I'm not 100% sure on this, but I always assumed we were paying him to play football as a TE. He was definitely out there.
Wait, WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE PAYING HIM!? Well I haven't been chipping in... Maybe his average stats are a protest to not getting his money from us!!
No Dorsett, no Colts win.... this is why I have been screaming for a veteran WR on our roster since TC....argh! I predicted at least 1 of our big 3s would be out long term and we'd be a minor injury away from.....well...THIS.... I wish I could find that post....
Does he really have to be an all pro?? I mean at this rate he's probably a depth player anyways. If he gives us even as much as kerr has given us this year then it will be helpful to our defense, as he will be good enough to help keep our top guys fresh, and the fact that he can play all three positions on the line helps.
Would I like more from him this season? Absolutely.
Do I expect it? Not a chance!!
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
