  1. IDK, it took a miracle finish for the Ravens to beat the 0-4 Lions in week 3. It took a 4th and 19 conversion followed by a 66 yard field goal that hit the crossbar as time expired.
  2. For years I've always clicked the "Activity" link in the banner when entering the forums. This gets a nice view of all activity across all forums. I find scanning posts and navigating from this "All Activities" view very convenient.
  3. Same here. I'll go back and rewatch a condensed game to view specific players. After the Wentz trade, I went and watched the condensed games from his 2017 season with the Eagles. I skipped through the parts where the Eagles were on defense and focused on Wentz, so I was able to see all his plays in about 20 minutes per game. I'll probably watch many condensed games this season to watch all teams and especially the new young QBs. I also follow the Bears closely, so will watch full recorded broadcast game of all Colts and Bears games on game pass (no commercials and no halftime break). The one negative is not seeing the full television broadcast live, but I do enjoy listening to the radio broadcast while simultaneously watching the game cast on either NFL.com or ESPN.com. So, I'm not missing too much. Very much worth $99 for me since I'm out of market for both Colts and Bears, and enjoy watching other games where I only have to invest ~40 minutes to watch a condensed game.
  4. Wow! I must of watched this clip a dozen times. That is a great throw and an absolutely amazing catch.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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 closely. My brother never stopped being a diehard Bears fan. So, many of the over 40 year old diehard football fans that have lived in central or northern Indiana their whole live may have developed an allegiance for the Bears as the regional team shown on TV every week. The same might be true for the Bengals in SE Indiana.
  10. 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 Goff plus a 1st to unload his contract (for Stafford, Rams traded 1 1st and a 3rd, rest was to unload Goff). In this scenario, the Colts are getting Wentz plus draft capital, but the swap from #6 to #21 is too harsh, so the 2nd 1st for Ertz and to return some draft capital to the Eagles for the #6 to #21 swap. I really expect there to be 0 1st round picks involved in an eventual trade, but just making up a scenario that involves 2 1sts from the Colts here.
  11. Anybody else feel like the GIF storm has reached diminishing returns? It's kind of polluted an otherwise interesting thread.
  12. 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 could also see another OT pick still in the 3rd-5th round in the draft for depth and competition. Colts are very thin at OT.
  13. 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 will either get the remainder of his huge contract, or probably be cut by his new team after 2021 if he isn't performing at the level of his contract. This is a pure salary dump if they indeed want to unload him. The trading partner would have all the leverage. This seems like a Brock Osweiler scenario where Philly would have to offer additional draft compensation for a team to take the contract and get nothing in return.
  14. Brandon was killed in a car wreck before training camp his rookie year.
