  1. Rank QB's Worst to First. Forget statistics, just let's see where we all agree/disagree from a pure spectator standpoint. 32) Chargers QB (?) 31) Mitchell Trubisky (Chi) 30) Dewayne Haskins (Wash) 29) Cam Newton (NE) 28) Drew Lock (DEN) 27) Ryan Fitzpatrick (Miami) 26) Joe Burrow (Cin) (Rook) 25) Teddy Bridgewater (Caro) 24) Garner Minshew (Jax) 23) Sam Darnold (NYJ) 22) Derrick Carr (LV) 21) Ryan Tannehill (Tenn) 20) Daniel Jones (NYG) 19) Jimmy Garapolo (SF) 18) Baker Mayfield (Cleve) 17) Carson Wentz (Philly) 16) Josh Allen (Buff) 15) Kirk Cousins (Minn) 14) Jared Goff (LAR) 13) Phillip Rivers (Colts) 12) Ben Rothlisberger (Pitt) 11) Matthew Stafford (Det) 10) Matt Ryan (ATL) 9) Deshaun Watson (Hou) 8) Kyler Murray (AZ) 7) Dakk Prescot 6) Tom Brady (TB) 5) Drew Brees (NO) 4) Russell Wilson (SEA) 3) Aaron Rodgers (GB) 2) Lamar Jackson (Balt) 1) Patrick Mahomes
  2. My new Anthem... Let me know if you like it Sung in the tune of America the beautiful Oh Cha-Ha-Had, Oh Cha-Ha-Had Oh Cha-Ha-Had Kell-EEE Oh Cha-Ha-Had, It makes me sad That the Colts haven't released Jay-Beeeee Sorry guys and girls.. Had to do it. Just to lighten the mood a bit. Let's hope this doesn't divide us, but unite us in laughter!!
  3. Kap and a whole group of players have adamantly stated that kneeling was NEVER about disrespecting the flag or any service members associated with it, so if players chose not to stand for the anthem after giving them the opportunity to kneel before the anthem moment I would say that all of their proclamations that it had nothing to do with the disrespect would have ultimately been lies.
  4. Before each game, ALL the players take a knee in a moment of silence for the cause before the National Anthem aspect of the games are considered. Once that moment of silence has concluded, then ALL players and fans stand for the National Anthem as the loud speakers always have instructed us to do. Then we play football. This solves it and I for one would believe that no fan or player or anyone would object to this. I personally don't have a twitter, but my buddy has tweeted this idea out to the prez and I would ask that if any of you have a twitter might do the same. Either tweeting the prez, the nfl, or Irsay or all of the mentioned. Whoever. What we don't need right now is anymore division within anyone or anything.
  5. Thanks for that but it was satire
  6. Why wait Phil. Start coaching this year buddy . Im sure Irsay would let you keep the money. Luck would attest to that
  7. I posted this in another thread and regardless of whatever "fun" this thread is suppose to incite, and regardless of whether or not you like my metaphors, this is the "Current" problem below I think this organization and fanbase is at an internal crossroads and I think it really isn't any real fault of their own at the foundational issue that has caused this. Not bashing Luck, but being completely honest, Luck set this team into a cracked foundation, a crack we have not yet been able to seal properly. Where I do believe that this organization has, for the most part, built upon that foundation that was damaged or not laid correctly by Grigson, the missing piece is the piece that stabilizes the base and that is the QB. We ALL know this. I think the reason they have been so adamant about JB all along is that JB possess a lot of characteristics that normally, a sound structural part of a foundation would hold and through the first half of last season it seemed, even though not completely solidifying that quickly, that the crack might have a chance to eventually be sealed once it completely dried. Unfortunately though, that sealant(JB) never completely solidified and remains wet to the touch as we speak and began to seep out the sides of the crack, and that has bewildered everyone to as why? Why didn't JB completely solidify into that crack? Rivers, Kelly, and Eason are all band-aids at this point, with Rivers being the largest band-aid in the box. Rivers cannot be the sealant this team is looking for long term only because his cannister is pretty close to being empty. Whether it be Kelly or Eason, JB, or someone else, this team will never be completely rock solid at it's foundation until the void of a QB is sealed properly. IMO, this organization needs to completely scrape out and remove JB from this foundation to allow either Kelly or Eason the opportunity to completely solidify and fill that void, and if the organization still wants that to be JB then fine, but every ounce of his substance needs to be completely removed from that crack, allowing Kelly, Eason, and JB an equal shot to see who can solidify completely the quickest without any head starts or partially filled cracks. Filling a void partly with one substance that only slightly solidifies and then starts to either seep or break apart(JB), then slapping a patch over that area to stop the seeping while hoping it solidifies underneath(Rivers), and if that doesn't work entirely, entertaining the idea of using another substance to add to the part of the original substance that solidified partially in hoping each will bond together to fill the void, just won't work. Any builder will tell you that in order to get proper adhesion you must have one substance and one substance alone that will completely solidify and if the substance doesn't solidify on the first take, you clean out the area entirely and fill it again, you don't add to it and hope two substances gel together. IMHO, this organization needs to completely remove JB entirely from the foundation, however if they believe that JB can still completely solidify and just needs a little more time to dry under the patch of Rivers, we won't have that QB void completely solidified anytime soon.

