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.

    • This is such nonsense and you know it is nonsense. Who the hell is Rob Demovsky(an Aaron Rodgers loyalist trying to keep Rodgers with the Packers) and why should I take his opinion on Love over what I've seen of him and numerous others have seen of him pre-draft... and what made the Packers trade up for him. Accuracy was never a major knock on him. When kept clean he was acutally one of the most accurate QBs in college football. It was his  decisionmaking that he was dragged for. "nothing [Love] has shown, at least publicly, would suggest he's ready to replace Rodgers". Now ask yourself what has Rob Demovsky seen publicly of Jordan Love? He's seen NOTHING... or close to nothing since camp. He's seen about as much of him as Kevin Bowen and Stephen Holder and me and you have seen of Jacob Eason... NOTHING. I would bet you he's not seen more than about 20-30 throws Jordan Love has made since entering the NFL and that's in a practice setting.    And since you are calling me out by name for things I've never said I would like to point out that I never said he would be the "second coming of Mahomes". When I'm throwing out comparisons I've said multiple times that I'm doing a stylistic/traits comparison and not an expectation of similar or better success. So yes... Jordan Love plays incredibly similar style to Mahomes, but there are obviously reasons why he wasn't drafted no.1 or hell even no. 10 where Mahomes went.    And one more thing - Jordan Love very well might bust. The reasons for that could be many. Either way... it won't be my first miss and it won't be my last miss. What was the point of that snarky call out though? NFL GMs miss on about 50% of their early round picks and 70-90% of their mid-late round picks... I promise you I won't be better than them and I have no illusions about it. I'm here to have fun and talk Colts and football,including draft prospects.  with other Colts fans. I don't think this type of snark is helpful though.       
    • From Brady’s media availability today:        
    • I wouldn't sweat it. There are folks that are realistic that realize that without a player involved, the Lions will get a first rounder at least for Stafford. Like with Buckner for 4 years, giving up a 1st rounder for 4 years at least of quality QB play, if the Colts feel they will get it after their evaluation of Stafford, is a no brainer to me.    If we are getting Carl Lawson in FA and are rostering Houston, Lewis, Turay and Banogu, I would rather go for a WR in Round 3. We might get a quality one then.  Also, a LB on Day 3 would be nice. 
    • I read that Kansas City is 19 million over the salary cap, so they will have to make changes within the organization. A few top players will still be there, but the team will lose many to free agency. KC might not be as dominant a year or two from now. Also, other teams will eventually figure out the Chiefs' play calling and adjust accordingly.
