I would like to say, no matter what happens, we are truly lucky that we had Rivers play for us this year. He may not have been the answer, time will tell, but the way he competed, the way he carried h

Rivers no Turnovers, 309 Yards, 2 TD's. We gave this game away. I haven't been this disappointed since losing the SB in 2009. We had them beat, I am sick right now.

Id have zero problem with Phil coming back if Eason isnt ready. We damn sure didnt lose bc of Phil.

Do you think Colts bring him back or was this his last game?

 

I think they bring him back and he will look like peyton Manning in his last year.

 

I think his lack of arm strength and accuracy on intermediate/deep passes was shown on that last drive, which with 2:40 left should of been a lot better, although I honestly believe our run game kept us in the game despite Rivers with those large runs.

 

I know I do not have a popular opinion lol

Rivers played as well as we could have expected this year. Interestingly, it wasn’t the huge INTs that he’s known for that cost us, it was the 4-5 just flat out misses he has per game. Today, he overthrew Pittman in the end zone on 4th down and then, down 17-10, he missed Pittman on that crosser that was a sure first down and maybe a TD. You can’t win a ring with Rivers. You could prob win 10-11 games again.

He is not the answer the colts just dont have a chance to win a ring with him.   I was against bringing him in for that reason i knew he would get us to the playoffs and we would lose right away .  i rather have jacoby get us a top ten pick then trade up for a franchise guy .  i would rather waste one season if it means being a contender for 15 years . luck hurt this team bad by retiring so quick the colts are in a bad spot .

Rivers can't move and throws with no spin and no velocity.  He couldn't even make that end of game Hail Mary to the endzone.

 

In contrast Allen completed numerous passes that Rivers never could have, including many while running to the sidelines.

 

Rivers can get you to the playoffs.  He will never win you a SB,  You need the ability to run and RPMs/spin from a qb.


Rivers has neither.

Allen is a lot younger so of course he will have the better arm

I think Bringing back Rivers is a safe fallback option we have. We have to trade Jacoby. I LOVE what he brings to this team as a character but We need Eason to be the backup. I'd also see what it would take to move up to a position to get Fields. If we can't get Fields and Eason doesn't pan out, I'd rather stick with Rivers than go to Wentz or even Stafford.

Allen probably has the strongest arm in the league but Tom Brady is older with a better arm than Rivers

Jacoby and Phil are FA

Lukewarm on this. I don't think he entirely played bad for us, but I wouldn't miss him if we let him go. I just don't think he's an answer as much as he is a stopgap for this team right now.

I dont100% agree that Rivers was the problem! Its the Coaching! Rivers does have a noodle arm, but he did prove that he can make a tough throw15-25yds down the field! He does have blame in the play calling! He can check to a different play based on what the D is doing, but those checkdowns are nonsense reich calls that dont do a danm thing! We need to rid of the danm wr/rb/te screen plays on 2nd And long! Only Hines needs to run those and not slow players like Burton!

This team needs a better QB and River 's and JB don't fit the part.  Where we will be drafting the top QB's will be gone.  There will be options for trades and FA.

Doesn't Phil have a coaching job lined up in Alabama

Phil is a likable guy and a decent qb but not top drawer and probably not good enough to win us a Super Bowl. I think we should move onto the next chapter, although I appreciate what he did for the team this season.

If we want another season like this year, then bring Rivers back. I think he’s played “decent” enough but not sure if he can take us the distance. I think fans want to see Eason. But if he’s not ready we’re going to need to sign a FA Vet and it could be Rivers again.

