Please don't make me watch Jacoby Brissett play again. I'd rather see Rivers throw 5 picks a game than fall asleep watching Brissett dink and dunk his way to an 8-8 record and an uneventful 16th overa

I wish he wasn’t here at all. 4 TDs in 5 games is awfulllll. He might be more immobile than Brady at this point in their career.    He can’t even throw the ball 30 yards with zip on it! I truly

Chad Kelly is better than Rivers

His mistakes have costed us two games thus far

The other option is Jacoby.

Phillip Rivers gets this season.   Unless he gets hurt.    Otherwise.....

 

The biggest problems we have are elsewhere...    an under-achieving O-line and now a lack of weapons.   We lost to a good team, there’s no shame here. 
 

But it’s a long season...   a little patience and confidence would help around here....

i dont get the people who picked until the season is over .  So if rivers the next 10 games throws 4 or 5 picks a game averages 150 passing yards 1 touchdown and a 30 QBR  and loses 11 games in a row .  You wouldnt wanna put eason in for the last game ?

if that happened Jacoby would start

They’ve got to start him all year but I’m glad people are coming around. I said before the the year he was cooked and got reamed. I’ll gladly accept apologies from everyone who personally attacked me.

you were right , i never thought rivers was good though . i just thought our wide receivers were not as bad . i still dont think they are i think rivers just is horrible

He is the best option we have and unfortunately the best option during the off-season. I wasn’t comfortable with trading up for Tua or Herbert bc the price would of been too high and Love was an absolute no.  
 

Really no choice but to roll with Rivers to the end. Decent chance we will make the playoffs but just missing them is also very realistic.  It’s a QB driven league and we have an average guy leading the huddle. If the ground game can get going and the defense continues to get better we can make the playoffs and win a game or two.  These young guys need to step up and help carry the team. I’ve been saying for months this team is average but has potential.  Going to have games like this

Oh you don’t think Brady or Cam Newton were better options?

how does that make sense jacoby is off the team next year.  eason is the future , if the colts are out of the playoffs why play someone who is not gonna be here instead of giving reps to the future QB . 

There's literally no reason to rush Eason into starting

    • Yeah... the newer analytics, if you trust them, by companies like PFF suggest the most valuable positions are the ones most tightly linked to the passing game are the ones that are most valuable ones - meaning, on offense - QB, WR... OT(because they are the hardest OL positions, a lot of one on one pass-protection work) and on defense - CB, EDGE pass-rushers, S... DTs can be valuable too, but they need to have considerable pass-rush production and most of them don't - because the inside is clogged and players get double teamed more easily, etc. The Aaron Donalds of the world are very very rare. I wonder how Buckner grades in their WAR system. He's one of the best interior rushers in the league, but still probably doesn't rank very high when you include all the other positions on the field. I know Aaron Donald' value in their system was about the same as that of an average QB. Just an illustration of how important the QB position is - an average to below average QB gives you the same value as the best interior rusher of this generation. 
    • I would just go with some under the radar guy on a bargain contract... those seem to be the types Ballard goes for. Or someone who was released before FA starts(so it wouldn't count towards compensatory picks formula).   So... I will wait for the cuts to start and pick one of those then... 
    • If the OT class sucked i would be ok with this but it doesn't    Hope we get LT in draft
    • I'm not gonna make excuses for Wentz, but everyone leads in different ways. Peyton was demanding, while Andrew was more nonchalant and dad like. 
    • About 1 hour 21 min into this 2 former teammates of Carson talk about him (FYI, there are a few curse words throughout the podcast):  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/malcolm-jenkins-on-activism-saints-eagles-trash-talking/id1485277290?i=1000510312176   They say he's not a locker room cancer.  He's a nice guy.  He didn't have to be a leader early in Philly - Jenkins says "his rookie year, we just asked him to be a rookie QB rather than be a leader..." essentially they had enough vet leaders.  Chris Long says he never  thought of Wentz as a jerk, but his rookie year and his MVP level year, he never thought about Carson being a leader, just thought "this QB is very good" and essentially that the team of veteran guys and looking back the only thing he could think is Wentz could reach out to guys across the whole team, rather than just producing well on field... says Nick Foles not a great QB, but Foles had a magnetism about him that made him appear like the leader of that SB team when Carson went down.
