Broncos Beat Writer: Teddy Bridgewater to Indianapolis Colts. Guy obviously knows nothing.

“I see Teddy as a perfect fit for Indy,” said Patterson on the Mile High Insiders podcast. “A one-year, two-year deal with Indy and try to see what they want to do there. I think it makes too much sense not to happen”

What an all time dunce. Classic beat reporters throwing it at the wall. I wouldn’t give this too much thought. I mean “see what we want to do here”, you gotta be kidding me with that mess!! In case the league isn’t on notice yet. THE COLTS ARE IN WIN NOW MODE. We just built the team around an empty hole waiting to be filled by a quarterback that understands the opportunity there is to win with the roster Chris Ballard has built. This type of Quarterback seems to be showing up more and more often in the NFL these days.

We got some DAWGS just waiting for an Alpha QB to lead the pack to the promised land. I’d even be able to look past the cringe factor of Mr. UNLIMITED. PLEASE GOD JUST GET THE COLTS AN ARM FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!!!

While this does seem an all time dumb move to me, I’m not paid the big bucks to make this decision and I’m smart enough to know just how dumb I am, but this just doesn’t jive with me. I will say Pat McAfee backing up this thought is a little disconcerting because I believe Pat is still very familiar with the top brass in Indianapolis. I could see him hearing a lot of noise before it’s made public… here’s hoping Pat doesn’t know anything on the matter

Fan Duel

And here’s hoping our boys get the help they deserve before my whole future is a series of “What If” reflections on the squad we current have. Get these guys a ring now, because we can’t keep this squad forever waiting for the most important piece to present itself.

These Dawgs deserve a dawg leading the offense!!!

Here’s hoping Ballard already has a plan in place, because I am really tired of having to scramble for a QB year after year. Stability is great everyone, but stability is needed at more than general manager and the head coach position. Indianapolis is in their window of success and need to capitalize this off season and free agency if the Colts don’t want to be looking back on this time and thinking, we should have gave it all for a quarterback. Either way, I’ll continue trusting the process of Chris Ballard and the Colts’ front office.

With all the hypotheticals out there currently it can be easy to spin out and go crazy as a Colts fan this off season. Without some major moves by the Colts in free agency and trading draft picks honestly, they will be dead in the water. All those who say run it back with Carson haven’t watched him over the passed 3 years of his career, and haven’t been watching the games at all I guess. That can’t be the solution. Sending only positive vibes to the front office though. Let’s go get some more dawgs this year!

A look at the Aaron Rodgers destination odds from Vegas, and the Colts’ place in those odds.

Green Bay Packers-250
Denver Broncos+350
San Francisco 49ers+800
Pittsburgh Steelers+1200
Indianapolis Colts+1200
Tampa Bay Buccaneers+1400
New Orleans Saints+2000
these are the odds currently available on Draft Kings

We are looking to land a whale here in Indianapolis. Looking at these odds, I actually gain some confidence. See whenever I actually picture Aaron Rodgers as an Indianapolis Colt it seems like a pipe dream. If the number 12 were to be resurrected for Aaron, I may finally be able to come to terms with the way Andrew Luck left us (Yes it still hurts!!! We should have 2 rings with this squad and him under center! So Yeah STILL HURTS!!!). It looks like Vegas is more than convinced Aaron Rodgers will remain in Green Bay. The fact the Denver Broncos are favored so heavily over the other options doesn’t make much sense to me personally. It’s a new day in the NFL. There’s a new generation of QBs on the scene and no single division is that more apparent than in the AFC West. Do you think Old Man Rodgers wants to face both Justin Herbert and Patrick Mahomes II twice a season. If he can dictate where he’s going at all then why would he want to head there. That ain’t it chief.

Looking at Indianapolis’ odds gives me confidence that Aaron Rodgers the Colt is an actual possibility. I genuinely felt, before really looking into the odds, that Pittsburgh would be a potential landing spot that actually made sense for all involved. Seeing the Indianapolis Colts have the same odds to land him gets me very excited. A lot of the times I overthink Indianapolis Colts odds or news and assume I’m seeing stuff align because I want to, almost wishful thinking on my part. But, wishful thinking that I can identify and often times I discredit the real stories because I convince myself its too good to be true (My teams across all sports have hurt me in case you can’t tell).

