Colts GM raves about Jacoby Brissett: ‘He hasn’t flinched’

first_imgSimply put, he’s made general manager Chris Ballard look wise for not only trading for him in 2017, but for moving forward with him as the starter this season.“Look: Jacoby, he’s the same guy he was since the first day we traded for him,” Ballard told Colts.com in an interview discussing the first quarter of the season. “Somebody asked me a question today in my office about Jacoby and his leadership, and I said, ‘Look, what makes him really special is he’s authentic, he’s real and he’s the same guy every day — and he’s been that way since the day he walked in this building.’ He prepares — he’s always prepared like the starter.” If you’re one of the many who buried the Colts’ season after Andrew Luck’s unexpected retirement, shame on you.Jacoby Brissett has led Indianapolis to a four-way tie in the AFC South at 2-2 and has 10 touchdowns (tied for the league lead with Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson) to just two interceptions.

But it’s not his numbers that seem to impress Ballard most — it’s his poise.“I remember saying this during Andrew’s (Luck’s) press conference when he retired that, look, Jacoby won’t flinch,” he said. “And he hasn’t flinched. He’s played really good football — he’s played winning football for us each and every week.”Brissett will have face arguably his toughest challenge of the season thus far in Week 5 as he tries to keep up with Mahomes and the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium.
