  1. Peyton, the fastest way to lose your legacy is by being a politician... Stay true to your passion and what you know best. Football.
  2. There are alot of pundits during this preseason that have some opinion and slant, but in my viewpoint it is the Colts players that really know what we have. The veteran players like Jon Bostic, Sean Spence, Jonathan Harkins, Kendall Langford, Vontae Davis, Andrew Luck, AC, Frank Gore. These guys have seen alot and have a very good feel about the team's chances to make it to the dance. Everyone gets optimistic during the preseason but by Wk 1, those players have a pretty good idea. GM and coaches live off HOPE and OPTIMISM, while those players live off REALITY. They know when the rubber meets the road.
  3. NO..... no need to sign Macklin. Go with what you have. You are just spreading your WR coaching over too many players. After all, Luck will only have a few weeks to get throwing before the season begins.
  4. He is like a joyful and happy bear... Big and Funny. He looks like a guy you would love to hang with. He'll make you laugh. I think that is important. Pat McFee proved to us that this is important in any locker room, especially when times get tough.
  5. Competition is good, but will our coaches be able to make the right choices? At the end of the day, Ballard has made it clear to everyone that he filled the cupboard with talent for our coaches to make it happen in 2017. This is not a time for development but hit the floor running. Quincy Wilson better read between the lines. You maybe a 2nd rd pick but if you are out of shape, two things is going to happen: poor performance or injury. Both are reason to lose your seat at the table. Ballard does not come across as a patient person but a result oriented manager.
  6. I don't know about you but when I look at the scrimmage pictures of Banner at RT, the DE looks small. The guy is huge and if someone can work on his footings, he will make Andrew a very happy QB. They should make Robert Mathis work with him fulltime on the speed rush. That should be sweeeeet.... huge payback.
  7. Cool! Good for everyone and a fun team building time.
  8. What is the hold up??? All the other players have not only signed but are on the field learning the playbook, techniques and most of all the processes. The learning curve is steep in the NFL. I cannot imagine he is not on top of this. He is no Dwight Freeney or Robert Mathis. He has not even proven that he can do the job. He is a very enthusiastic kid who has bought into all the hype .... at the end of the day, you got to prove it on the field. The first part of any learning curve is very stressful, both mentally and physically.
  9. Ryan anchored the RT and I think he might be a tidbit smaller than Zach Banner. If Zach can conquer the speed rush with Robert Mathis in camp, he will be a very solid RT. I have watched many tapes where Zach just pancaked the guys against him. He has the size and leadership. A very good communicator and personality.
  10. I hope that this is not the case, but I could not but wonder if everything is good with Chud. In the video he looked like he gained weight and tired due to bangs under his eyes. Must have either been a rough night out or something..... His reply to the reporter was so "vanilla" that for a previous Head Coach of the Browns was disappointing. Chud owes the Colts Nation a redeeming year with getting our offense and play calling at its best. He is responsible as Grigson for the trade for Richardson. I could not imagine that he allowed Grigson to trade for Richardson, when he knew the product from the days as a Brown Head Coach.
  11. I want to thank everyone who sent mail to Kevin, especially from Brazil. Eu sou Paulista... meaning that I was originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil. I also want to send a shout out to Kevin for his insightful and honest answers about the team. I am also very glad about the addition of Caroline Cann. You both are doing a super job!
  12. Rubber meets the road..... play up or he is done. He has the physical/measureables but must prove this season if he has what it takes to be either a safety or CB. Ballard is not a patient guy.
  13. He can still play.... but not for the Colts.... I see him in a Brown uniform this season.
  14. Looking at the photos, I think Dorsett has really bulked up. If he has not lost any speed this could mean a year without injury. Looks promising and wish him the best. As a first rounder from Miami, I know Irsay was very up on his signing. That was a year we really really needed a Defensive pick. Hopefully Reggie Wayne has been helping his fellow Hurricane.
  15. Hopefully Pagano and Joe Philbin will ask and Robert Mathis agrees to work with our new OT, like Zach Banner and Raven/Denzelle with the speed and spin rush. If they can hold their own than there is a good chance they can do it on Sunday.
