Here is what Reich, Ballard and Sirianni want in an elite QB

Recommended Posts

-High-level accuracy

-The ability to process things

-Strong leadership capabilities

-Some play making with their legs

 

was the summarization. 

 

Enjoy!!! :) 

 

I wouldn't mind going for Tua or Herbert in a move up because Tua marks all 4 boxes, while Herbert marks 3 out of 4 to me.

 

On a side note, I am very much intrigued by Tanner Morgan of Minnesota and want to see how well he does in 2020, he is growing on me with his accuracy, he was ranked 7th in all of FBS behind only Burrow, Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Ohio State’s Justin Fields, Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Oregon’s Justin Herbert.

Agreed, although to be fair I think there is likely a different priority level set on certain abilities based on the preferences of individual coaches and GM's.

To me, the "some play making with their legs" suggests they may not settle for someone that is a statue in the pocket. It is more indicative of where the league is going. 

 

Plus, leadership, I am not sure, if it is an acquired skill over time. Respect is acquired over time based on your work ethic and performance but leadership is an attribute that comes more naturally for a few QBs over others, IMO.

When you just consider the FA QBs available that will make it to FA I think Bridgewater is the closest to all of their requirements.

I believe Fromm checks 3 of 4 boxes also, though, right?

I didn't review yet, but is that short list intended to be in order, or randomly listed?

You beat me to the punch. If it’s in order that certainly narrows the list

That short list is that of Kevin Bowen, I don't think it has any weighting attached to it, IMO. That is the way I read it.

Interesting the one thing that you don't see in that list --- big arm strength.

That does sound like it's leaving room for a guy like Fromm. 

having said that, look at the QBs that Reich and Ballard have been involved with. For the most part, they big (tall). Wentz, Foles, Alex Smith, Mahomes. 

Interesting.

Fromm: 8

Ehlinger: 14

Eason: 18

Gordon: 22

Nate Stanley: 24

Kellen Mond: 41

Shea Patterson: 42

Montez: 59

Jordan Love: 69

Ballard mentions that leadership comes in all different forms. He said it can come from just work ethic.

Man, drafting a QB is a 50-50 shot.  None of the guys this year really make you feel confident they are close to a sure thing. I would say Tua would be the guy but that will take a lot of draft capital to get him.

It's more like a 1 or 2 in 10. It's weird that both Watson and Mahomes panned out for example. On average a draft class produces one QB that's passable. It's not common for game changers to come along. Tua is the guy that should be targeted on the off chance that there's two guys in this class (the 4 or 5 projected first rounders aren't all going to be good.. no way) again if drafting a guy is the move.

 

I look at drafting a QB like buying a lotto ticket. It's not a good investment, but you can't win if you don't play.

I've got more friends that are Bears fans than Colts fans and a refrain I hear from them is that the team really should consider drafting a QB every other year, if not every year. I know that's fan babel to a degree, but looking at what the Cardinals did, I don't think it's that far fetch and maybe they're right. 

Teams without QB's.. there's many and the Colts are one currently.

I absolutely love Watson.  I thought he was the steal of the draft when Houston traded up for him. Didn’t know Mahomes would be this good.  Watson still is great tho.  I knew the Colts would be in trouble bc all that kid does is win. I can’t remember the game  but Watson was hit by two defenders at the same time and got away somehow.  Either threw a TD or a long completion immediately. That kid is dynamite and Houston will always be in contention with him.

    • My guess is the season starts in October, training camp in August. This of course is at the earliest. IF they were to cancel the season, my guess would be contracts would be treated as if the players retired. Or in other words, basically the contracts would be paused.  
    • We are close. In another thread a week ago I was saying 2 years for 26 Mill. I would pay him 13 mill a year. I wouldn't go higher than that. He is good but not great.
    • Round 2a - #34 A-Denzel Mims, WR B- Cole Kmet, TE C- Trevon Diggs, CB Round 2b - #44 A-Jeremy Chinn, SS B- Ezra Cleveland, OT C- Michael Pittman, WR Round 3 - #75 A- Jordan Elliott, DT B- Bryan Edwards, WR C- A.J. Dillon, RB   Round 4 - #122 A- DaVon Hamilton, DT B- Michael Ojemudia, CB C- Albert O, TE   Round 5 - #160 A- Bryce Hall, CB B- Julian Owkara, Edge C- James Morgan, QB   Round 6a - #193 A- JR Reed SS B- Jake Lutton, QB  C- Van Jefferson, WR   Round 6b A- JR Reed, SS B- Jordan Love, QB C- Damien Lewis, OG
    • Yeah that game was nuts! I thought for sure it would be us vs you guys for the AFC Title. That would've been tough for the Colts to win at SD. We were 10-0 at home that season counting the playoffs so I didn't mind seeing Tom and BB for once. I was still rooting against them when you guys played them because I always root against them 
    • Beyond that, it's probably pointless to go all in on this season.  The draft and everything is a nice diversion, but the idea of any kind of normal football season taking place is pure fantasy, I'm afraid to say.  They're digging mass graves in New York, yet the Jets and Giants will be out at training camp in a few months?     Additionally, what will the protocol be when players get sick?  The flu spreads through locker rooms every year.  Once coronavirus inevitably hits a team's locker room or facility, what happens?  Is everyone in isolation?  Is that team off the schedule?  Until there is a medical breakthrough, I have a hard time seeing it.
