  1. Yep kind of agree. And the moment this becomes even a question is the moment GMs become reckless and try to force things to save their jobs. Not saying this is what will happen with Ballard, but he's a human too and he's subject to the same emotions numerous other smart GMs on the hot seat have felt. You never know. There are just too many examples of GMs making a complete mess of the future of a team while trying to keep their jobs. I don't think saving money is close to the top of Irsay's priorities. He wants a winning football team before all else. He's never b

  3. Colts played the 3d easiest pass-defense schedule and still couldn't throw against it. Yuck!

  4. The front office will have a plan if JB turns out not to improve enough. That means either they draft someone who would take over, or we sign a free agent, or we trade for someone. Not worried about Ballard. If he’s doing nothing else, he’s saving Irsay a TON of money. Every year we are way below the salary cap. That’s real money CB is saving Irsay. I don’t see him pulling the plug on his GM or his HC.

  5. I would personally love for JB to improve. The kind of leadership he has you don’t just find on trees. I would love for him to do the following: I would love to see him Reich as often as allowed. I would also love him with Tom House a ton to perfect that throwing motion. Try to slim fine just bit yo gain more speed. Finally I would love, I mean love, if he did something like mark sanchez did (jets west) or Peyton did at duke. We’re he just threw balls with his WR to get the timing down, for a camp/team bonding experience.

  6. I guarantee that's not a picture of his kid. I also get the impression I've missed a merge here as it seems like most were venting against another Brissett topic (fair IMO), but your response was a bit OTT IMO.

  11. I have often wondered when exactly there was discussion in reference to Luck retiring. And if that’s when the Jacoby chatter started about not trading him, etc, etc. began from the FO. Kinda surprised nobody ever mentioned this.

  12. Before or after they knew Andrew was retiring?

  13. I know the Brissett piling on has been non-stop. And I think it is deserved. I think the part that is most confusing to me is why did any of you think he was going to be any good? What evidence was there to back that up other then the Colts calling him a franchise QB? So let's back up. Brissett was a 3rd round pick of the Patriots. It happens, but rarely do 3rd round or lower QBs become franchise QBs. There is always a Russell Wilson, Joe Montana, or Tom Brady who breaks the rule, but that is rare. So he gets traded to the Colts, starts in 2017, wins 4 games, and shows an alarmi

  14. If it feels like that, you can blame Reich and Ballard for the reaction. They built Brissett up into something he wasn't. Six months ago few Colts fans thought he was a franchise QB, but then Luck retires and Frank is praising Brissett as a top end QB and wonderful human being - the kind of guy you want your daughter to marry. Ballard gives him the contract and calls him the greatest leader since George Patton, etc. Had they not done this, had they just said, okay, Jacoby's gonna get a chance and we'll see what happens, Brissett wouldn't be receiving the same type of the negative reaction

  15. That's the thing I don't get too. And I've seen it both ways BTW by the same people here - "Jacoby didn't have great weapons so are we sure we can evaluate him fairly?" and at the same time "Tua had so many great weapons, are we sure we can evaluate him fairly?"... so lets be clear then... what is the exact situation where we can evaluate a QB? We can't evaluate them when they don't have weapons, we can't evaluate them when they have great weapons... the argument just flips whichever way feels right at the moment. So yeah... having weapons matters in some ways, having trust in you

  16. Why do we waste the money to have him coached by Tom House? Isn't that classroom and practice? What I'm tired of is 'He's hurt', 'no healthy receivers', 'No decent receivers', 'no open receivers', 'OL has regressed', was put in 2 bad situations', '2017 doesn't count', 'AV cost us 2-3 loss and was no cause of JB', 'Hines fumble cost us the TN game', etc.

  17. "Trash." "Bash." Come on. 'He had a bad situation.' 'Fans are spoiled because he's not Manning or Luck.' Stop it. JB is limited as a QB in a lot of ways. We've known it since before he was drafted. He played admirably in 2017, but his limitations were obvious then, and I said it then. This board, and the coaching staff, and certain media members, all pumped JB up in 2018 as if he were a more promising prospect than he actually is. And when he took over in 2019, I pointed out his limitations. As this season has gone on, I've continu

  18. Keep those excuses coming! First Adam, now Jacoby. Any other players underperforming that we can make an excuse for? If your healthy enough to be trotted out there week after week, and never miss a rep in practice, then you are going to be judged on your performance without any excuses attached.
