  1. For what it’s worth.... This week, after we got spanked good, the Colts are now ranked..... 9th. Last week we were ranked .... 8th. Yes, we lost bad and yet we only fell one spot. Just posted this to show you what the outside world thinks of the Colts. They still like us. Ranked behind us are the Rams, who are 10th, the Ravens, who beat us, are 11th, and the Browns, who also beat us, are 12th. It would appear the people who cover the NFL for a living like the Colts more than many in this fan base. Just saying.

  3. I don't think its any secret that the reason we looked bad is because of a relative anomaly, we were without two of our best players. But one will contribute this week and hopefully AC will be back soon. (And those two great players are probably at the 2nd and 3rd most important positions on the team, LT and 3T (for a 43 zone)...for those who don't appreciate the concept of positional value) Its what happens when you lose your talented players and have to play with backups at important positions, you look bad but it doesn't necessarily mean you'll stink every week.

  4. This roster is primed for the next level with a great QB. Which to me speaks of how great Ballard has been. Its funny honestly the fans that crown this team great are the first to crumble when things don't go our way. I grow tired of the wishy washy nature of a lot of our fans. One second we can beat anyone in the league and the next this team is horrible. If that is how you operate in your life, I wouldn't be surprised to see things not going the way you hope they do. Every year people complain about Ballard not addressing a certain position

  5. I figured at this point he wasn't coming back this season. Injuries suck for any player but it's especially frustrating for Campbell. I'm not sure if he will be able to stay healthy but I think he would be terrific if he can. He would add a dynamic element to the offense that is needed.

  8. It amazes me how this forum is after a loss. Colts currently are the 7th Seed in the AFC and some of you act as if they have already been eliminated. I know its hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel but Colts still have a shot. There's absolutely no reason to be this discouraged especially with 5 games to go.

  10. I couldn’t really tell you why he’s still here, so we can go with that. The point is that even if Castonzo is back, LT needs to be drafted high because the backup situation has to be better. Clark can not be on this roster next year.

  11. Great hopefully Autry and Buckner are next.

  12. I think QBs got away from holding bc their position demands so much attention. A backup QB isn’t a bench warmer anymore. A lot of them are involved in game planning and relating what they are seeing on the sidelines to the starters like an assistant coach. The amount of time a qb would miss to practice with the kickers would probably be substantial. Might as well have the punter do it so the kicker, punter and long snapper can work as a group separate while the QBs stay in their group. Just my deduction and don’t know if that is it or not.

  13. I can agree with Buckner. 32 may be second for me, before Leonard . He seems to make everyone in the secondary better like you see with the top tier free safeties. MAN he was sooooo close to making that play on MVS in the 4th.

  15. I’ve gotten to see quite a few but by far, the best one was the AFC championship game, the greatest single playoff game in the history of the league. The 2006(played in Jan 07) vs the evil cheating Patriots. Standing there on the edge of the field, with 5 of my fellow soldiers mere feet from the end zone as Joe Addai as ran it in for the touchdown and then the subsequent Marlon interception was just amazing.

  18. I agree. Last year people complained about ballards lack of getting a WR. This year he didn't address the OL depth enough. Must I also remind fans that every year a strength from last year can become a weakness this year. Rosters are ever evolving. Players are growing or back sliding. Being a GM isn't easy. My hope is to see Ballard remain here for a very long time.

  19. You guys will be fine. You’ll make the playoffs. I have always thought our fan base gets along great with you guys and there is hardly any animosity between our 2 teams. You guys might disagree but we feel like both teams have a friendship more than a rivalry.

  20. Seriously? Man, I have almost the exact opposite opinion. I loved listening to Bill Polian talk about our team. He was refreshingly candid. And his insights were usually fantastic. It’s no wonder that he made it to Canton.

  21. I think too many forget how good the Titans are. They didn't luck themselves into the AFC championship game last year. Not too many wants to give credit to the talent of who we play. It's easier to just lay blame on the Colts players.

  22. And nothing of value was lost. If the man can't stay healthy it doesn't matter how much talent he has. Dude is 1 more season away from washing out of the league completely, if he even gets another chance at this rate. God knows I have no leg to stand on when it comes to defending fancrushes (coughJB7cough) but I get impatient easily with people who back a guy simply assuming he's going to be healthy and on the field when he hasn't proven that that's a thing he does. Would much rather have a lesser talent that can actually play 14+ games a year than a greate

  23. Yes. Lewis was never destined to be a 3T or a pure edge pass rusher. More of an edge setter that gets some scrappy sacks.

  26. Lol well isnt it a good thing the season isn't ending today? If the Colts beat the titans you guys would be saying the opposite. Let's get some guys back, take care of the Texans, and enjoy the ride. The Titans can easily drop a few games before the season ends. Just because they beat a team decimated by injuries or covid doesn't make me think the Titans are the %, and the Colts are not. Im ready for the Texans.

  33. My top 3 are: 1. 2006 2. 2005 3. 2009 That is just the Indianapolis era. The 1995 team was really good as well. That team had a solid defense and Harbaugh played unreal that season, he was so clutch a lot like Luck was in 2012 with those comebacks.

  34. Yeah I think it was 41-17. Edge went off that game and had over 200 Yards and Wayne had a huge day too. Bears fans were talking junk before the game but by the 3rd Qtr it was silent

  37. I followed the NFL, CFB, and CBB closely for 35ish years. All fan bases are pretty much the same. I have a ton of friends both nationally and internationally, and it's the same outside the US too. Acting surprised that fans are not happy after getting destroyed is just silly. Dan should go attend some Euro or South American soccer games lol...

  39. No Doug! No one in the Colts front office has ever thought of this. In fact, no other poster has ever thought of this. You, in all your unique skills are the first person to EVER think of this. I'm sure some intern working in the front office and closely monitoring this website for great insight, is going to flag this, print it, and run it into Ballard's office. I suspect he'll have a V-8 moment and slap his forehead! Genius! Brilliant! Why didn't anyone else think of that?!?

  41. I think we’re in for some Chief like years. The period of Alex Smith prior to Mahomes. Where they were solid, just need a QB to put them over the top. Is Eason that, maybe but odds are nope. We’ll make the playoffs some years, others nope. Just gonna have to give it a couple more years

  43. I don't disagree at all. But saying woulda shoulda happens to every team each year, that's how they land at their record. Its not the same team as a few years ago, but just like a few years ago, we have the ability to beat anybody, but to also lose to (nearly) anybody, and to look great, and to look horrible. Just comparing that to when we had real playoff roster with the PM years where we were consistently 11-5 or better. We generally lost to only the other really good teams. 11-5 at our worst. Now, we'd be 11-5 at our best. Not where want to be ye

  44. Well, @DougDew, since we're comparing RYS and Ronde Barber, let's compare them! Ronde's rookie season 1997 - appeared in only 1 game and got 4 tackles RYS rookie season 2019 - started 13 of 15 games, 1 INT, 5 passes defended, 62 combined tackles, 54 solo tackles Ronde's 2nd season 1998 - started 9 of 16 games, 2 INT's, 0 passes defended, 3 sacks, 70 combined tackles, 59 solo tackles, 2 forced fumbles RYS 2nd season 2020 (so far) - started 6 of 9 games, 1 INT, 5 passes defended, 34 combined tackles, 27 solo tackles, 1 forced fumble Ronde's 3rd seaso

  45. No but I agree with having to play with who you got. That is why they expanded practice rosters, for you to stock up on key positions and have more folks to be the "next man up". If 20 players tested positive or were close contacts like with the Ravens, chances are those close contacts are cleared earlier and you play with them once you have enough bodies.
