    Nelson can excel and be top 3 any spot along the line, you put him at LT your best player at the most important spot and his natural spot where he grew up playing (All American LT in high school). Smith's arms arent long enough to play LT. Smith could shift to LG and combine a super duo with nelson that teams would find almost impossible to penetrate.  You could then start Will Holden at RT and have Pinter backing up all interior along with Sam Jones.  If J.V. wants to come back he could play RT as well.

     

    We then can trade first rounder for Stafford, draft pass rusher and shut down corner with 54 and 85 overall. 118 draft O line depth and you havent broken the bank with free agent signings (I hope Rhodes returns but have no faith in Rock as a corner and Rodgers is perfect size for nickle but barring injury Moore isnt being moved anywhere, though Tell may be going back to Safety).

     

      Smith to LG is brilliant!!  The defenses would have to overload and this would create lots of opportinities.

    I have a looser definition of elite, than you.  Top 10 talent, for sure.  Plus methinks you are wrongly equating team success, or lack thereof, as being reflective of Stafford being meh.


    I was listening recently (a few weeks ago) to Aaron Rodgers on the Patty Mac show and Rodgers was saying that the public just has no clue as to just how special Stafford is.  That he can make throws that blows Rodgers mind.  That there’s maybe one guy with the arm talent of Stafford, and we know who that is.

     

    Mahomes

    Brady

    Rogers
    Wilson
    Watson
     All Elite

    Rothlesburger was through 11 games.

    Yep, if we sign him for just 10 Mill as a backup which is a 50% paycut it won't hurt us at all. He is a great backup, there are just some that hate the guy and I can't figure out why. Every team should have a great backup that can step in and win a game or 2 if needed + he is a great teammate. Some in here complain about spending money but when we don't get Free Agents the same people complain and say we aren't spending money. That is like with trying get Robinson, we have the salary cap to do so and easily but I have seen some posts saying I wouldn't give more than this or that. 

     

     Ridiculous! I would say NOBODY Hates the guy.
     Most just don't believe he is very good. And probably like me, i hope i never see him in a colts uniform again.
    I want someone who thinks faster, has better touch, and is more mobile.
    Go Jacoby! No, i mean Goooo!

    WE don't have a Keenan Allen  type of receiver.

     

     Allen is a nice talent. And Only 6'2". Rivers has enough arm to throw quicker, shorter passes on a line.
    I was impressed the last half of the season or so with the Zip and ball placement Rivers had on so many of these types of passes. Extremely catchable stuff that you could run with.
     TE's are receivers too, and i will take a stronger arm QB that can create more time to pass ASAP.

    Would you call Reggie Wayne an X receiver?

     

     

    Reggie looked putrid for 2, almost 3 seasons before he finally exploded. I say give Pitman time, because it’s too early to judge one way or the other. He could just be another guy, or he could explode into a force. Plus with the way Rivers plays, spreading it out and such, we may not truly know what we have in any of our WRs until Rivers is gone. Not saying rivers is bad or anything, he just spreads it around, ALOT

     

      Rivers HAD a history of throwing a lot of high point passes to big receivers. Where was that this season?
    I agree that Pittman needs time, and i think a guy like Stafford could take/make more time for deeper routes and 50/50 balls and bring out his best.

    Definitely!  They have already tested this move and talked about it.  It is the easiest fix and we would have the LT spot secured for a decade.  A much more important position than guard.  They are going to have to give Q a big contract regardless might as well pay him as a LT.  This is a no brainer.  Easier to replace a guard.  

     

      Not loving the idea of paying a guard $20+ M a year, so moving him makes a lot of sense.
    Aust like he did for AC, whover plays beside Nelson will look better than they are. Then again it would expose Kelly as more average. 

  7.  Went into the season saying ____ the NFL.
    But it's the COLTS! So... still not much interested while Rivers was throwing interceptions and
    Jonathon Taylor looked kinda lost.
     Yes Frank and Rivers had trouble managing a 60 minute game plan, but once Taylor got his reads down 
    i was loving me some Colts FB. A (Rock/Ugh) solid B.
     Ballard and his team can keep us competitive and that feels very good.

