I don't see Reitz being a surprise cut. The Colts' front office and coaches see him as an experienced "Swiss army knife". He is an experienced lineman who can more than passably and readily fill in at four positions along the line.
These have been very poor teams that Luck has rescued? I know you don't even believe that.
Luck has made those around him better, and he has been an extraordinary playmaker with the game on the line. Best closer in the game for my money. Very poor teams, however, don't win playoff games.
2015 was a painful regression, and a memory that won't fade until expunged in 2016, but never mistake the way things are right now for the way things really are....
Our offensive roster is well fortified. Our D lacks name brand playmakers, but we have young talent emerging at every level.
If you simply need more time to vent until the 2016 season starts....then that is understandable. We all get * sometimes. Have at it.
This time of year, we fans are slaves to our feelings as there is no evidence to contradict or support our individual notions of expected results for the coming season. So, we wait....
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.
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.
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!
