Brissett hot early for Colts against Cardinals

Brissett hot early for Colts against Cardinals

The logic goes like this: If a mediocre Los Angeles Rams team can score 46 points against the Colts, the David Johnson-less Cardinals should be able to muster at least half that total and limit third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett enough to pull to.500 Sunday. Pagano wants to keep the Cardinals guessing, which might be the silliest and most unnecessary gambit in the history of sports.

Being shorthanded in the secondary hardly bodes well with Bruce Arians in town.

It's impossible to overstate what an epic no-brainer this is.

Without Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis in the lineup and any frontline pressure to speak of, the still unsafe Larry Fitzgerald and the rest of the Cards' offense is poised to have a field day against a struggling and tired Colts defensive unit that allowed Jared Goff to have the best game of his career a week ago. How do you get the best out of your players if you aren't willing to admit you made a mistake by hitching your wagon to Tolzien, who didn't even outplay Stephen Morris the last two preseasons? "This is one of them", Peterson said. It's not just him playing.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano must work with offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski to implement an offensive gameplan that can benefit Brissett. That's a process that happens over time...

The problem with starting Brissett is how short of a time he's been with the team. It would be a very challenging situation.

Virendar Sehwag, former Indian cricketer on Twitter congratulating Sindhu tweeted, "At 22 Pusarla Venkata Sindhu is a legend". It was a crafty ploy to further discourage her opponent, whose body language, it must be stressed, was not up to the mark.

After a couple of runs, Palmer threw a ball to Jaron Brown that he couldn't catch.

The Colts saw that they needed to make a change at backup quarterback, which is why they dealt a former first-round pick for Brissett in the first place.

The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly experiencing another shakeup at quarterback entering Week 2, and it could have an impact on the fantasy value of their top receivers. Tolzien, there's no mystery.

Week 2 of the 2017 National Football League season is here.

"We haven't had any injuries over there other than Robert so we should play better defensively for four quarters", Arians said.

Brissett didn't get much help from the running game as they averaged 2.6 yards per carry on 29 rush attempts. "We played really good for three (in Detroit) and if we can just sustain that for four we'd have the defense I think we should have". I don't see Brissett having a great first start against Arizona.
