If they don’t even have to give up that 12 that is crazy. Maybe he wants to go there so they will take this. 

 

 

Ballard should be able to beat that easily with our 1st and a few other picks.  Maybe the Lions want a number of picks vs. quality of picks?  Regardless I find it hard to believe that Ballard will let that offer beat him.

I love how good people are at reaching conclusions, based on absolutely no information at all.    First, we were definitely getting Stafford. Now, we're definitely not. (And we will definite

Stafford was always my #1 choice among veteran options. (He was my preferred choice last offseason, someone posted a poll and I picked him.)   I'M ALL IN ON STAFFORD YALL.

Analysis of Wentz' contract if traded before March 19.  Looks like $23.7 mill for 2 years basically, then the acquiring team can cut him with no future cap hit.

 

An acquiring team would have Wentz under contract for $98.4 million over four years averaging $24.6 million per year. That would be pretty cost effective provided Wentz could resurrect his career. It would really only be a two-year commitment for $47.4 million because of the guarantees. After 2022, the acquiring team could exit the deal without any dead money or residual cap charges.

Im sure its more of the fact the Lions are going to send his team of preference. If SF is it, it sounds like they are accommodating him?

Has anyone mentioned Jared Goff possibly? I'd welcome that. 

 

I honestly feel like we're one of those rare cases where the team is built in a way where we don't need elite QB play to make it to the SB (which is encouraging). We only need above-average with willingness and arm strength to throw downfield, imo. Our run game is respected enough to make those PA shots high percentage. Jacoby lacked the willingness, Phil lacked the strength. I think any of these guys we're mentioning will put us over, honestly.

I did in a different thread.  I don't know what his contract would be like though.

I just read this story on Sirriani comments on Wentz. Interesting that he did not commit to Wentz. Went on and on how they have two QB. Are they really going to have a QB competition or dump one of them.

There may be other factors.   Stafford could have a preference.  While Indy is a good football situation at the time, Indianapolis is not a desirable destination for most people.   Especially when you have the money Matt has.   

The Lions GM (Holmes) and the 49rs GM (Lynch) may be friends enough to keep the 49er destination open.

Between the old OC being the coach in Philly now, and Franks connection with Wentz and Superman telling me my read on his game is off..

 

Yeah, that might happen if the Stafford thing does fall through. I hope it doesn't. 

 

The Eagles aren't going to trade Wentz this year, so don't worry about it.

If Stafford really is living already in so cal I can see why SF might be his preferred stop. Ballard most likely is going to have to move to another option and it won’t be as good as Stafford.

I dunno where you live, but it's like 19 degrees outside right now. No!

 

Just five minutes...

 

(I live in SoCal. It's been 50 degrees for the last week, with some rain. Miserable... :) )

Maybe not go outside but take some time away from the phone or computer.

I would like to see Stafford in Indy and he has expressed his choice as the Colts being his #1 destination. So, hopefully this would be the case, but any given Sunday as they say, so a lot of speculation in the air right now.....But I sure would like to see Eason with his cannon arm flinging it out there.

Where did he express the Colts as his first choice?

I think they brought Sirriani in to restore Frank system and to also get Wentz on the right track. As he says in the interview Frank had him watching extensive film on Wentz since 2018. Then he makes the comment that he will be heavily involved with the QB position. Personally i think he will try to Turn Wentz around. Based on his comments at this time i dont think he sees Hurtz as anything but a back up. He was much more in depth about Wentz. However Wentz didnt play well so you just cant hand it over. Philly had a bad O line this year i believe. That wasnt the case the year they won the Superbowl. I think Nick will upgrade the OL and the talent around Wentz. I dont see a trade.

John Clayton mentioned it on JMV. I don’t believe it though. Let’s be real. SF has much better WR and offensive weapons.

well that stinks.

 

Think we will just sign Jimmy after he is released?

Yuck. We can’t match if that is true what SF is offering. DJ mentions here a lot of teams like the second and third round picks rather then ones.

What will it take to get up to two or three. Can’t we outbid teams that are higher then us in the draft. If Watson would go to Miami there is the third pick unavailable for trade.

if Stafford goes to SF it increases chances of QB falling in draft

    • RBs are devalued these days. APBs if elite, can have better value than a RB2. Hines could be elite if use the right way IMO. If we're going to let a guy like Mack, who we drafted, walk and test things.... I think we'd let Hines do the same. And given that our new RB1 was very good at catching, the need for Hines isn't as big, so the leverage shifts a bit.   I love Hines, and hope we resign him. If Taylor stays healthy at RB1, and Campbell finally stays healthy at slot, I can see Ballard telling him to test the market. Hope he blows up, but that may mean he asks for too much lol.    And I don't care what Reich says. Our RBs are not interchangeable, and Hines isn't a RB1 type of guy. He's best used as an APB.
    • Yup. I would have loved to resign Houston, but reduced his snap counts. That's basically what they tried to do with Kerrigan last year, it just didn't help. I think it would absolutely help Houston.   I read this (below) article from Mock on Stampede Blue last night. It draws from Hicks and another guys. I thought it was pretty lazy lol. https://www.stampedeblue.com/2021/5/5/22420698/claims-the-indianapolis-colts-are-worse-than-a-season-ago-premature-overstated   It left out intangibles. It brought up that sacks were higher vs poorer teams, but that's the case for every DE or 3T. It also said both Autry and Houston benefited from Buckner's presence. IMO, there's only so much to eat, and adding Buckner means there's less to eat. It also didn't address the fact that we are the 2nd least blitzing team in the league, which doesn't help in the pressure category. And didn't mention that Buckner had arguably his best year ever despite having his lowest snap count ever. Might that have something to do with the DEs? lol.  Also ignores the fact Houston was still top 10 in pass rush win rate, which I believe is vid analytics driven instead of subjective eye grading. 
    • That's why I think it was a wasted pick. Weak arm, poor pocket presence. If they just wanted competition, there  are FAs available on the cheap. Heck, I'd take Hoyer who took 1M last year. He'll likely end up signing somewhere for the vet min, and wouldn't have costed a draft pick. Just a prediction. Has happened every year, and will happen again every year lol. Just part of the entertainment. I like Dayo a lot, just not this year coming off an injury with other needs.   On Granson. He's a Burton clone that doesn't block as well. Just envision Burton, or a big-slot WR. Doubt we ask him to block much.    On SE. If he makes the 53, that means Eason was a bust and total waste of a pick. Due to his lack of traits, I'd be very surprised if he made the 53.  Love Paye. Really like the long term value of Dayo but less than enthused about the pick for 2021 production given other needs and injury. Doubt Granson will have a big impact this year either. Could be wrong.    The Fries pick was OK. Low risk, low expectation. IMO, will need time to develop on the PS. Flex guy, but pretty meh physical traits. 
    • After watching the last episode of "With the next pick" I think Hines will be resigned, because he isn't a running back, he is a weapon, and a unique one. I think he'll have a nice long career as a Colt. Don't know what the future holds for Mack, but I defo can't wait to see him on the field again
