So do you think it's pretty much a given that Brissett won't be on the team next season? I believe this is the last year of his contract and I know he wants to be a starter somewhere. I just don't see the Colts resigning him. What say you?

You already said no one can tell you different, which means you won't listen to anyone else, but I'm going to say this anyway.   This is really dumb.    It's true that black QBs ge

Yes he even said it in 2018. He didn’t like him as well. 

And no way in hell JB overcomes a 21 hole the D put us in.

I agree that he will be elsewhere in 2021. The Colts have already exhibited that they do not feel he's the QB they want to move forward with. Eason will probably be the back-up and Rivers again the starter. Unless they sign Zach  Prescott , hard to imagine anything different than that ?

We love him here (coaches) but I think he will be gone unless he wants to sign for backup kind of money. He wants to start IMO, I don't blame him for wanting too as that is just being competitive. He has it made here :dunno:. To be a back up I would take 5 Mill a year and hold a clip board for the next 5 years, that is a huge paycut for him but still great for a backup. Come in when needed - win 1 or 2 games, that is me though haha .

I remember the 1/2 dozen folks who swore that Jim Caldwell would never coach in the NFL again. When brought to their attention later after he indeed did, it went to, he'll never coach a winning team again. Definitives rarely age well when emotion is involved. 

 

But to answer your question, yes, I believe he will start somewhere in the NFL. How long? I have no idea.

There is one scenario where he will be elsewhere. That is if rivers finished strong and comes back next year. Then Eason is his backup. Then Jacoby is gone.  If rivers doesn’t come back there could be a pretty good chance he comes back and him and Eason fight for the starting job.  Everything goes out the window though if the colts draft another QB. If they draft one high and rivers comes back then  all bets are off.  Next year really hinges on if rivers has a great season and comes back. Jacoby would be a good backup for Eason. Winston couldn’t even get a job.

There are quite a few Lion fans who want Caldwell back and thought he shouldn't have been fired. 

IMO the Jets should have hired him as well.

If Jacoby is "competing for the starting job" next year for the Colts, then the org is leaning out over the abyss or tanking for 2022.

I'm trying to figure out who would want him as a starter.  Maybe the Jets or WFT if they draft their future QB and want Jacoby to do a Fitz for them.  Who else?

 

There are a lot of journeymen QBs who could fill that role.

I think that'll probably be the role JB will see in the future. The journeyman QB that teams will bring in to be a bridge QB or just a backup. He'll probably get starting gigs, but they won't be with intent of him being the long-term answer.

If Eason is ready to be the back up I'd try to trade him now, like to the Cowboys for a 3rd.

 

I think they'd jump on a 3rd if they could get it.  But I'm not sure the Boys could afford a backup at his rate.

 

Plus, we're still in win now mode (for now) so they'll want to keep him as insurance.

No way any team will acquire Brissett with thoughts of him being their starter. He may hookup somewhere as a 2nd/3rd stringer and inherit the starting job due to injury. But that would only be temporary until the starter came back or until season ends.

Only team I could think of would potentially be New England if Cam and the Patriots don't turn it around and if Belichick comes back.  The only reason I say that is because Jacoby is a disciplined player who doesn't turn the ball over much and he has familiarity with NE.  I think Belichick could win with him being basically a game manager, and if NE drafts a QB who they want to develop, I could see Jacoby making sense for them as a short-term solution.

Highly doubt we could trade Jacoby for a 3rd.  I don't think he's any better than Dalton, anyway.

I think they would do that only to make Eason fight for it and not be handed the job? They would say it’s a competition but it really isn’t.

Dak Prescott is my dream scenario for our QB of the future. After watching what the cowboys are without him, I am convinced he was being held back by an unfathomably inept organization. If we can't get him after this year, hopefully we get him the year after.

I honestly believe he will be a starter in this league. 2017 he had no team around him. It was like his rookie season. Last season the numbers before the injury are there. Some of you really downplay him. At the end of the season he couldn’t stop into his throws. He was playing through that injury. Didn’t quit on the team like someone else we know. That person was also afraid of losing their job to him. He has talent, but needs a team around him. He was also in the talks for MVP before he got injured.

What Dak are you watching? He is one of the most inaccurate QB in the league. Watching the Cowboys with him this season was the reason they were behind. It was also a collective effort from there defense as well. My brothers are Cowboys fans. Also weren’t you paying attention to anything Jerry Jones said about him? Even Jerry knows he isn’t accurate. Can’t reset and throw after escaping the pocket. He doesn’t have the downfield eye vision for it. Me personally I’ll pass hard on Dak. My * he was being held back lol

Just to make sure I'm clear, you're saying that Luck was afraid of losing the starting QB job to Brissett?

I would add that many thought McDaniels would never be a head coach candidate again after his flip flop here

The Cowboys will not give up a 3rd and his Brissetts contract.

If they are interested all they have to do is wait.

Maybe the Cowboys would trade Michael Gallup for him.  That way they keep their draft pick and get a starting QB and we get a starting WR.  A win win I would think.

They would only owe him in the $8m range.

 

Most likely less because that would of been full 16 games, since we are 6 games in that number would probably be cut in half almost.

 

We are on the hook for the majority of his contract.

 

Jerry isnt happy, Brissett IMO gives them a better chance to be decent this year.

looks like they would owe him about $5.5m for rest of season.

I think Ballard makes a move for a qb in the draft.  It's time, the roster is deep and young enough to allow it. The head coach is settled in, Luck's retirement is no longer "shocking".  All of the surprises he's endured are in the rear view mirror.

 

Selecting "his qb" is the only thing left for him to do.  It will simultaneously define his tenure as the colts gm and determine the length said tenure.

 

I believe he gets one shot at it and it will buy him a minimum of 3 more years in the gm seat.  If The kid doesn't develop it'll be time for a new era in Indy.

 

Eason could be his shot btw, in which case he should be starting next year.  I dont think Rivers returns and another retread is just treading water.

Dear God, this thread is a complete dumpster fire.    When it’s comes to JB people here lose their minds.

 

Hard to see him getting traded.  The Colts still need him. 

 

Hard to see him signed by another team next year to be their starter.   Andy Dalton didn’t get signed as a starter and AD is a better option than JB.   Cam Newton had to wait until nearly training camp to get a pitiful offer. 

 

Whether he stays or leaves, I see JB signing with some team to be their back up.   A GM can’t stand up before the local media and announce the team’s new starting quarterback is Jacoby Brissett.   That will never happen.   He may get an opportunity because the starter gets hurt, but that’s totally different than being signed as the starter.   Come on now, people.....

Can't see any team coming after him as a starter. He's not a top 20 guy. And if you don't have a top 20 guy, you're trying to figure out how to get a top 20 guy.

 

He could certainly end up competing at some places due to injury, or as a bridge, but I just can't see any GM trying to sell JB as a franchise QB to a fan base. 

 

And I can't see any team giving up anything substantial for a trade right now.

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
