  1. I dont want to pull receipts. ANd btw you are a new member. Have you seen the last play of the playoffs? RIvers couldnt throw 50 yards to save his life, nor the Colts life. The ball landed at roughly the 6 yard line when the line of scrimmage was approx 47 yard line (Colts side of feild). BTW The Colts paid Rivers $25 Million for that. Compared to JB's $16 Mill. Before the snap, Charles Davis (Commentator) says "What will the Colts do. Typically it has been Brissett to throw deep balls". Even the commentator knows this info, so you know opposing teams know this info. ANd you say RIvers was decent? your expectations are on the floor. Pick it up because opposing teams dont give a darn about Philip Rivers.
  2. Huh? 2020: 3-8-1 record | 57% comp | 16 TD | 15 INT | 49.6 QBR (Wentz) I wouldn't expect the Superbowl Either. By the way, please dont get those numbers confused, as they were produced not by JB but Wentz. Do you get it now? The guy who you are jacked about... Those are this numbers. Dont put on the blinders now. Those numbers are worse than JB as a starting QB. Thats what the "Huh" is... Carson Wentz. Not Palmer
  3. Wait a min. You thought the Colts played well last year? And you dont have your expectation of Superbowl every year? You know what you are right. Because if the Colts only made it to 2 Superbowls with arguably the GOAT Peyton Manning, then I guess we shouldnt expect a superbowl anytime soon, if we go by your method/example... But hey, KC Chiefs, Buffalo, Ravens even the Browns will be looking toward the Superbowl every year. Enjoy your AFC South Divisional Banner "IF" you actually win that. with numbers like: 2020: 3-8-1 record | 57% comp | 16 TD | 15 INT | 49.6 QBR (Wentz) I wouldn't expect the Superbowl Either. By the way, please dont get those numbers confused, as they were produced not by JB but Wentz. Hurray JB!
  4. Dont like it. This reminds me of when the Colts signed Philip Rivers. "Oh RIvers had worked with Coach Frank in the past". So is that a good thing? what was their results in the end, both at Chargers and Colts? Oh and the year Carson and the Eagles made it to the Superbowl, Carson was actually injured. Meaning he didnt even play in the Superbowl nor the playoffs. Just some facts. thats all. Furthermore, Carson has looked like trash including last season. 2020: 3-8-1 record | 57% comp | 16 TD | 15 INT | 49.6 QBR (Wentz) And this is the numbers for Caron Wentz and this fan base erupts with joy over this?? 2019: 7-9 record | 60.8% comp | 18 TD | 6 INT | 88 QBR (Brissett) I feel bad for JB. Should have left the Colts high and dry just like Luck did. Maybe then once they called JB names or condemn him for not being a "Locker room guy" , "Team First" kind guy would be warranted. Because replacing JB with Wentz is asinine.
  5. Scramble = Buy time. Just because your can scramble (Brees, TB12, Rodgers) doesn't mean you are mobile (Josh Allan, Lamar, Jackson, Watson). Scramble is the key word. Better yet, because I know people like you love to fact check with lose arguments, here is the definition of scramble "make one's way quickly or awkwardly up a steep slope or over rough ground by using one's hands as well as one's feet." In other words, the opposite of RIvers. Try again.
  6. Or you can save your breathe and keep scrolling... I can post whatever I choose. If you cant explain your laziness...keep scrolling. No need to spam. Football Only. I wrote 2 paragraphs worth of football for you to complain about. lazy. "Dear God". I see. Oh where is your team again???
  7. I) You took the opportunity to state your qualifications as an FBI investigator. What else have you uncovered? I'm here for football, not conspiracies, or "let's pull up the history on xyz". "Oh you see here. He's xyz". Complete waste of time. 2) Mojority wanted Vinny gone? I dont think you know this forum. Because when I said Vinny was overdue, 99/100 came against that statement. 3) It sounds like you are making excuses for RIvers. The Colts put up 24 points against the Bills. DId you want the Colts defense to hold the Bills to under 24 pioints? Please answer... Josh Allan and that Offensive system that put up 50 points a week prior against the Dolphins. Did you want the Colts defense to Hold the Bills to under 24 points? And did you think going into the game that the Colts could hold the Bills to under 24 points? PLEASE ANSWER Better yet, did you think the Colts could beat any playoff team scoring 24 points? "Oh it's not Rivers fault its the System"? So why was Brissett called upon multiple times throughout the season to throw 50 yards, convert 4th and short? And the last play off the season showed YOU why. Rivers couldn't throw a 50 yard hail mary as a starting NFL QB! Maybe the System wasn't the problem.. Maybe it was Rivers. I mean he was getting $25 mill. Last year when I said let's get Clowney. Many fans said Clowney wasnt worth his asking price. So I ask you, was Rivers worth his Asking price? 2 questions for ya! lol
  8. One thing I've noticed in my few years of reading Colts forums. Indiana fans always know or except losing a whole lot more over winning. (kanye shrug).. Like, I'd rather Adam Vinny stay with the Colts an extra year in hopes to break a record, than to have an adequate kicker. Or, "I'd rather have Carson Wentz" (Which will require draft picks) over Brissett, or Teddy Bridgewater (When he was a Free Agent. Decided to go with Rivers), or LAMAR JACKSON "He doesn't fit our system" lol. Well your system resulted in a quick playoff exit. This is the kinda stuff I read. And Yes, I'll say it for you. I vouched for Newton at ~ $1 Mill > Rivers at $25 Mill. Why? I knew that with Rivers, the Colts had no better chance at going deep into the playoffs over Newton. Oh, and if money wasn't an issue, then the Colts should have won TB12. No matter how much many on here hate him. You want a ring or nah? like, they rather go down losing a certain way than to win. i dont know man lol. This.
