    This, roll with Wentz??  Colts will want Rivers back because the Pats have no qbs and Belly might want Phil

    No to Wentz. Hell no. 


    It's no coincidence the team wins a SB with Foles. And are a Jeffery drop away from upsetting New Orleans. Only to trade Foles, and start Wentz. They've gone backwards ever since.


    And he's injury prone.


    Say what you want about old man Rivers. But at least he's durable.


    Also not sure why the Patriots would want Rivers. They need a full rebuild of their roster.

    Reid has won different COY awards 4 different years and has a long history of great play calling.


    The comparison isn't a comparison.


    Ding ding ding.


    McNabb owes his success to Reid. Yet Reid is vilified in Philly for not winning a championship. Hell it's a miracle some of his teams got to the championship game. And it's a miracle the Eagles had a chance at beating the Patriots in SB 39. Those Patriots teams were loaded.


    Alex Smith's success is because of Reid too. Those Chiefs teams with Smith had no business being as good as they were.


    Long story short, we are in agreement.

    Yeah i am. And you're talking of Reid AFTER he got Mahomes. Give Reich even Luck and watch magic happen. 

    You forget the level of complaints Reid used to generate when his QBs where McNabb and Alex Smith. Suddenly he has Mahomes and even iffy play calls are hailed as genius now. 

    Yeah i am comparing them. Reich makes some mistakes in-game but i am so glad he's the Colts HC. 

    Reid has always been a great coach though. He made McNabb better than he was. Look what he did with Alex Smith. Reid's issues were always clock management.


    Reich shouldn't be compared to Reid. Just like Reid shouldn't be compared to--and I hate to say it Colts fans because we despise him--Belichick


    Mahomes needs Reid just as much as Reid needs Mahomes.

    Yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of Jim Caldwell helping the Jets beat us in Peyton Manning’s final game of his Colts career...

    We could've won the SB that year too.

    Caldwell should've been gassed after that game. And he got taken to the cleaners by Payton in the SB.

    Call me crazy but some of these aggressive/risky calls may win us a Super Bowl one day.  

    I do wish he took the points though!

    Sure. If you get a SB defense sans Butler like Philly got vs Pats, you take chances.


    You don't take unnecessary risks against the best defense in football. There wasn't any need too.

    Sure, the question of the alternative is challenging. But I would prefer a younger and more mobile qb. 


    I don't think you should stick with a 38 year old qb whos play is clearly declining and you know tjat he won't be good enough to win it all. 

    I would rather take a shot at a younger qb. If hes not good enough, ok.... Move on.... nothing lost:headspin:

    I agree. I was just wondering if anyone could offer names.


    Personally I'm in favor of starting Eason next year. Or drafting a QB this year. If we suck next year at least we know who the answer isn't.


    No band aids like 28-3 Ryan or Stafford. No Brissett.


    We know these guys. They are what they are. All are either old, limited, or just meh.


    I don't want to be stuck in the middle. That team that might contend for a postseason spot. But doesn't have a legit SB shot. And is drafting in the middle.

  7. No to Stafford & Ryan type QB's. And no to Brissett. We know what these guys are. They aren't terrible. But they aren't game changers.


    I want us to either draft a QB or start Eason next season. Worst case scenario is Eason sucks and we draft high in 2022.

    Move on.


    There will be some good options available..

    Stafford, Darnold, Rodgers, Trubisky, who knows what teams might do.

    Rodgers? Why on earth would GB trade the league MVP? He's been durable the past few years. And an elite QB. He's only 37. I could see him playing into his 40's like Brees and Brady.

    I don't think, that PR was the factor that brought us to the playoffs. He played well, but was not an deciding x-factor. Our playoff appearance was a result of our balanced, well rounded team.

    I think we would have been in the playoffs with 25 other starting qbs of the nfl. 

    He should retire, or at least we shouldn't bring him back, because with him we are not able to win it all. Not that he is a bad qb. But simply not good enough any more. 

    Question is. Who is the alternative?


    We were spoiled by great QB play for like 20 years.


    Now we are seeing what it's like to be most other franchises without a QB.

    I like Philip Rivers but if other better QBs become available like Dak or Stafford they have to pull the trigger.

    For sure.


    Dak is underrated. I think he's capable of being a SB caliber QB.

    Rivers no Turnovers, 309 Yards, 2 TD's. We gave this game away. I haven't been this disappointed since losing the SB in 2009. We had them beat, I am sick right now.

    That 2009 SB crushed me. Everyone says the turning point was the onside kick (Hank Baskett I hate you btw). But to me it was when we were up 10-3. Manning throws a 3rd down laser to Garson that is dropped. He catches that and he's on his way to the end zone. 17-3 Colts. I had a sinking feeling after that play.


    This one doesn't hurt as bad as the SB or the Jets game. But it's close. The Buffalo Bills did not beat the Colts today. Nor are they that much better than us. The Colts beat the Colts. And that's the sickening part.

    You wouldn't mind resigning a 37-38 year old QB that can't throw a 40 yard hail mary? I'm convinced the only reason they didnt bring Brisett in was to not embarass Rivers in his last game. 


    Brisett should've been in for the hail mary imo.


    I'd mind a near 40 year old being the starter next year.


    If it means we draft a guy with potential, but take a step back, so be it.

  13. Look at Philly since Reich left. He played a huge role in them winning a SB. He just needs to stop gambling as much. Take the game as it comes. I do think he can be an elite coach.


    Rivers is done. We must find a QB of the future. Easier said than done though.


    Would Irsay make a call to Luck to see about possibly returning?

    They add young pieces via draft and sign a free agent QB and they have escaped years of rebuild....some team will give them something it wont be us and it def wont be 3 first rounders bet your bottom dollar on that.


    I wonder if Minnesota or Chicago would give up what it takes to get him.


    Him on Chicago = immediate SB contender.


    And you are correct. It won’t be us.

    They sign a free agent to fill Watson's shoes and use all the draft capital to fix holes, we will not give a division rival in trouble an avenue to escape...ever

    Watson is NOT Mahomes



    They add pieces but have no QB.


    For us? I'm still undecided if I'd pull the trigger.


    And Mahomes is in a class of his own. The Brady, Mahomes, and Mannings come around once in a generation. I doubt many QB's reach those heights.

  16. Just now, holeymoley99 said:

    Jets would do it though, look what the gave for Darnold some club got Q Nelson and Braden Smith and K. Turay and Jordan Wilkins and Rock Ya Sin....lesson...Dont be the Jets

    Christ that looks really bad in hindsight.


    But I'm not convinced Darnold is done. He plays for the worst organization in pro sports.


    I think he can absolutely flourish elsewhere.


    Minnesota, Indy, Vegas, New Orleans, and Chicago.
