I think we are either taking a QB at 13 or moving up to take one. Just a gut feeling.

Anthony Gordon. Unless Castonzo retires?

Yes. We have Chris Ballard, Ed Dodds, Frank Reich plus a whole room full of scouts.  I trust them.  I think that whole room knows JBs ceiling now and they will pick someone who doesn’t have his inherent weaknesses. If nobody in the draft is better than JB then they won’t pick one. Simple right?

That’s exactly what he said. He isn’t reaching or picking someone just to pick them.

All we have to do to do that is keep Brissett at QB.

Who says we will waste another year with Jacoby if a rookie sits behind him a year. We weren’t that far off last year. It’s not like we got blown out all year. With just a few plays here and there and better kicker with Jacoby and Hilton not getting injured we would of made the playoffs.

then why are you so obsessed with drafting a QB?

Because like I said I don’t think Jacoby has a high enough ceiling. I am ok drafting a guy and letting Jacoby start again. I just want to see the future in the team. But there is no doubt he will improve some with better and healthier weapons.

Sorry, i didn't explain properly. I mean JB should not start. In fact, i believe he shouldn't be on the team next season.

Well, I can't say you're wrong, but consider this:  Whatever you get for moving on from Brissett won't be nearly as much as the value you have to spend to bring in a veteran QB who's maybe the difference from QB#25 to QB#18-12.  

 

THat marginal utility is probably not worth the cost in assets when we have Tyrod Taylor 2.0 already on the roster.

 

There's maybe 2-3 QB in the entire NFL that are both better than Brissett and attainable for a reasonable cost in cash and assets.  If we don't get those guys, I'll be all fo holding onto JB until this new QB, whether it be a draft pick or whether it be a successfully salvaged Swag, is ready to go.

 

Because that's another thing to consider.  Swag IS out there.  He IS talented.  We don't know how Ballard sees him exactly, but we do know he's had a million opportunities to cut him and has gone out of his way not to. 

 

We also have enough other needs (TE, DL, WR) that a high profile draft asset spent on a QB might be undesirable in light of what we already have on the roster.

 

Just saying, it's worth considering in light of the overall discussion we're having

What most people are ignoring with Brissett is that his season is a tale of two halves, not one consistent performance. Which means you have to look at context. The 5-2 (or 5-3 start) was nice, but he had an 8 game sample size afterward where teams adjusted to him and he struggled. That's where we're at with him. Knowing that, and he hasn't adjusted back yet, we're looking at a 4-5 win season with Brissett next year considering he went 2-6 in the second half and struggled.

 

I'd get Dalton/Carr or Herbert/Love in the 1st round. If you draft Anthony Gordon, then build O-Line/D-Line and draft a RB mate with Mack. Then you can have a team ready when Brissett leaves.

This is very debatable. Depends on what you "need". For instance

 

Scenario A: We draft a rookie in the first two rounds. JB really doesn't provide ample "mentoring". Folks can harp on "leadership" all day long, but if I'm going to have a mentor at all, I want them to be a veteran (for example Rivers). And if they are a NFL veteran, chances are they have "leadership" qualities already. Give me a guy any day that's been successful over a decent period of time, over one that is mediocre but is great at "leadership".... 

 

Scenario B: We bring in a FA like Carr. He's only 28, so should at minimum 4 more years before age becomes a concern. If you bring him in to be your starter, why not let him mentor Kelly as he fills the back-up roll.

Brissett is currently set to be the 10th highest paid QB in 2020 at $21.5M... And most of that (14ish IIRC) is already guaranteed. So that leaves only about 7M in question.

 

Let's do the basic math on our QBs for this year (what is not guaranteed)...

JB - 7M (+14M guaranteed)

Hoyer - 4M (+1M guaranteed)

Kelly - 0.6M

Total non-guaranteed = $11.6ishM  (27ishM total)

 

In scenario A above, let's say we draft Love at 13, and sign him to a 4 year 16M contract (Haskins comparatively was drafted 15 last year and signed a 4 year 14M contract). Then let's say we sign Rivers to a two year 30M contract. Now we're paying basically 19M a year instead of 12/27ish, and have a better mentor for our rook QB.

