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

This aged well.......

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

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.

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.

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

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.

did luck do that his rookie year?

No he got beat by the Bears in his very first action.  Also many people thought Luck was elite and could have been one of the best ever if not for injuries so had he that backs up my point.

    • I really don't know what to think of Eason. I had predicted he will be our starter next season but who really knows? If he does become a starter I don't think we will all of a sudden be a down the field offense. We will still be pretty even between the run and the pass.  If Eason can just take what the other teams gives it could become what you may call dink and dunk but he will have the ability to go down field when it's open. 
    • Just because your O is conservative, or dink/dunk, doesn't mean you don't value a QB who has a strong arm. Reich does like to take the occasional shot, he's just not a "vertical" coach (which is a bit weird given all the time he spent in k-gun). And it does take arm strength to even go to the opposite side flat or intermediate sideline. I don't view Eason as a poor fit for a future with Reich. Underutilized perhaps, but not poor fit. Not a huge fan of Reich's scheme, but not a fan of Arians either. I'd prefer a happy medium.
    • If CB wants to trade up for a QB, he's likely going to need to go to 8 or higher. JAX (1), NYJ (2), ATL (4), DET (7) and CAR (8) all either ARE in the market, or COULD be in the market for a QB.  According to Draftek Pick Value Chart, we barely have the capital in this draft to get up to 8.  I generally put the following years picks a round back on this years value (i.e. 1st overall pick  in 2022 equal to 1st pick 2nd round this year) so if we add our 2021 1st and 2022 1st (likely reasonably early ~8th) and 2021 3rd, we might just be able to do it. I do see a world where those teams mentioned (other than JAX) go in different directions... JAX - Lawrence  NYJ - Sewell ATL - Paye DET - Parsons  CAR - Surtain  Which drops Fields to SF, Wilson to WAS and Lance to CHI.  Of course, this is highly unlikely because there aren't 32 Chris Ballard's as GM's and the rest of them will all reach like zombies. If anything, it's going to be a fun off-season. I hope we get a LT in FA and leave the QB to the draft. But like CB says... get the RIGHT one. Thanks for putting up with my ramblings 
    • IMO if he's turned the corner (behavior and health/weight wise), he'll get picked up somewhere. I just don't know he's turned the corner. Between arrests, injury, weight, etc., he's got a lot going on.  I think you'll see him get a lot of looks this off season, so I wouldn't put him in "last snap" category just yet. Seems like he's kept his nose clean (no pun intended) the last year, and has dropped weight. That's a start. I have zero clue how he's rebounded from the injury (IIRC ACL). 
    • I want the Bills and the Packers in the super bowl.  Super tired of Brady and Mahomes already has a ring. I think the Packers win and the Chiefs/Bills is a toss up.  The Chiefs haven't been as impressive as they were last year so I think the Bills have a good chance.
