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.
I did not get to watch the Senior Bowl but I did look at the stat lines. Was Gordon that good or was it just circumstances? Is there anything anyone saw in Love or Herbert that would make them CLEARLY better than Gordon, whom may be had in round 2-3? THAT to me is the most important question in the draft for the Colts. Of course, this is all assuming that one of those top 4 QB's is even there at #13 because I don't see Ballard moving up to get any of those guys.
OK.... fair enough.... I think it's possible that Kelly might have some practice squad eligibility left, but that's neither here nor there. Didn't realize you wanted to keep Brissett as the backup.
Thanks for explaining....
Brissett being around for 1 more year with a couple of years in Reich’s system elevates him to the reliable backup spot that Hoyer was supposed to be. Having a backup with a floor like Brissett with Carr as starter makes Kelly expendable. That’s my thought process.
