Well my post about Eason was mainly about a few in here just think he can come right in and start and be good. That is what I am doubting. If Ballard and Reich thought that was the case, he would've been our starter this season. Maybe that clarifies my post better. I never said Eason should start or even would be bad.

Yeah I guess my point is I don’t think the Colts thought that even if some fans do but I get what you are saying.

His best ball was in 2017 and that was a long time ago. I was always “meh”. 
 

Excited to see Eason get his reps in. 

I saw that today and it was not pretty.  Eason has a long ways to go.  I think he is several years away from being a backup.

Hypothetically lets say Eason has to be our starter. Look I don't know much about Eason regarding him being able to play at the NFL Level, nobody does. So he is impossible to rank or say things like he will be bad or good. We can only form opinions for now. Having said that does anyone think he can even be better than Brissett, just asking? You seen how this forum ripped Brissett apart and he was average as a starter, he didn't stink. He even had a couple of great games as a starter and was 7-7. If Eason starts and plays bad for 2 or 3 games I see this forum doing this School Fall Down GIF by Vanderbilt University

Why the Sad faces, cheer up and look at the bright side, at least we didn't trade our whole team away like the Cubs did today lmao . Hopefully Wentz will be fine but who knows if he will be? You guys already know the organization won't tell us anything either for a while, so be patient.

What hurts is that the Cubs are my baseball team. Talk about adding insult to injury :facepalm:.  I was having flash backs to the day Grigson cut our jersey collection after the team let Peyton go.  Oh well at least the US has Caleb Dressel and Katie Ledecky.

Yeah I work nights and woke up to Bryant and Baez being traded, I was shocked Baez got traded and Bryant was our best player and just a great guy. At least we finally won a WS in 2016 with those players, so Cubs fans don't have to hear that 108 year crap anymore lmao . I hated see Rizzo go as well. I have been a Cubs fan for 37 years much like the Colts. Anyway I was like at least I have football to look forward too, then I read about Wentz. I almost just went back to bed.

Yeah, I'm a huge Cubs fan to and this hurt me but maybe there's a method to the madness I hope anyway.

IMO if Wentz can't go, we should stick with the young guys. We are not good enough roster to be competitive with the players who are available on the market in August. Nick Foles or Andy Dalton are not going to bring us much closer to championship. Save the draft capital, give Eason and Ehlinger a chance to prove they can or cannot play... Especially with the looming elephant in the room decision next off-season.

I will tell you what would be crazy, if we get Nick Foles and he plays great with Wentz injured again. 

What the heck.

The irony alone would make it worthwhile.

At this point.... whatever... i’ll just “roll” with whoever the stick back there.

Maybe let Q try running the wildcat.  After the last year and a half,i’m up for just about anything.  Bring it on.... surprise me..... i dare ya Ballard.

Andy Dalton is with the Bears. Other than that, I agree with your post.

Wentz losing training camp will have a lasting effect all season long. I had no concerns with his ability and felt this offense would bring out the best in Wentz.  Injuries were my only concern but didn’t think it would happen this fast. Hopefully it’s an aberration and not foreshadowing of what’s to come.  Time for Eason to do his job and figure it out until Wentz is ready.

It's funny how everyone talks about how stacked of a team this is, but when a injury prone QB gets hurt its the end of the world. 

 

People are forgetting Ballard drafted 2 QBs? It's not like they're 7th rounders either. 

i agree in 2019 we were multiple missed kicks away from being 9-7 with horrible QB play with practice squad wrs rotating in  with a 19th ranked defense .   this year we are a much better team worst case scenario if eason can manage 150 passing yards a game like jacoby we should be at least competitive the first two games of the season

Yes, the sky will be falling.  And I agree, we can’t tell how good he will be at this point.  I just don’t think very many realize how far he still has to go to be back up level qb.

I wonder if he torn his planter fascia which would be a minimum of 3 to 6 weeks and he would have to deal with some pain with different shoes and tape around his foot when he comes back.  

 

 

I feel like this would be worse than season ending.

I agree. This team have been going through QB roulette for the last couple of years and now I think it is time to just let it play out. If the season goes down I flames, we will be drafting high enough to have a chance to pick up a decent long term answer at QB if Wentz won’t work out because of injuries (multiple). The team must be tired of having to integrate a new QB each new season. 

 

Having said that I would hope that Wentz will only miss a couple of games, at the most.

If Wentz misses significant time, I hope Ehlinger gets a strong look. Obviously I just hope we start whoever gives us the best chance to win. Eason is definitely superior in arm talent, no question. I watch a lot of college ball, though, and Ehlinger is a gamer. He’s extremely good in clutch situations. I really think he could surprise some people.

I came here to say this. If Eason isn't showing any kind of presence outside of being a big arm, it may just be that Sam Ehlinger pips him to the job.

I'm less concerned about Wentz in some ways (not health) and more concerned about others not getting used to him. He's going to do what he does, he'll probably rely on the run game more at the start of the season, but no one else is going to be in sync with him..

Yep. It’s more about team chemistry.

Nah. The Panthers just traded to get him and I don't see us giving up draft capital for a short term bandaid.

Wonder how much this will limit easons time in preseason games. He needs all the work but if he starts week one you don’t want him to get hurt.

 

We might have to sign a QB just as a camp body and for preseason games.

I doubt they'll put Wentz on PUP or IR if he could possibly be back in the first few weeks of the season, so they may roll with the guys they have just due to roster space. Maybe if they aren't happy with Moton, they waive him and bring in a journeyman like a Ryan Finley or Matt Barkley.

