  1. Yesterday was a really sad day for me (as you can see by my picture). I wanted to read what many of my Colt's friends were thinking and it's pretty much as I expected, mixed, leaning towards no. However, as a very realistic observer and long time fan, I think Philip has another 2 years in him. Last year was another anomaly year in his career rather than a falling off the cliff. The last season that he had so many interceptions we had so many O Line injuries that we had 20+ different configurations over the season, AND Rivers was playing very hurt with a tough rib injury.

  2. I agree the Bears would probably be about the best fit. LAC would fit to an extent as it has a strong Poly culture and the fan base might be able to get behind him. Nobody really sees Rivers as a long term fit. He'd just be a bridge/mentor for a few years. JB isn't bad enough, and most QBs would not be bad enough, to put us into a position to get Lawrence or Fields. The surrounding cast is too good to really tank that bad.

  3. I like it. It says you're not going to throw away 2020. There's no reason why Rivers can't hand the ball off for 4 quarters like Brissett did. He might also, however, be able to push it down the field occasionally and make a play or two in the 4th quarter.

  4. I think he does. The other option is Brissett and we’ve already gone down that road. The Colts have a much better running game and offensive line to protect him. Colts also have a coaching staff that will undoubtedly adapt to where he’s at in his career.

  5. WRs, more than any other position, can come out of nowhere. Don't get me wrong, I'd love a first round stud, but right now we have other priorities. I do like Fountain's measureables, but he was very raw. He looked to have polished things up quite a bit in preseason (he spent a lot of time with trainers). His route running was noticeably improved. Again, not saying he's going to be a stud. But he does have the physical traits to be very good. Winning the MVP at the Senior Bowl wasn't a fluke IMO. At worst, I think he'd be a great back up for TY and Campbell in the Z/Slot space. Not

  6. My point on logic is that one has been on the nfl team and one has played in college. Both still have potential but one has actually demonstrated what he can do against nfl level play while the other has played in college and didn’t kill it by any means, and I’m a ND fan. I won’t be upset if we get Claypool but let’s not pretend that a college kid is automatically going to come in and overtake anyone on the team currently. That’s my logic.

  7. On Kaep, not pinning anything on him. Those were his records. Clear regression. On FA QBs... If you added JB to the list of FA QBs names, JB would be one of the least in demand, so I don't see any FA QBs who be worse than JB. By the way, the only FA that I'd really be happy with as a mid/long term add, is Carr. Even then, I'd prefer to draft a rook, and bring in an elder mentor that's been successful to teach him for a short term 2 year contract.

  8. PJ Walker did get the XFL Star player of the week! I think his style of play works real well in the XFL, but no sure he would do as well with the NFL. I know he's shorter than 6' and I think a QB needs to be 6'2" or taller. I do see some other players with Indiana ties too, Reece Horn that went to Cathedral and U of I college.

  9. its not about the rules but from what i watched, qbs that can run are the ones that did well. this wont be a high flying passing league imo it will be a running league where they throw for like 220 a game i dont expect huge rushing yards from qbs but they were on the move a lot, not really sitting in the pocket. there were also more scripted qb runs than you see in the nfl

  11. A "shot" arm throwing for 4600+ yards on 66% completion behind the 5th worst pass blocking O-line is much better than Brissett throwing for 2900+ yards on 60% completion behind the 2nd best pass blocking O-line.

  12. how does the xfl favor running QBs basically same exact rules . just the play clock clock is shorter and kick offs are different .

  13. Lol. Yeah let’s go get Claypool, we can bank on a rookie in the 3rd round instead of a guy that was highly praised prior to his injury and has now been in our system for 2 seasons. Solid logic. And I’d highly doubt he gets “stashed” on the PS squad again. Sometimes I question the logic in posters around here. Now maybe if the kid can’t play during the PS and therefore shows no tape, maybe he could be squaded. im high on Fountains 3rd season status and feel he will be a player for us.

  15. Not that we owe Jacoby anything (other than some of the obvious contract money), but if we give rookie QBs 3 years to typically show us what they got, we can at least upgrade the talent around Jacoby and give him his first true year where he will know he is the #1 QB in the off season. BUT if we feel the talent assembled around Jacoby will continue to underachieve based on what we have seen out of Jacoby so far, we do have the cap room to add talent AND get a vet starter, IMO, should we decide to do so. They just cannot have two minds about it, Frank Reich and Chris Ballard. Either

  17. I've never been high on McMillan - his offensive schemes and rotations are suspect. I've always thought Frank Vogel was the guy to win championships with the Pacers. It upset me that Larry Bird wanted to go with "another voice".

  18. the XFL favors running QBs over pocket passers, i think he just fits in better there

  19. I'm not going to act like his offensive line wasn't bad, but quarterbacks can mask that to an extent by being able to maneuver in the pocket and actually sensing pressure. Our offensive line isn't perfect, and the fact that every time there is pressure I would have to hope Rivers doesn't throw it into triple coverage doesn't sit well with me. Don't know where you are seeing "late read deep throws". He throws the ball down the field when there is one-on-one coverage that he sees before the play, which is the greatest advantage he has over Jacoby (football IQ). However,

  20. Most thought TY was low dollar talent picked late in the 3rd round. 4x Pro Bowl. Not saying Fountain is going to be great, but it's far to early to judge.

  21. It is because his Line stunk. He forced throws late in games because he had guys in his face. I seen a few LA games this year.

  22. Can't stand Jacoby? I don't disagree but you don't jump from the frying pan into the fire ya know. There're not really a lot of enticing names out there. Much like pass rushers, good QBs rarely hit the open market. They're usually either old and washed or a dicey gamble (like Peyton was for the Broncos). Maybe Kaepernick?

  23. 38 isn't really that old anymore when you look at guys like Brees and Brady playing into their 40's. Rivers IMO can play 2 more years with a great O.Line that we have. In LA he had no time to throw.

  24. he was drafted in 2017 he is good better then brain check down hoyer. rather resign him and have him and chad kelly battle it out for the number 2 spot . we have 3 QBs now i rather have walker as the 3rd QB over hoyer who has been in the league for 10 years and is horrible . at least walker is 24 and can improve hoyer is at his peak and is horrible .

  25. Why did I watch there games when I laughed and mocked the idea of this league? Can't say but I enjoyed all the games and especially Houston beating LA. Hope it survives.

  26. That he is 10,000 X smarter than you. 1. rookie 2. showed immense talent until the injury 3. cheap 4. he has all the tools you want in today’s nfl. why would YOU not sign him?

  27. He did. I vividly remember his wide open dropped pass in the endzone. Aside from that it's been pretty forgettable though, so I don't fault them too much for not knowing, haha.

  36. Don't put me down as a 'no', put me down as a 'please no.' Arm is shot, zero mobility (possibly negative speed) and couldn't win big in his prime loaded with talent. I'd rather play the cards we have at the moment.

  37. Logical by what standards? The Rivers of last season isn't better than Brissett.
