    I will start by saying there are some great people on youtube. They split the games so you can see every play by a QB in an entire game in 8-15 minutes. And this past weekend my wife got sick, so as I was hanging around to take care of her, I watched every game available of the four QBs. I did not review Burrow, Tua, Herbert or Hurts, the first 3 because I think they will be gone by pick 13 and Hurts because I think the idea that he has a future as an NFL Qb is media hype because he seems like a hard working, likeable kid but he just does not seem like a QB to me. I will say upfront, some strengths or weaknesses cannot be seen on game film, such as leadership, work ethic, ability and desire to improve, etc. Anthony Gordon. Positives - He has great field vision. People talk about he's a product of the system, etc, etc. And it's true, in another system he would not have thrown for 5500+ yards and 48 TDs. On the flip side though, there are not many QBs would have have thrown for 5500+ yards and 48 TDs in Leach's system especially not 1st year starters. I believe he would have been successful in many other systems as well. Yes his receivers were wide open but when you watch multiple games those receivers were not always the first read (like some other Qbs I reviewed), he scans the field quickly, makes a decision and pulls the trigger. Which leads me to his next positive his release. The beauty of a quick release is that is does not give defenders time to react. Tied in with his field vision is he seems to not only see the entire field very quickly but he processes that information quickly. Many times I saw him scan the field then come back to his 1st read again, he was able to spot him instantly and throw the ball. Lastly, his anticipation is top notch. because of his ability to see the field and process the information, not only does he do an excellent job of anticipating where his receivers will be but also he does a great job of anticipating what the defenders will do, so because of that he is able to throw his receivers open on many occasions or put the ball where only his receiver can make a play on it. One last point on his receivers being wide open, for Love people like to blame the talent of his receivers... Gordon did not have any real talented receivers/TEs/Rbs either. they were open a lot because of the offensive system and because Gordon threw them open. Weaknesses - Has not footwork... at all. The coaches did him a disservice by not working on his throwing fundamentals. I don't mean his throwing motion but how to drop back and move while keeping the proper foot spacing and balance so the body can be in the correct position to throw. Mobility is lacking. He can move around in the pocket ok but that is about it, he seems to trip over his own feet when he tries to scramble. No feel in the pocket. He has good peripheral vision so he move when he sees the rush but he doesn't sense with the rush is coming. That was evident on several occasions when he was sacked standing flat footed. He makes some boneheaded decisions but whether they are bone headed decisions or lack of experience decisions I do not know. Overall, I think Gordon is an excellent pro prospect but he is at least a year away from being ready to play an NFL game and probably two years from being counted on as a starter. And that is assuming that A QB coach can work with him and he takes to coaching and is able to apply what he learns. That, combined with his 1 year as a starter in a college system that QBs have not transitioned well in the NFL, his slight stature at 6'2 199lbs, Gordon will probably not be drafted before the 5th round. Jacob Eason At first glance you wonder why Eason is not considered in the top with Burrow, Tua and Herbert but as you watch entire games it becomes obvious. Positives: IMO, Eason is the best QB in the draft at operating under center. I wish I would have kept stats but he looked incredible when operating under center... his drop backs were smooth and consistent, he scanned the field well while dropping back, he made a decision, planted his back foot and then had near perfect form in his throwing motion.... every time. His arm. Not just his arm strength but his throwing motion is nice and fluid and consistent, combined with his strong arm he can place the ball exactly where he wants, anywhere on the field, consistently. His mobility... yeas, I now a lot of people with disagree but he is a fluid, natural runner who can pick up yards with his legs when he needs to but he only has adequate speed. Plus he's a big, strong QB who will plow into the line to pick up a first down on 3rd/4th and short. negatives: He does not do a good job of handling pressure. His first move when the rush was coming was to spin backwards and roll left. In the first couple of games of the season that worked but it was obvious teams learned that was his move and really shut it down in the later games in the season. Since that seemed to be his only move to combat the rush, he will not get away with that in the NFL. And, even when he did escape the rush he was not good throwing while running to his left. His decision making. Several times you could see he had two receivers at two levels, the closer receiver would be very open, the receiver at the deeper level would be well covered, rather than throwing to the short receiver for a good gain, he would try to force the ball into the deeper receiver with very mixed results. Overall: I think Eason will be the 4th QB taken in the draft after Burrow, Tua (assuming he passes his physical) and Herbert. Eason, though reminds me a lot of Jeff George... all the tools and ability in the world it just seems something is lacking between the ears. I will be surprised if he stays in the NFL past his rookie contract. Jordan Love: This one is going to get me the most hate mail because a lot of people on this forum have bought the hype that he is Patrick Mahomes esqe and his poor play is a product of his team and coaches. And it is somewhat true but not totally. Positives: He is a smooth athlete with a good combination of touch and and power and accuracy on a lot of his throws. He is at his best when he's rolling to his right and throwing on the run. He seems to have good pocket awareness and can feel the rush around him even if he doesn't see it. Does not seem to panic under pressure. Has some escapability in him to extend plays when the pass protection breaks down. He seemed to have good control of the offense. Seems to be very competitive negatives: He cannot throw left. When you watch Love throw ahead or to the right, he has pretty good form (he relies on his arm too much but overall his form is fine) but when he throws to his his mechanics break down and his throw accuracy and velocity drop considerably. He is not good at presnap reads. Several of his interceptions were not because his receivers couldn't get open or because they had not separation, they were because his misread things at the LOS and threw the ball immediately after the snap. The rest of his INTs (not counting a couple that were in the desperation time towards the end of the game) were because he has a blind spot to underneath coverage. He stares down his receiver and the underneath coverage slides over and he is unaware of it. I'm not basing this on just the Wake Forest game but if you want to see multiple examples of this watch that game. He had was appears to be an impressive stat line with over 400 yards and 3 TDs but he also threw 3 INTs (2 of them were all because of Love, not the receivers, 1 was with 17 seconds left in the game and they were trailing) and could have easily had 2 more INTs if the defenders had not dropped the easy INTs. Overall, I do want to point out that even though the negative paragraph is longer than the positive paragraph, if you read closely, I do list more positives than negatives. Love definitely has some tools to work with but he does not work to be ready for the NFL. And personally I think his ceiling is about a Dak Prescott level.. someone who, if he's with a talented team will have some impressive wins but won't be the type of QB to win games when everything is on the line and he needs to outplay and out think the defense. It's funny after watching these games films Friday night and Saturday morning, I think watched the XFL on Saturday. So I'm watching the Houston Roughnecks and out trots, Indy's own practice squad king, P Walker as the starting QB, so I'm watching him play and he's doing well but I keep think that he reminds me of someone... then it hit me, Love plays just like Walker, same pocket movement, same throwing motion/style (Love does not pat the ball like Walker which is why Love may be able to make a career in the NFL), same arm strength, same running style and oddly enough same break down of mechanics when throwing left. Personally I think Love is a 3rd round talent that will be drafted higher and may sneak into the 1st round when team trades up to pick him towards the end of the round. Jake Fromm: Positives: Since I saw a lot of the positives from Fromm that have been discussed... accuracy, touch, anticipation on his throws, understanding of the offense, head for the game, etc. I won't go into great detail about that. Some of the positives I saw that don't seem to get talked about much. His competitiveness, to me this really popped out in watching his games and it's one of his best attributes. One of the ways I think this came through was on 3rd and long (6 yards or greater). All the Qbs above on 3rd and long, the majority of their throws were little 2 or 3 yard dump passes hoping the receiver makes a play. The majority of Fromm's passes on 3rd and long were near or past the sticks. That is someone that wants to keep the drive going not just playing it safe or being a game manager. His does not have scrambling ability like Wilson or Prescott or Watson, but he chooses to run at smart times and has enough speed to make positive yards and first downs when the team needs it. He can make accurate throws from different arm angles. Negatives: His arm strength is not elite but I would classify it is above average and I think it could move into the good category with proper mechanics. He does not consistently engage his hips and core when throwing, he's more of a step and lean thrower. But he made multiple 20-25 yard outs throws from the far hash both to the left and right side while fitting the ball into a tight window. He has enough arm strength for the NFL. The only other real negative I see in his game is if one rusher is pressing the pocket he can handle it well, if two are pressuring the pocket, he doesn't seem to know what to do and he is not the type to run around until he figures it out. Overall: I think Fromm is the most NFL ready QB in this group of 4, and IMO, even more NFL ready than Tue. People say he has a limited ceiling but I don't believe that to be the case (remember people said that about both Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning) but the ceiling is determined by how well he can read and recall defenses which is how all QBs who have long careers in the NFL keep improving and playing well year after year after year. and from all reports that is one of Fromm's greatest strengths. Since he is not ready to be a day one starter because of his throwing mechanics and lack of an elite arm, he could slip to the 2nd round but I could see either the Raiders drafting him at 19 or the Patriots drafting him at 23 if he's available. Which means, if the Colts want him, they will probably have to draft him at 13. 2 Side notes: If you want to see a game to convince yourself that Fromm is an NFL QB, watch the Georgia Notre Dame game, Georgia won that game because of Fromm and his competitiveness and toughness. Also, if you want to see another potential Colts pick watch the Georgia South Carolina game and you will see why Kinlaw would be a great 3T in the Colts D.

