Brissett getting some MVP/ProBowl love?

Lol at the idea that Brissett needs to work on his turnovers. Unless of course, if one is saying all QB's need to work on that. I said this 3 weeks ago, and I'll say it again...

 

For some, there is no convincing. Some will look for reasons to not believe in JB.

I know, he has 5 turnovers all year = 3 INT's and 2 fumbles and some people are going to complain about that?? That isn't even 1 turnover a game.

Only eight QBs have fewer turnovers than Brissett

But you just wait till a team shuts down the Colts running game and he has to throw the ball to move the chains!

 

Well.......er........um, nevermind. I uh,....guess he did that......:D

If he can get some better games like he just did yesterday, then yes he may be a 1st Ballot MVP contender, right now he's above most in the race, He is most likely a Pro-Bowler if he keeps putting up these numbers.

I think it was on Kevin Bowen’s podcast this morning he mentioned how much JB has been working with the QB coach on keeping his eyes downfield. If he keeps up this improvement he can be very good to elite. With his arm and good weapons I think the sky is the limit. He will have bad games. Even luck had bad games. We just need consistency from here on out. He is clearly a good starter in this league.

This is good, hopeful info. Thanks for sharing.

I saw on ESPN this morning that they thought the Colts may have a great chance to go to the Superbowl! Maybe top 5.  Let's hope so!

No he didn't.  He had a 95 QBR for the season prior to the Houston game.  Now's it's just over 100

No he didn't, and no he doesn't. You're probably looking at passer rating. This weeks game brought him a bit above 50.

my first reply was while I was on a tablet and I hate typing on a tablet but I did want to expand a bit of my response.

 

yes, I was thinking the traditional Qb rating or passer rating.  And from the little I read of the QB and the methodology it does seem to be a more accurate rating than the passer rating.  There was a QB a while ago, Rob Johnson, where team mates actually accused him of taking sacks rather than throwing the ball away or possibly getting a turnover to keep his passer rating up.  So I have always thought that any QB rating that does not factor in sacks or, for example,  throwing a 3 yard pass on 3rd and long was not an accurate gauge.

 

And the numbers from the QBR seem to match what I have been seeing.  While Jacoby has impressed me more than I thought he would, I have mentioned a few times that his yards per attempt and yards per completion have been very low.

 

So thanks again for providing the link.

nope avoid it then too you either have everyone acting like the world is ending if we lose or you have people acting like JB is Tom Brady after a win both are annoying extremes that I can't stand. so it's easier to avoid it a couple days than have to face palm every 5 posts.

 Last season i watched our "generational QB" start the season dinking and dunking us to a 1-5 record. I am remembering all those dunks to Hines and Rogers.
 I can't wait to see what our YPA/YPC is over the last 8 games. A Funchess, Campbell, return, and a possible Cain Awakening just might help our Stats now that our O is starting to settle in.
 Frank keeps saying we are just getting started. I don't understand why it is so hard for experienced fans to not get and expect this to be so considering our many young players.

It was a concern last year as well.  It may improve, Reich and Co. like to change things up about every 3-4 weeks.  But just because something happened before and turnaround does not mean it will do so again.

Also from the games I've watched Tom Brady hasn't been very good this year, and that's against the terrible teams

Passer rating was much more reliable when the league was full of pocket passers. These days, not so much, and gets less reliable every year as we increase the number of dual threat QBs. I always look at the expanded QBR data (as well as NexGen, PFF, and FO) when trying to really compare QBs. There's really no perfect measurement out there IMO.

 

It's going to be very interesting to see how JB performs going forward. There's no doubt he was exceptional vs Houston, and it was a huge coming out day for him. Next week he'll play vs a very good passing defense unlike Houston (Houston is bottom 5 while Denver is top 5). Will Reich go back to a run heavy attack while not allowing JB to do much, or will he strive for balance. I love that Reich attacked Houston's weakness and had the confidence in JB to call that game plan, I'd just love to see that same confidence vs a tougher secondary.

 

And yes, his yards per completion have been low, but they were a bit better last week. Not sure if that is because Houston's passing D stinks in general, Houston was basically playing with 2nd, 3rd, and PS DBs, JB is getting better, or Reich's game plan simply included more deep 1st reads. Probably a mix.

It's funny, Luck's two highest passing games last year were against Houston.  It seems like Reich and Sirianni have Crennel's D figured out pretty well.

