Merrill Hodge Is An Idiot


Recommended Posts

The biggest factor I see between the two that nobody is talking about is the weapons that each QB will have.

RG3 will have superior weapons by far as of how things are right now. That could make all the difference at

least in the short term.

Yes short term indeed, until the Colts monumental dead cap space clears next year.

Dont want to break your bubble but given the circumstances and how the owner operates and the way today's Colts is, if you are not a fan there isnt much to like.

You're absolutely right...the fact that we're about to draft ANOTHER franchise QB and we're re-shaping the entire team to be more physical than finesse. Oh, and not to mention we just brought in one of the better defensive minds in the league to run the show. Nope, nothing to like there.

Jealousy isn't easy to deal with, is it?

c'mon it is the Redskins, they may have talent, but they are always underachievers.

The only problem with Luck, Griffin and Newton is that the other 2 will be in the NFC and Luck in the AFC. They won't be able to have that rivalry. Luck will need someone else, close to this age. How about Tebow with the Jets or the kid with the Bengals? Actually, Barkley would be a good one since they went at it in college.

As far as throwing distance, I remember the QB challenge that had Peyton in it and it is true. Almost everyone threw between 60-65 yards. Randal Cunningham and Vinnie Testeverde both threw it in the 70's +. I watched him throw 3 times and 'm sure Manning can't throw the ball 75 yards.

I see your perspective on this, but to me, its kind of like the way the Lions owner blew up his team a few years ago after McMillan did everything he could to destroy the franchise (the blowing up is similar, not the destroying the franchise part, although some might argue Polian wasn't doing the club any favors recently). I instantly became a fan, and have been excited to watch that team develop into quality competitors. I'm a long time fan of the Colts, but the recent changes have created curiosity, anxiety, anticipation and excitement in me that I haven't felt for the last 3+ years. It's like I'm a kid on Christmas morning, and I'm chomping at the bit to open this present to see what I got.

I think both guys have the physical skills. The part that concerns me is the decision making ability. If you look at the great QBs they not only make the adjustments before the snap but they can run through their progressions, pick the right receiver (most of the time), move in the pocket when needed, and not make stupid mistakes. Too many guys over the years that have had the physical skills have failed as NFL QBs due more to decision making than anything else IMO. So I want the guy that makes the best decisions.

I wouldnt say RG3 has weapons only for a short term. they have alot of good young receivers on that team. Terrance Austin and Leonard Hankerson showed alot of promise last year and that was with a sucky QB in grossman. with RG3 i think they could turn into pro bowl receivers.

I watched the whole pro day except for the first few throws,He was incredible esp. with the wind.The 70 yd. throw was impressive.I really like Luck better than any QB Ive seen in a while.We really got some good fortune on this kid.Im pumped.

Hey everyone Redskins fan here. I've been reading this thread and i think most Colts and Redskins fans feel the same way and that is that Luck fits well in what the Colts wanna do an RG3 fits well in what the Skins want to do. I think the bottom line is both players will be great and I'm happy to be getting one of them. They are both high class young men that our both super smart and both ready to be the face of a franchise. No matter what happens whether Mr. Irsay does what everyone thinks and drafts Luck or shocks the world and drafts RG3 Im gonna be a happy man. The best news is even in all the professionals and media's evaluations it seems they nit pick over who is better but all say they are gonna be great. As a skins fan and all the terrible Qb's Ive witnessed I can finally say I'm happy. I still can't believe you guys go from Peyton Manning to Andrew Luck or RG3 it's unbelievable anyways thanks for reading and HERE"S TO AN AWESOME SEASON.

Even though we under rebuilding I still thinks is gonna be a awesome season, I don't care if we loose some games, the new players will make it exciting to watch, and hopefully gives us a picture of a bright future

