So, anyone NOT think the Brisset experiment is over?

I do think it's not over - if for no other reason than who are we going to replace him with? I don't think Ballard and Reich would take any QB we would be in a position to draft over Jacoby, and the same is likely true of any free agents.

I will be shocked if Jacoby isn't the starter week 1 of the 2020 season.

I thought they would at least play Chad to see what they may have in him (I don’t know if he was active today or not). But I guess it is Jacoby until the bitter end.

 I hope the experiment is over. This is exactly what I knew was going to happen when Jacoby was named the QB

We didn't really have a choice with Luck bailing, but I said to myself and on the forum it's only fair to give him the entire year. But he's showing that he's a middle of the road QB who will be to inconsistent overall. He'll win 2 solid ones then have 2 brutal losses.

 

Hopefully we find the next 'franchise' soon.

I wouldn't put all of blame on JB play but it is apparent that he is at best an average QB. He is not going to win games on his passing ability. We had no receivers all season. our TE play is not great. Doyle is not a vertical receiving threat. He is a possession type receiver. We have a good OL for running the ball. However the pass blocking has not been great. Not sure if that is on the line or JB's tendency to hold onto ball too long.

If we can draft a good QB we should. At best JB keeps position warm for a prospect. CB needs to get creative and do whatever is necessary to trade into #1 slot for Burrows. I would give up our #1  and #2 we got from Washington + a #1 next year for Burrows.

 


That wouldn’t be enough.  
 

Bengals won’t trade out no matter what IMO, but especially not for that weak of a deal.

So do you think Jacody is better than Teddy Bridgewater?

Our O line was at the top in time to pass ... Pass blocking has been great its a QB holding the ball to long.

People need to understand that Brissett is NOT the answer. Even for next year. 

 

But what's more worrying is the way the Colts seem to view Brissett. Didn't Reich say he believe Brissett is a top 20 QB in the NFL?

Based on that statement he'll want to keep Brissett as the Colts starting QB next season.

Delusional head coach and very worrying in regards to the future of the Colts.

 

Hopefully Ballard is smarter than that.

This is Ballard's plan of misirection. Let the masses blame Brissett for his shorty comings, which r evident, so it takes the focus of of his lackluster free agent acquisitions and poor drafting.

 

Poor drafting?? Are you ok my child?

What’s most troublesome to me is the Colts will wrap up 2019 as a top 5 rushing team in the NFL, and rank in the top half in those stats that tend to indicate a winning team - third down conversions, turnover differential, points allowed...  its when you see that they’ll finish ranked 27th or 28th in passing yards that the truth hits you between the eyes.  This team as built isn’t too far away.   A road playoff win last year.  One major thing changed.  The most important thing.  And when you can run the ball as well as the Colts do, to not be any threat through the air is abysmal.

    • Third and long, sure. Short yardage, red zone, goal line, probably need to be able to block to play TE.   I don't think his hands are suspect. I've watched plenty of his games, there are a few drops, nothing too alarming. His technique as a pass catcher is sound.   I don't know how you conclude I have things mixed up about his weight. He was 259 at the Combine, not 253. He's listed at 253 on the Colts site.  https://www.pro-football-reference.com/draft/2022-combine.htm https://www.nfl.com/prospects/jelani-woods/3200574f-4f50-0422-b6bf-870b499f48cd   You can disregard the college measurements if you like, they're generally not reliable. But 20 pounds is dramatic. Ok State (where he was almost exclusively a blocker) and Virginia consistently listed him at 275. ESPN listed him at 265. More importantly, Ballard said he'll play at 255-260, which is right around where he's measured/listed since spring. So the article stating the team wants him to put on 25-30 pounds is unfounded (and most likely comes from a misunderstanding of Ballard's "230 pounds of lean mass" comment). And he can certainly get stronger in his lower body without putting on such a significant amount of weight.   The comp to Mo is natural, although Mo is a slightly higher BMI guy and not as athletic/explosive as Woods. But when Ballard was talking about Woods and brought up Mo, it was specific to the challenges they'll face as blockers, given their height.
    • The list of bust is more than the list of successful QB's taken with high first round picks.  You mentioned the Bears and Fields (who is not a bust...yet) but you cannot forget the Bears with Trubisky.  That went for 4 years before letting him go.  
    • No need to rehash a bunch of history over Ballard's draft picks.  The rankings are opinions more than analytics.   CIN could have picked Tua, or traded down for something.  I'm simply saying that they maximized what picks they have had.   Like CIN with Burrow, the Colts were lucky Ryan became available, or else our FO might be in the bottom 16 right now (Autry and Houston for Lewis and Ben, stuff like that).  IMO.    
    • We had a roster that was ready to win.  We weren’t in position to struggle with a young quarterback as he learned the NFL….    It’s one thing to luck into Mac Jones as New England did or Lamar Jackson as Baltimore did.       Look at Cleve with Mayfield, the Jets with Darnold, and maybe Wilson.   Arizona with Rosen.    GrBay with Love,  SF with Lance, Chi with Fields.    How many examples do you need?        Heck, Mahomes and Watson went, I think 10 and 12 because teams DIDN’T realize how good they’d be.    Acquiring a great quarterback is HARD!   Remember, everything is obvious with hindsight.   We’ve only been searching for three years….  20, 21 and now 22.   It’s not like we’re struggling…
