Let's Trade Brissett To Cowboys


Recommended Posts

I hate to see any player get hurt in the NFL.  But I figured if a team got desperate at QB, it would be the perfect time to dump Jacoby Brissett for a draft pick.  The Cowboys are in trouble likely and it would be a perfect time to move Brissett.  He is gone at the end of the year anyways so might as well get something out of him, since they likely won't get a comp pick if he signs somewhere else since we will sign free agents ourselves.

Yeah, I don't know if Jones would want Brissett.  Ballard should at least reach out.    I'd be happy if we could get a 4th or 5th round pick for him.   However, he may have more value for us this season.  He's good insurance for us. 

Fitz would be the best option for the Cowboys.

I see that not Brissett, but Chad Kelly, got mentioned in one media story about the Cowboys' situation.

Dak Prescott, who was exceptional to start the season, is already out for the year after fracturing and dislocating his ankle against the New York Giants. Rookie Ben DiNucci and veteran Garrett Gilbert are now the only healthy QBs left on the Cowboys roster. Dallas will need to add another quarterback in the next week, but what are their options?

 

The most high profile QB on the market is still Colin Kaepernick. The former San Francisco 49er hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016, so Jones might not want to take a chance on the rusty veteran. Kaepernick would also bring even more drama to a locker room that’s already on the verge of crumbling.

 

There are some other notable free agent quarterbacks available for the taking, however. Drew Anderson and Drew Stanton are two veterans who could pick up the offense rather quickly. Chad Kelly, DeShone Kizer, and Shea Patterson all have upside as young players, but they might not even be upgrades from DiNucci.

with their defense, that's the most likely scenario

And I read that their decimated offensive line got mauled by Washington Sunday. Six sacks. The opposing pass rush would give Swag the opportunity to showcase that speed he brags about.

Long before the game was lost, the Cowboys were defeated on the line of scrimmage. Their rag-tag battery of blockers entered FedEx Field too light for their weight class vs. Washington’s vaunted defensive front. And when quarterback Andy Dalton was injured in dirty fashion, the unit lacked any sign of protective instinct or fight in a 25-3 beating.

 

How far the offense has fallen.

 

It’s not just because of Dak Prescott’s Oct. 11 ankle injury that the once-high scoring Cowboys have lost their way. It would have mattered little who was at quarterback Sunday behind a protection unit as overwhelmed as this one.

Yeah. Imagine if they sign Kelly and he ends up getting them into the playoffs

 

Oh man...if Kelly goes to DAL and has some Tony Romo type emergence and leads to them to playoffs...this place might explode. That would be fantastic to watch.

His mobility would actually serve him (and DAL) well. No idea about the rest of his game though.

Sounds like a good idea. I'm sure they'll give up a first and take on his contract. Amiright?

 

They'd only owe him about $3m. I'd even be okay with the Colts paying the remaining salary if they're willing to give up a fourth.

Cowboys are better off taking chances with Air Gordon (Anthony Gordon) off the street (is he signed by any team?) than sign QBs with a limited upside and expensive contract.

I love Anthony Gordon and would love to see him get a chance. I just basically want to get rid of Brissett for ANYTHING!

I would only if we were mathematically eliminated this season.

 

It wouldn't be ideal, but I'd do it for the pick. And I'd re-sign Chad Kelly (based on the basically zero information that we have about Kelly, but I'm assuming he knows the offense).

If all we would get is a 5th or 6th then no way we should trade him

I definitely think trading him this season is out of the question.  We've already planned for his presence on our payroll despite his actual pay.  If we trade him after this season, it probably can be assumed we resign him in a backup roll and thus much less than $15 million per year.

 

Assuming a backup QB pay, I'd definitely trade him for a 5th.  But I can agree with you in the sense that that 5th rounder could be a swing and a miss.

Maybe even the Pats Brisset looked pretty good in BB QB friendly system .

Not sure it's truly QB friendly. I think it diminishes the need for athleticism, but requires grey matter and the ability to read Ds and progress well. NE also has historically installed a lot of opponent-specific packages weekly. Brady didn't have to be freak, just had to be smart and efficient. And he was both.

Brissett is a decent backup QB (look around - he’s perhaps the very best backup QB available given he knows Colts system and can step right in) - and any team with playoff aspirations needs two capable QB in case starter is injured (for a few plays or longer).  Having one would leave us exposed.  Trading Brissett for a draft pick is shortsighted.  He would command very little in return and whatever we would get would be a draft pick in the future.

    • He's definitely not a top 5 cornerback at all..   Alexander, Ramsey, White, Howard, Humphrey, and tons of others have been way better than him this year
    • Right. Reich talked about it in the offseason...that explosive plays were a missing ingredient. Whether he practiced what he preached is a different story (and of course there’s context that goes into that...like who their QB was). I am just saying that he has indicated that he wants to be more than a methodical clock control offense. And I think Reich will look to do that...when they have the QB in place.   DVOA definitely has the Colts defense rated ahead of the offense. The Colts  overall defense was #7 and the overall offense was #12. More specific to passing, the Colts passing offense was #16 and the Colts passing defense was #8.   The defensive ratings are likely skewed by the first half of the season...but the offense had the easiest schedule of any team...and still managed to be middle of the pack in passing offense (according to DVOA).    Yes there’s room for improvement on defense...but it’s tough to expect better than a top 7 unit. An edge rusher will help with the pressure rates...but they have showed they can make big plays and create takeaways. I would say the defense is pretty damn close to being a viable SB winning defense (especially when teams like KC, GB and BUF are currently playing to go to the SB).   So the priority should be the passing offense. It’s the necessity to this team getting to the next level...which is a SB. Otherwise, they would have to buck a trend that only historically elite defenses have been able to do.   And to improve the offense...they need a franchise QB and additional weapons. 
    • Well Frank said moving him to tackle would be discussed this off-season so the Colts are at least considering it.  Rather they do it or not remains to be seen.
    • Good blooper reel of Cole vs Louisiana with 10s left in 2Q where the BJ takes him out.  Good backpedaling and change of direction with enough speed to build up enough force to get knocked down.  May need some NFL strength conditioning to help shed blocks.
    • Do I need to point this out? We all know how valuable LT's are in the draft. If Quentin Freaking Nelson was LT quality, he would have not been paid a # ton of money to be a guard. He would have been scooped up ASAP as a TACKLE.     What....like every team missed this and suddenly he can be just as awesome as a tackle?
