New Jacoby Brissett poll  

156 members have voted

  1. 1. There are a lot more people in agreement with regards to the Colts QB than it seems. I don't think a poll has been worded correctly. Please pick the choice that best fits....

    • Jacoby is the franchise QB the Colts are looking for
      0
    • Jacoby could develop into the franchise QB the Colts are looking for if the team could just get healthy
      15
    • Jacoby is not the franchise QB the Colts are looking for, but will remain the starter until the right QB opportunity comes along
      70
    • Jacoby is not the franchise QB the Colts are looking for, and the Colts will either draft or find a FA QB before the start of next season
      31
    • Jacoby is not the franchise QB the Colts are looking for, and Chad Kelly will be the starter next season
      3
    • Jacoby is not the franchise QB the Colts are looking for, and the Colts should give Chad Kelly the shot for the rest of this season
      30
    • Jacoby is not the franchise QB the Colts are looking for, and the Colts should trade pick(s) for a QB right now
      7

I tried to word this in a way to give all fans a correct answer for themselves. 

 

 

 

Think you are missing some or should be 2 questions. 

 

My choice would be JB not the guy, let CK finish season, and draft a QB early, if CK shows anything let him and JB (and rookie if good enough) fight it out in camp to see who starts season and who is #2.

I believe JB is NOT the answer at QB but Ballard and Reich are going to continue to start him until they find a different answer.

 

My guess is JB starts next year even if another QB is drafted. I really want JB to play well. I like the guy but he sure is not getting it done this year. I don’t even care about the deep throws as much as his extremely poor accuracy on half of this throws.

Another option being, the Colts should cut JB and save 9M towards the CAP. 

 

Cut him?  Go to the Colts Reddit, they think the guy is great.  If only we can find a GM with that view we could get a haul.  After all, he is a franchise QB right...and they don't grow in trees...and our receivers suck or are hurt....and he has a leadership rating that I am told is really amazing!!!

 

Someone will want the dude, right?

Well, I thought realistic options. My bad. I could also have included Hoyer being subbed in as the starter...because someone might consider it an option, right?

Well, what I expected to see, has so far shown itself. The third option is what I expected the majority to pick. 

 

You can do both 3 & 6 and 3 & 4... some of the choices aren't mutually exclusive.

I think the most likely outcome is that we draft a QB in the first 2 rounds and that JB starts next year.

 

Although, I could see a scenario where Ballard’s favorite top tier QB options are drafted before our pick and he takes a project guy in the mid rounds. It’ll be interesting though. For some reason I don’t see Ballard trading up, but we’ll see.

Didn't have the perfect choice for me.

I think

1) JB is not our future

2) We should get some type of look at Kelly in the last two games, but not necessarily bench JB

3) If Kelly doesn't wow, cut him, if he wows, play him more and cut Hoyer.

4). Draft a QB regardless, unless by some crazy chance Kelly looks like Mahomes.

I have this bad feeling that Ballard won't draft a QB until the 3rd or 4th round.

 

I'm not saying there's no value there, but me being a Couch GM-* on the internet-that doesn't get paid to make football decision, I'd rather see them draft a QB higher than that. 

 

I also feel like they will roll with Brisket next year. Even if they get some good WR's and get TY back, I feel that's a mistake.

Before I voted, I did not look to see how the voting was going. I voted #3 and then looked to see. This forum amazes me sometimes in a good way, most of the votes were #3 :thmup:

I was torn between #2 and #3..... I voted #2.

 

What I DON'T want to see happen is a superior prospect at DT/Edge/OT/WR be passed over in the 1st round for a QB of lesser talent.

 

Barring Kelly coming in and outright beating Jacoby for the job.... he's likely to be starting next year.

 

IF Kelly.... or some drafted rookie like Jordan Love does beat him out fair and square then I'll wholeheartedly respect Ballard and Reich's decision..... and we'll have a solid backup in Brissett.

 

We've been spoiled at QB....and for good reason.... Manning and Luck were hits. But it still only netted us 1 Super Bowl over a 20 year span.

 

So we just need to be careful of the sugar-high and the expectations that come with a 1st round QB selection....that's all.