    I think it has to do with Rivers.  Lots of RPO shotgun set up so Phillip can scan the field immediately and release the ball as quickly as possible on short patterns, which is his forte.

     

    If you mix in an under center set up, it kind of says that any pass pattern is going to be longer because its a longer set up for the QB.  We don't use those pass patterns after a play action, so we don't set up under center much.  At least we haven't yet done so with the patterns as much.  Maybe we should, but doing so would lead to a more down the field passing game.  It might also have to do with TYs struggles and the overall talent level at WR.

     

     Excellent points Doug.
    And our pass protection is not that great this season, Rivers is just getting

    rid of the ball in 2.3 or so. Knowing that, the D can play closer to the los and that affects the run game.

    https://nesn.com/2019/08/andrew-luck-reveals-why-he-once-was-resentful-of-jacoby-brissett/
    You an administrator and you don’t know about this article? 
    “Diligent, sharp, loves football,” Luck said of Brissett, per ESPN. “I hope I can continue to support him in different ways, so thankful for our friendship. On a personal note … coming back into the building, early last year, I was very jealous and resentful of this fun, happy dude that was in my spot as a quarterback on this team. I obviously did not have any confidence in myself, either.

     

        

     Then you should remember that Luck was talking about Brissetts positive energy and Love for the game, attributes that Luck would have Liked about him, and he said was jelous of it.
     Luck said he no longer had such an attitude because of all his injuries.
     And we saw him walk away from the game physically able to play, but not mentally.
    His extended decision making time got him Maximum $$$$, he played That well!

    All this off season there were those who were talking about how bad Glow was. That he was the weakest link and needed to be replaced. And when Pinter was drafted how he could step in and take Glows spot. 

     

     Y'all are looking kind of uninformed at this point. 

     

     

     Actually, very informed, based on past performance.
    Glow graded well as we were going 1-5 2 years ago, then kinda stunk it up the rest of the season.
    And was good for about the first four games last season. Then ended up graded around 44-45 best for the season. Hopefully he has a healthy season, and a better Season than history shows to be expected.

    I'm simply asking for others who may have watched the other game highlights of his last season to give me their take on how he progressed as the season went on. I am by no means questioning his ability to keep the starting RT spot. 

     

     He grades at near an Elite level run blocker and was graded down around the 45 best pass blocker.

    What is hard to understand. He is what they thought he was when they drafted him.

    I remember when Wayne was drafted he was considered the best route runner in his class.  If Pittman can improve there we should be in a great place.  

     

     We had that dufus that came from the Canadian league i think that was about Pittman's size.
     He got a huge hopeful hype on the board.
     Reggie said he wished he had that body size.
     You can't expect Pittman to have Reggie's foot quickness.
     No, this kid is going to Take the 5 yard contact and be able to bump those little friars to create space.
    It is going to be a blast in 2021.

  13.   Considering the state of afairs outside of the virus, i sadly do not want to see what many of the players want to do on the field pre-game.
     Let them give their minds and spirits to become part of, even be Leaders for their causes. 
     Needed Change is coming, but we need a whole lot of right thinking change makers to help get it done instead of throwing bricks.
     This old fart is ready to see equality like we have never seen before.

       Hopefully our players will try to contribute towards Major changes in our society that Do need to happen ASAP. This road through this type of change will Unfortunately be very rough.
     It is just how getting through MAJOR Change works.   
      And i agree it is WAY past time. God Bless all of you, stay safe.
      

     

      The 35 second video i watched above was a very poor, and disrespecful cut of a video i just watched on Stampede Blue. DL did a great job their explaining a bad situation. Taken as he shared, some day people have to be much better than they are.
     Considering the change so far from 1865, it WILL take a prolonged, tuff, invigorated campaign, to change America.

    Just the cancellation of the season due to covid-19 concerns, but other than that, I’m sure we will stumble upon something to cause us grief. 
     

    glad everyone is signed, now, I just hope they get to play football and the season doesn’t become a season of protest and political statements. 

     

       Some sizeable protests outside the stadiums on game day should be Expected.
      Never waste an opportunity, especially in an election year.
