The Colts need to trade for Gallup right now....


Recommended Posts

Gallup is becoming an afterthought in Dallas.  With Cooper, Lamb, and now Wilson, Dallas might be willing to move him and we desperately need a wide out of his caliber.

 

I'm thinking our 2nd would get him or a third and package player on defense as Dallas needs defense in the worst way. 

 

TY is finito... Love TY but something has been wrong going on 3 years now. We need a wide receiver bad!!

I’ll give you the TY thing. Something ain’t right and really kind of looks like what happened to Reggie Wayne his last year. Drops that don’t happen, not laying himself out. Just looks off

Meh 

Ok you say Meh. Fine. Is he better than TY, Pascal or Pittman? Because that's who we are dealing with. I can easily say TY, Pascal, and Pittman... All Meh. Gallup has speed, size, and route running. If Lamb was not drafted he is easily this years Calvin Ridley.

Haven’t seen enough of him to say. But what I have seen don’t convince me that he’s better than what we have enough to give up a 2nd

The Colts should've been 6-0 going into the bye week. They will be 5-1 at the bye as this pre-bye schedule is cake. Defense is actually playing really well, however we are in severe need of playmakers. We should've known that before the draft. I did. Some others might have as well, but if we are truly going to compete, we need a wide receiver NOW!!

Honestly he is not WR1a Julio, but he can definitely be WR1b. He is one notch below or equal to Calvin Ridley

Rivers hit about 20 different ones today. 

Also, what game were you watching as the only receivers to catch passes today was Pascal and Hilton. You must have accidentally put a zero behind the 2

New QB, new WRs and no off season plays apart in this. That said, I am concerned with TYs rather quiet play

Not to mention their second and third WRs are out hurt and their number one is in the biggest slump of his career.

Won’t matter with Reich and his sketchy play calling. 
 

I agree about the position needing more talent. We have a bunch of JAGs out there. Nobody that consistently gets open and makes plays.

 Two guys who are unproven! How anyone is counting Campbell as a playmaker at this point baffles me

I was NOT a fan of franks play calling today.  Why on earth they are so determine to have Hines run it up the middle is beyond me.  Also he’s not a surprise anymore.  Teams know when he comes in the ball is coming his way and they sit on it.  
 

I feel like they have way over corrected from week two when Hines got next to no touches and Taylor had a big day and now they are trying to force Hines meanwhile Taylor continues to be very productive On the few touches he’s getting.
 

On top of that they need to ditch the second and long draw hand off teams sit on that too.  Use play action more.  The few times they did today they got good plays out of it.

Because Campbell was their best WR in the one game he really played.  Pittman is rookie you have to let them play to become proven.  Very few second round picks walk in and are studs day one at WR.  Take away the off-season program and no pre-season and it’s near impossible.

I dont want to trade any draft picks for who you think is our savior. 

 

That's fair but I don't think Gallup is a savior. He is just really good and we need someone really good compared to the not so good ones we currently have

I would be fine getting Gallup on the team. He is a very good WR and would definitely be an upgrade. However, I would not give a second for him. I would offer a 4th and a player, but that's it. Remember, Deandre Hopkins was traded for a second, WR values aren't that high!

There seems to be no Imagination to the run game at all! Reich believes in his O-Line so much that he just thinks they can overpower everyone.

 

I don’t know what’s up with the RB rotation. Can’t get into a groove like that.

Well with Taylor it works.  Hines not so much.  Wilkins is hit and miss but he is a much better fit for being the number two back behind Taylor.

Sorry. Missed that one catch by Johnson... So 3 receivers then... Still far from 20 different guys 

I believe the op was being a little sarcastic but was counting everyone who caught a pass today.  I think all three backs did, all three tight ends did and three WRs did.  That’s 9.  That’s a lot.

Well to be fair, this post is about the wide receivers... I'm not counting RBs and TEs

Well that poster was and last time I checked their yards catching count just as much as WRs do.  Who cares whose catching the ball as long as someone’s doing it?

