I love Peyton Manning, like I'd probably marry the dude, but let's face it...there were several years that he choked. For as talented as he obviously was, a fair argument can be made that he underachieved in the postseason. I'm not sure what statistics would lend to him being one of the worst ever, but I'm sure you're gonna inform me lol.

 

If you wanna talk statistics, peyton had 9 picks during our super bowl run and like 9 one and dones in the playoffs. In comparison, Luck has only gone one and done once and that was his rookie year

I guess every coaching staff in history who make lineup decisions based on work ethic and practice are wrong

 

    Here is a wrestling example 

     Oklahoma State “benched” one of their All-American Candidates for the Big 12 Championship and NCAA Tournament because he lost a Wrestle-Off

I do not necessarily feel that just that Stats are just a tiny piece of the puzzle when it comes to playing time

I’m not Geathers biggest fan but I think he’s much better than Kendall Brice. The only reason I could see there even being some debate is because of Geathers injury history.

What makes him so much better?? Have you compared the 2 statistically?

Why does everyone have a crush just because they disagree with you?

Maybe re signing him and drafting a safety and then splitting time will keep him from getting injured so much. Hecis very good when he is playing. He didn’t become captain for no reason.

Ok since you're a big stat guy, guess which safety had one of the best QB rating when thrown against? By best I mean QBs burned him.

I think when it's all said and done we will reach an agreement with Clayton and then we will draft another safety.  That safety will be used in the same way Clayton was used when he was drafted.  And then that safety will take over for him in the next season or two.

Why isn't what you're doing extremism of the opposite order?  You're getting these types of responses because that's what youre doing.

Yes....   and you’ve either looked at  the wrong stats or misinterpreted the stats...

 

But here's a question....   why is Ballard still trying to re-sign Geathers (at his price) and he let Brice go without a deal.    Ya think maybe Ballard knows something you don’t know?    Or is he a homer too?

Meanwhile the Colts have spent the entire FA period trying to resign him.  They haven't really brought in any other SS that are worth anything.  Does that mean the Colts are being silly and homerish about his value also?

Geathers has more stars and seasons played and yet his stats still arent head and shoulders better than that Brice guys face it both are JAGs

If the Colts thought Kentrell Brice was Clayton Geathers then they would have signed him.  It ain't like Brice has room to be picky.

Ballard didnt draft Geathers.   He had no ties to him other than his play on the field and his leadership off the field.   Ballard would like him back because he’s much better than you think he is.    

 

For some strange reason you think you know better than Ballard.    You don’t.  Not even close.   Sorry.

When did I say that? I even just said geathers is better hes just not as much better as you all claim. Both are middle of the pack safties JAGs. On just happens to be less of a JAG than the other.

The problem is they dont think Hes a Jag. The Colts dont try to resign Jags. See Donte Moncrief. Ballard thought he was a Jag and he let him go even though hes young.

You imply it with every post.

 

You keep saying posters here have a crush on Geathers and that he’s a JAG.   And we keep pointing out that Ballard wants to re-sign him.  Posters have pointed to his position as a captain.  You think JAGS are made captains?  

 

By the way, ESPN has him in the 60’s of their top-100 Free agents.   Again, not a JAG.

 

You seem to think you’re the only person here who understands and knows what Clayton Geathers really is.

The rest of us, including Ballard, don’t know the truth.   Only you know.   That’s not a winning argument.

I also said that if we were signing one or the other you obviously go with the one that's been here for years over the new guy. No matter how you wanna say it geathers is a middle of the pack S that's poor in coverage

And you also compared him with Brice.   Who no one else is doing.   

 

You tradh him at e Rey opportunity and then when really pressed you fallback on..    he’s a jag.   He’s ok.   He’s middle of the pack.   Etc.

 

Cant believe Ballard doesn’t have you on speed dial for your evaluations.

With the Colts being so tight lipped, where would Alvaro get such info.

An agent? Wouldn't an agent KNOW the Colts were offering such a deal?

Why do I feel Alvaro is making stuff up?

Have you seen the vitriol with which every single Packers fans talk about him? And not just like the Lions talk about Ebron's missed potential. I don't think any Colts fan has ever said anything as negative about Geathers like I have the Packers talk about Brice.

I am totally expecting this to happen if he can pass his physical and Ballard doesn't really low ball him.

Solid move for Dallas if they can do it. Quinn still has some juice left.

 

Dallas is trying to make moves lately despite their limited cap.

 

Geathers, Cobb, Berry and now Quinn all brought in for visits and consideration. Good on them if any of them result in anything.

This is the player I was really hoping the Colts would sign if he was ever released.   Still only 29.  Looks like that's not happening now.  Good for him.  I will be curious to see what the Dolphins receive in return if it happens.

Geathers sucks at pass coverage but is a great "in the box" "run stuffing" safety...and he is often injured due to his style of play. This makes him a situational player not a 3 down safety like Hooker.

 

This is probably why the negotiations are being drawn out so long, he probably wants starting safety money, Ballard knows he is situational and won't give starting money, also probably wants part of his contract to be bonus for staying healthy.

    • 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 teams like 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.