    Yesterday was a really sad day for me (as you can see by my picture). I wanted to read what many of my Colt's friends were thinking and it's pretty much as I expected, mixed, leaning towards no. However, as a very realistic observer and long time fan, I think Philip has another 2 years in him. Last year was another anomaly year in his career rather than a falling off the cliff. The last season that he had so many interceptions we had so many O Line injuries that we had 20+ different configurations over the season, AND Rivers was playing very hurt with a tough rib injury. Antonio Gates let that information out of the bag. This season the line issues were the same with a very high turnover and we didn't get a set lineup until quite late in the season. I think it was in the Green Bay game, Philip took a couple of really tough hits and the same type of floater passes he had with his rib injury started. I wonder if he was playing hurt again. Speculation but from a fan that has watched his delivery very closely for 16 years. At the very least he rarely had any time for the longer plays to develop and without the deep threat, and a running game that was damaged from Melvin Gordon's hold out and then mid-year insertion, D's were able to cheat up on us. A perfectly bad storm. On many of the throws, Rivers was picked too easily, which tells me he might have developed issues with either staring down a receiver or has a tell that is being picked up. That said, if your coach thinks he will work for your team he knows exactly what he's getting and how best to use him. I wouldn't at all be surprised if Phil has an amazing couple of years and calls it quits. A quick throwing middle to short passes, with quick crossing routes and running back dump offs offense worked really well to rehabilitate his career after his last bad year. Reich knows how well it worked and how good Rivers still is. If there is one thing I would like to see a new coach get rid of is the waiting until the last second while reading the D. It allows them to know exactly when they can go, that needs to be changed up. Up tempo and no huddle are all things that Phil knows and can execute flawlessly. I would love to see him go all the way with another team if mine isn't in the mix and rooting for the Colts would be an easy one for me.

