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

    • There is some truth to that, but odds are that you do better with the pick in the top 15.  The player you want is more likely to be there at 13 rather than 18.   Good players can be taken anywhere, but your odds improve with the better pick position.  
    • Go with Brissett against the Saints.  There is still a shot at the playoffs.   Assuming we lose that game, start Kelly the last 2 games.  There is no downside.   It gives the fans what they want.  It gives the coaches and Ballard a look at what Kelly is.  Worst case is that we lose both games and gain draft position.   It's not tanking.    If Kelly doesn't get some playing time, I think we go into next season with Jacoby as the starter and Hoyer as the back up again.  They signed Hoyer to a 3 year $12 million contract with $9 million guaranteed.  
    • One of two things will happen with Luck. He'll either return next year (I can see Irsay making a plea to him based on our QB position and so we don't have to draft a QB) or he'll stay permanently retired. This is a perfect chance for him to return where INDY and the fanbase will welcome him back with open arms. It's next year or never for Luck.
    • Another wide or TE! Why? JB would not throw the ball to them unless it was to late! JB is to timid. He's scared to fail. Therefore, we have to have another QB. If we don't, i believe it will be major mistake. Oh, for all of you JB hine kissers, if you don't like threads like this don't read them. I don't care what you dislike! If you can't see the weakness in JB then ....... WOW!
    • Last time he was seen was at the Colts facility during the bye week. He was JACKED! Looked bigger, like a baby Hulk.
