The NFL season is upon us, and JMV is joined by Greg Rakestraw to discuss all the latest happenings all around the country. In Indianapolis, the team is still reeling from Andrew Luck's decision last week. With the season starting this Sunday, the time is now for Jacoby Brissett to step into the spotlight. Rakestraw breaks down his strengths and weaknesses and what Brissett can do to make the Colts competitive in 2019. 

On the improved wide receiver group for the Colts this season:

"The wide receiver depth is so much better. Yes they found ways to get 53 catches from Chester Rodgers and Zach Pascal did some good things. Dontrelle Inman was a find. But still, with Devin Funchess, Deon Cain, Parris Campbell -- there is so much more of a big play threat."

On Jacoby Brissett's misleading career stats:

"There's a couple of numbers for Jacoby, that seem not to correspond. He's never been a guy to throw many interceptions. I don't think in any of his years as a starter at NC State nor in his one season of significant playing time with the Colts, he didn't throw double digits interceptions in any of those years. Yet his completion percentage is about a 60% clip. And while 20 years ago that was pretty normal in the NFL, now you are kind of behind the curve."

As the Colts season gets underway, JMV and the entire crew at 107.5 the Fan will keep you up-to-date with all the latest happenings around the team.
