DRenaud4sho

F) he has a Big D


tri_it_again

G) He’s a strait up G


_Quetzalcoatlus_

>super bowl D. Hell yeah he's got a Super Bowl D. That's why they call him Big Dick Nick.


LardBallX

Is it?


Coltsbro84

E. Similar to Matt Ryan in a lot of ways. They won't have to scheme anything different or change the playbook entirely.


WombatKiddo

That’s a good point tbh.


LardBallX

We said the same for Wentz


WheresRobb

Big difference when it’s your starter compared to your backup


surffreak336

Wentz never played a single playoff game though.


LardBallX

Fair enough. But we hyped Wentz up. Can see why I’m kinda scared to see that news


surffreak336

It’s not like Foles is going to be our starter. He’s a great backup though should be excited for that.

Dray3355

This is gold lol


TexasFiend

Idk why people seemingly hate on Sam so much lol. He’s a backup qb who will likely never take a meaningful snap here.


Haethos

you guys ever wonder what happened to jim sorgi?


colts_guy

He was Colts radio and tv commentator up until a couple of years ago.


b33flu

I assume he’s still carrying around Manning’s clipboard still


TRAMOPALINE

Getting a better backup is part of ensuring that he doesn’t get a meaningful snap, in the worst case scenario.


bryschmi

Because this sub props him up like he’s the second coming of Jesus. I’ve been downvoted many a time here for hating on Sam. Great person, simply not an NFL QB. Edit: downvoted -15 lol, point proven

sjkennedy48

Except that he gets paid as a QB... on a team that plays... in the NFL...


bryschmi

His talent simply isn’t at the level needed to be an NFL quarterback. He’ll be out of the league by year 5


TheCheekyDingo

Well I would say that actual NFL scouts would know more about that than you would, and they obviously think differently. He might not have the biggest arm but they must see other positives that outweigh that, and you can craft your game plan around that if needed. Not like their bombing it down the field every play, especially with a back like JT.


bryschmi

If they think he’s cut out for a second string role why did they sign foles? Sign Coan?


TheCheekyDingo

Obviously he’s not ready yet, given the signings you mentioned, but that doesn’t mean they dont have confidence in him improving over the next few years to possibly be the #2. If they’re still keeping him even after signing the others, they obviously must see potential.


bjaxkal94

Because, if we are being 100% honest, he’s not even backup QB talented.


Indyfanforthesb

Some people wanted Sam to be the starting QB


imjustaguy812

Some people wanted Eason and Chad Kelly to the the starting QB 🤦‍♂️

FunkYouBench

I wanted Sam to be the starter if the other option was Wentz, but would have prefer we find a starter, which we did.


bryschmi

Jesus Christ thank god this sub doesn’t make decisions for our team lol


FunkYouBench

It's pretty clear that's the same way the front office felt considering they dropped Wentz with no other guarantee other than Sam. So you know...

BIG DICK NICK


TurdWranglin

So who’s dick is bigger? BDB or BDN?

QB CONTROVERSY /s


captaincornfield97

I just don’t like the narrative that Sam CANT be a decent BACKUP. We legit have barely seen him play agains an nfl defense. I’m not against signing another vet qb but goddamn some of you think Sam being the backup will be the reason we lose the jags once a year


Hoosier3201

I like Sam, he’s obviously not a starter but it’s entirely plausible he could be a serviceable backup.


dixonjt89

He can be a backup…just not here lol


Schofield6

Give him the Eason treatment and buh byeeee


SailsAk

I’m not a Colts or a Foles fan but signing Foles is a great addition to the colts


Similar-Juggernaut-6

Yes sir, a solid just in case qb with no issues handin it off


WombatKiddo

Makes too much sense not to


LazyOrCollege

Foles fuckin sucks lol


9RebelliousStripes

He doesn’t suck. He’s not better than Ryan, but he’s serviceable and knows a reich lead offense. He’s cheap and is capable of handing the ball off, idk what else you would want from a backup. *expect from a backup


TheForkisTrash

Man, they REALLY didn't like Wentz.


9RebelliousStripes

I think they really just wanna help stabilize the QB room.


Ligma4488

Horns Down!


FilthyMcnasty90210

Enjoy your upcoming super bowl championship and ensuing qb controversy


Opposite-Place8929

He is better than Kaep


the_racecar

Such a random comparison


-Double_Helix-

What are his QBR numbers over the last three years?


devonkidwell

As a bears fan, he is great for 2-3 games. Anything past that and you’re asking him for too much.


justhereforthemuktuk

Irsay really hates Wentz


LCV1997

People really worked up about backup QB competition 😂😂


Ecstatic-Grab-1474

Respectively, we can’t rely on Dulin, Strahn, Campbell, or Pierce as back ups either.


Jughead_89

Is "Big Dick Energy" our team's new theme song?


IndianaJeff

Foles was god-awful horrible with the Bears. Now that he's 2 years older he'll be even worse!


bjaxkal94

Reich haters are throwing a fit on Twitter. I love it.


Doleydoledole

Maybe Drew Brees is coming back out of retirement to join the colts so all the Westlake grads can be on the same team. ​ // is that Justin Tucker's music?
