I don’t know who this guy is?   But I don’t think he has much inside info.   His info sounded much more like opinion than anything else.    I found it all to be very, very meh....

 

No offense....  

Yeah, outside of his RB coach hit, the rest of his tweets have been very, as you said, meh.

 

 

He hedges his post and gives himself room to backout. Essentially saying nothing.

 

Not knocking anyone for posting it,  because I didn't knock anyone for posting Fosh tweets, but if I'm being honest I believe Fosh over Jason. Just is what it is at this point.

I’m totally good that you recommended people listen.  My not being wild about him has zero impact on your recommendation.  Keep doing that.   I just didn’t find his info well sourced or insightful.  I think it’s mostly opinion.   I don’t feel like I learned anything new or credible that I haven’t read here before. 
 

Just my observation...

 

All good :thmup:

Need to remember the colts can want to sign someone but it ends up not working out. All he is doing is giving insight.  As he has said intentions don’t mean they will. He isn’t making things up. Just giving insight on what the colts are thinking or trying to get done. Things don’t always work out.

Here are the cliff notes

 

- Colts and Rhodes wanna get a deal done.

- Autry and Carrie are right after Rhodes on the re-sign list

- They believe Ballard's main focus in free agency is to improve the pass rush and that LT makes more sense to address in the draft. 

- Colts would like to get Hilton back, but will allow him to test the market.

- They don't think the colts will bring back Houston and Mohammed.

I've listened to him before. Hit or miss, and more opinion than source. I like his opinions most of the time though.

 

IMO, they'll try to bring back Rhodes as the #1 priority. There are competing reports on Houston, and I think they'll try to get a deal done. Folks that want to let him walk are completely ignoring the stats, health, and value ($/production). Sure he's aging, but the production and win rate is still clearly there. I understand the fascination with Watt and all due to the name, but some of the stuff here makes me question how much awareness folks have (age, production, health). Autry and Carrie make a lot of sense too and neither should demand a lot. Autry is simply a great value in terms of $ and production (not to mention he can float), and Carrie is a great NB backup, who allows Moore to float to CB when needed. 

 

We basically have 43M and 2 early draft picks (3 if we trade back) to fill 2xDE, CB1, LT, and WR1. That's 5 expensive positions. It's going to be interesting to see what CB does in the draft. IMO it'll probably be fluid. It's a great T and WR class, OK CB and DE class. If a particular DE falls, I think CB will be very tempted, and if not, trades back for two 2s or and early 2nd and early 3rd. Out of that list, TY is my last FA priority and would have to be a tremendous value.

 

MIKE and TE3 are next on the list, but we have options, and neither are high draft capital or high priced re-signs/replacements.

 

I just hope most of the many questions are answered pre-draft.

Totally makes sense to address LT in the draft and Pass rush in free agency.... Also a rumor floating around than Von Miller might be either on the trade block or a surprise cap casualty cut. I'd be shocked if it did happen, but even if there is a remotely tiny chance that he is available i'd hope to god that we at least investigated it....

Von Miller on that D-Line with Buckner as well..... look out.

I don't get how the Packers and Steelers are players in this. Their in cap hell. They can't invest in JJ who is most likely gonna ask for somewhere around 12-15 mil and still fill their roster.

They just redo Big Ben's huge contract and they can get it done. The same is true with with the Pack and their QB.

Doesn't matter. They still need to fill their roster. You can't do that with someone getting 15-16 mil offers.

Call me crazy but I think it makes more sense for JJ to go to a 3-4 defense, and not the Colts.

 

Packers, Rams, Ravens and Buccs make the most sense without looking at cap space.

We so need a defense up here.

It's a pipe dream. It's not happening.

You understand Watt has has a say in this, right?    It’s not because we offer the most, or we want him the most. 
 

JJ Watt has to want to be with Indy more than any other team.  That’s how this works.   If JJ wants to go elsewhere then it doesn’t matter what we say or offer. 
 

Just want to make sure we’re all on the same page....

I was talking about him going to Pittsburgh. I don't think the Colts will offer him the amount of money he expects. Tennessee is more likely.

I understand...    and I don’t think I disagree..,,

 

I was only commenting on your previous post which amounted to....   if we want him enough, we’ll get him.   I was just saying it’s a little more complicated than that.    That’s all.

Too late, he signed with the Cards.

I’m happy for JJW....   but it turns out money was more important than he let on.   Originally it leaked that money was less important.   That the chance of winning was the most important issue.   Well...   didn’t JJW just sign into the number one most difficult division?   The NFC West has Ari, Sea, SF,  and the LAR.   Nothing easy about that. 
 

Plus, Tom Pellisaro of NFLN, reports Watt’s agent told teams the bidding started at $14m a year, or don’t even bother.   
 

I don’t care that he may have gone to the highest bidder.  I only care that he said one thing, yet did the opposite.  Rubs me the wrong way a little. 
 

Good luck to JJ...

I doubt that it would be a problem for most teams that want to sign him. They always seem to navigate around the cap space. I wasn't even taking into consideration that Watt would want to play there. I assumed that was a given. Phoenix got him and I think that is an excellent choice. They have another very good DE so it will be hard to double team either one of them.

    • Is that (Farley) the guy that had lumbar micro discectomy surgery  recently? Even if he does recover well and gets in condition quickly enough to make training camp, there will be teams that will still be wary.  The reason is longevity, and accelerated degenerative issues concerning his back. On the other hand, didn't a certain GM/Team select Bob Sanders in the 2nd round of a draft knowing his playing style would possibly (likely!) shorten his career? Likewise picture another team taking a LB with serious knee/nerve injury with foot drop? (Jaylon Smith).   There are pluses, and minuses, in taking such players.    
    • We've got some decent value at the 5 and dime store.   Great bargains Rhodes Moore   Good bargains TJ Carrie Wilson
    • They are talking about next year's picks, which one (either 1st or 2nd) is conditionally going to Philly. Doubt they can contractually use either in a trade for this year (unless it's with Philly). Perhaps there's contract language that says we can deal our 2nd, but if we do, Philly would automatically get our 1st.
    • What is his role?     So does everybody on the team who doesn't want to be traded because of whatever Easterby did not seeing things as well as Watson and 5 players who were let go by the team?  Why are the 5 seeing it correctly and the 150 not?      
    • Instead of trying to split the atom on how stats are measured, let's keep it simple and just apply basic logic.    Should we not expect a 31 year old to lose speed? Should we not expect a tiny guy who's losing his speed, to struggle getting the same separation he relied on all these years? Even if you disagree with the majority of fans (who think he's slowed), wouldn't the trained eyes of the coaches know better? And if TY still had it (and Rivers was at fault), wouldn't TY get a better/longer deal than 1 year / 8M? Should we believe TY's stats are simply wrong, while most of the other pass catchers are grading better at separation while getting the same balls, by the same QB? Are stats out to get TY, or is Philip just bad throwing to TY and good to everyone else? And nobody saying Rivers is great. But simply other pass catchers are grading better with Rivers, than TY. TY relied on his speed all these years (along with route running). He's losing that speed, and now has to rely on route running (for tough yards) and mismatches (seam and bad DBs) for the majority of his highlights. There's no mystery here. It's just getting harder for him. I really hope he can squeeze one more 1000 yard season out for the Colts.