    Below is a link to the first 3 rounds of the Draft Network Premium Slack Channel (if you’re not already a member I would highly recommend that you join) where I was representing our beloved Colts. https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/mock-draft-nfl-tdn-premium The link above will give analysis for the 1st 3 rounds but we carried on past these 3 rounds (currently in the 7th round now) and the Colts have taken the following: 13. Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina 34. Jordan Love, QB, Utah State 44. Prince Tega Wanagho, OT, Auburn 75. Kyle Dugger, S, Lenoir Rhyne 112. Michael Pittman, WR, USC 143. Albert Okwuegbunhan, TE, Missouri 174. Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame 192. DJ Wonnum, EDGE, South Carolina 205. Still to be picked but leaning either Elijah Riley from Army or Kindle Vildor from Georgia Southern ( both CBs) So how did I do? Was it good enough in your opinion? Did I absolutely nail it or did I do so badly that my Colts fan membership should be rescinded, let me know

    Yes and no. His GM did him no favours with stupid FA signings and maddening draft picks. And generally could never put a great team on the field. Pagano's clock management, and perceived lack of holding people accountable was not good. The idea of him being a soft coach really sunk him.

    Having a weak arm and unable to throw a decent deep ball is not important???? You're being serious? That gives every D in the league the license to cheat up every single plya/game and shorten the field. And the guy's lack of mobility won't translate well to the NFL. Not saying he needs to be a running threat, but he does need to be able to elude since he has limited arm strength. His AVG and or ANY/A will be horrible. There's a huge delta between a game manager and a gun slinger. And you'd be in the small minority of fans across the NFL that would be happy with a game manager. The guy is super duper ultra conservative. Drafting him would create a situation like the JB fan club prefers, which is build every single other position to make up for the deficiencies in the passing game. Even UGA fans wish they would have kept Fields. They hated the O with Fromm. He is absolutely afraid to throw the ball. If it isn't short and wide open, he's more likely to throw it away. He had one of the best OLs in CFB, and had a bunch of 5 star WRs and TEs to throw to, and was still ultra conservative and fearful of throwing into tight windows. He also has issues when rushed to throw the ball. He's decent when things go his way (has time, has an open short or intermediate open pass catcher), but not good at all when pushed. LOL..... Let's look at the SEC Championship.... Burrow was 74%.... Fromm was 47.6%........ His last 4 regular season games were under 50%.... Must have rained for like 5 weeks straight lol... By the way, I live in GA... I watch UGA almost every week so long as they're not on at the same time as ND....

