Training camp time once again, anticipation, dedication, and, the dream of a great season! The fans have been lined up in Denver since 5 am, just to catch a glimpse of " You know Who". The Jets are puttin on extra security for the " Mob expected to land". The Pac is back, with a multitude of diehards, expected to exceed over 100,000 for the practice activities. And then there's the COLTS fans. They say we're loyal, but, bitter.... I look forward to the massive march that will envelope Anderson
In the past, are some great, and, not so great events. The first 2 years on the field we love to remember, average of 11 yards per carry. The part to forget is: 2 severe concussions. Number 17 , we sure are looking forward to some great things from you this year!! With Luck as your passer, the yards will soon be piling up. Now piling up, there's a word for you. As a WR in the NFL who gets 1.308 mil..... Austin, you deserve a payday, and not the one in the wrapper.....
R.G III 's people ironed out his contract @ 4 yr 21.1 million. The shadow of more than 6 wins, now will follow him all season. Being a focused QB, probably not going to trip him up. Andrew, no worries. Even though this is his management firms first football contract, looks like a deal is wrapping up. 49 Days til Kick off....
No longer COLTS related... but, Peyton's the proud new owner of a 4.5 mil 7 bathroom sprawling home ( with elevator) right outside Denver. One local fans comment comes to mind " Why does he need 7 bathrooms, he only has 1---- ". Good Luck to you # 18. We wish you the best.
I love the boys on the NFL network, don't always agree with them. Their projection... Luck will throw 22 or more INT'S this year, ( seeing how he has no talent around him). Well , boys you are entitled to your opinion, I am also entitled to mine. Luck threw 10 INT'S in 2011. Yeah, yeah, it's his first year in the Big Leagues... talent around him, give the COLTS some credit . Last time I checked we had a pretty great line up of WR;s and RB'S. I look forward to serving up a nice plate of " EA
Some of you may love em, other's not so much. They took the field you cheered. They set up the plays that won the game: BROADWAY Joe "Namath" , commercials, and kisses from the honey's Terry the " BLOND BOMBER" Bradshaw, some thought " not so smart" warrior, you bet. Aaron " BELTULA" Rodgers: the back up that really made a LEAP at LAMBEAU . Special COLTS fan favorite: TOM TERRIFIC BRADY, aka , CALIFORNIA COOL 5th round draft pick, guess he rose to the occasion. Enter # 5 on the list of NUMB
How soon they forget.... last 5 year trend : wins: 13,12, 14, 10, 2. Post season appearances: 4. Now all we hear is 2 - 14, scoring rank: 15.2 avg for 28th in the league, Total yards: 286.8 Rank 30th, Rushing : 99.6 Avg: 26th in League, Passing avg: 187.2 : 27th in league, 3rd down % 34.6 Rank 23rd. Defense, we won't go there. Everything we do is gauged on our last performance, in sports, and, in life. Latest reports say: Luck takes over a " Cobbled together team" with only one friendly face.
Flashback 1998 1st round draft pick Manning , 26 touchdowns, 28 interceptions. The average of a first round draft pick QB is 6 wins his first year. Manning's first year was 3 and 13. Seems like everyone has a stat, a prediction, and, an opinion. Indy fans are very defensive when it comes to numbers. Guess that includes me as well. Latest on line polling: 52% say Luck to be rookie of the year. It has also been said, " Don't break the rules". But, no one ever said " DON'T BREAK THE RECORDS"
After a less than stellar year, looks like Chad Johnson is looking for a new gig. Released from the arch rival Patriots, wonder if Ochocinco would be a good fit for the Horse shoe???... Who will be lining up to put up with this WR, the MLB, or, the NFL.. ...
Negative talk regarding the corner backs in Indy continues to flow from the mouths , and , the pens of the critics. Jerraud Powers is frankly sick of hearing it, he has two questions : Are you in the building? Are you working out with us? Can you see into our future? Something to prove, you bet. That CHIP we'll be wearing on our shoulder , you may not see it, but it's there... and we won't forget it.
Congratulations my be in order for the starting Running Back position. Vick Ballard, and, Delone Carter are still in the ( running). However, Donald Brown may have already crossed the finish line. #31 a shining star in cloudy sky's last year will continue to provide us COLTS fans with some fancy footwork. Thank you Donald Brown, we sure appreciate your horse- power!! GO COLTS!!
