I think he's full of crap.

So we’re all clear on this: Polian thinks a backup quarterback is an incredibly valuable asset to a football team. He would never pass up a chance to pair a good backup like Foles with a good starter like Carson Wentz.
Quote:
So why, when Polian had a first-round grade on Brady, did he pass on Brady multiple times? After all, in the fifth round, when Brady was sitting there with a first-round grade (supposedly) on the Colts’ draft board, Polian instead took an offensive lineman named Matt Johnson, who never played a down.

If Polian had drafted better, Manning's neck probably doesn't get nearly as wrecked and you likely see him win 3 SB's and never leave the Colts.

Given that a healthy Luck probably means the division title and playoffs for a team that is woefully inept in overall talent...you can bet your ass they are hopeful.

I know what you intended with the post but I am playing devil's advocate.

Man, just imagine if he can't throw or even IF he can the first time he's hit hard. Not looking good.

Yeah the ESPN Rams writer said he thinks Watkins gets tagged.

I still think he can breakout in the right situation, but if we get Cousins, and hold onto DT/Sanders, no chance he's back.

I think he's back either way. Special teams, light WR market, really good blocker.

I agree, the right situation being Canada or the Arena League.

He should be fine. I had the same surgery and now I am back to playing hockey again. Taking hits and everything else just fine. I had a 2 year recovery and am still trying to build up strength in it.

My gut says Indy is right, he will be back and fine.
