Please for the love of god Ballard don't give up a first for a stat QB

Rivers had really good teams, he just failed. Stafford was given the worst of the worst teams and coaches. He's a "stat" guy because that's all he has, just win a shoot out. He's no injury prone at al

You’re nuts if you wouldn’t give up the 21st pick for Stafford.    Sign me up. Pull the trigger, Ballard

Prediction, Indy or New England. I wouldn't be surprised if the Dolphins don't try to get him and use Tua as trade bait..

 

Colts or New England, it would be a 1st and 3rd at least, maybe with Jacob Eason or Jarrett Stidham thrown it. The Dolphins would trade Tua, their own 1st and maybe a 3rd.

 

He went to college in Georgia, Ryan is on the block, could he be in the mix there?

My guess is Indy will make a crazy push..

What would you call only two playoff games, zero playoff wins, and 7 losing seasons in 11 years.

20M cap hit in 21

23M cap hit in 22

 

I would argue he is a younger Philip Rivers with a better arm and more mobility on a cheaper contract.  This is a no brainer for the Colts.  I would guess that Stafford will get a lot of say in his destination.  My guess is it will cost the Colts a 2nd rounder to get him, unless there is a bidding war, then it might take our first.

I can honestly say I have never applied or have wanted to be a gm, but thanks for your unasked for opinion.

Some people take this board to seriously. U made a simple suggestion and get called out.

You do realize he'll be 33 this year with no playoff success and 7 losing seasons. You really think that's worth the 21st pick?

For a proven NFL QB with a friendly deal already in place with 5+ years to play.... yes

Proven? What has Stafford done in this league? Has he won anything?

Are you insane?

Partially ...lol.  Would I trade a player who is going to demand a monster contract at a postion that can be filled later in the draft for a possible 5 year franchise qb?  Yup

The story is on ESPN.coms front page.   League sources say the Lions expect at least a first round pick. 
 

OK...   it’s out there.   Let the bidding begin.   I have no idea if the Colts have any interest?  I only know one option is now public for all interested buyers. 
 

I’ll try to add the link in a minute.... 

 

And here's your link:

Proven to be a consistent top 12 QB in the league with consistent bottom 5 rosters and coaches

Come on now. He’s stuck in the swamp called Detroit. Last time I checked football was a team sport. What did Andrew Luck win?

Andrew Luck beat Peyton 3 times and went to the AFC championship. First three seasons he won 11 games each season. That a joke

The last three seasons, hardly. Only last season he got 4000 yards and he's been injured two of the last three seasons.

To me this lowers their leverage on return value in a trade. 

The fact that he says he wants out? I would disagree. It's not like the lions HAVE to trade him. Worst case scenario, lions draft a QB at #7 and sit Stafford until a team gets desperate enough to ante up the offer. I could see your point if Stafford said he only wants to play for team X (e.g. Paul George situation with pacers), but it isn't the case. 

 

Similar situation with DW4. It's clear DW4 wants out, but the texans will still clearly get a haul for DW4 if/when they trade him since the NFL is generally a seller's market when it comes to QB's.

Of the options available, I like getting Stafford the best.   We have to be realistic.  There is no way the Colts can get high enough in the draft to get Lawrence or Wilson.  I think Fields and Lance are overrated.  And I don't know that Jones and Trask are any better prospects than Jacob Eason.  And there is no way the Colts would go into next season playing a rookie QB.  So that leaves Free Agents or a trade. Free agents aren't really inspiring.  The Colts need someone at the level of Rivers or better. So I would like Stafford/Eason next year.

He's won more than any other available quarterback or rookie. Our team is ready to win now,why wait and hope we draft a rookie who ends up being decent. Glad you are not our gm :jump:

 

Win now? Do you see all the holes we have right now? No QB1. No LT. No DE. A ton of our players are free agents.

    • I hope so   I do think as you get later and later on the LT spot, the more likely they arent going to be ready for day 1   I do think that Eichenberg MIGHT be there As well as Leatherwood, and Christianson (BYU)   Eichenberg may be the most ready for NFL (Day one), but  All 3 may need some polish before they start at LT
    • At 21: Radunz is my favorite option to get the most important need filled right away with a stud OT.  I love his game, he's got some nasty to him and good feet, moves really well in space too he's my kind of OT.  Rankings are all over the place but this guy probably won't make round 2 and he's my favorite OT in this class.  Need plus value here IMO.   At 54: Friermuth is my favorite TE in this class.  Now I realize everything's about measurables and athleticism and everyone's swooning over Pitts who is a fine prospect.  But guys like Friermuth who bring a safe target across the middle that DBs will bounce off of offer a lot of value to your QB.  When this guy gets the ball in the secondary you can see the DBs hate taking him on.  Guys like that can have a wear down effect on a secondary which will always have value even in an age where speed is more valued than ever.  This would be need plus value as well.   At 127: Amari Rodgers is going to be a fine slot receiver in this league.  Teams will feel him right away too.  Good chance he goes off the board before this point but him being in play here is a testament to the depth of this class, which means there are other options to finish up your WR room with this pick no matter how this draft goes down.   CB and WR have multiple guys I like in rounds 3 and 4, as both groups are very deep.  I think from an efficiency perspective getting those two rooms some help makes sense in those rounds.
    • If I added .....  Realistic pick at 21 vs overall favorite   I would say Paye, Darrisaw, Jenkins, in that order   If all 3 are gone .... Im trading the pick for more picks 
    • I mean it seemed the Bengals didn't care to keep Lawson either since they signed hendrickson to a similar deal that Lawson got (4 year 60 million vs 3 year 45 million). Granted the deal is slightly different with the Bengals having an out on the hendrickson deal after the first year and the Jets having an out after the 2nd year.
