You thought that with Rivers the defense would look like carp (Minshew was 19/20 for 3 TDs) and Hilton would drop easy passes?  Rivers would make Reich call a poor game.

Colts defense has always been suspect with soft zone coverages so them playing poorly is no real surprise. You’d think pass rush would be better with Buckner collapsing the middle so it’s disappointing the Colts defense did not show any improvement but not atypical from their usual performance on the field. 
 

I never was a big fan of Rivers signing. Feared he’d throw lots of picks if relied upon too much.  He threw 3 picks...as expected...unfortunately. 
 

Colts seldom win in Jax...they lost again today.

 

Colts in a season opener drought...that continued again today as well.

 

Writing was on the wall for a L today.

I don't get the hate for Rivers. He was 36-46 for 363 yards. Yeah he had 2 horrible picks. He had a rating of 88.7 which is higher than Brady for week 1. Rivers shouldn't have had to throw 46 times. That's on Reich for abandoning the run game. Blankenship missed a FG. We got stuffed in the redzone after some questionable play calling from Reich. Defense couldn't stop a nosebleed. I'm not sure why Rivers is getting so much hate. He wasn't brought here to carry the team. He shouldn't have to. This team has a stable of backs capable of running the ball for 150+ yards. His receivers didn't help in week 1 either besides Campbell. Hilton had 2 HUGE drops on the last possession. Rivers does deserve some blame for his 2 picks but he's far from the only person that deserves blame. Reich and the defense deserve much more. Everybody was complaining the Brissett wouldn't go down field with the ball and Rivers does and he gets chastised for it. Rivers takes chances and pushes it down the field. So which is it? You either want Brissett throwing 5 yard passes and not taking any chances or you want Rivers and him throwing downfield??

    • Cubs last 10 years gage = recent history: 2015 = 97-65  2016 = 103-58 (NL Champions, WS Champions) 2017 = 92-70 2018 = 95-68 2019 = 84-78 2020 = 34-26 (shorten Covid season) 2021 = 71-91 2022 = 74-88 2023 = 83-79 2024 = ?  Totals = 733-623 54.1% winnings = average of 88-74 per season.   Over the last 10 seasons going into 2024, MLB.com stat tracker has this is the Cubs ultimate lineup:   LF - Dexter Fowler (bats both) CF - Cody Bellinger (bats left) 3B - Kris Bryant (bats right) 1B - Anthony Rizzo (bats left) DH - Ben Zobrist (bats both) 2B - Javier Baez (bats right) C - Willson Contreras (bats right) SS - Dansby Swanson (bats right) RF - Jason Heyward (bats left) P - Jake Arrieta (Righty) Closer - Aroldis Chapman (Lefty) Manager - Joe Maddon  
    • Depends entirely on which site you're using for facts. Bralen Trice had the most pressures by far (80) according to PFF with Booker being 56th with 38 pressures.
    • One small side rant...    I'm not fond of this "mid-season" All America first team and such... Makes me question What happened after full season!?     As in itself, at least 200 out of 400 prospects vying for a draft slot was in some kind of Wannabe Kitty Cat Mountain Lion Conference Third Team, and now we have got "Mid-season", "Quarter-Season", so on...    And, what's the point of noting down someone's PFF grade after 9 weeks or last 6 weeks or such? It's like cherry picking when it looks good for a player...
    • Fair enough once again, I just don't recall anyone in Chicago jumping for joy that they drafted Trubisky. I have a buddy who's been a Bear fan since 1985, he wanted Watson and was pee'd they took Trubisky. I seen a lot of negative back lash toward Trubisky when he got drafted so on my end it isn't even hindsight. I thought Watson was the best QB of that draft. Turns out, I was even wrong, it was Pat. Watson wasn't a bum at least though on my end of thinking and had a few very good years with Houston.
    • So, only 1-year starters in college that have looked okay or better in NFL as QB are those who have crazy athleticism to be a dual threat!   No pure pocket passers in that list.   Mark Sanchez did okay though to an extent, having some success.
