  1. 1. What do you do if Jacoby plays well in 2020 and the Colts improve? (See my below description for more detail)

    • Franchise tag him and then trade him. Roll with the young, mid round QB in 2021
      2
    • Franchise tag him. See if he can do it again in 2021.
      3
    • Sign him Long term and maybe flip the young, mid round QB, in a trade.

So I wanted to play the what if game in regards to Jacoby.  I know that this may get merged but I am very curious to see what the forum thinks about this certain subject. 

 

Lets move forward with the idea that Jacoby is going to be the starter in 2020.  Let also assume that he plays the whole season because we have drafted a young QB in the mid rounds ( Gordon, Eason, Hurts).  From what I've seen this is looking like more and more a possibility.  That Ballard will take BPA during the first few picks.

 

So, my question is WHAT IF  Jacoby plays well and the colts do well during the season.  I'm not gonna put specific stats but something around 3000 yards, 27 TD and maybe like 10 picks.  Lets also say the colts show improvement and maybe go 9-7 or 10-6. 

 

What do you with Jacoby?

 

His value will obviously be up from this year.  Do you Franchise tag him and then trade him.  Do you Franchise tag and see if he can do it again and let the young guy continue to develop.  Do you sign him to a long term deal.  Super curious what everyone thinks

Franchise tag would be too much, give him another 1 year prove it contract and see what happens

What if the dog hadn't stop to do his job, would he have caught the rabbit?

Boy, what if games are fun Mr. Brissett.

Trade him like the Chiefs traded Alex Smith after 2017, which he had career high: passing yards, completions, passing touchdowns, and QB rating.

 

The chiefs got cornerback Kendall Fuller and a third-round pick (78th overall) for Alex Smith

None of those choices are appealing to me. NEVER Franchise him and pay him $120 million??

 

He has the slowest release and does not have a high football IQ 

 

He will always be a backup player in the NFL

D) None of the above.

 

I don't think they go into 2020 with him as the starter...but if they did...and they improved...then let him walk. A young QB on a rookie contract is likely to be a necessity in a couple years.

    • 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) Lynch 26   2015 - 2 first rounders, none performing in top half of league Winston 1 (PFF21) Mariotta 2   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.
    • I think this thread is a huge smoke screen, not a huge smoke signal  
    • Mr. Irsay's heart is in the right place, always has been, but it was his heart that keep the dumpster fire of Grigson and Pagano around way too long.
