  1. Again you have a QB that didnt play in the preseason and was barely even in camp. It takes time to start to gel. They are pretty much in there preseason stage right now. You will know by mid point what this team really is. Too early to see what it is right now.
  2. You would be wasting the 1st overall pick since all the QBs coming out this year are trash. Colts would be better off trading out of that pick to gain more picks
  3. Only problem with that is the div is still wide open and Colts are going into the soft part of the sch in this season where if they want the playoffs they need to win these games.
  4. If Wentz is healthy and can play the last thing you want is to bench him. If you do that you might as well cut him in the off season. Which means you gave up a 2nd round pick for nothing. Wentz will lose all confidence in the coaching staff and this team if hes benched to save a draft pick. Yes im a Eagles fan but Im a Wentz and Frank supporter and want them the Colts to have success. Being a former player myself, it will result in nothing but disaster if he is benched while healthy, esp when its a team effort crap season.
  5. It's week 3, Colts lost to 3 very good teams, all playoff teams last year. Not to forget there is a new QB who is not 100% healthy and ran maybe 1 week of practice during the off season. There i going to be growing pains. Maybe come back to this around mid season.
  6. Problem is Carson will push to come back quick, and possibly too early. Happened in 2018. His injury was min a year and a half recovery process and he was pushing and came back in 8 months. This is one reason he keeps getting injuried. Hes coming back too early. As a Eagles fan, yes I want him to come back quick. As a Carson fan, I want him to get as much rest as he can to make sure he doesnt come back too early and results in an ending season injury.
  7. Im a Carson guy, but did find this a little funny.
  8. Losing Gannon is going to make a difference in the secondary. He was one of the top DB coaches in the league and knew how to put players in the best situations to have success or at least not hurt the team. He made Rock look like a serviceable DB last year. he did it with many unknown DBs honestly. It will be interesting to see how the secondary looks this year in Indy.
  9. Foles never ran the Frank system/playbook well. The Eagles had to change the scheme/system to the read option(Chip Kelly) system when Wentz went down and Foles came in. This was the case for both 2017 and 2018 When the Eagles ran the base system with Foles, he played horrible. It wasnt until Frank had the idea of going back to the film room to see what success Foles had under Kelly which lead to a SB in Philly. brilliant move to be honest. So only way that works is if the Colts have the system team to run that read option offense and Wentz doesnt come back or your changing schemes mid season again.
  10. The problem with drafting a QB in round 1 is you just wasted a 2nd and 3rd on Wentz then. Wentz just went through multiple years of Foles playing over him due to injury then again in 2018 to start the season. Then Eagles drafted Hurts in the 2nd round in 2021 and screwed up Wentz mentally. Most of the fans gave up on him and it took a toll on him. This situation is even worse then 2021 with Hurts and would end Wentz career in Indy. The Colts, esp Frank did not pay that price to give up on him after one season of an injury which if you draft a top 5 QB you are throwing in the towel. "If the Colts had a top 5 pick your best situation is to trade back, build that team around Wentz. We have already seen you can get kings ransom for that pick, Realisticly though Colts wont have a top 3 pick so wont be in a area of drafting one of the top QBs coming out. They would have to pay the hefty price to move up which is even more capital spent on QB. Colts would get nothing for Wentz if they did that as well. It would be a cut/release situation the following year.
  11. Not a very good theory. Yes Colts get a first rounder back but will lose yet another year of a possible SB chance and another year wasting Wentz, the current coaching staff and players. Me personally Id rather be a top team in the NFL with a chance at a SB and lose a late 1st rounder then waste another year and gain my first back but still lose a early 2nd rounder. The windows are way to short in the NFL. Players and Coaches leave to quick now. Colts have a great chance right now. This option is just wasting that time. Also lets be real. When QBs or any player comes back from surgery they dont' "Ball Out" Esp a player/QB in year one with his new team, new coaching staff, new scheme, etc. Wentz would be missing the rest of the offseason and key beginning of the season to gel with his oline, recs etc. This is huge with any QB. Have to honest and hope the best situation here is Wentz only misses the preseason only. Me as a Eagles fan Im rooting for Wentz and not for a pick. Makes not difference to me if its a late first or a early 2nd which is what it would be. Im a Wentz and Frank supporter and the only good situation for this team is the statement above. Anything else for this team is just flat out a bad situation. Trying to make any other sense out of this situation is just unrealistic.
  12. Being an Eagles fan/ Season ticket holder I dont see Howie Roseman cutting Ertz. Hes just that bull headed of a guy. Ertz will be part of this team to show his skills this season. Its in the best interest for Ertz to play since he will lose a lot of money if he holds out. He also will be a year older with question marks all over him if he does not go out and prove that last year was a fluke season. If not that effects his contract and team interest next year. So my take is the Eagles will keep him and his name will still be out there to teams by the trade deadline or end of preseason to a team thinks he can be that final piece. If not the Eagles keep him and land a comp pick next year when he signs his new contract with team of choice. More then likely a 5th rounder via trade or comp pick will be the outcome. Howie is just known for being a guy who does not give in and sticks to his guns for better or worse.
