Brett Mock article on Pitt game

Recommended Posts

I agree with that 100%, i was skeptical before i opened it too.

 

The first penalty on Daruis was warranted, but the second one was petty AF

 

surprised we have not heard more about rogers' fumble, that was a killer

 

i have to agree on the Hoyer vs Brissett take too, been saying that all year really

Agree with the Hoyer Brissett take as well. I’m just not sold on the guy at all. I think that game ended up way closer then it would’ve been if Brissett was in.

It is "articles" like this that make it harder and harder to look at stampede blue for anything.

 

One on the content... all Brett did was rehash the game.  He offered commentary on a couple of points but even that was in the line of "I say so, so it is so."  The big one is AV's missed FG.  The laces did indeed affect the kick, anyone who has ever kicked a ball knows that kicking the laces is a recipe for disaster.  But even so, if he wants to make a point, explain the point don't just say, in effect, "anyone that thinks differently is wrong".

 

Then beyond that the writing is, I cannot even call it sophomoric because most high school sophomores write better than that.   His last sentence, for example, "I’m still learning squarely toward the idea that the long-term solution at quarterback for the Colts isn’t on the roster."

 

He is learning squarely on that?  My word, take two seconds and run it through Grammerly... even the free version would catch something that bad.

 

But with writing as bad as this piece displayed you have to wonder how much can you really trust his judgment on other things?  Posting something like that on a message board is one thing to present it as an "article" from a "Colts analyst" is laughable.

Yep. We probably win that game by double digits if JB didn’t get hurt.  We would of run it down their throats the second half. Their offense is so bad. They would not of come back from a 17-3 lead. It would of been lights out. We probably add a couple more scores in the second half. If anyone noticed the mental mistakes happened after JB left. Do those ST mistakes on kick offs happen if JB had not got injured. They lost their leader and the steady hand.

Yes the pick did happen but there was no excuse for letting it get ran back like it did.

I can concede that but nothing says we add more scores if JB is in the game. The whole lost their leader thing is hog wash also

we need a new kicker plain and simple. Theres a pretty good chance someone else would have made the few clutch kicks Vinny has made, plus the ones he has missed potentially allowing us to win the Charger and Steeler game. If Ballard would have went the other way with the kicker position we could potentially be 7-1

The name should give it away. “Brett Mock” is a AI bot we’ve created that takes posts on the forum and “writes” articles using the themes as it’s basis.

Because Brissett has never thrown a pick 6?

I think the whole "team made mistakes because JB was out" is a big stretch. As for the other stuff, yeah the pick 6 was bad, but really we have no idea whether or not Brissett would've gotten those 2 early TD's in the first place. Personally, I don't think we would've seen him make that Pascal TD pass, but again, no way to know for sure.

He might not of thrown the pascal pass but that doesn’t mean he would not of gotten it in the end zone. If that INT don’t happen we don’t need a lot of points to win that game.

Maybe a different kicker misses those long kicks against Denver Vinny made. Those were not easy kicks. So it goes both ways.

Wow! Stretch is correct. You are saying  Leonard doesn't make the dumb penalty if JB is still in the game? Rogers doesn't fumble the KO after the safety and AV makes the point after and the field goal? Unbelievable! JB was on the sidelines the entire game, could he not influence the from the sideline like other great leaders do?

Honestly seeing those passes Hoyer attempted was a breath of fresh air. INT sucked but there should be blame for letting him run it back 93 yards. I still don't see how JBs ultra conservative style would have allowed us to blow them out. Pitt has a very good defense. 

 

Also, I can't be the only one slightly irked by your constant use of "should of" instead of "should have or should've"???

Garbage comments on Brissett.  The man does what we need to win. His TDs to int ratio is excellent.  Colts could have been up huge if not for a 96 yard pick 6. Brissett shakes tackles and is not taking 5 sacks a game. 

 

Garbage.

That was a game where we should of been up 24-3 or 24-6 at halftime. There is no way that game should of been close. Despite JB going down and Kelly we moved on offense down the field with ease. There defense was not that good.

FYI  -

Hoyer was sacked 4 times vs the Steelers. 

Brissett was sacked 4 times vs the Broncos and he was sacked 1 time vs the Steelers in 1 quarter.

I agree that INT was huge, but look at the interception Brissett threw in the game against the Chiefs, it was remarkably close to the one Hoyer threw vs the Steelers. 

All in all Hoyer played better, than Jacoby did on average so far this season.

   Color me not impressed by most of the stuff on Stampede Blue. Their disregard of “filtering” the comments section make it even more unreadable.

    
    To disregard Rigo’s (and Rhodes’) part in the misses is just bad journalism.

 

     Plenty of mistakes by players that have NOTHING to do with Brissett being out.

     

     The good news is that all of these things are correctable.

If I recall it was 3-3 at the end of the 1st quarter. What your saying is we should have scored 21 point in the 2nd quarter and I am assuming you meant if JB would have been playing. I could be wrong but I don't think we scored 21 points in a half this year much less a quarter. Comments like this or we would have won the game by double digits if JB would have played the entire game unfortunately for JB doesn't do him any favors. We all want the Colts and JB to be successful but if you are wanting people to be more endeared to him exaggerations like the above doesn't help.

That was a pretty good article that brought out there efficiencies in that game that could have been corrected. People don't want to blame Vinatieri but he is responsible. The referees had a lot to do with it. We shouldn't have done stupid plays to cause us to not score

This is one of the worst, most uninformed, lacking evidence takes I’ve seen on these forums and that’s saying something.

Yeah I'm unsure how we would've won by double digits. We haven't done that a single time all year.

Perhaps @Chloe6124 is Mrs. Brissett, it's really the only explanation I can think of.

Tearing down the rest of the team to make JB look good is not a good thing. JB is much better than that and I'm sure he would vehemently disagree with you.

    • This is hard one. There are so many great players in this class... I will also assume you don't want us to include positional value in this.    Chase Young Jeffrey Okudah Joe Burrow Isaiah Simmons   The fifth one is extremely hard for me. I can argue for like... 5-6 players here... Derrick Brown, Lamb, Jeudy, Andrew Thomas, Jedric Wills... hell... even Tristan Wirfs needs to be in this discussion, even though he will probably be RT, he will be a great one IMO. I think I will go with Jerry Jeudy here as my last one.     
    • Very tough leaving Jeudy off this list.... but here are my Top 5....   Chase Young  Joe Burrow Derrick Brown  Jeff Okudah Isaiah Simmons
    • Would be awesome if the Colts had an amazing pass offense next year and Ebron can sit there and regret quitting because we all know he did. 
    • Could be Aaron Rodgers... Let's try an "A"
    • I mean... we were 7-9. I get that we have high expectations, but sometimes you see teams have to be bottom feeders for several years before they can start sniffing sustained success (see: the 49ers). If we imagine that we'd lost Luck at the start of the Ballard era I imagine we'd be looking at our team in a much different light. We probably would not have reached the playoffs any of those years.    Ballard inherited a bad, aging roster from Grigson and I felt right away this would be a 3 year project minimum before we were competitive. Well it only took two years and going into that year 3 we looked so promising. Then BAM Luck retires.    Luck's impact on this team is enough that it certainly changes our team's outlook when he's gone. A 3 year rebuild turns into what? 5? And honestly? That's where I think we are. We were a few missed kicks, late interceptions away from the post season this year already. With the cap we have, and the draft stock we carry, as long as we can improve our QB situation, the rest of our roster is primed to continue to grow for a couple more years before we really have to start worrying about cap.    So with that said... please don't retire Anthony Constonso!  My heart may not be able to handle the setback.
