Week 3 impressions: Brissett

Recommended Posts

I didn’t get to see the game, but I definitely got what I wanted out of this one. That’s a good pass defense, from what I’ve heard. This bodes well going forward.

Brissett completed his first 16 passes and just looked great. It was fun to watch.

My impressions of him today is that he was incredibly impressive.  I was hoping he’d have a fairly high volume yardage game with at least a couple TDs.

Patience is a virtue.  What a difference a week makes.  Jacoby is doing just fine and Vinatieri can kick again.

Now we just need to follow that up next week. It looks very probable TY might miss that game.

kc is ridiculous. they don't have tyreek hill and they still score alot. Demarcus robinson, hardman, watkins, kelce. We wold have to run the ball and keep it away from mahomes and hope the d gets a stop.

Just wait till they put Hill and Hardman on the same side and have a sprint race lol

When number 12 was still our quarterback everyone had us at 2-1.

 

I am so proud of Jacoby, he showed nerves of steel today. We got the ball with 4:11 in the 4th and all he did was lead a methodical march down field that drained every second of the clock.  Well done QB!

So far this season has been great IMO. 2-1, Brissett throws for 300 yards to satisfy the stat lovers, Vinny makes 2 FG's and 3 extra points to satisfy the he needs to be cut guys. lmao

I just watched the Deion "you ball you get the call" nonsense on NFL network.  Jacoby "got the (well earned) call".  Deion says to him "you got the raiders coming up next" and Jacoby answers through his smile "they got us coming up too".  Really starting to like this guy.  Gonna be a fun year.  Go Colts!  Hats off to a great offensive performance today!

I agree...that would have been the classiest move of any team this season...wonder if Frank even considered it?

Totally agree, and if the injury was caused by something one of our players done, I'm sure coach would have declined it.

Probably a top-15 quarterback in the NFL right now. He was unreal today. Really impressed with him.

 

We've seen the good decisions and solid play in the redzone, but he was picking apart that Falcons defense all game long, while being under a good amount of pressure for most of the game too.

I wish I could have seen the game...could only catch it on the radio in the car...but sounds like JB was great (I did see the Pascal TD highlight...which was quite nice). 

 

Seems like Reich opened up the playbook a bit more as well...and let JB sling it.

Rick Venturi was saying all week our pass game could do well against the falcons. He was right. Looks like the falcons played a lot of man and we created mismatches with the TE.

what is most impressive about this game is they stopped our run game and jacoby was able to put it on his back and eat them up with the passing game. that answered all the questions of people thinking if we ever got the running game stopped we'd be in trouble.  jacoby heard what you were thinking and he threw up the middle finger!

Which is exactly how I said teams were going to try to play the Colts after last week.  Stack the box and dare them to throw it down the field.  I am glad Jacoby took advantage.  Now teams will have to go back to the drawing board.  What was also impressive is that he did it in the second half without TY.  That wasn’t just good for Jacoby but the young receivers too.

Only concern moving forward is the injury to Hilton, that's Brissett's favorite target and we are already down Funchess. Without those two we have a lot of unproven guys at WR. Hopefully it's nothing long term.

He had too the falcons stacked the box pretty much all game.  Also the line struggled a little more in pass protection than they normally do.  Jacoby was able to offset a lot of it by getting the ball out fast but he was under pressure a lot, especially in the second half.  

 

Still the way you beat that is to do what the Colts did.  Get the ball out fast and go down the field.

It feels like Campbell could have a break out game soon. He had a couple of great catches. Cain had a big one also but Campbell just feels like he is real close.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the last time I remember a Colts QB completing that many in a row was Peyton vs the Jags (in Jax) back in like 08. I think he went 17/17 before throwing an incompletion. That's very impressive.

It's very impressive...better still...the pass catchers caught all of them. We just aren't used to seeing that in a while.

Thru two weeks the Falcons WERE the number 1 defense against the pass.

 

300+ yards

2 TD's

0 Turnovers

118.5 rating

Compketions to 9 different players

 

Plus the game tying drive week 1

Game winning drive week 2

Game icing drive AND perfectly executed 4 minute drive to close the game today

 

He is most certainly our QB

I’ll take today’s Jacoby over Andrew (ducks and hides)

 

what I mean by that is that Jacoby was getting the ball out fast, taking what the defense gives him rather than forcing things, and was pinpoint on his throws (loften did a great job highlighting that and why it matters on the broadcast).  Those weren’t always Andrew’s strong suits.