  9. I know CB is watching. And he's looking at the competition. Not interested in Divisional Banners, first round playoff exits, etc. He's looking at key players at key positions. And how the opposing team is made up. QB Play: You have to have a QB that can at a minimum scramble. Once Defenses blitz and create pressure, resulting in the QB having to step up or throw off schedule, you have to be able to buy time. If not, bad results. By the end of the 3rd Quarter, one thing I noticed that is strikingly different from the Colts team (Both KC and TB considered), there hasn't been any bad coaching calls, timeouts, or just overall game management. Sure, one team's game plan is going to beat another team's game plan, but bonehead calls, formations and most importantly BAD COACHING DECISIONS is not apparent. Special Teams: You have to have solid Punting and Kicking. KC punter has been atrocious. Their Kicker has been solid. Oline: You always need quality backup olinemen. KC came into the game down 2 starters (LT, and RG). This is definitely revealing itself as a weakness as the game continues into the 4th quarter. TB on the other hand has ex Colt Joe Haeg playing in his first Superbowl. TB's oline has been able to contain KC's Chris Jones while still creating holes for the running back (USC's Ronald Jones, and Leonard Fornette of LSU). Defense: Pressure, Pressure, Pressure. TB has been creating havoc against KC's oline. Mahomes has been off scheduled, and throwing off balance all game. GREAT job by Todd Bowles, and TB's front 7. Especially Shaq Barrett, JPP, and Suh. RB: Both team are having excellent RB play. WR/TE: Hello and Congratulations to Antonio Brown of Miami, FL. He's had a long road and has performed well with at least 1 TD. Gronk has 2 TDs and is a mis-match for KCs defense. Score 31-9 4th Quarter 8:20, TB driving with a 3 and out. One thing I've noticed is that Mahomes is on the sidelines and KCs defense has been terrible. The honey badger has been rattled by the great Tom Brady and Byron Leftwich's offense. All in all, TB's coaching staff Bruce Arians, Byron Leftwich and Todd Bowles out game planned Andy Reid and the Chiefs. If there is one thing to take away from the Superbowl where the Colts can learn from is, no matter who the Colts pick up in the Draft or Free Agency, you cannot compound holes/ bad situations with erratic coaching. Once again, one team's game plan will beat another team's game plan but untimely timeouts, untimely penalties, will kill your scoring drives. No matter who the QB is. And the Colts didn't even have Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady to bail them out of bad situations. Oh and the halftime show was Great by The Weeknd.
  10. I guess going with the coach's option of Philip Rivers has all of us watching Tom Brady in the Superbowl.
  11. Im glad to know that Irsay thought the Buckner trade was a W for the team.
  12. 2 things stud out to me, that I know "fans" would have called me outlandish things for. BUT, im happy it came from the "horses mouth". 1) TB12, Jim Irsay stated that the team "considered" TB12 BUT, Frank Riecht thought because of his prior relationship w/ Rivers (SMH) that Rivers was the best option. (SMH) 2) Areas of improvement: Jim stated on offense, a special/great TE and WR. He made reference of KC Kelce and WR Hill. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I will address the 2nd statement. IF the colts want a standout TE, a position that I've been critical of for years and wanted to make known as a position of improvement (This chat crushed over Jackie Doyle as if he's some kinda Kelce or David Njoku) they should consider the TE from FLA Kyle Pitts. (Colts fan base): There's no way Pitts will be available. Me: Before the end of the NFL season, the OT from Oregon (Penai Sewell) was considered a Top 2 pick. Now he is being mocked outside Top 6-7. And Penai is considered the best/safe OT since the likes of Joe Thomas, Tyron Smith.
