Week by week luck/brissett comp

Recommended Posts

Some won’t like this thread believing that we must move on but I like to see how jacoby Compares to luck so we can truly gauge where this franchise is heading and where it’s been, and how good luck actually was. I don’t have a lot of time so It might be ugly and I’m prob going to miss a few things but here it goes and I hope either I or someone else keeps this updated. 

 

2018 luck

week 1 39-53 att, 74% 319 yards 2 td 1 int 93.2 rating 

2.  21-31 att, 68% 179 yards 2td 2int 77.2 rating

3 25- 40 att, 62% 164 yards 1td 0 int 79.6 rating

 

 

  brissett 2019

Week 1. 21-27 att 78% 190 yards 2td 0 int 121 rating 

week 2. 17-28 60% 146 yards 3td 1 int 95 rating 

week 3. 28-37 76% 310 yards 2td 0 int 118 rating. 

 

 

At this point luck had 5 td and 4 int where jacoby has 7td 1 int. I would def say so far and I stress SO FAR we look to be in very good hands if he can sustain this and the crazy thing is I think he will get better.

Luck was missing Ac and nelson wasnt playing like an all pro his first few games either.  also not a big fan of rating, it rewards efficiency but not necessarily making plays and it treats all TDs and interceptions the same, regardless of what the QB actually did

 

that was JBs best game by far though, so kudos to him for that

I agree.   The QB rating is an OK indicator, but it is flawed.   

It is almost amusing that a QB can get a perfect passer rating even though he has a few in-completions.   How can it be perfect if it can be better?

I love Brissett, and I am not one bit surprised by what he has done so far.

 

But you are really comparing apples and oranges.

 

The O-line was bad at the beginning of last year, really bad.

 

Now it's great.

 

Not to nit-pick, but just before Vinitieri made it 13-0, Brissett missed a wide open Hilton when he threw it away.... Go look. He should have had 3 TD's!

In the nicest way, it's a bit of a pointless comparison. Too much variance between the two situations to do a week by week comparison. You could look overall at the end of the year for a better comparison but again different roster, different schedule and just the whole madness that is Luck retiring when he did. 

 

I'd argue too that there are some better metrics to use. Go on PFR and look at stuff like adjusted net yards per attempt, TD%, INT% etc. Volume stats aren't really all that useful in a vacuum.

Yah I know you can’t compare them one to one exactly but I think a lot of people either overated luck based on potential or under rate brissett because he wasn’t some stud prospect.  I hope as the season goes on we can bump this thread and update it so we can see how brissett compares to luck.  Obviously I would rather have luck but I don’t think he’s head and shoulders above brissett either. I can’t wait to see how the season plays out either way.

Luck with his higher ceiling probably could get away with INTs, just like Peyton. Brissett, because of a lower ceiling, plays within his limitations without taking too many chances and thus keeps us in games, and if the support comes through in the form of the running game, D and ST, his efficiency will be magnified. If the D comes out flat like the first 2 drives for the Falcons in the second half, Brissett can only shoulder so much, IMO.

 

That is why, we will be an underrated team even if we continue building our D and OL but we will win more games if we play more complete games in all 3 phases. Ballard will put his money where his mouth is, on building a complete team that is not dependent on the QB, no matter who it is and it will become more important with Brissett.

Of course comparisons will be made between Luck and Brissett just like they compared Luck to Peyton. Fair or not, it'll happen. 

 

All I'm going to say, is Brissett has been playing WAAAAAYYYYY better than most thought he would.

Look, i respect what you’re trying to do and i agree with the sentiment. But we as fans need to give Brissett the chance to be his own self. Luck was always compared to Manning and that drove me nuts. Both were dang good QBs and guys. Brissett will probably always be compared to Luck, which given the multitudes of differences just in team make up and the roster, will be unfair to both.

 

that said, I think the biggest thing you’re going to see between the two is that Brissett will have fewer “Superman” style plays but his INT ratio is going to remain rather low. He seems to know to throw it away versus forcing bad throws.

 I can understand using Manning as a yard stick. But I just didn't witness that kind of (consistant) greatness from Luck where he should be used in a comparison.

 Brissett was being commended (in game 3) with throwing spot on, to the proper shoulder, telling his pass catchers which way they needed to break after the catch.
  Hahaha!  He was Throwing BBZ.

 Our last QB never learned to do it. P.T. Harbaugh, what a salesman.
  This is so much fun to watch. Reich & Siriani had some kool plays yesterday.
 And they will continue to build the offense, add wrinkles week to week.

I think most will naturally compare, so I don't think there is a problem discussing it.  

