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.

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.

the schedule isnt gonna be weak as hell every year like it was this year. also the division is gonna get better Tennessee already is improving alot the Texans could get even better with an improved O line

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.

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

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?

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.

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? 

Yes

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.

    • All but done for the division on.. and a loss to KC will have them fighting hard for that 5th spot (playing the NFC winner) which is what everyone wants outside of the 1 seed I'm guessing. 
    • I thought this was a John Lennon post for some reason.
    • I'm not ready to write off Hooker. His PPF grades if I recall were not terrible. He played last year surrounded by a rookie corner and a corner that was shipped to the Jets and I believe mostly a rookie SS and a DL that was not near as good as last year. Buckner has been a huge improvement and has made everyone around him better especially Stewart. Rhodes has been terrific and Ya Sin is greatly improved as is our 2nd year SS. If I recall Blackmon was drafted as a SS which he played in college which if Hooker is resigned could put then both on the field at the same time. Hooker got some bad raps last year on a few long bombs that turned out to be blown coverages by the DBs. Not saying Hooker will be an all pro for us or that we will even resign him but I do think he can be a good FS in the league. I have been defending him quite often but no, I am not related to him,
    • I think the Rams take the NFC West, they are a very balanced team. Cardinals will fade when the going gets tough, IMO.   If Brees comes back, Saints or Rams take on the Chiefs or Steelers in the SB. 
    • They are 7-3 and have one of the best QB's in the league who is having an amazing year.  Great RB, great WR and a defense that is performing in the top half of the league.  They have already beat the Saints with Brees.
