We'll have a #1 pick in 2022. :D

 

..... and if we trade this years #1 or maybe our #2 for a #1 in 2022 we'll have 2 number 1's in 2022!!!

Isn't this the exact same question the fan bases for all 32 teams are always asking?

 

What happens to our season if our starting quarterback goes down?

 

Right now the answer is Jacob Eason. 
 

We can still sign a veteran in the next few months.   Or, the likelihood if Eason does poorly in the pre-season we’d either do a trade for a backup, or, we’d claim a QB who got waived or asked for his release.  
 

There are answers to your question even if we don’t know them today.

i wouldn't be too upset to see Eason under center in that scenario. We wouldn't win the SB with any other backup QB anyways.

Yup. I'd have zero problem with it. 

If you have zero chance of a SB with another FA QB, which we wouldn't, might as well sink or swim with Eason. 

At worst, we'd have a good draft pick, and know Eason isn't the answer.

Then we keep our 1st round pick next year, start Eason, prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Hopefully it doesn't happen though (it'll usually happen to 1 or 2 teams a year, just have to avoid random, bad luck).

What if I told you...

 

This thread was all just a figment of your imagination?

 

The fever-dream of a delusional so-called Colts fan trolling the masses for reactions...

I'm not down on Eason being the backup but I'm not up on him being the backup either. We just need to see him play then make a judgement on him being the backup but not until then.

That should happen in training camp and preseason this year. Lets hope for the best!

CB trades for Nick Foles and we win the Super Bowl!  Statue goes up beside Peyton's next year. And Wentz needs a psychiatrist.

 

By the way- I think Wentz is going to fine this year, and the Colts will be Contenders.

More serviceable  backup QBs this time of year than I have seen in a long time and fully expect we bring one in. I'm hoping Nick Mullens, 16 starts over last 3 seasons, young, can contribute in  pinch if Eason isnt ready.

We will all dead then and it really won't matter what happens after that lol. Wentz will be the least of my concerns

I mean...any player can end up out for the season.

 

But I think this is partly why there is a condition to the pick. Not that Wentz is injury-prone necessarily, but it has happened twice.

 

If that unfortunately did happen again...I imagine that would be the end of the Wentz experiment in Indy. Even if the next season were to go much better...you can't really commit to a QB, who in 5 seasons, ended up on IR 3x and was benched another time. Just too many unknowns.

 

But I don't think it's going to happen...unless it's a very fluky thing.

Taylor steps in at QB and passes for 4000 yards and rushes for 1200 yards.   He leads the team to the Superbowl and beats Brady and Tampa.

 

I love these hypotheticals.

    • I agree with this completely. No one piece of information or datum is definitive, PFF grades included. The grades tell you (reasonably) exactly how a guy played, but they can't possibly provide context to indicate why he played that way.   I do think that you can apply context to contextless PFF grades though. To take your example: you see a guy getting a low PFF grade over the course of a month, or even a season, and you can take it with a pinch of salt because you know he was banged up all month or all year.   For me, I watch every snap of every Colts game every year. The number of full games I watch per season beyond that is probably in the single digits though. I imagine this applies to most fans and most fan bases. PFF watch every snap of every game every year but a lot of people still seem to value their own opinions on players over PFF's. For the reasons you stated, PFF's grades aren't perfect or definitive, but they're a hell of a lot more representative than the average fan's opinion.
    • Well like Ballard said they need to see if Fisher can come back from this injury before the extend him.  Leonard and Smith don’t have that question mark right now.  That’s why I expect their extensions done around the same time Kelly’s was last year where as Fisher will wait.  
    • No doubt.  I'm not saying they won't sign them.  I'm just saying that getting a franchise LT is more important.   You're right, they have to take into account how many years Fisher can play at a high level.  We were so lucky with AC.
    • The Colts reporters seem to believe this move is just to push hot rod and don’t seem to think he’s in real danger of losing his job but camp and pre-season can change things.  
    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
