    Top 10 Favorite Sports teams: Colts... Actually that's pretty much it.
  1. Scouting Colts OL for ZBS

    That was my take last year, when I had high hopes Herremans would do well, and Thorton and Holmes would mature.  I was wrong, and Luck can't afford another year of running for his life and battling through injuries because he is poorly protected.   Not to be too pragmatic, but bad D causes hurt pride, bad O line causes hurt players.   I'm anxious to see the D get better after YEARS of embarrassing play, but not at the cost of addressing the O-line's woes.   PLEASE, Jim, Ryan, et al...  protect the franchise.
  2. Scouting Colts OL for ZBS

    Excellent analysis, as one would expect from you, Sup.  I'd be curious to see similar analysis of the top FA and draft ZBS options...
  3. RIP Coach Marchibroda

    Indianapolis and the Colts owe this man a sincere debt of gratitude for everything he did to improve their fortunes.   Thank you, Coach.  Rest in peace.
  4. Dwayne Allen says he plans to be back

    Uhmmm...?   Not "coming back", he's just saying he'd prefer to do so.  This sticky little thing called a new contract still needs to be addressed before the "beast" can be more "correctly used".
  5. Surely they're going to keep Frank Gore?

    Keep Gore.  Keep Boom.  Time to focus any investments of valuable draft picks for the O on the line, exclusively.  IMO.
  6. Surely they're going to keep Frank Gore?

    Ahhh, yes, all that expert commentary on this forum.   Odd how every running back since has struggled, including Gore and Bradshaw.  I'm trying to think what the common thread might be...?
  7. I totally agree he looked phenomenal his first year.  I am not going to go thru old game film, but it has impressed me that he's had several unfortunate and untimely drops in the last two years.  He has also looked slow and out of place more often than not, IMO.   I want him to rediscover the DA of 2012, but let's not mistake the talent shown that year for a guarantee it'll ever be seen from him again.  It is very possible the injuries may have lowered his ceiling.
  8. Jim is the problem with this team

    Including chea...   oh, never mind.
  9. Hard to really know... DA spent WAY too much time injured to really even know what we had, and seemed to be unreliable at crucial moments when he played.
  10. Jim is the problem with this team

    I was thinking the same too.  Grigs looked the world to me like a guy who was just told that he can stay, but on a very short leash.  He did seem to loosen and lighten up a little the last time he spoke, though, when he was talking about the club's future.
  11. Can't say for sure, but I believe the pocket is for holding your MP3 player or phone while running or working out. I'd guess it eliminates the dumb looking armband I used to use but hated.
