It's been a while since I updated my blog.. You see my dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was told he would live for a maximum of 2 weeks.. That was several months ago.. Sadly my family lost him, December 18th. He fought as hard as he could.. In fact it reminded me of when Chuck got cancer.. I shaved my head for the guy.. You see my family bleeds blue... Dad, was such an awesome man and a die-hard Colts fan.. I feel blessed to have gotten to celebrate multiple Superbowl appearan
I will always remember Reggie Wayne. He was one of the most explosive threats I have ever seen in my young 30 year life.. Though there have always been doubters, seeing his career in INDY coming to a close seems fateful. These guys are immortal in the eyes of their fans but we need to realize just how precious the players are. 3 1/2 years is the average for players in the NFL, Reggie wasn't settling for that. With all of the trouble floating around in the NFL, Reggie Wayne excelled on and off th
Wow, what a great game!! This is what i would have loved to have said.. Sadly I was unable to watch the game, though I did give my best effort to follow the game on my tablet. I tell you what, it looked like Andrew Luck wanted to avenge the previous games disaster.. I was happy to see Wayne make the highlight reel. They say the average NFL player only last 3 1/2 years. To see Wayne still flying, makes me want to cry like he did, during our national anthem. Hey question, who is digging th
To say that I am proud just wouldn't be enough.. Last night I watched Peyton Manning set the record for TD's I believe he now has 510. He looks to have another couple good years too, which would be sad to say if Manning had been replaced by anyone other than Andrew Luck. Right now as Colts fans we have the best of both worlds! We get to watch our young QB grow up and we get to watch Manning not simply retire, but go out swinging. The NFL is as exciting as ever! WOOHOO I love football seas
I don't know about you but I am pretty excited about our team! The Colts look like the AFC South's best again.. You can never replace a legend but Luck has really shown that he is a very capable player. Speaking of legends, Reggie Wayne looks to be passing the torch to Ty Hilton. The best thing though is that Wayne is playing great, Hilton is playing great, etc. I think Wayne will play another year or two and they will be good years. We are facing the Bengals this weekend, and I am pretty p
The Colts are in Texas today to challenge the mighty Texans. Currently the two teams are tied for 1st place in the division. Fitzpatrick will be starting at QB for the Texans. This could be good for the Colts as he generally takes chances with the football, which sometimes leads to costly mistakes. Foster is one of the best rushers in the league so look for the Texans to run it at the Colts most of the game. I am hoping for another big day for the Colts defense. Go Colts, Good LUCK Chuck!
The Colts are 8-4 with a chance of sealing the division next week. The Bengals are also playing hard-nosed football. It will be a tough game to win on the road, but I feel it is a must win for the team. We still have a good shot at a 1st round bye and we could really use it to rest up. The road goes through New England as of now but I could see the Patriots losing another game or two. The 3rd seed sounds great too as I do not wish to face the Broncos right away come playoff time. Keep thos
Well, the Colts would have a first round bye if the season ended today. I couldn't be more proud of the guys. We have developed a bad habit of letting teams take swift jabs at us in the first few quarters. So, for now, I am glad to see that we have Rocky as our QB. Remember fans, it's not always about winning the game, it's about going the distance. These times are the good times~! I am just happy and excited to be able to watch the talent that Indy has and is developing. By the way, I hav
I don't know, look at it this way.. Peyton basically sucked away the salary cap, making it very hard to pay key players to stay. I will always love number 18, but we needed money for defense and for special teams. A well rounded team has a better chance of winning Superbowls. The Patriots prove that year after year. Irsay is a competitor, as much as Kraft, Jones, or heck anyone else. I truly believe that Irsay's comments about needing a better team to win more rings and such, has been blown o
Week 2 for the Indianapolis Colts is officially over. Statistically the guys had a pretty good game. There were 3 or 4 miscues between Hilton and Luck but these are the type of things you will see between newer receivers and newer QB's. They, including all players, will all develop and grow together as a team in time. I believe that the Colts will achieve excellence. 1-1 for now but tomorrow brings another opportunity to win. It's all about the fans in the NFL, if we stick with our team we
Wow, did anyone else watch the game last night against the Broncos and the Ravens? The game was delayed for half an hour because of a lightning storm. There was a presence in Denver. PEYTON MANNING. Gone but never forgotten baby! He tied the NFL record with 7 TD passes. The game looked pretty close at half time; it looked like both teams had showed up to play. The second half looked more like a preseason game. I felt like The Broncos had their starters in and the Ravens were playing thei
Football season is a year round tradition for me.. I am always looking forward to NFL news, and player updates! But the season is upon us, and I am excited more than ever for football to kick off! I feel like the Colts are hungry again. Luck will be looking to prove himself once more and our young talent(s) should put on a great show. I miss the guarantees we had in Peyton Manning of being pretty much playoff bound. But more then that I miss the way we had to earn every win. Luck and our
The great escape, that is what I like to refer to the NFL as.. I am a die hard Colts fan through and through, I practically bleed blue.. I also have a debilitating illness. 75 percent of my day is spent in pain or some form of agony.. I recently filed for disability and was told that I act entirely to pleasant to be in the sort of pain I describe.. So much so in fact I was denied disability at my first hearing.. I have always turned my heart to God and football. These things keep me sane.
