  1. I reckon Rivers’ 40 time is around 30s so this is apt.

  9. Thanks guys. Just found the perspective interesting. Sure the INTs concern me, but they did in 2018 as well. Not suggesting we're going to go 9-1, but every team on our schedule has shown itself vulnerable. If Luck can right the ship, no reason to believer Rivers can't play better as well down the stretch.

  13. I touched on this before. Things turned around while Luck was down 0-21 and then Frank opened it up and Luck started slinging even though we lost on a 4th down call to go down vs Texans to go 1-3 in 2018. Fast forward to 2020, once we got down 0-21 vs the Bengals, things started opening up. Frank has to stay ahead of the sticks and start calling for more passes on early downs. I hope we start using everyone on the roster that is a pass catcher and not wait on Campbell and Pittman, and when they come back it will be a bonus.

  14. Negative doesn't equate to troll though. Personally, I always try to wait till mid season to go all in on anything negative lol. There's only 3 or 4 players/coaches/issues rising up my list though. There's several on here that are hot take machines, so our credibility bar is set pretty low...

  15. No way I'd sign Darnold to anything long term. Not sure I'd even want to take a shot on him at all. Never was a big fan to start with, and on top of that, not sure he's not been "ruined" in NJ. Wouldn't mind a 2 year friendly deal, but with no expectation of him starting. I'm surprised no one has mentioned Fitzmagic. Not that I want him or anything. I find the timing of Miami's switch to be interesting. Fitz has actually played pretty well. They've lost to some decent teams, but creamed the 49ers. I think it's silly to put Tua in this early when Miami's OL is still pret

  17. Dear God, this thread is a complete dumpster fire. When it’s comes to JB people here lose their minds. Hard to see him getting traded. The Colts still need him. Hard to see him signed by another team next year to be their starter. Andy Dalton didn’t get signed as a starter and AD is a better option than JB. Cam Newton had to wait until nearly training camp to get a pitiful offer. Whether he stays or leaves, I see JB signing with some team to be their back up. A GM can’t stand up before the local media and announce the team’s new starting quarterb

  19. There's a lot of things I could mention. 1. Rivers having a covid camp and not having preseason games 2. Luck having pre-existing chemistry with guys like TY and Doyle, but added new guys like Grant and Ebron. 3. Rivers with all new skill players, including 2 rooks, and another (PC) who is basically a rook. 4. Luck missing Mack early 2018 There are a lot of obstacles for both. BTW, you're being assumptive about the Hail Mary. IIRC, Reich came out immediately that week and said it wasn't because Luck couldn't throw it. And, I mean, Brissett does hav

  20. Yup. I'm not saying we need to go pass happy, but we need good balance, and creativity from the start. I always say 1st down should be 50 pass / 50 run downs. Never let them guess what you're doing. 2nd and short is a great down and distance to take a shot downfield. 2nd and long is always a great down to shoot the edge with a RB. Bottom line, like you said, stay ahead of the sticks. The only down that should be predictable, is 3rd and short, and with our OL, we should be able to pick that up running.

  21. Not a big fan of Buca (I'm an Iaria's or Iozzon's fan). But we'd basically do the same thing capping it off with Elmo's. What we would do on the front and back end of games might change on how elaborate our tailgate was. One of my cousins used to rent out a parking lot a few blocks away from LOS, and we'd have either big pitch in cookouts, or catering. In the past, close family friends owned a bar a couple blocks away, and I had a cousin who had a restaurant 1.5 miles from LOS. Ah the good ole days.

  25. Yeah and what would have happened without Rivers Sunday? They would have gotten blown out by that team. Some people were more than happy to say he lost the Browns game last week yet don’t want to say to he won the game this week. They want to discredit the win. I was harsh on Rivers last week yet have no problem giving him his due this week. Why is that so hard? No one is saying say he’s now the best QB in the NFL or anything close. They are just saying give him credit for a good game without a back handed compliment.

