Cowherd: Indianapolis Makes Most Sense for Tom Brady in 2020


Recommended Posts

https://nesn.com/2020/01/colin-cowherd-makes-compelling-case-for-why-tom-brady-could-join-colts/

 

I just thought this would be an interesting topic to discuss. I know this should bring up a lot of opinions and emotions.  Listen and watch the whole video from Cowherd. I personally honestly think all of his points are spot on and do make a lot of sense. Even though he's not the same Brady this year, he's still shown to play at a high level. Bring him in and help groom a young QB. In reality, I think the chances of this even forming is highly implausible in my opinion, but I could be wrong.

 

McDaniels could be gone to coach a new team. Indianapolis is an indoor team that plays Houston twice a year that is also an indoor stadium. Brady plays very well against AFC South teams. Brady doesn't have a TY Hilton or a great Tight End to throw the ball to anymore. The Colts have possibly the top O-Line in the whole NFL and Brady would thrive behind it. Great GM and great head coach in Frank Reich. Indy has A LOT of cap money to spend.

 

Cons: Indy's defense is not New England good, or anywhere near it. Brady is 42 but has still shown a freak ability to play the game at a high level. Colts fans will be up in arms about it (the cheating past, the most heated rivalry, etc.)

That's interesting, cuz of the QBs currently in the league he's like my 4th option. I'd rather have Stafford, Carr, and Cam over him (in that order). Assuming he does come here, it's for a year, two at the most, that essentially puts us -when he retires- where we are now, again. With no quarterback.

Keep in mind, Cowherd loves the Patriots and Colts. He has for years. I can see why though because both franchises are winners.

Cowherd is an absolute tool.  He says anything that comes to his mind. 50% of what he says is wrong and the other 50% is just ridiculous

There is too much animosity there for this to ever happen.

 

And I think I'd rather not anyways.  Even if Brady was fully committed to it.  He's been on a pretty big decline, which is expected given his age.  He's likely to be worse in 2020.

He loves Tom Brady and loves Ballard. Can't blame him :thmup:


Do I buy the Brady to the Colts idea?   No.   But I don’t see the need to jump all over the guy.   He hasn’t said anything negative about us.    
 

Colin Cowherd is NOT Skip Bayless.

Cowherd has always liked Luck and he loves Ballard. I have no problem with him.

    • As for my grade...I think C to C+ is fair. Getting Paye has more overall weight, otherwise I might have been really harsh.   Draft success can be so largely contingent on draft capital. And considering they had a total of (11) Day 2 picks the previous three drafts (9 of which were 2nd rounders)...they had a such a larger margin for error those years.   Not the case this year...and wasn’t really the case in 2017.    Here are my grades:   Paye: A Dayo: D  Granson: C Davis: B Ehlinger: D Strachan: C Fries: C   Davis seems like a decent S depth pick, but I don’t really see the value in the other late picks either. But like you said, I won’t lose sleep over it.   But I have so much cognitive dissonance on Dayo. You see the traits on tape but then do research on Achilles injuries...and I can’t get past it. It’s one thing if you are a vet OT like Fisher, but Dayo’s game is predicated on his athletic traits. Many players do not return to that level.   I do like Paye. But if he doesn’t hit...this could be a Grigson-esque draft in a few years.
    • You guys better make this call a thing when Dayo (and the fans) return to the stadium...   
    • Interesting stuff there. Trey Lance from everything we have heard is a really great kid. He really lights up a room when he does interviews.
    • You and I had discussed that we couldn't figure out what the Colts were trying to do with their personnel.  With this draft, it appears they are trying to run like hockey shift changes with Dlinemen ala San Francisco.   I don't think either one of these guys projects to be a big pass rusher, but both appear to me to me a Jadeveon Clowney type of edge setter and double team takers.  Clowney is a good player.     I agree with you on the Paye and Dayo picks as far as being  year 3 types, hopefully contributors.   I don't see us being better this year.  Paye cannot replace Houston and Autry, and the other guy probably won't be a significant contributor.    I am fine with the LT thing.  I don't think the team could afford to invest too much more draft capital or salary in the Oline.   I still think we need a big weapon on O in the passing game.  I don't think any of our guys can fill this primary, alpha receiver type of role.   The potential problem with this draft IMO, is by the time Paye and Day potentially become studs, we will be paying out the nose on LG and Will, and will still be looking for contributers in key positions.   I think Ballard has done a great job making us competitive, but so far I don't see us rising from 2nd tier team to a 1st tier team unless Wentz is way better than PR.  They will much to your pleasure open up the play book with CW.  Hope it works out.    
    • I honestly think that's the point of this visit.   I'm not convinced that is the case. I think there's a ton of pressure and criticism in the wake of not addressing LT in the draft and he has to publicly commit to the guy that is slotted in at LT1 at the moment. His statements about Tevi have been followed by "but we'll continue to scour the market", which tells me that they're not sold on him at all and will sign a FA if they can get an upgrade over Tevi.
