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.

Oh, the Texas pride, that never gets old either.

Yeah, people tend to be stick up for things they love, especially when people are just blatantly inaccurate and uninformed.

Again, the Colts were picked to finish in what place in the AFC South? Oh yeah, LAST by most accounts. We are playing with house money. Your game against the Pats was over by halftime. We actually led at one point. Done here, arguing with trolls is like ticking on a bonfire.

Well you'd better get away from the mirror then. It actually wasn't over till the clock showed 0:00, but whatever.

*Sigh* Can't we just wait till Sunday to debate about the Teams??? No point of going back & forth over a game that is 2 days away. Let the plays on the field do the talking

Exactly. Bash the writer, not the city. This guy in no way represents our fanbase as a whole.

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.

I'm a lifelong UVa fan, and was a season ticket holder for all of Matt Schaub's career at UVa. I remember when he was splitting carries with Bryson Spinner, and looked below average at best. I even saw him walk across the stage and get his degree (my sister was in the same graduating class as Schaub.) I've seen him develop and become a pretty good pro quarter back. I don't consider Schaub one of the elites, but I do think he is underrated. Schaub isn't flashy, and isn't a media magnet, and I think that is why people don't give him the credit he deserves. That said I do think Luck will have the better pro career, barring injuries and such.

He's just mad because Matt Schaub is completely overrated. (and looks like he just woke up 100% of the time)

Yeah, maybe. We will have to wait and see though. A lot of career time left, and AFC competitiveness, for both these guys. :)

Please let's not go there with looks...there are quite a few pictures I could post if we want to go that way lol. And Schaub doesn't ever get talked about in the media, so I don't know what's exactly overrated about him. It's as though the Texans defensive starters, Arian Foster, and Andre Johnson are the only ones who exist. Schaub is just a shadow to the media.

I love that article! The mere fact those thoughts exist reads like the subconscious mind of the Texans. When the Colts score the go ahead lead with 40 seconds left to play all those thoughts are going to come flooding over the Texans.

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.

This was my exact thought to. The guy is a bum, looking for readers writing garbage like this. It's ok, they shouldn't be worried. The Colts suck.(sarcasm) He is a Houston writer trying to amp up Houston. So be it. I guess this is just how they are out in Texas. I'm sure glad to be a Hoosier! :D

GO COLTS!!!!!

Ya know, the article just seems to show a major chip on his shoulder to me. His team got embarassed in a highly anticipated game between arguably the AFC's best two teams. I haven't seen anybody suggesting the Colts are going to come in and do the same thing to the Texans...but his article suggests that people are expecting the Colts to win this game. The Texans are favored by 9.5. None of the twelve predictors at ESPN.com picked the Colts. And yet this guy is writing sarcastic articles about how SCARRRRRYYYYYY Luck is. Suffice it to say that this article is about the author's fears, and not about LUCK and the Colts at all. BTW, good job at goading the troll into action, guys! Very entertaining!

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.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