 

Brissett is surprising me with his command of the field, decision making, and accuracy.  He is actually doing something Luck didn't do very well, which is to accurately place the ball in the receiver's space, not just put it anywhere within catch range.   To that extent, he is better suited to this offense than Luck is.  Luck is more suited to Arians style.  That's a generalization, but because of it, I don't miss Luck.

 

I thought we would be wanting to look for a new Qb come this spring, but I think I'm going to be wrong about that.

 

Luck's stats will be inflated relative to Jacoby's because he threw the ball downfield more, IMO.  If Jacoby can throw a few more chunk TDs, he'll be better overall statistically when factoring in completion percentage and turnovers along with yards and TDs.

That's a fact, Jack.  He got the yards and the wins, and I guess that's what matters, but he seemed to only be able to play one way, and the NFL is moving away from that because that is the way QBs get hurt.

 

I like the way JB plays.  If he can hone his craft with experience, we'll be in a better place, IMO.

This.  Luck took a few weeks to get into a groove because of coming back from injury.

 

Also totally agree on passer rating.  The formula used counts both yards per attempt and completion percentage in it.  So it effectively gives double points to completion percentage.

 

A QB who goes 40 for 40 for 100 yards is given the same passer rating as one who goes 20 for 40 for 325 yards.

Brissett will likely never get close to Luck's stats, for which I'm very thankful, because

 

Good running game and playing with a lead = lower stats

Bad running game and always trying to comeback = inflated stats

Discuss yes, but the premise of the comparison in the OP is flawed. 

 

I tend to agree it's not about the gaudy volume numbers as much now, but about efficient offense. 

 

To your point about ball placement, IMO his only pick came on making a bad decision, and then compounding that by not not putting the ball in a place only TY was going to make an (unlikely) catch.

I agree with that.  Week to week is probably not going to be comparable, unless a lot of adjustments are made.

 

The one chunk pass he had to TY down the sideline was probably supposed to be a back shoulder catch.  But even that was under thrown and the catch was completed by TY making a great play on the ball.  And I think another was pretty high and hard to Ebron, who made a very good catch to save it.

 

JB's better than Luck in this offense so far, IMO, but I don't know if his intermediate or long ball accuracy is as good at this point.  That may be an issue down the road.

There are a lot of callers on the radio saying they think the team is better with Brissett because the players connect with him more then they did with luck.

Man Luck was pretty great.  He threw bad INTs on occassion.  But he covered up a lot of ugly.

It sounds silly but I see where they are coming from. Luck struck me as a guy who didn’t really hang out with the other players much off the field.

A lot of people are saying JB seems to be a better leader then Luck.  The players really rally around his charisma. They aren’t talking talent but are talking  how JB gets the players to run through a brick wall for him.

I don't ever  recall hearing anything negative about Lucks leadership.  He seemed to take some pretty untalented teams quite far before the injuries, and then they had  apretty good 3 months last year.

Bad analogy.  Brady is fairly well known for opening his home for his teammates

I think his leadership seemed to be more with his play on the field then a vocal charismatic leader. Brissett seems to be so easy to root for.

Hate the comparison. How many of those INTs early last year came on drops, I remember 2 or 3. How many can on poor line play. They're are some many variable. I have seen Andrew go from a top 5 franchise QB by football people to an overrated non leader on this site. Ridiculous!

He also fumbled in 50% of his games. And had more BBs at the line than any Qb that I ever seen. And besides, I wrote (constant) greatness. If you feel he showed that, so be it. Cheers

I’d say we had great QB play when Luck was on the field  yes.  Now if you say the unavailability is what makes his greatness not constant then yes, obviously.  He was not great the year he didn’t play.

 

The best ability is availability.

Some pretty preposterous things are being thrown around here. I'd advise against bringing up this comparison if you want to feel good about our QB in the long run.

As others have already pointed out, you’re off with this assumption. 

 

You can like Brissett without pulling down Luck you know?

I didn’t mean to start a bash luck/bash brissett debate or a debate on who is better. I more or less meant to show people that brisett in his own way has been better than even I thought. I know the stats I posted aren’t everything but it’s at least a glance at a moment in time. If you just take these three games in comparison than yes it’s not really comparable because luck was coming off injury but I hope to update this as the season goes on just to show how things stacked up. Basically I’m trying to shine light on the inevitable conversation of “what if luck would have stayed?”  It would at least give us some insight and ability to compare the two as the season went on. Also I didn’t do it Because luck is the end all be all best Qb ever......that would be #18:) but I just wanted to put things in a little bit better perspective.   Hope this helps explain the point here and helps knock off some of the pointless arguing and nit picking.

Best left unsaid. All this is accomplishing is to put a wedge between Colt fans pitting Brissett against Luck. It serves no useful purpose. Brissett is the Colt QB and the only thing that matters is did he play good enough to help the team win. Andrew is history as a Colt QB and I hope he is very successful in his next pursuit.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
