I don't suspect, JB is going to start throwing a bunch of INT's. 

 

Would be surprised if he ends up with more than 10-12 at the end of the year.

Is this a good or bad thing?  Could it mean he's not pushing the ball down the field as much?  Need more context.  Also, how many fumbles has he lost?

It means we have multiple SB’s in the future and HOF QB in the works

He has thrown for 14 TD's and has ran for a couple so it does show we are pushing it down the field :thmup:. He is on pace to throw for over 30 TD's. Last week was ugly but we won so time to move on to Pittsburgh.

That's NOT true. All but one of his TDs are red zone TDs. His TD stats don't show he's pushing it downfield. In fact as @shastamasta showed in the other thread you can argue it shows the opposite. He's one of the QBs that push it downfield the least in the league. He's 34th out of 39 QBs in Air Yards per completion and 28th out of 39 QBs in intended air yards per attempt.

I did say WE are pushing it down the field, as in running the ball too. Once we get in the redzone, JB is great.

He has had some luck on his side as well as he should have had an interception every game this year but they have dropped them.  I wonder if the reason is the velocity he puts on his passes.

You can say that about every QB in the league.

I think that's the tradeoff JB is making.  Fewer positive splash plays with fewer negative splash plays.  It tends to lead to greater time of possession and probably fewer touchdowns, but also protects the defense.

 

I think JB probably sees the field better than some give him credit for, (I'm not saying its perfect) and he simply chooses the safer option.

If we beat Pittsburgh at Pittsburgh without Andrew Luck that would be a huge win, they don't have Big Ben and we don't have Luck so it is even at least. Winning with a below average QB like JB according to some will be a miracle lmao .

Jimmy G has 9 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on an unbeaten team.  Good thing they have a strong defense.   JB has 14 touchdowns and 3 Interceptions for the Colts.   I'll take JB.

Stop asking for context with stats. Don't question the stats, just accept them and nod yes.

It was also pointed out by someone that JB throws for more yards per game for the fans of QB's throwing for a lot of yards.

@Calmack, explain your confused face. Please let me hear it lmao . We push the ball down the field by passing and running and once in the redzone we are automatic. I used the word WE which means our whole team.

My point was that sure if you are NOT throwing for a lot yards, yes, there is probably less chance for interceptions.  I'm fine with it, I just feel this stat is cherry picking for a narrative.  I'm fine with JB's style of play for now.

I would love it if JB threw for 300 a game, we all would of course.

Your use of the word pushing. Saying we slowly march down the field is far more accurate. There is nothing about our game that involves "pushing it down the field". Thats what KC does or what the Arians Colts did. Its basically subjective based on how you see it so it doesn't really matter....

That is fair enough, I just actually had no idea why the confused face so I thought I would ask lmao . It's all good. I like the fact after all these years we have a running game that can help us move the ball and win games. Different and neat to me.

Yeah I'll keep JB, thanks. I'd take Jimmy G as our backup though.

I wouldn't. That means we can't run the ball at times throughout the season. And I, and Big Q just want to RUN THE DAMN BALL.

That is a great point and I love our balance. Of course though if we had a QB throw for 300 that would be cool too. I am just about wins and losses in reality.

I know this is tongue in cheek...but Jimmy G plays on a top that runs more than any other team. The Colts run a lot as well...but not at that rate. If Jimmy G had JB's pass attempts, he would likely average ~260 yards/game vs JB's 227.

We run a lot too as you just posted. Those QB's are close but JB makes less mistakes. I will say this Belichick knows how to draft QBs.

I saw today SF is running like 60% of the game.

You have a point.

 

Fun fact:  Jacoby's 2 best throwing days came in games where the run was bottled up.

Get that ground game pounding the rock and able to take it to the house any given play. Add this defense getting better with age and starting to clamp down and Jacoby doing what he's capable of with a healthy receiving corps and I'll take those stats..all the way to the SB

I think we need a good lead blocker to take our run game to the next level.  Either a fullback or a guy that can moonlight as one

It could mean that the QB is being too careful with the ball on his throws. Meaning he doesn’t trust his arm enough to make deeper or tighter throws. 

 

If the QB is too careful throwing the ball it COULD be bad because it is making the offense somewhat one dimensional and less points are put on the board.

 

I believe the Colts are dealing with this now. The last three games the defenses have stacked the box and made the run game difficult. Teams are trying to make Brissett beat them.

 

KC got ran all over by our O-line even when they stacked the box.

 

Texans Played the run well but Brissett has a great game

 

DEN played the run well and Brissett made a ton of short careful throws (not including the first one on the last drive) The Colts almost got beat because the passing offense was no where to be found until that last drive.

 

I get frustrated because our offense isn’t as opened up as it could be.

 

Brissett HAS a better arm than Andrew had and he has some elite traits as a QB. However Brissett plays like he doesn’t trust himself to make certain throws and SEEMS to second guess himself at times. He plays like an ultimate game manager.

 

Now the Colts are winning so it’s all sunshine and rainbows but at some point these one score or less games are going to turn into losses.

    • I know this they have to give us a lot of picks to be able to do that I was pointing out how interesting this guy's prediction was
    • No prediction here, after the last couple of weeks, I'm just going to sit and try to enjoy watching a Colts win?   
    • I don't care for Hurts, but I like him a whole lot more than Fromm.....   It happens every single year....    Yup, and yup.   Fields is a true Soph. He won't be in the draft unless it's the XFL..   Perhaps Ballard like Love, and doesn't think he goes prior to our middle pick... Perhaps he's made a decision to take best available in the middle, and Love falls to our pick, and Ballard sees him as best available. You don't always have to go all in to get the guy you want early.   If Ballard wants to move up, he can package our first three picks (1R, 2R, 2R) and likely go up to #4 if he wants to. If Love is his guy, he likely doesn't need to go to #4.    Burrow looks incredibly good. Herbert has been talked about for 2 years now.  Love might have the highest ceiling of any QB this year, but also a lower floor than Burrow or Herbert. That's without even talking about Tua... Regardless, 4 pretty strong candidates.   Here's NFL.com's review of him recently. They are basically describing a Reich O...    I mean, going to rejoin Yost at TX Tech might improve his stock a little, but he's likely to still get a first round grade this year. I just don't see him staying in college. But who knows.
