RGIII will have another shot to start in the league. There are several teams looking for a spark at QB, and he does have the talent.

 

Now as far as backup for the Colts I could see a Drew Stanton reunion for a quality veteran backup behind Luck. I also think we should keep Freeman as well.

Some team is going to overpay to get him and it's not going to be the Colts.

 

 

I'm thinking he has to sign a pretty modest contract. I don't think teams will be standing in line to over pay RG3.

No. Just no.

 

Josh Freeman please.

 

This. Josh Freeman could be one of the best backups in the league, if not the best, if he's back to near the top of his game. I think his fall from grace has really helped him grow up and despite being around for what seems like forever he's only 28 (January birthday).

RG3 will get signed by a desperate team that needs a QB, and he'll be the starter....For a while anyways. Who knows maybe he goes somewhere and plays well. Or he goes to Dallas to be the backup, and eventual starter after Romo's inevitable injury. But all of the following teams will most likely look into him to be their starter.....Houston, Cleveland, San Francisco, LA Rams, and Philadelphia. Then teams like Buffalo may look into signing him to come in and compete for the Job. My guess is he goes to one of Houston, Cleveland, or the LA Rams and starts the season as their starting QB. I think Cleveland drafts Wentz so probably Houston or LA. Philly will re-acquire Foles IMO.

Agree 100%. Plus we wont have a 3-4 million dollar cap hit for our backup QB like with Hasselbeck. Freeman looked good at the end of the season. I think he's still under contract too.

Buffalo does not need to have a competition for the starting QB position. EJ Manual is the starter and will stay the starter.

tyrod taylor is the starter until proven otherwise 

You are correct. I wasn't thinking I guess.

    • Reports state Ballard never changed his offer.
    • The Championship teams have to be rated higher than the other teams, so it would probably go: 1. 2006 Colts - won SB, 10-0 at home overall beat Brady and BB in the AFC Title Game, beat the Bears in the SB.   2. 1958 Colts - won Championship   3. 1959 Colts - won Championship   4. 1970 Colts - won SB, beat Dallas   5. 1968 Colts - lost SB, best Colts team ever that didn't win it all.   6. 2005 Colts - lost divisional round to eventual SB Champ - Pitt. I put them here because on paper this team was loaded and still had Edge James.   7. 2009 Colts - lost SB, oh what could've been??   8. 2003 - lost in AFC Title Game to a very strong/great Pats team in New England.   9. 1995 Colts - 1 play away from winning the AFC Title Game, making the SB. Harbaugh was magical and our defense was very good and fundamentally sound.   10. 2014 Colts - Luck's best year ever, 40 TD's, 4700 yards, and we made the AFC Title Game but the Pats man handled us.    
    • Why do you think he “gave in”??    There are zero reports anywhere that we changed our offer.   I think this was our offer from the start.   The Eagles wanted it sweetened, and by all accounts, we refused.   I think Ballard is very comfortable with his offer and how it all worked out.    Just my two cents....