That's a fantastic summary and really shows how quickly Brissett has taken over.  And from the glimpses we get of the clubhouse the team loves him too.  He is definitely one of the primary leaders of this team

Eh... Why are you asking the question in such a contentious way? Do you think I don't want him to succeed or something? :( On the very first page of this thread I  think I gave him big props for today's performance (and the comment applies for more than just this game). He made some very good plays, but more importantly he looked like he was in control of the offense and move the ball down the field very well. 

 

I think it is important for us(especially for Ballard and Reich) to critically evaluate Brissett this season because the consequences might span the next half a decade+ of Colts football. This includes the positives and the negatives of his game and it should be a holistic evaluation over the span of the season rather than based on single bad or good games. Every QB in the NFL is capable of having a horrible or a great game on a random Sunday... We should keep gathering impressions and amalgamate them into a more fully informed opinions by the end of the season.

 

You get my like just for saying the word "amalgamate" haha:hat:

Shoot imagine  Hill and hardman on one side. Watkins and Robinson  on the other and kelce working the middle. Nobody  is defending  that.

In a situation like that, even if you have 3 WR, 1 TE formations with 1 RB, there are 5 OL and if they bring 6, with a spy on Mahomes, they can man up with dime formations with enough speed to defend any RBs going lateral. That is how Belichick flushed Mahomes by bringing 6, with and without stunts in the A gaps, and shut him down in Foxboro for one full half and in KC in the AFCCG for one full half.

 

In the regular season game, they choked everything underneath by taking Kelce away, so Tyreek Hill went off in the second half once Reid and Mahomes figured that out, and in the AFCCG, the RB in the flat started being left open once they decided to double Hill more along with taking Kelce away, that is when the RBs started catching TD passes for a near comeback. 

 

But then, it wasn't just Mahomes that was a factor. The Patriots run game with their OL and Michel dominated time of possession (42 to 18 minutes just like the wide right SB that Belichick game planned against Jim Kelly as DC under Parcells where they conceded the run to the Bills, shut down the passing game, and dominated TOP similarly with Giants run game). I hope Mahomes and Andy Reid learnt a thing or two from that.

 

You get ahead on NE earlier in the game and do not let up, that is the way you beat NE lately. If you go down by 2 scores at any point in time, you are climbing a mountain constantly.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but the announcers kept pointing it out, and I think it's worth mentioning.  Not only was Brissett on fire the first half, ball placement was perfect, allowing his receivers to make plays after the catch.  It was really a thing of beauty watching him carve up that defense.

Yea, I think during the game he broke some kind of drought on most Colts QB completions in succession for the first half. He was very consistent and looked comfortable. In all of Brissett's interviews, he credited all this with his receivers getting open, but no, Brissett's passes looked beautiful. Brissett deserves a ton of credit.

I thought he did real well. Lets just take it day by day and not get to high or to low.

Lotsa ball to be played yet. I was not to worried to begin with . It was just more of the unknown.

That 17 season was an anomaly that he had on a team with an awful o line, being a 2nd yr with little experience,and being thrown into a different system. Totally unfair to judge him from that.

 

It will be interesting to see how he fairs and the rest of the team against the upper brass teams and defenses in the league. Jacksonville has a good D.

We need a legit number 2 WR though its becoming clear its not going to be Cain.

Cain will be fine.... maybe not our #2, but that could very well be Funchess, too.  Reich hasn't shown 1/5 of his cards on his playcalling yet... I imagine Cain and Campbell are working on some stuff which Reich will utilize when our O has more confidence and experience without Luck.

Way to early to say that. We probably will have to bring someone in for next week.

I don't think we need to bring anyone in, but Crabtree just became available.

