Why would you be happy? It's funny how long has played in IND and no backup QBs under Peyton Manning have been coveted. It's quite the opposite with Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Wonder why?

true there is a market for him, but he has played in like 2 regular season games. for a team to give up a #1 for him and then pay him is a lot for a relatively unproven QB.

I think this has to do more about coaching, rather than the QB. Also, one of the failures of the Colts FO over the past couple of years is that they haven't improved their team much and depended on Manning to ALWAYS carry the team. Their defense didn't get any better and their offensive players basically were made better by Manning.

I guess my question is...do they have to trade him for a 1st rounder? And actually that's a question that I have for the more knowledgeable folks: Can a team tag a player with a first-round tender and then trade that player for a 2nd or 3rd rounder?

Probably because they haven't bothered putting anyone worthwhile behind him.

Curtis Painter?
Jim Sorgi?

C'mon.

That's a good question. But Im sure Flynn and his agent would be pissed if he did get tagged and if no traded for him that's a lot to give a backup QB for one year.

While I believe that players often do not make coaches, there is a confounding variable with regards to Indy's backup QBs, which is the competence of the backup. Manning had talentless trash behind him.

Sure. Happens all the time.

For example, we traded a 3rd and a 4th for Brandon Lloyd who had a first round tender

because he is a smart qb, a student of the game, can read defenses well, and is young enough to closely relate to players

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

Forgive me for being lazy and looking for it or either getting off of the current subject, but what is the inside information Chris Cooley? Any talks of him being cut, traded, staying with the team? Anything at all? Health info?

I think he returns, probably at a lower price. But I'd be surprised if he goes anywhere
