Rivers played like how I expected. Efficient with a few bone head plays mixed in between. He wasn't the reason we lost. We lost because our O line didn't run block as good as advertised and our Defens

A few thoughts.   1.  The defense was and still is hot garbage.  Gardner Mishew had one incompletion all day.   Let that sink it for a bit.  BTW this is not something new (remember the Saint

Rivers was Rivers. Expected more against a Jags defense that has lost their playmakers.   But what was that defense? All that talent, and they let the lowly Jags do whatever they wanted? 

No it was the defense. We can’t put him in a position to try to play catch up. I expected him to play like that if that was the case. Defense let us down today. We need to find an answer at CB.

I am not sure what to say, the defense was horrible and Rivers made horrible decisions 

And Hilton dropped two moderately easy catches at the end of the game. This isn’t all on him.

At some point you have to question Matt Eberflus.

A lot of bad stuff this game.

Bad decision to go for it on 4th and goal.

Bad INT setting up a short TD drive.

They stopped our running game right at Big Q.  What's up with that?  And we stopped running after that.

Another bad INT to lose the game.

And what was our Yards per Completion?  Checkdown after checkdown after checkdown.  Did we even throw beyond 10 yards in the second half?

Come on because we knew Rivers was going to force throws. Are defense can’t stop the run. We then had to abandon the game plan. This forced us to have to throw. Our pass and 3rd down defense continues to be bad.

Defense getting gashed on the run all day. Then getting absolutely zero pressure on Minshew.

 

O-Line was okay but not great. Jacksonville stiffened up against the run.

 

Our secondary were ghosts!

 

Lots of issues for this team

So basically our defense can’t stop the run or pass is what you’re saying

This is what everyone wanted. Could’ve had Brady.. but no let’s get the INT machine because Brady has hurt our feelings in the past. What a joke. A really good roster that is going to be a picking in the top 10 because we have terrible QB play.

Rivers did what Rivers always does. Looking at that performance it looks like the talk about it being down to poor O-Line play in SD was wishful thinking.

 

I was surprised by the defense though. Expected a lot more from the front 7 in particular.

Been saying this all off season.  This is an average team.  Rivers was the best option out there but he is probably on the decline.  Hopefully they get it together and stay competitive thru the year

Brady was the best option.

Rivers also can’t stretch the field. His arm is washed up.  If you can’t get big plays the same thing will happen as last year. Reich totally changes what was working in the first half on offense. Going to make a prediction Eason will be starting before the season is over. Rivers arm looks just bad.

Stop the run today yes. I expect them to be better as the season goes on. However the secondary needs to be solved in a hurry.

The best option is letting Eason play. Let the young QB take his lumps. At least he can throw it down field. Rivers clearly can’t.

His arm looked good to me. Again we can ask him to win us a football game like that. The defense is what you need to really look at closely.

Top 10 most frustrating Colts games I've seen.  Three times inside the 10, 3 points?

 

It certainly wasn't just Rivers.  Defense was horrible.  Any efficient, West Coast-type offense eats up this defense. 

 

Stupid penalties. 

 

I hated Frank's play calling, situational and overall.  I thought we were going to play like the 2006 Chargers.  Instead we played chaotically like the Chargers of recent years.

if they were going to go with a short year vetran contract, Brady easily was the best out there. Rivers is going to give you what he has given his whole NFL career, and this game was a perfect example of what that was.

Rivers had a pretty dang good game for the first time on the Colts roster in a real game. Offseason of hellish for all teams, no preseason games, and crazy protocols to go through to play the game. Yes he cost us two turnovers (3 in my opinion) and he made a few poor decisions, but the dude threw for 363 on 36/46. He isn’t why we lost this game. He cost us points sure.

 

It was the defense that cost us. Letting Minshew go 19/20 for 173 yards and 3 touchdowns is absolutely inexcusable.

4th and 1.... give the ball in tight space to the smallest RB who can't break a tackle head on instead of Mack or Taylor

 

Up 7-0... pass the ball 3 times in a row and force it on 3rd and 10 acting like he was under crazy pressure and try to force it to TY easy pick spark the Jags offense

 

Miss a 30 yard FG by new kicker "Goggles"

 

Pass the ball 45 times.

 

Force another stare down throw on a 3rd and 4 that's picked by a nobody.... you seriously don't have a play to get 4 yards vs zone but Colts zones get shredded all day and they stay in the zones inside the 20 and give up 2 uncontested wide open TD throws.

 

Drop by TY.... force next throw on 3rd and 4 because Rivers nevers keeps in a RB to pick up the blitz. Another drop by TY... OK???

 

Colts pass on 2 4th down and 1's. get one and lucky to get the flag on the 2nd. But the last 4th and 1 is setup by our WR who can't get even 1 extra yard after the catch the ball when it is needed. Real tough Campbell. 

 

Some old cruddy zones gonna get shredded by competent QB's which will nullify Buckner and Houston.

 

Playing like losers.

 

REAL * off

Rivers can't throw anymore. Going to be a long season. Can't believe how bad the D was on top.

We’ll have to see what Eason has at some point and if he’s nothing special, we’ll have to start scouting the top 3 premier QBs in this next coming draft.

This season is dead, I agree bring Eason in, he can't do any worst than Rivers.....Also, I don't believe Reich is the right coach for this team, play calling sucks.  And what's Hines carrying most of the workload when you have a beast of a rookie running back waiting for his chances.  We're supposed to be a running team.

    • It should primarily affect his ability to throw deep.  I don't see how it changes anything.
    • First, I should say you're seeing dramatically more than I am.    I've only seen a few games, and then hi-lites from most of the others.   Second, I should say what I often say with you.   That I admire your view and your judgement highly.   Always have.    All that said...    I think you're making far too much out of far too little.    I think expectations for all our rookies are outsized based on who they were....   but without the benefit of a normal off-season,  and without 4 pre-season games,  and then all the games Pittman lost due to injury,  I think expectations remain unrealistically too high.   Same with Taylor and others.   I'd cut Pittman lots of slack and not worry too much about what we're seeing until roughly a year from now.   Seriously.   I still think of Pittman's future as incredibly bright.    But maybe that's just me?      
    • The guy who shanked the punt (and had another blocked for a touchdown) was Trevor Daniel. Allen was their punter before him, taking over when regular punter Brett Kern was hurt. Allen played 1 game for Tennessee, a Week 9 victory against Chicago in which he averaged 50.5 yards per punt on 8 punts with a long of 65 yards but the Titans inexplicably replaced him with Daniel for their Thursday night matchup against us, and we all saw the corresponding results.   Kern is back as their punter now.
    • In that case, given how good their defense is, we just don't punt, lol  
    • Would be very happy with this scenario.
