I like you and everyone else on this board have no idea what Ballard would take in a trade for Luck. I will say that the Cutler trade was 11 years ago and teams value draft picks much more than they did then. Also I said a 1st round pick in the top 10. Cutler 1st rounders were the 18th in that draft and next year's first. But then again there was a 3rd and Orton. Who knows ... this would have so many moving parts if ever came to be.
For what it’s worth.... yesterday (Monday) over on ESPN radio, Will Cain piled on the love for Frank Reich.
Said among head coaches, only BB and Sean Peyton are better. Said guys like Reid and Harbaugh may be considered equal to Frank, but they’re not better.
Cain added that he thinks some of the struggles for Carson Wentz may have to do with not having FR on his coaching staff.
Said one of the ways you can judge a great coach is his ability to win in various ways. We beat KC with the ground game one week, then beat Hou with the passing game the next.
You can agree or not with any of Cains points... but either way, it’s nice to get a little love on a national level every once in a while. It’s nice to know that some of the media are paying attention to us...
This won’t always be the case... but it’s nice to enjoy while we can...
