Frank Reich: Jacoby Brissett’s our QB, still fighting to get better

The Colts slipped out of playoff contention by losing their last four games and quarterback Jacoby Brissett‘s play has also slipped over that period, but the Colts have no interest in taking a look at Chad Kelly in the final two weeks.

That was the response from head coach Frank Reich on Tuesday when he was asked if the team would consider giving Kelly playing time before the end of the regular season.

“Jacoby’s our quarterback,” Reich said, via Stephen Holder of “We’re still fighting to get better for these next two games and, really, for next year. Jacoby is still a second-year starter.”

Brissett was 18-of-34 for 165 yards in Monday night’s 34-7 loss to the Saints and Reich said they “had a long talk” on Tuesday about the mistakes that Brissett made during the game. That work will continue for a couple more weeks and then the Colts will move on to forming plans for what they hope will be a more fruitful 2020 season.

  1. I saw him play earlier in the year and thought he looked pretty good. Watching him play the last two games was painful. Passes at guys feet, over their heads…I don’t know what happened but it’s not good.

  2. That was a real bad game. Did coach talk to OL, Mack, and Hines? Jacoby could have used their help last night.

    Mack is serviceable, but he is not reason to try and keep upgrading the RB position. He looks a step or two too slow.

  3. I think Brissett can be good on a healthy team, but he can’t pick up and carry a team on his back.

    He is a solid backup… a solid short term starter.

  4. The Dolts are stupid for not evaluating roster talent after being eliminated from the playoffs the last two games. Same level of stupidity as my Bears. Better luck to both teams next year.
