We need to draft or bring in another QB to compete with Brissett.  If Brissett is your starter for more than 2-3 games, forget about it.  You're not going anywhere.

Situational QBing is a huge problem for Brissett. Red zone, 3d downs, etc... What Luck excelled at last year is what is failing us this year offensively.

TY pushed the route up field rather than crossing the face of the safety. I blame him. 

Yeah why did he do that...is he just worried about getting smoked by the safety so he left his team out to dry? If so that’s pretty gutless.

A receiver can’t deviate from his route at the last minute like that...  TY wanted no part of going over that middle...

If we are in a situation where we need another QB to compete with Brissett, then we're probably not going to solve those problems by having another QB to compete with Brissett.  If Luck can't come back next year then we had better be in total rebuild mode, otherwise we will be on track to becoming the Browns in the long term.

Picked off! Man we got no points. 16-3 at Half.

It appears that was Hilton's fault all the way. You saw where Brissett was throwing the football to a spot Hilton should have been. I like his upside but Hilton drives me nuts he is not and probably will not ever be a super star because his head holds him back

That’s exactly why he did it.  JB & TY don’t have the chemistry where JB knows TY will push that route up the seam at the last second.  He threw it like he would continue on his path.  If he had done so it would have been a great throw & catch.

I thought we were trading Brissett for a 2nd rounder ? I thought a 5th or 6th but was smartly corrected.

Luck is just much better and a closer. Nothing against Brissett, as I have said before he is a Great backup, could be a Good starter with more experience? With Luck don't you think we wouldn't of won or held on to some of the leads we have had in some of these close games. When healthy Luck is easily a Top 10 QB in the league. Cant lose a guy like that and replace him with a backup QB and expect the same results.

In most scenarios I would agree with you, but this is a lost season at this point.  I wouldn't mind seeing them take some strategic risks (not risks that increase the risk of injury) to maybe give themselves a chance.

I disagree completely we got shut out last time we played them. Get points first and then work towards being competitive for heavens sakes

I'm not getting into that.  A second rounder seems high to me, but whatever.  The point is that he is not the long-term solution at QB.  He is a serviceable backup, and that is the extent of his abilities.  If Luck can't come back next season, then it is time to strip this team down and build it back up around another QB.  That QB is not going to be Brissett or anybody that is brought in to "compete" against him.........at least I hope not.

TY is the best WR we have and Luck trusts him the most. He isn't Great but Very Good. Today he isn't playing well but he is the least of our problems in the future.

Total rock bottom. Wish I could like this years colts team. But I don’t for the most part. They are the least likable team since Dickersons last year.

TY was open behind Jalen. A good throw there and it’s a touchdown to TY.  Yeah, maybe it was meant for TY to bring it back, but I think a good QB makes the adjustment and throws the TD.

...and I argued pretty aggressively last time that getting shut out doesn't matter.  If you get shut out or you score 3 points, who cares?  That doesn't matter.  The only thing that matters in terms of score differential is whether you win or lose.  I don't give a flying flamingo about playing to keep the losing score closer.  That is pointless.  "Well, we lost, but we didn't get shut out this time."  Who cares?  Does going for it on 4th and 1 mean that you are probably going to lose by more or even get shut out if you don't make it?  Yeah, but you're probably going to lose if you take the 3 there, so who cares?  The Colts are a team now that has to take some strategic risks to even have a reasonable chance at winning.......and even that is not going to guarantee a victory.

When they are going for 2 and known to throw jump balls to there 6'7 TE why not switch your 5'11 SS with your 6'3 Safety?

That's a chemistry thing, and that's forgivable.  Keep in mind that Brissett got thrown into the fire a few games into the season and didn't get training camp with these guys.  There are going to be differences in interpretation like that (if the receivers are given the freedom adjust their routes based on their interpretation of the coverage).

I don't think anyone came to play today did they?  Looks like they have all quit.

NO, Pagano is the  coach for 2017. Irsay is going to keep his word but the wrecking ball comes out in January

    • Either one would be fine, but I would  go with  Baker Mayfield .  It's a good matchup, and I don't have much faith in Wentz and Eagles receivers. He struggled on MNF, and this is another division game, where Washington could be spoiler in the NFC East.    I like Perriman; he got a lot of snaps in the last game due to Evans being out. Winston's injury needs to be monitored, though. 
    • What ever QB we draft, Reich will know who the best of the two are between JB and who we draft. If Reich feels like the rook is better than the rook will start IMO. Regarding Jones, Giants aren't that good but he does have arguably the best RB in the league when healthy. I like Mack a lot but imagine if JB had Barkley.
    • LOL.... NYG drafted a QB that was supposed to sit a year. And they had far worse of a team (OL, etc) surrounding him. That didn't go as planned....   All this "Love needs to sit a year", and "JB needs to start another year" is what you'd like to happen, nothing else. And you're right, we don't know what Ballard or Irsay are thinking, but I'm guessing you don't have an inside track on their plans anymore than any of us. There are lots of reasons you wouldn't want a new QB sitting behind a QB like JB, so lets not act like it's a no brainer.   And why do we need to slow down on discussion of drafting out future QB... It's a discussion board. If you don't think that's what we should do, fine it's you're prerogative,  but not sure you need to tell others to "slow down".... The overwhelming majority of folks are ready for the next chapter to begin.    
    • Herbert interest me. Sure he can be looked at as a system QB, but I think all the tools are there
