Jax lets Blake Bortles go

Recommended Posts

I'd forgotten he was the No.3 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Picked ahead of Kahlil Mack, Aaron Donald and Odell Beckham

 

24-49 as a starting QB

Just 27 years old...

 

..Somebody will sign him as a backup, right?

He can be a decent backup. Just don’t see him becoming a starter on this league again unless the starting QB suffers a signifant injury.

He should get a backup job somewhere.  There are a lot worse QB's in the league with backup jobs.

It's crazy that he was a Colt killer. That guy is so erratic.

Yes, he'll be a journeyman QB.  He can be a .500 QB for a team when a starter gets nicked up some.

    • As long Jordan Love not in a Colts uniform i am happy
    • Forget the draft value chart.  I think that is woefully short of what it would take to move up to 6 or 7.
    • Agreed 100 percent and that's exactly why in professional mocks I more often than not am seeing Love get passed on by the Colts. And when did that start? After the Senior Bowl where he showed some good, but also some of the same bad he showed on tape. The combine and his pro day could help his draft stock, but I think pundits are starting to wise up to hype behind Love. His issues last season are no small thing, and I can care less if the dude knows he needs to play smarter. Saying and doing are different things. Everyone understands his upside, it's really a question of how much we are willing to overlook the negatives, or maybe we think there is a good reason for the regression. Personally I watched the highlights of all his interceptions this past season and yikes... I would rather get more of a sure thing at 13, but the kid does have some great arm talent. And he did seem to make better decisions last season, so who knows how he'll turn out. I don't know if I'm a fan of the risk, though.
    • Nobody is talking about ignoring DT or the trenches. Hopefully Ballard can walk and chew gum at the same time. We are talking about prioritizing the use of premier assets. No13 is not the only pick we have and it's not like we don't have 90 million of capspace to address less urgent and less valuable needs. If he wants it, Ballard can outspend everybody on the best 3tech he likes in FA. Hell, he can get both the best 3tech and best 1tech on the market. At least at the DT position good to  great players hit the market every year. Franchise QBs almost never hit FA. This is why you prioritize getting a QB from the draft and for the best of them you usually have to use your best picks.
    • Not sure. Listening to the draft guys, Tua would be the only one to trade up for. I don't think there's any chance cincy gives up Burrow. it would kill their fan base. it's all academic. at this point, it looks like you'd have to trade up to Washington at 2 or Detroit at 3 because Miami AND San Diego look like they'll take qbs. I don't think we have the ammo to get that high.  I think Tua would be the target because as much as I WANT to love Herbert, he has just underwhelmed every time I've watched him. i say if we move up, it's just a couple of picks to get Love. Maybe Eason. there's a lot of evaluation left. combine next week
