The guy we need is in Jacksonville...See if we can get Minshew for a 4th rd pick and get him learning the playbook a.s.ap...

The Jags aren't trading their backup qb with 6 weeks till the season starts.   His contract makes more sense than trading for foles though

Question is if Eason or a backup QB plays great do you keep Carson? 

We’re married to Carson thru 2022 just due to the huge amount of dead money. Now after next season, If that case were truer, then yes. We could trade him, but if he gets beat out by Eason, I’m not sure what his trade market will be

This is just crazy though. We also know the Colts knew the severity of this. I assumed it was just a sprain. The Colts and the medical information they give out is just bad. Now in the future I will also assume the worst lol

Colts didn’t say much of anything this go around as far as a diagnosis until today.

What’s crazy?

 

We traded for Wentz.   He has four years left on his contract.   The first two, this year and next are guaranteed.   The last two are not.   If he hasn’t worked out, we’d either cut him or trade him. 
 

But it’s a two-year marriage.   So what is crazy again?

My feeling for saying it’s “crazy” is we just don’t seem to have the best of luck. That’s all I’m saying. We still have a good time so I’m not to worried. Only two players in Nelson or Buckner would have me freaking out.

Heavens no. We’ve traded for enough quarterbacks already. Let’s see what we have this year one way or another, and if it’s bad enough to get us a fresh start and draft a great QB next spring then let’s just do that. We’d be out of debt on the whole thing after that draft, so hope the new guy can slide right in and hit the ground running.

Carson could be traded next year with no dead cap for us. All guaranteed money would be paid by new team.

All jokes aside Minshew can play...He really can..

He's got some "baller" in him no doubt. 

I've always thought he could be successful if the game plan was tailored around his strengths. 

He certainly ate us up. But I blame a lot of that on a very very dumb game plan (by us).

He can play but Reich and Ballard will go with the QB that will give them the highest comfort level and familiarity with the system.  They did it with Rivers, Wentz and I think will do it again with Foles if they feel the need to bring in a QB.

See that's the thing. Will he be playing the Colts D too, because other than that, he's only lead the Jags to 1-15 record..

 

I mean.. 

Overall he's 7-13 in two years. 1-7 last year. 

 

But we know Jax was a complete mess all over the place. Arguably the worst D in the league. Bottom 5 running team too although Robinson did well at times. Bottom 10 OL too.

 

So not sure we can fault him for not "leading"... 

 

Jags have made a lot of moves, and have drafted well lately, so overall the roster is getting better, or will be better.

Gee id swear Frank just told us whose show it was today.

Not sure Frank said it is Eason's show. More like Eason has an opportunity, or it's his to lose. At least that's how I took it. 

 

Lot of time between now and the start of the season to change opinions. I do think they stick with Eason though.

 

I think we'll know  a lot more in 3 weeks when they see who Wentz is responding, and how Eason is looking after 1st team reps and a scrimmage.

There was a quote I saw that he did say it. Let me see if I can find it. I listened to Reich’s interview but would have to go listen again. But he stressed he is the starter right now.

Reich goes I had a good convo with Eason yesterday and I told him it’s his show.

I will read the commentary again but im pretty sure i saw the words show. We all know its temporary, but i did see the words show being used.

Seems a lot of media want the colts to trade for Foles just to create drama.

Create drama?    What are you talking about?

 

The move would make sense.

 

Reich likes Foles. 
Foles loves Reich.

Wentz and Foles like each other. 
 

Where's the drama?  
 

The media floats the idea because it makes sense.   Chicago has three QBs they’re paying and playing.  Dalton, Love, and Foles.  The odd man out is pretty obvious.   There is no drama, and that’s not what the media is going for here.

You don’t think having the guy who replaced Wentz once and won a Super Bowl is going to create drama?

Here's what I read.

 

“The job is Jacob’s right now … and he’s gotta earn it,” Reich said, via Zak Keefer of TheAthletic.com. “But he’s in the driver’s seat.”

Could be smoke and mirrors, coach speak or whatever. That said, I hope it’s true

Hes only talking about for right now until Wentz is back. Sure it can be adjusted if his(Eason) performance is horrible. Maybe you consider a vet from there.

    • Starting on the road 2 games isn’t ideal early in the year with a new qb, I expect this team will block better by the week if healthy. The defense getting the crowd fired up at home is underrated 
    • Our offense has had nothing but issues so far and you hope as the season goes on they build continuity and consistency. We hopefully trend up. Defense hopefully settles down in coverage because so far we look bad playing weak zones. Kenny Moore has not helped at all. I will say again, no pressure spells mediocre defense weak in and weak out. 
    • Kyle Shanahan's answers to those are sweep tosses to the RB (with and without 2 RBs). You typically have 3 LBs defending the run and the SAM LB is on the strong side. The ILB and WLB typically do better East-West. So you run sweep tosses to the strong side and make sure the fastest DB and LB closest to the LOS are taken out first by combo of OL/TE before they disrupt, and expect the RB to beat the SAM LB in a foot race reading the blocks easily to get to the second level.   Kyle Shanahan did that very well vs the Patriots consistently in the first half of that SB as OC of Falcons but went away from it and got pass happy in the second half and went for more interior runs where the bulk of the DL and LBs, that the Pats had plenty of won over in between the tackle runs versus off tackle or sweep tosses that would have worked against their LBs that were weak East-West and in coverage (something Blake Bortles in the 2017 AFCCG almost exploited and Doug Pederson/Foles in 2017 SB did completely exploit), IMO.
    • Right.    Thing is Ryan has made some silly mistakes that seem uncharacteristic for him. For Wentz that is very characteristic.   So I have to believe Ryan will clear that up as the year goes on.
    • You go from Wentz and the Colts are the greatest to ever to Wentz is total trash and the worst QB ever but the Colts are still great because Ryan is one of the greatest ever, but then if it doesn't work out you will be like Ryan sucks but the line is still the greatest because we have a great LG, etc. etc.  But year after disappointing year you always go back to sad sack about the team . It's a flawed team with what seems to me a flawed plan and talent in the wrong areas that is keeping us in a persistent state of mediocrity IMO.  Not here to make you feel good about yourself if feeling good about yourself includes false positivity about this team lol.   Look.  Remaining skeptical.  KC win great.  Probably not a sustainable blueprint for victories.     When I see different evidence I will change my mind as my signature would suggest is my practice.   Relax CBE. You don't have to reply to everyone on every post.  It seems you think you do.  it's not required buddy.
