Bosa on Buckner, "Leaves void in SF DL"

Recommended Posts

Buckner stinks and is overrated.   He won't even be starting halfway through the season.  

 

 

Just trying to say the complete opposite of what will be true.  

 

 

 

 

:D

On the "opposite" thing.   

How would a full day of only opposite posts go over on a forum like this one.     It would be tough to get your head around.

For a guy that values draft picks in Ballard, you had to step back and evaluate why he would give up a first rounder, pick No.13 for Buckner. Once you do that, the answer will be clear. Plus, with this Covid-19 stuff and all, I am not sure it is going to be easy for rookie DTs to ramp up their learning curve either.

 

I always felt that with the combo blocks and greater strength of NFL guards in the middle, the DT position ROI from the draft tends to wait longer than the DE position where more often than not, until you make them pay consistently, the rookie DE gets 1-on-1s way more against quicker but not as big NFL OL. The flip side is also true, where you find rookie OTs played more than rookie OGs due to the extra communication and strength needed inside, our Big Q is an exception, not the norm. That is why it will take 2-3 years for good ROI on the DT position from the draft and the ROI tends to be faster with the DE position, IMO (both Bosas, our own Freeney etc.).

 

Long way to explain "Buckner was so worth it." :)

Good thinking. Most of the things people say on this forum are flat out wrong, so let's use some reverse psychology.

Ha ha.  Good stuff folks.

 

I think the Colts took a step back this offseason.   They will probably finish around 6-10 at best.   I can't believe they didn't sure up their running game.

Thing with Buckner is he's not an elite pass rusher (he's a top 3rd of the league type).  The guy gets mentioned with Aaron Donald but he's not in his class in pressures and there's a 4 year track record to demonstrate that.  Also the other concern is simply paying a DT big money and the question of whether it's wise.  So it's not like the trade was a slam dunk especially when the 9ers ended up with Kinlaw as compensation.

 

But in the huddle it's about more than stats.  His leadership is off the charts and the guy is very tough mentally.  And I'm a big fan of players who can play the run.  Donald for example for as amazing as he is tends to open holes at times for offenses in the run game.  Buckner won't do that.  He'll manhandle his assignment and won't win as often but snap to snap you get great consistency.

 

Colts basically elected to pay a DT to ensure they know what they're getting, vice rolling the dice on a guy who will be cheaper on a rookie deal and maybe better.  Hard to fault that move even if I do have reservations on paying DTs.

    • I would expect the Colts to lose a couple more by tomorrow.    I hoping most of the team realizes that IF there is a full season then they have a really good shot to be competitive.
    • I didn't expect Tell to opt out. That's pretty frustrating. I thought he'd be more driven to play since he was young and could earn a starting spot. Oh well. This is going to happen with every team over the next day in losing a couple people.
    • It’s a bummer but not shocked
    • Good thing we signed Carrie. He can play both positions.
    • Understood.  Any person who finds things that don't make sense to them has the right to fill in the facts with speculation and intuition.  That's called connecting the dots, IMO; and that's a big part of life and understanding things as to move forward with decision making.    The idea that is sometimes common on this forum is that people are often criticized for simply expressing an opinion, even a reasoned one, without facts or data to back it up.  That's unrealistic.  Nobody ever has the all of the facts about something before they need/want to have an opinion.     I like your theory about the pain killer addiction.  There was a selfie of him over in Europe where he looked emaciated compared to his normal 6.4 stocky build we're used to, which is how addicts will appear.  Also, while Ballard took a pretty objective look at the situation, which his is job, Irsay was the voice who seemed to leave the door open.  Jimmy had pain killer issues himself and may have been able to see some familiar signs in Luck's behavior and thought there was a greater possibility Luck might change his mind when things cleared up.   With addiction events, people are nervous about falling back into addiction, and the farther removed they are from the incident the more their confidence grows, which can change their outlook and priorities as time passes.
