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!

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.

    • Surprised to see that not many mentions Kuechly or Wagner as the best 'linebackers ever' conversation. 
    • This whole Chad Kelly phenomenon on this site is fascinating 
    • Anthony Walker. Now or never.
    • Don’t feed the trolls.   We have an ELITE Dt. We have an ELITE Lb.   If the ends can generate a little pressure our D could be lights out. Add in the fact our o-line should be great and produce a strong run game - keep the D fresh.   Bold Prediction - Colts finish with a top 5 D.
    • I'm sorry,  I've said this before,  but I see you added more material here and you've completed misunderstood this.   First,  there are no writers for the on-air talent.   None.   The talent writes what they want to say.   I even contacted a friend who works at ESPN for the last 30 years.   He says all on-air talent writes what they say -- period.   And thre is no company position on various issues.   So, for example, on al the debate shows you talked about,  the hosts say what they want.   No writer writes what to say for them.      Here's what your article is talking about.   The company is clearly on the liberal side.   They've hired in the past a bunch of Conservatives who wanted to say whatever they wanted to say.  Mostly about politics in the real world.   The name Curt Schilling might be familiar.   He had been warned repeatedly about talking about real world politics that have nothing to do with sports.   He kept doing it and basically dared the company to do something.   He thought they wouldn't.   They did and eventually he was let go.      ESPN is trying to stay away as best as they can from real world politics.   If oyu want to point to Conservative political views,  fine, you'll get no argument from me.   SPOILER ALERT:  That's going to take a huge hit on Wednesday, 5/27,  in the aftermath of the dead black man in Minneapolis and the black man in New York who a white woman called the politce on and lied about what he was doing (caught lying on tape), as well as the jogger in Georgia who was shot and killed months ago and the video has now surfaced.  Outraged professional athletes are now loudly speaking out.    That means ESPN is going to talk about the real world even thought most of their viewers may not like it.   But you have to cover what the athletes are doing and saying.   Many people here (most?) think ESPN doesn't like Jim Irsay and the Colts.   Do certain anchors, hosts, reporters have issues with us?    Maybe,  possibly.    But there is no corporate position on Irsay or the Colts.  All on-air talent is free to say whatever they want to say.   No one tells on-air talent what to say when it comes to day-to-day sports.   To be clear,  ESPN doesn't want anyone trashing the sports they cover or hurting the professinal relationships.   If you're going to attack the commissiner of a sport,  then you had better have more than just an opionion.   You better have some substance to back it up.    Former NBA Commish David Stern was legendary for calling up the head of ESPN and SCREAMING about things he heard said about the NBA on ESPN that he didn't like.     You wrote that there's plenty of things on the internet to support your view.   Please feel free to take another crack at it,  because the first article doesn't support your position.    It's taking about something different,  how ESPN doesn't want the real world of politics infringing on the day to day coverage of sports.   Some things can't be stopped.   More women in pro sports.   Gays in sports.   How athletes react to real world injustice.    But if Curt Schilling wants to spew hate about Muslims, which he did,  or talk about transgender bathroom laws,  that's going to lead to the unemployment line, which it did. What do those issues have to do with sports?   Last thought:   I try as often as I can to explain the world of the media to people here.   30 years in the business so I should be able to to.   Frankly,  I take no pleasure in strongly opposing your views here.   In fact, no one is more surprised than me.   Because, quite honestly,  I think you've had an incredibly long stretch of really top notch posts for many months here.    I think you've seriously rasied your game and I find myself in agreement with many of your views.    And if I haven't given you a ton of likes then shame on me.   I try to reward good posting.  I find your posts smart and well reasoned.   I enjoy reading your views.    And then we hit this thread.   And I did a double-take when I saw who posted about the media.  So please take this as the compliment that it is intended.   I'm a fan of yours.   Just not here on this particular subject.   If you have other comments, or questions,  I'm happy to continue this discussion....   my apologies for the length of ths post.   Just so much to respond to.   NCF
