It was a package deal they did. I received around 10 or 12 newspapers i think that spanned the playoffs thru the super bowl. REALLY COOL. Front page artwork, good stories and stats and as silly as it sounds i really enjoyed the ads. Bunny bread, etc (haha)
I also got three or 4 nice posters that were made from front page pics. The One of dungy and peyton is my favorite.
I also have a REALLY cool pic of a VERY young peyton, marvin, and james hanging out sitting against a wall. I think it was from sports illustrated. My fave tho is my autographed johnny U pic signed to me personally. A bird hday present from my oldest brother.
In his tenure as our GM from 2012-2016, Grigson may of been the worst GM in the league as far as the draft goes. Did he know more than us? Of course. 31 other GM's knew more than him though, and that's all that matters. Luck lost 5 years of his career because of Grigson. It goes both ways. I can say you and a lot of others were just as dumb for trusting Grigson as the pessimists were for doubting Ballard. That's why the best viewpoints are those without an extreme bias. I at least judge the drafts based on personal research of the players chosen (which is the best possible viewpoint a fan can do it from to be taken seriously). 100% positive or negative viewpoints from a specific person are the worst. Superman himself will tell it like it is on here when it needs to be done.
However, barring a ridiculous reach or bad positional draft early, Ballard deserves the benefit of the doubt because of his prior work, not merely because he's the Colts GM.
I bought a colts special edition magazine for the colts of 2007. Has every game description, roster, and a few stories in it. I value it. I also dont live in the Indy area. Wish I could get my hands on that news paper you got!
