Luck made Ebron look great. Brissett made him look average.   What we need is a QB that can throw our WR and TE's open. Brissett won't throw the ball downfield, which is a big big probl

Contrary to the above posters, I hope hes played his last game as a Colt.

He rejuvenated his career here. He loves this place and the fans. I would attempt to sign him for maybe a short deal. Like 3 years. We have the money and are quickly losing all of our pass catchers. L

I wouldn’t do more than a 1 year deal for Ebron. 
 

Resign Doyle and draft a TE. 

I'm not sure I'd want to sign Doyle.   I like him and he's a hometown guy, but he hasn't been impressive this season.  His blocking has been questionable.

Let’s not forget that just last year he had 14 total touchdowns. Guys like that don’t grow on trees. 

1 yr deal or walk. Let’s see if his leaves can regrow again after they all seemed to fall off again this year. Likable guy with tons of talent but this years EE was Detroit’s EE, not the Colts 2018 guy. 
 

as a side note, this opens up Funchess spot.

To be fair, none of our pass catchers have been anything but unremarkable this year.

He found Ebron in FA why not another?  I think Doyle was a FA as well.  

Doyle I think was an UDFA as well.

Feel bad for Ebron, but one man's injury is another man's opportunity. Gives Mo 5 games (plus playoffs?!) to show what he's got. 

 

Sign Doyle. He's been a reliable receiver, a good blocker, and other than last season, he's available on game days.

That is true.  it's more of Doyles blocking that I think has suffered this season, but perhaps that is due to more pressure because the passing game is so little.  

 

I think my feeling is the same with Doyle and Ebron.   If they can sign them to reasonable contracts, I'd like to see them both back.  I think Ebron may want high dollars.   Doyle may give the hometown discount.  

I am anxious to see Cox this year.

Here's something to ponder:

 

What if the Colts were in playoff contention, and the playoffs were this weekend? 

 

Do you think they just tape his weak * ankles up and he plays? 

 

Also, they should've kept Hentges like most of us wanted them to! (he could've had Hoyer's spot lol)

To be fair, no receivers have had an impressive season thus far...

 

You could say Pascal but it’s not impressive it’s just improved...

 

Which says this. A QB problem.

Ebron may want high dollars...

but with his injuries, inconsistencies, drops etc. Will he get a big payout is questionable.

I think he and his agent will be using the 2018 numbers to get a big contract.   There are teams out there who may want to give him the money too.   2019 has been a bit of a down year for TE's as a whole.

Yeah because the damn dude cant catch and hes a sorry blocker as well. I think we could find a TE or two in the draft and FA who can catch and block. Ones who dont cry to the coaching staff about getting the ball and then when the ball comes your way you drop damn near every ball.

That's too bad about Ebron, he was playing well the last couple of games and JB finally started looking his way again.  Hopefully he recovers from the procedures and comes back next year.  he was a big addition to the team in 2018. 

 

people talk about his drops, etc and he has had a few but he is still 3rd on the team in receptions and 2 in receiving yards and 3rd in receiving TDs.  He will be missed, especially for a team that is struggling in the passing game.

Probably the end of the Ebron era. He seems frustrated. And I can’t say I blame him. He had that big season last season and then Doyle gets healthy and they keep from giving him the chance to keep that level of play up. He has a legit case to move on based on his usage rate this season. 
 

And he also has a legit case to make to some other team that he’s worth a big deal. 
 

I’ve said for a while now that I think he winds up in New England.

    • Leo Nard I know he is a all pro LB and he can and will set a record for highest paid LB on any team in the NFL.  I just don’t see it with Leo Nard though.  I don’t know maybe he doesn’t get the hype like LBers in the past has example Ray Lewis, T Suggs etc..  I don’t know I think we maybe be better off trading him for like 3 First Rounders and 1 third round draft pick.  Q omg we have to resign him I guess My priorities is OLINE first and Defense second?
    • I expect Houston to get signed by draft day. Whether it's by us or another team. Interestingly enough, I believe he's our last real option at EDGE before the draft. By not signing him yet, I'm thinking Ballard has interest in an EDGE rusher. I've heard we may have some interest in Azeez Ojulari. I like him, but I believe he is more of a 3-4 LBer, and we run a 4-3, so I really don't want to draft him. Seems like it'd be a reverse Bjoern Werner or Jerry Hughes situation all over again. Hoping to get Houston back, and either go Kwity Paye in the 1st and Eichenberg in the 2nd, or trade down all the way to the 2nd and get multiple picks that way (including a future pick), and a 3rd this year as well.
    • The poster you've responded to is not being stupid, he’s being sarcastic.     He’s unimpressed with Ballard because the Colts have not won the AFC South on his watch.   The poster is not interested in being patient.  He wants to win NOW!    Sooner than that if it’s possible.  
    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.
