I think it could be close. Titans are a good team but they aren’t the Chiefs. They are in that second group with the colts and Browns. Colts just need to take care of business and whatever happens in this game helps us. If we lose it doesn’t matter what happens in this game.
I doubt he’s going from roughly $11 mill to the vet minimum. He’d likely be willing to take a pay cut, but that far down I think is hard to see. Also, there has to be incentives to give him a chance to earn some of that back.
I get that, and the short yardage “Jacoby” package has been pretty effective, save for Week 1 in which nothing seemed to work. I thought he would be a great fit in Dallas after Dak went down, but I credit Ballard for not just giving him away, perhaps Jerry Jones wasn’t willing to panic & overpay, especially with Andy Dalton on the roster but when he got hurt as well, I’ll bet Jones would’ve preferred another option at quarterback to rookie Ben DiNucci. All that occurred before the NFL trading deadline, and I think the Cowboys could be running away with their sorry Division had they acquired Brissett.
With that said, he is terrific insurance here in the event that Philip couldn’t go, and his presence saves the Colts from having to rely on a rookie QB in the event of that disastrous circumstance.
