D. Watson anyone

Today we found out no criminal charges are going to be charged to D. Watson the grand jury dismissed all 9 counts against him. The Colts need a quality qb and he fits the bill. He will be suspended by the nfl for conduct but he will be available after that. I say we roll with Sam till he's ready to go. This guy can play


Yep, just that simple.

The leagues favourable teams that still need a Top Flite QB are Pittsburgh & Giants. The Broncos & Packers solidified the position recently. I will guess the Titans & Bucs are dark horse candidates. He's a upgrade over Jones in New England but I think Kraft will stay with Jones, but the first two is my guess. ..... Definitely not the colts or lions lol.

 

But why can't the Texans and Watson mend their differences? If that happens the Titans & Colts could both be looking up to the jags(Lawrence) and Texans (Watson) soon.

That's the criminal charges.   He is still facing civil lawsuits.   It's far from over.    He will be facing a suspension for sure

i don't think he'll be suspended for that long.

Big Ben got six games 12 years ago.     If Watson settles out of court with these ladies he will be admitting guilt.    Ridley just got suspended a year for betting parlays on Fanduel.   I could see him suspended for a season

settling is not an admission of guilt.

Of coarse it is.     Why would you settle if you're innocent?    Go to trial and prove you did nothing wrong

 

In the court of public opinion,   it is certainly an admission of guilt

because the process can cost more in the end than settling.  what you're saying is flat out wrong.

 

settling has never been an admission of guilt, regardless of the PR impact. 

 

people can feel how they want, that doesn't change the law.  he's already been found innocent of criminal charges. now as for the civil case it will be for emotional damages or something like that.

Goodell will treat setting as an admission of guilt.   Trust that

well sure Goodell can do whatever he wants, that doesn't change the fact that settling a court case is not an admission of guilt.  

 

like I said just previously, the way people feel about him is their own problem. can't go around prosecuting people based on hearsay. Court did it's job and made a decision based on evidence, and like we chatted about previously there is no criminal evidence and that hasn't changed.  what the league is gonna do has nothing to do with you claiming he's guilty if he settles a civil case. but you're entitled to that opinion even if it is wrong.

I would never settle if I knew I was innocent.    That's just me I guess

Texans won’t trade him to a team in the division.

Buddy of mine was talking this morning about how hilarious it’d be if Watson refused to waive his no trade clause for anyone but us. Just to spite the Texans haha

Sometimes the legal fees of fighting and winning are way higher than they would be just to settle. It’s why so many insurance companies chose to just settle these days

I haven't really followed this, so will ask:

Was he found innocent of the criminal charges, or did they decide there was not enough evidence to pursue criminal charges? Big difference.

Grand jury dismissed the indictment. Happened yesterday. 

 

No evidence of criminal wrong doing.

Its funny how all the same people who said Wentz would never be traded or released are the same people who dont think Ballard will ever trade a boat load of pics and players for a franchise QB. It could definitely happen especially now that Rogers and Wilson are off the table. Being in the same division makes our odds a little lower to land him but not impossible

Even if he didn't have the moral cloud hanging over him, there is ZERO chance the Colts could get him. ZERO. Even if he didnt have a market, if i'm Houston, i'd almost rather force him to sit four years than send him to a division rival. ZERO chance.

Watson has a no-trade clause in his contract giving him the ability to reject any trade offer the Texans propose to him. He could tell the Texans he would only waive his no trade clause for the Colts, leaving the Texans no choice but to deal him to the Colts so they are able to get something back from him in return.

They'd keep him. They've sat him one season, i believe they'd hold the asset and bleed his career out on the bench rather than give him to an immediate rival.....and they'd be right.

I don't think I would either but people make decisions based on their circumstances. He just lost one year of his personal and professional life. How long will that continue? If it is likely to take many years, does it make sense not to settle so that everyone can move on with their lives. In his situation, I might settle. In my life, I would not.

 

Hopefully this is a lesson learned for him. I would love to hear what he has to say.

Who is Jeff Simon? Unless it is coming from a credible source like Pelissero, Schefter or Mort, I don't take these tweets seriously.

Saw a story from Houston best writer John McClain saying the Colts inquired but Houston said no. 
 

The story says Watson rejected all teams except New Orleans and Carolina.   It would appear to be a two team race.

There you have it Colt's fans and all those who think like a madden GM..............the Colt's asked for permission and were denied access to Watson.

 

Ballard did his due diligence (as always) and was turned down. 

 

Why?

 

Hmmmmmm gee let me think? Perhaps it because WE ARE IN THE SAME DIVISION as the Texans and they would be fools to trade within the division so their man could beat them twice a year for the next ten years! 

 

Some of y'all need to get a grip on reality and return to planet earth!

    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
    • Coutee was a late waive (last cut day) by Houston that surprised a lot of folks, and we jumped on him quickly (I think it was around the time we knew TY would miss time). I don't mean necessarily that someone will grab him for a starter roll, but he'll get grabbed by someone (PS or 53). He's been in the league 4 seasons, but not sure he's met the accrued 4 year stipulation (weeks on 53). Strachan and Patmon both have a little film out there which will interest teams. Patmon has a bit of a rep for not being a my-ball guy, so that likely hurts him. Strachan is seen as raw with a high ceiling so teams are more likely to romanticize lol. All three would at least make it to a team, 53 or PS. But I think Strachan is the most likely claimed for a 53 spot.
