If we are signing Nicks I hope it's on a prove it deal.  But on a 1 year prove it deal I like the signing.  The guy has potential.  

 

That having been said I also think we should keep 6 WR's on the roster this season.

This should be in the FA section. My bad.

 

 

Not really , that's for sure Colt news. This makes a little more sense to me now. Signing Costa would be cheap and leaves plenty of room for Nicks and even a safety. Nicks will be a little more pricey as he's by far the best WR left on the board. Carolina will probably be willing to pay him fairly well. I would welcome this signing.

If I had to choose between a really good center or a veteran receiver, I'm going with the center. Settling for Costa doesn't make sense in that context, not to me.

So, the biggest reason I'm against bringing in a big time receiver like Hakeem Nicks is I feel like it might upset T.Y.

 

T.Y. might feel like management doesnt believe in him enough to let him be THE guy. Even though he has proved it for 2 years now. He might want to be featured more, but management might want to go a different route. That scares me.

 

I dont want a riff to develop between T.Y. and the team. I want him in Indy for years to come. I dont want another receiver coming in and taking a spot thats rightfully his...

Would like a 1 year, $2 million deal be possible since he's sucked it up the past couple of years?

 

I think there's no chance he'd take a deal that small.

 

More likely 1 year and 5 or 6 mill is what he's looking for.    Especially if he's turned down $4.5 Mill from Carolina as Dustin has passed along....

Not saying it would but if bringing in another WR upsets Hilton than he's not the kind of player that should be on this team.

 

Just saying, its probably upsetting when you do so well in your first year, but Management brings in DHB of all people and starts him over you. They realize he sucks, and TY Kills it. Now they are attempting to do the same thing with Nicks...

This is foolish. T.Y. is no elite receiver and he will play with whoever the Colts sign or pack his bags and go elsewhere. We need an eventual replacement for Reggie and is sure as hell isn't T.Y. He disappears way too often.

TY will be getting his. Reggie is coming back after having his ACL injured and is in the last year year of his contract. 

 

Besides, great players relish competition.

 

Just relax. You're overthinking things.

He's a dhb size that can actually catch. Sounds good to me

 

And runs much better routes. But he'll probably cost twice as much, and there are health concerns, so it's not all roses. I'm on board at the right price, but it's not quite a slam dunk, assuming he even signs...

    • Now football changes.  CB appears to be attempting to return to an 80s style of football.        Walsh West coast really with a heavier emphasis on the run,   Short stuff and crossing routes and pass catchers in the backfield.  Walsh’s teams ran a lot more than many realize likely, but compared to other teams of the era they were “pass heavy”.   this might work.  I just think the rules of today’s game make it more expedient to throw the ball.  Can’t hit the QB or the receivers.  Tight secondary reffing.   It’s kinda like baseball IMO, found out the best way to score runs was to take a lot of pitches and swing as hard as you can trying to hit everything out of the stadium like our dads told us not to.  
    • I voted Yes to all 3. It starts up front, if a team has a great O.Line even with a good QB you can win a SB. The QB has to be at least good obviously but with a great O.Line your run game is usually good as well.
    • I don’t think it’s gonna work out. It’s too much leaving not enough for other positions.  Linemen neither score nor prevent TDS.     if you have a great QB on a rookie contract, it could be ultimately successful IMO.  Otherwise I don’t see it.   I want a strong line, when you look at the list of spending, the best SB caliber teams arent on it.     TENN is not SB caliber.  They had a nice run last year but were in tenuous playoff position at the end of the year.   BUFF maybe, but they are towards the bottom of the list.  And Allen won’t be on a rookie contract much longer.   spending that much will make likely 2 things: 1.  We will be at least good offensively. 2.  We will not be a good enough team on D and at skill positions to be championship caliber.
    • I think the Fan will get indicted after looking at the video. Regarding our discussion, it depends on the situation to how I really think about this. If for some reason lets say a son and his father get into a fight. The father hits the son and a witness calls the police and the police have to do a report but the son doesn't want to press charges, IMO it should be over and done with if it was a one time thing. Who wants to press charges against their father?? A Grand Jury could though then it creates all kinds of family problems. I am surprised the Rockies fan that got punched doesn't want to pursue though, it was a stranger that hit him. 
    • I'm pleased where we are at with our cap, so kudos to our planning. Why sweat the details.  CB and Irsay will do all they can to keep as many as they can. And the established culture will always be a  competitive advantage at contract time.  I see us in position to having a o-line and ground game along the lines of the Cowboys and Emmitt.   Most of you understand what that means for time of possession and play action. If Wentz can get even close to 33-7... we can justify a very high % towards the right dominant individuals.  We would be as good as any for 3-4 years. Knock Knock
