He remains his own harshest critic.
"I think that's kind of my problem some times," said Brissett, laughing.
"He is so hard on himself," said Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren. "He plays hard, and he plays so well. He commands the offense. He wants to score every time they are out there, and he has got a great way about him."
NC State held the second scrimmage of spring practice on Monday and Brissett believes they made improvements from the first scrimmage.
"It was a big difference," he said. "We were able to install more, put more things in. We came out with the right mentality. All we have to do is make plays now."
No stats were given from Monday's scrimmage, but according to Doeren and Brissett both the offense and defense won their share of battles.
"We came out very fast," said Brissett. "We scored on the first drive. We kind of fell off for a little while... just some things to correct and get better at.
"[The defense was] real good. We just have to come back and beat them on Wednesday."
"I saw some good runs and excellent catches," added Doeren. "I thought defensively we did some good things.
"There weren't many big plays. We held them to two field goals, one touchdown and one stop in the red zone, which is pretty good."
Already named the starting quarterback, Brissett has stepped up as a leader.
"He is very positive, enthusiastic and encouraging to his teammates," said Doeren. "And he has good command of what's going on, he knows how to get people where they're supposed to go."
A transfer from Florida, Brissett admits that he's pleased to be in Raleigh playing for the Wolfpack.
"I love it," he said. "The weather is nice. Back in Gainesville it's probably 105 today. Everything is good. I'm playing now, so it's different.
"There is no better place to be right now than here. The sky is the limit."
