    • I just like bringing up stuff when I am wrong because I think it is funny looking back on things + I know I am not right all the time. I said we would be good and make the playoffs with Rivers before 2020. I also hated the Wentz trade. I nailed those.   Regarding QB's today, I look at teams needing really a top 8 QB in the league to win it all. It is just a QB's league. My rankings would be if healthy entering 2023 are: 1. Mahomes 2. Burrow 3. Hurts 4. Allen 5. Rodgers - older but I am just going by 2023 6. I have Jackson here - he will be 100%. 7. Lawrence 8. Herbert   -Dak has an argument for top 8. Cousins/Carr?? Russell Wilson looked real bad last year so who knows about him. Watson is also a mystery. A team like SF is loaded but their downfall will be QB play when they get deep in the playoffs. It has been proven many times now. If SF had a top 8 QB, they would probably win the SB. They usually go to the Championship Game or SB but lose. It will be interesting to see how good Purdy or Lance will be in 2023? Jimmy always took them far but lost. I think a QB like Matt Stafford is washed like Matt Ryan but he got his SB win.   Technically IMO we would have the best QB in the AFC South if we got Lamar but barely because Lawrence is coming and had a good year last year. We also have arguably the best RB in the division when healthy in Taylor, I think Henry will make the Hall of Fame one day but he has been used a lot.
    • Doesn’t like it doesn’t really say anything definitive.   Did he say how many pick’s would be too much.  One, two, three, four, five?  And what round and what year?  What cost is too much?  We have no idea do we.  Doesn’t like doesn’t me he won’t do anything.  
    • Don’t take thinking it won’t happen to mean someone wouldn’t want Lamar.  I’ve gone on the record as saying he’s a special player who will be successful anywhere.  I just don’t think the stars are aligning for him to end up in Indy.  
    • Do you really think the Colts haven’t had those conversations?  Honestly, while I am sure they have one they like more than the others I think they feel they can be successful with most of these four.  If there was just one they had to have they would have done more to explore trading up.
    • How much does age matter.  And this isn't a question about Bennett, it also applies to Hooker and maybe Levis.   I don't understand the idea that a 22 year old guy should be drafted higher...by much.  The rookie contract lasts 5 years, and that's about what to expect his longevity with the team is.  Approaching that point there is a possibility of negotiating a new contract or using the franchise tag (which means that QB is going to have to be really elite QB).  The contract is going to reflect his value at the time,,,that, and if you still want him at all has nothing to do with where he was drafted.   IMO, you draft the QB that has the most talent given where you need to draft him.  Worrying about if he's going to be your QB 8 years from now after going through a series of seasons and business negotiations seems way down the list of factors to consider when drafting a player.
