    • How do we know he wants to play for the colts. Did I miss something?
    • Patriots select Jake Fromm Saints up   I like that bills pick
    • It seems like we might be able to get away with giving them our 34th pick. The Raiders are losing all the leverage with how public it is that they want Brady.    Also kinda interesting. Seeing more of this.       
    • I think he'll test the waters just for the sake of doing so. He's never been in this position before, so why not? But in terms of actually committing to a team? I can't see him leaving NE. They'll work out a deal to keep him. 
    • I think being 'unimportant' and not being HOF caliber are two different things.  Hilton has been in the league for 8 years.  He has never had more than 100 receptions in a season.  Marvin did it 4 times in his first 7 years with 94 receptions in his 8th year (TY's got 2 seasons with 82 catches, 1 with 91 and only one other with over 70 so 4 over 70 total in his first 8).  Marv led the league in receptions and receiving yards 2x during his first 8 years and had 5 seasons with over 10 TDs.  TY has never had a season with more than 7 TDs.  Marv had his year with 143 receptions when he was double or triple teamed every game.  TY can be taken out of games effectively by being double teamed.  If you go past the first 8, Marv had a stretch where he had >1,000 yards and 10+ TDs for 8 straight years (the best streak in NFL history).  I highly doubt TY's going to pull that task off considering he's never had a single season with >7 TDs.   Reggie had 5 of his first 8 seasons w/ >70 catches, 4 of them >80 catches and 1 with 100 catches.  He then had 3 more 100+ reception seasons later in his career.  Reggie had 10+ TDs twice in his first 8 years compared to 0 for TY.  All Marv, Reggie and TY had 5 seasons w/ >1,000 yards in their first 8 seasons.   TY's body also doesn't seem to be holding up all that well.  He has had injuries the past couple years which obviously impacted his play.  At his current pace, he'd likely need to last 15 seasons to make it to 1,000 receptions, which is pretty much the minimum to be considered for the HOF at the WR position unless you're someone who got hurt early and completely impacted the game (e.g., Megatron).     Don't get me wrong, I like TY a lot.  He's a special player when he's healthy.  But I highly doubt he's a HOFer, especially if the QB play doesn't improve around here.     I think TY is versatile enough to move inside or outside.  He's shown he can play outside, mainly because his speed.  But yes, look at the year Marv had 143 receptions.  He was double or triple teamed every single game.  Teams knew what was coming and they couldn't stop him.  While I don't think TY's a bad route runner, Marv by many accounts was the best route runner in the game when he played (Peanut Tillman, Shawn Springs, Champ Bailey are all on record saying this, and I think a few other top-tier CBs said the same thing).     Again, I like TY a lot.  However, without weapons around him, he can be taken out of games regardless of who his QB is.  Marvin was very rarely taken out of games (unless you consider the Pats game in which Ty Law was basically tackling Marvin at the line of scrimmage, a game which changed the NFL history since Polian got the rules changed that offseason to make it a lot easier on WRs than it was then).
