If true sounds like Ballard has made a reasonable offer.  Now we see who blinks first or if someone else offers more.  


Im hoping Ballard doesn’t give up two 2nd rounders for Wentz. I still think that’s too much considering we’re taking on his contract. Plus personally I’d rather get a Fields or Wilson in the draft by using that draft capital to move up.

Fields and Wilson are definitely unattainable from 21

It certainly doesn't look like Ballard thinks two 2nd's is too much.  That's what he thinks is a fair offer.

You don't think the Colts mulled this over before trying to trade for Stafford or Wentz?  I do.  Nothings changed.  I think this is out there to get the Eagles off their butt.  Two can play the game. 

If the Brain Trust didn’t look into them before the trade talks the don’t belong in the NFL

This why I don’t follow or listen to them

One of my biggest pet peeves is people doing this. This is basically the telephone game. Yesterday he had to delete a post because he said Reich was pounding the table for Wentz. When in reality it was reported Reich thought they could build around him. There was no reason to put his commentary on it. Just post the quote.

I think the Colts are going to take a step back next year with almost any QB they get. I think they are 8-8 give or take a win or loss. 

With this running game and defense, they could trot Jacoby back out there and get 9 wins.

Hope so! And it wouldn’t be a massive trade up. Wilson or Fields could possibly be had at pick 7. 

If going from 22 to 7 isn’t a massive trade up, I don’t know what would be....especially when a slew of teams is looking for a QB.

 

Remember what we got from the NYets for them to just go from 6 to 3?

 

I think it’s possible we’re hearing about this as fodder for leverage with the Eagles.  I’m not saying Ballard would never trade up in the draft.  But it’s certainly not been his norm.  He seems to like profiting off others wanting to trade up.

I relate the way some of these podcasts are run to using the Guy down at the local gas station as your only source for local HS or College Athletic Information

I was wondering the same thing

We would have to do a coordinated trade to get that far up. First player second draft picks. Fields is most likely going to the jets or falcons so both  him and Wilson will probably be gone and won’t even have a place to trade up too. 

 

Just saw a Chicago guy say looks like bears and colts could move on from Wentz. That is going to make him available soon because eagles are not going to get what they want.

No free agent will want to come here without knowing the QB situation. Unless Ballard overpays. Which he won't.

 


Not buying. By this point Ballard has earned enough respect around the league that players know they are going to have a real shot to compete here regardless. No free agent is looking at the Colts as a team who can’t make the playoffs for the next several years, and I the better they do figuring that QB spot out the more likely they are to compete at a much higher level. 
 

Indy is one of the more attractive destinations for free agents right now even with the uncertainty at QB.

I disagree. The future in the NFL is going to become more NBA like. Do you think a marquee wide receiver would choose Indy over Tampa? I don't think so.

Come on. Lets do this. (hopefully I can say the same on Draft day. 


I agree.  This is my favorite option.


By landing a rookie QB on a rookie contract, the Colts can address other positions of need by way of the additional cap space that will be freed up.

 

So, while I understand the concerns of losing draft capital, if they believe in the guy they’re trading up for, the value you are ultimately afforded substantially outweighs the short-term loss of draft capital.

The NFL will never be like the NBA.  The hard cap in the NFL prevents it.

    • Who said that Nelson is breaking down?      Is it not possible that the back pain is not the beginning of it?  Who knows, but I'm not going to ignore it and put it into the bucket of a one time fluke injury because I really really want to sign him.   Greg Olsen was one example.  There are other examples of athletes who put on weight right after college because their bodies don't mature until later.  They compete better.  Athletes also mature faster in college, becoming freaks of nature that dominate their not-yet-matured competition.  It all evens out at about age 25 and the once dominant player isn't as dominant anymore.   I have no idea if Nelson can sustain the dominance he had as a very young player.  I'm not going to assume that it just lasts into perpetuity.  The ability to physical dominate is often short lived.
    • So nothing. then   just jumping on someone else's thoughts?   Give me your reasons he sucks     
    • I think someone might od been on to something how all the Irsay and Ballard stuff is just PR stunts. Who knows what they have told Wentz behind closed doors too.
    • They signed Rivers a couple days into FA.   For Eason to be QB2, that would have meant JB was QB1 (with them not signing Rivers) or it would have meant keeping JB as the QB3, which would have been more ridiculous than keeping him as the QB2.    I don't see a path to Eason getting developed with JB here. They needed JB to be ready to go in case of injury. Plus, he already knew the offense and was getting his number called from time to time.    I just don't see how Eason was supposed to develop with Rivers and JB here. Without JB...that's a different story.    
    • If Wentz returns, Frank is going down with Wentz, I'm afraid.   Ballard will survive it.  Frank won't.
