It's kinda sad because this seems to follow Avery. He would have these type of games for the rams, and when he started to click with Bradford he would get hurt. I hope he shakes it off and is back on the field sooner than later. I think Hilton is capable of filling in, though. I did notice that in this dolphin's game, even with some of the drops that happened, they seem to be building chemistry with Luck.

Avery practiced I believe, so he should be good to go. I'd actually like to see Brazill a little more, he seems to have very solid hands. Very nice possession WR it looks like, had a nice little toe tap catch on the sidelines for a first down.

Hopefully Avery is good to go Thursday. He's really been a nice target for Luck and if anything he helps keep the safety on his side deep.

Brazill reminds me A LOT of Reggie when he was a rookie. He's got good hands and is a fairly decent route runner. He's gonna be one of those guys that when everything clicks for him and he gets playing time he's going to shine.

I still think Avery needs to be kept for next year and just keep letting these guys grow with Luck. There isn't any reason for the Colts to target a WR next year. Keep it rolling with these guys and our TE's. It wouldn't surprise me if Reggie is still playing for the Colts after his current contract is up. He looks like a young man out there and is playing at such a high level.

Personally I think Avery should be used primarily to go deep and limit his shorter catches that require YAC in heavy traffic. I worry about his durability. It's tough to be "NFL" fast when you are dinged up. Go deep Donnie!

I think he has promise, but didn't he have a couple drops Sunday too?

I am forever grateful for all the great players I've been fortunate enough to watch play the game with horseshoes on their helmets,

and I'm eagerly anticipating the opportunity to see which new Colts become the stars and fan favorites of tomorrow.

I could be wrong... Not the first time... But I could swear #15 had at least 1 critical pass careen off his hands.

Brazil did drop a pass and was out of place in another. Avery should play and the injury problem hasn't really been a issue this year. It's really just been his hands and timing with Luck. Remember we run the same offense the steelers had. Avery fills the Mike Wallace role of going deep and running slants with an occasional stop/comeback route. He will be fine.

Hey All

Fairly new on the board here, so I can't start a new thread, but I thought this was as good a place as any to post this with respect to Avery.

I haven't seen this mentioned or posted anywhere - so please forgive if it has been....

As far as physical stature goes - has anyone else noticed that we seem to be grooming (to my immense delight) three Marvin Harrisons?

Avery 5'11" 200 lbs
Brazil 5'11" 191 lbs
Hilton 5'9" 183 lbs

Harrison 6' 175" lbs

Allo four lightning quick!

It tickles me.

That deep catch by Avery tonight was sic! Perfectly thrown by Luck and he went up and got it. Big boy catch.

"Anyone a die harder fan? I will be there believing to the end. Who is with me?" Thread started by Steveeoaktree33 at 2:49 PM of the day the Colts executed the second largest comeback in NFL playoff history. Very few concurred.

Hey guys,

New poster here. I have been a Colts fan all of my life. I really like what we have going here with our recievers. I think Donnie Avery has really started showing that speed that he has been said to have. He is a big play guy, and I have a feeling that Luck and Avery will be a deadly combo for years here. I was skeptical when the Colts grabbed him in free agency at first, but it seems to have paid off. Go Colts!

He had one very nice grab that was almost picked, than dropped the perfect throw that was in his hands. Ahhh I love to see them building chemistry, just have to work on the focus.

I think he might have been jostled just enough before the ball reached his hands. Tough PI for the refs to call after so many tough calls went against the Jags , but I think he was inpeded.

Another bad week of drops for us as a team, and Avery's would-be bomb was one of them. Hope he gets it out of his system along with the rest of the guys (heck, even Reggie dropped one today). Still love the vertical threat he gives us, DA just needs to reel those in.

Reggie dropped two back to back. It happens even to the greats.

I have enjoyed Avery's play so far this season, even with the drops.

Most people, including myself, were questioning how fast and how durable he was coming off the ACL.

Avery and Hilton are the 2 guys that help stretch the field for Luck and helps Luck with the highest passing yards per attempt in the league.

lol at Marvin being 6 foot. He's barely 5'9, with shoes. It always cracked me up when they listed him as being that tall

You're not the only one. But he made up for the Deep Drop by making the Jump ball grab that Luck threw beautifully over Aaron Ross' Fingers

I thought Avery made a pretty good contribution today.


I agree besides that second deep shot down field that should have been caught he was very productive, I just want to see him become consistent on those vertical routes, if he's able to do that our Offense becomes an unstoppable force.

I'm just glad he's even been this effective in our offense so far. Most had him written off as a has-been before the season started

    Thanks for all the well wishes and kind words. I just got home from the hospital right before midnight Thanksgiving, so I can be home with family. I'm still not totally recovered, but they are trying a different and stronger IV med, to hopefully kick this out for good...Love you all!
