The Pats have won 4 SB's and been to 6, most think Brady is still one of the Greatest ever regardless of this, some think he is the Greatest. I don't even like the Pats and I still put Brady in my Top 5, his resume as far as winning is better than Peyton's as well. I think he knew what was going on and I think he panicked and his phone destroyed but I have no proof of it but who cares really what I think or any fan in reality. It really boils down to Integrity more than anything with me. I don't like cheaters or liars so that is why some of my posts may come off harsh. If it was Peyton doing this I would say the same thing. I wouldn't rank him as not a Top 5 QB ever but I would think less of him and think he should be punished if he put the Integrity of the game in jeopardy.
It's not that he didn't go to an elite school, it's that the school he went to prefers the running game and short passing to the TE to taking a lot of shots down field.
The offense he played in was just not designed to take advantage of his talents. So he didn't put up gaudy stats.
They may flame out but their QB is clearly legit and they spanked the crap out of the Colts at the end of the season.
Do i think they are SB bound? No.
But they are certainly a contender in this division. You can't just look at the Jags on our schedule and pencil in 2 wins anymore.
When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.
I'm still late to the party, but story of my life. I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.
My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.
My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.
1. Peyton Manning
2. Marvin Harrison
3. Reggie Wayne
4. Dallas Clark
5. Brandon Stokely
Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.
You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points. You are wrong. I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion. My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.
I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy. Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.
I have been posting for probably a year or so now. I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70. I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98. I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game. We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV! Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
