Week 1 impressions: Brissett

Recommended Posts

Looked good.  Had an accurate night, no picks, 2 TDs, played a large role in leading the team back in the 4th.  They didn't exactly turn him loose, I think Reich is still getting a feel for exactly what he can do but personally, I'm encouraged.  The stage wasn't too big for him an he led the team to putting up a pretty good fight against a playoff contender.

 

If the chargers are in the playoff mix, the team that played against them looks like they belonged on the same football field and Brissett was a big part of that both in tangibles and intangibles.

 

   sucks to lose game 1 but it happens, the team is still trying to find its identity and they're going to let a couple go.  I think the comeback in the 4th is still a net positive for team chemistry as we work out the kinks in the first few weeks and is gonna matter more than the L on the board by January.

Those two back shoulder fades to Cain and Funchess back to back near the end of the first half were beauties. 

 

That Charger defense is no joke. Great pass rushers, fast linebackers and rangy corners. Yet Brissett looked calm and poise against them.

Thought he looked efficient and accurate which bodes well for a guy stepping up from back up to starter.

 

We aren't going to win many games with under 180 team passing yards though. Even the Jaguar's back up rookie got more than that!

That game definitely could have ended in our favour. Were close, im hoping for a solid game against Tennessee. If Brissett plays like that we have a win.

I think Jacoby will get his first win next week against Tenn.

I agree.  He was decisive and accurate, and didn't turn the ball over.  He not only put us in a position to win, but was part of the reason why we came back in the 4th quarter.  I can't ask anything more of him.  He did good today.

I didn't see anything special about them(Charger Defense). We did whatever we wanted to do on the ground and through the air. Bosa and crew were quiet as mice most of the ball game.

I’ve been very vocal about my hesitation to buy into Brissett as a long-term answer at QB. I’m still not totally sold, but he earned a whole lot of salt with me today. Very good game from him. Made great throws, good reads, took care of the ball, and did the kinds of things that you want to see your QB do. 

 

His play action sells are especially good, and he was world class when handing off and selling that he hadn’t. Most QBs hand off and just lay out of the play. He continued to drop back and do the footwork and even a few pump fakes. 

 

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more now.

He does throw a solid back shoulder and comeback/curl pass.

Very nice game by Jacoby! He showed poise, patience in the pocket, and seemed to command the huddle.

Had a beauty of a throw to Ebron, which got ruled incomplete. Ebron should have maintained control of it for the TD, that was another reason we lost the game. 

 

In fairness to Jacoby, he held up his end of the deal today. This loss was definitely not on him.

Just wished frank would've opened the playbook more oh well onto week 2

That will come in time.  Right now everyone's still getting used to each other so a conservative playbook is appropriate.

They should be used to each other now since brissett had over 1,200 snaps with the first offense

He looked good today.    You cant base anything on the 2017 season...totally different team and he took his beating for Luck that year.

We were riding Mack. We also didn’t have many chances because the d was so bad.

And it shows in that they're not that far out of sync.

 

I think Reich is positively impressed by what he saw today and I think that he'll open things up as he sees what Jacoby can do in live action.  Remember, although Jacoby played in 2017, Reich wasn't here, meaning he's really only seen scouting film and practice and preseason snaps.  It'll take awhile for the players to  get perfectly in sync and for the coach to develop 100% confidence in the QB, but what we saw today is a pretty good indication that we're well under way on that process.

It was a bad call. Refs got it wrong.

It would have helped had they played some guys in the preseason. 

The dude started out 9/9 and his first incomplete was the bogus non-TD call for Ebron

It felt like Frank didn't trust him to go deep.   Maybe that's just my impression.   The toss to Funchess. In the endzone that he couldn't bring down was a great pass.  Ebron should have caught the td.  Doyle had one go through his hands and doink off his facemask.   Everyone will get better.   I'm not worried about Jacoby

Mack played really well, I would still have expected more yards though.

 

Not sure what you mean about them not having any chances though?

Didn’t turn the football over. If this reminds I’ll have hope. Special teams and defense need to play better. It’s usually the other way around at the start of the season. The offense was very balanced today. Something we’ve been preaching.

