That’s a pretty self assured statement there haha. On a side note it does seem like he is picking up some steam lately.... If J love is not available then maybe him at 34?

QUARTERBACK WATCH: Talked to a director of player personnel last night who said Jacob Eason will leave here a top 15 pick. #Bucs are a natural fit. #Colts could look at QBs in Round 1. And don't rule out trades up the board.

haha This is great! Lol

 

Honestly though, he has a lot of talent, just needs a bit of refinement. If Love isn’t at 34, he wouldn’t be a bad consolation prize at all

There is a very real possibility neither will be at 34. Don't forget all of the teams after us who are going to need a QB including NE. You don't wait on a QB, its one position that will always be overdrafted because it is the most important position on the team. The QB by far will win you more games single handedly than any other position. I understand the love for a guy like Kinlaw but he won't turn us from 7-9 to 11-5 and the playoffs no matter how good he is.

If a team can get this Eason, he would be a great addition.

 

If it's the Eason who spins around to his left every time there is pressure, then no thanks.

Media confronted him about his problems with pressure and he tried spinning away off the podium... :P

I was going to say, did he turn his back to them before then making a bad answer?

Teams are going to reach for QBs this year, and they should. Unless you’re a team that has a good chance bad next year (Lions, Giants, Jets, Chargers, maybe Dolphins) you can’t afford to wait till next year for a QB. You’d have to mortgage your future for Lawrence or Fields.

 

Buffalo and Baltimore have set the new blueprint for drafting QB’s. You don’t have to get the elite top tier #QB1 in the draft. You take a guy that has some flaws but because he fits what you want to do with your offense, you can mask some of that. That’s why I believe the Eason hype. He’ll go to the Bucs round 1 and Love might go to the Colts. Flawed prospects who can flourish with the right teams are the new wave.

we need him in our offense ASAP, so he can unlearn whatever Matt Patricia was teaching him.

Did Herbert ever confirm he did in fact speak to the Colts??

No, he's refusing to speak about who he's met with. If I'm not mistaken he did the same at the Senior Bowl too.

I hope our new QB likes handing the ball off more than a lot of the top ranked QBs do.  Please, no more hero gunslingers.

I agree, but it seems like we’ve lost a lot of games over the years because we couldn’t stop an average to below average QB on the other side!

I'd rather have a Brett Favre or Peyton Manning than a captain hand off lol

100% agree. QBs should be overdrafted. Especially if the team doing the “reaching” is a team that actually has a plan for them.

 

Like TJ Hous. said, how many of these guys are really busts, and how many just don’t go to the right system? We thought Tannehill was a bust but look what he’s done in Tennessee. Nick Foles was a Super Bowl MVP in Philly but looks lost in Jacksonville. 
 

You should always take a swing at the QB position. It just has to be calculated. We have a good coaching staff. All we have to do is find a QB that has what Reich wants and pull the trigger. I mean if Jacoby Brissett can go 7-9 with his teams, do we really think that Love, Herbert, or whoever can’t do better?

Let er rip. At least 40% of the fan base will display disdain no matter who the selection is.

    • 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.
    • Maybe the pass attempts will still be high, but we won't be seeing the Marino, Fouts, Big Ben , Arians/Coryell type of bombs away attacks, IMO.  Its going to be more underneath stuff, which requires DBs having certain skills that are more pronounced than the skills needed to defend the offenses of the past.   Maybe it was an anomaly,  but Watson's ball velocity was like 50 mph at his combine.  Hardly even NFL caliber.  So while he may be able to chuck it with accuracy down field a few times, he doesn't have the arm to run a deep out or bombing attack style of offense, and he has to open up passing game with the threat of his legs and escapability.  Even that also requires DBs with tackling skills.
