I did not initiate this bet. And I did not even bring the bet up today.

 

How about reading what happened?

 

I am not trying to get anyone to quit this forum.

 

I want to repeat so it is very clear. I never created this bet. And I didn't even bring this up.

 

So how is it "important" for me to "win the internet", when I did not even initiate this bet, and I did not even bring it up today? And it would have been easy for me to bring up, because it is clear that I am wining the bet? Heck I wasn't even going to hold anyone accountable to the stupid bet. 

Lol, you call me a liar and the link you provided has you agreeing to exactly what I said.  This isn't a big deal, but you are extremely strange or on crack.

I'm not talking just about this specific incident, you get very combative with other posters when defending an opinion and the chest beating post you made about how right you were previously was just OTT. Everyone has different opinions, sometimes you're right, sometimes you're wrong. Life it too short to get worked up about this stuff. 

 

This is a forum for discussing football, not a textual simulation of a playground.

I never said I was always right. In fact, I actually tried to get everyone to agree to disagree earlier in the thread.I even said we will revisit this during the actual draft.  

 

Not sure why you are singling me out here.

What do you think a 40 time tests?! 

 

 

Speed. Yes that also goes into athleticism. But it actually matters for positions like RB, WR, CB, TE, Edge, And DT. It matters but it isn’t the end all be all. It’s the only applicable athletic test. In the NFL you’re not going to have to jump 10 ft forward, run around 3 cones, or jump 39” in the air (even WRs aren’t jumping that high on jump balls before you try and use that). It matters the most for TEs, CBs, WRs, and RBs.

My problem with the 40 and some of the other tests are how they are done

Just let time tell the story guys. Haven't been a member long but have been a long time reader of the forum. Time will tell. Let's see how FA goes then hope Ballard makes the right call. So many different scenarios that could play out. I can't remember a draft, that I was so excited to see due to the unknown and all the possibilities of what could happen. I'm hoping for a trade down so we can acquire more talent. Really think that's a strength of this class, it's deep with WR-TE-ol-LB talent. But I'm not going to be bitter because someone else wants Chubb,Barkley,etc. 1 week until FA lets go......

Well yes speed obviously but I'd say it only really matters for CBs/WRs and at a push TE. RBs and Edge rushers is so much more about the burst, which is why I'd be more worried about the 10 yard split. 

 

The others do all translate into the NFL, I mean vertical, never seen a jump ball? 3 cone is about quick changes in direction which is the "speed" you're more likely to see on an NFL field. Broad jump... well they were running short of events ok?

 

Are combine numbers the be all and all? Nope. Are they useful for fleshing out the whole picture on a prospect, of course they are. Use all the data available to you!

No. That is not what you said. LOL

 

You know that. You're just continuing to try to stir this up. 

 

I am going to keep saying the same thing I have said for months now. If we stay at No. 3 then Barkley is the pick. I do think we will have some GREAT opportunities to trade back and it might be too much to pass up on.

 

Agree or disagree with me all you want to. That's is how I see this playing out. And this has been my thoughts on this for about 3 months now.

This 3-Cone just changed Chubb's life. 

Well, we can see it changed your opinion. You might want to lighten up on vouching for the rest of the world.

What is different from what I said on this thread and the the deal you agreed to?  You only lose if Barkley is there at 3 and the colts pass...and I only lose if he is available at 3 and the colts select him. Everything else is a wash.

 

what am I missing?

My opinion has been the same. I never thought we were going to take Chubb at 3. I thought there was a chance we could trade back and take him, but I am doubting that more now.

The Colts trading back creates a stalemate in the bet. You said you knew nothing about that, yet it is in my response to your request for the bet.

That's not what you said earlier....

 

Question, what do you think the chances of us taking Barkley at No. 3 overall are now? :D

If you’re jumping 41” in the air as a WR , you’ve got a really bad QB. But a 3 cone is pointless when we have seen Chubb quickly chase down Lamar Jackson. It’s about the tape. 90% of the tests/drills at the combine are overrated.

You said that if we did not take Barkley then I would lose the bet. I told you that I only agreed to the bet, as long as we had a trade back clause. Because I think the chances are high that we get offered a great deal to move back. And we need help in a lot of places. 

