Bucs sign Suh

Recommended Posts

Ian Rapoport tweet.  Interesting!  Just 1 year!! (I would have bet he was wanting more)

 

And how much, vs. what McCoy would have cost?  Just a swap?

McCoy 's hit was $13 mil. for 1 year, so you bet he is looking at 2 years at least, at $10 mil. per at least.

 2 years at 19 mil... 1 mil in LTBE incentives (500k / yr)..  another 2 mil in ULTBE incentives (reach SB, achieve SB MVP, etc...)

Suh >>> McCoy by far.

 

Suh is more versatile and can play many positions on the D line which, IMO, makes him better.  But not 'by far'...

I probably exaggerated a bit there to make a point, since it seems like Suh gets dogged a lot. As a comparison of different aspects of their games...

 

Pass rush - McCoy

 

Run defense - Suh by a landslide

 

Versatility - Suh

 

Durability - Suh

 

(lack of) Penalties - McCoy

 

Character - push (Suh is dirty on the field, but a complete gentleman off the field - read up on him attaining his engineering degree, giving money back to his college, high school) - does not even have a jaywalking ticket.

This response is not directed at you, but at the general thought line that is shared by many.

 

When I refer to Suh as not being a good guy, (I believe I balked at him being called a "good guy" in another thread), does not mean I think he is a bad guy. What I think he is, is a bad example for younger players. He is a bad example by his actions of going from team, to team. If he was a "team" guy, he would not be going to his 4th team in 6 years. Ballard is building a team/family culture. I don't see the benefit to the Colt team culture by his example, let alone the possibility that he might vocally encourage a younger star player to follow his pattern.

Why is he a bad  not team guy if the team he was playing for doesn't offer him a contract?

There is always a reason teams don’t extend certain players. Sure, they could have just been wanting to save money. But also, they could have decided he wasn’t a good team presence and wanted to clean up their stable of players

4 teams in 6 years isn't by default. He is a me first veteran trying to get as much as he can at the end of his career. Again, not saying he is a bad guy, I'm saying that inline with what our GM has been trying to build, that is not the player attitude he likely wants in the building. 

 

Personally, I am glad he signed elsewhere.

I think the Colts are trying to build a good locker room of clean players with the right personality, but a veteran with a mean-streak might tear into that, so maybe they figured he wasn't worth the risk.

    • I agree. Brady will still dink & dunk as usual despite the much improved weapons. AND opposing DC's will give plenty of cushion to his targets like they did in new england.  
    • This is pretty rich coming from a person who felt compelled to include his race while trying to denounce racism and I hope that you’re able to understand what I mean by that.     
    • Sorry,  but this is false.   First,  roughly 20 states are already showing a spike in Corona cases.  And the more we re-open the more the number of cases is going to go up.   Second, you can forget about returning to anything close to normal until a vaccine is found.   Without that,  we will remain in some alternate state for the foreseeable future.   The most optimistic target date is early 2021.   Is sooner even possible?   Yes,  but it’s highly unlikely.   The early 2021 timetable is possible, but it’s considered optimistic.    Sorry, not trying to be Donnie Downer.  
    • I think some police like to abuse there power or get on power trips, absolutely. I believe that some cops are in fact racist. But you said being a cop and being racist go hand in hand and that is what I was referring too, as if to become a cop you have to agree to be racist. Do you hear about all the good stuff good cops do? Do you hear about all the bad stuff bad cops do? I will answer, unfortunately you rarely ever hear the good. You hear some of the bad in the local news and usually only national news if it was a White cop and African American victim.    Are all priests/pastors/religious leaders child predators? Absolutely not. Do you hear about all the good stuff the good ones do? Do you hear about all the bad stuff the bad ones do?    Stop letting the news/media sway your opinion. Yes this was a bad cop. It’s yet to be determined if it was racially motivated, not that it matters at this point. Public opinion has already stated it was. 
    • If you don't think that police like to be BULLIES then who is being ignorant?  I didn't  say everyone of them. I'm sure there are some good decent ones  but there is enough of them that aren't that make police brutality a topic that comes up more times than we care for.
