    • Moore doesn’t want two more unprotected  years.   He wants a new contract because in a multiyear deal the first 2-3 years are typically protected.   Protecting the last two years without adding any more years is the compromise.     Moore is getting some protection without getting more years or dollars.  But he’s getting a promise that we will revisit this in one year.   The implication is that he has to have a very good 22 season if he wants to rework his deal in terms that he wants.  The team gets this resolved for one year that doesn’t cost them a single new dollar.   This is as close to win-win as I can come up with.     I don’t know want winners and losers.   I don’t want a big shift in leverage or to have anyone feel like they didn’t get enough.   I want each side to feel like they got just enough.   I don’t see the upside of two unprotected years.  Why do that?   It would only make Moore feel disrespected.   I’m trying to lower the temperature, not to raise it.  
    • Personally I think it's just too early to say one way or another. We know that without a doubt he's capable of 1000+. That's more than good enough for me.   Both Marv and Reg had 8 years of 1000+ years. They also overlapped 8ish years IIRC, so benefitted from having someone take off the pressure/doubles. But 8 years of 1000+, in only 16 games, is pretty darn good. It's not a leap to think Pitt can't do that if he stays healthy. Not sure if Pitt will put up 1500+ years like Marv though.    I just hope Pitt either gets more work from the slot, or at minimum, gets deep seam crossers from the outside. He'll kill LBs and Ss if they allow him to do that. 
    • If you are offering him fully guaranteed money for the next two years(and if that's what he wants), you might as well give him an extra non-guaranteed year or two. But then we will know what will happen when those two guaranteed years expire... he will do another hold out. So in essence the Colts will never be able to profit from giving him more money in advance. But I guess, if he has the leverage he should use it while he has it, so  
    • But you see that's the thing. Hilton got the same treatment and it took years for us to accept T.Y as a WR1. We pigeon hole a player and act like he can't be more. I honestly believe Pitt has the potential to be up there with the Marvs and Reggies. Might sound crazy, but I think he has that kind of talent.
    • Read a few things talking about Dulin looking good this week.  He's got the speed and size traits to make a pretty decent slot if he can run routes.  One of the reports was about him catching a deep ball from Ryan, so assuming he was either on the outside (9) or running a deep slant from slot.
