Eason looking pretty good for a guy who hasn’t faced much live action in a while. 

He looks good when he can stare down and throw to the first guy.  There are literally hundreds of guys who can do this.  Otherwise he looks like he’s not close to good enough IMO.

 

His arm talent is clear though.

We can win a few games with Eason with our run game and D doing the heavy work.That's all I was looking for outta him at this point which is nice.

I actually feel like... Eason can actually be a bit more than just the guy handing the ball to Taylor. The problem is... he can be that both ways - he can make some throws that win you the game, but he can also make some plays that lose you the game.

eason is okay not great , he is going through progressions slow and not adjusting at the line .  that run play he should of adjusted for the extra defender .    i wanna see sam he is chad kelly like and will take easons job

Why? Chad Kelly didn't take anyone's job? Eason is the more gifted pro-style QB, Sam was a great college QB - there is a difference

He actually except a couple times was getting the ball out quick. Vanilla offense so your not going to see many checkdowns ect.

He only threw for 180 yards we should be 360 for a whole game so I guess that’s OK not great. He also did that with almost no offense of line help

Going to be fun to see what Sam has. Will probably play all second half.

 

Next week more offensive starters might play. 

Yea, I’m ready to get a good look at Sam.  One thing on Eason this game was he did hold on to the ball a bit long, but still had a solid half.  It was night and day on his 2 minute drill though.  If he can get the ball out as fast as he did right before the half, he’ll be that much better

Huh…. And Rivers wasn’t slow?

 

And yes, it’s the pre-season. He is playing backups, he also is playing WITH backups.

Slow processer, not feet.  Rivers is one of the quickest readers in NFL history.

 

he read War and peace one in one weekend,

 

there were many many no read plays that came out quick that makes his percentage look better.

chad kelly had off the field issues and it haunted him without them he would be a good QB .  he has that it factor that tim tebow has , put him in the 2 minute drill watch him ball out

Kelly had off the field issues long before he came to the Colts.

 

But to the best of my knowledge, there were no off the field issues while he was with Indy. 
If there were, I never heard a word about it.

I disagree with people here who thought the pass to Strachan was a drop. IMO it was a ball that got away from Eason. It was an inaccurate pass and the only reason is looked close was that Strachan is super long and managed to lay a finger on it.

I was hoping that with Rivers mentoring him last year, he would’ve pick that up from him.  I guess that is something you can’t really teach, but with experience or you’re just born with that mental edge

I don't entirely disagree BUT how do off-field issues affect the way you play on the field? Tim Tebow's "it" factor led him to 7 years in MiLB before finally returning as a TE that he should have done many years sooner.....

Bwahahaha. That’s some serious dope you are smoking. If he had talent, his off field wouldn’t matter. He isn’t NFL good dude.

My high school coach always said if it hits your hands, it must be caught no matter what! Or youd be in the doghouse!

How much pressure did you see Carolina send? I didn't see much and the way we blocked it wasn't really necessary. If they were blitzing a lot I think he'd have problems. I think those college issues with pressure are still there. I see the potential though

    • Sure, but testing isn't minimized, just because he's a convert 3 years ago? right? And he obviously performed at the highest level of his conference (All-MAC), even though it's a smaller conference. And like I mentioned, there are a ton of converted TE-OTs/OLs....   The below is geared toward TE coverts that ended up at OC (in reply to a poster that suggested TE development to OC was extremely rare). In short, TE to OL is a natural progression for many as tall skinny kids in HS and college often keep growing.    "Many OTs and iOL have TE in their history. Skinny or lean tall HS kids put on a bunch of mass and get moved to OT or iOL. Sounds perhaps weird but it's not... If you follow CFB and the draft, you might have seen some / several....    Notre Dame has one currently. He arrived in HS as a QB/LB, then moved to TE. Gets to ND and ends up moving from TE and starting at LT his freshman year. Not saying it's a norm, but there are a lot of OTs or OLs that have TE somewhere in their history. Alt massed up quicker than Pinter. Also, good possibility that Alt ends up iOL at the next level.    JC Tretter, one of the better Cs, played TE in college, moved to OT later in college, and is now Cleveland's starting Center..   Brandon Linder, Jags starting C, started out as TE, then OT, then G, and now starting C.... IIRC, Dallas's OC started out as DE and TE, and ended up on the OL, and now C.   And you have Jason Kelce, also one of the better Cs in the league, started out as a RB for Cinci, and played a little LB before moving to the OL. IIRC, he didn't start playing C till his Senior year in college   So.... Not exactly rare. Guys grow. TE to OL is natural progression. Doesn't matter if it's TE to OT, TE to OG, TE to OC, or a combo." I agree folks are jumping the shark a bit on RAS. But I will say RAS + other things, is a good thing. And most of our picks have upside in areas in addition to RAS.  The talking heads pretty much all have said his technique is bit mechanical now, but also said it's far better and more advanced than it should be after only 2 seasons. And all pretty much agree that he will improve and is only scratching the surface. NFL.com's profile said exactly the same, but most draft profiles say the same or close. So sure, he's still learning. That's not a bad thing. And now he'll get better coaching compared to MAC level.  I've never seen that rumor. Got a link? Like I said, I really don't care about age. And given the weird history/path (Austria, year off, convert), it bothers me even less.  Christensen wasn't profiled nearly as high IIRC. He also took 2 years off for mission. IIRC, most thought he'd be an OG at the NFL level.  Certainly not penciling him in as a franchise LT. I do consider him a huge steal from a prospect and draft position perspective.  Like I said, I'll be very happy if we get 8 years out of him even if only a quality backup. 
    • Reich was on the one percent better podcast today and talked about luck. Mentioned how happy he was for him that he seems to be very happy.
    • No he just jumps off cliffs from 30 feet into the water.
    • It wasn’t a preseason game where he had those big catches and third downs. He was playing and contributing early in the season then nothing. Was a healthy scratch.
    • Campbell has played 15 NFL games and averaged 24 yds/game. That is not flashing. The last we saw of him he was dropping an accurate deep pass from Wentz against JAC.  He’s also the same guy that fumbled 1 out of every 7 touches as a rookie.   He’s a whiff. And this is coming from somebody who really liked Campbell in the draft.   I was wrong about him…and so was the org. But what I really don’t get is how so many fans won’t admit it. Fans still hype Campbell, yet most had no problem dumping Dorsett after only two years (and calling him a bust) or writing off Moncrief.   Those two players were actually more productive in Indy on a per game basis than Campbell.    As for the kids, I am 100% with @Superman in that I wish they would sign a vet WR. Especially since Ryan has a ticking clock, as you put it.  But I am not frustrated. Maybe a bit confused. If Ryan is a move to truly compete, then why not get him a weapon or two that is proven? I have often seen people reference Ryan’s lack of weapons last year in ATL. But as of now, it’s Pitt and a bunch of unknown.    You say you have no reason to NOT have faith in these young guys, but I ask what is the reason you DO?   If it’s because it’s Ballard, that’s fine. But there hasn’t been nearly enough proof of concept (at WR) for me.