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000163276/article/ranking-the-five-nfl-teams-that-are-best-at-drafting Upon reading this article, I can't believe the Colts weren't on this list! I know times have changed, but it seemed like year after year the Colts would draft some type of bad *** ! With last year being Andrew Luck? Come on people.. Am I being a little biased here??
Well folks, it's been officially over for the Colts for a week now and they have moved into off-season mode. I wish the Colts organization the best of luck this coming year and next football season. I want to add something else.. The Colts were Champions this year to Indianapolis and it's fans. And above all others, for Chuck. The team were champions in Chucks eyes! Re-building. CHUCK YOU ARE OUR CHAMPION!!
Well guys the Colts locked up the number 5 seed!! I am so proud, the players have put up a huge effort and are well deserving of all good things that come their way. Good luck in the post season, and lets kick some Texan butt next week!! Everyone have a Merry Christmas, and happy holidays! 10-5 :^D
We definitely took a step back, I hope we can learn from this loss and grow stronger as a team! I will say, we didn't help by giving them free points!! Hats off to the Texan that both blocked and returned the punt for the TD!! For my take on the Texans click on the image to the left! (Poor Sport here )
Heart! That is what it is going to take to win Sunday. The Colts are headed to Houston for what is surprisingly going to be huge game. The Colts are 9-4 the Texans 11-2. The Colts control their own destiny; with a win at Houston the Colts have a highly favorable shot at winning the division! As the Colts have shown they are a great home team, with a win on the road I think they can all but guarantee a win again in Indy in two weeks. To beat the Texans the Colts are gonna have to play COLTS
Well, tonight the Broncos improved to 10-3! I am so happy for Peyton, and I wish his team the best of luck.. But who would have expected to see both Peyton Manning recovered and playing strong, PLUS Andrew Luck and the Colts with a 8-4 record!! Luck already has show he can come back and win.. What other QB's throw 3 INT and still wins the game with 4 TD's?? I am darn proud of our team!! I am also so happy for Garcon who had a great game this past weekend!! Good times!! Happy Holidays all!
One day while having lunch in the cafeteria in middle school. I heard my name go out over the announcement speaker, they told me to come down to the office; that my mother was waiting for me. I was overjoyed for a moment, hoping I'd be getting out of school. At the time my Grandma had cancer and my mom would let me play hookie on occasion so I could help my grandma around her house with misc chores and such. I had no problem keeping up in school so it didn't interfere with my school work.
Anyone ever watch The Ghost and the Darkness? It's a movie about a couple of crazy Lions that wreck havoc among a group of African bridge builders. All in all they take the lives of 130+ people.. It took the bridge builder and a rifle to end it all. The Colts are also in a similar place as they are building right now, and they are under threat from a couple of Lions.. We just gotta hold the rifle steady.. In other words, the Team has to stand strong or they are gonna fall victim as well. T
To say sitting at 7-4 that the Colts haven't stepped it up would be a down right lie! With practically a rookie class on offense these guys are flying pretty darn good. I expect great things from this bunch in the coming years.. Anyone foolish enough to say that Wayne should have exited with the other half of the team during the off season should be blitzed! Wayne is putting up huge numbers and should def go to the Pro-bowl; talk about talent!! Luck has been pretty good too, one more win an
Alright guys, we are sitting pretty at 6-3 right now, 5th seeded playoff team.. Where do we go from here? We have an intense match-up Sunday against our rival New England Patriots, so what can we do to survive? Our D has got to be on it. They will be missing the 12th man for this game, so we all need to do what we can from home. SO I PROPOSE we all go outside when our defense is on the field and scream our support!!! Maybe if we all scream loud enough we will crumble the walls of Gillette
I am loving it, been saying for a while that RG3 is getting a lot of hype.. He really reminds me of a young Vick.. He is exciting and explosive at the run but, he has been overshadowing my boy Andy Luck.. Yep that's right, good ole' Andy.. He is one nice guy.. I have watched all his post-game interviews and the guy is a really humble dude. He has extreme football awareness and like Coach Arians said, he can't throw guys off like Big Ben but he is a big guy and is very hard to tackle. Just
