Most QBs in the league are better than JB.

And yes, Kelly should be our starter, but not yet...he needs more practice with the 1s and 2s...maybe after the bye week if our record is in the toilet.

Easily Clayton Geathers. For five seasons, I've had to read how terrific he is, and how he leads the defense. During games, I only see him routinely getting beat.

it's Brissett by a large margin he's played one game so far and many already think he has locked up being our franchise QB and is taking us to the playoffs every year.

My pick also isn't very popular but I think Nyheim Hines hasn't really shown me much..

And yes, JB is now our most overrated player...way too much hype without any reason.

 

Kelly has way too much hype with zero reason.

I think there is one big reason.  Our 3rd. string QB for the last couple of years has been Walker and Kelly is clearly superior to him and that was when he was playing with the 3's and 4's this preseason.  His off field issues aside he definitely has the talent and he did win the backup job in Denver before his off field issue there.  It's easy for me to see why Colts fans are excited about his upside.

Imagine if we could of got Landon Collins. We need a stud there. A high draft pick. Not sold Willis is going to be that guy. Collins would of made a huge difference on this team.

 

No thanks. There is no value in big money free agents. There is value in 21-22 year olds that you scout to fit and draft, and develop into players. And that is what this front office is practicing. I don't agree we need a high draft pick at strong safety. A good pass rush and solid linebacker plays will make an average strong safety look great.

I don't see how a guy who did all this in a single year is overrated:

 

- First-team All-Pro (2018)

- NFL Tackles Leader (2018)

- NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year (2018)

 

NFL tackles leader and rookie of the year should not go together, and yet, there they are. There's nothing overrated about that. He put his body on the line. Leonard has my utmost respect.

Go compare his per snap production to Geathers, then compare the cost. He’s not enough of a game changer.

It can't be proven either way unless Kelly starts in the regular season and shows us. Until then, your guess is as good as mine. All we have to go off of is his preseason, which is solid. Brissett is a game manager at this point, that's the benchmark he has to beat. Until he shows otherwise, saying he's better than Brissett is certainly possible.

Let's hope he is much better than Brissett.  I don't agree with the wild exuberance for a player with his track record.  Don't forget, Belichick had him and traded him for a depth receiver.  He saw him every day and traded him. I think the hype is strong with this one, Obi.

I am not big on stats.   Against 2 back to back top tier offences......Leonard has really under whelmed.  U can throw stats and awards at me all day, but watch the tape.  We played some pretty bad offenses last year.  I said before the season began that I rated this D after the KC beat down.  They played the Chargers and looked below average again. U want to go with stats then Leonard is all pro when he plays qb challenged teams.  When he plays top tier offences, he looks below average.  He cant get off blocks and players r wide open underneath.  I hope he has a great game against the Titans and  I expect it. I think by the end of the year we will definitely know who are our keepers on D. Leonard has cult status on this board and I just dont think he is a top tier lb....not yet anyways.

They traded him because they also had jimmy G.

I think there is a huge possibility that the defense is not as good as they looked last year. We played bad teams. Even the cowboys are not a elite offense. This year could really expose the defense and show we need a few upgrades to compete with the elite offenses.

Elway saw Kelly everyday in practice and cut him.    If he was the next great qb,  he wouldn't have been cut for misdemeanor trespassing charges

Neither of these truths is a positive harbinger for Colts QB situation.

Bjorn Werner................................Oh you mean current Colts....................Geathers.

As a fan,  i would say geathers as well.   However his teammates voted him as a captain.     Obviously there is more to him that we don't know

Laugh if you like...but Kelly has more natural QB ability than Brissett has or ever will have.

 

Well...    I'm laughing.

 

Because the idea that you know enough to make a judgement on EITHER Brissett OR Kelly --   indeed -- laughable.      You don't.     I don't.    Knowone here knows enough.

 

You saw Brissett in a bad system with a bad team.    You're judging that?

 

Kelly you've seen as a back-up against mostly 2nd and 3rd string in pre-season.    You're judging that?

