And because of Hines use, that lead to Pascal's first TD. 2 defenders followed Hines to the flat and left Pascal wide open. Brissett and the Colts showed good patience and they were ready to take the shots down field when they presented themselves.
You have set a precedence now Chad, you start a thread, the Colts follow your suggestion and it works. Now, this week Chad, you need to start a thread about the D playing a game for 4 quarters instead of looking very good one half and like a bunch of first year pop Warner players the other half.
Luck with his higher ceiling probably could get away with INTs, just like Peyton. Brissett, because of a lower ceiling, plays within his limitations without taking too many chances and thus keeps us in games, and if the support comes through in the form of the running game, D and ST, his efficiency will be magnified. If the D comes out flat like the first 2 drives for the Falcons in the second half, Brissett can only shoulder so much, IMO.
That is why, we will be an underrated team even if we continue building our D and OL but we will win more games if we play more complete games in all 3 phases. Ballard will put his money where his mouth is, on building a complete team that is not dependent on the QB, no matter who it is and it will become more important with Brissett.
Yah I know you can’t compare them one to one exactly but I think a lot of people either overated luck based on potential or under rate brissett because he wasn’t some stud prospect. I hope as the season goes on we can bump this thread and update it so we can see how brissett compares to luck. Obviously I would rather have luck but I don’t think he’s head and shoulders above brissett either. I can’t wait to see how the season plays out either way.
