Minshew won't be able to see DeForest through the trees

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??

    • The quoted stat says JT runs.   The OP took that and somehow twisted it into an indictment on Rivers.  Pretty stupid post honestly.
    • A bit of a reach you're making here.  There's no evidence that stat has anything to do with opponents fearing Rivers' ability to throw downfield.  You come off as an irrational Rivers hater to be honest.   As others have pointed out, Rivers has been pretty deadly when going deep compared to the rest of the league. You also ignore the fact that this stat is for actual JT running plays - not all plays - as well as the fact that the stat is likely skewed by the fact that in half of our games we ran clock for the majority of the second half.  Of course the D is gonna stack the box in those situations.   Do you happen to know which 4 RBs have faced a higher percentage of stacked boxes on their runs?  And if so, do you also claim it's because those QBs are not "feared"?
    • My Dad died In 2008. I made the trip back then to the Baltimore Area and saw my old room. Mackey's poster was the only poster I'd ever had. Still was hanging, more than 40 years after buying it.  Great Man!  Most kids today never heard of him. Made the absolute weirdest 75 yard TD in SB V.....   In those days an offensive player couldn't catch it after another offensive player had touched it, unless the defense touched it in between.  The game was held up forever as the refs tried to see if a Cowboy's fingernail grazed the ball...
    • Does Brady have enough footballs to keep AB and everyone else happy? If I had to guess... no but we will see.....
    • Keep in mind the Bucs are in win-now mode. They know once Brady is done, they are effectively done. Taking a chance on Brown makes sense, because Brown makes them better now. The Colts don't need to win now because we have a young nucleus of guys and a promising (imo) young QB in Eason. I know that sucks to hear, but Brown isn't worth compromising our locker-room over.
