Hilarious post by the Colts Media Team!


Somewhere on an NFL films clip that’s somewhere on YouTube..,  

 

There's a play from Rivers when he was with the Colts.   He’s under center.   And on defense one linebacker is trying to tell another linebacker he’s in the wrong spot.   And without missing a beat Rivers tells the confused linebacker that his teammate is right, that the confused linebacker is in the wrong spot!   Rivers barks and points….  “you’re supposed to be over there!   Not here!” 
 

Rivers came with a well earned reputation as a trash talker, there are NFL Films clip  to back it up.  But for me, that moment was CLASSIC!!     Laugh Out Loud FUNNY!!
 

Id link it if I could!

Me neither….  I couldn’t find it as well.   
 

Makes me wonder if it’s on Colts.com?

 

You know, one of those games when the Colts mic’ed him up for the website’s fans.  
 

So it’s a Colts.com clip and NOT an NFL.com clip.   It’s the only thing that makes sense to me.   Unfortunately,  I don’t know how to navigate our websites archives.

Yeah, I remember JJ Watt telling a similar story. Don't know if it's the same, but it's hilarious.

I think it’s here on this website.   

It’s gotta be. 
 

I remember him calling out the defender saying “you’re in the wrong spot!” And the defender replied “no I’m not!” Hahaha

2020 was a really fun year. 

 

I still don't quite understand why he retired so suddenly. Sounded like he wanted to continue to play the last time he talked, and then boom he retired. He was still playing well. Should have beaten the Bills. 

I feel the same way. Just one more year with him and who knows what 2021 would’ve looked like.

Is this it?

Just weird to play one year with a new team while never having won a super bowl. You're not going to give it more than one try with the new team? 

 

Manning played 4 years with the Broncos and Brady 3 with the Bucs. 

 

Should have played another year and the Colts should have gone on all out to try towin a SB with their veteran QB.

Rivers may not have had a choice - Ballard may have told him that the team was pursuing other options and that he could return as a backup if he chose to, and he may have chosen to retire instead. At that point, Philip had nothing left to prove and besides, a Superbowl championship is a team accomplishment that coaches & quarterbacks get too much credit (or blame) for.

If Rivers had played in 2021 with the way JT was running the ball and Leonard was creating Turnovers, who knows how far this team may have gone. Wentz held us back in many games in 2021, the last 2 games were a disaster with Wentz and even in wins vs the Pats, Wentz was bad - that was all Taylor and the defense in that win. I think in 2021, we would have went 12-5 with Rivers and we may have snagged that #1 seed. Rivers, IMO, is a Top 25 QB of all-time and he belongs in the Hall of Fame. Reasons why he never won an MVP or a SB is because he had Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Ben Roethlisberger in the same conference for most of his career. Give Rivers, Ben's D in 2008, Rivers would have a SB win.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
