Brissett Extended (Merge)

Recommended Posts

If it is a 2yr extension with $20m signing bonus(might just be guaranteed not SB?)

 

2019 Cap Hit: $8.7m

2020 Cap Hit: $12.1m

2021 Cap Hit: $12.2m

 

Something like that. Still think it's goong to be new deal.

 

2019: $15m(guaranteed)

2020: $15m($5m guaranteed)

Does this means Ballard is a better GM than Telesco and Jones

 

I like telesco.  I root for him like any former colt.   But I think Ballard is better yes.

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.

Congrats Jacoby!  $20M guaranteed at signing. The man got paid...  Now it's time to get to winning!

Go Colts!

Knowing Ballard, you knew this was coming.  Best GM in football imo.  Security and respect for brissett and cap is still very healthy.

This was a dumb move. We should be tanking for Tua. 

You can but it appears the team is not

Well aware, it just has nothing to do with the conversation.

Not for me. This deal tells me that people smarter than me re: football are putting their faith in Brissett. I am intrigued and excited by CK, but I'm happy Brissett is at the helmet for now.

This move also helps with chemistry. The players know Ballard is serious about winning and he backed up his talk about believing in Jacoby.

This is even better. It lets the situation play out before rewarding him with franchise money.

This makes no sense what so ever.

 

This was my first, initial reaction, not knowing the details. But...

 

But 2 years extension for $30M? That's practically 3 years for $32M. That's a good veteran backup money. If Ballard wanted to retain Brissett (behind Luck) next year, he'd have to pay similar money.

 

Brissett will start for one year, for a backup money. Then he'll either be an extremely cheap starter (if he proves himself), or he'll be one of the better veteran backups - for the right price.

 

This makes perfect sense in my opinion.

Guys, our roster is too good to tank.  If the Jags can get deep in the playoffs with Blake Bortle, don’t you think our defense, offensive line and new receivers can win with a better QB than Bortles?

No,   it includes this year.    He is under contract through the 2020 season.    So 15 mill per the next two seasons.

True. But I do think that team was way better than this team.  

  

I think we're ok, but not nearly as good as that one.

People roll this out but with each passing year becoming less and less relevant.

Good on ballard for taking the initiative to give his possible franchise quarterback a pay raise when he really didn’t need to and showing FA's that you do your job and end up in the position to take over, you are part of the locker room/family and will be taken care of in a prudent manner. 

This is how I see this idea.....

... and a historically good defense.

 

So we only need Eberflus to put together a historically good defense in his 2nd season as a DC, from a bunch of 25 yrs old youngsters, and we'll be fine. Piece of cake. :D

JB would of been stupid to wait until after the season. He could of lost a lot of money. If after 2020 he proves he is the franchise QB he will get franchise money. Good spot for both the team and him.

    • This is hard one. There are so many great players in this class... I will also assume you don't want us to include positional value in this.    Chase Young Jeffrey Okudah Joe Burrow Isaiah Simmons   The fifth one is extremely hard for me. I can argue for like... 5-6 players here... Derrick Brown, Lamb, Jeudy, Andrew Thomas, Jedric Wills... hell... even Tristan Wirfs needs to be in this discussion, even though he will probably be RT, he will be a great one IMO. I think I will go with Jerry Jeudy here as my last one.     
    • Very tough leaving Jeudy off this list.... but here are my Top 5....   Chase Young  Joe Burrow Derrick Brown  Jeff Okudah Isaiah Simmons
    • Would be awesome if the Colts had an amazing pass offense next year and Ebron can sit there and regret quitting because we all know he did. 
    • Could be Aaron Rodgers... Let's try an "A"
    • I mean... we were 7-9. I get that we have high expectations, but sometimes you see teams have to be bottom feeders for several years before they can start sniffing sustained success (see: the 49ers). If we imagine that we'd lost Luck at the start of the Ballard era I imagine we'd be looking at our team in a much different light. We probably would not have reached the playoffs any of those years.    Ballard inherited a bad, aging roster from Grigson and I felt right away this would be a 3 year project minimum before we were competitive. Well it only took two years and going into that year 3 we looked so promising. Then BAM Luck retires.    Luck's impact on this team is enough that it certainly changes our team's outlook when he's gone. A 3 year rebuild turns into what? 5? And honestly? That's where I think we are. We were a few missed kicks, late interceptions away from the post season this year already. With the cap we have, and the draft stock we carry, as long as we can improve our QB situation, the rest of our roster is primed to continue to grow for a couple more years before we really have to start worrying about cap.    So with that said... please don't retire Anthony Constonso!  My heart may not be able to handle the setback.