  13. First off, TB12, Aaron Rodgers can scramble in the pocket (step up, shugg off a defender) aka keeping the play alive. something that Rivers cant do. Secondly, Have you watched the Jim Irsay presser? https://www.colts.com/video/jim-irsay-quarterback-situation-covid-19-offseason-outlook-2020-2021-season 2 things stud out to me, that I know "fans" would have called me outlandish things for.

  14. DC Eberflus not landing a HC gig is the best thing that could have happened to this team after the Bills game. This defense is as good (statistically) as it has ever been. Considering this is his what 3rd year with the defense. in 2017, Eberflus immediately turned the defense around in just one season to rank No. 10 in scoring defense (21.5 points allowed per game) and No. 11 in total defense (339.4 yards allowed per game) in 2018. Impressively, he did so without major personnel changes, as seven of the team's 11 defensive starters were with the club last season. I say add more pieces for DC Eberflus. Just as we did this year (2020) with DT Buckner.
  15. You cant say that here. They will boo you for the truth. Once it's ugly head is shown, this fan base will just say run it back lol. As we have just seen TB vs GB (NFC) 31-26 , now Bills vs Chiefs (AFC). This fan base believes that Rivers wasnt the problem when we only scored 24 points against the Bills. What you wanted the defense to hold the likes of Bills/GB/TB/Chiefs to under 24 points? Mahomes and Tom Brady to under 24 points because the road to the Superbowl will go them them. We need young fire power if not TB12, AR, Brees, etc to win deep into the Playoffs. Not RIvers who cant throw a Hail mary from the 47 yard line into the endzone (ball landed at the 6 yardline, Bills game). Nor who could scramble inside or outside the pocket. These are facts which will get you killed by playoff teams.
  16. Texans starting QB is ranked as a top 5 QB in the NFL. 2020 stats Deshaun Watson Phillip Rivers Josh Allen Comp | Yds | Y/A | TD | Int Comp | Yds | Y/A | TD | Int Comp | Yds | Y/A | TD | Int 70.2% 4823 8.9 33 7 68.0% 4169 7.7 24 11 69.2% 4544 7.9 37 10 He is a mobile, accurate strong armed QB. And in order to beat playoff teams (Chefs, Ravens, Biils, Bills, etc) you need a QB who can scramble when needed, and isn't so easily to game plan against if you need to sub a QB in for short yardage and long yardage plays. long story short, see Josh Allen for example. The only difference is that Watson has been playing at a high level and in big games since college.
  17. That was from Dan Dachich. 1080thefan (YouTube). From Miami, is ME. lol lol but none of that matters. Just point out or argue the football stuff. which you couldn't then and cannot do now. Just say i was right bro. or "Eat crow" as you commonly say...
  18. But dont worry, Let me show you how you want to call foul now, when all along you were anti what I said then and still am now lol. Rackeen305 replied to danlhart87's topic in Colts Football Im talking to everyone who believe that this loss is't a big deal. Guys this team nearly lost against the Bengals. If it wasn't for special team and timely INTs from our Defense, this team would have loss to the Bengals. Lets not act lost. Then the Ravens, Half time score: 10 - 7. Final score 10 - 24. We didn't score not 1 point in the 3rd or 4th Quarter. If you guys are still saying it doesn't matter, the I know that the expectations are low and the writing... November 29 Rackeen305 replied to danlhart87's topic in Colts Football I blame the lost on lip because when we win (see the Bengals game and a few others) you give Rivers the credit when it's actually been special teams, and defense. It sounds like you have an excuse for the lost. Rivers was 24/42 1 TD, 1 INT. and almost had 2 INTs. Did you give JB excuses last year once we lost to the STEELERS when he got hurt in that game after been stepped on by Big Q? ok then. NO EXCUSES for Rivers. He's a HOFer isnt he?? November 29
  19. But have I not been saying my point since before the season started yes/no? therefore not be mad that I called it.
  20. If any team gets a player that helps take the team deep into the playoffs. That said player is worth it. 1) If your deep into the playoffs (AFC Champ game) you are picking at the bottom of the first round. 2) You aren't guaranteed that your 1st rounder will produce as the player traded for either.
  21. The Bottom line is, Rivers showed on the final play that he cant throw 47 yards into the endzone. And he's stiff as a rock. Not gonna win much NFL games with how the game is played now a days. Dont be mad. Improve the QB position so that this team can make a deep playoff push.
  22. Do you believe Rivers is anything as his former years? Even at that level he couldn't get it done. Stop wasting young player years. You need to elevate the QB position. Josh Allen is young and isn't going anywhere.
