Tuesday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Colts HC Frank Reich takes the starting quarterback job from Matt Ryan and hands it over to Sam Ehlinger. Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington wonder if the decision was forced by Owner Jim Irsay, why Sam Ehlinger leapfrogged Nick Foles, and if it's really part of a plot to tank for a QB in next year's Draft, much like they did years ago for Andrew Luck.

Brady Quinn: "I think they feel like this season is all for naught and they want to see what they have in Sam Ehlinger before they go back to the draft... It's either that or they also feel like they're going to be somewhere in that purgatory of the middle of the first round of the draft and they're not going to have any shot at one of these top quarterbacks in next year's draft, and so by doing this now, maybe you've got a sense of you're gonna end up right where you need to be to take one of those quarterbacks in the draft, if you catch my drift."
