Andrew’s poor short throws

I realize that he will finish very high in the MVP voting and then diced up Houston with ease 9 days ago.

 

But, the fact of the matter is that he crouched when he threw this week, had some passes batted down, and shorthopped a few others. 

 

That is more than enough for me to conclude his career is over and it's time to move on to Brissett.  I just hope Ballard, House and everyone else are as aware as we are on this message board.

1 game is more than enough for you to conclude his career is over?

Were you one of the people that thought the same thing last year?

 

Before Andrew threw the 2nd most TDs in the league this season?

OL didn't play well, receivers weren't getting open, and Luck didn't play well.  Lots of things went wrong.  But let's not go crazy and say his career is over and Brissett is our future starter.  He hasn't been great in outdoor playoff games, but I don't think his stats in those games are truly indicative of his abilities

Of course I wouldnt go that far. Anybody saying that is insane. However, he def has area for improvement as does the team as a whole

Isnt that also the reason to get the 1 seed? So you play all games up until the SB where you are most comfortable?

 

History would suggest that the reason home field advantage is so important is that the QB’s who lose Divisional/championship games against the home team is generally because they are out of their comfort zone?

 

We are an indoor team (yes i know we have a roof but it is closed most times) that only plays in the Elements when we are away so it makes sense that we would struggle. Maybe we should play with the roof open more often?

 

I think Andrew has always papered over the cracks during the season with his play and then when we face very good teams with very good coaches they find the way to nullify him and take away the very few options he has. 

 

He wasn’t great in the game on the weekend but the whole team collectively didn’t turn up, pinning it all on him is just ludicrous!

ill go with this.  he should have been able to see those guys, but its like he didnt or ignored them and tried to force it

I kind of feel the same way, but hope it is not. I feel like teaching or correcting vision is much harder to do than some of the other issues.

    • I actually thought this thread would be about having the 32nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft. That would ensure that the player would have a 5th year option for us as opposed to the 34th pick or later picks, where we only have 4 year contracts.
    • This is a terrific question and a fascinating thread.  I don't have a full understanding of how compensatory picks work, but draft capital seems to be king now (especially in light of the rookie salary cap vs. out-of-control free agent contracts).  We didn't need the NFL to tell us the Colts had the best draft class of 2018.  I have reason to believe more good decisions will be made in FA and draft 2019, so this is indeed an exciting time.     Based on Ballard's 2 grand slams and other fine picks last year, you bet I'd buy a 3rd rounder with a viable backup QB.  You can't make Keenum's arm stronger and I don't know if even Luck can make Bortles more serious about football, but just having one of them aboard means you could warm up to Brissett offers and jockey for position in April.     I guess you'd have to take a look at your big board vs. team needs, run the numbers, and start wheeling and dealing accordingly.  This "game within the game" stuff is truly fascinating and probably one of the reasons I enjoy Fantasy Football so much.  Thanks for your post Superman.  Good stuff!
    • Maybe Jachai Polite will fall or even Devin White. There's some decent options at the #13 spot. Not sure if Montez Sweat is worth the #13 pick, but he might be with the combine and pro day coming up.
    • He brought in so many talent potential lads into the Shoe last year. These no-name guys are quickly becoming recognizable faces.    Gotta say that last years draft was amped with talent for many levels and positions. Some potentially playoff caliber quarterbacks too.   This year’s draft will be interesting as it could pose a challenge for most teams outside of the top 10. 
    • Maybe Denver or Washington due to cap space. I'm hoping we get a player in return if he ends up going anywhere. I wouldn't complain about getting a pick either.    I can get behind this but not just for DeAndre Baker maybe a pass rusher or interior D-line will fall.
