Rivers requires surgery on his foot (Merged)


Recommended Posts

I could see this causing Rivers to hang the cleats up after this season now.

 

There was a good chance anyway,  it this has to increase it, IMO.

That doesn't sound good... seems like a lot of people underestimate how important that is. It's not just about his ability to move(both in the pocket and less so outside the pocket), it's more about his ability to plant and have a stable base to deliver his throws with. No wonder he looked out of sorts last week... IMO at some point in the coming weeks it's very possible the question of whether Jacoby or injured Rivers gives us the best chance to win will stand ahead of Reich and Ballard. That's some horrible luck. Rivers has not missed many games in his career and then comes here and we got... this... :(

And doing it blocking none the less.

For 25million and playoffs on the line, he better tape that thing up and go win some ball games.     Seriously tho, that is one tough 38yr old.  I’m still whining about the cut I got on my thum

If Rivers is having surgery after the end of the season, then, in my opinion, he is having surgery after the end of his career.

Or Darnold. He only would cost $4.7m for us plus whatever draft pick we would be trading.

 

So essentially he would cost us $3.5-$4m, when you figure in his $4.7m then subtract the cost of whatever draft pick we would send out.

I don’t get what others see in Darnold

I'm not completely sold on him but wouldn't be too upset about it 

 

It would be hilarious if we did that

At that price it would be worth a look at him.

 

He has the tools, just been in about the worst spot to try and succeed.

I would keep him on short leash and don't hesitate to replace him with Eason 

Well he would only have next year on his deal, however he does have a 5th yr option that would cost $25m.

 

Im sure, again at that price, he would be coming in to compete woth Eason.

 

Probably best to save this for another thread though.

 

 

Hopefully Rivers can finish out the year.

Yup, Darnold makes the most sense if Rivers decides to retire.

If Rivers hangs it up, Jacoby likely goes elsewhere to chase money (Not that people will be clamoring maybe Saints depending if Brees hangs it up as Hill isnt looking good at all and Winston cant even see the field) but I would guess a vet comes in as a stopgap before Eason takes over or at the least battles him for the starting spot. Would think someone who is in a prove it mode and team goes different direction : Andy Dalton, Winston,Trubisky perhaps even Garrappolo

I’m almost sure this story is false.

 

Afterall, one of our leading posters announced yesterday that Rivers was fine because he wasn’t on the injury report all this week.   And added that the story was badly overblown.

 

This story has to be false.   Doesn’t it?

 

Well, doesn’t it?!?    No?       :peek:

... or until the painkillers wore off? 

So they wore off the exact same drive AC went out. Nah

Seriously tho, that is one tough 38yr old.  I’m still whining about the cut I got on my thumb working last week. 

He'll be 39 on Tuesday, but his foot is most likely an offseason issue. He's real tough, he'll  fight through it and take this team as far as he can.

I doubt that, if he has it in mid to late February, he's got months to recover & rehab before he's even expected to do any running or throwing - I still think he's back next season, and starting for us.

It was also reported he will likely require it AFTER the season and that its basically really bad turf toe.  You can play through that depending on your pain tolerance.  It’s not ideal but not the end of the world either. 


Yeah I remember when I needed to get ankle surgery but had to wait a week. The first few days were brutal but towards the end of the week I sorta got used to the pain. Rivers is one tough dude he’s played through worse injuries.

Yep and given the ways the NFL has ways to mask pain with numbing shots I expect him to play.  Again it’s not ideal but it’s not going to cost him starts either.  I will say I do think we will continue to see the Jacoby package used but the Colts were already expanding that because it’s been effective anyways.

FWIW the local Colts insiders are confirming the turf toe but are also saying it hasn’t been determined if Rivers will need surgery yet and the originally report said surgery was LIKLY.  This might seem like nitpicking but see as how people get worked up over QB injuries (and rightfully so) I think it’s important to accurate.

But Colts are built to win now. Luck jacked up the timing of this team build.  We need a QB that can come in and win immediately. Our roster is too good. They may not want to wait for Eason or rookie to develop right now. Wouldn’t surprise me if Colts bring on another experienced vet QB in offseason to make another push for playoffs next season. Eason might be groomed to be a back up.

I would lmao if JB came in and ran the table. I just say that because so many people hate JB. I think Rivers will finish the season though, his toe would have to fall off for him not to play.

I would eat crow.

    • No question about it, Marshall Faulk was an awesome player.  NFL Rookie of the Year as well as Pro Bowl MVP the same year?  That's not something that is accomplished very often and I believe Faulk may have been the first to do it.  He was drafted in 1994 and stayed here until 1998.  Some great seasons wearing our Horseshoe.  Again, no question about that.  He went on to play about 8 more seasons in Saint Louis and won a Super Bowl with the Rams.  My reservation with Marshall is longevity...here.  IMHO, that ROH is for players who have made significant contributions over a period of time for the extended success of the franchise.  Is it possible for someone to come in, play a shorter length of time and be inducted?  I'd say yes if a Lombardi was hoisted because of that significant short-term contribution.  Just my opinion on the subject.  I believe we are on the same page though @BluesGirl.  Tough calls that Irsay and those around him get to make.  Not a bad gig or problem to have though.  Right?
    • Patriots select Kwity Paye Cardinals next. 
    • Sims has been pretty good actually. So good in fact that I won't judge him on this until it plays out over the coming years. But as a general sense I'm not yet convinced on Wilson, but I do agree that Mond seems a bit underrated. One thing I like about Sims is that when he is wrong though, he doesn't make excuses. He just admits he was wrong. But when it comes to ranking QBs over the last few years he's been pretty good.
    • McAfee had Rossini on today talking about how it's gonna be a massacre this week. I'm not so sure about that. Some of these guys yeah are gonna get let go but anyone with a bonus they are gonna also be looking at waiting for June 1 so they can spread the hit out away from this year. It's definitely gonna be a bloodbath but I don't think we will see it all this week. Again way too much draft capital being spent and not enough backloaded contracts for proven talent. It's definitely going to be interesting though. 
    • The Eagles pick 9 spots ahead of us as it is and that will obviously be more if Ballard trades back. What the Eagles do will likely have very little influence on what the Colts do and vice versa.
