Hmmmmm...... if not in win now mode then why trade 13th overall pick for a DT? 

Because they needed a DT and they traded for one of the best in the league that will probably play here for the next decade.  It’s not like they traded for a 34 year old and only has a one or two year window.

Maybe it was you who misunderstood ? 

We all have different opinions on what we interpret on what we hear said. 

All we really heard was the normal GM/coach speak. Ballard is very good at saying a lot of words without really saying a lot. We both know that. 

CC... 

 

Youre the only person here who has stated this position.   No one else thinks this.   Plus, no media outlet has agreed with your view. 
 

We were just in the playoffs and nearly won.  We will sign a competent LT.   Ballard believes he can trade for a veteran QB the team can win with.  The team will improve.   I appreciate that no team wants to over promise and under deliver,  but we also don’t want to talk down expectations either.  We will try to sell season tickets.  No GM in Ballard’s position is telling the fan base we’re just not that good. 
 

You can hold your ground on your position, but again, you’re completely alone on that.  There’s nothing that supports your position.

Ballard has just said this was not a win now team and were not super bowl ready. 

If there is one thing I have learned in my over 50 years of following the NFL, there are no 100% certainties. 

We need to finish what he said. He also said they have until the season starts to finish filling the holes.

So.....Buckner is in his prime probably these 3 years. So when is win now mode? When he is 28? I think Ballard over valued his team and is back pedaling a little

Who are you arguing with?   Of course Ballard wants to win now.   That’s why Ballard and Irsay say they want a VETERAN QB NOW!   
 

The only thing Ballard has said is that our window of opportunity is NOT closing.  He says the opposite is true.  That it either hasn’t opened yet, it has just started to open a little.   
 

So what’s the problem here?

They may have to go up and get someone but every team that lands a QB in the off-season is one less team that will draft a QB increasing the Colts odds to get one.  
 

It won’t be popular but the break glass in case of emergency option would probably be to re-sign Jacoby.

that would be a good thing

Yup...    I think you’ve nailed it.  

 

Ballard and Reich will try to acquire a Veteran.  But if all attempts fail, the simplest most straight forward solution may be to re-sign Jacoby and see what happens for a year. 

 

The 2021 Colts should be much better than the 2019 Colts.   And JB should be better as well.          :thmup:

Plus Jacoby was just never the same after he got hurt.  Now was that because of the injury or because teams got enough tape on him to figure out how to play him?  That we don’t know.  What we do know is he knows the system and has experience.  Clearly he’s not the first option but I think he’s a better option than sending Eason out there who has zero NFL game action at this point.

Yup.   I’m not a betting man, but if I was I’d bet that JB would have a better season in ‘21 than he did in ‘19.  
 

It’s always amazed me at the number of people who either downplay JB’s injury or have completely forgotten.   He may not have been great,  but he totally fell off after the injury.   Almost night and day.   He should be decent.  He should be improved.

 

Do I want someone better?   Of course I do, who doesn’t?   I’m just saying if we can’t make that happen, then I can live with JB for a season.   (At a MUCH MORE team friendly number).

Yeah I still expect them to bring someone else in.  However I just like Jacoby the person and I will pull for him as a result of that.  Still if they are going to go with a boarder line backup I expect them to go with Jacoby than bring someone like Fitz in.  I could even see a scenario where they draft a QB and sign Jacoby to be the bridge guy.  
 

Still I’d rather have someone else because I don’t think the Colts are winning a Super Bowl with Jacoby but I think he’s a pretty good alternative if the price for the franchise QBs is just too high.

Bringing back JB would be a good alternative to not addressing QB I guess. But it’s a very depressing thought.

Yeah, at this point the Eagles are doing what they should do. It's only been a couple weeks, they apparently have a couple teams interested, maybe more, it's fine that they wait it out for now. But at some point in the next week or two I think they have to pull the trigger, or risk having their plan blow up in their faces.

 

And I don't think they'll get a first from anyone unless they're giving up something significant, in addition to Wentz.

If they want to maximize on Wentz, they definitely need to do it soon, I agree.

 

The price "seems" to be set, (2) 2nds plus.(reports)

 

at any moment, 1 of these other could jump ship for a different QB option.

 

Doubt it drops much, but the longer they wait it increases the chances of that happening.

 

 

Does Ertz(insert Any player), improve that offer, from (2) 2nds +, to a 1st +? Ertz doesn't move the needle much for me. I think Doyle would most likely be going back in trade to equal out Ertz cap hit a little.

 

 

I think potentially, but I think I would want at least a mid to late draft pick back.?

 

Maybe:

#21

2023 4th

Doyle

 

For

 

Wentz

Ertz

2021 3rd

 

?

