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 knew you were going to pick him after the trade up and reading if you could pick now!  Good pick at 33!  
    • Didn't the Patriots extend Newton's contract for another year? It sounds like they intend to keep him as starter. 
    • I used TDN's Mock Draft Simulator and I tried to keep things as realistic as possible (not taking guys that oddly fall absurdly far). I double up on edge, but I think I hit needs without reaching.   Trade: Indy gave up picks 21 & 206 (6th) to Buffalo for picks 30, 93 (3rd), 161 (5th) - Buffalo traded up to take Azeez Ojulari.   30. Liam Eichenberg | OT, Notre Dame - I teetered between Eichenberg and Cosmi, but decided to go with the safer plug and play option. Next to Q, I think a guy with a high floor and and average ceiling will still do well.   58. Payton Turner | EDGE, Houston - Really good edge prospect that may not be an instant contributor, but has all of the physical attributes we look for (size, length, explosiveness) and has a solid foundation to build from. After seeing an interview with him on the PFF YT channel, I think he also has the right mindset.   93. Trill Williams | CB, Syracuse - A prototypical CB for our defense. He's got the size, length, and speed we look for in our CB's. He can play outside, as well as in the slot against smaller, shiftier WR's. He can also lay a hit and is known for his knack for stripping the ball (in HS, he literally ripped the ball out of the ball carrier's hands right before they crossed the goal line and took it the other way).   127. Chris Rumph II | EDGE, Duke - After taking a pass rusher that checks our usual boxes, I veered a bit and went for more of a designated pass rusher in Rumph. He's 6'3" 244lb (think Leonard Floyd) and actually played in the 220's last season (he cited lack of regular facilities due to Covid, but has since been putting in work at EXOS). He's got the length with 33.75" arms and is an explosive athlete with great bend/flexibility. His dad is also a long time HS, college, and now NFL coach (Bears). He has some technical pieces to nail down and needs to get stronger/put on some more weight, but I think he would be a perfect rotational piece initially to add some speed off the edge.   131. Josh Imatorbhebhe | WR, Illinois - One of my favorite later round WR's. He's a raw from a route running perspective, but has size, good speed, and can out jump literally any CB on the field. He could just be a RZ guy initially, but with good coaching & development, could be special. He reminds me a lot of AJ Brown, just not as polished.   165. Bobby Brown III |IDL, Texas A&M - Dude is a brick wall and actually moves really well for his size. He can play either DT spot on our line, can play both the run and rush the passer pretty will, and while he could go higher than this, his questionable motor has me thinking he'll fall a bit. I think playing with Buckner and Stewart should rub off on him and I'd be willing to take the gamble at this point in the draft.   248. Zach Davidson | TE, Central Missouri - A small school TE (6'6" 240) that is more of a move TE than anything. He reminds me a bit of Dan Arnold in that he doesn't offer much in the way of blocking ability, but he's athletic and gives you a TE that can help in the receiving game. He definitely needs to bulk up a bit and get stronger, but I have faith in our coaching staff's ability to develop TE's. He also gives you the bonus of doubling as your back-up punter, as he played both positions in college.
