Heyward-Bey and Hilton need to learn how to catch the ball on a regular basis!! Also, our LB corps are BAD!! Especially Angerer!! He blocks himself better then any O-lineman or Rb ever could. THe only tackles he makes is falling on the pile!! Trade for Paul Posluszny or Shawn Lee.... Navro Bowman too! 

Paul Posluszny!!

Trading for Davis would be a horrible idea.

Care to elaborate? Fred Davis in 2011 and 2012 was one of the best TEs in football before his injury. We're talking 1 year ago, not 4 or 5, he was playing at an extremely high level. I find it hard to believe he's lost it all and we're talking a late round pick, none of that "mortgaging the future" crap people love to throw around.

I just don't see the value in Fred Davis. Once DA comes back he's disposable...

You do realize Dwayne Allen is out for the year, correct? You do realize the Colts could use a receiving threat this year, correct? Fred Davis would give us that receiving threat for as cheap as a 6th or 7th rounder. Do you really want to hold on to late round picks so badly that you'd give up a chance to improve this team now, when we are legitimate Super Bowl contenders?

I predict a list of guys who were drafted in the 7th round and turned out to be really good coming your way. For the record I agree with you.

Scheffler is better and a FA.

Scheffler is better and a FA.

So basically you're saying "what have you done for me lately, Fred Davis?" If we get 70% of the Fred Davis from 2011/2012, he's better than Scheffler. Also, Fred Davis' is younger and his ceiling is much higher than Scheffler's (as we've seen).

So can we just chalk up your proclamation of the trade idea being "horrible" as hyperbole?

Nope, giving up even a late round pick for a one dimensional TE that has been benched for a rookie is a horrible idea.

    • CB and DE, not good.   Ballard is a top 5 GM for sure, but those positions have been a issue at draft, and we're trying to solve by FA the last 2 years
    • With Jenkins and Nelson on the left side... no one...zing. Houston, Turay, maybe another FA
    • You're reaching here. NFL.com has always done tiers or buckets. NZ graded him the same as as a bunch of other guys at 6.2 which is "Good backup who could become starter".  Not 6.21, not 6.19... 6.2, the same as 30+ other guys.  You call them evaluators. They are talking heads. And as I mentioned, Ballard said he doesn't care what those guys think. It's his board. He missed, plain and simple.  He was cut because he had starter money. We picked him up on the rebound for cheap as a backup. Good signing for depth, but it's not genius.  At worst he would have been CB2. Again, not genius. It worked out. He was a past pro-bowler for goodness sakes. Good signing on the cheap, and worked out well for our zone. Nobody is saying everyone bats 1000. My only comment was he hasn't been good at CBs in the draft. You then proceeded to drive it off a cliff. 
    • I think there's a good chance Ballard will trade back, again, but doubt it would be for 2 OT's. And just want to say to everyone there are other positions on team besides LT & DE. And the other positions are also needs as well.
