Mack run was...meh.   AV's extra point...now THAT was highlight material.  HE MADE IT!!

What’s this I see? A comfortable lead?

Hoyer's coming in. We might lose this game after all....

Why is this team smelling a lot like the Pagano/Grigson era? Grigson was GM if the year and wasn’t Ariens coach of the year as well that first season or right there? Then the wheels come off the second season? Ugly looking team this season. And the coach/GM is being bullheaded in their choices at times (Vinny etc...)

Don't hurt yourself stretching that hard...

I only say that because there was a cult on here for awhile that would not allow him to be criticized or any decision questioned! People just hated Grigs so much that they crowned him a genius just because he wasn't Ryan!

He looked unstoppable for a year, and rightfully so.... He def. Lived up to the early hype.... Long term? We'll see.... Pretty sure the rest of the league liked what Ballard did early too, not just fans who grew weary of grigs dumb %

I'm just glad people finally realized he's no genius!

He's done a good job. Injuries are killing them right now. The starting QB quit at a time they had little time to adjust.  But he has made some mistakes too, like sitting on all that cap money and not spending it on O and D depth. Firing the Oline coach after a highly successful season.  Too many people have overrated this roster.  This is a middle of the road team.

    • We don't have a qb,  so no we don't need a wr more than a qb
    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........
