Greg Cosell on Carson Wentz: "One of the most talented QBs in the league... last year was bad though"

Kerry collins, curtis  painter, dan orlovsky,  Scott  tolzien  were all worse than Brissett. 

 

It's not even close. JB replaced Tolzien after less than one game, and played significantly better than him, with two weeks of practice and about 20% of the playbook.

Puh-lease! Seriously.

 

Must we really let facts get in the way of a good ole JB hate fest??

Kerry Collins may be the worst? 

 

Since the Manning era started...I think so. At least his stats as a starting QB for the Colts would seem to indicate that. But overall, Painter and Tolzien were worse QBs.

It's kind of like comparing what I did in the bathroom to what you did in the bathroom, but Collins played worse than Painter in 2011, on the same team, with the same staff. I didn't say Painter played better, because that word doesn't seem appropriate here. But I thought Collins was clearly worse, and a bad fit for our offense at the time.

 

It was always weird to bring Collins in as the starter the way they did. I get signing him. Making him the starter wasn't a good idea. Of course, the alternative was Curtis Painter, so it probably wouldn't have mattered.

Yeah...I think any reasonable person would say that Kerry Collins was a better NFL QB than Curtis Painter (when evaluating their overall work and talent). But for the one season where Collins started any games for the Colts...I think he was a worse QB on the field. 

 

But upon second thought, I think I would actually argue that Tolzien was even worse than those two. That start against PIT in '16 (when he filled in for Luck getting a concussion) was Collins '11 bad.

 

But that start in Week 1 of the '17 season against the LAR might the worst QB performance for a Colts QB that I can recall (definitely on the level of Painter's '11 game against NO...and JB's 1st half against NO in '17). 

 

And since those two games are Tolzien's only starts as a Colt...I think he might actually get the nod here. 

 

Slow news time when are debating these QBs...lol.

Bad Coaching

No weapons that could run a route other then two injured TEs(Ertz) and Goedert.

An offensive line that had 15-16 new combos. They never had the time to gel to give Carson time

 

I think the fact you can see that Hurts had all the same issues Carson did in his 4 starts proves it was not just Wentz. If Hurts had the same games starting as Carson his turnovers, accuracy  etc would have been worse then Carson's. The only positive Hurts did over Wentz was he would take off and run for his life more. Not a winning system though in the long term. 

 

With that I am fully confident Wentz will have success with Frank and the Colts.

To further your point, some people had the opinion that the offense looked better with Hurts in the game. I agree that is mainly due to him tucking the ball and running, because here we are in the age of the "mobile" quarterback. There were countless times that Wentz ended up trying to call his own plays to compensate for Pederson's vanilla scheme and a banged up front. Combine that with receivers who can't get open (assuming they are even on the same page), and it's just an all around disaster.

A year ago we got Phillip Rivers and people were worried about the 20 picks he threw in 2019.  

 

Frank got him down to 11 picks while Phillip threw 1 more TD than he did in 2019.

 

If Frank believes he can fix Wentz than we have to trust him on that.  He just successfully fixed Rivers.  

 

Frank has earned our trust here.  

Frank did not "fix" Rivers. Rivers just had a much better Oline in Indy than the garbage oline he had for the Chargers in 2019.

 

If Rivers had an off season and preseason games he could have easily thrown for 30+ TDs.

 

Rivers had a much better oline in 2018 which was decimated by injury in 2019. In 2018 Rivers led the Chargers to a 12-4 record and a road win against Mahommes in arrowhead.

    • I have to agree. His draft order is not always spot on but his ability to evaluate talent is always in the ballpark as to what GMs agree on.  As it turned out Tobin's rant ended up being pretty lame after Trev Alberts ended up being one of the Colts all time bust. Not only was Alberts a bust, so was Tobin. 
    • I don’t know why after so many years there are so many people who still believe Kiper  doesn’t know what he’s talking about? The exact opposite is true.   Always has been.   He’s lasted more than 35 years and for very good reason.    But I’ve been reading this here since I showed up nearly nine years ago.  Some falsehoods die slowly around here.   
    • I also think a trade back with the Packers is an excellent idea this year.  With Draftek's trade chart and the updated compensation picks being added into their system both teams would benefit.  Currently the Packers have compensation picks in both Rounds R5P174 and R6P217.   If the Colts trade back with the Packers and following Draftek's trade chart can see the Colts get GB R3P92, R5P170 and R6P211.  Again GB still has two picks available 4 picks later in each Round 5 and 6.   I like the double trade with the Steelers as well.  Have also been tinkering with trades and after dealing trades with the Packers looked at the Steelers for a second trade partner as well.  With the additional picks we acquired we then trade them to Pittsburgh R5P162, R5P170 via GB-IND-PIT, and pick up the Steelers R4P124.   Then for the draft would look something along these lines:   R1P29 (GB-Colts) RCB Ifeatu Melifonwu (Syracuse) R2P54 WR Nico Collins (Michigan) R3P92 (GB-Colts) DT Marlon Tuipulotu (USC) R4P123 TE Tre’ McKitty (Georgia) R4P124 (PIT-IND) DE Jordan Smith (UAB) played both edges R6P180 RG Ben Cleveland (Georgia) or RG Tommy Kraemer (ND) R6P211 (GB-IND) – C Ryan McCollum (Texas AM) R7P243 RB Gerrid Doaks (Cincy)
