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.

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

It is on reich. Don’t challenge a play if you haven’t even reviewed  it yet on the big board or got the call from someone up top to challenge it.. he challenged it without even looking at it.. he went for it on 4th and 4? We lost by 3. This fool actually went for 2pts when we would have been down by 7 if he would kick the extra point lol. I’m blaming Frank

Jones is my top option

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

Five dropped passes. Some of those were side open. 

Pass catchers drop passers every game. And I hate it.

 

Coaches don't always leave 3 or ground on a 4th and 4, or go for 2 when it's not necessary. Or use their smallest RB instead of their PFF's rook of the year beast....

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.

We need to find a game breaking WR. Campbell could of been a difference maker today. All our WR seem to have to be schemed open. We need someone who can just get open on their own.  Really glad to see Doyle still has it.

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

That, or the FG we didn't even take... from 4

Doyle and MAC just saved us several times, just us our RBs, otherwise this game would get out of hand earlier. 

 

Let's be honest, we have Pittman (still learning) and nothing else trustable

dream world. 

 

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.

Yeah, not having any time outs really limited play calling in that last drive.

I get the pass on Wentz. But Stafford? He’d be an elite QB behind this line.

 

No thanks to a rookie QB. Too close to being a SB contender to go with a rook. Can’t waste a year of Buckner, Leonard, Nelson being in their prime.

Pittman seemed to catch a few balls today we haven’t seen this year. I just think he will be a great 2. Just don’t know if he will be that game breaking one.

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 himself, and the way he led this team has my eternal gratitude. No matter what Phil, you are a true and bona fide Colt in my book.

The only way a rookie would be good is bring Rivers back. Then the new QB could have some plays in games to get experience while adding another dimension.  They could compliment rivers next season. Kind of what Reich wanted to do with Jacoby. Jacoby is just to slow.

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.

Your arguing a false premise. Nobody is saying Allen isn't a better QB currently, or any GM would take Rivers over Allen.

 

What is true today though, is....

1. Rivers had a better QBR than Allen, and did that on the road.

2. Rivers is likely the best option for 2021 Colts (Allen is not an option for the Colts).

Agreed, I gave up too early on JT, hope I'm making the same mistake on Pitt, but he does not look like it's going to become our Digg's.

 

Need to find a Kennan Allen for us.

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.

Step back, look at all the information....

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

Folks like @Chloe6124 are like, "what 3rd down (or 4th) conversion"

It's so easy for folks to just overlook how good he was today.

If Rivers retires 

 

1. Mac Jones

2. Matthew Stafford 

3. Trey Lance

 

Not an option Wentz

Let's hope he doesn't retire.  But if he does, I like your assessment.

 

Wentz should be a big hell no.

Can we give like 10 picks for Watson? We would be unstoppable.

Stafford is not elite. Megatron bailed him out so many times, and since retirement, he’s not been the same player. I don’t want him.

I think five we had a QB that  pushed things down the field more TY would probably would still show he has it. We just don’t throw it deep much. We cant rely on Campbell staying healthy.

We already have a Keenan Allen.   He’s on the team.

 

Rookie Michael Pittman.   He was drafted to fill that spot.  You’ll see more of him next year.

I never said he was bad. But have to be honest that he does limit us in some ways. I am not blaming this on him. I am saying it was everyone. Everyone contribute to this loss.

Does anyone have any confidence in Rivers on the last drive of the game and the Colts need a fg or TD to win or even tie?

 

I don't.

 

And if that is the answer?

 

You need a new qb.

Basically.

Looking at the schedule next year... 

 

Ballard is gonna have to think this through. I like Rivers all right, he did what I thought he'd do, he played WAY better than JB, but...

 

Stafford would be a serious upgrade, the likes of going from JB to Rivers. You could talk me into that being the safest bet to get better. 

 

We all want the future too, but that's not easy to do.

We played Detroit....

