  1. I had always known that Philip Rivers would leave the game sooner than I wanted him to. He's one of the rare players that has his priorities very straight and realizes there is life after the game. BUT I was NOT expecting this. I should have taken a cue from his press conference after the playoff loss, he was really emotional. I think he was pretty sure even then. SHOOT, DANG IT ALL I really thought he would play another season. The fit with the Colts was a good one and his skills were still sharp if not at his peak levels. Now I get to experience the loss all over again

  4. I just voted but I'm still torn as heck. Voted other, yes wish Rivers had stayed one more year, and not sure. None of the choices excite me. I'd love to have Watson's talent, but no way I'm mortgaging the future that much, and also don't want a player who thinks he needs to choose GMs and HCs. I like the thought of Stafford and Carr to an extent, but doesn't excite me. I think I'm leaning towards signing Fitzmagic and letting him mentor and fight it out with Eason. Or just letting Eason have a go. If we tank, we tank, and are in better dra

  5. This team is built to win now. Matthew Stafford would be a perfect fit. He’s still an elite QB in his prime with multiple years left in the league.

  8. the AFCS will be better next year (than 2019), and our schedule will be harder in 2021. With all the potential turnover at LT, DEx2, CB, LB, WR, etc. no telling what would happen. 2021 is pure mystery to me right now.

  9. Listened to Larra Overton on the NFL radio network and they talked about PRs retirement. She was ask what JB may play in the future of the Colts and she stated she didn't feel he will play a part at all. Mentioned that CB went out and found a QB to replace him last year and said that CB would not have done that if he thought JB had a future with the Colts. Suspect she may have more insight than the average fan and what she said made a whole lot of sense to me.

  11. Eason isn't going to bring you much if anything, so don't even include him in a Watson deal. Certainly won't be the final nail either way. He might be a cherry on top for a Stafford or Wentz deal if someone specifically liked him in the draft. But don't hold your breath. If he's not ready, he's not ready. Toss him on the PS or ditch him. Only keep him if your really think he's truly just a year away (from starter, not backup). There's a glut of available ready made backup guys nowadays. Take a look at sportrac and take your pick. All this doesn't make muc

  12. Wow....I don't know how I mixed them up, but I was definitely thinking of Chase, not Waddle.... I think Smith and Chase are the 1st 2 WRs off the board. If he was BPA, I think I would. Just because he's such a dynamic playmaker and is already a pretty savvy WR. I'm hopeful we can snag our next LT at 21, but I think Waddle on the board still at 21 would be enticing.

  13. I think you go with Eason and a veteran. Would love to see Stafford or even Darnold to battle Eason. I love Chris Ballard but where he scares me is how he is always praising Jacoby Brissett, who is a very mediocre QB. I fear they will try to resign him or get someone like him.

  14. if he's not ready to be a backup after a year of learning from Rivers and a great locker room leader, not sure about his upside in general. personally i think the talk could have coach/gm-speak just to set things up to possibly bring JB back as a backup for another year. but who knows. either he's truly not ready to be a backup, or CB/FR are wasting rook contract years. not great either way.

  15. Ballard's in a kind of awkward situation--kinda "win now" with his non-QB roster, but sorta "rebuild" post-Luck. IMO none of the QBs listed (ignoring the parallel-universe possibility of getting Watson) give the Colts exactly what they need. Personally I wouldn't give up a 1st round for Stafford at this point in his career, and I absolutely wouldn't give one up for Wentz or Darnold. I'm not interested in helping the Eagles or Jets solve their own QB problems, but if Stafford could be obtained with multiple lower-round choices (2nd round in 2021 and 2022? something similar?) instead

  16. We have 21 players hitting free agency, 8 of which were 2020 starters (and that isnt counting the 2 starters we just lost to retirement). We also have to at start looking at extending Leonard, Smith and Nelson (among others). We are currently sitting at ~65M as per Overthecap. That money isnt going to go as far as people seem to think.

  17. He'd be fun to watch burn out in a blaze of glory. I'll take him as a free, no strings attached stop gap, than a huge risk like Wentz every day, and 100 times on Sunday. Fitz a minimum would be a fun, one year roller coaster. Wentz could turn into a multi year cap sucking nightmare that sets us back several years.

  18. He is super streaky. When he is good he is really good, when he is bad though, yuck. He is magical at times and fun to watch.

  19. Trask with Rivers would be a nice experiment. Trask with Eason (who is supposedly not ready to be a backup) doesn't sound like fun. I'm a Trask fan though (at least I like him more than Mack). Don't tell Dan.

