Brissett starting for Colts against Cardinals

Scott Tolzien was the starter at quarterback in the Colts dismal season opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Pagano wants to keep the Cardinals guessing, which might be the silliest and most unnecessary gambit in the history of sports. LB Karlos Dansby needs one interception to become fifth National Football League player with 20 interceptions and 40 or more sacks in career.

It's impossible to overstate what an epic no-brainer this is.

Arians said tight end Troy Niklas, who appeared on the injury report on Thursday with a hip ailment, will play against the Colts unless he suffers a setback before the game. "This is one of them", Peterson said. While Brissett is an upgrade, it's not a significant one for the pass offense. One man doesn't make a team. Brissett is a sharp guy, sharp enough to know the First Rule of Quarterbacking: Throw it to the guys in your own uniform.

Hard start: We're certain Brissett and offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski have noticed, but we'll offer a reminder. They're not burning the playbook in Week 2 in his absence, but it's very possible that they skip over a few pages with him out. That's a process that happens over time...

The coach said Boone, a former teammate of Iupati in San Francisco, is ready despite being with the team such a short time.

"Sometimes it's just about containing the run or containing the pass, rather than losing technique to get a sack, or me undercutting the ball to get an interception".

With the decision not yet official, numberFire's models now expect the two Colts quarterbacks to combine for 246.4 passing yards with 1.22 touchdowns and 1.69 interceptions in Week 2.

Brissett, 24, started two games for the Patriots last season during Tom Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension following an injury to backup Jimmy Garoppolo. Tolzien, there's no mystery.

They've opened a season 0-2 13 times and regrouped to reach the playoffs only twice - in 2014 and the strike-impeded 1987 season. He's been able to produce and score and lead drives and all those types of things. But once the Lions turned a 17-15 deficit into a 35-17 lead in a stunning flurry of a little more than five game minutes, the plans apparently were scrapped. "He's got a mental toughness about him and just a presence about him that I really like". The Colts sent wide receiver Philip Dorsett to the Pats for Brissett.

"I'll be ready to roll on Sunday", he said.

For the Cardinals to avoid their first 0-2 start in the Arians' era, they will need Palmer, who turns 38 in December, to revert back to his MVP-worthy ways of 2015 when he set multiple career and franchise passing records.

Brissett finished 20 of 37 for 216 yards. That trade alone showed everyone that the Colts weren't comfortable with their quarterback situation coming into the season.
