The scary truth of the colts future

Recommended Posts

Most of the post here is anti JB's performance, I included.  So, there must be some truth to this if they see what I see in terms of JB's play making abilities downfield which is non-existent majority of the times.  So, the truth is out there to recruit, lobby for a new signal caller...We can't simply win with JB and the play calling on Reich...

The future is bright. If we draft a new QB and they sit a year we will be fine if ballard picks the right guy. Mahomes won MVP his first year starting. Lamar is 22 and on his way to a MVP in his  full  year starting. As long as Ballard doesn’t pick the wrong guy we will be just fine. I am more worried about losing Eberflus very soon.

I dont think colts wins enter into his victim selection much. 

 

If you can avoid being a horny teenage d@#chebag (possibly experimenting with grass) while at a rundown summercamp consisting solely of other horny teenage d-bags experimenting with grass, I think you'll be ok.......

I wouldn’t go out of my way to be on his list.

Although to be fair, have you seen some of those girls at those summer camps? If not for the threat of a machete to my head, I might bite lol

I don’t think we’re really in that bad of a shape. Outside of QB and WR, when healthy we have a very good roster. Plus, Lamar looked like crap his first year. I and many people thought all he could do was run, but man he’s proven me wrong. At the end of the day, we can only sit back and watch, so my plan is to continue to do that.

Before I get into this let me say I’m a big fan of Ballard and Reich, none of this will be bashing what they’ve done.

 

Now here’s the scary truth. It may take a few years before they realize Brissett isn't the answer at QB, but there will be better days ahead for sure, just going take a little longer than we want to admit.

The Colts struggled with a horrible OL. Finally got it right then #12 bowed out. So when the OL personnel get new contracts they will be highly paid people protecting ...who? All that icing but no cake. This will be the biggest test for the GM.

Nonsense this team is good ,the quarterback position is going to tell the story .

It all starts with the QB. This QB is the definition of mediocre. I said it since the very beginning of the season. Game manager QB. Look at our record. The definition of mediocre. Time for the Colts brass to make some big decisions soon. The future is not Brissett.

I respectfully disagree. The final part of the cake is the icing, which in this case, would be a good QB.

I see the team entirely different.

 

Safety - solid with young depth

CB - solid with young depth

LB - solid with young depth

DE - solid (but aging) with young depth, could use a young "Sheard like" player.

DT - need upgrade and depth

 

OLine - strong with some depth (Haeg & Andrews). Upgrade RG, or sign/draft RT and slide Smith over to RG. Glowinski as depth is fine.

TE - could use an upgrade.

WR - This is a tough one. Our #1,#2,#3 have missed a ton of games. Add in Fountain, and 4 of our projected 6 WR's have either missed all, most, or a good part of the season.

RB's - we are solid with depth

QB - After 11 weeks, my opinion is JB is not the long term answer, but I'm not qualified to make that statement definitively.  However,  I am sure that Ballard and Reich already know this answer.

 

P - Good enough

K - need upgrade

 

Agreed! I think our offense is our biggest concern right now. They struggled to produce outside the rushing attack. The defense kept us in most games all year. Get the defense a couple more spots and focus  mostly on offense in the draft is my hope. Not at all sure what to do about QB though.

Picking the right guy, not like that’s easy to do. Manning and luck fell into our laps. Ballard will be tasked with a much tougher road. Will be picking in the mid teens this year and we all know how much Ballard treasures those so called swings. He’ll be in a dilemma this offseason or next rather to trade some picks to move up and select a QB or stay put and hope you hit on your second or third guy.

We might not have  to trade  up for a QB.

It will be interesting if we can keep Sheard with the offense having to have a major overhaul. Eberflus might be gone too.

I think you are wrong about future. We are 6-5 with missing FGs, and missing QB for 2 game, and WR missing a lot of games, and TE who is #1 in drops. We have the most cash available to spend in the FA, and good drafts don't forget WASHINGTON Rd 2. Based on CB draft track record, I am happy where we are given the situation where we could be with out QB retiring in preseason. 