You can’t get yards when your not on the field. The defense couldn’t get them the ball back.

Weird take.

 

If you exclude overtime we won the time of possession and also the turnover battle.

I'm not specifically talking about Brissett. In fact I thought Reich was calling a majorly conservative game. I do feel as if it was more of a test game for the staff and getting things lined up and adjusting. Loved that Mack ran for so many yards. Gives me some more confidence in our run game. How many yards? 170+...? That's awesome. I just felt a lack of aggression. Kind of like they have a hangover from losing Andrew and who wouldnt? The offense has to refind its identity.

Tenn just hung 43 on the Browns. I wouldn’t be so confident...

Need to let his loose and see what he can do.  That's the only way to battle test him. 

 

He did well today.  Managed the game on the field after a major event that was destructive to team morale.

Maybe it just didn't open up.  His throw to Ebron in the endzone was abig time throw.  Ebrin should have caught it.

 

Let's not forget that JB only has 17 games starting experience.

But over the full game we had the ball more than them and took the ball off them more so how were we not on the field?

Charger fans are very impressed with our O line.  They were also impressed with Brissett.

    • I think Brady has played within and exceptional system the majority of his career (and sure, they may have been caught cheating, but I imagine every coach in the NFL is trying to do something every week to get a leg up on the opponent).   My biggest argument on why I take Peyton over Brady is look what happened the year Peyton missed -- we went from being projected to win the AFC South, potential SB contenders, 10+ wins, etc... and we became the laughing stock of the league going 2-14.  It exposed how bad our team really was without Peyton at the helm.     When Brady missed significant time, Matt Cassell led them to 11 wins.  Matt Cassel backed up Matt Barkley and ButtFumble Sanchez in college and never had a snap in a real game, yet could win double digits in NE.  Cassel got paid like a #1 QB after that, and has had maybe 1 decent year and otherwise is a major disappointment and essentially a journeyman back-up QB -- yet, he could win very regularly in NE under Belichek.   To me, that just says Peyton was a more valuable player to his team than Brady.  It's evidenced by Peyton's regular season MVP awards.  Unfortunately, I don't think Peyton ever had as good a team around him (including defense) as Brady has had since he's been a starter in the NFL.  Also unfortunate, the problem on relying on one guy in the playoffs is that the playoffs usually require all 3 phases of a team to be playing pretty flawless once you're through the wildcard rounds.  Brady always had a D he could count on, always had a run game, and has had a lot of very reliable WRs throughout his career.  He rarely was asked to do as much for his team to get W's as Peyton was asked to do in Indy (or his first year in Denver).       I think Belichek is the best coach in NFL history and at this point, I think it's almost hands down (I think the argument that he is the best is a far easier one to make than any individual QB, or really any individual player, considered the best all time).  If Matt Cassel could win 11 games with Belichek, I'm pretty sure there are at least 15 QBs in the league who could post winning records with that system (Cassel is far inferior to guys like Peyton, Brees, Rodgers, Big Ben, Stafford, and a whole slew of other QBs who have played QB in this league).     Brady is a clutch player and he plays in a very solid system on a very solid team year in and year out.  That said, in their primes, I think a guy like Peyton could go to a 2-14 team and turn it around quicker than Brady could.  It's impossible to say, but if Peyton played 20 years with Belichek, I'd have to think he'd have as much or more SBs than Brady -- whereas, I don't think Brady could elevate a team like Indy the same way Peyton did over the course of his career.
    • Just finished watching the Pack/Lions to ight and the officials cost the Lions the game. Two calls against the Lions DE #90 for hands to the face showed clearly his hands were on the opponents pads. So obvious were both calls one would think the games was rigged. I'm sure you will see this on the sports shows tomorrow. These two calls could cost the Lions a run for the SB. "Not reviewable" now is like "diplomatic immunity". The NFL is a joke.
    • Wait a minute...I'm a little slow tonight...So, your happy dream is to have famous fetching females come over to your flat & play a board game? Maybe you play a more adventuresome game in Scotland then we do in North America BHC. That must be it. Wink; Wink.   Something got lost in translation here. Only kidding!
