Jared "J.Load" Lorenzen.

LOL.  I kinda feel bad for the guy, but then I really don't.  Not being able to keep a steady diet cost him his wife and at least several hundreds of thousands of dollars, amongst other things.  It's not quite as bad as getting cut for getting arrested, but it's about as close as you can get.

Pedantically... the actual question to the question of who IS the best Colts QB not named Unitas/Manning/Luck is Matt Hasselbeck as he's the only Colts QB not named as per the previous.:P

 

Now who WAS the best Colts QB I'd have to say Bert Jones going from folklore.

In my mind, Jones was the first real "gunslinger."  He had the arm and the attitude to match.  His confidence (opponents would say arrogance) literally carried the team at times and gave them confidence in themselves.  Carr, Mitchell, Mackey, Lee, Chester, Doughty, the Sack Pack...that was a fun team to watch.

    • Regardless of the move up if you are drafting a QB in the top 10 and he is a bust you should lose your job because that’s a huge setback for a team. Not just the 49ers but any team that takes a QB. Shanahan likes to run the West Coast offense and with that having a mobile QB helps so Fields makes more sense to me. But if he wants a pure pocket passer Jones fits the bill. 
    • This is an important one for me that says otherwise. Playing with first round WRs hasn't tested Jones with tight windows as much, IMO.       
    • Yep. And many of them also think that teams are going to give Ballard some ridiculous haul of draft picks.   Most of this is due to 2018 trade from #3 to #6...where the NYJ did give Ballard a sweetheart trade. But that wasn't some indication of draft approach...it was just good, sound decision-making. And it was a trade that nearly all GMs would make if they could get it (assuming they too didn't need a QB). And it happened well before the draft, which is much different than a draft day trade back.    So he's only really ever done a big draft day trade back once...in 2019. And not to rehash this...but it's looking like it was not the correct path...so I am not sure why fans are so gung-ho about doing it every year.   But overall, he's probably traded up on draft day as much as he has traded down.    I think if trades back this year, it's going to be small trade backs that land late round picks (like moving back in the 3rd and 4th rounds)...or one singluar trade back that lands Day 2 draft capital next year to help offset the Wentz trade.    And then after this trade, the prevailing narrative will be that it doesn't matter what Wentz does...because he was basically free.
    • Based on stats Mac Jones is above all. Career stats I’ll give Fields the nod. Lance has a potential high ceiling but eye test and stats he isn’t above either IMO. Not currently. 
    • I think Kyle Shanahan is a good enough play caller that will make both Jones and Fields work for him just as he would with Lance. Ultimately, their decision becomes a make or break because of the draft capital they have given up to go get one that they think will make a difference and not have been available at No.12.   No matter who goes to SF will have a good record, the question will be if they can put them over the hump come playoff time. I don't think Jimmy G can.
