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.

I agree. I think Rivers was just a name to try to see season tix which is ironic given there are no fans this season. Time to go back into the QB pool and try to find THE guy.

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?

I don't think that was it at all.   I think it was because they thought the team was ready to win now and Rivers was better than Brissett and also had experience in the Reich system.

I believe Brees set some kind of record last year going 30 for 31 against our defense.  And now Minshew goes something like 19 for 20.  Minshew of all guys.  What gives with this defense.  Some changeover in personnel and similar result.  Our scheme and players are not getting the job done.  Pretty pathetic start for the defense.  How can you not be worried when we start facing better QB's and better teams.  First game but Still......

That is head in the clouds if they thought that. The team is no where near championship level.

Or what about "Camp MVP" Tyquan Lewis? He and Banogu combined for ONE tackle. 

Lewis only got ten snaps and Ben 7. When so we start giving them more snaps to see what they can do. It’s looking like Banogu was way over drafted.

IMO, the most surprising thing was the lack of pass rush or any type of pressure at all from the DL. That was supposed to be our biggest strength. 

It was surprising.   Not sure it was supposed to be our biggest strength.   Maybe you meant to say biggest improvement.

Let me see if I understand this. We upgrade our qb, upgrade our runningbacks(though losing Mack now hurts), upgrade our defensive line and secondary. And we still lose to the Jags?????????????? The more things change the more they stay the same. Life in the nfl I guess.

    • He's definitely not a top 5 cornerback at all..   Alexander, Ramsey, White, Howard, Humphrey, and tons of others have been way better than him this year
    • Right. Reich talked about it in the offseason...that explosive plays were a missing ingredient. Whether he practiced what he preached is a different story (and of course there’s context that goes into that...like who their QB was). I am just saying that he has indicated that he wants to be more than a methodical clock control offense. And I think Reich will look to do that...when they have the QB in place.   DVOA definitely has the Colts defense rated ahead of the offense. The Colts  overall defense was #7 and the overall offense was #12. More specific to passing, the Colts passing offense was #16 and the Colts passing defense was #8.   The defensive ratings are likely skewed by the first half of the season...but the offense had the easiest schedule of any team...and still managed to be middle of the pack in passing offense (according to DVOA).    Yes there’s room for improvement on defense...but it’s tough to expect better than a top 7 unit. An edge rusher will help with the pressure rates...but they have showed they can make big plays and create takeaways. I would say the defense is pretty damn close to being a viable SB winning defense (especially when teams like KC, GB and BUF are currently playing to go to the SB).   So the priority should be the passing offense. It’s the necessity to this team getting to the next level...which is a SB. Otherwise, they would have to buck a trend that only historically elite defenses have been able to do.   And to improve the offense...they need a franchise QB and additional weapons. 
    • Well Frank said moving him to tackle would be discussed this off-season so the Colts are at least considering it.  Rather they do it or not remains to be seen.
    • Good blooper reel of Cole vs Louisiana with 10s left in 2Q where the BJ takes him out.  Good backpedaling and change of direction with enough speed to build up enough force to get knocked down.  May need some NFL strength conditioning to help shed blocks.
    • Do I need to point this out? We all know how valuable LT's are in the draft. If Quentin Freaking Nelson was LT quality, he would have not been paid a # ton of money to be a guard. He would have been scooped up ASAP as a TACKLE.     What....like every team missed this and suddenly he can be just as awesome as a tackle?
