Everyone should go listen to Reich taking questions from fans on the colts App. Good questions about the passing game and Jacoby. He know we need a few more big plays.


But will we get them? We'll see...

Yeah, again, we'll see. Funchess won't be coming back for a few weeks, but I do think he'll be targeted a lot. As for Campbell, as much as I'm a fan, we'll see how he's worked in once he comes back. Which I doubt will be for 2-3 weeks as well after having an abdomen procedure.

Funchess can return to practice next week. He can return either the Miami or jags game. Reich mentioned yesterday on his Q and A with Matt Taylor that he is looking forward to getting him back. Funchess also posted a IG story saying he is on his way back. Sirriani mentioned he has been in all the meetings and has been working out at the facility. He has such a fun personality I am sure he will bring a lot of juice to the team.

Now if we only could  get cain or Campbell  to step up along with funchess  return our offense  could become  more dynamic

Can you guys and gals spot a problem in this play from Brissett:

 

 

He looked a lot better in the first several weeks with his pocket presence, but this is something I've noticed get worse lately. He's leaving clean pockets more than is ideal. He had Paschal open on a corner route if he just stayed in his clean pocket and went through his progression. 

I complained about that literally the entire chiefs game.

No. Receivers seemed to be covered, defenders ready to make a pick. Maybe has the check down out to the left flat to Mack ( it seemed the corner was where he intended to throw it, but pulled it back in, it wasn't a designed pump fake).

Nothing opens up waiting in that pocket, that I can see.

He leaves the pocket and barely escapes outside the box to unload it out of bounds and avoid a sack or grounding.

Exactly, people rag on him for not looking downfield more, so on a play he passes up that check down to Mack and winds up throwing it out of bounds. Then they say he missed open receivers. There was nothing wrong with what he tried to do, that side of the field had two one on ones and if he can get out of the pocket he forces those DBs to make some really tough decisions. It just didnt work, but there was nothing wrong with it whatsoever. He might have had a TD if he could've got on the edge.

 

And that's really why I just want him to take that check down every single time it's there. Because that is what eventually will open things up down field for him. That is good QB play to me. Not how far he throws it, or how often he chucks it deep. Take what they give you. 

 

I know I come across as a total dick about this stuff and I dont like that I look that way because I'm not that type of person at all. But damn.

He is a backup. That is what he was originally signed for. He will never be a franchise QB no matter how much wishfull thinking is put out there. We are a mediocre team with a mediocre QB. This is what we have this year. There is no way this team can lean on him to win a game when push comes to shove. Otherwise we would not need threads like this.

I saw nothing through the first Q and early Q2.  This was the next down (3rd)

He bailed the pocket again, threw it out of bounds again, but allowed Vinny a 32 yard FG to tie the game.

 

Going to watch more tomorrow. Done with it for tonight.

May be true, but if anyone is going to point out deficiencies, give me the full footage or where to look at it/them myself. I prefer the latter. I do have All 22 coaches video, from 2 angles in HD and can run slo-mo / freeze frame.

If he is ready to go, the earliest he could play is the November 10th home game vs. the Dolphins.

It’s actually the jags game because the bye week don’t count. Andrew walker of the colts clarified that on twitter today.

I don't believe that. I know for fact that in 2012, this was the wording-

 

Only players with a “major injury” who are placed on the IR list...

 

A major injury is described as an injury that renders the player unable to practice or play football for at least six weeks — or 42 calendar days — from the date of injury.

 

That designated player is eligible to return to practice if he has been on the IR list for at least six weeks from the date he was placed on Reserve. He is eligible to return to the active list if has been on the IR list for at least eight weeks from the date he is placed on Reserve.

 

The only change to that since is now up to 2 players can return, and I see no bye week exceptions anywhere, either.  I'd like to see that in NFL rules or operations print.

In the NFL you have to make this pass... this corner route to Pascal is open if only he manages to throw it over the DB. You loft it on the outside and let your receiver have a chance. If I sat down and watched every single game, I can probably find 5-10 very similar throws just last week in the NFL. (look at my edit at the end of the post).I'm not entirely sure about the pump fake because they are both in his reasonable line of sight, but IMO when he pulled it down he wasn't going to throw it to Pascal. He was looking at the crossing route to TY when he pump faked(after he gave up on the Pascal route early). Again - hard to tell in this situation because they are both in that general line of sight.

He barely escapes because he leaves the pocket. The pocket was about as good as you can imagine it after several seconds of protection and the chance of a sack or grounding probably increased when he left it.  

 

edit: Just watched it again and on a second watch... maybe that throw to Pascal is indeed too risky because the DB is already drifting backwards. He missed a dropping defender in a similar situation later when he threw the pick to Ebron. But still the point about him leaving a clean pocket stands. The more clean pockets he leaves the more throws he will miss.

