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.

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.

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

    • You want an example of a team who has been consistently beat up and had significantly limited snaps for numerous starters, yet weathered the storm and are sitting pretty at the top of their division? The Kansas City Chiefs.    All pro MVP QBs missed games and they brought in a guy who was retired to fill in for a few weeks and played quality football. Tyreek Hill has his suspension at the start of the year, arguably the best WR in the game for my money, on a pure talent standpoint that is. Sammy Watkins has missed time, Damien Williams has missed time. Their number one overall pick and LT missed half the year, and their two guards have missed a couple games each. Hardly the continuity that we’ve had on our trenches.    And that doesn’t even get to the other side of the ball. They lost their cornerstones on the edge before the season in Ford and Houston (glad we got Houston, always liked that guy and he’s been the definition of solid), and they replaced them with Frank Clark and Alex Okafor, both downgrades who have missed a few games. Chris Jones, a certifiable stud in the middle of their defensive line has been banged up and missed a few games. Kendall Fuller, their best corner, missed a few games.    Sorry y’all but using the ‘we lost our starter that the beginning of the year’ excuse is a cop out. He retired, it was unfortunate, but with all the high praises Brisket was receiving from Ballard and Reich, the contract extension, they were clearly expecting more. Losing Hilton for a few weeks was unfortunate, but hardly debilitating considering he’s been putting up the worst numbers of his career since he was a rookie. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why that may be. Brissett doesn’t make his progressions or try to stretch the deep to intermediate routes.    Losing a rookie in Campbell doesn’t matter either. He was a rookie and the downgrade to Pascal has seemed to be an upgrade to me. Losing Funchess was quite simply an unknown. Could he have had a Calvin Johnson type year? Sure, but that’s not the smart bet. He was signed to play with Luck because he excelled at the routes that Luck excelled at throwing to. So we signed a guy for 13 million to play twenty snaps with the wrong QB. I just don’t think he would have made a bit of difference. The difference between losing Mack and giving the carries to Williams and Wilkins has not exactly broken the team either. Williams with two straight hundred yard games, can’t ask for better than that ina relief role. Losing Ebron is an addition by subtraction with the critical drops he had and the fact that him being on the field made the offense even more predictable than usual.    Bottom line is, every team is beat up? I reckon with a QB that had any willingness to throw downfield and the accuracy to do so, this team would be fighting for the number one seed. 
    • Luck isn’t a free agent.   He’s the property of some team that plays in Indiana.   If Luck plays for the Raiders someday it’s only because they’ve agreed to a trade with the Colts. 
    • No Brainer Bengals (projected #1 pick) -If they don't take Burrow, they'll have sunk to a new low... And that's really low being it's the Bengals.   Probably/Maybe Miami (projected #4 pick, 22, and 25) - Needs one, but they have a lot of holes, and a lot of picks. Fitzmagic is also sitting in the top 10 of QBRs right now. Why take Tua this year knowing he has to sit out a year, when you can lose-for-Lawrence next year if needed. Assuming Cinci takes Burrow, their best option for "now" might be Herbert. I could also see them using all that draft capital to trade back (and into next year), or use to fill holes and perhaps take a gamble on a guy like Winston or Newton for a year to see if they can turn things around. They have enough draft capital to do whatever they want this year or next.   Chargers (9) - If Herbert is available to them, I think they pull the trigger. Maybe Tua as they have the ability to be patient.     Coin Flip Carolina (12) - Tough call. I think they stay with Cam with the new coaches. If they do go in another direction, Cam will get a job somewhere.   Tampa Bay (14) - This is another tough call. If you clean up his INTs, he's pretty good. If they improved their pass D, they wouldn't need Winston to do so much. Winston would probably get a shot with someone who thinks they can coach his decision making.   Indy Colts (17) - I think Irsay forces the issue. Colts have the draft capital to move up to #4 without digging into next year's pick if they really wanted to move up. Likely picking in the top 4-5 of the second, they could take a shot there too if they want to gamble. A lot of options...     Doubt it, but you never know Denver (11) - I think they will stay with their QB drafted last year. They need a lot of other things and could actually see them trading back.   New Orleans - (28) - Brees turning it on nicely after shaking the rust off. He is old though. If the right guy is available late like Love, you never know.   New England (29) - I think they like Stidham. I wouldn't be shocked to see them take a QB late if a guy like Love is available. They need WR, TE, and OL more than anything.   No QB NYG (2) - Jones is their guy WAS (3) - Doubt they are giving up on Haskins ATL (5) - No way they part ways with Ryan DET (6) - Stafford was top 10 QBR before getting dinged up ARI - (7) - Murray is #11 QBR and coming along NYJ - (8) - Not giving up on Darnold  JAX - (10+20) - It's messy, but no need to add to the mess PHI - (13) - Wentz isn't going anywhere CLE - (15) - They need a new coach, not a new QB RAI - (16+18) - Carr is playing pretty well (13th QBR) TEN - (19) - Playing well with Tannehill DAL - (20) - they need to resign theirs..  MIN - (23) - Cousins playing well KAN - (24) - duh BUF - (26) - Not sold on their QB, but they're not done with him yet GB - (27) - duh SF - (30) - Jimmy isn't a star, but he is improving, and managing well BAL - (31) - duh SEA - (32) - duh CHI - Doesn't have a draft pick in the first. 
    • I’m going to stay optimistic until the fat lady sings. Defense rises to occasion and the Colts keep Winston & Co on the sideline with a big game from Mack, Hines, Doyle and Pascal. Maybe a play or two from Cox.   I have tickets to the Saints game and I’m hoping they’re still alive.    Colts 27   Bucs 20
