One name I hadnt thought about until today, was a possible long term fix at QB...... a Trade for Jorden Love

 

I was watching some talking heads today, and they said that with Rodgers resigning, Jordon Love might be available.... they said for a 2nd or a 3rd

 

The kid has all the tools.... He is young

 

It was reported that the Colts were one of the teams very interested in him when he came out.

 

One talking head actually said that the Packers traded up to get ahead of the Colts (Who knows?)

 

I do think that Love is better than ALL of the rookies coming out this year.......

 

A 2nd rounder would seem like a deal.... AND give the kid a chance to play

 

If he turns out to be a disaster......  you get your QB of the future next year in the draft

 

Its a low risk opportunity, with huge possible upside

 

 

I would like this MUCH more than Trubiski, and Love would seem to be a better option than my now second choice Winston

 

 

What say you?

Wentz was acquired in February, before the draft.  What was it that caused Ballard to turn away from Love?  Was it the positive Marijuana test?  Even though the possession charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.  It was still a positive test.  Did Ballard hesitate, and listen to Plan B from his head coach?  Who instead argued for his old QB from Philly?

And now that that experiment has failed, will he go back to the original plan?  Will he remember the positive test?  And will that mean anything today?

Huh????

 

Love was drafted before Wentz was ever traded for. Love was drafted in 2020

Doh!  You're right.  I got my years mixed up.

However, I guess you can insert Philip Rivers for Carson Wentz, since Rivers was signed in March, before the draft.  Not quite the same vibe between Rivers and Reich as Wentz and Reich, but the story is similar.

In any case, the marijuana thing still hangs there, twisting in the breeze.  Or does it?

I dont think so

 

Stupid choice of course, but at 21

 

I am embarrassed by the HIGH NUMBER of poor choices that I personally made around that age

I agree that shouldn't be held against him. 

 

I don't think that 2020 decision to not draft him should be held against him. The decision was made that 2020 was a year to win so the 1st rounder was traded well before the draft and a vet qb brought in to start.

 

However GB, even if they don't believe he has a future as an nfl starter, they essentially have a backup qb at less than 2mil a year for the next 2 years. It would have to be a very good package of picks to extract him.

    • 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.
