An inside Team free agent philosophy (long)

Recommended Posts

Best post on here in a long time.  It really helps us understand what may be going on in Chris Ballard's mind.

The locker room chemistry is crucial. You want all of your team to feel that they are contributing and of value to your overall success. " Esprit de Corps"

Do not sign a player for more than the team leader or your best player at that position. This about rewarding loyalty and maintaining a balanced cost structure within your team because otherwise it creates bad locker room chemistry. Players know. They do.

 

This one really resonated with me.  These are the intangibles of a ball club.  With Ballard's model, adding a high-priced name could be disastrous.  Here's to sticking with the plan.

 

Overall great read and thanks for posting.  I've become infatuated with the management process.  As a savvy Fantasy Football player, I'm becoming more invested in knowing specific elements of ball clubs such as turnover, coordinator/HC change, and scheme change.  

 

This stuff is gold.

    • Thanks LOS for the pregame stuff. Go Colts!
    • Agree.  Last weeks game gave new definition to "flag" football, lol.
    • I respect Gill Brandt but I agree, Titans aren't even top 10. He is way off with that one IMO.
    • On the surface, this looks bad. However, there's always much more that we do not know.  A tiny tidbit of that is this--     He wasn't at home, but the home burglar alarm was supposedly tripped.  Police enter (probable cause stated) the residence and while looking for burglars find some powder somehow/somewhere they want to test? Does / was said item have to be in plain sight through a window for them to enter? Or can they claim they went in and were looking for bad guys when they 'stumbled upon the contraband?   Has he ever failed any NFL drug test?  Who else has access to that home besides Chung?  Chung will get a good lawyer to challenge this and there are likely multiple other issues we have no clue about.  It's cloudy enough I doubt the NFL does anything, at least for the near future.   Another grey area, this matter seems to be under the NFL substance abuse policy and not the personal conduct policy.   If so, this is an excerpt from a connected article covering it-   "First, nothing can be done until the charges are resolved. The league can’t, and won’t, conduct its own investigation and take action independent of the criminal process.   Second, Chung can’t be suspended with pay pending resolution of the charges. It’s simply not available under the substance-abuse policy. The Commissioner-Exempt list applies only to potential Personal Conduct Policy violations involving alleged crimes of violence.   Third, Chung will be subject to NFL discipline only if he ultimately is found responsible for a drug-related offense. This requires a conviction, a guilty plea, a no-contest plea, or entry into a diversion program. If Chung fights the charges and wins exoneration, the league can do nothing."   Chung might play all 2019 while the legal battle ensues. We'll just have to let the justice system play out here.   https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/patrick-chung-will-face-no-league-punishment-likely-for-a-while/ar-AAGbAoZ
    • Jarret Stidham, and Brian Hoyer.  It will be highly interesting to see what BB does...  recently he more often has only kept 2, with exceptions (IE: Garoppolo and Brissett for one).  He once kept 4, and the 4th stringer made #2 (backup) next season, and supplanted the #1 later and has become arguably the best QB ever to play.   Ironically, Hoyer is the guy who made Belichick comfortable enough to go to only 2 QB's, and now Stidham might phase out Hoyer for that spot.   https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/wholl-be-tom-bradys-backup-a-quarterback-controversy-may-be-brewing-with-patriots/
