  1. Cincinnati Halloween ideas - Colts-related

    But this bag, cut eye and mouth holes, and wear it over your head.
  2. Peyton Manning: ''Will He Ever Return To Indianapolis?"

    Here's the rumor mill (JMV, Kravitz, etc.) if I am remembering correctly. Irsay pursued Manning and Gruden last off season. PM would be brought in as team president, which basically means he steps into Irsay's role. Hierarchy would be team pres, GM, HC. PM didn't come through because they could not agree on partial ownership as part of this role. JMV was saying a few weeks ago that Irsay is going to make another run at PM this off season. Who knows if there is anything to any of this...Manning, Ballard, a new HC, and healthy Luck would sure give some hope to a situation where the further along we get the more I'm starting to feel like bad management will be the biggest factor in Luck never reaching his potential. I have always been an Irsay supporter but I must say I am starting to wonder if it is time for him to take a hands off approach.
  3. Anyone going to the Seattle game?

    @CanuckColtsFanI live in down in Portland and was planning on going, but with no Luck, tickets being super expensive, and it being a SNF game, I opted to watch it on my couch. Seahawks fans are rowdy but not dangerous. Wear your jersey and prepare to hear lots of smack talk. It is a great stadium to see a game. If you like to party, there are ample bars very close to the stadium that are crazy on game day. Enjoy, and cheers to the Colts making me wish I forked up the cash to go!
  4. Luck's recovery timeline since 2015

    Anyone listening to JMV? I saw on Twitter he said he has "some Luck content you may consider good news."
  5. TJ Green at CB

    Thanks for the logical take on the situation.
  6. Season opener vs Rams

    I can't go that far but Dio Sabbath is great. Also completely underrated.
  7. T.Y. Hilton putting up HOF pace numbers

    The main knock on TY to this point in his career is TD's. Unless that changes, he won't even sniff the Hall. For comparison, AJ Green, in only 8 more games (one more season) with worse QB play, has 481 receptions; 7,135 yards; 83 yards/game; and 49 TDs. In today's NFL, that is a HOF pace. That all said, I love me some TY and he's a great player in his own right.
  8. I do think the offense could stand some changes, but Chud is not one of the worst OCs in the NFL. He's middle of the pack-ish...pretty much like Pagano. If things don't look smoother this year, I'll join you with my pitchfork.
  9. Come on now. You can say you don't like his offensive system/philosophy, but to say he knows little or nothing about running a NFL offense is just sensationalism devoid of factual evidence and reality. Chud has coached offense since 1996. He has coached offense in the NFL since 2004--that's 13 NFL seasons. Someone who has been employed for 13 seasons knows a lot about running NFL offenses.
  10. LB Gerald Hodges visited Colts today

    Per PFF 10 sleeper free agents (https://www.profootballfocus.com/pro-10-sleeper-free-agents-who-could-bring-surprise-upside)/: 8. Gerald Hodges, LB Players with a very small sample size of play are some of the riskiest free agents around, but they can also provide major upgrades for minor investments if the sample size is small enough to keep them under the radar of most teams. Gerald Hodges played 584 snaps for the 49ers this past season. It was actually his third straight season with between 500 and 600 snaps, but was the first in which he put it all together instead of just flashing one facet of his game. Hodges became a major factor in the run game for the 49ers, notched three sacks and nine total pressures on the blitz, and improved his play in coverage – dropping his passer rating allowed by more than 25 points over his previous career high. Hodges only really has one season of quality play to his name, but that season points to significant upside if a team can replicate that form. Edit, PFF also had him 3 in FA LBs (https://www.profootballfocus.com/pro-top-10-linebackers-set-to-hit-free-agency/): 3. Gerald Hodges, San Francisco 49ers (82.4) Acquired by the 49ers in a trade with the Vikings, Hodges struggled in his first year with the new team but took a big step in 2016. Hodges has graded well in run defense in his career and has posted solid grades the past two seasons rushing the passer when asked to do so. The concern for the former Penn State Nittany Lion are his inconsistencies in coverage, which will limit his ceiling. While he showed improvement in that area — yielding a career low 87.3 passer rating when targeted — he was also targeted a career-low 24 times in 2016 while still allowing 2 touchdowns.
  11. Brian Decker, Rex Hogan, Ed Dodds expected to join Colts

    The amount of positive response to all three hires makes me feel like CB really does get it. Can't wait to watch this roster develop over the next three years. I think the Colts compete even this year, but three years into this and the roster has a chance to be top tier.
  12. Brian Decker, Rex Hogan, Ed Dodds expected to join Colts

    I don't think so. He was given the 4-year deal after the 2015 season (first 8-8 season). Edit: he is under contract through 2019 for sure. http://www.colts.com/news/article-notebook/Chuck-Pagano-Expects-To-Return-In-2017-Will-Meet-With-Jim-Irsay-Monday-Afternoon/d11743fd-3748-4dbe-97eb-ed10d9c3037c
  13. Chris Ballard on the Herd

    That was my biggest nugget. It will be interested to see who he brings in to replace Raye because you have to assume he will be leaning on him for offensive players. I wonder how much input the offensive staff had/will have in decision making too.
  14. Chris Ballard on the Herd

    He's an acquired taste. I like him, but think he has gone a little too overboard since moving to Fox.
  15. Who's your starting defense?

    I'm primarily interested in two things. 1) How the secondary plays out--there is a nice combo of youth, experience, speed, ball hawking, and physicality. 2) How the front 7 generates a pass rush--there isn't a stud pass rusher. At any rate, the D looks much better on paper now than it did before the start of FA.
