Another Rivers to the Colts Prediction

Recommended Posts

I still don't see the point of it at all. Rivers won't be successful here. He has never made any significant impact w far better rosters. Waste of time from us imo.

Rivers with Reich (2013-15)

2013 - #5 in total yards, 32/11, #2 QBR

2014 - #8 in total yards, 31/18, #10 QBR

2015 - #2 in total yards, 29/13, #16 QBR

 

In 2013, he didn't really have a good #2 WR. In 2014 and 2015, he didn't have a pass catcher over 1000 yards. So did very well with a large mix of pass catchers. He also didn't have a 1000 yard rushing in 14 and 15.... so, far better roster??????

Rivers,as a player, for me is like Bill O'Brien as a coach. They will get you wins in the regular season but they won't get you over the hump when the games actually matter. If you think about what sort of talent the Chargers had from HoF tight end and running back to possibly the best roster in the league couple of years ago, he hasn't delivered imo. I just don't see how at age 38 he'd do any differently in the playoffs.

He's had bad OLs for the last 5-6 years though, so need to factor that. 

Not saying he's the 2nd coming, but he's a whole lot better than JB, and will be a good mentor should we bring in a rook (not to mention CK)

It's about to be interesting.

 

As many times as peyton lost in the playoffs I never truly felt it was because he was an inadequate QB. 

 

Honestly, if the Colts sign Rivers I can get behind it. I have heard that Rivers has a crazy amazing work ethic, which if anything, could help Chad Kelly who I am still keeping my eye on, or a draft pick. 

 

I don't see Frank or Chris signing a dud at QB, so if Rivers can even be half of the QB he used to be, the Colts will make the playoffs. With this trade that Ballard pulled off, to signing rivers, that leaves you a lot more room for error than JB could. 

 

And I think everyone is losing sight of how important an Elite DT is to this type of defense. Leonard has so many stats without a guy like this. Dont be surprised to see his sacks close to double this coming year. 

 

This defense just got geared towards giving a guy like rivers a lot of chances. This is Nelson for the oline level changing for this defense. You guys will see. 

 

I'm for Rivers.

    • Lol and for those still trying to keep count, Chloe has once again changed her stance on everything she has previously said. 
    • Any list that has Brissett is a bad list.  Also why even go past the total number of teams and rank backups who you rarely see against starters?  And on top of that it's bad enough that it's Simms writing this stuff.   Of all the media outlets I feel like NBC has the worst analysts and general football knowledge.  And Simms is a big part of that.   For the Colts there are two things in play this year...   First, how well can Rivers perform with all the pieces around him.  He's got an above average group across the board.  I would think pretty well is the answer but age is undefeated and he's got other competing interests now.  Even if he performs well and we see a deep playoff run what then?  He is obviously a short term answer.   Second, does Eason have the right stuff to be considered as the QB of the future.  Honestly the team doesn't know the answer to this right now.  They took a shot on a guy they liked, now will get a full year look at him to see how hard he works, how he leads, and whether he can process quickly enough.     Those two things need to be answered this year and the good thing here is with Reich and his offensive coaches I would think they will evaluate them well.
    • I think you're correct re: Kelly.  Nowadays you have to look past the coachspeak there are just very few head coaches who will tell it straight even when their moves tell a different story.  Kelly has throttled back on the partying but he's probably not a starting talent in this league.  Question with him is can he be the backup and in that respect I think Reich will give him every opportunity.  But Brissett is more talented, so chances are he'll be the backup.   You see this coachspeak stuff around the league it's nuts honestly.  Take any big offseason move and then listen to the press conference and the two just don't align.  Saints' Payton talking up Bridgewater like he's a quality starting QB but doesn't try to keep him or trade him and lets him leave in FA.   Rams' McVay talking up Gurley like he was such a great guy but hey we're gonna pay him truckloads of money to play somewhere else.  Belichick talking up Tom Brady even though clearly the divorce was set and folks knew it was coming for months.  On and on it's all the same nonsense really.   I just disregard what coaches say nowadays.  Let your eyes and common sense/knowledge of the game be your guide IMO.
    • I just threw up in my mouth.   What an embarrassingly bad take.   Hey, it’s your opinion, you’re entitled you it.   As am I to mine.    How sad. 
    • I think one of the QB's are going to get "dinged", and start the season stashed on the PUP, or IR list.