  21. Well I heard some sirens today, i think there was a crash on the highway behind my apartment (Live in STL). On the Cards, at least you guys havent been trading or releasing half your team. Dewitt also expects about 12,000 fans at games most likely, with increases and possibly full even by end of season. I am guessing it will be Cubs and Cards up at the top of Division next year, fighting to see who gets the 3 seed. Mil, can do their annoying crap, but I am not certain they will as their luck may have run out Michael Brantley reups on deal with Astros after reports of him

  23. Precisely. Neither one of those guys is really worth a first. Ryan because age, and Stafford because of talent Stronger arm but basically the same limitations. I don’t think Stafford drastically increases your chance at winning a Super Bowl. Help or no help, he’s been mostly above average during his career. I’m not trading a 1st for what is essentially a younger Phillip Rivers. At that point, you might as well just spend the two first round picks and get one of those top 4 QBs. I really just don’t get the excitement around Stafford.

  24. Agree on your sentiments on Rivers. Well states. As for rating of your coaches I would rate Dungy great and for sure #1! As for the other four I would rate them all as average and would not rate one above the other. I, like EastSreet, am not yet sold on Reich.

  25. Two things to keep in mind: 1) Houston isn’t trading Watson to any AFC team, let alone one in its division; and 2) Detroit won’t trade Stafford to a NFC team. So, IMO, this topic ought to focus on the possible, not the fantasy. Stafford could very easily be traded to the Colts for their #1 this year and a future pick. And it would be worth it, because right now the Colts are in QB purgatory, and Stafford is better than the alternatives. Eason may one day be the answer. But you CANNOT go into next season relying on either him, Jacoby or a rookie draft pick. A move like this for Stafford is no

  27. Herbert beat out Taylor. Jackson and Mahomes showed a lot more early upside than Tua. Not even close. Sorry man. Didn't want Tua last year, don't want him now. Never thought he'd transition well to the NFL, and I still don't. I'd rather have Darnold, and I don't even like Darnold.

  28. Thanks. Our fan base has been criticized for some of the drunken shenanigans over the years, but overall most of us are down to earth hard working good Americans like most of NFL fans across the country. Over the years I’ve seen a lot of the Patriots, Steelers & recently the Chiefs fans turn into over bearing entitled douchbags, I really hope we as a fan base can continue being humble and down to earth with the recent and future success. Years of heartbreak & mediocrity help a lot......lol

Mike Pagel Art Schlister Matt Kofler Mark Herrmann Jack Trudeau Gary Hogeboom Chris Chandler Blair Kiel Tom Ramsey Jeff George Don Majkowski Browning Nagle Paul Justin Jim Harbaugh. That's 84 to 97 Harbaugh was the only pro bowler, and that was for the 95 season.

  32. I see a lot of "let them walk"... But I don't see any comment on how to fill all the holes from all those walking... A QB and a FA DE or LT contract could put a massive dent in our cap space. PR and AC leaving really have limited our options.

  34. Players do not stop progressing after four years. Most of the league sees player at least reach average or slightly above average play. There's a lot of average players in the NFL, but they individually get better at certain things over time. To say that players just have some magical cutoff at year 4 for progression is laughable.

  37. First choice would be Watson. He’s young and already elite. He immediately makes us a SB contender with another good draft class on top. As long as we don’t sell the farm in order to get him. Other than that, the 2nd choice would be trade up for one in the draft if we need to. Basically, anyone except Brissett.

  42. I hated the idea of Rivers coming here when it was first announced (ever since the RCA Dome incident) but over the course of the season, I realized he wasn't so bad. I appreciated he played better than I thought he would. Thanks for what you did for the Colts, Philip Rivers! Can't wait to see who's QB for Colts next season. Anyone but Brissett please!!

  44. I have been running mock drafts on The Draft Network, and almost every time, the Vikings offer a trade at 14 for our picks 21 and 164 in this year's draft, and our third rounder in next year's draft. In about half of the draft scenarios, Trey Lance is still on the board. I know there is a website that provides point values for various picks, so I guess I have two questions: 1) Is this viable in terms of value? 2) If it is, and Trey Lance is on the board, would you make this deal?

  45. Hooker played well in year one. He didn't play well when we changed to 2 high/C2. Not sure Walker will get the offer he wants. ILBs are one of the more fungible/devalued positions if not top tier. And the way Oke played, I'm happy to give Walker back some snaps. But I agree, if he gets the offer he wants, especially in a 3-4 D, he gone.
