At this point, I’d be fine with giving up our first rounder for Derek Carr or Dak Prescott if they become available, unfortunately that’s the asking rate for QBs.

I'd be cool with kicking the tires on Carr (pun somewhat intended). Dak Prescott is trash, just roll with Brissett at that point

If we can draft a good QB we should. At best JB keeps position warm for a prospect. CB needs to get creative and do whatever is necessary to trade into #1 slot for Burrows. I would give up our #1  and #2 we got from Washington + a #1 next year for Burrows.

 

We will go for Trevor Lawrence after Jacoby wins 4 games next year

Before JB comes back I'd rather see us get Carr,

Raiders are not gonna replace Carr until they have a replacement in hand

I thought you wanted to NOT have mediocre QBs

Rivers

 

I didn't know it was suddenly 2005 again, why don't people let me know these things?

or a number of back ups.

 

We have a backup right now.  Why do we need more?

That being said, we could trade up and get Tua or Hubert, both are better options than JB..

 

Not out of the box they aren't.  None of the top QBs in this draft are plug and play players.  Throw them into the fire and they will burn up.

woof. No thank you. Might as well use the first on a rookie qb. Cheaper and longer control as well as being able to groom them for our system.

I just think JB holds on to the ball to long and that will be his downfall. 

So the reason you want to throw money at Bridgewater is Jacoby sucks.

 

No effort to actually assess whether Bridgewater would actually improve the team.

 

That's about what I thought, and it disappoints me.

 

Bridgewater might give us 1-2 games of improvement.  Moving us from 7-9 to maybe as high as 9-7.  Not seeing the imperative here.

Injuries doesn't make a QB take longer to read a Defense. 

Since when?

May bad, I thought Carr was going to be a free agent...but he's signed through 2022. I would definitely not trade for him

I just asked the question was TB better than JB. And w/o our Kicker who lost about 2 or 3 by himself we would be 9-7 so that would've made us 11-5 for TB.

I think they truly like him and are all in on him. I think we’ll hear about the injury a lot to justify why they will stick with him as our franchise QB.

 

 

I don't think they see him as their franchise QB.  But what I do think is that Ballard's going to assess the viable alternatives at QB, and the cost of making roster moves required to bring them here, and decide that Jacoby is still the best value and the best solution to the problems he presents is to draft and groom a successor behind him -- which they can do with Jacoby just as easily as anyone else.

 

I expect the Colts to draft, not a first round megatalent, but an understudy QB who has tools and can be molded over the course of a year or two.  Sort of like the way Mahomes understudied Alex Smith.

Every draft pick of 2019 has been productive except the last 3 the 6th pick and the two 7th. Everyone else has played and played well. 

So.......Ballard had had 3 years to build this D and if anything, they have gotten worse.  I go results not on how many of his picks r starting.  This D is horrendous.

you have to give that credit to JB too.  It was Brissett that was robbed of those same 2-3 games.  That's the difference between failure and squeaking into the playoffs.

I do think it's not over - if for no other reason than who are we going to replace him with? I don't think Ballard and Reich would take any QB we would be in a position to draft over Jacoby, and the same is likely true of any free agents.

I will be shocked if Jacoby isn't the starter week 1 of the 2020 season.

Then we can look forward to this garbage next year too.

Decent back up, but a guy that just plays scared. He holds onto the ball too long, misses open receivers and just can't move the team. This game has to be the final nail in that debate..

I don’t think it is over. Not because of Brissett himself. But I think there’s just no better options that are going to be available.

Colts didn't have a WR to get 600 yards this season. That's sad.

I wouldn't put all of blame on JB play but it is apparent that he is at best an average QB. He is not going to win games on his passing ability. We had no receivers all season. our TE play is not great. Doyle is not a vertical receiving threat. He is a possession type receiver. We have a good OL for running the ball. However the pass blocking has not been great. Not sure if that is on the line or JB's tendency to hold onto ball too long.

And many times when he does throw it the ball is slightly behind the receiver. He is just not accurate enough for a top flight quarterback.

Very meh. He’s just been pretty bad this year. Not that he’s played behind a good OL, but still.

He would have a great Line here to protect his old butt lol but I know he is older. I like Carr but we would have to trade for him. Chargers lost like 5 games this year by 7 points or less. Rivers still has it IMO. Just throwing it out.

If that’s the case, if we get past the Raiders (mid first round), and get our choice of Derrick Brown or Javon Kinlaw with our first pick, then we move back into Round 1 giving up both our 2nd rounders.

 

If the Raiders hand is forced and they don’t draft a QB and Herbert or Love is available, we get one of them. If the Raiders draft a QB, they’d be fine with both our second rounders for Carr then.

Keep believing. Hopefully the other GMs in the league also believe so we can do what we want to do in the draft and FA.

I'd rather have Dalton tbh. He's capable of having great games, and I believe he would with our O-Line. Not in favor of going all defense. Still want to go BPA at positions  of need.

I do not think Dalton is bad but I have never been fan of his. He has been above average. No playoff wins but then again his coaching has been suspect too.

    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.

    • NFL Network’s Cynthia Frelund Picks Colts as ‘Super Bowl Sleeper’ Ahead of 2022 Season The Colts received more high praise from another national media member. By Luke Schultheis    According to NFL Network’s Cynthia Frelund, the Indianapolis Colts are her ‘sleeper pick’ to win this season’s Super Bowl Championship: Of course, a start would be the Colts winning the AFC South again, which the franchise has not accomplished since 2014 (and has the longest current drought of any AFC South squad). That being said, there’s real reasons for optimism in Indianapolis right now. The Colts already had a fairly well balanced roster and with the big offseason additions of starting quarterback Matt Ryan, pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue, and cornerback Stephon Gilmore, it’s hard not to see how they significantly improved this offseason. Ryan should provide much needed leadership, consistency, and accuracy to the Colts starting quarterback position that was sorely lacking last season. Meanwhile, Ngakoue provides a consistent impact speed edge rusher to further complement All-Pro DeForest Buckner’s interior push—and a natural as new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley’s ‘LEO’, lining up ‘wide-9’ to get after the opposing quarterback. Then you have Gilmore, who should provide a #1 veteran cornerback presence with ball skills and give the Colts secondary a linchpin in steady, reliable coverage—often lining up across from the opposing team’s best receiver. Not to mention, the Colts have a number of rookies who could immediately contribute including wideout Alec Pierce, tight end Jelani Woods, and safety Nick Cross among others. The Colts defense truly has a chance to ascend into a Top 3 overall unit this season, but their ultimate team success may come down to just how much Ryan has left in the tank and whether their passing game can do enough to make their offense legitimately well-balanced and dangerous (to pair with First-Team All-Pro workhorse Jonathan Taylor and the dominant ground game). Given what’s already transpired this offseason, hoisting an elusive Lombardi Trophy isn’t all that unreasonable. The Colts shouldn’t be currently considered a favorite by any means, but it’s not completely out of the question either that Indy could eventually emerge as a potential darkhorse. Winning the AFC South though should be the start.
