It's possible the Colts could lose Stanton to.....


Recommended Posts

Stanton is a lifetime, NFL backup. While i agree that he's better than corn-on-the-kolb, he doesn't have any NFL film or highlights showcasing his potential to be a starter in this league. Watch what happens with Chandler Harnish. I like this guys skill set, and i think he's gonna end up in a situation similiar to Matt Flynn, except he's actually gonna start for some team.

I agree, I'm not saying he's the next Tom Brady (sorry to reference that name in this forum) but I think if a team ever gives him a chance to play he could definitely be a starter somewhere. I'm glad we have him as our back up just in case, but I do feel kind of bad for him as well.

..... Arizona.     A story on NFL.com saying Stanton might have a better shot at more playing time in Arizona than Indianapolis.

Colts trade Stanton and 1st round pick for Arizona's 2nd, 3rd, 4th... Arizona would then have 2 1st rounders + Stanton not a bad trade...

Except that we can't trade Stanton.    He had a 1-year deal with the Colts.   He's now a FA.

 

Otherwise,  that's an interesting deal,  though I doubt Arizona would give up that much....  

 

If only we could......

There's a reason why Bleacher Report has the well earned reputation that it has (awful!!)...  and it's projections like that.

 

The only way Jarvis falls to 24 is if the medical reports from the combine scare the Hell out of the rest of the NFL, but somehow the Colts doctors say....  "sure!"...    and Woods falling to the bottom of the 3rd round is a pipe dream as well. 

 

Kruger is Paul Kruger's kid brother?   Big DL at Utah?    I'd be OK if we can snatch him up.

 

But the 1st/3rd picks for the Colts are crazy bad (in an unrealistic way, though they are great players...)

 

Thanks for posting it False Start...   I needed the good laugh.      :thmup:

 

p.s. -- please don't take my post as a shot to you.   It's not.   I'm just not a fan of BR, and that's why I thought you were sharing it, to get the laugh....

I dont think that Coach Bruce is going to begin his head coaching career with a backup QB, do you?

 

There aren't a whole lot of great options out there for him to choose from. If I were him, I'd be staying with Kolb, and that's not a very encouraging prospect.
