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 think it's more about when to use Hines, or when not too. He has great AVGs on 1st and 2nd down, and doesn't need a FB. He just IMO shouldn't be used in 3rd or 4th and short.   And a FB is always nice in short situations regardless of RB, so IMO it's not really about Hines either.   IIRC MAC got really good run blocking grades. I remember October articles when he was grading out top of the NFL in run blocking. I don't have a PFF sub to see the end of year breakout, but I'm going to bet he ended the year at least top 10 in the category.   As far as FB is concerned in general, I think there are things you can do in short yardage situations that reduce the need for a FB... Now that we don't have Rivers, teams really can't key on things like they did last year anyway. And in short or goal line, we can line up wide, instead of tight like last year. Just lining up wide makes it easier, and you can still use a TE if you want.
    • Well if you want to use a guy like Hines on the rush, you've got to use either a fullback or a 2 TE set, and as much as I like Mac, Mac and Doyle both grade out only somewhat above average as run blockers, and Doyle's been showing his age on the injury front recently so a specialist would be helpful.  If we don't have one, then we need to manage our expectations of little gap shooting RBs like Hines appropriately.
    • Happy Mother's day to all !!! If you are blessed to have your mom still around, you truly are blessed   
    • Godfather 1 and 2 are obviously incredible and probably my favorite movies of all time, just thought his role was too limited and perhaps surrounded by a bunch of other great actors. Kind of like AN. I just thought his AN role and character was off the charts.    When you Pacino, DeNiro, Caan, Duvall, Keaton, Shire, Cazale, plus all the other great but less known actors, it's a bit hard to focus on one guy. Clearly Pacino was the lead throughout the movies, but there was so much greatness all around. AN had great actors too, but just not on the same level. Brando just stood out more to me I guess. My fav Sheen movie too.
    • Hope NFL Shop adds Dayo’s jersey soon.. not on the drop down list yet.   He’ll be the Leonard of this draft, where other teams fans question the pick and then wish they would have grabbed him.   *** Disregard - you can custom one, ORdered!! ***
