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.

    • Nail biter for several reasons. Pre-game beers may be needed for the nerves.
    • If I had to guess, Rivers will be back on the books.
    • Typically to be a HOFer you have to be dominant for ~a decade.  Leonard and Q are ~2.5 years into their careers (about a quarter of the way there).  Leonard has not played 16 games in a season yet, which is somewhat concerning to me.  This year, while he and Q both look very good, I don't think either is deserving of an all-pro award.     So yes, very impressive that Q has been 1st team all-pro 2x and Leonard has a 1st and 2nd team all-pro under his belt.  That is very rare (Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus are the only other 2 teammates who made 1st team all-pro as rookies).  In no way am I knocking Q or Leonard, they're both critical pieces to this team and at the elite level in the NFL at their respective positions.  Labeling them as HOFers this early into their career is a bit of a stretch, though -- let's give them another 3.5-4 years to see if they're still healthy and performing at an all-pro level.  They're certainly off to a good start, but there are a lot of players who have made 2 all-pro teams in their career and are not HOFers (heck, LeRoy Butler was a 4x 1st-team all-pro and has been eligible for HOF induction for ~15 years and isn't in, Steve Wisniewski was 2x 1st team, 6x 2nd team and not in, etc.).  Also, the vast majority of HOFers were not first team all-pro as rookies.  These 2020 rookies are in perhaps the strangest year of the modern era, with limited training camps, no pre-season games, missing games due to COVID (see Taylor), etc.... Pittman, Taylor, Blackmon have all shown flashes of excellence and all have had their own obstacles on top of a weird off-season as rookies (Blackmon coming off injury getting thrown into starting line-up due to HOoker going down, Taylor having Mack go down and now missing a game on the COVID list, and Pittman with compartment syndrome).   No reason to expect any of them to be HOFers, but also no reason why if they stay healthy and continue improving that we don't start talking about them being at the HOF level in 4-5 more years.     In all honesty, it is way too early to tell if this class will stack up to the 2018 class.  We really won't know for another 4-5 years when we see which guys from the 2018 draft are given/not given contract extensions and when the current class is at the same point.      As far as just judging by rookie season alone, it's not unreasonable to think it won't be another >30 years before we see rookie teammates on the first team all-pro squad together (believe Butkus and Sayers was 1965).  That said, aside from Q and Leonard we got solid contributions from Smith and Hines on O, saw solid ST contributions from Franklin and Adams (with Franklin playing a minimal D role as a fill-in starter 2 games and Adams basically invisible on D), got very little from Turay and Lewis and basically nothing from Fountain, Cain.  Wilkins was OK as a 3rd RB and OK as a kick returner and our only UDFA who did anything noteworthy wad Odum as a solid STer and with a couple decent starts when he was needed due to injury.   Overall we had 4 of 11 picks (or 4 of 12 rookies who contributed) who really didn't do much as rookies (33% vs. 66% percent who contributed significantly in some aspect of the game).     So in short, the 2018 class as rookies had 2 studs (Q and Leonard), 2 guys who contributed solidly on O (Hines and Smith), 4 solid ST contributors (Odum, Adams, Franklin, Wilkins), 4 guys who really did nothing (Turay, Lewis, Cain, Fountain).   Three years later, we still have 2 studs (Q and Leonard), 1 very solid RT (Smith),  2 guys who are doing well in a RB rotation (Hines and Wilkins), 2 unknowns on the DL (Lewis and Turay - by far Lewis' best year, but he hasn't really been great), and 3 solid STers (Odum, Franklin, Adams and 4 if you count Hines).   Then we have Cain (gone) and Fountain (still pretty much doing nothing).  Again, about 2/3 of these guys are still contributing solidly in some way on the team, with the other 1/3 still unknown or not doing much (Turay started to come on last year and Lewis is recently coming on this year, so if they both continue, we may see 83% of that class as solid contributors moving forward).     