  1. Eason could very well have a productive career similar but probably not at the level of Beth Rothlesburger. Big Ben had some sneaky running ability. He took a pounding over the years. Eason unfortunately is going to have to use his legs in the NFL there's no two ways about it. Winning plays is all that really matters in Not For Long league. That said, I could possibly see him being the full time starter in 2-3 years. I believe Reich keeps Kelly because he may envision utilizing him in a wildcat/option situation. Those two could not be more different and for some reason I feel there is a reason polar opposite style QB's are still on the same team. If they end up cutting Kelly, they pretty much have to keep JB for some semblance of footwork and running ability. Rivers isnt going to risk anything at this point in his career.
  2. Im not a fanboy but imo CK is the QB3 maybe QB2 for this team. JB was given the full year to create trade value this year and to possibly meet contractual incentives. I think as Colts fans we know a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to Elite QB's. We are very critical of our QB's as they must meet a standard as must haves. Must haves include winning plays. Its nice that JB was able to play football for a full year for the colts but I can count on one hand the number of winning plays he made. As we watch our QB's at practice which I have and in the preseason you look for several things. Ice in the veins, Heart of a winner, ability to put our self out there to make that first down. Luck was a beast in those categories. I am not even sure PM checked all those boxes. What you have in CK is someone who has no fear. Why? because he has nothing to lose. Give me someone who has no fear willing to do whatever it takes to get a first down. Sure his career might be over in flash but winning plays keep you on football teams and that is why he is still with the Colts. If Eason, shows that same ability, then he probably leap frogs CK on the depth chart. but imo CK has a place on this team.
  3. This is repeated over and over and while it might be true, I believe a decision was made by the coach and GM before the season started to allow JB play the full season regardless of performance to try an earn full starters money and his next contract. The players were also behind this Im sure which made the decision easier to give JB the entire season. I am also willing to bet that Irsay/Ballard had personal goals that JB had to meet to get that contract thus allowing JB to play all the way to the end to meet those goals makes sense. Personally I dont think he met those goals. JB needed to show improvement from 2017 and I didnt see it. He purposely inflated his TD/Int ratio early in the season by throwing 1 yard TD passes that could have easily been run in. Once teams had tape on him, he regressed all the way back to 2017.
