Im hoping Tell can beat Rock out for the #2 corner spot. Be nice to have 2 big long corners out there between Tell and Rhodes.

I'm hoping the best player wins,  whether it be Rock or Tell.  Either way,  I'm sure both of them will see the field this year.

I watched his video, to see for myself. I have no idea idea why you would label him a jerk. He was respectful, and answered each question. 

I just gave her a LIKE because of the interviews she posted, I don't see it either regarding Ben.

Some great interviews today. Everyone is raving about Wentz. Wentz and Eason already are developing a great bond. Wentz has invited Eason to some of his workouts.

I just listened to Easons presser. That kid is impressive. I would of felt good with him starting if we hadn’t gotten Wentz. 

Curtis Painter was an impressive person and good interview, too.

There is just something about him. Can’t exactly put my finger on it. Pittman mentioned today how they are good friends and how he is very smart.  Eason seems to be putting in a lot of work.

Maybe and I hope he has success, but he faces challenging odds of becoming a successful starter if you go by the results of other non-first round QB picks in recent years. 

 

Quote

The days of first-round snubs going onto superstar careers such as Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Drew Brees, or becoming solid long-term starters such as Matt Hasselbeck, Trent Green and Mark Brunell are a thing of the past.

 

Since a stretch in 2011-12 when Russell Wilson, Andy Dalton, Kirk Cousins and Colin Kaepernick fashioned successful careers after being passed over in round one, only a rare few have made it since.

 

Of the 70 quarterbacks taken after round 1 from 2013-20, including 26 who went in rounds two through four, only Dak Prescott, Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo have become successful starters.

I think a lot of those later round QB just don’t ever get a actual chance to start rather then them failing. Eason needs to really show out in the preseason. If he looks great and Carson plays like we think he will Eason might be trade bait and get a chance if he really plays well in preseason. I don’t think colts will trade him this year but if all goes well maybe in 22.

Michael is such a likeable guy. I'm rooting for him!

 

I also think Jacob's attitude has been top class since he has arrived in the building. I'm looking forward to seeing him out there on the field this offseason.

I think if TY walks after this year he might end up being a captain. Zach has those qualities too if he signs a extension. 
 

Pittmans wife’ is overdue now by a few days. Hopefully that baby comes soon.

I see future captain material in him too. He is an impressive young man, he will make a good captain and father.

Is it camera angle or does Hilton look a little bigger?

I think it’s been brought up a couple times how he looks bigger. He looks broader in the shoulders.

i have a bad feeling the first couple games without fisher will be a struggle .   tevi looked like clark at times for the chargers just looked ugly .  i am a herbet fan so i watch plenty of games .

Didn’t Tevi only give up like 2 sacks last season. I think he is a step above clark and green but probably not as good as Fisher and AC.

 its not just about sacks giving up 134 pressures a league high in tackles  and was the worst graded tackle in pass blocking according to pff .  he got bailed out by herberts mobility big time last year .   He caused some pain , i am a massive ballard fan so i will wait to see what happens . maybe its just a flaw in his game that can be tweaked .

Or maybe he will look better with 4 really good olineman. We will see. I think we will be fine if Fisher doesn’t start right away. The oline has to work as a group.

I like what I saw from Holden but it was so few snaps. Once teams game plan for him who knows if he would hold up.

I have to laugh at eagle fans posting in colt threads about how much they hate Wentz. They are really triggered seeing him have fun and his teammates embrassing him.

Did the Chargers have Q playing left guard?

How & why do you know that? Lol

...and yes of course we all hope the delivery goes well. Nothing more important and precious than being a parent. 

 

About Pittman,  he came off as impressive while being casual and relaxed.  Glad we have him. :D

Well because she posts on Instagram. Go watch her stories. They are yourubers so yes her job is social media. I am shocked how many nfl players wives have YouTube’s. Somehow I came across issac Rochelles wife YouTube channel the other day. She is a cool lady. It’s kind of cool to see players on your team doing everyday life.

If a defensive end is lined up wide against an overmatched left tackle and can beat them to the outside, there isn't much the left guard can do.

Anyone else get kind of strange vibe from Banogu's interview. He seemed a bit down. Maybe he's just not as sunshiny as the rest.

I said yesterday I thought it was kind of off putting and everyone jumped down my throughly.

I've watched about 75% of the interviews. All were pumped and sunshiny, and a lot of confidence. Banogu's had a much different tone. Not that it means anything, just very different vibe. Hope things click for him this year. By all reports, he's a hard worker. Hope he had some good breakthroughs with his trainer over the off season.

No, you said he was a “jerk”. Other posters watched the interview and didn’t agree with your opinion and speculated that he was annoyed at the repeated questions about last year. That’s not what you describe here.

Sure, the left guard can probably help the left tackle with run blocking, but my main concern if the Colts have a subpar left tackle at the start of the season is that it could result in the starting quarterback getting squashed from his blindside.

    • The Eagles were a very rare situation. It's certainly not a model to build after. Look at them post 2017. IMO, that was a lot of luck. Look at Foles' entire history. He simply wasn't that good. Very inconsistent career.   You don't have to count on Wentz to be a savior, for him to be very good. He's played at top 10ish levels in QBR 3 out of his 4 years. I for one, don't believe we need to use him as a game manager. I think think we need to simply be balanced. A vet backup QB in our system might get us to the playoffs, but they aren't taking us deep. And keep in mind Philly had a top 5 D that year.    I'd be fine though with a "cheap" vet backup on a short term deal. I think there are sometimes great bargains to be had, like Winston last year with NO. But I'm more than fine with rolling with Eason. If Wentz goes down, I'll enjoy the rest of the season, but my expectations will be far lower, and I'd rather have a high draft pick, than a 8-8 team, or early out in the playoffs.
    • They might still, but lets be honest, its a backup role   I think they want to see what they have first   Give Speed a chance, he MIGHT be just what's needed   There will be some decent, not great backup LBs come available during the last cuts   If we need one we will go get them   I hope that our current bench shows well, and we stand pat.    
    • IDK. Walker was playing mostly early downs vs the run. Their (Walker and Oke) passing grades (passer rating allowed, etc) were very similar. Oke's grades overall took a huge step back in year 2 (sub 50 PFF too). With Walker playing mostly run downs (and good at defending the run), and Oke playing mostly passing downs (and his grades weren't good), I just don't see that as an "answer". And Oke will be playing run downs now, which is one of the digs on him to begin with. Exit Walker yes, but enter big gamble. And keep in mind, when Leonard went down, it was Walker who they moved to WILL, not Oke, which says something.   RYS is a 4.51 guy. Not elite speed, but more than enough. We saw him play very very well the 2H of 2019. He had injuries last year, early, middle, and late season. So speed is not really a reason I'd rule him out on. I do wonder though if he'd be more of a natural fit in a man scheme.   I do think he'd make a good S, but not ready to abandon his potential at CB just yet.
    • So, do you think we’re a serious contender?   Agree with you if Peyton or Rodgers is your QB.  But if you’re a run heavy team with a great Oline and a good D, a veteran backup can take you pretty far.  We’re all saying we’re not counting on Wentz to be the savior.  Just be decent and use the weapons.  Call it luck, but the Eagles did prove that out.     All that being said, I agree with your last point.     
    • That Walker was so bad in coverage they had to get him off the roster.  The question is why are we so bad in coverage? Exit Walker.  And, Ya-Sin will never have the speed so i believe he is not in great shape to be on the roster past this season. My crystal ball. Could he become a safety?
