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.

    • As you likely know,  the 2021 schedule is revealed Wednesday Night...   5/12...   8p your time...   5p my time...     These are things I always look for as soon as I see the schedule.   In no particular order....   1.    Do we start at home, or on the road?   Typically, you close your season with the opposite.       2.    Marquee games?    National Games?    Are we on the big stage at all?    Anything beyond the dreaded Thursday night games which most every team gets stuck with and hates!     Ugh.  The worst.   3.   Bye week?    When does it happen?    I prefer late October to Early November.   Something close to the middle of the season.    We got lucky once having the bye week in week 4.    That was Luck's rookie year.    The early break allowed Chuck Pagano and his wife to see a doctor and caught his leukemia early enough to save him.    Otherwise, I hate the early bye week.   I prefer weeks 7-10.   4.   Hardest stretch of the schedule.   Easiest part of the schedule.   Knowing full well that what the schedule might seem like in May, might be totally different by the time that part of the season comes.   5.    Potential bad weather games.    So, this year,  we play Buffalo, Baltimore, Dolphins and Jags on the road.   Games in September likely means hot and humid.   Games in the northern cities in December likely means cold and even possible snow.   6.    Anything out of the ordinary?    Some years, one team gets screwed and has to play 3 consecutive games on the road.    I think it has most recently happened to SF and Seattle,  and those teams already put on a lot of miles traveling from the West Coast.   Did I leave out anything?     Is there something you look for and I didn't mention it?    Let us know!   The 2021 season gets REAL Wednesday Night!           
    • Actually we can if we cut Doyle. Saves 4.5 mil
    • No way have the cap room to spend on him. 
    • OK......   You've conflated two issues in this post, and moved the goal-line in the process.   Your headline says "Why does Ballard love 1-year deals"...     and you list a large bunch of players who have received one-year deals.   But you've also lumped in with them, a bunch of players who are NOT one 1-year deals.    They are on the last year of their rookie contract.    Their 4-year rookie contract.    That's entirely DIFFERENT.   You listed, Hines, Wilkins, Smith, Turay, Lewis,  Adams and Franklin.   That's 7 players who are on the last year of their 4-year rookie contract.   You even included Glowinski, who is on the last year of his 3-year deal that Ballard signed him to.    8 players.   And they've all been lumped in with guys who got 1-year deals.   The reasons for all the 1-year deals are several.    One, 1-year deals keep motivation high.   Two,  1-year deals can be done with players at a young age because you have contractual leverage, like with Pascal and MAC and Odoms.    Three,  one year deals during this current strange Covid time is because the salary cap has gone down,  no one is quite sure how much it will go up next year?   So, better to do a one-year deal and then figure things out in a year or so when we all have a better idea on what the 22 cap will be and even the 23 cap.    Four,  things are going to get complicated, financially speaking, when we sign guys like Q, Darius and Braden to their Big Deals.   Plus, by then we might be talking about extending Wentz.   All that will be a big factor on our long-term approach to the team.
