Your not trading for wentz to compete. Not only are you going to have to give up  at least a second  but also pay him 30 million.

If the eagles wanna deal him, they will have to eat a lot of that cap but. And they know it.

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.

No one blames Rivers for losing.

 

Just like no one blames Rivers for the 11-5 season.

 

It is just that today, and the season, is about what he will bring you.  A decent season and a playoff appearance.

 

Can he win you a SB?  No.

 

And I think that has been made pretty obvious throughout his career so I am not sure why anyone would expect that to change at at age 40.

 

So if your cap is a decent season and a playoff appearance?  What good is that?  All you are doing is wasting all of the other good Colts players seasons.

 

I would rather suck and get a great draft pick or have a qb that you would at least feel gives you a chance to win a SB.

With better coaching, he would have beat the #2 team on the road. 

 

He had a better QBR than Allen..... 

 

It's just intellectually dishonest to look at this game, on the road, and act like Rivers doesn't have what it takes. Allen had better coaching, and better WRs, and still almost lost at home.

Huh?  No.

So tell me, statistically what Rivers did bad. He had a better QBR than Allen. And QBR takes into account a ton of factors. No INTs, 300+ yards, 2 TDs, no INTs. 

 

so....

 

save the subjective stuff.

Its so easy to point the fingers at one guy but in reality multiple things caused us to lose

yeah it’s crazy people say Rivers can’t take them to the SB.  Some bad coaching lead to a deficit.  And some bad coaching cost us 2 timeouts which would’ve made that final drive much different.  
 

He was very close to beating one of the best teams in the NFL on the road.  If they won, they had a big chance at dethroning KC and any other team they faced. 
 

I hope he comes back with a full offseason and preseason and JT and Pittman in year 2.  I think the offense will be even better.

I could list probably 10 key issues. Frank had easily the most... It's not even close this week.

I like Rivers and would not be upset if he came back as the starter next year, but I would not expect to end up deeper in the playoffs. I would also be for him coming back for a year as the #2... But doubt it would happen. 

 

Jacoby is a great guy, but I wish him well. 

 

Matt Stafford is an interesting option. Call me weird, but I'd look at Fitzpatrick (is Fitz available?) as a backup if Eason isn't ready. Fitz seems to do good things wherever he goes lately. 

 

Lastly - someone on here during the season said something that I think makes sense. Excuse my horrible paraphrasing... 

 

If you need two quarterbacks during the game, you don't have one. 

 

We do need an upgrade. 

Would you say that about the Saints?

People need to stop judging Mac Jones before he's even played a down in the NFL.

 

The history of bad QBs from Alabama has little value right now. You can say all day that Jones has rock stars around him but he also has several great traits about him.

 

He's not gonna be a QB thats gonna pick up a lot of yards running but he is extremely accurate which i think will be key for him.

 

I honestly think Mac will one of the best in this class

There were lots of mistakes today. There always are. Frank just had a lot more than the players. 

 

I'll take both Rivers and JB back. Throw in TY, Houston, Rhodes, Autry too.

Wow, you're right.  ESPN gave Rivers a 91.9 total QBR today.  He played a hell of a game.  The people blaming him are 100% delusional.

Somewhere he isn’t quite good enough when we got in bills territory. It’s a combination of things. Need a better weapon or two, dropped passes, and yes some of that is on rivers. This wasn’t all Reich.

Five dropped passes. Some of those were side open.

And add to that, Allen's kicker made a 54 yarder, while ours missed a 33 harder.  That was literally the score difference.

There were a lot more on the players. 

5 dropped passes

Turay offsides 

Missed FG

Reichs so called mistakes weren’t really mistakes.

Whaaaaat??? You have to be kidding right? Those are mistakes that you know will happen  in games. Frank’s mistakes should never ever happen.. like ever in games especially in playoffs.

There wasn’t that much wrong going for the fourth. The bad thing was probably the pitch and why Dulin is blocking. Should of just kept pounding it. All I am saying when you look at the game there were many more mistakes by the players.

You don’t go on for it on 4th and 4.. in the playoffs.. as you can see we ended up losing by 3..

Allen won the game because of his scrambling and his ability to throw with RPM/Spin and on the run.

 

There is no GM in the history of the game that would trade Allen for Rivers.  Rivers is a game manager.

 

Period.  He cannot win a game by himself. 

 

And that is all we are talking about.  What gives you the best chance to win the SB.

Plus I have seen 20 years of Rivers.  He is what he is.

