No thanks... Rudolph is terrible

 

He's another Jack Doyle type and YES Doyle must go by hopefully a trade to get us at least a 5th

Why do you think Doyle must go? 

There is always room on the roster for a TE that has good hands and moves the chains.

Come on... No, you know what, I realize some here like Doyle. I just have never liked Doyle. Doyle is not an impact player to me. Yes I know that sometimes a key first down pickup by a Doyle catch is an impact play in that moment, it's just Doyle has so few moments that he might as well be on another team making a very low impact. Honestly, Ebron in his first year with Colts ironically has been the best TE the colts have had since Dallas Clark... That should tell you something

Doyle don't drop the ball near as much as Ebron did and still does. The Steeler fans are not happy at all about his drops. He was never as sure handed as Jack is. 

The season Ebron had was an outlier. His time with the Steelers has shown that. 

You may dis on Jack but you can bet the coaches don't.

Who said anything about dropping the ball? I said IMPACT Player... In 2020 Doyle was thrown to an average of twice per game... TWO times a game, catching 1.5 passes a game, 3 TD's... There were more passes thrown per game out of bounds than to Doyle...:lol:

 

In 2018 Ebron was thrown to 7 times a game.. Catching 4.5 passes a game, 13 TD's

 

In fact, if you take Doyles targets per game for his entire career with the Colts his average is 3 targets(not catches) per game... THREE a game...

 

You call that IMPACT... ?? I call that Terrible

 

By comparison Kyle Rudolph career 4.5 targets per game

 

Zach Ertz... career 7.5 targets a game.....

 

I didn't want to use Kelsey or Kittle as that would skew this exercise

 

TJ Hockenson has a career target of 6 a game and he has missed 4 games... 

 

Anyway, as I stated originally... Doyle and Rudolph are trash!! Definately not impact players

 

Who cares if he never really drops the ball... HE NEVER GETS THROWN TO. There is a reason why that is and it's called not in the game plan unless it's a last resort

 

Come on...

So I guess you think the QB and or the plays called by Frank has zero to do with it? 

When Jack IS called upon he produces. 

Like I said, you can dis on Jack all you want but I highly doubt he is going anywhere except the starting lineup for the Colts.

It is going to be a massacre in the up coming weeks many teams trying to get under the expected 180 mil cap and make room for priority free agents.

Curious. Why?

 

He is more of a red zone special guy with more downs contributed in blocking than anything else, at this stage of his career. For a cheap 1-2 year deal, since there is always value for inline TEs that can block, yes. Otherwise, no.

Doyle does so much more than just catching. Hes a big part of the run game. Rudolf is a great blocker too, if we can sign him cheap he's the right kinda a guy for Indy.

He is a great fit for the NE Patriots style of offense.

    • 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.
