  1. I have no idea what unlock the swag means, but I picked it anyway. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Lance dropped into the 2nd at all. He's got one full season as starter unless you count their lone 2020 game as a "full season." One year wonders are incredibly difficult to project. You're not surprised if someone takes him in the first, but you wouldn't be surprised if he fell into day 2 or even day 3. Trey Lance looked amazing in 2019 . . . against Div-II competition mind you. So move up to take Trey? It may not be necessary. Belicheck is definitely a guy that I could
  2. When I say "we" I mean you and me. The difference is the coaches have worked with Eason and already know where he is at developmentally. The activity with Eason is the Colts essentially saying, "Not only is he not good enough to be a backup to Rivers, we'd rather keep a 4th WR or special teams backups on the sidelines." Can that guy improve over the offseason? Sure. But whatever shot they give Eason is at best time as a backup QB. We already know the Colts do'nt want Brissett at the helm. Sure "we" collectively being us and the Colts staff, hasn't seen a rookie QB on take a
  3. Or draft a QB which is probably the best case scenario. I know we haven't seen Eason, but Eason never took a snap and was on and off the active roster. That's telltale sign enough for me that we should not expect only Eason and Brissett to battle for the starting job going into week 1. We absolutely should acquire a QB outside of Eason and Brissett.
  4. Stafford may cost more cap than Wentz, but the Eagles reportedly will make the cost to trade undesirable for most teams. Ballard doesn't seem to have a penchant for throwing mutiple high round picks for anything, much less a QB that we don't know whether he can return to his 2017 form. His most high profile trade was a 1st (plus contract extension) for Buckner. In terms of picks, it was simply player for pick. I always liked the idea of Wentz with Reich in Indy. I just don't want to give up multiple 1-3 round picks for him. I mean if the Colts did acquire him somehow, I think
  5. Definitely harder to find a stud LT, but these days, I wonder if the traditional blind side tackle position isnt as sought after as it once was with QBs being generally more mobile and offenses being tweaked to fit those sorts of QBs. Rivers doesnt necessarily qualify as the new mobile QB, so it makes sense to move Nelson to LT if we cant find a replacement. But I think Rivers is better off not having guys in his grill up the middle, TBH. So I think it best to leave Nelzon at LG and draft an LT.
  6. Not sure why an LT retiring would dictate the traits we should prioritize in a QB. How about we just get one that can handle the responsibilites we would expect in a QB (or any position for that matter) and meet and/or exceed those expectations?
  7. Since the first drive 2nd half, one * first down. Defense getting shredded. Just, I'm done.
  8. Why are we always playing the refs and ehoevers on our schedule...
  9. Maybe, but why? How? Scheme maybe? It makes no sense that he was an ascending talent since his rookie year and all the sudden in 2020 it goes downhill. Even with all his weapons injured last year, dude still was at least an average QB. Reitz was obviously his best years as a QB. But he stil played well even after his injury so we can't even say he pulled a Carson Palmer and was a shell of his former self after injury. The entire ordeal makes no sense. Trade and restructure, I'm on board with. Get him at a prove it level, but I am willing to bet Reitz, if anyone could bring
  10. Hurts had 14 total QB pressures, but was able to escape them. It was on the morning show here in Indy. Think the guy was quoting PFF. The difference is that Hurts has the legs to escape, similar to what's his nuts over there in Baltimore. So I am not totally buying that the line was all the sudden better when Hurts came in or that Wenz was so bad it made his OL look worse than it really is. It's probably somewhere in the middle.
  11. This is the freaking best one and I didn't even need to scroll down to see if there was any other competition.
  12. Thank God someone has some sense here...this thread is bananas and it could hardly get worse. I'll take a GM that his on 3 out of 7 picks, let alone have those picks be 2nd rounders. It's like the nincompoops here expect every 2nd rounder to be a hit. Show me one that has that sort of hit rate, ya know?
  13. I think the AFC gauntlet is a little tougher this year with the Chiefs, Ravens, Steelers and Titans. Not sure that whoever comes out the NFC east, Saints, Bucs or Seahawks could stack as well. At the very least, the Pack is more of a frontrunner amongst those teams than the Colts is in the AFC.
  14. Not gonna put either of us in the SB prematurely, but if that were the matchup, history wouldn't matter. A-Aron has the experience, and its often surprising how much of an affect that seems to make. And he's one of the greats. For us, at least Frank Reich's been there.
  15. Its what should happen. You could call hold or pass interference, or defensive holding on the vast majority of plays, but its never called that way. So when it actually is called that way, there's an appearanxe of unfairness, or impropriety... disproportionately at the very least.
  16. Lets put it this way...how often does a potentially game sealing drive end w 6 offensive holds in the final 2 minutes?
  17. Please...wth you supposed to do when its 3rd n 20? Use your head
  18. I'd rather watch him come in on the last series and take a knee...
  19. Well, this is true of course. But it's also true that it still ultimately rests on his shoulds - fair or unfair. I think it's totally okay to give him a sort of pass for a year, or even a few years. But at some point... Hope Eason is the guy, but I wasn't a huge fan pre-draft. We'll see how it goes, though. Still, we traded our first and I think it's fair to assume that's because Ballard didn't see any value in moving up or at least taking a QB in the first (or maybe he just saw more value in Buckner?). Burrow was probably out of reach but Herbert was within range and he's stolen t
  20. I definitely think trading him this season is out of the question. We've already planned for his presence on our payroll despite his actual pay. If we trade him after this season, it probably can be assumed we resign him in a backup roll and thus much less than $15 million per year. Assuming a backup QB pay, I'd definitely trade him for a 5th. But I can agree with you in the sense that that 5th rounder could be a swing and a miss.
  21. Dalton was never good. He had moments and that's the best I can really say. I don't want Cam at all. After seeing him give up on a fumbled football in the super bowl, I could never trust his leadership. The future signal caller for the Colts will come in the draft, hopefully Eason or a QB we draft in the next few years. I'm not entirely optimistic, but I certainly don't think a FA QB is the solution.
