We(Indianapolis Indians) used to be AAA team of the:
Reds 1968-1983, 1993-1999 and a bunch of other years
Brewers 2000- 2004
Pirates 2005-current, 1948-1951
White Sox 1957-1959, 1962-1967
Boston Braves 1946-1947
Not sute of your time frame, bit from sounds of it, Im guessing 2005-current
My first Indians days we were Expos affiliate
Indianapolis Indians have a very rich history, some of the names to pass through are great.
I agree with this. I think last years team would have been good enough with the addition of Rivers to make the playoffs. He doesn't even need to be all that good. Just consistent. As long as he doesn't try and play hero ball the Colts are in good hands.
Hell... maybe he will surprise everyone with his abilities. He's 38? Honestly a lot of guys were still great at that age (not elite). And I think the media has really unfairly judged him on one struggling season. Which I truly can't understand why.... they need someone to talk down about i guess. They want to give Brady every excuse in the book for why his season wasn't stellar but Rivers? Hell no!
True in Lamar's first year in the league, but not last year.... but even if it was true for last year, I'm just going to leave these stats here:....
L. Jackson 2019 passing stats:
401 attempts - 3,127 yards (avg 7.8) - 36 TD - 6 INTs - Passer rating: 113.3
P. Rivers 2019 passing stats:
591 attempts - 4,615 yards (avg 7.8) - 23 TD - 20 INTs - Passer rating: 88.5
I know which QB i'd prefer.... especially as this ignores Lamar's value as a runner and elusiveness. Also yes i see your trapdoor emoji, but i get the feeling that other people feel this way..... so i wanted to just crush that narrative.
Also, people please dont get me wrong, i think Phillip will do well with us and is definitely an upgrade for us. I was merely making the point that while he should be great (especially behind our O-line), let's not get too carried away thinking we have one of the leagues best QB's, because we don't. He will do a good enough job to not hold the team back, which is more than we could hope for last year at the position.
