I suspect a team in search of a QB (who still fantasizes that he could be an NFL starter) will take a gamble on him since, worst case, they can use him in a "Wildcat" package or line him up in the backfield/slot a few times a game. Miami? Seattle? ...and never rule out Al Davis!

i think its a real possibility that the colts draft him as our backup qb situation is absolutely awful. he could learn from peyton and develop mechanics and skills needed to be a quarterback in the nfl. we could either use him as trade bait as he develops better or we could make him the heir apparent to peyton and if he doesnt pan out it wouldnt be that big of a deal.

What bothers me in the whole thing is Roger suspending Pryor five games. I realize why Roger did it though. He has to stay close to his free farm system so he does the NCAA bidding and nails Pryor.

I just think this might create a slippery slope. Is the NFL going to start punishing players who are caught after they leave the college? What irks me is the coaches are going to get off with nothing. I hope nobody in this country actually believes the nonsense Pete Caroll says about not knowing what was going on. He knew what his star player did and knew the NCAA was going to come down. So what does he do? He runs to the NFL and takes the first crappy job available to get away from the NCAA.

Yet nothing happens to him and the media leaves him alone.

The NBA is even worse. Kelvin Sampson left the IU program in shambles and got a cushy assistant job in the NBA right away.

I was born in north central Ohio 55+ yrs. ago. In this state you grow up being a Buckeye or leave the state. As far as Pryor is concerned most people are glad 'he's left the building" so to speak. I've been a Colts fan since Baltimore. I've also read MANY

articles on Jim Tressel this past year going back to when he coached High School ball.

After doing all this I called my brother a liar when her said tressel is working game day

for Colts. Due all NFL teams has this position filled? If not I can only imagine the put-

downs said about Caldwell. Please SOMEBODY watch Tressel closely so he doesn't leave a

scar on the Colts like he did the Buckeyes, one I don't think will disappear for many decades to come. Thank Respectfully Submitted; DPepsi99

    • Actually if you look at the entire picture since the divisions got re-aligned in 2002 we would be the only team out of the 4 teams (others being the Texans, Titans, and Jags) that have even been relevant. Those other teams have never even played in a SB (Titans did in 1999) but I am talking since the AFC South was formed. We have been to 2 SB's and won 1. No other teams have ever been scared of the Texans, Titans, or Jags I would be safe to say but when we had Peyton that were scared poopless to face us and even when we had a healthy Luck teams were scared as well. In 2018 when we won the playoff game at Houston with Luck that showed everyone that we were the better team when healthy. Houston was loaded that season with Watson, Hopkins, Watt, and Clowney and the game was over at halftime with Luck healthy.   As long as we make the playoffs it doesn't even bother me that we don't win the division. A lot of teams that win their division stink it up in the playoffs. I would rather make a Title Game or a SB than win my division if I had to choose between the choices. 
    • Based on this, we can actually get the Browns' 1st rounder No.26 and pick No.91 for our pick No.21 if we move back just 5 spots, I like it     I have read Rich Hill's articles on PatsPulpit. He is good with numbers. Of course, there will always be a Patriots bias on a Patriots SB Nation article, especially when there are gray areas for interpretation but the quality of his numbers he puts out is a good one. Similarly, I like Scott Kacsmar articles too.    Ultimately, in trades, two hands need to be willing to clap based on a value agreed. The rest is pundit and draft day fan speak fodder.
    • There have been times in the recent years, where the secondary looked confused and out of position. I hope this coach can eliminate those mistakes. Maybe it was just that the players were young or not used to playing together. 
    • If he plays bad and we start something like 1-4, this forum will implode. Rivers was good this past season for a 38 yr old, Luck was very good when he played, Peyton was a top 3 QB of all-time, who knows what we have here in reality? Can Wentz play at least as good as Rivers did or will he be like JB = a .500 QB?? 
    • Drafting Montez Sweat would have been Sweet instead of trading down. Hopefully, Rock and Banogu develop and show something in 2021.
