  1. That is over a 4 year period, this is year 3. It's not a yearly thing.
  2. I think he was giving you a Madden'ism....
  3. Houston and the Colts have said he will be a DE in the Colts system. We don't play a SAM much if at all.
  4. Who? There isn't a guy on the roster ready to do that. I'm a big advocate for Lewis eventually taking over, but why rush the process when you have a guy (Sheard) that allows those younger guys to continue to develop. Next year (2020), I fully expect Lewis and Turay to be full on contributors to the defense, but with guys like Sheard and Houston, you give them time to fully develop into NFL DE's.
  5. Huh? Who's he going to lose his snaps to? There isn't a better strong side DE on the roster, and Ray nor Lynch would change that if they were brought in either. I HIGHLY doubt Sheard loses snaps, let alone being cut.
  6. Houston is definitely a stop-gap. Does he make the team better? Obviously. However, he's not a top tier pass rusher anymore, but I'm good with that because he fills a huge hole in an area we desperately needed help at. Turay simply is not ready to be a full time starter and he's our only pure pass rusher on the team from the outside. Muhammad is ok as a rotational piece but he clearly isn't the answer either. On top of that, where the Colts are picking, we won't get a day one starter there either. I'm sure Ballard could have made it work like last year, had we not landed Houston, but now, Houston takes the pressure off these guys to try and be something they just aren't right now.
  7. His knee injury was almost 3 years ago.. In the last 2 years he's logged over 2000 snaps and performed at a high level. Your right, he technically hasn't played as a 4-3 DE but he's played with his hand in the dirt ~70% of his snaps. We just made his job easier in that he won't be asked to drop in coverage like he's used to.
  8. He's about 6th in line in who I want to see playing inside, behind Stewart, Ridgeway, Ward, Autry, Hunt, and whomever we draft. He's got a better chance of seeing time outside than he does inside. I get it, Ballard said what he did, but I don't agree with ballooning a guy who played 15-20lbs lighter in college, and trying to force him in the middle to which he played maybe 5% of time in college.
  9. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/jihad-ward-18993/ I'm not sure why he's listed as a FA and under contract on Spotrac. Looks like a mistake on their side.
  10. Interesting.. Yea if he wasn't signed he wouldn't be in the Colts complex busting holes in the wall with a medicine ball Spotrac actually shows something different than what you posted. It shows he's signed through 2019 too.
  11. He signed a 2 year deal last year with the Colts last year. I like Muhammad too... I don't see it with Lewis. I think they halt that experiment this year and get his weight back down to what he played at at OSU (260'ish) and let him take over the Sheard's strong side spot next year.
  12. Ward isn't playing outside. He played exclusively inside in the 6 games he played last year. Swap Lewis with Ward. With Hunt, Autry, and Ward, Lewis will be playing behind Sheard in my opinion.
  13. They were pushing deep into their cap and those guys (Ford, Berry, Houston) were the casualties.
  14. Houston and Sheard are more than likely going to be the starters.
  15. It's called "passive" money. He really doesn't have to "work" nor travel like he would for the ESPN gig to make the money. Ultimately my point was I doubt it's about the money for him, it's about whether he actually wants to do it, and from what I understand it's a no.
  16. Yea I heard it was around 10MIL when they talked to him last year
  17. ESPN talked to Peyton last year about the gig when Gruden left so this isn't anything new. Peyton is probably making more yearly from his business investments/royalties than what ESPN would offer him to do MNF anyway.
  18. Not going to happen. Peyton is going to be a front office guy at some point here in the near future, in my opinion.
  19. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001022821/article/chiefs-gm-salary-cap-required-proactive-changes-on-d It wasn't the scheme, it was cap space.
  20. He can play across the board. The kid was dynamite at Oklahoma.