You guys gotta give Brissett time to develop. His ceiling doesn't need to be incredibly high, but just high enough. He needs to make some longer throws, and I know this not happening has fans on edge, but I was talking to a Bill's fan who has watched Brissett and he told me that he has improved tremendously in accuracy. 

 

He deserves the year and if he finishes how he started I would be fine with him finishing out his contract. Hes got the character. Hes got the work ethic. Give him some time. Brady wasnt Brady in his first starting season. 

 

Like I said. Brissett needs to be just a tiny bit better than he is for this team to not need to worry about the QB position, imo. 

 

This next draft needs to be oline and dline heavy.. Invest more in the lines and take both sides to the next level.

I was listening to a stampede blue podcast today. The guy went on like a 2 min long rant about fans need to give him time. He mentioned everything that has been said by some of us about how he lost his number 2 WR and has two young guys who he barely had snaps with. Campbell had one day of TC. Cain and Campbell took all preseason game. snaps from walker and Kelly. It’s going to take a little time.  I am actually terry impressed with what he has done with basically just TY. Had 1 1/2 games without TY. You wouldn’t put this kind of pressure on a guy we drafted after 20 games. That’s JB starting experience. Give him time. I don’t think it will take long.

So when @ColtsBlueFL posts his analysis where’s the “your no expert” rant. Is it because it suits your own opinion? 
 

@stitches at least attempted to show why he has that opinion. More than most do on here.

for the love of....

 

Most people aren’t saying don’t give him time, it’s been clearly stated by many on here they are happy to wait and see. 
 

But that doesn’t mean ignoring some aspects of his play so far. Your misrepresentation continues.

JB basically has what Luck had last year, plus more. In training camp, he had everyone but PC and Cain was on a pitch count. In preseason snaps, he had pretty much the same WRs and TEs that Luck had last year (except for Inman) in Rogers, Pascal, TY, Ebron, MAC, and also got Doyle back. Rogers was basically Luck's most consistent #2 last year... 

 

Sure he needs time to develop chemistry with Cain and PC, but he's had plenty of time with the other guys. Like I've said several times, JB's issues is getting beyond the 1st and second read. Based on what we've seen, the majority of fist and second reads have been TY plus Doyle/Ebron. 

 

And I'm happy giving him time. I do want to see sustained and consistent improvement over the next 4 games though. That's a total of 9 games and 10 weeks of practice to get "up to speed".

Secondly,  There is no way that LB is going to make a play on a well thrown crosser to TY.

 

Check to Mack then if you don’t want to throw it.  He has a chance to score with just a flip out to him.p and a block or two.

 

i can’t see what you see in those pics.  Full on panic job by JB.  Poor vision. Inadequate in the long run.

That was my thoughts.  If he was looking to Pascal first (and I'm sure he was), they had high / low bracket coverage, with low guy moving to Pascal but ready to reverse and cover Mack in the flat if he checks down. Big Q has his guy locked up right in the throwing lane to T.Y. but in position to bat down a pass. JB7 pulls it back here. He looks right (that extra 1/2 second) and both receivers are locked up (and actually one falling down in the end zone).

Then decides to escape.

 

Quote

He barely escapes because he leaves the pocket. The pocket was about as good as you can imagine it after several seconds of protection and the chance of a sack or grounding probably increased when he left it.

 

I think he waited a 1/2 second too long to leave.  He would have caused major issues to the defender covering the under receiver had JB7 escaped first and looked at the his options down field second.  Ryan Kelly just couldn't keep Chris Jones engaged long enough and thus he was on JB7 quickly forcing the throwaway once JB7 escaped the tackle box.

Maybe Glow was also inhibiting JB7's escape route too.

That was my feeling. I'd rather try again on 3rd down, or end up with 3 points (the end result), rather than turn over the ball and momentum by forcing it to Pascal there and getting a pick.  I'm not debating other times or other items he has to improve (but I'd like to see them on video before I join the criticism), just saw this one differently is all.

 

I think Reich has to devise and disguise the plays downfield better. And the young WR guys have to learn the plays and improve running the route tree.

Or maybe it's because he didnt claim Brissett "panicked" or act like he knows how good his vision is, and he isnt commenting on his read progressions.....you know things he couldnt possibly know anything about and dont show up on the film anyways.

Maybe at first, but in the spirit of cordial dialog/rebuttal here, we both do expand on our opinions and maybe even come closer to the center in so doing. :)

Thank you for expressing this in much finer words than me. I’m grumpier than usual with posters.
 

It’s interesting seeing how different people interpret the same images/gif/film. At least you have a common starting point about which to form your opinion rather then anecdotal (often wrong) assertions.

That's the play, but only gets back to original line of scrimmage, unless Mack makes the defender coming up miss.  And he might have.

