I'm not using them as a model. I'm saying the fans thought he should be gone and the bengals kept him anyways. The fans thought his seat was hot for years. I fail to see how that's using them as a road map. even without explaining myself ita not using them as a road map. Just because I mention that team doesnt make them a road map.
Several fans think Ballards seat should be hot of he doesnt address the QB position at all this draft/FA. Personally speaking, when it comes to the QB position, irsay is very involved in that aspect of the team. So whoever the Colts want at Qb irsay is there heavily involved. I'm not worried. irsay will be here the next 5 years. Book it.
Weak? Have you compared it to the 5 previous years.
For the fun of it, let's gauge "good" by # of QBs taken in the first round. Depth is pretty irrelevant (beyond the 1st) as teams aren't looking for their franchise guy in the second and beyond (sure they'll take a shot at a developmental guy, but they aren't all in). And then, let's look at how they did last year ranking wise. I'll use PFF's ranking to keep it simple, listed in parens (JB was ranked 29th BTW)
2019- 3 first rounders, none performing in the top half of the league
Murray 1 (PFF25)
Jones 6 (PFF24)
Haskins 15 NR
2018 - 5 first rounders, on performing in the top half of league
Mayfield 1 (PFF18)
Darnold 3 (PFF28)
Allen 7 (PFF26)
Rosen 10 NR
Jackson 32 (PFF5)
2017 - 3 first rounders, 2 performing in top half and top 10 of league
Trubisky 2 (PFF27)
Mahomes 10 (PFF2)
Watson 12 (PFF9)
2016 - 3 first rounders, 1 barely performing in the top half of league
Goff 1 (PFF19)
Wentz 2 (PFF16)
2015 - 2 first rounders, none performing in top half of league
Winston 1 (PFF21)
2020 will have at minimum 3 QBs (Burrow/Tua/Herber) taken in the 1st (probably 3 top 10), likely a 4th (Love) 1st rounder though, and possibly 5 or 6 (Eason and Fromm). And that's in a year with incredible talent in FA. So not sure I'd call it weak. It'll have as many or more QBs taken early as 4 out of 5 years, likely more.