 

Come on now.      I'll go so far as to add,  even if it turns out you're right,  it's not because you know anything.    You clearly don't.    But even a broken clock is right twice a day.    Sorry.

Elway's track record with knowing a QBs abilities is pretty poor. 

Manning was proven before he was a Bronco. 

Just saying. :dunno:

Pretty sure his evaluation on qbs is better than most.   He hasn't had a top five pick to get a good one.    If Kelly was great,   he would still be there

 

Also.  If everyone knew Peyton was going to be good after the year off, why weren't more teams interested?  Why did Irsay cut him?     Elway is a far better talent evaluator than anyone here

Easy. Vinatieri. Missed 6 kicks under 30 yards in the last 4 games played.  Kicked at an 85 perfect clip last year , which was below the league average of 90 or so.  If you count the playoffs he has missed around 10 fg or xpt in 19 games , way below average.  Has put the team in the possible position of being 0-2 again. Before you say he is the goat,  I dont care , this is now.

Elway cut him cause he got in trouble with the law not because he sucks.

Baloney, if he was good enough he'd still be on the roster due to 'white privilege' which he's already benefitted from several times.

Every time they  play an elite QB they get shredded.  Elite QB know how to exploit cover 2.

Take Manning out of the mix and that leaves Tebow, Orton, Osweller, Siemian, Lynch, Keenum and now Flacco. 

I rest my case.

Which will be sad because If we don’t make the playoffs everyone will blame JB. But even with luck we would of had the same defense and could of ended up with the same problem this year. Hopefully we can get man to man down so we can switch up. I didn’t think when we played man last week it looked very good yet.

You may think Elway has done a great job evaluating QBs but I don't. 

It's that simple. 

Maybe Flacco will have success but I doubt it. 

Fair enough,   but who else could he have traded for like you suggested?

I don't think there is one player that is consistently overrated by a majority of the forum.  There are groups that have their favorites.

 

I wouldn't say players are overrated.  I would say that traits are overrated. 

 

The ability and desire for an Olineman to pancake someone is really not that important in the NFL, but I wouldn't project that into saying that Nelson is overrated because he does many things well.

 

I'd say that ball-hawking from the deep position is overrated since our defense plays a number of schemes where that is not the main duty of the DB.

 

Of course, the common traits for a QB that are overrated are strong arm and 40 yard dash speed.  But I don't think many value those traits here.

 

Edit:  Okay, if I had to pick one player, I'd say Geathers.

    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....  
    • There are a few national writers who have speculated that Justin Houston will sign elsewhere either during or just after the draft. A fair question if that happens is: what are the Colts’ remaining options?  1. Sign someone like Melvin Ingram or Ryan Kerrigan. Not very good options, but I’d take Ingram.  2. Draft at least one DE early. This is the best and most obvious option, but after the second round, the pickings are going to be slim. So it will have to be a Day 1 or early Day 2 pick.  3. Roll with what you’ve got. Ugly option to even think about.  Conclusion: At this point, the Colts’ pass rush is seriously hurting if Houston isn’t resigned. Ballard of course knows this. Here’s hoping there’s a breakthrough in negotiations pre-draft, because signing Houston gives the team flexibility in the draft.  If the Colts allow Houston to sign elsewhere, given that this is a weak DE draft class, the Colts are putting themselves in a position where they HAVE to get a top DE early. And that could have them reaching Day 1 to make sure they do. To avoid that, give Houston a sweetener in the offer and get him signed!
    • Are we really going to trust a website called....  the Daily Snark?!?    Really?   And are we really going to believe those pictures which should fall under the heading of...   “Too good to be true!”    Someone typed out the deal clear as can be and then just left them there on a desk where anyone could come along and take a picture!   How convenient!       I’ll believe when Roger Goodell announces it, or the teams do,  and not one minute sooner.  
    • I fortunately, this isn’t a great class of tight ends.   Not sure what we will find if we wait until Day 3?