 

And I'd like us to make sure that a murderers row defense and plenty of weapons are in place for whoever the long-term QB is. :hat:

Anthony Gordon... QB Washington State.  Not the best overall QB in college this year but is, probably, the best pure passer in college football this year.  A bit on the skinny side but good height, excellent arm, can make all the NFL throws, superb mechanics and quick release.  Not a running QB but great movement in the pocket to extend plays, super smart, goes through his progressions well.

 

Numbers are inflated because of the style of offense Washington State runs but he has all the tools to do really well in the NFL.

My choice - "The Indianapolis Colts are screwed for the next 3-5 years, since Brissett is such a leader in the locker room."

 

Leadership is great, but it can also be a go-to for some as an excuse not to improve, or not to make the hard decision. 

 

All kinds of QBs exist in the NFL, and there are some very good ones that are not "leaders". 

 

And.. Honestly I think leadership is overrated in the NFL... If guys can't motivate themselves or be motivated by money, and can't be professional, they don't belong in the league. Hire a baby sitter if you need to for those that need it... 

 

And does leadership from a QB really matter to the D.... if it does, it's not that much. Hell, the D has regressed, so what's that say...

 

I doubt the big uglies on the OL need leadership from a QB.... does Mack or TY need leadership? If anything, maybe the WRs need an occasion speech when a game winning drive is needed.

Leadership is more than motivation.

 

JB, from all accounts is a great leader.  And, I disagree with your premise, that leadership from the QB really doesn't matter, I think a great QB needs to be a great leader as well.  But just because a QB is a great leader does not mean they are a great or even good QB.  Which I think is the case with JB... great guy, great leader, above average QB.

You can lead by performance without being a vocal leader. 

In my personal experience, there's all kinds of types of leadership. I was on HS football team that won 2 state titles. We had great leadership, and it wasn't from the QB.

Good for you.  In case you didn't know HS football and the team dynamic is vastly different than professional football and the team dynamic.

If a "Franchise QB" is someone most everyone agrees has top 10 NFL talent then i don't think those terms are met in your first 2 options.
 Jacoby does have a chance at being the Franchises very good QB. Perhaps someday, on an excellent team, good enough to play in a SB.
 But i wouldn't think Irsay, Ballard. and Reich can be very comfortable right now counting on that. They will surely take measures to hedge the position.  
 Kelly is on the 53 for a reason, so getting him some snaps this season makes a lot of sense. He is an investment and possibly the next man up one day.

Leading by performance is more about example.

What we've heard about JB is more "vocal", which is more motivational.

It's not that different. Team sports, corporate, etc.. I've been to all kinds of leadership conferences and workshops in my many years and have sent many managers and directors to them. I've listened to guys like Montana, Holtz, and a dozen or more other athletes and coaches along with all the others types. Sure there's some nuances, but most of it the same stuff. It's not mysterious stuff.

I'm sorry, but your comment vocal leader meaning motivational belies the rest of your comments about how much leadership stuff you've listened to or participated with.

 

As far as the rest, never claimed leadership was mysterious stuff, it's jut leadership is more than motivation, which was your original comment that QBs don't need to be leaders because all the grown men should be able to motivate themselves.

One option I don’t see happening but it makes sense in our predicament would be trading for Foles. He is basically in an osweiler situation right now and with our cap space we can get him (and back with Reich) and a 2nd or 3rd round pick for a late rounder, cut Hoyer and only take on 10 million extra salary for improved competition to Brissett and more draft capital. We could still hopefully draft a QB early but this would mean he definitely wouldn’t have to play a snap next year

I think he can be the franchise QB, but there will have to be a lot of improvement. He still looks like the best of the backup QBs. He can make that jump, it's just a question if he will. I would still draft someone else for healthy competition this off season. JB will get the edge and another year to show what hes got, but the his seat is still hot.

