because we don't play him coverage. jesus chirst you guys don't get it. You want us to put geathers in deep cover 2 zone instead of playing in the box to his strength?

You know why we don't?? Because he SUCKS at it. If we could get a SS that wasnt useless in coverage he will be replaced period the end. We have to sign over the hill Safeties to play because Geathers is terrible at everything but making tackles. But I'm sure if he was the super star you think he is then Ballard would have already locked him up.

Some cool stuff here.    

Brad wells is a child with rocks for brains. How does re-signing Geathers effect hooker? They play different positions. I swear I have no clue how he has a job. Half the people on this forum are more

We signed "over the hill safeties" because we play a lot of three safety looks and we lost fairley early in the season and the only other safety on the roster was Odum. Also Ballard raved all about wanting Geathers back so I guess he doesnt suck

Cleveland fans probably have not had this much excitement in years. They will be fun to watch. 

They will quickly become annoying like all other fan bases not used to winning.  Won’t be long before they are popping off smack here.  Lol

I was interested in Tate at 2-years...  maybe 3, but that would be the Max.  At 4-years I’d be out of the discussion.   Especially at nearly 60 percent guaranteed!    Yikes!

 

It's really just a 2 yr deal, both at 11.5M per. 

 

Longer term if it doesn't come with guaranteed money (for the team, worse for the player).

The Steelers traded a player they just signed to an enormous contract.    And Brown was still such an enormous jerk that (A) the Browns still traded him despite (B) a huge dead cap salary hit and (c) getting pennies on the dollar in draft pick return.

 

If ALL THAT doesn’t tell you that the problems with Brown are far more than with just Ben Roethlisberger, then I don’t know what will?

Cut it out. It was between two individuals and one had to go. thats the bottom line. Nothing more, nothing less. I mean AB is like top 3 in the league and Ben is..

 

Mean while, How is this FA turning out for you? Is it what you expected? hearing crickets?

 

Wait the Colts phone is ringing... Darnit, it was a prank call! How many visits have they setup? As quck as they come, they quicker they leave. Im not digging that. Same was true last year.

He also raved about John Simon lmao. You are so excited about the most average players ever that's how you always are.

What was he supposed to say about simon? He was too small to play DE. I do this all the time? Name another player

You think Walker has a lockdown on his spot and a upgrade isnt needed you thought desir is the next great shut down corner and we had to get him back when we could have filled that spot pretty easily 

 

John Simon just got a new deal with NE at DE

Last I looked doesn't TY own a % of the city of Houston?

We better never let him hit FA, Hou would be all over that being as he literally owns the place. They'd probably triple our offer....:D

These dudes in Houston talk a lot of smack for a franchise that has never even made a final 4. They can't even beat us in the playoffs in a rebuild year.

That may be true but if I was a Texans fan that is exactly what I would want to hear him say.  

 

Hopefully he is more talk than substance and T.Y. continues to run wild in H-Town.

That’s one way of looking at it.

 

But if that’s the case, I suspect that was a non-starter for Ballard.

If you think the Pittsburg Steelers absorbed all those negatives just to make BR happy,  I don’t know what to tell you.

 

We’re just going to have to agree to disagree.

Going by the last 20 seasons, that is 2 decades = 1999-2018 seasons we are the 2nd best franchise out there. We have the 2nd most wins and 2nd most playoff appearances only behind the Pats and have a SB win. If the Pats fans want to talk crap to us, nothing I can say about that but when Houston fans do it, I do this = :funny:. 1 team out of 32 has us over the last 2 decades :lol:. I get in that time frame the Steelers, Giants, and Ravens fans will say they won 2 SBs but they didn't even come close to the overall wins we have had. Hell, Luck beat Houston at Houston in the playoffs in a rebuild year. Many had us pegged between 4-6 wins :funny:. So much for that stink prediction by ESPN and the NFL Channel, no wonder why Heath Evans was fired  rotflmao. That fool Elliott Harrison had us rated 32nd, how did that work out Mr genius?

Ballard hasn't signed FA to 2 year guaranteed deal so far. Though I'd assume that they've offered ones (Collins, Norwell, Jensen). But those guys were much younger than Tate.

I wonder if they promised the starting job to Bridgewater. Drew probably only has one more year. Miami must be in bad shape if a backup don’t even want to start there. He probably knows they will draft their QB so it would not be long term.

Problem is by the time Ballard gets done with this thing the Texans will have a lot more to deal with than just TY. Gonna be hard to just sit back and key on him.

In the interest of fairness I’m not sure any GM has signed anyone to a 2-year fully guaranteed contract.   It just isn’t done.   I think the Cousins deal was the first multiyear fully guaranteed deal.  

 

If im wrong I’m sure someone will come along and correct me.    As for the three top players you mentioned...  we definitely offered big, big money including plenty of guaranteed money. It just wasn’t enough.   That’s Ballard’s discipline on full display...

    • Yeah... the newer analytics, if you trust them, by companies like PFF suggest the most valuable positions are the ones most tightly linked to the passing game are the ones that are most valuable ones - meaning, on offense - QB, WR... OT(because they are the hardest OL positions, a lot of one on one pass-protection work) and on defense - CB, EDGE pass-rushers, S... DTs can be valuable too, but they need to have considerable pass-rush production and most of them don't - because the inside is clogged and players get double teamed more easily, etc. The Aaron Donalds of the world are very very rare. I wonder how Buckner grades in their WAR system. He's one of the best interior rushers in the league, but still probably doesn't rank very high when you include all the other positions on the field. I know Aaron Donald' value in their system was about the same as that of an average QB. Just an illustration of how important the QB position is - an average to below average QB gives you the same value as the best interior rusher of this generation. 
    • I would just go with some under the radar guy on a bargain contract... those seem to be the types Ballard goes for. Or someone who was released before FA starts(so it wouldn't count towards compensatory picks formula).   So... I will wait for the cuts to start and pick one of those then... 
    • If the OT class sucked i would be ok with this but it doesn't    Hope we get LT in draft
    • I'm not gonna make excuses for Wentz, but everyone leads in different ways. Peyton was demanding, while Andrew was more nonchalant and dad like. 
    • About 1 hour 21 min into this 2 former teammates of Carson talk about him (FYI, there are a few curse words throughout the podcast):  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/malcolm-jenkins-on-activism-saints-eagles-trash-talking/id1485277290?i=1000510312176   They say he's not a locker room cancer.  He's a nice guy.  He didn't have to be a leader early in Philly - Jenkins says "his rookie year, we just asked him to be a rookie QB rather than be a leader..." essentially they had enough vet leaders.  Chris Long says he never  thought of Wentz as a jerk, but his rookie year and his MVP level year, he never thought about Carson being a leader, just thought "this QB is very good" and essentially that the team of veteran guys and looking back the only thing he could think is Wentz could reach out to guys across the whole team, rather than just producing well on field... says Nick Foles not a great QB, but Foles had a magnetism about him that made him appear like the leader of that SB team when Carson went down.
