I'm talking about your post.  You mentioned shuttering things just thinking about Brissett later on the year.  I assumed you referred to windows, although I guess it could be a camera of sorts you would feel the need to shutter?

 Ahhh. I get it, autocorrect for the fail.

 

Shudder and all that...

Minshew looks like every porn actor in my parents shoebox of videos

For some reason there are some people in here that dislike JB so much they bring up Minshew being better than him, dear God haha . I think some would rather have Johnny Football than JB at QB. Of course nobody can compare to the JB haters GOAT being Kelly. After all Kelly has thrown for 0 TD's and 0 Yards in his career so I can see why lmao .

Umm..Minshew had 0 yrds two games ago.  Doesn't seem to be bothering him too much.

Sorry, I'm so used to Manning and Luck that this is a shock to me still. It's like using an undrafted QB as your starter in Madden with good short accuracy and awareness, and bad everything else. I'm going to have to either get used to it or not watch for a year.

The thing is..Jacoby actually has a good deep ball..just loves the check down too much. And doesn't progress through his reads well.

The Jags will probably give us some trouble as has been their custom.  But won't be because of this Minshew guy.  It'll be  that defense of theirs which is capable of shutting out any divisional rival on any given Sunday.  They shut out the Andrew Luck led Colts offense last year.  They are always a formidable opponent against the Colts regardless of their record.

Believe me I hate that Luck retired. I had SB hopes like you did. JB obviously isn't as good but I am in acceptance stage now. After Luck retired, the next day I was depressed and in shock. I still really can't believe it but JB is our guy for 2019. If JB busts, then at least we have Ballard to correct the problem through F.Agency or draft in 2020.

After the acceptance stage is the Mariota stage.  In this stage you actually begin to celebrate mediocrity.

People on here praising Minshew & saying he’s better than JB. He’s playing at home & I just checked the game log & the Jags have already punted 5 times in the first half. We only punted 5 times total last game. This JB hate ain’t about football.  Because facts alone would lessen the hate. Yet it continues. Any & every QB is better than JB...  Let them tell it.

That is a great post and very funny. I look at guys like Mariota, Trubisky, Eli, Fitzpatrick, Flacco, Darnold - just the Jets situation, and that makes me happy we have JB lmao . Also we could be the Steelers where it would be worse, losing Ben for the year just destroyed their season.

I'll tell you one thing....I'll take a so called mediocre QB that wins a Super Bowl with a solid team around him than a once in a generation guy who doesn't ever win the big one.  If Luck won us several Super Bowls, I'd feel devastated right now.  Fact is...he didn't.  Never even got us there.  It's not his fault his career was squandered  by Irsay & Griggson but it is what it is...he didn't win ish.  So if Jacoby's Colts somehow manage to win one under Ballard's stewardship...what then?  

 

Chris Ballard is the franchise guy in this organization.  As long as he is at the controls, I believe the Colts can contend and effectively move on from Luck's departure.

Better get used to it. We literally hit the lotto twice with 18&12.

 

This is how most teams have it year in year out. Try to find a competent QB with a solid all around team. 

 

The younger fans are probably having a tough time. 30 years old and younger are shell shocked. 

 

No idea how old you are, I just meant for people like me who remember pre Manning, it's not a shock to our system as much, but it's kind of like becoming a 'regular' NFL team again.

Minshew's wrs are dropping  perfectly  thrown balls. Some fans want a gunslinger  which is why they hate on Brissett

Maybe. I think it’s deeper with some than just JB not being a gunslinger.  That’s just the reasoning some hide behind.  And I think Minshew looks solid for a rookie. He’s definitely got some moxie.

For me, Brissett bores me as a QB. Both as a player and a person. So you don't accuse me of you know what, I have said I'd trade Luck for Mahomes numerous times and have also said Wilson was as good as Luck. Just see 0 potential in Brissett, he's not even very mobile.

Neither does Brissett unless you have an all-time great defense backing him up. We can follow the Pats model all we want, but Reich is not Belichick, and Brissett is not Brady. We had a chance if Luck was playing. Brissett is a game manager with a less than elite team backing him up. We need a QB that can win against top QB's.
