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.

    • 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
    • Another great episode and good to see they were all excited with each of the picks that were made.   Now, for a nickname for our two new edge rushers...it's "Paye-Dayo" for opposing QBs.
    • Nice breakdown EastStreet! Shows why Houston would be the better vet option between the two. I also liked the leadership presence that Houston had in the locker room. He often gave the pregame speeches to fire everyone up. We will miss that…not always easy to replace the intangibles.
