Why Herbert would fit in with the colts


Recommended Posts

Herbert has everything you would want in a franchise QB. He has an extremely high IQ, elite physical traits, mobile, and a rocket arm. He plays his best against elite talent. Most importantly he doesn’t throw a lot of INT’s.

 

Herbert is the type of QB that would rather throw it away for an incompletion or take a sack then throw a INT. He’s a gunslinger but he’s a smart one. He’s exactly what this team need.

I agree.  He is the one QB I want for the Colts, who I think will definitely be an upgrade over JB.  The other QBs could be a wasted pick by being some project that never develops.

 

If we pick a QB in the first, Herbert is the guy I want, and we need to move up to pick #2 to take.

 

What does that cost?  Our first of course, and the Redskin's pick and our 1st and 2nd next year? 

 

I would actually make that trade.

Oh brother.  U really think this team is a rookie qb away from competing with the elite teams? We need a couple more drafts to get there.  This team cannot trade away their picks

I’ve openly hitched my wagon to Jordan Love as it seems like that’s Ballard’s guy. However, I also think that Hebert is the other option. A lot of mock drafts have had the Colts taking Herbert as well. I think one of the two are almost guaranteed to be a Colt next year. The question is do you trade up Herbert? Do you take Love at 15? We’re still waiting on the final draft order but I know for certain that the Colts are going to want to get in front of the Chargers.

 

 

To me, they are both decent prospects, but they both come with Risk

 

I need to watch some additional game time on Herbert

 

They both will probably lay an egg year one......  Most rookie QBs do........

 

Our probable 8-8 record will probably slide to 6-10 with a rookie QB

 

Look up PM's first year...... he was an INT machine

 

But... if we go that way..... hopefully we do MUCH better in year 2

Honestly I agree. I think the risk level is about the same with them

 

But the plan wouldn’t be for either of them to start their rookie year. You ride Jacoby for the last year of his deal and let them sit and learn like Mahomes did. Then you have your starter for the 2021 season.

I just watched some reviews of Herbert

 

Mostly positive stuff

 

I think he is gone before we pick, unless we trade picks to move down.

 

I would be ok with 

 

Tua

Burrows

Herbert

Love

 

3 of 4 will be gone

 

What the Colts will actually do is a head scratcher...........

No I do not.  But if we NEED an elite QB to win the SB, that type of trade is what it will take.  Then it would take another few years to get to the SB.

 

I don't think we need an elite QB.  I think we need an accurate QB, on the occasional deep pass too, with skill players who can resemble doing something...ANYTHING...with the ball after they get it besides just run fast in open space.  Reich's scheme and play calling can guide the offense.  Moving the chains, scoring 17 to 27 points a game, no turnovers, limiting the number of possessions the opponent has is a game winning approach, IMO.

 

While I thought  Manning and Luck were fun to watch, it really only netted us 1 SB.....in the 20 years or so of having THE BEST QBs in the NFL.  ANd Manning did it while uncharacteristically playing like more like a game manager in that playoff run than at any point in his Indy career.

 

We won our SB when our elite Qb did not play like an elite Qb. Obviously, having an elite QB is not the solution.

Wouldn’t you describe Luck that way also? Herbert is a smart kid. He has like a 4.0 GPA and going to school for medicine. He is a kid you don’t have any concerns off the field. I was watching a interview with him. His personality reminds me a lot of Eli Manning.


Herbert?    And Luck,  the same personality?    No.   Not even a little.

 

The Andrew Luck that you know as a fan is not the same as Andrew Luck is with his teammates, both on the field and in the locker room.   Those are two completely different people.  
 

I wouldn’t call Luck shy.   I’d call him private.   And that’s not the same.   But, when it comes to football he is a leader of men.    Seriously.   Honestly.

Love scouting report.

 


“However, Love still has a lot to work on, with his field vision being painfully bad. He consistently locks his eyes on his primary read and does not move them away. He stares down targets and does not look off defenders. Love must start reading the field, working through his progressions, and making better decisions. Team sources felt that Love should have returned for his senior year to improve before going to the NFL, but he declared for the draft. One team source said they had a fourth-/fifth-round grade on Love.”

 

Don’t overlook the the guy down here in Miami. James Morgan.

By PM, do you mean Pat Mahomes?    His first year in the NFL?    Or am I confusing him with someone else?

 

Because KC’s Pat Mahomes played only one game his rookie year.   He threw 2 TDs and 1 interception.   Perhaps you’re confusing him with someone else?

He's talking about Peyton.

That’s one of many. But his declaring for the draft means the draft advisory committee likely gave him a 1st round grade. But there will be multiple conflicting reports on Love.

Yep, they very likely gave him a high grade... at the very least day 2 grade for him to declare.

