    • A rookie can learn under Rivers.     JB won 7 games with this team and had us in several others.  This is a good team but we are QB limited.   Last season JB threw for 6.6 yards per attempt.  Rivers threw for 7.8   JB averaged 196.1 yards per game  Rivers averaged 288.4   Sure Rivers threw a lot of picks and JB didn't.  You know who else threw for a lot of picks . . . Andrew Luck.    It's easy to avoid picks if you just play it super safe with the ball and stick to the underneath stuff.  Problem is that it's very difficult to score that way.  The reason that it's difficult to score that way is because of mistakes.   If you start at the 25 and average 5 yards per play marching down the field it takes 15 plays to get there.  Any time in those 15 plays you could have a penalty, a sack, or other mistake that sets you back and puts you in a hole you can't dig out of .  If constantly gain 5 yards every play but get a holding penalty on 2nd and 5 you are set back to 2nd and 15 and you can't dig yourself out.     Those long marching drives are great if you can pull them off but they are tough to pull off because of mistakes. All 11 guys have to play 15 straight plays of flawless football.     You need a QB who's willing and capable of taking some shots.  
    • OK.  Yeah, if Kelly beats out JB then he starts.  There would be no open competition if we signed Rivers.  We signed him to start.  So I was thinking that if you're saying we simply replaced Rivers with CK, we would have had to already decide that CKs starting and there would be no open competition.   NVM.
    • perfect storm for that to happen.  good qb coming off injury and drafted a very good edge rusher that made an impact right away    i suppose colts could get there if they add a QB that plays well immediately and add a high caliber player or two to the defense.   
    • Good news, I hope it comes to fruition.  Brady - Raiders Carr - Colts
