All I know is that only 3 teams have a better record than us right now, and Rivers is playing well, not to mention 2 comebacks. 

It would be foolish not to bring him back if he maintains his current level of play. He's close to his 2018 level right now.

I agree with this 100%. If his level of play remains the same from now until the start of next season and he is willing to play one more for us, we should keep him and extend that window one more year. We'll still have Eason on the team and can sign a 3rd QB or draft one on day 3 maybe.

Several posters are so against bringing Rivers back for 1 more year.    This is the 2nd time  (Bengals) he has led HUGE double digit comeback.    Are you more open to another River

I don’t mean to split hairs....   But while freely admitting 2020 Rivers isn’t 2010 Rivers or even 2018 Rivers, he’s certainly much better than 2019 Rivers.  He’s having a very good year, an

I’m definitely not opposed to it. Ask me in 8 weeks

Last 2 weeks, Rivers has played like a pro bowler considering the teams we have played. We just beat 2 teams that are 7-3 back to back.

Yep, a lot of us on the forum were saying the Colts had an easy schedule and we were beating easy opponents, now they are proving they are for real. The Packers smacked us around in the 1st half, but we made 2nd half adjustments and the team balled out. Quality win today!

I think folks questioning the schedule, were questioning the D's ranking. I'm one of them. Any time you give up 300+ yards passing and 30+ points, you're D didn't play that well. They showed up in the second half at times, which was good. They were absent 1H in the last two games though.

I think so too. I think we are better Tennessee, not by much but we are as long we play smart and don't turn it over. Only KC and Pitt are better in the AFC, we actually beat ourselves vs the Ravens.

We beat ourselves all 3 games.

I was very vocal that people would be surprised when Rodgers scored at will on us today. He did just that in the first half and it looked bad. Luckily, we adjusted at halftime and turned the game around. Still, we have to play a full game in the playoffs Vs every team or we could make an early exit. My only small nitpick. Otherwise, they fought hard. Today showed we can be resilent, but the defense is probably a bit overrated and can be beat by a solid QB.

Me too, we should EASILY be 8-2 this year right now. That was such a blunder of a game tbh. I hate losing games against teams like that. We'll look back at that one when the Jags have 1 or 2 wins at the end of the year and comment how embarrassing it is lol! haha

The NFL is weird at times. We lost to the Jags but beat Tennessee and GB. :dunno:

Yep, that's why I said "can be". Rodgers and the Packers put up 31 points, which is usually enough to win, but not today. However, if the elite QBs put up that many points on average Vs us (hypothetically), we'll probably go 50/50 beating those teams. Not terrible, but it means the defense is still a bit overrated and we could improve the pass rush and CBs a bit more in the draft and FA next year.

He's playing great and getting better as the season goes.  Definitely bring him back with Eason as the backup.  I don't know why but I think Eason will surprise us all and be our new franchise QB after Rivers. 

I agree I have high hopes for Eason I love his arm.

Why?  I mean I am curious too but if Rivers is playing well and wants to comeback I don’t think you let a good QB walk unless you know for sure the guy you are replacing him with is better.

I would be ok with drafting O.Line in the 1st round, LT and maybe draft another Guard in round 3. O.Lineman are obviously very important. I would go WR in Round 2 eventhough I think Pittman will pan out. I doubt we draft a QB because if we win the division, I see Rivers coming back.

I couldn't agree more we need to find the replacement for Costanzo. We are lucky he came back this year.

I am a Chargers fan and #17 is the biggest reason that team has been competitive for years. River was never given a good Oline and yes like last year he had some horrible games but he is one of the reasons the Colts offense is running as well as it is this year. He should be brought back IMO.

Me too, but we get them again at home in Week 17, that game could win the AFC South for us or result in a higher seed in the playoffs if we've already locked it up.

I'm all for bringing Rivers next season if that's what he wants. He has improved as the season has gone on. That would give Eason more time to learn the ropes. maybe he would be the backup next season. 

Philip didn't like it much, but I'd say riding the pine behind Drew Brees for 2 seasons (with Doug Flute right beside him & in his ear for the 1st one) really helped him to be a better NFL QB, in addition to making him alot hungrier when he finally got his chance to play.

It's a tough situation, because the 2021 draft class is so good at QB. I don't know the 2022 class at QB yet, but this one has guys in the entire first round available to take. We do have some major holes though after this season most likely: QB, CB, EDGE, WR, and OT. So it's probably going to come down to what we fill in FA and the best players at a position of need in the draft early on.

Possibly but that also means a good LT could fall to us as well. I think the 2021 QB is gonna be the bench warming class to be honest. Last years class seems to be really good, outside of the Jets and Jags, and maybe the Broncos, there’s not a ton of desperate QB needy teams.  But there’s at least 6-7 with older QBs in their mid to late 30s. Tampa, Green Bay, New England, Pittsburgh, is, just to name a few.  Older guys who are playing good all things considered. Do one of those teams or more take some of these QBs and let them ride the pine for a few years? I think so.

The jury is still out on a Rivers return. But he is starting to make his case. I will render my verdict at season’s end. I want to see all of the evidence. Still lots of football to be played. 

No, you have to tell us now. Not at the end of the season, not a month from now, not next week, not tomorrow, NOW! You understand that. You aren't getting out of it that easy! haha I want to know, what's your verdict? Please, please please! :)

Yeah me too, I actually brought that up. Their win over us may prevent them from getting Lawrence. 

Well, Ballard didn't want Lawrence in the division, and he knew the Jets would go winless. Do you blame him? haha All part of the master plan to screw the Jags! :thmup:

I finally got my Magic 8-Ball back from the shop.  I shook it and it said "Ask Me Again".  I have a feeling it will keep saying that until the season is over.  But he has played much better the last 5 weeks than he did the first 5.  I'm not automatically opposed at this point, but would still prefer we bring in another young gun and let he and Eason battle it out.  But yeah, Old Man Rivers has NOT been the problem of late.

Cmon, persuade the magic 8 ball! I don't know its likes and desires, but get it to convey some better information. Beg, tell it that the world depends on it, feed its ego a bit. We need to know the answer and only the magic 8-ball can tell the future!

    • Leo Nard I know he is a all pro LB and he can and will set a record for highest paid LB on any team in the NFL.  I just don’t see it with Leo Nard though.  I don’t know maybe he doesn’t get the hype like LBers in the past has example Ray Lewis, T Suggs etc..  I don’t know I think we maybe be better off trading him for like 3 First Rounders and 1 third round draft pick.  Q omg we have to resign him I guess My priorities is OLINE first and Defense second?
    • I expect Houston to get signed by draft day. Whether it's by us or another team. Interestingly enough, I believe he's our last real option at EDGE before the draft. By not signing him yet, I'm thinking Ballard has interest in an EDGE rusher. I've heard we may have some interest in Azeez Ojulari. I like him, but I believe he is more of a 3-4 LBer, and we run a 4-3, so I really don't want to draft him. Seems like it'd be a reverse Bjoern Werner or Jerry Hughes situation all over again. Hoping to get Houston back, and either go Kwity Paye in the 1st and Eichenberg in the 2nd, or trade down all the way to the 2nd and get multiple picks that way (including a future pick), and a 3rd this year as well.
    • The poster you've responded to is not being stupid, he’s being sarcastic.     He’s unimpressed with Ballard because the Colts have not won the AFC South on his watch.   The poster is not interested in being patient.  He wants to win NOW!    Sooner than that if it’s possible.  
    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.
