Bro I don't like Ballard, and after New England played him like a fiddle, I truly believe that he's in over his head. He is in the wrong sport for how he sees the game, he has a baseball/basketball approach, but the difference is those aren't contact sports and much more violent. You can't analyse football like baseball. This draft was loaded and every player we could of hope for feel in our lap and what does this intellectual disabled fool does? He goes digging in Barrel trying to find diamonds In the rought in the freaking 2nd round. We're going 4-12 with these sucker moves

 

Ballard is rated by his peers as one of the best. You're a nobody. 

What makes you think your opinion and valuation are worth anything compared to Ballard's?

we drafted positions that we needed, what is your problem

I dont have a problem with the positions, rather the people selected. For each position there were way better options.

How did NE play Ballard like a fiddle? Because McDaniels changed his mind? That's not on Ballard. As for the draft, I get it, not everyone agrees with the picks, but this team isn't the only one passing on some of these players that some feel should have been picked. This team was left in such horrible shape. I'm going to give Ballard a chance to rebuild this shell of a franchise.

Sorry, I forgot there wasn’t a FS on our team that’s name rhymes with Halik Mooker...

I hope that these guys have the size, speed, and potential of TJ Green. I love drafting for potential. 

 

lol...I'm just playing devil's advocate. In all honesty, I'll just wait to see how it all pans out.

TJ Green was ranked something like 123 out of 124 draft eligible safeties in the country when he was drafted. The ones we are selecting have some unexplored potential, but they've also shown much more skill, production and polish than Green ever did in Clemson.

He's more of a SS than a FS.

SS is for the bigger, in the box guy, while FS is for the ball hawk who isn’t as good in the run game. I believe you have the 2 mixed up

I'm not saying he cant play the position, just that he'd probably fit SS more.

I feel he’s at his best when he’s the deep guy, but that my opinion. I won’t argue it, because I respect most people’s opinions. I can see where you’re coming from, I just don’t feel the same

I can guarantee you that you still dont have any worth compared to Ballard. You are a nobody compared to Ballard, so stop acting like your opinion is superior in any way. You have no credentials.

Malik Hooker is not a true FS?

as true as they get, hes certainly not any other position 

 

they  might have been referring to his injury and starting the season

We were VERY fortunate McDooDoo changed his mind.

he would have done nothing but hurt this organization.

dodged a major bullet there.

Giants killed this draft so far  - Saquon Barkley, Will Hernandez, Lorenzo Carter, B.J.Hill :thmup:

 

Broncos are having a great one too, IMO - Bradley Chubb, Courtland Sutton, Royce Freeman, Isaac Yiadom

I can't believe Sam Hubbard is going after Tyquan Lewis.

And that is why I said we reached.

My take on the Colts Draft so far:

*Nelson = Great pick, protect #12. IMO 2nd best player in the Draft!

*Leonard = Good pick, much needed help at the LB position. He's fast and a Good Tackler.

*Smith = Great pick, he can potentially be Good in this league. I say Great pick because it's about protecting #12.

*Turay = Don't know much about him so this is a reach at DE IMO.

*Lewis = Don't know much about him so this is a reach at DE IMO.

 

-I think our O.LIne starters will be AC = LT, Nelson = G, Kelly = C, Smith = G, not sure yet on RT? We still have Mewhort and Slausen as well, so we have depth on the O.Line now.

 

-Overall Grade so far for me is a B, because of the upgrade on O.Line and I Iike Leonard.

Let's get Day 3 going. I hope the Vikes take Maurice Hurst. This is where you take risks. We have the second pick today. 

 

:goodluck:

I don't think they should.

If they did, we couldn't.

I hate this draft for the Vikes. This guy could be good but come on.

Dang, TE Ian Thomas from IU would have looked good in the Horseshoe Blue.

We can still get Simmie Cobbs.

WOW! This is... a very interesting pick. I kind of didn't expect it because we already have Mack playing similar role, but... very very intriguing! He's more of a... wide-ranging weapon than a simple RB. He used to be a receiver... he can be moved anywhere on the LOS and he catches the ball real well.

He was the only RB I really wanted that was left. Very happy.

    • 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.