So confirmed. Rodgers to Indianapolis has potential legs here!!! Tied for 3rd in odds (other than GB again) is a very nice place to be sitting in my opinion. Just looking at each of the teams on this list I get confidence in knowing that anyone looking at those names and asks themselves who’s a QB away from winning a Super Bowl, I think Indianapolis is the no brainer. Jonathon Taylor’s run game will open the field, while an amazing offensive line is blocking, and Darius is leading the stout defense. What’s not to love there… I guess the wide receiver situation. Pittman is still growing into a stud in this league, but if we could go get Allen Robinson and have a legitimate deep threat, I don’t see how he couldn’t want to come to Indianapolis.

Last thing…

How crazy is it that Jordan Love will be taken in the first round and then never even receive a shot for that team? What a garbage move that pick was. Should have let the Colts get him Green Bay. I mean on the bright side, how important is it to hit on your first round picks? *sarcasm*

Aaron Rodgers calls off wedding… because Shailene didn’t want to follow him to Indianapolis?

A source close to Rodgers confirms to PEOPLE that the NFL star, 38, and the actress, 30, have split, just over one year after he made the surprise announcement that they were engaged. “It was an amicable split; it just wasn’t working,” the source says. “They’re very different people with busy careers and there were obstacles that they couldn’t surmount. They will remain friendly; there’s no bad blood and no drama. It just didn’t work out for them.”

People (Karen Mizoguchi, Steve Helling

Oh lawd… the drama. Aaron Rodgers and Woodley have called off their engagement. Looks like true love doesn’t exist after all kids. With so many questions about his future, Aaron had figured that he had at least found the woman he’d be with in that future.

Sadly he did not I guess.

So what happened? Well I feel like the engagement call off is always promted by a big fight then the inevitable “What are we even doing here?” Aaron has a lot of decisions to make coming up so, with his future up in the air, I like to think that maybe it was a shift in where he’d like to play come September. Maybe he had laid out a plan where half their football season would be spent in sunny San Fransisco, close to most of her work in Los Angeles. But could a change in destination have led to a fight that couldn’t be mended. What would piss off Shailene so much? Possibly a move to Indianapolis when San Francisco is where she had been told the whole time, could lead to a dissolving of the relationship. So I will say it here first…

Aaron Rodgers will be an Indianapolis Colt.

Now this is all a scenario that may, or may not have taken place. I can’t imagine that Shailene would be too excited about a move to Indy right after she had put her time in in Green Bay. Anyone not from Indiana, doesn’t know what we have here. Personally, I’d like to keep it this way. But, Indianapolis HHAASSS to be the most attractive roster for Aaron, I mean come on. The Indianapolis Colts are loaded compared to the rest of the league, they just lacked a solid option at the single most important position, quarterback.

I don’t see any reason, that if Aaron Rodgers is committed to trying to cement his legacy as not only one of the best but one of the all-time greatest quarterbacks to ever lace them up in the NFL. The difference between best and greatest, SUPER BOWLS! No single team is a quarterback away from a dynasty more so than Indianapolis. So I think this breakup may be a great sign of things to come in Indianapolis!

I mean come on, Imagine this backfield behind the Colts offensive line (should they be able to stay healthy). Jonathon Taylor and Aaron Rodgers are so much better for each other than Aaron and Shailene were. So all in all Aaron, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because your on your way to Indianapolis

The Colts Need to Cut Carson Wentz and spring for Kyler Murray, Russell Wilson, or Aaron Rodgers

I’d say it’s about past time that the Carson Wentz Era in Indianapolis has come to an end. We are at a crucial impass. We must win NOW!!!

