  1. 1. Is he washed up



Recommended Posts

Career revival potential.
- Better OL

- 2 TEs who are good blockers (Doyle and Alie-Cox) and a decent receiving TE (Burton) 

- 2 better then average running backs to lighten the workload for him. And a former Pro Bowl FB in Roosevelt Nix. 

- Michael Pittman Jr. with the Malcolm Floyd potential and TY Hilton.

Nope. He'll have an amazing year with the Colts. Not his best. But at least 2017 level.

I'd lean yes more so than no, but I'm not going to rule out a bounce back with better protection, and a good team around him.

He's neither as good as he played in 2018, nor as bad as he played in 2019. His best days are behind him, but he's not trash.

I hesitantly voted yes, but he might not be. Favre looked done a few times only to have elite seasons. Rivers wasn’t uniquely bad last season and is on a much better team now. There’s still a chance he could have a great season but I lean towards last season being a general decline.

Of course, he is.  

He's never even went to a Super Bowl after 16 years, so what makes anybody think he's going to go now?  

Despite this, Rivers has actually had a very good career.  

Consistently throws 4,000+ yards, TD-INT ratio is solid, and he's managed the play the majority of his career with the same team.  

Matt Ryan is very much like him in a lot of ways, and he's following in Rivers's footsteps.  

But yeah, he's never going to a Super Bowl.  

Is that entirely his fault?  No, not at all.  He's had 4 different head coaches and has still managed to make 7 playoff appearances.  

Rivers is definitely washed up, but is he a bad QB?  No, not by any means.

Nah. He was good the year before last. Put him in a dome behind a good line with good play callers and he’ll look a lot better than last year.

I feel like this statement contradicts itself. Typically washed up would mean has nothing further to provide of value. If he's not a "bad" QB then that means he's at least average. Which would mean he's more valuable then more then half the starting QB's in the league. Peyton was about his age when he won a SB with the Broncos so I don't feel it's out of the realm of possibility. The Colts are a decently talented team. Some strong QB play could put them over the top.

He's clearly not what he once was, but I wouldn't count him out as an effective starter for 2020