    And for that matter if the Colts would've started Hoyer those last two games I would be more inclined to agree with you about Kelly, but they didnt and some on here suggested that Colts already saw Hoyer was bad so that's why Hoyer didnt play those final two games but we hadn't seen if Kelly was bad so none of us can say if he would've been. That's in large part why Im firmly in belief about their plan with Brissett ladt year from the jump. It's a head scratcher

    That is the million dollar question in regards to the last two games. All signs point to something methodical towards Brissett though. Even now, they are still giving the world the impression they believe in this guy where clearly everybody could see his abilities on the field were not elite. It's not a knock on Brissett, it's just not what everybody involved with this organization thought was going to take place, but instead of just being honest about what everyone already knows, this little game keeps being played. Kelly should have started those last two games because short of an extra couple possible wins on the final record, those two games meant nothing to last year's outcome and yet they still kept Brissett in and the most disturbing thing was Reich saying they were going to try some new wrinkles to help Brissett, in WEEK 15? It's almost as if they can't believe how wrong they were about Brissett and kind of are refusing to just cut bait and admit the mistake. The Jags went back to Foles and Foles stunk, then they went back to Minshew. Minshew, even though had some growing pains, gave a fire to the jags foles and bortles did not and I think Kelly would've done the same for the Colts. Colts just can't give up on Brissett for whatever reason that is.

    Cheezy what are you talking about here? How is this a conspiracy? Do you honestly believe any team in the NFL, who pays a back-up QB 9 million dollars is going to ever have a 3rd string/practice squad player unseat them without an injury? If you do, show me one NFL team where that has happened? If Hoyer was only getting 1-2 mil/ 1 year contrct than I would agree, Kelly could've easily replaced Hoyer based on earning it. But Hoyer got 3 yrs. 9mil. Come on? On Brissett, do you honestly believe based on all things being equal that Hoyer or Kelly were ever going to supplant Brissett last year on anything other than a major Injury to Brissett? Exactly. So what is it with this non-sense about conspiracy's?
  12. Um no, I never suggested anything like that. I basically said Gilmore would never be involved in a Brissett trade to New England if in fact Brissett was ever traded to New England. I think Brissett back to new England would make sense, however NEVER would be Gilmore imo be traded to Indy in any deal, much less one as the OP threw out there

