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."

 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.

Hope it’s a smoke screen. If we don’t add competition to the QB room this offseason, Ballard’s seat will be getting warm. Irsay better get use to those empty seats in the Luke.

I have no doubt he’s the starter in 2020. No surprise by CB’s comments.

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.

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

Ballard says he does not regret keeping Vinateri, even though he was awful. I don't understand Ballard. He seems to be fine losing games because of terrible kicking.

He said the opposite of the OP's summary thankfully. JB isn't going to just be penciled in.

 

Bring in Rivers. We'll win enough games to play in January.

Ballard making excuses for Eberflus's lousy scheme. Says the defense is young. Ballard did say he needs to give defensive some help.

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

Very honest about that Ebron question and it took me off guard. Said they will probably move on from Ebron.

 

Just to be clear, it's not the moving on part that is surprising.

Ballard says the Safety position is "solid".

That's more realistic than saying it was "elite".

Who did he say that they are moving on from? I couldn't hear the question - sounded like Kravitz maybe who asked. 

 

 

Was it Ebron?

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

Ballard says defense needs more interior pressure. Also says the defensive line is "solid". Says he can live with getting beat by dink and dunk, but cannot tolerate big plays.

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

Sounds disappointed with Tyquon Lewis. Says it's a big year for him to prove himself.

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

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.

Ballard says this is a big off-season for Paris Campbell. Says we all saw his potential. 

I'm listening about Pascal.

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.

He just said it's a big year for Quincy Wilson. Got pushed out of starting lineup because he didn't play ST. Ballard also talked to him about his confidence.
