Would you do this trade for J.J. Watt?

Recommended Posts

This is purely a hypothetical situation and there are no rumors or anything, but would you trade Hilton, Vontae and Costanzo for J.J. Watt if the Texans offered? We would be trading a ton of talent, but we'd get arguably the best player in the NFL on our team. They'd be getting two elite players and a near elite player all at positions of need.

No,  and I'm a huge JJ Watt admirer.

 

But that's entirely WAY too much.   That's not even a tough decision for me to make.

Fair enough, I like him as well. What would you trade for him out of curiosity?

Vontae is arguably the best CB in the game Idc what the media thinks if Sherman can be considered the best then Vontae can too

Watt is a generational talent, not just the best defender in the game now, but probably the best defender of the last 20 years. AC, Hilton and Davis are really good to great, but ultimately replaceable. 

 

Also, Watt costs just under $17m/year. If AC gets $7m/year, Hilton gets $8m/year (both conservative estimates, by the way), and you add Davis' $9m/year, you're actually saving $7m/year.

I was thinking something similar to the bolded, this is why I created the thread. It will be a scenario that never happens, but It makes you think how good our top players are (besides Luck), and would you trade them for, what you said and I agree, is a generational talent. I would do it with FA and the draft coming up, we could get someone like Cobb to replace Hilton in this scenario if we needed too and draft a OT in the first two rounds to replace Constanzo. You just don't get many opportunities to get someone like J.J. Watt ever, and I think this would be worth it. 

 

I will say though, I'm glad that the majority wouldn't do it in a way, it shows the respect we have for our elite players and how valued they are among the Colts community.

So add a new LT and a new CB. That's not that hard to do. It's even easier to find a WR who can produce. Maybe they aren't as good as the three guys we'd be giving up, at least not right away, but the cost would be more than offset by having Watt. Not saying it wouldn't hurt, but for Watt, it would be worth it.

Davis had one elite year. Not to downplay him, I think he's great. I'd hate to lose him; I'd hate to lose any of them. I'm a HUGE Hilton fan, and have been since before we drafted him. But I'd get over it if it meant getting JJ Watt. 

 

Also, let's be straight, the Texans wouldn't consider this move, for all the reasons I've stated.

 

Outside of QBs, it's hard to find any truly untouchable players in the league. Especially if they don't touch the ball. Watt is one. Maybe the only one right now. Honorable mention to Gronkowski.

No. Mainly because I wouldn't want to set the offensive line back by trading Castonzo

I see all the responses in this thread are no from the Colts' perspective.  

 

I look at it from the other angle - I don't see anyway that Houston would make this trade.

Yeah....as good a CB as Vontae is, that trade blows a serious hole in Houston's defense.

 

With injury/performance question marks still surrounding Jadeveon Clowney....their Front 7 turns completely ordinary without Watt.

It was a tough decision for me...But we have a bad O Line as is from Center to RT......Take away Castonzo and who wants to be the one to buy Lucks body bag? We also saw what we were minus Davis in the secondary.......I don't want to see that again if it can be helped for the forseeable future....Not to mention the way our secondary is without Davis there is no way Watt puts up those numbers here, He would not have the time to get to the QB because we would have wr's open all over the place(That's been proven already)......Hiltons a great player but replaceable.....But at the same point that's a hell of a lot of speed and talent to replace

 

That would set us back at least a year or two giving up all that

No way I do this trade. Although watt is probably the best defensive player in the league, Davis is near the top at CB and Castonzo is very reliable and should be considered for the pro bowl. Hilton is a great young weapon who already has chemistry with luck. Without Castonzo our OL is a mess and without Davis our secondary is a mess.

They need TE so I'd offer up Fleener and this years 1st and 2nd round picks. Not that they'd do that trade but it avoids us giving up our great young players.

The 29th pick of the 1st and 2nd round plus a solid TE for a guy that has a chance to be the greatest defensive player ever? At least try to make it tempting for the texans.

Part of me would love JJ Watt playing for the Colts because I loved him playing for the WI Badgers. The dude can do everything shed double teams, knock down opposing QB passes, generate turnovers into TDs, & he's a very potent TE on offense as well. In addition, JJ's never gonna get arrested & embarrass your franchise either. 

 

Losing Vontae & Hilton comes at too steep a price tag though. Besides, the 2 things that bond my buddy QuizBoy & I together are our love of JJ & our contempt for the Dallas Cowboys. I don't wanna lose that connection man. LOL!

I agree with this statement. There were two things that I did too make this as close of a trade as possible to where it could be realistic. 1.) Trade elite players for Watt. 2.) Trade players at positions of need for Watt. The question of the trade I asked is a loaded question because there are arguments that you could make for both sides to accept the trade or not. I think it could work or backfire, depending on the team. There was a post saying that the trade could set the Colts back a year, and that's possible. It could also push them towards a SB if we were to use FA and the draft correctly this year. It's a quality vs quantity trade, but just a fun scenario all in all. I do think a few Texans fans would take this trade based on talent and need, but more would probably pass.

No, as much as I love JJ Watt, that's too much. I'd trade a couple of 1st round picks for him. Maybe a few extras in as well.

 

Id be open to any trade that didn't involve Luck, TY or Vontae.

Fair question....   and I'm NOT ignoring you....

 

I just haven't come up with a fair trade for both sides.    This one is seriously difficult!

    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway. 
    • Humility is on the path to enlightenment...   Some-ish like that...   I try and remind myself daily lol
    • Ha, ha, ha.....whatever psyche job Reich wants to use. Brissett must be mentally fragile.