Good thing this happened now with six weeks until the first game and not at the end of camp. Job now is for Eason to improve every day in camp and be ready to start that first game.  Wentz can still help him prepare once he has his procedure. 
 

Maybe we use Sam too to create different looks in the red zone with his mobility.

 

Its going to most likely be a shaky start to the season with this team not having Wentz all TC. Going to suck if we miss the playoffs because of this. Defense needs to play lights out and no covid.

Just imagine how many guys will get hurt in practice  when they hit with the pads on. This team year after year must lead the league in injuries.

The last two TC we have actually had really good luck with very few coming out of TC. Reich adjusted things after 2018 where we had a ton of injuries before the season started.  The goal should always be to come out of TC healrhy.

If wentz needs surgery no vet is gonna wanna play a week or two and get cut , unless he is terrible 

This should be correct, but it's an opportunity for someone like RG3 to rehab the idea that he could be a backup.

Someone will want the gig if it's available. I'd rather just look at Eason tbh, he could be the future even if the odds aren't great on that front. I dig his arm and I'm guessing if he leaned on the run game and the D showed up, he could manage a W against a mediocre team, unfortunately the Colts don't have any of those to start the season.

The already very tough schedule just got tougher. With so much talent on the team it is a waste not to have a top rated QB to et them over the top. I am not saying Wentz is or was the answer but Ballard is going to have to pull a Criss Angel to resolve the QB position.

    • Just to feed off of the NFC side I think both the Saints, Cowboys, and Eagles have a good year. Saints are loaded and with a healthy roster they are pretty solid.   
    • I think we are ready to contend now.   I just don't think it will be through the passing game. The offense will run through 28, literally. Everything else should be off play action, misdirection, screens, and short crossing routes.    I think Pierce fills the deep WR need, and I think Hines see an increase in snaps significantly.    (I'll go through the needs you listed above)    --------------------------------------------------------------   WR - Pittman and Pierce (I am totally okay with this combination, I am really high on pierce and I think that his speed will force teams into more 2 high looks, which will clear the box some, I think people are sleeping on his speed)   TE - I am happy with our room. We have MAC who will slide into that Doyle role (yes i know he doesn't block at the same level, but it ain't far off). I think Granson takes more snaps at F this year. I think Woods is the perfect TE to sit right behind MAC and I see him taking most snaps at TE2. (Also happy with Ogletree as that rotational piece)   CB - I've been very high on Rogers ever since I've seen him on Deestroying's channel before he even played. His speed and change of direction is absolutely next level especially at CB. Most people came onto him after the BUF game, but I won't harp too much on all the people who will have to eat crow when it comes to him. If you check his numbers he is very good in coverage. I was sad to see RYS go, but in my mind we win that trade. CB for DE still is an improvement in our coverage because of pass rush help. I also think we see Cross play quite a bit of CB, or third safety. I am very high on Cross as well, I think he fits zone schemes perfectly, and he seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Facyson is also a good depth piece and fringe starter (reminds me of our TJ Carrie signing). I think he can see some playing time on the outside in cover 3, 4 looks.    LT - Pryor played well at LT, and recently he was quoted saying something like "the more positions you play, the less you get paid". To me this signals he is really hunkering down and our competition at LT between him and Raimann will be intense. This is excactly what I wanted and asked for in our draft want threads. I believe that compeittion there will be a very close one, and that's the best thing to have there. (Outside of a bonefied starter)   I agree we probably need another DE, I was severely disappointed with the Rochell signings last year. Is it a huge glaring hole? Negative. We still have Lewis, Paye, Ben, Dayo, and Yannick. I think another unknown steps up and at least gets some rotational snaps at some point.    Overall I think we are ready to contend. It won't look like the Bengals or Rams, but it will definitely be a potent offense. People forget we were just top 10 with the leading rusher in the league... We definitely need more production out of the pass game this year, and I think we get it.         
    • Ok I am following now. PC does have to show something this year outside of just staying healthy I do agree. Hines being a full-time WR though, I highly doubt ever happens. He will be a great threat out of the backfield though.    For what it’s worth, PC seems like a very humble guy that has had bad luck pile up. I see this being a great year for the guy. 
    • I guess my point is pretty simple... they've addressed most of your concerns, as well as mine, because they are mostly the same. I think I'm a little higher on Pittman than you are. Superstars to me are names that are reconizable and players that produce. I think Pittman has shown that he can be a number one WR, and getting to 1k yards is a good achivement for any 2nd year wideout. I won't lecture you on WR's who hit 1k in their second year and what they've gone on to do in the future.   Is he a jefferson, chase, or diggs? definitely not. Can he have a career simillar to big Mike of TB? I think so, I see ,many similarities. For me, superstar is not the top WRs. There are many stars in the league, and then there are the top 3 WRs, and only a few teams have those X factor type players.   I guess I am confused because who would you want them to sign that is better than pittman? Who available is equal? Julio Jones? A guy that can't get ahead of his hamstrings, Beckham, Landry?... I mean most of the guys available are aging veterans who lack upside. Sure, I would have had to like a guy like Landry, especially at the price he was had at. Did he want to come to indy? Hard to tell.   I think you've got a good take overall, I guess my point is that if all we are lacking is a regular vet at WR, then we really aren't missing much. I think we have time to add if we want to, I just don't see it helping immensely or really making much of a difference at all with the guys that are available.
