Reichs quote on Jacoby and his leadership

Recommended Posts

Reich just said this about Jacoby.  He also mentioned today how they have been working with him by taking away the first read and making him go through his progressions. I really hope he can put it all together because he has the intangibles. The colts need him to be the guy if they don’t want to take a step back.

That doesn’t mean he sucks. But it does show that they see he needs to improve in that area.

So when some of us fans mention JB has issues going through his progressions we are JB haters and discredit all the good he does but when Reich mentions it, it's jus an area he needs to improve upon.

There are a lot of things to like about JB and his leadership skills is one of them.  I have mentioned in other threads, there are very few QBs who, I beleive, could have be thrust into the situation he was in and helped keep the team on a steady line and playing competitive football.

 

I will also say, it takes more than being a leader to be a great QB.  General Custard was a great leader, what he was not good at was reading a situation (kind of like he didn't go through all his progressions.)

 

yes, I did it. I tied Custard's lack of anticipating a setup to JB having trouble going through his progressions.  take that all my history teaches who said I didn't pay attention.

Just for the record  I have never said that he doesn’t need to improve. I have also never hated on anyone saying it. My issue has always been with the ones who say he can’t improve or won’t improve.  I have patience.

So noted for the record.  Didn't you also say that you would laugh if the Colts went a different direction at QB and ended up in QB purgatory for years?

 

I'm just asking for the record. :)

No that is not what I meant. I would laugh at the people who wanted him gone.

I posted this to show that they realize weaknesses and are trying to improve.

The reason the JB haters are haters is not because they criticize him.  It's because they "only" criticize him and the compliments are "always" backhanded.  That's what constitutes a hater.  Reich pointed out good as well as bad.  That's called being objective.


There’s plenty of objective assessment, just as there’s plenty of people who refuse to engage with the discussion, instead chucking out ad hominems and men of straw.

The lack of being able to read progressions is most of the reason I don't think he will be the Colts QB of the future.  

 

I don't think it's likely that he will improve much on this as long as he's been in the league with as much experience as he has.  

 

Hope I'm wrong because it causes major problems in all aspects of offense.

dude, hes basically in year 2. and not even fully in year two.  Even the now highly touted great ones, Manning, Brady, Brees, etc took more than 1.5 years of actual playing time to develop into what would make them legends.  and it could be argued that Manning's break out wasn't until year 4.

here is the thing though, going through progressions is not something that takes years to do.  And all the QBs you mentioned and many others were very good at going through their progressions coming out of college.  I believe it's one of those things that cannot be learned more than incremental improvement, a QB either is good at it or they are not.  A QB may become better at it in their range but someone who is bad at it will not become good, someone who is good at it will not be great at it.  It's one of the major reasons why I don't think QBs like Watson or Winston are elite QBs.  It's also a big reason why Wilson has become an elite QB despite being "too small" to be an NFL QB.

 

Additionally, when it comes to something as fundamental for a QB as going through his progressions, you cannot just limit it to his starts.  he's been in the league for 4 years now.  Even has a backup/scout team QB he has to be able to go through his reads.  It is the same as saying that a LB only has 23 starts of course he's not going to be good at tackling yet.

Custard - Custard is a variety of culinary preparations based on milk or cream cooked with egg yolk to thicken it, and sometimes also flour, corn starch, or gelatin.

 

Custer - George Armstrong Custer was a United States Army officer and cavalry commander in the American Civil War and the American Indian Wars.

Reich was not asked about him. He always talks about how feels practice has gone for the week. He talked about this and how he thought the WR handled it well. 

 

Why would he just make something up they had been working on in practice. I would hope they are alway looking at ways to improve a player.

 

Nobody said it was going to take him years. It’s about game experience. Brady was called the check down king his first three years before he became elite.

They still call him that.  But the difference is Brady checks down after he had gone through his progressions.

And Custer did, in fact, have a pretty good grasp of situational awareness and was one of the finest Union cavalry commanders in the Civil war.  His problem at Wounded Knee was that he got bad intel from his scouts.  Bad information always leads to bad plans and bad results.

You do admit he needs to improve, but you also blame other facets of our O a lot as an excuse for JB's issues. Stats are your friends.

Yes, Brady improved a lot over time, but he also led the league in TDs in his 2nd year....

This can not be stressed enough. Reading Ds and going through progressions takes both vision and processing. Both are more "natural" than "learned" gifts. While they can be learned, it's much harder, and may even be capped for many. Both issues were present in college, and it's still a big struggle.

    • Yup. We have good depth at G, but T in general is horrible. I wouldn't say we need to be truly "aggressive" if AC comes back, but we do need to address by the 4th or 5th round. Good depth can be found in the middle rounds as far as AV is concerned. If you look over the past 20ish years, AV is pretty darn good rounds 1-5, and is actually highest in the 2nd round. R4 historically has a tad more AV than 1st. If AC leaves though, need to be very aggressive (FA or draft)
    • I think Luck's situation is very unique. Born to wealth, lived abroad, will inherit a ton, has career options at his fingertips, etc.. He and his future grand-kids are already set for life. Other QBs and other players with worse injury history have remained passionate. Again, he's just a different type of guy/player, and there's nothing wrong with it.    As far as SBs are concerned, sure it's nice to play for one, but 50M is the key ingredient. 
    • I'm not sure why everyone is so obsessed with us taking a QB and trying to figure out how we would get one. I mean I know it's fun in a way to sleuth and conspire, however I'm not sure the Colts are going to take a QB at all. I'm also not sure they are going to grab one in FA either. I mean I could certainly be wrong, however why the need to grab one right now? This team is not ready to compete for a SB right now at all. They WERE ready with Luck as he was the "X" factor, but without Luck, we are not fully ready. So drafting a QB might give the fan base hope and excitement about a future players potential, but does it get us to win right now? I don't think so, as we DO need WR's and interior and exterior rush guys too, as well as O-line if Anthony retires but most assuredly to better ourselves over Glowinski.   What would you rather have? A QB right now that most likely will take time to develop, meaning we won't win many games in 2020, or a chance at maybe a more polished QB like Lawrence in 2021 if the Colts don't win too many games in 2020 with what they have. The alternative is that in 2020 the Colts do get better either with Jacoby or Chad, win games, and we would have pieces we drafted in areas of WR and DT and O-line that actually put us closer to complete team and we all get surprised.    Either way, I'm a Colts fan. I'm just not sold on taking a QB at all this year via draft and only a guy like Mariota if it's FA.    Go Colts!!
    • I looked up what the Chiefs had to pay Buffalo to trade up and grab Mahomes.  The Chiefs traded up from pick 27 in the first round to get pick 10.  They gave up pick 27 and their 3rd round pick that year and also their first round pick the next year.  If that is the price to move up 17 slots, the Colts shouldn't have to mortgage the future to move up in this year's first round. Say Carolina is your trade partner; that would mean the Colts would trade up from 13 to 7. The trade value chart, for what that is worth, says they would be slightly over paying if they traded the 13th and 44th pick for the 7th. I'd do that in a heartbeat if I believed we were looking at our future franchise QB.
