Fun Fact Of the Day

18 posts in this topic

We are 10-5. If we loose next week that puts us at 10-6, our very same record as Manning's last season. With what we have surrounding Luck we got the same Ws as we did with Manning in 2010. There can be no description of just how impossible that was stated to be in the beginning of the season.

 

Even more if we win next week(Doubtful with Texans playing for something and us playing for nothing) we will be 11-5 with MORE WINS than we had in 2010. Simply beautiful. So proud of this team.

I'm proud of this team too. But Peyton willed us to that record with even less around him than Andrew has. Remember all the injuries?

I remember all the injuries but we still had a better all around team then than now.

Not at the end of the season, IMHO.

I disagree. We had many of the same holes we have now, plus some (no corners that season, Aaron Francisco at safety). We had a far inferior coaching staff. I think, sans the quarterbacks, the 2012 team is better than the 2010 team was.

 

The point still stands, though. It's remarkable that we've won 10 games.

I love what we've done, so happy, but our schedule has been very very weak this season. The years are totally different.

Agreed on the similar holes but a few of our wins this season have come from a simple roll going our way vs it going towards the opponent. Plus the argument that the 2010schedule was harder than the 2012 plays a factor as well. Regardless it's a good time to be an Indy fan.

According to PFW , the 2012 Colts are the team most effected by injuries. Start with the D Line. 4 players counted to contribute there. Go to the O Line , been horrible there. Lost 2 Rb's for extended time. Starting CB's .. Davis and Powers. Lost a safety. Angerer and Conner at LB. I guess been healthy at QB , both kickers and WR. Rest of the roster ripped apart by injuries.

There's injuries, then there are quality injuries. The 10 team lost a lot of great players. We have Powers and 2 D starters who are interchangeable lost on D. Collie is the only quality guy I can think of on O.

I'm still proud of this team thogh.

This is true , but then again that 2010 had way more talent... right ? We lost Freeney for a few games , we lost Mathis for a few games , we lost Davis for a few games ... other than Luck and Wayne , what good player did we not lose for a period of time. Point is some are saying the 2012 team had more talent than the 2010 team. My point iis both were beset with injuries

2012 Colts Poem


 


In 2011, we had a terrible year,


But you didn't see us shed a tear.


Our Players didn't pass the buck,


We went and drafted Andrew Luck.


 


And then we hear through the media,


Coach Pagano has leukemia.


We left the lights on, all the long,


To show we were still ColtsStrong.


 


As the year ends, where are we?


In the playoffs, unexpectedly.


Now we light our homes with Blue,


To show we're Colts Fans, through and through.

Plus Blaire White started 4 games in 2010.  We also now have an infinitely better coaching staff, imo, than what we had back then.

    • I've heard of Mike Francesca.. I've never heard his show.  Not one time.  Hes not on here in the Chicago area.
      I'm not knocking him..he must be good. I've just never heard him Howard Stern isn't on in Chicago. Most of the names you mention, I've never heard their shows. Russo used to be on with Don Imus when Imus was on TV...and that's where I know him from. Seems like a decent kid but he's strange   We didn't get Sporting News radio in Chicago except overnights. The NBC radio network was never on up here.  Daytime sports programming was and is pretty local in Chicago.... Mike North, Dan Jiggetts....Carmen and Jurko....Waddle and Silvy   With Sirius Radio..I know every body is on Nationally now... Ive heard a little of that (just got a newer car) and it sounds good..a channel for every sport. Interesting But its not free... so my interest is chilled by lack of cash    
    •   You have never heard of Mike Francesa? He has been on the radio since 1989 or so. His show comes on in most parts of the country on weekday afternoons. If you heard of "Mike and the Mad Dog", he is Mike.  He has had a national football show on the radio on Sundays during the NFL season for at least 20 years.   You mentioned Chet Coppack. There used to be a 24-hour sports radio station called Sporting News Radio. Do you know it? It may still be around but we no longer get it where I am. I believe it was based out of the Chicago area or somewhere in the Midwest. Chet Coppack used to have a show on Saturdays or Sundays. Other sports radio personalities that I remember were Jay Mariotti, Scott Wetzel, Nestor Aparicio, Tony Bruno, Papa Joe Chevalier (deceased), Bruce Murray, Rick Ballou, and others. I used to enjoy them because they talked national sports, not just local sports. 
    • Dont get me wrong, Dan Gilbert is a terrible owner. But, this is 99% LeBron's fault. Even If the cavs still had Griffin, there is nothing that Griffin can do to improve the team. They have no cap space to get big time free agents and they have no assets to trade, outside the big three. LeBron stood his ground and made sure his guys got paid. Tristan, JR, Shumpert, and Frye. Those contracts look as bad with the cap increase as they did before them. LeBron forced the team to trade any assets they had for the likes of Mozgov. Lebron got the good coach fired and had him replaced him with his buddy. Lebron gutted the team from the inside out and he's now doing his best to shift the blame of him.    Kyrie requested to be traded back when Butler was still with the bulls. Why leak the information weeks later? And the guy who leaked it, Windhorst, is well known to be LeBron's guy. Just more shifting of the blame
    • That's true..but a new GM can do the same. Look I understand why folks don't like Dan Gilbert. He never speaks. Never defends himself..and he bad mouthed LeBron on his way out of town.   But when you lay down the bucks the way he does, I think he can be demanding. I dont know what trades they can make in their financial situation... Irving wanting to be traded may be a blessing because it allows them to get finances back somewhere near seas level.   I dont know if you can count on the same guy who overpaid everybody to turn around and find value guys
    • Again, I don't like every move Griffin made, but he had some success and got them to win the title.  If nothing else, keeping Griffin means continuity, so you can perhaps get rid of some overpriced players and find guys who bring more value to your team.