For the people voting for Chad Kelly - IMO there is nothing Chad Kelly can do in the remaining 2-3 games to convince the Colts he's the answer, simply because some of the biggest questions about him are not on the field and he cannot really alleviate those concerns on a football field. He can throw for 400 a game and 10TD/0INT by the end of the year and the Colts STILL should NOT feel comfortable giving him the spot and still should be looking elsewhere. This is what you get when you've spent your whole young adult life proving you cannot be trusted - you won't be trusted. I'm not sure Chad Kelly can do anything to make the Colts forego the search of QB this coming off-season if they are not sold on Jacoby. If anything his fight is for long-term roster spot as a QB2 or QB 3. If I were a GM, there is zero chance in hell I'm giving the keys to the car to Chad Kelly no matter what he does in a couple mostly meaningless games.

 LMAO
 He is on the 53 and that says all you need to know about your hysterics.
 The Answer would be that he got himself some game reps, and that would be good for any young, talented QB. OBVIOUSLY he must remain a model citizen up to and including FA and the draft to be part of the conversation.
 Some of you act like CB would pass on a QB that he wants that is sitting there on his board.
 Grow the _____ UP!

This is not about him being on a 53 man roster where he gets minimum salary and never sees the field. This is about you making key decisions for your roster and the face of your franchise with the biggest consideration being Chad Kelly. This is NOT happening. It would be INSANITY to heppen. To make a decision to... a/give up on Jacoby, b/give up on drafting a QB high, c/give up on pursuing a FA QB. There is close to ZERO chance they do that for Chad Kelly. 

 

Ballard won't pass on a QB he wants and is sitting on his board, this is very far from what I'm saying... in fact I expect him to get his QB in this coming draft. This was specifically about Chad Kelly and is informed by his extensive history of not being trustworthy both in college and in the NFL. I just don't see a scenario where Ballard gives Chad Kelly the QB1 spot and a huge pay raise.  

 

I don't mind giving him opportunity to play if we've given up on Jacoby already with the season being over(no chance for playoffs), but I do think it would be more about him securing a spot as a QB2/3 on the roster rather than about making him your QB1.

