Should the Colts have contracted with Brady instead of Rivers?


Recommended Posts

Rumor has it Brady's had interest in indy. The colts were not interested.

 

Speculation by Peter King was that the colts were interested in a shorter deal than Brady wanted

 

Truth is I'm not really sure, but with the Bucs making the NFC championship, it's an interesting question.

The only mistake the Colts made with Brady is not drafting him in the 5th round in 2000 to back up Manning. 

Indy his first choice? Seems kinda doubtful that’s true... 

If the Colts defense forced 4 turnovers in the playoff game or stopped playing Jekyll and Hyde throughout the year, we might have been just as good as the Bucs in terms of results.

Hopefully we don't make the mistake of resigning Rivers.

Defense did their job. They got a big sack and forced the Bills out of FG range. Offense didn't get the job done.

Very interesting. I mean, the eyeball test of course says Brady is doing a lot better in performance... 

 

Definitely has a stronger arm at this point in the game compared to Rivers.

I look forward to your noodle arm 2.0 thread 

 

I'm not for nor against signing Rivers back. I just think we can spend the 20+ elsewhere, but the question then becomes do you roll with Eason, do you trade for a vet QB like Carr, Ryan, or Stafford, or do you trade up for say Trey Lance

I would be fine going into 21 with this

 

Rivers Lance Eason

Or 

Jones Brissett Eason

Haven't watched much on Mac Jones, but I heard the Pats are interested at 15

He's not mobile but is very accurate. He will definitely need a good line to succeed. 

 

We have that.

Take a quick look. Nice touch, but not much of an arm. It does discourage me though that a lot of his throws were either to wide open WRs or Smith making a ridiculous catch.

his receivers are elite so he does lose lots of credibility with that. I think his stock now is bottom 1st - definitely day 2 pick

He has definitely started to trend in the wrong way

Irsay is definitely big on loyalty, he wouldn't have done that to Peyton IMO, no proof of course. A disrespect type thing.

 

If he were never our rival, he would've definitely been an option for us.

actually the right way

before this year he was probably mid rounder

 

this season amplified his stock 

 

Yea, but both his WRs are going in the first round. That's going to be hard to separate. Look at how much Tua struggled and both his WRs went in the first round.

I'm not so sure you're getting wildly different results if you swap Tom unto the Colts this past year.

 

The Colts don't have anything approaching what TB has in terms of WR's and I think that unit is picking up Brady's game at this point. He looks okay, but he's not driving the thing.

WOW  I thought we were in all in mode??  Truth is we are in some trouble next year.  I think Rivers was Rivers and done what he has done his whole career, Thank you Phillip, you got us to the playoffs, and silenced the mob, for another season.  We have free agents that will want raises if we want them to play for us next season.  Our current system is not going to work.  we payed our current backup QB 10 million this season for being a good  locker room guy?  Frank is not going to coach us to the ring. Chris is great at drafting talent, but doesn't seem to have much say, so on how we retain them.  Jim, I think you are the best owner in the NFL, but your hope of drafting another Peyton, or Andrew, to right the Horse is futile at best.

 

 

I hope I am totally wrong, but  I am a COLTS fan, and this is MHO.

Must be sad to have a sky is falling attitude?

    • I have to agree. His draft order is not always spot on but his ability to evaluate talent is always in the ballpark as to what GMs agree on.  As it turned out Tobin's rant ended up being pretty lame after Trev Alberts ended up being one of the Colts all time bust. Not only was Alberts a bust, so was Tobin. 
    • I don’t know why after so many years there are so many people who still believe Kiper  doesn’t know what he’s talking about? The exact opposite is true.   Always has been.   He’s lasted more than 35 years and for very good reason.    But I’ve been reading this here since I showed up nearly nine years ago.  Some falsehoods die slowly around here.   
    • I also think a trade back with the Packers is an excellent idea this year.  With Draftek's trade chart and the updated compensation picks being added into their system both teams would benefit.  Currently the Packers have compensation picks in both Rounds R5P174 and R6P217.   If the Colts trade back with the Packers and following Draftek's trade chart can see the Colts get GB R3P92, R5P170 and R6P211.  Again GB still has two picks available 4 picks later in each Round 5 and 6.   I like the double trade with the Steelers as well.  Have also been tinkering with trades and after dealing trades with the Packers looked at the Steelers for a second trade partner as well.  With the additional picks we acquired we then trade them to Pittsburgh R5P162, R5P170 via GB-IND-PIT, and pick up the Steelers R4P124.   Then for the draft would look something along these lines:   R1P29 (GB-Colts) RCB Ifeatu Melifonwu (Syracuse) R2P54 WR Nico Collins (Michigan) R3P92 (GB-Colts) DT Marlon Tuipulotu (USC) R4P123 TE Tre’ McKitty (Georgia) R4P124 (PIT-IND) DE Jordan Smith (UAB) played both edges R6P180 RG Ben Cleveland (Georgia) or RG Tommy Kraemer (ND) R6P211 (GB-IND) – C Ryan McCollum (Texas AM) R7P243 RB Gerrid Doaks (Cincy)