    A coach is only as good as his co-ordinators and assistant coaches. The staff assembled wasn't impressive in the long run once Bruce Arians left, IMO. We had flashes of it but not much consistency in game planning, game in and game out on both offense and defense. Playing Vontae Davis on Antonio Brown when he did better vs big bodied WRs too many times to see it fail, not being prepared enough for defending wham blocks by the TE from NE for several games etc. are just a few examples off the top of my head. Andrew Luck, like Peyton Manning, covered a lot of blemishes on the roster. Plus, without OL upgrades, dusting off the Arians playbook and running longer developing routes as a big part of your offense eventually was bound to catch up with Luck and it did. Pagano was supposed to be a defensive guru but our D stunk for the most part, if you ask me, mainly due to lack of talent. When Pagano had talent like the Ravens had when he was DC or the Bears have right now when he is currently DC, he shone. You can be a mild mannered coach all you want but you need to make the right adjustments and game plans to win week in and week out. Having Manning and Luck can make head coaches look good, now Reich will have to earn his stripes with a new QB.
  18. 2 points
    How many years do you want to set the franchise back? Throw this year away? Then hire a new coach and staff the following year with a rookie QB who might or might not work out when this team is ready to win now with the right QB. Doesn't make sense.

    I guess he is saying his WR were so bad that when he gets nfl caliber WR they will get open more then they did at Utah state. Giving him a bigger window to throw. That is a scary thought for teams playing against him.

    I hate to be a buzzkill, but Leonard was not snubbed for DPOY. He said himself that he had a poor start to the season (by his, admittedly, high standards) and then he missed a few games. He ended the year in DPOY form, no doubt about it, but he was not in the conversation for the award, based on the overall year, in my opinion. Nick Bosa would have been my choice, but Gilmore is not a terrible choice.
  21. 2 points
    That's simply not true. There has been plenty of all-22 captures showing multiple guys wide open. And I'm not talking about TY. I'm talking about guys like Pascal, Rogers, Doyle, and the rest of the misfits. Doyle was also top 5 in separation out of all WRs/TEs in the league... JB's vision was just plain awful. I've laid out his 2018 vs 2019 seasons a few times on the board (not doing it again), but he has horrible pass catching support. He lost his top 5 pass catchers, and his best pass catcher in 2019 was a grad transfer from Utah who couldn't crack the starting lineup there. His WRs were also incredibly slow (horrible 40s) and small (IIRC)
  22. 2 points
    I agree the Bears would probably be about the best fit. LAC would fit to an extent as it has a strong Poly culture and the fan base might be able to get behind him. Nobody really sees Rivers as a long term fit. He'd just be a bridge/mentor for a few years. JB isn't bad enough, and most QBs would not be bad enough, to put us into a position to get Lawrence or Fields. The surrounding cast is too good to really tank that bad.
  23. 2 points
    I like it. It says you're not going to throw away 2020. There's no reason why Rivers can't hand the ball off for 4 quarters like Brissett did. He might also, however, be able to push it down the field occasionally and make a play or two in the 4th quarter.
  24. 2 points
    I think he does. The other option is Brissett and we’ve already gone down that road. The Colts have a much better running game and offensive line to protect him. Colts also have a coaching staff that will undoubtedly adapt to where he’s at in his career.

    The most remarkable stat for Jordan Love - 23 big time throws when receivers had 1 step or more of separation, only 2 turnover worthy plays. He was second in the entire nation only behind Joe Burrow and Burrow was throwing to Ja'marr Chase and Justin Jefferson and Terrace Marshall and Thad Moss, etc.

    He also missed 4 games too. Personally I think Nick Bosa should’ve won the award though.

    WRs, more than any other position, can come out of nowhere. Don't get me wrong, I'd love a first round stud, but right now we have other priorities. I do like Fountain's measureables, but he was very raw. He looked to have polished things up quite a bit in preseason (he spent a lot of time with trainers). His route running was noticeably improved. Again, not saying he's going to be a stud. But he does have the physical traits to be very good. Winning the MVP at the Senior Bowl wasn't a fluke IMO. At worst, I think he'd be a great back up for TY and Campbell in the Z/Slot space. Not sure how he is against the press, but maybe even a fit at deep X. He's got 4.4s speed and a great vert. If he can run good routes and catch the ball, I like his chances.

