Yeah, have NEVER been a fan of Mel Kiper, and now Todd McShay is bad too. As a whole, I am not a fan of the sports talk scene; podcasts, radio shows, and even the TV shows. I watch on occasion because Lebatard's dad can be entertaining, and Kornheiser is ok too, but Andy Griffith on TVLand is much more fun to watch. 

And now some guy named Bucky with his own.

Please, tell me you actually do not believe this statement?    They BOTH are brutal QB development 

I think the fact that both Pace and Nagy are still here means they are all in on Trubisky... for one more season. If that’s the case, please, please, pretty please address the offensive line issues.

Bob.  What part of "me and you" do you not understand?  LOL.

It says they are “laser focused on winning in 2021... .” Does that mean they weren’t in 2020? If they weren’t, why were they retained? If they were ... look at the results. Again, why were they retained?

Don't know.  It's a clown show.

I would really like to know what the plan is. If George/Ted gave them 1 year to at least make the playoffs then they might as well have fired them. If they have a few years to turn it around, then I would prefer they draft a QB and not leverage 1st to 3rd round draft picks for someone like Carr now that Wentz is off the board. I may be crazy, but I was OK with at least 2 second rounders for Wentz. I have a gut feeling he's going to turn it around and I'm now looking forward to watching the Colts offense next year.

I am a firm believer a lot can be said for the Christian relationship Carson Wentz and Frank Reich have had in the past.

I am also a fan of Jalen Hurts, but I am not 100% sold on him......yet, being THE franchise QB.

I am very close though...like 95%.  I always thought he got jacked around at Alabama.  He was the transition QB from ground and pound, let our D beat the living hell out of you, to air it out and outscore your opponent.

He did quite well at OU.

The guy is a winner.  A GREAT teammate.  A true coaches kid.

Good move for the Colts....who knows; a fresh start may be good for Wentz. the Colts did not really give up much to get him either.

Ballard is really something else. He knows how to run a team. Only way that conditional pick will end up being significant is if Wentz delivers, which in turn is worth giving up a 1st or 2nd round pick.

Yeah, I'm curious to see what the Eagles do. You're timeline with Hurts is accurate. He definately played in 3 different offensive schemes in college. I'm just not sold on him as well. His personality and character are what you would want in a franchise QB.

Story is now on IndyStar.com:  https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2021/02/18/colts-trade-carson-wentz-adam-schefter-reports-and-colts-confirm/4490603001/

The Colts have found their quarterback for the near future.

And if Frank Reich can rebuild Carson Wentz from the shell of himself that took the field in his final season in Philadelphia, Indianapolis might have found its quarterback for longer than that.

The Colts traded a third-round pick in 2021 and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-round pick to Philadelphia to get Wentz, the quarterback Reich developed Wentz into an MVP candidate during his first two seasons with Eagles. Adam Schefter first reported the news. 

When Reich left Philadelphia to take the head coaching job in Indianapolis, it seemed like he’d left the Eagles a franchise quarterback to carry them for the next decade, and Philadelphia agreed, signing Wentz in 2019 to a four-year, $128 million extension that included $107.9 million in guaranteed money.

....

While Wentz’s contract was an albatross for the Eagles, it’s manageable for the Colts. Wentz will count $25.4 million in guaranteed money against the salary cap in 2021 and $22 million in guaranteed money in 2022, and he’s still only 28. If he can regain something close to his 2017-2019 form, Wentz might be the long-term solution the Colts have needed since Luck’s retirement.
