CAR just drafted a QB in the 3rd round.

 

And the Broncos drafted Tim Tebow in the 1st. What's your point? It means jack who and where they drafted somebody if they like what they see. Josh Rosen was a 1st round draft pick and they turned around and got rid of him for another 1st round qb a year later.

This and the fact no one is willing to admit we tend to value him more than the rest of the league.   IF we did receive calls on Brissett, i'm pretty sure they were late-round.

  Also, there have been more drafted QBs having success early in the last few years than i can remember.

  If i'm looking for a QB, i may be more apt to draft a couple in early or mid-rounds and develop them.  Heck, take a QB every 2 or 3 years.  A better value than costly vets who dont seem to pan out any better than developed players.  Target QBs that fit you, and draft like you do for other positions.  It seems like a team will do aft a QB (high-ish), and then assume it will work and sort of ignore the position.  Most other positions, the team is ALWAYS looking to make improve.  At QB, most teams have a major drop to the #2.

i think we may have done well if we traded him last year, especially before the draft.  he wont get much mid season this year with a few weeks left on his contract

All this talk about trading Jacoby Brissett puzzles me. He seems like a smart, team-oriented guy that reminds me a little of Teddy Bridgewater who I think is a very good quarterback. If there is a starting position that appeals to Brissett, let him go for it next year. Being a starter brings a lot of pressure he may not want. If he wants to stay here and back up Andrew Luck, that would be fine, too. The verdict is still out on Chad Kelly. Seems to me we are in a good place when it comes to QBs - even with the questions (real or not) about Andrew Luck's ankle.

Why would he do that? Kelly can still be QB2 after this season. I don't know why people want to trade Brissett so badly. If he leaves, he leaves. You still get a comp pick out of him. Realistically, the Colts aren't going to get higher than a 3rd rounder for him.

I don't think we'll be trading Brissett unless we get an offer we can't refuse.  

 

Ballard and Reich are very focused on the locker room and the culture of the locker room and Brissett is too valuable in the locker room.  

 

His replacement that everyone is focused on Chad Kelly is someone who we're hoping reforms his life but it hasn't been long enough that you can rely on him to not get in trouble.  

 

I think the idea generally is to practice squad Kelly and see if he can behave himself for a year and when Brissett goes in FA we will hopefully get a comp pick from him and maybe Kelly can earn the backup job.

If a ham sandwich is "an offer we can't refuse" , he has a chance to be traded.

I would trade him only if...

 

1) Luck is a full go week one no pain anywhere.

2) If Kelly continues to play well. 

3) After week 4.

4) we get a good enough offer for him or maybe package him with one of our seconds next year for a STUD D-lineman.

It's all about the bolded part.  I don't think Ballard will shop JB at all this year, but if a desperate team calls, he'll listen.

I'm all in (at this point) on Kelly, but he needs a full year on the PS plus an off season of good behavior before we can truly "rely" on him. I'd rather ride out the remainder of JBs contract unless 1) Luck turns out to be !00%, 2) it's mid season or later, 3) Kelly is being a model citizen, and 4) we get at least a 3rd rounder for him. If for some reason we become ineligible for the playoffs, I'd trade him without much thought so long as we net something comparable to what a compensatory pick might be.

I have come around to the idea that this year Ballard should carry three QB's on the active roster.  Why?  Because QB is the most important position on any team and we currently have three NFL QB's on our roster.  Luck, Brissett and Kelly.   It doesn't make sense to expose Kelly on the practice squad when we know Brissett is going to be gone after this year.  Kelly can play and I have to believe the other teams know it too.  Teams carry 53 players but can only can dress 46 or 47 or whatever the number is.  Assuming we have Brissett all year Kelly would be one of the inactives along with a few other end of the roster players.  I think it would be smart to give that 53rd spot to Kelly and use the practice squad to tweak the remaining players on the roster as needed.  We gave him a chance and he has shown he can play.  It would be a shame to lose him to a practice squad claim given our current circumstances with Brissett.  JMO

I have a question for you guys.  With the love Reich has shown Kelly by bringing him in, is there a chance that he would choose to stay on our practice squad for a season rather than going to a bad team???  I mean there’s a good chance JB is gone next year & the backup job to Luck is all his.  I can definitely see a scenario where we put him on the practice squad & say a team like the Bengals comes calling & he chooses to stay with us & Reich.

