Everything I have read says he is a very hard worker. One story talked about him spending hours with the RB watching film. If he is that hard of a worker and proves to have a high football IQ I don’t see how he can be a bust with Reich. He is very self aware and knows he needs to balance the taking risks and not being stupid. Apparently he wowed the dolphins in his interview. I would be happy with him or Herbert. Doesn’t really matter. We just need to try and see if we can get one of them if the colts think they can be the guy.
The value chart kind of goes out the window when u r trading up into the top 10 or 5. Teams know u r going after a qb and can charge u more. I believe that if they moved up to say #7, they would b giving up next years #1 and then some. Look what we charged the Jets and they only moved up 3 spots. Every one gave Ballard praise for that trade. Now he is the one who may have to pay up big time and let's see how Colt fans react when they see the total.
Great job. I agree with a lot of people that getting AC to resign is the key. We can afford to pay him as one of the top LT's like we say he is. I'm hoping we get it done this week. I personally think we will need to spend more to keep Funchess. We wanted to give him a long term deal last year but he wanted the one year prove it deal. Then the freak injury derailed his and our plans. And now we don't have Luck. I think he will be highly sought after by a number of contenders. I hope he stays but I think Ballard might have his work cut out for him. We can only hope.
