  2. Perhaps mental toughness is the wrong choice of words but he just does not impress me as a QB or as a team leader. I am curious about when Andrew Luck had a terrible season. He did have a season where he only played 7 games but it wasn't terrible. If you look at Wentz's completion percentage for his career it is lower than Rivers and his yards per completion is lower as well. I think it would be wise to avoid Wentz. I think he had one great year but my preference would be to let Rivers have a full off season and training camp with his teammates and see what he does in 2021.
  3. I personally am not a fan of Wentz. I would rather keep Rivers. I just don't think that Wentz has mental toughness needed to be a franchise QB. I don't think he will be available anyway. The cap hit that the Eagles will take is too huge for them to get rid of him. I think like it or not Wentz is going to be an Eagle for the forseeable future.
  4. I really do not understand why we would want to get rid of Rivers. His stats are very comparable to Andrew Luck's in his final year with the team. If my memory serves me correctly no one was calling for the Colts to dump Luck after the 2018 season. Now Luck did throw for more touchdowns that Rivers but he also had almost 100 more attempts. We are more balanced now than we were then and Rivers still averaged more yds/completion than Luckand had more plays of 20+yds than Andrew. Just because Philip didn't throw for 5,000 yds and 40 td's doesn't mean he is a bum. I would much rather take my chanc
  5. Things like this are like a punch in the gut. It is also a good reminder that at the end of the day all of the men that put on the Shoe are just that men. They are like you and like me. They have families and lives outside of football. God bless you Rigo. You are definitely in our thoughts and prayers.
  6. Doing what we drafted him to do! Great game tonight. Hopefully he continues to build on it. The kid looked good tonight!
  7. Great win tonight. Let's take the extra couple of days to rest and tighten things up just a bit. We are in a good spot. Hopefully we are even better next week!
  8. The NFL has known all along that there would be positive tests. I heard on the radio the other day (still trying to confirm it though) that the NFL had all of their hotels reserved in Tampa through the 1st week in March to give them the flexibility to move the date of the Super Bowl if necessary. I will be utterly shocked if the NFL and the NFLPA cancelled the season. There is just simply too much money at stake (especially for the players) if they don't play the games. Right now we don't who has tested positive either. It could be the janitor who cleans the offices and a couple of people in t
  9. Bill Barnwell from ESPN seems to think it would be a good idea for the Colts to trade for Darnold before the deadline. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30115789/nfl-trade-deadline-offers-13-proposals-players-get-dealt-2020-including-sam-darnold-dwayne-haskins-zach-ertz
  10. I agree with this. I am of the mindset that there are probably too many players in the Hall of Fame. When I called Rivers a potential Hall of Famer I was basing it on what I've heard from announcers and read in articles. It also doesn't hurt that he is top 10 all time in most statistical categories for QB's. I know a lot of that has to do with the fact that the rules today favor the offense, but you can only play in your generation. Although it is fun to imagine what a guy like Johnny Unitas would have accomplished had the rules been the same in his day as they are now. I will give Rivers this
  11. Come on man. Philip Rivers is probably going to Hall of Fame once his career is over. If the Colts were to cut him tomorrow and he were interested in still playing I guarantee he would garner far more interest than Chad Kelly. Philip Rivers is a proven commodity in the NFL. I didn't say that CK wasn't good, but come on, do you really think if he were NFL starting or even back up QB material that he wouldn't be on a roster? He might have all world tools but for one reason or another he just doesn't have what NFL teams are looking for. Of course a bunch of armchair GM wannabes on an NFL forum kn
  12. We probably will, barring injury, play Rivers all year. Why? Because he gives us the best shot of winning each week. Personally, I am growing tired of hearing about how we didn't give Kelly an opportunity to play last year. In the NFL the bottom line is winning. If you don't win you don't keep your job. If a team thought they could suit up a chimp at QB and he could win games they would do it in a heartbeat. Chad Kelly was NEVER going to be our franchise QB. I believe that the Colts thought he might be a solid backup QB, but evidently he never did enough to warrant staying on the roster. In a
  13. Well it won't be Matt Ryan. The Falcons would have a dead cap hit of $49 million if they let him go. That ain't happening especially if the salary cap is lowered next season. Out of the options mentioned I think Sam Darnold is the most intriguing. He'll just be 24 going into next season. The kid has some skills. He just needs some decent coaching. If we were to get him for a 2nd or 3rd round pick I wouldn't mind. We would also have the option of picking up his 5th year option. I would prefer going with Darnold over an aging QB.
  14. You really want to put JB in over Rivers? Come on! I'm the first to admit River's play hasn't been stellar, but there is no way you can actually think that JB gives us a better shot of winning. We need to acknowledge the fact that our receiving corps has been beaten up and our QB had no real offseason to build a rapport with his new teammates. Unless you are JB's mom, I don't see how you can possibly think that he gives this team a better shot winning than Rivers.
