    To be fair to Kelly his fate was sealed when IND signed Brian Hoyer to be their backup. I suspect they are going to stash him on their PS, so waiving him is required to get him there (assuming he goes unclaimed). Obv given Kelly’s off the field issues there’s huge risk and skepticism is warranted but I wouldn’t be surprised if IND sees him as the QB3 to stash on the PS much like DEN sees Brett Rypien.
  2. Goodbye John Ralston

    Ring of Fame was created how long ago? I can imagine they probably wanted to work through all the players that deserved it...and then he kinda got lost in the shuffle. Either way, his passing probably highlights the omission in a big way. Until Pat Bowlen shows up, Ralston is the guy who started the turnaround. 16 of the 22 starters for the first Super Bowl team we had were drafted by Ralston IIRC. Definitely deserving of a spot on the Ring. EDIT: 1984.
  3. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    It's fair to timeshare him for games when they are the favorite - but Lafleur was talking about the entire season as a 50-50 mix. Williams is JAG. It's pretty telling for a key intra-divisional game like MIN, they leaned on Jones more. He's just a better player. The days of a 3-down bellcow are rare, and agree that Jones' MCL history says he's not going to be a 300 carry guy - but 50-50 season long is just crazy. The additional context is that Matt Lafleur thought it was best to timeshare Derrick Henry & Dion Lewis for 13 games - it took a historic TNF performance and their season on the line Week 13 before Lafleur got away from that dreadful decision. That context suggests that Lafleur is just a timeshare advocate, because there's no argument that Henry shouldn't be a workhorse over Lewis. Having said that, if the game gets away from us early, those are the games to timeshare lesser talents. No argument there. But it would be shocking to see Williams & Jones with a 50-50 split at end of season.
  4. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    As bad as some of the coaching decisions we have seen on our end over the years, I’m continuously amazed by the horrid RB timeshare decisions coaches on other teams make when there is a clearly better talent present. We saw it week 2 with David Montgomery over Mike Davis with CHI and now GB HC Lafleur. Aaron Jones is 10x a better runner than Jamal Williams no way it should be a 50/50 split. SMH.
  5. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    I didn't ever get being traded to MIA from reading Of Mice and Men. I have to go back and read that last chapter again.
  6. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    That's a little harsh. I mean, worst-case he's cutting Bolles, not shooting him in the head.
  7. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    Well good to see the FO is going to publicly call Bolles out now. That BS about not taking responsibility is a huge red flag, better that everyone let him publicly that won't fly. If Bolles doesn't make such a ridiculous statement, he doesn't need the public callout, but that lack of accountability has to be called out hard.

    I’d be shocked if Fromm fell out of Rd1. The rapid decline of vet QB’s is going to heighten the need. Teams like CAR are now in the mix.

    On principle alone @iLikeDefense should be eliminated! It’s only week 2 to be losing track of picks lol.

    Yes, PIT’s FO either are idiots or believe there isn’t much of a drop off from Big Ben to Rudolph as many expect.

    Just to be clear 20’s pick means playoffs. So 7-9 / 8-8 isn’t getting there. That’s the risk.
  13. 2020 College Prospects

    Yeah, brain cramp - 2019-20 was my idea, not 2021. No argument. By 2021, we are all in on QB if Lock isn't the guy. My bad, all good.

    If we have a top 5 pick, the beauty is the QB demand will likely be very high, and 3-4 guys who likely get top 20 consideration (and 1-2 who def get top 5-6 consideration). Moving back is much more likely in that situation, where demand is high. We can hit BPA and pretty much hit a need area - OT, ILB, 2nd WR (Sanders is great, I tip my cap, but you have to think 2021+ with a 2020 pick). Really, we have no positions we can't improve on. I am not convinced Lock is our QBOTF given his weaknesses - but I'd be the first to acknowledge given his injury, we're going to give him 2020 & 2021 before we consider an early QB pick. Given that, we are best served hitting BPA, but being strategic about staying/moving back. Our roster needs every hit possible, and if the match isn't there, better to have a a top 15 pick and a Day 2 pick and hit T/LB, than stay at 5-6 and reach for positional need.
