Predict Carson Wentz's 2021-22 season

Too early to call. Here was Rivers numbers in 2020:

4,169 - Yards

7.7 - Y/A

TD's - 24

INT's - 11

Comp % - 68%

Team win/loss record = 11-5, made playoffs.

 

Better question would be, will Wentz do better than this? That is a good all-around season any QB or team would take. Wentz should throw for more TD's but in the other categories he may not measure up and we may not win 11 games either. Then again he could?

I think his numbers will be very similar to these. Probably a few more TD's and lower comp% since he maybe taking more deeper shots down field. Hopefully more wins, especially in the playoffs!

I would say more interceptions (1 or 2 more), lower completion percentage (62-65%) but the offense will look more in sync than last season and we will be more successful in the playoffs

I think predicting what he's going to do is a bit premature before we see who they bring in from the draft.  Assuming they get a LT and a nice weapon or two I do think he's in for a big year.  But he's definitely going to need that protection to be there on his blindside as well as more threat across the middle.

 

If the blindside isn't there then that will eat another player in the form of a TE or RB chipping or helping him out.  If the passing game threats don't improve it will be easier for teams to focus an excellent run game.  I think Ballard gets this done but really need to see what Wentz is going to have around him.  Current passing game threats probably aren't good enough for a top statistical season.

Just watched Michael Pittmans new video and it looks like Wentz was back out in California working with him. Pittman is on his way back to Indy. He has to drive because the pet delivery service that got Bosco to Cali was bad. Lol. He says he hopes to be able to charter a jet next time. I am laughing because he said all the baby stuff has been delivered to the colts facility while they were in Cali. With Pittman coming back Wentz will probably be spending a lot of time now in Indy with all the WR.

Whatever my numbers are, I think Wentz’s numbers will be even better in 2022.   The team will be better.   Wentz will be even more comfortable in the system, and so I think his stats will be noticeably better, not just a little. 
 

So.....

 

Comp %.   64-65

Yards          4000+
TD’s.               30

Int                    12

 

Next year, I’m hoping and expecting better.

If the left tackle spot is filled correctly (and I feel it will be) I think Wentz will do a fine job. Numbers? I don't have anything flashy in mind because the Colts can "run the damn ball". He hopefully won't need anything flashy.

Pretty much echoes what I was thinking before I even read through the thread. I'll wait to put out numbers.

I like the trade of getting Wentz for the Colts. I think it was a low risk, high reward move. I think the change of scenery will help Wentz, and there is a very real probability of a comeback. 
The Colts situation is not very different from the Ravens years ago. Both teams had good defenses and overall team talent, but lacked a QB. The Indy situation was obviously caused by the Luck retirement. 
That being said, I prefer the Colts approach of getting proven QB’s in like Rivers and Wentz, versus the Ravens messing with guys like Stoney Case and Tony Banks. We lost years of good teams on the Kyle Boller experiment , where you guys cut bait sooner with Brissett. 
What we don’t know is if you will fare better than the Ravens during those years, with missed Championships with overall great teams , because of lack of a QB. 
I like that Ballard is attacking the problem aggressively , without giving up the farm. I like his approach of building up draft picks, yet filling holes. Good long term strategy.

    • RBs are devalued these days. APBs if elite, can have better value than a RB2. Hines could be elite if use the right way IMO. If we're going to let a guy like Mack, who we drafted, walk and test things.... I think we'd let Hines do the same. And given that our new RB1 was very good at catching, the need for Hines isn't as big, so the leverage shifts a bit.   I love Hines, and hope we resign him. If Taylor stays healthy at RB1, and Campbell finally stays healthy at slot, I can see Ballard telling him to test the market. Hope he blows up, but that may mean he asks for too much lol.    And I don't care what Reich says. Our RBs are not interchangeable, and Hines isn't a RB1 type of guy. He's best used as an APB.
    • Yup. I would have loved to resign Houston, but reduced his snap counts. That's basically what they tried to do with Kerrigan last year, it just didn't help. I think it would absolutely help Houston.   I read this (below) article from Mock on Stampede Blue last night. It draws from Hicks and another guys. I thought it was pretty lazy lol. https://www.stampedeblue.com/2021/5/5/22420698/claims-the-indianapolis-colts-are-worse-than-a-season-ago-premature-overstated   It left out intangibles. It brought up that sacks were higher vs poorer teams, but that's the case for every DE or 3T. It also said both Autry and Houston benefited from Buckner's presence. IMO, there's only so much to eat, and adding Buckner means there's less to eat. It also didn't address the fact that we are the 2nd least blitzing team in the league, which doesn't help in the pressure category. And didn't mention that Buckner had arguably his best year ever despite having his lowest snap count ever. Might that have something to do with the DEs? lol.  Also ignores the fact Houston was still top 10 in pass rush win rate, which I believe is vid analytics driven instead of subjective eye grading. 
    • That's why I think it was a wasted pick. Weak arm, poor pocket presence. If they just wanted competition, there  are FAs available on the cheap. Heck, I'd take Hoyer who took 1M last year. He'll likely end up signing somewhere for the vet min, and wouldn't have costed a draft pick. Just a prediction. Has happened every year, and will happen again every year lol. Just part of the entertainment. I like Dayo a lot, just not this year coming off an injury with other needs.   On Granson. He's a Burton clone that doesn't block as well. Just envision Burton, or a big-slot WR. Doubt we ask him to block much.    On SE. If he makes the 53, that means Eason was a bust and total waste of a pick. Due to his lack of traits, I'd be very surprised if he made the 53.  Love Paye. Really like the long term value of Dayo but less than enthused about the pick for 2021 production given other needs and injury. Doubt Granson will have a big impact this year either. Could be wrong.    The Fries pick was OK. Low risk, low expectation. IMO, will need time to develop on the PS. Flex guy, but pretty meh physical traits. 
    • After watching the last episode of "With the next pick" I think Hines will be resigned, because he isn't a running back, he is a weapon, and a unique one. I think he'll have a nice long career as a Colt. Don't know what the future holds for Mack, but I defo can't wait to see him on the field again
