The red zone % can be misleading. Looking at that, one would not expect 7-3. I find our offensive rz % more concerning than our defensive #.
However, ifYOUR offense is in rz more often than opponent, and THEIR offense is kept out of rz more than your offense, you can better afford these #s.
Concerning, yes, but i would argue, at 7-3, there is more going on than rz % by itself.
? Rivers is the QB and the leader of this team. Yes the strong point of our team is the defense but it it still the offense that scores the points to win.
I agree that no one player is responsible but his veterans leadership means more than you want to give any credit.
Just because he is not a Mahomes or a Wilson does not devalue what he is to this team.
With the help of the defense he pretty much equaled Rogers this last week.
He has already done more for this team than a lot of fans thought he would.
I don’t mean to split hairs....
But while freely admitting 2020 Rivers isn’t 2010 Rivers or even 2018 Rivers, he’s certainly much better than 2019 Rivers. He’s having a very good year, and he’s doing that without the weapons that other QB’s have. And he’s doing it without the expected running game until this week.
2020 Rivers is also clearly better than 2019 Brissett, so I’m not ready to discount his responsibility for our current 7-3. I agree things could still come off the rails. I agree that the defense and ST get equal or greater credit, but still... Rivers is driving our offensive train in a way JB could not. So it feels that at least thru 10 weeks, at least, he’s deserving of more credit than you’re currently offering.
Did I thread that very small needle?
When I was watching it on TV it seemed like there were a lot of Packers there but it seemed like 50/50 to me. Our crowd got loud when we were on defense at the end of regulation and in OT. 50/50 is still bad for a home team but it was noisy for the Colts at times too.
