Rivers vs. Brissett?

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.

If efficient you mean barely able to throw a football accurately than he's your man.

Yep, Rivers is Mike Pagel, it is all over :sarcasm:

Yeah I mean I get he's not Peyton, but there's a huge difference between a guy like Brissett and Rivers. If someone can't see that then that's on them.

He had a nearly 80% completion percentage coming into today’s game.  If that’s not accurate sign me up.
 

 

He played the number three ranked defense today without his second and third WR, with this top two tight ends working their way back from injury and without his starting running back.  He’s doing fine.

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. 

what did Hilton do wrong today. He was wide open and Rivers missed him. Most River throws down the field are LATE. Major QB problem.

I was never a fan of getting Rivers,I still believe he will have us picking in the lower twenties . I am surprised the SPCA isnt all over him,the way he was throwing ducks all over the field. Lets be honest,he looked his age today.

Makes up for the dime Rivers dropped in lap in the Vikings game that Hilton dropped.  Point being players make bad plays here and there.

I agree, by the eye test it is obvious. Rivers is better easily and I like JB.

Just to add on this..

 

Rivers won't be fooled by a look, intimidated if down in a game and he projects a great amount of confidence onto the team. 

Yes he has some bad throws, but if someone tells me Luck didn't have some ugly passes every game they're lying.

 

As long as Rivers doesn't become an interception machine we've got a chance with him every game.

I’d agree today was his worst day as a Colt but let’s factor in a few things.  It’s one game, anyone can have a bad game.  He hasn’t looked this way in the other three games so I am not going to freak out over one game.  He was playing the number three ranked defense in the NFL that played well they need credit too.  He also has a very beat up offense.  Still some of his passes today were ugly.  If it happens beyond today then maybe it’s something to worry about.  One game vs a really good defense who did a good job getting him off his spot is not.

 

Will he have them picking in the lower 20’s?  He might very well and that means the Colts had a good year.  That’s the name of the game.  Playing to lose builds a bad culture and it’s hard to fix that that’s not what Ballard is trying to build.

I agree 100%. I feel like with him we are never out of it, that is how I felt Luck and definitely Peyton.

    • I would rather offer them Frank & our 1st for their 1st & a 3rd & let the Frank & Wentz rebirth project happen in Philly.  We take that pick and get our QB this year.  CB picks his own coach (I’m sure he’s been hoping the Bears would have fired Nagy.  Nagy has same overall record as Frank over these 3 years (28-20) except he had no Luck or Rivers.  And he seemed like CB’s first choice back in the day.  And unlike Frank, he’s willing to relinquish play calling duties).  Or maybe we just promote Eberflus and bring in a young creative O.C. to grow with our new QB.  Regardless what we do, please no Reich & Wentz here.  That sounds like a Philly Special. 
    • It really doesn't force anything. They could do the same thing (stop gap) again. They could draft another dice roll again. They could try to trade for a vet with questions... And if they swing and miss, could be JB again......    Some things I'm sure could work out, but some things might not. We were very close to a 13-3 season (minus silly stuff vs Jax and Pit) and a #2 playoff spot. I would have been more than happy to build off last year with PR again with better chemistry now with pass catchers, and a more mature RB.
    • Except we won't win anything for a couple of years.  By that time IMO, our group here will be disperesed.  We won't be able to pay the line, Leonard, etc.  We could conceivably retool over that time and be as strong, but I wouldn't bank on that.   If we are going rookie, I'd rather see us trade some real assets and go ahead and rebuild the thing.  Reset the thing.   I hope we get a good vet.  Who that is and how we can afford the draft capital, I am just clueless.      
    • Ballard refused to commit to him being a back up let alone starter. Eason is probably not playing this year either unless something really funky happens. 
    • Kevin Bowen said the same thing on his pod today. Colts fans should be happy because it now forces their hand.
