  1. I see the makings of a ball control offense. A solid runnings game will make our passing offense go. Mack, Taylor, Wilkins and Hines. I like it
  2. He has very good physical tools. When you stop and think about he really has not played a lot of college ball. I think he is in the right system with Reich and Rivers to help school him. He also has the benefit of a good offensive line and talent at wide receiver and running back. This team will be more of a ball control offense vs. what we had with Peyton and Luck. I think this was a good pick. HE has a lot of upside and could emerge as a top flight QB. at worse he is a 4th round pick who may be an average QB. I think the upside far outweighs the downside particularly when he falls to us in 4th round.
  3. My view is that Colts will only hold onto Brissett if they do not get a QB in draft. If they get a QB that they want to groom as a back up then they may flip JB for a draft pick.
  4. CB and Safety are big needs. Was surprised by cut. I presume Colts see upgrades in FA class and may opt to sign a CB who they believe is an upgrade. We are really thin at Safety position. I am also surprised that Colts are stating that they would hold on to JB. I would guess we would trade him for a pick and look at QB in draft to groom in either 2nd or 3rd round. Primary needs are: CB/S; WR, TE, QB Secondary needs: OL, DL, LB,RB
  5. Colts need OL depth. We are very thin after our starting 5. I see us adding depth in draft. Would be nice if we can add some quality via FA - not sure how much quality is available.
  6. JB back to Pats is not a bad thought. I would trade him back for a draft pick. Doubt he would fetch more than a #3. I would like to stockpile another extra pick to fill other needs
  7. He went to Stanford and he is a cerebral kind of guy. However, I think the issue with Andrew is not playing elsewhere. It is a question if he really wants to play. As of now I think he is comfortable as a non-player. Perhaps, he gets the bug to play and dons the helmet in Indy or we trade him elsewhere. We win in either scenario. If he unretires and plays for the Colts he makes us a contender. If we trade him we stockpile some picks and that should make us better as well. For now my money says he stays retired.
  8. Hard to dismiss his first 7 starts last year when he played well. his performance fell off on his last 9 games. I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that he had very little support from the receiving corps in the last 9 games due to injuries. With that said, I am not ready to declare that JB is our future. I do think he holds the starter role but I also think we draft a QB either in round 1 or 2 and groom that pick to be our future starter. I am not sold on us signing Rivers or another veteran QB to be replacement for JB.
  9. I think we should draft a QB in round 1. I would hate to trade picks to move up. If we can get Love or Herbert at #13 I am fine. Some boards are predicting tua will fall to 13. If true then we are essentially committing Brissett for next year and looking at Tua in 2021. The other QBs would be fine if we are looking at #2 or #3 rounds and using our #1 for DL or WR. I think our top need is a big stopper on DL. We might need to look at FA to fill that need. We also have to score at WR, TE, and need to look at OL - LT or Guard.
  10. Hardly a ringing endorsement on JB. JB's performance was the tale of two cities. In first 7 games he looked solid. Last 9 his play ranged from mediocre to terrible. Perhaps some of that is due to injuries with receiving corps but JB seemed to struggle in all aspects of the passing game 2nd half of the season. I suspect he starts the season as our #1 but I see CB drafting a QB to be his replacement at some point next years if JB fails to rebound.
  11. loved both of these guys. Bert was fun to watch. He had a cannon for an arm. Watching him throw balls to Carr and Chester was a thing of beauty. Absolutely enjoyed Luck. The guy made an average team play well. His rookie season was a joy to watch particularly the shoot out with KC in playoffs. Last season Luck really put this team on his back and made them a winner. Statistically, Luck has the better stats but that is a product of the game changing. Also Luck got to play most of his games indoor. Bert had the swirling winds of Old Memorial stadium to contend with. Both were leaders and champions. It is unfortunate that injuries cut down both their careers.
  12. whatever it takes. Get Burrows. give them 3 #1 picks. Get it done.
  13. I wouldn't put all of blame on JB play but it is apparent that he is at best an average QB. He is not going to win games on his passing ability. We had no receivers all season. our TE play is not great. Doyle is not a vertical receiving threat. He is a possession type receiver. We have a good OL for running the ball. However the pass blocking has not been great. Not sure if that is on the line or JB's tendency to hold onto ball too long.