The 2020 class as rookies -- we have 1 borderline stud (Blackmon), 2 very solid  O contributors (Taylor and Pittman), 3 very solid ST contributors (Rodgers, Glasgow, Blankenship), 1 guy who has been OK in a pinch as a backup or extra lineman (Pinter), 1 guy who has made the active roster after mostly being on the PS (Windsor - IMO, he's about as valuable to this year's team as Lewis was at the same point in 2018), 1 guy who has been very solid the past few weeks (Harris) and 2 guys (Eason and Patmon) who have been on the roster but inactive.  That puts us at 7 or 8 guys who have been solid contributors out of 11 as rookies (63% or 72%) and 3 or 4 guys (Eason, Patmon, Windsor, maybe Pinter) for a total of 27-36% of rookies who are not doing much at this point of the season (this could change moving forward if Pinter has to fill in for Kelly for a while and/or if Windsor takes on a bigger role down the stretch, it is not coincidence to me that he was activated the week we cut Day).  So right now, we're looking at 30-40% of our rookies not producing too much, but this could change to 20% (assuming Eason and Patmon don't play this year and Pinter and Windsor see increasing roles).     Overall, Ballard is >60% in both drafts in terms of having productive players as rookies.  It is very unlikely we'll see any team have 2 first team all-pros as rookies again in the near future (or ever).  We may see a DROY from the 2020 draft class like we saw in the 2018 draft class on this team.  Both Leonard and Blackmon have been criticized for being picked too early, etc... Ballard has proven those doubters wrong.     When we look back in a few years, if Eason is a franchise QB and Pittman and Patmon are a solid WR duo (perhaps Harris is still performing well), Taylor is a bellcow >1,200 yard rusher, Blackmon is an all-pro, Pinter is a starter (RG or RT), Rodgers is giving us a TD or more per year as a return guy, Glasgow is a solid STer, Hot Rod is a probowl K, and Windsor is still in the DL rotation and this draft could be better than the 2018 draft.  Again, too early to tell.  If we want to consider Buckner a part of the 2020 draft (the 13th pick), I think there's a good argument that the 2020 draft will exceed the 2018 draft.   Also, something to keep in mind -- our team was in very bad shape when Ballard took over.  In 2017, he was drafting for a team with a coach we pretty much all knew was going to be gone in a year.  In 2018, it was a lot easier to get significant playing time on the roster (at least IMO) because it was so bad.  In a short time, Ballard has put a lot of solid pieces together and this team is a much more difficult team to make the final roster, let alone get significant playing time as a rookie.     I agree with you on your Blackmon assessment.  It'd be cool if he got DROY... and he has made several key plays at critical times (e.g., forced fumble in OT last week)... but he's not perfect.  TBH, I think it was kind of disappointing that the long ball from Rodgers to MVS was not broken up near the end of the 4th quarter.  Blackmon was a step or two behind, but I think most very high end safeties would have broken that play up.     McDaniels dissing Ballard may have actually made Ballard's job easier.  I think Reich was the right guy for this team and after seeing Patricia fired from DET, and looking at stats of Belichick's coordinators who went on to head coaching jobs, they have a pretty poor track record.     Yes, I think Q and Leonard's play has been solid this year, but I don't think either of them deserve to be all-pros (at least not 1st team).  Won't be shocked if Q gets selected though, mainly because of his name and the fact Baldy and other reporters like to really focus on his positive plays.  He's been beaten more this year than I can remember (which is still not a lot) and has more holds than I remember in his first 2 years.     Agree, the most deserving of all-pro on this roster is Buckner (though, I can't see him getting the nod due to lack of stats and the fact that Donald and other interior DL in the league are playing at very high levels).  Second most deserving, IMO, is Hot Rod -- he's likely to be leading the league in points scored after tomorrow's game.  Just hit a big game winner.  Has a solid chance of ending the season >90% FG made and leading the league in points scored -- it'd be hard to vote against him for at least 2nd team K if he finishes the year >90% FG made and leads league in points.
