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 feel sorry (not sorry) for the person who bought my 5 tickets for this game. I was shocked someone bought them for that price. 
    • Im all in with this idea. Training Camp > 2 Preseason games > 17 or 18 game regular season
    • Believe me I've been in Wilsons group of supporters since we drafted him but something seems off with him this summer. Desir, Moore, Rock, Hairston,and I look for Tell to make it over Wilson. Then Hooker, Geathers, Odum, and Willis at safety. Then we keep Milton for his special teams ability. I know he isn't a very good corner, but his special teams play is excellent.
    • The bolded is both funny and accurate.   So you are saying get rid of all pre-season games, correct?  Which is also fine by me, the teams may need to have rosters expanded a little.
    • I did some rough math with incomplete information, which is perfect for posting on a message board...   The NFL gets at least $6B/year in TV revenue, split between 32 teams is about $187m/year, per team. Over a 17 week regular season, that's about $11m each week. Based on the Packers financials, they make about $7m in revenue per home game.    Take away one preseason game at $7m (which is probably high; I get the feeling teams don't usually sell out in preseason, which means parking, concessions and memorabilia also take a hit), but add two weeks to the regular season, and each team comes out ahead.   And my proposal is you go to a 19 week regular season, with three bye weeks. So that extra revenue is only coming from being on TV for two extra weeks, not from tickets, concessions, etc. That also means you're not taking on additional overhead; you're actually reducing your overhead, because you're getting rid of a fully staffed preseason event, and not adding any regular season events. I think my proposal is a net gain for each team, solely on the basis of dominating TV for two extra weeks in the regular season.   I also think my proposal is better for the players and the quality of the game. If each team has three byes, you can schedule TNF only after a bye week -- which takes care of the low quality TNF games and probably improves ratings, increasing future profitability.
