Pagano didn't stop Ballard from bringing in a better backup QB. Even if he endorsed Tolzien, Ballard could have brought in some legitimate competition for him. He brought in Phillip Walker. 

No, they said they didn't have enough money for good backup. Too expensive.

Tolzien played 11 snaps last week. Everyone freaked out, but he wasn't actually bad last week either. 

 

Morris attempted as many passes last week as Tolzien has in two games. If Morris actually plays well whenever he comes in (the Cowboys might run the rest of the rest of the clock out...), I'll give him credit. He was better than Tolzien last year in the preseason, but that was against 2s and 3s. I don't think he's anything special, for sure.

That's my point.  If you're not giving him the first string OL then how can you equally evaluate them?

We're only seeing Morris for a drive if that tonight, so let's just see what he does under pressure (no time).

True. I really think, given the situation, that more consideration should have been placed on the backup quarterback position...

What does that have to do with the QB throwing the ball into the dirt when he's not under pressure? Walker was wildly inaccurate for his entire stint today.

Probably, but they clearly thing Tolzien is better than the masses think.

 

Honestly, what can we base our judgmenet on? Only on real games. And in the only game he played, he rose to the task, he was pretty good. So I'm not sure at all that he's the worst backup in the league.

 

(Actually, I saw all of Siemian's game in Denver, and I thought Tolzien was better in Indy than him was in Denver. It's probably an overstatement, but well, I think we have many bigger problems than the backup QB.)

Why is Superman complaining about Morris? He looks the best so far. Yes, he is going against 3rd string guys. Let him play with the first team or 2nd team.

 

Morris is playing well. Not complaining about him, just don't think he's better than Tolzien, and don't think Tolzien is as bad as people are making him out to be.

 

And Morris was bad last week, which is what most of my comments were based on.

It is the Morris-Natson show

Natson is fearless and has a non-stop motor.  Kid makes me excited whenever he touches the ball.

 

Reminds me of Super-Nat that used to play for the Chiefs back in the day.

 

Morris has to keep his short throws down, though.  He needs more precision on the short ones,

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
