I don't care what they do, I just hope it doesn't involve giving more future draft picks away.

I would gladly give away a draft pick for Calais Campbell

Washington a good/ will be great young player who is on a rookie deal still and would be great to have in the middle of the defense.

 

Absolutely, but I am trying to figure out who/what we would need to trade to get him.

I doubt that if we are "past the cap cash-wise" that we will be adding a contract like Fitz's... I'm with warriors.. don't think that this tweet has anything to do with Arizona... if we aren't trying to sign a WR (who? and can we afford it?) I think we are extending somebody (probably Davis) in a back-loaded way that frees up a little bit of space for draftees to be signed.... just a guess, though...

I want to stress here I don't speak Irsayese but I think him saying they want this player bad means the guy isn't already on the roster. 

 

From what I saw on twitter when you take out money for rookies and players to sign for guys going on IR we have about five million left to spend on free agents this year.  That was before we released Zibs too.

 

Also as we have seen this off-season what we as fans want and think might be a guy the Colts want bad doesn't always mean it's really what the Colts are up too.  It could be they are after something like a back up QB or another Guard (although I expect McGlynn, Ijalana, Olsen, Reitz, and Anderson to battle it out in camp for the other starting guard spot).

if its a trade, I think we will be giving up picks... that makes me uneasy...

if it is for a young player who would be like a DP I would be fine

How do you know?  I don't mean that in a snarky way but if you are that sure of it I just think us here would appreciate it if you shared how you know?

Hey, look on the bright side. The last time Irsay did something like this we hauled in Vontae. I'm sure it will be something of solid value. I can't wait!

I don't see any reason for Colts to do something stupid, not after the reserved way they acted in FA so far. It's probably just Irsay creating some hype to engage the fans. I didn't think trading for Vontae Davis last year warranted the hype he generated on Twitter. I like that they are aggressive and try to improve the team and hope to win while Luck and the talented young players they drafted last year are still under their rookie contracts.

Irsay may tweet like a drunk 4 year old, but I'm glad we have an owner who keeps the fans up to speed on what the front office is working on. Even if it means we have spend a day deciphering it.

Right, I don't think I said they couldn't.  I was just giving example of another position they could be going after other than WR based on Irsay's tweet.

Wasn't there a rumor that we rejected a trade a few days ago? Is it possible we are the ones acquiring draft picks? Don't know who would have any value to any other team.

You don't think it warranted the hype? Powers goes down, & we get Vontae. I really don't think we would've been 11-5 if Vaughn was our #1 CB. So I believe it did match the hype

Yeah, I could see that. Especially if we are really wanting to draft Elam. The Fitz talk is beyond nonsense.

I don't know at all, i apologize for my wording... I just meant that its hard for me to imagine what players we might be trading away... our roster has more unfulfilled potential guys than trade bait guys. Most of their contracts are very reasonable... maybe Mathis, Redding, or Angerer are possibilities... beats me

 

I see how the way I said that made it look like I thought I knew... sry.. I honestly have no clue...

Bethea did just now start tweeting a lot all of a sudden! The mystery deepens! 

Although this probably has nothing to do with anything

If I'm not mistaken (Holden89 or FX will correct me if I'm wrong) Matt Elam plays SS. If we trade Bethea & draft Elam, we'll have 2 SS's in Landry & Elam. Which one is gonna play FS?

You are correct on that. I wasn't thinking straight.

    • LOL. His first year with Pagano, and Grigson's roster. He turned it over completely in 3 offseasons. His drafting has been stellar. His free agent pickups have been safe and solid. He had a slipup with the coaching fiasco, but recovered with what will go down as the best move of his career in hiring Reich and keeping Eberflus as DC.    I think 100% that this roster could win many games with Brissett under center which is far different from the first time he was put out there with a crap o-line and bad coaching staff. I also think this front office could make the necessary moves to find a franchise qb. I think Luck is what is necessary to get this team to several superbowls, but I don't think he is the end all. Bill Bellichick thinks the same about Tom Brady. He will be around well after Brady's gone and still winning a lot of football games.
    • we would obviously have another gm.  you guys are asking a hypothetical on what  we would do if ballard was gone along with everyone he brought in, and i cant assume we have decent players in their place?   i think ballard would have a hard time replacing luck if he were the one to leave, and ballards one year without luck didnt go well   luck was able to carry bad teams, coaching and front offices to the playoffs 
    • i agree, Ben was elite in his prime and could have gone far with this roster built to pass to lots of different receivers    i dont think we have enough running game or defense to win one with RW.  Foles had one of the most well rounded teams in recent memory when he won.  i think he would be a good fit here though, especially with Reich    its probably a borderline playoff team with eli, the division would close 
    • I'm saying a draft pick like the players given in my examples when they won their SB. Not currently today. I think Ballard could build an elite team around a drafted QB of their caliber, and that's why I lean towards Ballard in this debate. I believe we can win a SB with an average to above-average QB more likely than Luck carrying a mediocre team to a SB win.
    • "Luck and co."   What company are you referring to? The company that Ballard turned over and built in three offseasons? Yeah they'd do just fine if another gm came in and rode their coattails. Are you referring to the coaching staff as well? Yeah... Ballard hired them too.  The scouting department? Yeah, Ed Dodds, Rex Hogan, Brian Decked... all Ballard guys.    Sorry, but Luck failed to win big games with the last GM. If he can win with this one, it's because Ballard put together an actual team, front office and coaching staff to win.
