I cannot even imagine a universe in which this would happen.  There's too much drama between pat and colts fans. If Brady came here, I think the forum might implode and suck us all into an alternate r

F that guy...

Brady, Rivers, Bridgewater, Eli Manning, Dalton, Winston     Now, Derek Carr......

Facts are facts.  Andrew Luck is one of the most exciting failures we've ever had

Luck was not a failure. The 4 seasons he played we were considered in the mix and the teams record proved that.

Just because you have a hate for him does not mean he is a failure as a Colt. 

We were winners with him but don't let that get in the way of your opinion.

Like I said, I'm not turning this into an Andrew thread

i would support brady but i dont think he would ever come here now

 

good luck selling his family on the idea, they were trolled hard over deflate gate

 

not sure the team is good enough to really get his attention either, would that make us clear super bowl contenders?

I am sure many Broncos fans felt the same about taking a Peyton Manning who had not played and many thought was on the decline.  Now all they have to show for it is a Super Bowl banner every time they go to a home game.

What does that have to do with the Colts signing Brady? 

IMO absolutely nothing.

If the Patriots don't end up signing him to a 1 year contract, then obviously they think he has nothing left to give. Why in the world would we want him. The Brady Era is over, people need to quit remembering him the way he use to be and face the reality of his best playing days are over.

It happens to all of the great ones. Time catches up to every athlete.

Yeah he's pretty good. With our o-line and if we get a few more pieces in our D and WR corps, that is a pretty damn good team that can go far in the playoffs. And if it doesnt work at some point, it would be easy to seperate ways on a one year deal.

you make it sound like he was bad this year.  he threw 4000 yards, 26 TDs, low interceptions and had a high rating

 

he wasnt playing like an all time great this year but he was better than what we have.  maybe the patriots do want him back but brady doesnt like the terms or wants to test the market

 

NE does not have great skill players at this point either

Tom Bray stats for 2019

 

                                  First 8 games   Last 8 games

Record                             8-0                    4-4

YPG                                  281                   225

Passer Rating                96.5                  81.7

 

 

I would be concerned that he has reached a point where a whole season is too much.  Also what will the price be?  A really expensive aging Brady?  I just don't see the point.  I don't see him taking us to a SB victory so I don't know why we would want to drop a bunch of cash on him.  Does anyone really think he wants to come to Indy for a bargain price to play on a middle of the pack team that is trying to rebuild?

    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........      
    • I know right? Word outa GB is that Love has not fared well to this point in any facet and doesn't look all that but yet some want the Colts to trade for him... Ha!!
