What do you want to see from JB today?

Recommended Posts

Could be a breakout game for JB today. Houston's going to key on stopping our rushing attack, and will likely pay a ton of attention to TY. At the same time, 3 of Houston's starting DBs are "questionable" (2 CBs and 1 S).

 

Houston isn't great vs the pass anyway, regardless of injury, so will Reich try to exploit and ask JB to do more?

 

What I'd like to see from JB today.

 

1) Decreased TTT (time to throw). JB has ranked near the bottom in TTT, and given he also ranks bad in air yards, he really needs to improve here. Hoping the game will start to slow down for him and he can improve in diagnosing and going through progressions.

 

2) Increased air yards. Not saying I want JB to toss a bunch of bombs, but I would like to see him connect on a few per game. We're making it easy on opposing Ds to key on run stopping, as well as clogging the middle and doubling TY.

 

3) While I want to beat Houston by 100, I'd love to see JB be put into a place late in the game where he needs to win the game for us. And I'd like to see him succeed. I think it's critical that he builds confidence in the next 4 games, and has blossomed before going into the last 7 games of the season.

 

What do you want to see?

he needs to go deep ; the main problem is our wide receivers can't get separation , besides ty.

cain pascal, rodgers  are horrible getting open.  jb would be much better with weapons , everybody is doubling ty .   

 

look at brady or mahomes their wrs get wide open with no one within 7 yards most game .

As much as I want to see JB have a break out game (along with TY), the best thing he can do is minimize turnovers, maximize first downs, and put points on the board whenever possible.  He doesn't need to throw for 300 yards or 4 TD's to do that.  Play efficiently.  Play smart.

Actually, not true. Right now, Ebron (1.6), Doyle (1.65), Pascal (1.5), and Rogers (2.09) all have better separation stats than TY (1.04). This doesn't mean TY stinks or is slow, it means he's getting doubled and is the focus of the opponents D.

 

Announcers also commented several times about open WRs downfield that weren't seen (Cain was one specifically mentioned). JB also ranks 28th in AGG% (% of time a QB tries to force it into tight window), which is likely a result of him keying in on a well covered TY too much.

A win is the most important thing easily. 

I do think it's crucial for JB to progress though, and this is a great opportunity.

Few texans fans are saying  a blow out win in their favor

Personally I think they are delusional. I do think it will be a tough game, which is why I really want to see JB ball out and have a great game. While I don't think he needs to throw 300 to win, I just want to see him improve in few areas and take the team on his back late in the game.

JB did say deep balls are coming. I don't know if that means he feels that he has improved his vision/reads/progressions, or it simply means we're going to see more plays with the first read  designed long.

Target the tight ends. Houston will key in on stopping the run and TY, so why not just dink and dunk down the field with Jack, Ebron, and MAC? We need to stretch Houston’s defense with the tight ends and WRs so we can ram it down their throat with Mack. I think we might see some Hines action in the slot too. Really all we need from JB is for him to manage the game and hit his routes, and maybe a couple of deep shots to TY. I don’t think we’ll keep up on defense, so we need to keep Watson off the field and grind out the game.

Confidence and ball control.  Good things will come from that.  Nevermind stats, nevermind TDs, good things come if you are confident and manage the game well

I don’t know what people wanted to see but what they are seeing is him playing a masterful half vs the Texans minus the fumbled snap.

Looking pretty darn good so far. Only one truly bad pass (to Doyle). I won't lie, the fumble hurt and costs us, but overall I love that Reich is putting the game in his hands.

On first watch this was probably the best game in Jacoby's career. I loved most of everything I saw today.

Boy’s we got us a QB.

Yeah I think at this point it would be very hard for JB to cost himself his job.  Great work tonight

It's only one game, but boy it was a good one. 

 

Next three games I expect to see a ton of Mack given Denver, Pitt, and Miami aren't great against the run, but I just hope they continue to let JB "get his" in the passing game.

All the above happened! Quick, what are the winning lottery numbers

    • It's a pretty darn good roster overall. Folks poo pooing this roster simply have a singular and Colts-centric view and little knowledge of the rest of the league. We've come such a long way in a couple years. Sure we have places that still need upgrades but if you compare the units/positions from 4 years ago, the transformation is pretty obvious.    That said, it's a lot easier to improve a very bad roster, and it gets harder as the overall depth and talent improve. Replacing bad with average makes a big difference. Now we're trying to replace the average, trying to build depth behind the good, and bring in guys to eventually replace the aging good.    I've said for a while, I love what Ballard is doing, but his job was easier early on. It's what he does now and in the next couple years as it gets harder, that is what is important.    As far as Reich goes, I like him a lot, but I'm still on the fence with him a bit. I give him a pass for this year as his talent at QB took a major hit. The only thing I'd ding him on is lack of QB development/improvement. I don't necessarily blame him though as I think JB has just hit his ceiling and not sure he'll ever improve some of the basics he struggles with. He has had some real duds in terms of game plans though. 
    • If I had to guess, it's not that they necessarily love JB as if he was top tier guy, it's that's there's no clear moves to improve the position through the draft. And even though I think a guy like Andy Dalton is probably a sizable improvement to JB, people aren't going to accept that..
    • These Colts are playing just bad enough to lose, last season they played just good enough to win. Biggest difference? Maybe the qb position, maybe Milton on special teams(titans special teams are playing very well this year), maybe injuries(but every team has injuries) This losing streak has been very puzzling. This will be a tough offseason because this team has been very disappointing, and then you look at that steeler team that is winning with nothing, oh well, hat's off to them.
    • I saw Paul Krause play with the Vikings. I agree he’s an all time great, but there are some other safeties other than Ed Reed you could pull off that list and replace with Krause.  The receivers should be real interesting because of the defensive rule changes allowing modern receivers to pile up yardage. It’s kind of hard to compare era’s. Look at the yardage of Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne. 1A and 1B. Very similar in yardage.   
    • Hurts has a 200 passer rating and 32/7 TD/INT ratio, I'd say he's okay at throwing the ball.
