I very seriously doubt he knows anything.  

 

Plus it just makes no sense.  What QB is out there worth giving up a pick to get? What have we seen from Ballard to suggest that he'd give up a pick, especially when he can just sign a vet like Hoyer?

He is hurt, but why not

 

This is a DIRE need for this team... probably the biggest hole on the roster

 

Backup OT

 

One or both OTs will get hurt for a game or two (or more :( )

 

Clark will get someone KILLED

Oh, I didn't know he's hurt. What's wrong with him? Is it serious? I just knew he's been playing well for the Eagles.

He's the rugby player that the Eagles got from Australia a couple of years ago and it seems like he's been developing really well. Ross Tucker has been hyping him a ton and he seems to think he can be a starter for some team.

Yep, seems like he's wrong. I don't know what kind of connections he could have to the FO. The only trade I could see possible is Josh Rosen, and there are issues with that.

I dont think Josh Rosen is proven to be better than JB

 

I dont think that is the path

 

If you look at this team, the one BLARING need is depth at OT

 

We have NADA after AC, and really Smith

 

I believe Clark is a placeholder, until this trade happens

Now that Hoyer is signed Chris can work on finishing this trade today. 

What trade would that be? Colts have a backup. I can't see a trade unless they're working on a young QB with potential.

I have no idea.  Brackett said there was a trade in the works.  I didn't read where he said it was for a QB.  It could be for any position.  We'll see.

He was responding to Holder. Holder said Colts needed a QB and Brackett said the Colts would trade for one.

Turns out they didn't have to.

 

We now have our starter, a rock solid mentor type QB2, and a  long term project with some upside.  We're actually set at QB.  You may not like what we have, but it's what we're going to war with because there's no easy way to upgrade from here without playing out the season first.

I agree. Whatever QB they trade for isn't going to start over Brissett this year.

    • There is a good chance that Reich agrees with this. Ballard? I’m not sure if he’s doing due diligence watching Love or if he has him pegged as the next Mahomes.
    • The OL hasn’t been perfect but no OL is when they’re protecting a statue
    • There are at least 3 people who are probably saying. I told you we should have traded up and taken Will Hernandez.  
    • Disclaimer: I still don't know if Brissett is the future at QB.  But the more film I watch, the more Jordan Love looks like DeShone Kizer rather than Patrick Mahomes.  With where the Colts will be picking, there are no "sure thing" QBs.   Regardless of what the Colts do this off-season, Brissett is likely to be the starting QB next year.  It will be intriguing to see if the Colts can surround him with better skill talent and whether a full off-season to prepare like a starter helps him improve.    https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/12/08/nfl-week-14-preview-analysis   Excerpt:   Before the receiving corps deteriorated due to injury, the Colts were sitting at 5-2 and Brissett was on pace for 3,600 yards, 32 TD passes and a 99.3 passer rating. Now left with Zach Pascal and the Funky Bunch, Brissett would surely kill for the kind of talent Tom Brady has with the slumping Patriots at the moment.   Then there was the injury to Brissett himself, which has shaded this season. Had he not sprained his MCL in Pittsburgh and finished the de-pantsing of the Steelers rather than turning it over to Brian Hoyer to, well, turn it over for the remainder of that game as well as the next one (an upset loss to Miami), Indy would be sitting at 8-4 right now. If their kicking game hadn’t devolved at a stunning rate (if you project points-per-kick based on league-average rates from inside-50-yard attempts, 50-plus attempts and PATs, Adam Vinatieri is a league-worst -11.9 on the year while opposing kickers against the Colts are +7.4, fourth-best in the league), you could probably push that record to at least 9-3 (there were particularly egregious, arguably game-costing misses in losses to the Chargers in Week 1, and last week to Tennessee).   At this point in his career, Brissett is a high-end game manager. He has the potential to develop into much more. Since the last time we saw him, he's become a faster processor. The arm talent, underrated touch and functional mobility aren't going anywhere.   TRIVIA TIME   PLAYER A: 6.58 yards/attempt, 19 TD, 7 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl slot receiver with three 1,000-yard seasons, veteran WR acquired for second-round pick, 2015 first-round pick, 2019 first-round pick who’s missed nine games, 28-year-old former All-Pro WR released after six games, veteran TE who’s missed six games   PLAYER B: 6.91 yards/attempt, 18 TD, 6 INT, while throwing to Pro Bowl WR who has missed six games, 2019 second-round WR who has missed six games, No. 1 TE who has missed two games, formerly undrafted TE whose never had a 700-yard season, three undrafted WRs (in second, third and fourth NFL seasons)   Can you match the player with his 2019 stats?   (Hint: Both of them have appeared in this post, and both aren't having great seasons)