    • Simple reason. KC was missing the things that gave them their strength and identity. We were/are missing things that we didn't use well or often when healthy, and continue not to utilize them even when they are open.    If a baseball team is known for having bad pitching, but great bats, does it matter if their pitcher is out? Or is it worse if their #1 hitter is out?   And LOL at the other stuff. I'm sure I can guess who the pearl clutcher (s) is (are). One in particular is stalkerish via unsolicited PMs. I could care less what they or others think, especially if it's the one or ones I suspect. Questioning my fandom is pretty darn funny though. I'm not a fan because I disagree with certain narratives... sure... 
    • Florio is a *. He has no inside info. What he said was stupid.  If   their guy is there they will take him. They will not reach for a QB though. I do not see them taking a QB that late. What would be the purpose. They still have Kelly if they want a young backup. I doubt they take that big of a risk hoping a 3rd or 4thtd QB becomes the franchise.
    • I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere else on this forum but regarding Kelly and others, Reich and Ballard are always harping on competition and position battles to build a stronger team. It seems to me the 2 weakest areas on this team are the 2 they haven't allowed any competition, qb and kicker. Just an observation. I can't complain about being 6-6, I thought we'd go 11-5 or 10-6, just couldn't get it done in key moments of some games(the qb and kicker really let us down at times). It's not over yet though, if we can win out we still have a chance at the post season.
    • It was definitely not a good story ending for the underdogs, or a triumphant tale like Rudy, that's for darn sure..... All kids should have a similar experience though lol... It's a welcome to reality moment.    Finding tape on guys is much much easier that it used to be. I'm definitely no expert though. I'm just someone that prefers stats and film to watching a bunch of brainless TV shows lol.  It's more of something to do around the draft/FA period when there's not football to watch. To me, the more you know, the more interesting the season is. Also the more realistic you are about some guys.
    • To get this back on track. The more I read and hear from so called experts. It would not be shocking that Ballard just continues to build around JB and draft a QB in like round 3-4. You hear Florio say that the Colts are happy and moving forward with JB. Then you see these colts.com post these stats about the offense and JB particularly.    Colts Offense   Fourth in the NFL and second in the AFC in rushing yards (139 per game)   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed (24)   Ninth in the NFL in sack percentage allowed (6.14)   Fifth in the NFL in first downs per game (22.2)   Ninth in the NFL in third down conversion percentage (44.23)   Third in the NFL in 3rd-and-short [less than four yards] conversion percentage (72.9)   Fifth in the NFL in 3rd-and-10-plus conversion percentage (26.7)   Seventh in the NFL in fourth down conversion percentage (62.5)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in fourth downs converted (10)   Tied for eighth in the NFL in red zone touchdown scoring percentage (63.64)   Seventh in the NFL in average time of possession (31:26)   Tied for third in the NFL in touchdowns off 10-play drives (13)   Tied for fourth in the NFL in 10-play drives (26)   Second in the NFL in average number of plays on scoring drives (9.00)   Tied for third in the NFL in red zone touchdowns (28)   Tied for third in the NFL in players recording three or more receiving touchdowns (4)   10th in the NFL in PFF offensive rating (75.8)   10th in the NFL in PFF pass blocking rating (74.4)   Second in the NFL in PFF run blocking rating (82.6)   Quarterback Jacoby Brissett   Eighth in the AFC in completion percentage (64.3)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in passing touchdowns (16)   Fifth in the AFC in touchdown percentage (4.9)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in fewest interceptions (6)   Sixth in the AFC in interception percentage (1.8)   Sixth in the AFC in passer rating (93.2)   Sixth in the AFC in third down passer rating (88.7)   Tied for first in the NFL in third-and-one rushing conversion percentage (100)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks (3)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in red zone passing touchdowns (14)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in passing touchdowns within 10-yard line (10)   10th in the NFL among qualified quarterbacks in fumbling grade (62.6)   Seventh in the NFL in undesigned QB scrambles (25)*   Eighth in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage (76.3)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in fewest interceptions under pressure (1)*   Third in the NFL in completion percentage in clean pocket (75.0)*   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest interceptions in clean pocket (5)*   Third in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage in clean pocket (83.0)*   10th in the NFL in passer rating in clean pocket (107.5)*   Fifth in the NFL in play action completion percentage difference (7.0)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in play action passing touchdowns (7)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest play action interceptions (1)*   Ninth in the NFL in play action completion percentage (69.3)*   Eighth in the NFL in play action passer rating (110.5)*   Tied for eighth in the NFL in fewest non-play action interceptions (5)*   Third in the NFL in average time in pocket (3.01 seconds)*   Fifth in the NFL in average time to run/scramble (5.61 seconds)*   First in the NFL in fewest percentage of dropbacks with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (36.7)*   Tied for sixth in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (75.0)*   Ninth in the NFL in passer rating with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (102.9)*   First in the NFL in dropbacks with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (63.3)*   10th in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (58.2)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest interceptions with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (3)*
