I’m not ticked we traded back, half expected it. But I’m shocked what little we got

 

It is not little, IMO. We got used to an obscenely one-sided trade with the Jets, and we got about 900 plus points on the trade value chart in return for our 700. Such trades do not happen too often in the NFL, the Jets kind that is.

Redskins have a tough schedule. They could go 3-13 which would make that 2nd Rd 2020 pick worth over 500 points + #46 is worth 440

You can't base a trade on what a team might do a year from now.  

 

Wow.  Such little value.

 

And it isn't even for this year.  So no help this year.

 

Wow.

We traded back twenty spots.... out of the first round, and back twenty spots. I’m a huge Ballard fan and trust him, but we lost the trade on this one. There wasn’t a diehard had to have player for me at 26th, so I’m cool with the trade, but it was light on the value

That is for sure not worth trading down.

 

Don't like it.  And before you call me a Ballard hater.....you just dropped 20 picks to get a second round pick a year from now.  THAT IS NOT GOOD VALUE.

 

Well, we’ll....   look who predictably showed up?   Like clock work.

 

And once again, you’re wrong.  At least you’re consistent.

 

It’s not good value.  It’s VERY good value!

If what they said is true, that players from mid-1st round to 3rd round are just a few notches apart, this ends up being a good trade for us, especially since the next year draft class is more loaded on the skill position side.

 

I'll trust this scouting staff Ballard has assembled to evaluate next year's class to make this trade.

Why would we take them at 26 when we added picks AND just pick them tomorrow... come on man

 

Pick who tomorrow? Sweat, Abram? Yeah they're gone. And whoever else of any actual value that disintegrates between our first pick. Bad value all around. A future 2nd isn't that valuable, not enough to entirely leave the first round. Sweat is a stud, Abram a stud. Whatever, hopefully he nails these picks.

We will pick a great player with that 2nd Rd pick next year

Maybe, we shall see. Ballard has a plan and has earned my trust so I’m good with it(like my opinion matters haha )

I don't know man. I think when you want back into the first, you're going to have to over pay. I would have at least wanted their 3rd this year too..

That's you're opinion.. not mine

 

Regardless of the health issues I wasn't that intrigued with Sweat and Abram I was meh on

A year from now we will know a little more on the value...it isn’t just a spot..there was real guys sitting there we just passed on...for theoretical players..who knows. Again...Ballard has earned some trust with last year but dang to move that far back...hope he didn’t get to smart for his own good.

I'm gonna keep doing what I've been doing and see what happens before I say Ballard made a bad decision.

I don’t think it was a bad decision, I actually think the trade notion was good. Just would have liked to see more value for trading back.

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
