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.

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.

    • 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.
