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?

    • Instead of starting a new thread, I figured I would just post this here. It is a good thread to do so. After analyzing every team we have had since the 2000 season, looking at statistics of each of those years, talent we had on those teams, and by my memory's eye sight I ranked them from worst to best, here they are: 21. 2011 (2-14) - worst team 20. 2017 (4-12) 19. 2019 (7-9) 18. 2001 (6-10) 17. 2015 (8-8) 16. 2016 (8-8) 15. 2010 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 14. 2000 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 13. 2002 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 12. 2012 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 11. 2013 (11-5) 1-1 playoffs 10. 2018 (10-6) 1-1 playoffs 9. 2008 (12-4) 0-1 playoffs 8. 2020 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 7. 2014 (11-5) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 6. 2007 (13-3) 0-1 playoffs 5. 2004 (12-4) 1-1 playoffs/Manning 49 TD's that season 4. 2003 (12-4) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 3. 2009 (14-2) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Champions 2. 2005 (14-2) 0-1 playoffs, more talent than the 2009 team. 1. 2006 (12-4) 4-0 playoffs/SuperBowl Champions, best because they closed.   -Interesting since the 2000 season, our regular season record is 208-128. Playoff record is 13-15. The 208 regular season wins rank 4th most out of 32 franchises, the 13 playoff wins rank 7th most out of 32 franchises. The franchises that are ahead of us in those categories are: Regular Season wins 1. New England Patriots = 244 regular season wins   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 217 regular season wins   3. Green Bay Packers = 210 regular season wins    4. Indianapolis Colts = 208 regular season wins   Playoff wins 1. New England Patriots = 30   2. Baltimore Ravens = 16   3. Pittsburgh Steelers = 15   4. Green Bay Packers = 14, Philadelphia Eagles = 14, Seattle Seahawks = 14   7. Indianapolis Colts = 13    SB wins since the 2000 season 1. New England Patriots = 6   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 2, Baltimore Ravens = 2, NY Giants = 2, Tampa Bay Buccaneers = 2    6. Indianapolis Colts have 1, tied with the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, KC Chiefs.   I guess our franchise over the last 21 seasons (2000-2020) going by these categories would be considered great. Something some should think about before criticizing our franchise or Mr Irsay.      My long historic post for the morning 
    • Heres another Ojulari type of guy that i like. His name is Malcolm Koonce. Same issue although i think hes a tad bit bigger than Ojulari in terms of weight. Comes from the same school as Khalil Mack. Actually built and moves like Mack. They list him as more of a 3-4 backer but he is so quick and agile i think it could work in a 4-3. Justin Houston type. He was in the Senior Bowl but i dont have clips. I think Buffalo ran the same 3-4 type system when Mack was there and he ended up going to the Raiders plaing in a 4-3 system so it could possibly work. Koonce is really quick.        
    • I really like that and tried something similar in in PFF's simulator.    I'd rather go WR or TE with the 3rd pick though and pick up a promising CB later, but, I confess, I don't value CB very much so that's probably just me. 
    • I would say my draft crush is Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern. He's fast, athletic, a great player, well coached, and never out of position. 6'1 190, perfect scheme fit for us. Ballard visited his pro day and loves him. Great RAS. Great combine. He can even defend the run. My favorite CB in the draft. Take a look at him if you haven't already.
    • I'm thinking the Chiefs or Packers would do it. Packers could go after Newsome, Farley, Toney, or Bateman at 21. Chiefs could go after an O-Lineman at 21. Especially if Teven Jenkins made it to us. I'd hate to lose him, but he's more of a RT anyway, so I'd trade down in a heartbeat to get a 3rd. Might even get a day 3 pick next year as well from the Chiefs.
