You stole this from me on the other thread.

Consider this a cease and desist.

I don't blame him, he's probably ticked off that the Colts go from Manning to Luck and the Texans have to endure another 14 years of competition. He probably wanted the Colts to be in reconstruction mode and to suck for 4-5 years. Sometimes that shocks people when things don't go he way they like.

His articles make the Bleacher report (which I would guess is his utlimate career goal) look like the NY Times or BBC.

I assume (but who knows?) that he is trying to be funny, but totally failing .....

....I can't believe that there are that many worthless sports writers (he's got a long way to go to rise to the bottom where he'll find Bayless, Whitlock, etc)

It appears the rag he writes for is the kind of free tabloid you pick up and skim while in Qdoba or Panera, then throw out with the trash. Like Kravitz, he writes to incite, and thus succeeds when you pick up a paper copy of his his rag, or give him a page hit.

Houston's sports history is that of losing. And as the fifth largest metropolitan area in the US, it has to be devastating to not remotely be discussed in the same way as NY, LA, Chicago, Philly, DC, SF, and worse for them, even Dallas. Add to this inferiority complex the fact the Colts have owned the AFC South since Houston (who couldn't keep their first few teams even with a metropolitan area as vast as it is) came back to the NFL, and the petty, small, and petulant tone doesn't surprise me. It's still a cow-town, even with all that oil money. Maybe the writer should just go back to shopping for really big belt buckles and animal husbandry gloves.

Seriously, the guy writes for a travel-site version of bleacherreport. He's just gunning for page views, let him be.

This one is certainly less worse than the last one, I can care less how much he criticized Andrew Luck; he is a rookie after all. However, in the last article one of his main focal points was to rip on Indy fans using generalizations.

I like it better his way. Too much lavish praise creates unrealistic expectations. This way, there is easily some major room for Luck to improve in the writer's (cough, cough) eyes.

Hi everyone I'm new here.

First off I am a die hard Saints fan as you can tell by my handle.

But I am also a Peyton Manning fan and I live here in Houston.

All I can tell you is that whether they are saying it or not, people here (media included) are very worried about this game coming up and about Andrew Luck in general.

The Texans have never had an elite quarterback and they still don't.

They have pretty much been owned by the Colts ever since Peyton was there and now that Luck is there the same will continue.

They already know that Luck is better than Schaub and he's just a rookie! He's only going to get better especially after you get some help on the O line.

I hope Luck destroys the Texans.

Go Colts.

Welcome and thanks for a constructive post!

I don't know that we will own the Texans this year (though hope so) - but certainly expect it next year!

Cheers :)

Houston's own Anna Megan Raley... on the DD show, DD had no game for her. She is the coolest lady in all of sports talk radio... And she taught A Luck "all he know's" ... hehehe

Why are they interviewing her?

She works at 610 doing what I don't know.

And she's basically a Texans groupie.

I laughed just reading the article.

I thought it was funny that the guy is so worried about the Colts coming in and beating the Texans, he was already wanting to call the game.

Double D saw her at the Super Bowl last year and fell in love with her. Sersiously he first had her on because he kept telling his producer to grab her because he wanted to interview her because he thought she was hot.

With that said the few times I've heard her on his show she does know her stuff and does a good job and was able to give people the low down on Luck before we took him. She is 100% in Luck's corner and has been saying since the Super Bowl that Luck was the no brainer choice for the top overall pick and she had covered both him and RG3.

He saw what Luck did to Detroit, didn't he say we were going to get splattered in the previous article? I don't know but he is right out of the mop-bucket I use to clean my scummy bathroom here in my van down by the river. I wish nothing but mouse droppings on his bed sheets for Christmas.

Worried? I don't think so. I don't know what part of the town you live in but no, I don't think many people here are worried at all, for various reasons. 12 is in no way better than Schaub, by any stretch of the imagination. If we win the SB this year, and next year, Schaub still wouldn't get any respect, so I don't care about the whole elite label. Guess what? The Bulls on Parade are only going to get better too. And to think...so many people doubt us and think we are incomplete and not true contenders, when we are 11-2. Imagine what our record would be if we are really contenders? 500-0? I think the "destroying" will be coming from the other side, if we want to talk "destroying". How's your team doing again this year? I see that their elite quarterback is doing things to make the people of New Orleans proud.

4th largest city, actually. We don't want to be discussed, and we definitely don't need the media circus that comes with the Cowboys or Jets or Eagles as we all see how that turned out for those teams this year. Cow town? Yeah, dude. We still ride horses, drink moonshine, use outhouses, and wrestle pigs down here. You should come on down, I'm sure you'll have fun. Oh stereotypes. They never get old.

Get back to me when Schaub wins a playoff game. Then we will talk. And don't come back with "Luck hasn't won one" bc he hasn't had the chance to, being a rookie. Sure we got pasted by the Pats, but at least we kept it a game for a half...and we weren't expected to do anything this season. What is your excuse for the "Bull on Parade" getting Pamplona'd by the Pats? You had the big 11-1 record....

