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?

    • TRADE 8 TO ANNOUNCE:   Jaguars trade Pick No.92 and Pick No.145 To Browns For Pick No.89   @EastStreet @NFLfan - should give you ample time during the break for adjustments, LOL
    • Well....    that's your perspective.    And there are others who agree with you,  so you're not alone.   I'll simply say that everyone is entitled to their own opinion.       Interesting how I didn't say anything wrong.   You had challenged me by asking if I was expecting fans to stop complaining on moves that haven't happened yet.    Those were your words.    I simply answered that you were only being a fan and that there was nothing wrong with that.    I didn't insult you at all.   Frankly,  I thought I was being very polite.   I think this last reponse shows you're not looking for a discussion,  you're looking for a fight.    In the old days here,  I'd give it to you.   But I'm trying to be better about such things.     So,  I'm done.    Good luck to you.
