Ummmmm   the final score was Colts 13 Bengals 6.... wouldn’t that mean the Colts won and thus are not winless in the preseason(not that it matters) Or am I seeing things?

True.  But Clowney (and their lack of a solid OT) put them in a no-win situation.

 

That said, they should never have been in that situation.  And that’s probably got a lot to do with them firing Gaine.

Reminds me of MLB Deadline Deal

You trade 2 future 1st Rounders and a 2nd Rounder for 2 guys over 25

 

 

   It reminds me of a MLB Trade Deadline Desperation deal

 

Deshaun spent a lot of time looking at the sky last season.  With what ended up happening to Luck, you can see why they would do almost anything to help that.

 

I’m not defending the trades.  They got fleeced, hard.  But with reason.

A lot of guys come into the league at 22, 23. What’s a couple of years? Tunsil literally just turned 25 two weeks ago. He’s not 34.

He isn't worth a first round pick.   Why make the trade now?  Season starts in a week.  He will have 2 practices before the season starts.

Agreed reminds me a lot like some MLB Deadline deals where a team give up prize prospects to get a position they need because of injuries

Yeah and they got an RB and a stud at LT, question becomes, is that enough to protect Watson, seemed to me they had more issues than just LT

You don’t think an emerging 25 year old LT is worth a first round pick? Teams are trading and picking up players left and right right now. I don’t think they care how many practices they have before game one of the season.

Is stills worth a first as well.   Then throw in a second for good measure.   Lol. I think O'Brien had a stroke or something

In today’s NFL unless they are Mormon or played baseball they come in at 20 to 21

I don’t think so. It’s a moot point Bc you’re reaching for straws on the age thing anyway.

I’m glad they addressed the line. It’s fine if you disagree with the method but I’m content.

That’s true — except for the part about Tunsil being a “stud.”  He’s a good LT with a better upside.  But if he was actually a stud, Miami would never have let him go.  True stud LTs are gold in this league.

 

That said, it’s a significant improvement over what they had.

No one is untradeable. Unless your name is Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Donald.

Yup, he's solid, but not stud/elite/top-10. Neither is AC for that matters. He's what Houston needed though.

They also didn't work out contract details for Tunsil.  Lol.     He has all the leverage now.    So funny.    

Source?!

I’d probably shít myself of laughter if he doesn’t resign with them 

Oh I would have to laugh. That said, they’re still laughing cause we don’t have luck

Unless they fall off in a big way, you aren’t going to see Bakhtiari, Whitworth, or Tyron Smith (to name three) on the trading block anytime soon.

 

It’s as critical a position as there is on a roster.  And guys that good are really, really hard to come by.  Their names may not be as well-known as Mahomes or Donald, but GMs don’t care about that...nor should they.

i dont think they will get much done on the ground with the Duke Johnson/Carlos Hyde combo. Theres got to be some other move thats coming. I like what theyve got for the passing game. Problem is most of that wr corps stays hurt every season. Good group if healthy between Fuller, Stills, Coutee, Hopkins, Duke Johnson. Still nothing much to turn to if Hopkins goes down. Tunsil is a good pickup albeit expensive. I really like the young RT they picked up in the draft in Titus Howard. Hes got a lot of talent.

Will Tytus Howard develop he played at Alabama State

    Small School lineman struggle at times

It’s not about being well-known, it’s about transcendence. But I do see where you’re coming from.

I think his preseason has been solid. Held his own at Senior Bowl. Time will tell.

    • In reality they are probably right to point out that most GMs in the league don't have long enough track record to be free of small sample bias one way or the other. It's very likely if you gave every GM 100 drafts, their draft success will tend to converge toward the average. BTW, I wonder where Grigson would be on those graphs. I would guess pretty high thanks to drafting Luck and TY Hilton(similar to HOU in this graph thanks to Deshaun Watson). Just another reminder that even though those graphs might be useful in some cases you have to keep in mind their limitations and biases.
    • Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...     
    • Yeah, if Miller or Haeg had the WHOLE resume and the talent of Godwin maybe we should. Also, it's not me that's taken it here. YOU just did.   I've already pointed out several times that this is NOT my 'take', but rather a guess on part of the explanation on the Bucs place in those graphs. So why do you keep going with this? At this point I am considering this bad faith exchange on your part. On the second part - yes, it would have to be taken in consideration(if they were up for trade and tied in similar contracts, rather than Godwin being a FA). BTW Godwin is one of the players we should consider breaking Ballard's bank on this FA. Insert Whynothaveboth.gif Agree with this. Evans is both better and more valuable than Godwin. Worth pointing out that both Superbowl teams had premier pass catching weapons as it relates to our discussion on the value of the position.  
    • Without contact?   I don’t think that’s true.   His knee injury this year was a helmet to his knee while his foot was planted.   He had 3-4 injuries his rookie year, I think only the foot injury was non contact.     Campbell had no significant injuries in college.  Think he played 38-39 games in three years.  
    • I haven't payed a lot of attention to CBs yet, but Trill seems to check almost all of the boxes for what we look for in a corner (haven't seen any arm length figures yet, but length is a common positive I've seen for him, so im3 assuming he hits the marks). I'm really intrigued and need to check out some more film of him.
