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

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.

    • Luck and Manning had considerably more bank (contract and endorsements), and considerably more post NFL options. It's just not comparable to AC's financial situation. Sure he could live comfortably on what he has, but I think you're undervaluing what would more than double his net worth and take him to a new level from a financial security perspective. 
    • Hes been the same since college.  His draft preview stated so.  Hes the common denominator.  
    • Williams was pretty good when given the opportunity.  Wouldn't doubt if another team gets him and gives him more playing time.  
    • Tua's health is still the X factor right now.  Here is a scouting report (by a real respected scout) overview of 5 QB's practice days at the Senior Bowl recently.  Sorry for length:   South team QB's   Tuesday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon Herbert looked phenomenal on Tuesday displaying all the physical tools and leadership skills necessary for the next level. He was right on the money with many of his throws and his pass placement was off the charts. He made plays in and out of the pocket, displayed a next level arm and great athleticism. His incomplete passes were more about drops by receivers rather than missed throws on his part. And when his receivers dropped a pass Herbert was there to take charge. Terrific day by the Oregon quarterback.   Wednesday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon It was another effective day for Herbert, though one could make the argument he was slightly better yesterday. He was right on the money with his throws and showed terrific pass placement. I don’t think Herbert had as many dynamic throws today, but he also had fewer errant passes and misses. Again, he displayed a good degree of leadership throughout the entire session.   Thursday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon Thursday was another terrific practice for Herbert. While he probably had more misses Thursday than any of the previous two days, he consistently showed the ability to drop the ball in the bucket and place passes where only his target could come away with the reception.   Tuesday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Hurts had his struggles today, especially early on. He was often late delivering passes and receivers were waiting for the ball to arrive. Several of his attempts had pass catchers leaving their feet to grab the pass from midair. I got the idea watching Hurts, he is much more comfortable playing in Oklahoma’s wide open system and it’s going to take some adjustment to get accustomed to an NFL type of scheme.   Wednesday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma If Hurts struggled on Tuesday, he was just outright bad on Wednesday. Excluding one terrific pass he placed in the hands of Stephen Sullivan down the left sideline, Hurts was off the mark all day. He missed wide open receivers throwing against air and put pass catchers in perilous positions when they were covered.   Thursday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Thursday was a slightly better day for Hurts, and it was quite possibly his best practice of the week. He showed better accuracy and throws a catchable ball, but he still forced too many passes and missed a number of open receivers.   North team QB's Tuesday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Love did not have quite the day of Justin Herbert but he wasn’t far behind. He made several magnificent passes throughout the day and drew a lot of praise from the scouts around me. He has a super quick, super-efficient release, a live arm and showed some beautiful pass placement. There were a couple of passes that got away from him and he was not quite as effective on the move compared to Herbert, but it was an “A” day for Love.   Wednesday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Love had another terrific day on Wednesday. While one could argue he was more inconsistent than Day 1, most of his throws were on the mark and delivered with great speed, and most of the time he made really good decisions   Thursday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Thursday was another solid day for Love, although one could argue he was not as effective as he was the prior two practices. He displayed a big-league arm and got the ball through tight windows, but he also made some questionable throws that included one bad interception.   Tuesday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State Gordon displayed a lot of next level physical skills and possesses an NFL arm. He also needs a lot of work on his game. While he showed the ability to fire the ball into targets, his pass placement and accuracy was all over the place. When Gordon needed to drop a ball into the tight window, he was unable.   Wednesday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State While Gordon has his moments on Wednesday, for the most part he showed a lot of inconsistency. He did a better job placing throws and dropping them into targets’ hands today, but all too often he was off the mark and had receivers leaving their feet or adjusting backwards to grab the ball from the air.   Thursday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State Gordon was better Thursday than he was the prior two practices. He showed better accuracy and decision-making. He was not as hesitant as he was during Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s sessions. Tuesday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan Patterson showed much of the same today that we he showed the past two years- a lot of inconsistency. He made a few nice throws but for the most part was late delivering the ball and was all over the place with his throws.   Wednesday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan It was not a good day for Patterson, as his practice bordered on terrible. He made one terrific pass downfield, which was promptly dropped by Antonio Gandy-Golden, but just about every other throw all day was wide of the mark. Too many times his receivers had almost no chance to catch the ball as Patterson was missing so badly.   Thursday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan Thursday was hands down Patterson’s best practice of the week. He was much more accurate and decisive, and while he had a few misses, he was mostly on the mark with his throws all day.
    • Mayok had a interview and like ballard stressed DT. When you already have a QB as good as Carr It would be dumb to pass on a guy like Kinlaw.