If the Falcons keep losing, get Julio for a 2nd at the trade deadline. TY can become a #2 guy like Wayne did in his home stretch.


Another option from a losing team is a guy buried under the depth chart - Curtis Samuel, he shouldn’t cost more than a 5th. I know, I know another Buckeye but he can make plays too and has been healthier than Paris.

    • Braden Smith allowed 1 QB hit and 0 sacks in 2020 with Rivers as QB.    
    • To the bolded, the point of having cap room and draft picks is to add good players. I don't think good roster management necessitates getting rid of good players when their contracts come up, not when you have the resources to keep them. Especially not if you're a good team, with contention in reach.    I think some overstate how "close" the Colts are, but I do think we're closer to being a contender than we are to being a team that should be stocking up picks to reshape the roster. And that's why 'forward-thinking Ballard' has been rolling forward tens of millions of cap every year.   As for the five players taking half the cap, that's not really where the Colts are, or will be. To keep it simple, once you factor in the pending cap increases -- the cap will be at $240m/year within the next two years, from the players' revenue split going up from 47% to 48.5%, from the TV contracts that are projected to nearly double to $10b/year, and from the 17th regular season game + 2 more playoff games -- having five $20m/year players is about 42% of your team's cap. And that's without going into contract structure and doing a year by year analysis of how your spending compares to the projected cap.   Teams with highly paid veteran QBs typically have about 40-50% of their cap tied into 6-8 players. Packers, Saints, Rams, Bucs, Chiefs, Steelers, Titans, etc. Pretty soon, you can add the Bills and Ravens to this list (and they're already close). The Cardinals are already there.    Right now, the Colts only have four guys above $10m/year (Wentz, Buckner, Kelly, Stewart). We have some room to add highly paid players, and still supplement the roster in free agency. Admittedly, my perspective is based on projected dramatic increases to the cap, but I would assume the Colts are factoring in those same increases. And because the Colts have some wiggle room right now, they might use a unique cap climate in 2021 to take advantage of their flexibility over the next 2-3 seasons, and structure contracts in a way that allows them to keep their young guys and still add a couple of veterans in free agency.  
    • I didn't think it that bad.   In hindsight it is.   Colts gave up the 22nd pick in the draft for the previous years #3 pick in the draft. In his rookie year, Richardson had good numbers - 950 yards rushing, 11 TD's, 51 receptions and 1 TD.  That was in 15 games with Weeden as the QB.  I thought with Luck as the QB his game would step up.      Was it a mistake - YES.   Was it the worst trade in Colts history - Not even close.   Let me remind you of this bad trade:   In search of a franchise QB, the Colts swung a deal with Atlanta for the top pick in the 1990 NFL Draft and used the pick on George, a homegrown product from Warren Central. The cost was steep. The Falcons received OT Chris Hinton, WR Andre Rison, a 1991 first round pick and a fifth round pick in 1990. A six-time Pro Bowler for the Colts, Hinton started 80 more games, including a Pro Bowl season in 1991 and an All-Pro nod in 1993.   Rison started for the Colts as a rookie and caught 52 passes in 1989. With the Falcons, Rison exploded, eclipsing 1,000 receiving yards in four of his five seasons in Atlanta. He finished his Falcons career with 5,633 yards and 56 touchdowns before bouncing around with five other teams in his final six seasons. The 1991 first round pick turned into WR Mike Pritchard, who spent nine solid, but unspectacular seasons in the NFL, finishing with 5,187 receiving yards. As for George, he spent four uninspiring seasons with the Colts with a 14-35 record as a starter, more interceptions than touchdowns (46 to 41) and was traded in 1994 to Atlanta.
    • You're kidding right? So Chris Hinton is worthy but AC isn't?
    • He kind of reminds me of someone like Strahan lite. He's so carefree and and goofy that it almost makes you want to worry about if he take the game serious, but then when you see him on the field he looks mean. Nah, we're good. Haha
