But I figured I'd highlight some Colts specific ones.

Out of 16 "experts"...

10 select Andrew Luck as Offensive Rookie (2 for Doug Martin, 4 for Robert Griffin)

8 select Bruce Arians/Chuck Pagano as Coach of the Year (7 for Mike Smith, 1 for Joe Philbin)

14 select Colts to make an AFC Wild Card spot (every answer contains one of Ravens/Steelers and Colts/Dolphins).

Very flattering words for Luck, the team as a whole, and Bruce and Chuck.

It's lovely to see how some of these clowns think...

And it's not much... ..

Could the Coach of the Year award be split that way?

IF INDY keeps winning.. I can totally see BRUCE win COTY.

No Co... The Coach of the YEAR.

Bottom line.... He is getting it done.

It's only the half way, so there's always that chance things could go south for us, but nonetheless, it's great to see some love going our way. :) ORY, COY, Wildcard. all in the majority, that's some inspiring news.

But Andrew Luck suffers from accuracy issues and doesn't have a deep ball, why would the majority of experts pick him to be rookie of the year? He's already reached his ceiling and cannot get better and his mechanics are flawed. There is no possible way he should be in the running for OROTY.

haha

Yes I'm kidding btw.......

I guess the 'experts' don't read this Forum.

I wouldn't be surprised if both Luck and RG3 share the rookie of the year award. Although I would prefer that Luck get it.

    • Thanks for your link above to such a fascinating article NCF. I keep coming back to something Shannon Sharpe always says on his new FS1 TV show called "Skip & Shannon"...Real meaningful social change always needs to make others uncomfortable in order to succeed & promote a large shift in daily society & Mr. Sharpe is exactly right. Nothing will change for the better without ruffling some feathers thru rebellion against the way things are. History has demonstrated this fact for decades & centuries. Relax, I'm not about to lead an angry mob with pitch forks & torches here.    The other thing I noticed is when the President of the Players Association said he reached out to Colin Kaep by phone for support I laughed because if the Niners released him tomorrow & Kaep wasn't in the league anymore, would Mr. Smith even care? I highly doubt it. We only care if that QB is on a football roster. The 49ers give him a platform to express his views globally. Take that access away & Colin virtually becomes irrelevant overnight as a celebrity with clout & a public figure of stature.    Bringing up boxer Mohammad Ali was fascinating too because he paid a heavy price for his views not to serve overseas in SE Asia, which pales in comparison to the minor heat Colin is enduring right now. It's not even close. 
    • These guys who kneel or sit for the anthem are PEACEFULLY protesting, they are not hurting a fly......It's MLK style protesting with nothing but being peaceful about it. They are not violent or hurting ANYONE directly. They are just expressing their personal views and some do care about those who are oppressed even if they themselves have money.   If you crack down on the players individuality too much down the road then you might as well call it the "National Fascist League."     Ratings may be down since a lot of late night games suck too. How many times this year have the Bears been on at night for example? And a lot of stars are out this year........and a few have retired like Manning who was a face of the league for so long. MNF this past week sucked with the Falcons destroying the Saints bad defense.   Brady is out for another week and I bet Pats games sky rocket in ratings with his return. JJ Watt is now out. Adrian Peterson is out. The list goes on.......   People get bored. And actually the peaceful protesting gives the NFL attention so in a way they should be thankful for it. If people don't watch since a few sit or kneel for the Anthem then I give up on those people and it just further proves the point of someone like Kaepernick. 
    • Problem here is most fans only see the te as pass catching.  They don't factor in blocking at all.     Check out gores to run and see where Allen took his dude
    • I wake up at 4:30 for work, so 4 more hours of sleep and eating breakfast during a Colts game sounds fanfreakingtastic to me!
    • JV....   It appears you're right.     I just surfed the net looking for information one way or the other.     And here is an interview with DeMaurice Smith the head of the NFLPA,  and in the interview he says there is nothing in the CBA giving the players a right to protest.       Interesting.    Directly contradicts what I heard.   But if Smith is saying it,  it has to be true.      I'll link the interview....   https://www.thenation.com/article/what-the-nfl-players-union-chief-has-to-say-about-colin-kaepernicks-protest/   For some unknown reason,  the website is not letting my cut and paste the quote...    something about formatting issue....    but the answer is the 2nd paragraph after the question about what would the union do to support the players.....            
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
