Those of you who turned the game off and more...

Recommended Posts

Go watch another team play. I may of been upset at the end result, but this team is FULL of rookies and I'm darn proud of what they did. Would I of liked them to play better? Of course. Was I expecting a win? Not at all. I would of liked it to happen, but I didn't expect it at all.

These are kids fresh out of college going against guy's that have been doing this for years. Cheer up. The season isn't over by any means, and we still have 6 more weeks of football. We can easily go 4-2 or 5-1 in these next set of games. Manning didn't beat Brady this season either, and guess what? Denver's season ISN'T OVER.

If you wanna proclaim the sky is falling and that we're terrible, then go root for another team.

The TRUE and REAL fans will still be here supporting the Colts each week, and I darn sure know I'll be wearing my Luck jersey all the time. Win or lose, I'm here. :blueshoe:

Be proud of this team. They have come farther than most thought possible.

My philosophy at least.

Good young team. The defense needs a lot of work though. We were missing both starting guards and there was still hardly any pressure. You now see why Butler was cut. Solid LB play but I think everywhere else needs work.

So does yours. Talib is a start.

Here was the measuring stick.

We didn't measure up.

The forced throws I've been seeing over the last few weeks - against bad teams, that have been dropped or were brought back due to penalty - ended up as picks today.

Painter/Orlovsky didn't do any worse quite honestly.

Sadly, our running game looked great and we stopped the run fairly well for a bit.

Turning off a game like this doesn't mean you aren't a true fan....get over yourself.

I watched until the 2nd pick 6 Luck threw. The fact that I found a better way to spend the rest of the game doesn't make me any less of a fan then you are.

This team will be fine and hopefully learn from this. Turning it off just means you can make better use of your time.

I think our LBs played ok. but tough matchups when it comes to the Tes and the slot guys unless a team is deep at CB the Pats will be unstoppable.

Well, since you're the judge of who is and who isn't a "TRUE and Real" fan, are there any other rule that all "TRUE and Real" fans must abide by?

That's like saying its OK for assistants and third stringers to go to the locker room because they have better things to do

Oh, I guess supporting them until the end is a waste of time. Get over YOURSELF and don't chastise me for calling someone out. I managed to catch up on laundry and do some dishes, but I STILL had the game on and watched it until the last play.

Don't be a jerk because I made a valid point.

This was the only game on so I didn't have another one to turn to. The only thing learned from this whipping is that we a ways to go to build this team.

It's nothing like that be it's their job to stay there until the end. With your logic, season ticket holders are better fans than non season ticket holders.

Well we made N.E. defense look pretty darn good today. Snowglobe is right...our defense DOES need a ton of work. That was pathetic. Time for Colts to lick their wounds and rebound for Buffalo.

Okay. How about the Steelers and Ravens? I hope that's okay because it is pretty much the only option until Thursday.

They ask way too much of this rookie qb. The punt return and pick 6 put this game on a totally different track than it started on. Everyone relax and remember what thhis year is all about.

They are on the right track and will soon be a dominate team that we can enjoy for years to come.

And as fans its our job to support our team til the end. It doesn't matter if you're in the stands or on your couch.

Its no different from the fans leaving from the stands early to save 5 minutes of time waiting in traffic. I personally don't like people as fans that do that

So I guess fans that get to the game 5 minutes late or fans that leave in the middle of the game to get a beer aren't real fans either?

People who try to judge other people's fandom are ridiculous.

I wasn't aware people were gonna cry over this post.

If you call people out in general by saying they don't deserve to be fans of the team they support and are emotionally attached to... This is what you should expect. I don't understand how it could come as a surprise.

People are not "whining". They're just opposing your view points. If you can't take critique to your opinions, then maybe a discussion forum is not for you.

Lol no. By running late or grabbing a beer, its nothing like leaving early, which kinda seems like you're giving up. Which isn't cool.

seriously? You are comparing a FAN and a PLAYER/COACH and what their requirements should be??

They are PAID to be there....if the Colts want to pay me a 6 figure salary to stand on the sidelines, I'll be there from start to finish too....

Tell me again, how I'm not supporting my team by not watching the last 10 minutes of them getting shredded by turning off the TV.

Do you think they honestly care if I turn off my TV or not?

I never said "you don't deserve to be a fan" I simply said if you do nothing but complain, or want to act as if we're finished after a loss to a Super Bowl team, then go root for someone else. There are plenty of fans who will root and stick around until the end for this team. I'm not opposed to other opinions, but if someone can't handle the truth then maybe they shouldn't be on this forum. I'm more surprised at the negativity that comes with someone speaking the truth than anything. I suppose perception is in the eye of the beholder. My eyes see different than some I guess.

    •   First,  it's NOT one game.....     the O-line was outstanding the last 6-7 games of 2016.   Second,  the line wasn't the issue why we lost Monday night.      The young quarterback was.     Brissett is a talented kid,   but he's got a lot to learn as all young quarterbacks do.        The blitzes that came in the 2nd half are blitzes that Luck can handle....    but most young quarterbacks struggle with them.      Once the offense couldn't move the ball,  we were screwed.     You can only keep the defense on the field for so long before bad things start to happen.   Look.....    you're likely going to get your wish after this season.     Pagano will get fired.    Most of the staff will likely go with him.       Are you going to throw a fit each week we melt down?       Because you'll be doing a lot of it.     And what's the point?    The staff will soon be gone,  maybe not as fast as you'd like,   but they'll be gone.      And a new staff will come in and hopefully that will lead to much, much better football.     It's just a matter of time...    
    •   You can't sidestep this problem.  He started the sitting/kneeling thing and so he's the face and the symbol of it.  People would feel that by signing him you are endorsing his protest, which is going to cost you fans.  That's just the reality of it.   He is grasping at straws, he's hurt either emotionally or financially by the fact that he's not playing.  A couple weeks ago he promised that he would stand for the anthem if he was signed.  Now he's doing this.     But he can't go back now.  That's just the way he is.  He stood up for something and now he's going to pay for it.  It's not any different with anyone else.  Taking a stand on something controversial, no matter how right or wrong you are can cost you.  
    • So every time a player gets beat or has a vision mishap they are regressing? These guys are grooming this year and will only progress through learning and failure.  
    • After 6 games, they are not regressing. They are playing different teams with different formations and looks. Again, 6 games. They don't have a whole lot of experience at this level.
