Did you buy the Sports Illustrated with Luck on the Cover?

22 posts in this topic

I hope you did. It's a MUST for your Fan Cave!

But... more to the point, the Peter King story is simply great.

Half is about Luck... the other half is about Pagano....

It's a great read! Hope you bought it. I think when you wake-up tomorrow it'll be too late. I think the new Sports Illustrated comes out on Wednesday....

If you can find a copy somewhere --- buy it! You won't regret it....

U r right. Bought it in airport to read on way to ford field. Great pick me up. Thinking about framing it alongside the front page of detroit's monday paper headline "Tough Luck". It had picture of Luck running in behind that last td pass to be ready to block for his receiver if needed.

Eventually, someone will post it online on Colts Forum or I will just read it at Barnes & Noble. I just want the information inside not the actual SI periodical itself.

Was "lucky", and found it at the local Books of Million bookstore. Nice article. I love Andrew's work ethic and down to earth attitude.

people still buy magazines?

I subscribed after the SB win to get the swag. Probably read a third of the magazines. I get free mags every now and then using airline miles and end up tossing them without reading. By time anything is in print, it's already been on the web long ago.

I'm a subscriber so I got mine in the mail. And I put in the front room so EVERYONE CAN SEE IT when they come in my home.

I subscribe and mine was delivered, too. Enjoyed the article, although King had us at 8-4 when we were 7-4, but we took care of that on Sunday :)

    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      It speaks volumes that you only got down to position 5 before my initial reaction was 'oh my God'.   4 position groups where I'm generally happy - including Special Teams and a O-Line that was an apparent weak point last year and has only had a rookie center brought into the starting group. Eek!

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      No products are really finished coming out of college but their are more polished products than Clark coming out of college at his position and what I saw while watching him is a player that was a 4th-5th round O Lineman
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      I know. By my compliment I was simply saying (Obviously unclearly) that I thought he went a round to early at least. I know how the draft works. Really I do
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Just curious.....    do you know the story of 2015 OT DJ Humphrey from Florida?   He was drafted by Arizona in the 1st round last year.     And he did not play a single snap in 2015.    In fact,  he didn't even dress for a single game.     He was on the 53 man roster --- no way around that, if he wasn't he be snapped up by another team if he was on the practice squad --- but he sat on the sidelines for all 16 games.   And here's the deal --- it was specifically by DESIGN.    That was Arizona's plan.    They knew that Humphrey got poor coaching in college.    But he had tools you simply can't teach.    So, they red-shirted him for a year and the goal is that he starts this year.     Will it work?     I don't know,  but I hope so.    I'm rooting for Humphrey,  for Arians, who clearly signed-off on the idea -- and for the Cardinals for being so forward thinking.   That brings us to Clark.   He doesn't have the same measurables that Humphrey has.    He has MORE qualities, BETTER qualities.    Height, weight, speed,  arm length, hand size,  Wonderlic,  character --- everything you want.   And the Colts didn't have to spend a 1st round pick on him.    We got him in the 3rd, 82nd overall.   I'm not a religious person,  but God doesn't make many men with the traits that Clark has.    Those traits alone make him a top-100 pick ---- easily.     Seriously.    The hope is that two, three years from now we all look back and think....    "what a steal"...    There are not enough finished products coming out of college these days.   They're not taught the pro game very well.     NFL teams have to find the best athletes and players,  and coach them up.     That's what makes the Clark pick so interesting.     We might strike gold.     And we might not.....    But that's the NFL these days.   Whether any of us likes it or not.....
