Colts passing game is a joke

The fact he was in more of air it out offense I think is probably the biggest reason. Maybe he would be good down in Tampa where the offense fits him better. I just want  to see more risks like that and not be so scared.  He clearly can anticipate  and throw guys open.

I disagree with passion on the last bit. IMO this has been his biggest weakness for a while. You can find a throw here and there where it seems like he's anticipating, but those are few and far between.

Yeah...I’m very much with you in passionately disagreeing with that take.

The answer is... not much has changed. Jacoby is largely the same QB with some variance in his downfield success(which is understandable - those are lower probability shots on small sample) + being in Chud's Air Coryell system before and in Reich's system now. 

I think the Chud to Reich change in scheme is huge.

 

1. On top of the scheme but still central, in Chud's O, JB was asked to simply throw more to a "spot" (deep), while in Reich's he's asked to read, process, and throw. JB was good just putting the ball up and letting the WR or TE do the work. 

2. Chud's O made it much easier to read the D, and a lot easier to determine if it was man or zone based on all the pre-snap motion by the WRs/TEs. 

3. Chud's O also stretched the entire field, so WRs/TEs were often more "open", and didn't require as much visual processing to find the mismatch.

Which it might be he is just in the wrong system but could have a ton of success in a system that plays to his strengths.

A lot of us have said that from the beginning, that JB isn’t a great fit for Reich’s system, at least theoretically.

I don't think the system is the problem, I do think however Reich is running it too much. I love running it but he is the king of running lately lmao

Let me be specific. I see a few different types of QB.

1) A QB who uses running as a huge part of their game (Jackson/Newton type)

2) A QB who who uses mobility as a huge part of their passing game (Mahomes/Wilson)

3) A QB who is primarily a pocket guy who is not afraid to run (Luck)

4) A QB who is primarily a pocket guy and tries not to run (Brady/Stafford/Flacco)

 

2018 rushes

Jackson - 147 (16 games)

Newton - 101 (14)

Wilson - 67 (16)

Mahomes - 60 (16)

Luck - 46 (16)

Brady - 23 (16)

 

When an injury happens to type 1 or 2 and the player is hobbled, their game and O scheme built around them is typically severely limited. Let's just say a sprained ankle. A Mahomes or Jackson won't be half of what they typically are. A hobbled type 3 or 4 will be a lot less limited because the offense built around them doesn't have the run reliance.

 

In terms injury likeliness. Guys like Newton and Jackson are basically passers and running backs. Guy like Mahomes and Wilson extend plays and use mobility but don't act or run like running backs. Guys like Luck see themselves as passers who "can" run when necessary. Guys like Brady don't want to run....  

 

In short, it's proven that RBs are more injury prone than QBs overall, so type 1 is logically at more risk. While type 2 may not be at more risk than type 3, their game will be more limited if they are hobbled. While there are no studies that take a granular look at different types of QBs, their injury likeliness, the impact of an injury, etc., It's not a huge leap of logic to think QBs that run as running backs put themselves at risk more often than those who don't, and so on as you move down the QB type list. 

 

What you fail to see is that pocket passers miss time too. You will dismiss a QB that runs, for fear of injury, while every QB has a good chance to get injured. Okay, carry on...

 

(Btw, most years Luck ran 60 times or more. Mahomes ran 60 times last year.)

The points eastatreet pointed out you can clearly see why he might be having issues with this system.

 

Maybe we can get the jags to give us foles in the off season. Lol. Minshew was doing a lot better then foles. Looks like it was a mistake to bench him.

I bet we could get him for less then a 2nd. They would never trade within the division. Especially to the team that had the coach he won the SB with. This should of happened in the spring and Luck should of retired after the season.

I'm not saying pocket passers don't miss time. I'm just saying the more running, the more potential for injury. And the more reliance on running, the less effective a QB will be if he's hobbled and the more limited the scheme will be.

Having great field vision is a must for a solid quarterback. Brissett has not mastered this skill and that is his biggest downfall

My hope not many teams can take that cap hit and we do have the space

I know we're all living in the now, seeing what we believe to be an average QB regressing week to week.

 

But it is possible that Reich and company know what their doing and are breaking Jacoby's game down so the can build it back up into something that fits this scheme.  

 

That said Jacoby might just be out over his skis on this offense.  Truth is we wont know til they make a move or dont.

 

Ballard and Reich didnt come here to make this a mediocre club.  If Jacobys not the guy they'll let us know sooner rather than later I think.

 

I've been a big supporter of Brissett and I'd like to believe we'll see some improvement and maybe a little more risk now that the playoffs are unlikely.  Imo he needs a 4 int game to get over some of the hesitation/fear he seems to be gripped by.  A 4 td 0 int game would also be acceptable.......

 

Come out throwing one more time this year, and let him sink or swim.  Either way it'll be good for him.

