He sounds like someone who is from someplace else...

The foundation of his piece is that everyone (and specifically the Colts fan) has forgotten Peyton Manning and that could not be further from the truth...

I think this message board is proof of that..

Hr cherry-picks stats....What he does not say is that Luck has thrown for 3,200 yards in 11 games, a pace that will shatter the rookie record...

..and the 13 interceptions he cites as failure....many would consider (13 in 11 games) success for a rookie...

He also doesn't mention that of the 11 offensive starters for the Colts last week (vs. Buffalo) I believe only Reitz, Costanzo and Wayne were even in the Colts organization in February

He says Luck is honest and bland......

He's never listened to Peyton, I guess...

He says the Colts arent a great team........True....that's why its a story that they're 7-4...with a fighting chance to reach the playoffs

Who's responsible....?

There has to be a little Luck in there somehwere.

meh.

He's not the first to bash Indy and he won't be the last. I'm just surprised he kept Irsay's name out of it and instead decided the fans need chastised.

We'll need stuff like this written so that we have something to laugh at later.

Did someone get Luck-y with the writer's wife? Why is he so bitter...He big upped the other young QB's from Texas (Dalton, RGIII) but insults Luck??? Dont get it, but its definitely very disrespectful...

...well, the whole 'forgot about Peyton Manning' thing was uncalled for. A little stirring the pot I guess, remember, not many people like the Colts down here, so I'm not surprised an article like this has popped up.

he has an inflated head because the texans are good two years out of 10. lets see if his big mouth is still as big when he faces luck.

I guess we're supposed to wallow in Peyton sorrow forever.

If this guy had a name anyone knew, I guess the rivalry would be on.

Now I'm a little more enthusiastic about weeks 15 & 17.

Not a football threat. Oh well, only 1 way to show him, in 2 weeks!!!

While Luck has made it easier to move on, I just do not see Indy as being a disrespectful sports town. We cherish the ones who were good to us, Peyton and Reggie Miller, and soon Reggie Wayne etc.

I do agree we are fairweather fans and need some star power to make us follow any sport other than basketball which is more ingrained over generations.

This guy is a joke. He wrote on draft night how we would regret taking JJ Watt instead of Nick Fairley.

http://houston.cultu...-houston-lover/

He writes for 'culture map houston'...which is like...one step above an airline magazine. Just saying.

Lol. I scratched my head at the Watt pick but I didn't think we would regret it. Reaping the benefits now though!

Let's be honest the title of this thread is wrong. This guy is no writer. Getting your hind parts smacked for 8 years in a row will make a lot of people bitter. Someone needs to take the keyboard away from this guy, before he embarrasses himself and his employer even more.

Manning's gone, Luck's the future. How can we not embrace our QB. I'm on the Luck train whether we're 7-4 or 4-7.

Opinions are like armpits... I don't think many on this board have forgotten Peyton. Are we wrong to embrace Luck? No! Horseshoe first. He sounds like the fair weather fan honestly.

I also want to say that he is not the class of Houston fans. All that I have met have been very pleasant and respectful towards Peyton, Andrew, and our organization.

You know your a hack "journalist" (using the term as losely as possible) when you have to go into the comments left for you to fight people.

Just scrolled through and he responded to every 4 or 5th post with trollish comments you wouldn't even see on a message board.

Yikes.

The only myth this guy accurately mentions is that Andy Dalton LED his team to the playoffs...as a rookie

Dalton averaged 210 yards passing on a 9-7 team that was 9th (among 32 teams) in team defense

I get why we may not be the must popular team with the Texan's fans but its still no excuse for poor journalism. It made Skip look like the paragon of integrity and virtue.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle is the only guy to read for Texans and other NFL articles in Houston.

That is so bad it is almost funny! Nobody will forget Manning. But lets to forget when Harbaugh got dumped and Manning came in, it was all Manning. Not that Harbaugh was the QB Manning is, but he got the Colts to the playoffs.

    • I missed it. I'm watching the Mets game and there has been no mention of this today.  I hope I get to see it later. I like both players very much. And Mike helped us Mets fans briefly forget about 9/11 with his unforgettable home run the first game back after the tragic event. I was happy to be there to see it.    Congrats to Mike and Junior.
    • I agree with equating the substance abuse test to somewhat of an IQ test. It is also a discipline test. Those who are not too bright or disciplined will get caught.   It seems that players take amphetamines to give them an edge or greater confidence in games.  Most will not use them in the offseason because there are no games to be played. So, those who take amphetamines are likely not to test positive because they are not tested during the season. Right?     I am definitely not a proponent of legalizing marijuana, but the NFL's position on this is akin to the marijuana laws that have gotten poor and less educated folks imprisoned for possession.  If the NFL is testing for illicit drugs, then they should test for them randomly anytime in the year, not only from April to August. JMHO
    • Just watched Mike Piazza and my favorite baseball player of all time Ken Griffey Jr. get inducted into Coopers Town! Very well deserved for both men! Congrats! Great memories watching The Kid as a kid. Best baseball player I have ever seen play  
    • **UPDATE**   I set the Draft Order by reverse rankings from last year. As of note, I used the playoff results and not the final season results for setting the draft order.   As it stands here is the draft order by Team Name: 1. Punters be Winning too 2. Team IndyD4u 3. Mike Strahans Tooth Gap 4. Luck Be A Lady 5. Team Coltman 6. Indy Bluefire 7. Swoope There It Is 8. Go Pack Go 9. Phillip my Ball to 12.5 PSI 10. Team Hulce   I also edited the LM Note a slight bit.  Instead of suggesting replacing a WR for a Flex, I changed it to replacing a TE for a Flex.  This is only a suggestion and not what will happen.  Must be approved by a supermajority 7/10.  p   If there are teams that do not respond by deadline or do not wish to resume, they will be removed and spots will open up.  This means Draft order spots will open up.  Starting from #1 position down, you will be given the option to either move UP one or DOWN one spot, depending on what is open around you.     After all positions are determined, new entrants will get to select their spots from  the remaining available; in the order of reply to this topic.   Tentatively set the draft date to Sept. 3rd at 9pm.  Obviously this will change, but wanted to get it set up for now.        
    • If we get the run game going and make more of an effort to run the ball that will help some.....Otherwise I'm expecting a 20th or worse defense yards per game average
