Jim Irsay statement on Bill Hudnut

1 post in this topic

Jim Irsay: 
“Mayor Bill Hudnut was kind and generous and never knew a stranger. Bill never failed to stop and speak to anyone who stopped him while he was walking on the street, in the stands watching a Colts game or enjoying a cup of coffee anywhere in town. He sometimes seemed larger than life riding the snowplow during the blizzard of 1979 or strutting down the street as an overgrown leprechaun in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. For all Colts fans, he was instrumental in bringing the Colts to Indianapolis and I will always remember the smile on his face when he walked across the floor of the Hoosier Dome to announce the arrival of the Indianapolis Colts to this great city. We all offer his wife, Beverly, their son, Christoper, and the entire Hudnut family our comfort and support during this difficult time”

    • Watch Out for a Team on the Rise When a window of opportunity closes, darkness soon follows. That’s why the NFL is said to be cyclical. Most teams go through periods of winning and losing. Some teams, like Detroit, tend to have more darkness than others. When looking for a dynasty, it tends to come from a team that just suffered a dark period.   This article is a little bit lengthy, but it is still an interesting read, especially right now during the slow part of the season. I kind of wanted to put this in the Colts section and talk about our chances, but there are also other teams that have potential for it now too (I'm thinking the Cowboys or Raiders). A lot has changed since this article was written. And a lot can still change.    https://www.google.com/amp/s/syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/1647939-which-nfl-franchise-is-developing-into-the-next-dynasty.amp.html
    •   Give him another year.  He's played three or four positions in the last four years.  Landon Collins was bad his first year, some called him a bust.     I agree, he was a stretch at that draft position but hindsight....
    •   It would take 3 SB appearances and at least 2 more wins before we were considered anything remotely respectable to the analysts and media.   which I can't say shouldn't be that way.  This is the era that the colts will have those multiple SB wins. It is time we join the dynasty's in the NFL. Irsay knows this and I'm sure Ballard does too.    Andrew won't be here forever. 
    • Score to note   Louisvill(Ky.) Trinity 31-3 6A #1 Carmel
    • Most long-time Colts fans are used to this time of year.   It's just another trip around the same block with stops at Injury Mart and Panic Outlet before we get to go enjoy ourselves on Excitement Strip.   This time of year isn't exciting, it's interesting and nerve-wracking.  We just have to be patient and hope we have something to be really excited about in a few months.
