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.

    • In Ballard I trust. He is intuitive and a consensus builder. This is a great opportunity to use this decision to refine your offensive strategy. Remember, Reich loves the RPO and what he could do with a mobile QB.
    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB. 
    • If we let Walker Walk, (and I think it’s likely) it’s not because we want an upgrade.   It’s because we simply don’t play him enough.   I think East Street has the numbers in snaps, but I think Walker is roughly playing 25-30 percent of the snaps.   That’s it.    We can't pay him enough for that.   Some other team will PLAY him more so they will PAY him more.    When Walker is off the field, we are either playing a 4-2-5 or a 4-1-6.   Leonard plays basically 100 percent of the snaps and I think Oke is about 55-60 percent.     There is a method to our madness.  
    • I'm surprised some folks want to resign Walker. Imo we definitely need an upgrade.... I'd let him walk.
