I was expecting high percentage passes to Hines out of the back field yesterday.  I wonder why we didn't see more of them.  Turned out OK though.   

Did Fountain make it into the game yesterday?   I don't recall seeing him, but I don't always notice all the players each play.

Fountain did play in the game. They just didnt get the ball to him. He had snaps

When the game was discussed by reporters they all agreed he threw three INTs and was lucky to have one called back. If a RB fumbles the ball three times but his team recovers the fact stands out he lost the ball three times.

Oh well, if the reporters agree :rolleyes:  He threw 2 INTs and would have had three if not for a penalty.  Those are the facts, anything else is changing facts to fit a narrative.

Isn't it funny how this guy is obsessed with trying to credit Rivers with 3 INTs against Jax, but has literally said nothing about taking away the MIN INT that was 100% on the TE?

 

My guess is that King Colt hated the Rivers signing, and he'll spend all season trying to justify that stance, regardless of how Rivers actually plays.

Rivers is playing way better than the stats indicate.  Once the WRs start to gel, I think the TD/INT line will drastically improve.  Currently at 399 career TDs by the way.

 

Only thing that matters is winning though.

 

The stats indicate he is playing well too. He threw a couple of INTs...but other than that...he has looked good. I don't think anybody thought we were getting a prime Rivers. His passer rating is trending to what we should expect...and the TD % will regress to his career mean...and I don't expect him to continue throwing bad INTs all year. 

 

The difference between Rivers and JB is night and day.

You are wrong. Why hate Rivers after the the Colts recognize they have a QB problem? I'm sure Rivers may have not been their first choice but he can keep them in the chase. He can't compare to the leading QBs this season  but a strong running game can keep the team respectful. The second half of their schedule will reveal the truth.

Funny that both Chargers QBs are at the bottom of this list. 

 

I almost posted that to the other thread. Had it not been for those 2 INTs, folks would saying how much of a genius is for Ballard to have gotten Rivers lol. Everytime some farts, Ballard is a genius though.

The one thing some people have completely ignored, or are just flat out not capable of understanding, is that Philip isn't likely to lose nearly as much of his effectiveness as other top quarterbacks as they age because he's never had the level of physical athleticism that they once had. His effectiveness has always come more from the neck up than most other top quarterbacks. And he's not going to lose any of that.

What you are failing to see is Ballard has been building this team to win without the QB having to carry the team.

Rivers does not have to have big numbers for this team to win. 

We have been a victim of having those kind of teams for a very long time. 

It produced one super bowl.

“That Old man Rivers...he just keeps rolling aloooong!” 
 

Glad he had a better outing against the Vikes.  Hoping he can continue with more games like that.  Offensive game planning and run pass ratio was much better and I believe that allows Rivers to be at his most effective.  Eventually I expect opposing defenses to sell out more to try to stop the Colts running game and put more of the game pressure on Rivers’ arm.  We will see how well the Colts can adapt when that happens.

Rivers was probably our best choice coming into this year with Luck gone. He really is about the only QB that can come close to being as great as Luck was on many Sundays. Peyton was basically the GOAT, top 3 at worse (Brady/Montana), so we will never have that again but Rivers will be HOFamer IMO. Something Luck won't even be because he retired early.

An improvement over Brissett.   That's all I wanted.

Another solid outing by Rivers.

 

17/21 (80%), 217 yds, 1 TD 0 INT, 125 passer rating

 

Didn't have to do much today, but he is playing terrific football, even if the stats don't turn heads.

When your defense outscores the opposing team, you don’t have to do an awful lot. Kudos to Philip for not just chasing stats, as he climbs in the record books for all time production in NFL history.

Even Brady rode the tail coats of a superior defense...multiple times depending on who you talked to. No shame in it. A ring is a ring, even if it's romanticized more than it should be.

Its absolutely fine to wait until the evidence reveals the answer. But do you people have to remind everyone of that fact when there might be a reason to believe this team is a contender? It's the most annoying thing about internet naysayeres. Like, just let us enjoy the * win.

Rivers is a HOFamer, JMO. Winning 10 games or more will be automatic with him in there. He has a O.Line now, I haven't felt that good about since 2018 when we had Luck.

Lots to be optimistic about. We’re trending in the right direction. Granted after week one, it wasn’t hard.

    • My idea is not far from those who say keep Frank as the HC, but take away the OC responsibilities.    My idea is NOT to give this person veto power over Frank, but to instead be a voice of reason and experience where I don’t believe we currently have that.  Someone that Frank would respect and at least listen to to avoid his worst tendencies.  Is that simple enough for you to understand?   But as our resident conspiracy theorist where you think all the noise since the end of the season is only to sell season tickets that’s fertile ground for you.      When you said Frank coming back is a bad thing, you lost.   When you said you think we end up 6-11 or 7-10, you lost.   It’s your opinion,  but I think you’re among the extreme fringe of this fan base.    And when you write painful drivel like this, I literally have no idea why you’re a fan of this franchise?   Why waste time here except to troll.    You don’t like the owner.   Check! You don’t like the GM.       Check! You don’t like the HC.        Check! You don’t like the QB.        Check!   Why stay and post?   You’re miserable and it’s reflected in almost every post you make.    
    • I understand you on Jimmy not being much better, I just think those little differences with a good squad can make us better... we have a better run game to open things up... I feel like running Carson again is a set back...Garappolo plays better Ds more often than us...
    • I agree about this, we could consider moving to a 3-4. The 4-3 zone used to work because we had Mathis and Freeney who could create pressure with out blitzing and scheme. A duo like that is rare. Flus is probably gone and most D Coordinators available run 3-4 anyway...you can get blitz creative with 3-4 and disguise it better and run better coverage with it...time to give up the dying D scheme...
    • I just don't see Jimmy as a upgrade. I think it would be better to go with Carson 1 more year and if he doesn't improve move on
    • Carson had a lot of throws dropped by defenders, the most of any QB. Not saying Jimmy is Perfect but he will get the ball out quicker and won't throw shovel prayers or left handed ducks...plus Carson has proved to struggle once questioned. We need to sign reassurance, can he handle that... I rather call it a loss than waste another year trying to teach an old dog new tricks...
