Your Indianapolis Colts (3-2) look to return to winning ways when they face the Cincinnati Bengals (1-3-1) at home this Sunday. They will play this one without TE Mo Alie-Cox (Out), T Chaz Green (Out)

Keeping a player down when a team is running hurry up is unsportsmanlike conduct refs,  you’ve called every tricky tack call you can make against the Colts call the obvious ones on the bengals please.

Ahh Blackmon... fast becoming a gamechanger

So this isnt rocket science and its not by any means a defense of Rivers, but he is not being set up to succeed when we a) cannot run the ball b) defense plays like complete garbage and does nothing to disrupt what the opposition is trying to do.

 

This are the danger situations that cause him to force throws he can longer make and generate the INTs

do you really think Rivers is capable of taking this team to a super bowl?  Not even a chance

Do I think Andrew Luck could take this team to a Super Bowl the way they are playing right now?  Not even a chance.  So far today Rivers play hasn’t been a factor one way or another.  In fact the short passes from the QB is the one thing that’s gone well so far.

Our D is again, Charmin soft.

I called it in the matchup thread this week. I called it last week. 

 

Philip is 3 for 3 for those that can't help bashing him.... Good grief he has zero to do with what is happening. 

 

And Oke is looking horrid again. Can't wait till Leonard is back.

Not disagreeing with you but Rivers is mediocre at best.  But when we went to run the ball and we can’t like we have all year...you don’t have a chance with Rivers noodle arm unfortunately

I honestly am not even surprised. The Colts usually play to their level of competition. 
 

We can still come back, but we need to score on this drive. If we go down 3 scores, it's over. 
 

Reich is WAY too easy on the players. He looks like a biased father out there always making excuses for his guys. 
 

He needs to start expecting great football from his players. If they don't perform, LET THEM KNOW IT. 
 

we are so soft on offense.

I’m telling you, we just start punting on 3rd down. We’re gonna save some injuries over the long-term. 
 

Hey, where’s that rivers apologist who tried to tell me how good he was on 3rd down a couple weeks ago? Haven’t seen him around here giving rivers the proverbial mouth love lately...

doesn't matter. he's not the problem. his check downs average 9 yards a piece. 

and do you see how close Cinci is playing up on, and pressing our pass catchers. 

that is not, Charmin soft...

    • Goff isn't bad, probably above average but I would much rather get Stafford. 
    • So I’ve thought about it, and I’m at least willing to consider it as an option.   I’ve said all along that Phil knew that next year was it no matter what. So his plans for 2021 hinged on our plans because he wasn’t going to go somewhere else and go through the process of learning a new playbook, new coaches, new guys, all of that for just one season. Unless it was an unprecedented situation like the Chiefs trading us Mahomes for a 7th because Andy needs some Uncle Phil in his life.    And to his credit, Phil beat Father Time this year. But that just meant it was more likely that he didn’t next year. It’s a reasonable bet that Phil returning in 2021 wouldn’t be quite as good as Phil was in 2020. At his age that is the expectancy.    Maybe Ballard decided to build forward instead because of that. There’s plenty of people around here who say we’re still a couple of years away from being ready to compete for a SB. If Ballard agrees then I can definitely see him deciding to let Phil walk and get the new guy in here and get him comfortable. See what happens in 2021 so that in 2022 we feel like we’re truly ready to compete. Or at least on the very edge of being ready to by that point.    And Phil is a competitive guy. He wouldn’t have come here if he didn’t feel like we weren’t a playoff team. I just find it a bit surprising that he chose to walk away from a team that is ready to contend for the playoffs and could realistically get hot and go on a real run in the playoffs.    So yeah, I’m willing to believe it’s at least plausible that Ballard made the difficult decision to Ol’ Yeller Uncle Phil which forced Phil’s hand because it was us or nobody.    And as has been pointed out, Phil may even come out better for it. The discovery of his charisma in 2020 got noticed. And think about the market for a minute... Star QBs make the needles move the most. We’ve got a generation of QBs retiring and Phil is in a good spot. Manning won’t go into the booth. Brees probably won’t. Brady won’t. No one wants Ben. Eli wouldn’t be good. Rodgers is still too many years away. So Phil is the right guy for the right time in a way. He’s gonna wind up making damn good money in the announce booth working a whole lot less. Good for him. 
    • Look at it like this. Houston is in for a rebuild without Watson. They will have the draft capital for a quick rebuild if they do trade Watson. Culley will have his work cut out for him if Watson leaves regardless. If Culley fails and they part with him in 2-3 years, Houston still helped their image. If Watson stays, Culley will be under pressure immediately. Either way, it's up to him to sink or swim, but either way, Houston (the org) wins.
    • looks like Goff (& his insane contract) may now be in play too   IMO: no thanks, but maybe Ballard/Reich have a different opinion