DESPERATE, THAT'S THE FIRST WORD THAT COMES TO MIND IN THE OFFICE'S OF THE INDIANAPOLIS COLT'S. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 9 YEARS SEASON TICKET RENEWALS ARE BELOW 87%. A HOTSHOT OUTSIDE TICKET SALES AGENCY HAS BEEN HIRED TO TRY TO " GET THE FANS BACK IN COLT'S CAMP". FOR A TEAM THAT HAS HAD A WINNING RECORD FOR THE LAST 9 YEARS, HAS A NEW QUARTERBACK THAT RANKS IN THE TOP 5 JERSEY SALES IN THE ENTIRE NFL IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS, I AM VERY SURPRISED, AND DISSAPOINTED. INDIANA, NOT, JUST INDIANAPOLIS,
GETTIN READY TO GET OUTTA DODGE, IN THIS CASE DALLAS. THIS FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK OF 2008 IS FEELING A MIGHT UNDER-APPRECIATED. SPEED, FOOTWORK, QUICKNESS, AND , INSTINCT, WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED? SEEMS LIKE THERE'S MORE THAN JUST A NEW EPISODE OF " DALLAS" CAN YOU SAY BOYCOTT... COULD THAT LATE JANUARY SHOULDER SURGERY BE KEEPIN THIS COWBOY IN THE BARN?? CORNER BACK MIKE JENKINS MAY JUST BE SADDLIN UP TO RUN WITH THEM COLT'S...... STANDOFF TIL TRAINING CAMP.. THIS MAY TURN INTO " JENKINS LAST
I FOR ONE AM TIRED OF BEING ASKED " HOW DO YOU THINK PEYTON WILL DO IN DENVER, WHAT ABOUT GARCON, AND, MY FAVORITE, " DO YOU THINK THE COLT'S WILL HAVE A BETTER SEASON THIS YEAR??". GEE, WELL LET'S SEE: I SURE WILL MISS PEYTON, COULD'NT TALK TO ANYONE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS WHEN THE DEED WAS DONE, NOW, LET'S MOVE ON. I AM A COLT'S FAN FIRST, I DO FOLLOW SEVERAL PLAYERS ON DIFFERENT TEAMS BEACAUSE I LOVE THE NFL, HOWEVER, COLTS 1ST, ANYTHING ELSE IS A FAR SECOND. NOW, LET'S GET TO THE #85 SCENA
DUE TO THE MANY INTERSTATES THAT CRISS CROSS INDY, DUBBED Crossroads of America 13TH LARGEST CITY IN AMERICA LARGEST PRODUCER OF POPCORN COLTS : 2ND DOME TEAM TO WIN A SUPERBOWL COLTS HAVE WON 6 OF THE LAST 8 AFC TITLE'S HOME TO THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME INDY: WE SALUTE YOU!!!
IN A RECENT INTERVIEW ON COLTS CAM WITH THE NFL NETWORK DWIGHT FREENEY STATED " IT WILL BE HARD TO SEE PEYTON IN THE BLUE AND ORANGE", I PREFER NOT TO, HOWEVER, I DO WISH HIM THE BEST. DWIGHT ALSO WENT ON TO SAY" HE IS TAKING HIS NEW POSITION ALL IN STRIDE, HE ONLY HOPES HE REMEMBERS TO RUN THE RIGHT DIRECTION...
THE FORMER ALL TIME LEADER WITH 82 TOUCHDOWN PASSES, .687 % COMPLETION, AND, TOTAL OFFENSIVE YARDS OF 10,387, LUCK NOW HAS A NEW JOB TITLE. AT STANFORD, THE TEAMS NEW OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR POSITION HAS BEEN RENAMED : ANDREW LUCK DIRECTOR OF OFFENSE. ARE YOU DEFINED BY YOUR NAME? WE SHALL SEE.
PRIOR TO COMING TO THE COLTS IN 2006, OUR BELOVED KICKER GOT HIS START WITH " THE AMSTERDAM ADMIRALS" OF NFL EUROPE. HE HAS A RECORD BREAKING 5 SUPERBOWL'S, WITH 4 WINS! LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE RECORD BREAKING ACTION FROM ADAM THIS 2012 SEASON. ADAM, WE SALUTE YOU!!!
DRUM ROLL AND CONGRATULATIONS GO OUT TO THE RECORD BREAKING SEASON PERFORMANCE OF THE SILVER AND BLACK IN 2011. BETWEEN THE HOLDING DURING THE 2ND HALF KICK OFF, AND, THE PERSONAL FOULS, AS WELL AS MANY OTHER TASTY PENALTIES THE OAKLAND RAIDERS BECAME THE MOST PENALIZED TEAM TO DATE IN THE NFL @ 163. HISTORY SAYS RECORDS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN. I AM SURE THE COLTS, NEVER WANT TO TOPPLE THIS ONE.
MANNING RETURNED TO CIRCLE CITY TO HOST THE "CELEBRATION OF CARING " GALA FOR THE PEYTON MANNING CHILDRENS HOSPITAL @ ST VINCENT. WHEN ASKED ABOUT LUCK, HE HAD NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS TO SAY " I AM HAPPY FOR HIM, HE'S A GOOD KID, REMINDS ME OF THE EXCITEMENT I HAD AS A ROOKIE COMING INTO THE LEAGUE" , " I WISH HIM NOTHING BUT THE BEST". EVEN THOUGH THE COLT'S SHIP HAS SAILED ON WITHOUT PEYTON, HE IS GLAD JUST TO HAVE A TICKET TO RIDE....
LOOKS LIKE THE USE OF THE PRIVATE JET BY MR IRSAY TO HELP # 12 GET BACK AND FORTH TO SCHOOL IN THIS TRANSITION PERIOD HAS BEEN GOUNDED BY THE NFL. NO WORRIES, LOOKS LIKE THE ONLY THING THAT WILL BE FLYING FOR LUCK, WILL BE THE PIGSKIN. BETTER LUCK , LATER ON IN THE SEASON! GO COLTS!!
THE EYE OF THE STORM HAS PASSED AND IN THE WAKE HERE WE GO.... SUSPENSIONS FUJUITA, SMITH 4 GAMES, HARGROVE 8 GAMES, VILMA 1 YEAR. IS THIS THE END, OR, THE BEGINNING?? WHEN THE FLOOD DRAINS WHAT ELSE WILL WE FIND... AND SO IT GOES.
