Colts' greatest need after the draft?


Recommended Posts

Eason will be signed for several years.

We have a quarterback with a history of success. We don't have a defensive end opposite Houston.

I'm surprised how many people believe a backup offensive tackle who may never play is more important than an edge rusher.

INDY has 0 QBs signed after this season. 
 

QB is 1a through 1z.

Philip Rivers has said he wants to play for a maximum of two more years. There is no way he would play for a third team in three years. If he still has it and the Colts offer him another one year contract he'll play here again.

 

Chad Kelly becomes an Exclusive Rights Free Agent. He must sign a one year deal at the league minimum if offered by the Colts.

 

Jacob Eason was drafted in the fourth round and will sign a four year contract according the the rookie wage scale.

 

For all intents and purposes the Colts have three quarterbacks after this season.

 

Jacoby Brissett is the odd man out. He will become a Unrestricted Free Agent and will explore his options. He will find out what the Colts or another team believes he is worth.

QB.

 

it is the most important position in sports and we don't have one. Without top QB play we'll just win enough to get a #15 to 25 draft pick every year to trade away for multiple 2nd & 3rd round picks. A good team with no real shot at a super bowl is what we are and will continue to be. 

 

We have 2 average QBS making $40,000,000 combined, that's horrible and will haunt the future of this team. Plus what ever we sign that head case Eason to. So $45,000,000 +/- tied up in QB's who have no history of winning. 

 

Its a horrible cycle we've been on. Our good established top level players now will be on the down slide of their career when our current development players are good enough to contribute at a top level. 

 

We're averaging a super bowl win every 26 1/2 years so there cant be very many good arguments for this formula being very successful.  Unless Super Bowls are not our goal.

TE, OT, DL.

 

TE:  Looks good on the surface with Doyle, Burton, and MAC; but the first two are often dinged up.

 

OT:  Le'Raven Clark is okay as a backup, but we need at least a swing G/OT on the bench for in-game injury if Clark is starting.

 

DL:  I'm not a big fan of Autry or Sheard or Lewis.  After Buckner, I think we need a better option than either of those three (assuming Sheard and Lewis get reps inside during rush packages).  Windsor looks interesting.

A 39 year old, a UDFA with a record, and a 4th round flyer.  
 

As of right now with technically no QB signed past this season.  Our QB situation is the club’s biggest concern.

An experienced quarterback playing for a head coach, offensive coordinator and in a system in which he is familiar.

 

Incorrect, Chad Kelly was drafted by the Denver Broncos. His record has little to do with his ability to play football. I could fill an all-star team with players who have records.

 

A "flyer" who many thought possessed first round talent, so we'll see how he works out.

Sorry you are right Chad Kelley was the last pick in the draft I think.

We have to see how our young pass rushers do. You don't draft three DEs in two years for no reason.

I'd rather see how they do as second-teamers this year and then perhaps move up.

The reason for me is clear - trying to win a championship.

Honestly  can't  say qb until we see how Eason does or if kelly has improved.

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
