What Role Did Brissett Play in the Win Over the Broncos?

Coach Rick Venturi joins JMV to look back at the Colts slim victory over the Broncos including who deserves game balls and what the Colts need to fix.

On the close game… 

“On any given Sunday - thats for real - everyone has enough talent to beat you.  All those wins in the left column count exactly the same. It means every bit as kansas city or houston.  We were looking at that heads up. This team does play with a back to their wall mentality. I was worried because they were favorites because a lot of the times, you go in there with a knock them out quickly but our guys hung in there and found a way to win in the fourth quarter.  Are we playing with fire or are we just finding a way to win?”

 

On a game ball going to Brissett...

“You have to give a game ball to Brissett.  He bailed us out. That is one of the finest plays we are going to see now and see forever.  Under the circumstances, backed up, they were killing us at that point and couldn’t make anything at that point.  He was taking it all day long and played tough all day long. All of a sudden he has one of the best pass rushers every that had such a clean shot at him, then it looked like he wrapped up - he gets out of it and throws a strike downfield. That is the play of plays.”

 

On Broncos defense… 

“They dominated the line of scrimmage.  I thought our offensive line was the worst in the Frank Reich era.  Our backs who did not get 100 yards, ran really hard. Mack made things out of nothing but even then, there was not much production at all.  Our reliables did not have a very good game. Dolye had the worst game blocking that he ever had. They turned the edge and we did not do a good job on the running game or the protection.  Jacoby did a good job detecting that rush but I thought this was his finest hour although the numbers might not show it. The difference was our defense was able to keep the score down.”
