He is my dream signing in FA.

 

A lot of injuries in his career.  Expect that to improve as he gets older?

He is still only 26, and had a great year. It's a concern, but the improvements and physical profile are a nice prospect for the Colts.

One good year plus injury concerns.  This is what you avoid spending big money on in free agency.

Supposedly he's the one that got P-Rob last year, apparently meeting with Chuck is what sealed the deal.

Signing Robinson was no great thing.... he was signed to be an outside CB and he sucks at that... it was a dumb signing so yea that probabaly was all Pagano

Teams can contact players agents (not the actual players, though) and even agree to contracts and terms in principal, but they cannot put pen to paper and make it official until After Thursday Mar. 9th,  4:00 pm EST when the new NFL season officially begins.

DeMarcus Ware is interested in finishing his career with Dallas.

Yes, one great year, 11 sacks.  Until then I think he started 16 games in the previous four years and had a total of 11.5 sacks.  

 

I'm not trying to put him down, he may have finally hit the potential they saw in him. I just think it's risky to sign a guy who's known to be injury prone.

I know I told this joke before and it may have gotten lame...

 

What about signing Mario Williams, drafting Tyus Bowser, and getting Jonathan Luigs out of retirement? :)

No one's saying it was a brilliant signing, but he had other teams trying to sign him & he chose the Colts, and was quoted as saying Pagano was a big reason why. Not sure if that'll be enough to sign a guy like Hightower or Poe, but if one of those guys meets with Chuck, I like our chances.

That was because his former DC in SD was Pagano's brother, and the scheme and terminology was very similar......  not necessarily that Pagano was some excellent recruiter

No, I agree.  I really liked what he did last year.  Some people are saying it had a lot to do with the players around him and how teams had to gameplan for them first.  I haven't looked at any of his games to see how he got all those sacks.

 

My concern, as with all guys who've had injuries in the past, is how many games is he going to be on the field.

On the Colts front I've seen us linked to Paul Worrilow, Jack Spencer, DJ Fluker, and Chris Baker...no BIG names yet

 

I'd love Baker.

I would rather trade back as opposed to trading up. 

 

If we trade up for anyone, I hope it is Solomon Thomas if he falls. Ultimately, there is too much talent in this draft to trade up.

I think Solomon Thomas will probably wind up with the Jags.  I could totally see him playing in that scheme.

You never trade up for a running back, especially in this class.

If they feel the guy is talented enough I wouldn't be upset. It would also help on both sides of the football. Whatever this team decides to do I'm for it.

Class not as good as you think. Only about 5 are starters. Then you have back-ups left.

Spending a single first round pick on a RB is against my religion....spending what it would cost to move up into the top 10 of the first round (multiple first round picks) for a RB is just....ok I've always said that no one single decision is worth being fired over but this would be the exception.  If Ballard traded UP into the top 10 of the draft, giving up who knows how many draft picks to do so, only to select a RB then yes, I would immediately want him to be fired.  Especially when we're not 100% sure that the OL is set.

I agree it's overrated, but 5 starters out of one draft class is still a lot, especially seeing as about 7 others have the potential to start later down the line.

You might not trade up in the first round,  but teams will trade up to get the running back they love.

 

Teams won't take an approach that all RB's are roughly the same.    They fall in love with certain guys and make moves to get the ones they want.

plus it's one of those things to where if you can get game breaker,  you take it, no matter the position(unless you already have a game breaker at the same position.)

I don't think any of the backs this year are equal to Zeke's level, so no, I Wouldn't. trade up.

But for a RB like Zeke or a AP. yeah I WOULD,

We fired Grigson because he probably would have took a RB. We're building a damn defense. Common sense and being a Colts fan should tell you that.

I don't even know if these backs would go before Derick Henry. And he was a 2nd rounder.  They are definitely not on Zekes level.

There will be atleast 5 starters from the 2nd round alone.

    • Real NBA pundits, coaches and execs were parroting "Jump shooting teams cannot win in the NBA" and "You need low post presence to win" just like... 5-10 years ago. Data and analysis about the value of the 3 has been available for close to 20 years. You underestimate just how married people are to their old ways and how hard it is to teach the old dog new tricks, especially when this is all they've known for their whole lives and now you are telling them what they've been taught for 20-30-50 years is wrong. Some will adapt and flourish, most won't...    My favorite quote that encapsulates perfectly the situation comes from a field that is MUCH more open to new ideas than football - science. And even there, there is a long history of resistance to new ideas. Physicist Max Planck once said "Science advances one funeral at a time". What he meant was that science doesn't advance by convincing the old guard that the new ideas are correct, but by the old timers just dying out and the new generation unburdened by emotional attachments to the old stuff being allowed to just follow where the evidence points to.    BTW I do NOT think the run game is meaningless or that it doesn't have a role to play in today's game. It is extremely important in situational football, in end of game situations, in goalline and 3d and 4th and short situations, etc. I just do not think it serves anyone any good perpetuating myths about its importance for things that have been repeatedly shown to not correlate to run-game success.     
    • For those that wanted Suh, hes off the board.   https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/05/21/ndamukong-suh-expected-to-sign-with-buccaneers/
    • The problem is the secondary is really hard to watch from the angles we are getting on TV and the fans general population doesn't dissect in detail what's happening ... they just see the big plays - the interceptions, the big pass-breakups, or a big missed tackle etc... they don't see when the QB doesn't even throw the ball because of perfect coverage or threat of playmaking by players like Hooker. The real insane stat here is 1 reception per 130 snaps... that's like ... once every 2.5 games or thereabout... there is a value to what Hooker provides both as a playmaker and as a deterrent for opposing QB's even thinking about throwing deep. 
    • My gripe with Stitches view is these coaches have access to this same data that you're quoting. They have all kinds of stat men in the building with them.  I don't think they are oblivious to any of this stuff.  Then you've got actual football coaches in this forum like Coffedrinker and Princeton Tiger and very few of them really down play the importance of running the football and what it does for your passing game.  I just can't buy that all of them are just merely being stubborn and ignoring the data for age long myths.  I think there's a better reason why coaches still keep that mantra.
    • he got off to a slow start last year, but everyone had to notice his interception on eli and his solid play overall by the end of the year   fans just go by what they see, and that can change a lot week to week.
