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

Oh man...that would just be cruel.

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.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
