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?

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.

    • I believe today is the last day Ehlinger can be activated on goes to i.r. for the rest of the season...bears watching tonite
    • I think we'll find out what the Cardinals plans for the offseason are based on who they hire. If they hire from within (which I think they will), Cardinals will likely do minimal things and basically run it back in 2022. If they hire from outside the org, I think they'll be aggressive and sign a top SS and add to the bullpen and rotation. Mozeliak really likes Jeff Albert and he wants him to remain hitting coach so I think it'll be a hire from within. An external coach is gonna wanna pick his own hitting coach, not come in with one already picked for him.   Ultimately, I think they'll hire Marmol and stand pat. I think Shildt wanted to improve the roster and get rid of Albert and Mozeliak said no.
    • I like our chances a lot against cold weather teams like the Ravens or Bills in the playoffs.  Our strong running game and OL could be the difference in bad weather.  Just get in I and like our chances. 
    • Old guy wisdom here....   At any time, the team you follow is either moving up, moving down, or stagnant. Wins are great, but I would rather have the team losing but on the way up, than winning but on the way down. One view is the now moment, the other is the future moment.    In my view, the Colt are on their way up. They are young, with a bright future. I am actually loving the way this high character/effort group that CB has assembled is fighting through this. It is something to be proud of as a fan. The wins will come.    But as always, enjoy/hate/be depressed(or whatever you might feel) over the current moments as you will. It is each, of our choice to make. Only you can allow circumstance to dictate your own level of enjoyment.
