  2. Sorry pal, must be a British thing. ‘Please turn over’. Meaning there is some additional info on the other side of the page, or there is another page to read etc. I was just being foolish.

  5. Yup. Has zero to do with race, and everything to do with his ability to read, progress, etc.. Good guy and all, just not very good. Wasn't really that good in college either. He's likely better off in another scheme to be honest where there is less focus on reads and progressions. Chud's O was probably better suited for him as it's more throw-to-spot, than read, progress, and make a bunch of decisions. But to bring race into the discussion is silly given most of the top QBs in the league (Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, Prescott, Watson, etc.). Nobody cares about that.

  6. Brissett was given every opportunity to prove himself to the coaches and GM and he failed. He's a good back up QB and that is where he is at. He had 2 seasons and was given a huge pay check. He is an average starter at best. Bringing race into this discussion is stupid.

  8. I had the pleasure of looking at coaches film in April and May when NFL.com gave out free access. That film against Dallas in 2018 had me sold for him played DE. 2019 was a wash for him because of injury. 3rd and long I have no problem with him playing inside at those moments. He needs to rotate to keep Houston fresh. Turay is coming back as well. The depth we have on defense will come in to play this second half of the season.

  10. I agree with the OP. Look at last week, only 371 yards through the air. Joint best in the league. Pathetic, none of our catchers can catch.

  13. After the game vs Cleveland, on NFL network, I believe it was Charley Casserly that was reciting how well Taylor is doing running the ball vs how poor the Colts running game is when Hines or anybody else is in there (Mack excepted), and his point was he simply does not understand what the heck the Colts are doing NOT sticking with Taylor and giving the budding star all the opportunities possible. Today, again 5 ypc average, but on only 12 carries, plus 4 rec. for 55 yds. I completely agree with Casserly. I find it to be, well, just bad that Taylor is not being given a

  16. He was playing at a high level the last half of 2019, and has been injured/sick to start 2020. He's still similar in stats (completion % allowed, passer rating allowed, yards allowed) to Moore. So if you're done with Rock, are you done with Moore too?

  18. There's likely to be some good bridge guys available this off season, so JB will have some competition even in that space. Some really good FAs, and also several likely available for trade. I wish JB well whatever happens. Happy to have him back as a backup too, just at a reasonable price.

  19. The answer to your question lies within more questions that I will give to you. 1) Does Brissett lead us to victory after being 21 points down ? 2) Could Brissett make the TD throw to Pascal who was covered in the end zone, but Rivers threw him open by throwing to Pascals opposite shoulder away from the coverage ? 3) Does Brissett make the beautiful throw to Doyal over the outstretched fingertips of the cornerback into the end zone where only Doyal can pull it in? Be honest.

  20. Lack of downfield throwing... Have to click the link, but oh how some of you have forgotten. Again it’s because he doesn’t fit the narrative. He is African American so some of you wouldn’t understand. He isn’t given the same opportunities. He was playing through an injury after week 9 of last years season.

  21. Yeah he never had any business at DT. Idk what Ballard was thinking with that. He’s definitely making plays this year. He might be able to be a long term rotational piece if he keeps his current pace up.

  22. That's for sure! On October 18th, 2015 Philip passed for 503 yards with 2 touchdowns and no picks at Green Bay, but the Chargers were stopped on the Packers' 3 on 4th & goal with :15 left, and lost by 7 points.

  25. I see where you are coming from to some extent... but don't fully agree. I think if you ask just about anyone who follows football and has for a long time to name the top 3 QBs ever, both Brady and Manning will be mentioned. There are 23 QBs from the modern-era in the Pro Football HOF. Several of those guys were not the best at their position at any point in their career. Troy Aikman won multiple superbowls on absolutely loaded teams, but he was never a first or second team all-pro and was only a 6x pro-bowler (Rivers has gone to 8). Aikman never lead the league in any major pa

  26. Yeah, there are quite a few people that would not be in the HOF based on my criteria.

  28. https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/football/players/game-log/2019/1877247/jacoby-brissett/ JB didn’t regress and I’d have to disagree with your take here. Deon Cain drew PI’s when JB targeted him. We also lacked depth at WR last season. The deep throws where there. Defense knew after week 9 he couldn’t step into his throws. JB couldn’t push the ball downfield. Had guts to play through an injury. Still through 6 games he out performed any of the QB’s mentioned in this thread. 11TD and only 3INT. He also had multiple games of 300 yards. In 2019 we were also one of the worst teams for droppe

  29. I agree - one of the best owners in sports. I get the feeling he wants to see the Colts win as much as some of the fans like me who have lived and died with the team for 50 years.

  32. That's the first time I've seen Buckner get pushed to the ground. I love that he came back and gave some pushback of his own!

  33. I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd been in Zoom (or Teams, Webex, Skype, etc) meetings where people didn't realize their PC cameras were on. I had to tell one guy that it would be a good idea to put on a shirt (believe me, no one wanted to see that). At first he was giving me this look, then he realized everyone could see him.

  34. Oh, you're right about Buca. It started out as a lark but became a tradition. We come in from different states so it's more about the comradery than the quality. You're also right about the good ole days. I hope they're coming back.

  35. Honestly, I see us going all out on offensive weapons this year in the draft. I think at least another WR or two, probably a T for ACs replacement

  36. I agree . IMO . he'll be signed as a back-up. He could start due to an injury but that's true for a lot of guys. People often talk about him being a "bridge QB." Yeah , he does work for that but how often do you see a team actually sign a QB like him to start for a year or 2 ? Most teams have a QB better than Brissett or are drafting high enough to draft a QB that would start maybe by mid-year. Brissett was really fortunate to collect over 20 mill for 2 years. Compare that to Tyrod Taylor's 2 year 11 mill deal with only 6.5 guaranteed . SD can just cut him next year with no cap hit.

  37. I'll go ahead and say it definitively. Jacoby will not be on this team in 2021. We will be in one of two scenarios: They sign Rivers to a 2nd year and Eason is the backup, or They bring in another QB and Eason and that QB duke it out for the starting job (like, say, Sam Darnold) I think they're doing everything they can to put Eason in a position to succeed. He's got the raw talent. He just needs to learn to play at this level. I think there will come a time where they tell him, "Go ahead, kid. Let's see what you got." I hope he is able to make the most of it.

  40. After today, I know Rivers can lead us back from a big deficit. He threw for 371 yards and 3 TD's. Today was a huge win, I don't care if someone says well it was the Bengals. Let me tell you, Burrow is really good. TY and Luck had perfect chemistry so that can mess with anyone's mind but TY needs to forget those days and focus on the now. Yes we all know Luck was awesome but Rivers isn't chopped liver

  44. The more he plays the better he gets and the more he taxes the opposing defense. We just don’t take advantage of that. He’s JAG in our offense. He isn’t as important to our offense as any of the top RBs in the league are to theirs. And that may be something that is actually holding us back. I absolutely abhor the way Reich uses our RBs. Terrible management. There’s no reason Taylor shouldn’t get 80+% of the carries on offense. None. Wilkins should only see the field once a game unless he’s in there WITH Taylor. Hines should get no more than 20% of the carries in a game.
