The Indianapolis Colts struggled last season, due to offensive inconsistencies. They determined this was mostly stemming from the quarterback position, so they brought in veteran passer Philip Rivers to lift the offense to where it is capable of going.

Due to the virus outbreak and restrictions that have been placed on the NFL, the Colts are getting their first official practice time with their new leader. So far, Rivers has gotten raving reviews.

Veteran wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is looking for a bounce-back season, after last year as a disappointment for him by all accounts. It appears he is happy with his new quarterback for this season, saying that he expects to have "a lot of fun this year."

Speaking out Rivers, Hilton also mentioned that he "just wins at everything. On the field, shooting hoops, he just wins at everything." For the Colts' sake, they better hope his addition leads to more wins, after going just 7-9 last season.

Michael Pittman Jr., the Colts' rookie wide receiver, also had high praise for Rivers, saying "I am learning more than I thought I would ever learn...he is like a coach." With 16 years of NFL experience under his belt, there's no doubt that Rivers has plenty he can teach the young players in Indianapolis this season.
