I can’t be sold on Carr being a savior when he hasn’t won a playoff game in 8 season seems like just another band aid that is a little better than the band aid we have.  

Only thing that will solve our issue is having a bad season. All these bandaids just keep colts in mediocrity.  Even Rodgers would be a 1 year fix and doesn’t advance the future. I am not sold on Wilson. He hasn’t done anything since that SB.

I came away from yesterday saying I want a Burrow or Allen so bad. It makes me sick the entire situation of Luck retiring has done to this franchise. I feel bad for Reich. I don’t feel as bad for Ballard because I think he has had opportunities to fix it in the draft.

Totally agree. Andrew Luck has set this franchise way back. Drafting a new franchise Qb is not an exact science. The Colts took a gamble with Wentz and it hasn't work out so far.

9Colts best chance at getting a franchise QB is the 23 draft and they're going to need to be In top 10. Ballard needs to do whatever possible to move up in that years draft. As long as they don't go 3 consecutive he should be able to grab a top QB. 

 

I just dont see how else this team is going to get a QB before then. I dont think anyone out there is better than Wentz, and if they are, still aren't good enough to win playoff games.

This is why they probably should just stick with Wentz. Don’t give up anymore draft picks that we can use in 2023. We might have to do what bills did and trade a couple players along with picks to get that QB.

They have to realize there is no bandaid that is going to fix this problem.Giving up more picks for Jimmy g or Carr and taking yourself out of the QB market in the draft would not be very smart. We aren’t giving that much up for Rodgers who might have one year left and then your right back in the same situation. No draft picks for a successor.

Carr in our system would be such an upgrade, always feel he’s underrated.

I agree, a lot of it is about system. Jimmy G would too. Neither are great QB's but are above average to good at times. I have seen QB's like Dilfer and Johnson win SB's being the definition of average/game manager, of course Foles too. Wentz could be that guy but after what happened the last 2 weeks, I am back to being not sold. Wentz had me sold for a while though. Just like I am not sold on QB's like even Tannehill,  or a Trubisky, or a Darnold for example. Jimmy G got the 49ers to a SB by beating GB by the way so he has proven he can win big playoff games. He won in Dallas today, he had 1 mistake but other than that I thought he played well.

The thing is look how long he had been in the league. That was his first playoff appearance this past weekend.

 

I laughed at this. Jason would give up all our playmakers to get Wilson lol.

Jalen Hurts is terrible.  Will probably be out of the NFL within three years.   He's not even that good of a runner.

 

Very true. But, but, but....he is a stellar human being and leader. Sirianni is in a difficult position as a newbie HC. He can't come out and say "look, this guy is very limited as a passer and I can only do so much with him...". So he will let the Eagles self-destruct, keep his job by maximizing what he can out of Hurts until management wants to go away from him and keep him around as a backup at best.

They have 3 firsts this year. They can get a QB if they like any of them.

Yeah, we just make moves to maximize our window with those cornerstone players like Q and JT. Kelly, I can see it but things can go south pretty fast with one injury to Pinter and we will be regretting that move, plus the impact on the family like atmosphere amongst OL. 

 

Not an option in 2022, IMO.

Yes, apparently the owner and GM are at odds if they want to give Hurts another year. Hope they are in sync after watching yesterday's playoff game.

Yes, if they don't do it this draft, they will miss the boat. Even if their 3rd first round pick is from a future year for Watson or Wilson, it would work for most teams if the Eagles want to keep 1 first round pick out of 3 this year.

There will be a lot of teams wanting Wilson if he he leaves Seattle.  I was just looking at their WR depth chart. Outside of Metkalf and Lockett they don’t have too much. If colts could get one or two more WR and a TE maybe they could get him here. I remember him complaining about the oline and not running the ball enough. That wouldn’t be a problem here. Taylor would be a huge incentive for him to come here. Bur giving up first round picks will hurt finding the players we need at certain positions.

Jimmy had three huge mistakes yesterday.  He overthrew a receiver for what could have been the TD to ice the game. If anything it would have been a huge gain and got them in FG range which would have iced the game as well. 
 

