McDaniels  backed out in 2018, Luck retired in 2019, what will 2020 bring?

Stud defensive end and defensive tackle that can push-up the middle and cause problems

Not rubbing it in the Pats fans faces too much that we beat them in Foxboro on our way to a SB.

 

And that will be Bradys' final game, too.

 

And then I wake up.

We sign Tom Brady to a one year deal so he can retire after playing for a standup coach

I can see 2020 perfectly.

 

JB ends the year on a high note, losing a heart breaker to the Pats in the AFC championship. Brady retires.

 

Then.... 

Indy doesn't re-sign Ebron, Chad Kelly goes to TN and wins the AFCS, and JB breaks his leg the week before game one. Luck comes back but re-retires after stubbing his toe in game 1. Hoyer becomes the starting QB and we have to listen to how good he is from the sunshine pumpers. Ebron goes on to set both single season drop and TD records with Stidham and wins another SB for Belichick.

 

Just another year for a Colts fan.

The most obvious one is the colts win a playoff game or two and Luck decides he wants to come back.

I don't know I mean if he for whatever reason does I bet we trade him and keep rolling with JB.

Hanging on to Matt Eberflus and Nick Sirianni. 

I initially thought this too, but then realized there will only be a couple of openings for 2020. Plus Mike McCarthy is still out there, and he'll get strong interest.

 

Arizona - No

Atlanta - Possible, but unlikely

Baltimore - No

Buffalo - No

Carolina - No

Chicago - No

Cincinnati - First year coach, they'll give him more time

Cleveland - Same as Cincy

Dallas - No, Looks like they are on their way to division title

Denver - First year coach, QB issues, unlikely they fire him, but Elway does like ex-Colts.

Detroit - No

Green Bay - No

Houston - No

COLTS - NO NO NO

Jacksonville - Possibly, but they are doing okay with a backup QB

Kansas City - No

LAC - No

LAR - No

Miami - No

Minnesota - No

New England - No

New Orleans - No

New York G - Possible, but very unlikely from a stable organization like the Giants

New York J - First year HC, but I think it's still a possibility

Oakland/Las Vegas - No

Philadelphia - No

Pittsburgh - No

San Fran - No

Seattle - No

Tampa - No

Tennessee - No, they have QB issue, not HC issue

Washington - Yes

We will probably come up against the AFC & NFC North, Tenn, Hou and Jax, and potentially the Patriots and Chiefs. 

 

But that is just a wild guess.

Great Post!

 

And much more believable than your analysis of The Colts QB!

LOL. I was going to include an arc on Adam V too, but didn't feel like throwing shade at him after his recovery. 

 

I was pretty darn accurate in my prediction of JB vs Houston. Care to do a Denver prediction challenge?

next year JB will be suspended for the first 4 games for letting a cheerleeder take his * test. Kelly will be given all the training camp and preseason reps to start season. By week five everyone is saying " does JB have any trade stock after his suspension?"

I actually think the problems may be:

1. If they continue to have a good season, Eberflus and Sirianni will be in heavy consideration for head coaching jobs. 

2. I love Frank Reich, but the two seasons he has been here so far have had low or unsure expectations. That makes coaching a much easier task, especially last year. When you were 4-12 the previous year, almost no one thinks his job is secure and everyone does exactly what the coaches want. This year, all the Luck drama kept the attention off everyone else. Next year, I hope they do not have that "luxury", but everyone may have to ignore the press clippings a lot more.

Ok, my friend, here's my prediction:

 

I predict that when the Colts / Broncos game is over, all of the Denver fans will have a greater appreciation for Jacoby Brissett's abilities than you.

 

It's  like predicting the sun will rise in the east. ..... An easy slam dunk!

I appreciate JB, and love him as a player. I'm just not blinded by sunshine, or afraid to talk about deficiencies. I was critical of Luck in areas as well. JB had a fantastic game last week and I'd love to see continued improvement and consistent performance. 

 

Love the deflect by the way on predictions... what do you have to lose. Give it a shot at predicting attempts/receptions, TDs/INTs, AverageYardsPerCompletion, and QBR....

I guess I just don't enjoy that like some do. I never predict wins either. For me, it's just wild guessing because individual games so often turn out much differently than expected.

Think we lose some of our coaches.

Eberflus might get a HC job somewhere.

I am not sure if I am that  high  on Eberflus.  Since the KC play off game and till the Chiefs game this year. the D was horrendous.  I am not sure how much of the success is because of Eberflus or Reich going to him and telling him he needs to be more creative.   We were exclusively a zone based team till this  years KC  game.

Why?  Reich calls the plays

It is my opinion he makes Reich better.  They work well together, are comfortable together, and Reich trusts and understands him 100%.  This frees Reich up for other HEAD COACHING stuff.  This comfort level isnt easy to find and funnels down throughout the full coaching staff, not just offensive coordinators, but players too.

Common sense stuff.  Coaching 101.

Sum of the parts, dude.

 

You think its a coincidence Philly hasnt looked the same since Reich left?  I think Pederson and Reich had a very similar dynamic.  Its not easy to find and is a primary reason coaches bring in and want THEIR guys.

    • Oh, that's what I fear, for sure.  But even if that's the case.... What's the long term solution?  Who starts at QB in whatever city they have to play in in 2030?  Jk.... slightly.... That damage won't be undone soon, or easily.... Surrounding talent won't fix his issues, just raise the floor a game or two.
    • Oh, the players already know that, regardless of who starts jn The present, past, future, they are well aware JB isn't a true #1 leader at the qb going forward.  Stop gap? Sure... If there's an endgame.
    • This list does not fit the narrative you are trying to put forward.  Only 2 would even be close and even they had chances.    Browns and Redskins don't even count; they are dysfunctional franchises who had plenty of chances but couldn’t get out of their own way.   Dolphins, Titans, and Bears all could have had good QBs if not for trying for retreads, sticking with a player too long (Mariota, Tannehill), and/or missing when they had good players available to draft (Ryan, Mahomes, Watson). Also jury still out on Trubisky.   Vikings and Broncos have not had the best luck with QBs lately, but they have also lingered in the mediocre to good record zone a lot which doesn't help them getting a high draft pick for QB . They also got a few good seasons out of retreads which helped them in the short term, but not the long term. Although in the Broncos case I am sure they will take their SB with PM.   I will give you the Jets, they have had some bad luck. When they did have good picks there wasn’t much available; although jury still out on Darnold (also they could have taken Lamar Jackson). Buffalo also had some bad luck for a few years, but they also blew their chance to draft Mahomes (though Allen may still turn into something).   During the last few years all these teams have had periods where they had a player/or players  as good or better than JB and it didn't amount to much other than keeping them from a top draft pick. If you don't have an very good - elite QB you are just playing the lottery hoping for one of those all the stars perfectly aligned runs that rarely happen.
    • Thanks for this.   My favorite part is his tackle at 5:30.  
    • Not a big deal.     Brissett puts fans in an odd position.   He is almost the definition of average.  His QB rating is average.  His yards per game is below average but his INT % is above average.  So I can understand supporters and detractors.
