"Just get up and come back firing", he said. There's no point in not seeing what Brissett can do with the reigns, and go from there.
Indianapolis made the right choice in benching Tolzien for Brissett. Pagano has been contemplating a change, but his decision probably will be a game-time one. It's not just him playing. The point still exists though. Williams - a former Colts draft pick - is a speed back but has shown little pass-catching ability.
1939: The past year a team failed to score a touchdown at home in two games.
"Good teams, they don't lose two in a row", safety Tyrann Mathieu said. He has been his whole career. They convert only 34 percent of their third downs without him, and 42 percent with him.
Jacoby Brissett will start under center today, when the Arizona Cardinals and the Indianapolis Colts get underway in Indy's 2017 home opener at Lucas Oil Stadium. You've got to have defense; you've got to have everything.
That's not what this article is about though.
Throw in to the mix the turmoil between Chuck Pagano and former GM Ryan Grigson, who takes the lions share of the blame for the terrible roster, and Luck's successes become even more impressive.
TEMPE, Ariz. - The Arizona Cardinals' offense continued to take hits Friday when wide receiver John Brown and left guard Mike Iupati were ruled out of Sunday's game at Indianapolis. They are the only two players left in the National Football League to have played in the 1990s. Bjeorn Werner started 16 over three seasons. It might take more than one player to replace David Johnson. What we do know with certainty is that Beckham was limited in practice this week. It's baffling to imagine how he could have thought Tolzien would the Colts the best chance of winning. Any idiot with a Twitter account could have argued you otherwise.
This deal makes it hard for them to trade him away.
In a much smaller sample size last Sunday, Brissett out-performed Tolzien. Carson Palmer's three picks don't worry me because normally he won't be asked to throw the ball that many times. I'm going to screw some things up. "He's fast and he's going to be a heck of a player".
Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton reminded Arizona reporters on a conference call that Indianapolis feels the same way after they got roughed up by a Rams team that wasn't expected to challenge for anything this season other than mediocrity.
And the good news is, when Ballard makes a mistake like he did starting Scott Tolzien, he's going to own it. I expect the Cardinals to pull out a win in what could be the ugliest game of the season, but it's hardly a sure thing.
Gone are the days of egoistical authority. On the defensive end, a Margus Hunt sack alone with a Darius Butler forced fumble that was recovered by Jeremiah George were the only highlights as the Rams logged 373 yards of total offense, including 310 yards through the air.
