Its lack of talent not coaching.  Ebron hangs on to ball and thats 7 points.  A good qb hits Hiems and we move the ball.  I am still waiting for one of Ballard's picks to surpass where they were drafted. I will give him Nelson who is a top 6 pick and Mack....thats it

Not if you are talking about today up to this point....

 

Yeah, but you're projecting a small sample.  It may be accurate, but it also may not.  It's kind of like a team scoring a FG on their first possession of the game, so the score is 3-0 after 3 minutes and you do the projection and say, "At this rate, the final score will be 60-0."  You're technically correct, but the projection is pretty meaningless at that point.

Leonard,  Willis,  and quite a few others.   The talent is fine.   The fact we are starting Brian Hoyer is the issue.

    • I wouldn't start before 7pm. Anything before that makes it difficult for some to get home, do family dinner stuff, etc.   If you go 5min, I'd literally spell out draft windows for each team/GM. Like: 1. 7:00pm 2. 7:05pm etc..   If you don't, 5 turns into 7, etc. and it all stretches. And when it stretches, attention meanders. Keep it tight, and also be quick/firm on bumping folks.    I'd be happy to help. I'd recommend an actual mod for the big board / draft pick thread. What we did was lock the thread as read only, and the single OP post was just updated for every pick (so you're not constantly copy/pasting). I'm happy to do that if the mods want to give me temp edit privileges for locked threads. It's typically the hardest/busiest job. It's a constant monitor of the main pick thread and constant edit... 
    • If TY leaves, it likely because we signed one of the top guys on the market or plan to draft one in the 1st or 2nd round
    • I wouldn't be shocked if we picked up a LB later in the draft or a cheaper FA for depth reasons... but TBH, I think we'll see EJ Speed get more reps at LB this year.  The coaching staff says he has as good of physical traits as any LB on the team, but coming from Tarleton State he needed a bit of NFL coaching refinement.     I also tend to think with our secondary we'll see a lot of plays with 4 DL, 2 LBs and 5 DBs.  Meaning Leonard and Oke likely get the bulk of the LB work if Walker walks (which seems inevitable).  With Leonard, Oke, Speed, Franklin, Adams I think we're OK at LB without adding another one (with Glasgow being a 6th man unlikely to see LB snaps, but on the roster for ST work).  We also have the potential of Skai Moore coming back from covid opt-out.     Ballard has said in numerous press conferences that he likes Walker but the price would have to be right for Walker and the Colts.  I see Walker demanding high dollar and Ballard letting him go try to get that $ elsewhere.  As I noted above, I think the coaching staff is pretty high on EJ Speed and we have pretty solid LBs (well a stud in Leonard) with Oke, Adams, Franklin already on the team.  Like you said, I won't be shocked to see Ballard go after a later round LB in the draft or bring in a cheaper vet for depth purposes, but I don't think we'll miss Walker all that much if he leaves (we especially won't miss him if he is demanding a huge contract as we have other areas where we can/need to spend $).
    • I don’t have a specific number.  But I’m doing some basic math.      Enough money was lost this year that the salary cap number could’ve been much lower.  But it would’ve blown things up for all 32 teams, so it was agreed that the absolute floor would be $175m.   A few revenue streams came in a little better than expected so the current number is $180.5.   It may go up another 1-2 mill, but that’s reportedly it.    The agreement between management and players called for a gradual increase as things returned to normal.  Neither side wanted a sharp increase like — you know — $40m in one year.   Makes things too volatile for everyone.  The goal was to return things to normal in 3-4 years depending on how long the Covid issue remains.   That’s what I know.    Im not saying you’re 100 percent wrong about the figure just yet.   Only that it’s (A) too soon to know, the decision is a ways off.   No one knows if, or how many tickets will be sold for the ‘21 season?   And (B) it’s likely a wrong figure because the talk of gradual and manageable figures to return to normal for the betterment of both sides.   Thats what I remember reading when things got settled last year.   I’m guessing we won’t know for quite some time until revenue figures for ‘21 are better understood.
