DK Metcalf is the player I'm hoping for in Round 1...

And an unproven rookie is guaranteed to make us better?

 

Or our WRs as compared to our DBs or LBs?

He's not, that was my point.

Fair enough.

 

And I do agree that we need to add playmakers to take the next step.

 

I just don't see a team in the league with a HB/WR/TE combo where their HB is better than Mack, their WR is better than Hilton, and their TE is better than Ebron/Doyle.

 

Right off the top of my head....      and I'm not saying ALL are better,  but most are....

 

Cleve:  

WR:  Beckham, Landry, Galloway

TE:    Njoku

RB:   Chubb, Hunt, Johnson

 

SD:

WR:   Allen, Williams, Benjamin

TE:     Henry

RB:     Gordon

 

Atl:  

WR:   Jones, Ridely,  Sanu

TE:    Hooper

RB:    Freeman
 

There's three,  and I gave it almost no thought.    Other teams have so much more quality weapons than we do.    I'm sure I can come up with more if need be.

Is everyone forgetting Hilton had a bad ankle and the field in KC was a slippery mess. Two safeties out.  Players on defense playing out of position. You can’t look at the KC game. There was a lot of factors that went into that loss. 

 

Dear God.,,

Both teams were banged up.  KC had injury issues with Watkins, Ware, and Hill on O, not to mention the loss of Hunt earlier, both NTs, Ragland (one of their top tacklers) , and 2 CBs.

 

Our D was really not the issue IMO. We held them to under their average pts. (4.3 under). They scored the same on NE who beat them. They were held under 31 only 4 times. 

 

And the slippery mess didn't effect KC .

Their running game tore us up. 180 yards, 4 TDs. Ours, 87 yards, 0 TDs. 

They doubled TY and we simply had no answers. Play calling was predictable once we got down.

To tell you the truth our oline which had been stellar did not perform in KC. That was a huge problem. When every part of the game plus the coaching is so bad I just think we ran out of gas more then needing more weapons. Every team would love to upgrade and have more weapons. I think we have enough to win a SB. But of course I would love to upgrade. I just don’t think it’s so bad like so many others think.

Honestly, I wouldn't hang it on the OL. Luck is one of the best in TT (time to throw), which is how long it takes him to get the ball out. His year average is 2.63 (top 10 close to Brady and Rivers). His average for the KC game was 2.86.

 

Might not seem like a big difference, but 2.86 puts him in the 10 worst category. A higher TT can mean thee things, or a combo. Either your line is giving you a lot of time, your a dancer or QB that leaves the pocket a lot, or your WRs are covered up and you can't throw as fast as you want, or both. Lucks not a frequent dancer. In the case of the KC game, our WRs were covered up. 

 

Luck had a similar TT vs Buffalo, who was the #1 pass defense in the league (TY was doubled and only had 25 yards that game). We beat Buffalo badly, but it was more because they turned the ball over 5 times and we had a great running game. Didn't hurt that they have one of the worst Os either.

 

Jax was also a bad one for Lucks TT, and they are #2 passing defense that also doubled TY.

Man the more I research on this guy the more I want him..His physical traits compare favorably to Calvin Johnson and the aggression he plays with reminds me of Josh Gordon..We have never had a receiver with his skill set as far as power, speed, and size..The only reason he will be available is health concerns, but I can't see Ballard passing on his upside..I doubt he lasts, as I think Gruden will want him in a Raiders uniform..If he is there we got to take the guy in my opinion..If not I'll take Wilkins or Lawrence with a smile on my face to make D-Line a force to be reckoned with, preferably Lawrence...We can't lose with any of these 3..

KNeal is a better projection and just look at how he performs at other sports as the kid is a future All Pro @ WR.  Free TY

On K'Neal, I like him, but not at 26 or 34. I want more of an X than a slot. He might be able to do well at X, but would have to improve a lot at the press.

 

Overall, I think Cain (if he blossoms) will be an X initially, or Z (that takes over eventually for TY). Slot is crowded this year. Rogers is coming off a much improved year, and I think Funchess will get a lot of time at slot as well. TY long term could be a great slot when he starts to lose a step (which could be in 1-4 years). I'm just not sure I want a slot that isn't a pure speed slot. If I want that, I'll go with Isabella who could also play speed X or Z long term.

That's what I meant:  ALL are better.

 

I think TY is as good or better than OBJ and Allen, and I think Ebron is as good or better than Njoku, Henry, and Hooper.

 

There are a few teams with a better WR than TY.  There are a few teams with a better TE than Ebron.  There are quite a few teams with a better HB than Mack.  But there are NO teams (IMO) with a better WR, better TE, AND better HB than the Colts.  Maybe KC when they still had Hunt/Hill/Kelce, but without Hunt, I'd say Mack is better than any of their current RBs.

I’m not sure Mel Kiper has ever been right in anything.   All those dudes pick draft picks due to need only and there is not a quality GM in the league that does that 

 

how can I say Ballard won’t draft a WR at 26?    He basically said it won’t happen.  And he’s not listening to the fans.    

 

Hes building by BPA which is the smartest way to build a team.    Especially a young team with upgradeable positions at most positions 

 

Please show me the quote where he said he won't take a receiver in the 1st round.

    • While some of those folks own up to it later, it is amazing how quiet some of them get.
    • A 5th round pick and a ham sandwich.  With extra mayo.
    • I don't think he ever said that.  I think he made some general threat to the woman that made reference to the kid, and then people quickly ran with that to interpret it as him saying that he would do to her what he did to the kid, thereby indirectly implying he broke the kids arm.  At least it seemed like there could be enough smoke generated from this tape to justify kicking him out of the league to send the all-important proper social message.  I think now the feeling is that the interpretation of what he was talking about is flawed.   It sounds like this has come down to where he simply threatened her during an argument.  Not enough smoke to suspend him, IMO.
    • I don't want to use resources on another linebacker, so in order for me to pull the trigger, it would have to be a huge steal. I'd do a 2nd rounder
    • You're acting as if we don't know anything about Deon Cain. The higher ceiling is based on the fact that he's a second round talent that dropped due to personality concerns, and the fact that he was doing so well in camp. Obviously I'm not saying they don't like Fountain, but before the preseason the Colts were calling him "the steal of the draft". Turns out we did have the steal of the draft, but that's besides the point    The ACL tear isn't being underestimated, the thing is that there's a difference when you tear your ACL in August vs October or November. Also, what has Fountain done to prove more than Cain? He was on the practice squad, and he had that one divisional game drop. Other than that I don't see why you think Fountain is more proven or whatever. And it is simply absurd to have him over Pascal and Chester. The problem is that we know what they are: not very good. When deciding who to keep on the roster, the question is not "have these guys contributed before?" The question is "will these guys contribute?" And the answer is, from what I've seen and heard, Deon Cain is talented and is at least worth keeping more than Pascal and Chester.