Rivers QBR          82

Stafford QBR       28

 

I like Stafford, but it's not like he's a no brainer over Rivers, nor is he the most mobile guy which is what some folks are whining about.

Well...   he’s nearly 6’4” and weighs 223.  Runs a tick under 4.5.   Runs good routs and has hood hands.

 

Will he ever be Keenan Allen good?   Dunno?

 

But the Colts liked him enough to select him with the 34th overall pick, the 2nd pick in the 2nd round.

Sorry, I don't like the Houston front office, or the divas in the locker room.

 

I'm tired of "I'm special" and "my voice must be head"... stuff.

No, the fans need to see.  They know better than the coaches and managers, obviously.

To listen to some, you’d think that was the case.  To heck with the people whose job it is to run the team.  We fans need to decide who plays, who sits, who stays, who goes!

 

I mean, I’d like a chance to see Eason play as much as anybody else.  But it’s not as if he hasn’t been working out and practicing in the sight of our coaches and personnel guys for 8 months or so.

There's more to the game than just a big paycheck. Watson wants a SB and won't get it in Houston

    • The Paye pick makes a lot of sense but the Dayo pick surprised me. I wanted a left tackle and thought that there were a couple of guys who would have made a lot of sense.   Ballard and co know way more about those players than I do, however, so I'll continue to trust their judgement until they demonstrate that I shouldn't.    I'd rather have two good pass rushers than one good pass rusher and one bad left tackle.
    • I like the breakdown and agree although i caveat with this:   I don't think Leno or Fisher was 2-3 year deals unless they get what their market is before being cut.   And I do not think CB is going to big against himself to do that.   Leno basically made $8M-$9M each year ($8.8, $5.0, $8.1, $8.1) and was slated to make $9.0M this year before cut.   If the Colts are going to offer him $8-$9M a year I think he would gladly take a 2-3 year deal. But if the Colts are bargain shopping then I think he and Fisher will both be happy to take 1 year deals and prove their worth and re-enter the market next year when there is a lot more money to go around.   Fisher probably won't go for a 2-3 year deal unless he is making $10M+    I would actually ideally like to see us give one of them a 2-3 year deal where we have cost control on a decent contract for a year or two beyond this one.   I think that is a big win if so. More likely scenario has us giving one of them a $6M-$8M deal for a year and then having to either try to extend them if it works out or let them walk if it doesn't. 
    • Best option if healthy - Fisher (will still likely want 2-3 years)   Safest option - Leno (likely wants 3 years min)   Most expensive option - Leno   Cheapest short term option with a level of safety - Okung (PFF predicts a 3 year deal, which I don't see).   IMO, if you don't grab one of those guys, or other quality FA, you'll end up starting Tevi. If you start Tevi, before long you're moving Nelson to LT.... Ballard likely doesn't want to give Leno 3-4 years and high dollars. FIsher comes with risk. IDK... 
    • Here's what PFF says, and how they rank them in terms of FAs available.   In short, Houston had the worst pass rush graded year of his career, but still was top 10 in pass rush win rate. Kerrigan on the other had a career worst year all around, was really lousy vs the run, while many expected a bump up in production per snap due to the reduced role.   If Houston would take a one year deal, I'd rather give him 10M than give Kerrigan 5M.     Don't forget we lost 2 (Autry and Houston) and added 3 (Paye, Dayo, Rochell). So even if Dayo takes longer, we're still even net/net with the addition of Rochell.    I agree he could start over Banogu. As long as Turay is deemed healthy enough to play, he'd be a better passing downs rusher than Kerrigan. Kerrigan wouldn't play on running downs at all for us. He'd be a rotational or depth pass rush specialist at best.
    • Man i respect you. But I just have to say the talent gradient in college is so vast compared to the NFL. I Trust Ballard. It makes sense and no way in hell am i making that trade. Whatever happened to sitting a kid for a year? I mean you got a bag, buy in or gtho.
