Scott Tolzien Is Not The Colts’ Starting Quarterback

This past Sunday in Los Angeles against the Rams, the Colts suffered a horrible loss, 46 to 9. Besides the defense not doing their job, the offense could not get anything started after Scott Tolzien threw a pick 6 on his first passing attempt. Tolzien was in for the entire first half and most of the second. Half way through the 3rd quarter, Tolzien threw yet another pick 6 extending the Rams lead even more. Late in the 4th quarter the coaching staff finally took Tolzien out and put Jacoby Brissett in, traded for just 8 days before the game, in to play.

Once Brissett got in there was an instant mood change with the offense as they marched down the field, gaining 24 yards on a Marlon Mack carry and five more with a Robert Turbin carry. The play right after that, the Colts let Brissett take a shot and throw one down 50 yards to the Rams five yard line connecting with Donte Moncrief. Marlon Mack then proceeded to punch in the ball for the touchdown finishing out an almost perfect drive. After seeing that, the Colts coaching staff kept Brissett in to finish the lop-sided game.

Next week the Colts play the Cardinals in Indianapolis and Coach Pagano knows what all Colts fans want to see next week, a Jacoby Brissett led offensive charge against the David Johnson-less Cardinals. Playing the Cardinals will be a great test for Brissett, seeing as the Cardinals have an elite secondary consisting of Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, and Justin Bethel, who had a 80 yard pick 6 vs the Lions. Even if that game doesn’t go to well, I think all Colts fans can agree that Brissett is a way better option than Scott Tolzien, who the Colts may want to look at getting rid of and replacing after his performance yesterday.
