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?

9.5 million a year and Ballard gave Hankins 10 million. Seems like the Colts missed this one.

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.

Donald credits Suh for him being able to have a impact on the field.

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 had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
    • Here is a serious question, does anyone want to win the NL Central? I mean seriously  . We are winning it but just give games away like the Brewers and Cards do as well.
