  1. What I meant is: logically- if JB is good enough for a team to want him enough to offer a trade, then we need to keep him. What I fear is- no other team sees him as good enough to offer anything for his services. He sounds like a great guy for the locker room, but not a winning QB. To me, it appears the rest of the NFL has his tendencies figured out.
  2. Ok- let me rephrase it, leaving out the Salary: Why would anyone trade for JB, a Backup? Winston and Newton haven't found teams, as FA.
  3. Why would anyone trade for JB, a Backup, making $21 million- when Winston and Newton haven't found teams as FA?????
  4. Thank You! Great pick of Four. Most people think of History as only since the time of their birth. Unitas played in the mid-1950s thru 1973. The bulk of the posters on here weren’t even born yet when he was leading the NFL. The way football was played then, Unitas was beaten to a pulp every game- not protected like under today’s rules. He wanted to go to Norte Dame, but they said he was so skinny, he wouldn’t survive. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Unitas Johnny Unitas Unitas in 1967 No. 19Position:QuarterbackPersonal informationBorn:May 7, 1933 Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaDied:September 11, 2002(aged 69) Baltimore, MarylandHeight:6 ft 1 in (1.85 m)Weight:196 lb (89 kg)Career informationHigh school:St. Justin's (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)College:LouisvilleNFL Draft:1955 / Round: 9 / Pick: 102Career history Pittsburgh Steelers (1955)* Baltimore Colts (1956–1972) San Diego Chargers (1973) * Offseason and/or practice squad member onlyCareer highlights and awards Super Bowl champion (V) 3× NFL champion (1958, 1959, 1968) 10× Pro Bowl (1957–1964, 1966, 1967) 5× First-team All-Pro (1958, 1959, 1964, 1965, 1967) 3× Second-team All-Pro (1957, 1960, 1963) 3× AP NFL Most Valuable Player (1959, 1964, 1967) 3× Bert Bell Award (1959, 1964, 1967) NFL Man of the Year (1970) 4× NFL passing yards leader (1957, 1959, 1960, 1963) 4× NFL passing touchdowns leader(1957–1960) NFL 1960s All-Decade Team NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team Indianapolis Colts No. 19 retired Louisville Cardinals No. 16 retired Career NFL statistics Pass attempts:5,186 Pass completions:2,830 Completion percentage:54.6 TD–INT:290–253 Passing yards:40,239 Passer rating:78.2 Player stats at NFL.com Player stats at PFR Pro Football Hall of Fame For 52 years, he held the record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (set between 1956 and 1960), until it was broken in 2012 by Drew Brees Possibly the most ironic- the Steelers had drafted him. They cut him, but kept Ted Marchibroda, who fizzled as a player- and later coached the Colts.
  5. JB was pretty reliable on 4th and 6”. Colts haven’t had that in decades. I wouldn’t want Rivers to do it and get hurt.
  6. Unitas was the NFL All 50th Anniversary Team QB. Without him and the Colts 58 Overtime Championship on National TV, there probably wouldn’t be an NFL today. So he was my vote. Side note- Lenny Moore was also recognized on that team- yet many on here don’t even recognize him in the Colts Top Ten!?!?!? Most ratings, prior to Brady’s success- rate Montana as by far The Best. I still rate Joe as better than a Brady. I personally enjoy Peyton as my Favorite Person who had an NFL Career. Not only innovative and successful, but fun-loving and Charitable. Archie and Olivia raised a Keeper, for sure!!!
  7. EVERY Colt QB will be a FA after this season. With the slot completely open, Kelly has his best chance to start right here, should he develop and fly right this year. Rivers, Brissett, and Kelly are all on their last year of their contracts.
  8. Good thing you didn’t play for the Colts. Jim Parker was Colts AllTime Greatest Lineman ever. They retired 77 in his honor. But I understand your sentiment. I still have my 1970-71 High School 52.
  9. That’s odd, since Gordon threw 3 TDS in that Bowl. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001099037/article/washington-state-qb-anthony-gordon-shines-in-senior-bowl
  10. Sure Does. Peyton couldn’t “win the big one” when he was #16. They gave him Pagel’s 18, and became a Hall of Famer!!!!!! Good thing we never retired Sam Havrilak’s 17, or Rivers would have never come here.... (all done in jest)
  11. So Funchess left because he didn’t want to lose his number????
  12. I suggested Phillips and Parham the day the XFL stopped. I didn’t know there was a delay allowing signings. I wondered why none were signed yet.
  13. CB wants to do what's right for all parties, so I applaud him. I compare it to , in the 1930s, during the Depression, my Grandparents couldn't afford to raise my Dad, so they sent him to a better able to afford him Uncle to raise. All parties came out better. Now, the Colts cant afford JB as a Backup. JB could be dealt worse scenarios. So could the Colts.
  14. Stidham was about the 4th highest ranking HS QB. He lit it up at Baylor, but was amid the Art Briles controversy. He transferred to Auburn, a running team. Reports are he was amazing, picking up BBs playbook. Plus, he sat a year behind/studying Brady....
  15. I doubt JB beats out Stidham for the Starting Spot.
