Philip Rivers

Recommended Posts

Have to admit, I'm starting to get a little frustrated that he hasn't came to town yet. I know they cant go to team facilities but he could be in town and set up some workouts like many other QB's are doing.

 

Just really has me starting to question how bad he really wants it. There is truly nothing that is stopping him from coming to town and doing this. I get he is spending time with the family, but it's time to get to work.

 

Even Eason has taken steps to throw to some guys. See guys like Drew Lock, throwing to Juedy, buiding that chemistry.?

 

Idk? What's your guys feelings on it?

 

Or you seen anything about him being in town. I just tried to find something, didn't see anything.

He might be here. A couple weeks ago Reich said he would be coming soon. Campbell Is in town. I think some of the others are still out of town. I am always watching the players IG to see there is any hints that he is here. Rivers doesn’t have SM. TY lives in Florida so maybe he has got with him since his zoom interview.

Not saying there is a legitimate reason he's not in town but, you can't possibly know this as fact.

You should call him and demand he send a complete itinerary on his off season workouts to you immediately.

Absolutely!  I imagine packing up his couple dozen kids has to be a chaotic.  I'm sure one or two will be left Home Alone.  (insert the face shot here)

He is looking for the right GreyHound bus for his family and their belongings. 

 

He has to wait till their lockdown is over. :)

I'm just saying, early on he couldn't come because of coronavirus quarantine/restrictions. That is not holding him up at this point.

 

Why does everyone think everything someone post is stated as fact, it is obvioisly in the opinion of the poster. Hell, I even stated that he might be here already in the same post.

I'm sure he is in shape, but he could be doing more in person work to help start building some chemistry with our WR's + TE's.

A move up here doesn't entail that much. I'm sure they will be renting a furnished place. Just need to bring themselves, clothes and vehicles.

 

I'm pretty sure he pays movers, anyway.

 

I'm sure it's going to be ok, but imo, he should be here now. 

 

The team has a legit chance to have a special season. It's frustrating to see all these QB's working out on their own with their guys, and our guy not. That was the purpose of the thread. It doesn't worry you guys, its cool. * comments are always appreciated though.

His life is basically on YouTube.  I hope he continues to post when they start working out.  But I'm sure the club has rules on what he's allowed to talk about.

I think the reason we may not have known he is in Indy was maybe the social distancing & mask. No one recognized him. :D

Yeah I think he said they are planning to move soon.  They're gonna get an apartment first I believe he said until they are more familiar with the area before buying a house.  Smart, mature move IMHO.

  I am a bit of a mess with some of the worldly things going on.
 Hadn't given your point of worry a thought.
  That you offer what totally unproven players are doing to get better and compare that to Rivers, does concern me about you. I will probably NOT make a note, mental or physical, of it though. Carry on.

I listed 2 unproven players yes, there has been plenty other guys that are proven to have done it as well.

 

Point of listing younger guys just was making a point that they have took the initiative to make it happen.

 

 

If I would of listed Tom Brady, would that of been better for you?

I mean, this was 3 weeks ago.

 

How about:

Maholmes

Stafford

Tannehill

 

Just to name a few more, they all have been working out. It really doesn't matter though because Rivers is here now.

 

I'm not going to make a note either, carry on.

He seems like a very mature young man.  Having a father who played in the league probably helped.

 

Now his brother...that's another story...  But he's young and full of something and vinegar, right?

and a great writer of what a comedian says. Eddie Murphy was the greatest ever in the 80's because he had great content to say by the writers. He has sucked since then, like Chevy Chase too, funniest guys ever but you need great writers. The Simpsons have been great for 30 years because they have great writers.

Interesting note, according to oddschecker.com, more MVP bets were placed on Rivers in the month of May than any other NFL player.

 

I commented in another thread that I saw the odds at Bovada drop from +6500 to +3500 before I got a chance to put my money in.

 

Rivers is going to have a big year.  Lots of false narratives out there by the drive-by sports media, but anyone that has actually watched him play knows that he has not declined physically.  Last year's below average stats (by his standards) were a result of no OL, no speed receivers, no running game (set a super bowl era record they were so bad), and a joke of a coaching staff.  Gonna be an exciting year for Colts fans.

I saw that yesterday, when I was trying to find info on if Rivers had came to town yet. (Apparently I was looking an hour and half to early).

I agree with this to. Be is going to have 1 of the better seasons of his career.

 

Idk about MVP, but I'll be rooting for it.

    • Hmm, my only question is if they test everyone for COVID before entering the building (and I presume they use hand sanitizer also?), then isn't all the other precautionary measures redundant?
    • I wouldn't go that far.....  
    • And I do respect and support it, doesn't mean I have to understand it because we have to face the fact that we can't isolate ourselves for months or years and that we can't avoid the risk of getting infected. Regardless of whether you are going to the supermarket or meeting with your family there are things you have to do and there is no 100% safety out there. You said it yourself: So many opportunities to get infected. Not only on the field or the football bubble but in real life that we simply can't avoid.    And If Joe Nobody can go to the office every day I think a football player can go on the field. And as I mentioned a football field is a much safer environment than an office with tests on a regular basis it's probably one of the safest places especially if they play the games without spectators. They say that it takes at least 15 minutes of realy close contact to an infected person to infect yourself in a closed room. And there are a lot of measures to minimize the risk like a max number of people in the training room etc. And yes Corona is a serious virus I don't doubt that but it's not the killer virus that is threatening to exterminate humanity. What we are facing now and that is noboby talking about is that we are dying a slow and steady economic and social death! But thats just my two cents.
    • First, I’m not sure it’s known just how much time you have to be near an infected to actually become infected yourself.      Second,  think of football this way...  every huddle, and there roughly 65-70 of them each side, each game is an opportunity.  Each play and tackle is an opportunity.   Every time a player goes in the team complex is an opportunity.   Every time you’re in the locker room, the weight room, the team meeting room, the positional meeting room, you name it, they are all opportunities.    There are so many different opportunities to get infected.     Plus, you talk about young people...   those people have their entire career in front of them.  The longer this drags out the more we learn that we don’t know as much as we thought we did.  That even when you’re Covid free many still report issues with their heart and lungs.  That’s not good for anyone,  especially athletes.  Young athletes are trying to protect their careers.    These decisions are complex, but you have to respect and support every decision,  no matter which way it goes. 
    • I respect there decision but don't understand it. Why? Athletes get tested on a regular basis, they can wear helmets with a faceshield, we know that u need to spend considerable time very close to a infected person to get infected yourself and they play outside where the risk isn't that big anyway. So athletes are probably the most safe persons in this pandemic. If others can do their daily work athletes can do it too.
