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.

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.

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.

Never said there wasn't. However, most would agree that most football fans in Indiana were fans of either the Bears, or the Bengals. When I was growing up, most local radio stations covered the bears. Even Q95 was mostly Bears. It was not until Harbaugh and that ridiculous run happened that more people in the state realized that we actually had our own football team.

Nice, 2 years/$30 mil was right around what I was guessing when that Florio rumor first surfaced.

 

Good deal for both sides really.

    • I think improving just iDL, or even both iDL and DE would make the back end look much much better. I look at things heavily based on chosen scheme. Our current scheme simply won't work without an improved pass rush. And our pass rush ranked pretty darn low. I think improvements in that are make the whole machine hum along better, and we'd see the DBs look more "ball hawking" instead of  "geesh, how long to I have to cover this guy". While I've never been a big fan of Geathers, I think Desir if perhaps the bigger need to upgrade as far as DBs are concerned. But again, perhaps they both look a lot better if we had a decent pass rush. I really love using Oke at both SAM, and on passing downs at MIKE. It's great bang for the buck. Since we use SAM a third or less % of the time, it's great to get more value out of Oke by getting passing down snaps from him at MIKE. I'm not a fan of Walker in passing downs, but even less of a fan of Oke in running downs at MIKE. I am a big fan of Walker in running downs though. Walker won't compel a big dollar contract only being a 2 down LB, so not sure you have to worry about a big extension.    On his grade, keep in mind that Walkers grade suffered when he moved to WILL when Leonard was out for 3 games, and he played 100ish% of snaps and had to defend the pass. Honestly I wish they would have left Walker at MIKE and let fill in for Leonard at WILL. IIRC, Walker is only making 2.6M now, which is less than Oke and Speed. He's not a FA until 21, so we've got time. While he's likely not a pressing need for the FO, I wouldn't be shocked to see him sign something in the 5-6M range sooner than later, which would be at the bottom of the top 20. 8-9 would put him in the 12-13 range, and honestly I don't see that given he's a 2 down guy.
    • I would think with the talent they have they would want more of a veteran. They are in a win now mode. A rookie sets them back. They are not on a rebuilding mode. They have more talent then the colts I think. Go after a tackle in the first and get a veteran. They are getting ready to play in the new stadium so maybe they want a young exciting QB. So much can change after FA starts. If they get Brady they have to take a tackle at 6 though.
    • I was into the AAF quite a bit.  The style was NFL-like.   Not sure I'm up for another disappointment.  The last time for the XFL was so poor, it makes me question this time.   Will they be able to leave the WWF out of it this time?    
    • I have to admit, I really don't feel anything.  Probably because I haven't watched the NBA for a long time.    Does the grieving outpour stem from him being a Laker?   I get that he is probably a top 5 all time NBA player.     Sad tragedy for sure.    
    • I agree with this that the Chargers are very close.  I have always had Brady going there.  Dalton also makes sense.  If they get either one then they are a trade back candidate.  Could be a perfect spot for the Colts.
