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

I doubt the Jags want to help the Colts with their predicament.

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.

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.

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?

“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.

    • I'm more than happy when people point out the good we're doing. I'm not good with people using it to discount the bad and making excuses.   I'm generally a perfectionist and look for flaws to correct them, because that's how you get better in sports, business and life in general.   You're saying because I'm not satisfied with us being 2-4 that I should just leave. Sorry, not sorry - not going anywhere. I'm on the Irsay bandwagon here - I want titles. If you're just waiting for the NFL to start handing out participation awards you're in the wrong place.
    • I wanted to rewatch the game before I posted anything on this because I came away with the feeling we didn't do much outside of a handfull of big plays on offense and the same on defense.   So, final thoughts...   Offense Good to see some explosive plays!! But... Outside of the 2 big plays to Campbell and Hilton, Wentz didn't have a good day at the office. 11/20, 223 yards, 2 TDs to 9/18, 120 yards, 1 TD without those plays.  Of course if we didn't have to do all that much outside of those big plays. Also, we're still seeing examples of him holding the ball too long. Taylor is a beast and I just don't get the idea of only getting him 14 carries. He's averaging 14,5 carries per game with a low of 10 and a+ high of 17. It's ridiculous. Seemed like Hines was only in the game to tire the defense and set them up for Taylor. That's a shame I think. He's one of our a biggest playmakers in my opinion. It was great to see Hilton out there again! I honestly had written him off as done, with last years performance and his injury this year, but he proved me wrong. Campbell is a bust. That has been my opinion for some time now, but I really thought he was going to prove me wrong with that 51 yard TD. Then he got injured... again. Best ability is availability. He isn't. Mo had a good TD catch, but should've had another. His second drop I blame Wentz for - bad placement. Had a great block on Taylor's 2nd TD. Pittman had 2 solid grabs and a few good blocks down the field but not much outside of that. Fisher sucks. He's not far removed from an achilles injury, but he still has a long way to go. Hoping he'll improve because right now it's looking like Ballard crapped the bed on this one - Leno is doing great. The rest of the Oline is putting in solid work right now and it's hopefully only going to get better with Q and Smith returning... even if Smith didn't play his best up until his injury. Defense Loved Leonards reaction after the first play being a false start on Houston.  I hate this defensive scheme with a passion. We gave up a 67% completion rate and 243 yards to a rookie and 124 yards rushing. That's concerning in my book. Still, we showed up and made some important turnovers, because without them it could have gotten ugly.  Happy to see Paye on the field again and with an interception of all things - I'm not accepting anything else, that call getting turned over was a joke even if it ultimately benefitted us. Still not nearly enough pressure from our Dline - they didn't have Tunsil on the field. I needed to see some sacks from our DEs. Ya-Sin is having a good season so far. Good for him and us! Willis had a good game, I think, as did Leonard, Moore and Okereke. Fantastic interception by Rodgers late in the game. Overall a lot of good things and something to build on. Now we just need to do it against the good teams and especially against the Titans.   Lastly, we beat one of the worst teams in football, comfortably, and we should have if we want to get to the playoffs. We have to beat the good/great teams if we want to get anywhere IN the playoffs and we haven't been able to for some time now. We had a good game against the Ravens up until we collapsed in the 4th quarter, and they just manhandled the Chargers. That's encouraging and heartbreaking all at the same time. I would like to see us beat at least one of either the Bills, Bucs or Cardinals this year, but we still have a long way to go to be one of the elite teams.
    • 17 games, 7 playoff teams, weak division   There's a long way to go.
    • Wentz looked damn good from the pocket.  He threw some dimes.  The TD Mo Allie dropped was the definition of a perfect pass.