    • Between Canada and the USA?   I usually drive to Montréal twice a year and was planning on Quebec last summer ....   hopefully this summer.  
    • If Doyle doesn’t retire already had him being cut saving the Colts $5.45 million against the cap next season.  A replacement in FA would be TE Dallas Goedert (Eagles).  In Round 1 am projecting TE Jalen Wydermyer from Texas A&M to be a target.   Both Rhodes and Carrie I project to be unsigned.  RCB Rasul Douglas (Raiders) would be a backup RCB might be a target.  If we had the cap space RCB Darious Williams (Rams) went UDFA to NFL star 11m valuation (15m easily).  Still hold out on adding FS Marcus Williams (Saints) who is playing on a 10.6m tag.  Should get around 4yr/60m 35m guaranteed.   In the end I doubt the Colts sign any of these options and focus on the draft.   I like the Sam Tevi addition and think the Colts got a steal of a deal for him.  Am hoping Fisher is healthy and can start by week 5 giving the Colts an option to trade Tevi to a team that just drafted a rookie LT that is struggling or got injured and need trade capital.  See Will Holden as our 3rd LT and Davenport getting released during cut downs.  One idea is to sign Fisher to his one year contract this year and use additional capital to go after someone younger like RT Brian O’Neill (Vikings).  Was very high on O’Neill coming out of college as a LT.  O’Neill and Smith are two of the best players currently playing RT that moved from original college positions and have flourished.  O’Neill would be a long-shot addition but would create options to mix-n-match scenarios here.  Either way by not drafting a rookie OL that can start we are going to be financially hurting I believe next off-season unless we cut players like Doyle and Stewart with a Post-June 1 designation.  I don’t see the Colts being aggressive next off-season in Free Agency but below is an early look to next off-season have been working on.   FA Adds RT Brian O’Neill (move to LT) 4yr/64m 16m APY with 30m guaranteed.  Option 2: resign Fisher with 2 year extension 12m/15m   Cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m   Resign/Extend LB Darius Leonard -not a true MLB. My original offer 5 years $82.5 million 40m guaranteed  RT Braden Smith 4/58m 30m guaranteed LG Nelson 5 years $85 million (17m) = 15m, 16m, 17m, 18m, 19m – top LG makes 14.781m / yr TE Mo Allie-Cox 3yr/20.8 or 6.93 APY (5.5-6.8-8.5)  WR Zach Pascal 3/24 8m APY (5.4-8.6-10)  LDE Tyquan Lewis 3/11.4m 3.8m APY (2.2m, 3.8m, 5.4m)  RB Nyheim Hines 3yr/13.645m (4.55m APY) (base 3.9m, 4.5m 5.65m with 1.35m roster bonus each year) Similar to A. Eckler  DE Kemoko Turay 1/2m  LT Will Holden 1/1.4m 1 C Joey Hunt 1/1.25m 9 RG/LG Chris Reed (OTC eval 6.3m backup capable of 13.4m pay play) signed for 1.127m renew 1/1.75m RG Glowinski 2yr/18m DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 1yr/4m 12.063m cap space IDL Isaac Rochell 2/3-3.5m 9.063m cap space   2022 Early Draft    Edge Kayvon Thibodeaux, Edge, Oregon RD 1 Drake Jackson, Edge, USC – or LB good 2019 RD 1 Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati – all day every day good hand moves and pass deflections RD 2 George Karlaftis III, DL, Purdue – solid 2019 7.5 sacks 1 FF 2 PDs – great field awareness hands for Ints Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan 2019 only decent year 4.5 sacks 2 FFs 6 PDs.  6’6” 269 LBS.  Great catch-up speed RD 2-3   CB   Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU – career year in 2019 6 INTs and 15 PDs.  Low 2020 but FF RD 1 Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida – low tkls, 2-3 INTs/yr improved 2020 with 11 PDs RD 1-2 Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati – 3 INTs each year 2020/2019 and 6-8 PDs RD 1 Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn – 1 FF capable of INTs and decent at PDs 6/11 2020/2019   S Kyle Hamilton, S, ND – hands for INTs and 6-7 PDs/yr RD 1 Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State – sacks, FFs, hands for INTs and 2019 13 PDs RD 2-3   WR Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson RD 2 George Pickens, WR, Georgia RD 1 John Metchie III, WR, Alabama RD 2-3 Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada   LB Christian Harris, LB, Alabama – size, sacks, FF, Int RD 1-2 Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah - size, sacks, FF, Int – low on PDs   OL RG Cain Madden, Marshall Finished top 10 among RGs RT Evan Neal, Alabama R2-3 RT Darian Kinnard, Kentucky R3-4   Come draft day be it Round 1 or Round 2 would like to see the Colts address either WR or CB early but with our Edges I wouldn’t be upset if we drafted someone like Myjai Sanders (Cincinnati).  Realize pay scale always influx and we hope the cap increases at the end of next year and players might just play to bigger contracts.  Good baseline to start with and reason why teams draft rookies to help off-set the rising costs of contract extensions.  
    • As you likely guessed, I think we either re-sign Fisher or re-sign one OR both of Tevi and/or Davenport.   Figured if we couldn’t find a LT that worked for us at pick 54 this year,  we’re likely not going to find one in the 2nd round next year.  I think we’d fill the hole with someone until 2023 and use our 1st in that draft to fill the LT.  But for now, I’m guessing EF.      As to CB, if we had to, we could go corner in the 2nd and TE in the 3rd.  But, for whatever reason, I’m far more optimistic on Rock and Tell than most here.  
    • Believe it or not, some people thought JT was better than Saquan
    • Wouldn't say people didn't think he wouldn't live up to the hype, but about 70% of the board did not like that pick (or at least 70% of the posts were negative).
