At this rate, I don't think they'll need to trade up at all. They'll most likely finish in the bottom couple of spots this season anyhow.

 

Got drafted and thrown into a starting job on a team vacant of almost any offensive talent, then traded to a team without much talent and a tendency to make bad personnel decisions = bust?

 

The kid was drafted a year ago, knowing that he wasn't ready to start year 1, then tragically mismanaged by 2 teams. Get him on a solid roster with good coaching and he could be really good.

Aren't most top 10 QB picks thrown into starting jobs on teams vacant of offensive talent?  Andrew was. Peyton was.  They came out and made plays.  Rosen hasn’t & can’t even beat out Fitz.  Granted Fitz is a gunslinger & a true pro but still Rosen is top 10.  Again, I’m not saying Rosen is a bust and you can close the book on him.  He just hasn’t shown up “yet” in the league.

 

Maybe Frank is just the thing Rosen could use to bring it all together?  Maybe the Colts organization & a city like Indy could be perfect for the kid?   I just personally don’t think he’s that great.  I don’t think he could beat out JB or CK in this offense in this season.  Maybe even if they all started out on equal footing in training camp.

 

The job is JB’s. He’s got a good team around him.  I think he will do just fine. If he doesn’t, it looks like CK, with a coach like Frank guiding him, just might be something special. That sports science video really showed talents I didn’t know the kid possessed. Watching him in preseason, confirms that video & shows he definitely can spin it on an elite level.

 

I like what we have here now. If there’s an injury, maybe we offer a mid round pick for him before the deadline?  I think Rosen will get his chance though because we all know Fitz flames out.  Then we’ll see if he’s got it or not.  I just don’t see us exploring it this year unless something drastic happens or we can get him for a 4th.

Arizona cleaned house after last year and KK wanted a qb who had ran his system

Yes but he looked terrible out there last year.  Now it’s more excuses in Miami...  Next year if our QB situation is up in the air, I might think hard about bringing in Rosen.  Because from what we’ve seen of him so far, he’d just about guarantee us a shot at Lawrence or Fields...  :D

A lot of it can be put on the coaching staff

     They lasted only 1 year

Gee, maybe they can fill that piece you are so worried about with the monster $$$ they will have from dumping Clowney. 

Gee,  he was going to be a free agent after this season.   They aren't saving anything.   Now they don't have a first round pick until 2022

Peyton and Andrew should never be the benchmark for top 10 QBs. They're both generational talents that were 2 of the most pro-ready QB's we've ever seen.

 

Also, being picked in the top 10 doesn't mean you're a top 10 talent. He was a kid with a ton of upside that also needed a lot of refinement. Most draft evals I read on him said as much and referenced him needing to sit and learn a year behind a vet.

 

You can't have these known expectations that he wasn't ready for a year 1 start, his terrible team throwing him in the fire and expecting greatness, then immediately call him a bust.

 

I'm not the biggest fan of his and I don't want him as my QB by any means, but I'm never ready to call a year 2 player a bust, especially under circumstances like that.

Feel the same way here

hoyer may not have been interested in signing for just two weeks.  i guess walker it is

What are you talking about. This has nothing to do with him going to be the backup. Lol. He is good at his job on the practice squad.

I was hoping to land a young PS QB with potential 

Chad Kelly still might end up there. From what I understand walker is really good at getting film together and those kinds of things a practice squad guy tends to do.

i think practice squad rules changed recently and walker can be on there for three years now.  im not sure why we still want him though

kelly was too good to put there, he can be JBs backup after week 2

    • Repair vs. reconstruction. And of which ligaments.   Remember, recovery will depend upon the extent of the injury, the type of surgery that’s performed, and the ability of the player to heal (A. Peterson was fast healer, Luck was always slow for example).
    • Considering how good of reviews Eason is getting this isn't surprising to me. Chad Kelly had no future here.
    • I'm always cautiously optimistic, but always suspected as much. Here's my thought over 9/20-23   9/20 This injury may heal on its own with basic care, rest, and rehab. But if the strain/tear injury is severe enough, it may require surgery. I believe that's (MCL only) not all. We'll know more soon.  But I had a feeling it wasn't ACL during the game, and was hoping for only a milder MCL from that blunt blow at worst.  Time (and imaging) will tell. Then on 9/21 I was hoping for an MCL only, but always felt there could possibly be more (but not an ACL). The MCL generally has a high potential to heal conservatively, non-surgically, on its own. Nevertheless, there appears to be a lower threshold to surgically address the medial ligament if a significant instability also exists because of a PCL injury and deficient knee.  They are likely checking these scenarios out, thus the delay in deciding on the upcoming healing plan.   Then on 9/22 When I saw the hit on the outside of the knee, It said MCL to me.  To what grade was/is unknown. But the replays I had were inconclusive if there was also any frontal impact (which may lead to a possible PCL injury as well).  That's why I was reserved and that there could be more.  And if the reports that he also has a PCL injury, that complicates matters, significantly lengthens rehab time, and maybe even suggest internal interventional remedies {surgery} that might end his season. I await updates.   So lets wait to see what the surgeon actually performs before completely writing him off thjis year, for now.
    • Even if it's MCL surgery it still takes much longer than the span of the season. 
    • It is an odd arrangement for sure. Not in a bad way necessarily...but definitely not the norm. Then again...JB's treatment has really been different from the get go. From refusing to trade him if the situation wasn't right for him...to giving him $28M before he took a snap...to keeping him as a backup after he failed and actually going through with creating silly plays for him.    They obviously really just like JB...but I don't think he will be back next year.