 

I've been looking at a little different than before, with potential of Ertz, and potentially Wentz(throw in Burton too)

 

It almost feels like if Reich could have had a grand scheme(dream scenario) coming here, that this move would have to be mission complete(come true).? Have the QB and the TEe's you had on the way to SB title and give it a run again.

 

Also have Hines in the Darren Sproles mode

 

Makes me wonder if Agholor is in play too? I know I wouldn't mind bringing him in.

I agree re: Jacoby.  But I wouldn’t be taking him (or his availability) for granted....as if we should just expect him to wait around as our last resort while we pursue other avenues.  Like Boof in Teen Wolf.

Gronk was retired.  Played for 9 million on the last year of his contract.   He wanted to play with Brady and only Brady.     Far from a marquee player looking for a big contract. 

 

Brown was the league pariah that no one wanted.   He signed a 1 year deal with the bucs for 1.5ish.  Far from a marquee player

 

Fournettes option was declined by the JAGS.   Signed a 1 year contract for 2.5 million.   Far from a marquee player 

 

 

Far from the super teams built in the NBA 

Anyone and everyone 

Thanks for making my point

Personally I think Ryan is better than Jacoby, and its enough to make a difference.  He does make more mistakes, but he makes more plays too.

If Wentz deal doesn't happen, Ryan would be my next call if it were me. Obviously it isn't but, I think Ryan might be my number #1 option as of now, definitely a better option tham JB, outside of having to give up compensation for him and JB just being FA.

 

Ready for this Wentz deal to happen, either way. If we still need to.find QB after this deal, I would rather move on soon.

Yeah, Im just putting it out there. 

 

Everyone knows where I stand on it.

 

 

I do think the thought of Reich's grand master plan, is intriguing though.

 

If he could have had a best case scenario(his) when he came over from Philly. I would think bringing his young MVP caliber QB(at the time) and Pro Bowl TE(at the time), to the Colts with him. That probably would of been it(his best case scenario).

 

It seems to be certainly a possibility at the moment. Like I said also, Burton is here(maybe; FA), Hines(Sproles role) and even could see Nelson Agholor possibility sign?

 

 

 

A story I will look forward to watch play out, if it happens.

 

*still not preferred option, but as I've stated will root for the best if it does.

    • I think with a win we most likely move up one more spot to 8. Steelers or Bengals will still stay ahead. We would also need Chargers to lose to the Broncos. So if Chargers lose to Broncos and Colts win then I think we will move up to 7.  What could change this is if Titans go into NE and win. As much as we hate rooting for the Titans might be better for Colts to have Titans beat NE.
    • Exactly,  you don't need a bunch of shallow stats to figure out who your best players are and who they are not.  Thank you for making logical points without cluttering it up with gibberish.  However, categorizing it as Frank "icing your best player", as if he doesn't know who that is, is biased hyperbole, IMO.   JTs best talent is his break away speed.  Using him as a plow horse is not the best use of talent.  There would have to be more analysis to understand why TEN can limit JTs big runs.  If they can do that consistently, a game plan would steer away from relying upon JTs big runs as chunk plays as a opposed to what a game plan would be against a different D.....(BTW, with NFL rankings having nothing to do with it).  With Byard, TEN probably has a better back seven than most, or match up better against us (since they don't have to worry about any receiver other than Pitt).  Targeting  receivers at 8.5 yds per completion more than running JT is not a bad game plan if you think JT is only going to get 4 yards each carry.   The one ill-planned target to MAC on the screen pass aside, targets to Dulin and MAC failed in execution and not in game plan.  Therein lies the issue more than not running JT 8 more times against TENs matchups, IMO.  
    • Regarding the Bills game. I think the Bills defense is overrated because they've beaten up on a lot of bad teams making them look better than they are. The Bills defense is a lot like the Colts defense was last year - we beat up on bad teams early, making us look good, but were mediocre against contenders. That said, we also benefitted a great deal from the bad weather. The Bills missed on a lot of opportunities because their receivers couldn't hold on to the ball making our defense look better than it is.   The Bucs have pretty consistently shut down the run. The Saints beat them by sticking to the run and I think the only way for us to win is to do the same. Keep feeding JT and don't panic if we fall behind. Also, it would be fantastic is we could start off like we did against the Jags and the Bills - get a turnover early and get a TD from it.   I really want us to win against the Bucs, but I think this game will be the toughest the Colts will face all season and I'm not confident we can win it.   34-27 Bucs.
    • We're only 1 game out of 3rd from a pure record perspective. And we'd have the tie breaker over Buf, and possible tie breaker over NE..    The two losses to TN really put us at a disadvantage. Just a split and we're 1/2 game out of 2nd... sucks.
