Rivers not clutch / is terrible (merge)

Yeah I know Frank was terrible today. But Rivers can't lead a game winning drive, he just can't. And when you're QB can't do that you need to part ways. This team will win nothing if we don't get a franchise QB soon. I miss Luck......

Didn’t Rivers lead a game winning drive LAST WEEK?

This one is on Frank, not Rivers. 

Even though I’d just finished one, when I heard Rivers had just tossed 420 I knew I had to celebrate that properly so I did and settled in to watch the remainder of the game. This is how the journey w

For his career, Philip Rivers has 9 TDs, 17 INTs, 5.9 Y/A, and a 57.1 passer rating when trailing by a single possession with under 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter.

 

Is that right? Do you have a source?

Yeah, Ik that would be a game winning drive in most eyes but to me it would be your team is down by a few points and it’s the two minute warning and you have to go 75 yards. Where the drive is the last part of the game.(not including overtime)

He’s top 10 all time on 4th quarter comeback and last drive wins.  He does it all the time.....you just don’t know what you’re talking about but stick with your negative narrative on a guy who has played really well all year.

You guys saying he’s so awful put your money where your mouth is start calling for Jacoby to take his job.  Oh not willing to do that?  Maybe he’s not as bad as some want him to be then.  
 

Rivers and Reich out thought themselves in the second half no question.  Is it fair to be upset about that?  Without question.  Pretending they are awful and need to be replaced anytime the Colts lose a game is getting really tired and old.

Yes, I agree Rivers can't be the QB for the team next season. He's not mobile, can't throw the distance and he'll be 40. Time for him to take that HC job in Alabama and have him bring Reich with him as his OC.

Im starting to come around to this thinking.

 

Don't get me wrong I love what he has done this year, but in the grand scheme of things he really limits the versatility that the offense could potentially have. He has played great though.

He’s played fairly well but let’s be honest he’s not the long term answer .ideally you hope Eason can start next year then have the. Cap space to improve in  other areas .

No he’s not but I think he’s going to be the starter next year again.  He’s played very well this year for the most part.  I don’t think the Colts are going to be looking to replace him.  If they do though it’s going to be because they think they have something in Eason or someone like Rodgers falls in their lap (not going to happen).

It didn’t help that frank got pass happy in second half with back ups to the back up tackles 

It's mind boggling at times for sure.

 

I know Rivers audibled out a few times too.

I just don’t see Eason being the answer.  Why all the hype?  Big arm granted and good kid apparently but not a great decision or difference maker.  Ultimately, he was an average QB in a very average league (PAC 12) and got beat out by a very average QB at UGA (Jake Fromm).  Hope I’m wrong and he ends up playing, but he’s a project for sure.

I think they bring him back and draft Trask Jones or Lance to be the starter in 22

You have no clue if he can be the answer. No one does.

Eason could be the answer we don't know.  Dak was a 4th rd pick too and he turned out to be pretty good.  Let's hope he's the guy.

Ugh.....no doubt.  I just don’t get all the hype.  The guy just has never done much despite being the #1 QB recruit in HS......so I wonder why people who don’t know much are talking about such nonsense as playing him this year when PR throws a pick.  I hope the kid ends up doing well but I think the Colts are going to have to draft the QB of the future.  

 

The titles on this thread are so stupid it’s ridiculous.  Do you realize how hard it is to win 11 games. And we shouldn’t act like the Colts have overwhelming offense players.  I think the team unit, play calling and command of the LOS are what make the offense click.  If they get in the playoffs, I think they can do some a damage with a healthy line.  But they really aren’t overwhelming like KC and others at times....no matter who is at QB.

I just think it is fans hoping that he could possibly be that guy. Like you said he was #1 QB, then started decent at Georgia before an injury before transferring to Washington where most of weapons left. He has all the tools, so like I said I think it is more a hope than a hype.

We've been lucky the last three games, with the two Texans wins, should have been the reverse.  We could have been 8-6 going into Pittsburg.  Yes, play calling needs serious attention, i don't know why he(Reich) doesn't let Siriani start calling the plays.  Also, they're under utilizing JT,  run the damn ball I say.

