wth are they doing? this is insane. God, I'm so happy we didn't get Gruden ... 

 

I don't understand what's wrong with this deal. Great LT hits the market, he's going to reset the market.

He has injury concerns yea, but when healthy hes a very good cover corner

Verrett has been San Diego’s slot nickel corner.  He’s small...  5’9” and about 185 or so.

 

And we have Kenny Moore. 

 

Its also not clear how much all those injuries have taken out of JV. 

 

Just some food for thought...

I dont know but I was thinking the same thing. Swinging for the fences in a hurry it looks like

Got it. I get that, just a matter of whether he's actually good, not necessarily the investment in a LT.

I guess that's the OL market now. Though I never understood why SF traded him to move up a couple rounds in the draft. Seems like the type you would keep when you just got a shiny new franchise QB.

 

NE yet again scores a 3rd round comp pick. They moved back 50-60 spots from the end of the 3rd round...got Brown for a season to be their starting LT (and won the Super Bowl)...and now will collect a 3rd round comp pick. It's like these other teams want NE to win every year.

 

And there are so many Colts fans that don't want Ballard to trade picks.

Yeah... it's weird. LTs will get paid, but IMO they sold a MUCH better offensive lineman in Osemele for peanuts and paid Brown like he's a top 3 OT in the league... he's not... he's not close to being there.

They didn’t announce it.

 

Odds are this comes from the player’s agent.   He’s not obligated to keep it secret.   He wants the news out there.

There is also the question of Talent vs Scheme/Coaching

 

   Obviously Gruden thinks his scheme and OL coaches will mesh better than BB

Rumors that the Texans offered the Honey Badger a multi-year deal at $9.5M a year and he decided to test free agency instead since he believe he is worth more.

 

Going to be interesting to see how this Safety market shakes out and who the Colts end up with .

I got a chuckle at this.

1. Get a new good LT

2. Get a new good LG

3. Get a new good C

4. Get a new good RG

5. Get a new good RT

6. Build a new stadium that is not owned by TY Hilton

7. Try not to call TY Hilton a clown, a scrub or anything of the sort the week before the games.

The raiders are crazy. They are just throwing cash everywhere. They have three 1st rounders they need to build the team with the draft. They are trying to buy a SB.

    • Not a FA as yet even, and then it would be a post in the FA section. Locking for now.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.