    • I get they're from one of the biggest TV markets in the country, but you knew that game was going to be a non-competitive snoozefest before it even started. I generally watch every Sunday Night game available, but I can tell you that both Sunday Night games that I largely tuned out of involved Packers-Bears contests (I wanna say there was a game in 2013 or 2014 where the Packers dropped 50+ on the Bears on Sunday Night and you could feel it was going to happen before the game even started).
    • I apologize for today guys. At least you whipped them the first time you played them in Tennessee but lost at home. I have a feeling the Titans are going to whip us when we see them just after Christmas.
    • Question for you and those who LOL with your post. How long have you been following football to ask a juvenile question? Is that even a question to ponder?   I'f I go through the list of South Florida talent, we would need to start a separate website, yes website never mind thread.   Coaches along: Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wanstedt, Pagano, just to name a few. Lets not start with players. On this current team, players not named Marlon Mack or TY Hilton, Anthony Walker, Jacoby Brissett, Al Qudin Muhammad, Xavier Rhodes (Norland High School is less than 20 mins away).   I actually take offense to your question. But to no avail, here is your answer: The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (10, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). As of the 2015 NFL season, UM has 45 players on NFL rosters, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves and not including current Free Agents, which is the most out of any NCAA program in the nation. As of the 2016 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 42 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks. The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 31 years in a row.
    • The game wasn't exactly a shock due to the missing players, but some of the themes were not what I expected, how about you guys?    Reason's the game was lost and what's next:  --------------------------------- 1. Rock Ya Sin.  I think Rock is starting to look more like a Draft miss than hit.  They often refer to his wrestling career, and that is never good because it usually comes after a Defensive Hold or Interference.  He really put us in a bind with his first penalty, and drove a stake in our heart when we had them stopped but they got the ball back for a later TD, and arguments could be made it costs us 14 points because it so deflated our team we went into a tailspin and gave up that ridiculous 4th down play setting up the 5th TD.     2. Loss of poise.  I saw several things, but that horrendous punching and disqualification was so deflating to the teams loss of poise in performance that I wouldn't be disappointed to learn they cut him from the team, though I doubt they have the b*lls.  There should be a near zero tolerance for a role player special teamer to lose his cool that egregiously and cost the team at such a critical time.     3. Loss of AC/Poor O-Line Depth may be a fatal blow to any post season success.  We have a long long history of failure without our most important lineman.  Even though he isn't what he once was (and it has been clear to me he's playing hurt as much as simple decline has kicked in) the drop off is so dire after him that I think only with significant shuffling can we keep Rivers upright and healthy and have any chance to run an offense not always in crises.  With a poor LT, Rivers one glaring weakness, immobility is amplified 10X.  I will say his quick release saved as many sacks as Mahommes could have scrambled out of, but the difference is he can't possibly complete meaningful attacks with so little time or free space to launch it to an open receiver.  Frankly his performance under that pressure was the most impressive performance I have seen from him all year.  But heroic sack saving isn't effective offense.  This lack o-line  depth has been something MANY here have been pointing not only all season and pre season, but literally going back to last season as well.  And we had MUCH better depth last year than this.  It was my #1 concern entering the season.  It was obvious.  A brilliant GM keeps making this same error.  He admitted his failure to secure a quality O-Line his first year (after many had begged the previous GM to do the same, and I believe that is truly what cost him his job, or at least deserved to).     Things that were hopeful: ------------------------------ 1.   Hines has proven to be a warrior.  He's our most important and reliable offensive weapon, much like the pass catching RBs of River's SD teams.  We should never see another game without him being a key contributor, no different than TN using their RB to do the same.   Everyone knew Hines was the only thing working, but he kept working nonetheless.  Reich needs to stop abandoning our key offensive weapon.  I even loved when they sent him deep.  I think HE could be used much like TY used to be, leading to...   2. TY Hilton FINALLY utilized by Reich and Rivers.  TY still has tremendous value.  We were reminded of that finally.  He still has moves, he can still contribute.  Sure, he's not 24 years old anymore, but he is likely our second best weapon after Hines still.  But Rivers simply has no chemistry with him.  All game he was forcing throws to Pascal, who I like, but they had Pascal 100% locked down.  The few catches he made were 50-50 balls.     3.  We saw evidence that our TE's are capable.  Why don't we use them, and use them often?  A three headed monster that should be dominating.  I think for us to have success down the stretch, in addition to using Hilton and Hines, our 3 capable TE's need to be all over the place on short to medium routes using their size and capable hands.  We saw late (too late sadly) that they were playing.  It was almost like they weren't through 3 quarters.  Sure, TN had backed up coverage, but dang, those guys have skills and can be hit quickly.     4. Brissett has been used well in short yardage.  I am glad they are building on this.  Even his relative slowness, he looks like a lightning bolt compared to Rivers.  I do think they need to show some short yardage passing so they keep defenses honest helping his future sneaks.     5. Pinter was serviceable compared to LT options.  I hope our center comes back and finishes the season, but Pinter at least showed a little depth at G/C.     What to do in the future now that winning the division is reasonably out of reach; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. The line woes will continue to be a problem.  Depth is simply unacceptable.  I think if AC is lost for the season that we need to rethink positions, such as whether Smith could move to LT and perhaps use Pinter at RT?  I know he has "short arms" for Pro T play, but he has to be better than the other options.  I think they should strongly alter our game plans to account for lesser line e play.  Rivers didn't have time to let route develop, and with no mobility, they are going to have to improve our tepid screen play and conduct more short routes for multiple TE's in 2 TE sets.  Rivers has to be able to get the ball out quick.  I do think the play calling the past 4 weeks had improved, but something happened this game and we were just too limited until late in the game when they were hitting TEs and TY.   More please.     2. Our D should get back in line with the return of the Covid players.  I like the second half adjustments the D is making but why aren't we making these adjustments in the first half.  35 points is too much and the penalties are devastating.  Is it time to play Carrie instead of Ya Sin?  I think they should seriously consider demoting him for back ups.  He's just too much of a liability.  Perhaps if he came in off the bench we could get off the field more often in the first half.     What did you all think? 
    • I don’t mean to offend, but.....   The population of Buffalo is roughly 255,000.   The population of Chicago is roughly 2.66 million.   Our nation’s third largest city.  Plus, they were playing Green Bay, a team that historically gets good TV ratings even though it is much smaller than Buffalo.  It’s the smallest city to have a major sports franchise.  TV ratings are, in part,  why Indianapolis doesn’t get many National games unless they have someone like Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck.    It’s not just about the win-loss records.