There’s just no winning with Carson Wentz at the helm of the team. The Colts find themselves in their WIN NOW window. Unfortunately, we can’t take the take for Carson to figure it out or “get comfortable”. He ran Frank Reich’s offense for years, if he doesn’t get it by now, what are we even doing here? The Carson Wentz era is coming to a close, and it absolutely has too. We just saw teams make the playoffs that have franchise studs under center for any team that was making any real push. The Colts are a Super Bowl team without a Super Bowl Quarterback right now. So I just wanted to look at 3 options that are making themselves ever more apparent and each day.

Russell Wilson

First let’s discuss Russell Wilson. Russell Wilson is a proven gamer, that has stepped up time and time again in huge moments. He is a top quarterback and an absolute master of his craft. A proven Super Bowl champion playmaker should be a no brainer right? Well personally, I don’t want the Indianapolis Colts to take on such an odd duck. I mean anyone who has ever seen Russell Wilson describe his inner persona “Mr. Unlimited” as his hero (I’m pretty sure both the multiple personas and the inflated sense of self here both lean towards sociopathic in my mind) knows how unsettling this guy can be. Someone that odd has garnered a reputation for being a little off from the rest of the league by now in his career. It may be one thing two work with that when you’ve drafted it and have built the entire locker room around that. I just believe that a lot of these factors make it hard for Russell to be able to plug into a championship locker room and click with the guys.

It’s a no for me dog.

Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers is not a pending free agent. He and the Packers agreed to a restructured contract last summer. In that deal, a void year was added for 2023 – meaning he would be able to enter free agency and be ineligible for the franchise tag after next season. The contract was also structured so that the Packers would save nearly $20 million against the cap if Rodgers is traded before June 2022. Based on that language, many have speculated that he will seek a trade this offseason.

-Logan Reardon, NBC SPORTS

This one is ACTUALLY getting interesting. Aaron Rodgers to Indianapolis sounds like a shitty day dream I may have had the year we ran it with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. Love the heck out Jacoby, he just isn’t “THE GUY”. Every team in the NFL is looking The Guy. Aaron Rodgers in one step about “the guy” he’s entered the realm of “That Dude”. “The Guy” can get into your franchise and make you a competitor, “That Dude” can win a Super Bowl with any team so long as he’s on it. If Aaron Rodgers goes to the Indianapolis Colts, the Colts would immediately become Super Bowl favorites in my book. Yes, we would need to address a deep threat option in the receiving corp, but we would be absolutely set for a Super Bowl run.

What’s helping the Colts in the Rodgers race would be their location in the AFC South, meaning that the only way the Green Bay Packers would have to face their spurned QB in a playoff game would be in the Super Bowl. This also helps the Broncos or anyone else in the AFC in their bid for Aaron Rodgers. I wouldn’t really be getting to wound up by Aaron Rodgers to Indianapolis rumors, Rodgers is notoriously “hollywood” and I wouldn’t be surprised if following his time in Green Bay he would want to overcorrect to one of the largest markets possible. I will say, the fact that even ESPN reports this as a possibility makes me fear for the all too familiar let down sure to come my way.

Kyler Murray

While Aaron Rodgers is by far the best option in my opinion, especially for a “win now” team like the Colts, I think I’d rather have Kyler Murray. Yes, Aaron would give us the best shot at a Super Bowl right now, but if the Colts were able to go out and land Kyler Murray than we would be a Super Bowl contender RIGHT NOW, with a franchise QB for the forseeable future. Whatever team gets Aaron Rodgers will most likely be dealing with a Manning to Denver or Tom Brady to Tampa Bay vibe. Both awesome scenarios resulting in Super Bowls for those teams, but both short in tenure. With Kyler Murray under center the run game could explode behind the combination of Jonathon Taylor, the offensive line, and now the scattiest quarterback out there.

Any way you boil it down. It’s time for everyone here to move on. Unfortunately, I don’t know what this would mean for Carson Wentz, as I don’t know how many other places he will get serious starting QB knods. If you couldn’t take this Colts team to the playoffs, there is a serious problem. One that MUST be addressed.

For the Shoe,

-Burke
