Some were acting like he should maybe play ahead of Tolzien...all I was implying was that would be a disaster.

Honestly, if he gets more reps in practice and plays pre-season with the 1's I think he has a chance to settle down.  I think I'm done with ST if he doesn't do better in the 2nd pre-season game.  Go with the kids.

Scott Tolzien sounds like Sam Bradford for us. But Vikes fans seem to like him a lot.

 

When you have a killer D, you need a good QB that minimizes turnovers (even at the expense of less exciting huge plays).  Colts D isn't there, yet.

 

BTW, as much as I predicted Sam would be good for Vikes in short notice last year, the whole setup this year means I expect major improvement in Bradford's game this year... IF... Vikes O line does their job.  You'll see... :-)

Sam Bradford is like 10 times the qb and playmaker of Tolzien.

I know, I know...but he is so gun shy. He does not want to throw the ball deep. What good is he if he won't take chances. At least take some chances in preseason when the result does not count.

 

Also, he is not a "playmaker"

I don't recall playing the Browns last year

Browns, Jags... Does it matter?  

 

Okay, so we needed a huge comeback against one of the worst teams in the league in game 16 just to hit .500.

Tolzien will keep you in the game and keep it close enough to have a shot to win....Walker would make a few splash plays...but would have you down 21-24 to nothing before you blinked. He isn't disciplined enough to just take what the defense gives you. Maybe in a couple years he can grow into that backup role.

I respect your knowledge, DG, but you can see that from 15 snaps into his career??  Wow.  You're good!!!

First. 

 

Starting Walker isn't a real option. Second Tolzien cannot keep a game close. Just stop. He has shown nothing in his play that suggests it either. He is a bad player.

Bradford is too conservative. I think he makes the OL look worse than what it is. Last year, he was only the 11th most pressured QB (Luck was 28th or so); yet, you would swear he was the most pressured.  

 

Watch the game next Friday on NFL Network. We play Seattle.

Because he had no line to protect him long enough...He came in late and was told to give his defense a chance to put them in a position to win. He can be a playmaker by getting the ball to the right guy at the right time...He has a good arm...much better than Tolzien.

    • So if I have this straight….   Apparently, Kafka, the Giants OC, and a favorite of some here, did not make the second round of interviews.     The Colts are down to 7 candidates and he’s not one of them. 
    • Depending what they do with Ryan, Foles, MAC, Kelly, and Moore the Colts could free up to $40 million in cap space. Plus, only 51 players count against the cap so they are counting players against the cap that will fall off. 
    • First of all I just have to say I have a strong distaste for Tom Brady but I’d sign him in a heartbeat under a year contract and then draft CJ Stroud or Levis whoever falls to us at number 4. Have them sit behind Brady and truly learn how to be a QB in the NFL. With the remaining picks provide him with some weapons and protection and bolster the defensive side of the ball. 
    • Agreed, but how much of "a better player or two MORE" does a team need at the end of every season?    That's why the teams strive to find the prototypical or modern era franchise QB, so that the QB can make that game winning drive in last minute or a couple of comeback game changing drives needed in playoffs against strong contenders, in addition to strong and consistent QB play throughout regular season. Such QBs deserve to get paid, and Bengals have found that franchise QB in Burrow who has proven so much BEFORE getting paid a lot.    Problem with the QB market is not that the likes of Rodgers, Burrow, Mahomes get paid... The problem is that barely above average QBs such as the likes of Cousins, Goff, Wentz, Jones, Carr, Watson (personal and legal problems), and few others continue to demand elite QB money and drive up the QB market when they don't deserve that kind of contract, while neither proving BEFORE OR AFTER getting that money.    If I'd wanna complain about QBs getting paid huge money that makes the team worse, I'd complain about those Pretenders who would get paid abhorrent, unproven and undeserved pay while these QBs make their team worse by BOTH blocking large part of the cap space and NOT playing to the highest level of QB play their contracts would suggest.    Back to your point, yes, Bengals would lose a key player or more both in offense and defense when Burrow's contract peaks in salary cap space... But he's proven he can compensate that loss, which is not even close to the situation of not even having found our franchise QB yet, and still a better problem than having a QB who pretends to be a franchise QB not being able to win multiple playoff games.