 

In scenario B above, let's say we take Carr's contract over the next 3 years at around 20M per year, and we just keep Kelly to mentor behind Carr. We're only paying 21Mish..... 

 

Both of those IMO are better long term combined solutions (performance, mentor, backup) than having a Love/Brissett or Carr/Brissett combo. So I disagree on marginal utility, especailly considering our cap space. That's less than $10M delta in non-guaranteed, and actually cheaper than the guaranteed (I know we still have to pay the guarantees, just talking about run rate).

See above, and also take a look at

https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/all/quarterback/

There are many FA QBs I think that could be just as good as JB behind our OL with our running game in a back up role.

IMO, they won't keep 3 QBs on the active roster long term if they draft a QB, or bring one in as a FA. If we get out of camp without a lot of injuries, then maybe, but if we're battling the injury bug early, hard to see them keeping 3.

This is what kinda cracks me up. The worst performing unit out of the 5 is the passing game without a doubt. What we already have on the roster is a guy who ranks on average 27ish in the four core QB stats (YPG, AVG, QBR, compl%), a backup who has an 11 year career 52-34 TD to INT ratio and couldn't beat a bad Miami or Pitt team, and a wildcard with behavioral flags shooting out of his backside... lol.. And the behavioral wildcard is probably the one with the highest ceiling lol..... "what we already have on the roster" lol...

 

We aren't gong TE early, and may not take on at all this year IMO. If a guy like Kmet were there at 44, maybe.... WR depth is silly, so I can see Ballard taking advantage of value in the mid and later rounds. Both DL and QB can be had early.

Team record does not equate to "good quaterback"

 

2017 was 4-11 by the way... And 2019 the team was 7-7 if we are talking games with JB starting or playing the majority in. 

 

If you look at his individual stats from 2017 and 2019, they're very similar. Some were a tiny bit better, some a tiny bit worse. He had a hell of a lot better OL in 2019 too, so really I'd expect the gains to be more.

Not sold on keeping JB.  Also not sold on making moves for the sake of making moves.

 

BTW your math is off.  You're ignoring the guaranteed portion of Brissett's and Hoyer's money.  Like you said, there's actually only about 11 mil of cap room in play right now, but you're ignoring the fact that guaranteed money also counts against the cap, so bringing in an expensive veteran like Carr or Rivers would result in some pretty significant dead cap until the end of this season.  The only way to clear that cap is to find a buyer for Brissett.  Do you see that happening?

 

We're kind of "pot committed" to Brissett for next year.

 

It's not an insurmountable issue, but it's worth thinking about.

If you think the current talent isn't significantly better than the talent from 16 and 17, you're being disingenuous purely to spin more narrative..

Or, like people who actually watched the games noticed, he got hurt in the Broncos game in week 8, when Von Miller pushed one of our OL into Brissett's knee.  Making you about half right, it was indeed "a tale of two halves."

Then, if that's true, it was incompetant by the FO to put him in while he was still injured instead of Hoyer or Kelly. So which is it, did other teams gameplan and adapt to Brissett, causing him to play worse, or did Ballard, Reich, and the Colts make a bad decision by letting him play 8 more games. I think you are just speculating on the injury, and if you stick to what you said, then you are blaming the Colts for allowing him to play injured. So which is it?

No, it's not what I'm calling for. I suggest he'll be making moves because it's needed due to the obvious deficiencies of JB.

 

Every draft pick costs assets that could be used to accomplish other objectives. The biggest objective however should be upgrading the position that was clearly the worst on the team. As far as Carr is concerned, we have plenty of cap, so $ isn't an issue. If it only cost one early pick, that's not a steep price either.

I literally spelled out the guarantees. Brissett's guarantees are already locked in. We have plenty of space. Eating those guarantees for a year won't threaten our financial situation. Heck, we just gave Luck a huge parting gift, so eating money really isn't something Irsay is going to hinge a decision over.

