Andrew Luck comes back. Final answer.

Count me in the "it's way to early to tell" group.   As far as the options...  1) No to Darnold, or any other USC QB... ever. 2) No to Prescott. Good, but also surrounded by a ton

I voted for trading a 2nd or 3rd for Darnold.  I would not trade a high 2nd.  Let he and Eason compete, and the other can be a nice backup.  Its too early to go all in on a rookie, since the roster st

Sign Cam if he's available,  then move up in draft if possible and draft the very best qb you can. 

Cam would be #1 and the highly drafted rookie & Eason compete for #2.

So.....you want to go into a season with Cam, a rookie, and a 1 year clip board holder?

I think everybody should WANT Dak Prescott for $40 million a year. That would instantly fix our issue & make us super bowl contenders. Granted, he stays healthy. 
 

I like Eason, but there is clear bias from the Colts fan base for young, unproven QB's. 

Last year, many were praising Chad Kelley as the best QB on our roster. He had

never even threw a football in an regular season game. 
 

Eason was passed 3-4 times by every team in the NFL. He COULR potentially be a starter. But, not very many 4th round picks ever end up starting. If they do, they aren't very good. Tom Brady and Russell Wilson are 1/1000.

1) No to Darnold, or any other USC QB... ever.

2) No to Prescott. Good, but also surrounded by a ton of talent (OL, RB, WRs). Wouldn't be mad, but really don't want a long term high dollar contract. I'd be happier taking on Carr's last two years.

3) I'm fine with Eason if the coaches think he has what it takes. Not sure if Reich is the coach to bring any rook along though.

4) I'm fine with Rivers if he turns it around. Reich needs to help. 

5) I'd be fine if we went all in on a 1st rounder QB next draft, but honestly, I'd want either a new HC, or a new OC with a legit history to call plays to pair with the young QB.

Same here.

Not that I'm advocating for these guys but I'm curious if anyone thinks a Stafford or a Matt Ryan would be a good move if it somehow happened through trade or straight signing.

I don't know their contracts, just thinking I could MAYBE see those teams hitting the reset at QB.

I could see Lawrence obviously, Fields, and Lance all going top 5. If the Jets get the #1 pick do they give up on Darnold is the question?

That's the million dollar question maybe if we are lucky Lawrence will pull an Eli and say he wants to go to Indy

Matt Ryan crossed my mind before the season as well, I had Carr, Rivers, and Ryan on my radar.

I've seen several mocks already that have him going around 10-15. He's all over the place. Seen a few that have him going as early as 5, though all have Lawrence and Fields going before him.

 

Trask is also making a strong case to be in the coversation. Kid has had 90+ QBRs every game so far. 70+% completion, and 14 TDs with only 1 INT.

I'd take either.

But a QB is not the answer to either of those team's problems.

Well the Washington football team learned a hard lesson sunday that benching Haskins was not the answer to their offensive inconsistencies. In fact it blew up pretty spectacularly in their faces.

 

Haskins had 1 year starting in college then has played under 2 offensive coordinators in as many years on a team that has, if not the most dysfunctional management in football, is right there near the top. That said, I think after this season is done he'll be a broken prospect, like Rosen.

The bias in this case is due to excruciatingly obvious stale, retread, qb play that limits the play calling and makes the fan die a slow agonizing death every Sunday afternoon....

We're a thirsty fan base... We went from champagne QB taste to seltzer water...:)

If we lose to the Bengals this Sunday, start thinking about trading JB to accumulate some draft picks.  I'm sure there are some needy teams that need a QB.  That's why I think we need to throw Eason in there and see what he can do, have a 25M back up QB for Eason, after we get rid of a 20M back too....

You honestly think we would get a team to trade for Brissett? 

Why should they? If they are interested all they have to do is wait. He is going to be free agent at the end of the season.

Agreed. If Brissett was anyone's resolution to starting qb problems, he'd be starting here.

I like Lance a lot. Sir Lance A Lot lmao . He is going top 5 though. We will probably be picking in the 20 range.

If Dak wants 30M a year I’ll do it. Already paying 40M plus for Rivers and Brisset

The money for Rivers and Brissett ends after thus season.   Next year we will be close to paying our QB rookie minimum. 
What we’re paying THIS YEAR is meaningless NEXT YEAR.  
 

As for picking in the 20’s next year,  if you read the threads on this website that possibility just up and vanished this weekend.   According to the Sky Is Falling Crowd, next year we will be lucky if we’re picking 12-16.   
 

Apparently, we officially suck.  So much for the playoffs.   At least, that’s what I read here.   The biggest panic I’ve seen on this website since I joined in May of 2012.

Nobody will want his contract. Even if they pay only the non-guarantees, I don't see a team giving up anything to take it over. Maybe a later rounds pick, but that won't do much for us in terms of capital.

Do we even know if Dak will be ready to play next year.That was a pretty gruesome injury.

IMO Dak isn't going anywhere. Jerry Jones will resign him. Dak will get his money. 

Jones is already taking heat over not signing him. 

If we know anything Jones is a business man, and it would be bad business not to resign Dak.

He's supposed to be out 4-6 months, and back for spring conditioning. From what I read, no big concerns in terms of healing or being 100% again. 

 

Not sure it does anything to his contract situation either. Perhaps it makes him more eager to sign. Doubt it changes Jone's stance. He still can use a tag one more year.

Thanks for the update.I don't see him leaving Dallas.Whether he gets tagged or signs a new contract.I think Jones keeps him

    • I mean... everybody says that and right now maybe we are the best option for him, but would that be the same in 2 years time? Who knows...    About the pick compensation - yes, I would really hope Ballard doesn't go into a bidding war with other teams. Have a firm price set and don't go over it. 1st and 3d is about the max I would be willing to give for 33 year old Stafford. 
    • Stafford has been very public about his number one goal:   Winning.   (His words, not mine).   He’s not going to want to leave because we want to pay him $25m instead of $30+ million.   The Colts give Stafford the best chance of winning.   Period.  Leaving the Colts for a money grab would be the worst look possible for him.  I don’t see that as a worry.  Honestly.    My bigger concern is the cost in draft picks to acquire him.  There may be a bidding war, which could prove very expensive.   At some point, I could see Ballard dropping out.   We will likely know in the next 6 weeks. 
    • He is 33 and has 2 years left on reasonable contract. After that you will have to give him a contract in the realm of what other top QBs are getting now and he will be getting older... So you will either have to pay big or lose him and this is while all our young pieces are moving out of their rookie contracts... So we will start losing some of them. So IMO IF we get Stafford this will be the golden window to try to go all in...  Use Stafford's best remaining years at the best contract you will have him at, to try to surround him with best talent we can get while our young player are still cheap. Later he will be older/worse on worse contract and our young studs we either be paid much more (less money to get reinforcement elsewhere) or will be gone.    So... Go all in NOW. This doesn't mean you concede the later years, but IMO the best chance we have are the next 2 years if we get Stafford. This is legitimate Superbowl contender if we can get one of the top receivers, a very good pass-rusher and some solid CBs. 
    • Odds are you can’t do all that because the salary cap is going down roughly $15-20 million.    We’re likely going to need more time.   I don’t understand the 2-year window reference?   Stafford likely has 5+ years left.   With a GM like Ballard, our window should remain open longer than that.
