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

Tampering started at noon, teams can agree to terms just not officially sign until 4pm Wednesday.

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.

    • He's certainly not irredeemable. There's just a lot more scrutiny that comes with the QB position, fair or not. You can be WR and do drugs, beat women/kids, and still get more chances. CK did none of that.   I'm pretty sure uncle Jim put a foot up his backside, and made a call to Frank. I hope that's enough (Jim's foot), and I think the Colts (and Frank) are a good spot to provide support for him. 
    • I've been touting 2020 as "the year" for a while now.  I might be a year too early, but in watching the league this year one thing has struck me:  there aren't any truly "elite" teams out there.  Yes some are better than others, but IMHO the difference between the top and the bottom isn't as great as it used to be.  The Colts are clearly among the average teams, so I think with another shrewd draft (and that Skins round 2 pick sure looks good!) and a couple of impact FA's, I think this team can contend next year.  And Mr. Brady isn't going to be around much longer either.
    • Just to bring this back to last Sunday. Reich should of given hoyer all the snaps in practice.  Because if Jacoby could of went he would of  been fine with no reps. Then we would of had two QB prepared.
    • Agree 100% on Willis from a box perspective. He'll be very good if that's where they focus him. On Okereke, he gets swallowed up easily vs the run. I just don't see that improving a lot with his build. He came from one of the best strength programs in D1, so I just think he's topped out in that space as well. I think that's why they're trying him out in the SAM space.   I think Rock will be fine. Most of his errors are "rookie" type errors you can expect being tossed into the deep end. Physically he's fine. I think the mental part will catch up.
    • That is exactly why the Colts are what they are and the Patriots are a dynasty.  That emotional attachment did not serve Irsay well during the Pagano & Griggson era...did it?   He lost a franchise quarterback as a net result of all of this misplaced attachment because stayed too long with Griggson and Pagano who could not keep Luck out of harm’s way.   Vinny is a legend who has great exploits on his resume.  We get it.  However, I’d argue that most of his greatness was earned wearing another team’s uniform...the Patriots.  He kicked them to 3 Super Bowl titles compared to one in Indy.  He made his name and reputation with the Patriots.  Sure he has played for the Colts longer but his formulative and most accomplished years were spent in New England. And still Belichick had no problem letting him walk in 2005 when he perceived it to be in the best interest of the Patriots.  If Vinatieri was stinking it up like this with the Pats this year he would surely be gone by now...and wisely so.  But Ballard, Reich and Irsay are led by the heart strings (as you imply) and as a result the team suffers on the field.  It’s a bad message sent to the rest of the team.  Certain players can under perform and be rewarded solely on the basis of who they are and what they have achieved in the past.  While others are held accountable for poor play.  It’s a double standard that eats away at that  locker room “culture” that Ballard supposedly values so much.  Well...we are no longer living in the past and the present day Adam Vinatieri is a liability on the field to this football team.  A liability that teams like the Colts choose to live with to their detriment.  That’s not admirable...it is downright foolish in my opinion.
