CARSON Quincy Wilson Color Rush Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Jacoby Brissett’s cool, collected performance in the season opener showed why the Indianapolis Colts are confident they can thrive without Andrew Luck.Brissett only lamented his meager mistakes and the fact he never got a chance to make up for them in overtime.Brissett passed for 190 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts’ 30-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday in his first start since Luck’s shocking retirement announcement 15 days ago.The loss had little to do with Brissett, who executed almost every assignment in coach Frank Reich’s game plan splendidly.“He was in complete control,” Reich said of his quarterback. “He was poised. He knew what he wanted, and he made it work.”Brissett went 21 of 27 and didn’t make a turnover while leading the Indy offense to 376 yards and rallying it back from a 15-point deficit. He managed the Colts’ 16-play, 80-yard tying drive in the fourth quarter, going 4 of 5 and notably hitting Devin Funchess with a fourth-and-3 pass near midfield to keep the march alive.Brissett eventually hit T.Y. Hilton with a short pass that the receiver turned into a 19-yard touchdown with 38 seconds to play. Brissett then handed off on the successful 2-point conversion to Marlon Mack, whose 174 yards rushing were the most by an Indianapolis player in 15 years.“He was great,” Reich said of Brissett in the final drive. “He had no heartbeat. It was steady. Very poised.”But Brissett, Mack and Hilton never got back on the field. The Chargers won the overtime coin toss and drove 80 yards for a clinching touchdown.“What did we (call), heads?” Brissett said with a grin. “We wanted it to be heads. We had the momentum. And unfortunately we didn’t get another chance.”Brissett credited his cool in this high-profile start to “meditation,” saying he does it “on the bus, the bathroom, wherever I can.”The Colts had already thought long and hard about Brissett’s ability to replace one of the best quarterbacks of the past decade, and they’re even more confident they’ll be fine.Indianapolis’ plans for the franchise changed abruptly when Luck announced his retirement last month, unable to continue his comeback from a succession of injuries. The four-time Pro Bowl selection walked away and left the team to Brissett, who started 15 straight games for Indianapolis during the miserable 2017 season while Luck was out with a shoulder injury.Brissett also started two games for New England as a rookie in 2016. This loss dropped him to 5-13 as an NFL starter, but these Colts are much better than the 2017 version. His teammates are confident he’ll start adding to his win column shortly.“It’s nothing that I didn’t expect from him,” tight end Eric Ebron said. “He should have that confidence. He should have that swagger, because he played great. The cast around him made some mistakes, but we’ll continue to grow with him.”Brissett showed his own determination to win the job that’s been handed to him when he agreed to a reported two-year, $30 million deal last week to stay with the Colts. Brissett said he negotiated his own deal, which could turn out to be quite cost-effective for the Colts if Brissett remains as good as he looked Sunday.Although Brissett was determined to deflect any personal praise after a loss, he struggled to find faults in his game. He lamented his fumble when he mishandled a first-down snap in the second quarter, even though he recovered it himself.One of his prettiest throws was an incompletion: Brissett threw a beautiful fade to Funchess in the corner of the end zone with 48 seconds left, but Funchess landed out of bounds and injured himself.Brissett attempted just four passes last season behind Luck, but he jumped right back into the regular-season flow. He hit Hilton for his first TD pass since December 2017 in the second quarter.“We did (things) to ourselves to put ourselves in that situation,” Brissett said. “Toward the end, we cleaned a lot of that up Skai Moore Color Rush Jersey , and you saw the results. … Don’t get me wrong, they’re a great team, but we did it to ourselves.” A few hours after winning his third Super Bowl, Rob Gronkowski said he was in bed in tears after playing a vital role in the Patriots' 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.He couldn't enjoy it because of the pain.Gronkowski was hit in the quadriceps during the game, leaving him with the deepest bruise he had ever had in his life. He spent weeks unable to walk properly, sleeping just 20 minutes per night.His mood was volatile — one moment, he'd be feeling fine, as if he overcame the discomfort. The next moment, he'd be aching, unable to even sit down without focusing on the pain. Over the next month, he had to drain a liter of blood from his thigh.That's when he knew it was time to retire."I was like all right. This is a sign," he told The Associated Press. "I was saying to my friends that this is a goodbye present from the NFL."So he left. And he's happy he did.Several current and former players and coaches have speculated Gronkowski would return at some point. Gronkowski finds the chatter charming, rather than distracting."I embrace it. At first, I was like, 'I just retired,' and people are like, 'yo, you'll be back,'" Gronkowski said. "It just shows that they miss seeing me on the field. You got to appreciate that and understand that. Maybe they're going to try to talk it into existence."Gronkowski is still fit for game day — if not, far leaner — and he works out every morning because it "keeps (him) going, keeps (him) sane.""I could play right now if I wanted to play. Hands down," Gronkowski said.But while he's physically capable, he's not mentally or emotionally ready. Football was taking the joy out of his life. After five months of retirement, he has no immediate plans to return to the NFL — but he did leave the door open for the future."If in a few years, I'm like, 'I just need to play football,' then I will 100% go back and play football," Gronkowski said. "But, as of right now https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Jack-Mewhort-Jersey , I'm in a good place."Colts quarterback Andrew Luck surprised the football world when he announced his retirement on Saturday night at just 29 because of the physical pain, mental fatigue and emotional toll it took to keep fighting his way back from injuries.Gronkowski, who turned 30 in the offseason, said he "definitely relates to Luck" and that he's saddened by the Colts fans who booed the quarterback as he walked off the field for the final time."That's tough to see," Gronkowski said. "That shouldn't be happening. You just don't know what some of these guys are going through. ... If anything, (you) should applaud someone for noticing that they need to step away and take care of themselves."Despite his wish for fans to be more empathetic, the four-time All-Pro tight end is accepting that many fans want to see the violence and brutality that football offers."We know that we're going to go out there and can absolutely take a brutal hit at any time," Gronkowski said. "That's why we have fans. That's why the fans love watching the game. Sometimes they take it too far."Gronkowski spoke to the AP after a news conference announcing his partnership with a brand of CBD cream, for which he is a spokesman and an investor. His plan, besides making a profit, is to lobby the NFL to legalize the use of CBD, or cannabidiol, a compound derived from hemp and marijuana that doesn't cause a high, as pain relief for players."I think the NFL has great policies in place, but I'm just asking them to be open to CBD," Gronkowski said.The mental and physical anguish from his playing days are still ever-present, a constant reminder of the toll he took for his three Super Bowl rings. But as a result, he's developed a new perspective on health and fitness, one he says has reduced the pain he feels in retirement.He wants to introduce the product to everyone, including former teammate Tom Brady, whose specific health regimen Gronkowski finally comprehends a little bit better."He sprays this water on his face," Gronkowski said. "It had, like, a certain mineral in the water. I mean, I understand it now, but it was just wild to see."
