Week 6 impressions: Brissett

I would take Ryan over Brissett in a heartbeat.  

 

Right now, I would as well.  I'm hoping it would be a little more cloudy by the end of 2019.

 

I remember getting a chuckle from someone asking if the Colts would trade for Matty Ice to be JB7's backup!

 

I've been keeping an eye on Pat Kirwan's thoughts on JB7 (Jim Miller was on board after a couple games) as he was hesitant. But even PK has hinted JB7 is converting him into a believer.  This upcoming game could be the converted cement, if JB7 performs well.

I will go by divisions on what QB's I would take over JB as of now. I am going by eye test and trust more than anything:

 

AFC East - Brady

 

AFC West - Mahomes, Carr, Rivers

 

AFC North - Jackson

 

AFC South - Watson

-Now if JB outplays Watson tomorrow and the Colts win, I may change my mind on this.

 

NFC East - Wentz, Dak

 

NFC West - Wilson, Goff, Jimmy G

 

NFC North - Rodgers, Stafford 

 

NFC South - Brees, Ryan

 

Technically by my eye test and trust I have 15 QB's I would take over JB. So I have JB rated 16th overall after breaking it all down. Top 16 is considered top half of the league. I would take JB over QB's like Cousins, Winston, Trubisky, Mayfield, and Darnold all day long if people are wondering. We also have the 2nd best QB in our division as of now.

@Imgrandojji and @Chloe6124.. which QBs currently in the league would you take over Brissett?

Not a lot of them.  The obvious ones like Watson and Wilson and Mahomes and Rodgers and Brady.  Garoppolo is basically a better version of Brissett, no contest there.  Mayfield used to be a slam dunk, not so much anymore. Before this year I might have also said Rosen but he's seriously damaged goods now.

 

I'm in the minority that think Josh Allen is a good QB in the making, even if he is also a bit of a meathead, I'd take him over Brissett on a team that favors a rushing attack and has a solid OL, we're actually really well built for a 2 way QB right now.  So yeah, add Allen to the list.

 

Beyond that there's a few guys I don't know well enough to judge, Bridgewater looks really good but he's had some serious injury problems. You could make some kind of argument for Cousins, but that's a weird one.  Darnold has potential but hasn't even come close to realizing it.  there's a few more like that.

I am watching ESPN College Football gameday and no matter the QB, they will get criticized. The analysts on there were all over Trevor Lawrence for throwing deep down field and getting picked twice today. Isn't he the same guy that most people say is the next best thing? They were saying he should throw shorter passes and use his check downs more. My point is that is what JB does most of the time to avoid mistakes and people get on him for not throwing deep more. It is just comical to hear analysts say this about the great Trevor.

It’s more what part of the product of now throwing deep is in the long term, i.e. low YAC. You’d have to be hyper efficient to have long term success without decent YAC as a QB and I don’t think there’s many, if any, that have achieved that. 
 

Time will tell, I don’t disagree with your previous assessment hugely of him being about 16th. I’d have said 16th-20th right now. 
 

Trouble is that’s slap bang in the middle of the “Dalton Scale”.

JB is better than Dalton, I am sure you agree with that but I agree Dalton has had some years where he was top 15 or so. Does JB need to be a top 10 QB for us to win it all? I am not sure he does. If our run game is top 5 and we play good defense.

Right now, yes. I meant previously Dalton epitomised the middle tier QB who would be good enough to win enough games that you’d stick with him, but not good enough to carry you over the top if that makes sense.

Yeah I knew that is what you meant, I think we have a better coach than what Cincy had though. Our run game is much better too. Dalton had a couple of years where you thought, yeah he is top 15 but I never thought Cincy would do much with him in his prime. He didn't have the coach or run game to get it done.

I will take Darnold EASILY over Brissett. Why wouldn't you? Darnold has played some tremendous games when he's been healthy. He's better than Brissett now and he has much more unexplored potential to get much much better. 

 

Allen is a bit of a wild card and a question mark. If you want to increase the variance you probably have to take him over Brissett too. For now, I take Brissett. 

 

Mayfield is weird... I would need the input of our Green beret on this one, because Mayfield has been acting out and has been very erratic with his behavior so I don't know what to make of it. If I get an OK on that count, I would take Mayfield. 

 

For a single game or season I'd take healthy Roethlisberger too, but since he's not healthy and already old, I'm leaning toward Brissett. I take Cousins over Brissett. 

 

I'd take healthy Foles over Brissett. Minshew is a questionmark. It's possible Jax has 2 QBs better than Brissett. I'm gonna split the difference and say I'd take only 1 of them over Brissett. There is nothing(short of career ending injury) either Brissett or Watson could do in a single game that will make me want Brissett over Watson. 

 

I would take Murray over Brissett, too... 

 

I'd take healthy Cam over Brissett, too... 

 

So... a lot of those are conditional on health as you can see... This makes the 15 you listed + 6 more... so this would make Brissett about the 22nd QB on my 'board'.

I did not include Big Ben or Foles because they are gone for the season. Cam is also injured and who knows when he will be back. I like Darnold better than Mayfield, always have but as of now I like JB a tad better than him.

 

I know Brees is coming back so I included him as being better than JB.

honestly  i'll probably stop knocking him if we beat the texans.  that would prove we can beat our rival with JB playing like he does.  

 

i know the mantra is 1-0 every week, but texans appear to have the most raw talent in the division while jags and titans are fading.  Colts probably have the best coaching

In reading the disparaging comments about Brissett, it's funny what a difference a day (Gameday Sunday) makes.

It's almost as if dramatically different types of performances would draw different type of feedback on those performances. Wild, I know.

    • I would expect the Colts to lose a couple more by tomorrow.    I hoping most of the team realizes that IF there is a full season then they have a really good shot to be competitive.
    • I didn't expect Tell to opt out. That's pretty frustrating. I thought he'd be more driven to play since he was young and could earn a starting spot. Oh well. This is going to happen with every team over the next day in losing a couple people.
    • It’s a bummer but not shocked
    • Good thing we signed Carrie. He can play both positions.
    • Understood.  Any person who finds things that don't make sense to them has the right to fill in the facts with speculation and intuition.  That's called connecting the dots, IMO; and that's a big part of life and understanding things as to move forward with decision making.    The idea that is sometimes common on this forum is that people are often criticized for simply expressing an opinion, even a reasoned one, without facts or data to back it up.  That's unrealistic.  Nobody ever has the all of the facts about something before they need/want to have an opinion.     I like your theory about the pain killer addiction.  There was a selfie of him over in Europe where he looked emaciated compared to his normal 6.4 stocky build we're used to, which is how addicts will appear.  Also, while Ballard took a pretty objective look at the situation, which his is job, Irsay was the voice who seemed to leave the door open.  Jimmy had pain killer issues himself and may have been able to see some familiar signs in Luck's behavior and thought there was a greater possibility Luck might change his mind when things cleared up.   With addiction events, people are nervous about falling back into addiction, and the farther removed they are from the incident the more their confidence grows, which can change their outlook and priorities as time passes.
