Unless the Indianapolis Colts swing a trade or sign a certain former 49ers quarterback, they'll be going with Jacoby Brissett to start the 2019 season. While it won't be Brissett's first stint as starting quarterback, he suddenly has a spotlight being shined on him.

Case in point: A recent screencap of Brissett's tweets and Twitter history has been going viral. From the looks of it, Brissett likes to do some deep thinking on the world around him.

One of his favorite things to tweet on is the origin of popular sayings such as "Lighting never strikes twice" or "A dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's."

Since Andrew Luck's retirement on Saturday night, the comments on his tweets have swelled in number as well.

The Colts acquired Brissett in a trade with the New England Patriots just before the start of the 2017 season.

With Andrew Luck injured that year, he became the starting quarterback in Week 2 after coming on in relief of Scott Tolzien. He finished the season with a 4-11 record while throwing for 3,098 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

But he's the man in Indianapolis until further notice, and takes over a roster that made the playoffs in 2018.

Will 2019 be a breakthrough year for Brissett?
