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.

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.

    • No, not at all. Injuries are the only thing they do report fast.    Last year and the year before that and the year before that they would tweet out updates anytime a play was made, they would tweet out anytime a player looks good or bad, and nearly everytime you'd refresh the browser there would be plenty of updates. This year? They take 20 to 30 minutes to tweet any updates. And when they do tweet its something vague. 
    • Why?  Because they did not tell you Langford's status in the half second after it happened?    
    • Thank you.  My favorite thing about the interview was : " Hope so, hope so. But that’s definitely been a point of focus for me this offseason, just getting better at rushing the passer, because it was almost embarrassing for me last year — at least coming from college, where whenever I worked one of my moves, I kind of expected to beat the guy. In the league, I guess you kind of have to accept that the dudes across from you are getting paid quite a bit, too. You’re not going to win every single time, so that’s definitely been a focal point for me, working on that this offseason for sure. "  
    • Baltimore should Thank Charles Dickens for the name of there football team as well as Cleveland for there team simply put the team & name come from outside Baltimore . They celebrate a team & name whose origins are from elsewhere while trying to tell Indianapolis Colts fans how Colts history & a Lombardi belong to there city .    “You will be greatly shocked and grieved,” Charles Dickens wrote to a friend in 1841, “to hear that the Raven is no more!” His pet raven, Grip, had died. At the behest of his children, Dickens wrote poor Grip in his most recent book, Barnaby Rudge, maintaining in its pages Grip’s name and his loquacious powers of imitating human speech. In 1842, Edgar Allan Poe shook hands with Charles Dickens in Philadelphia, and spoke about Barnaby Rudge, which Poe had recently reviewed with the criticism that Dickens should have given the raven a prophetic presence in the story. In 1845, a prophetic raven was penned into existence, this time by the American author. The creation spawned reproach itself, as some judged Mr. Poe as lying in the shadow of Mr. Dickens, as may be derived from James R. Lowell’s journalistic jingle: Here comes Poe with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,
      Three-fifths of him genius and two-fifths sheer fudge. 170 years later, however, nearly everyone knows Poe’s raven, and nearly no one knows Dickens’—or even Barnaby Rudge’s, for that matter. Grip the raven is forgotten; another raven holds the world in its grip: the raven named Nevermore. As Poe purposefully reincarnated Dickens’ merry raven into his macabre ravings, so too do people purposefully reincarnate the relentless madness of Poe’s raven into their own ravings—making them beautiful in their terror. Your welcome for the history lesson interesting as it might be , Baltimore of old & new was made by others in other cities & enjoyed by many who created nothing much without the help of others so that Baltimore could call it its own , history evolves those who fail to study it do not .

He very likely is either asking to much or teams think he will ask to much after he signs a minimal contract after it expires. Plus there are not many teams with much money actually. Some are over the cap even
