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.

    • Pacers are an amazing organization IMO.  They’ve assembled competitive teams for most of the last 25 years with very few high draft picks and not much FA draw to the square city in the middle of a cornfield.   They stink because of injury.  I’m pretty bullish in them assuming a return to the court for all these injured guys.  Are you?
    • The Seahawks allocated about 20% of the cap to the oline, raves about 12,  and 2011 NYG about 15.  That is what this thread is  about, cap economy.
    • In one of the posts I’ve said it’s possible that the Colts are revolutionizing football which happens every so often.  It’s not likely statistically because these type of changes happen once or twice a decade or so.   I said think the rules dictate that the passing game is the most efficient way to score.   One thing that might favor such a revolution, is the fact that since the rules are set up for passing success, teams have adjusted their personnel characteristics,  smaller LBs, nickel base ds.  It’s possible that  emmit smith era emphasis will come back.  I doubt it though.  You still are going to need to throw it into the end zone.
    • I’m not talking about having a great oline.  I’m talking about spending 30 to 40% of your cap in them..  Of course having a great o line is helpful.     The Hoggs aren’t recent.
    • They did Kelly's extension in September, just before the season started.   As for the percentage of the cap, the correct projection is to compare the projected cap hits to the projected salary cap figures. Just because contracts account for X percentage of today's salary cap doesn't mean they'll be the same percentage of the salary cap two or three years from now.
