I don’t like this at all. We needed to address pressing concerns with that pick.

Love the player. Not too keen on the contract, but we have money so I get it. Hate losing a first without getting any other pick compensation back.

 

Not sure I like this much, but admittedly does make us better

Not saying I like this move, but DT was a need

We just doubled the number of All-Pros on our defense.

No not at all. This guy plus Houston should be an instant upgrade to the DL

This tells me Ballard didn't like Brown or Kinlaw and he thinks he can get a QB at 34 rather that's Eason or Hurt

The amount that this will help Leonard and Walker can't be understated either.  Buckner will demand a double team.

Plus we get Turray back

Or he trades back up

You’re right , now that I think of it DL probably would have been the first pick anyways and we still have 2 second round picks.

Very good player. I'm not sure he's worth either that contract or that pick... let alone both at the same time... Oh well... I guess we could do worse. :dunno:

I hate giving up First round picks. However this is what I wanted. I wanted a DT and we got one of the rumor is true.

I knew who Buckner was but never knew how good he really was.. guess a lot of y’all like it so I guess he’s pretty good!

No gurantee that either brown or kinlaw become all pro talent. Plust Buckener is only 25.

 

Passing on Love and possibly herbert might sting but the difference between them and Eason/Hurts/Fromm is probaly not as big in ballards opinion

Not digging it much. He’s been good but not second best to Aaron Donald good in his career. This is a lot of money/draft capital when we don’t have our QB. I reckon we could have gotten Chris Jones on his franchise tag for the same price for a better player.

Don't like this at all especially since we gave up our 13th overall pick. I would've thought we could've made this deal for 34. We could have gotten someone like Kinlaw or possibly even Brown on a cheaper contract than Buckner at 13. 

 

I think Ballard could have possibly gotten Chris Jones for a little less. This move seems a bit desperate to me. Now I think it's safe to say we all have very high expectations of Bucker making this DL great.

Maybe this coupled with AC for 2 more years means AL is coming back for the SB run. :)

The QB issue is eventually going to undo this direction from leadership.

 

I'd be okay with this if I thought the team was closer.

    • Just maybe if you were in the very high risk category you might have a different opinion?  Without getting into my medicals I fall into the most at risk category. I also have a 89 year old mother in law living in my house. Put yourself  in those shoes and maybe you wouldn't think it is a joking matter?     
    • I don’t think it will be a lot of them opting out. But I could see a few. The nfl is taking a lot of precautions. Players won’t even be able to be in the facility with a cough or sneeze without a couple negative tests.  I think we will see positive tests with the initial screening but hopefully players will be smart off the field and after those initial tests there won’t be many. I read the eagles are going to be testing all coaches and quarantining then until they are all tested. They are even testing their family members that live in the house with them.    Sone of the stuff like no jersey swaps is dumb. If those players are all tested and cleared before games they should be able to have jersey swaps. Players are laughing at this silly rule.   The nfl is allowing teams to have 2 fan events with players in the preseason as long as protocols are followed. No fans at training camp.   With revenue sharing its probably good to let fans in some stadiums if local governments say its ok. Even if all can’t. That helps with revenue. If stadium workers and fans wear masks they can have 15 to 20 thousand pretty easily socially distancing.    What will be interesting if there is a vaccine by the end of the year or January maybe playoffs can go back to full stadiums. 
    • Adams house is in a part of Carmel that has had problems with the Lucas Estate (also in carmel).  The Lucas hold a lot of events for pay.  It's like a full on event venue.   He's remonstrated against it as have a lot of his neighbors. He said they cannot sit outside without having to deal with whatever music the event plays.   The city has tried to get the Lucas to stop running a business in a residential area but, they keep doing it.   I'm not surprised he is moving to Zionsville.  He can afford it and it is adorable
    • You had to get serious, didn't you?  No harm.   For what it is worth, neither what you have been told nor what I have been told, due to lack of consistency, is going to factor into the NFL plans. They will have their own set of doctors that they trust to make their decisions based on and we just sit back and watch, I guess, if there is football.   Otherwise, no masks necessary changed to masks needed, Ibuprofen not working to Ibuprofen is OK, transmission through air is highly possible to maybe possible, 3 feet to 6 feet of distancing but 12 feet necessary if the person is sweating and running in front of you, surface transmission is highly likely to less likely, the evolving information for an evolving virus is endless and you will go crazy trying to settle on certainty about symptoms and precautions.   The only certainty is that there is a virus and people have died w.r.t Covid-19, enough to get our attention. Keep your immune system supported and do the best you can on that front.
