However, there was a difference in their choices from 2007 on. There were some really bad picks in there. When you use just one method to build your team, you can't have a decline in that area.

Manning propped the team up on his shoulders at the end and it was exposed when he got hurt. People think they sucked for Luck in 2012, not a chance. That team had so little talent. They were really outmatched in games.

I believe that had more to do with the poor drafting than any other factor.

Holy shit that is a fucking sweet contract for the Colts, there is no way short of acting like a Chefs star player that Moore is not on the team in '19 and after that nothing lost.

It's the sort of contract that indicates that you want the guy for the entirety of the deal, not just the first couple of seasons. I am sure if he outplays his contract value then the contract will be renegotiated in a few years.

I have always hated the short term contracts that are made to look like a 5 year deal just so that the agent looks good. If you are truly trying to sign a cornerstone player sign him to a deal that you can commit to long term such as this one. I really like the way that Ballard has operated with the contracts that he has handed out throughout his reign.

I also think that if you sign an undrafted street free agent to a 2 year deal (which often happens) then he should be paid for the full two years. If you decide to cut him then so be it...but you pay out his full contract, if that means you actually only give him a 3 month contract with no security just because he is camp fodder then do that, and if he makes the team sign him to a new contract at that point.