    You my friend are wrong. Kelly did not get his shot based on this: 1) Brissett given a FULL season to be the future. Call it seniority, call it based on how much the organization hyped this guy, call it a locker room likeability/locker room leader, call it what you will, but it was a decision made by the brass behind the scenes once Luck retired where barring a season ending injury, Brissett was going to start an entire season without a controversy of being replaced regardless of performance. 2) Hoyers monetary contract. Say what you will, however there was no way Kelly was going to take over the back-up role from a guy who was paid 9mil. That is a fact, regardless of whether Kelly outplayed Hoyer. Kelly's lack of a shot last year was not talent or lack thereof or based on what the coaches saw. The above I mentioned is common sensible fact to what happened in Indy last year, especially considering Kelly wasn't afforded the opportunity to play in two final meaningless season games. Again, you either have a personal agenda against Kelly or you aren't stepping back and using a common sense big picture approach here.
  14. Seems like some fans and media alike believe trading Brissett to Patriots makes a lot of sense and maybe it will happen but highly doubt Gilmore will be involved ever.

    What I find absolutely hilarious about all of this is that fans like yourself have been jumping on the flavor of the offseason QB being discussed for a potential Colts selection, including Love. Amongst other things, Love appealed to so many based on his Mahomes comparisons of which you were intrigued by as well, but now that Love is a Packer and Eason is a Colt, it's okay if Eason doesn't have to be MaHomes-like. I don't care personally who you like as a QB, THIS THREAD was NOT a popularity contest, it was about a QB the Colts already have not being afforded a real opportunity to play against #1 talent and you along with many others are defending the pick of Eason, which has nothing to do with the original post. I realize that I AM the one who classified Eason that prompted your response and I take responsibility for that as I should not have allowed myself to veer off my own topic. In truth, I think Eason is a QB that is similar to Nate Sudfeld. If he turns out to be a superstud, I will admit I'm wrong, but that is not what this thread is about. It's trying to get people to see that Kelly has not gotten a fair shot and that we should not write him off until we see what he can do against higher talent competition.

    Speaking for myself, the one who started this all, and after seeing what others have stated on here in regards toward optimism in Kelly, I think it's pretty clear. We, meaning the ones who are optimistic about Kelly have not been screaming this guy is the next HOF QB. We are throwing out our support in just wanting to see him PLAY. Wanting our Colts to at least give him a shot to play with the above average talent on this team and against the higher talent in games so we can see if he has what it takes or not. It seems, a lot though, not all, who are posting against our desire for that to happen are mainly making fun or making arguments for arguments sake. I personally believe that if every Colts fan on here TRULY wants what is best for this team, where finding our QB of the future is concerned, then ALL Colts fans should want what we Kelly supporters want as well, to see if a guy who is currently a Colt and that has been a Colt can be our future at that position. We ALL already know what Rivers is. He is proven and he will start, however Rivers is not a FUTURE plan regardless of whether this team wins a SB or not while he is here. We all know what JB is and I think it is safe to say that we can agree JB is okay and a decent back-up but will not likely be a franchise type QB anywhere especially here and we know that because JB has had actually playing chances against higher level talent. Eason was just drafted, who knows if he will or will not get that opportunity to play against higher level talent, no one can say, however he should not be given that chance before the guy who already has been here just because he was drafted from a higher slot. Kelly IS here and has been here though and just like JB who has gotten his chance, deserves his as well and THAT and that alone is what this is all about. Nothing more or nothing less. It's not about whether some of us like Kelly and some do not for whatever those reasons may be, it's that ALL Colts fans should want to see if this guy can lead this team or has what it takes to be an elite/above average QB in this league and if he can't, then at least he was given a real shot and he faltered, and we move on. If he is given that chance and succeeds then we ALL put differences aside and move on with our QB together. There is no reason to not want to see that as what would it hurt? That's why I don't understand why many Colts fans are so quick to pass Kelly off or use speculation that Kelly has already had chances or use the fact that he hasn't played against higher talent as a means to an end on Kelly, when we already know why he has not been given that chance and it has nothing to do with his talent or potential. He has not played with the higher talent so far because of 2 main reasons. 1) Brissett given a FULL season to be the future. Call it seniority, call it based on how much the organization hyped this guy, call it a locker room likeability/locker room leader, call it what you will, but it was a decision made by the brass behind the scenes where barring a season ending injury Brissett was going to start an entire season without a controversy of being replaced regardless of performance. 2) Hoyers monetary contract. Say what you will, however there was no way Kelly was going to take over the back-up role from a guy who was paid 9mil. That is a fact, regardless of whether Kelly outplayed Hoyer. So all the chances in film study, off the field maturing, practices, and whatever was never going to give Kelly a real chance based on what I wrote above even though a lot on here has already said Kelly has had more chances than most. He has not in the reality of what the Colts situation was last season and it's time to stop making arguments for arguments sake and acknowledge the facts whether your a fan of Kelly or not. Peace

