He chose not to accept an unfair one year deal. It was his right do do so acording to the CBA, 

I get it. It was just the statement about him not being a locker room cancer, when he wasn't even in the locker room.

I am all about saving our picks and all, but I would gladly make a move for Ogbah if he cost a 5th or less.

 

He has talent, but Cleveland is selling at the right time. He is in the last year of his rookie deal and if he plays well he would be due a big payday next year. So any team acquiring him would be wise to lock him up early since I don't believe he has a 5th year option on his rookie deal since he was only a 2nd rounder.

 

Because of that I wouldn't give up too high of a pick.

I'm REALLY pumped to have Desir back. He's not a top shutdown CB by any means, but our scheme requires our corners to not only be solid in zone coverage but also sound tacklers, and Desir was one of the best tackling CBs in the league last season.

I loved Ogbah coming out of college. Id give them the comp pick

I was never really high on him. He has the physical traits, but plays really stiff.

Steelers need to rebuild.  

 

I don't think this spending spree that the Browns are on will be good for them in the long run.  I know they are everyone's favorites right now because they are "winning the offseason"  

 

But the Jags won the offseason like 3 years in a row and it got them into the playoffs once.  And the rest of the time they were terrible.  

 

Many teams loaded up in the off season before, and not done all that well. Eagles, Dolphins, etc.  The Rams did and at least made it to the Super Bowl doing it.

Agreed on the Browns.

 

As for the Jags, let me ask you. Do their failures point to the FAs they've added, or to the poor QB they had drafted? They've had some of the worst QB play and still made it to the AFC Championship game, mainly due to the addition of their FAs.

 

Bortles was hot and cold. (always hot vs. Colts though) He wasn't always stinking it up.

Didn't realize Jabrill Peppers went to New York Giants in the Beckham trade.

 

Yeah, and he was a round 1 pick too.

People need to stop with this locker room chemistry crap, because it doesn't prove anything. If it did, then why aren't we in the SB every year? Ballard needs to bring in the good players, and stop wishing these 2nd and 3rd tier players that he signs are going to get us to the SB. 

 

It's part of the mix.  Talent alone isn't any guarantee either.  What is the Steelers record vs the Patriots in the last 5 games where Ben, Brown, and Bell all played together?  0 wins, 5 losses.

 

Chemistry is the glue that binds the talent together.

Brian Decker (a Green Beret) was specifically hired for the character issues

Ballard will do as he pleases, thank you.

Well, under 45 minutes to go and it will all hit the fan again. As someone mentioned earlier, we probably won't have much going on the next day or two as far as the Colts are concerned.  We'll pick up some less expensive players and I'm sure we'll be watching for names being released from other teams so they can pay the big bucks they've promised to their free agents.

 

Ballard will create some depth and competition and then prepare for the draft, IMO.

Right, the bulk of the Colts signings will come when they can actually get guys in the building for visits.

It's actually 0 wins, 1 loss. Regular season game on Bell's rookie year. At least one of those players was missing in other meetings or got hurt very early in the game.

    • I can’t remember, at what point in that game did he lead by 10 in the second half and reel off 20+ straight passes?    At what point in any game has he ever done that? Just like the joker who claimed Peyton Manning used to do it all the time just show me one game. Just one. Surely with Tom Brady under center he abandoned the run with a lead all the time, right?   Right?   … right? Just one game. That’s all I’m asking to see. He’s coached almost 500 in his career, just remind me of one. Shouldn’t be too hard. I’ll wait. 
    • I'll be posting my 2021 colts assessment at the end of the season.  Re: offseason decisions, coping with injuries and issues during the season, the good, the bad, the ugly.  Will wait until it's all over.
    • It is not a great QB class, I feel they will go all in for DeShaun Watson with clauses in there for his legal issue repercussions. It will make them a division contender instantly.
    • Peyton, during the Marcus Pollard / Trent Dilger days, used a lot of 2 TE formations (ACE) because the OL movement started off the same way and it gave them an advantage, whether it was a run or pass play. I am all for 2 TE formations since you can also go max. protect with it if you need or based on defensive alignment, split out the TE as a flanker. The only time we would not do it is for 3 WR formations (POSSE) which includes or excludes Hines, who should be used like a slot wideout, IMO.   Typically, if teams are against the clock, they go POSSE but if they have the luxury of time or are going against a stout D-line or need extra chipping from TEs, they go ACE. I would like the Colts to go more ACE, given their strength running the ball and given that our WRs, beyond MPJ and TY aren't that capable consistently. 
    • Campbell is a weird one. I'd keep him for next year just to see if breaks out or is at least a decent WR in the final year of his contract. Cap will be tight, and he is cheap. In the limited time he's played, he has shown promise. It's literally the injuries that have destroyed his career so far.