  28. Oh I'm here. The Colts beat a 1-3-1 team with a rookie QB. Are we really that good/excited or are we surprised we won? Let's act like it. BTW we won by 4 points. (Didn't beat the spread) To a team with a rookie QB. That part!

  29. There is one scenario where he will be elsewhere. That is if rivers finished strong and comes back next year. Then Eason is his backup. Then Jacoby is gone. If rivers doesn’t come back there could be a pretty good chance he comes back and him and Eason fight for the starting job. Everything goes out the window though if the colts draft another QB. If they draft one high and rivers comes back then all bets are off. Next year really hinges on if rivers has a great season and comes back. Jacoby would be a good backup for Eason. Winston couldn’t even get a job.

  30. After the game vs Cleveland, on NFL network, I believe it was Charley Casserly that was reciting how well Taylor is doing running the ball vs how poor the Colts running game is when Hines or anybody else is in there (Mack excepted), and his point was he simply does not understand what the heck the Colts are doing NOT sticking with Taylor and giving the budding star all the opportunities possible. Today, again 5 ypc average, but on only 12 carries, plus 4 rec. for 55 yds. I completely agree with Casserly. I find it to be, well, just bad that Taylor is not being given a

  31. Great thread as usual @EastStreet, Luck did go 9-1 to finish the season though. Having said that I like Rivers and think we can go 10-6 again.

  32. Because JB has made it clear he wants to be a starter and get paid starter money. I highly doubt he will want to take the pay cut we would need him to to stay a backup

  33. Same system just means knowledge of the playbook and knowing the reads fast enough. It does not equate to chemistry with pass catchers.

  34. Yup. Not sure why it takes being down big in a game before Frank opens up the offense. I'm now willing to bet we see a bit more aggressiveness from Frank going forward now too as the season progresses.

  35. Luck's INTs hurt the O just as much as River's picks have hurt it now. The difference then is that TY was TY and it was easier for Luck to come back from the mistakes quickly, along with Ebron. A situation that probably was born out in the next 10 games rather than the first 6. Not sure if Rivers is going to have his TY or Ebron. I don't think anyone wants the Luck of the first 6 games of 2018.

  37. By comparison to Helaire... Halaire 81-344 Average 4.3 First Downs 14 Taylor 89-367 Average 4.1 First Downs 22 Taylor is quietly putting up good numbers having to carry a bigger load due to poorer QB plan (Mahomes vs. Rivers)

  40. I see quite a few people irked about how little we used Taylor and I totally understand where that is coming from. That said... I think showing we can air it out and win was equally as big a deal is it would have been to give Taylor more of the workshare. Before Cincy our passing games was just not getting it done. This, I hope, gives our passing game life that we can carry into this upcoming difficult stretch. I really hope we can get Pittman back and involved too.

  41. I hear ya @Four2itus, it's like some of these people just live to complain, no matter what. And it's the usual suspects like @Moosejawcolt, @Thunderbolt, @JPFolks, @coming on strong, etc. They think they know better than actual football professionals, and it's like they can't just enjoy the game of football unless it goes exactly the way they want it to... We're fans. We're not players. We're not coaches. We're not the GM. We're not the owner. But the way some people post, it's like they think they're all of the above and a bag of chips! But it's whatever. I rememb

  42. The more he plays the better he gets and the more he taxes the opposing defense. We just don’t take advantage of that. He’s JAG in our offense. He isn’t as important to our offense as any of the top RBs in the league are to theirs. And that may be something that is actually holding us back. I absolutely abhor the way Reich uses our RBs. Terrible management. There’s no reason Taylor shouldn’t get 80+% of the carries on offense. None. Wilkins should only see the field once a game unless he’s in there WITH Taylor. Hines should get no more than 20% of the carries in a game.

  43. I honestly think the defense's biggest struggles were when the offense couldn't sustain drives and they were constantly on the field. Hopefully with Rivers at the helm, that won't be an issue and the defense will be able to put out consistent high level performances.
