Week 2 impressions: Brissett

Recommended Posts

I thought. JB looked average today as well. He could barely find anyone open for the entire 2nd half and im not sure if Tenn had it on lock like that. And i still think he needs work in the pocket. But im glad he got a W attached to his name at the end of it all while learning and getting better.

Has the thought occurred to anyone, that Brissett is not a good fit in F. Reich’s offense? Now I’ll be clear, that I believe JB has done an adequate job thus far. The Colts should be 2-0 and I’m not expecting JB to duplicate Luck like stats. Also, my expectations are lower without Luck at QB. 

 

Thoughts?

 

Yep...I have said this since Reich got here and we knew what his offense would look like.

Looked like Luck in the KC game. Reich should of used Campbell more to open that up.

In 2017 Jacoby always seemed like he was mr. 3 quarters, it just seemed like we were just finding ways to lose even if we were up big in the 4th. But last week and today he’s been on quite a run leading the comebacks im really impressed with him so far, he’s no Andrew luck or Peyton Manning but he’s playing good football.

He’s just not good.  He slow and has no field awareness.  

Yeah.... no. JB is a lot of things, but neither of those.

I would agree to a point. But 5-1 TD/INT ratio thru Two games isn’t as bad as I expected at first.

He's been decent, he can be better especially when campbell gets more involved. The way we playing now that chiefs game will be a massacre. Got to open the offense up and find a kicker.

I think as the season goes on Reich will get the offense going more. It’s going to take time to find out Brissett strengths. We need to use the slot more and more Campbell with quick passes.

Keep in mind too, we essentially spotted the Titans 10 points with turnovers in our own territory, clean up the mental mistakes and the Titans aren’t even in this game.

with all the hype from campbell early on it is disappointing that he is so under used.

Well we have until week five before we have to worry about that. We might settle in by then.

Very true. I’m not saying he doesn’t have things to work on, but it’s not been exactly Curtis Painter either

My thought.  If F. Reich thought he was not a good fit in his offense he would go to Ballard and tell him so.  His job is on the line just like his players so it behoves him to have players that he has confidence in.  Especially at QB.  I think Frank's very confident in having Jacoby run his offense.

He looks better then a guy on the level of a Bridgewater type QB.

 

He literally just started his 17th game today and 15 of those were with Pagano and Chudnothingski...

 

He's heading in the right direction.

seems like frank likes to wait to open up offense til about 6 or 7 games into the season

OMG no he isn't less than average.  Anyone who can play well enough to win against 2 of the better defenses in the NFL, even with the inconsistency, even with the issues, is not "average."

 

And that isn't even counting the fact that Brissett led the team back from a deficit twice in two games against very strong opponents despite very limited NFL starting experience and a roster that while very talented, really wasn't built for him.  Believe me, an average or below average quarterback does not manage that.

 

For an example of an average quarterback, have a look at Ryan Fitzpatrick.  He's about as average as it gets.  Brissett is WAY better than fitzpatrick.

 

Led a comeback? He threw for 8 yards on that drive. If not for Wilkins big run...they likely put up a goose egg in the 2nd half. 

 

After going up 13-7, the offense was not good.

 

I am just glad they got the win.

Lol all I know is we are going to frustrate the hell out of opposing coaches this year. They may shut down JB and think they have us beat but our defense and running game will squeak games out just like this one. I'm trying not to get to riled up one way or the other because as of now this is our formula. Frustrating to everyone else but still gets you a sniff of the playoffs and possibly a 9-7 record.  Ballard is a genius.

Reich has been praising JB since he became the coach. I don’t think after a slugfest against a division foe you can say he doesn’t fit.

I don’t think the offense will open up.  He hasn’t shown an ability to read a defense.  The Colts are averaging  180 yds rushing per game.  That will keep the team in games.  Brissett is at 6 yds/attempt.  That us woeful.

He hits the first read or locks on Hilton.  I know some of you guys want to be “positive” or whatever, but it appears that this guy isn’t good enough. 

 

One read guys can’t be the QBs of contending teams.  He’s slow.

Dude the QB quit a week before the season started and the other guy is suspended.

I have no idea how anyone can nitpick or complain about Brissett or this team after that excellent win. The people that do must lead a sad life. We should've won last week too in reality, some people are never happy. Brissett got the win and that is all that matters. You post a lot so tell the haters and trolls to shove it haha , JMO.