    I'd love the Espenesa pick he's a perfect Ballard pick a long DE that can play the weak side and shut down the run aswell as being able to move inside, mich like an upgraded Autry in 2018. Fromm would be a decent pick, I doubt he will be nearly as good, He reminds me of Dalton but he also has a similar draft profile as Brees when he was drafted. I'd prefer Eason but really don't want Love in the 1st as an armchair GM. I don't know much about Aiyuk so no comment on that pick.

    So it’s clear you’ve done no real research in Love. Turnover machine? You realize he played 3 years of college right? Only in his final one did he throw a lot of INT’s. He threw 6 in 2018 and then 17 in 2019. Not a turnover machine by any means. That drastic of a change means something happened. Others have already discussed what happened with him his final year. Theres nothing wrong with not liking Love or Herbert, but you should at least have an informed opinion and not something you got from looking at a stat line. Especially if you’re basing it on one year. Like many I think you should look at pick 13 with an open mind. I want a Kinlaw or Jeudy at 13 just as bad as anyone and I hate the idea that we possibly have to burn a 1st on a QB, but that’s the reality. I understand that the guys outside of Burrow and Tua have their flaws, but understand that this isn’t 1998 or 2012. The Colts don’t have the #1 overall pick with a generational talent at QB to pick. This type of situation is what other teams go through all the time. It’s our turn. Can’t be lucky for ever.

    he was drafted in 2017 he is good better then brain check down hoyer. rather resign him and have him and chad kelly battle it out for the number 2 spot . we have 3 QBs now i rather have walker as the 3rd QB over hoyer who has been in the league for 10 years and is horrible . at least walker is 24 and can improve hoyer is at his peak and is horrible .

    Less of a report and more of a prediction. However, it would take a ton to get up that high to be able to draft him, so it ultimately depends on if Ballard is willing to use a lot of draft capital to move up, which we haven't seen from him thus far.

    I’ve been an outspoke critic of the XFL since it was announced it was coming back. I’ve been a very outspoken critic of Vince McMahon for over a decade now. That said, I have to give credit where it’s due: The XFL has its ducks in a row. The AAF was dead in the water before they were even in the water. They started out shooting from behind the 8 ball and needed a litany of lucky breaks to have even a minuscule chance of survival. You could almost even argue that the AAF was an exercise in fraud. It was dead on arrival. The XFL originally stunk of a PR stunt. It was during the height of the protest bashing, and here comes Vince talking about a league where that sort of thing won’t be tolerated. Ok, sure. But all along this journey McMahon has done the right thing. There’s a podcast about the original XFL that is simply fantastic. If you want to get almost a first hand experience of what it was and why it went as wrong as it did it is MUST LISTEN material. It’s from one of the guys who was Vince’s right hand man at that time, Bruce Prichard. It’s episode 28 of his podcast “Something to Wrestle”. Bruce goes into amazing detail about what really went on, and you’ll be amazed at what you learn from what he has to say. All of those mistakes he made that time around he is avoiding this time. He’s got a great mind in Oliver Luck as commissioner. They have a very solid business plan in place. But most of all they have the money in place. Vince knows he’s going to have to lose money to ever make it back. And he’s prepared for that. He sold off a ton of his WWE stock, to the tune of almost 300 million dollars to begin funding this. He’s not walking into this needing multiple life-saving investors the way the AAF did. Vince also walks in with a crazy good TV deal in place. These games are getting major network coverage. Every week. The AAF had a date with CBS and then went dark. The XFL has games on ABC, Fox, or ESPN every week. And Vince is a veteran of TV deals, so you can bet he got great terms on those deals. The other big thing that you may wind up seeing is players skirting the NCAA and going from high school to the XFL to play until they are NFL eligible. The NCAA doesn’t want to pay the players, the XFL does. This iteration of the XFL is, by far, the most well rounded attempt at a spring league that has ever taken place. And Vince isn’t going to just abandon it like he did last time after a season. I think he’s going to run this league for at least 5 years sinking whatever kind of money into it that it takes to do so. (And he can. That 300 million I mentioned earlier is just startup change. Vince will throw another 500 at it no questions asked.) Will it ultimately be successful? I honestly can see it being so if it becomes an alternative to the NCAA. Players leave high school and go to the XFL, play three years, and declare for the NFL draft. That’s not to say I don’t see it failing like all the rest. That is the likely outcome. But this attempt right here at starting an alternative league has the best shot at succeeding than any before it, and probably any we’ll ever see again.
