Reggie & Peyton MVP consideration

8 posts in this topic

Good for both of them! I am happy for Peyton doing well & at this rate, Reggie should be considered for Offensive Player of the Year.

Love Reggie and the many great catches, but much of his success is a result of Over-Targeting and the cause of so many interceptions.

And 3 td receptions is disappointing.

It's nice that Reggie is getting recognition, but MVP and Comeback Player of the Year should go to Manning.

AP has more to gain with a tougher schedule to run against the rest of the way while Peyton has an easier schedule to win games against.

    • ESPN shows a troublesome Colts drafting trend...
      I'm not sure what you are disagreeing with other than that you wanted more early picks used on D. I can accept that, and we can all find opportunities in the last 4 drafts that we could have made different choices.  Those are simply choices that had to be made along the way - acceptable trade offs with scarce resources.   I didn't say or imply that we had adequately protected Luck, I said that we had succeeded in establishing him - that is the main goal that any franchise should have for their young QB.  Yes, protecting him should be included, but those that want to pick apart what hasn't been done to their satisfaction are completely missing the point of how difficult it is to get your franchise QB established as an elite player that the league and his teammates see as a threat to win any game against any team.  We now have that.  I don't see how anyone can lament that, or fail to give credit to coaches and staff that supplied the resources to make it happen. All evidence in the NFL suggests that it doesn't happen in a vaccuum.   If by questionable free agent O-linemen you are referring to Todd Herremans, who started all of 2 games here, then OK, that was a miss (at a very low cost).  If you are referring to Cherilus and Thomas, then I guess you are referring to bad luck, and maybe some poor medical advice.  I get that the efforts to build an O-line haven't yielded a top 10 group yet - and people have a right to be frustrated by that - so be it.  That is simply a position group where results will always lag inputs, and often by a year or more.  QB may be the toughest position to develop in sports, but O-line has to be the toughest position group to develop.  The Colts are among the majority of teams - even winning teams - that have only been able to make marginal O-line improvement since 2012.     Most of this I addressed above with BOTT, no need to restate here.  However, you have taken me out of context.  I said that we have established Luck as a franchise QB - that is the Mission Accomplished.  That is what I don't think anyone can lament.  It's hard to do, and required a commitment of resources that have coagulated effectively to produce a great result....we have the QB that everyone wishes they could build their future around.  That is certainly to Luck's credit, but it is very much to the Staff's credit as well.     This is not NFL Utopia.  Its simply the NFL, and winning is a messy business.    I genuinely feel the sense of urgency that I think drives you.  You are understandably a Luck fan first and a Colts fan second, just as I am a Drew Brees fan first and a Saints fan 2nd (or 3rd in this case).  Time/Age is undefeated, and you feel the clock starting to tick on Luck's prime.  Your tolerance for the messy business of winning has finally worn thin and yielded to a desire for football Utopia.     How frustrated would you be if you were an Aaron Rodgers Packers fan?  Their clock is ticking fast, and they are in danger of bungling his multiple superbowl winning potential, just as the Colts did with the Manning years.  It happens, because that is the nature of the beast.   Without the Tuck Rule, the Pats might not have 1 Superbowl, let alone 4.  The Tuck Rule cleared the path for the Pats to establish Brady.  It seems far fetched now, but there is no guarantee that Brady becomes the trusted winner that he has if that call doesn't bounce in his favor, and he doesn't go on to lead the game winning drive in the Superbowl.     Establishing your QB is the first piece of the mission.  We have the best closer in the game, and his teammates believe it.  Mission accomplished.

      Andrew, here's $10.  There's a fresh Jackson coming your way every time I score.

    • Which one most likely to happen...
      Yeah, if I had to rank them I'd put Allen last and 4500 next to last. Not doubting Allen or Andrew, just hoping we don't have to throw that much.  Especially in the fourth Q.
    • Which one most likely to happen...
      I think Gore getting 1000 is the most possible cause he seems * off that he didn't get it last year. I think he is going to run over some people this year especially with our improved O-line!

      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.   Favorite Colts:   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.

      Hey guys,   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!
