Well, what a couple of days that was! I deliberately stayed off the forum to avoid the initial responses and take time to consider this.  Here is where I stand as of today:   1. The timing o

Long time listener, first time caller.   How much would you pay to be able to walk without terrible pain for the last 50+ years of your life? At what point is it morally repugnant to make su

Was it really necessary to bring this back from the dead to reiterate a view that's been hashed, rehashed, and buried with the fourteen dead horses it ride in on? Lol.

    • Hughes really didn't do anything for us when he was here.  He wasn't working out in the 3-4 system and like @SteelCityColthas already said, he was very unhappy here.     In three years in Indy he had 51 tackles and 5 sacks and started just 7 total games.  He wasn't made for the system we were playing and he didn't want to play here anyway.     We got Kelvin Shepard in return who started 7 games (played in 15) and had 46 tackles the lone year here (basically equaling Hughes' 3 year output).     Hughes has gone onto a nice career in Buffalo, by changing position to edge rusher/DE.  Good for him.  Unless we switched to a 4-3 and moved him to a specialty role of edge rusher from the DE position, he would never have produced like that here.     It's easy to look at Hughes' numbers in Buffalo and think we lost out big on him, but the scheme we were running and his attitude in Indy wouldn't have worked out for him or us.  For what he was doing for us, it wouldn't be unreasonable to think he would have been cut and not made our final roster.  Instead we traded him and got decent value back, albeit for only 1 year.
    • The Fredd Young one hurt. We gave up two number 1s and he never really panned out. I'll even say I wasn't thrilled giving up the rights to Cornelius Bennett for Dickerson (although that trade helped put us back on the map) But MAN. Elway. Bob Irsay traded him after waiting a whole 5 weeks to (no hardball there), WITHOUT telling the GM at the time. Worst. trade. ever.
    • Draft position penalizes you for drafting successfully and winning in the previous year(s). I figure the NFL hates their GMs. "Let no good deed go unpunished."
    • Which team cut Kenny Moore because they didn’t think he could play?  Patriots?   Sometimes a change in scenery can work out.  The Bellicheck’s and Gruden’s of the world are not perfect either.
