Week 1 impressions: Brissett


Imgrandojji

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.

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.

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!

 

when you only call screen passes or 5 yard passes its hard to get yards reich has zero faith in jacoby it showed

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

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

 

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.

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.

It was a bad call. Refs got it wrong.

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

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.

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

 

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

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

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

 

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.

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.

    • Yes.   Totally different treatment for the Ravens than for other teams (Broncos).   Pittsburgh should be throwing a fit.  They are getting screwed because the NFL is favoring the Ravens just like they did the Titans.  
    • I would say that RYS has shown a little step back but teams have not thrown at Rhodes as much as they have Ya-Sin.  Teams will pick on him making it look worse than it is.  That being said, he is an all-state champion wrestler and not a long tenured football player.  He will take time at the position because he is used to grabbing and tying up (wrestling background) versus anything else.  Ballard drafted the athlete with promise but that is not going to be a two year deal.  He will be another year or two in my eyes, if he ever fully develops.  I still love his potential.
    • Right, I agree but they also got caught the week before with their Strength coach violating protocols.  A + B = C to me.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/ravens/2020/11/25/ravens-discipline-coach-for-conduct-covid-19-cases/115050108/
    • As of right now a big Colts News update is we might be without AC for a game or more.  La'Raven Clark has shown nothing but bad play at LT so I hope we can finish the season strong and stay in the playoff run. 
    • I would say that if you hit a certain number, you forfeit your next game.   The Ravens have had at least 11 players and 10 staff test positive.     Steve Saunders is the Ravens' head strength and conditioning coach. According to multiple reports, he was the staff member punished by Baltimore for conducting relating to the team's COVID-19 outbreak.  According to the Baltimore Sun, Saunders "had not routinely worn the proximity tracker required by the NFL for contact tracing or reported potential COVID-19 symptoms as he worked with players." NFL Network added in its reporting that the punished staff member had not consistently worn a mask. How COVID-19 spread on the Ravens It's not immediately known how COVID-19 spread through the Ravens' roster, with the Baltimore Sun calling it "unclear." The punishment for a staffer, reportedly Saunders, likely points to belief that his behavior, if not the root, was a factor in the outbreak. According to ESPN, the staffer was the first positive test in this string of positives, though.  Baltimore's outbreak resembles that of Tennessee's from earlier in the season, when a number of players in different positional groupings tested positive over the course of more than a week. ESPN wrote that the Ravens conducted multiple in-person activities, including meetings and an on-field workout, after Ingram and Dobbins came back with positive tests on Monday, Nov. 23   https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/ravens-covid-list-players-outbreak-steelers/a93po5qll7s41v7pcc07de0tq
