Probably not, we shouldnít put it in his hands. He is going to throw into double coverage. He isnít young, his arm strength is dwindling. Although T.Y. dropped two passes he should have caught. Still I would rather have him than Jacoby because he at least takes chances and moves the ball.

Ok, let's not let the facts get in the way of your criticisms then.

Sure, if you're an longwinded apologist.

Wrong, I'm "a" longwinded apologist.

Yes, it is getting ridiculous.

The Colts have lost 6 straight road games to the Jaguars, including 2016 which was played in London, England.

The Colts have lost 7 straight season openers - losses at Jacksonville, at LA Chargers, vs Cincinnati, at LA Rams, vs Detroit, at Buffalo, and at Denver.

I believe there are only 3 players on the current roster that won a season opener as a Colt - Anthony Castonzo, TY Hilton and Jack Doyle.

I have lower expectations for Eason. I view Eason as a cheap QB2 for 2021 - 2023 due to his rookie contract.

Sure, he does have potential and upside and he can exceed those expectations. But there are reasons why he was a 4th round draft pick. With the abbreviated COVID-19 training camp, he didn't receive a lot of reps this off season with the coaching staff.

However, Jacob can observe and learn from two pro QB's this season. I think he can learn a lot just from seeing how Rivers and Brissett break down tape in the film room and how they prepare for game days in the starter and backup roles.

Iím not really betting on him developing. He was a nice opportunity draft. But the chances we get a starter out him are slim. The next starter is likely not on the roster.

After upsetting the Colts on opening day and then giving the Titans all that they could handle in Week 2, the Jaguars were hammered by the previously-winless Miami Dolphins on national television last night.
