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.

Yes, very well put

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

Yes. Where have I not made it clear, crystal clear, that I don’t like Rivers? I even said that and still, somehow, here we are. I can’t wait until this Rivers experiment is over. 

 

I hate Phillip Rivers.

 

Now, where is the disconnect?

He threw some crisp/beautifully placed passes. He was also the poised leader we needed him to be today.

 

I’ve been one of the people saying he’s shown diminished arm strength, or at least inconsistent arm strength. But really I think it comes down to whether he’s being pressured or not. I mean, I also think his arm is consistent, but if Rivers has time/can step into it, he’s good to go.

 

Still, I think his lack of mobility is a killer at times. But he does navigate the pocket and usually evades initial pressure well.

Trying to force a connection with TY has been part of Rivers' problem, to date.  It's time to give up on that and just feed Johnson, Burton or whoever.

 

I still think you can win with Rivers over the next few years, but the O-line and defense have to be better and more consistent.  I've heard Kevin Bowen and others say his arm is dead.  I don't see it.  He had a pretty live arm today.  Don't confuse an unorthodox looking pass with a dead arm.

I agree. Someone else pointed it out but the real key is for him to have time and be able to plant and throw. He’s not like Rodgers or Mahomes that can throw darts from any position. It’s not a knock necessarily but it just shows that they need to keep him protected.

I agree it’s no mistake that his mistakes come when he’s under pressure.  He needs a clean pocket.

The deep throw to Johnson was what really started to turn things around. I also noticed his velocity was better today compared to Cleveland.

 

I have to wonder how different the first half would have been if Doyle held on to the ball.

He was good enough today.  Really only a couple of throws I had a problem with:  the INT and the overthrow of Johnson for the TD.  Other than that, he was legit today.  The defense let the team down in the first half, then got their crap together thankfully.

They can trade Watson for 2nd rounder lol

I mean if they want to trade him for a second rounder quick get Chris Ballard whoever is running them their number.  Dang it O’Brien you couldn’t hold on until the trade deadline...

More for a quarter.  They gave up six points the rest of the way.

4-2 is good going into the bye. We needed this win bad. Time to get healthy over the next two weeks. We'll need our players from now on.

At the beginning of the year, how many here would’ve been right pleased to be sitting at 4-2, I wonderrrrrrr.

This was a must win and we got it. When we were down 21-0 I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Great comeback brother.

I would have said 4-2, maybe 5-1.  I would have flipped the Jags and Vikings game and said the Browns was a toss up.  Still this isn’t the part of the schedule I was worried about.  That’s still to come.  Remember the Colts were 5-2 last year when things feel apart.  They could be in the same position this year if they beat the Lions.  Hopefully they learned from last year.

I had us at 4-2 to start the season so I am right on cue. It looked bad early though. I had us losing to the Vikings and Browns though in the 1st 6. We beat the Vikings but lost to the Jags so it offset anyway.

I thought 4-2 was the worst-case scenario at the beginning of the year. Now I'm happy to be at this point at the bye. We need to do some damage to do some good teams to make the playoffs, but if you think about it, a 5-5 record makes us 9-7 in a year with a 7 seed. That's probably good enough. I think that's a fair goal for the next ten games as a fan. Anything else is gravy and can win us the division (though the Titans are tough right now).

I think we beat the Lions, sweep the Texans, beat the Jags 2nd time around and split with the Titans. That is 9 wins anyway at worse.

I think Titans take South Colts fight for 6 or 7

Who won again?  Oh yeah the Colts.  If you are tanking why do you comeback from 21-0?

Let's give this some thought . The Colts (The best D on paper) were impotent on both sides of the ball unable to accomplish a single thing so it was 14-0. Then the first play of the second quarters it was 21-0 against who? A team in the AFC North cellar where they have been there for about forever. Add to that fact they have lost a game to another cellar dweller in the Jags. The Jags!! When you watch the other team score repeatedly while you do nothing it is called tanking.

Riiiiiight, they are tanking they decided to beat the Jets the team that looks like a lock for the number one over all draft pick and they had the bengals right where they wanted them and just stink at tanking so bad they screwed up...

 

you can’t be serious about this whole tanking thing.

The Colts aren't tanking this year, they are just an inconsistent team. The Jets are tanking, the 2011 Colts were tanking for Luck, this is an average team IMO.

Football is a 60m game 

We played bad for half of it

The other half we made the plays to win

We can hope so but the meat of their schedule start after the Lions game which could be tough. No excuse for having to play catch up. None.

Yep, teams are forcing us to beat them with someone other than TY and Rivers adjusted by throwing TDs to Pascal and the TEs. Finally, I saw some early down passing called by Frank. I’d like to see that continue even if the game script is positive with us having a lead.

 

Our D played Jekyll and Hyde again, getting annoyed with it.

    • He is 33 and has 2 years left on reasonable contract. After that you will have to give him a contract in the realm of what other top QBs are getting now and he will be getting older... So you will either have to pay big or lose him and this is while all our young pieces are moving out of their rookie contracts... So we will start losing some of them. So IMO IF we get Stafford this will be the golden window to try to go all in...  Use Stafford's best remaining years at the best contract you will have him at, to try to surround him with best talent we can get while our young player are still cheap. Later he will be older/worse on worse contract and our young studs we either be paid much more (less money to get reinforcement elsewhere) or will be gone.    So... Go all in NOW. This doesn't mean you concede the later years, but IMO the best chance we have are the next 2 years if we get Stafford. This is legitimate Superbowl contender if we can get one of the top receivers, a very good pass-rusher and some solid CBs. 
    • Odds are you can’t do all that because the salary cap is going down roughly $15-20 million.    We’re likely going to need more time.   I don’t understand the 2-year window reference?   Stafford likely has 5+ years left.   With a GM like Ballard, our window should remain open longer than that. 
    • My thoughts on trading for Stafford are crystalizing a bit... I've stated before that my favorite option is going to the draft trying to get your QB of the future, BUT ... If you go for Stafford, IMO you need to go all in. It should not be the final big move of the off-season if we get Stafford. You move money around and you do everything you can do to get: - Allen Robinson or Godwin or Kenny Golladay. - a legitimate DE in FA or trade - Rhodes back + maybe even one more corner.   It might become tight money wise but IMO you cannot go the Stafford route and do it halfway. You either go all the way or don't even try it... Just go get a QB from the draft and build around him for the future. We will have about 2 year window with Stafford on reasonable contract and we need to use that window...      
    • The rumor that Lions and Stafford might both want to split up makes me warm up to getting him for a couple of years until we figure out the long term solution. But I don’t want to give up a first round pick so we need to be patient and if it works out, great, if someone else want to pay dearly for Stanford, we should immediately bow out of the bidding war.
    • SF are only in the driving seat if Stafford is willing to go there and The Lions are willing to trade to them, maybe they would prefer he didn't go to another NFC team.....I suspect the trade will have to suit both parties and Stafford will want to go to the team that gives him the best chance to win now and maybe the cap space to give him the money he wants.
