Didn't even know he spoke. haha

ROTF over that one FX! To say that Marvin Harrison is soft spoken & a man of few works, is a H-U-G-E understatement. Thanks for making SW1 have a good chuckle over that one pal!  :thmup:

 

Marvin is Awesome! I'm not slamming him at all. He's just the smart, hardworking, quiet type & I love that in my beloved INDY NFL icons actually.

If I remember right, he was supposed to announce the Fleener pick but some dude who won a contest got to say it instead and Marvin just stood there.

I think Tarik Glenn announced a pick last year. Marvin was the year before.

I remember an interview I saw with QB Peyton Manning once regarding WR Marvin Harrison once & the subject of physical conditioning came up. Peyton basically said that Marvin is a perfectionist on route running & a workout warrior, but he didn't always eat right. He liked candy bars a little too much, but when you need a touchdown, Marvin got it for ya." 

 

I guess I just like the fact that Harrison splurged & ate junk food now & then. It makes me like him more an an average joe I guess.  ;)

I remember a video at his house where he detailed all the junk food he eats.  It was a lot and it was funny

Apparently Peyton is going to accompany him to the draft as well.

That does sound hilarious Nadine. I wish I had seen it. If anyone can find a link or You Tube video documenting Harrison's junk food obsession, I would love to see it on this topic page. Thank you. 

 

I'd even settle for an INDY Star expose newspaper article on it too. No need to scour the world wide web looking for it though.

James was spectacular to watch. This journey down nostalgic, sentimental RCA Dome lane paying tribute to cherished Colts of years past has been fun.  :colts:  Thanks Dustin for doing this post BTW.

I'll ask around.  He has a serious junk food addiction. Don't know how he was so fit!

I remember seeing that video and wondering if he was joking.  I couldn't believe all the junk he was eating.  I think when I was his age I probably ate just as bad, but I wasn't trying to play a professional sport.  Amazing he could eat like that and still perform all those years.  Great genes, I guess.

 

I'm also surprised there's no "Will he bring a bucket on stage with him" joke in this thread?

I share his sentiment for tasty cakes. If you are not in Eastern Pa they are impossible to find! And they are addicting. In recent years however it has become a larger company, and distributed in more areas of the US.

Yup, and marvin actually had a clause in his contract that basically said the colt's couldn't tell him what to eat. TRUE STORY.

Edge wasn't better then Harrison..

Harrison is a hall of famer and was productive 95% of his career.

Edge 2 1/2 good seasons.. Then he busted his knee and was never the same.

Uhhhh....that is highly, HIGHLY inaccurate.

 

Comparing a WR and RB is apples and oranges....but James ranks among All-Time NFL leaders at RB and was an outstanding blocker.

Nadine you're awesome! Thank you so much for finding that Harrison junk food home video. I'm still laughing over it. If a mouse gets into Marvin's house, it will think it died & went to critter eating heaven. LOL!

 

BK, I had no idea you could get a non disclosure junk food clause into a player's NFL contract. Fascinating stuff there. Twinkies, my main junk food vice, will probably spell my demise actually, but I digress. Ha! Ha! 

 

Smonroe, what do you have against KFC buddy? Just kidding pal. Darn it, now SW1 is hungry for chicken. You're a funny man Smonroe. Never lose that priceless sense of humor okay.  :P  :yahoo:

Not saying Edge wasn't a good football player. He dominated the NFL until he blew out his knee. After that, he was never the same guy. Marvin was the best receiver in the league for a long time, the best to ever wear a colts uniform, ever.

And Harrison had eight seasons of more than 10+ TD's

Eight seasons of more then 1,000 yards.

1,102 receptions.

Averaged over 13 yards per catch.

He wore a Colts uniform for 13 years! Edge only half of that.

That's cool. You saying Edge had 2 good years is still hilariously wrong.

Post knee injury Edge could turn a 2 yard loss into a 4 yard gain. He could also turn a 20 yard gain into a 4 yard gain.

I disagree with that statement whole heartily.  One of the things that made James a great RB was that he did not leave yards on the field, even after his knee surgery.  My word people act like he faded into obscurity after he injured his knee.  IN 4 years with the Colts after his knee injury he had 1,281 carries for 5,302 yards (4.2 ypc average), 35 tds and also caught 207 passes for 1,466 yards and 2 more TDs. 3 seasons over 1200 yards rushing and 2 seasons over 1500 yards.  He had way more than 2-1/2 good seasons.

Say what you want about #88

But he was still never convicted

 

He went out without a bang (pun intended :)).

 

Harrison wasn't the same guy in 2008 after his knee injury in 2007. That is what worries me about Wayne in 2014.

    • Jim Irsay ‘Couldn’t Be More Thrilled’ With Andrew Luck’s New Contract
      Intro: Colts owner Jim Irsay said quarterback Andrew Luck’s new six-year deal, signed Wednesday, was a “smooth process,” and helps set up the rest of the team moving forward. View the full article
    • Jim Irsay buys Prince's "Yellow Cloud" guitar for $137,500
      Also want to point out that guitar players, especially amateurs like me, are known for having "gas".  That's Gear Acquisition Syndrome.  Because we just know that the next one we get is going to make us better.     I'm in recovery so I dare not go into a Guitar Center.  I imagine Mr Irsay suffers from the same disease, except on a much grander scale.

      Confirmed 15, but they are supposed to be a long 15, like 10-15 minutes longer. 
    • Andrew luck signs
      There's room for them to do that, if they wish. But in looking at the structure and the payouts, there's no real reason to do so. They appear to have been very conscious of balancing out his cap hits and keeping cash aligned with cap, to the extent possible.   Take what we know about this front office and how they manage the cap, and I don't see them trying to pry extra cap space to make roster moves in the future. They're very disciplined in their cap management, they take their hits and keep moving, knowing that they'll come out even eventually.   Irsay did specifically mention having the flexibility to adjust Luck's contract in the future. so I won't dismiss the idea altogether. The Colts restructured Manning's contracts multiple times to create cap space, but that was a different cap environment. Again, I won't dismiss it, I just don't see why it would be necessary.   Maybe they'll feel like they have to take a one year hit to keep some core guys on the team. That could happen in a couple years if the 2015-16 draft classes really hit. But the fact that they're ahead of the game (mostly due to bad drafting and other circumstances in 2013 and 2014) kind of takes that pressure away.
    • Andrew luck signs
      You made some valid points , but some didn't. I agreed with you on the structure, but remember I predicted they would restructure, because they really had no choice unless they were insane. The Colts definitely structured it better with Luck, but I'm thinking Ozzie maybe structured it  the way he did in case Flacco totally flopped after the SB. All that being said, the Colts and Ravens have capable and proven QB's going into the future, and you have to have that in the NFL. The other thing I like about Flacco and Luck are that they are both tough, and despite their offensive lines causing both injuries last year, have generally been healthy over most of their careers.
