Eating Crow Thread


Recommended Posts

I hate these threads... not because I mind admitting when I'm wrong, it's just I'm wrong so often, I could spend all my time in these threads.

 

Quite frankly, unless you started calling people names or claiming someone else was stupid because they were speculating something different, there is no reason to eat crow.

Let me be the first to enter this as a poster that NEVER thought we would take a QB in this draft.    I have made fun of and bashed anyone who said otherwise (@Chloe6124 sorry neighbor ).  B

First, I said the Colts were more likely to move up than to move down. They didn't move up.   Then Day 2 came, and I said I fully expected them to move down from #34. They stayed there and d

I will eat crow if Pittman and Taylor start day one over Mack

and the bevy of vet receivers in our stable.

 

After watching videos of Ballard and Reich gushing about them,

now I'm thinking I may have to search in the fridge for some

A-1 sauce in a few months.

I think Pittman may start, but I think Mack will be the starting RB for at least the first few games.

I really wanted to be in a thread like this one last season when I kept saying Brissett was not the answer.  I would have gladly eaten crow as I was rooting for Brissett in full.  I think it is good that he got 2 full seasons to showcase what he has, but this will be his last season with the Colts if they keep him.   

In this draft, I thought a WR was going to be taken in the 2nd round along with either a TE or an O-lineman.  I can live with Taylor, but I was wrong so dish out the crow.  

 

I didn't really make predictions in the prior drafts other than expressing that I wanted Nelson at pick 3.   Ballard got him at 6 plus additional picks.  Last years 2nd round picks of Rock, Banogu and Campbell were solid to me.

I think Rivers is going to be good with our Line and the weapons we have now. I just hope our defense improves stopping the pass.

Agreed.  I do believe that Buckner is a huge addition and step towards that improvement.  Hopng the other additions are as well.

Coney Island!

They are open for carryout, wife and I were thinking of picking up a box next week.              I am also pleasantly surprised about how incorrect my draft thoughts were  ……. I will keep my day job

Maybe this exists.

It would be cool if there was a website where you could pick for your team at where they are picking.   It could then track how the players did in coming years.  I'd be interesting.   I may have passed on Taylor and picked KMet.   Not saying it would have been good, but in a couple years we would know for certain.  

Just a thought.

    • I agree what did most pundits say that we had the most complete roster in football last season.  Why, because Ballard built that through the draft for the most part and it hasn't put the team in salary cap hell like many other teams that don't even have the roster that we have so the credit goes to Ballard. 
    • I think the Browns were a lot better team after free agency. Are they championship level no but a lot better. I don't know why Dorsey got fired I thought he was doing a good job trying to make up for no talent.  My point is there are times that you need to dabble in free agency but it is better much better to go the draft rout.  
    • After the 49ers pulled off the exact trade up to the 3rd pick (that I suggested the Colts should do), I would fall over in laughter if they passed on Fields for Jones or Lance.  Fields is just as much the generational prospect as Lawrence.  When you look at the film and compare the numbers it really is a no brainer.  Here’s another Fields stat that puts him above the others.     The average rank of defenses that Fields has faced in his career is around low to mid twenties. Not too many cupcakes or soft touches.  Meanwhile Lawrence, Wilson, & Jones average defensive opponents is in the 40’s or much higher. So Fields put up better career numbers than all of the other QB’s while facing tougher competition week in and week out.     Better career accuracy. Better career rating past his first read (dispelled that lie about him).  Oh and he scored higher on an aptitude test than thousands of other professional athletes from multiple sports who have taken the same test.  Offered a scholarship to Harvard.  Kid is a smart pocket passer who is athletic and can run.  But he has no problem standing in the pocket and delivering accurate throws with conflict happening all around him.    I believe Kyle is just putting Fields to the ultimate test.  He remembers him from his high school QB camp where Fields took the things he learned there and improved his game to the point where he legitimately rivaled Lawrence as the best QB in the country.  Helped turn the best dual threat QB into the most accurate career passer in this draft.  And easily the most fundamentally sound.  That’s growth.    Also Kyle gets to see how Fields handles all of the chatter about Wilson & Jones & Lance being better.  How does he handle the 49ers not attending his first pro day?  How does he handle the leaks attacking his work ethic and commitment?  They could be looking for signs to how he will handle adversity on and off the field at the next level.  So far he’s been near perfect.  The fact he didn’t snap on Orlovsky shows great maturity.  Best QB in the draft. Just pray the Patriots don’t move up to 4th and get him if the 49ers are dumb enough to pass on him after moving up to the 3rd pick. 
    • Yes, I agree with you but I totally believe that Ballard has a plan and will do what's best for our team. I mean he knows better than any of us that he needs a left tackle and a pass rusher he's fully aware of it.  I have total and complete faith in Ballard that he'll put a championship level team on the field come week one. 
    • I’m okay with that, but ideally I’d hope you can trade down and still get Cosmi or Darrisaw. I think getting that 3rd round pick back has to be priority.