I still say no. You don't totally know what you've got in Kelly. Brissett been here 3 years now. There's no rush. Kelly isn't ready to lead this team if Luck goes down. He looks good but it's mostly against back ups. I think you look at moving JB next year.

Don't know if anyone has pointed this out, but his contract expires this year, so we have to trade him or let him go.

 

I think if we do trade, he will go to the Patriots.

Cam got hurt last night.  Their GM is "hoping" it's not too bad.  What if it is?  They have no reliable backup.  I wonder if Ballard would get a call.  That's why we are lucky to have three NFL caliber QB's.  Their misfortune could turn out to be a good situation for the Colts.  We should know Cam's status today.

    • Not defending anyone. This is just a double standard IMO. If a negative person is wrong about a negative opinion, then people want him to admit when he/she's wrong. However, if a positive person is wrong about being positive (even in a situation like this where they say we'll win just to be positive even if they are faking it), then they never have to admit they're wrong because it's "better to be positive and wrong than negative and right" since that's what good fans do. Just a double standard on here that's food for thought.
    • Combination of things.   1. Cap is dropping $20m+ 2. Buckner contract($21m) 3. Kelly extension($15m) 4. Grover extension($10m)     Thats $66m flip.
    • We have rising issues, not the least of which is the 49ers not having a place to play or practice and Denver having no Quarterback to use.  We have lost 3 starters, other teams are worse off.  So here's my plan to address it:    1. Every team gets to "drop" any two games (for playoff purposes only) from their record.  This means we don't need to add weeks and teams can opt out of 2 games if things get bad enough and still have  fair chance to compete in the playoffs.  So all teams records would only include the results of 14 games of their choice.  (I know tie breakers etc. would be effected, but some sacrifice must be made).  So if you are 9-7, you could drop two losses to 9-5.  If you are 11-5 you drop two to 11-3.  This is simply so they can finish the season with a full playoff seeding that is as fair as possible.  Teams that play full seasons would get credit for all of them for all purposes except playoff seeding.  Stats etc. would all count as normal.     2. Teams that elect not to play could drop that game (and up to one other) if they really can't play.  The opposing team would, by default, get a win at 2 to 0.  (Which I believe I saw is the score of a forfeited game).  To keep one team from quitting in a case where both teams wanted to, they would have to submit a yes/no to the commissioner in secret in case BOTH teams planned to drop the game.  Those games would be a 0-0 tie.  This would also allow teams that have locked up a spot from even risking their players health on needless games, as well as teams eliminated.  Not perfect, but better than what we might see happening.  I think league approval would be necessary for a team to not play at all.     3.  I believe we'll see the 49ers end up playing out the season in Dallas or Phoenix.  Other teams have already considered options in case their states shut down (I think it is absurd what has happened in the SF area, but that is what people voted for, so be it.     4.  All players should be allowed to opt out in the next week just as they could pre-season.  They may want to be with their family.  Let them.  The rest of the players should go into a hotel until the season ends to shut down Covid for good among teams.  If they do it immediately, then instead of dropping 2 games, they may be able to make it one.  Again, this would ONLY be for playoff seeding purposes.     That's my thought.  No plan (including what they are doing currently) is perfect.  What are your ideas?      
    • I'd put him at average because of his ability to catch the ball and his lack of fumbles (only one so far when fumbling was a concern coming out of college). He's not perfect, but he's getting the job done. I still think his bad performances correlate with his ankle injury. We'll see if that's true or not.
    • The point was that if your back up is good enough to make the playoffs if your new 2nd year QB flops, that's a guy you want. I can't see a team that would pay Brissett starter money.  We would need a backup, so why wouldn't we just hang on to Brissett as backup to Eason if he's ready?
