Thank you because I didn’t notice 10 at all. Dublin got some snap on offense from what I seen as well. 

I agree, I didn't notice him either. I was shocked when I saw the snap counts. Haha

Just some historical perspective as to whom we have under center right now......   Essentially broke all SEC Records set by Peyton Manning before graduating as a senior....   Draft

Yes, new to the Colts the day Philip signed. And enjoying every minute of it. Not only watching him with a vastly better team around him, but my time on this board, as well. It's been a lot of fun.

Well, Ryan is in a perfect position to get revenge for that.

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.

We clean up the red zone and third down stuff our offense is looking a lot like it did in 2018 with Luck. Rivers isn’t the play maker that Luck was outside the pocket but the offense seems to be rolling pretty nice.

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.

Never get in a fart contest with your center is, I believe, among the first 10 rules in the NFL QBs guidebook.

I think Rivers has been solid for the Colts so far this season. He forced a couple of passes week one in which got picked off, but week two he took care of the ball and continued to be accurate. That INT in week two was on Cox. We just need to clean up our red zone offense. We need more TD's.

“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.

He looks much more comfortable with this Oline and offense then he did with the chargers last year.

Agreed. Even when the pocket is collapsing, he’s urgent without panicking. Exactly what you want/expect out of a vet like Rivers.

I see my boy Reece caught about 2 passes from Mr. Rivers today. 

I was kind of impressed when I saw him make the first nice grab and then a second shortly after. Hope its not the last time I see him.

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.

    • People are assuming its the Eagles offense of the 2010's.    By looking at the between the tackles runners, the unwiggly WRs (all of them), and the strong armed QB the GM is getting for him, I'd say its more like the Buffalo Bills of the 80's
    • I keep coming back to the fact that we hired him because we were scrambling to find a coach after McDaniels stuck it to us.  I don't believe anyone interviewed him that year for a HC position including us on our first go around.  That tells me he was not high on the list that Ballard keeps updating in his desk drawer.  To me he's been okay.  Sort of middle of the road.  Not sure he can get us a SB.  He knows Ballard is his boss and calls the shots.  Ballard gets him the players.  He needs to win with them.   To me this is a big year for him.  He has a veteran QB he knows and whom he is very comfortable with.  The rest of the team is solid and has improved every year.  There is an extra playoff team this year.  I think he needs to make the playoffs.  If he doesn't I think he could be in trouble.  We all like Frank but he has to make the playoffs to keep his job IMO.  If I were Ballard a five hundred season doesn't cut it.  
    • Like I said, he got injured. I'll buy one year, but even then his (Matthews) attempts were low to start the year, and that was coming off a 1000+ year. What is interesting, is that his attempts only increased to norm levels (balance) after he came back from the injury and his AVG was much better too. Sirianni as a coach (not an assistance or staff) spent most of his time at LA/SD. I agree Reich has had more, but LA/SD still is the majority. I don't see him like Pederson, or others. I don't even see him like Wisenhunt. Agreed. I also wonder how much impact he has on the D side. I've mentioned in another thread, that Eberflus came from more aggressive teams on D. 
    • Probably. And being a D1 QB, he’s likely getting laid well too 
    • Its not a blame.  It understanding there is a cohesive philosophy.  There is the here and now, and then there is where we want to be.   My point is that over the course of the past two seasons. there have been rumblings about Reich not being a great HC, notably pointing to play calling.  In that context, the comments are usually in the environment of Reich not being the offensive mind we thought, not being a good play caller, no innovation.  As if its a deficiency on his part, that he wishes he could call better plays, but just can't see them due to some blindness.  And some blindness is holding us back from where we should be.   I think he calls the plays by choice.  I think he wants to be conservative.  I think he feels that's the best chance for the team to succeed, and those are the best plays to call given the talents of the players he has to work with at the moment.  To the extent Ballard is in this conversation, I think Ballard agrees. There is no tension, no different look.   I don't think that calling different plays will succeed.  I don't think having another play caller...unless its someone on the team....is going to work any better.   You can call for Hines on a jet sweep, but it will probably get the same two yards as calling Hines up the middle....because that's who we are right now and Reich (or Ballard) can't really change that at the moment.    KC plays a much different style than BALT.  Tenn plays different than both.  They don't have the ability to change up how they win when their primary system isn't working.  Only NE could do that.
