  1. Adam Vinatieri

    Just curious, by what information are you going by that Vinatieri's leg power has diminished? He was knocking down some serious distances last season. Outside of one field goal, he looked solid as ever in the pre-season.
  2. Colts Practice 8/28/17

    Obviously we know why Luck isn't practicing, but usually he is there for support or to make mental notes, help with coaching. Why do you think he is absent today? Could he be in the process of being activated off PUP?

  4. Andrew Luck interview

    I think the reason they are being secretive for Andrew is this: He is one of the biggest names in football, obviously our star QB. So lets say they go out and give a time table of no later than Late July. What if Andrew has a super minor set back and won't be quite ready then? The national media would blow up, questions would poor in. It is a minor distraction right now, but could you imagine how big it would be if the team gave a date and Andrew missed it? I'm sure they have a date, but a little white lie doesn't hurt anyone. It definitely helps, and I'm sure they are taking it slow with him. As for the other guys like Ridgeway and Geathers, I'm sure its somewhat the same mentality of just not giving a date incase if they miss it, and they don't have to give one, so why give one? Obviously if they don't meet a date given the only people who would really care are in Colts nation and the national media wouldn't pick up on it. But I think it's still somewhat the same idea as the Luck injury. Just my two cents though.
  5. Vinatieri movingup record boards

    Typically when players sign one day contracts after being on a different team it is when they have a short stint and usually aren't to good on their new team. This isn't always the case, but it is most of the time. Seeing how Vinatieri has actually played more seasons in Indianapolis, and has been very successful, but has also made some very dramatic kicks in New England I think it is safe to say he will just retire as an NFL player, and will not sign a one day contract with either team. With that being said, I read an article stating that he wants to retire after he gets the scoring record, or wins another superbowl. That record would mean a lot to him, and would really push him to have a stronger "bid" to the hall of fame. (Obviously he is deserving of so, but it's hard for a kicker to get in, so the more ammunition the better.) http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/10/10/teammates-adam-vinatieri-wants-all-time-scoring-record/
  6. Banner at RT ... Intimidating

    I think Clark has good potential,I'm unsure about Haeg though. I feel as if he could be a Joe Reitz 2.0 which would be solid. Sometimes I feel like people are caught up in the word potential, and these guys never reach that point: Recent memories: Da'Rick Rodgers, DaRon Rodgers, and heck if Moncrief doesn't have a good season this year and only gets the ball in the redzone I would argue that he is just a guy with good size that Luck manages to get him the ball in the redzone and that's it. A guy that has a label of potential but never seems to find it.
  7. Nike's new NFL jersey template

    interesting analysis, I find the Nike Jersey I own for the Colts kind of weird compared to the old rebook ones. Whenever I left my arms above my head the whole jersey kind of scrunches up with it, just kind of weird fitting. I have the "cheap" $100 game jersey though.
  8. Interesting tidbit re: Mack's scheme versatlity

    I don't know much about Mack. I don't watch much college football though. If he is as talented as people say he is, then how come he was picked in the fourth round?
  9. Former Colt Hugh Thornton retires

    Your initial post said professional athletes in general. But I thought it was basically common knowledge that athletes have money spending issues? They have TONS of money coming in and going out when they are playing, and they don't know how to cut back after they retire, and don't have that huge check coming in. https://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/more-sports/21-sports-stars-whove-gone-bankrupt/ss-BBlmIiX https://www.forbes.com/sites/leighsteinberg/2015/02/09/5-reasons-why-80-of-retired-nfl-players-go-broke/#7f5b3f2d78cc http://www.munknee.com/78-of-nfl-players-go-bankrupt-within-5-years/
  10. Former Colt Hugh Thornton retires

    I actually think it's the other way around, most athletes aren't good with their money: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_finances_of_professional_American_athletes
  11. Wide Receivers

    I will be honest, I stopped reading at the bolded part above. I never said that.
  12. Wide Receivers

    I agree that TY his a great receiver, and Aiken is a good depth piece, but the rest of yet to reach their potential. Sure Dorsett can FLY but we've seen time and time again, the guy cant catch. I liked Chester Rogers as well, but he's still a question mark. He may become the third receiver honestly (once again just a POTENTIAL guy) Moncrief is another guy, he got a lot of touchdowns in limited time last year, but being consistent and burning defenders, or playing up to his size, or even beyond it, he lacked in that area. Another guy with just potential that has yet to show any consistency at all. God for bid if T.Y missed a game due to an injury, it would truly show that our receivers is actually a weakness. You can come back at me that they are still young and could turn it around, but right now, stats are stats, facts are facts and everyone besides TY has shown very little. (Aiken is solid) .
  13. Chris Ballard on the Herd

    Imagine a conversation with Chuck & Chris. "Look - you've just got to do what you can" Chris Ballard. "Exactly uhh, you just got to uhh keep chopping wood, he's a bowling ball of butcher knives."
  14. Oh god... You're not one of those people who have zero understanding of basic economics and don't see why professional athletes make more money than doctors/lawyers/military etc are you??