This is a great draft for QB’s. The best draft since 1983 imo. Justin Herbert, Joe Burrow, and Jake Fromm are franchise caliber QB’s. We have to get one of those three for this franchise to move in the right direction.

He will probably come out and have a career game against the titans. Lol. That always happens when you think things are so bad. I think it was Dungy that said your never as bad as your last game or as good as your last game. I bet this is all a over reaction to last week. After Sunday we will be sayin dang he was good lol. He did have 3 TD against the titans last time I believe.

Had plenty against Houston last time too.  I just don't know what to expect anymore.  Except: O line good, reich is better than hes looked this month, and defense not too shabby.

If titans play the same defense they did the first time I will be curious if he learned from it and has a easier time. Titans have got Simmons in the lineup now and he is killing people. They also have Lewan back. Neither of them played the first matchup. 

 

This team is very strange and inconsistent. We can lose to anyone but beat almost anyone. The saints did not look good on defense today. That will also be a interesting game to watch. Their oline is struggling also.

 

Hopefully we get DF and Campbell back Sunday and TY is back to his usual self.

Chloe, I give you credit for being an eternal optimist but if things don't go well you have the most excuses of anyone I know. I have to give you a gold star for being so optimistic. Can not take that away from you and am proud of you but won't hire you as my bookie.:cheer2:

You never know. This always happens when you think things are so bad. Somehow they will prove us wrong. 

 

Thought this was funny. Brady better be thankful for his defense.

Here is a great one for some that thinks stats are everything,

 

College career averages:

QB A = 2,794 yards per year, 20 TD's, 8 INT's, here is the kicker 8.4 Y/A

 

QB B = 2,800 yards per year, 22 TD's, 8 INT's, 8.1 Y/A, (same as above basically overall)

 

Can you name the 2 QB's who were identical coming out of college statistically?

Any arm chair GM can see JB is not the answer, stop pretending.  He lacks the confidence it takes to play the position and more importantly doesn’t have the anticipation factor to throw a receiver open.

Trent Dilfer wasn't the answer in 2000, Brad Johnson wasn't in 2002, Foles wasn't 2017. Everyone said Philly was toast when Wentz went out in 2017 and he beat Tom Brady in a shootout lmao . Is Jordan Love the answer? Who knows, I don't.

Darn, so I don't win the prize? Seriously 2006, this whole conversation has got soo out of hand. We have guys that think JB is the guy and we have some who are critiquing his performance and all of the sudden we have a divided fan base. Kind of remind you of the state of our country as divided as it is now? We all should have a pow wow at the corner bar and I think we would all get along and have a great time. Since I may be in the minority it's probably not a good idea so HAPPY TURKEY DAY!!

I hear ya, I am not sold on JB being the answer, he may not be as he looked bad on Thursday. That was his chance to shut his critics up and he played like Mike Pagel I admit lmao . I just to try to make points that things could be worse. I have seen far worse than JB in my time and so have you my friend.

    • I would not be in favor of signing him to The Colts. This has nothing to do with his kneeling or social justice work; I just don't think he's the right kind of QB for our scheme.  Personally I think he was a decent QB in the right system, but he doesn't seem to me to be the type of QB that can thrive in any system, and more specifically ours. Add to this the fact that he has not played for several years and it's a hard pass for me. I, unlike others, wish him no ill will, and hope he is successful & happy in life. However I think our QB room is better without him.
    • My thought is that enough time had passed - prior to the George Floyd incident - that he would have been brought onboard if he actually had better talent than those already in the league and those who would come cheaper.  That's my .02 without making this too political.  There have been other talents in the league with marks against them that have been added to rosters because their talent was worth the bad press.  I would suspect that having the best talent on the roster is the highest priority to some owners - regardless getting some bad views from the press or the fans.   I like our QB room right now.  No need to add Kaep.
    • This past week the nation has been engulfed with the tragic death of George Floyd. Sportscaster has reminded us all about the stand that Colin Kaepernick did in kneeling as a reminder that Black Lives Matter. He has been "black listed" by all the NFL owners ever since. The sportscasters are placing this in front of all sportscasters, players and citizens. As a Colt fan, I think Colin Kaepernick would be a solid 3rd QB. What do you think?
    • I’d love to have Clowney.... and I’m a big believer in the high character players the Colts have targeted recently. But with the uncertainty over what the salary cap will look like next year, and the multiple free agents the Colts need to sign, it makes sense to be cautious. If they could get him on a one year affordable deal, heck yeah. But I suspect Clowney will hold out for a better deal than that....which is why Clowney and the Colts are not the best fit. Gonna have to roll with J. Houston and the kids. 
    • My answer for this question for 2017, 2018, and 2019 has been laraven Clark but I think this year I’m going to have to say this year it’s going to be hooker. He hasn’t really made the impact that a lot of us hoped he would, but in his final year of his contract, hes going to play like a top 5 safety so he can get those high contract offers in free agency.
