Antonio Gates

Recommended Posts

I read an article saying Antonio Gates considered signing with us last year.  I know he is old, 38 or 39 this year.  Still, with his connection with Rivers, a one year deal may be something to look into.  The article did indicate he not in the mind set to come back but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  Could be a valuable 3rd down TE for us and Rivers.

Once a person gets past 32 they are usually on the downside of their career. Gates will be 40 by the time the season starts. I prefer he stays retired and we draft a TE. We don’t have a TE that we drafted on the team so it would be good to draft talent into this position.

He needs to go sit in his rocking chair and ease into retirement.

Gates is salivating because we have Rivers (his old QB that loved him), a great O.Line, and on paper a good defense. He is just too old to play unfortunately.

    • Reich seems to be a very positive, classy person   Have you heard him trash ...... anyone, ever?   When discussing Ebron.......  no trashing ..... just that they were going in a different direction   I think with Reich, as this type of communicator, you have to measure words and actions to get the complete story.   With JB, The only negative conversation, was that we needed some improved QB play. Other than that it was always very positive.   You would think from press conferences, that JB is only a step away from being a Super bowl QB, which he isn’t    Reich isn’t a liar, he is just a person that communicates ALWAYs in a positive way.   but....  compare the actions   JB we love you but we are drafting a QB, in round 4. JB we love you but we are bringing in an aging QB to start. JB we love you but are keeping a long shot QB on the active roster (CK)   If you are JB, you like the kind words and support but you are getting the message.   We DONT want you to be the starter QB for the Colts...... HAS to be the message that he is getting.   I don’t see JB on the roster next year.     To Patrick Miller   I think folks like to see a long shot make it..... we tend to root for the underdog as a matter of cause.....   Dion Cain, Mike Hart, Chad Kelly, etc, etc,    Is Kelly a starter in this league?  Probably not   Will he be a starter for the Colts?   Probably not   The QB room in 2020 camp will be packed   But......  I STILL hope Kelly does very well in camp.....     I could see a 2022 Eason starter with CK as backup     Lastly, some of the crew is being a bit tough on Chloe..... I agree with 80% of what she posts....    It does change some, but that’s ok......     I am wrong a bunch, so who am I to throw stones?          
    • Getting Houston was addressing that need.    Welcome to the forum by the way!
    • I don’t know, Jordan is the one who introduced Tiger to “those ladies” that caused his divorce, got him hit with a club and began his eventual career slide. I don’t think that would be a good pairing. 
    • I understand why CS has the rookies ranked low but feel that anyone who is a seat filler or not expected to be a starter should not be listed
    • I know of the Simms family since Phil is a Kentucky boy and went to a Ky college
