  1. It is important that you included Rochelle. He and perhaps Lewis will get snaps inside that we can hope will help that pass rush.
  2. Uh, you should watch him play. He isn't loose, and highly athletic. Going forward is what he does and his lack of athleticism/explosiveness has kept him on the bench. He better become Great with his hands!
  3. What if is such fun... Say we don't franchise tag Lewis and he gets a 4 yr $48M offer. You say Ballard will suck if he doesn't match it, and Lewis of course has to take it. Weeeee, what if!
  4. He clearly can no longer RUN with the big dogs. Ballard rcently talked about the minimum measureables he requires to make someone draftable. I do not believe Houston was close enough to those speed numbers to be able to chase around at the minimum levels that are required for this defense.
  5. I would have been disappointed if he wasn't. It would have shown a leadership issue if he wasn't invited, and a poor decision by Eason if he chose not to show. And besides, Wentz should have a reasonable limit on throws per day. This would also give him quality time on the field (sideline) to talk and Listen. Sounds like this is an Excellent opportunity to build unity, to sharpen mental and physical skills, to push the process for a good camp and pre-season. Now tell me Reggie is there!! Carson is prepping for a Fast start!!!
  6. And history shows new free agents do not play up to their immediate past levels, certainly in year one. And a high % are dumped after year two based on performance. Wash, rinse, repeat. That is why Our Own players are worth more to us. The staff KNOWS them and they are bonded.
  7. Based on very little information... You Would Have Done... That is plain fantasy of course. You have always been in a rush. I respectfully say no more.
  8. I have high hopes for Turay. At a listed 6'5" 248 he is very much like Mathis who got run over. His Strength is in any pass rush situation. Paye at a very muscley 6'2" 260+, he is more like James Harrison. I would expect him to be a much better run defender soon, very soon. They are an exciting combo IMO.
  9. They is no getting through to you on Houston that is for sure. A strange take you have on the SB where KC had stinko backups at both tackle spots and they failed miserably. Can't at all say it was the "all kinds of guys/pressure" that was why the rush worked. For me, i would have dumped Houston for this reason. He was way to exploitable covering the flats. There are of course 2-3 more understandable reasons.
  10. Couldn't we all go back and look at all the woulda coulda shoulda's? Good grief Nick, start a Topic for your kind... so we can Ignore it! BTW... we Have our Metcalf!!! Maybe even 3 of them. NO, please Don't roll out the garbage that they are not Identical to your dream child. Let's see what their combined yards and TD's are this year and next to compare them.
  11. Thanks Nanny. Wentz sure was very bight and well composed dealing with Gruden. Guess we can watch our Carson and see if he is a Monster two hand man. My hopes and expectations for this season are Sky High!
  12. Interesting question. Not until after Manning getting harrassed by Pittsburg in the playoffs at the end of his 5th season did he fully become the player we like to remember. He refined his throwing with tighter spirals and became almost unhinged in his effort to Excel in the short passing game. He demanded of himself and his receivers to be ultimately precise with the routes and timing. That is when our offense started scaring even Belichek. Chuckle! We remember that day. NCF layed it all out there what Andrew didn't have. True True True. A shame he didn't start his career with a Ballard to build him a total package like what i see coming here now, and to have a coach to give him the system to excel. Luck would still be playing and in his PRIME.
  13. The fact that Smith didn't give up a sack shows Rivers didn't have a ton of time. Rivers was firing the ball out somewhere near 2.3ish for a Reason. Kelly, Glow, nor Smith are much more than average pass blockers. They get beat.
  14. Good point. YOU could make the case that they think Eason has just as good of a chance to take us to the promised land this season, And beyond. If so, you are thinking that Eason and any cheap couple of backups would have sufficed. I like the way you are thinking Brash! chuckel!!! For the Common man, his points were not that hard to understand. Simple and rational they were, seemingly hard to go off the rails with. But then again...
