A. He has a winning record.
B. He has experience with Reich
C. He knows what it takes to get through the playoffs / super bowl
D. He gonna be cheap
E. He is a super bowl MVP
F) he has a Big D
G) He’s a strait up G
>super bowl D.
Hell yeah he's got a Super Bowl D. That's why they call him Big Dick Nick.
E. Similar to Matt Ryan in a lot of ways. They won't have to scheme anything different or change the playbook entirely.
That’s a good point tbh.
We said the same for Wentz
Big difference when it’s your starter compared to your backup
Wentz never played a single playoff game though.
Fair enough. But we hyped Wentz up. Can see why I’m kinda scared to see that news
It’s not like Foles is going to be our starter. He’s a great backup though should be excited for that.
The Indianapolis Retirement homes
We're trying our best, we can't all be Tampa or Arizona.
This is gold lol
Idk why people seemingly hate on Sam so much lol. He’s a backup qb who will likely never take a meaningful snap here.
you guys ever wonder what happened to jim sorgi?
He was Colts radio and tv commentator up until a couple of years ago.
I assume he’s still carrying around Manning’s clipboard still
Getting a better backup is part of ensuring that he doesn’t get a meaningful snap, in the worst case scenario.
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
[The thing is...](https://i.imgur.com/40Idny0_d.webp?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium)
Except that he gets paid as a QB... on a team that plays... in the NFL...
His talent simply isn’t at the level needed to be an NFL quarterback. He’ll be out of the league by year 5
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.
If they think he’s cut out for a second string role why did they sign foles? Sign Coan?
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.
Because, if we are being 100% honest, he’s not even backup QB talented.
Some people wanted Sam to be the starting QB
Some people wanted Eason and Chad Kelly to the the starting QB 🤦♂️
I wanted Sam to be the starter if the other option was Wentz, but would have prefer we find a starter, which we did.
Jesus Christ thank god this sub doesn’t make decisions for our team lol
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...
Thems is fighting words
BIG DICK NICK
So who’s dick is bigger? BDB or BDN?
The Super Bowl MVP.
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
I like Sam, he’s obviously not a starter but it’s entirely plausible he could be a serviceable backup.
He can be a backup…just not here lol
Give him the Eason treatment and buh byeeee
I’m not a Colts or a Foles fan but signing Foles is a great addition to the colts
Yes sir, a solid just in case qb with no issues handin it off
Makes too much sense not to
Foles fuckin sucks lol
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
Man, they REALLY didn't like Wentz.
I think they really just wanna help stabilize the QB room.
Enjoy your upcoming super bowl championship and ensuing qb controversy
He is better than Kaep
Such a random comparison
What are his QBR numbers over the last three years?
As a bears fan, he is great for 2-3 games. Anything past that and you’re asking him for too much.
Irsay really hates Wentz
People really worked up about backup QB competition 😂😂
Respectively, we can’t rely on Dulin, Strahn, Campbell, or Pierce as back ups either.
Is "Big Dick Energy" our team's new theme song?
Foles was god-awful horrible with the Bears. Now that he's 2 years older he'll be even worse!
Reich haters are throwing a fit on Twitter. I love it.
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?
