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.

didnt agholor go to the raiders?  i thought he did not sure

Yeah he did, but he is a FA, and I have seen reports of Raiders maybe being interested in JuJu.

 

Also reports of us bringing in playmaker WR, I think he fits the bill a little. Plus knows the system.

 

We shall see?

 

 

I could see him brought in regardless what happens with Wentz.

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.  

Yeah I would put Ryan in the list of QBs they would try to acquire before turning to Jacoby.  Don’t miss understand me I am not lobbying for Jacoby to be given the job.  I am just saying if they get to the point they are looking at brining a bridge guy for a year who is a boarder line backup they will probably go with Jacoby because that’s what he is and he already knows the system.  Matt Ryan is still a starter.

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

It would not be popular that’s for sure.

21+'22 1st+ future 2nd and 3d... go get Fields/Wilson.

 

Allen Robinson 4/75

Taven Jenkins 2nd round in the draft

JJ Watt comes to ring chase for min

Yannick Ngakue for 3/50

William Jackson 3/40

Fitzmagic - 1/7

Gerald Everett 3/15 (release/trade Doyle)

get one of the fast receivers in the 3d-4th - Eskridge, Moore, Atwell, Dyami Brown, Darden? 

fill the rest with min flyers/ring chasers... 

 

This is my ultimate plan. Go do it, CB! :P

Who is the trade partner for that to get Fields / Wilson?

 

If either slide maybe that would work

 

I would love to get Fields.....  I just dont see them moving from 21 to 4.... too costly

Im ok with whatever option we go. Still prefer another veteran option or 2 if possible, first.

 

But if we go this route, just no point in Fitz. If you trade up for QB, let him play. Let him compete with Eason, best man wins. Not going to rehash the rest, though.:)

 

I don't think starting a young guy is "wasting a season" though. Should work out in favor either way. Comes in and exceeds expectations or struggles a little but gains valuable experience and a better knowledge from team whether our QB answer is on the team.

 

 

Either way:

1. Multi year vet trade option

2. Rookie/Eason comp

3. Bridge and Eason

 

I am ready to have some kind working knowledge on which one to look forward to how it effects our off-season approach.

 

Sooner the better.

Tony Pauline says Bears are the front runners for Wentz and that Darnold could be a real possibility for us, with the 49ers lurking.

 

Pretty vague but I like Pauline. He called us reaching on Banogu.

I really dont get excited about Darnold......

 

So far, Wentz at least was at a high level at one point......  Darnold hasnt

 

I would much rather have Winston than Darnold

Oh yeah, Darnold doesn’t entice me at all. Pretty pessimistic about all of our realistic options at this point though, kinda just waiting to be whelmed.

Best thing about Darnold option is money.

 

He is definition of low risk, potential high reward.

 

Only would cost $4.7m against cap, give us a 2nd option for potential future QB). Plus that would give us a lot more cap space to upgrade the rest of the team around him.

 

He does have about a $25m 5th year option pending, but even if picked up, I think it could be moved next year if we wanted to move on. Or just decline it and if he balls out then try and extend, if not franchise tag him(this is if he plays good and cant come to long term agreement.

 

Gives us a couple different option to have an evaluation of 1-2 years.

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

I also think they could win nine games with JB but that is not what they are talking about. LT is a huge hole to fill. You need receiver help because T.Y. is washed up. You need an edge rusher and you need a QB. That doesn't sound like a playoff team to me.

I think the Darnold route actually has more benefits than anything else. If he’s great he’s cheap and we can still go into the draft with a decent amount of capital. If he isn’t then we find out MUCH sooner what we have with Eason. 
 

