Week 10 impressions: Hoyer the Destroyer (merge)

I doubt Brissett sits next week but if he does I want to see some of $wag. Although I know that wouldn't happen. At the very least I think he would've gotten some big gains on the ground. 

I think the club was overly cautious sitting Brissett as he could have played. They thought the Colts would win against the Dolphins by just showing up. Management probably was the most responsible for the loss.

I can’t believe some of you really thought Hoyer was good....we just lost to the damn Dolphins because of him. That game was a must win. We are probably out of the playoffs now.

Probably not quite that bad, but we've got to win the next few games to make sure we're more than a bubble squad

 

With Texans in drivers seat to win division, the loss to Raiders and Steelers really hurts; they have tiebreaker. :(

The thing is ... with Hoyer the swings are kind of the expectation. This is what Hoyer has been througout his career... when it's his day he will make some great throws and might win you some games,

 

Hoyer has lost his last 10 games in a row he has started-

but the other half of the cases he's quite capable of singlehandedly losing you games. I even said in the pre-game thread that the high variance nature of both him and Fitzpatrick make the chance that we will have a close game much higher than one would expect from a home game vs 1-7 team. 

 

I'm not sure how different Kelly would be to be fair. To me it's quite clear that Brissett is our best chance to win games right now. Hopefully he's healthy next week. 

 

I'm at a loss. But JB7 seems to be able to hold the team together.  We now have 10 games in a row that finished < than a TD difference.

Your right about  Berssitt is not a starting QB, Hoyer is really not a starting QB, The Colt's need to put Chad Kelly in next week, all pre-season, His stats where the best of all the Quarterback who played in the preseason and that includes Bressitt. If the Colt's put Kelly in next week we got a lot better chance of winning the game, now if Hoyer is going to start and play next week, we will see the same thing again, Hoyer playing for the other Team and that's really going to be sad to watch.

Easy to overreact to a game like this when Hoyer played well last week, but it is what it is.  Hoyer is a literally average backup QB, if you put those guys on the field, they can do this to you in any single game.

 

Entirely possible that Kelly does the same thing to us, but at least if you gamble on raw talent you have a chance to be pleasant surprised.  Brissett is one thing, Hoyer should not be the reason Kelly isn't starting, and again I find myself chafing at the archconservatism of the Colts' braintrust.

Well???? He played well????

I went into this game thinking my 9 hole, PAR 3 round of golf was the worst sports performance I would see today....and then Hoyer and Vinny asked me to hold their beers....:lol:

If Belichick didn’t take the chance on Brady over Bledsoe, there’s no Brady. If Harbaugh didn’t take chance on Kaepernick over Alex Smith and Andy Reid cutting toes with Alex Smith for Mahomes, I think you get the point. 

 

A chance has to be taken to reap any rewards or know what you have.

Disgusting performance. Then again, it is Hoyer so what did we expect? He's done this his whole career. 

And the Colts sucked him up like a raw oyster

Only three positives from today:

 

1.  Leonard played like a monster.

 

2.  Houston had another sack and has quietly had a really nice season.

 

3.  The line got back to playing well in the second half.

 

everything else from Hoyer on down was awful.

Watching Hoyer today reminded me of watching Painter. I am not even joking. Everytime we had the ball and he threw a pass I covered my eyes. At least with JB I know we can win games lmao

While Hoyer is simply a poor QB, Riech did a lot to help him go into "superbad" mode today.

Not really, Reich didn't throw 3 INT's. Just admit without Brissett we stunk. It so obvious but you will not give Brissett any credit at all. Hoyer isn't near the QB Brissett is regardless of what stats you put out there.

Reich didn’t put hoyer in a position to succeed. It’s one thing to throw it if you have all your WR. It’s really dumb to let him throw it 40 times with everyone hurt.

You make everything about Brissett. This about Hoyer. I was plenty critical of the Hoyer signing when others were saying what a great move it was. 

 

That aside, tell me why Frank gives Hoyer an aggressive game plan vs giving JB very conservative game plans. Honest question???

 

And all that when playing the worst team in the league. If you don't see Reich as a massive fail today, you're simply happier to take today as "proof" how good JB is. And that is plain silly.

I give part of the blame to Frank today for the loss but if JB plays we would've won plain and simple. That is my point. The team was rolling with JB and played a certain way, funny how he is out and we lose 2 in a row.

Cut him if it is not to big of a cap hit and let Kelly be the back-up.  JB will be back next week and Kelly can play no worst that Hoyer did today.  At least Kelly can run the ball if he get is trouble.

Not having three of their top four WRs are killing them too.  The Colts are still winless since TY was drafted and he doesn’t play.

