He was only 25 years old. Had they kept him, then traded with Ditka for a shit load of draft choices, I believe they could have become dominant within 2 years. I loved Edge, but he's one man, and he didn't play defense.
I think I remember it this way too. I for sure remember I was pissed when Polian came and traded Faulk.

He played a year with TWO high ankle sprains. He bitched about not getting his bonus, but he made every freaking game. Thats why Jim payed him his bonus, he played every game and played for the team
Maybe in '96-'97 and at the start of '98, but I remember that once the O started clicking in Peyton's rookie year Faulk seemed to buy in and he had a hell of a year.

At any rate I'm not saying that Faulk was a better fit than Edge b/c he wasn't. What I am saying is that Faulk, Bailey/Holt, extra picks in several rounds of the '99 draft, and the 2nd overall pick and an extra 3rd rounder in the '00 draft would have been better than Edge, Peterson, and Scioli.

So Brett Kolman reviews the senior bowl and the top ten players at it. Good watch.

And then he drops this bomb; the Colts love Jordan Love. Apparently the Colts really want Jordan Love and it is the worst kept secret right now.

I hope all the talk about Jordan Love is smoke and mirrors. Ballard went to Notre Dame once and never mentioned Nelson again (publicly) until the pick was announced.

Personally out on a limb prediction but I see Dolphins trading the 1.05 & 2.07 to the Lions for the 1.03 to insure that they get Tua Tagovailoa. Then the Lions trading the 1.05 to the Colts for the 1.13 & 2.02 and the Colts take Justin Herbert leap frogging the Chargers @ 1.06 to do so? Give Herbert this season or part of it to learn and step in for Jacoby next year or earlier should Brissett falter.

Iím not particularly sold on Love either. Iím not a scout though. The main thing I want is for them to target and get who they believe can be a franchise guy and not just accept ďthe best availableĒ that falls to them at QB. If they really think itís Love, Iím fine with it. I personally like your scenario as I prefer Herbert to Love and I like them moving up to get their guy.

Yeah - it was widely covered in the press all of the times Ballard traveled to Utah State games to scout Love.

I wonder who Dodds was scouting at this same time???

I'm confused. How can the Dolphins trade 1.05 twice? Or perhaps that is what makes it out on a limb??
