Brissett top back up in the NFL.


Recommended Posts

He should be ranked high if anyone cares about such a ranking

 

its not clear who is starting in Miami but id take Tua or RF over him.  Personally i think Tua is going to be a good starter, and Ryan is a play maker

I think the Cowboys don't skip a beat if Dalton steps in for Dak.

 

If we don't skip a beat if JB steps in, and he plays like last year, then the Rivers experiment was a failure.

Poilian was fired because he didn't have a good backup for Peyton when he went down.  Ballard is not going to make the same mistake.  No way Eason is the backup until he proves he's ready. Which hopefully is only a year away.

I believe the Cowboys would be better.

This was more of a statement than a thread. I can't believe he is still on the roster at this point. Maybe its part of the rooney rule?

I saw the headline somewhere and had a weak moment. Should have read all the past Brisett threads first.

All the past Brissett threads? 

You mean the other 50 or so? 

Rooney rule? Where did you come up with that and how is that relevant to Brissett? 

Truthfully I don't understand why you started a thread when Brissett has been talked about to the point of nauseating for everyone.

Perhaps you shouldn’t have made this post at all?   Part of the Rooney Rule?!?Playing the Race Card?   Yeah, cuz that’s always helpful.

 

Dear God, what are you thinking?   

 

There’s a reason why the website has a delete function....   You’re so much better than this...

Well to be honest we all have a brain fart at times . :peek:

JB is no longer the top back up in the NFL.

With Foles, Winston, Mariotta, Dalton and others, JB may fall out of the top 5.  His character helps him, but his salary hurts him.

We do.   You’re 100 percent right.   I’ve posted my share of stinkers.   It happens to all of us — me included.

 

That’s why I included the last line — Mike is better than this...   much better than this. 
 

EDIT:  Sorry, this edit with Myles is an unintended mistake.   My bad.

I agree.

Wow, top backup.  Seems kind of like taking your cousin to the prom, looks good on paper but in the end it doesn't get you anything.

Cam Newton is going to be a backup if he gets signed, no?

 

Good point.   He would be better than JB too.    I hadn't heard if he's holding out for big $$ or not.

 I don't think that Ballard would trade Brissett for a 7th round pick under any circumstance. 

Brissett is worth a lot more to this team as a back up QB than what any 7th round pick would bring.

Do you guys honestly think that Cam Newton is a Ballard type of guy?

I dont think he would take a 4th right now. After this season? Different story.....

After this season he will not be under contact with us so you are correct, who knows what's going to happen.

It will all play itself out.

There are so many factors that will come into play it's hard for anyone to guess.

And Ballard sent him packing didn't he.

IMO Newton does not fit into what Ballard has preached about since he has been here. 

Newton has also had surgeries on his shoulder and his foot in that last year and like it or not that comes into play.  His style of play does not compute into a long term type of player.

No, not at all.    My comment was more with the context of JB being the best back up QB in the league.   Not just for the Colts.

You ever play a golf tournament where you HAVE to plAy everyone’s drive at least once?

 

Maybe we should petition the league for a rule change.  You HAVE to play your backup QB fir HALF the games.  That should help a bit.

  Oh, and bring back the crowd noise and cranking the heat up!

    • Assuming we come out of the 1st 7 games at 5-2 which is a likely outcome, we won't really find out what this team is made of until we play the Ravens and Titans.  
    • The only element that "might" struggle is our running game, but I don't think that will happen either. Our pass O, pass D, and rush D should all dominate. My fear is we come out with a very conservative game plan, playing soft zone, and trying to not pass. 
    • I'm optimistic too, but "potential" can be a trap. I like the measurables of the guys we have, but most are wildcards. And let's be honest, the "potential" we've had has been a bit stunted in terms of growth due to QB woes 2 of our last 4 years. But yes, we do have a lot of speedy athletic, although raw and small school guys at WR. TE is however another story. If we remove Burton from the conversation (he's not a traditional TE, and is more slot than anything), Doyle is the only proven, and MAC is the only one I see with legit potential. At RB, Taylor is the only legit true RB aside from Mack. Wilkins is good depth, but he's not bell cow between the Ts guy. He's a zone rushing back most effective on the edge. Great depth, and will look great later in games behind our OL, but not a #1. Hines is a great APB and is legit. 
    • The Colts not only need to win, but they need to come out and make a statement on Sunday. They need to destroy the Jets on both sides of the ball and win this game by a landslide.
    • Ballard completely rebuild 98% of the roster in three years. I don't count 2017 because he didn't have his own coaching staff and had to deal with Pagano. Even with Andrew Luck retiring, Ballard never stopped building the Colts into the highly talented roster they currently have today. I don't think Ballard gets enough credit just like I don't think Andrew Luck got enough when he was carrying the Colts pitiful roster for multiple years on his back.
