Yup Jaylon Smith would definitely do our D some good right about now

I want to see him in a Colts uniform so bad. But we could lose out and still not be picking high enough to get him unless we trade up. Unless he bombs at the combine, which is unlikely since he's a freakish athlete.

For everyone criticizing our play and bashing our play did anyone feel like we were going to win anyway. I mean we are playing with our backup QB who has been Good but he isn't Andrew. We haven't lost in a month and still are in 1st place in the Sou

    • Today I am going to spend some time listening to some SF podcasts. It’s always fun to see what the enemy is thinking of the colts. I am following a really good one on Twitter too. He always has common sense takes about his team.
    • It's interesting how bent out of shape some people get about us not having a top notch back-up QB, when most teams don't. Most teams have guys that have been around the league for a long time, but were never able to do anything of note (whether as a starter or not). You have guys like Chad Henne, Colt McCoy, Mike Glennon, and AJ McCarron. If any of them have to come in and play meaningful snaps, they're not putting the team on their back and winning the game for you. They may be able to play the role of game manager and not mess up too bad, but that's the general reality of back-up QB's. Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the exception, not the expectation.
    • He was already called up twice. So he can’t be elevated unless signed to the 53 man roster.
    • Not that you expect much down to earth thinking on the radio, particularly from Mike Wells, but he was co-hosting with Bowen this morning and he was talking about how much Ballard botched the backup QB position because of his movement up and down the depth chart.  Not to mention that Ballard said "Look, he's a 4th round pick, he's going to have to earn it" when asked after he was drafted and hasn't had a great thing to say about him since.     To me, when it mattered, we had a serviceable backup when we needed it - Jacoby - and he did well when he was forced to start an entire season after Luck retired.  After signing Rivers, we all knew we couldn't keep Jacoby at $20m as a backup and couldn't really resign him for what he wanted after the 2020 season so we drafted Eason.  Had the talent, but needed to be coached up - what do you expect from a 4th rounder? ya know?  and then we drafted Ehlinger in 2021 and signed Hundley and put him on the practice squad.  Ehlinger goes on IR and once we get to see Eason, activate Hundley to the active roster because we've seen enough of Eason.  Ballard will put him back on the PS if he clears waivers or maybe we don't.    But these guys act like we're 2-4 because we cut Eason and Ballard has just completely mishandled the backup situation.  Like, we're talking about a backup QB.  Any team that has to put in their backup for considerable time is in a bad place.  Let's not act like even serviceable backups like Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the norm when we draft 4th round and later QBs.  Let's get a little bit of a grip on reality...
    • We have no FS on our Squad Right now. I think Ccachere or Tell had potential to be that... If Blackmon was a beer he'd be called Willis Light lol...
