Terron Armstead to Fins


Colt.45

Recommended Posts

LT - cheap

LG - big money coming

C - big money paid

RG - cheap

RT - big money paid

 

Paying three guys out of your five starting linemen big money is a heavy investment, making it 4/5 is a LOT to ask. You gotta fill the other two places with role players or rookies.

Going cheap at LT is very risky when you have an immobile 37 year old QB. Protecting his blindside is the most important position on the OL. Just because Pryor played well for a few games does not mean he can handle it for a whole season.

True but 3 guys are paid up, something has to give. Ideally, the LT is usually among those players and indeed was before Castonzo retired. It's just a heckuva lot of money for o-line without dynamic explosive talent at the creative offensive positions save RB.

The Colts have done well this offseason with their signings.

 

They started out pre-Ryan trade with the most cap space in the league.  Now - they're going to have to restructure deals to provide more cap space for additional needs.

 

There was NO WAY the Colts were going to be able to put the the kind of contract together for Armstead that the Dolphins did.  The Dolphins are on an all-out $$ and draft pick assault on free agency.  It will be interesting to see if all that investment pays off.

    • Shhh, the more he is "overlooked" the better off Downs and the Colts will be.
    • Dude diving for that catch made a fan of me. 
    • He is superbly quick, nearly unguardable. A very high % as a extension of our run game. With the speed to wheel them over the top. The guy should perform as a 9/10 in our offense.    
    • I think PFF is useful for analyzing individual players. But if I want to analyze the team's pass rush performance, I don't want to know how many times the individual players pressured the QB; I want to know the number of plays we managed to pressure the opposing QB.    For example, the QB drops back 50 times in a game, and he's pressured 15 times, and sacked three times. Let's say each of those 15 plays where he's pressured, there are two defenders getting pressure. PFF would count that as 30 pressures for the defense, because they're acknowledging that two players got a pressure on one play. Same process if each sack was shared among two players; they'd count six sacks, even though the QB was only sacked on three plays.   And that's fine, because that's their focus. But I think that context needs to be acknowledged when we're talking about team performance. Because, as we know with our pass rush last year, we feasted against bad offenses, but there were too many situations where we failed to get pressure at all.    So I like to use PFR when talking about team performance, because their sack/pressure stats are on a per-play basis, rather than per-player. Both metrics can be used together, I just think PFR tells us 'the opposing QBs dropped back this many times, faced pressure on this many plays, and were sacked this many times.' And now we can clearly see how frequently the pass rush is affecting the QB. Or in the case of the 2023 Colts, how infrequently...
