Iron Man Philip Rivers


Recommended Posts

Sunday 9/13/20 at the Jaguars will be Rivers 225th consecutive start and 72 consecutive starts behind Brett Favre's all time record of 297 which could be broken in 2024 (including the playoffs it will be Rivers 236th consecutive start which is also 2nd all time, and 85 behind Favre's total record of 321).

This is very impressive as Philip, the cream of the 04 class has done this healthy (other than a torn ACL which he played on anyways) when there are players like Rodgers class of 05 and Brees class of 01 and Brady class of 00 aren't even in the realm.

Russell Wilson (class of 2012) of the Seahawks is currently at 128 (puts him on pace for 256 in 8 years drafted 8 years after PR).

 

If no Brees on Bolts in 04 and 05 Rivers would be at 256 right now and way past Marino for total yards & TD's.

Here are the NFL ALL TIME QB TD Passing Leaders:

Rivers will get at least 23 TD's this year and pass Marino.  Needs a few more seasons to catch Favre, Manning, Brady & Brees and I personally believe with his intelligence he could play past 45 but he wants to coach his high school son on Fridays which I hope the Colts will let him do that on Fridays and play for them as well the next 10 years and lets him do both!

Once again Rivers will easily pass Marino this season and needs a few more seasons to catch Favre, Manning, Brady and Brees if he keeps playing. 

(Matt Ryan having a very nice somewhat quiet career keeps moving up the ladder as well).

Rivers also set an NCAA record of 51 consecutive starts at N.C. State.

According to the Los Angeles Times, when considering his options earlier this year, Rivers said “I can say for certain that if I’m playing it’s a two year maximum.  Whoever the suitors are, I think that would be their hope as well.”

In his era, I have always considered Rivers a top 10 QB almost every year. There was a couple of years where he performed as a top 5 guy. I am glad we have him. I think QB's like Peyton, Brady, Rodgers, Brees, and maybe Big Ben have been better over the years (Wilson, Luck, Ryan, Cam better at times) but Rivers is right there after that IMO. Right now we have Mahomes of course. Had Rivers had the defenses that Big Ben or Wilson had, Rivers would probably have a ring by now. I think Eli is a HOFamer because of his 2 SB MVP's beating the Patriots but Rivers is better in reality so Rivers belongs in the HOFame IMO.

I live near where he played high school in Bama.  I remember people saying that Auburn and Bama were going to go after him.  Neither did, maybe because of that odd throwing motion.

 

I think he’s always been underestimated in that way.  This is his last chance to get a ring.  He’s smart enough to know his limitations and the team’s strengths.  He’s going to do whatever it takes to win.

 

I’ll admit, I was skeptical when we first signed him, but now I think it was the best move we could have possibly made.

I really like JB but Rivers is a definite upgrade even at 38 years old. JB is a great backup and is the type of QB that is average and can get you 8 or 9 wins in a season but Rivers gives us a chance at a SB run IMO. We will win at least 10 games with him. He still might have 2 good years left? We will see.

Hope so.  We all know that JB has a better arm and is more elusive.  But anticipation, awareness and accuracy are more important than arm strength.   
 

I’m trying not to get overly excited about the potential this year.  I have to keep reminding myself of the NO game last year to keep me grounded.

You're preaching to the choir here. Before that draft, I told everyone that I thought he would be the best of the 3 QBs. Most thought I was nuts; many fans did not know who he was. I have been a fan of his since NC State. I like leaders and he has always shown leadership qualities. When Teddy Bridgewater had his horrific injury in 2016, it was Rivers I wanted to replace him but that was never going to happen. The Vikes would have had to give up at least 2 first round picks. I would have done the trade. 

 

I wish him the best with the Colts. Even if he does not win a ring, he belongs in the HoF. A ring would seal it.

Ha ha, reminds me of when I posted during the 2011 offseason how after 5 years as the starter, he had never had a game with more than 2 interceptions, a run none of the other top quarterbacks of the time had had.

 

Then he goes out that season and has his first ever 3 pick game against the Packers, ha ha. And man I heard about that for years after that.

Good memory, Pride. And also in those early years it seemed he didn't throw picks in the redzone. you could track his riskier play right along with the chargers deteriorating o and d-lines (and nonexistent sp teams).

It was never the same after those first few seasons. For most of the past decade it felt like Phil had to play flawless for the chargers to even have a chance to win.

I think 2 sacks so far.  Well ahead of the league average.  Rivers has always been terrific at avoiding sacks...a very underrated part of his game.

If the Colts are averaging giving up 1 sack a game, I could live with that.

Congrats to Phil for becoming only the 6th NFL QB to throw for 400 TD's & only the 6th NFL QB to throw for 60k plus YD's!!

