Lucas Oil is turning into a fortress

21 posts in this topic

We are blown assignment from being 10-0 there in our last 10 games.  Make no mistake if you can win your home games and split on the road like the Colts did you are going to have a great season.

The House that Manning built is a nice stadium.

Indeed it has, now the deputy is doing a fabulous job at continuing the tradition.

Lucas Oil was insane today. The energy and atmosphere were amazing. On third down the crowd was off the charts.

Great 12th man today, happy I was apart of it lol.

Lol "QUIT" playing. It sure helps losing an elite quarterback too.

Really should have been 8-0 at home this year, if it wasn't for that flukey long pass by of all people,blaine gabbert. That play may have cost us the division!

That's what they call it.  I still can't believe they didn't turn it into some form of museum.  Too much greatness played in that old building to tear it down and turn it into a parking lot. 

 

I went to a 4th of July game in 1998 vs. the Orioles which was the stadium's 75th anniversary.  They played Lou Gehrig's speech in its entirety. Knowing I was standing where someone else was in 1939 hearing those words, was a bit of an eerie feeling.

To me they could have done a lot with it, to preserve that type of history. You can't make things like that again. Huge difference in Yankee Stadium and the RCA Dome.

 

Cooperstown is a great trip. It's a little hamlet of a town and has all the history and stuff, but getting there is a chore. The building is kinda small.. Maybe they could have moved the concept of the hall of fame. Tons of people would have complained and I see that point of view and share that point of view to a point, but to me you don't throw away history like that.

 

In Atlanta, when they tore down Fulton County Stadium, they actually built a parking lot on it but at least they outlined the  the bases, infield/outfield/etc. , and have the spot where Aaron's 715th landed and tried to do some things like that.

The young guys on offense feeling at home, the O-line being able to hear the calls right, and saving the 12th man vocal cords to help the defense all make for a good combo :)

    • Let's talk UDFA: Tevaun Smith
      Smith is one of my favorite UDFA's. My buddy is a Hawks fan so I have seen him play a lot.  He has speed, breaks tackles, is a willing blocker, and the most important thing catches anything close to him. His route tree is limited mainly because Iowa plays such a conservative offense.    I was surprised he went undrafted after his pro day. He is a hard worker and I think he at least makes the PS. I just mentioned him in another thread. The kid has a future on Sunday. He's the WR I'll be watching.    I think Tyms has an advantage over all the WR's because he's proven he can be a good gunner in the league during his time in NE. Bray obviously has an advantage because of return duties

    • Haeg got first team rels at RG over Clark?
      I don't think Reitz or Good are going anywhere. In fact one will start at RT. I would be surprised if Harrison isn't around 1 more year at least to be our back up C. I'm not sure only having 2 rookies at the C position is the way we go.    I guess we keep 10 or stash Blythe on the PS keep 9.  Castonzo Mewhort Kelly Thorton Reitz/Good start Harrison and Haeg are the primary back ups. Clark gets a red shirt year for the most part.    I think Blythe can be a fine pro but he needs to get stronger. If he was a 3 position back up out of the shoot you think we get him in the 7th?  We cut the dead weight in Holmes. 
    • Extremly early prediction...
      In my mind he'd be the 4th back. Turbin is here to be the back up. I think it's his job lose maybe Vsrga takes it but he'd need a really good preseason.    I'm hoping we keep Ferguson or Williams as a scat back. I can't remember a guy like that on our O. Ferguson looks to have really good hands. We could do different things with him. He's another guy that many had being drafted.    That would leave Varga fighting it out for 4th spot or as you mentioned we could stash him on the PS and keep 3. That would leave the door open for an extra WR.   A guy like Tevaun Smith. My buddy is a Hawkeye fan so I fell asleep watching them ast year.  When he did wake me up it was often with the name Tevaun Smith. I was surprised he wasn't drafted after he blew up his pro day. I really like that kid

      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!
