In the Starting Line-Up
Sacks:Jacoby takes a lot of sacks... means he can't get the ball out or he can't make decisions quick enough... He's a back up, not a starter...
Pats need to take a run at Jameis Winston... they should have brought him in last year...
Andrew Luck 2017: 41
Jacoby Brissett 2018: 52
Clearly Andrew Luck is a backup QB at best too. Because he takes a lot of sacks. Amirite? Only 9 less than the guy who'd lead the league in planking the following season
Dude, there's a reason Andrew Luck is no longer in the league and it's because the former Colts GM, Ryan Grigson, is a freaking idiot who drastically undervalued the front line and completely failed to protect Luck. Sure, brissett gets sacked more than Luck anyway, but isn't that to be expected? Luck had an embarrassment of God given athletic talent to fall back on and Brissett really doesn't.
When they had a proper offensive line in front of them, Luck's sack rate dropped to 18 and Jacoby's to 27. Ironically, still a difference of 9.
Again, Jacoby is higher but that's to be expected.
Generally speaking getting sacked is only partly on the quarterback. The fact that both QBs cut their rate in half under Ballard puts the blame squarely where it really belongs, on the empty suit that preceded Ballard as Colts GM