We should probably just forfeit the season honestly. Maybe next year as well just to make sure we get that franchise QB who will surely get us that Super Bowl trophy like the last guy we drafted at #1...oh wait...

Not perfect but won the game offense needs to improve though and new kicker.

Brissett is a "game manager" type QB. He's not the long term answer by any stretch. You can win some games with this type QB, but unlikely a Super Bowl. Hope he makes me eat my words, but usually my gut instincts are spot on.

F. Reich never envisioned Brissett being the starting QB, until it became a reality with Luck’s retirement. Two weeks out, it’s kinda hard to have a plan B. So, naturally Reich is going to say JB’s our guy regardless how he really feels.

Please, he's been on the team for THREE years.  You don't think he would have asked Ballard to find him a QB who could run his offense by now.  The other guy can probably run the offense too and so can Hoyer for that matter.

You may be right but Foles is also a game manager and so was Dilfer so it happens. I agree though it is rare. I believe Ballard with another draft may build a defense that is great, it is good right now, that is a start.

You'd think we were blown out the first 2 games of the season with some of the reactions.

 

Him and Frank seem to be making it work and they'll improve by the looks of it.

 

Stop making it sounds like he's a total scrub.

Yes he underthrew a fade that somehow got through.  And last week he also “threw a TD to TY.”

I have to agree as well. Your thoughts are shared by more than you think. We were superbowl bound.  We were locked and loaded for a long play off run. Most Colts fans, myself and probably you included have a very high bar for the QB position. Going from that to average at best and having a slightly better 2017 is not going to cut it. At best I have them going 9-7 only because I think our defense and running is that good.

Jacoby looked about like he always has in this game, and yes i'm glad they won.  the interception was a great play by the defender but should not have been thrown 

 

would still like to see more passing yards, it worked this week because the Titans did even less

They wouldn't have extended him if they didn't believe he could get the job done.   They could have let him play this year for 2 million

Why are you even complaining? Mariota is supposedly better going by how many talk and they had us on their home turf and we still won. Mariota made several terrible throws. We won so enjoy the win is my take.

    • Feel better and keep fighting the good fight. Yeah we’re in the slow parts of the forum now, lots of people doing work outside.
    • That's an interesting question. Per Spotrac: "Chad Kelly signed a 2 year, $1,230,000 contract with the Indianapolis Colts, including an average annual salary of $615,000. In 2020, Kelly will earn a base salary of $750,000, while carrying a cap hit of $750,000."   However, per John Dixon: "the new CBA eliminates unlimited practice-squad salaries. All practice-squad players are paid a fixed weekly salary established under the CBA — except for Group 4 players, for whom the CBA establishes a minimum and maximum salary. In 2020, both are $12,000 for Group 4; all other practice-squad players will be paid $8,400 per week. In 2022, the Group 4 salaries must be between $15,400 and $19,900, while all others will be paid $11,500."   So I wonder what happens with the 2nd year of Chad's contract (and several other PS players across the league). 
    • I'm not so sure he would survive on the PS.  Last year we paid him a significant salary to keep teams away.  This year we won't be able to.  If he has a good camp and preseason I could see him landing as a backup somewhere even with Cam out there.  I would bet a number of teams would be interested especially at what his contract would look like.  Maybe even the Patriots.  I believe at the end of this year if he was on our roster he would be a restricted FA not unrestricted.  That would give us a little more control and might be an additional factor on keeping him on the roster this year.   
    • Yes the new CBA changed that. Except for a couple veterans you can keep on the PS and pay more. Basically Kelly would be getting a 150k pay cut.
    • Most reports coming out have Hoyer starting over Stidham who isnt ready, as we saw last year Hoyer is done,shot,Curtis Painter level.....who is their go to wr ? Sanu ? M Lee ? N Henry ?  Go to rb ? Michel laid an egg last season with 3.7 yards per carry and now D's will load up even more vs their run game .  The talent simply is not there, they tank for a season and try and reload with Lawrence and bring in a few Free Agents. Brady isnt there to save this outmatched squad. Go to Vegas and bet the under on wins which is 9.5, they wont reach 10 wins, not even close, easy money trust me. I know a few of you here followed my XFL bets and cashed in with me on over under on the games coming in under consistently..cash in on this one as well.
