It will take a hell of a lot more than a 3rd string qb .  The jags are reportedly wanting 2 firsts

 

Agreed.

From what I read (Im not a CB expert) Ramsey is an A level CB but thats a lot to give up for any player. Particularly one that cant get along with his coach.

It depends on how the Jaguars view Chad Kelley. Do they see him as a potential starter, over G. Minshew, until Foles returns?

 

If so, a first and a starting/back up QB would be a reasonable offer.

 

Still, this does not sound like a Ballard type  move. And Ramsey is a not a Ballard type of player, so all of this is highly improbable to begin with.

Lol. This guy is crazy. How would a dolphins beat writer know this. We don’t really need a CB. Ballard is never going to give up draft capital with the QB situation not settled yet.

 

Depends how bad Desir is hurt.

They are all from the same guy. 

I'm calling nonsense.

The Colts would never sign a guy with that attitude.

 

Unless they feel like his attitude is the result of being in a toxic atmosphere. Eric Ebron & Devin Funchess weren't exactly locker room darlings either.

I mean if it’ll end up being a somewhat late 1st pick we are giving up, and someone like Quincy Wilson, I’m possibly for it. Ballard could still use his two 2nd round picks to go get his guy in round 1 at QB if he wants. Still hope we go after a guy like Jordan Love at QB. 

 

And we will have ample cap space for awhile with Luck retiring to pay Ramsey.

He stated Indy "IS" shopping for a CB upgrade.  That's a very definitive statement.  How would he know that unless he heard it from multiple teams.  It only took one 1st. to get Minkah.  They took Pittsburghs because they think that will be a top 10 pick.  We could have been in on him for all we know.  Our 1st and Kelly might be something they are thinking about.  This could explain why a Kelly decision is taking so long.

There was never any indication those two guys were bad in the lockeroom. Ebron was with fans and funchess just had a problem with catching the ball. Character was never a issue with either

He also said Dallas and Indy was a guess. He doesn’t understand how ballard works. Maybe we are looking for a CB with Desir injury. I would think they might call up Collins.

Yea can't  see Ballard  giving  up two firsts. If he did our secondary would be way better, but not sure it would be better value than what we would have gotten  from the two firsts. Wish Barkley  was on the trading block. Love to see him behind  this oline

Eberflus just gave Wilson a ton of glowing comments today. After his game Sunday I doubt he would be traded

Funchess had issues with coaches & teammates, it was highlighted on All or Nothing. Ebron seemed to have issues with everyone in Detroit towards the end of his tenure there, I can't speak for his locker room presence though.

If all we had to do was call up Collins then why bother calling other teams looking for an up grade?  The way I read his quotes is we are the team that he mentions the most and he sees us as the AFC team and he mentions Dallas as the NFC team.  He didn't mention Dallas was looking for an upgrade but we definitely are.

    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