For whatever it’s worth...  the draft is full of guys who come out early,  don’t get picked in the first, and later say the draft advisory board told him he likely would.  This happens.

It’s hard to predict where a player will go until they actually have interviews and workouts. It is really only a guess. Love clearly has all the talent. The question will be does he have a high football IQ. With Herbert he has a very high IQ but maybe not as much raw talent as Love.

I the team needs more talent across the board, but it's getting to the point where 10 plus rookies aren't gonna get spots on the roster.... So a trade up here and there I could see... And. If they think one guy is their man at QB, trading for him is the only way to get him sometimes ...

You could have prime Marvin and Reggie at WR and the guys we have under center would lower their ceilings.

I am tired of this argument. You need stars even for a future QB.  It’s a dumb argument.

    • I’d have to think that TE and LT are at the top of the list. Fisher is only on a 1 year deal after all.    CB really scares me personally though. Carrie and Rhodes gone after the season and who knows what we will get from Ya-Sin and Tell.
    • That is the thing, you can't always look at position value because there are outliers like Nelson. Of course DE is more valuable than OG but if there is an outlier like a Larry Allen or Nelson it isn't. At the time we selected Nelson we needed a major upgrade to the O.Line and to protect Luck. Had we picked 3rd, I still would've took Nelson. I just seen him as being great, one of those outliers coming out of the draft.
    • Alarming?    When the time comes, you don’t think Pittman is going to get a big contract?   You don’t think Taylor is going to get a big contract?   The answers are right in front of you, and for some odd reason, you’re not seeing it.  
    • The Colts have the cap space to sign Leonard and Smith to long-term deals this year and Nelson fortunately for us we are able to extend his 5th-year rookie contract option and post-pone his big payday a year later.   Leonard is not a true MLB so I doubt he will reset the market value at the linebacker position.  Originally thought Leonard could get a 5 year/$100 million contract with $60 million guaranteed but think it will be closer to 5 years/$82.5 million with $40 million guaranteed.   Smith am guessing closer to a 4 year/$58 million contract with $30 million guaranteed.   Depending on whom we keep/sign at left tackle I think will set the stage of how much cap space we will have left to resign players.  Do we keep an older Fisher or try to go after Viking's O'Neill (RT) and move him back to his LT position he played in college.  Both will cost a lot to retain either way and have some flexibility with O'Neill and Smith combination.   Do think Glowinski will be a cap causality since he is already on the books for $7.5 million for 2021 and expect him to make over $8 million in 2022.   The only other pending FA of note after this season to play RG Brandon Scherff but expect him to be too high priced out of the Colt range (4yr/$66 million).  So looks like OL Chris Reed might be a future option or another current OL on the roster might be able to take over.    As for the draft will have to keep in mind RG Baer Hunter from Appalachian State.  Hunter's team's OL ranked as a top-15 unit nationally that was very good at running the football.  Biggest issue have seen about Hunter from his game tapes is his a  drive killer with potential penalties with unnecessary holding and block in the backs once the play has extended past the second level.  The young man I do like best at this point in time is RG Cain Madden from Marshall.  Madden's run-blocking abilities improved form 60.3 to 74.2 from 2019/2020 and he finished top 10 among RGs.   Wouldn't be surprised next off-season if we cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut and TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m.  Some of the other FA's doubt we resign are Stallworth, Rochell, Muhammad, Carrie, Mack, Eldrenkamp, Dulin and Campbell.   After we resign Leonard and Smith to big contract extensions can see the Colts resign, MAC, Pascal, Lewis, Turray,Holden, Hunt and Reed.  Hines should also get resigned and looking at something similar to Austin Eckler contract APY $4.55 million 3 year/$13.645 million (base 3.9 million, 4.5 million, 5.65 million with 1.35 million roster bonus each year).  One FA name I like to replace Stewart with a younger improved version is Bear's IDL Bilal Nichols at best am comparing him to IDL Dalvin Tomlinson where I would offer him a 3 year/$33 million $11 million APY with $20 million signing bonus.  Again we get back either $8.125 million or $9.378 million depending on when we release Stewart under this scenario which after these movements only leaves the Colts with a projected $7-8 million in cap space currently.   Will have to do more research and play around with the futures but can envision the Colts will need to find starting WR, RG, RCB with backups at RDT, RDE, RB, FS, SS,  and TE.   Early watch list RD 1 Draft picks 2022 TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M George Pickens, WR, Georgia Drake Jackson, Edge, USC Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida   RD 2 picks Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson John Metchie III, WR, Alabama Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan          
    • If what Ballard says about a Achilles is what happens with Fisher that means he could be ready by TC. Mack looks like he might be close to 100% and he is at the 8th mark. I think they will be extra careful with Dayo. But Fisher is a vet so if he is ready he will go.  Very possible Fisher is ready week one.
