If the Colts are having trouble reaching the 89% mark, I will happily sacrifice myself and sign a 1 year, $XX mil deal to help them out.  

It looks like Funchess turned down a two year deal worth more money because he wanted to play for the colts. We need that kind of player.

The big thing that has bothered me about the past few days is the fact that most of these contracts have come without the players and staff sitting down and having a formal "interview".  Yes, it is a

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.

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.

Wronnnnng. Not our second best defensive guy

I put him ahead of hooker. I think he has made more big plays.  IF he has another big season next year he could make the pro bowl. He will make some coin.

    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...
