And why aren't captains selected before the season?

With the COLTS, they werent sure who was going to be here, with all the trades and adds and cuts. It looked like my crappy fantasy team(always looking for better players). :funny:

Preseason fight was whether a rookie should be captain.........I guess the young man has earned the respect of his teammates!! :thmup: :thmup: :thmup:

BTW....I voted for Captain Crunch on ST, Captain Kirk on offense, and Captain America for Defense.

Captain Caveman is on the PS (So easy a caveman can do it)

Captain Radar O'Reilly on IR....had to be a part of our MASH unit. :) GO COLTS!

All of these guys are definitely worth getting captain status.

Luck & Wayne have been the main guys on offense.

I still think Bethea should have gotten it but Redding & Mathis are both veteran guys.

Mcafee & Lefeged definitely deserve to be special teams captains.

Redding probably got it because in every video hes motivating the other players, getting them in the mood.

Bethea is more quiet I think

Congratulations to them. Redding is definitely the motivational speaker & Mathis is the motivational performer on Defense imo

Radar was a Corporal. Need to work in Captain Beefheart, Captain Steubing, and maybe Captain Ibrahim...

Can't disagree with any of these choices, they've all pretty much been the defacto captains as it is.

Indeed, aside from being one of the more consistent players on the D, he does seem to be a good motivator of other players.

Not as greatly as this guy (although perhaps that's not the reason he's smiling).

I'm a little surprised Adam V. didn't get one of the ST spots and that picture is awesome.

Excellent selections....the players made the choices, and they know better than anyone who should be captains.

Colts have selected their captains, only the players voted

Mike Chappell@mchappell51

Arians: captains elected--lefeged/mcafee on ST; redding/mathis on defense; wayne/luck on offense.

Those are both odd selections on special teams.......Adam Vinatreri?

Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck and 12-year veteran wide out Reggie Wayne were named team captains on offense. Linebacker Robert Mathis and defensive end Cory Redding, who are both in their tenth year as a pro, were named as defensive captains. Punter Pat McAffe and safety/kick returner Joe Lefeged have been named as captains on special teams.

I like a lot.

Good stuff. If Angerer had remained healthy all season, do you think he would have kept the captaincy? And can you see Jerrell Freeman attaining a captaincy if he continues to play as he has all season?

I was kind of surprised that AV didn't get chosen captain again. Oh Well :sigh: He's been captain for many years. :(

    • Frankly, I think the media uses a flawed business model.   They don't want great ratings, they want continued growth in ratings.  Once a show hits its a plateau, they inevitably begin introducing trashy soap opera stuff to try to capture a new demographic and increase ratings.  If they would just stick to broadcasting football, they would have a popular product year after year, albeit with flat ratings.   Jerry Seinfeld said one of the reasons his show lasted so long was that there was never a message attached to the show.  it was a show about nothing.  If it was run by typical Hollywood people, after a while, Elaine would get pregnant by her boss, tackle the abortion issue; George would be battling substance abuse, etc..  If you noticed, comparing the first Seinfeld episode to the last episode over about 15 years, the characters were in exactly the same place in life.  With a typical media/Hollywood person running the show, each character would have been married and divorced three times with kids trying to find their gender identity.    The media broadcasting the NFL needs to just stick to what the product is and leave it at that.
    • 5 our of 9 chose the Jags   That is good news for the Colts
    • 24-13 Colts. Finally a strong first half   Gore gets 100 yards on the ground and 150 total yfs   Hilton has two scores and Dorsett the other    Bortles gets sacked 4 times
    • The mouthy player just turns my stomach, the "me" player needs to be slapped down   If you look in dictionary under Hard working superstar WR then there is number 88 staring back at you!   Wayne learned under the best and he followed Marvin's lead, We are very blessed to have those two for nearly 20 years
    • The 4 game win streak continues this week   SD  JAX  CHI  HOU    Win those 4 and we're in great shape    Have us finishing 10-6 on the year en route to Super Bowl 51 Victory

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