I some what agree, Fact is every team in the league face or have faced the exact same thing you said every season. So to me,thats not really the difference maker. What I do  believe what you said is we have a ton of cap space and the colts need to use it now, not in the next 5 years. Older fans like myself are dying every year and can not wait 5 years or longer. Get it done today,not tomorrow.I've a colts fan for 56 years now since I've been 8 years old and 2 only rings in all that time is totally unacceptable,for any team. Esp. considering we have Manning for what 13 of those years and only 1 ring. That really stinks.

Substaining an offensive  drive would as the defense  would be fresh. Not to mention  the defense  would play harder if the offense  was actually  pulling  its  weight.

I said this when Luck retired, his retirement will put us in QB limbo for the next decade. Won’t be good enough to compete and won’t be bad enough to draft a top prospect. Our only hope is to get a sleeper in the first round.

That's why I'm in favor of waiting on a QB this year. I'm not in love with this class outside of Burrow and I really dont get the Love hype. 

 

This is the year I'd spend some money in FA. Go after some young skill players that can help now. Amari Cooper, Hunter Henry, Austin Hooper, Derrick Henry (unlikely), Kenyan Drake (or DJ depending on what AZ does), Eckler or Gordon. 

 

Then continue to build the team through the draft and go all in for Lawrence or Fields in 2021.

I hope you're right.

I believe Reich leaves him out there to lose the next 2 games. Top 10 draft pick will be available.

 

Oh well. Been a rough season (including pre-season)

I think we should look at drafting Tua--we're currently at pick 14, and adding our 2nd rd pick would get us well into the top 10

The scarier thing about our season and future is the complete free fall weve been in for 2 months now with no sign of stopping. 6-8 wouldn't feel so bad all things considered if we weren't teased with the thought of being a good football team early in the year. Boy how things can change in a hurry in the NFL.

Reich's quote during the game last night that Brissett is my guy and we won't be drafting a Qb was a totally depressing thing to hear. Blind allegiance from him and Ballard will get them both fired eventually. Brissett may be a good company man, fine in the locker room, etc but it is what you do on the field that produces wins. How long before scatter gun, innacurate throws from Brissett turn the wrs against him? Or the defense is mad about always being on the field or we arent scoring points so they almost have to pitch a shutout? Or players start to question so called leadership for not replacing Vinatieri or the way that Ebron quit on the Colts?

Yes because they are under the same regime for 6+ years which we just started last year. Turning around a franchise takes time.

    • There is an Antonio Gates article in Yahoo Sports, says in considered signing with the Colts in 2019.  I know his age is up there, 39, will be 40 at the start of the season.  It mentioned that he has retired mindset but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  With the Rivers to Gates was one the best connections.  He could be a valuable 3rd receiver for the Colts and Rivers.  I think drafting a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round should be considered as well. 
    • This all reminds me of Jachai Polite last year, not being polite at all with his interviews, lol.
    • Didn’t we have this same conversation a year ago?   You put some artificial deadline on what will be your “last mock”.     Why?   You like doing them, so keep doing them.   As for this one, I’m afraid it’s my least favorite on a variety of levels.   Our pick 44 is worth 460 points.   The two picks we get back are worth just 390.   That’s way too big a gap.    Also, I don’t see the pucks as realistic or desirable.  Not sure Higgins falls to 34.   The next second puck is in the low 60’s.   Ruiz should be long gone by then. Hurts is one of my least favorite QBs.  Edwards is fine.   Then a second OL at R4 followed by a much needed TE too late in R5.      I hope you’ll keep doing more of these.  You enjoy doing them, so keep having fun!  That’s what this is all about!   
    • The one thing JB is has been a great teammate and a good citizen for sure. His QB’ing skills lag behind those assets though. I’m content with Rivers and Kelly, assuming that the team has a future purpose for Kelly. CB knows what Kelly can or can’t do in practices and stuff. He has stayed clean and had zero distractions. He definitely has the QB talent, can he lead a team with his new found choir boy status? Time will tell.    it would be tough to go from highly propped up starter with a raise and tons of praise into a back up spot. Except that money could help. I hope we move on from him, he is not our future.