Don’t want to think about it past that. It scares me haha

Darnold is a low cost option. But so is my aunt... she would play for $50k

 

In three years of playing Darnold hasnt shown much at all

 

He passed for 2200 yards and 9 Tds last year and didnt make it to 60% completion  

 

Thats not all his fault.....  but sheeze.... WHY would someone trust him as a viable option

 

There is a better chance that the guy is out of football in 4 years than being on an NFL roster

 

To me.... its a wasted opportunity

 

 

I would rather go with Eason and a rookie like Trask then start the year with Darnold

 

At least with Eason and Trask (or Jones) the outcome is unknown..... One of these MIGHT be a starter level

The risk really is a wasted year or two for the Colts

 

We would probably also have to part with a 2nd or 3rd round pick to get him......

 

IMHO the talent level is largely known on Darnold.....  

 

I would rather take a chance on one or two other players

I don't know. I would try to move in two jumps - first to around 10 range then to wherever we need to get the QB we want if he starts falling.

this years free agent wr market is very stacked . With the cap going down its the perfect year to get a wr from the market . That would likely mean no ty hilton though .    I would be a huge fan of colts brining in chris goodwin if he leaves the bucs

I hope the Colts trade for Wentz or Darnold or even pick up Minshew so I don't have to hear another year of Jordan Love type talk.  If I remember, he is the scout QB for the Packers.  Now it is Justin Fields this year.  Please.  Both are very overrated.  Other than Lawrence, the Colts aren't going to roll into next year with a rookie QB. They would end up 6-10.  So please give it a rest.  Again, when the Colts actually get a QB for a few years, I will happy not to read that anymore.

Both Fields and Wilson are much better than Love.

I don’t think a rookie QB means we go 6-10.  Most rookies go to bad teams. We have a good team. Lance has had very little experience so he would probably be the one to take the most lumps. Fields is really good and has experience.  I think he would do just fine. Wilson didn’t play against tough competition so he might have some growing pains. Fields is ready.

I won't argue that Darnold hasn't looked too good so far in his career, but I don't think being on such a bad team, with incompetent management, and one of the worst HC's we've seen in some time has helped. He has a ton of upside still and I think a locker room and coaching staff like ours could do wonders for him. I'm not advocating for Darnold, but I wouldn't be upset if we brought him in either (provided the price was right).

Albright better hope Fosh is wrong or he will look stupid.

 

I went back and watched some Darnold interviews last night. Wanted to get a sense of how he carried himself. I like what I see. Seems like a good kid. Like all the other QB though we would probably get outbid for him. If there is all virtual off season again that would really hurt us if that is the direction we went.

You advocate for Minshew?  Darnold?  Wentz?  And then call Fields overrated?  That’s laughable. What have the others done (besides Wentz for a couple years) outside of a good game here and there to be worthy of your praise and the Colts signing them?  The only sure thing Darnold & Minshew bring to the table is that they would be cheap.  I would like to hear how their continued failure at the NFL level make them better than Fields who’s better than they were coming out?  And Love wasn’t close to the prospect Fields is this season either.

No he won't. Broken clock is right twice a day. Fosh's antics have been well documented and he's a well known fraud. Even if he guesses something right it will be by pure chance and not due to sources or legit info he has. You and I can do the exact same thing and have about the same success rate.

Ultimately it won't matter if he's a good kid, but whether he can play. I have some minor hopes for him, but he still is just a shot to take. I wouldn't give up anything significant for him. 

 

I feel like I was highest on both Wentz and Darnold as options for the Colts before they actually became linked to the Colts, but it was with clear idea of what the risks are and the understanding that because of those risks the price should be severely limited. And now I find myself trying to pull back folks here from being ready to give up significant compensation for both of them.

I am not a huge Fields fan but I would rather roll the dice with Fields than trade for Wentz or Darnold or Minshew. Fields has pretty good potential and isn't damaged goods at least.

    • lol... you are the king of clutter and gibberish.... you've wrote several books without any fact, data, or sound logic.  but thanks, at least I got some chuckles. love the "conceptual skewing" comment to explain you're blatant disregard for fact and reality....   
    • 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. The good thing is Bills and Patriots still play twice and we play the pats. So probably doesn’t matter much.
    • 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.
