  1. What would everyone's thoughts be if we converted J. Taylor to wide receiver. There's things to consider, current vision problem which maybe will be corrected with more playing time or not. I mean i hope it improves but there's no way of really knowing. It could possibly be a godsend to the Colts if it worked out. The man is big, tough, plays with a mean streak and is fast. He also can catch the ball. Can he hold onto it is the question. I think he has the intelligence to learn the wide position but don't know if he has the will to. There in lies the problem. Of course, if this worked out it w
  2. I would like to thank this poster for his well thought out posts in this forum. It's like a breathe of fresh air. I know this is probably not the place to do this but i felt compelled to do so. For you sir ... SALUTE!!!!
  3. LOL ..... You need to stop taking what other people say so personal.
  4. Food for thought ... Let's say your statement above is correct and probably is the issue. So, let's look at what we have. Rivers ... If he can still throw the long ball consistently or not or is Reich holding him back. Assuming Reich is holding him back then that's your answer. However, if Rivers can't throw long consistently and other teams know this or is daring you to throw long then that is your problem or answer. Brissett ... Well, unless he has learned how to be more aggressive and stop playing QB like a sissy then maybe he is a solution. Maybe but i highly doubt it. So that leaves Eason
  5. What brain are you referring too. The one above or the one below!
  6. IMO, the reason know other teams come calling. He's not a good QB! Look, ever since JB was traded to the Colts, its been a debacle. I know he was put in a difficult situation but he has not progressed and he's had the chance to do so. I believe JB should of never been a Colt. Ballard had his reasons and i believe he thought for those reasons things would work out but they did not! JB apparently is a leader. At least, that's the narrative, but he's not led successfully! Being a nice guy and everyone's love for you does not make a good QB. Hey, at least Ballard brought back team unity after the
  7. So, you base this on what? Last year? There is an precedent set already!
  8. It's because of Ballard's man crush and maybe Reich's as well. Also, they don't want to hurt his feelings. Sorry, JB shouldn't be on this team let alone the back up QB. In JB's case, management has made their decisions with their heart instead of their head. I know the daily regulars, on this forum, will tell me how wrong i am but so be it. This is how i feel and have felt since last year.
  9. There's some serious issues going on here! WOW!
  10. This is still just coach speak! All of what they say is coach speak! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out!
  11. Again, you fail to see the forest for the trees! It's not the amount of yards a QB throws per game. It's when more passing yards is needed then the QB can make the throws that is necessary to win the game on a consistent basis. IMO, the Colts do not yet have that element. None of the backups have proven they can be backups on a consistent basis.
  12. Why does Kelley/Eason have to battle for a position while JB is gifted one. No questions asked and no performance qualifiers have to be obtained. Why is JB entitled automatically? He hasn't shown anything as a good QB since he's been in the league. Alot of people are saying he's a good backup QB. I don't see it. What he is IMO is someone who gives you no chance. Sorry, i know this is not popular but it's how i see it.
  13. Wow! The hatred for Kelley on this forum is really over the top! Do you JB guys agree with this or maybe you can't see it?
  14. I was born in 1953. Remember being at my uncle's house for dinner while the greastest game ever played was airing on t.v.. Of course, the picture was so snowy you couldn't hardly see it and i really didn't understand what was going on. I was raised in lower Delaware close to the Mason Dixon line, so therefore as i was growing up the local t.v. would show most of the games. As i got older i was able to go see them live at memorial stadium a few times. Oh how i loved going and watching the game and all the excitement. A lot of good memories. When the Mayflower trucks came to Baltim
  15. Look dude, if you think i'm hating then you have no idea what hate means! Why don't you take your autocratic thinking to a 3rd world country. Sounds like you would fit in there! I'm not hating, i'm not 10 years old and i'm not a clown. In fact, i've probably been a Colts fan longer then you have lived on this earth! I bash JB (not as a person) but as a Colts QB. Look, i don't agree with you in regards to JB. Personally, i feel he is not a good QB, even as a backup! Now, lets get to you telling me what i should say and do! If you don't like what i'm saying than fine. Read it and move on for cry
  16. Listening to you and a few others, Brissett must walk on water! Keep using the injury as an excuse though if it helps your point of view or lack of it. I think he lost his confidence. Teams started taking away what he does well and either he couldn't or wouldn't throw the ball down field on a consistent basis. Therefore, he sucks as a QB in the NFL. Leadership takes you so far if you can't back it up. If the Colts keep him as back up and he (heaven forbid!) has to go in the game, i think we are in trouble! It will not be good. In fact, i just might throw up!!!!!!!!!!
  17. Not go in and win! Really!!!!!!!!! Knows the system ... He should but he doesn't play like it. Is a leader / loved by team and coaches ... Well i read this an upteen time ... To be a QB in this league takes more. Can win a game if called on ... You yourself just wrote he is not expected to win a game. I have no confidence of him winning us a game if called on. Can keep a lead in the 4th quarter ... Maybe he could. He is quite conservative. For sure, he won't win coming from behind. He actually gets worse the more he plays! Saints
  18. No way EastStreet .... He was injured remember and in fact for the remainder of the year. This is what some on here want us to believe. Therefore. it couldn't of been JB. Let's see ... who on the Colts looks like JB and played the second half of the year? I mean it couldn't have been JB! He was injured and won 7 games!
  19. But ..... He's a leader and he..... doesn't throw interceptions!!! Therefore, that automatically qualities him as a great backup QB NOT!!!! Good post.
  20. Curious, whom might that be! Um, won 7 games last year. NOT! Maybe 2. The rest were won by the offensive line and the running game. His stats were not good in those 7 games. Let me ask you a question, did you watch the Saints game last year? How can you say he is a good backup! How can you even say he's a good QB! I had my doubts before but after the Saints game i was done with Mr. Brissett! So, go ahead and tell me how it was someone else's fault and he was injured! LOL!!!!!!!!! Some how JB gets excused for poor QBing but other players get crucified on here. Amazing!!!!!!!!
  21. So leadership is the only quality needed to be a capable QB in this league? Reading your post, it must be because that's all JB has going for him. You use alot of (ifs) in your post. Using injury as an excuse is (nonsense), using receivers as an excuse is (nonsense) and using your excuses for reasons JB is so good is (nonsense). My opinions differs from yours and most posters on this forum because i don't see JB as a capable QB. In fact, i don't see JB as a decent back up QB. He has nothing in ability to give me confidence he can come in and win games nor bring us back from a defeat. Sorry, th
