Campbell TD

Recommended Posts

Watching the game live it didn’t look like Parris was this open. Man he is fast. He smoked Logan.

Wish they would start using him a little more in the offense but what do I know.

 

I’m sure Frank Reich knows what he is doing.

JB threw him open.  Excellent work by the Colts QB.  If he threw behind him, that would probably have been a pick.  But Brissett threw it where only Campbell could get it, and Campbell delivered. 

 

Brissett put that football right where it needed to be, fantastic touch pass.  Good running catch by the WR, but the pass was better than the catch IMHO.  That kind of touch pass is not easy to do and it's a good sign that Brissett is capable of creating offense with his arm even against good secondaries.

 

Now he just needs to show he can do this kind of play more consistently, and get it done between the 20s. 

 

Brissett is very close to breaking out, he's right on the cusp of "getting it" IMHO.  If he works hard, and I think he will, we're all gonna be surprised with what he winds up being.

No need to show everything yet. If it's not on film yet teams can't defend it as well. Sprinkle it in vs KC and pour it on after the bye.

I agree I'd like to get Campbell more involved, it's going to come down to Brissett establishing a comfort level with him.  Right now that's the big thing holding the team back, is that Brissett is still getting comfortable with the team's receiving corps. 

 

One of the reasons TY is getting so many balls thrown his way is because TY is one of the holdovers from Brissett's run in 17 and there's some residual comfort factor there.

 

I think that'll work itself out given time. Brissett's just gonna get comfortable with some of his younger options.

 

That said, if we're in the playoff hunt at the deadline I do think Ballard is going to make a move for a veteran target.  We don't have a lot of physicality in our receiver corps, especially without Funchess.  With a non-elite QB I see that as a need that will have to be addressed.

Don’t forget funchess should be back by week 10. Brissett had a good comfort level with him that first game.

I’m pretty surprised of a few things. 

 

1. Ebron hasn’t been the replacement target for Funchess. 

 

2. Campbell hasn’t seen more action yet

 

3. Cain targets? Is he getting open or is he just running up field? 

 

4. Hines hasn’t been much of a factor at all. In fact, if we got down to it and had to cut someone, Hines might be one of those cuts. I don’t even recall, has he had anything that was over 5-6 yards?

 

5. MAC, is he still on the team?

 

6. Hentges, he is being saved for the surprise TD throw we will need against a top offensive foe when we open it up for JB to throw as needed. 

 

7. Wishes Fountain hadn’t been hurt, wonder what he would have been able to create in the regular season :Cry:

It was a great pass.  And Campbell was running away from the defender in that crossing route.  They made it look easy.

If he can just do what he has been doing in the red zone between the 20’s he is going to be great.  He has made the red zone look like a cake walk.

Campbell ran a great route and had great separation even before he crossed the middle of the field. Very nice pass by JB but he stared him down the entire route. Lucky the left safety didn't react.

Yea Campbell,  cain, and hines lack of targets in space is confusing.  Particularly on that drive at the end of the half. Could have got in field goal range with Campbell  running  slants. The offense  still feels like a wrapped  up gift. Can't  tell it's  full potential  until it's  unleashed.

That was the problem JB had on the pass to Hilton that was picked, it was not a great pass because it was behind TY which allowed the defender to break on the ball and get the pick.

 

But for some reason JB is better throwing to his left than he is throwing to the right, which is unusual for a right handed QB.

It's not confusing, a team cannot show everything in the first couple of games.

 

When teams are scouting their opponent for the next week to develop their game plan, they typically look at the last 5 games, so teams are learning you show things in one game to set something else up in another game.

 

For example; the power run to the left the Colts have used heavily in the first two weeks... sometime soon, probably in the next week or two, we are going to see that exact same play but there will be Ebron or Campbell or even Hines dragging back to the right and JB is going to pull the ball out and throw it to the dragging player and it will be open for a big gain.

 

In the SD game something like that wasn't needed, the power running to the left worked the entire 2nd half and SD could not stop it.  In the Titans game it wasn't really needed either

I don't see the staring down.  In the video he, JB clearly looks left, looks right and then his head snaps left and he throws.  That is why the safety didn't react by dropping back.

JB did a great job at freezing the safety.

He flashes quickly left but immediately locks in on PC before PC is even breaking to the left and follows him all the way across the field.

It was a dime, but JB did not "throw Campbell open." Campbell blew the doors off the CB and was wide * open. JB better not have screwed that up.

Yup, he was crazy open. And I'm pretty sure he was the primary read. That's what we missed last year (separation). Cain was wide open on multiple occasions but JB didn't find him. One of my biggest concerns with JB is that he struggles going through progressions. Hoping the game slows down for him.

I'm not trying to be a wise guy but exactly how did Brissett throw him open? He was wide open on his own.  That was  an easy throw that any QB in the league should complete. And if he would have thrown it behind him it would have been a bad pass.

He threw the ball before Campbell was even there and just guided him to the right space.

Well. I understand what throwing open means and he did there. It’s just hard to explain. I heard the same thing from Kevin Bowen this morning.

Anticipation.  He threw where he expected  Campbell  to be and where only he could have caught  it

It was a great pass, best of the game for Brissett (and the second longest pass, I think), but I don't think he necessarily threw him open. JMO. Nothing to quibble over though because again, it was a great pass.

If more passes had gone Campbell's way the offense  would be more explosive.

Kind of an interesting stat (even though we're only 2 games in), Hilton is the only player with more than 5 receptions so far. Hines has 5 and everybody else, less than that.

Had Funchess not gotten injured I think he would've eclipsed that though.

Just because you say it a different way does not make it true.  Watch his head, he does not follow Campbell across the field, he looks, left, right then left.  In other words, the way a QB is supposed to go through his progressions.

You keep banging this drum without offering anything tangible to support it.  

 

The other day you complained he wasn’t on the field enough without knowing his snap count. 

 

Its not like you showing us multiple plays where’s he’s screamingly wide open and Brissett isn’t throwing to him. Hey there might be, but show us.

 

You’re, of course, entitled to your opinion, but an informed one carries more weight.

It was a good leading throw.  Campbell made it easy but Brissett still had to put it where it had to go.

 

And no, NOT any QB could make that throw.  We've certainly seen examples of that kind of throw going very badly.  One that stands out is the Russsel Wilson pass that the Pats picked off in SB49. Wilson didn't throw a strike to Lockette and that allowed Butler to get in and out the body on him.  A good throw that Lockette could shield with his body while he caught it would have been a TD.

I going to keep banging  the drum til I see the young wrs being used the way they are supposed  to be. He got 1 pass thrown his way in each game. 1 pass is too little  to show off his talent.  Give him atleast  5 targets in space.

Repeating the same thing over doesn’t make it more valid. What if he’s been covered on every other snap, should we force him the ball into coverage?

It’s hard to utilize all of our offensive weapons, especially since Reich decided to focus on the run more. We have 3 mainstay targets in Hilton, Doyle and EE who are really good and need to get their touches.

    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway. 
    • Humility is on the path to enlightenment...   Some-ish like that...   I try and remind myself daily lol
    • Ha, ha, ha.....whatever psyche job Reich wants to use. Brissett must be mentally fragile.
