9954, I know it sounds bad having to "rebuild" and whatnot, but at the end of the day we will never win anything of significance with Matt moore as our starting QB. In today's NFL you need a legitimate franchise QB to consistently contend. Blowing and then picking Barkley, even though a rebuild will happen, wont be the worst thing. It'll take a few years to get into the thick of things, but it will happen if we have a good QB.
The colts have cut damn near the whole team. Next year they really arent going to be very good. But they have the most important position potentially filled with an elite QB for the next 13 years. Its all good. Its about the long term, but continued 9-7, 7-9, 8-8 years. Id put a significant amount of money on the Colts winning a playoff game before us starting today.
I think at this point, the best case scenario for us is to have Trent Richardson fall to us and Cincy really wanting him (because they didn't get Michael Bush) and then us trading back with them. Trading back we take Weeden who could (in theory) compete immediately with Moore. Any other QB we would have available to us in the draft other than Weeden wouldn't compete with Moore this season. This draft is deep at WR so a good one that fits Philbin's scheme could be had in the second or third.
Sounds like Bell is getting cut. I understand the move, but I still don't like seeing a fellow Kentuckian go.
Enjoy your burrito.
I'm calling it now, we are targeting Weeden in round 2, or maybe after trading back up into the first for him. We have been linked way too much to Tannehill, and we haven't even had a mention of Weeden. I'm betting we are going Floyd or Decastro in round 1, and then grabbing Weeden with our next pick...
Hey guys, shameless plug here.
If you could take a quick second to follow this link and vote for me in March Madness, it would be much appreciated. It's a close race with JCane at the moment. Much appreciated my friends...
