Using speed only as a reason to go after QB is very misleading.

 

What is Jones career numbers passing wise?

I dont know??? I know I've watched about 5 games last few years and I see a major talent..He can throw too, Ill say it again he reminds me of Steve Young..He is stuck in a bad situation, but dude has everything talent wise to be elite...He needs a good situation, but he has every tool..

I'm gonna need a lot more than the kids fast to give up 1st rounder.

He can make every throw ..Most of his problems are due to a crap team and coaches...

Apparently not every throw. 

 

He currently ranks 3rd for most INT and 26th in completion percentage. 

 

Do more research before you speak

I spit out my drink..You obviously havent watched Giants..He has one of worst olines in NFL and no talent other than Barkley who is out for a year and will never be the same...As well crap coaching and management..Unlike NBA, NFL is a true team sport..Mahommes would struggle on Giants..

Honestly, I like Jones, but he is not going to be the answer for this team in the future. I think he is better than he is showing on the Giants, but I don't see him as an upgrade over the Colts QB room. 

 

His mental clock betrays him a lot, you don't fumble so many times if you listened to it enough. Just saying. :2c:

 

He uses his legs better obviously than any Colts QB but fumbles and relying on your legs are not a recipe for winning football. He does throw an accurate ball but the same knock on Eason vs pressure might end up being the knock on him as well. So why not at least give Eason a chance?

Thats why Colts are being careful with Eason..Giants threw Jones to Wolves too soon..It can ruin a player..My point is he has the natural stuff you can't coach..He just needs a good coach and talent around him..

Luck had one of the worst lines in the NFL for years but his numbers weren't at the bottom.

 

You can blame the line and the coaches all you want but elite players make plays regardless of the talent around them.

 

Its what makes them elite !

They kind of had too throw him in. Who else would be their starter?

He isnt yet..He has to grow and learn..He has all the physical talent in world if handled correctly he can be elite in a few years..He isn't Rosen, he is more Tannehill..For perspective

We have pro bowlers and 2nd round picks..Idk..Id take our wr over Giants all day plus we have a great line..

The line is better certainly!

 

The point is great players play great regardless of talent around them. 

 

You brought up Mahomes

Before he showed Chiefs were one and done every few years.

 

He is a great QB! Jones is not!

Im not against that..Unfortunately none of us have seen Eason perform in a real NFL game..So speculation on him is irrelevant at this time..We can hope all we want..Im glad they are redshirting him though..Maybe we hit lottery, or maybe he fell to 4th, and we passed on him twice till 4th round was for a reason..

    • Wouldnt be the first time weve played with young and rookie edge rushers. Just sit back and see what Ballard does. Im sure theyve thought this through. Theres more good edge rush candidates in this draft that fit our scheme than you think. Could be better but its not horrible. I think our O may do enough this year to aid the young D.
    • I've been watching some more players lately and I have new favorites... In this mock - Benjamin St-Juste, Josh Palmer, Derrick Barnes. St-Juste and Derrick Barnes fit Ballard's mold to a tee. Especially St-Juste. Go watch him, guys. LONG(32" arms), good fluid athlete(really nice change of direction), physical in the run game, great zone instincts... Senior Bowl standout.    Derrick Barnes is a long(33 3/8" arms), athletic LB who is raw and honestly... not all that good when it comes to reading the game, but might develop well in our system where you are not required to make complex reads, but rather just see, chase and tackle. Potential depth replacement for the class that's graduating from their rookie contracts(Franklin, Adams...)
    • Picture it   The year is 2167 (notice im using same year) your new mission is doozy. you must call nick harper about a secret team meeting make sure he has zero communication between him and his wife.    He runs it back and we win SB against Seahawks 
    • '95 AFC Championship - Bailey catches hail mary '05 Playoffs - Nick Harper doesn't get stabbed in the leg by his wife and takes the fumble to the house.
    • Edit to add, I think the rule is 2 passes attempted from behind the line of scrimmage AND completed. Obviously, if its passed the LOS, it's a penalty, or if it's incomplete, it's dead. End edit.    The 2 forward pass was because of something Tom Brady did last year. A pass was thrown, batted back to Brady, and Thrown again for a gain of 8. It was 3rd and 10.  It was an illegal forward pass. 5 yard penalty, repeat the down. 3rd and 15.  Or decline and it's 4th and 2. Either way, the Offense gets another opportunity with 4th and short or 3rd and long.    The rule is like intentional grounding. Loss of down and yards.    link to the play referenced
