Houston writer rips Indy fans and Luck

230 posts in this topic

I don't view Colts-Texans as a rivalry. Yet. The Texans were just not good in the first years and couldn't really compete with anyone, much less the Colts. We started getting decent around 2007 and started playing close games with Indy in 2008. In 2011 when we got really good the Colts were terrible without Manning, and that second meeting was Yates and no Andre after we clinched. Maybe this year is the start of a true rivalry, it's kinda crazy that the schedule is the way it is, having it build up to be a really good matchup late in the year.

The only rivalry we've really had is with the Titans, because they used to be the Oilers and we hate Bud Adams and everyone hates the Titans anyway.

I would say the Texans were NOT horrible per say. They just had no answer for Peyton Manning. That's why Mario Williams was drafted in 2006 vs Reggie Bush by then GM Charley Casserly. Hiring HC Gary Kubiak was also a smart move that turned the fate of the Texans for good IMO in addition to acquiring RB Arian Foster as well.

Also TBH, DC Wade Phillips fell in your lap & he was a God send after being fired from Dallas in 2010 because your pass rush, secondary, and DB coverage was simply awful before Wade showed up in Houston.

Frist thing about article is the guy clearly is a hater & frist class * who is bias againest Indy. I Think we all love Peyton & most didn't want to see him go & all wished him the best! Luck is about as far away of a game manager as you can get he CARRIES our Offense. He brings up Dalton HE WAS THE ULTAMITE GAME MANAGER!! The writer clearly dislikes Indy for kicking Houstons butt for years & they the Texans don't get the National respect he probably deserve. I personally have respect for Houston but hate them the MOST of all teams in our divison even when we would beat them they were close hard fought games inwhich they would whine about after like babies. He was probably ragging on the attention Luck gets but honestly I still feel we are not a very good team, we play hard & have a rookie QB we lean HEAVILY on but we are inproving and are tough. We still have some GAPING holes. I realy didn't care much about the Houston games becuase I really didn't think they would matter much to our final outcome playoff wise, there I said it PLAYOFFS, my inturst was more to see how we compared to them, but now I do care!!. RG3 is having a very nice year He also plays on a MUCH BETTER TEAM not record wise but Washington is better! He would have been good here as well, I don't think he would stand up to the pounding Luck takes on a Daily bais OUR OL IS HORRIABLE other than Castonzo who finally seems to be getting it. This guy gave the Colts & all of us more reason to Hate Houston, & they better get use to it They HATE THAT INDY IS GOOD AGAIN! And they thought they were done with us when peyton left & we blow up the team HA HA WERE BACK for many years to come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :blueshoe: :disco:

Awesome post!!

This stinks. I had a great idea for an article I was gonna write but now I fear it is too late as it will appear I'm a copy cat (never mind the fact that I've never written an article before). The main theme of my article was about how Houston fans have placed Arian Foster in such high regard while totally forgetting about Earl Campbell. Come on Houston fans...start livin in the was.

Here is a response article to it.

http://www.coltsauth...er-written.html

Any interesting counter argument Narcosys to Mr. Baldwin's piece. My favorite part of the entire article:

The Colts get the win (20-13) and Luck draws all the praise. It doesn't matter that he throws for only 240 yards, marking the second time in three games that he hasn't cracked 250 yards.

straw man argument: (n) A rhetorical device that is meant to easily prove that one’s position or argument is superior to an opposing argument. However, the straw man argument is regarded as a logical fallacy, because at its core, the person using the device misrepresents the other person's argument.

I was at that game. Also, I read and watched lots and lots of analysis after that game. Not ONE person gave Luck any sort of credit for anything, nor should they have. T.Y. Hilton, though, got lots of credit. The Colts defense got lots of credit. The cheerleaders who shaved their heads got lots of credit.

To recap: Luck did not draw “all the praise.” Luck did not draw “most of the praise” or “some of the praise” or “any praise whatsoever, in any conceivable fashion.”

Jealousy or projection perhaps Mr. Baldwin? Accuse the opposition of doing something petty and small because your team has drawn the short Playoff straw & failed to cross the SB thresh hold perhaps. "Me thinks you doth protest a little too much sir." Yes Mr. Baldwin, the truth does hurt sometimes now doesn't it? There there...Put some ice on it, have a stiff drink, but it may not look any better tomorrow morning in the light of day Mr. Baldwin. :facepalm:

Most of us on here rip people / teams / players /posters / towns / other sports / coaches to shreads on a regular basis. Yet when we read something we don't like, we get all offended. Double standard at its best, me thinks.....

And anyway, who cares what anybody from Houston says?

What wasn't offensive about the article?

This guy has a secret crush on AL methinks.

I was surpised at Bruce Arians comment about "its the other 5 rookies we have to worry about"...

that was kind of messed up IMO

and besides...who exactly is he talking about?

Hilton? The guy is YAC ALL DAY on the slant.

Avery? mr. clutch

Allen? OMG amazing hands

Ballard? BEAST

Fleener....ok, so one rookie we need to worry about. Threw a nice block last week to spring Ballard, but yea... one.

Nonsense. Moving on.

Pardon? I have no clue what you mean Joker, sorry....

You said we get all offended when we read something we don't like, I was saying the piece was just flat out offensive and seems it was meant to be that way.

...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.

agreed but still should not have been done

Sigh...

I think the word is "Ascend" not "pretend". But that's just me.

The website the writer is writing on is a culture type website here in town for those that need to find directions to the zoo and other stuff to do in town. The Houston Chronicle is the only city paper and they have nothing but praise for Luck and his family.

    • The only way Allen gets 30 Million is if he plays all four years.      And, at this rate,  he'll be lucky to play two years.      The one thing no one can complain about are the contracts we've given out.    If Allen doesn't produce,  he'll be gone in two seasons,  not four,  and won't make anything close to $30 Mill.   The Colts do an excellent job on contracts.    One of the best teams in the NFL in this area.      
    • That kid was really happy TY made his day. Nice! 
    • I know the regular season hasn't started yet, but cutting Castonzo even considering such a proposal makes me wanna make a suggestion to some fans....   Last call on the booze & other recreational products okay. Mandatory prohibitions start now. 
    • I am VERY aware of the injuries and YES I should've written the post because whether it's preseason or not this team is on shaky ground. First off the problems that have plagued this team STILL loom! The o-line is still bad. Did they REALLY think adding 1 new starter at center to go along with the SAME subpar group would make a big difference? Now Jack (who may be the best of a bad bunch) is hurt. Dwayne Allen is up to his same old "I'm hurt" tricks. SLOW starts are the norm now whether it's PRESEASON or not.   Of all the defensive players you listed above ONLY 2 are difference makers and the rest are serviceable. This team lacks focus, discipline, appears soft in the trenches (o and d-lines) and carry conservative game plans against the better teams of the league leading to some very embarrassing losses. Those SAME traits can be overcome against bad teams in the form of dog fight wins.   I DON'T base the team's success or failure off the PRESEASON so I'm not doom or gloom. Under Dungy and Manning I don't think they won 4 games combined over the years but when the first team played THEY LOOKED GOOD and it was the terrible depth that contributed greatly to the losses. With this Colt team I was HOPING to see a much improved o-line, a more physical team on BOTH sides of the ball, faster starts on offense (instead of wasting early downs with runs up the middle), a healthy Allen contributing something ON the field, our defense generating some type of pressure on opposing qbs and watch the battle unfold for second string behind Luck. The margin for error will be small this year because the division will be much better and if this version of the Colts can't get any of their past problems fixed in the dress rehearsal what makes you think they can under Chuck when they go live this year?
