Brissett With The Hail Mary!!

Recommended Posts

Well you have to give credit to Reich for creative thinking Knowing Brissett's arm and mobility. Good defense but Went had too much time and that needs to be fixed.  TDs instead of FGs from now on. All in all not bad for game three. Houston is next at Indy.

Luck had a strong enough arm to make that throw in the past. Here is evidence.

 

 

The fact that the coaches brought in Brisset for the Hail Mary tells us that Luck's arm strength isn't where it once was. That's all. 

 

Now we have to hope that his shoulder continues to get stronger and that Luck regains what he once had.

Just because he didn't throw it doesn't mean he could not have.  Maybe the Coaches didn't see any reason to stress a still relatively newly recovered (probably still gaining  strength) shoulder on a low percentage  "Hail Mary" throw where we would not gain anything by having Luck throw it instead of Brissett.

I don't think he's specifically hurt, but I think it is evidence that they might be exercising a bit of caution with Luck. That's not a bad thing, it means he's probably still improving each week.

I'm positive the coaches would have let him throw it if there was zero pass rush.   Obviously,  in an actual game,  that isn't the case

Gotta love Andrew Luck and his mindset. He's still upbeat and positive.

He was asked about the coaches decision to give Jacoby Brissett the Hail Mary attempt and here is his reponse:

 

https://www.colts.com/video/andrew-luck-press-conference-colts-vs-eagles

 

After watching a minute of the Luck presser is what i hear him saying is this, I'm rusty and I'm going to make mistakes right now, however this team is out here having FUN playing football, IF we win great IF we lose its ONLY a football game. I am sure he wants to win just as we all want the team to win. But I really don't think anybody on the team is going to lose any sleep if we lose. 

 

Granted I really don't like seeing Luck so happy up there but at the same time its just a game.

I just took a minute to go back to the thread where we traded Dorsett for him. Here are some of the posts made when Jacoby was acquired.....

 

This is bad IMO.... on many levels. I think we will regret this one.

 

Seriously? That's disappointing. Watch....Dorsett will be a Pro Bowler in NE.

 

I don't like it.

 

Ballard with a major head-scratcher. Stupid

 

Patriots just got better. Let's do our best to make sure the champs get even better.

 

Any qb in the league can be good in the Pats system! Brissett wont show as well in the Colts system!

 

We just traded a starting receiver for a back-up QB, who will most likely suck once he gets here.

 

A third stringer QB for a 3rd yr 1st rounder. BB strikes again!

 

lol Ballard with a Grigson move...

 

There is no way Brissett is gonna be as good here as he is in NE. And there is no way Dorsett will be as underutilized there as he was here.

 

He's a product of the NE system, like Cassel, Mallet, etc. He will most likely suck once he's here. Only a sucker would trade for a NE QB, as history has shown. I guess Ballard is not a student of history.

 

People will finally see how Dorsett should be utilized. You can't expect him to catch 60+ balls while running nothing but deep routes when he's the 3rd receiver. N.E will turn him into a respectable commodity. Indy took him for granted.

 

Awful. Just awful

 

This is a stupid trade, brissett didn't even look good in NE system and that is saying a lot, Morris and even Tolzein are better than Brissett.

 

Disappointed in this.....Brissett will never play for us

 

Gotta be honest, still hearing Bilichicks' evil laughter

 

wth.. uhg sickening.

 

We traded a starting wr for a qb who probably won't see no time on the field....dumb trade

Some of you are saying because one QB has a stronger arm than the other on that alone he should be the starter??? Luck is our guy.

I'm guessing when he was slamming the football on the field after he got tripped up/sacked on that drive they should've scored, he was upset.

No question there.   Unfortunately Brissett messed up.

I agree.   All it means is that Luck is probably not 100%.   However, he shouldn't have to throw like that much so it doesn't matter.    He does need to improve though.

It might also be the coaches/medical staff worried about reinjuring the labrum with such a heave.

Luck still has a strong enough arm to make that throw but Brissett has a stronger arm. I think some people are looking way too much into this. It didn't even bother me when I seen Brissett come in. A Hailmary is a crapshoot play anyway.

I think its about follow through. Watch any QB throwing the football that far and you see their arm come downward hard. All it would take is for Luck, is to hit one helmet with his hand, causing an injury, and some of these same fans in here would be screaming....

 

"Why didn't we have Jacoby throw that ball!!! Lame coach"

I agree, why risk an injury on a crapshoot play? Others saying they don't like Reich's playcalling but yet for years those same people have been whining for the short passing game to keep Luck healthy. Really funny.

A lot of folks can throw a baseball real fast but one in 100,000 make a living at it. The same holds true with footballs and golf balls.

Speaking of hail marys did anyone see the end of bears/cardinals? The bears blitzed the hail mary and the QB had zero chance to escape and make a throw.

I like Andy but Biscuit should be the starting QB until Luck proves otherwise.  He would give us our best chance to win now.

No, Luck never had the arm strength Brissett has.

 

Why do people have to analyze every single thing on this forum?

And I don't think it SHOULD happen.  This is rebuilding year.  A lot of rookies who need evaluation - to see how they play and if they fit our system.

 

Likewise, it's a recovery year for Luck.  He's got to play games in order to get rid of the rust.  Can't do that in practice.

I just said something very similar in another thread.

    • I went ahead and submitted the trade.
    • Unless things starts to get better and we go on a win streak, which at the moment isn't likely, though we have a pretty "easy" schedule for the rest of the season.    There is one thing we could hope for this, besides a miracle, is to finish with a worse record than the Giants, and pick before them in the 2019 draft.   Why?   They need a QB to replace Eli.  Other teams that could be interested in a QB would be Denver Broncos,  maybe the Oakland Raiders and possibly Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay.   As of right now, only Justin Herbert - QB from Oregon and Drew Lock from Missouri are valued as potential 1st round picks, which makes this draft very thin for the QB class.   So by finishing worse than the Giants, the Colts could sit with a strong hand come draft time, IF - and that's a big IF, two teams would wan't to go into a bidding war for Justin Herbert and make a trade to get him.   Of course I wan't the colts to win, and win now, but I'd rather have a top pick, and preferably more picks than finish with a better record, say 5-11 or 6-10 and sit at a position in the draft, where we have no leverage in a possible trade scenario.    The Giants will be the one team to watch, compared to our own record this season, If such a scenario should play out.   Regarding the Raiders, Broncos and Jaguars, I'm not sure they would necessarily pick a QB as the Giants would, If they were to finish with a worse record than us, and I don't think that either of the Broncos and Jaguars will finish below the Colts.   Yes it's early and still 10 games to go, but whats your take on this?  
    • Pretty confident, Anderson will look like, Brady this week.   whether we win or not is another story.......   cant wait for the game though, go Colts!!
    • Going against Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, J.J. Watt... Not bad at all. Even Clark, Haeg, Slauson held their own against such competition.
    • If you're in the final three,  we made an offer.     It's not like only three teams showed any interest.    Norwell didn't visit either the Giants or the 49ers.     His agent took offers from teams that showed interest.    The only team he went to was the one whose offer he accepted.   Since we made an offer to Jensen and he signed for nearly $11 Mill per year,  there's no reason to think we didn't make an offer to Norwell.       One last thought.....   Jensen came to Indy for a visit...   typically a signal we're going to sign the player.    And yet,  he left without a deal.    He went to Tampa and eventually signed there.   I don't "The Visit" is something that's written in stone in order for Ballard to sign a player...     if Norwell agreed to terms,  then he would've come to sign his deal as he did with Jacksonville...    without a visit ahead of time.
