Eason was starter got hurt, Fromm came in played well and they elected to stay with him and Eason transferred       If you want to go that route then, Justin Fields couldn't beat o

I just wish this Wentz story would end 

The Texans aren't trading Watson to the Colts under any scenario.  Imo

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

I don’t believe that to be the case. I wouldn’t have thought a team could move all the way from 27 to 10 overall to get a sought after QB, but KC did back in 2017.

They will probably be gone by 10, they could both be gone by pick 4

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.

And Ballard is already a better gm

Say what you will and I’m as big of a Ballard admirer as there is.....

 

But Ballard hasn’t won a Super Bowl.   Philly has.    I understand the rails have come off there,  but still...    Just saying...

Breer never said he had sources they were going to trade up. That locked in colts podcaster always twists what is said. Breer said I sort of wonder if they would think of trading up. Lol

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

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.

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.

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
