The ability to leave bad plays behind you and not dwell on great play that you make is the most important quality of a quarterback.

The next play is the most important play. Whatever happens is in the rearview mirror and you move on good or bad.

All QBs are taught that from every coach and their fathers... The guy is just an amazing talent period.

Yeah, but I will say most guys are taught that in footballs itís about the next play. Canít dwell on mistakes. Mahomes is pretty special, a gunslinger who doesnít make many mistakes. But I donít think Andy Reid gets enough credit. He is the guy in his ear every play explaining what he is looking at and what he should do. Just a great match, like Moore and Manning were.

Here is an article on the shifting requirements of the QBís.

True, but the guys who canít usually get weeded out by the time you get to the pro level.

Like the guy who played for the browns and got caught with 150 lbs of pot?

Different type of weeded out.

He was a couple years too soon. If he had waited he would be just another business man.

Honestly, if Colts management is not sold on Jacoby, then I prefer to go with a veteran, ready to play QB and retain the draft choices to restock the offense (WR, TE, O-Line depth).

My preferred order:

1. Derek Carr (assuming crazy man Gruden "upgrades" at QB)
2. Teddy Bridgewater
3. Phillip Rivers
4. Jacoby Brissett

I also hope that free agency money will be spent on D-Line. There are some great choices out there at DT and DE that can help us out.

Our defense with a good 3-tech, upgraded NT and another pass rusher at DE would be a transformed thing. Our LB corps is in great shape, I like our two starting safeties in Hooker and Willis and the CBs are in a solid spot with Rock, Moore and Desir with Tell as depth.

Spending in free agency for D-Line and QB would allow the draft to upgrade the offense and we would be in a pretty good spot going forward.

Just my 2 cents.
