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.

    • I certainly understand the Ingram intrigue but I'd have to go with Kerrigan here. His body has a lot more left in the tank than Ingram and his body is as healthy as can be due to Washington's dominant young d-line. Kerrigan could certainly give us 1-2 years of above average play! 
    • I remember it like yesterday, then read the reasons shortly after the selection, and they made sense.  Edge played at The U, which ran the stretch, and the Colts were running it as well.  Edge also had fewer miles on his legs, due to being in running back by committee for most of his career there.  Lastly, Edge was the better receiver and pass blocker.    I sometimes wonder if Ditka thought about making that insane offer to the Colts first? 
    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO. I think him scrambling will be extremely rare in the league. I just don't think he has the mobility and physical talent to do it while launching the ball downfield.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I think he can be a good productive QB in the right system(Shannahan system for example). I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him, though. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. Lance and Fields are. 
    • You may end up being right, but I hope that we add some talent here   As a HUGE Ohio State fan....  I WANT Lewis to step up....  He seemed to improve a bit, but, in my opinion there needs to be a talent influx on the DE   I have a recurring nightmare of Patrick M........ getting 30 seconds to throw...
    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