Yeah, it's Schaub's fault he went out with an injury before he could get to the postseason last year. We'll be seeing a win this year, I think. You let them put up 59...yeah that's keeping it a game. 11-2 now, buddy, soon to be 12-2, if I'm looking at my crystal ball right...By the way, still the best record in the AFC. Just putting that out there for ya.

    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      Thought I'd start a thread to gauge your comfort level at each position with the starters and depth. You can do this however you want to, I'll be ranking them and explaining my thought process.    1. ST   Vinatieri, Boomstick, Overton, best combo in the league probably. Our ST has usually ranked pretty well over the years in the Grigson era, which is a welcome change from the manning years when they were a liability.   2. DL   Surprise Surprise! I feel very comfortable with our DL group, starters and depth, assuming everyone gets through healthy. No superstars but Langford, Parry, Jones, Ridgeway, Mcgill, Kerr is a very, very solid rotation. Not to mention we'll get back our defensive MVP (in my eyes) Anderson at some point in the season. It's penetrative, disruptive and our biggest strength on defense. What a difference a year makes from when the pats just ran over chapman.   3. QB   If the past year didn't happen, this is automatically number 1, even with the lack of depth. Obviously I believe Luck will be back with a vengeance, but the proof will have to be in the pudding. I don't know enough about Tolzien to make an informed judgement, obviously his stats leave a lot to be desired. But he has great potential from talking to some packer fans and by all accounts he's a grinder.    4. OL   Could be ranked higher based on potential, but until the whole package manifests on the field, no. 4 is where they belong. Have great hopes with Philbin at the helm, and I think this will be the most tightly contested position group during training camp. Expecting Castanzo Mewhort Kelly Thornton Reitz to start. That's a good group. Depth is great as well, our 2nd team OL would read Clark Harrison Blythe Haeg Good. I'm actually comfortable putting that lineup in front of a QB. Obviously there's development needed with the rookies, but the future looks bright.   5. ILB   Another surprise pick. No superstars, but I like the quality of the depth. Jackson, Irving start with Moore, Morrison backing up. Mcnary has been solid in special teams and decent in spot duty.   6. WR   Like I said with the DL, what a difference a year makes! One of our strongest and deepest position groups last year suddenly has poor depth. Starters are still among the strongest in the league, definitely the fastest, but if any one of Hilton, Moncrief and Dorsett get injured for any significant period, we end up with the untested Bray, Tyms, Boyce, etc. An UDFA or two may make it, but in a young group where Hilton is the vet, I'll have my questions. Would love for another vet addition such as Boldin, who would definitely ease my mind depth wise.   7. TE   Allen and Doyle are solid, but after that? tons of potential but untested. Time for Swoope to step up. Griswold and Miller have flashed, we'll see where they go from here.   8. RB   Frank the tank. Turbin has bounced around numerous times, you would think he'd have found a home by now, and thinking he'll stick around here is highly optimistic. I hope he does, of course, but that's a different story. Varga flashed, but I don't think he's an answer to our RB questions long-term. I personally hope Ferguson makes it, rooting for that kid.    9. S   Pops adams is a beast. Geathers had many bright spots last year, and I hope he continues his development.. Green is a year away at least before taking up reins but his ceiling is super high. Winston guy's role is ST and I don't think it'll ever evolve past that at this point. Depth is lacking and I wish we had colt anderson who was good in spot duty last year.      10. CB   Very uncomfortable with our starters. Davis will do this thing, but I'm not happy with Robinson on the outside at all. I don't think he's an upgrade over Toler, who himself was miserable last year. Butler's getting up there in age and while decent at nickel, is simply atrocious on the outside. Smith seems to have a way to go before competing for starter snaps, and while depth seems good on paper with Tevin Mitchell, Jalil Brown, Williams, etc etc, simply the difficulty of the position mandates some discomfort, especially when said talent is unproven. Our scheme demands a lot from our corners, we aren't the panthers where you can stick a long body in there and have success.   11. OLB    I don't think I need to say much here. Rob Mathis has to have close to a career year, and our UDFAs better step up or I call a few blowouts. If we can't affect QBs, the defense doesn't get very far. Monachino will have to scheme hard.
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Prospects are not rated simply as Day 3 prospects.   Fans might do that....    bad draft analysis might do that.      But scouts and teams sure will.   They'll give him a grade so decision makers like Grigson & Pagano have some idea when a player should be drafted.     You don't want to be taking a R7 guy in the 4th Round and simply say....   "he was a day 3 prospects"   Understanding where players are properly evaluated helps teams get the most out of a draft.  
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Clark did not go a round too high.      Did someone here really say that?  (Yes, it turns out it was Gavin....)    Then they don't know the draft at all.   If Clark did go in the wrong round he should've gone in the 2nd,  and not the 3rd.     But certainly NOT in the 4th.   He has enough raw tools to justify a top-100 pick.     He went 82nd.      He went in just the right spot.

    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      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 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      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.