Since JB hasn't improved the last two seasons why start him at all? Trade JB and start the rookie QB that we draft this year so he can get some experience. He can do no worse ihan JB. Then, playoffs next year or beyond.

They are not “pot committed”...JB’s a sunk cost...and his contract should not influence how the team upgrades the QB position...both in FA or the draft. 
 

I actually think they can save $9.M of it. So for $6-7M more in cap...you could likely get a better vet.

I do want to clarify one thing from my earlier posts. People were responding as if I want to keep Brissett and start him.  As if I think everything is fine.  obviously not the case.  Brissett looked like he was going to come through in the first half of the season, but hte undeniable fact is that the other half of the  season also happened.

 

All I'm arguing for is that if we want a QB to cover the season while we bring a draft pick up to speed, it's a better use of assets to start the guy we have until the rookie is ready, rather than to try to do everything at once, bring in a luxury starter and draft a high profile rookie too.

 

I get the feeling that we want to compete next year too, but if you spend too many assets trying to set up the perfect situation in any one position, it will rob us of the ability to field a balanced roster.  We have other desperate needs that we also need to focus on, besides QB. 

 

I'd rather roll with what we have plus one rookie QB in the first couple rounds, and pick up a meaty DE, another solid all round TE and a couple WR with some flash rather than throwing away the money and assets we need to do all these things trying to get cute in one area.

    • A lot of the reason why Peyton only has 1 ring is because he couldn't beat the Pats early in his career (2003/2004). Also sometimes teams have bad luck, in 2009 we were clearly the best team but couldn't recover an onsides kick. Many great players have won 0 SB's. Dan Marino never won one. If someone would've told you Marino would've played 16 seasons and never won a SB, nobody would believe that. Jim Kelly and the Bills lost 4 straight SB's. Sometimes circumstance like a missed FG or an onsides kick, dropped pass in a SB can screw everything up. 
    • To make it short. My point and question is this. Who is Peyton Manning, and why does he have 1 ring in Indy. From the onset, if someone told you that by drafting PM you would be guaranteed to win 1 ring, is that good or bad. BTW Eli has 2 with same team. We we all know that Eli is good but he ain't the fk Sheriff (ask Jon Gruden).   If someone told you that PM won 1 ring in 10+ years with Indy, "most" would question why only 1 with Indy. And may even say that that's a fail.  
    • Since the 2000 season we are tied for the 3rd most wins in the NFL with the Packers (2000-2019/20 seasons). Only the Pats and Steelers have more wins in that time frame. Regarding SB championships you make it sound like a team winning 2 SB's is miles better than winning 1. 2-1 is a slight margin. Only the Patriots who have won 6 have a huge margin over all teams. Ravens and Giants have won 2 SB's since 2000 but we have more wins. Steelers have 2 as well and more wins so they deserve being ranked the 2nd best franchise since the 2000's. Colts along with the Packers have only won 1 and have the same amount of wins. Like I said 2-1 is a slight margin in championships won. 6-1 is a big margin like the Pats have but the Pats have the upper hand on every team since the 2000's. It really doesn't bother me. Had we recovered a simple onsides kick vs the Saints, we would've had 2 but we didn't, it would've never came down to Peyton's INT trying to rally us again putting everything on him again, crap happens.     Since 2000 (20 seasons) the best franchises have been IMO: 1. Patriots (*belongs here though because of the cheating they have done)   2. Steelers   3. Packers - same amount of wins as the Colts and a SB win like the Colts.   Tied for 3rd. Colts - I put us over the Ravens and Giants who did win 2 SB's simply because we have many more wins and have made the playoffs a lot more than the Giants did. Winning the 1 SB combined with that puts us tied for 3rd. The Seahawks and Broncos have won 1 SB too but we have more wins than those teams since 2000 as well. Without Regular Season wins you don't even make the playoffs, the Regular Season is very important. If someone wants to say we underachieved regarding winning SB's, I can buy that but It is what it is.  JMO
    • You said nothing wrong at all. There's always going to be people who don't agree with you then try to attack instead of communicate. 
    • No worries here. That was actually how I interpreted what you said...but I can understand how others might have interpreted it differently.
