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

Not throwing  many ints is a good  thing

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.

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.

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

 

(This is how certain talking heads convince people the Cowboys are good every year)

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.  

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.

Funny, we all want that. I was just pointing out that people criticizing JB says he doesn't throw for a lot of yards but yet those same people would take Garoppollo over JB. 

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.

@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. 

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.

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

how could it be a bad thing?

 

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.

    • My favorite Colt players is the one who just made a great play. 
    • That’s right, I forgot what that situation was. Its been a long day.

    • Discussing the best Left Tackles in Indy history made me wonder what the best (and worst) Offensive Lines were in Indy history.  I pulled simple stats for each year:  NFL Rush Rank, Yards per Attempt, and Sacks.  Here are my top 4 Offensive Lines and bottom 4 Offensive Lines   BEST OL - 2004 - 15th in Rushing, 4.3 Y/A, 14 Sacks - Tarik Glenn (pro bowl), Ryan Lilja, Jeff Saturday, Rick DeMulling, Ryan Diem 2ND BEST - 1987 - 6th in Rushing, 4.3 Y/A, 24 Sacks - Chris Hinton (pro bowl), Ben Utt, Ray Donaldson (pro bowl), Ron Solt (pro bowl), Kevin Call (rookie) 3RD BEST - 1985 - 5th in Rushing, 5.0 Y/A, 35 Sacks - Chris Hinton (pro bowl), Ben Utt, Ray Donaldson, Ron Solt, Karl Baldischweiler 4TH BEST - 2019 - 7th in Rushing, 4.5 Y/A, 32 Sacks - Anthony Castonzo, Quenton Nelson (pro bowl), Ryan Kelly (pro bowl), Mark Glowinski, Braden Smith   WORST OL - 1991 - 28th in Rushing, 3.3 Y/A, 57 Sacks - Zefross Moss, Randy Dixon, Brian Baldinger, Chris Conlin, Kevin Call (Ray Donaldson and Ron Solt were injured) 2ND WORST - 1992 - 28th in Rushing, 2.9 Y/A, 44 Sacks - Zefross Moss, Randy Dixon, Ray Donaldson, Ron Solt, Kevin Call (amazing that 3 of these were on 2nd best OL as well) 3RD WORST - 1997 - 17th in Rushing, 3.8 Y/A, 62 Sacks - Tarik Glenn (rookie), Eugene Chung, Jay Leeuwenberg, Tony Mandarich, Jason Matthews 4TH WORST - 2017 - 22nd in Rushing, 3.7 Y/A, 56 Sacks - Anthony Castonzo, Joe Haeg, Anthony Fabiano, Mark Glowinski, Denzelle Good (Jack Mewhort and Ryan Kelly were injured)   Interesting that two of our worst OL's were situations where multiple starters were injured.  And we have a situation where one of the best and one of the worst both have 3 players in common.  Our best performing OL only had one pro bowler.  Shows just how important teamwork and cooperation is for an OL to perform well.
    • Lawson is one of those guys that isn't getting the credit he deserves because his recorded stats that people often see aren't nearly as impressive as his overall impact.   He generates pass rush and disrupts plays.   In 2020 he ranked:   - 1st in QB knockdowns (27....one more than TJ Watt and 7 more than third place Chris Jones) - 4th in QB Pressures (defined as knockdowns + sacks+ hurries)  (44 total.....TJ Watt was first with 61 but second was a tie between Joey Bosa and Aaron Donald with 45)   He also was charted with only 2 missed tackles on the year and his 5.3% missed tackle percentage would have finished 7th among the top 50 players in terms of QB pressures behind only:   Leonard Williams Aaron Donald Myles Garrett DeForest Buckner William Gholston Jonathan Allen   In summary, his sack total isn't impressive but he is a game changer who applies pressure and does so consistently. I would love to get him and add him to this front.
