  1. Sure is a lot of talking down on a guy who is averaging 4.1ypc, against said stacked boxes. While catching 16/17 pass attempts his way. People must forget Mack averaging 3.8ypc his rookie season. Tomlinson averaged 3.6ypc his rookie year, 4.3ypc for career. Emmitt Smith 3.9ypc rookie season, 4.2ypc for his career Walter Payton 3.5ypc rookie season Curtis Martin 4.0ypc rookie year, 4.0ypc for career Jerome Bettis 3.9ypc for his career Marshall Faulk 4.1ypc rookie year, 4.3ypc for career Half of the top 12 rushers of all time ab

  2. Through six games, Rivers leads the league in big-time throws in the first half (per PFF) and is top 5 in deep throw accuracy. Why do you guys have to blame Rivers for everything.

  3. Because QB, and QB INTs are the easiest bright shiny object to go after if you're too lazy to compare vs the league, or unable to subjectively critique all aspects and context.

  4. I mean to defend Wentz have you seen the Talent he's working with it's laughable. He is trying to do to much, but if he wasn't playing hero ball I don't think they win a game. That's 6 Offensive Lineman, 1 starting RB, 2 TEs, 4 WRs Miles Sanders RB Out Andre Dillard LT Out Brandon Brooks RG Out Jason Peters OT Out Jalen Reagor WR Out (Rookie) Isaac Seumalo G Out Zach Ertz TE Out Dallas Goedert TE Out Alshon Jeffery WR Out Desean Jackson WR Out Jordan Mailata OT Out Marquise Goodwin WR Out Jack Driscoll OT Out (Rookie)

  6. Eventually, people gonna run out of names for the Let’s trade for QB (insert any QB here) from a failing team notion, right? Eason is most likely to be this teams future. Short of lightning striking, and us landing an opportunity to get Lawrence, we aren’t going to be trading for a QB, now or in the future

  8. It's more like teams started figuring out Reich's dink/dunk, and started playing tighter. After game 1, the passing attempts decreased. Rivers is #5 in deep ball accuracy, so it's not like he can't throw it downfield. We've seen him do at times, with a top 10 rate of success. If he's #5, that means he's consistent. That means it's lack of play calling. Also, you can't ignore some of the inconsistent or bad OL performances. Mack, Hicks, Garrett, and Jack were all getting good pressure, especially Garrett. As far as the running game, Taylor is a rook, is coming from a po

  9. Good stat, and it shows how good Taylor is honestly. He is still averaging over 4 yards the last 4 games per carry and 5 last week. If Rivers starts playing like last week, maybe we can finally have a balanced offense.

  10. According to Next Gen Stats "Rookie RB Jonathan Taylor has faced a stacked box on 27.27% of his carries this season. 5th most in the NFL (min 30 attempts)." Last season, Marlon Mack saw a stacked box on 12.15% of his carries. 39th in the NFL (min 85 carries). Nobody fears Rivers ability to throw the ball downfield until he proves he can do it on a consistent basis. The Bengals game was a start and Marcus Johnson will help stretch the field. People should stop pointing fingers at the offensive line and dig more deeper into why the

Listen..Ive watched quite a few Giant games and he pops to me..Reminds me of Steve Young..He is stuck on a horrible team with no line or talent..Put him with us and we are scary...I really hope they choose to go in another direction and he is available...I think its very possible if they have a top 5 pick..

  14. That's what destroyed our talent with Grigson and aside from injuries that's what has hurt the eagles since they won the Super Bowl. Sure you can go all out to try to win one Super Bowl or you can do what Ballard is doing and creating an organization that will win multiple, if you want great things patience is key.

  15. Enuff wirh the Ballard rook over a decimated team. It has been 4 years. We r heading into year 5 and he have only one winning season under his belt. I agree, Luck set his plan back. However, he needs to get the qb position settled. Rivers, to me, a one year plan. They either find out if Eason is the guy or take a bold step next year. I almost thought they should have traded their # 13 pick for more picks so they could have moved up in the 2021 qb rich draft. Ballard was intent upon getting that 3 technique to run this crap scheme. To me that is Ballard's biggest failure. His total buy in to

  17. We are neutral by not signing them. However, the Chiefs get better, the Ravens get better, and the Bucs get better. Two of those teams are in the AFC and are probably the two top teams in the conference. That's the point you are missing. They are increasing their odds of making and winning the SB while we do nothing. A similar argument is if a team didn't have a 1st round pick hypothetically and argued that they didn't get any worse and are fine. Yes, you didn't get worse, but every team with a 1st round pick just got better. The Chiefs and Ravens got better. That's my point. We re

  26. marlon did not look good his first year though . it was not until last year he started looking amazing . in 2018 he started playing better . taylor has the same ability as mack , look at his 40 time and skill set its around the same . Even last year marlon in the first half of games most of the time was not that great and by frank staying with the run it warmed marlon up to go off in the second half . It almost seems like they put taylor in he starts to get warn make a couple of good runs then is pulled and he cools off .

