Is Stafford a long term answer... like 12 years, he isnt..... we agree
Is Stafford an upgrade over Philip River this past year? I think so.
We came very close to beating one of the final four teams , in their house.
Philip Rivers was an important cog in our wheel to go 11-5
If Stafford is the SAME with the ability to extend plays, for the next 4-5 years....... We should take him
Its worth a one and a 2nd or 3rd next year
Remember Rivers put up very good numbers with an excellent OL
Stafford put up very good numbers with a horrible OL - 37 sacks and MANY more hits
Rivers was sacked just 17 times, and wasnt hit often
Imagine what Stafford could do with a real OL
Approximately 70-75% of 1st round QBs dont pan out to their draft position over the past 9 years
Stafford is a choice that is LEAST risky for the Colts IMHO
I have read where she is very close to him. It happens when you are the owner and know someone and his family for 12 years and he's the face of your franchise. I don't think she will let her new people do him a wrong just to squeeze out another pick. I don't think he will go anywhere unless he agrees to go there. I would bet that is what the two sides greed too.
