Am I imagining things or is Phillip ripping it?


Recommended Posts

Is it just me?  I swear there was some pop on those throws?!  I think with how he 'chucks' it, if he can step into a throw he can still deliver with some velocity.  It also seems if he can't get his feet under him or his torso into the throw then he fires ducks.  If we can protect him, he may yet be able to deliver, he knows coverage schemes so if he can surveil the field and step into throws dudes going to complete 80% of his passes.  This is the way...

Yes I noticed on his first throw to Fountain. Lots of torque in torso:

He almost falls over afterward. :D

Not only ripping it, but he's accurate too.

I noticed it on the long throw to Cox over the middle.  I couldn't believe the velocity on the throw.  Noticed it right away.

I rewatched parts this morning, and highlights this afternoon. Definitely had some zip.

 

Agreed.

 

He also seemed like he moved around the pocket much better today.  Zip.  Accuracy.  On time.  No sacks.  No interceptions.  No turnovers, period.  Made the right calls at the LOS.  Dumped/Went Deep as needed.  Mistake-free football.

 

And don't forget the nice rainbow he threw to TY last week (that TY dropped :().  Rivers can still rip it.  Hopefully, we don't really need him to until January/February.  :goodluck:  Right @Grigson's Gaffes?

Of course he's ripping it.  That's what he's done for 14+ seasons.

 

The only people who claimed his arm had physically declined were talking heads that never actually watched the Chargers games...they only looked at stats and jumped on the "Old Man Rivers is washed up" narrative.

 

The Colts got the best FA quarterback available in the off-season, even if it wasn't the most popular pick.  Let's just hope the Colts end up doing something with it.

I still think Brady is better but Rivers has been killing it

I disagree.  Brady has certainly declined in his accuracy, which started last season and has carried into his stint with the Bucs.  He's still a great QB, but he is occasionally missing throws these days that he didn't used to.

They kill me with those commercials. I've always cringed inside whenever I've had family over and they're talking about 'if you've had an erection lasting over 4 hours call a Dr'...wth??

He doesn't seem washed up or anything thankfully. It's nice having a guy who will not get lost in the moment or have trouble getting guys lined up, calling an audible etc. He understands situations and can't really be fooled like a young guy or just a guy who isn't very good.

 

I think he'll earn his money this year and will have a great moment or three...

Honestly if we stay healthy, I see no way we don't make the playoffs. Winning the Division is 50/50 only because of Tennessee.

He’s always thrown like that. Once Manning went to Denver I really started to take notice of Philip during those divisional games. I won’t go as far to say he’s vintage or anything, but Rivers is doing exactly what is expected of him. His throws have enough power for accuracy, but they’re not too much where the ball is nearly impossible to catch. If you’re a FA receiver playing in Indy, you’ve got to be excited. 
 

I think I remember an interview once where he explained his throwing motion was one of the reasons for his longevity.

Pretty amazing when you realize he's in the top 10 in many all time categories.

 

He was kind of an afterthought being on the west coast, playing for a team that didn't even have a stadium for a few years and a fan base that didn't love the Chargers in general it seems (not knocking their fans or anything).

He's not "ripping it." He's playing okay. Hasn't really gone downfield yet, definitely not with any success. His throw to TY last week looked fine. 

 

Rivers is doing well, he's playing efficiently overall, and he's keeping the chains moving. He has to do better at making plays on third down, and he has to do better in the red zone. I put some of that on play calling, but I think the entire offense is still finding it's way. It's early in the season, new QB, new receivers all over the place, injuries all over the place, no preseason. So I'm not sounding the alarm, but there are some areas where Rivers will need to do better if we're going to beat good teams this year.

He ripped a few throws, meaning, he delivered some balls with more velocity than I thought he had left.  He has big issues when he can't set his feet or get his core active in the motion, make no mistake.  But he popped some pads Sunday and I didn't think he had that juice left.  I'm working my way to cautiously optimistic, but I realize the upside is limited.  We have to run and give him a pocket against top defenses.

Always remember, sometimes you have to believe in a dream first before it can come true.

Rivers already has multiple completions on passes that traveled 30+ yards in the air downfield.  And then of course there was the 50 yard dime he threw that TY dropped.

 

As for 3rd downs, we have actually ran the ball in many of these situations and came up short.  Need to get that conversion rate up, but it's mainly due to play calling and game situation at this point.

 

Same thing with the red zone.  We've missed kicks, got stuffed on 4th down, and MAC caused an INT.  There's always room for improvement, but Rivers has little to do with the red zone failures this far.