 

Quote

Pascal is open if he Makes a good throw to he boundary.  It’s safe too.  The flat guy ain’t making up 6 yds on a throw to the corner. That play worked as designed for the receivers.

 

The defender was moving back well as underneath blanket, but slowed up once JB7 looked off Pascal and toward T.Y.   Which is understandable because he either has to help tackle T.Y. , or tackle Mack at that point.

 

I'd like to be in the meeting room when coaches went over these with players.

 

Quote

Secondly,  There is no way that LB is going to make a play on a well thrown crosser to TY.

 

Correct, but the D lineman is in the pass lane. He can bat the ball up for grabs.  If T.Y. catches it, he's tackled just beyond the original LOS for a gain of 2. (it was 2nd and 12 from the 14, so true gain of 4)

I agree.  Pascal, no. T.Y., dangerous maybe.

@ColtsBlueFL and @SteelCityColt

 

Three questions for both of you. Not looking really for debate, just your thoughts.

 

1. What do you believe JB's biggest weakness is, and how do you improve it. Is it progressions, touch, vision, etc..

 

2. While JB's downfield attempts have been few (this year and in 2017), he did have a pretty darn good success rate in 2017. Do you think his lack of attempts downfield this year are more due to Reich's play calling, or JB's inability to get beyond the second read and/or let the play develop.

 

3. What changes would you make to the O right now (play calling or existing personnel) if you could.

I dont really agree with that. 

 

If you're objective is to learn more about Jacoby Brissett, the best thing you can do is go watch as much film as you can on every single QB in the league, and create perspective. Not debate with another fan of a differing opinion and use film to justify your opinion. That's not conducive to learning, IMO.

 

We are gonna sit at home and find out if Jacoby is good enough by watching the games, just like we would have without all of that. That is how we will learn. And all that's gonna matter is whether or not the Colts win. There is no moving closer to the center because the center is the game on Sunday, and it comes on it's own time. All we are is the background noise. The only thing that will change minds is Jacoby Brissetts performance over an extended period of time, and that goes for both sides of the debate.

 

I'm all for cordial conversation, but I'm also for proper perspective.

This only refers to the distance between our opinions during the course of dialog on that play, nothing more.

I'm not qualified to answer that from my firsthand knowledge.  I do not have Sunday ticket (which isn't All 22 anyway), and game pass only allows review 'after' the game has completed. I've not watched a single one.  I just started with this Chiefs game, and only got through one half of Q2, so far.

 

Maybe I'll get a chance to watch a lot more of the previous games and form my perspective.  For now I go by those I deem credible via past experiences. But if specifics are given ( game, quarter, time, on a play)  I may look it up and try to see if I agree.

I think he waited a 1/2 second too long to leave.  He would have caused major issues to the defender covering the under receiver had JB7 escaped first and looked at the his options down field second.  Ryan Kelly just couldn't keep Chris Jones engaged long enough and thus he was on JB7 quickly forcing the throwaway once JB7 escaped the tackle box.

This is the thing I disagree about. This is result-oriented rationalization. He didn't wait for half a second too long. The whole point of pass protection is to allow the QB to go through his progressions and have good platform to throw from. Once he leaves he has no protection and he has no good platform to throw off of. This is why off-platform and off-script throws are so impressive and why most of the premier QBs are able to make plays off-script and off-platform. In singular situations you can find instances when the guy would be better off leaving too early rather than waiting until the pocket breaks once you look at the result of the play, but in huge majority of cases and without knowing the end result, it's better for the QB to stay in the pocket and prolong the play and allow his receivers to get open, simply because the off-script plays are much harder to pull off. The base of Brissett's game should be his pocket throwing game and IMO leaving the pocket too early leaves throws on the field for him, especially having in mind that he hasn't shown ability to consistently make plays off-script.

Maybe Glow is also inhibiting JB7's escape route too.

That was my feeling. I'd rather try again on 3rd down, or end up with 3 points (the end result), rather than turn over the ball and momentum by forcing it to Pascal there and getting a pick.  I'm not debating other times or other items he has to improve (but I'd like to see them on video before I join the criticism), just saw this one differently is all.

 

I think Reich has to devise and disguise the plays downfield better. And the young WR guys have to learn the plays and improve running the route tree.

 

 

I can agree with most of this. Brissett's receivers are young and inexperienced right now and they are not doing him any favors with their ball-catching(I was reading some stat where he was top 5 QB with most dropped balls by pass-catchers). I still contend that even with all those issues we should still be able to isolate his play away from his receivers play and his playcallers playcalls and evaluate the quality of his decisions and throws on its own merits.

@ColtsBlueFL and @SteelCityColt

 

Three questions for both of you. Not looking really for debate, just your thoughts.