I’ll tell you what’s funny is how fickle fans can be. Just recently there has been a eating crow post about Rivers and how good he is. The issue is he’s always been an average quarterback that’s had good luck with injuries. That’s why I put a post on the site today about Count your blessings were lucky to be 10 and five right now considering who our quarterback is

I blame it more on poor coaching and misusing the personel. Frank should be aware Phil cant be in a shoot out. We were up by ten and could have ran JT but Frank just quit what was working.

Isn't the first time either. Ballard is getting the talent but Frank's not reaching the talents potential. Yes 10 to 11 wins is good but its inspite of poor coaching.

With 3rd string left tackles?..... gimme a  break....this was a coaching loss imho.

Yeah, Rivers has always just been an average QB.

 

What a dumb take.

You don’t win 10 to 11 games in the NFL with poor coaching unless you have a Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck level player which the Colts don’t have.

Our coaches dont make good adjustments at all. We haven't played a complete game all season. If we had better coaching we would be 13-3 right now. Why is Frank giving up on the run up by 10 points in second half. I'm not saying hes horrible but he gets flustered any time a team gains momentum. Could have just kept running and ate up the clock but he put Rivers in to shoot out more up by 10. Bad coaching. A few weeks ago he went for TD over a sure field go. He coaches with blind faith over numbers period.

Are the Colts on the playoff doorsteps or did i imagine this season?

Geeeeez.

Rivers is limited, sure. He is the best the Colts could do under the circumstances BARRING picking a Jalen Hurts.

The rest of the team has to be perfect for Rivers to operate at his finest, and ten wins say that's been the case however when you're running out OTs who are extremely limited, you get what you get.

 

I'm more worried about a passing defense that was taken to the woodshed. *refs or not.

The lack of pass rush the second half didn't help the secondary either. I've all areas of the team do great but never in sync or for the whole 60 mins. Coaches got to stick what's working and make better adjustments when it's not. We have a talented team being utilized wrong.

    • I apologize for missing my picks.   Had an emergency at work. 
    • That's why I put rumor Of course anything can happen still 
    • I have no idea if this is 100% true, but I believe Ballards intent was to re-sign Autry and Muhammed, and let Houston go for a high compensatory pick. Think about it, we already re-signed Muhammed. Before that, we tried to get Autry back, and he went with the Titans. Autry is younger, and he signed for 3 years $21,500,000. Houston is older, and will probably sign for a bit more a year. That means we would of not only got a younger player at EDGE, but we would of got a higher compensatory pick in that scenario.   Now Ballard didn't get Autry, is probably going to get a 5th for him or something along those lines, and has to decide whether to re-sign Houston for more, who is older, and not get the higher pick for him. After the draft, I believe you don't give or receive compensatory picks for signing FA's or getting your own signed. So that comes into play as well. Ballard has a big decision here, and he knows better than us if Houston is getting interest elsewhere right now, or if it's worth it to sign him for another deal.    Heck, Ballard may be interested in an EDGE rusher on day 1. Never know. We'll see.  
    • Would be a good deal for the Pats, not the most unbelievable trade either.
    • You ask a lot of good questions.    Unfortunately, I don't think that I, or anyone else,  has a lot of good answers.   Here's what I think we know.   Over The Cap has the Colts with just over $26 Mill.   Spotrac shows less,  and after the Carrie signing, I think we're going to be at $22.4 or so.   I also think we'd like to find a way to thread the financial needle and sign both Houston and Ertz (as a FA).   Even if you allowed $12 Mil for that, (Houston $7 mill and Ertz $5m)  that would leave us with roughly 10-$12 mill, give or take.   Currently, with our 6 picks,  Spotrac shows that will take roughly $6.5 to sign them.   But we all know Ballard has never had a draft class with less than 8 picks,  so expect two more, and that will bring the money needed to sign them to roughly $8 Mill.   Suddenly, we'd be down to $2-4 Mill and change.   Now, this is the part, where I don't know if @w87r  will step in for more financial adjustments that will show that we will have a few more $ than my math shows.    He's a wiz that way!      But typically, teams want 5-10% in reserve for in-season transactions.   BUT....   can you afford to have that much in reserve when your cap has shrunk to $185?     Yes?    No?    I don't know?     Who knows?   So....    lots of questions that need answers....    and we just don't know?    Both Houston and Ertz look like situations that might not resolve themselves until May......    So, we're left hanging....
