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.

The same people who want no part of Wentz are the same who wanted no part of Rhodes and Rivers. If we pick the dude up im sure they did their homework and are fairly sure of what he can be on our squad. Im on board as long as we dont get crazy with the over bid stuff which we never do. Personally based on last year im not sure a 1st round anything is due for Wentz but im not denying the man has a lot of talent. Skillset is similar to Luck if you can clean some things up. Hes worth a shot to me at our number that we have on him.

Wrong, not me. I wanted Rivers and even said we would make the playoffs with Rivers and I don't want Wentz.

It looks like the Bears have the best offer on the table for Wentz, unless the Colts really want him he might be traded in the next few days, personally I am skeptical of both Eagle QB's

 

Carson Wentz- was great for three months in 2017, does not seem to inspire.

 

Jalen Hurts- benched in college for Tua, classic backup comes in does well in first start (vs. Saints) play drops off the more you see him, did you see the game against Dallas, the Colts were projected to draft him in the second round last year, and didn't, don't trade the 21st pick for a guy who won one start.

there must be something else out there.

I remember how many people loved Jacoby after the 2017 4-11 season, but want him gone now, while I was not a fan of his back then, he seems to be really part of the team fabric, they rally around him, if he could work on the fumbles, I would feel comfortable with him as the starter, with Eason playing significant time  in the preseason to see if he has a future. trading away multiple draft pics to win now seems crazy unless you're Jim Irsay who is cleaning the trophy room as we speak.

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.

21. It will probably cost Ballard 2 1st round picks.lol

I'm not a huge fan of trading for Wentz but it's really not a bad scenario. I believe his 2022 salary is only guaranteed after March 3rd. So you let him and Eason battle for the 2021 starting spot.  Likely Wentz wins that one but Colts get a good read on Eason.

In 2022 , the Colts have 3 choices...

1) If Wentz is effective , Colts have him under contract through 2024. 
2) If Eason is the better option of the 2 , release Wentz and find a back up for Eason.

3) Draft or sign a FA QB if both disappoint .

DeMichael Harris already has 12.  Sorry to ruin a good joke.

So....  Realistically speaking, it looks like 1, 2, 4, 5, or 6.  My vote is for 1.

Pittman wore 6 at USC. It's just silly that the NCAA and the NFL can't have the same rules around numbering. 

 

If Wentz wants 11, he needs to make a financially lucrative offer to Pittman lol... enough to make Pittman move to 10, 15, 18, 19, 82, 83, 87, 88, or 89.... As an X, I like Pittman with 88.

I'll just say this about Wentz. He's hurt to much for me. Now the senario I see playing out. Colt trade for Wentz. Wentz gets #7. Brissett signs elsewhere and Eason is the backup. Wentz starts the season as our #1 an gets hurt and Eason gets the start and balls out and Wentz never sees the field again.

Not even close to being  true.

Also rivers had a history of rebounding  after a bad season  wentz doesn't have  that yet

Nor are 82 or 89 also word is 87 and 88 are unofficially retired.  That’s why Harris got 12 last year because it was the only number available.

I miss having WR's with 80-series numbers.

No,no,no,no,no. I'm done with this team if they choose Wentz.

 

I agree, I will be saying dumb QB decisions are Ballards downfall. I would cut him more slack for going with a cheap option and it not working than going for someone with Wentzs contract and they fail. He is too high risk for the price.

Ballard won't get fired anytime soon

    • Kerrigan was upset that he took a backup role with WFT and wanted to be an every down player.  Kerrigan would be a great addition to our Colts and seemed to be very comparable in terms with Houston if not better imo.  Yes Kerrigan is from Indiana and I have been hoping we signed Kerrigan in FA for a while now.  We clearly need proven depth at DE and Kerrigan will provide that.  Right now we have Paye and Muhammad as the clear starters and outside of a healthy Turay I can't trust Bangou and we all know Dayo will be a scratch most of the season.
    • Think the Colts bottom line lacks proven depth at our Edges to an extent.  I do think that Paye, Buckner, Stewart, and Muhammad will be the starters and Turay when healthy flashed real potential in rotations.  After that we don't have proven rotational guys on the edges and Ben is going to be a FA in 2023, assuming we let him go, plus Turay will be a FA next off-season.  It makes sense for the Colts to beef up their DL since we failed to do so in the past few off-seasons and appears we didn't draft that well either.    Depending on how well Wentz plays and which round we start off our draft I wouldn't be surprised if the Colts targeted another top DE.  My early draft projections favorites for DE are Myjai Sanders (Cincinnati), Aidan Hutchinson (Michigan) and George Karlaftis (Purdue).  If we had to sign one FA DE next season I would consider Uchenna Nwosu (Chargers).
    • As previously stated I think it's primarily money now.  He will not play as many snaps as Houston did last year due to Paye and Turay getting back to health.  I think the money is earmarked for Fisher now.
    • Again hindsight is 20:20 but essentially that is what the difference amounts to.   I truly believe it comes down to how folks evaluate Fields and Wentz.    If someone loves Fields then that's the way it should go especially w his cheaper rookie contract.   If someone believes Wentz can be a top-15 QB again (not even the MVP 2017 version but just the Top-15 2018-2019 version) then a lot of times the idea of giving up a potential top-notch pass rusher along w another pick is hard to stomach.   I actually have some faith in Wentz so I am ok with what we did. Fields is awfully enticing though. I hope he works out well for Chicago and that more importantly Chicago works out well for him.    
    • I was for Wentz early, one of the first here. And knew if Eagles were foolishly getting rid of him, he would be more easily acquired than a Fields,Wilson etc... I think we lucked into getting  Wentz and he will be a good QB for us.   But I didn't think Fields, my favorite QB draftee would fall to 11.. and I would have been thrilled & excited if we moved up to get Fields.   It is what it is and be happy we have Wentz and not Brissett, Dalton, etc...