Hoping in the next 13 games he passes Marino for TD's & YD's

No matter how it turns out Phillip has earned a second chance starting with another team.

So far it's been pretty good. Yeah he wasn't great in the first game but he did play well enough to win the game, the rest of the team also didn't play weel as a whole. 

As I said earlier, I like his leadership. With the amount of young guys we have on the team, it's a good thing.

He'll never catch Favre, by 2024 he'll be living his dream of coaching his sons in high school football.

If we make the playoffs this year and win at least 10 games, I think he does play for us next year. I could see Ballard signing him again. 2024 is a push though, I agree.

This guy is just bad. We have almost 50 million dollars wrapped in QB’s and we don’t have a QB. There’s no reasoning behind it. No justification. No let’s wait and see. He’s awful. Another bad season that leads to a mid first round pick, assuming we don’t trade it for 2 other mediocre picks.

At this point I’d take Jacoby.  At least he doesn’t make the stupid decisions Rivers has been making when he’s behind.  Honestly if Rivers is going to make decisions like a rookie they might as well play the rookie Eason.  That’s what I was the most disappointed in Rivers today.  He panicked when the team got behind and made horrible decisions that cost the team the game.  I could live with that with Eason because in theory he should learn from it for the future.  In theory that’s why you paid Rivers that money to avoid those mistakes.  That’s twice now we’ve seen it from him when the Colts are behind which means I don’t think it was a fluke and frankly this has been the knock on Rivers during this career.

jacoby had 8 picks in 15 games river has what 6 picks two pick sixes in 5 games .   last week two picks landed directly in bears players hands , rivers could have 8 picks this year .  

Rivers doesn't have multiple pick 6's.  You must be thinking of Brady...the guy whose team is also 3-2 despite having much better weapons.  Try to keep up.

Sunday 10/18/20 vs. the Bengals will be Rivers 230th consecutive start and he will be now 67 consecutive starts behind Brett Favre's all time record of 297.(Including the playoffs it will be Rivers 241st consecutive start which also 2nd all time, and 80 behind Favre's total record of 321).

Where were you last week?  Clearly the reason we lost lol.

 

Hoping for better results today.  I still believe in the Colts and Rivers.

    • LOL.. it would be nice if things went easy like that. And you'd be maxing things out, without any carry over needed for the big contracts the next year.
    • Rivers is on pace to throw less TDs because of Reich's game plans and play calling. It's no secret. After a rough start, PR's INT % is less than even his 2018 stat, which was a very very good year. His QBR and Passer Rating have both been consistently improving since early as well. His YPG and ANY/A are now 12th, and completion % is top 10. He's improved dramatically.    And that's with musical chairs at WR and TE, no preseason, covid camp, on a new team, and in a new scheme.   Houston is top 10 in the league in win rate. He's also tied with Autry in pressures, and only a few behind Buchner. Old or not, he's playing well.    Xavier, old or not, he's having another pro bowl type year. His PFF rating is at an all time high, higher than his previous PB years.   Harris and Cox are ERFA, so yes cheap. 2M isn't all that cheap for Pascal, who is really a #4-5 guy. AQM might be cheap, but that doesn't solve much. Pascal is a #4-5 guy. If he's you're #1 or #2, or even #3, you're QB is more than likely going to struggle. It's what makes Rivers even more valuable, but he's been good at tossing to everyone......   I love PC, but assuming he can stay healthy is nothing but "hopeful" right now. And hope isn't a great strategy. I love Pittman too, but I wouldn't call him proven yet either. He is likely to be proven, but that gives us one guy that's a legit #1, 2, or 3. The fact you're comparing Winston to Rivers is pretty twilight zone type of stuff.    Colts were first in to Rivers, and acted quickly. And if Ballard's approach to paying QB isn't enough, or the stats improvement isn't enough, he's also led us to big comebacks, and carried the team in our two biggest wins when the defense stunk it up in the 1st half. It's not going to be a bidding war IF Rivers continues to play like he is. Ballard will offer him, Rivers will accept.      
    • lets take the 40 million you put out there and guess rivers takes no pay cut .   okay with 40 million left autry and rhodes 14 million pascal 2 million , harris 1 million muhammad 2 million burton 2 million cox 2 million odum 2 million , stallworth 2million . that is 27 million spent and keeping the core now the colts have 13 million left to go get a veteran wide receiver and pass rusher  for 13 million  combined .    we would have the same team as this year just swap out hilton and houston for another veteran and replace carrie with rogers and tell .    plus we can draft a 1st round pass rusher and second round corner .   so we can still have autry and turray start with a 1st rounder in the mix and keep rhodes moore rock with rogers and tell and another 2nd round corner .   plus take a tight end  and some depth in the later rounds
    • We are 19-4 against the Titans. Not a wild call.
