  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I can't believe we are only 5 games into the season, we have a winning record, and people are actually calling for a QB change. I never cease to be amazed at how quickly people jump on and off the bandwagon here. Has everyone forgotten that there were no OTA's or minicamps this offseason? Have we forgotten that there were no preseason games? I guess all of that stuff must be unimportant because we actually have people calling for a 4th round rookie to start over a proven veteran QB. I'll be the 1st to admit that Rivers play has been sketchy at times, but he is far and away the best option we h
  9. If the Titans are forced to forfeit their game with the Bills this week it could cost the Bills players a game check. Under the Covid-19 rules the teams don't have to pay salary for games canceled or forfeited because of the virus. The actions of the Titans could have serious ramifications for all the teams they play this season. https://sports.yahoo.com/bills-players-may-not-get-paid-if-titans-forfeit-in-week-5-due-to-nf-ls-coronavirus-rules-152712850.html#:~:text=Content is currently unavailable.,Buffalo Bills is in jeopardy.&text=If the NFL makes the,neither team would be pa
  10. Hurricane Delta could force the NFL to move the Monday Night Football game between the Chargers and the Saints to Lucas Oil Stadium. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30061881/sources-monday-night-football-game-move-new-orleans-indianapolis
  11. I was thinking the same thing, but Watson has a no trade clause and his dead cap hit would be astronomical. Watson and Houston are stuck with each other for at least 2 more seasons. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/houston-texans/deshaun-watson-21753/
  12. Mike Greenburg who is a Jets fan advised Trevor Lawrence to go back to school if the Jets get the #1 pick. http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=30022404
  13. Dominos could not be part of any deal involving the Patriots. Bill is contractually obligated to only make trades involving delicious $5 footlongs from Subway!
  14. This is probably the norm for most of the great QB's. I'm sure that Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, and others all have done the same. That is what makes them great. They see things and take chances that others don't.
