There's 32 teams in the NFL

 

13 should be locked in as 2022 QB 

14 are toss ups pending trades or retiring 

5 are completely unknown 

 

That basically means that 19 out of 32 teams nearly 60% of the NFL could have new QBs.

 

If you split the toss ups in half cause let's be honest several will stay with team you still get slightly around 30% new QBs

 

The NFL as a whole might look very different next year!

I think this just shows we don't have much of a chance of getting a different QB next year. And I'm not a fan of Wentz at all anymore. 

 

At least we're not the Lions I guess. 

We could go the Brady route i.e. find yourself a young QB who has some intangibles and hope you can soak him in your system long enough while he comes into his own. Solid run game and defense prerequisites here.

Or we could go the Alex Smith route where the Chiefs just loaded up on playmakers on both sides of the ball, waiting till they could make the move for the guy they'd ID'd who most of the league slept on.

Or go the Tannehill route where we bring in a veteran for cheap and see if the change in scenery unlocks what his old team thought he'd have when they drafted him.

 

It's a lot of ifs and buts.....which honestly is what the position can be about many times. Even Allen, Herbert, and Mahomes had many who questioned them when drafted. Our scouts are going to EARN their wages. Whether its QB or playmakers, they're going to have to hit at even higher rates if we want to survive. My expectations are low, i'm just going to support my best and enjoy moments. I don't expect us to contend until we find a QB....our SB till then should be wresting the division from Tennessee, i think we can do that much

Cute but Watson never suits up as a Texan ever again.

And there aren't too many good QBs out there.

 

The college game has not developed NFL QBs.  CFB teams have switched to shorter mobile Qbs to improve their own situation, but those QBs are not doing great in the NFL.

 

Allen, Burrow, Herbert will rule.  Mahomes is the exception.  And they are all in the AFC.   DOH!  And even Lawrence plays in the AFC.

 

Can't think of any young QBs on their level that play in the NFC. (Stafford, but he's not young).  Please, nobody say Murray, LOL.

49ers Trey Lance...

Tampa-Unknown with Brady getting ready to announce retirement

Jags-Beathard a solid #2

Wash-Heincke a #2

Phins-Jacoby will be back down here

Atlanta-Felipe Franks a #2

If they could even just find a Davis Mills in the draft to hold them over that would be a step up. Mills was a third round pick. He would probably have success on this team. So how can we find the Mills of this draft. 

 

What about another Carson? I recall when we had enough TJ in Pacers TJ Warren, TJ McConell, TJ Leaf

Dolphins - Rodgers

 

Cowboys - Prescott 

Washington - Heinicke

Eagles - Watson

    • I read those guys (really just the site in general), but don't recall them saying we made an offer. I do recall an article on their site though saying Landry should be our #1 FA WR target. 
    • Please read OP before voting   Roster INs and OUTs Already under contract Nelson LG Down year due to foot and back issues/surgery. Started 13/17 games Only graded 69.1 via PFF, but also surrendered only one sack Kelly OC A bit beat up early. Started 14/17 games Further regressed to 56.9 PFF, and gave up 3 sacks Smith RT Also missed time due to injury, 11/17, missing 6 of the first 7 games. After he got back, he was petty elite, grading 80.6, but did give up 4 sacks Pinter iOL Started 3 games at OC when Kelly was out and graded 74.7, while not allowing a sack (pretty impressive) Fries iOL No starts, but got a few snaps in 2 games. Graded 54.8 Added or extended or re-signed Rainmann T or ? Our 3rd round pick. Several, or even most had him going in the bottom half of the 1st round.  PFF ranked him the 18th best overall prospect, and graded him 94.6 for the season.  Age is a bit of concern, as is the small conference background (MAC has put out plenty of good NFL OL though) Elite RAS, and only 2 years at OT (which he was All-MAC) Pryor Swing T Started 5 games (IIRC, 2 at LT, 2 at RT, 1 at G), but got snaps in 14 games Graded nicely at 76.5, giving up zero sacks Not sure why we didn't see him more at LT instead of waiting till end of season. Signed a one year 5.5M contract. I think I would have gone 2 years given the cost and his swing value at minimum. Dennis Kelly Swing T Started the last 4 games for GB last season, grading at 70.4 with only 1 sack allowed 32 years old, but still solid. At worst he's a high quality depth swing T Contract details not available, but played for GB on a one year 1Mish contract last year Reserve/Future Murray and O'Donnell Murray - CFL guy with good upside but still a long shot O'Donnell - upside, and second year with Indy (PS) UDFAs French and Van Demark, and former UDFA Kemp ? All long shots that will need time if they do end up sticking Lost Fisher LT Returned from 2020 injury and just never played up to expectations. Good in the run game for the most part, but horrible in pass pro. Graded 68.2 and gave up a team high 7 sacks. Caliz (Stampede Blue) credits Fisher with 2 losses (Balt and TB) due to whiffs that directly translated to game losing strip sacks of Wentz.  Still has not found a job Glowinski RG 70.1 PFF and only 2 sacks allowed. One of his best seasons ever if not the best. Signed a 3 year / 20M (6.6M year) contract with the Giants. Modest, but well deserved. Hope we don't miss him too much Reed iOL depth Got a little action, and graded 67.2 Signed an uber cheap deal with MN for 2 years totaling 4.5M (2.25M a year) I like Glow better, but can't believe we let Reed get away for that cheap.  Davenport T depth Was pretty awful grading 45.3 and allowing 4 sacks in less than 300 snaps IIRC, signed a 1 year league min (about 1M) with the Bears Assumed depth based on aggregate of sites Starters LT - Pryor LG - Nelson OC - Kelly RG - Pinter RT - Smith Depth Swing Tackle - Dennis Kelly TBD but likely OT - Rainmann Swing iOL - Fries (now taking OC snaps) Key questions / comments LT - Can Pryor lock it down, or does Kelly or Rainmann challenge? RG - Can Pinter lock it down, or does Indy look for a FA or perhaps switch things up OC - Will Kelly right the ship, or regress further iOL depth - however you look at it, we are super weak here Nelson - will the back issues linger, or does he get back to pre-2021 form. and when will he get an extension? T depth - while the LT starter may can concern in some, the overall depth with Kelly and Rainmann added, is pretty darn good.    Article from Stampede Blue (short, simple, but decent) https://www.stampedeblue.com/2022/5/17/23068652/how-much-have-the-colts-improved-offensive-line
    • I follow the guys at The Blue Stable. Two of them are dead on with their sources. Destin Adams and Shaad McGinnis have both broke trades, FA signings, and coaching hires before the national and local media. Shaad’s brother is the dline coach for the Rams.  There are also a couple of sources out there that are credible. Shaad has also broke non-Colts stories.