 

If we stay and take a player then Barkley is clearly the best player available (if he is there).

It was about 3%. Now I believe it to be 3.23%. 

 

You seriously need to slow down and read. Wash = stalemate. And I said I didn't know anything about your bets with other people.

I think it will depend on the deal. 

 

I could see us getting a lot of great picks out of this from moving back. 

 

At the same time, Barkley is a game-changer. He would make an immediate difference on our team.

It is funny how people are starting to see that now. :D 

 

It was pretty clear 2 months ago, but only about 2 or 3 of us could see it. The others argued with us about this.... For days....

 

Now it is like everyone knew this all along. Well they did not know this. In fact most were against this idea and thought that drafting Barkley was a stupid thing to even consider. 

 

Now that things are getting easier to see.... People wan't to forget what they once thought they knew.

 

Some people have absolutely no stones and no integrity. 

 

 

As i said all along, I don't care what recent drafting trends have been when it comes to RBs.  I'm only looking at this current draft and our particular situation.  I'm only comparing Barkley and Chubb.  Barkley looks like a special player, Chubb does not.  I'm not passing on a special player out of some one-size fits all philosophical aversion to drafting a RB high.

 

That said, Barkley is now gone by #2  while Chubb likely drops, so it's a complete waste of energy.  Chances are neither will be a Colt.  Time to start looking elsewhere.

I did not see the wash part at first, unless you changed it after I read your response. 

 

I want to make sure I understand. Do you really think there is only a 3% chance that will get drafted in the first 3 picks? I just want to understand your logic here. :D

I agree and have said this was a possibility too. 

 

IF Barkley is on the board, and we feel we are better off taking him than moving back, then I will be total agreement with the Colts. If Ballard gets a great deal to move back, then I will be in agreement with him too.

 

However, taking Chubb over Barkley would be INSANE! This has pretty much been my stance for quite some time now.

I didn't edit anything, but let's carry on...

 

I was joking about the percentages, but I don't think Ballard will take Barkley at 3.  I could be wrong, but I don't think I am.

You know we could have saved everyone a lot of time had we just said that. 

 

I gave my opinion on us taking Barkley, and you challenged me with a bet. I really don't think you expected me to take it. :D 

 

I am more than okay with anyone having a separate opinion than mine. I enjoy it as long as we are respectful about it. 

 

In the end, the best scouts only hit on about 50%. 

 

Some players.... Like Barkley... They break the mold and are damn near can't miss. I think Barkley is as close to a can't miss running back that we are going to see.

This thread has turned to garbage 

 

Happens every time Barkley gets brought up. 

 

A lot of people are very passionate about not wanting to draft a running back at No. 3. 

 

I think he is the best running back since Edgerrin James, and would welcome him with open arms.

    • Eason is not Kelly. Because PS are so big and players can be brought up and down Eason will probably stay on the 53. 
    • We risked not resigning when we cut Chad Kelly last year.   How’d that turn out?  
    • What's also very interesting is that NO picked up 31-year old Margus Hunt. So, in effect, we swapped Hunt for Stallworth. Nothing against Hunt, but I'd say we got the better end of that 'trade' by far.
    • Should be interesting... he suited up in 14 games as an UDFA rookie in 2018 and last year he only saw action in 4 games with a lot of time on the practice squad.  That said, the Saints had a very solid defense last year.   I guess what interests me the most about this signing is that I thought our DL was one of the deepest and most versatile groups on the entire team (if not the deepest and most versatile).  I'm wondering if this means the coaches aren't seeing progress from Tyquan Lewis or not getting what they have expected out of another player(s) or if there is just something about Stallworth which they really like...  maybe his size (305 lbs makes him the 2nd heaviest guy on the DL after Grover Stewart and the only other 300+ lb'er is UDFA Chris Williams at 302).     Hopefully he works out.. now, hopefully we bring in some solid depth to the S group and OL.  
    • Luck is better than Watson Imo.  Clearly better.   luck in early to mid 30s with this line and running game would be phenomenal imo.  Watson is good but he’s not on Andrews tier.   i wish luck would have showed what he could be with a competent cast around him.  Very underrated ole Andy was IMO.
