The bears are really good on defense and he has one real weapon at WR who has not been playing well give him some slack.

I'm not busting on Rivers, I'm stating a fact... What is Rivers overall yards average through 4 games like 250 a game or less? That's Brissett production

Rivers is doing his job. Better than Brissett. Not really his fault that our guys drop balls and Hilton is playing like a shell of his former self. The idea was that Pittman would be our end zone threat. With him and Campbell being out, who is left? Every team is going to double Hilton/Doyle/Mac in the end zone now. 
 

Just relax and stop looking for things to complain about when we’re winning on all sides of the game right now.

Go look at his yards per attempt. I think you will find he is light years better then Brissett was. More plays 20 yards or more.

Rivers had a near 80% completion percentage coming into today and can get the ball down the field.  That is not Jacoby level production.  He has so few yards because he doesn’t have to throw.  The one game he put it in the air 40 times he had two picks and the Colts lost.

I'm sure that's true, but what is the overall average of yards per game? I understand we are running it a lot, but still, weren't you expecting Rivers to be at least 300 a game with at least 2-3 TD's each week?

No then we would have gotten Winston.. we need a smart QB that can read the D get the ball out fast, or hand it to the RB. We dont need a gunslinger.

Don't bother brother, too many blind rivers followers here. Not worth the effort to type. 

It’s not blind Rivers followers it’s that he’s being efficient.  Is he Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck at this point in his career?  No, but the Colts have put a team around him that doesn’t require him to be either.  He’s an upgrade over Jacoby and that’s what this team needed.

Why did we give up 18mil to Rivers to get Brissett production?

 

Week 5 upcoming and we have a much more expensive Brissett under center... :facepalm:

 

I don’t usually break this out, but dang man, enough already today. Enjoy the win.

Not sure you understand the difference between opinion and fact.

Do you watch the games? Or do you just look up stats?

Yes I am over the people who feel like they have to trash the Colts every week.  They are 3-1 they are doing something right.

    • No thanks... Rudolph is terrible   He's another Jack Doyle type and YES Doyle must go by hopefully a trade to get us at least a 5th
    • Really appreciate the thoughts - well thought out.  I'm always interested in hearing the mocks of others on this forum.  It always makes me identify how my assumptions are different than others here.   As far as yours goes, you seem to be willing to go with a pretty low investment to replace Costanzo.  But you're highly concerned about the CB situation.  I'm the exact opposite.  I think Ya-Sin and Marvell Tell are going to take steps forward this year, so I'm willing to add a boundary guy pretty late this year and let Rhodes go (Ballard doesn't like to buy high).  I personally like the idea of signing a low-cost swing tackle (Haeg, Roderick Johnson) as insurance, and then add a LT as our first pick in the draft.  I'd also expect trade-downs, though.  Like, trade down to the first part of the 2nd and target Dillon Radunz or Walker Little...
    • Chris went to 7 Pro bowls and was all pro 4 times in Indy.    Plus,   the ring was pretty bare when he went up.   I have no problem with AC going up BTW 
    • Are you serious?  Hinton was a 7 time Pro Bowler, 5 time All Pro.    Castonzo was a solid player, a solid player who got a little better with age.  AC was a good Colt, but should be replaceable with #21.
    • Well thought out mock. Some of the additions I am not the biggest fan of(Ertz), but I can see them happening so, can't really beef with it too much.    I would also prefer we didn't spend a R2 pick on a run stuffing DT after paying 2 DTs long-term big money last year.    Other than that - love Newsome pick up, love Christiansen at that spot in the draft. Like the Patrick Jones pick. Love Deatrich Wise at that money. Overall very solid mock. Good job.
