I’m good with rolling with Eason or Trading for Wentz.    Rolling Eason is a win win for the team IMO. You could find your long term answer at the position or end up with a Top 10 pick. I don’t

If this happens at any point today, I'm off his back. I'll delete all my negative posts about him lol.

He can't throw to his left, his stats are put up in junk time, he can't hit open guys on the regular and I have Bears fans who called me and were thrilled that he was benched in the middle of the season and annoyed he got the job back and they back ended into the playoffs this year. The Bears were so thrilled with it they want the same guy as Ballard wants. There's more. I can keep going, but do I need too? Seems like "he's bad" given the topic really was satisfactory. 

1. he seemed to throw to his left more, and quite naturally, at North Carolina but, you're right,  fewer to his left with Chicago

2. I don't care much about stats, whenever they're made. Justin Herbert, 1 year ago, was rejected by many for his low stats, junk time or otherwise

3. Open receivers hit include A Rob and Kmet on consecutive redzone plays vs GB.

A Rob was hit in the chinstrap(bounced off) and Kmet was hit between the numbers(bounced off, luckily not INTd). There may be others I can't remember...no no...Javon Wims...endzone...New Orleans...hit Javon's hands and bounced off...

4, Bears fans must be thrilled now, because Foles is their guy...I think

Wentz would have an easier time in Indy...a move to Chicago could be career ending.

Why not just give the same for Wilson/Fields?

Carr is the kind of QB that could take the Colts to a Championship. If we could count on something similar from Wilson or Fields, then I am onboard

Hell no. I like Carr but I'd never give that much for him. 

 

But at some point that is what we would have to pay for a player of that caliber. Is it better we roll the dice on a player like him or just continue to hope in the draft...

I don't think Carr is that kind of QB. He's in the Kirk Cousins tier. He's serviceable but expecting him to take your team to SB IMO is not realistic. I think Wilson and Fields on rookie deals are much more likely to give you the edge you need to go all the way.

It depends on the team. See I put Flacco (in his prime) in the Carr and Cousins tier and Flacco won a SB. If we can get better on defense and get another good weapon at WR, Carr could lead us to a SB IMO. We have the O.Line and run game. I don't think it would take 2 1st's to get him either. I am thinking at most this years 1st and 2 2nd's = this years and next. That is a lot but may be worth it. It probably would take 2 1st's to get Ryan but he would be good here.

You have me iffy on both. I still think it would take two ones to grab either of them. It's a sellers market. I'd rather have Carr

I think he was being sarcastic. 4 top picks for any player is insane. That would be about as bad as the infamous Hershel Walker deal

Flacco had one of the best defenses in the history of the NFL. Unless we think we are close to that level this IMO is wishful thinking. Both our starting DEs from last year are free agents(and aging), both our starting outside corners from last year are FA, our MIKE is FA. We are not close defensively. In fact I think we are more likely to be worse next year than last year defensively and we were not amazing defensively either. We were probably about average to slightly above average and it was mainly due to us being able to turn the ball over. TY is FA, our LT just retired, 2 of the 3 TEs are FA. We have no QB, no LT, no WR1, no starting DE, no starting CB under contract. This is hell of a lot of premier positions to fill with 70M of capspace and 1 draft class(if we are aiming at contending next year). And we want to give up 25-30M of that capspace to the QB and the first 2 picks from this draft(+more in future drafts) for that QB. So you are left with 45M and 3d round picks and later to address LT, WR, 2xDE, 2xCB, MIKE, TE.

 

I personally wouldn't give up anything of significant value for players like Carr, Cousins, Goff, Jimmy G. I think Ryan is better than all of them, but I wouldn't want to give up significant assets for him either, again because we are cannot afford to both give big money to the guy and give premier assets for him, which can otherwise be used for cheap labor at some premier positions. We are not close enough. We are not a QB away. We are QB, 2xDE, 2xCB, 2xWR, LT + depth away + all of Braden, Q, Leonard contract extensions pending. Those are not cheap. We don't have enough picks and money to address all of them to a satisfactory level IMO. 

 

That's why I'm a fan of not pushing it when we ultimately don't have enough talent at premier positions and rather take a step back and reset our window. IMO the window (with a new rookie QB) should be in 1-2 years rather than this year. We will also get a chance to replenish the roster with hopefully some hits at DE and CB(Ballard has pretty much missed on all of the day 2 DEs and CBs so far).

Carr is a better option than wentz for sure but that would be a steep price.   However I do think he is more than just a manager on the field; he can win games   I think a 1 and a 3 or 4 is fair.   He is a win now player opposed to a rookie who is most likely wait two years and then maybe be a winner.

there's only 2 QBs worth multiple 1s, neither will be a colt

 

Who are they? 

 

Shakedownstreet proposed (sarcastically, I believe) to give up 2 first rounders and 2 second rounders for Carr. I don't think I would give that up for any player. In football, one serious hit can end a player's career. If that happens, you not only lose that player, but you lose all those top players you could have selected with those 4 draft picks.

not Carr. I wouldnt give up much more for Carr as I would Wentz, maybe a conditional 3rd.

