The Indianapolis Colts are coming off of their most impressive win of the season by far, and it just so happens that their quarterback didn’t clear 200 passing yards and didn’t throw a touchdown. But, does that really describe how Jacoby Brissett has played thus far in the year? Does it mean that he didn’t have a good game simply because his statistics in Week 5 weren’t spectacular?

There are differing opinions on Brissett through the first five weeks of the season. He’s not the top-5 QB that Andrew Luck was entering this season before he retired. He’s also not the same quarterback we saw play most of the season in 2017 either.

So, what is Brissett?

There’s a lot surrounding the quarterback this season. A significantly better offensive line with Quenton Nelson, Anthony Castonzo, and company have done exactly what they need to do to protect him. Meanwhile the backfield feeds this offense through Marlon Mack’s success, and is getting some contribution from Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines as well right now.

The receiver corps is shaky due to injuries, but Brissett also has to deal with the success rate of the defense as well. And that may not be the easiest thing to do.

Today, Matt goes into what he sees in the Colts’ starting quarterback. What sort of season is he on pace for this year? Who is he to this offense, and does he have another “it” factor as opposed to having it on the field?

There are a lot of questions surrounding the QB. Several analysts are trying to nail down exactly what level Brissett will sit at the rest of the year, and into the future. Well, Matt takes his shot at it today.

Additionally, Matt goes through the updated PFF grades for the Colts through Week 5. A few have become risers on the analytical site, while at other positions, there are multiple players seeing exactly what a slippery slope looks like.
