We really don't know the situation or terms, but it does appear from the extraneous circumstances that we may have got "took" a bit.

 

If you look at his snaps, he played the majority of snaps in 2 early games (two 90+%) then benched, then mid season plays the majority of snaps in two games (one 80%, on 100%), then benched, then played the majority of snaps in two games late in the season, then benched the last two games.

 

In short, it looks and smells fishy, and a lot like snap manipulation. He had the 4th most snaps of CBs, and only 3 snaps behind the 3rd most. So really he was at minimum a #2 on the depth chart who started 6 games. Not getting 6th for that is pretty confusing. Whatever terms were set to enact the "condition", were weak as hell, and too weak for a guy who was a starter the year before.

 

Intelligent, like one filled with stats and facts, instead of anecdotal stuff..  like the one above.

Iowa's  Triston Wirtz!!!

I apologize for spelling this fine young man's name wrong. Its Wirfs, not Wirtz. Plays both Tackle positions. Close to the Iowa College record for weightlifting. A Wrestler, shot-putter, and discus thrower. Fantastic Athlete.  6'5"/ 322 lbs.  A Q clone of a Road Grader.  Put him at RT, Move Braden to RG and Run, Run, Run!!!!  He plays LT best, so he can move over when AC is done.

It's all hypothetical right lol. Unless I missed something, we don't know if it there was a hypothetical guaranteed 7th on the table vs conditional 6th. 

 

IMO, whatever it was, it was bad. Call it a bad decision, bad gamble (trying to get a 6th over a 7th), or just getting taken advantage of with conditions. Either way we lost lost. This whole narrative that Ballard can do no wrong or doesn't make mistakes is pretty silly. Folks act like he's been a GM for 10+ years with an unquestionable history. I really like him, but this whole worship thing is funny.

every single thing you and Jared are saying is hypothetical...  you are both assuming there was another option...maybe there wasn't.  none of us know

Yes, all hypothetical. But what is not hypothetical is getting nothing for someone who turned out to be a part time starter and at minimum a #2 CB on the depth chart.

    • As a Colt fan I hope Rivers balls out. But I have to be honest, I am skeptical about Rivers. I wanted younger, not older.  Personally I wanted Bridgewater and like his contract much more than what Rivers signed for.   
    • I think your point on Fountain here is pretty important to understanding Ballard's off-season strategy at WR.     Initially, I hoped we'd sign a free agent and use a second round pick (preferably 34)...and now it looks like we'll only address WR thru the draft.   Hilton is still young enough to expect a return to form this year.  Campbell, despite the low reps, is expected to emerge and you have to leave space for that opportunity or he won't grow.  Pascal caught 41 balls for 600+ yards....from Brissett.  It's almost a certainty we'll draft a receiver in the 2nd round.  Four roster spots are pretty much locked in.   Back to Fountain...having 2 years in the program, there is every reason to believe Ballard may prefer Fountain as the 5th receiver over an additional drafted rookie or journeyman vet UFA.  I can still see drafting a second WR this year, but am no longer shocked that we didn't re-sign Funchess or chase other UFA receivers.    Ballard isn't neglecting the position, he's staying the course on development so that the young talent is ready when Hilton departs, and the emergence of Pascal last year was as good or better than anything you could expect from signing a middle tier outside free agent to build a bridge to the rookies.
    • Well, since the cap is reportedly going up from $200 to $240 mil, I'd happily hand out contracts to both Nelson and Leonard for $20 mil/year since there will be exactly $40 mil/year of extra cap-room.  Funny how that works out.
