Doyle signed to three year extension

Recommended Posts

I hate to say it we are better with Doyle getting more touches. Ebron hurt this team this year.

IMHO this is good news, depending on the salary numbers of course. Doyle is a good all-around TE, and also he rules lol.

Ebron didn’t hurt this team. Not any more than anyone else. And Doyle has had some big time drops as well.

I would think with AC staying healthy this year and having one of his best years we will see him re-signed here soon. His context will probably be a lot of money.

We are better this year with Doyle getting more touches period.  Ebron was playing like crap and couldn’t stay out of his own head. I would take 19 Doyle’s over one Ebron.

Probably will have little to no effect one way or the other. We have so much available cash, we can pretty much sign anyone 

AC contract is going to be huge. Don’t be surprised if they give Kelly the long term extension also. He has stayed healthy which is what we want to see. Both are going to be some of the highest paid players in the league at their positions.

And we still have 100 mil plus whatever the cap increase is

A bird in hand is definitely worth more than two in the bush. Reward the guy who has been a steady floor for you and the coaches know all about him in practices and all the dirty work he does on game day. Doyle has never been about stats, and if stats happen, they happen with him. He won't wow anyone in the gym but he will always be that steadying force you can count on. Like everyone, he has had his down moments but he has had far more steady moments than down ones, and that is why they love him.

 

Well deserved Jack!!!

I think it’s pretty cool he has been such a good and steady player that he will have played mostly his entire career in the city he grew up.

So we're going to let one of our best play makers in Ebron, walk. Sound like an excellent move. No offense to jack he's a good player but he is not the playmaker that Ebron is. Say what you want about him but he can't throw the ball to himself. The only thing that changed was his QB.

No one from the Colts said anything about Ebron. We can sign him if we want. Doyle has nothing, nada to do with Ebron staying or going. We can easily afford both and need both

Correct me if I'm wrong, but he had 80 yards with Ebron out.  

 

He can have the stats if the Colts actually try to play him that way.

Ebron has stone hands and is useless as a blocker. Glad he will be gone.

Well, if he can catch it when it hits his hands, that sure would help. You have to catch the ball to make plays, did Ebron forget that while thinking about breaking Gronk's record for TDs? One good year got to his own head. History tells you that his turnaround last year was more of an outlier and he went back to his Lions days of dropping balls again.

What does signing Doyle have to do with Ebron?......…...…. Nothing.

Even on passes thrown directly to him he had stone hands no thanks on a new contract for him.

Which is why Ebron hurt us this year. Doyle getting more targets might of helped the offense this year because Eric was to erratic.

To be fair, he had drop issues last year with Luck too. That said, I hope we keep him

Ebron is gone IMO. This is a great move though because Doyle is a good TE.

 

This is a kick in the rear to Ebron, IMO. Jack deserves it. We are better when he's on the field.

 It was great to see Doyle look like he can last Sunday. No Ebron freed up the offense. Jack can keep doing this for several more years. Yaaaa!

    • 9th by ESPN analytics.   Used Wins Above Replacement as their main metric.   Apologies,  it's a Premium story and I'm never quite sure what I'm allowed to reveal about stories like that.   Remember,  we started off drafting 26th...     and then traded back to 34th where we took Rock.   So, from there our class of Rock, Ben, Parris, Bobby, Khari, Tell and Speed did well enough to have us ranked 9th overall.   With his full staff in place,  we have a front office that seems to have a good idea of what they're doing.
    • It is funny how this "game manager" tag gets stuck on Fromm.  Last year Fromm threw 30 TDs, Love had 32.  Yet, Love is the playmaker and Fromm a game manager.  So this year Love throws 20 TDs and it is blamed on the changes in coaching and players around him.  Fromm through less TDs this year because they had a run orientated team.  But Fromm is a game manager.  Or he has great talent around him.  Couldn't that argument be made for Burrow?  I like your points here.  I like Fromm because he is decisive and accurate and go throw progressions well.  As much as people like to say the NFL is changing you need QBs to make plays out of the pocket, if you look at the final 4 QBs, Mahomes in the only one I would say would do that.  The players who succeed are ultimately the ones who make plays from the pocket.  It always has been that way and always will be that way.  Because it ultimately is about timing.  Guys like Watson make a few nice plays a game but are inconsistent.  I would rather have someone who is efficient and consistenly makes the right throws.
