Yes he had bad pick but there's no Colts win without Phil today.    Can we go 1 week without a bench Rivers thread?

Rivers was down 21-0, came back like Luck would. Rivers 3 TD's and 371 Yards, Colts win baby! Colts now 4-2. The difference between being 3-3 and 4-2 is huge. Rivers haters can go kick rocks this week

Instead of eating crow, the usual suspects are in here moving the goalposts and reaching harder than you would think is possible.   What a joke.  Rivers made you all look dumb as hell today.

rivers had a nice game but still needs to improve .  the whole team needs to get better over the bye week .   I think the colts over achieved with a easy schedule , and after the bye the schedule gets really tough .  my worry is the colts go down hill like last year when they went 5-2 .    Rivers has to stop throwing picks , its hard to win throwing so many .    If he can stop the picks the colts have a chance to make the playoffs .

I will eat crow he played well today. Its not that I am not rooting for him but i will be a harsh critic. Today he played lights out other than the one pick and the 1st quarter. Good for him and us. Although overall for the second time we have struggled with a team that will likely be fighting for the 1st overall draft pick. That is a bit alarming.

The read was bad, but the defender just played it well. The announcers even mentioned that during the replay.

He kept the Colts in the game today.  Great game from him today.  This was why they paid him that money.  Jacoby or Eason don’t make that comeback.  He deserved the heat he got last week and deserves all the praise he should get this week.

that's not a fair statement to make Eason hasn't even played a down yet

Let this be a lesson to you all

BTW Taylor had 5.0 YPC today his best yet

Taylor looked beast mode a couple times. I think as things slow down for him, he’s gonna show why he’s considered the steal of the draft

After rivers bailed the defenses behind out today.

just saying the colts get going on offense, then get going on defense. do all that work.

 

and then, with a 1 pt lead and getting the ball back with a short field. rivers throws incomplete, then forces it deep and gets picked off

 

then the colts got lucky with a missed field goal and then Rivers missed a wide open walk in TD deep because Rivers overthrows him then can't convert a 3rd and 4 to keep the ball and eat clock and move the chains

 

he's OK... he still tried to implode

See this is the problem. Ppl beating their chest after a good game as if the criticism for Rivers wasn’t warranted. He played great outside of the interception for sure. Kudos to him tho

The difference was I never talked crap about Rivers

Yeah rivers made a poor decision on one throw...he’s human.  
 

the defense got them in a 21-0 hole.  If it hadn’t been for Rivers the Colts get blown out today.

It's the Bengals. Let's not get overzealous. This game should have never been this close

And why was it close?  Oh that’s right the “elite” defense everyone has been praising spotted the Bengals a 21-0 nothing lead and Rivers came out and did what a lot of people were saying he couldn’t do anymore period.  If people want to be highly critical of Rivers last week, myself included, you have to give him credit when he plays a game many didn’t think he still could regardless of who it’s against.

Cincy is better than their record indicates. Look at Houston. They are 0-5 now but took Tennessee to their limit, and if not for Henry being a monster, they don’t win. Yes, it should not have been this close, but that’s the NFL.

    • This^    Pretty much exactly what I was thinking, and what I believe Ballard is doing
    • Trading for Buckner was a great move.  Seems like you don't like it. 
    • That's what destroyed our talent with Grigson and aside from injuries that's what has hurt the eagles since they won the Super Bowl. Sure you can go all out to try to win one Super Bowl or you can do what Ballard is doing and creating an organization that will win multiple, if you want great things patience is key.
    • Because QB, and QB INTs are the easiest bright shiny object to go after if you're too lazy to compare vs the league, or unable to subjectively critique all aspects and context.
    • We’ve had our share of “dancing” RBs.  I’ll take Taylor’s style over that every time.  He gets the yards that are there.   Give him some time, the big runs are coming.  If he gets more consistent blocking on the 2nd level, like from the WRs, his average will increase.  But the guy rarely loses yards, has the necessary speed, can power thru guys when necessary, and has been very exciting on screens and short passes.  He’s had a good number of big gains that way.   Losing Pittman and Campbell has affected more of this offense than i think we realize. Pitt is the “Funchess” of last year. Remember how important that chess piece loss was a year ago?  And Campbell was the guy that could extend the field .... quickly.  With those two on the field, i’d love to see some defenses stack the box.   I also think Ds may stack more because of Rivers immobility than being unable to throw downfield.  Rivers cant extend plays like others, cutting down the time DBs need to cover.  Add in Reich’s love of quick hitting passes and RBs and TEs heavily utilized in passing and it makes sense forDs to favor playing more guys up.