 

He's playing much better than just "okay".

Yeah his arm strength is still just as great as it was when he came into the league day 1 LOL let’s see him fire some out routes to the flats and see if it holds up. Different ball game when you’re not beating up on the New York Jets of the world. The Colts best games have been when they’re running the ball, that isn’t a coincidence. In 3 games the colts have played one team with A win. Let’s see how Sunday goes before you start gloating and tagging me out of nowhere.

His Y/A is 8.6 and he is completing almost 79% of his passes. Sorry but that is better than ok. Not sure what you are watching? 3 TD's/3 INT's is just okay I will give you that. Last season the main stat everyone was dwelling on was Y/A with JB because it was bad. 8.6 is great no matter how you slice it. It should even be better if TY would've caught that perfect 50 yard TD pass.

The Bears will be a nice test but I think we pull it out. After we win that there will still be some people say the Bears weren't truly a 3-0 team lol, that is how silly some are. Bears to me are good at worse but not SB contenders, it would still be a solid win. Until we beat someone like the Ravens or Steelers the true respect won't come IMO.

Yeah I actually think the Bears are a quality football team and that Trubisky is limited. If the colts go on the road and win, that’s a big win for them IMO. My thing with football is you can only play your schedule, especially in the NFL. It’s hard to win from week to week. So if you go get one on the road against a 3-0 team that’s a big win. Week to week, especially this season.

I agree. Bears on the road would be a nice win. It is not like beating the elite teams but still nice. Any win on the road vs a good team is sweet.

I think another important aspect of Rivers game has been how much he has lifted the play of the entire team thus far. These guys "believe" they can win because of the upgrade at qb. There is an almost insane amount of intensity out there. Just got to eliminate mistakes and keep it going. On to Chicago.

Are you changing your argument about Rivers?

 

You've been saying he doesn't have the arm strength to zip passes downfield.  Now that he's done that, your argument is that he doesn't have the arm strength to zip out routes to the flat?  :lol:  He's been zipping out routes to the flat since week 1.

 

Your argument is invalid.  He's proven you wrong within the first month of the season.  Let's see if he goes the entire season without making any precision passes with speed, then you can start gloating about your preposterous preseason predictions...  :funny:

you’re about the only one who thinks he still throws the ball with the same zip he once did. I’m glad you’re happy they’ve gone two weeks, against 0-3 times mind you, without him throwing picks that cost the team. “Preposterous”?! There’s a reason ONE team was in on him. Like I said, let’s see when they actually beat a team that has won a game. Hasn’t happened yet.

I didn't say that, nor did anyone else.  He doesn't have the zip he did as a 24 year old.  None of us do.

Like I said, let’s see when they actually beat a team that has won a game. Hasn’t happened yet. 

 

We just had two impressive home wins in a row.  Solid defense.  Solid run game.  Effective offense on the ground and through the air (short, medium, and long balls).

 

I'm not sure what it would take for Rivers to change your mind, but I think it's gonna be a good year, maybe because of Rivers, maybe in spite of Rivers, maybe despite Rivers... but with a solid run game and defense... as long as Rivers plays smartyball... whether that's out routes, seam passes, or long balls.

 

Just don't turn the ball over and let our team beat their team.  :thmup:

So he has more arm than you expected? I'll give you that. 

 

Maybe I'm being pedantic, but when you say "ripping it," I think of guys with serious arm talent throwing the ball all over the field. I could give you examples, but I probably don't need to.

It should even be better if TY would've caught that perfect 50 yard TD pass. 

 

Per PFF charting, he's 4/9 on passes 20+ yards downfield. He has one pass completed 33 yards past the line of scrimmage, against the Vikings. (To MAC; really good throw, but it didn't exactly explode out of his hand.)  Per NGS, average completed air yards is near the bottom of the league at 4.9. Intended air yards near the bottom at 6.9. Longest completed air distance near the bottom at 39.2. 

 

He's not slinging the ball all over the field. The only throw that really qualifies is the shot to TY.

 

His efficiency is good to see, outside of the turnovers and coming up short on third down. His y/a is really good, completion percentage excellent. He's been meh on third down and in the red zone. Again, it's early in the season, and the offense is still working through things.

We have not taken a ton of long shots so far so I wouldn't say he's been ripping it, but his velocity seems good to me on most of the throws that require some zip on his throws. The far hash out throw seems very good to TY, the zip on some of the bullet passes down the middle seems good, too. His one shot to TY downfield looked great too. I'm not worried about his velocity. I want to see us take some more shots though. This is more on the playcalling than on Rivers though. 

