ballard gets worshiped for no reason  .    colts have zero pass rush bad corners   no wrs  and a horrible left tackle .   ballards wentz trade will go down as being worse than the richardson trade for grigson . 

Colts have had 3 studs at corner for the majority of the season

 

Moore, Ya-Sin, and Rodgers have been an absolute plus

 

Ballard has studs at 4 of the 5 offensive line positions

 

He has one of the best defensive playmaker in the league and the top RB in the game

 

Carson Wentz is the glaring disaster on this team

Remember guys, at the end of the day this is all Ryan Grigson and Andrew Lucks fault.

Grigson certainly is to blame for us not having Luck, although that's really just crying over spilled milk at this point. This loss is on everyone associated with the Colts not named Jonathan Taylor.

Are the other areas of this team in your opinion good enough to support Wentz as a complimentary QB?

 

Also, on an unrelated note, do you think the offense would have been better this year if Rivers returned?

My point. Rivers while lacking in aspects was the better option. We actually got more productivity with an aging Rivers than with Wentz. Rivers wasn't facing stacked lines for Taylor. Rivers was decisive. Carson isn't . Rivers  would have carved them. This should have easy for Wentz. But hey. Believe what you want. We could have been in the playoffs with Rivers easy.

Would Rivers have won this game?

With this O-line performance, it's doubtful  - at lest Wentz is mobile and has escapability, whereas Philip is a statue but he gets the ball out quick and usually makes good decisions. 

 

Also the fact that he had good receivers most of the time with the Chargers, and this team doesn't currently have anyone who can get separation.

 Should Marcus Brady be elsewhere next season?

Maybe he can go and overachieve with a team like Sirianni has this season while Frank continues to underachieve with a talented roster?

Ty laughing on bench. Players don't care if blown out.

It's probably Hilton's last game as a Colt, maybe even in the NFL

 

Players laughing on the bench while losing football games is not the end of the world, don't act like it is

Luck made plenty of bone headed plays. And our O was much much different for him. 

 

Of course . I agree that Luck made bone headed plays. Even Manning had a million INTs, but when it came down to it, there was no denying how good they were at QB.

 

It’s clearly not the same with Wentz, a relatively young QB who has been traded from the team that drafted him. 
 

Wentz is a serviceable to good QB, but certainly far below what Colts fans expect from their QBs.

the defense has been bad this season the offensive line is ranked close to 20th in pass protection .   kelly wasnt a ballard pick glow is overrated got beat all year that is why chris reed was splitting snaps with him .   two guys smith and nelson ballard brought in .   you cant win without a pass rush a wrs  .  plus wentz is horrible

Every sad sack on the colts sideline will still get paid.

Colts fans probably disappointed more than they are.  Lol.  Inexcusable end to this season.  Some heads need to roll for this. But won’t. At least nothing really significant.

I'm not sure what the point of  a hypothetical like this is? Who could legitimately say? 

 

The reality is Wentz, along with the rest of the team to be fair, has been horrible.

Rivers threw 2 INTs last year and lost to Jax, with a much better OL.

In Week 1 with no training camp to speak of - alot different than in Week 18 with our season on the line.

In his first game with only the second team he ever played for, and it was a season opener no less. No, Rivers would have won this game, or at least not lost it by 20+.

The experiment is over with Wentz and Reich owned this one.  Total failure on his(Reich)part to beg  Ballard to trade for him....

Wentz still has some value, trade him to a needy QB team like the Broncos, Panthers, etc....I believe we can roll with Ehlinger with a year under his belt.

    • These are false arguments.   First, no one trades TWO 1’s and TWO 3’s at least to move up for any other position.   But you do for a quarterback.    And you know that.    Second, I don’t think the bust rate is as high for most other positions as it is for quarterback where the failure rate for first round quarterbacks is well over 50 percent.    Plus,  there are other important factors.  Every pick you trade away impacts the quality of the team you put around the QB.  Plus, you have to eventually play the guy to see what you have.  And there will be growing pains along the way in most cases.   Are fans ready for several season of missing the playoffs because of poor quarterback play, PLUS even with an improved drafting position from a sub-500 record the team has traded so many picks, you don’t reap the benefit.     Combine all those factors, the cost of the trade up, plus the high bust rate, the loss of high picks and that’s why teams like the Colts are very cautious.   You really do have to hit it big.   Otherwise your franchise is really set back.    This isn’t remotely as simple as you like to portray that it is. 
    • We played.   We traded for Carson Wentz.   That didn’t turn out as we hoped.   Anyone can make a trade.   Making a successful trade is another story. 
    • For whatever it's worth, reports from Packers camp don't seem too enthusiastic about Love and how he prepares himself, so I'm of the mind that if by year 3 you are not ready to play, you are very likely never going to be ready to play and very likely there are some underlying limitations that are showing themselves(work ethic, drive, physical or mental processing limitations, etc.)   But yeah... just like every other position in football there are risks in drafting a QB high and there is a chance he will bust. That should NOT stop us from drafting one when we don't have one in the building right now. Just like it doesn't stop you from drafting an EDGE player in R1 or a WR in R1 or an OT in R1, even though they have about the same chance to bust as a QB. 
    • I was one of the most vocal proponents of drafting Love at the time(while acknowledging he will need development). But I also was vocal for drafting Herbert. Point is... QBs bust and QBs hit it out of the park. Noone has the illusions that you are guaranteed to hit on a QB if you draft in the 1st round. There is a decent chance you will not get that franchise QB in the player you pick. But you know what guarantees 100% no questions asked that you will NOT get a franchise QB - not picking one at all. Not even trying.    Drafting a franchise QB is the hardest thing in this league. Even players drafted in the top 3 bust relatively regularly. And STILL, drafting one is the right thing to do when you don't have a franchise QB, because that's the best path for acquiring one. Franchise QBs just don't become available in FA and in trade until they are in the end of their career(and in most cases in the downslope of their career).    The interesting thing is that you don't do the same thing about every other position. Why not make a thread about "I don't want to hear any more hype of Javon Kinlaw and you should not draft DTs in the 1st" or "I don't want to hear anymore Henry Ruggs talk" or "I don't want to hear no more Jeff Okudah type talk", "I don't want to hear any more Cesar Ruiz type talk"... I can do this for every single position in the league. You know why? Because they all have about the same bust rate as QBs in the same ranges in the draft.    Point is - EVERY position busts(at about the same rate). That should not be stopping you from drafting the players you believe in. So yeah... I am afraid I will not heed to your advice here. Get ready for tons of Will Levis hype      
    • Everything doesn't have to be one way or the other. @stitches and I just had a back and forth about this. It's absolutely true that first round QBs bust more often than they hit, and I argued that. Stitches made the counter point that you cannot hit if you don't swing, and he's absolutely right. You can't be so afraid of failing that you don't even try. He also pointed out that QB development is partly dependent on your organization, and how you support your young QB.    It's also pretty silly to judge a QB who has played as little as Love has so far (and not sure why you're writing off Malik Willis already, or why anyone would be upset about taking a flier on a 4th round QB). And, to your point, if most first round QBs aren't that good, it's kind of ridiculous to end zone dance because you predicted that a first round QB wouldn't be good.
