  1. I’m loving Mo right now and definitely for fantasy! Doesn’t matter what happened last year or year before. See the Chargers with a new QB and Keenan Allen this year- its not working. Guys I’ve not heard of this past weekend getting TD’s. I remember watching an undrafted FA Gates first year- it all comes down to trust with the QB. Not sure if Mo has previous basketball experience but give him credit he’s a stud!
  2. Couple things here and I’m pretty new here but Rivers has never in his career had a good line. And while Luck is a better athlete and I’m sure his line your talking about was atrocious - take a look at the 2019 Chargers line. He literally didn’t have a left or right tackle and the rest were horrible not to mention 3rd center. Rivers has a very quick release and the only reason he’s alive and playing. On the Chargers forum people openly agree Rivers left because of the talent on the o-line. People are * because the staff never was able to adequately evaluate o-lineman. And after 16 season
  3. Having watched every snap of Rivers NFL career he’s better than Carr. Rivers is older granted but he’s basically like having a coach at QB. Similar to Manning in that way. I think Gruden also would rather have Rivers over Carr. Luck was such a stud and incredible athlete - very different player than Rivers. But I think Rivers has a lot left in the tank and he’s never, ever had a good O- line.
  4. What everyone is forgetting folks like Warren Moon ran a special offense with Houston. It shouldn’t just be judged on SB’s or as someone said Brad Johnson would be in. If you’ve been a prolific player or really stood out guys like a Junior Seau. Being tops in the league is more important than SB’s. Folks like Marc Levy getting to four SB’s despite losing them all.
  5. No offense but absolutely ceiling being backup. Tyrod Taylor is very, very lucky to be starting but I think he’s better than JB
  6. I love this pick and him and Mack. You take RB’s from Wisconsin you don’t draft QB’s from Oregon
  7. Every 9ers fan would rather have Buckner over Kinlaw everyday. I’m a former Chargers fan and consensus everyone is pretty bummed with Herbert pick. They’d rather have Rivers any day over Herbert (Oregon #6 pick who could blossom) or Tyrod Taylor. I think so far this offseason is an A+. I think Ballard seems like a good GM and excited about the rest of this draft!
  8. Folks, back in 2004 and 2005 the Chargers had Brees and Rivers. Most know what happened with Brees injury and ending up in New Orleans. Brees is a great QB, won a SB, found the right coach-system-team,etc. And everyone here should understand not one Charger fan ever wished they’d kept Brees over Rivers. I’ve never talked with one Bolts fan that said that. Brees behind all the Bolts o-lines was not great and would have fared far worse than Rivers and his quick release. Most on this forum would love Brees and I can tell you Rivers will make this team competitive. He’s got his faults, but h
  9. You can’t underestimate how important a great offensive line is. Doesn’t matter how good your skill positions are Gordon, Ekeler, Hunter, Keenan and Mike Williams. Watching the Chargers- they’ve not had a good offensive line since the Fouts days. The Titans I think have a great line and so do our Colts. I’m more afraid of the Titans than the Chiefs and Rivers will help give these guys a chance in the playoffs. For golfers, he reminds many of us of Phil Michelson before he won the Masters
  10. It’s tough I really like Gordon. He’s a great receiving back and between the tackles. He’s most importantly proven he can get TD’s in the redzone something he struggled with earlier in his career. Not that the Colts need another RB but Gordon has a chip on his shoulder and is a huge value. The Broncos were smart I think. Would have loved him in Indy - not that we need him
  11. Bulaga and Turner are 2020 FA’s and didn’t play last year. And Pouncey played what 2 games. They went through three centers and just a rotation of people UDFA’s at both Tackle spots. Rivers does have a quick release and there was a stat last year for how quickly he had to throw- recall it being a fraction of a second. Two great running backs and absolutely zero running game due to the % line. A scrambling QB would be f’ed behind that line and Tyrod Taylor is a massive drop off from Rivers.
  12. if Rivers is still here in 2022 it’s because he’s taking the team deep into the playoffs. Colts are win now Phillip wants a ring and I don’t want to jinx things but this is a good situation. Soon everyone here will be a fan and hoping he’s not retiring. is Kelly related to Jim Kelly?
  13. I know everyone on this board is tired of hearing from Rivers fans already. He had a recent year where we lost Allen and Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin of course was hurt. The receiving corp were all UDFA’s and he had a great year with Reich and Tyrell Williams. He does better with taller receivers like Vincent Jackson but he’ll make average receivers look pretty good. I’d been a Bolts fan since 1980 and remember not being sure about Rivers when he was drafted. Hearing from all these Rivers fans on our board then and I’m sure converted!
  14. Rivers behind your offensive line he’s gonna kill it! Dude is so smart and has the arm strength. I’d rather have him over Brady. But bet the ranch/ farm no QB could play behind the poss poor Bolts lines the last few years. No elite QB would. Whatever you might think Rivers specifically wanted to go to the Colts. This is a win now deal for your GM and it’ll pay dividends
  15. Fellas, I’ve been a Chargers fan forever and now officially a Colts fan. Trust me, you’ll love Rivers and yes you guys are a great team - but he gets you further. The guy will earn it believe me and despite our * line he’s always had us in games. Puts team over stats. I’m just happy he gets a home crowd he deserves. I was a season ticket holder in San Diego and the move has been very frustrating. I’ve liked watching the Colts before and looking forward to going to some games!