  27. We’re trying to figure things out without a ton of players we’ve been counting on. - Pittman - Campbell - Mack - At least one of our tight ends has missed at least one game, and in some games we’ve had two tight ends out. We are down a ton of play making talent. This enables defenses to focus on Hilton and force the Colts to beat teams with our lesser weapons. This is not as simple or as black n white as some here would have you believe.

  28. You guys really need to look at where these guys went to college (and what scheme they ran), and where they ended up. Wiscy is heavy power and a unique mix of zone and gap, and Taylor ended up in Indy who runs a lot of simple zone (with very little power/2 back sets). Totally different. OSU runs wide, and a combination of power/gap/tight-zone. Elliot went to the Cowboys who also runs wide, but uses a lot of power and even a lot of 21. What does that mean? It means Elliot went to a similar scheme and had less to learn, and also a good dose of lead blocker (power) to help. Taylor we

  29. Honestly, I like Jones, but he is not going to be the answer for this team in the future. I think he is better than he is showing on the Giants, but I don't see him as an upgrade over the Colts QB room.

  31. Perhaps. But it’s not like they shared every single intimate detail. I don’t get why you’re judging them for wanting to share their special moment? Who cares if it’s on social media. It doesn’t cheapen the moment or make them shallow. It’d be different if it were a selfie or something. Then again, it’s their moment, their choice. It’s not like it’s a sex tape or a laptop filled with porn or bribes. It’s one picture of a couple that’s been together since they were in what, junior high? That’s impressive these days. Used to be more common way back in the “old fashioned” days but not so much anym

  32. For Indy to move up I honestly don’t believe they could ever offer enough. With the Colts likely drafting no worse than 16th, no package of players and picks would ever convince a team to pass on this generation’s Elway or Luck.

  36. Yeah, I can understand that. I proposed to my wife in the Indianapolis Art Museum Gardens. I was peaceful, intimate and just the two of us. While there are no pictures of the event, we both can vividly remember everything. We had been dating for over 5 years at that point, so she knew it was coming. Instead of trying to surprise her, I decided to make it the best possible moment. Your thoughts on social media align with my own. It's honestly not real life. It's just a snapshot of things looking perfect, but it doesn't capture what is truly going on.

  37. Ertz is maybe one but for all the big ticket guys upcoming, is an aging TE really what we need to invest in? 8+ million at age 30 and it’s for 1 more year and FA in 2022. I don’t know about you but I’m kinda tired of working on the 1 year deal guys. I’d like to keep building up MAC and either Doyle or his clone Hentges maybe. Idk what the plan is for Burton but I’m not spending 3-4 mil on him either. Can’t stay on the field his whole career so far. imho, until we can solidify the longer term QB spot, whether that’s Eason or a new draft pick, I really feel we need to focus on the defe

  40. I see where you are coming from to some extent... but don't fully agree. I think if you ask just about anyone who follows football and has for a long time to name the top 3 QBs ever, both Brady and Manning will be mentioned. There are 23 QBs from the modern-era in the Pro Football HOF. Several of those guys were not the best at their position at any point in their career. Troy Aikman won multiple superbowls on absolutely loaded teams, but he was never a first or second team all-pro and was only a 6x pro-bowler (Rivers has gone to 8). Aikman never lead the league in any major pa

  41. When I think of HOF, how did the player change the game compared to his peers at the time he was playing? And IMO, Rivers has not really done anything to change the game. He's a good QB and does a good job but he does not have the yards/TDs of a Brady or Manning or Brees. He has not changed the way an offense functions nor a way a defense prepares, like Peyton, He does not have the SBs of a Eli Manning, SBs are not a huge factor, but between similar candidates it has to play a factor. He probably will get into the HOF, and while I'm glad he is a Colt, I don't think he has done a

  44. If it wasn’t done when he took over as owner it’s not going to happen now. The Irsays have made to clear the claim all the team history including the Baltimore days. I know people in Baltimore don’t like that but those guys did it for this franchise not the Ravens franchise. I also know Johnny U disowned the Colts when they moved but others like Berry still embrace the Colts in Indy.
