Peter King has JB third in MVP voting

Recommended Posts

That's  a bit optimistic, but Brissett has all the tools and I think he has the attitude.  So who knows.

 

Something about the way Brissett has the ability to remain calm in a crisis reminds me of some of the greats, up to and including his former mentor.  I think we're about to be very pleasantly surprised.

If he takes us farther then Andrew Luck and we don’t miss a beat there is going to be a lot of people questioning how good luck really was.

Peter King knows this offense is loaded and has two brilliant minds running things in Frank and Sirriani. JB is a good qb and could shock the hell out of people with the talent surrounding him and this scheme. Frank is going to make his job seem easy at times.

I doubt it. You won't see intelligent football people questioning Luck's ability. They'll be touting Ballard and company for building a roster within 3 years.

No doubt lamenting the what could have been if the roster building had been better at the start of Luck’s career.

The Colts are extremely high on Brissett.  People here trust Ballard and Reich unlike the previous staff.  Maybe we should trust them being high on Brissett for a reason.

I'm curious to see how Jacoby plays in the playoffs.

 

(If we make it there)

 

But I didn't like that deer in the headlights look Luck had when we faced Kansas City in the Divisional.

Nah, that guy was 33 - 15 first 3 years getting beat up.  Then those beatings mounted up in lot's of missed games 2015, 2016, and 2017. JB got beat up in 2017 too, but went 4-11. People all along back then were saying protect 12.  The Colts may have attempted, but failed.  That will be what is remembered.  How good he was isn't even on the discussion table.

I don’t think fans will think that. I can see the national narrative being that.

LOL.  We could win the SB this year and some people will wonder how much easier it would have been done if Luck was still here.

The only way to take us farther would be to the Super Bowl.

I would love to, though.
  Who knows...anything can happen this year if we stay healthy and the 2nd year kids take their big next step.  We're still young enough to be able to play above our experience expectations.

(and I can always dream...)

And part of being a fan is living that dream; dreaming that we can and will win the Superbowl. I'll live that dream with you!!

Can you imagine if JB got mvp. Something Luck was never able to accomplish. It’s fun to think about.

Boy. John Lennon was right when he said “You may say that I'm a dreamer

I’ll be happy to be proven wrong, but sitting right here and now I do not see it.

Not just King, many in the media seem to be much higher on Brissett and this roster than Colts fans seem to be.  Hopefully they are right, but I don't see it either.  People have certainly bought into Ballard, but it's much easier winning a playoff spot, winning executive of the year with a generational talent at QB than it is with Jacoby Brissett.

Let's pump the brakes a bit. I remember certain fans on here prior to 2017 saying the Colts would go at least 9-7 with Scott Tolzien as the starter.

Going by how the media is talking, several are high on Jacoby Brissett. Many are saying we aren't true SB contenders but several are saying we will win the South and make the playoffs.

Scott Tolzien is terrible, I never said that. Jacoby is miles better than him. Tolzien is in the Pagel, Painter category lmao

We've really become the media underdog darlings since Luck's retirement. We'll see if they can live up to all the hype, because slowly but surely the Colts aren't under the radar as we thought they'd be without Luck, at least in the eyes of the media.

3rd in MVP voting though? That's very optimistic.

Peter King must play Madden. Brissett is always in the conversation for MVP in franchise mode.

This is such a weird media take.

 

Theres no other team in the NFL that would be predicted that highly with their back up QB stepping into the limelight at 10 days notice.

 

If these media types had been pushing for Brissett to start all the way through pre-season or touting him as prized trade bait then I could have got that they were high on him all along. Now it just seems reactionary.

I think it's mostly Ballard & Reich hype filtering down.  GM & coach of the year candidates, if not favorites, top 5 (imo) qb retiring, everything positive that jacoby is able to accomplish (which I suspect is plenty) will be magnified through those lenses. Plus jacoby is charismatic and likeable.......easy to root for.  I can see the through line.

To be fair, Brissett did take all of the reps in the offseason (1,200 or so according to Reich). He isn’t going to be unprepared like he was in 2017.

 

Additionally, the Colts have one of the most talented rosters in the league this season and are starting the season relatively healthy.

 

I want Brissett to succeed and believe he can given the roster and coaching staff that’s in place. It’s up to him to do the rest.

Wow....Peter King will get free steaks at St Elmo's for the next 10 years courtesy of Jacoby Brissett!

This sounds like somebody trying to make a “bold” and contrarian prediction so as to stand out from the thundering herd.

 

But, that said, here’s to hoping he’s at least in the ballpark.  I’m not quite that optimistic.  But I’m also not as pessimistic as many people are — both on Jacoby and on the Colts.
