You all have to quit buying into the "Reich and Ballard love Brissett". That is talk to make him more valuable as trade bait. My guess is they are holding onto him into preseason in case a team gets an injury and they can trade him. Evidence? The Colts signed Philip Rivers. They were also in discussions to trade for Nick Foles. They were also reportedly interested in Andy Dalton. If you "love" a QB so much, you don't look to replace him with at three other QBs from other teams. And that is just what we know about.
I don't think the Colts lose anything by letting Brissett go and having Eason and Kelly as the backups. Last year, the Patriots used Stidham as the backup. Rivers is a very sturdy player. But even if he got hurt, I doubt that either player would be less effective than Brissett. Quit throwing out the MVP talk when the Colts were 5-2. That was all defensive, running attack, and teams not being prepared. Once there was more film on Brissett, he was toast. He is indecisive, inaccurate on long throws, and too often looks to dump the ball off.
The two years Brissett was the starting QB for the Colts were two of the most painful years I have ever had watching the Colts. That was with two different coaching staffs. They Colts simply couldn't score. And the one year in between those years, Luck throws 39 TDs.
I hope I never see Brissett in a Colts uniform again. I would gamble with Eason as a raw rookie over Brissett.
Here's an interesting take on the Pats' cornerback situation in 2019 by a Pats homer.
He basically says Belichick's a genius for not paying slot corners big bucks.
