Right now this board reminds me of the day we drafted Reggie Wayne. 

 

I am going on record saying I love this pick. The players I wanted were gone.

I really think people are overblowing the amount of holes we had. Not a fan of the pick, but a team with soooooo many holes doesn't make the AFC title game. 

Ya but we have no NT that is any good and no SS that is any good and need a better O-line and he comes away with this.

Has anyone read this guy's scouting report yet?

It's glowing, to say the least.  Speed kills in the NFL.  Period. 

 

I've had the chance to see Dorsett in person several times and paired with Hilton, we will have no trouble whatsoever ripping the top off defenses.  Could not be more thrilled with the pick.

 

There are several picks left.

No one said Dorsett is a bad player.  He's very talented.  But we have plenty of receivers and Andrew Luck is the type of QB who can make average receivers look good.  We don't need to invest heavily on the offense, especially after we got Andre Johnson.  Our defense has plenty of holes and there was a lot of talent available when we picked to fill those holes.

Exactly. He's an exciting player, but we have huge holes elsewhere.

As for people calling for Grigs head, no doubt he had Irsay's ok with the pick. I thought we'd go D in the 1st but I was fooled. T.Y. is dominant at times so why not have a player who can duplicate his skill set.

Look at the bright side. Josh Cribbs will never field a punt for the Colts again.

I can't wait to see Grigson and Pagano rave about him.  He's a horseshoe guy, he just goes to work and chops wood, he's got wheels...they'll pretty much use every meaningless cliche possible.  Kinda like how Grigson said Werner beats people with his "want to"

nobody saying he is a bad player, we just don't need another wr.

 

We did need a WR.

 

And a good GM sticks to his board. We took the BPA available on Grigson's board. 

 

There will be a lot of people eating crow after this day. Dorsett is a baller. He averaged almost 25 yards per catch over the past few years, and he will take the top off of defenses we face this year.

just stunned...if we are trying to win a championship this year, what everyone has been talking about. Then what in the world are we doing drafting this guy, someone we don't need?????? Grigson is a *, can't draft worth a.......

 

we aren't building a monster, we are building a football team around the WR position. Welcome to watching teams run through us again next year. One of the best DT's- pass, Top rated safeties all available- pass. Top rated ILB's all available- pass. Super Bowl- pass

I agree.  We have a lot of holes to fill.  But we also have several picks left. 

 

I disagree (to an extent) that Luck can make average receivers look good.  Nicks was a huge disappointment, even with Luck throwing to him.  Same with DHB.  Many here had high expectations for both of those guys.

 

Guys were flat-out not getting open in the NE game.  Now we have 2 burners + Johnson and Moncrief.

 

Furthermore, Andre Johnson is not going to play forever.  Dorsett will come into his own by the time Johnson is gone. 

 

Adding Dorsett gives the Colts a very talented WR corps for the long term: Moncrief, Dorsett, and Hilton.

 

Dorsett and Hilton remind me of the Harrison/Wayne duo (except with more speed).

even if he turns into the next Marvin Harrison it don't mean it wasn't a stupid pick we literally have WRs falling out of our *

This is literally awful

No more excuses

I agree both grigson and pagano need to deliver on defense or be gone after this season. And how exactly are we gonna play all these weapons? Remember we still have a talented 2 TE set

No more trust Grigson

Put up or shut up. If we get run over again Grigson needs to go. The guy can identify some good players but you can't just ignore defense like he has.

We have the oldest D in the league.  Our guys are less than average against the run... how does this help? I didn't even want them to go O-Line, D, more D and then more D.  Dorsett is awesome, but why pass up all that D talent when some of those positions are thin even at the top? We're a Safety or CB injury away from giving up 35-48 points to any decent O in the league. Our D line is pitiful.  Our linebackers are ancient and can't stop the run.  Argh!

We have much greater needs than WR.  Dorsett may very well end up being a great player, but we need other positions filled.

Everyone must remember we are not in the war room and have not been privy to the info the coaches and brass have on the players

I'm privy to the fact that we couldn't stop New England from scoring on us at will with 13 men on the field the last 3 times we've met.

A WR will do little (nothing, actually) to prevent that streak from stretching.

R-E-L-A-X

Andre Johnson is old. There is a reason Houston was ok letting him go. Moncrief is still raw. Duron Carter...who cares...totally unproven.

Dorset looks like a stud. Grigs obviously felt he was by far BPA. I'm excited about this guy.

    • Actually we can if we cut Doyle. Saves 4.5 mil
    • No way have the cap room to spend on him. 
    • OK......   You've conflated two issues in this post, and moved the goal-line in the process.   Your headline says "Why does Ballard love 1-year deals"...     and you list a large bunch of players who have received one-year deals.   But you've also lumped in with them, a bunch of players who are NOT one 1-year deals.    They are on the last year of their rookie contract.    Their 4-year rookie contract.    That's entirely DIFFERENT.   You listed, Hines, Wilkins, Smith, Turay, Lewis,  Adams and Franklin.   That's 7 players who are on the last year of their 4-year rookie contract.   You even included Glowinski, who is on the last year of his 3-year deal that Ballard signed him to.    8 players.   And they've all been lumped in with guys who got 1-year deals.   The reasons for all the 1-year deals are several.    One, 1-year deals keep motivation high.   Two,  1-year deals can be done with players at a young age because you have contractual leverage, like with Pascal and MAC and Odoms.    Three,  one year deals during this current strange Covid time is because the salary cap has gone down,  no one is quite sure how much it will go up next year?   So, better to do a one-year deal and then figure things out in a year or so when we all have a better idea on what the 22 cap will be and even the 23 cap.    Four,  things are going to get complicated, financially speaking, when we sign guys like Q, Darius and Braden to their Big Deals.   Plus, by then we might be talking about extending Wentz.   All that will be a big factor on our long-term approach to the team.    
    • I think that ship has sailed.
    • That is what I mean by executing when it counts. We have a good team now but not like we had from 2003-2009 days. We make 2 or 3 mistakes now against a team that is good-great, it costs us dearly.
