Gordon hit on some shorter throws. Nothing he did answers the questions about his arm strength. However he does get the ball out quick and throws with anticipation. He had a nice TD on his back foot with a fade to the corner of the endzone.
Love and Herbert looked in control. Loves two long passes were on the WR. They were beautiful throws. One was like 50 yards on his back foot and was just effortless while the pocket collapsed. He had a lot of hand offs to the RB. He had a couple nice shorter throws in the fourth.
So no I don’t think Gordon did anything that made it look like he outplayed them. All three did what they needed to. They didn’t hurt or help their draft position.
It really is a terrible set of cards to be dealt. I trust Ballard to do the best for the franchise even if it cost him his job. If BPA is a blue chip position other than QB, my money is on Ballard drafting that player. Reaching for a QB is always a roll of the dice but I expect Ballard to stay true to his board and avoid it. A lot will unfold between now and April so all this is speculation
Couldn’t narrow down 5 so here’s my top 10:
1) Chase Young
2) Isaiah Simmons
3) DeAndre Swift
4) Derrick Brown
5) Jerry Juedy
6) Jeffrey Okudah
7) CeeDee Lamb
8) Joe Burrow
9) Jonathon Taylor
10) Jedrick Wills
If we don’t draft a QB and we are still having QB issues next season he will be on the hot seat and at that point he might have to reach on QB next year just to save his job. By drafting one he will have a lot longer leash to give that guy time.
I agree, sadly, that is what professional sports has become. It's all about the money. I'm am on record being unimpressed with JB, and am highly doubtful, he somehow makes a miraculous improvement in his QB skills this offseason.
But if we start bringing FA's in, who are more interested in THEIR stats, and how much money they can make aka Ebron, then contributing to the team, then we are just digging ourselves a deeper hole. You either want to be a Colt or you don't.
