Unfortunately there is only one Bill O brien 

Make a trade with Andrew Luck's wife to get his rights

Posted Images

I don't think we get anyone big at all. But if we did, DE would be my biggest want.

 

With Pittman coming back, and Johnson emerging (assuming he stays consistent), I'm pretty OK with WRs 1-4.

 

I just don't know abut Gallup. He's medium size and medium to OK fast. Great production last year though. I sure wouldn't complain. IMO, it would be un-Ballard like to grab him. 

 

I could see us picking up a RB if the right guy was available for a decent price.

Nope the guy is crazy and was a terrible teammate in Minnesota

That's really not fair to a guy who it looks like has handled his mental health issues and put them behind him for a while now

That is true, I don't know where he is at mentally now.

Sounds good to me, but doubt they are available, although Houston let Hopkins go, so I guess anything can happen.

I'd be fine with this. If the team can handle a possible distraction like Chad Kelly, they could handle Griffen assuming he's taking care of himself. My only issue with him is his age (32). Still seems to have some gas in the tank though. He's only on a one year deal, so not really sure what it buys Dallas.

I don't see it being a pick high enough to really impact a QB trade. I could see them however using him as a trade for a QB. A Griffen for Fitzmagic trade would help both, but not sure Miami values a one year DE right now. Maybe a team like LAC. Any team who's not in the playoff hunt really doesn't benefit.

I would like to trade away Jacoby for draft capital and use that pick and trade up in next year draft for a QB.  Rivers isn’t the franchise QB he is a stop gap for us.  We aren’t going far in the playoffs anyways not trying to be negative but we won’t.  I’m not saying tank the season but don’t waste our picks for anymore players.  I can see if we are 1-3 players away from a Super Bowl but unfortunately we are not there yet.

Thielen has helped Cousins produce a success rate of 66.7 on all red-zone targets, good for the best rate in the NFL, along with a total red-zone line of 15-of-21 for 134 yards and eight TD passes.

I would make the trade if we get good value (1st or 2nd round pick), but many fans, especially those living in MN would not be pleased. He is a Minnesota native who grew up a Vikings fan and went undrafted. He is very popular in MN. He is also an excellent receiver who runs good routes and catches almost everything thrown in his direction. I think I would prefer keeping him.

 

I am willing to trade everyone with 4 or more years experience except Danielle Hunter, Kendricks, Dalvin Cook, Harrison Smith and Thielen.

Ha... We actually do have his rights at the moment. If he were to unretire he'd still be a Colt. 

 

I'd be happy to pick up a defensive end.

If not for the Bengals owner being a hard ball, I'd go after Carlos Dunlap for a 4th or 5th round pick.

 

I would talk to the Panthers about Curtis Samuel, and the Eagles about Zach Ertz. They will definitely add value to our offense as the year goes on, IMO.

I doubt they do it with Turay coming back. Ballard usually stands pat at the trade deadline. The Mike Evans thing is interesting though.

Who is Ertz going to replace now that Burton is starting to produce? Get rid of Doyle maybe? Ertz, Cox, and Burton would be nice.

Doyle can still remain in line TE and Ertz and Burton rotate at pass catching TE. Burton is not an every down/high downs player like Ertz can be, IMO, given his history.

So what happens with Cox who is better than just about all of them except Ertz.

I kinda doubt we do anything at all. And not sure Turay is ready. The pick up of Carter to the 53 I though signaled they might not be confident in the timing of Turay's return. And I'm sure once he does return, it will take a while for him to get back to game form.

 

Any pick up though, would have to be a good $, skill, timing, and needs fit. With Pittman coming back soon, not sure WR in the conversation either. Whatever happens, I'm not opposed at all to a quality add.

Burton to me is more slot and HB, than TE. While I agree Doyle is less dynamic a pass catcher than some, he's always been highly effective catching the ball. He runs great routes and moves the chains. Mo IMO is undervalued here, and needs more of the detached snaps. Hoping his snap counts go back up.

    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder.