 

1. What do you believe JB's biggest weakness is, and how do you improve it. Is it progressions, touch, vision, etc..

 

2. While JB's downfield attempts have been few (this year and in 2017), he did have a pretty darn good success rate in 2017. Do you think his lack of attempts downfield this year are more due to Reich's play calling, or JB's inability to get beyond the second read and/or let the play develop.

 

3. What changes would you make to the O right now (play calling or existing personnel) if you could. 

 

2017 was still the old coaching staff, and they threw it down the field more.  i dont remember if Chud himself was still the OC but he ran air coryell

This only refers to the distance between our opinions during the course of dialog on that play, nothing more.

 

Long ago, a Latin teacher taught me-

 

Tempus narrat veritas

 

I guess I just have a different objective. I dont want other peoples opinions bleeding into my own, especially anonymous people on the internet.

 

To each his own.

You are correct. Previous coaching staff ran Air Coryell that relied on a ton of deep field plays(usually, Brissett actually didn't throw that much downfield despite the system). I'm not sure it's very fair to draw too many conclusions from that season though, since Brissett was thrown into that thing with very little preparation and with horrible OLine and coaching staff. Some trends are worth noting, though. For example, not many big time throws, not many turnover worthy plays either... this is something that continues as a trend even this season with Reich as a coach and playcaller and with a pretty good OLine. I'm not quite ready to chalk it up as "it's just who Brissett is" but I'm almost getting there. Still want to see how he develops his game until the end of the season. It's possible he's just a conservative thrower who takes care of the ball to the extreme, but also doesn't take risks with aggressive throws.

I was listening to a stampede blue podcast today. The guy went on like a 2 min long rant about fans need to give him time. He mentioned everything that has been said by some of us about how he lost his number 2 WR and has two young guys who he barely had snaps with. Campbell had one day of TC. Cain and Campbell took all preseason game. snaps from walker and Kelly. It’s going to take a little time.  I am actually terry impressed with what he has done with basically just TY. Had 1 1/2 games without TY. You wouldn’t put this kind of pressure on a guy we drafted after 20 games. That’s JB starting experience. Give him time. I don’t think it will take long. 

 

JB has made a few mistakes and the colts are doing the right thing letting the run game been the focal point of this offense this season. The guy is working on his craft and has already improved.

OK, you're the QB.  You have moved off Pascal, pulled it back from T.Y. , ignored the checkdown to Mack.  You're in a clean pocket and this is what you see as you continue to go through the progressions-

Where are you going with the ball?

Once he leaves he has no protection and he has no good platform to throw off of. This is why off-platform and off-script throws are so impressive and why most of the premier QBs are able to make plays off-script and off-platform.

 

The play broke down, it was defended. Like most QB's, time to make a play with his feet.  I feel he wanted to sprint to the sideline and buy time for a receiver to get open. But Glowinski was in his way making him take a path closer to Chris Jones (who quickly disengaged from Kelly to pursue).

Castonzo  lost his man shortly after JB7 tucked and started to bail.  I don't think it would be long enough for these receivers to break away from their defenders- T.Y., Cain, or especially Ebron, on his butt in the end zone.  Kelly wasn't in great position on Jones, as witnessed how fast he got to JB once he broke out.

Strip sack from the blind side would have been bad. Besides, nobody got open, even with more time!!

This was as JB7 threw it out of bounds.

If I was talented enough to be in his shoes, I would have taken the safety valve to Mack and let him try to make a play.  But I feel JB7 is every bit as talented as Big Ben to extend a play moving out of the pocket when necessary. So we don't see it the same.  The WR are blanketed. I'm not sitting there forever in that case hoping a defender eventually falls down, instead of one of your targets.

 

I've made my case.  (I think the check down to Mack). I'm moving on.

    • What ever QB we draft, Reich will know who the best of the two are between JB and who we draft. If Reich feels like the rook is better than the rook will start IMO. Regarding Jones, Giants aren't that good but he does have arguably the best RB in the league when healthy. I like Mack a lot but imagine if JB had Barkley.
    • LOL.... NYG drafted a QB that was supposed to sit a year. And they had far worse of a team (OL, etc) surrounding him. That didn't go as planned....   All this "Love needs to sit a year", and "JB needs to start another year" is what you'd like to happen, nothing else. And you're right, we don't know what Ballard or Irsay are thinking, but I'm guessing you don't have an inside track on their plans anymore than any of us. There are lots of reasons you wouldn't want a new QB sitting behind a QB like JB, so lets not act like it's a no brainer.   And why do we need to slow down on discussion of drafting out future QB... It's a discussion board. If you don't think that's what we should do, fine it's you're prerogative,  but not sure you need to tell others to "slow down".... The overwhelming majority of folks are ready for the next chapter to begin.    
    • Herbert interest me. Sure he can be looked at as a system QB, but I think all the tools are there
