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.

    • I think the browns are going to get a WC so yeah I think we need to root for the Browns. They get Garrett back off the covid list. The Steelers look pathetic against the ravens this afternoon. The ravens are hanging in their playing good defense.
    • The NFL is aware of the situation teams will be in. The NFLPA tried to get them to spread losses over 10yrs to eliminate the big hit this year. Owners were having none of it,  because they viewed it as an interest free loan for the players. They want the money back in their pockets faster. They did agree to drop to $175m minimum to help, but trams are going to be hit hard.   Im sure the league will still be spreading losses over a 2-3yr period with the $175m minimum for this year.
    • The money just isn't there unless we dont resign Rivers. He alone will take up $20-$25m of our cap space after we hold out our draft pool money($5-$7m).   We might be able to sign a guy but wont be to much.   Same as above.   Some guys will definitely be casualties but again the money just isnt there. We only have 37 guys under contract(well 38 now with Grover).  Players are not going to be signing multiple year bargains. Will be a year littered with 1yr deals, where players will hope the cap will go back up in 2022. Probably wont much, but that is what will happen.   Only have 2 guys that fit this category. Doyle and Glowinski.   Trading them would free up about $10m, then subtract whatever draft capital from that.     Last note, as stated in thread before, we are in better shape than a lot of teams, but the fact that, that doesnt include our QB, it knocks us down the list a little further.   A move for Darnold would only cost us $4.7m minus the money saved on whatever draft capital involved in deal, would make him pretty cheap.(not sure thats a move I would like to.make but definitely would help cap space next year.
    • Those losses to the Ravens and Browns really hurt.
    • Ravens Re hanging in this game. Would be just the colts luck for the Steelers not to win this game. Great coaching by harbaugh.
