Brissett keeps showing himself as a fringe starting QB in the league, and it seems the more he plays the better he plays. 

 

From his point of view, he could decide to sit behind Andrew, and learn from this staff and team much like Rogers did behind Favre, and many people think Andrew should have done behind Peyton Manning. Maybe he re-signs? 

 

To me having a legitimate backup QB is extremely valuable in today’s league. 

 

Why not (if you’re brissett) learn from a potential dynasty and enjoy the ride and win a few SBs while you’re at it? Haha. Obviously Andrew isn’t going anywhere. But Brisset could become a first round pick to a needy team, later down the road. A high pick is a high pick no matter what draft it is in. Brissett has the potential to be a starting QB in this league.

Odds are Brissett will want to sign with a team who will give him a legitimate chance to start.

 

Unfortunately,  unless Luck gets hurt in the next four months,  that won’t be the Colts.

 

Brissett doesn’t want to spend his prime years standing on the sidelines.  He wants to play,  he wants to start.

if someone offers a first round pick i am sure Brissett is gone, everyone knows he wants to start.

 

Didn't Irsay himself say they would not trade him even for a 1st?  And wasn't it reported we had turned down a 2nd round offer for him?

Irsay says dumb stuff from time to time. Nobody made a trade offer for Brissett. A lot of folks here who think the Colts can trade JB for a 1st or 2nd will be disappointed.

I think someone would for a 3rd but I said that months ago. A 1st or a 2nd is a stretch I agree.

I don’t quit watching the game when JB is playing.  I have a very low threshold for watching backup QBs as I find them boring. So I think there is more to him.

 :agree:with everything you said.    I just like him.  Period.

I'm not convinced that Brissett will be traded after this year. If the Colts look toward  the 2019 season as serious playoff contenders, they may value an inexpensive good back-up QB for that one season over a draft pick.

I don't think it is Irsay saying "dumb stuff." I think it is Irsay trying to upsell Brissett for an unlikely 1st, a slightly less unlikely 2nd, or a great deal for us 3rd. I actually think it is very smart. And even though I think the Patriots lost this trade big time, if Gucci Garopp goes for a 2nd rounder, anything more than a 3rd is wishful thinking.

Stop with the Brissett is just a good backup he has shown that he can be a starter in this league and I would be comfortable if he was our Qb. Im tired of some people disrespecting him like he is a nobody this man simply came in last year with 1 week to learn the playbook and performed admirably and much better than most thought as well as myself.

 

Now with Tolzien trash can be labeled but with Brissett im not going for it not to mention NE and Belichek knows how to identify Qbs Ballard didn't trade for Brissett for no reason. Im honestly taking Brissett over a lot of starting and rookie Qbs around the league.

 

Luck took the same team only to an 8-8 record, Tolzien would have gone 0-16, and this guy comes in with only 1 week to prep and goes 4-12 half of what Luck could do Not to mention a couple plays here or there could have easily swung that to 8-8 or even better Brissett had us in almost in every game.

With 15 starts and very pedestrian numbers. I would be!

I know normally numbers don't lie but they do with Brissett. What you call pedestrian numbers do not tell the truth under the circumstances. Being sacked 50 times and hit in the other 50% every time he touched the football kind of explains those pedestrian number you bring up.

Irsay says a lot of things and it was reported Monday the second round pick offer was false.

If Jameis falters this season in Tampa Bay, I can easily see the Bucs giving us at least a 2nd for Brissett. That’s really the perfect destination for him.  Every other team has an established starter or a young guy drafted recently. Maybe the Giants if Eli falls off a cliff. Dark horse teams could be Denver, Miami, or Washington depending on what happens with their veterans.  Hell Patriots could even offer us a 2 to get him back.

6 or 7 of these QBs teams did not make the playoffs last season.

3 of these QBs are not even with the same team as last season.

Brissett had how much practice and camp time with the Colts?

Brissett had how much time to learn the play book?

You are over looking IMO. If you don't think he is good enough to be a starter I can understand that but using his numbers to judge him is not the best example of saying that.

You said stats don't necessarily tell the tale, but sacks basically contributed to his pedestrian numbers. However, the majority of those players had better overall stats and QBR. I believe JB was ranked 27th overall. 

 

Like I said, I think he's a good backup nothing more at the moment.

I can respect that.

But the fact he had no camp and a playbook he didn't know plus throwing to receivers he didn't even know does play into the factors of his low numbers and QBR rating.

I think giving him to chance to learn to be a QB on a team that can give him a complete training camp where he can be with the players he is going to play with would make a lot of difference.

One thing he has is pure toughness and commands the huddle.

All of those things add up to a starting QB somewhere in this league. I just don't believe his talents are not as good as quite a few starting QBs in the league right now.

Not trying to be argumentative, just explaining my thoughts an him.

... Except that your stats are not proving your point.

 

Just because they are in top 10 in sacks allowed doesn't mean anything. More than half your list is 13 sacks less than Brissett and that is across a 16 game season. That almost a entire sack more a game. Of all the arguments to go against Brissett (and trust me there are arguments) this is the most shallow. He definitely was effected by the worst play calling coach group and inadequate oline by far. 

 

I do think Jacoby has potential. Is he ever going to be a top 20 QB eh I don't think so. But the position is inflated and rare, so to think there is no team ever that will give a first round or second pick for him is naive and misinformed about the QB market.

