My thought is Ballard is trying hard for Trent Williams.  We will do nothing until he knows the outcome.  I think tomorrow is the day for Trent one way or the other.  If we get Trent I think we will sign the CB Auwzie, a TE, Clowney and possibly TY returning or we acquire another WR. 

I like Awuzie. I think hes better than TJ Carrie.

I know. Just saying why they might be adding to their Dline.

 

I get it. I am not in favor of this signing at all. Why pay this mediocre player so much when Zeitler went for less and would have likely had a greater impact. I'm a huge fan of Zeitler and we need a competent guard. Zeitler is a lot more than competent.

I would trade 21 for Hunter in a heartbeat honestly and then grab a LT with our 2nd and be on our way lol

 

I hope we retain him. Hunter is a great player.

I read an article months ago mentioning Thielen as a trade candidate for the Colts.  It suggested he could probably be acquired for a 2nd rd pick.  I don't remember where but it might have been BR.  I believe his contract is pretty reasonable. 

It would be incredibly dumb to trade a 2nd for a 31 year old WR.

At the same time all I was hearing from Colts insiders was that they expected Ballard to go hard after a pass rusher on the edge in free agency. That obviously didn’t happen.

You need to be patient. We are only 5 years into the 3 year rebuild.

Who’s to say we didn’t and simply got outbid?

  • They were personal squabbles
  • They posted complaints about other posters or groups of posters
  • They posted snide/insulting gifs and / or obnoxious reactions (which only served to inflame further endless disagreement)

If you had posts removed, it was because YOU were part of the problem. A lot of people in this thread were a part of the problem

 

Moving Forward, PLEASE

  • Don't like a post/poster? Ignore them
  • See a post that is off topic? report it
  • See a post that is insulting/baiting? report it
  • See a thread derail? Report it

I suggest that if you want to discuss in general whether or not the colts should be spending more on FA, another thread is a better place for it. Even so, if you know you'll never agree with someone, just avoid engaging with them. Doing so just invites other people to pile on and comment and react and then blame you for the fact that they are irritated.

Why are the Vikings signing Dalvin Tomlinson? :(

I really like Tomlinson as a prospect, but haven't paid too much attention to his career so far. I've seen a few people paralleling the signing with when the Vikings signed Linval Joseph. Hopefully he plays as well for the Vikings as Joseph did.

WHAT!? That makes no sense for NE. That's $25M AAV for both Hunter and Smith.

NE is definitely taking advantage of the fact that they are not having to pay a QB

 

When you don't have to pay QB and also are not paying big money on other major areas like OL, you can then turn and dump a ton of money on your defensive front, your DBs and your TEs/Pass catchers

 

I wonder if this is a sign of a move for them to grab a rookie QB

 

Definitely makes sense to give a rookie QB some of the best possible TEs available with how much TEs are a friend and safety valve for many rookie QBs

Holy smokes. Patriots are going FULL tilt. 
 

 

They're paying two FA TEs? 

Somewhere between "lol" and Cam needs weapons. 

That's not the Patriots way (whatever the heck that is). They're throwing money at problems now.

I think they're absolutely going QB in the 1st the year. They have Cam to start for another year with the rookie able to sit and learn.

YEAH! It’s wild. Complete 180 from what they normally do. Hate to put on my conspiracy hat this early in the morning but.....Bill HAS to be loading up for one more run. He better have a good ROI on all this. Could blow up in his face.

I mean, this definitely blows up their usual strategy of loading up on comp picks.

Expect more wailing and gnashing of teeth today..... It's gonna come hard and fast when the only move we make today is re-signing George Odum....if we make one at all...

Patriots. All this spending?? In this economy?!

 

They don't have to pay the QB, just $6 mil. guaranteed for Cam, so they have the room and they possibly will push some contract money to the future for some other contracts including the classic "voidable years" technique that the Bucs and other teams are using to go all in now.

I’m thinking they’ll leverage the farm and go all in on a rookie QB.

Yeah I agree. But If there’s one coach In this league that could pull it off, it’s the hooded one. Gulp

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
