Colts splitting reps between Scott Tolzien and Jacoby Brissett

AP

The one thing the Colts do know is that Andrew Luck‘s not practicing this week.

Beyond that, Chuck Pagano’s not tipping his hand.

The Colts coach told reporters he planned to split first-team reps between quarterbacks Scott Tolzien and Jacoby Brissett in practice this week.

That’s frankly a terrible sign for Tolzien, as he’s been there all offseason, and was sufficiently bad that he was pulled late in last week’s loss to the Rams.

If Brissett can still be in single-digit practices with the Colts and make enough of an impression to make them abandon a plans months in the making, it speaks volumes, and points to him taking over eventually, even if not this week against the Cardinals.

  1. As to the rumor that Dog the Bounty Hunter has joined the search for Andrew Luck, as a Cards fan let’s hope he is unsuccessful in his search. Tolzien will do just fine, thank you.

  2. I feel sorry for Jacoby Brissett… to go from the Patriots to the Colts, from Kraft to Ursay, from Belichick to Pagano. Now there’s a trio of hard knocks. In fact, the only thing worse that I can think of would be to end up with this year’s Jets.

    Are you serious?
    He couldn’t wait to get that cheating label off of him.
    Probably took a shower right after he got traded.

  4. Start Brissett. Get him some playing time. He played well in NE. With the Cardinals coming to town, the Colt’s will most likely be 0-2 this time next week anyways, so why not see what you’ve got with him?

  5. The big issue for the Colts–where is the talent on this team aside from Luck? Defense? Offensive Line? Running Backs?
    They need to add a few pieces on Defense–maybe the new Safety Hooker will be a fine. But Vontae Davis is not young.

    They seem closer to needing major rebuilding than contenting. Luck is going to waste his prime much like Peyton Manning.

  6. I don’t get it. Tolzien was not one of Ballard’s pick ups. He has gotten rid of many of Grigson’s morbid signings, but keeps awful Tolzien around.Release Tolzien bring back Stephen Morris and make Brissett the #1 until Luck comes back. It’s not rocket science.

  7. The Colts have historically had backup QB issues, since the early Peyton Manning days. I just don’t get how they insist on not trying to find quality backup.
    Now it’s only deserving that they keep suffering the consequences of bad planning.
