  1. I love Irsay's phone conversations with the players just drafted in this latest episode. It reminded me of the contrast between Irsay and Pagano conversations after Hooker was picked. Pagano's was cringe worthy and Irsay's was classy.
  2. I heard Pat McAfee talking about this. He said the Eagles tried to get to #2 with the sole intent of taking Z. Wilson, but the Jets wouldn't make a deal. The Eagles came away felling they couldn't get Wilson at #3, so they traded down with Miami. McAfee and crew were just repeating rumors they heard, so take that for what it's worth.
  3. Same here. Kiper, Ourlads, TSN, Football Weekly I started seriously following it in 1989. What an incredible draft that was. Check out the top 6. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1989_NFL_Draft
  4. The trade proposal is unrealistic. The first pick in the 3rd round is way too much for Jax to pay for moving from 25 to 21.
  5. The Bears where the regional team on TV for much of north and central Indiana before the Colts moved to Indy in 1984. Many of us who grew up watching football in the 60s and 70s in north and central Indiana watched the Bears every week. My family were all diehard Bears fans. I was too and still am a Bears fan, but I started following the Colts in 84 and attended games at the RCA dome in the late 80s and early 90s. I moved away from Indiana in the mid 80s just after the Colts arrived. Somewhere around 1990 the Colts surpassed the Bears as my primary team, but I still follow both
  6. The request of 2 1st for Wentz, if true, is laughable. I doubt there are really multiple teams with serious offers, and thus the Eagles would have zero leverage. They've burned their bridges and need to move Wentz. Here's a scenario that might make sense for the Colts giving up 2 1st. Colts get Wentz Ertz 2021 1st (pick #6) Eagles get 2021 1st (pick #21) 2022 1st The Eagles are bluffing with the Chicago trade leaks. They really need to give up Wentz plus draft capital to unload his contract. This is similar to the Rams giving up
  7. Anybody else feel like the GIF storm has reached diminishing returns? It's kind of polluted an otherwise interesting thread.
  8. Presuming the Colts extend Smith and eventually Nelson (after a 5th year option), they will have 3 very highly paid pieces on the OL. It will be difficult to have a highly paid LT on the line with those three once they are extended. That's why I think the draft is the way to go. Have the LT on a rookie contract for 4 (or 5 years). By then, maybe Kelly (or Smith) peels off and the a highly paid LT new fits in as the new 3rd highly paid piece on the OL. Given the importance of the position the pick should be 1st or 2nd round depending on the value on the board at the time. I cou
  9. Given the contract, Philly almost can't cut him before June 1, 2021 and even then it would be very costly for the Eagles in both 20201 and 2022. If they want to unload him and his contract with the least salary cap impact, their only hope is to find a trade partner. Any trade partner is taking on a significant contract for at least the 2021 season (~$31M even with the $3.3M/year signing bonus being already paid by Philly at the time of signing), which would exclude some teams from even being able to trade for him. That team might be able to restructure him, but if he refuses, he
  10. Brandon was killed in a car wreck before training camp his rookie year.
  11. And teams can drop wins for draft positioning?
  12. Game pass has been how I've viewed Colts games for many years and you no longer have to wait until Monday to see the game in full. For at least on year, you've been able to view the game in full as soon as the game ends -- you just can't watch it live (you could watch pre-season games live). So last year, if Colts play a 1:00 Sunday game you can watch it at 4:00. The year before that, you couldn't watch until the 7:00. And years before that it was Monday at 12am. In addition you can listen to the game radio broadcasts live. On game day, I'm usually listening to the
  13. I was thinking the same thing when I read the title And it's been awhile Since I've seen the way the candles light your face And it's been awhile But I can still remember just the way you taste Staind. Break the Cycle. It's Been Awhile.
  14. Brock Osweiler <= Eason < Jeff George Closest to Osweiler, not as good as Jeff George. Hard to say at this point, but honestly, I don't see Eason beating out Chad Kelly (if Kelly is given a chance with the Colts in 2020).