    For the record I said QBs with mobility in general, not any classification between highly or moderately mobile. Meaning the ability to either run for yards or move to escape pressure extend plays. All the teams I lumped together have QBs who can do that. Eason cannot. This isn't speculation its fact. It's why one of his biggest knocks is terrible under pressure, takes too many sacks as his awareness and moving in the pocket to extend plays is highly questionable to date or virtually non existent, hence why he is viewed as a statuesque QB mold. Kelly can move thus he is Mobile and was evident in extending plays during his college/preseason action. That was my point here. Our oline, though it might be able to truly give a guy like Eason time to throw from clean pockets, if it breaks down, Eason is not the guy to adjust to that in his current state of Quarterbacking at any level and if you believe that's going to be coached or dramatically change as he matures, you are wrong. If you dont mind that, fine, but the NFL landscape is going away from that type of QB when able to.

    Miami has Tua. He is mobile. Maybe not this year but they drafted a mobile QB. Chargers I was Tyrod, forgot about Herbert, even so mobile QBs fully or somewhat way over league average

    Ok tell that to the Packers, Chiefs, Ravens, Bengals, Seahawks, Niners, Dolphins, Giants, Bills, Jets, Browns, Cowboys, Titans, Jags, Bears, Chargers, Texans, Cardinals, Rams, Eagles, broncos. Only raiders, Colts, Pat's, Bucs, saints, panthers, skins, vikings, falcons, steelers and lions currently do not have mobile QBs

    He made plays when plays broke down you said. That's not the type of offense you are looking for you said. You do realize that type of offense is 45-50% at minimum Patrick MaHomes or Aaron Rodgers to name a couple. Im NOT comparing Kelly to them so don't get it twisted, however being able to make those plays when the offense breakdown is exactly what makes the two I mentioned Great!! And that is exactly what most NFL teams are looking for. You realize that right?

    I'm not ripping Eason, it's a fact. Look around the NFL landscape, with exceptions like Brady, Rivers, Ben, etc.. who are all older QBs and will be moving out soon, the NFL as a whole are shifting to QBs that are entirely mobile or at least can extend plays or make plays with mobility. That's not ripping, that's fact. Statuesque QBs like Manning are yesterday's news, yet the Colts draft one.

    All that's fine and what im about to say is not meant to defame any of what you said but if anybody thinks Eason is the future here they are bonkers. The days of a statue QB, big arm or not, in the nfl are over. This league is geared and trending more towards mobility, make plays when things break down and this guy Eason isn't that. He is Nate Sudfeld and Nate Sudfeld is not a franchise QB

    @stitches in response to part stating Reich wanted to win games and he left JB in as best chance to win. You cant be serious? If you honestly think that you have lost all credibility with me entirely. They left JB in for the entire season as the reason I gave being so no one could cause them of not giving him the real shot full season especially after they hyped him for 2 years and anybody who has any ounce of common sense knows this. Its why they keep propping this guy up even after signing Rivers and drafting Eason. For some reason they know this guy is fragile, or don't want a player revolt because of his lockeroom presence, or like him in general or whatever but it clearly isn't about him being a good QB now and most certainly was not about winning games then. The rest is what it is, but do I think getting a fair shot means only practice and film room, absolutely not. Playing experience is the number one equalizer. Without REAL game time experience you wont know and Kelly shouldve been able to play last couple games when the season was meaningless. Games are different then practice and film study. Not discounting those 2, but playing time trumps all
