    He's (Fields) the reason Burrows is at LSU, he had to xfer. That says alot. 


    But jmho, "Sunshine" has been NFL ready since his freshman year lol, beating Alabama in Nation Championship game. Oh and for those who didn't know, Sunshine can take off running too. See Ohio State game. 67 yard run for a TD.


    No he's not. Urabn going with Haskins over Burrow caused Burrow to transfer. Burrow played a year in LSU while Fields was a Freshmen at Georgia.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm not sure a game or two are great for evaluating a player, especially since he only played in 23 snaps vs OSU(because of the hit he had to the head... and he returned and some of those 23 snaps were after that hit and he played against possibly the best CB prospect to come into the game in years). His full body of work is more representative of what he is than his best or his worst game. 


    He didn't get hit in the head. He took a hit fell to the ground and his head barely hit the ground. He pretty much b****ed out after taking that hit. He also went out again after another hit. I'm positive the same thing happened in the LSU game as well. He got popped good a couple times and took himself out for a good handful of plays. Also, being an OSU guy for A LONG TIME, sorry Okudah isn't as good as they are making him out to be. He's literally the same player that Eli Apple was.

    So the new GN send the biggest super star on the team on a train to AZ. The media says it was over money. Living in Houston I think I smell smoke. Booger McFarlin says BOB & Hopkins did not get along. Really? The coach does not like his stats as well? BOB should be spelled with an additional O.


    Umm BOB is and has been the GM since last year..

    Again, you don't pay a guy $20 mil a year and give him 30 mins a night so he can be the league leader in blocks.  I understand his defense is elite, but that's not good enough at this level.  He needs to do more

    Actually his defense isn't really that elite.. his defensive rating is nearly identical to Sabonis'. He still can't consistently guard any of the bigs. Sabonis can at least go point for point and rebound with ANY big man in the league.

    I don’t think Jordan Love is a first round talent.  Not #13 quality. Anyone with a whopping 17 interceptions in his senior season has no business going in the 1st round...period.  Ballard says you can’t force it with QBs in the draft. Taking Love at 13 or higher would be doing just that in my opinion.  We get better value taking someone like Eason in the second and either trading back or taking the best player available on our board in the first round.  By the time the Colts first pick comes I doubt that best player available will be Love.  So don’t force it.


    Matt Ryan threw 19 picks his senior year at BC and went #3 overall..

    I believe a team can release a player any time it wants even if they are a pending FA.  This would give them an early advantage over other pending FAs.  If they don't release them then they have to wait for FA to start.  Teams have done this in the past.  Usually as a courtesy to a long tenured player who they no longer want to resign.

    If a team releases him before that March date he can sign with anyone.  For instance Greg Olson has already visited three teams because the panthers released him. He is free to sign with any team.


    For the people in the back as well, LA has nothing left contractually with him. He is no longer apart of the organization, so there is no "releasing" him, he's already listed as a FA. Olsen is irrelevant because he was released while under contract. AGAIN, FA's can't be communicated with until the start of the new league year. 


    Come on guys.. this stuff has been talked about endlessly on here and is easy to look up as well.

    No.  I don't believe so. They could give him a head start by releasing him now but I have read nothing indicating they have.  After 16 years you would think they would do that for him.  I'm surprised the Chargers are handling him this way.  Not a good look for them.  


    His contract ended at the end of this past season. This has nothing to do with LA, and due to league rules, he nor any other FA can do anything until the beginning of the new league year.

    They just drafted Taven Bryan in the 1st round in 2018, and they still have Marcell Dareus. I think DE will be a bigger need for them if they lose Ngakoue. 


    Marcell Dareus is all but gone. They can cut him and save 20M this year, which can go to Ngakoue. Bryan isn't good enough to keep Jax from drafting Brown. They still have Josh Allen and Calais Campbell, and I doubt they let Ngakoue walk for nothing. The have some fat (DJ Hayden, Marquise Lee, Foles - if they can get someone on board to trade for him) on that team they can cut to create cap space.

