He's saying that the Jags' Kirk contract completely changed the landscape for WRs across the league and Diggs' new contract is yet another one that most likely wouldn't have been anywhere near as much if the Jags hadn't signed Kirk to such a huge contract.

No, giving Christian Kirk 4yrs/$72 mill with a $21.5 mill cap hit screwed the market.  If Kirk is worth a $21 mill cap hit, diggs is worth every bit of $30 mill

Yes, and this to me is why Landry is still on the market. He is wanting a contract like these and teams are hesitant from the looks of it.

You’re 100% correct.  The Colts have the largest offer on the table for Landry. However, he and his agent see Kirk’s contact, know they’ve accomplished more and are holding out as long as possible for more.  Matthieu is playing a similar game.

Sincere question:   What makes you think we’ve made any offer at all to Landry.   I’ve never seen that anywhere.   Have you read something that claims that?

 

Ive seen us connected to Mathieu and Bradberry (via trade) but not Landry at all.  What can you tell us?

Follow Shaad McGinnes , Dustin Adams, and the Blue Stable.  Dustin and Shaad have a team source. Shad’s brother coaches for the Rams. They have broke quite a few things prior to the talking heads. They’re in the loop.

    • Yep they were doing it we were not.
    • They were running sweeps and pitch outs with Henry.  Wake up coach.  Get JT into space.
    • I'm not following.    You're saying that TEN did not cover our receivers on running plays?  I get that. Or,   When we called passing plays, all of our receivers were open...   Of course, that would be the case because we had been calling so many running plays... IOW, run to set up the pass...if you've ever heard football analysis before.   Or do you believe in the Eaststreet way of looking at games and stats by modern (read stupid) ways of looking at analytics.  "Since our players were wide open on the passing plays (we called after we ran the ball), we should have called more passing plays and fewer running plays", LOL.   Maybe you mean something else.
    • I agree with TaylorTheStudMuffin on this one. Whatever we are, we are not contenders right now. You can make all the excuses you want for Ballard and Reich but contenders don't do the following week in and week out like the Colts do. I believe Ballard and Reich share equal blame in some of these re-occurring problems: 1. Start slow (in both games and in seasons). I have seen this team do this too often and burn themselves out by the end of the season. We have even come back from the slow starts several times but it is typically a recipe for disaster instead of contender's approach. 2. Turnovers 3. Stupid Penalties 4. Outdated/Predictable/and Questionable Play calling.  The above are all coaching problems in my opinion. GM Issues: 1. Relying solely on the draft and trades to build a roster. As TaylorTheStudMuffin stated, even if you are a great drafter it is a bit of a crapshoot. You may have to add players who can make an immediate impact via FA instead of waiting three years in hopes that a late round draftee develops.  This is never more evident than at the wide receiver position. Ballard has absolutely refused to spend money to add a FA wide receiver with real NFL production. This is a huge mistake. Yes, just like drafting, spending money does not guarantee that you will hit on a good FA, but not participating in the FA market at all guarantees that you wont. This is the approach that Ballard has rigidly followed. 2. Deciding to go with 3 straight different band-aid starters at QB after the Jacoby Brissett year is unmistakably on Ballard. Ballard has refused to spend what he needed to acquire a franchise QB, unfortunately, that is fact. You can debate the merits of just how much should be given up to get a future QB or whether the players that were available were worth it, but you cannot debate that Ballard has failed to actually do it. There is essentially four ways to get a shot at a new franchise QB. 1. Suck so bad that you get a top draft pick. Ballard and most fans don't want to see that. 2. Target and trade for a young proven player (yes, even if it costs three 1st-rounders).  3. Give up significant draft capital or players (as much as needed) to select the player you want in the NFL draft. 4. Get lucky and hit on a late-round QB. So far, and hopefully #1 is not in play for this year, the Colts have failed to do any of those four. They instead elected to create their own method (the veteran band-aid thing) which has not worked out. At some point the Colts will be forced to take one of the other four options. Hopefully, it is not #1; of course, we could always elect to go yet another year with the current failed method. Regardless of who Reich wanted as a QB, this decision still falls to Ballard. 3. Spent record amounts of money on an offensive line that has so far failed to protect our non-mobile band-aid QB's.- These are personnel moves so they again fall to Ballard although some blame may go to positional or head coaches.    
    • I do like Stroud but we would have to go 1-15-1 to get him
