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...

    • Carson Wentz for a $1 doesn't even look appealing.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/all/cornerback/   I get what you're saying and tend to agree.  There may be some cuts so the list in the link above may not be 100% complete... but we have a pretty good idea of who is available in FA (another factor is if any of those guys get franchise tagged).     On the list above Xavier Rhodes, most of the guys are 29 or older (the exceptions being Mike Hilton 27, Michael Davis 26 and Mackensie Alexander 28).  So, not exactly a lot of quality 'young' guys out there (as of now anyway).  Several of the guys above Rhodes who are 29 are older also missed time in 2020 to injury (Josh Norman, Richard Sherman, DJ Hayden, Hilton, Alexander, Kevin Johnson, Brian Poole).  Then, Patrick Peterson is same age as Xavier, but he made >$11 mil more than him last year.   Ballard definitely seems to prefer taller guys on the outside CB spots... Hilton at 5'9" doesn't really fit Ballard's prototype... Davis at 6'2" seems to, and Alexander at 5'10" is kind of border line.  Ronald Darby (27) right below Rhodes is 5'11" so another borderline guy.     Obviously, Rhodes will have some ability to test the market... but I doubt he's going to be getting any offers which are significantly more than what we paid him last year.     Rhodes has familiarity with our DB coach from prior to Indy.  He fits our scheme well.  He played well here in 2020 and we likely won't have to break the bank on him.  I don't know we'll find a better option in FA based on who is available now.   CB is definitely a position where we need help (especially if we lose Rhodes)... but we also need to do something to address the QB issue, the OT void left by AC's retirement, overall OL depth, and DL (especially with Houston and Autry both being FAs and both being on the wrong side of 30).  More likely than not, we need to do something to address the WR position and TE position (could be as easy as resigning MAC and Burton).  We only have so many draft picks, and my guess is we'll go OT early... plus, CB is one of the toughest positions to thrive at as a rookie.     Ideally, we'd get younger across the board.. but we probably won't be able to do that... I could be wrong, but my guess it that we'll bring Rhodes back on another short term deal (maybe 2 years this time).