Watson and Russell Wilson. That's it of the QBs rumored to have or to be placed on the trade block

I think Wentz will surprise a lot of people if he came here. He has the ability. I just remember many saying the same about rivers coming over.. 20ints the year before for a bad team being 38 years old.. Reich is gonna turn the clock back with Wentz and I truly think he plays for 10 years here 

(if he comes) 

my next personal choice is trading up and grabbing someone if they see fit

I like Carr but I would not give much for him. I would trade for Wilson, especially if my team had the Colts OL. Oh my. I think you would win the Super Bowl. 

 

I can't recall if it was @stitches or @EastStreet who wrote that Wilson fell off towards the end of last season. That is true and I don't know the reason for it. But his OL is always bad. And for much of last season, it was Wilson who was being talked about for MVP. So, I think he has a lot left. I still would not give up 2 first and 2 seconds for him or any player, including Mahomes.

yeah, wilson fell off big time. But if you look, the Seattle OL was decent the first few weeks of the season, 2-3 sacks a game, then fell apart with 5, 6, 5, 5, 4 ,5, sack games, starting with the vikings week 9.  After that beating, his QBR dropped from the 128-145 marks to 98, then 50. 73 etc. having only 1, 100+ QBR game the rest of 2020, meanwhile getting sacked like crazy.  

 

Wow, his starting center grades out at 18.8 for pass blocking?!?!!?

So, you agree with me that Wilson (Russell) would flourish on a team like the Colts that has a top-rated OL?

 

I think Seahawks fans would not be pleased.

yes i do. Provided he can work with Reich on getting the ball out faster.  He is credited with allowing 8.3% of his sack totals due to holding onto the ball, by far higher than any other QB in the league since 2012.

I wonder if anyone asked Wentz if he wants to come play here. Have we made sure to check that off the list yet? It’s a bit of an important detail in all of this. Surely someone has made sure we aren’t headed for a case of buyers remorse.

I wonder if Ballard may lower his offer of two 2nd round picks since I've heard that is the best offer out there, and possibly Chris could get Wentz for even less than that. If nobody else is really bidding, I would think Ballard would try to get Wentz for as little as possible. 

 

At this point though I wouldn't be upset if Ballard just moved on to either offering a 3rd or so for Darnold, or contemplating moving up in the draft for Fields or Wilson.

Yeah. I don't see that, even kind of. Carr is the kind of guy who'd give Ryan Tannehill a real solid run for his money a couple of sundays a year. 

 

Not Superb Owls.

Upon my initial check if Wentz’ Twitter (a very light check, admittedly, I’ll deep dive later) he has made no posts that appear to endorse even the state of Indiana as a whole, let alone Indy as a city or its football culture. 
 

Of course we’re reading the tea leaves here, but that seems to indicate that he may not like or want to be around us.

I'm a bit confused at the idea that Ballard would go giving up lot's of draft stock for the 3rd or 4th guy in the QB carousel in the draft. If he's evaluated that Wentz can do it (despite what I think), then increasing his offer, even a bit, like next years 1 instead of 2, is a much safer if nothing else move. 

 

Giving up lot's of draft stock get a guy like Fields is a 50/50 to get everyone fired- probably worse odds.

    • I believe we could have moved up to the 3rd pick with a similar deal if we executed it very early in the offseason.  The 49ers & Colts are very similar in the fact we have good defenses and strong running games.  Fields would have thrived on either team.  Here’s a tweet from QB Collective (which is Shanahan’s QB Camp).  It mentions consistency.  It’s funny that when you look at Fields’ 3 years of college ball (even his freshman year where his coach tried to pigeon hole him as a wildcat QB) his numbers never vary more than 3-5%.  66-70% completions. About 9-10 yards per attempt. About a 4-1 TD to interception ratio.  These numbers while not running a screen or swing pass heavy offense (which he can still do if asked).  Tough downfield throws while standing in the pocket.     Here’s the tweet from when Shanahan and his staff had a chance to work with Fields while in high school.  He took their coaching and implemented it and became the most consistent passing QB in this class.  No major swings in his numbers due to softer schedule one year, or sitting for 3-4 years and inheriting the most talented offense in college football history.  Imagine the next leap he’ll take with Shanahan coaching him every day for the next few years not just a week or so...  
    • Yeah Samuel doesn't seem to have thee profile of what the Colts want in cornerbacks.   Heck, Ballard even had to be talked into signing Kenny Moore because he lacks the desired size and that was off the waiver wire. Moore has long arms though. 
    • The Colts will need Wentz, to perform like Wentz of 2017, not 2020. The Colts didn’t trade for Wentz to manage games. They inquired about Stafford first, who is definitely not a game manager. Wentz was plan B and are hoping Reich can get Wentz back on track.    The success or lack of success, will fall heavily on Wentz as QB, because the Colts aren’t dominant on either side of the ball.       
    • Samuel seems like the least Ballard-like corner of all-time.   5-10 and 180.   His arms are 30 and 1/8th.   That’s two full inches below what CB prefers.   His hands are sub-9 inch.   8 7/8ths.       This makes no sense to me unless a scout is pounding in the table for him.   Remember, meeting with a guy doesn’t always equal interest.   Sometimes we’re confirming that we don’t want the player. 
    • The thing is.... its not a big reach.....  It could very well happen.....
