I'm not making excuses for Brisset, but I don't know if any back up QB could have done as well with the mess the Colts had at WR
Brisset didn’t end the season with many weapons. But his problems extend beyond that.
He won’t throw to a guy unless he is already open.
He doesn’t throw deep, if he does his timing is off and he misses his window.
He has a strong arm but he doesn’t have it under control and doesn’t throw with touch on his throws enough.
He is unwilling to take chances and takes his outlet too much.
He takes too long to get through his progressions and protection breaks down, with a good line he should get rid of the ball much faster.
I think he finished 24th in the league and that is with a good running game and protection.

He is a below average QB, and once teams started to figure him out he got exposed. I think any QB landing just in the teens would add to our win total. But I don’t think we should be looking for incrementally better. We should be looking for the best QB we can get and make teams worry about whether to defend the pass or the run when facing the offense.

No, I think he goes 15-32.

Still way early in the draft process but one trade that I think might be worthwhile is to package the two second round picks (Pick 34 and 44) and move up into the first round to gain a second Round 1 pick.

Even accounting for the Day 1 draft day premium, you should be able to snag a selection somewhere between Pick 21 - 25.

Basically do the opposite of last year's trade with Washington.

Mel Kiper Jr. Says there will be 25-30 receivers going off the board in the first three rounds, with as many as five in the first and eight in the second rounds, doubling down on this being a historically deep WR #NFLDraft class.

All those guys will need a good QB to get them the ball. Not all of them will end up with one of those. I just hope whichever one we draft gets a good one throwing the ball. That is Priority #1.

I agree QB is top priority. The team starts with the QB.

I do think a good receiver can make an average QB better. I don’t see a QB as a prerequisite for drafting a WR. You might add a better QB next year or in the future. It’s also like saying you should t draft a RB unless you have an offensive line. Regardless of position I believe in adding the best talent you can get. It all contributes to making a better team.

I agree with you, even if you don't think so. We got Marvin a year ahead of Peyton, and that worked out very well.
