Or how about Wentz take number 7 and he and Pittman go with the 7/11 "Always Open" catch phrase.  The fact that he reached out was a clear sign that he wanted the number.  It's good that he's not gonn

Breaking news.   Wentz texted Blue inquiring about the number 00.   Blue only sent this in response.   Not sure if this is yes or no however   

Appears the answer is 2.      Super stoked to see he seems to have gotten the very first one.

Not sure but I'm really getting that eerie feeling today that we're gonna be the team that gets him. We obviously get the whole Reich connection but still it's not just that. I think we want it. As much as I would probably prefer saving draft capital and rolling with Fitz and Eason, nabbing someone like Eason when they're available seems like a Ballard move to me. Draft a guy who can for sure win games now but possibly still has major upside with the right staff and players around him. I could live with it. I prefer the aforementioned option because we don't have to give up draft picks. But considering we're a playoff caliber team now, I could see why Ballard an Co may not be interested in gambling on Fitz and an unproven second year QB.

Detroit got a 1st round pick for taking Goff contract off Rams books. Colts should get similar with Wentz, or tell them “no deal.”

The Rams also got Matt Stafford.

Yes, but in my mind, Detroit got a 1st for Stafford and a 1st for taking on Goffs contract. 
 

Again, let me restate “in my mind.”

That, plus a dead cap hit of 24,547,076 after 2021 when we release or trade him lol.

That is absolutely a concern. Although, paying QB’s millions of dollars to sit the bench or stay home, is kind of a Colts thing these days. So why not add a monster dead cap hit to the list.

Michael Pittman Jr. is currently #11 and I have his jersey that I like to wear to games.  Hoping Wentz won't take #11 because I want Pittman to keep it.

None. We aren’t getting Wentz. At least I freaking hope not

I feel like I'm having a premonition... Here's my fear. 

 

Feb2021 - Colts send a 2021 2R pick + starter, or 2021 2R + conditional 2022 SR to the Eagles for Wentz

Jan2022 - Colts miss the playoffs at 9-7. Decide to stick with Wentz. TN wins the AFCS. 

Jan2023 - Colts miss the playoffs at 8-8. Decide to stick with Wentz. Jax with Lawrence win the AFCS. TN WC.

Jan2024 - Colts miss the playoffs at 9-7. Jax again, Houston WC. Stuck with Wentz in his last year. Keep him as backup. Reich fired.

Apr2024 - Colts draft a QB in middle of the 1R. Colts hire Sirianni as HC... Rinse, repeat.....

It's a Shame Bert Jones #7 wasn't retired(I have a opinion on retiring numbers, maybe some other time). But with Brissett hopefully out of here it's logical Wentz is given #7.

 

And when Wentz throws to Pittman, it would be 7 to 11 :funny:

If we got Wentz that would be the least of my concerns.

I strongly believe that Reich would make Wentz a franchise QB again.  He had 2 great years 1 good year and then a bad year.  I don't believe this bad year is more indicative of his abilities than his 3 good years.  

 

I don't think we will get him.  But if we got him for 2 2nds or 1 2nd and a non star starter I would be pretty excited.

IMO, he's only had one truly good year. 2017 was good QBR wise. 16 and 20 were bad. 18 and 19 mediocre.

 

And he's only played 2 full years. 

 

So we have

 

1. Health concerns

2. Broken-ness concerns

3. Locker room concerns

4. High contract and bad dead cap concerns

5. He wants to leave Philly after they just fired a HC for him and brought in new staff just for him, concern... 

 

And all that risk for one good QBR year, in which he only played 13 games.

I think its funny that many have already set the narrative of him becoming the new forum whipping boy before he's even here.  LOL.

 

It's a tough job, but it is mandatory that this forum always have someone to blame for all the woes in the world! Would be funny if the Colts traded for Wentz and resigned JB. Who would get the honor of being forum public enemy #1?

It would still be Frank's play calling.

Even Bears fans are saying they hope their team stays far away from Wentz...that’s saying something. The Bears haven’t had a real QB for years, and they want no part of this guy.

I'm in the minority but I would prefer Brissett to Wentz.  The devil you know and all that.

Good lord no. JB needs to be good and gone.

    • Without looking at the link first what percentage of runs do you think the Colts did last year? I was quite surprised. I was just as surprised that Baltimore led the league with their percentage.   NFL Football Stats - NFL Team Rushing Attempts per Game | TeamRankings.com https://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/stat/rushing-attempts-per-game   There will never be another team that runs it an absurd 70% of the time like the 72 Dolphins, but I would definitely like to see our percentage  go up, especially with the RBs we have. I guess 40% seems really high considering what we did last year, and what Baltimore led the league with, but what the heck. If we're able to stay on the field running it 40% of the time we will be hosting the Lombardi next February so 40% is my final answer. Although I realize it will never happen.   1972 Miami Dolphins Stats | The Football Database https://www.footballdb.com/teams/nfl/miami-dolphins/stats/1972
    • For reference, here are Ballard's 45 draft picks so far:   2017 | Round 1 | No. 15 overall | S Malik Hooker 2017 | Round 2 | No. 46 overall | CB Quincy Wilson 2017 | Round 3 | No. 80 overall | EDGE Tarrell Basham 2017 | Round 4 | No. 137 overall | OT Zach Banner 2017 | Round 4 | No. 143 overall | RB Marlon Mack 2017 | Round 4 | No. 144 overall | DT Grover Stewart 2017 | Round 5 | No. 158 overall | CB Nate Hairston 2017 | Round 5 | No. 161 overall | LB Anthony Walker Jr. 2018 | Round 1 | No. 6 overall | G Quenton Nelson 2018 | Round 2 | No. 36 overall | LB Darius Leonard 2018 | Round 2 | No. 37 overall | RT Braden Smith 2018 | Round 2 | No. 52 overall | DE Kemoko Turay 2018 | Round 2 | No. 64 overall | DL Tyquan Lewis 2018 | Round 4 | No. 104 overall | RB Nyheim Hines 2018 | Round 5 | No. 159 overall | WR Daurice Fountain 2018 | Round 5 | No. 169 overall | RB Jordan Wilkins 2018 | Round 6 | No. 185 overall | WR Deon Cain 2018 | Round 7 | No. 221 overall | LB Matthew Adams 2018 | Round 7 | No. 235 overall | LB Zaire Franklin 2019 | Round 2 | No. 34 overall | CB Rock Ya-Sin 2019 | Round 2 | No. 49 overall | DE Ben Banogu 2019 | Round 2 | No. 59 overall | WR Parris Campbell 2019 | Round 3 | No. 89 overall | LB Bobby Okereke 2019 | Round 4 | No. 109 overall | S Khari Willis 2019 | Round 5 | No. 144 overall | CB Marvell Tell 2019 | Round 5 | No. 164 overall | LB E.J.

    • I think it is a tough schedule any way you look at it.  
    • I was wrong.   The Cardinals got swept by the Padres.   Only lost 1 game in the division though, which is good.
    • We got 2 better players trading back instead of getting Chubb at 3.