Yes I think his professionalism, his throwing power, his average mobility, and his toughness make him a starter. He was 5-2 with a win over KC before he got injured bad on his knee. After that injury he didn't throw the same the entire year. And then we insert Rivers and we don't get to see Brissett.

 

Without 7 alot of our drives would've stalled out. Rivers can't throw deep and can't sneak the ball. If that's good enough for a starting gig, I'm sure Brissett will play somewhere. 

Rivers

He was 5-2 and he was also the reason we finished out the season 2-6...

 

He's not better than Rivers, and you should probably accept that Philip proved you wrong

He can't throw the ball with velocity into the endzone where things are way tighter...nor can he run like Allen.

 

That is why the Colts struggle in the Red zone.  Luck was the opposite.  He could run or throw it with RPMs.

 

If people can't see this they are just blind.

he was clutch. 

 

he was like 6-9 on third down until late in the game, and they were some big 3rd downs, if he had TOs to work with, he could have done a lot more.

F Reich not taking those 3 points was criminal.

 

Worst decision ever from the 4 yard line.

This is why put this game more on rivers. It’s clear  lot of the redzone issues are on rivers. Even with Jacoby we were pretty good last season before he got injured. He is great between the 20’s but just struggles in the red zone. Reich could help him some by putting Hines and Taylor on the field together.

Reich forgot about going to bigs in the RZ. Rivers was money on third, had two TDs, and a great QBR. The RZ problems were stupid things like using Hines again up the gut when Taylor is the hottest RB in the league.

Insane.

 

Frank tried to force the run in the red zone too much, that's where the struggles came.  When we passed more, we scored TDs.

Look we have different opinions. Yes Reich can be better but this was not all on him. Way to many mistakes by everyone.  We also punted a lot even after crossing the 50 so it wasn’t even all red zone.

The 4th and 10 conversion on the final drive was also super clutch.

Simple crazy people saying that this one is on Rivers. 

 

Bring him back next year for sure, Eason it's not even a back up, c'mom.

 

Pass rush, LT, CB and WR, those are the needs.

 

Only way I would love to see Rivers not back would be because we got Stafford or we trade all our picks for Watson..

It wasn’t all on  rivers. It was a combination of everyone. Putting all the blame on Reich is dumb.

For me was a close great game.

 

Time/timeout management was not great, that's Reich.

WR/RB dropped passes, that's execution.

 

Other than that, we play a great team with a great QB and Defense played great. Let's move without trying to fire everybody that got us here.

 

WR for me is the weakest group of this team, it was clear  today.

    • Year two is where we should really see him hit his ceiling. We are going to have to have a little patience with him this first year until everyone gets used to each other. I think he will be good this year bur 22 is where it should really click.
    • I simply don't know how much authority he ever had.  I'm not sure anybody does.   It sound like he was simply a guy who was plucked out of a job In Philly, maybe having narrow duties, but did not have the managerial instincts and NFL connections to be able to assemble a non Polian staff.    Still, did Irsay help him in this aspect or just let him sink?   It always seemed like a weird authority structure.  Starting right off with Irsay handling the PM situation, deciding to draft Luck, wanting a 34 defense, not allowing RG to fire Pagano, and I wonder who made the call to either keep Arians or Pagano after the ChuckStrong campaign but the team flourishing under Arians.  Not that there was a real choice, but I always wondered if Irsay and Grigs had a talk about that after season 1 and what each thought about each coach and why.
    • We were in a great spot to trade up for Herbert. But we only had two teams we could of traded with. The giants and I believe the lions.  They may not have wanted to trade. Then that means we Would not of gotten Buckner. I think Herbert would of been able to win right away with this team. Character wise he was the perfect fit too.
    • One thing that stuck out was he said he didn’t have a good supporting cast around him helping him make decisions. Irsay would of given him anything if he asked. This is why Ballard is so good. He surrounded himself with great people who keep him accountable. He even said the assistants and scouts at the end of the season get to review his job performance as a GM. He said they bust his balls lol.
    • This is obvious to many.  Since he could not fire Pagano, I'm not sure why he did not bring in different OCs.  Of course, I'm not sure if that quick passing game was in vogue at the time he was here, and I don't know what OC candidates would have implemented it.  Seemed like the candidates were just a bunch of old school retreads at the time.   The west coast offense was known for exposing its QBs to injury, so that shorter quicker passing offense was not the answer.   Can only hire what the market produces.