 

I think he's been good and very efficient overall with what he's been asked to do. Definite upgrade over Jacoby.

Still having a hard time looking at his face after watching him be a crybaby for so many years, but I'm slowly getting over it. :)

 

His throwing motion is so weird to watch, it's hard to tell if he is really trying hard to rip it or not. 

 

Regardless, he's light years better than Brisket and that's all that matters.

    • Zib?    Bowen doesn't have "sources".    He says this is mostly his interpretation of the events.  He says he's connecting the dots.   What makes the most sense to him.    He never once said someone told me.    The closest things he said to sources is that he's heard "chatter".   I wouldn't call that sources.     I'm not knocking Bowen.    I think he makes a very strong case for connecting the dots based on the timing of events, plus what went down in the last few weeks and what we all thought might happen.      But if he had this as a "scoop" and had "sources,  there's no way he buries this in the middle of an hour long podcast and never teased that he had the inside scoop on what went down with Phillip Rivers and the Colts.   That would be journalistic malpractice.   
    • OK.....   Found it.   There's a section, roughly 11:30 minutes long.   It runs from approx 35:00 to approx 46:30.   Kevin almost downplays that he he has sources,  says he's heard talk,  but he makes a very strong and compelling case where he connects the dots.     And the dots seem to connect.   Dodds interviews for the Detroit job.   Somewhere in that talk,  the Lions likely share that Stafford wants to move on.  And the Lions will look to trade him.    That there's no way that Rivers would retire after talking up wanting to come back,  after recently moving his family to Indy, and his kids have been enrolled in exclusive schools in the area,  and then turn around and suddenly hang 'em up.    That Indy wanted to treat Rivers with respect and likely said to him that he can handle his retirement any way he wants,  and the colts will support that.    Kevin says Indy fans should feel good if this is true,  because to him it signals that Indy and Ballard have a plan.   He also turns around and says if the trade for Stafford doesn't work out,  then he hopes they can trade up and draft their QB of the future.   That things will get difficult for the Colts if the Stafford deal doesn't happen,  the Colts situation suddenly looks much more difficult.   Kevin clearly says this is his interpretation of the events.   I think he makes a strong argument.   But he does not cite sources.  He didn't get an inside tip.   But this is how he thinks the scenario played out.   Go listen to the passage.   See what you think.  
    • Cowboys have ~13m in cap space going into the 2021 offseason.  Most FAs are not worthy to resign it appears except for Jourdan Lewis and S Xavier Woods.  If the Cowboys tag Dak they will be immediately in the red.  So where is this extra cap space coming from to resign or tag Dak?    Logical the Boys are at the point where they must decide to cut young starting LG Connor Wiliams save ~1.8m against the cap.  Seems also need to cut K Greg Zuerlein and add another 1.5m savings.  Randy Gregory would be an easy cut as well saving another 1.2m.  Now we are talking about ~18.3 in available cap space.  Can keep cutting players like TE Dalton Shultz boost cap by another 1.5m.  Punter Chris Jones would be another likely candidate imo to get cut and save another 1.4m and now were only at 21.2m in savings.  That’s the bulk of their team from where I can see them gaining capital back.  One other player is WR Michael Gallup that could save them 1.7m but can realistically see used as trade bait to gain extra draft picks.  Bottom line is I cannot see the Cowboys resigning or even attempting to franchise tag Prescott and have no choice but to draft a low cost young QB replacement in the draft with their first pick.  Don't be surprised to see Dallas move up on Day 1 and trade Gallup for the lost draft capital to help offset.   Welcome Dak to the Colts and let’s go digest the rest of offseason.  When the Rams signed QB Goff to an average of $33.5 million per year Prescott reportedly was seeking a new deal in the $34 million per year range.  