    The Hoyer deal I get and relative for what other backup QBs make both sides found a happy middle ground.

    But what pressure was there to extend JB now instead of letting him play out his previous deal?

    This is really not about looking down on lesser QBs but more about business decisions. A least for me.

    I don't know if I would use the word "pressure" but fact is he was in the final year of his contract. By extending him today at the dollars he would have earned anyway with the franchise tag, the Colts gain some cap flexibility and have a quality QB under contract for 2 years instead of just 1.

    Obviously a young starting QB familiar with their system. I only saw him play during a preseason game, and to my untrained eye, he looked pretty good. Well, good enough. Completed 80% of his passes and had good mobility. Maybe they see/know (or pray) that he has developed enough?

    Locker room economics are an often overlooked aspect with some of these contracts. The Colts said they were all in with Brissett and also paid Hoyer. It sets the hierarchy that Brissett is the guy in the locker room. The deal gives the Colts flexibility going forward. If they’re right they have him at below market value, if they’re wrong the deal is front loaded and they are in position to draft a QB high in all likelihood. It looks like a good deal for both sides. I think he more suited to be a high end backup QB but time will tell.

    Gronk's retirement did not hamstring the Pats offense. They'll be just fine without him.

    And we'll see what losing Luck actually does to a team that have had 2 years to hedge their bets

    None of that helps, I understand that. Think of the implications of geography as it pertains to Indy tho and all the other issues make perfect sense

    Trying to construct a scenario whereby this can somehow be seen as another part of Deflategate Karma.

    No Grigson
    No Mike Adams saying the ball he picked felt "soft"
    No Mortensen pack of lies.
    No suspension for Brady.
    No showcasing of Brissett, including subbing for Jimmy G., beating the Texans and playing the Bills game with a busted thumb...the stuff of legends.
    No trade to the Colts.
    No $30MM contract for a good guy who would probably have never seen that kind of payday.
    ...
    Works for me...more power to ya, Jacoby....take the Dolts and their addled owner for all their worth.

    I don’t really understand why this is worthy of ridicule, other than the tone/style of the message. An NFL player who isn’t a theoretical rookie should indeed not be paid based on what the team hopes he will become, contrary to all relevant indicators like poor past performance with the same team. Brissett was 4-11 with an 81 passer rating and abysmal 5.26 ANY/A. They’re basically saying, well, we’re asking you to play the same position as Andrew Luck, so we’re going to pay you the same salary range as Luck.

    Granted. Hoyer’s $4M deal made it more logical to give Brissett a raise, but that is quite a leap from the $4M for Hoyer to $28M. That’s insane. Brady makes 27.5M; Rodgers is highest paid, I believe, at somewhere near $33M. This is a guy who last week was probably not going to get more than $5M on the open market. The only thing that’s changed about him is the circumstances, NOT the player.

    Maybe the tone. It's all good, sorry not trying to ridicule.

    1. This isn't 2017, different team, plus apparently more development by JB and they believe in him;
    2. This is more about $15M/yr not $28M for 2020;
    3. There are so many different aspects going on with that team that we just don't know enough to just make this about comparing his salary to other QBs, imo.
    4. Why do we even care?

    Unreal.

    Brissett took Indy to the cleaners all by himself.

    He suggested to Irsay and Ballard they do shots before they discuss business.
