Jacoby is better than Dalton, I never want to see Dalton in a Colts jersey not even as a back-up

The Colts are going to be linked to any QB out there because they have money and assists and need a QB.

Almost like there are a bunch of individuals with varied opinions... strange.

I hope it's accurate.    I'd prefer Dalton to Rivers.

 

Peter King has matched Dalton with the Patriots should Brady move on.   If that's the case,  if Dalton is acceptable to the Pats,  he should be acceptable to the Colts.

I have never been a fan of Dalton and always thought he was just average, above average some years but then again part of his play could have been due to him playing in Cincy. Much like Tannehill playing in Miami but Tannehill was better with Tennessee last season.

Exactly. Just because the Colts have a lot of cap room the media has tried to connect any QB to the Colts. 

That and just about every free agent too. 

With Ballard saying he thinks this locker room is ready for a big market free agent does not mean a high dollar player will be coming to the Colts. 

IMO Ballard will still be frugal in signing any player.

Not sure I can say that Dalton has ever been better than Rivers.  Curious preference you have there.

Exactly. If one paid attention to the rumors, Brady, Carr, Rivers and Dalton are all headed to Indy.

Thats the starting point

 

He wouldn’t be the answer long term but I also would like him better than Rivers

 

Maybe a 4th or 5th ?
 

Never mind.

Career-wise,  Rivers is far superior to Dalton.     I'm just not sure the same could be said about 2020?     I'm not expecting a bounce-back for Rivers.  I think it's possible,  but I'm not sure how likely that would be.    But I think Dalton might respond to a better situation here in Indy.   

 

I get that Dalton is not a sexy candidate.    But neither was Tannehill and look what happened there.    I'm hoping Dalton might do similar for the Colts.

Ad has had a couple of pretty good seasons, Rivers had a lot more.  PR was better last year too

I would prefer Rivers but because of his age I have my doubts like you if he can be 35 year old Phillip Rivers anymore. With our O.Line he should be good but the doubt is there.

Dalton at his best is about what JB was in games 1 thru 7 last year...Dalton is not the player Ballard will part with JB for.

 

Yes we need the QB of the future...but change for the sake of change is not what we should expect

A Dalton led Bengals team had the Steelers beat and were headed to a Super Bowl if the 2 biggest knuckleheads in NFL history hadn’t made bad decisions. Burfict and PAC ‘man Jones.

Like most are saying, Dalton is better than JB but I would still pass. They occupy the same level at the mediocre tier. Dalton does not offer enough of an upgrade to warrant trading draft picks.

Wow, so many options Ballard could go. I would like to hear the behind the scenes meetings with our FO. Who is pounding the table for who? I’ve heard Siriani is for Rivers because of their time together but that could be bogus as well.

Dalton and rivers are superior to Brissett 

I’m not to sure about that. Jacoby won more games than the other 2 combined last season. I’m not saying Jacoby is the answer but neither are the other 2

They were both on worse teams with bad olines

That would be awesome to be a part of.

Could you imagine if there was a raffle and they allowed one of “us” in to give our “expert” views.

I wouldn't be too excited about Dalton.   He only completed over 65% of his passes one season.  He's completed less than 60% 3 seasons.  It'd be an improvement over Brissett, but not too much.

He would be a great pick up.  I think he is capable of hitting open receivers.

Every NFL qb should be able to do that.

I know, that's why just about any NFL caliber qb would be an upgrade over JB.

I could see it.  Dalton is at least a  better option than Rivers in my mind.  He's a solid blue collar QB who has obvious ability but has struggled in the last few years with a terrible organization.  Put him on a team that knows what he's doing and he's got every chance to be productive.

 

As a guy who's definitely in the Brissett camp. give me a guy like Dalton, who definitely deserves another chance, with Brissett as the backup, and I think you could go to war that way.

    • So 2 of their starting WRs are out, and one of the number 2s is questionable.  They are basically down to one healthy starter (Hoagan), a questionable depth guy, and one healthy depth guy. Josh Malone has been signed to the active roster.   Starting RT is out, starting C is questionable.    Gotta feel sorry for Darnold. Not really. Hope we crush him lol.    
    • I agree with the WR statement, not necessarily a high first round pick  Then again, Pittman isn't really a take-the-top-off the defense type of WR like TY is, and Ballard spent a very high second on him.    Reich's offense is supposed to be about disbursing the ball around with plays schemed to assist non-stud pass catchers, more so than the offense we used to have.  But any NFL offense needs playmakers who can do something with the ball once they get it.     Having mid level talented skilled position players is sort of what we've had, and the lack of individual playmaking puts too much pressure on the QB and play caller executing the correct play.  Coaches benefit from having a player who can make two moves and go 60 yards by themselves, and they tend to not be found in mid to late rounds.   Also agreed about CB.  The zone scheme doesn't need a shut down corner like VD.  The scheme does need a 3 tech on the dline, and a better pass rush, so its nice to see the investment of pick 13 into a position that matters with the Buckner acquisition.   Personally, I think the pass rush can be done by committee.  Even great players get gassed.  But there should be one DE along with Buckner that the defense has to account for when he's in the game.  I think that player requires a first round investment.   I've always been less enthused about the need for a stud TE.  I think the plamaking pass catchers should be the WRs and versatile RBs, but to get the kind of TEs the NFL seems to want, I think its going to take a pretty high pick.   And then there is AC's retirement looming.  Always need a 1st rounder for a LT if you want him to start as a rookie, unless dumb luck lets one drop out of tree.
    • I really don't give 2 sheets about Ebron, but it's still all speculation. We don't know what the argument was.   But as I've said before, going from a guy who was our primary red zone target, to only getting 3 targets inside the 10 in 11 games in 2019 is pretty WTH, especially given our problems on O. And aside from his 3 drops in the Oakland game, he was pretty good (0 drops in the Pitt game and 3 games leading up to it) afterwards.    IMO, the writing was on the wall in terms of him not being extended. I don't blame him for going and getting his body taken care of if he knows he's not coming back. It's business.   At Pitt so far, he's got 4 catches for 61 yards, and 3 of those are for 1st downs. He's also had 2 drops.    
    • We need to worry about ourselves in this game. Players need to be smart and focused. No turnovers, no foolish mistakes. If we do that then we’ll be fine. But if we start turning over the ball in our own territory, then it’ll be a long afternoon.    We better be mentally prepared...
