I'm a new Colts fan! Why, you ask?

71 posts in this topic

Welcome! I say this because I want to see this fanbase grow for all the right reasons. I want to see Colts jerseys being worn like we see Steelers or Cowboys jerseys at games they arent even playing in by their fans. Living on the east coast and having always been a Colts fan, sometimes I wondered if I`m the only Colts fan on earth. Until I met my wife, an Indy native and then finding great fans on here.Walking into a sports store out there while visiting her parents and seeing nothing but Colts stuff was the most awsome thing for me. Speed Blue everywhere! The Indy Colts should be "Americas team"..get the word out!

Tell a friend......we welcome all new comers. Ya know when you think about it, i guess i take for granted how good of an organization this is.......really, we dont deal with the drama that teams like Dallas and The Aint's DEAL with and i like it! Also i like the traditional feel, maybe im a homer but this team feels like home to me, my family all love the Colts, it brings us together, we are sad for a loss.....and on top of the world on a win. But our dedication is never in question whether we are in the Superbowl playing the Bears or 2-14 and watching our future Hall of fame quarterback leave town. One thing i always know is the sun will rise over Indianapolis and we will be champs again!!!!!

Unfortunately, we are sadly lacking representation in Antarctica.......gotta get more fans down there.

On a related note, how cool would it be if when the NFL branches out to other countries, they put a team down there? Lambeau Field ain't got nothing on the Arctic Tundra.

Good to have you on board Coltsfan_nyc.

I cant say Im surprised people are becoming fans of ours. We have a very likeable team and a VERY likeable Head Coach who is battling for his life. How can you not like this team?

Welcome to the forum & fan base.

I've been a Colts fan since '65, when I was 9.

This is a pretty good place to be.

Everyone's generally accepting of other's opinions, and there are some very knowledgeable people posting here, as well.

BTW, you got the division spot on.

Welcome, Coltsfan_NYC. We have a wonderful owner who keeps his noggin out of football business for the most part and lets the football people do their thing, and that has fostered a culture of winning, IMO. Dungy was a great hire from a point of view of establishing a sound culture of character focus as well, and it sure has carried over for the most part, IMO.

I am sure you will like it here. And last but not least, the mods on this forum do a terrific job moderating and keeping things civil, makes for a pleasant experience for all of us. :)

After having not been to Indy in 20+ years, I've taken my family there a couple of times since this past summer.

I agree with you, it is awesome to see all the Colts hear in stores, and being worn around town.

Actually, I took my son to his game (Dolphins) a couple of weeks ago.

It was a great game to see, and he was in awe.

I'm from NC, I first started liking the colts about 14 years ago, my older brothers team was the dolphins and they faced the colts that year and I just stuck with them since. I survived the Peyton manning break-up on march 7. I don't really like to see people hop on bandwagons when that team starts doing good all the sudden, but o well. Welcome to the blue man group

It was a cut and paste from a Raiders forum, I believe.

We stopped for breakfast one Friday morning on our way out there and all the employees were wearing Colts jerseys or t-shirts. Blue Friday is awsome, something I wish we had the luxury of around here! I`m 43 years old and still in awe anytime I walk into a stadium the Colts are playing in..lol, some kids never grow up

Welcome to the Blue Nation!!! I married a beautiful lady from upstate NY a little over 2 years ago, and she's finally going to move here to Indiana in January. All of her family are Giants fans, but they all respect the Colts so I never get any flack from them. Once she's here, I'm sure she'll pay more attention to the Colts, but I don't expect her to change her allegiance to the Giants. She'll have co-favorite teams to root for now.

Wife and I are going to the Colts-Bills game and we're very excited!! This will be our 3rd trip to LOS in the past 2 years.

Glad to have you here!!!

From one out of state Colts fan to another, welcome aboard.

Honestly you won't find a classier organization in all of football. Thank God our board is not flooded with QB controversy, bad ownership threads, uniform changing threads... that stuff doesn't go on here but it does in nearly every other fan base.

Here you just sit back and enjoy Sundays. BTW, I reccomend a field trip to Indy. Best Midwestern City in the US and I've been to them all.

    • https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=4wVAee2z-aE   I don't mean to sound condescending or insulting. But its frustrating to me how hard it is to scout for one, and how often people are wrong. I'm wrong about expectations from players sometimes, and but with the exception of alshon Jeffries, my scouting predictions have been really good for about 7 years.    My favorite quote was saying morris Claiborne was a bumb and I put Casey heywars as my top 3 corner in the draft when about 6 or 7 were in front of him. I think he was my 2nd. Not to brag or nothing.    But if you dont see a bigger, and somehow stronger Dwight freeney out of this dude, I dont know what to tell you. This is an easy pick up, no trade needed at 15. He a day one starter   
    • Oh yeah genius. How many times do you see qbs, especially at WVU getting sacked in wildcat offenses. Its designed to get rid of the ball in seconds.    You can't judge of one game, and he played with a very high motor. Which is more than I van say about bejorn, give up on the play warner.    You guys are really that blind you can't see the Shir speed and acceleration off the snap?    You can't see the force and quickness of his spin moves?   You can't see his knack for rushin hands up.    You can't see the power in his bullrush? Are you kidding me?   And BTW, this is a breakdown video of every play he was involved in.   This is not a highlight tape. Highlight tapes are for kids. Breakdown videos are for ametuer nfl scouts. Real scouts have all the film.    Let me post a highlight video so you can see the differnce
    • I think it would also help to see if converted players (went from a 4-3 DE to a 3-4 OLB, or vice versa) are riskier choices than players who stay in the same system. 
    • He's also noted for his coverage ability. But yeah I need to see what he does at the combine first. 
    • I agree. Like i said i have no issue in drafting a DE if it is BPA, just that i wouldnt single out the position as a "major need". I think it is definitely a need, but not on the same level as olb at the moment. Not to the same level where that if there was 1 olb and 1 de of similar grade available at our pick that i would choose the de over the olb. To me, for it to be a major need it would have to be to the point where i would be very unhappy if nothing was done at the position by the end of the offseason. I could live with DE position as it is. But I  would be livid if maggitt and Ayers are our starting OLBs week 1.   I think we are basically in agreement and just getting caught up in semantics. We are saying the same thing, im just on the left of it looking right and you are on the right looking left (if that makes any sense).
