while I can see us stumbling into the wild card just cause Miamii has no QB or number one Wide Receiver, I am sure the Texans will have alot to say about things, oh and the Steelers, Patriots, MAYBE Broncos,but could happen

you guys have NO FAITH! cmon people. Obviously we had a bad season last year because our quarterback probably didnt even know what his job was to do.

This guy looks very optimistic! If the quarterback of the Bengals took his team to the playoffs. Why cant Luck do it?

I still stand by my prediction Colts win division next year

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but right now the Texans should run away with the AFC South quite easily I'm afraid. I hate to burst your bubble here especially with Aaron Foster running the ball.

For one thing, the Bengals have a defense.

Yeah that's thinking slightly ahead of the curve but Luck will have a legitimate #1 WR to throw to now. With a draft stacked full of WRs, OLs and Fleener if he falls to the 2nd, this offense will be a great starting point for Luck.

Yeah and Luck passes for 4978950372 yards and wins the DPOY award.

Being realistic, I see us losing both Texans games and the Lions game, to go along with all your other predicted losses making us 8-8. No playoffs. Houstan wins the division. Teams from the steelers division and the patriots division will take the two wild card slots. oops. Also forgot the jets loss. Leaving us 7-9 and out of the playoffs

I think it would be more like this... I changed it for ya. 7-9 is more like it, maybe 8-8.

I find your lack of faith in the Colts and/or Andrew Luck (presumably) disturbing...

What lack? I don't think he deserves all this credit. He has yet to do anything, so until he does then he doesn't deserve praise. Greatest Prospect holds no value. John Elway was the greatest prospect too, yet he isn't the greatest of all-time. There are many draftees since 1983 'til now are better then Elway. So until Luck plays I'll hold off on the praises. It doesn't mean I won't support him though.

I have no idea what that means, but it sounds dirty.

It's not; it's something from Shakespeare. Think of a petard as a suicide bomber and he's hoisting it. It's a bomb that is used to destroy stuff back in the day. He said that hoisted by ones petard. Yeah, all those crappy years of Shakespeare finally paid off :thmup:

Before people speculate, it might be good to wait till our roster is determined. There is a possibility the offense could be epic this year now we have Wayne back. Pending on the draft (which should be heavy offense) I fully expect for the foundation of the future offensively to be built this year. We already have Luck (presumed as QB), Costanzo, Wayne, Collie, Brown (who I think will fit perfectly into this new offense) just to name a few without the draft and without the rest of the FA acquisitions. It would be nice to sign Sat back and bring in a solid FA OG, + the draft could give this team an offense that has great potential. Lets keep calm, cool and collected.

A SB is far fetched but 8-8 should be a possibility if everything is done right.

Yeah. Well, the years of watching Star Wars hasn't really done much for me to be honest.

In light of the "hoisted by their own petard" phrase trivia that Andy246 and UndecidedFrog shared, here's a worthless fact.

"Namby-Pamby" was originally a nickname for the poet Ambrose Philips (1674-1749) who was known for writing sentimental verse.

Luck will do well his rookie year, I think. Still, will it be clouded by those ideas of the fans who expected huge things, or will it be magnified by the views of the skeptics? He will do well, I think, but not Super Bowl well. Just my opinion.

    • As you likely know,  the 2021 schedule is revealed Wednesday Night...   5/12...   8p your time...   5p my time...     These are things I always look for as soon as I see the schedule.   In no particular order....   1.    Do we start at home, or on the road?   Typically, you close your season with the opposite.       2.    Marquee games?    National Games?    Are we on the big stage at all?    Anything beyond the dreaded Thursday night games which most every team gets stuck with and hates!     Ugh.  The worst.   3.   Bye week?    When does it happen?    I prefer late October to Early November.   Something close to the middle of the season.    We got lucky once having the bye week in week 4.    That was Luck's rookie year.    The early break allowed Chuck Pagano and his wife to see a doctor and caught his leukemia early enough to save him.    Otherwise, I hate the early bye week.   I prefer weeks 7-10.   4.   Hardest stretch of the schedule.   Easiest part of the schedule.   Knowing full well that what the schedule might seem like in May, might be totally different by the time that part of the season comes.   5.    Potential bad weather games.    So, this year,  we play Buffalo, Baltimore, Dolphins and Jags on the road.   Games in September likely means hot and humid.   Games in the northern cities in December likely means cold and even possible snow.   6.    Anything out of the ordinary?    Some years, one team gets screwed and has to play 3 consecutive games on the road.    I think it has most recently happened to SF and Seattle,  and those teams already put on a lot of miles traveling from the West Coast.   Did I leave out anything?     Is there something you look for and I didn't mention it?    Let us know!   The 2021 season gets REAL Wednesday Night!           
    • Actually we can if we cut Doyle. Saves 4.5 mil
    • No way have the cap room to spend on him. 
    • OK......   You've conflated two issues in this post, and moved the goal-line in the process.   Your headline says "Why does Ballard love 1-year deals"...     and you list a large bunch of players who have received one-year deals.   But you've also lumped in with them, a bunch of players who are NOT one 1-year deals.    They are on the last year of their rookie contract.    Their 4-year rookie contract.    That's entirely DIFFERENT.   You listed, Hines, Wilkins, Smith, Turay, Lewis,  Adams and Franklin.   That's 7 players who are on the last year of their 4-year rookie contract.   You even included Glowinski, who is on the last year of his 3-year deal that Ballard signed him to.    8 players.   And they've all been lumped in with guys who got 1-year deals.   The reasons for all the 1-year deals are several.    One, 1-year deals keep motivation high.   Two,  1-year deals can be done with players at a young age because you have contractual leverage, like with Pascal and MAC and Odoms.    Three,  one year deals during this current strange Covid time is because the salary cap has gone down,  no one is quite sure how much it will go up next year?   So, better to do a one-year deal and then figure things out in a year or so when we all have a better idea on what the 22 cap will be and even the 23 cap.    Four,  things are going to get complicated, financially speaking, when we sign guys like Q, Darius and Braden to their Big Deals.   Plus, by then we might be talking about extending Wentz.   All that will be a big factor on our long-term approach to the team.