    I've spoken about Fromm before. The things he excels at are traits all great QBs have. The greatest QBs didn't necessarily have 'arm talent'. Certainly not the guys in Indy.


    Fromm's combine and workouts will be telling. If he does what Luck did during his workouts (remember the 70yd throw?) then I think he'd be a better investment in the 2nd round (paired with a WR in the 1st) than say Love at 13.


    Those "other" QB's could make the throws on both sides of the field and up the field without much issue. As I stated in the post you quoted, go and look at Fromm's passing charts from 2018, which is his best year. His play dropped off bad this past year. He's bad throwing to his left, and anything longer than 15 yards, his %'s drop tremendously. That's with playing with multiple 5-star guys and one of the best OL's in college football. I don't think his football IQ is that great, nor is his attributes as a passer, or Kirby would have tailored the offense more to him instead of being more run oriented. Again, if Fields had stayed in Georgia, NO ONE is talking about Fromm right now. 


    I would be indifferent if the Colts grabbed him in the 3rd, but anything earlier than that, I think the pick could have been used for much better value. I would be fine if he happened to drop to the 4th and the Colts snagged him then, but I'm pretty sure someone will take him before then.

    Joe Burrow is one of the reasons why I have high hopes for Fromm.  Scouting reports on Burrow last year questioned his arm strength and he worked with a former NFL QB coach (I will try to find the article or podcast where I got that information) and worked on his throwing mechanics and now it's no longer a question.


    His mechanics weren't that bad. Having watched some of his limited time at OSU his Sophomore year, he didn't look to be far off. If he had gotten the nod over Haskins his Junior year he would have been fine. Ryan Day would have done for him that he did for Haskins.


    The HUGE difference from Joe's junior tosenior year was the overall passing scheme/offense that he was in. Orgeron's offense for Joe's first year was awful. That offense was a cluster-f... and that was with the majority of the same players he had this year.


    Insert Joe Brady, who revamped that whole LSU passing offense, and the rest is history. Sure, I believe Brady helped Joe on some of his passing mechanics, but that offense as whole, was just dismal until Brady got there last year. I'd wager, that had Brady not been on board this past year, Joe might have been slightly better than he was in 18', and Orgeron probably would have been fired by now. 


    And about Fromm, if Fields had stayed in Georgia, he's undoubtedly the starter. Look up passing charts on Fromm from 2018 (his best year). Look at how he does going to his left, and up the field 15+ yards. It's inexcusable considering the talent he had around him.

    Burrow is a 1 year starter with an average arm and limited mobility who played with 1st round receivers and an OC that went to the NFL right after.


    His arm is more than good enough, and I watched that guy outrun numerous LB's and corners. Orgeron's offense before Joe Brady was awful, so I'm not sure why you are knocking Burrow for exceeding with an NFL mind. As much as I liked watching Haskins at OSU, Burrow would have done just as well with Ryan Day, who also had time in the NFL.


    I doubt Jefferson goes first round, and it's possible Ja'Marr could go first round next year, but I don't think there is another Joe Burrow on that roster, right now, to help him replicate what he did this past year.

    I thought Turner might get traded.


    On the Fort Wayne sports radio, they were talking about hoe Dipo should have played a few games with the Pacers affiliate (mad ants) d league team before joining the Pacers.  I tend to agree.  He's shooting 18% so far and the Pacers have lost 3 in a row.  Maybe it would have been good for him to dominate an inferior league for 2-3 games.  


    With the Knicks wanting Holiday, I was hoping that the Pacers would package him and Turner for Julius Randle.. wishful thinking/dreaming haha

    Why would we draft brown and sign jones. If we get a stud DT in FA I doubt we draft one.


    tom cruise what GIF


    Considering Hunt will be gone, the Colts really only have Stewart and Autry under contract, and the Colts could do WAY BETTER than those 2. So I'm not sure how you don't think the Colts need at least 2 more guys for the interior, especially when Autry shouldn't be inside to begin with outside of obvious passing downs. 


    Side note - I don't think Jones hits FA, nor does Brown make it to 13.
