Is it time to move on from Hilton?

Or you draft another QB.  A fourth pick isn’t a guy you have to give a chance too.  If the Colts let Rivers walk or he hangs them up there is a good chance the Colts take a QB high and let them battle it out with Eason for the starting job and the other becomes the backup.  Remember Jacoby is probably gone too so the Colts are going to have to do something about the backup slot at least even if you go with Eason and while I know people are going to say but they have Kelly my guess is they will want a more experienced vet to help mentor Eason.  
 

With that all said I expect them to keep Rivers if he keeps playing like has the past couple of weeks.  

I agree. If Rivers does not return the Colts will be looking for 2 other QBs. 

If he does return they will be at least looking for one. They may pick one up in the draft in a later round?

should have moved on in 2019 when I made thread about trading ty

He needs to be option 2 or 3. Having him at the 1 isn’t the move anymore. Maybe move him to the slot for most of his plays

Don't get me wrong. I'm the biggest Hilton fan, however the production is just not there without Luck. He hasn't had a 100 yard game for 16 straight games now following another lackluster performance.

Hilton is far more savvy than he gets credit for.

 

the biggest difference fri. Hilton I saw in this game was he just didn’t seem to want it.

 

even when he didn’t get the flags he was just kind of indifferent!

 

very odd, doesn’t look like a physical decline to me definitely more mental.

 

any one else notice this?

I'm with you.  I have said this since week 1.  Biggest disappointment this year is Hilton playing with no heart or passion.  Just looks like his head is somewhere else this year...

I can't see Ballard using a first on a WR

 

Maybe that is why we don't have a #1 WR on the team.  At some point the trenches are built and we need to get a real, must double team every snap, threat at WR.

The trenches should continue being built continuously IMO

Or he just isn't having the ball thrown to him much this season. Hard to know what's going on with Hilton in his head.

I agree, to an extent. Trenches can be built up but if you're relying on lower end talent to throw the ball to, eventually it won't matter how good the O/Dline is.

I said that , with parris out we needed to move Hilton to the slot. It’s not a knock on him he has been a great player for us but at this point in his career he is just not as quick and doesn’t have the same speed he once had, Even his hands was questionable at times this year with easy drops. Now can he still be effective yes I think he can but at this point I don’t see him winning the match up against the opponent top Cb.

We need to upgrade the TE position more than wr I think , the biggest issue I see with the wr group is we just don’t have someone to legitimately take the top off the defense after losing parris. Ty just doesn’t have that ability anymore so a lot of our passes are contested catch not the easy run by a guy type passes. And to me when u don’t have a guy that can take the top off of the defense it’s like a trickle down effect defenses play tighter coverage, LB cheat up more etc...

One thing to keep in mind is Rivers does not have a rocket arm and don't go down field as much as Luck did thus TY over the top is not as prevalent. 

It's hard to tell if TY has lost his ability when he is not used like Luck used him. 

We as an offense don't go downfield or over the top like we used to.

TY is and always has been a speed guy. He is a great WR but unfortunately age will catch up to him and the speed goes away.  Other great WR as they get old can rely on there positioning aka height when it comes to catching the ball.  TY doesn’t have the luxury he is all speed.

Watching every game this year Ty looks a step or two slower

Its called getting old. The passion and heart may be there, but the legs are not.

There is still 10 more games. I believe my guy will come around.

Agree , it's just been circumstances---dinged up, game situations, corner covering him, etc.  I also feel that he has had something bothering him like either the Colts didn't lock him up already <<OR>> a hammy or something minor causing a slow up.  He WILL be back with a vengeance because that's the type of guy he is, and he is still lighting fast.

    • It sounds like the problem is Easterby.   I've watched a few videos and read some articles.    The players hate this guy.    
    • He didn't have a problem with having Foles as his backup. 
    • It’s gonna be really interesting to see what direction we go with Wentz’s primary back-up this year.  We’ve read that he had a real problem with Hurts nipping at his heels last year, but that might be a little overstated by the media. Nonetheless, re-signing locker room favorite Brissett might not be the best thing for the apparently insecure Wentz.  Likewise, if we signed a veteran like Andy Dalton, it could threaten Wentz’s job if he struggles early on.  It might be a good idea to go all-in on Wentz by intentionally backing him up with younger, inexperienced QBs who aren’t a threat to his starting position.  Of course, he’s spent a lot of his career injured, so a Dalton-like back-up could potentially save the season.  It’s a tough call.  I think I’d sign an Andy Dalton and hope Wentz has the character to understand that level of depth is best for the team...
    • I think we should consider drafting a hybrid SS/LB to pair with Leonard.  Maybe simply draft a new WILL, and move Leonard to MIKE.    I think we can do better than Willis and Oke.  We still seem to give up too much in the middle, and having a stud Hybrid player matched with Leonard will better secure the middle of the field on all three downs.  JMO.  Then get another FS who would cheat to the deep side. (maybe that's Tell)  And Blackmon can cheat towards roam the underneath more like Bob Sanders used to.   If we went OT at 21, then a speedy back-seven hybrid guy at 54, that would be great.   Will have to do more study on the players you mentioned.
    • Being a fan going all the way back to the great year of 2011 I can surely say this is the best team the Colts have ever had.