Good thing I don’t get my hopes up anymore. I’d be devastated right now. Colts should’ve won that game

    • Alarming?    When the times comes, you don’t think Pittman is going to get a big contract?   You don’t think Taylor us going to get a big contract?   The answers are right in front of you, and for some odd reason, you’re not seeing it.  
    • The Colts have the cap space to sign Leonard and Smith to long-term deals this year and Nelson fortunately for us we are able to extend his 5th-year rookie contract option and post-pone his big payday a year later.   Leonard is not a true MLB so I doubt he will reset the market value at the linebacker position.  Originally thought Leonard could get a 5 year/$100 million contract with $60 million guaranteed but think it will be closer to 5 years/$82.5 million with $40 million guaranteed.   Smith am guessing closer to a 4 year/$58 million contract with $30 million guaranteed.   Depending on whom we keep/sign at left tackle I think will set the stage of how much cap space we will have left to resign players.  Do we keep an older Fisher or try to go after Viking's O'Neill (RT) and move him back to his LT position he played in college.  Both will cost a lot to retain either way and have some flexibility with O'Neill and Smith combination.   Do think Glowinski will be a cap causality since he is already on the books for $7.5 million for 2021 and expect him to make over $8 million in 2022.   The only other pending FA of note after this season to play RG Brandon Scherff but expect him to be too high priced out of the Colt range (4yr/$66 million).  So looks like OL Chris Reed might be a future option or another current OL on the roster might be able to take over.    As for the draft will have to keep in mind RG Baer Hunter from Appalachian State.  Hunter's team's OL ranked as a top-15 unit nationally that was very good at running the football.  Biggest issue have seen about Hunter from his game tapes is his a  drive killer with potential penalties with unnecessary holding and block in the backs once the play has extended past the second level.  The young man I do like best at this point in time is RG Cain Madden from Marshall.  Madden's run-blocking abilities improved form 60.3 to 74.2 from 2019/2020 and he finished top 10 among RGs.   Wouldn't be surprised next off-season if we cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut and TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m.  Some of the other FA's doubt we resign are Stallworth, Rochell, Muhammad, Carrie, Mack, Eldrenkamp, Dulin and Campbell.   After we resign Leonard and Smith to big contract extensions can see the Colts resign, MAC, Pascal, Lewis, Turray,Holden, Hunt and Reed.  Hines should also get resigned and looking at something similar to Austin Eckler contract APY $4.55 million 3 year/$13.645 million (base 3.9 million, 4.5 million, 5.65 million with 1.35 million roster bonus each year).  One FA name I like to replace Stewart with a younger improved version is Bear's IDL Bilal Nichols at best am comparing him to IDL Dalvin Tomlinson where I would offer him a 3 year/$33 million $11 million APY with $20 million signing bonus.  Again we get back either $8.125 million or $9.378 million depending on when we release Stewart under this scenario which after these movements only leaves the Colts with a projected $7-8 million in cap space currently.   Will have to do more research and play around with the futures but can envision the Colts will need to find starting WR, RG, RCB with backups at RDT, RDE, RB, FS, SS,  and TE.   Early watch list RD 1 Draft picks 2022 TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M George Pickens, WR, Georgia Drake Jackson, Edge, USC Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida   RD 2 picks Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson John Metchie III, WR, Alabama Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan          
    • If what Ballard says about a Achilles is what happens with Fisher that means he could be ready by TC. Mack looks like he might be close to 100% and he is at the 8th mark. I think they will be extra careful with Dayo. But Fisher is a vet so if he is ready he will go.  Very possible Fisher is ready week one.
    • Those shoulder pads make him look huge. Lol
    • I don't know why you think you're revealing something that's embarrassing to Ballard?    You're not.   Ballard says the same thing at the start of every free agency period.   That other teams may value his players more than he does.   That's he's ok if he loses a player to another team.   He just wants a chance to match or exceed the offer.   Hilton was offered 3-years from Baltimore.   The Colts signed him to a 1-year deal.    That's a win for Ballard and the Colts.   Hilton got more than we would have liked,  but only on a 1-year deal.    So, that's a win for TYH.    A win-win situation.   There's nothing bad reflected on Ballard.   Yet you think you're offering some insight that the rest of us somehow don't understand.    That's not the case.   The rest of this community understands a win-win situation.    You want to see a loss, a negative for Ballard.   It's reflected in most of your posts,    It's reflected in many of your posts, including one in the last few days which talked about not a good enough record,  and not enough playoff wins.   Your views are widely known.
