Why am I a troll because I don't agree with you? Why aren't you a troll then if you disagree with me? :cool:
There is a big double standard at play here....... :bs:
This is a business. Players go where the money is. The Colts could have kept Manning, traded Luck for a boat load of picks over two seasons and kept most of their good players....
Do you think Mathis would have taken less money to join a good team like the Pats or NY Giants? :bs:
Do you think Freeney would accept reworking his deal to take less money to play for the Packers? :bs:
Irsay did a number on you. That man lied is *** off the entire season about everything and made sure the season ticket holders were locked in before he starting exterminating the Colts..... All of these draft picks and do mean all of them are 50/50 to be good players in the NFL when you factor in injuries and everything else. That is why they will not rebuild from this mess in three years. That would take an incredible run of good fortune (note I did not say "Luck")......... :cool:
The die is cast, lets get behind them and see what they can do. You can't fire any owner anyway (damnit)......:box:
Point is the end is near for the Pats it just may take 4 more years before Brady hangs it up and they start to rebuild.
To answer your question to Dgreen the Colts couldn't keep Manning and everyone else plus trade down and draft RG3. That combo would take up 17% of the cap and add in the Freeney and thats another 15%. Keep adding a Dallas clark, Addai, Bracket and the available cap space becomes smaller and smaller.
IRsay said the Colts were 10 million cash over cap and Polain before he was fired said the colts were 8 million cash over cap for last year.
IF you subtract Collins 4 million and no one else leaving the team then your easily well over the cap number even with the expections to the cap ceiling.
Lets go back to your talk about the people who thought that RG3 was a better QB than Luck:
Bill Parcells: He drafted Chad Henne. Quincy Carter? Drew Bledsoe (In a smaller fashion)?
Brian Billick: Do I need to remind anyone of Kyle Boller? Elvis Gerbac? Steve McNair? Tony Banks? Anthony Wright?
Phil Simms: Is he ever right?
So this is my point. You just find some random draft guy who agrees with you and you say "I must be right look at this!" Consider the source.
That's my final comment to you because no matter how much evidence is piled up in front of you to the contrary, You just gonna troll...:cool:
ďWinning is definitely the highest priority,Ē he said. ďIíve been in the league for ten years now and I donít look at the NFL as a place where I can hoard money and get as much as I can because itís the end of the world.Ē
ESPNís Adam Schefter reports that Ochocinco restructured his contract for the 2012 season, lowering his base salary from $3 million to $1 million.
I would like to know what Olblu would be willing to bet on Luck being a bust. I am dead serious. If he isn't a bust I think an IP ban is needed lol
We would not even be able to agree on what was a bust....... Peyton Manning was run out of town to make room for this man. I would think if he isn't 75% of what Peyton has been, he is a bust.... What is your definition and why should I be banned? Why shouldn't you be banned for demanding that I agree with your views?
If he had not done that, Ochocinco would have been out of the NFL..... I don't see these as examples of people taking less to play on good teams. I see them taking less to just stay in the game....
Lloyd took less money to be on the pats and its assinine to suggest he would be out of the league if the pats didn't sign him. He had a better offer from other teams but he want to win.
I could come up more examples but I don't think it would matter.
75% of Peyton has been is a bust? That is just laughable.
My point is if the guy is willing to back-up his opinion with actual fact and not just throw up the :BS: flag I am cool with it. In my opinion, Olblu is just trying to stir up **** and get responses. It's all fascinating to be honest because what has he actually said
"Statistically RG3 was the better QB"
"Statistics can be skewed in any fashion you want."
So which one is it? You have an opinion? That's cool but be consistent and don't just respond in whatever fashion is good for that point.
IF you cut a player their dead money still counts against the cap. Cutting Bracket will save very little in 2012. All that backloading of contracts comes due when the players are cut which is why it doesn't work like your describing.
For the 2012 season the Colts have to play with a cap number of around 82 million because 38 million will be dead money. This is why what you suggest is so ridiculous in the first place. Even with cutting guys they didn't have the money to resign Mathis, Garcon and Tamme.
The :bs: meter is pegged again..... The Colts did resign Mathis although I do not know why. If they had not resigned Reggie Wayne, they could have resigned either Tamme or Garcon` :cool:
Let's get real here, the colts weren't going to win or even challenge for the superbowl this year, even with Peyton healthy. After last season I think its safe to say change was needed, because for the first time our players were exposed for what they are: undersized, and too relient on Peyton to save the day. Peyton could've come back and been great, but it doesn't change the fact that the other positions on the team were in need of replacement. Peyton wanted a chance to WIN, and as a team the colts could not help him do that. It was time for a change.
Taking luck signals a fresh start, with an apparent change in philosophy as well. We can argue luck vs. Griffin all day, but if we build the rest of the team right, then it won't matter who the qb is, we will always have a chance to win.
I don't agree with you. This team was only two years removed from going to a Super Bowl and won the division championship the year before. Bring Peyton back with that same team and he wins ten games or more and probably gets to the playoffs.... The fresh start you are talking about will be years of losing while Peyton will be in the playoffs and working to get back to the Super Bowl.....:cool:
Mark my words: In 5 years, Robert Griffin will be known as a bust. He is a glorified Troy Smith.
They tried to resign Garcon but he wanted more money than they were prepared to pay so after Garcon signed elsewhere they went to Reggie. The point is that Reggie was a last resort not the first option.
