Ok outside of Pitt, Qb's with the big money the teams defense is bottom half of the league. Meanwhile the teams with the QB's on rookie contracts are top 15

When you payout that much money you send the message to the team, fans, everyone we're gonna put up points you are commiting to offense even the guys on that team know it's his team and we rely on him to win the games they're just along for the ride and hoping it leads them to a big contract next time because of the exposure that the 100million dollar QB got them because that's what fans wanna see

Well, geez. We should just trade Luck for whatever QB is cheapest, since, you know, coaches and QBs don't matter to you.

If they can do it, how are they doing it? What can the Colts do to replicate that model to the point that they can have a franchise QB and an elite defense?

Luck has to stay healthy and every pick has to be on defense and yes in 4-5 years we can have a top 5 defense

You can't build a defense in 4-5 years. You have to be patient and wait at least 12. 14 if you want to really do it right.
