Seems SF is in the same boat as the colts with QB. Although they don’t have it as bad as the colts since they do have Jimmy G. He is just always injured. They have a ready to win team and can’t find the QB. They should trade up and try to get their guy this year.

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

At the end of this story it says colts are expected to make a run at Watson. It’s hard to tell if that is just opinion because we need a QB or from any sources. 

 

 

That is an interesting note...I can't see Ballard giving up that much draft capitol, but man it would be fun to have Watson on this team!

I read a report that said the Texans would be looking for two 1st rd picks and two excellent young starting players instead of four 1st rd picks.  Maybe Leonard and Kelly would do the trick.

So Jason said on for the colture podcast that he has been told Reich is not interested in bringing Carson Wentz in. Apparently the rumors of him not taking up coaching and being a bad teammate have some truth to them.

 

Its pretty sad they have Gardner Minshew on their podcast list. We are down to table scraps.

Thank goodness on Wentz.

Watson would be the one player you would give up that much for.  There should not be any questions. But colts being in the division and Watson only being 25 will make it a hard sell. If Watson was say 30 it might be a different story since Texans are rebuilding. I read the Texans might want some good players in any deal.

Me too. I mentioned it in my earlier post.

Going to play devils advocate here. Don’t even know why Ballard would do this. In his season ending presser he said Eason wasn’t even confident Eason could be the backup. Does anyone think Ballard is maybe sold on Eason being the future and he just said that as a smokescreen.  If we don’t draft and get some leftover vet Ballard really needs to just say they are going to be preparing Eason to take over in 22.  

I agree! Smoke screens and manipulation are the name of the game in the off-season!

No one is going to pay that...so it doesn't sound like they are serious.

I don't think trading away the heart of your defense and the call maker of the OL who was a pro bowler would be the right choice.  Subtracting key cogs from both the offensive and defensive units for a QB, doesn't make sense.  Maybe trading away one or the other, but not both.  

 

I would do maybe 2 1st's and say Okereke or someone on that level...but all in all I don't see it happening.

Or they might just be serious that they'd like a veteran quarterback to lead the team:

 

"Look, the type of team we have, it would really benefit us the most if we could get someone to come in that can play at a high level, that has veteran vision, veteran understandings of picking up things quickly so we can get into 2021 and really have a chance to kind of, if you will, take off where we left off, but just tweaking some things so we are an even better football team," Irsay said. "I really believe we can do that."

Saw this story on Wentz. Will be interesting to follow this. If he becomes available Reich will have to really talk to some people  and decide how true these rumors are about him. A lot of people are saying nick hadn’t committed to him because Wentz  has to decide still if he wants to be there.

New conspiracy theory. This one seems very plausible. Ballard never really wanted Stafford. He wanted to be in on the talks to se who might be taking a QB in the draft. He wanted to be in the discussions so he could get info on other teams. Right now he sees that panthers and SF might get a QB in the draft.  This gives him info on where he might need to trade up to. Its kind of easy to figure out which teams will need a QB but not so easy to see if teams like these two with vets at QB will take one. This puts Ballard on notice those might be two teams needing to get ahead of.

I think he was very interested in Stafford but the Rams offer couldn't be matched.  Detroit did well.   They got their starter next season in Goff (potentially longer).  Plus they got 2 first round picks and a third rounder.  Nice haul.  The Colts could have maybe matched the picks, but not a starter quality QB.

Why would Ballard have to be involved in the trade talks to find out which teams had interest in Stafford?

Well if he wasn’t all he really would have is media reports. Wouldn’t he get more info if he was involved.

Kevin Bowen will be filling in on JMV tomorrow and he will have Eason on tomorrow. Friday Ballard will be on Dakich Friday.

Thanks for the heads up! I knew about Ballard but not Eason. That should be interesting.

I've been told that part of the dynamic out there is a contest of egos between the 2 wunderkinds McVay and Shanahan

 

Rams make big move to replace Goff with Stafford; next move is the 49ers

Wow some great quotes by Eason here. Ballard and Reich have to love this kids confidence. Maybe they won’t trade up and find someone who can give them one more year to make sure Eason is ready.

I could get behind someone like Fitzpatrick or Dalton to start the season With Eason as the backup.

If it was clear Eason was going to be the starter in 22 I really don’t care who starts. This is where Foles could actually be a good option. Someone Reich is comfy with for a year to get Eason ready.

They're not trading Watson within the division.  They'll have 15 other teams to choose from.

I agree, but it would be nice to drive up the bidding...

