That could be written about him now.
What i see, is that his negatives should be fixable.
I think JB can be successful. I think now you have to gameplan and script well to help him. And i feel , in time, he can improve the down the field stuff.
He protects the ball, so with a good D he could be “the guy.” But is he “the guy” for the Colts.
I’m not gonna bash JB. I respect what he has done. I just hope Reich/Ballard ate realistic in what he can be and if that is enough. I dont have the expertise to know. Heck, its a guess for Reich and Ballard.
I do, however, support drafting a QB (hopefully one with promise, not back-up ceiling quality) to compete and possibly be the future.
JB was thrust into a terrible position 2 years ago and he never complained. In fact, all he did was gain the respect and faith of coaches and teamates.
Then, this year, he is thrust unexpectedly into following a “generational talent” that replaced a “goat” and once again, he handled it with class. Now i agree i’d like to see more from him, but with the issues this tear its hard to tell whos to blame.
I’m not sure he’s the answer, bit i also think many QBs would have struggled here. Look at how Brady is doing without receiver help.
