Offseason Dreaming.

Recommended Posts

We pick up FAs DE Clowney and CB Roby or Bradburry. Draft Kinclaw, QB Gordon or Fromm, WR Claypool, and best talent available after that. Oh and find a way to trade away Brissett and get rid of Hoyer. Let Kelly and our Drafted QB battle it out to start.

Clowney is grossly overrated

Depends what you call overrated. 8-10 sacks a year and an elite run-stopper is fine with me. :thmup:

Id like a starting D.   Houston-Autry-Kinclaw-Clowney. Okereke-Walker-Leonard. Roby-Hooker-Willis-Desir. Moore for Nickle

Replace Roby with Damon Arnette in the 2nd round and you have my exact sentiments.

Don't forget Leonard Williams is a FA too. 

My aunt is a Jets fan, so I know them well, and Leonard Williams is absolutely terrible. He's an average run-stopper with no pass-rush ability that did nothing after getting traded to the Giants. Absolute bust at this point.

Do you know how many sacks Clowney had this year?    I believe the number is 3.

 

Do you know how many seasons Clowney has had 10 sacks?   I believe that number is...   0.   As in zero.

 

Are you ready to pay a minimum if 5/100 for that?   How about 6/120?   It may take that much.

2017 he had 9.5 sacks. 2018 he had 9. He had an off year last year. He is an elite run stopper as well. I would give him 5/100 yes. Probably not 6/120. Everyone overpays in FA and he's 27 years old.

Trade for Carr. Keep Brissett and Kelly as back ups.  Sign Ngakoue. Draft Kinlaw.  Take 2 WRs in the draft.  Sign Austin Hooper. Sign Byron Jones.

My off season dream is 

 

Upgrade QB (draft or FA) 

Get a legit 3T (draft or FA)

 

Everything else is gravy. If I can add gravy, I'd take an OT somewhat early, I'd replace both Funch and Ebron with Chase Claypool, take thumper AJ Dillon late, a speedy project CB from a small school, and a late round speed WR from a small school.

Two good years.    Two good years out of six.    The other four years are nothing special.

 

I’m not saying JC is a bad player, but he rarely gives you your money’s worth.  I think he’s far more reputation than he is substance.   He doesn’t strike me as a Ballard type signing,  but you may be right.   Players of his caliber rarely get on the market, so maybe we go after him?

There was a cbssports article today that said the Colts and Giants are interested in Clowney. So it very well may happen.

Pipe dream but I love it. I would also like to add a big move the chains type RB via the draft or FA. I like our trio but it would be nice to have another Robert Turbin type RB that almost always guaranteed us a 1st down every time we only needed 1 or 2 yards.

Yes, I agree it's mine to. I still think we get Rivers and draft a QB.

Well said. Clowney is a good player but is overrated. Hopefully the Colts pass on this opportunity. Instead, how about Ngokoue and Austin Hooper for off season pickups; draft Love and a top WR along with a 3T with the first 3 picks, and its off to the races!

If we get Rivers, an idea I’m vehemently against, it definitely signals that JB and Hoyer is gone. It could mean that we draft another QB or allows a safety net to allow Kelly to attempt to win the job but if he still has more growing to do, the team feels safe with a Rivers type guy. I just don’t see Rivers (@25 million+) a good solution and I don’t feel as he is a mentoring type team player. As nauseated as I would be seeing him, I’d much rather add Brady as a 1 year gap and mentor to the new QB of the future.

Clowney, definitely overrated and gets injured a lot. Match Ynagouke's franchise offer and you'll have a dominant D-line with drafting Kinlaw or Gallimore.

    • This whole Chad Kelly phenomenon on this site is fascinating 
    • Anthony Walker. Now or never.
    • Don’t feed the trolls.   We have an ELITE Dt. We have an ELITE Lb.   If the ends can generate a little pressure our D could be lights out. Add in the fact our o-line should be great and produce a strong run game - keep the D fresh.   Bold Prediction - Colts finish with a top 5 D.
    • I'm sorry,  I've said this before,  but I see you added more material here and you've completed misunderstood this.   First,  there are no writers for the on-air talent.   None.   The talent writes what they want to say.   I even contacted a friend who works at ESPN for the last 30 years.   He says all on-air talent writes what they say -- period.   And thre is no company position on various issues.   So, for example, on al the debate shows you talked about,  the hosts say what they want.   No writer writes what to say for them.      Here's what your article is talking about.   The company is clearly on the liberal side.   They've hired in the past a bunch of Conservatives who wanted to say whatever they wanted to say.  Mostly about politics in the real world.   The name Curt Schilling might be familiar.   He had been warned repeatedly about talking about real world politics that have nothing to do with sports.   He kept doing it and basically dared the company to do something.   He thought they wouldn't.   They did and eventually he was let go.      ESPN is trying to stay away as best as they can from real world politics.   If oyu want to point to Conservative political views,  fine, you'll get no argument from me.   SPOILER ALERT:  That's going to take a huge hit on Wednesday, 5/27,  in the aftermath of the dead black man in Minneapolis and the black man in New York who a white woman called the politce on and lied about what he was doing (caught lying on tape), as well as the jogger in Georgia who was shot and killed months ago and the video has now surfaced.  Outraged professional athletes are now loudly speaking out.    That means ESPN is going to talk about the real world even thought most of their viewers may not like it.   But you have to cover what the athletes are doing and saying.   Many people here (most?) think ESPN doesn't like Jim Irsay and the Colts.   Do certain anchors, hosts, reporters have issues with us?    Maybe,  possibly.    But there is no corporate position on Irsay or the Colts.  All on-air talent is free to say whatever they want to say.   No one tells on-air talent what to say when it comes to day-to-day sports.   To be clear,  ESPN doesn't want anyone trashing the sports they cover or hurting the professinal relationships.   If you're going to attack the commissiner of a sport,  then you had better have more than just an opionion.   You better have some substance to back it up.    Former NBA Commish David Stern was legendary for calling up the head of ESPN and SCREAMING about things he heard said about the NBA on ESPN that he didn't like.     You wrote that there's plenty of things on the internet to support your view.   Please feel free to take another crack at it,  because the first article doesn't support your position.    It's taking about something different,  how ESPN doesn't want the real world of politics infringing on the day to day coverage of sports.   Some things can't be stopped.   More women in pro sports.   Gays in sports.   How athletes react to real world injustice.    But if Curt Schilling wants to spew hate about Muslims, which he did,  or talk about transgender bathroom laws,  that's going to lead to the unemployment line, which it did. What do those issues have to do with sports?   Last thought:   I try as often as I can to explain the world of the media to people here.   30 years in the business so I should be able to to.   Frankly,  I take no pleasure in strongly opposing your views here.   In fact, no one is more surprised than me.   Because, quite honestly,  I think you've had an incredibly long stretch of really top notch posts for many months here.    I think you've seriously rasied your game and I find myself in agreement with many of your views.    And if I haven't given you a ton of likes then shame on me.   I try to reward good posting.  I find your posts smart and well reasoned.   I enjoy reading your views.    And then we hit this thread.   And I did a double-take when I saw who posted about the media.  So please take this as the compliment that it is intended.   I'm a fan of yours.   Just not here on this particular subject.   If you have other comments, or questions,  I'm happy to continue this discussion....   my apologies for the length of ths post.   Just so much to respond to.   NCF
    • He is allowed his opinion just like the rest of us. Based on where we are, I think he will be way off the mark.    But this will be a very strange season if it happens, so who knows.    We have all been watching this stupid league for many years and we should know not to take anything for granted.   Other team improve as well, you know.   I'm hoping for top 10 though.