 

The Jets would be the most likely to offer the picks to get him

 

We should say..... We will take Darnold for a 6th round pick......  And we promise to NOT bid up Deshaun  :)

How about if the Eagles offer Wentz and a 2nd rounder ... to take Wentz off their hands?

I would counter their offer by asking for 3 firsts and 3 seconds to adopt Wentz.

If that deal is made, then I'd probably start Eason, or Fitzpatrick, if we can get Fitz.

...then bench Wentz.

Pat Mcafee texts Ballard after the Stafford trade and asks what now. Ballard responds with we were very competitive until Rams came in and blew it up. Apparently the panthers were so sure they had Stafford they were in the process of getting his medical records from Detroit.

Did you just describe Cam Newton? And, no, Newton is not washed up. He is going to have a great season for someone.

    • That is the thing, you can't always look at position value because there are outliers like Nelson. Of course DE is more valuable than OG but if there is an outlier like a Larry Allen or Nelson it isn't. At the time we selected Nelson we needed a major upgrade to the O.Line and to protect Luck. Had we picked 3rd, I still would've took Nelson. I just seen him as being great, one of those outliers coming out of the draft.
    • Alarming?    When the time comes, you don’t think Pittman is going to get a big contract?   You don’t think Taylor is going to get a big contract?   The answers are right in front of you, and for some odd reason, you’re not seeing it.  
    • The Colts have the cap space to sign Leonard and Smith to long-term deals this year and Nelson fortunately for us we are able to extend his 5th-year rookie contract option and post-pone his big payday a year later.   Leonard is not a true MLB so I doubt he will reset the market value at the linebacker position.  Originally thought Leonard could get a 5 year/$100 million contract with $60 million guaranteed but think it will be closer to 5 years/$82.5 million with $40 million guaranteed.   Smith am guessing closer to a 4 year/$58 million contract with $30 million guaranteed.   Depending on whom we keep/sign at left tackle I think will set the stage of how much cap space we will have left to resign players.  Do we keep an older Fisher or try to go after Viking's O'Neill (RT) and move him back to his LT position he played in college.  Both will cost a lot to retain either way and have some flexibility with O'Neill and Smith combination.   Do think Glowinski will be a cap causality since he is already on the books for $7.5 million for 2021 and expect him to make over $8 million in 2022.   The only other pending FA of note after this season to play RG Brandon Scherff but expect him to be too high priced out of the Colt range (4yr/$66 million).  So looks like OL Chris Reed might be a future option or another current OL on the roster might be able to take over.    As for the draft will have to keep in mind RG Baer Hunter from Appalachian State.  Hunter's team's OL ranked as a top-15 unit nationally that was very good at running the football.  Biggest issue have seen about Hunter from his game tapes is his a  drive killer with potential penalties with unnecessary holding and block in the backs once the play has extended past the second level.  The young man I do like best at this point in time is RG Cain Madden from Marshall.  Madden's run-blocking abilities improved form 60.3 to 74.2 from 2019/2020 and he finished top 10 among RGs.   Wouldn't be surprised next off-season if we cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut and TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m.  Some of the other FA's doubt we resign are Stallworth, Rochell, Muhammad, Carrie, Mack, Eldrenkamp, Dulin and Campbell.   After we resign Leonard and Smith to big contract extensions can see the Colts resign, MAC, Pascal, Lewis, Turray,Holden, Hunt and Reed.  Hines should also get resigned and looking at something similar to Austin Eckler contract APY $4.55 million 3 year/$13.645 million (base 3.9 million, 4.5 million, 5.65 million with 1.35 million roster bonus each year).  One FA name I like to replace Stewart with a younger improved version is Bear's IDL Bilal Nichols at best am comparing him to IDL Dalvin Tomlinson where I would offer him a 3 year/$33 million $11 million APY with $20 million signing bonus.  Again we get back either $8.125 million or $9.378 million depending on when we release Stewart under this scenario which after these movements only leaves the Colts with a projected $7-8 million in cap space currently.   Will have to do more research and play around with the futures but can envision the Colts will need to find starting WR, RG, RCB with backups at RDT, RDE, RB, FS, SS,  and TE.   Early watch list RD 1 Draft picks 2022 TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M George Pickens, WR, Georgia Drake Jackson, Edge, USC Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida   RD 2 picks Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson John Metchie III, WR, Alabama Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan          
    • If what Ballard says about a Achilles is what happens with Fisher that means he could be ready by TC. Mack looks like he might be close to 100% and he is at the 8th mark. I think they will be extra careful with Dayo. But Fisher is a vet so if he is ready he will go.  Very possible Fisher is ready week one.
