Hes gotta earn the Captain title, being he was basically 2nd in command behind Luck, the Lieutenant thing fits.  I just hope he's better at navigation than most Lieutenants (Vet joke)

Maybe it’s the history buff in me, but in the civil war African Americans fought, and fought hard but none were officers..

No. Same rank, different service. Admiral is navy. General is Army, Air and Marine. For the Civil War land based army the twitter account uses, the General would be the best fit as football is a land based sport.

I think it's a little cringey to be honest. It was much more organic with Luck (and even that got old to me after a while).

Yeah, and maybe total historical accuracy is not necessary for the meme...

So we're nitpicking a fun thing because of authenticity over portrayal of a black person as a civil war officer?

 

Geez.  Lighten up Francis's.

The problem with that is that Brissett does not look like a civil war soldier.  That was the fun of Capt. Andrew Luck.  Luck sort of looked like a civil war soldier.

That was awesome but it really was the letters that he wrote and the stuff he made up based on real events that was so creative.

 

I mean, squirrel oil? :lol:

It was but his looks is what got this whole thing started.  Especially after he played Ryan Fitzpatrick and they both kind of looked live civil war soldiers.  I think that's what got this idea rolling.

I was thinking something like:

 

Dearest sister,

 

With Captain Luck resigning his commission, I have received a promotion to a commanding officer role.  I pray that I am up to the task of filling such capable shoes.  The first assignment for our unit is to pacify a group wildcats that is making noise to the Southeast.  Alas, it is a meaningless and trivial matter, and I suspect that General Reich will likely entrust it to some of the lesser experienced members of the unit.  We have received word that many of these soldiers shall be dismissed from the unit after this task is accomplished.  They will return to their farms, but if the Lord wills it, we may find several of them in our midst once again later in the campaign.   I must recommence drilling with the unit, for there are troubling reports from the west that promise the possibility of a pitched battle in a fortnight’s time.

 

Yours truly,

 Jacoby

Ok, maybe none of those guys specifically look like Brissett, so I might get your point.

That’s really good. From what I’m reading many of the Lt. Brissett posts are from different people, an open audition of sorts? Put yours out there, it’s good!

I bet it is lmao . These never get old. I hope Jacoby proves everyone wrong and plays well. If he just puts up something like 28 TD's and only throws 10 or so INT's we will win some games. Our O.Line should provide a decent running game and we have a good defense for a change. Also Reich is a better play caller compared to Chuck. The system Jacoby was in 2 years ago nearly got him killed. Reich's system is much better for a guy like Jacoby.

If anything they should change it up...go with an Obi Wan Jacoby account. At least get a little creative with it.

Whoever this is, it isn't the same.  The phrasing is much less eloquent, and the vocabulary is nowhere near the old one in some instances...

 

Not to mention the Photoshop skills.... Can't pass JB off as a civil war officer in a baseball hat....cmon! Lol

    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • RG3 would be available also
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
