  1. Don Coryell chargers coach when asked if Lionel "Train" James could repeat his 345 total yards in a game vs. the Raiders. "What a man does once, he can do again..." So it depends if Reich can get him back to form. Is his arm noodleish?
  2. Drafting a QB, especially a high draft choice seems to be the way to go these days. That said Colts are in a special situation. Meaning..they have a small window to make it to the Superbowl. Similar for example to Tampa Bay, who was missing a QB. Now whether or not another QB(like Rivers) is out there is entirely based on luck. If some quality veteran is out there(similar to the Rams Stafford deal) then that is the obvious way to go, otherwise, just have to draft.
  3. First of all...I never liked Green Bay so I am glad they lost. But that last 3rd down and possible 4th down series when GB could take the lead. 1. Rodgers could have run it in on 3rd, or at least got close for the 4th down. We probably all agree. They HAD to go for it on 4th down regardless. Whimpy coaching decision.
  4. I was hoping for one more year. Not to be. To the Rivers "noodle arm" crowd...next year when you are 4-6....maybe eat some crow.
  5. WEIRD football experience yesterday. I check the times for the Bills/Ravens..it says starting 1:30...I thought it was at 5ish? Dang...I put it on, and the Ravens kind of dominate. I keep thinking where's Diggs...must be hurt. anyway...Bills lose and I fall asleep. I wake up late and the game is on again, but the Bills have the blue uni's instead of red..hmm...turns out I watched a REPLAY...danit. So the Bills won the second game, which I wanted :>) I wish that would have happened with the Chargers in days past.
  6. I think the Browns have a chance if they can run the ball, and lots of short passes. But the chiefs had the extra rest so it will be tough.
  7. In order...Polamalu, Steve Atwater, Rodney Harrison. Ronnie Lott set the standard.
  8. As we all know QB's go thru phases in their careers if they are good enough to last. In the beginning, they can carry the team and the passing game is built around them (Brady/Brews for example) but as they get near retirement age, they need a team with a good defense, and a solid running game. They may be less mobile, or their arm may not be as live anymore. Brady went for that. Big Ben still looks great. So the Colts are a good match for Rivers in terms of the OL and running game. The defense to me just looks average at times, not sure why. So thats why I say a
  9. Once or twice a game? Maybe once or twice a season :>)
  10. I know Rivers probably will retire if he does not return to the Colts, but I saw a team yesterday that could use him. They are called the Tennessee titans.
  11. If all you want is a strong arm...maybe get some gold medal javlin thrower from the olmpics or something...I am sure that person can wing that ball pretty far. Then you can win the superbowl.
  12. I am a charger fan born and raised going back to the early 60's in San Diego. But like most fans, I have other favorite teams. The Joe Namath jets, and the Don Shula Colts. I never liked it when the Colts move to Indy. Sorry but thats the truth. But I don't like ANY teams moving. Teams I hate: Patriots, Eagles, Chiefs(just their fans ;>)., Steelers....actually.....its always the fans of the teams that turn me off :>) Anyway..it was easy for me to root for the Colts. I especially love the uniforms and how they have not changed that much.
  13. Bills 27 Colts 24 Only lost by a field goal, and Buffalo was probably the hottest team going into the playoffs. Everyone focuses on his arm, or mobility. Nobody mentions his leadership. His character. I could see if the Colts got blown out or something. That was a decent showing. Also..it was Rivers first year in the system. Next year he would be a little bit better. Anyway...the opinions on this forum won't decide anything. Reich will do that.
  14. Hilarious. Another post said since his arm was not strong enough, the hail mary did not work. You guys don't deserve Rivers. He should probably just go to the Patriots.
  15. So you have a poll, but with an option to not let Rivers return? He was the main reason you guys were in todays game.
  16. On the going for first down vs. field goal in the first: I think they when you have the momentum, or lead, take the field goal. That bad thing about a play like that. If the defense holds, it seems that there is always a shift in momentum. The momentum shift is almost more important than the points. It seems the team that takes over, they almost always go down and score. Very winnable game. Bills made the more clutch plays.
  17. Bills made some clutch plays on the last drive...a team like that is hard to beat. But the colts have a chance. Can't ask for more than that.
  18. I think the Colts could upset but don't have a score.
  19. As a Rivers fan I would prefer to not see him jumping around lots of teams...and if he wants to play pretty sure it will be with the Colts.
  20. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/upshot/indianapolis-colts-nfl-playoff-picture.html#buf-mia-17=win&cin-bal-17=loss&cle-pit-17=loss&ind-jax-17=win Playoff calculator pretty cool
  21. I followed Rivers since he was drafted. Sitting on the bench behind Brees. He is not perfect. I HAVE seen in big games sometimes he makes throws that make you scratch your head. Like that pass on the final drive that was easily intercepted. Bad pass. Who knows...maybe all the really good QB's do the same thing at times...but you have to take the bad with the good. I have also seen him make clutch throws to win big games. But he does have a reputation for the interception at times...no way does he have a noodle arm...but sometimes..a bit of a noodle brain :>) Like i said before in a
  22. Like a lot of teams, I think it may be coaching/play calling. Watching the game yesterday, it seemed to me that the running game was going pretty well. I think once you have a bit of a lead, and you have a good running game...go with it till it does not work. That play where Rivers fumbled and which turned the game around....I did not think we should have been passing there...just running..or some screens. Against a team that is know for pass rushing, you don't want to take too many chances. Just IMO and of course hindsight is 20-20 And those pass interference calls
