Colts considering Marcus Mariota at QB

With other positions needing attention and this being a down year for QBs, I hope you’re wrong.

 

We’ve drafted 2 later round QBs in recent drafts.  One is already gone and the other is an afterthought at this point.  So draft one this year at 42 and hope to catch an inside straight?

 

That doesn’t sound like a plan, it sounds like grasping at straws.  We need to use those picks for other needed positions.

Yes.  Because Ballard flies by the seat of his pants.

No one EVER said "all chips in" meant anything more than buying in And committing....on the part of players who got flaky as hell last year....Wentz was aloof as usual, and the players talked their way out of darn near all off-season work.... That's what ticked Irsay off enough to make that rant.

 

They canned Wentz because of attitude, and lack of leadership ability....not because they demanded more Free agents....or demanded a skill upgrade at QB.  That's just what some of you wanted to hear, so you did.

So all the players "talked their way out of darn neat all off-season work" and Wentz is the only one that takes the fall for that? 

 

I don't give a crap what Irsay said, hes a blow hard and that just wants to keep the fan base invested and buying tickets. But to dump Wentz for MM or.... I mean who really is out there that is a better option at this point than Wentzt? Collectively, for 15 out of the first  17 games Wentz played above form. I think if you took the teams record and his stats before the Raiders game most would say he  played above expectation. No one played worth crap in the final 2 games, not just Wentz.

PFF don't count, they don't dictate how we can get to the Super Bowl.  I think CS is the real deal with his arm strength, accuracy and hopefully his leadership.  I say draft him, compete with SE and go from there....

Hey, I was firmly in the keep Wentz for his contract and add weapons camp, look at my past posts.... Caught plenty of flack for it over the last few months....lol 

 

I'm saying what I THINK caused the rant, and what it was about.  The off-season accountability, or lack thereof, I don't think was key to Wentz trade in particular

I would think if Marcus were our target at QB he'd be signed by now.

 

Our entire off-season is predicated on the QB decision and which way we continue in FA and Draft.

 

 

Ballard typically always waits for the first week of FA to pass before he starts signing. The first week is where everyone gets overpaid. Once the players and their agents lose leverage, then you’ll see us start signing guys. Mariota may not be until next week.

While that is true I still believe whatever direction we go with the QB decision determines how the rest of the off-season goes......and we likely won't add higher profile pieces until we have our QB. If they only spend money i would guess we'll go heavy skill positions in the draft. If we trade draft capitol then we will go heavier on skill positions in free agency.

Part of that is definitely  true. Right now we probably can’t get any wide receiver or TE (granted all the good TEs were tagged) to sign here because of our QB situation. But the thing is, there’s a possibility that may not be figured out until the draft, so that may rule out FA at the skill positions for us. So maybe a WR or TE in the draft.

There are some good ones in the draft and now that LEO is probably not a draft priority we can even spend multiple picks on those skill positions because I'm pretty sure there will soon be an announcement of a FA corner to replace Ya Sin.......

I imagine there’s a bunch of defensive guys who would love to play for Bradley.

    • Did you get to see the game? KT had sooo much bad luck on soft hits
    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
