Who cares?  There is zero downside. If you can't pay him you get a nice comp pick.

because he plays air guitar or does the shark? who cares. its a game

 

No. And you know that's not it. Watch again. 

Watch how he interacts with his teammates (he is borderline ignoring Andrew in some situations), and just his body language in general. Should tell you everything. And really, that's merely part of the reason to find an upgrade as explained in previous post.

as long as he stays out of trouble and makes plays, what else matters?

Sounds like he is visiting the Raiders next. I think its time to move on to whatever plan B is.

Bad news for us. Raiders can afford him and their a team on the rise. They do have to resign Carr and mack next season though

It says his next stop is "expected" to be the Raiders.  I haven't seen any confirmation on a visit.

I think all the teams he visited could afford him or they would not have brought him in.  So far no one has met his demands which appear to be out of line with his perceived value by all of the teams he visited.  Someone needs to do some soul searching.

"

  • Jason La Canfora reports that this was Poe’s last scheduled visit and he now plans to fly back home and sort through his options."

Good news. So we probably have a 1 in 4 chance of getting him? 25% is better than him leaving and not signing originally. Lets hope his former relationship with Ballard sways him our way to join the Colts.

He has current and former Colts players I think I read texting and tweeting him to sign with us. Of course, though, all of these teams are probably doing this. Just hope it's enough for us to get him.

Either way I think CB knows him best and will do what's best for the franchise.  If it isn't him hopefully they'll make a run at Hankins.

 

What a logical and reasonable approach. I like it. :)

"For the first time in his career he did not register a sack and finished with just 38 total tackles. The least amount since his rookie season. Since his back surgery in 2015, Poe has registered just 2.5 sacks."

 

I was aware of the back issues and the fact that his year wasn't that great but I did not realize how bad it was. Makes me second guess the desire for Poe.

His job isn't to get sacks. He'd be an amazing addition to the defense, don't overthink it.

My feeling is if we get him, fine, if not, fine.  Offenses just run side to side plays to wear those big guys out anyway. 

 

If the money is equal, and his next priority is a ring then Atlanta has to be the favorite.  If he's looking for a place to live where a young rich guy can have a lot of fun, Miami and then Atlanta have to be the favorites.

 

But the money is probably not equal.

As opposed to . . . Nothing!  There is no downside to signing someone that can help - even for a year - outside of cap space which isn't an issue. Not being able to sign all your free agents is a GOOD thing.  And why would we sign a bunch of other free agents if we can't afford to re-sign him?

Seems like a pretty low ball offer. Surprised he accepted that

 

The funny thing is Bennie got the same contract from KC.  Wonder if KC ever wanted to bring him back or just moved on right away.

On a real note, I'm not mad we missed on him for that deal. We're not going to the Super Bowl this year, so a 1 year deal with Poe doesn't make sense for us.

 

 Exactly. Now he can prove himself one more year and we can reevaluate the situation.
 He can play for a real contender! lol

inb4 "WHY WOULDN'T BALLARD PAY 8M FOR HIM?!?@221/?"

Reportedly, the ATL deal is worth up to $10 million - $8m plus $2m in performance based incentives.  That was on the upper region of his value.  

 

Only thing we can hope for now is that he just sucks so bad for ATL that his 1year contract demands blow up in his face or that he gets injured.  Nothing serious, but just like a nagging ankle that keeps him at 85%.  lol

    • They just beat one that is sometimes in the GOAT discussion. Does thatcount?
    • I'd throw Pittsburgh in there too. 
    • The red zone % can be misleading. Looking at that, one would not expect 7-3.  I find our offensive rz % more concerning than our defensive #. However, ifYOUR offense is in rz more often than opponent, and THEIR offense is kept out of rz more than your offense, you can better afford these #s.   Concerning, yes, but i would argue, at 7-3, there is more going on than rz % by itself. 
    • ? Rivers is the QB and the leader of this team. Yes the strong point of our team is the defense but it it still the offense that scores the points to win.  I agree that no one player is responsible but his veterans leadership means more than you want to give any credit.  Just because he is not a Mahomes or a Wilson does not devalue what he is to this team.  With the help of the defense he pretty much equaled Rogers this last week.  He has already done more for this team than a lot of fans thought he would. 
    • I don’t mean to split hairs....   But while freely admitting 2020 Rivers isn’t 2010 Rivers or even 2018 Rivers, he’s certainly much better than 2019 Rivers.  He’s having a very good year, and he’s doing that without the weapons that other QB’s have.   And he’s doing it without the expected running game until this week.      2020 Rivers is also clearly better than 2019 Brissett, so I’m not ready to discount his responsibility for our current 7-3.  I agree things could still come off the rails.   I agree that the defense and ST get equal or greater credit, but still...   Rivers is driving our offensive train in a way JB could not.  So it feels that at least thru 10 weeks, at least, he’s deserving of more credit than you’re currently offering.    Did I thread that very small needle?
