Brissett Extended (Merge)

This makes no sense what so ever.

It makes total sense. 

 

Sin him up now for for at least 3 or 4 years. If he balls out this year, we have him on a great deal for another 3 years. If he is mediocre, we still have him under contract as a good back and let Hoyer go, then look for the new answer. If we extend him now it won’t be bank breaking.

Yep, plus if he balls out this year he's going to be really expensive in the off-season.

This is not surprising to me at all. I expect it’s going to be more money then what people think.  Reich believes he can be the guy. I trust them. This team is two close to start over.

He should send his agent Peter King a bonus!

you can't give Hoyer more money then Brissett. Also what options do we have? We're not bad enough to be in the market for Tua, Fromm, or Hebert. Their going one, two, and three

Not bad. Doesn’t lock him in long term but he is now a rich man.

Brissett is an average mediocre QB...he is not that good. If I am wrong I will gladly admit it, but I don't expect much from Jacoby this season, Colts are starting to look like the Cleveland Browns from about 3 or 4 years ago!

way off. go back and look at the terrible roster from 2017 and compare it to now. We don't need Brissett to be Luck for us to win

It's nice to see they're "putting their money where their mouth is".  I was wondering how much of their expressed confidence was "coach speak" or damage control in the wake of Lucks announcement, but if they're willing to extend him before the first snap of the regular season it indicates their faith in him is genuine.  This is good news.

Honestly, I think you have to wait until he plays a few games this year to say that.  This is a better team and better coaching staff.  If he whiffs this year I think you would be shown as right.

Can you explain why you think this way? What part of Jacoby's game does it seem like he is an average Quarterback?

 

You might be right, but me personally, I see the perfect frame, a strong arm, good mobility and incredible toughness in him. The questions for me are with his touch on short throws and accuracy on intermidiate ones. If he can answer those two questions, I think we'll be fine at QB.

 

Also, the Browns of 4 years ago would have LOVED an average QB haha

This is great for both parties. Hecwill obly be 28 at the end of this so if he balls out he will get another bigger deal. If not we aren’t locked in. It also isn’t so much where if it doesn’t work he can’t go back to backup status.

I just fear we are preparing ourselves for sustained mediocrity. 

Why not see what we got before locking ourselves in.

And guess it doesn't matter, since it's just been announced as done

We are only locked in for two years. That doesn’t mean you can’t drsft a QB to sit behind him a year if things don’t work out.

One contract extension CB will not have to worry about during the off season

He is going to be very busy this offseason handing out those deals.

because if you risk Brissett having a good year, then instead of the deal he got now, we're talking a contract in the 25+ range a year

Did you miss the Colts from 1984 until 1999

I typed that, before seeing that it was a two year extension. Looks easy enough to get out of, and is not long term. I'm cool with it.

Solid deal. 

 

Great for both sides.

 

Was hoping that $15m was going to be the top number

Im sure it is a new deal. Not 2 year extension. Meaning it is in effect for 2019 and 2020. Be a FA in 2021?

 

Maybe though. Cant imagine their paying him $1m this season still.

I became a fan around 95, like most people in Indiana...

Which happens to be about the time I really started paying attention to football, since I was 12

It’s also small enough where he could go back to being the backup of it doesn’t work out. I am glad this got done before the season started.

Possible it is actually three years if you count this year. He is getting 20m Guaranteed so I could see his base salary staying at 2m.

I base it solely on what I have seen from him since he has come here...I'm not saying he is terrible, he's average, he misses a lot of easy targets, he lacks confidence and pocket awareness at times. I can pull up the stats but basically I just don't see him leading this team to the playoffs! I was not impressed with his preseason performances at all. 

 

Colts are giving him a great opportunity and showing an incredible amount of confidence in him, I just don't see it. I don't see that kind of potential! Combined with the Hoyer signing and it just seems like the Browns of a few years ago....I really hope I'm wrong, but I am deeply disappointed in what I am seeing right now. I see the Donnie Walsh Pacers, competitive but not able to take the next step and compete for championship for the next decade!

Considering Dak wants $35M/year, I think this is good deal.  Brissett hasn't been to the playoffs like Dak, but paying your starting QB $15M/year is a bargain with the going rate of QBs in today's NFL.

Have to wait for final details. If so that's a solid deal for us.

 

3yr $32m deal. 

 

Doubt that is the case, but possible.

    • People don’t realize it’s not what you say it’s how you say it. That’s what I mean. Believe it or not I don’t mind people talking about how he needs to improve or what he is doing wrong. I think it all just needs to be put in more context. There are a lot of factors that goes into the lack of passing yards. It’s not all JB. Is some of it. Yes. But there are lots reasons. There is no doubt the passing yards needs to improve. That goes on the entire offense. Not just JB. He needs to improve and so do the young recievers. Ebron needs to catch balls. There is no one reason with the lack of pass yards.
    • I don’t think drops this year has played a huge difference. The only game where it might of made a difference was the raiders game.  Which was kind of sad because winning a game without TY would of been really impressive for him.
    • This. Why would a poster be in trouble for expressing an opinion?
    • Not sure what you are talking about. Trouble?
    • It'll be really interesting to see how consistent our run game will be week to week after teams begin to focus on it more. The Raiders particularly did a really good job with their gameplan against us. Personally, the more carries Wilkins gets as opposed to Hines, the better off I think they'll be. If it wasn't for Wilkins we wouldn't have gotten anything going against the Titans. Houston will be a good test. I think they have the best run defense of our remaining opponents.
