We’ll have to see what Eason has at some point and if he’s nothing special, we’ll have to start scouting the top 3 premier QBs in this next coming draft.

I agree. I think Rivers was just a name to try to see season tix which is ironic given there are no fans this season. Time to go back into the QB pool and try to find THE guy.

Rivers played like how I expected. Efficient with a few bone head plays mixed in between. He wasn't the reason we lost. We lost because our O line didn't run block as good as advertised and our Defens

A few thoughts.   1.  The defense was and still is hot garbage.  Gardner Mishew had one incompletion all day.   Let that sink it for a bit.  BTW this is not something new (remember the Saint

Rivers was Rivers. Expected more against a Jags defense that has lost their playmakers.   But what was that defense? All that talent, and they let the lowly Jags do whatever they wanted?

I don't think that was it at all.   I think it was because they thought the team was ready to win now and Rivers was better than Brissett and also had experience in the Reich system.

I believe Brees set some kind of record last year going 30 for 31 against our defense.  And now Minshew goes something like 19 for 20.  Minshew of all guys.  What gives with this defense.  Some changeover in personnel and similar result.  Our scheme and players are not getting the job done.  Pretty pathetic start for the defense.  How can you not be worried when we start facing better QB's and better teams.  First game but Still......

That is head in the clouds if they thought that. The team is no where near championship level.

Or what about "Camp MVP" Tyquan Lewis? He and Banogu combined for ONE tackle. 

Lewis only got ten snaps and Ben 7. When so we start giving them more snaps to see what they can do. It’s looking like Banogu was way over drafted.

IMO, the most surprising thing was the lack of pass rush or any type of pressure at all from the DL. That was supposed to be our biggest strength. 

It was surprising.   Not sure it was supposed to be our biggest strength.   Maybe you meant to say biggest improvement.

Let me see if I understand this. We upgrade our qb, upgrade our runningbacks(though losing Mack now hurts), upgrade our defensive line and secondary. And we still lose to the Jags?????????????? The more things change the more they stay the same. Life in the nfl I guess.

    • The Colts will have an easier time prying Watson out of Houston than the top pick from the Jags.  
    • Way too early to know.      I mean I could say I want a free agent but we don’t know whose going to be available or what the price tag would be.  With the draft they haven’t had to the combine or whatever the Combine will be this year to really give you an idea of where guys will be drafted.     just too many variables.     what I do know is that Ballard will address it.  So for now that’s good enough for me.
    • I don’t get the rage from the OP.  I don’t think anyone thinks if the Colts bring Jacoby back he’s going to be the long term answer at QB.  At most he’d be a bridge starter to a rookie but even that is unlikely.  If he’s brought back it would be as the back up QB.  It’s also not going to be close to the money he made before.  I also got the impression from Ballard’s presser it seemed like while he likes Jacoby he seemed to be saying it’s unlikely he would be back.   So I guess I don’t think there is much to worry about on this front.  
    • Just to give you an idea of how draft trades work when the Redskins moved up nine spots to pick 26 at the end of the first round it cost them two second rounders.  A first and second aren’t going to get you up high enough to take a QB unless someone majorly slips and if that happens you have to wonder why they are falling that far.  Yes Rodgers slipped but so Johnny Football and Brady Quinn and guys who have careers that turn out like that are far more common for QBs who slip that far in the first round than a guy like Rodgers.  They slip because teams don’t think he’s the guy.     Now with that said I do think that’s what Ballard was talking about when he said it takes a little luck.  He knows for them to get a QB early in the draft someone he really likes is going to have to slip some.  So I wouldn’t rule out him going up to get someone if they slip bit picking at 21 your talking mid first round at the earliest for a first and second.  They aren’t going to jump into the top ten for that.     the closet I can find to that kind of move is the Jets going up 12 picks from 17 to 5 to get Sanchez and it cost them a first, a second, and three players.  Point being it didn’t come cheap and 1st and 2nd alone isn’t going to get you where you want to be to get a stud QB when your picking 21 in all likely hood.
