Are we, as Colts fans, overvaluing or undervaluing Jacoby Brissett?
It probably depends on how you look at our backup QB. If you are looking at him compared to other backup QBs around the league, you are probably undervaluing him. I could make the argument that he is the most valuable backup in the NFL. And I think Ballard agrees.
However, if you're looking at Jacoby as trade-bait, you might be overvaluing him. A team trading for Jacoby would want him to be their starter. Granted, this article is written by David Carr for NFL.com, so take it with a grain of salt, but he has at least 10 other QBs ranked ahead of Brissett for other teams to consider drafting, signing as a FA, or trading for.
I expected to see Brissett on that list. When I didn't, I wondered if I'm overvaluing our backup with blue-colored glasses...
And I think the draft-stock of the QB prospects will only increase leading up to the draft. I just don't see a team offering Ballard enough to part ways with Jacoby at this point.
I'd like to see more games for a bigger sample data. Richardson's expertise is brute raw strength, which is also why he did so well in college -- his opposition was undersized. Now we're placing Trent in a development league and suddenly we're surprised he's doing well? I'm not biting yet. You put me into a game with a bunch of old ladies and I can make myself look strong, too.
Flowers as well as Dante Fowler Jr. should also be available. I would be happy will Flowers and Robert Quinn when he is released. Those two would be great additions. I can see Quinn getting double digit sacks again moving back to DE.
