If, the Colts select a QB in the 1st Rd, I honestly don’t know how they keep Brissett with that salary. Does he bring anymore tutelage or mentoring for a season, than Reich and Hoyer? Will Brissett be disgruntled knowing this guy was drafted to replace him?
He gets $16M...but the cap hit is $21.5M (he already got the $11M signing bonus...but the second half of it is prorated into next year's cap hit).
He essentially got $12M extra in his pockets for this season (even though he was under contract)...right after Luck retired. Very nice of the Colts to do that.
Where have you been for the last two weeks?
Even the most staunch supporters of Brissett (like myself) have been disillusioned over the last two games with the season on the line.
Until the Texans game I thought Brissett did a good job of throwing to open receivers and not taking chances. But in that game he missed so many wide open receivers that it was mind boggling to try and understand what in the heck was wrong with him.
Last week against the Titans he destroyed the one thing he still had going for him, and that is not making foolish throws.
The last two games Brissett has showed me that he is not mentally tough like I thought he was. He collapsed under pressure and cost the Colts the season.
I don't know anyone who defends him now.