He had the overthrow that was intercepted and allowed Dallas to cut it to one possession. Last one was 4th and inches to run the clock out.  He had a guy go in motion then hiked the ball before he was set. He converted the 1st down but the play was called back for a false start and they had to punt to Dallas. 
 

He is a good QB but it’s not like he is much better if any than Wentz and has durability issues as well.  I do not want that guy bc it will be the same song and dance we are doing now.  I do believe we both agree on Carr. Wish we could have got him instead of Wentz. 
 

 

*Edit*. Looked up the 2019 NFC championship game where Jimmy won against GB.  He went 6/8 for 77yds.  Mostert rushed for 220 and 4TDs.

I believe that the teams that have the better QBs have won so far.  The bad QBs went home.  You can quibble over Dak vs Jimmy G, but they are both about the same.  And that turned out to be the closest game, LOL.

Yep. That is why if we can get Wentz to work on his short passing game and mechanics with some weapons added, there is a good chance we give it another go with Wentz. Just don't want any knee jerk sentiments from Irsay or Ballard or Reich that would let them think the grass is greener on any other side, unless RW or Rodgers walk through that door, which will not happen.

I think as time goes on it has to become more obvious that 2023 is the year we grab our franchise QB. That would be the only way Ballard passifies irsay, especially if Ballard were to get more time past 2022. Thats just my perspective on it. I think you pretty much have to take your lumps with Wentz next year and then go draft.

Russ said at the end of the season he wants to stay in Seattle.

 

 

 

The only other place he would go is to the team that has given Brady fits as a D with an excellent offensive play caller inside a dome, New Orleans Saints. With Michael Thomas back and Kamara at RB, with that D, RW would do very well there, and Taysom Hill can go back to being a jack of all trades. :)

I just looked at the 2023 prospects. Way better than this year but it’s Ohio State, Alabama and Oklahoma QBs leading the charge.  All systems that besides Kyler Murray, haven’t produced a good QB yet. Article did say to watch the guys at BYU and Fresno State.

I like Jake Haener of Fresno State, he makes tight window throws and throws his receivers open, he is the perfect QB for our system, IMO, with the arm and accuracy for tight windows.

I agree that Hurts doesn't have the arm talent to be a good QB , but he is a good runner. I was reading that he has an ankle injury that may or may not require surgery

    • JMV said he was told to look for Foles to be a colt sooner then later.   Also said the Julio Jones rumors were just some talks. My guess is they want TY back and maybe that is a backup plan.
    • I have no issue with streaming, aside from the fact that all these streamers have created a segmented market for content. But it's their content, so no sense in complaining about it. I don't have to watch everything.   But I don't like live sports via streaming. I like being able to set my DVR, pause, rewind, fast forward through commercials (which is the biggest reason streamers want a piece of the pie, because then you have to watch all their ads), re-watch the broadcast later, etc. I don't like being interrupted by buffering, and then missing a piece of the action as it catches up. I want to be able to pause if I have to take a phone call, or give my attention to anything else for a few minutes. I'm not a fan of the impending migration of sports, especially NFL games, to streamers exclusively.   And I think local games still have to be broadcast on local TV (I believe???), but I'm not in Indy, so this doesn't help me for Colts games.   I tried to cord cut a couple years ago. Tried out different services for live TV -- Hulu, Youtube, Sling. They have some decent offerings, Sling even has Redzone, and it's Scott Hansen, not Andrew Siciliano, so even better. But all the limitations on how/when you watch, whether you can record, if you can pause, etc., plus unpredictable buffering and outages, sent me back to DirecTV and Sunday Ticket. Eventually DirecTV is gonna go to a streamer, sounds like Apple, and that's really gonna suck.
    • How do you come away with Moore and McBride? They went back to back, #54 and #55. We drafted Woods at #73.
    • He's still no Mike Evans, not so far.
    • Let’s not forget Pittman missed 3 games his rookie year right when the game was slowing down.  He probably would of had 800 yards if that hadn’t happened.  Those YAC yards will be back for him with Ryan like he had with rivers and Ryan will throw the jump ball much more then rivers. Now Pittman has a QB that he can do both.
