  1. I really hope Eason mentally advanced because I guarantee he is going to start at least 1 regular season game (unless Ehlringer is lights out pre season). Wentz is very much like Luck and is going to extend plays but also take hits. He doesn’t start full seasons. OL upgrade? Yes but that wont guarantee health. Hopefully if Eason has to start its not early in the year.
  2. Hey everyone! Been a long time since I’ve posted. But there’s a lot of excitement for this upcoming season. One thing people have been discussing a lot of the offensive line, especially the situation with Fisher and the first 5 weeks of the season if he is not healthy. Before I get started, its all a moot point if Fish is just healthy week one. And it might be a bit of a Madden dream scenario but bear with me because I do think it has merit. I think we can all agree if Fish is out the first 5 weeks, its gonna be tough with a new QB leading our team. We need to think about David DeCastro. You are probably saying well he is a RG how will he help out LT situation. I’ll tell you…. Quentin Nelson. A lot of people want to see it. No one really wants it to be permanent because of his fierce nature vs putting him in pass block stances. But if Fish is not available, we absolutely need to think about signing DeCastro. Play Glowinkski at LG with Nelson at LT first 6 weeks if we need to put Fish on PUP. Now yes, I realize DeCastro may need PUP himself. Makes me wish we would have looked at Turner on a one year deal. But I think we can all agree on this: if Fish is out, I’d much rather try Nelson at LT for 5 or 6 weeks than put Tevi on an island. People will get a little larger sample size for Nelson at LT too. When Fish gets healthy, whomever is playing better between DeCastro/Glow gets the start. If future injuries happen, you have the versatility of OL lineups. I really think if we have the cap space, use it. Wentz will need the time and protection. Just my thoughts, thanks for reading.
  3. Robinson has a future. I dont think he's going to be a pro bowl player. He might end up being a de facto starter because of injuries and produce for a couple year stretch. But thats pretty good value for his pick.
  4. It's not about pre-season wins. It's about the overall health of this team. I want you to take me serious when I ask this question. If Luck wasn't here & say the Colts had Stafford where are we as a Franchise? Are we still in the same spot? You are right Grigson has made the right moves resigning players to this team. When it comes to bringing in outside investments though, you're saying he should get props for signing league average guys (excluding Gore/Johnson). Those signings are even debatable money/length wise especially AJ considering injuries & Gore's age but it was a package deal. Grigson has had way too many swing & misses. At what point does it become habit/history? We have to put a better product out there while we have Luck.
  5. If JJ Watt gets hurt the Texans are a below 500 team.
  6. I know right I'm just trying to throw him a bone. For as much as Grigson has supposedly done to help us rebuild, he has also equally set us back by doing things such as: TRich, Werner, Landry, Godser, Thomas, $ to Hasselbeck, $ to Toler.
  7. I messed up earlier I should correct myself. Grigson, besides picking Luck, has made four good moves not two as previously stated. In addition to trading for Vontae & picking TY, Grigson has signed surprise Mike Adams & DQwell Jackson. I can admit when im wrong
  8. No other GM got to pick Andrew Luck either bud. You keep acting like Grigson did all this. Grigson rides the coat tails of Andrew Luck. Get a clue.
  9. It had names yes. But we also used guys a lot like Bullitt, Fletcher, Klecko, the horrible RBs like Mungro or Ricky Williams. Some of the old small LBs. But they made it work. We had names on offense. Then Mathis, Freeney, Sanders.
  10. It's not hard to pick Andrew Luck & win 6 times in the AFC south. Sorry but be realistic.
  11. I brought this up w/ friends the other day about Grigson: If you are a new leader, part of your job is to analyze what went wrong before, what didnt work. So what were those things in the Polian era: Couldnt run the ball, couldn't play top end defense, no backup QB, bad OL ,the surrounding talent outside the QB was subpar because of cap issues. I'm pretty sure all Grigson has done is turnover the roster & give us the exact same problems 4 years later.
  12. The thing is though a receiving TE would probably be a better fit. Greg Olson's pass catching would help more than Allen's blocking w/ the group of WR we have. I just wish Fleener could catch or develop. Looks clear to me he's maxed out his ability.
