  1. Dwayne Allen and Phillip Dorsett

    At THIS looks like the Colts got the better end of the deals....Dorsett and Allen aren't doing anything now...and we'd likely, no we WOULD be winless without Brissett. Plus we got an extra pick in the 4th round next year, which is important to a team trying to rebuild on the fly. Now this could all change, but as I see it now, the Colts are getting the better results, from especially the Brissett/Dorsett trade.
  2. Colts @ Seahawks Sunday Night Football Game Thread

    These refs are turrible!! I really hope he was down...
  3. Funny thread. Most of the playoff losses during that era were the fault of the offense and its inability to perform like it did in the regular season. Some like 2005 were a victim of circumstance...Dungy's son passing away screwed up that team more than they'll ever admit, had they squeaked it out they probably right the ship and cruise to a SB win. 2007 was an injury nightmare, Sanders couldn't have helped that much and he was healthy that year. 2008, ugh. 12-4 having to play 8-8 on the road. I still hate it. But again, it was on the offense mostly, a missed 3rd and 2 block resulted Peyton getting sacked and giving the ball back to SD. Realisically, 2009 maybe he makes a diffrerence in the Super Bowl.
  4. Rick Venturi On JMV 9-11-2017

    Yeah, bc he had such great teams to work with....He coached Northwestern when they were the perennial doormats of the old Big Ten. He also took over as interim coach for one of the worst Indy Colts teams ever, the 1991 team...and was interim for the then dreadful Saints. All the coaching talent in the world wasn't gonna help him in any of those terrible jobs. At his age he's done coaching, but dang I'd love to see him come in as a consultant like Tom Moore has done. He knows his stuff, calls out what should be done prior to games (which usually isn't by this coaching staff) and knows the game backwards and forwards. I'm thinking he and Irsay aren't exactly in the best terms perhaps, given his rough stint here in Indy,.,,
  5. The Most discouraging factor IMHO

    Today is the first day since the Pats game with the wacky fake punt that we're getting roasted as badly as we are today by the national media. From the margin of loss to a "bad" team, to mostly Pagano saying 49ers.....It's bad. I'd prefer to be unnoticed to this. The past two seasons (save for Pat's punt call) we have been just that. But now we're getting into Browns territory. Hopefully we can somehow win next week and quiet everyone down... And yes I know this is "overreaction Monday" so that's part of it, especially after week 1. Heck the Jags are leading the South. Everything is still on the table. But the optics of Pagano saying 49ers, combined with the non challenge, etc...It's a bad look for the organization. Add in the mess with Grigson, Deflategate, Luck's injury and the silence around it, the bad record since 2015, and we've fallen quite far from beating Denver and going to the 2014 AFCC
  6. Bring him back on an incentive laden, cap friendly deal to mentor the young guys. He's still got a little left in the tank, though this is probably unlikely since the Colts cut Adams
  7. Super Bowl LI (51) NFL Championship Game Thread

    It's always how it goes for the Pats....
  8. Irsay's Relationship with Indy Media

    The only local media I trust even remotely is JMV. He has some really good sources over at 56th and gets it right more than wrong....he called Manning's neck issue in 2011 weeks before any other local reporter, same when the cut/divorce came in 2012. Same again with Sean Payton and now Manning and Gruden. And he's as neutral as possible, IMO. I'd trust him over anyone locally.
  9. Mike Florio said...

    Back to Mike Florio for a minute...that guy is a thin-skinned little weasel who doesn't even try to hide his hate for the Colts. I've tried to defend the Colts in the comment sections in the past and had every comment deleted. Nothing inflammatory, just counter arguments....I gave up a long time ago until today. He had an article clowning Pagano for calling Luck the "best QB in the NFL." While I don't agree with that statement, what was Pagano supposed to say? And to that point, Luck is ONE of the best IMO, especially given his supporting cast. So I broke protocol and went to the comment section. Mostly garbage, Luck sucks, he's not even top 10, etc etc. Anyone defending him was voted down immensely. And I, still being in a chippy mood, decided to chime in. I changed my username and put up a comment with Luck's stat line from this season (a pretty good one TBH) and said he did it behind a pretty bad o-line. It was deleted within an hour....God Florio and his staff are petty. They must log IP addresses or something, bc I used an entirely different email and innocuous username. Yet he lets east coast Pats fans and others dump all over Irsay (drug addict comments galore) and the Colts. I'm done for good with that garbage fire of a website.

    IF, and it's a big if, Manning comes on as GM.....I'd think Indy would become a VERY interesting place for potential head coaches to want to come. He is very highly respected throughout the league for his football IQ. I would think coaches would be lining up to work with him. Just my thought.
  11. Colts would have won wildcard round

    And dominated the Packers for most of the game, and blew the doors off Minnesota and the Jets. This team was a riddle all year. I think, had they snuck in somehow they win at least the wildcard round. Probably nothing beyond that.
  12. Unhappy with the win against the Jags [Merge]

    I seem to remember some pretty terrible Jags teams giving the best Manning era teams fits. A win is a win. It may cost us a few draft spots, but it ain't like we lost the #1 overall pick. And I doubt it changes Irsay's mind either. It was nice to see Mathis get one last strip sack/fumble too. And those who attended got to see a win. 8-8 isn't great but it means still only 2 losing seasons since 1999. Nothing to brag about but it's something....
  13. Time to replace LOS turf [Merge]

    I may be wrong...but I think the current turf came over from the RCA Dome. It was installed in 2005 if I recall. Even if new turf was installed when LOS was's over 8 years old. And there have been big advancements in field turf since then. Different fills (pellets), "grasses", pads, etc. And if they're using the same turf at West 56th, that would make sense in terms of being so injury plagued as a team... Who really knows? But I'd want the best surface for me team if I were an owner
