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.

Imagine how good he would have looked if he had amazing college stats.     I'm sure  Kyler Murry and Baker Mayfield looked great today

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 ran

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.

    • Oh yeah, I’ve read both of the SI Easterby features. More than once lol. Like I said, this is a guy I was hearing about 5 years ago or so when the Brady breakup rumors first started as a source of division in the Patriots organization. I thought that was so out of the ordinary for the Patriots to have a guy who wasn’t a coach or an executive whose name kept popping up when describing the growing rift(s) within the organization.    Somehow he got hooked up with McNair and he’s actually had a bunch of different job titles with the Texans, but all indications are that these major decisions are all being influenced by him, and him alone.    The hiring of Culley is definitely curious. The Ravens WR coach. The Ravens aren’t exactly known for having a stellar receiving corps. I talked to a die hard Ravens fan last night about him and he is indifferent to his departure at best. He told me that before coming to Baltimore Culley was in Kansas City in the same role the season the Chiefs went without a WR scoring a TD.    It really feels like this hire, and the Caserio one are because those guys are going to know their roles under him because they’ve bought the snake oil memberships from him.    And you brought up Andre Johnson about the same time I did. He’s been kind of a goodwill ambassador for the Texans in recent years, but even he’s raising the red flags as far as Easterby is concerned.    And you nailed it on Watson. McNair had told him that he would be involved in the process. Right or wrong is for conjecture. But McNair told him that he would be involved. Only to days later start making decisions that were news to Watson when they broke. They literally lied right to his face in real-time. When was the last time a team jerked their legitimate All Pro quarterback around like that? When was the last time a quarterback of Watson’s status went from being the franchise cornerstone at the end of the season to officially requesting a trade less than a month later? (Watson has made it officially official this morning.)   And what has been the one thing constantly mentioned in connection with all of it?   Easterby.    See? It’s an easily fascinating story once you start peeling the layers of the onion away.      The Palcic case is definitely weird, too. When that happened many in the media who worked with her through the years cited her as one of the better PR folks to deal with in the league.   Despite that she was just out of the blue fired one day. Because she was “no longer a cultural fit”. I mean a PR office has a lot of diverse tasks, but I don’t think conforming to a “cultural fit” is one of them. The PR office doesn’t have enough to do with actual football operations to need to fit anything.    Last I heard she was considering legal action over the termination.    It’s just another one of those instances where Easterby’s name comes up, and there’s a negative aura around it. 
    • Yep. Watson would be out of the division and conference, will be nice.   He will prefer SF or WFT over Broncos and Jets, IMO. Unlike SF, WFT's Dan Snyder is crazy enough to give up 3 first rounders while SF might just give the Texans 2 first rounders and Jimmy G in a swap. WFT really has no one to give in a swap.
    • That place is on fire putting it lightly. Everything seems to be stemming from this Easterby guy, seems to have some sort of influence on Mr Mcnair. Lot of people wondering how you go from a religious figure to an NFL advisory role directly into an owners ear.....make your own assumptions the word brainwash is out there haha. The racism thing is real too.
    • Predicted this last night in the Cully thread.   The perfect out come he is traded to SF is and out of conference and Stafford is traded to Colts and is out of conference.  
    • I think SF would be a frontrunner over the Jets for one of Watson's destinations.   Mahomes is a hindrance for the Broncos to go after him or Stafford, IMO. WFT is a dark horse and Dan Snyder is stupid enough to mortgage 3 first rounders and 3 second rounders for Watson, IMO while I feel his market value should settle down at 2 first rounders and 2 second rounders. Jimmy G definitely is slightly better in a swap than Drew Lock as well, IMO.