Yup. TY and Parris are our two speed guys. All we have are possession guys left. Hines is the only speed left, and he's not a deep guy (or at least, not with the Colts).

 

Cain would have helped in the deep game today. Say what you want about him, but he's know as deep threat guy, not a possession guy. And you waive him to bring up someone with zero game experience in the first game you decide to a deep ball team.... SMH...

Maybe people will shut up now about JB. Like you said this team had a identity. It was pure chaos without him tonight.

I agree they probably win with Jacoby but I also think they probably win if a couple of their WRs, namely TY was healthy.  Even if they get Jacoby back I don’t see them beating the Jags or Texans without getting some of their WRs back.

Maybe they should of simplified the game plan instead of having hoyer throw 40 times with no WR. This almost entirely goes on Reich.

Ballard should cut Hoyer now and save a quite a few million and give the backup job to Kelly.  JB is most likely back this week and Kelly can get the backup reps instead of Hoyer.

I’ll agree it wasn’t franks best play calling day but you can’t simplify the play calling too much if on your 9 carries in the first half you only get 27 yards and only three plays that got beyond five yards.  Heck 15 of them came on one run take that out it’s 8 carries for 12 yards.  That’s also not counting the Hoyer 4th down play, his sack or the kneel down to end the half.

 

The bottom line was they couldn’t keep running ball in the first half because they couldn’t get drives going with it.  

 

Now in the second half they did which is why they ran for 80 yards in the second half and they ran the ball a lot more and stuck with it and had much better balance in the second half until they were forced to go to the air late.  

 

I will also say if people complain about what Jacoby does or doesn’t see today showed why I’d rather have Jacoby being over cautious than Hoyer constantly trying to force it into double coverage.

Short and not so sweet...

If I ever see Hoyer take a snap for the Colts again it will be far too soon!

Hoyer was a terrible idea in the first place. How the # did Ballard see anything in firstly Philip walker then Brian hoyer? 
 

When we first brought this guy in people were like he is a great mentor, locker room guy and will help JB... lol I’m interested in players who can play the game - and this guy can’t.

    • You don't think the 2019 Colts roster is better than the 2017 roster?   In 2017 the O-line was lousy.   Now it is top 3 in the league.  Brissett played very similar in 2017.   The better O-line cut his sacks in half.     In his 4 years in the league his accuracy % is very consistent.  Around 60%.    
    • I think improving just iDL, or even both iDL and DE would make the back end look much much better. I look at things heavily based on chosen scheme. Our current scheme simply won't work without an improved pass rush. And our pass rush ranked pretty darn low. I think improvements in that are make the whole machine hum along better, and we'd see the DBs look more "ball hawking" instead of  "geesh, how long to I have to cover this guy". While I've never been a big fan of Geathers, I think Desir if perhaps the bigger need to upgrade as far as DBs are concerned. But again, perhaps they both look a lot better if we had a decent pass rush. I really love using Oke at both SAM, and on passing downs at MIKE. It's great bang for the buck. Since we use SAM a third or less % of the time, it's great to get more value out of Oke by getting passing down snaps from him at MIKE. I'm not a fan of Walker in passing downs, but even less of a fan of Oke in running downs at MIKE. I am a big fan of Walker in running downs though. Walker won't compel a big dollar contract only being a 2 down LB, so not sure you have to worry about a big extension.    On his grade, keep in mind that Walkers grade suffered when he moved to WILL when Leonard was out for 3 games, and he played 100ish% of snaps and had to defend the pass. Honestly I wish they would have left Walker at MIKE and let fill in for Leonard at WILL. IIRC, Walker is only making 2.6M now, which is less than Oke and Speed. He's not a FA until 21, so we've got time. While he's likely not a pressing need for the FO, I wouldn't be shocked to see him sign something in the 5-6M range sooner than later, which would be at the bottom of the top 20. 8-9 would put him in the 12-13 range, and honestly I don't see that given he's a 2 down guy.
    • I would think with the talent they have they would want more of a veteran. They are in a win now mode. A rookie sets them back. They are not on a rebuilding mode. They have more talent then the colts I think. Go after a tackle in the first and get a veteran. They are getting ready to play in the new stadium so maybe they want a young exciting QB. So much can change after FA starts. If they get Brady they have to take a tackle at 6 though.
    • I was into the AAF quite a bit.  The style was NFL-like.   Not sure I'm up for another disappointment.  The last time for the XFL was so poor, it makes me question this time.   Will they be able to leave the WWF out of it this time?    
    • I have to admit, I really don't feel anything.  Probably because I haven't watched the NBA for a long time.    Does the grieving outpour stem from him being a Laker?   I get that he is probably a top 5 all time NBA player.     Sad tragedy for sure.
