they're not putting the team on their back and winning the game for you. They may be able to play the role of game manager and not mess up too bad, but that's the general reality of back-up QB's. Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the exception, not the expectation.
  17. I was thinking with the 17 games now that it could come week 4 or week 5, but we're past that now.
  18. I disagree. He's a willing tackler and stood out to me during the past couple of games as making a handful of quality tackles.
  19. Most likely. It's a good scheme fit for him, they need pass rush help, and he'd be playing for a contender.

    Incorrect. He was rarely injured in college and when he was, it wasn't bad. Gregg Doyle, is that you? I think he can definitely help fill that role, but keep in mind that he's had injury issues too. They really haven't. They were almost exclusively possession style receivers with maybe a few exceptions. Rarely were teams worried about a Patriots WR taking the top off of the defense.
  21. Toliver is an interesting player to potentially bring in. He has a prototypical CB frame, was a 5 star recruit out of HS, solid strength and speed, can use his size to bully WRs, and projected as a good fit for zone-heavy teams. He also has red flags galore. His coaches at LSU said he had an entitled attitude and was immature. He also had surgery on an injured shoulder, then managed to later reinjure it. He has a lot of the physical attributes, but seems to lack instincts and has gotten by on his physical talent alone because he needs some technical refinement.

    Colts +7

    The only thing you can do at this point. Throw on some rock and roll and just......
  24. If you're not starting (Campbell is), you generally need to be able to contribute to ST to be active on gameday. Strachan isn't competing with Campbell, as they play different roles. He's competing more with Pascal and Dulin. Pascal is the most well-rounded WR we have and Dulin is a ST ace. Stachan is odd man out at this point. Strachan made a couple of tough catches in traffic, but not much yet. He's got a high ceiling, but I don't think he's anywhere near it yet. Campbell blew the top off of the defense on his TD. How has he lost his burst?
  25. While it's kind of a wild idea, I can at least appreciate the thought that went into projecting an alternate reality for the Colts based off of the hiring of Tressel instead of Pagano.
