The Herd on Colts FA

Recommended Posts

In Ballard we trust!

 

Jay Glazer and Colin Cowherd comment on the silence surrounding the Colts. 

I personally think we haven't missed out on anyone so far in FA at the price tag they were available. Looking forward to the draft!

I burst out laughing when they started talking about GMs/owners who just can't help themselves in FA frenzy because I knew Dan Snyder's name was only seconds away.

I think the statistics are largely schewd.  The majority of big spenders in FA that have the cap space to constantly acquire top-level talent in FA have been same for the last 10 years. It works for the teams that are in WIN NOW money. Boils down to having elite QB play

Can't really say I remember a team that has been successful and spent big money in free agency, gotta nail couple of drafts first and then incorporate free agents in the system

 

Apart from Mosley, I don't think any other "top talent" was worth the contract they got.

Why break the bank for most of these guys wanting huge multi-year deals that only have a few good years left.

I'm thankful we have a sane GM who knows how to build a lasting winning culture. The go all in crap is for the fans cause it sure isn't going to bring a trophy. Like one of our posters dubbed

 

Ballard gonna Ballard

Nearly everyone who has been signed that was "good" has been overpaid.

 

Mosley, Smith, Collins. I wouldn't have paid those contracts to those guys.

    • I don't think the waiver provision has changed, which is still a big issue. I think that makes it very unlikely that Eason goes to the PS this year; it makes little sense to spend a 4th on a guy and then expose him to waivers, unless you don't think he's working out. If Eason looks at least decent in camp, I doubt they waive him.    If I had to project right now, it would be Kelly that gets waived, with the intention of signing him back to the PS. (Followed by more unreasonable but totally predictable outcry from the three Chad Kelly stans on this board.)   Part of this goes back to the hard-coded resistance some have to carrying more than two QBs on the active roster. That's great if you have an entrenched starter who never misses games, in his prime. But over half the league typically carries 3 QBs. If you have a shaky starter, an injury-questionable starter, an old starter, or any questions at QB2, it's logical to have 3 QBs on the active roster.   In the Colts case, we have an old starter, on a new team, and our backup shouldn't be considered a potential franchise level starter. So having a developmental guy on the active roster is not only defensible, it's preferable.    Btw, I hate that first year players have to go through waivers to be put on the PS. If that rule were changed, I think some of these young players that bounce around for three years and then wind up out of the league might have a better chance at sticking somewhere.
    • I’m still a Fountain fan.  He had some bad luck with his injury, but he had a dominant camp last year...
    • Great video !!  I'm excited for this season.
    • No....  when Reich said Jacoby was ahead of Eason you said...   “who knows if that’s true or not?”      As if Reich had some reason to lie about it.   You’ve been talking in circles ever since. 
    • I never said he was lying. I said Reich is a optimist so don’t expect anything but positive stuff from him. The colts actions speak volumes of what they think of Jacobys upside.
