I agree with you here... and this is coming from a person who has never fully jumped on the Brissett train. I have agreed with the same frustrations everyone else has had about him: holding onto the ball too long, afraid to throw down field, not scanning the field, etc. I was frustrated because it seemed like he would stay the same exact way forever. But in this game he showed a conscientious effort to try and get out of his own way, and I applaud him for it. This loss is definitely frustrating but I blame the defensive play calling way more than anything JB did or did not do today. Even if his passing stats weren’t amazing, and regardless of our playoff chances this year, I still appreciated seeing the effort.
Like I wrote in the game day thread, whether or not he is our long term answer for QB, I appreciated the aggressiveness and the attempt to change his game up.