  13. 2.75 He has been in the league now 5 or 6 years and only 2 has he had success. Now the position change is a big factor here and the system he in is with Carr. I think he can keep this success going with his abilities. he does get a slip from me since he really can;t block at all. To me in today's game there is no specific rec position. All recs play the slot, play the outside, have situational positions etc. This goes for TE as well. They are mainly recs now. To me a TE has the blocking factor in his game. Waller is just a big rec playing in a position on the field to create a mismatch. Well planned by the coaching staff in LV to get the most out of him. Being an Eagles fan and keeping the TE position going........ Dallas Goedert
  14. Wentz to me is all about scheme. Doug Pederson was not a good game planner, play caller and never put the strengths of his players into account. In 2017 after the week 2 loss to KC, Doug was forced by the FO to give up game planning and scripting to Frank. As many saw, this was a world of difference to this team resulting in a SB win. In the 4 years Doug was running the offense fully, the Eagles were in the bottom of the league in first half points, points, injuries etc. The one year Frank took over those two key areas of the offense the Eagles were number 1 in the league in in most metrics on offense including the number 1 offense in the league. If Wentz was not hurt against the Rams, it was pretty certain he was going to be the league MVP. Going back to Frank is the best thing that ever happened to Carson. I for one never wanted Carson gone, I would have loved to see him at least 1 more year to see what he could do under Nick and the Colts style offense mind. But at this point it was a bad environment for Carson and moving into a style that fits his strengths is just going to prove how good of a player he is.
  15. I think something these reporters and experts keep forgetting is that Watson has a no trade clause in his contract. He has to approve any team the Texans try to trade him to. Patriots were not on that list. Im sure there is some play in his list if he wants to get out, but it speaks loudly that Matt Stafford said he would take any team but the Patriots to be traded to. Many of these reporters said Watson to the Eagles. I find that hard to believe cause its just as bad a situation as the Texans. Watson has all the leverage on this situation. He has the Texans by the nuggets. This is a lesson learned to all teams to not put in a no trade clause in the deal.
  16. Those sites are always incorrect. Howie Roseman was on sports radio a few hours ago after the Brandon Graham restructure and said they are now under the cap with the final deals done today. Now it puts them in horrible shape in the next 2-3 years with all the "ghost" years added to these contracts. But he said it again on WIP they had no plans on cutting Ertz. Hes bull headed and will cut others just to not cut him, lol. You want to make a trade for GMs?
  17. Eagles are already under the salary cap. They were only around 12 mill over yesterday and just worked a few more contracts to get under this afternoon. They had to restructure half the teams contracts just to do it, lol. Eagles will get a trade or keep him. It has to be a post June trade or cut anyways to save the 8 mill and get most to carry over to 2022, otherwise they make their cap worst by moving him pre june. If they keep him, next year they will get a 3rd or 4th round comp pick when he signs with a new team. They wont let that pick go so they will just use him this year to up his value for FA next year or make a trade deadline deal.
  18. Eagles are claiming they will not release Ertz. They will trade him but if no trade, they are claiming they will keep him till his contract runs out next year. More then likely they are looking to get a comp pick next year if not traded.
  19. If Ertz gets released, his preference will be the highest bidder. He already has a SB ring so he wont be as motivated based solely on that. At age 31, this could and more then likely be his last big pay day. So in the end, he will take the money from who ever will write the biggest check
  20. Pretty much this. If Wentz plays well then the first round pick was a steal. Not to mention do you want a repeat of what happened in Philly? Wentz was very upset by his benching in Philly. Even by sitting him down and telling him the situation does anyone think he will not get upset being benched to save 1 round of a pick? Thats playing with fire right there. Don;t mess with a QBs head.
  21. This will be the weirdest FA the NFL has seen in a long time. You will see most players take a 1 year deal so they can cash out more in 2022 when/if the cap situation goes back to normal and most teams will have more money to spend. This is the year you want to be a team in the hunt for a SB cause these players will want to play for a winner for that one year.
  22. All mocks are questionable. That is what they are there for. To make people think, get upset or in another sense.........read it. That is what these writers get paid for, to make people read their article. Who wants to read an article that has no flare? No surprise? No argument? Now, way I see it is you never draft by position of need. This in most cases results in reaching. If Im the Colts Im going the BPA. With the amount of Oline and WRs it is a very possible chance it could be one of them positions.
  23. Where is the "Other" option? I vote my boy Wentz
