Actually what happens is, someone derails a thread by taking a tangential point and making an argument out of it.
Luck was relevant to our w/l record, and I said we would have had more wins with him than without. But assuming he would have led us to winning the division, and advancing in the playoffs is an alternative reality, considering how many positions regressed in play from last year, many due to injury.
And compared to how SF used their picks on players that had an impact, Luck was irrelevant in the Colts (including Grigson) picking a C, FS, a G, and another G and ILB (five of the lowest valued positions in the NFL) with the high picks we had. And the other high seconds being Quincy and Rock.
To say that the appearance of Luck would have righted that ship and put us in the playoffs is wishful thinking, IMO.
I hate to disagree with a fellow Colts fan. But the going sentiment (nfl talking heads) on Fromm is that he is a 2-3 Round QB
He had fantastic talent all around him with a stout OL and only completed 60%
That number will be harder to improve upon in the pros
I personally don’t see an improvement over JB with From
But...... who knows?
As far as Brissett, I think Ballard will give him every opportunity to retain his starting position. I don't believe he is ready to give up on him. I understand that is not a popular belief but the signs are pointing that direction IMO.
Now if one of those top 4 QBs do happen to fall to us he would be smart to make the move.
My question is what is he going to do with Hoyer? Is he going to take the 5 million cap hit by cutting him?
