There was overwhelming majority of posters asking for Rodgers to be cut, in the wake of the betting news and discussions.

 

Now that the Eagles signed him even to stash him for a year, do we see a reversal of opinions? 

 

Do the Eagles have to pay him for the year? If not, what is the disadvantage of not keeping him?

What do the Eagles lose for signing him? Did the Eagles give him a signing bonus? I wonder why other teams did not try to sign him.

Credibility. The guy was an * who threw his big pay day chances down the pooper.

Nothing, I don't think Eagles have any disillusion that Rodgers will be available this season. He'll be suspended all year, in fairness to what Calvin Ridley had to serve. If anything, Eagles are betting that Rodgers will be reinstated next season.

 

Rodgers made a mistake, and he apologized publicly and I think he deserves another chance. He may not get a big pay again unless he does really well after getting back, but he should be given opportunity to prove he can follow the rules and play good football. 

 

Eagles will probably lose Slay and Bradberry next off-season so they're probably getting him to have a look at him in practices next year when he's allowed back in the league.

If he's reinstated a year in, guess who now owns his rights?

Colts cut him. I think they'll have the rights if Colts didn't take any action but they released him, which is why Eagles have been able to sign him. 

 

I don't think NFL will reinstate him this year in fairness to all other suspensions given so far, so there won't be any such concerns for this season.

I wasn’t one of them.  I didn’t get not putting him on the suspended list.  It wouldn’t cost them money or a roster spot.  The Colts FO or Irsay had to be pi ssed about something specific. Either what he bet on or not disclosing he was under investigation.

Yeah.. there was so much maligning going on just because he bet on games, without any actual facts on minute details of the case. 

 

If he had passed on inside information out of Colts facility or bet against the team or teammates, I can understand the anger but that much hostility towards that guy without any credible information?

 

As you said, if he had done something that betrayed Colts and that forced Irsay or Ballard to cut him outright, that's fair.

    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz. 
    • I think most important option is missing in the poll : No One.   I think it's a fairly average QB class that it's okay to not like anybody enough to draft him. There's no one QB that Wows you with their pocket passing Caliber or pure athletic traits or good combination of both. It's like a tweener class of all those abilities, having lop-sided combination of above said skills.    And, this poll, rather than forcing to pick one QB, needed that extra option to express staying away from this QB class.
