Qb for next year/QB class of 2021 (merge)

Yes.  I think people think it would be easy to find the next Manning or Luck.  The Colts got those 2 by having the top pick in 2 years where there was low risk of missing on the QB.  That is almost never the case when you are drafting outside the top 5.  It would cost the Colts too much draft capital for them to do that.   Look at what the Jets gave us to move up 3 spots and draft Darnold.  Now they may be entering their 4th year with him.   They gave up lots of draft picks and 3 seasons taking that risk.   I'd rather bring in Stafford and take what you know you will get.  

draft pick qbs are a crapshoot, luck was ranked #1 in the draft, wilson turned out to be better

I love how good people are at reaching conclusions, based on absolutely no information at all.    First, we were definitely getting Stafford. Now, we're definitely not. (And we will definite

Stafford was always my #1 choice among veteran options. (He was my preferred choice last offseason, someone posted a poll and I picked him.)   I'M ALL IN ON STAFFORD YALL.

Don't complete dismiss the draft. Nailing a QB in draft can completely change your team's history. Chiefs wouldn't sniff SB without PM.

Read this thread. Looks like Stafford will be going to SF and colts will be left with a bunch of leftover garbage. Lynch has been seen with the lions staff all day at the senior bowl. I think I am going to be sick.

I wouldn't let it bug you yet, but I'm not going to tell you that the little warning bell is wrong.

I’m usually pretty positive, and I’ll lead off with the fact that Ballard has built a great roster with later picks.

 

At some point though, it doesn’t matter that you have a perennial All-Pro guard, a perennial Pro Bowl LB, and a perennial All-Pro DT.

 

None of those pieces matter if you don’t have a QB.  It’s time to do something about that and get out of QB limbo, which we’ve been stuck in for the past 3-4 years.

There's plenty of offseason left even if they miss out on Stafford. @Chloe6124just seems so defeated. 

I am sick of bandaids. Now you have people saying go get Ryan lol. How does that advance the future. All it does is waste another 2 to 3 years.

Said it before and will again 

 

The best option from where we will be drafting might end up being Mac Jones

The offseason is long, there's only 2 names in FA class I trust. Rookie QB's don't do it for me. I see bust 95% of the time, so if we're not getting Lawrence and we're not, the odds that we're picking a guy worthy of leading a SB contending roster isn't good. 

And I don't want to see Jacoby again. 

 

 

And yeah. Ballard should pony up the picks if it's a 1 and a 2.

I'd rather give one of the rookies a shot cause the FA class is hot garbage

I would pick OT, DE, CB and maybe WR at #21 before I would draft Jones

 

oh well: at least the '22 draft will have Howell, Rattler, Slough and Slovis....

It's highly probable that we're getting hot garbage then, because Ballard isn't giving the starting job to a rookie unless something has gone wrong. It's not his style. Listen to Irsay's expectations for the roster. 

 

Now you see why Chloe is uptight all of the sudden!

If SF gets him for a second a future first that would really irritate me. That shouldn’t be hard to match. 

 

 

Yeah we can match that easily. Only thing I can think of if Ballard doesn't give up our 21st pick is that Ballard just has something else in mind.

I would rather give Eason a shot then porn star Jimmy or Matt Ryan. Bring Jacoby back to back h up then.

 

 

We'd get a similar season with Ryan as we did Rivers.

Don't underestimate Ballard. He will get a rookie if it comes down to it.

Every option outside of Stafford is a dumb bandaid. Nothing to look forward too and there is no way we don’t take a step back. I really hate Luck for what he did.

We aren’t getting Fields or Wilson and Ballard isn’t taking Jones.

This I agree with, Ryan would have the Line here to do some damage. The Falcons were a mess last year. Ryan has a good resume with an MVP and a SB appearance.

The Luck hate needs to stop.

He chose his health and family over football 

 

Nothing wrong with that

I was watching PTI earlier and Tony K said Andrew Luck might comeback, he just said it is possible.

I hope Luck comes out to DMX up in here in the season opener 

I have been hearing all sorts of things, I doubt he does but I wouldn't rule it out. He's still only 31 and probably feels great. Maybe he misses the game but then again maybe he doesn't. Most football players miss the game once they have been out for a year or 2. It is in their blood.

There is nothing you can say to convince me to be depressed. This season hasn't even ended completely and some of you are already calling it quit on 21' season.

Ok. But don't wrap me up in this.

 

I just said the Colts would have a similar season with Matt Ryan as they just did with Phil Rivers. That's 11 wins or so.

This was such a fun season. A season we all needed as a distraction from the real world. It really sucks we are probably going to go backwards.  

I have to be honest, this season was a joy compared to 2019. Hated to see it end because we even had the Bills on the ropes.

Spotrac has the odds now at even for the 49'ers.  For the life of me I can't believe Ballard is going to sit there and let this happen.  The only way I can see this happening is if Luck is coming back.  Stafford is clearly the missing piece that makes the most sense out of the alternatives that we know of.  If we lose Stafford Ballard really needs to pull a rabbit out of the hat to save face and to give us a real chance to win a SB.  We made the playoffs with Rivers and outplayed the Bills.  Expectations have now been set.  He really needs to hit on the QB this offseason.  Losing out on Stafford will make it much harder for him to deliver.  Hopefully we will know the Stafford decision soon.

It is still early, if we don't get Stafford or Watson then yeah time to panic. Even Matt Ryan wouldn't be bad for a couple of years, I think he would get us to the playoffs. Outside of that, I want no part of Wentz, Darnold, Dalton, or even Goff - I just don't feel a good vibe with any of those guys. Dak will get franchised by Dallas IMO and the chances of getting Rodgers are 1% IMO lol.

Especially if the niners don’t have to give up that 12th pick. How could he let that happen.

Chloe is uptight today because it’s Thursday.  It’s the same with the other six days.   She doesn’t need a good reason.

Maybe, just maybe... Stafford prefers the Bay Area to Indianapolis. Or maybe Ballard prefers someone else to Stafford. I mean, just because fans and media are stoked on someone doesn’t always translate to our front office. I dunno. What I would take from this, if anything, is that of course CB could match/beat the offer... IF he wanted to.

I don’t want someone who is just going to get us to the playoffs. I want someone that can take us to the SB or at least one of the rookies who is highly sought out.  I would be ok drafting up for Fields or Wilson. At least then we know who the future is. I am not ok with more Bandaids.

    • Didn't realize you already posted this, but here is my response to this mock draft by Mel...   This draft is more along the lines of where I have these players valued. The only thing that would make this mock better is if Indy were able to trade down to the end of the 1st and still get DE Jaelan Phillips while also adding draft capital. I would only be on board of course if he checks out medically and our front office believes he can have a long career.    Secondly, I have never fully bought that Samuel Cosmi is worth our 21st overall pick. I value him more as a 2nd round OT, so getting him with the 54th overall pick would be my ideal scenario. 
    • Why don't you love Phillips? I think he's great. I absolutely love his tape(and he tested and measured great too... he pretty much has it all... except clean medical record). IMO he's a top 10 player in the draft if you remove the worry about his concussions. 
    • Oh damn... sorry... I posted the same thing...    I absolutely love that mock for the Colts, if Ballard and his medical staff think Phillips will be OK. I don't think you can hope to get much better than this.

    • Meh, I honestly can’t get excited a bout any DE/Edge prospects in RD #1.  I’d rather go with a CB, if someone like J. Horn falls to 21 and land a OT in RD #2.    I think the Colts would be wise, to go with the highest rated OT at 21, and CB at 54.    Ballard says he doesn’t force things, so don’t force a pick at 21 to try and fix the pass rush.