I didn’t add salary incentives this year just base salary due to cap reductions this year but added $10 million bonus each next 3 years and increased pay scale from 35, 36, 38, 40 million next few years.   64.887m cap space 2021 * updated OTC as of 01/27   Retired Rivers AC   Cut Skia Moore – 850k   FA Signings QB Dak Prescott - 35m increasing 40m next 4 years LT Roderick Johnson 2m/yr.  PFF stated he played 245 OL snaps only allowing 3 penalties and 1 sacks last season.  Would be a solid acquisition even coming from the Texans. RDE Dawuane Smoot 5m/4yr.  A little faster than Muhammad should be good in-house competition LCB Ahkello Witherspoon 3m/3yrs – Real deal CB imo get this guy signed ASAP even if means deselecting another   Colts FA’s lost Autry Hooker Clark – wanted to retire Walker JR Mack Wilson STP Houston Green Brissett Hilton   Unrestricted Free Agents: Carrie STP 1 / 1.5m – solid back  Hunt 2 /950k   Burton 1 / 3m – played 33% of snaps Stallworth - 1 / 750 k * updated colts already extended Dulin 2 / 1m STP *update Colts already extended Rhodes –played 87% snaps on a 1.5m contract resign 3m/year deal Muhammad (starter) – 4 / 3m first year Odum resign less than RFA 1m   Restricted Free Agents:  MAC UDFA – 2nd Round Tender 3.422m Pascal RFA 2nd Round tender 3.422m Smith ERFA 1 / 850 k STP   OTC says 74 players under contract and OTC Cap Room projected 9.322m for 2021   Draft Needs: LT, WR, LDE, SS, RB   Draft:   R1 LT Christian Darrisaw (Virginia Tech) – Long shot but my dream selection here and pending Combine could see him move higher in RD 1   R2 WR Nico Collins (Michigan) - 2019 led Big 10 receivers 0.0% drop rate and 81.3% contested catch rate and had the highest broken-tackle rate   R3 Edge/LB Charles Snowden (Virginia) - Snowden stands 6-foot-7. SAM linebacker blitzing / played both ends or more of a 3-4 OLB.  Great football awareness very solid in run support.  2018 breakout star along with Rock Ya.  With his size and speed like to switch him to 4-3 Edge.   R4 ILB Garret Wallow (TCU) Extremely athletic with impressive sideline-to-sideline speed and can lineup in the box, cover the slot and has a good grasp of where he should be in zone defense.   R5 SS Divine Deablo (Virginia Tech) - has elite size and excellent speed.  Very strong player/good tackler.  Bit tight in his hips limit his range but we need a decent backup and he should do fine.   R6 RB Devin Wynn (Furman) – Decent ground game.  Rarely used in pass plays.   R7 WR Emeka Emezie (NC St) - Z position size and speed to separate.  Willing blocker in Run game.  Impressive hands in contested engagements.  Impressive layout diving catch vs Virginia 6:13 3Q.  Originally struggled with dropped passes but cleaned that up this year.   UDFA MLB Blake Gallagher (Northwestern) – Bit on the small side 6’0” but one heck of a tackler in the open field.  All-Big 10 honors in 2018 after a campaign that saw him tally 127 stops (7.5 for a loss) and an interception.  Wisconsin game had a good QB strip for turnover.  Good chase angles and hustle down field.  Tip ball caused team INT.  Impressing blitz sack.  Looks good in both run, blitz and coverage support.   Overall a solid group to build upon.  For 2022 can see our focus on TEs, RCB and potentially LDE if we move Snowden to SLB.  Shall see how well Wallow does his rookie season before adjusting.  We got a young QB for long-term.   The Colts should be playoff contenders for many years.   3WR 1TE   QB Dak Prescott Jacob Eason   RB Jonathan Taylor Nyheim Hines Jordan Wilkins Devin Wynn   WR Nico Collins Emeka Emezie Ashton Dulin Gary Jennins   WR Michael Pittman Jr. Dezmon Patmon Quartney Davis   WR Zach Pascal Parris Campbell DeMichael Harris   TE Jack Doyle Trey Burton Mo Alie-Cox Noah Togiai   LT Christian Darrisaw Roderick Johnson   LG Quenton Nelson Joey Hunt   C Ryan Kelly Danny Pinter   RG Mark Glowinski Jake Eldrenkamp   RT Branden Smith Will Holden   Base 4-3 D   LDE Charles Snowden Ben Banogu Kemoko Turay   LDT DeForest Buckner Tyquan Lewis   RDT Grover Stewart Taylor Stallworth   RDE Al-Quadin Muhammad Dawuane Smoot Kemoko Turay   WLB Darius Leonard Matthew Adams   MLB Garret Wallow Zaire Franklin Jordan Glasgow   SLB Bobby Okereke E.J.

    • 36-minute mark.   His sources are solid.  I know that for a fact.
    • I'm over 20 minutes in and barely a word about Rivers.   Not even a tease that Bowen has inside info about how and why Rivers resigned so soon.     Nothing.   Sigh......   Ughhhh.....
