People complain just to complain


Recommended Posts

Manning led this team to dominance for years and people whined constantly about having an average D.

 

Now the D for a change is playing well but all people wanna do is complain about Rivers. 

 

I understand the frustration as a fan but you gotta learn to take it like a champion.

 

You cant win them all and its not the end of the world when the Colts lose.

We're American, it's definitely in our DNA :)...

 

I agree though. I'd be a bit more annoyed if we were front runners, but in reality NOBODY is picking us for a SB except Colts fans.

 

Just enjoy the season is my motto. It's gone before you know it every year. 

 

Next stage will be the 'let's tank' talk as soon as we hit .500.

honestly, even the complaining is a nice change of pace from real life these days

Yeah I don't even mind it either. This place actually gets my mind off the Covid and the election, etc.. We still have a good team to boot, can't lose to the Bengals though. We lose to the Bengals, my guess is you will be deleting some posts Lmao Lol GIF by Originals

People 100% appreciated the Peyton years and how fun it was. However, wishing they won more rings, being upset with the lack of supporting defense and voicing that frustration isn’t whining. 
 

People not liking what they see from the offense especially the QB and voicing that isn’t a problem. If someone feels they’ve seen enough of Rivers already, they can def voice that. Just like you can voice your trust in Reich, Ballard, and Rivers etc...

 

Not singing the same tune as you isn’t whining.

This turned into another Rivers thread soooo, I removed those posts and locked this thread.

If you would like to talk about Rivers, you have other threads here to do that

Honestly, I enjoyed the Browns game.  We weren't good enough but it wasn't boring

Way too much boredom these days.

You're right though.......because I enjoyed the peace and happiness around here after the bears game.

    • I'd throw Pittsburgh in there too. 
    • The red zone % can be misleading. Looking at that, one would not expect 7-3.  I find our offensive rz % more concerning than our defensive #. However, ifYOUR offense is in rz more often than opponent, and THEIR offense is kept out of rz more than your offense, you can better afford these #s.   Concerning, yes, but i would argue, at 7-3, there is more going on than rz % by itself. 
    • ? Rivers is the QB and the leader of this team. Yes the strong point of our team is the defense but it it still the offense that scores the points to win.  I agree that no one player is responsible but his veterans leadership means more than you want to give any credit.  Just because he is not a Mahomes or a Wilson does not devalue what he is to this team.  With the help of the defense he pretty much equaled Rogers this last week.  He has already done more for this team than a lot of fans thought he would. 
    • I don’t mean to split hairs....   But while freely admitting 2020 Rivers isn’t 2010 Rivers or even 2018 Rivers, he’s certainly much better than 2019 Rivers.  He’s having a very good year, and he’s doing that without the weapons that other QB’s have.   And he’s doing it without the expected running game until this week.      2020 Rivers is also clearly better than 2019 Brissett, so I’m not ready to discount his responsibility for our current 7-3.  I agree things could still come off the rails.   I agree that the defense and ST get equal or greater credit, but still...   Rivers is driving our offensive train in a way JB could not.  So it feels that at least thru 10 weeks, at least, he’s deserving of more credit than you’re currently offering.    Did I thread that very small needle?    
    • When I was watching it on TV it seemed like there were a lot of Packers there but it seemed like 50/50 to me. Our crowd got loud when we were on defense at the end of regulation and in OT. 50/50 is still bad for a home team but it was noisy for the Colts at times too.