If any qb is traded this offseason to a team to try and start it would be Teddy Bridgewater before JB hes already proved he can win all he has to do is show he is healthy and he could easily start somewhere hell hes better than Bortles

He’s also still under contract for 2019 on a rookie deal.  

the question is do we keep him that long and let him walk for nothing or do we trade him first

 

if his stock rises high enough it would make sense to trade him, but if we are only getting a third round pick or something it might make sense to hang onto him in case we need a backup for a playoff run

I think his biggest value to the Colts is being their backup QB.  I mean unless you like having guys the level of Scott Tolizen being the Colts backup.

Just maybe Brissett is not happy being a back up?  If he is like most QBs that enter the NFL they want the chance to be a starter. With what I seen today it is quite possible he may very well get attention. If the Colts do want to keep him it will take a contract that would change his mind. We all know what that means. Big money for a back up.

I would like to see him stay but I don't think he will. He will be traded IMO.

He probably isn’t but that’s not a bridge the Colts have to cross until the end of the 2019 season.  My point is just because you have a good backup QB doesn’t mean you have to trade him just because you might get something in return.

That holds true for this year but not next year.  If he is not resigned for a pretty big contract or not traded he will walk to where ever he has a chance to be a starter. I can't hold that against him.

Nor can I.  The Colts wouldn’t be the first team to lose their backup QB to free agency.  That doesn’t mean he doesn’t provide the most value to them backing up Luck while they have him.

Oh, he is earning his money no doubt. It's looking like Ballard fleeced the Patriots giving them Dorsett for him. That alone itself was pretty sly.

If he is end up traded for a good pick or a good player it just sweetens the deal.

Or if he’s just Lucks backup through 2019 that’s fine too.  The Colts need a backup QB and shouldn’t feel like they have to give away a good one just because they will probably lose him in free agency.  Look at the value hasselbeck provided when Luck first got hurt.  A good backup QB can save your season.  The Colts were on their way to the playoffs with him until Hasselbeck got hurt too.  Hopefully the Colts don’t need Jacoby again but if they do they should feel confident knowing he can hold down the fort until Andrew returns.  That’s not a piece of mind I’d be quick to part with unless a team just makes you a crazy offer or you think you have something similar in Walker.

Wouldn't you think getting a good pick for him would be better than letting him walk?

I know this depends on Luck being healthy but in the middle of a rebuild I would take the pick if he can't be resigned.

Not nessceraly.  Say Luck gets hurt in week 15 next year and is going to miss a game or two and the Colts need those games to make the playoffs.  I’d rather have Brissett back there than a guy the level of Tolizen and a first or second round draft pick the following year.

    • Scheme...and stubbornness to stick with it. I don't have an axe to grind with the coaching staff, but this is my observation:   I think the current defensive scheme works extremely well against bad teams with bad OLs and QBs. The Colts are able to get pressure with their front 4 and can sit back in zone and make plays on the ball. And then they get a good lead and are able to do this even more. These games lift the overall stats for the season...and it's what many people tend to remember. But it's an incomplete view of the defense.   Because as the schedule gets tougher, teams also start to adjust...and then you have a precipitous drop-off in performance over the course of the season. You also see this in-game as well later in the season (with slow starts and then the Colts roaring back to somehow win).    So which defense are the Colts?    1st 8 games (2020) - 63% completion - 206 passing yds/game - 10 TD/11 INT - 76 passer rating - 3.3 yds/carry - 6 rushing TDs   Last 8 games (2020) - 68% completion - 277 passing yds/game - 14 TD/4 INT - 98 passer rating - 4.1 yds/carry - 10 rushing TDs   It's a fair question to ask. Because there wasn't any high-profile injuries (other than Hooker at the beginning). The defense over the back half of the season wasn't anywhere near a top 10 defense.   Interestingly, a very similar thing happened to the offense in 2019 with JB at QB. Obviously they didn't have the same expectations, but they were really good earlier in the season (against bad pass defenses)...but then fell off tremendously as the schedule got tougher and teams adjusted to the offense.   So you have different sides of the ball in different seasons...with similar levels of regression.   Talent is part of it...but it would also seem to me like some combo of scheme and stubborn coaching mindset is the big culprit here.   
    • I voted Patmon and Dulin.  My gut tells me they wouldn't have kept Patmon on the 53 but inactive all of last year if they weren't seeing something they could develop.  We knew he was a development type player when he was drafted... with all the injuries we had last year, I think they would've sent him to the PS unless they were very concerned he'd be scooped up and we'd lose talent (they seemed to be fine bouncing guys like M. Johnson, Harris, etc. back and forth from the PS and those guys actually suited up on Sundays).     Then, I voted 7 WRs (at least to start).  Harris reminds me quite a bit of Hines - very explosive with the ball in his hands and can probably play that hybrid RB/WR role.  I know it'll be tough to keep 7 WRs, especially if we keep 4 RBs (Taylor, Hines, Wilkins and Mack), but I could see Mack starting the year on PUP as they ease him back from a bad injury.   Stachan has ridiculous size and very good speed.  He was dominant at the DII level, though IMO DII college FB is worse than D3 college football and he'll have some major adjusting to do at the NFL level.      @EastStreetI get your logic of letting Dulin go b/c of Rodgers' success in the return game... that said, I think Dulin is more valuable on STs as a gunner than a return man.     Finally, I voted yes on the PC question - I think we'll see him bounce around a bit this year and I hope we get to see him stay healthy for once.  The kid shows flashes when he's on the field.
    • After reading up I would say it is closer to 90% than 50% for NFL Caliber players to return, so I'm not worried about that. But you are right about how will his performance will be affected we have no idea, I think we will see him return to practice at the end of August but won't see him cleared to play till end of September/early October. 
    • Respectfully, I don't know which team you've been watching if it's not apparent to you. Also it won't totally make up for a lack of talent, but it DOES make a tangible difference. A close 4th quarter can be decided by very very little.
