Love Of Brissett is sickening

The point is (which you are totally missing) is that 25 million is obscene money for a backup that didn't do anything. Businesses are failing , families can't make ends meet...but a backup hardly used QB makes 25 million. Does that make sense to you?

You are worth what someone is willing to pay.

I have been a Colts fan since I was 7 years old and that is a long time.  I have never seen an organization kiss a players behind like the Colts do with Jacoby Brissett.  Brissett was a 3rd round pick

He is a leader in the locker room.     Also,   he is obviously much better than Chad

I don’t that I’ve ever seen a longer and more clueless rant than this. What a load of hot garbage.

If we bring him back it won't be for (and it was 20 mill not 25). It probably will be around 10 Mill for 1 year which is reasonable.

Yes, I don’t get the hate. He is one of best backups in the league, he is well respected amongst players and staff, he is great role model outside the organization. He is not our franchise QB. If, a big if, he is re-signed it will not be for that $$. Plus he took his benching in stride and did everything asked of him. He is one of my favorite players on the team

I agree. He is a awesome teammate, is he worth 20 Mill a year, no he isn't that I will say. Having said that, 10 Mill for 1 year I can see which is still great backup money. We might bring him and Rivers back for cheaper which I would be fine with. We went 11-5 and made the playoffs with those 2 and darn near beat the Bills.

I'm not sure what's sad about it.   It's how things work

Doctors , surgeons, Presidents ..etc...earn far less than someone that earns 20 + million to to QB sneak or throw a ball once or twice a year?  Hmmm.

See nobody knows what he does in the film room helping Rivers out either, there is more too it. I wouldn't pay him 20 Mill a year again but 10 Mill for 1 year I could live with that.

What is disingenuous?

The constant talking of how special of a player Brissett is, and even the apology by Ballard in regards to when he said "the jury is still out on Brissett". He said that was a crappy choice of words, when it was not, because his actions backed the sentiment up by signing another qb and relegating Brissett to the bench. Unless he meant they were a crappy choice of words because he had decided Brissett is nothing but a backup QB, but I doubt that. 

 

Saying he is a special player (which I am pretty sure, I have heard numerous times) seems disingenuous because their actions ultimately don't back that sentiment up. 

 

Or maybe they mean he is a special backup, which would, actually, make sense. I just have never heard of a backup QB be talked about so highly.

I guess you never heard of Gary Kubiak or Frank Reich

   They made the careers being excellent backups

So you don't see anything wrong with a backup making a million dollars per snap?

Not really.   It isn't my money.   Also,  he wasn't the backup when he signed the contract.   He also runs the scout team in practice,   works with the coaches during the week and stays ready to play.   I get you're jealous.  You gotta let it go

Ever heard Sean Payton talk about Taysom Hill?

I was only a few years old when Frank Reich was in the league. I know how he is talked about now, and I know he is famous for his great comeback against the Oilers, of which the praise for that game is absolutely warranted.

No, I do not follow the Saints. 

 

Isn't he used more than Brissett is?

 

 

Is your point that high praise for backup QB's with no QB controversy is common?

Oh..i didn't realize he did all that! He's underpaid for sure.
