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.

    • Things are always changing, and the game is always changing.  No question about it, it's a different game than it was 40 years ago, even 20 or 10 years ago.   No secret that Peyton is/was/always will be my favorite.    I still never really feel the excitement I felt when watching him master a game!  There's nothing quite like it.   Having said that,  I am very impressed with Mahomes, and quite certain I would feel that same excitement if he was on our team.      
    • As you know, the NFL doesn't allow teams to spend enough to fill every position with all pros, so we have to choose where to put them, and then use those positions to build around.   We have excessive talent at the LG spot.  It would be a waste to now build a team around a Mahomes type of QB who needs a LG to only hold a block for 2 seconds, within an O that does not feature power running.   We should build it like the Titans or 49ers.  Game manager Qbs who can come up big when it matters but not a QB who the team has to rely upon virtually every play to succeed.   If people want that type of O, then we should probably trade Nelson to get more capital to then get that QB. 
    • Yep, to add to this...   EVERY pick is a RISK. No pick is 100% certain hit! Pretty much every position in the draft has similar hit/bust rates in the middle of the 1st.    Whoever DT you get at 13 is about the same RISK as the QB you get because you like him.  Whoever CB you get at 13 is about the same RISK as the QB you get because you like him.   Whoever WR you get at 13 is about the same RISK as the QB you get because you like him.    Also... there is a RISK and a RISK. Saying Herbert is a risk and then saying Gordon is a risk doesn't mean the same thing.    I feel like people want to go the cheap route... like... you can just pick whoever in the 3d-4tg and he has the same chance of being good QB as the 1st rounders, because you don't have a Luck in the draft. This is NOT the case. The risk of the 1st rounders is MUCH lower than the risk of lower ranked QBs. There is a reason they are lower ranked. It's not because they are as good/safe of prospects as the early pick QBs.    We have too good of a team to be aiming at the best of the best generational types. We will not get top 3 pick(generational type QB) until we bottom out and I don't see this with this roster unless something horrible happens with injuries. We need to evaluate and target talented passers that are not complete QBs, but they have high level of talent that can be developed.
