QB Conundrum

Recommended Posts

We have seen what the offense looks like when there is zero threat of a deep ball with Hoyer under center. Every short and intermediate route is closely covered. This in turn makes it harder for the oline to block and we've seen the sack numbers spike as well as the running game dwindle.

 

If Hoyer is going to throw 2-3 interceptions a game then I'd say it's time to let Chad Kelly get under center.

 

He's got the arm to throw the deep ball, he's elusive in the pocket and can run pretty well. Could he throw 2-3 picks a game, sure, but at least he may give the offense some live without Brissett in there. He certainly couldn't do much worse in my opinion.

 

And Vinny's misses are killing us....that is a whole different topic there though.

Brissett doesn't exactly press the field either.  He will look long then immediately dump the ball off.  Most of his TDs are from short throws.  Until the Colts get a QB who can challenge the secondary, they will never be better than mediocre.

That's all I'm saying. A couple big runs by Kelly could've been the difference today.

But hey, it is what it is. I get why Hoyer was the guy they went with. Kelly probably hadn't gotten any run with the first team this week and they committed to Hoyer as the guy behind Brissett.

We're 7 and 2 if Brissett isn't injured. 

What happened to no excuses? Brissett isn't any better than Hoyer.

Brissett  is way better  than hoyer

Why, because he doesn't throw interceptions? He has to throw down field to have interceptions.

The way he telegraphs his throws, the only reason they don't all get picked off is do to his lack of touch throwing the fastball.

This is regarding a QB conudrum. When Jacoby gets back this team jas a better chance to win. Brisset is playing leaps and bounds better than Hoyer

His Ints to TDs

How can anybody question this after today's performance. No picks means less chances Miami scores leading to a easier victory for the Colts. It's common sense :spit:

They both are career back ups with no buisness starting anywhere. Colts got beat by Fittzpatrich, another career back up.

There is really nothing to say. If your team sucks on the field. They suck. Miami has traded away all of its better players. They are looking forward to the draft. Then The Colts come along and can't score, tackle or kick the football. If I was Leonard, I would kick everyone out of the locker room.

Thing is Hoyer showed some command last week. This week showed his old self. We may never know with Kelly. Hoyer tried too hard to be a hero and win a game at the end, instead of taking what was there, a la JB. Couldnt watch the game but the ints sounded bad, at least 2 of em. It will be interesting what happens this week, imo we should take some cap hits with a couple of cuts.

Hoyer was absolutely horrible today.  Staring down receivers, throwing into double coverage, passes were off and despite all of that all he had to do was look to his left on our last play and there was Pascal all alone and who most likely would have scored but would easily have had a 1st down to keep the drive alive.   Instead he was going with Ebron all the way.  Time to roll with Chad as our No.2.  I've seen enough of Hoyer.  He should be looking for another team come Tuesday.

Where are the JB haters at that said our offense was more explosive with Hoyer?  That Hoyer is a better QB that goes through his progressions quickly?  What happened?  0 points in the first half vs the dolphins.  3 interceptions.  Under 50% completions.

 

Yeah he's so much better…. I said in another thread last week, that even when JB's QBR is under 40 we can still win games because more often than not he won't cost you the game. And I said when Hoyer's QBR is below 40 we'll lose because he will be the cause of the loss.  The stats I listed in the first paragraph are proof that I was exactly right.

 

Y'all clowns even got Frank believing that junk.  Got Hoyer out there just throwing up junk to whomever.  Yeah "JB is only a game manager".  The best QB's & point guards are game mangers. Hoyer clearly has no clue.  Deep shots all game long.  No clue how to put a drive together and keep the chains moving... 

 

Y'all can keep your hollow stats.  I want wins.  And for the record JB is a way better QB than Hoyer or anybody else on the roster.  And oh yeah, Hoyer doesn't go through progressions better or quicker than JB.  He decides where he's going pre snap & just throws it.  Whether the receiver is blanketed or double covered does not matter.  But he's supposedly better than JB & the offense is way more explosive with him...  Hope y'all haters are happy.

I know I never said Hoyer is better than Brissett, Hoyer does not belong in the nfl, and he probably never did. He's won what,30% percent of his starts or some ridiculous number like that. come on, playing Hoyer is like asking to lose, no other way to put it.

Bottom-line the Colts will draft a quarterback next year

Who are they gonna draft? 

I assume the Colts won't win another game this year, but 5 pathetic wins still puts them far from drafting 1-3....

Colts will have to get lucky to draft a good qb with a late pick. 

And Ballard is in charge of picks... So let's hope he can draft Qbs better than wide receivers.

Throwing  interceptions  loses games. The pick 6 last week and he threw three today. One in the redzone on a drive we could have gotten  points. Brissett  isn't  the perfect  qb but he is leagues  better than hoyer who is on curtis painter  level.

The Saints were "supposed" to beat the Falcons by double digits today. They lost 26-9. So, by your logic, the Saints suck?

There is a difference. The falcons are loaded with stars on offense. They can win on any given Sunday. The dolphins have nothing.

    • I agree you go for the best you can get. I also think that if you get a good prospect, you try to improve the mentor of that young prospect. I'd much rather have a guy like Rivers mentoring someone like Herbert, Love, or Eason, than JB and/or Hoyer.
    • I wouldn't see it as determining it.  At 13, it's not that easy.  You might have to take a different path.  If you were top 5, you would probably just take Herbert and be done with it.  At 13, I don't know.  You might go free agent, plus draft pick, depending upon who you like.    We'll know in a few months.
    • Purely my opinion, but you trade down when either 1) your roster overall is bad and have a ton of areas in need of upgrade, and/or 2) the positions that are in need of upgrade, are very deep in the particular draft.    I think the last couple years we've had "overhaul" needs, and additional medium picks were more important than high picks. IMO, the roster is a lot more balanced/solid in terms of starters and depth.   At some point, you need to use the high picks for the big needs, and for game changing talent. We have a big need at QB, and need a game changing talent at iDL, so IMO, we won't trade back this year. If anything, we could trade up. I'm not really talking about trading our 1st to move up. I'm talking about packaging both our 2s to get back into the top 20 of the 1st. 
    • Why though? Like... why would you let a player that's on his way out determine who your NEXT QB should be? This is what I don't get? IMO if you are searching for your next QB, your decision should be ONLY about that new QB. It doesn't matter who he's going to sit behind... Jacoby or Rivers... you still want to draft the best possible QB in the draft, you still want to draft the QB you love the most. If they love Eason the most, then so be it...    I guess we'll see... 
    • If they sign Rivers, I'm guessing they would also draft a QB, just maybe not a QB everyone is talking about.    I have a feeling it might go like the following.  Khari Willis - Ballard said he had Willis graded as high as safeties that went earlier.  Ballard will draft Eason or someone, say something similar and everyone will be happy and fall in line.  "BDB had a similar grade on Herbert and Eason.  He knows what he's doing".
