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.

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?

    • 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.    Look at the type of QBs we'll be facing, including Minshew and Tannehill, and I see those offenses as having a fundamentally different passing attack than what Rivers/Eason is going to have.  JMO.
    • I think the 3 in a row was in response to what would define the greatest team in the salary cap era. Irsay did say he wanted a team with multiple SB wins when Luck was drafted, and some felt like he was throwing shade at Peyton, maybe yes, maybe not.   There were instances I defended Peyton where it felt like he had little margin for error in playoff games and then instances where I felt he missed some reads and got "happy playoff feet Peyton" in key moments leading to "playoff Peyton" jokes. It was a mixed bag with him but the ultimate stat to me was Peyton's record vs playoff teams in the regular season hovered around .500, against playoff Ds. So, when that record manifested itself in the playoffs, it was not surprising. But people were surprised because a lot of our 12 win seasons were padded with wins against middle of the road teams and the Peyton hype led to higher expectations too.    Plus, the other ignored aspect is with a lot of teams on par at the playoff level, the differences in coaching shined a bit more come playoff time and I do not believe we had a great coaching staff on defense and special teams consistently. Then, they let them play with a little more contact from DBs in the Peyton era come playoff time than the regular season, which was disruptive for a timing offense with a "not so" rocket arm from Peyton, even in his prime compared to a Favre or even Brady.   Factor all of the above factors, our playoff record with Peyton was as expected. The only time we beat a #1, #2 and #3 scoring D was when we ran well, giving our undersized but speedy D a shot to play at max. efficiency and allowing us to minimize our weak special teams.
    • Pathetic division with tough schedule against NFC West and AFC North.. then Eagles and Cowboys have to play top teams of NFC North and NFC South..   WHOOOOOOOOOOOFFFFFFFFFFFF   Forget about it, this division is going to be even worse!   But remember, NFC East never had a repeat champion in a decade or so.   Close your eyes, it's not good for viewing.   Cowboys 8-8. Eagles 8-8. Giants 4-12 Redskins 1-15   21 wins, 43 losses.   Favorite spanked kids of all the NFL.   Redskins at least get the #1 overall draft pick, which they missed last draft to finally replace Haskins.
    • It doesn't matter. If you, Colts fans, Jim Irsey believe that Peyton Manning is one of the greatest to ever do it, Colts should have had more than 1 ring to show for it. Jim Irsey even said this. That's why Jimmy stated he wanted like 3 in a row (something of that sort) or Championship dynasty.   Jim Irsey: "the goal is to win three in a row." https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://coltswire.usatoday.com/2019/04/03/indianapolis-colts-jim-irsay-super-bowl-3-in-a-row/amp/&ved=2ahUKEwiw0pWomOHpAhVQm-AKHWscD_oQFjAMegQIAhAB&usg=AOvVaw2MyBiVLfpYEwTsiTSc_Vcx&ampcf=1&cshid=1591034273453   The NFL even changed rules favoring the offense. Can't jam beyond 5 yards, etc. I know that Peyton alone couldn't couldn't win it all, however, we are talking about Peyton freaking Manning here. Honestly, no excuse. The Miami Dolphins would've sold their stadium to get Peyton Manning with their defense and team which could only beat the Pats.
