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.

I'm surprised that some of you are surprised that Redding is captain.

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. :(

    • Let's talk UDFA: Mekale Mckay
      Continuing on the series with one player who probably has the most mouth watering measurements, especially in this year's draft. At 6'4 207 he ran a 4.55 40. I am surprised someone didn't grab him with a 7th because of his size alone. He was a basketball star and had offers from Kentucky but chose football instead. He's a big bodied WR that knows how to use it going after the ball. He has good straight line speed and is a perfect WR for a back shoulder fade. He has a limited route tree and doesn't really have quickness coming out of his breaks. His hands are not the greatest and he is not a willing blocker and looks lost trying to block. I will definitely be watching him during training camp. I see him going on the practice squad though I can't see the staff letting a kid go with his measurables. I don't think he would have as big of an impact as smith but if he could improve his rout running and catching he could have a shot at being a 5th to 6th WR but likely a practice squad player

      Ah, did not know that. Thanks.

      Regarding my all-time favorite Cub, that Is really tough for me to decide. I loved Sandberg but what Dawson did in 1987 gave me chills! As of now I am loving Jake LOL.

      Gil Hodges will always hold a special place in the hearts of Mets fans. The Met have not retired many numbers but Hodges' number is retired.    Is his wife from Princeton too? She used to come to Mets games on special occasions

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London

      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