  15. TY was over targeted by Luck period. Luck waited and waited for TY to get open for longer passes, many of which was throwing into double coverage resulting in too many Int.'s Luck is sitting home now with Irsays $$$ largely because of getting blown up "Nice Hit" waiting for the TY Long Ball. TY did not run that good of intermediary routes as he had trouble with skating while attempting quick cuts. I have no problem remembering them trying to use him on sweeps in years one and two and watching him slip/fall on his * when he had to make a cut. TY was/is a weapon but it was very unfortunate Luck didn't have very good accuracy inside 12 yards or so. He was late, high, and threw to the wrong shoulder over, and over, and over..... year after year after year... One year of Frank and he QUIT!!!
  16. We have good talent and prospect depth now at all positions but outside CB for 22. I say that because right now it is the position that has me rather concerned for 21. You can't project that we Won't resign any of our best players.
  17. Perhaps he also likes no state taxes. He can spend that $$$ buying plane tickets for his teammates to fly down for some work and and all that fun mentioned. Personally, i liked what Goddert was saying about Ertz.
  18. It doesn't get more simple. Ballard has said, like many many other good GM's before, if i think i can help the team be a SB contender by signing/spending, even for a knucklehead if he thinks the lockerroom is strong enough to handle it, he Would Do It. And Irsay has explained he doesn't want to live in the 8-8 zone. I LOVE the business plan they have. And some Huge $$$ will be spent the next 2 years signing players we know, we have developed. There is no better way to build a roster. You are upset they didn't blow $20M trying to win a playoff game, kinda like Mannings embarrasing 7 one and dones. 2 years of Brissett were lost causes for those that care. And last years 11-5 with a week schedule was still a surprise to Most. With us just on the cusp of being really good, with many really good young 1st contract players, and being right where we need to be for a 3-4 year run at the top, with a wad of cap space and Your ca$h in the Bank ready to spend... You see failure. That is very sad!
  19. Spending wild on FA's to take a likely 8-8 roster to maybe a couple more wins is a Losing proposition. Irsay has been kind enough to tell Colts fans that 8-8 or such mediocrity does not work for him. He wants to compete for a SB. And he and Ballard agree, Ballard has made it Perfectly for those who closely follow our Colts, that there is a time to spend to fill out the roster when we are getting Close. He made a Bold strike to get a Superior talent with Buckner, and no doubt made Frank Giddy by acquiring Wentz at this time. Irsay has tens of Million$ to finance Contracts that appeal to Agents/Players that many would have Blown on likely mediocrity. We are a lower revenue franchise and his wealth is centered on this ownership. Those $$$ matter. It's a little picture/Big picture matter.
  20. You are in a Dreamland regarding getting back any $$$ from Luck.
  21. He Knows that by drafting well, and developing our players well, of which we are doing, he is soon going to be losing Our Good players because of lack of $$$. So being penny wise and frugal with bringing other teams players here is very Smart. Unless of course it is Two of the Biggest deals in the NFL over the last 2 seasons that CB did do. Brilliant minds think alike!
  22. There is no more risk with Wentz than there was with old man Rivers. He can play, there is nothing magical about it. Gotta laugh how the Ertzites fawn over him, as there IS a fair amount of risk with him at any price. And he won't be the ONLY TE that May come available that could do some good in our O. It is all about having the tools to attack opposing D's. And we have Many already. Ertz would be a blip in an O that spreads the ball around. We ARE YOUNG and strong and CB IS Building a very solid deep roster. Some realize what that means and some are Panicking. Colts fans might as well Chill as it isn't All About this season. Not when we have so many 2nd & 3rd year players needing NFL experience and having played so few games played together.
  23. I do believe you are misinformed regarding "dormant virus". The Phizer and Moderna are Not that as i read. I know those 2 have been the primary ones used in my area. The Johnson & Johnson is that.
  24. In the early 2000's i twice got got hit really hard with the flu. One year apart. I have a slightly diminished lung function still. Yes i get the flu shot every year. If you get hit hard in the lungs the damage from covid is likely life changing. But congrats, it didn't KILL YOU! Your a 99.6% survivor though. I remember when a certain J______ said the predictions for losing 2.2M seems way off. It may turn out to be ONLY 60,000. We are much more likely on the way to a Million. One in every 330. Thining the herd!
