Guessed wrong.

 

Did I miss something? Did the Colts sign someone else or did Clowney sign somewhere already?

Well, I was wrong on my Brady prediction. I wonder if it was Bill or Tom who ultimately decided to walk away?

Bets are on Tom walking away. Bill is the ultimate robot, with no emotions tied to decisions, it is brutal business with him. Remember when Irsay paid Freeney for the last year even though he did not fit Pagano's D, paid Peyton while he rehabbed in 2011, paid Luck all of last year, none of that happens in New England, it is cold business out there. When his time was up, Tom experienced the same thing that a lot of marquee free agents experienced, like Seymour, Chandler Jones, Deion Branch etc.

It's over though. The Rivalry isn't back on. It's over. The Colts haven't beaten him in a decade. That's no small part of my metric for success around here. Too bad. But it's over. Fine.

 

This crossed my mind last year when Luck retired, and it's cemented now.

 

We're never going to get over that hump, because that specific hump is gone .  There is no longer a Belichick/Brady Pats Juggernaut to overcome for that ultimate achievement like we had in 2006 (replaced by the Reid/Mahomes Chiefs? we'll see... but it's just not the same).

 

The Polian/Dungy/Manning Colts beating the Belichick/Brady Pats in the 2006 AFCCG was probably the best sports moment of my life.  I was hoping beyond hope for something similar with the Ballard/Reich/Luck Colts.  :Cry:

Thinking the same thing Lucky... It’s truly the end of an era on so many levels.

True. I am living through my 2nd favorite team now, with Mahomes and the Chiefs. Since Luck and Peyton, Mahomes has me the most excited to watch their games.

Brady should have just tweeted this:

"You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your #in' fingers and say, 'That's the bad guy.'"

He is, but he'll never tweet.

 

And we know this is exactly who BB is on the inside.

Not trading for two defensive ends, I just don't see that. Not with who we already have.

First, Clowney can be played all over the DL, and is one of the best run stopping DLs available out there, so him being just a DE in our system is not accurate. Plus, Buckner was not brought here to play DE when we have Houston, Banogu, and Turay, assuming we let Sheard go.

 

I can see that to take our DL to another level. Seahawks of 2013 went 7 or 8 deep in quality bodies, not just in quantity. If Dodds and Ballard have that vision, I can see that.

So immediately this starts who will be the qb in New England. Does Bill go the Andy Dalton route and stick to what they do well...or does he go out and get Winston and try to turn him into the #1 pick he should have been. Heck he may even trade for Newton and change up the whole system.

 

The other thoughts I had...there are still two HOFer free agents out there....I could see Bill Jedi mind tricking either Brees or Rivers to come in and walk into a situation with a winning organization.

From what Ive seen they actually think rather highly of the backup, Jarrett Stidham, who's basically the guy they brought in to replace Jacoby Brissett.  They might even just go with him, if they know they're going to need to take a step back anyway.

I think Bill would get great satisfaction going against everyone and taking another low draft pick to the SB.

I get that, I don't disagree. But that is a lot invested in just two positions/people.

 

It doesn't fit in with what Ballard has done, however admittedly  Ballard has been working out of his team building/foundational phase and we don't know hat his second phase looks like.

Yeah, when Andy Reid gave Alex Smith to the Redskins after seeing 1 game of Mahomes vs the Broncos in 2017 at the end of the season, no one knew Mahomes would get that good in such a short time. NE has a good system where Jimmy G did well in his limited time, Matt Cassel did well, and if there is one guy I would not bet against, it is Belichick, he will be a pain in the neck for the AFC as long as he is running the show there.

someone mentioned that getting Buckner felt like a “One piece away” type of move. Is getting Brady that final piece of the puzzle?

Forget Brady he is done anyway whoever pays that man 30+ million is a fool.

I hope he goes to an AFC team that we play this year. We play the Raiders, but I think it would be cooler if he went to LAC, and we ended up playing them in the playoffs.

LAC said they are in the dark about what Tom is doing. More or less Tom stopped communicating.

Brady to Bucs is pretty much a done deal, I heard

The Bucs won't announce the Brady deal till Wednesday.

 

Brady vs Brees twice in prime time, I guess. Not bad, to be honest, the match ups he gets in that division. He probably did not want to end up in the same division as Mahomes and knew he'd have to deal with Belichick in the AFC.

Brady has 2 goals in mind right now. Be like Peyton, to win a SB with a second team and a different head coach. With Arians' offense, I am sure he will put up good numbers too.

    • I agree with this. I think last years team would have been good enough with the addition of Rivers to make the playoffs. He doesn't even need to be all that good. Just consistent. As long as he doesn't try and play hero ball the Colts are in good hands.    Hell... maybe he will surprise everyone with his abilities. He's 38? Honestly a lot of guys were still great at that age (not elite). And I think the media has really unfairly judged him on one struggling season. Which I truly can't understand why.... they need someone to talk down about i guess. 
    • True in Lamar's first year in the league, but not last year.... but even if it was true for last year, I'm just going to leave these stats here:....   L. Jackson 2019 passing stats: 401 attempts  -  3,127 yards (avg 7.8)  -  36 TD  -  6 INTs  -  Passer rating: 113.3   P. Rivers 2019 passing stats: 591 attempts  -  4,615 yards (avg 7.8)  -  23 TD  -  20 INTs  -  Passer rating: 88.5   I know which QB i'd prefer.... especially as this ignores Lamar's value as a runner and elusiveness. Also yes i see your trapdoor emoji, but i get the feeling that other people feel this way..... so i wanted to just crush that narrative.   Also, people please dont get me wrong, i think Phillip will do well with us and is definitely an upgrade for us. I was merely making the point that while he should be great (especially behind our O-line), let's not get too carried away thinking we have one of the leagues best QB's, because we don't. He will do a good enough job to not hold the team back, which is more than we could hope for last year at the position.
    • @Coffeedrinker are you seriously trying to tell me you wouldn’t have D. Watson, L. Jackson or M. Ryan over Phillip Rivers at this point in Rivers’ career?   You’re crazy man!
    • Remember Marvin after he was dinged? This is starting to remind me of literally Watching Marvin’s physical ability decline.  Not quite there yet, but I look at TY’s age and size.... well, heres to hoping he continues to avoid big hits.     The way Ballard has been adding wideouts the last couple years has me wondering if Ballard isn't concerned about 16 game health too.
    • I think if I had stayed in IN when I was beginning to watch baseball it would have been between Reds, Cubs, and Pirates since triple A. But by the time I was 10 I had moved.      When I am in STL next year I will probably try to attend as many of the Cubs/Cards series as possible since there are 10 games and I'm 15 minutes from Busch at that point
