He's a 4th, there's 2 guys that jump to top of mind who were drafted there and are paid like they're Joe Montana Units Manning. Dak and Cousins. There's Fitzpatrick starting, he's even lower. Where was Russel Wilson picked up again?

 

Draft status matters, but once the bullets start flying, it matters less. Eason might end up being much closer to Wentz than I'm thinking some here are clued into.

I said most.  No thank you on cousins.  
 

This is far from a controversial opinion.  The vast majority of NFL QBs drafted 4th round or later never amount to much in the league.

Why would you jump to that kind of conclusion based on a previous-season game against a bunch of nobodies?   

Because the other options were worse than him against the same nobodies. 

 

Also... I kind of liked him last year in the limited snaps on defense he got. I'm intrigued with him.

Yah, keep in mind that those are the 3d stringers and camp bodies we are playing against, but still... 

 

I mean the O-line in the first half looked and played like warm camp bodies… And I’m not even actually sure Holden was warm. Someone should probably check on him.

I know Sam is going to start next week but if I was Reich I would start Eason if more starters are playing. Plus we would see Eason against better a defensive players.

Rick V would be ripping Eason if he looked this bad.

Right? I haven’t heard him say anything about Ehlingers mistakes.

As a technically accurate point most drafted QBs don't amount to anything. But some later round guys do pan out and I didn't see anything from Eason today that made me think he's.... the Sam Tevi of QB'ing and again- I'm mystified at the criticism from "touch" to "step up in the pocket", as if he it's not his first NFL live action.  

 

He's your week 1 starter, odds on. And I think with better protection, he's going to turn some heads.

I know people are gonna disagree with this take but it seems like the deck is stacked against Eason. He gets the start this week with almost no offensive starters playing. And next week Ehlinger will get the start with almost everybody playing. And all the talk has been against Eason.

In years past, teams typically had their starters in for the 1st half during the 3rd game of the pre-season.  This year has only 3 games for the Colts, so I would expect Eason to start, as Sam has done nothing to against lesser competition.

Start Eason next week. He earned it.


Yeah. I agree. Before today I was ok with the idea, but right now the smarter play looks to be rolling with Eason again next week. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Frank come to that conclusion as well this week.

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
