  1. I think he comes back. 

     

    Hilton was never going to be all that productive with Rivers as his QB, he doesn't have the arm strength or velocity to take advantage of Hilton's skillset.

     

    I'd bring him back, sign someone else and maybe hope that Campbell can stay healthy. He's been very injury riddled but can be useful IF and only IF he can stay healthy for a whole season.

    I agree with u on Rivers arm. His lack of mobility and arm strength limits what the offence can do. Defences dont respect him going deep so they crowd the line. Now get Stafford and that would change. I am all for drafting the future next year or going with Eason. May take a step  back but I beleive we r only dealing the inevitable. Its like a band aid with Rivers. Time to tear it off and fast

     

    I was thinking about Stafford too. I like the good parts about him but I'm just not sure if we could depend on him to win big games. It seems like throughout his Lion career he hasn't really done much in big moments, even with players like Megatron. I know his teams weren't always the best but I'd hate for him to come here and throw away games.

    I understand your sentiments, but....

     

    Andrew Luck sure played great against the Chiefs. 

    Luck laid an absolute egg against the Chiefs, I admit that. Still, I have faith that Luck was capable of having better games against them, especially with having a team of this caliber around him.

  3. Rivers was trash yesterday. Yeah his statline is cool but if you were watching the game, you saw that he routinely threw passes behind WRs and overthrew Pittman in the endzone. His arm is done, I flat out DO NOT want him back next season.

     

    JT was a disappointment, then again I don't know why Hines is still underplayed. Hines should be taking the screen passes and checking down, JT is our grinder between the tackles. JT had a couple bad drops but Hines should have been there to begin with.

     

    Reich coached a bad game. Going for it on 4th down like it's Madden and blowing TOs on dumb challenges are two things you should not be doing in the playoffs. I like Reich as a coach but he needs to quit with the boneheaded game plan, ALWAYS take the points unless you absolutely need a TD.

     

    We lost to the Bills, who are a good team, but we definitely could have won. Ultimately, I  don't care because I never saw us going far with old man Rivers. When we get a good QB we will go far. Until then, meh.

     

    P.S. I miss you Andrew Luck

    Really? So every head coach in the league has a QB who either gets wins or don't.

    The QB does not do anything without a team around him. 

    If it has to be explained to you about team depth and the talent level drop off  then I suggest taking a course in football 101. 

    All you want to do at this point is argue. No thanks, there is nothing more to say that hasn't already been said too many times. 

    Nope. Stop posting nonsense. Pagano has admitted that Luck is more responsible for wins than himself during his tenure. That's the bottom line.

    If that is what you think I did you didn't comprehend what I did say. 

    Pagano was not the kind of head coach who pointed fingers or threw his players under the bus. How much more plainer can it be said? 

    You cant spin away from the fact that Pagano has gone on record to say Luck was more so responsible for the Colts success under him. How much more plainer can that be said?

    Pagano always took the blame for his players. That is why every player that played for him loved the guy. He has never made excuses or threw one of his players under the bus.

    Like I said- His game adjustments were hampered by the lack of talent. 

    What you are failing to realise is that Pagano was a first time head coach when he joined the Colts. He still didn't have a losing record and was not even close to being as bad as most think in this forum. Just because the fans want a scrape goat does not mean he deserved being one. 

    You’re literally arguing against Paganos own words.

    I do not agree. The three 11-5 starts prove that. Advancing deeper into the playoffs each of those three years also shows that.

    Fans blaming the head coach for losses is real easy without looking at why things happen. 

     

    Pagano himself disagrees with your post.

    Pagano sucked at in game adjustments, motivation and game planning. I wouldn't say he is the worst coach ever but he provided minimal value to the team, although Grigson significantly hampered his ceiling with this team.

  8. Yes and no.

     

     

    The losses versus Houston and Tenn were very bad, our health played a very big part in that. We would have gotten massacred against anybody in the playoffs had we made it. Now if Brissett played well consistently I’d say we had a chance to go on a run like the Titans, but with him stinking the place up and our secondary being decimated, along with losing Turay, allows me to believe otherwise.

    I agree having a duel threat at QB helps but how long can they stay healthy running a lot besides throwing. So far Wilson has stayed healthy but look at guys like Cam and RG3. If Lamar can stay healthy for the next 3 or 4 years playing his style than he would've beat the odds. I am sure the Ravens will take it. Even our own Andrew Luck paid the price by taking off and running too much. 

    I believe our coaching staff would be the difference here. Cam and RG3 both suffered from bad coaching. Andrew Luck is the biggest example of a coaching staff failing a player that I have ever seen. He didn’t really pay the price of running too much as much as he did of running for his life. 
     

    Our current coaching staff is light years ahead of the Grigson/Pagano days, I think they are capable of maximizing the talent of whoever is at QB.

    That I can live with it’s mostly the Grigson part I disagreed with.  He made several moves that set this team back for years.  This hurt this year and that’s it.  All GMs have moves like that.

    I have a feeling that's the part that most posters here disagreed with, and I understand why.

     

    Grigson to Colts fans is like Voldemort to Harry Potter.
