So I’ve been curious about the draft and the idea of drafting a QB.
I know that I am a known JB supporter and totally believe that given a healthy set of weapons he could be above average QB.
Back to my what if. A lot of people really like Jordan Love, Jacob Eason and Jake Fromm. What if they go back to school and we can’t get/Ballard doesn’t like Burrow, Herbert and Tua?
Love is rumored to be considering transferring to Oklahoma (who could blame him). Fromm has not had a great year and seems to love Georgia. Eason could want another year to show he is a 1st round talent.
So my question is what would you like the Colts to do? Still draft a QB like Hurts in the 2nd-3rd round or draft a developmental QB like Kellen Mond in the later Rounds and go heavy on improving the weapons for Jacoby and possibly draft a QB next year.
That class would have Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Jordan Love, Jake Fromm, Jacob Eason, JT Daniels.
I agree with all of this. People got so excited that Eli was playing and the Giants were winning. He completed 50% of his passes for crying out loud. Heck, the ESPN staff this morning was talking like he won a huge game. "Which team can he help get to the Super Bowl"? Eli has never been a great QB. Losing record in games he has started.
Yeah, I know Rivers to the Colts won't happen. Just my wishful thinking for 1 year. Maybe he could show Reich how to use Hines. Rivers uses Ekeler the way I would like to see Hines used. Mostly I fear Brissett will be the starting QB next season and we'll have another season of .500 ball.
I would take Cam over Brissett but I wouldn't want to ink him to a long contract. He is signed for 2020 already, so the risk would be minimal.
lighting it up is completing long passes like some on this forum think jb cant do. rivers is not done 3748 yds third in the nfl. was never team jb, he is just the best we have now, and i dont see any one elite in this years draft, i am for getting a proven talent at qb, it worked for the titans
