And I respectfully accept your opinion. But at the same time, let me remind you, that you base your opinion on some preseason games which does not mean a damn thing. Really. Go watch Brock Osweiler's preseason games from last year. The guy was fan-tas-tic. Really. He looked like a seasoned, elite franchise quarterback. The whole preseason, he was killing opponent defenses. Then came regular season.... On the other side, Jameis Winston looked awful in his first preseason. Plain afwul. Then came regular season again...

 

Think of that, and then, try to anwer this one million dollar question: You know you will get rid of both of your guys pretty soon, because neither good enough. But there comes 1-2, maybe 3 games, and you have to start one of the two before you release both. One guy played a game which meant something already, and he was OK. You also know, that the guy didn't look good in preseason, but looked the best when there was some game planning involved. You also know that the guy knows the playbook, and you can actually gameplan for him. And there is the other guy, who looked quite ok in preseason games against 2nd and 3rd stringers. But you never tested him against first teams. And you never planned a game for him. Actually, you know that the guy has some issues learning the playbook. But, despite of this, maybe he is a bit more talented. Just maybe, because you have never tested him yet. Who do you go with? Again, you are not developing neither, you will get rid of both. You just need the guy who gives you the better chance in those 2 games. Is it really Morris? If yes, then I respectfully disagree...

I don't believe you lol. Someone has a gun to your head, and you have to pick either Morris or Tolzien to start a game. Your life is on the line and you are not picking Tolzien

Hahaha, this is called deep * definitely. :) I still choose Tolzien, because last year, that gun has pointed to my head once already. And it misfired. I might not know how, but it did. So who knows, it's maybe karma, and you don't go against karma. :)

So hard to see so much passion for a guy that has been signed to a roster 3 times, only to be waived, thens stashed on a teams practice squad ASAP. (Jags, Eagles, Colts)  During this period, he has not beat out-

 

Blake Bortles, Chad Henne, Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Andrew Luck, Scott Tolzien ... all over the past 3 seasons.

Yet people make it seem like he's the next Teddy Bridgewater...

 

So all those team and their coaches/scouts are all wrong, and some Indy fans are right?  

 

Those fans for him, tel me if he is on time, or arrives early to team meetings.. Studies beyond the call in the film room, knows all plays in the playbook, is comfortable with calling O line protections, can read a D pre-snap, can  audible out of a bad play, knows the details of every assignment, practices well, commands the huddle and locker room, and demonstrates a high football IQ to go with (any) athleticism.

 

If you only watch tape and see a couple nice plays (not against the opponents 1's either), but have no info on any of the other things mentioned (and those he's competing against), then you do not have a qualified score(s) on the QB's in question.

 

It is easy to play yourself out of a roster spot (sorry JoJo), but difficult to play your way on to a roster.  you must easily stand out above the other(s) in most every facet (not just on field play)

My gut keeps telling me there's leadership issues with Morris. Not sure if that is valid. Just seems like a ho hum type guy.

    • You have a guy in here on our forum that talks smack and can't even spell Dwight's name right. Too funny. 
    • Nah, the medical evaluations at the combine are very comprehensive and shared to/by all 32 teams.  No 'leaking' necessary. All teams will know everything. Every single player, all of them, are evaluated.   Here's relative snippets about medicals at the combine from an article about 6 years ago. Warning: even snipped, this is lengthy.   ****************************************************************   "We break down the medical evaluation into two distinct segments: internal medical examinations and orthopedic examinations," Dr. Matava explained.   "During the internal medical exam, players are evaluated by team internists for cardiovascular, kidney, liver and pulmonary health. Part of this examination includes a battery of tests—such as blood work, EKGs and, for certain players, stress tests for their heart—in order to determine if there are any internal issues that might affect the player's ability to participate in the NFL."   "If a player has a history of problems, such as (high blood pressure), sickle cell anemia, diabetes or asthma, those conditions will be noted," Matava continued. "We also make note of their current condition and any treatments they are receiving. Then, we make recommendations to the team regarding that player's ability to play at the NFL level with these medical issues." Every internist receives the opportunity to see every player, but at least one internist evaluates every prospect.   "If a player is healthy, the evaluating internist will compile a general health report which is shared with the other teams. Once the medical evaluations are complete, each player is given an internal medicine grade that can be somewhat unique for each team. This grade then gets factored into their overall medical grade. This is given to the team's general manager and head coach to be used when they make draft decisions."   "The orthopedic evaluations are performed in a similar fashion (as the internal medicine exams)," Matava noted. "There are six exam rooms, and each exam room has six teams represented within it. Players will go to each room and will undergo an orthopedic history and exam, have his X-rays and other imaging studies reviewed and have their information presented to the other doctors in the room."   Additionally, linemen receive an X-ray of their lumbar spine—the only mandatory X-ray—to make sure they do not have a vertebral stress fracture.   "Each team compiles an orthopedist grade based on the players' history of injuries, previous surgeries, current physical examination and current X-ray(s) and MRI(s)," Matava clarified. "Some players will have a very healthy orthopedic grade, but their internal medicine grade might be low because of a medical condition. However, it is more common that a player's internal medicine grade is very high, but they've had significant orthopedic problems that affect their overall medical grade."   "All the X-rays and test results are shared with all of the medical teams, and NFLPS members will occasionally communicate other findings," Matava explained. "However, each team has their own grading scale for players, and each medical team shares their grades with their general managers and coaches."   "I'm biased, but I think the medical side is the most important aspect of the combine because teams can't get this kind of information about a player at any other time in the pre-draft process," Matava offered.   "A team can always ask a guy to do extra bench presses, run the 40-yard dash or have more interviews with coaches, but you are never going to get all of these medical specialists in one room together with this type of comprehensive medical assessment again."
    • Yeah, I’m buying into the Clowney and Harris signings too.  They make a lot of sense to me.  And while I’m warming to Love, I just can’t get to him being worth that #13 pick.  We’d be passing on a huge star to draft Love IMO - Kinlaw, Ruggs, Wirfs, Lamb, Becton.  That’s really good talent we’d have to pass on....
    • A pity for Watson; for the Colts sake, BOB in HOU forever....!