Yeah, Reich seems to have coached circles around BOB and Crennel so far. We were scheming guys open like crazy on rub/crossing routes.

Houston's pass defense stinks. They are bottom 5 this year, and were bottom 5 last year. Then add in all the DB injuries they had last week. I give credit to Reich for putting the game in JB's hands, but frankly every team going against Houston is trying to attack them with passing.

Even though Houston’s pass defense sucks you could still see the improvements in JB game. It wasn’t all houston.

I agree. I thought JB's touch on a few throws looked much better than in previous weeks. He still strong armed a few but you can tell he's trying to focus a bit on that aspect. His TTT was still pretty bad, and frankly I expected that come down vs Houston. The OL held up pretty good so it didn't impact the game. His air yards improved a tiny bit, but I would have liked to see him take more deep shots given the injury situation with Houston's DB.

 

This week's game will be a good test and tell us a lot about JB IMO. Denver isn't particularly good at sacking or INTing QBs, but they are good at limiting yardage. I expect our OL to hold, but it won't be like shooting fish in a barrel like Houston was. While Denver isn't as big of game as Houston in terms of overall talent, it's a bigger game for JB to show what he can do. I do expect us to run it a bunch, but I still want to see JB be more than game manager.

Denver has a very good pass defense. I do not expect a repeat unless chris Harris is traded by the end of the week. There  are very good defenses out there that even elite QB struggle with. I mean Brady did nothing against the bills defense. So just because every game doesn’t end up like Sunday that doesn’t mean he isn’t improving or regressed.  We are going to be different in how we attack each game.

I'm not saying JB needs to throw for 300 vs Denver. What I am saying is he needs to play well against them (no more sub 50 QBR games) and keep up the momentum while improving key areas.

    • Chad Kelly needs to play the final 3 games. Houston and Tenn are both 8-5 and will face Sunday, so we are eliminated anyway. Play Kelly and see what you have in him. If we're lucky, he'll look great and we won't have to draft a QB early in the draft next year. Nothing to gain from starting Brissett and Hoyer. Brissett is regressing and Hoyer is who he is. See what you have in Kelly.
    • The root of the problem goes back to Grigson, who couldn't draft an O-Line for Luck to save his life. It ultimately forced Luck to retire and it put us in the situation we are in today. We went from a possible SB contender to a team that is struggling to make the playoffs. Don't let Ballard fool you, it is about one person, it was about Luck just like it was about Manning. The QB is half the value of the team. I'm guessing Luck was worth 5 wins this year. We have been set back 3 years and our QB of the future is not on this roster.   Basically, we're not doing crap until we fill the QB position with solid play, and that could take years. I'm at the point where I don't care until I see who we draft. Rest of this season is meaningless unless Chad Kelly starts a game or two and dominates.
    • Brissett is a bad QB. He takes too long to throw the ball because he's scared to make a mistake. Won't throw deep. Won't scramble. Poor field vision. Makes an elite O-Line average at pass-blocking. Has regressed since teams have tape on him. Has trouble putting up any sort of yards or points unless we run for 100+ yards per game. Can't carry the team or lead it to victory. He's easily replaceable. Potential all but gone. He's done like dinner. Not even fun to watch.   I don't care who we draft at QB, anything is better than what we currently have. At least a new QB will have potential and a new skillset. There will be some hope. We're in a horrible spot right now, and another year of Brissett would drop attendance faster than a skydiver from an airplane. I certainly can't go through another year of this.   You at least have to give the illusion of hope to draw me in. A new QB does that. With Brissett, there is none.
    • It’s all good crazy coLt we are both colts fans and rooting for the same team. I don’t wanna argue with a colts fan. I will save it for a pats fan or Texans fan. I just wanted to defend why I was saying what I was saying. It hits a nerve to me when people criticize other people’s colts related threads no matter how monotonous it’s become, even if that’s not how you meant it.  Have a merry Christmas   
    • Dude, u call this bashing?  I barely said anything about the guy and merely asked the question if it was him or coaching. How is that bashing?  And by you complaining that this thread was started you basically said that this thread is unwelcome. Am I losing my mind here people or what??  Again im not sure it’s brissett that’s why I’m asking. There is anecdotal evidence it could be him but I’m not so sure. It could be other teams are dialing more pressure near the end of the games or we are running too much and getting stuffed to keep the clock running. I’m not trying to argue here I’m just basically defending what I wrote.
