Summing it up, in advance.   "We love Jacoby Brissett.  He's a great leader in the locker room, and a great human being.  He's our starting quarterback going forward."    

If Brissett is the starting QB for 2020, Ballard should be fired.

 This works just fine to the point where you just can't pass up on a guy on your draft board. Here is hoping anyway.

Everyone keeps saying Irsay better get used to empty seats.  If Jacoby shows even a slight improvement, Chase shows a slight improvement in the kicking game( which he already has), then the Colts will probably go 10-6 and make the playoffs.  People will show for a playoff team

 

 

 

some of the games we won could have easily gone the other way too.  it would take a lot going right to make the playoffs with the third or 4th best qb in the division

You are overly optimistic ... they may stop the bleeding on season ticket holders, but they won't be picking up many either.  Single game sales will be down as well. I usually go to ~3 games a year; I might go to 1 if JB is QB and I have talked to others of thinking similarly.

I understand.  I live and Tennessee and i have seen first hand that people stopped believing in Mariota and stopped going to the games.  But in the end JB is still the best, realistic option next year, if you want to compete.  No rookie will come in and do any better, espeically if JB can improve. 

 

Everyone keeps saying prepare for JB being the starter.  The reason is that he is the best option for next year.  Now that doesn't mean that they don't draft a QB, but that QB won't be the best option for next year.

He said as of right now Brissett but they are not going to stick with him no matter what.

With these comments about the defense, I'm thinking Malik is going to meet his replacement soon.

Our free safety is the guy getting beat off the line of scrimmage as described?

hooker wasnt bad he just wasnt special either.  i think people are turning against him due to where he was drafted

 

doubt we would be talking about him if he was a late pick

 

not even a late pick, heck round 2.. top 15 though.. I don't deny that critique, but this notion that he's bad is just ... nope.

No idea where you are in the stream, mine isn't live. But he just finished talking about Willis and Hooker in mine.

This is me too. I renewed Tuesday night. The main reason I almost didn't renew was thinking how hard it will be to sell the other games if JB is the QB, and the team opens the season playing the same way it did the last 10 games of 2019.

 

The deciding factor on renewing was with the home opponents. Packers, Vikings, Ravens, Bengals. Jets, Titans, will all have lots of fans at LOS, so those tickets have a good shot at selling. That means I likely go to Jaguars and Texans.

 

Also, the CBA is expiring after 2020 season, and there is no way I renew and hand over my money for them to "hold onto" if there is a chance of a lockout of strike.

    • Yeah...below is a quadrant chart that mapped YAC over expectation (y axis) and ADOT (x axis).    Pittman is in the middle (ADOT) but way way off to the right alone. To me...that implies somewhat of an outlier. Especially when you see that MVS is the only one close horizontally (but has the highest ADOT).  Pittman had two monstrous crossing routes that he was mostly untouched. Great runs after the catch...but great scheming as well. And to your point, those plays are probably designed for Campbell (and possibly Harris as he develops). Most NFL WRs are getting huge gains on those...even MAC had a huge one early in the season...where he rumbled untouched for 30+ yards.   Those two plays accounted for more than 1/5 of his regular season production. Yes he got hurt...but he still got an 64% snap share on the season. The rest of the time...he was mostly a possession WR. Perhaps that was more on Rivers or Reich...but he wasn’t getting downfield.   When we dig deeper...we also see a decent catch rate with a handful of drops, low separation/target, low contested catch rate, low yards/route. Basically...a low-end WR2/high end WR3.   He was just a rookie...so we can expect his numbers to increase. And we saw some flashes in the BUF game...but it was on a screen and corner routes.    I still think he’s going to be a good WR2. A taller, more athletic Pascal type. But the expectations are much higher for many.   It’s just when you contrast Pittman to what we saw in some of the other guys picked just before or after him...there is a noticeable difference thus far. Even Mims looked like more of an X WR at times (and that was in NYJ’s offense).   Colts really need to bring in a talented WR this year. E004A255-97CF-489F-B7F9-A42F33FCB629.webp
    • I wish we had two of Rhodes. 1 at each outside corner. And Kenny on the nickel would be nice. We need to strengthen our corners.
    • Seahawks  Philip Rivers 
    • Lunch apparently    Dang, ok thanks for the update. 
    • As far as a QB goes I would love to trade for Watson, yes I would give up 3 first round picks in 2021, 2022, 2023 to get Watson but this will never happen. So my next 2 options which are reasonable are this:   Trade this years first round pick (2021) and next years second round pick (2022) for Matt Stafford. Stafford would ball out here with the line we have. I think the Lions would do that deal. The other option is re-sign Rivers for 20 Mill a year, which is a slight pay cut (not 25 Mill) but 20 Mill is 20 Mill which is still fantastic for a 39 year old QB.   If we traded away this years first round pick for any reason that would still leave us picks 2-7. In round 2, I am taking a LT - that is a no brainer, I want to keep Q at OG. I would go Pass Rusher in round 3 and re-sign Justin Houston to a 1 year deal to be safe.
