Completion percentage wise Robert Griffin III was better but yards and quality of throws werent even close, Luck showed why he was #1 Luck-151 yards 1 touchdown 14-23, Robert Griffin III-74 yards 1 touchdown 11-17

Looks like our Colts QB corp has been set this season. Luck, Stanton, and Harnish. Interesting though if there are any more rookies, even besides Luck, RG III, and other quarterbacks who can become candidates for NFL rookie of the week, month, and year, in the 2012 regular season.

We've known for a while that we've had many holes to fill. Then our first and second preseason games gave us a glimpse of hope that maybe we've addressed some of the issues we knew about coming into the season. After this game, it's evident that we still have a long ways to go.

It's not a bad thing to have a loss like this in the preseason. It will be a wake up call to the coaches, and the players.

    • You understand rivers isn't the play caller....  right?
    • I've been going over Rivers stats this season and when you really look at them deeply, he just was not very good this season.  He feasted on bad teams and against good teams he was terrible.  I'm going to make a topic that does a full breakdown of Rivers performances this season vs winning and losing teams.  It's just a lot of information and I'm not good at making charts on here but I'm still gonna give it a shot because the numbers are very telling and will prove that Rivers was just not very good this season and when we needed him to play big vs good teams he just coldn't get it done.  I'll leave you guys with just a sample of the numbers that I found:   I'm gonna pick a number that I think most would say isn't too  bad of a pass to run ratio.  60-40.  That basically comes out to 30 passes and 20 runs a game.  Our record for whenever Rivers threw 3 passes to 2 runs was 1-5.  The only win was against the lowly Bengals.  Whenever he was below that 60% pass ratio we were 10-1.   The only loss was against the Steelers where Rivers decided that in a game we held a 24-7 lead in the 2nd half, he needed to finish that game throwing 23 passes to 3 runs...    Let's break it down even more.  Let's make it an even 50/50 run vs pass split.  In those scenarios we were 4-6 in games where we even let Rivers throw it 1 more time than we ran it (Bengals & 2 fortunate Texans wins make up 3 of those wins).  Both teams picking in top 6.  Only win against a good team where we threw it more than we passed it was first Titans game.  That means that we finished 7-0 in games where we ran it more than we passed it.   In other words, Rivers was nothing more than a game manager.  He could beat teams like the Bengals, Texans, and Titans on a short week throwing it more than we ran it.  But when we needed him to carry us and beat a good team he just couldn't do it.  Unfortunately, Rivers couldn't recognize that.  He kept trying to prove that he could go out and win us games but the numbers say that he just couldn't get it done.    Sure he completed 68% of his passes but the guy couldn't put the team on his back against good teams.  If he can't humble himself and accept the fact that he is just a game manager that should never throw more than 60% of the time vs good teams then he should not be brought back.
    • Good. This division needs to be a dog fight if the Colts win this division they have an even better chance in the playoffs.    Am I the only one who doesn't want the easiest path to the playoffs? This is good news. 
    • I could care less about Brees tbh. Never really cared for the guy that much. Now when Brady retires I can get behind that!
