  1. Look, I've been a supporter of Jacoby's and have given him the benefit of the doubt all season. But these are the games that you need your QB to step up and make a play. Yes, there were drops. Yes, TY was barely playing. Yes, we need more help at WR. But... to have only 4 completions to your receivers, against this banged up secondary is unacceptable. So the story is either: 1. Our receivers are so bad that they were literally covered all game and couldn't make a single play. 2. Jacoby wasnt willing or able to throw the ball. It's likely a mixture of both. But still, to average 160ish passing yards in 2019 is unacceptable. With this offensive line, these TEs and RBs...all I know is Andrew dealt with trash at virtually every position and made it happen. Jacoby is a great a backup, but hes not a game-changing playmaker outside of his escapeability. When it comes to reading defenses or getting into the correct playcall or throwing a receiver open, that's not his strong suit. I love Jacoby the person. I'm thankful to have him as a Colt. But this game made my decision. It's clear to me now, we need to draft a new Quarterback.
  2. Thank you for the kind words, everyone. This isn't the path we wanted, but Ballard and Reich will get us through it. I have faith.
  3. This is my first time being on the forum since Andrew retired. It took me a long time to accept it and get past it, as I was basically heartbroken for a multitude of reasons. All the respect in the world to him, I'll miss him, and I wish him happiness and health in life above all. But, looking ahead to 2019, Jacoby's extension, etc... This may be kinda long because I haven't said much in a while. Before I get to my main topic of discussion, I'd like to reiterate some points that have been made by others here that I agree with. 1. The length and price of Jacoby's extension is perfect. Team takes care of him, but protects themselves and has a chance for that deal to be a major bargain. 2. This team is loaded and cannot and will not tank for a QB. 3. The fact that they extended Jacoby now vs after the season shows their belief in him isn't hyperbole, it wasn't just smoke to try to drum up a trade. It's real. 4. If Ballard and Reich believe in Jacoby, they have earned our trust up to this point, and therefore we need to trust their evaluation of him and put our faith in him as well. 5. My biggest point of emphasis...Ballard and Reich did the best they could with the Luck situation. Things moved quickly, they tried to handle it internally, they hoped Andrew would reconsider, but he didn't. Ballard is always as direct and honest with us as he can be. He obviously should never come out and say "Andrew is considering retirement" and putting everyone into a panic... he needed to let that process play out before he involved us. I trust him completely...and if anything, I feel absolutely terrible that this happened to him. But I know he will navigate us through it and we will win. But, onto my actual topic... While I do believe Jacoby is a very good QB, I think his extension actually tells us what they're thinking internally. "We trust you, but we don't know for sure what your ceiling is, so go out and prove it and then you'll be compensated." But what makes me excited about this is that, yes, this is an evaluation year for Jacoby, and the team could not be set up more perfectly to see how good he can actually be. The roster is loaded. Top 5 O-line, tons of weapons on offense, an offensive head coach with a high end scheme and playcalling, a top 12 defense with all the starters returning, along with big additions like Houston and Rock. There are zero excuses for Jacoby. In 2017 there were A LOT. Just traded to the team, new playbook, new teammates, new scheme, new terminology, terrible o-line, no weapons outside of TY and Doyle, beyond awful coaching and playcalling... I mean... literally everything that could go wrong did go wrong for Jacoby in that season. Yet we had 4th Quarter leads in 9 games. With a much much much worse roster. This year, he's had virtually every single starting rep all offseason, 2nd year in the system, and the team is better at every level. Regardless of how this season plays out (which I think we will be successful and still make the playoffs), we will have a definitive, black and white answer about our future at the QB position.
  4. Its absolutely ridiculous.
  5. The disrespect was someone here calling him soft, not people worrying about him.
  6. Omg everyone scream Andrew is done for the sea....oh. CALLLLLM DOWNNNN people.
  7. This is incorrectly represented though. The way you're speaking is as if they mislead us. That was never the case. The problem simply was Andrew's shoulder never healed the way it was supposed to throughout the process. Lets not act like Ballard is a liar in any way, we all know hes not.
  8. You're probably smart for doing that in all honesty.
  9. Again, I'm not saying you have no reason to worry. But being behind on training camp reps is not a reason to bench one the best QBs in the game. Being behind on training camp reps isnt a reason to insult him and call him soft. Being behind on training camp reps isnt going to ruin this season. Take some advice from Aaron Rodgers and RELAX. Until we hear it's more severe, it doesn't seem like a major problem.
  10. Being concerned is fine. Calling this dude soft and suggesting we start someone else over him is COMPLETE LUNACY.
  11. Lol...some of you are hilarious. This dude missed over a year of football, strolled back in to a new offense with all new pieces and lit the league up and became an MVP candidate. Dude misses a couple training camp practices and now its "OMG WE NEED TO START JACOBY OTHERWISE THIS SEASON IS OVER!! HE'S SOFT!" Insert massive eye roll Gif here. Absolute nonsense. So disrespectful.
  12. Sheard is a DE, so no.
