Colts QB Jacoby Brissett said he does not feel pressure to score an excessive amount of points in a game.
“You can’t get into the game where you’re playing offense versus offense or defense versus defense, things like that,” Brissett said, via George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin. “Just go out there and play football. You put your best foot forward.”
Colts OC Nick Sirianni compared Brissett’s ability to avoid pass rushers in the pocket to Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger.
“He is strong,” Sirianni said. “There will be a guy that comes through the line, and he will just be able to get him off of him. It’s very Ben Roethlisberger-like where he can just get rid of a free defender or a guy who is coming free.”
Sirianni also praised Brissett’s ability to “keep his eyes downfield” and credited his work with Colts QBs coach Marcus Brady.
“He is just a strong guy that can keep his eyes downfield. (Quarterbacks coach) Marcus Brady has done a great job working with him on that. Marcus is constantly throwing bags at him, running at him where he has to step up in the pocket, look down the field and make his read while Marcus is doing all these things. So tribute to Marcus of how good he has done there.”
