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.

    • So true    My degree in Political Science and a lifetime around kids under 18 have taught me a lot 
    • I am one that has no problem with people using stats to help measure a player. I got my degree in Business from IUPUI and had to take rough math classes and a statistic class that was off the chart. Stats are important, I get that. All I have ever said is there are more to rating a player than stats. Leadership is gigantic, at least to me it is, that is not a stat and can't be measured. JB is a great leader. The only 2 stats some seem to keep bringing up in here to say JB struggles or is below average are YPA and total yards passing per game. Every time someone tries to come back and say well he has 15 TD's in 8 games and only 4 INT's it gets ignored by those same people. Those 2 stats are crucial to stat people. If we had a QB that threw a lot of INT's we would stink period. Also another crucial stat is red zone efficiency, JB is great in the red zone.    To me this is just a waste of a post and my last one on it because with some they ignore other facts other than YPA and total yards passing. How can anyone have a reasonable debate with someone when they ignore things like a QB's leadership, that the WR core is average at best, etc.. Even when Hilton has played this season he has been banged up for the most part.   One last thing, it would be one thing if we were losing to bring up JB's yards passing but we are winning. JB isn't costing us any games as of now. If it was costing us games I would buy into some of these posts but it's not. I was listening to the Dan Dakich show earlier and he was saying how some Colts fans do not think JB is any good. He just laughed and said it is because they want a QB that throws for 5000 yards and is flashy. I rarely agree with him but he has a good point here. Some just need to accept JB isn't Andrew Luck and we now have a run 1st offense. I have accepted it because we are winning and as a fan have to accept it because that is the hand we are dealt. The only alternative is, not to watch anymore.
    • Good tidbits. To add - We were gifted a in-the-grasp on a TD throw by Watkins. A healthy Fuller scares me. 
    • The Week 7 meeting: Colts 30 TX 23 Brissett was 26 of 39 for 326 yards passing nd 4 TDs He is 4-0 vs, TX. Hooker & Kenny Moore did not play. TX had 10 penalties for 54 yards. TX were 2 for 5 in the Red Zone. The Colts did not get one first down running the ball. Watson was 23 of 43 for 308 yards. Hopkins caught nine passes. Will Fuller left the game with an injury. What impact if any will the hammering of the Texans have on their game?  The Texans have the Patriots next.
    • We should run all over Carolina, so that's positive. Allen is so inconsistent. He's putting up plenty of yards, but he's been an INT machine at times. If he has a clean game, could be trouble. I was very surprised they beat TN, and stayed close to GB in GB.
