When a QB has nearly 30 starts in his career, regardless of the circumstances, you know whether or not you have a franchise QB. If anyone has doubts about Jacoby at 27 years old and nearly 30 starts then he isn't the franchise QB.
There seems to be 2 thoughts regarding Brissett this season.
1. He is a franchise QB if the Colts upgrade the receivers and they stay healthy.
2. He is terrible and should be replaced as soon as possible.
The truth is somewhere between those two thoughts.
Jacoby would be better if he played with better receivers but that doesn't mean that Jacoby becomes a franchise QB. This doesn't mean the Colts don't need to upgrade that position group though.
Jacoby is not terrible. He is a QB a team can make the playoffs with and going on a run. But he is not an elite QB. So if the Colts come across someone in the draft who they view as being elite, or the potential to become elite, they will absolutely select him and let him sit a year or two behind Jacoby.
The Colts can believe in Jacoby as a starter but still look to upgrade that position if the right player comes along.
When Hurts got pulled at half time 2 years ago in the national title game for true Freshman Tua that was all I needed to see. They interviewed Sabin after the game and asked why he put Tua in and he said “Because we needed to throw the ball and I thought he could do it better”. Pretty much a clear indication that Hurts isn’t exactly an amazing passer.
Then he goes to a coach who produced back to back Heisman QBs And has a turnaround and people want to act like it’s anything other than scheme. Hurts isn’t good; Lincoln Riley is.
I want no parts of Hurts. Give me Love all day
thats because they are getting better, 3 of the top 4 this year are pretty good runners
they dont always get hurt and slow down either, never happened to vick
and so what if lamar doesnt play until hes 40, he might win a super bowl or two by the time hes 30. that would be worth it to me.
as for cam, hes had a good career. could have been better with a Qb minded coach
