    Btw, as a kid, i could usually be found running around my neighborhood in my #7 Colts jersey. I was (until the manning days) always known as "the Colts fan" in my town. Growing up, i knew of no other Colt fans in my area (of Pa). Once Manning arrived,along with team success, you started seeing #18, #88, and even #32 colt jerseys. But , as a child, i LIVED in that #7 Bert Jones jersey. Its the reason i played QB and wore #7.

    That’s actually a fair point. But there are some guys who only get 1 interview and it ends up being the job they get. Pagano to my knowledge never had any HC interviews until the Colts called. I’d take a guy who has been interviewed a couple times over one who never has. My guess would be the reluctance of a team to hire STs coach is why he hasn’t gotten a job yet. Who knows. All I know is options are slim.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/12/06/nfl-will-discuss-allowing-two-personal-fouls-to-be-accepted-on-one-play/ NFL will discuss allowing two personal fouls to be accepted on one play Posted by Michael David Smith on December 6, 2017, 2:10 PM EST Getty Images When Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster delivered an illegal block to Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, and then stood over Burfict and taunted him afterward, Pittsburgh was flagged for two penalties. But by rule, only one of those penalties could be enforced — a rule the league will consider changing for next year. NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent said today that the league has discussed changing the rules so that two personal foul penalties could both be accepted, allowing for a 30-yard penalty for egregious acts. “It has been discussed,” Vincent said. “It’ll be discussed again in February.” The rule that only one penalty can be enforced on a team on a play makes sense, to a point: If four different offensive linemen false start, it wouldn’t make sense to call four five-yard penalties and march the offense back 20 yards. But the rule that allowed Smith-Schuster to get away with both an illegal hit and taunting — which was considered part of the “continuing action” of the play even though it happened after the play was over — creates a bad precedent where players could figure that if they’re going to get flagged for a personal foul anyway they might as well just go ahead and taunt the guy they hit. So although 30 yards of penalties would be a harsh punishment, it would make sense: If a player commits two personal fouls on one play, he deserves a harsh punishment.

    If this thread goes much further it will eventually turn into a bash Pagano thread just like 99% do.

    Ryan Shazier could have paralyzed many players. This time, he led with his head and he got hurt. Had the other player's spine been in line, do you think Shazier would have changed the way he hit? Not a chance. He's a dirty player.

    Not sure what to make of the Tyler Chatwood signing? Cubs signed him to a 3 year 38 Mill contract. Kid is only 27 and throws in the mid 90s. Theo is known for going after young Pitchers that have potential which is why I think Jake is gone. Jake is in his 30s so I don't see us re-signing him. I love Jake but we got the best out of him if we do depart with him. It is what it is. Chatwood actually has pitched Good up until last season where he struggled but Jake struggled before he became a Cub so I trust Theo's process. -In other news G.Stanton announced today that he only wants to play for either the Cubs, Dodgers, Yankees, or Astros if the Marlins do deal him. Man if the Cubs get him, that would stack our lineup! -I was watching some Youtube video's earlier of Dodgers fans reaction to losing the WS. Man those are hilarious, same for the Indians fans losing in 2016 to the Cubs. Hey you can only have 1 Champion and the Cubs got it done in 2016 and Astros got it done last month. Cant wait for 2018!

    That's only cause they just paid him way too much money.

    That was a horrible game....blunders and bad qb play all around. It was like...who can choke the most....it just amazes me when I think there are a few teams capable of beating New England and Belicheck then they go and do stuff like this and I realize how far behind the Patriots the rest of the league truly is.

    Yes he got paid again to be the face of the owners. He is a well paid puppet to take all the heat aimed at the NFL. For those who have an illusion Goodell runs the NFL that is exactly why he was resigned. He makes a public appearance and gets booed and all he does is smile because he knows the ones booing are fooled. He is smiling all the way to the bank and the owners don't have to take any heat.

    Yes, but not for the reasons that most people imply. Peyton was just fine in Denver, so it wasn't the weather that effected his game. Basically what it comes down to is that playing on the road in the NFL is significantly more difficult than playing at home. Adding snow/rain to the equation, along with the crowd noise, only adds to the difficulty. Even Tom Brady has a losing road playoff record.

    This has more to do with our 3-9 record than anything else, IMO. Put these healthy players on the field and we'd be much better, maybe 9-3 or 8-4 and in the playoff picture. Here's hoping all these guys are healthy in 2018.

    The one bright spot this season. They've done if against some good backs too. Bell, Gurley, Fournette, Murray, etc etc. Still get gashed late in games and on outside runs, but better edge play and hopefully a Luck led offense that doesn't screw over the defense with constant 3 and outs can fix that.

    Nice read for sure. But if Nelson is there, I think we gotta go OL over DB.

    Pagano will be gone soon and we can get this ship headed in the right direction.... I can't wait. Firing him will be better than watching the Patriots lose the SB

    OMG are still defending a coach that has only had 2 winning seasons since he has been here? He is a terrible Coach. It is evident in every game.... it is just amplified without Luck. ''This team has no vision. Cannot make adjustments in game or week to week. His hand picked coaching staff sucks. None are worth keeping.... the team gets worse week to week. He is a laughing stock in the media. With every word out of his mouth he sounds dumber. There re is not one single reason he should be the HC of the Colts except he is ensuring a top draft pick and Irsay is a man aof his word He has used his assistants and the GM as the blame for his horrible coaching. Nothing gets better no matter what changes as long as this horrible horrible coach is on the sideline. Except the draft..... i cannot not wait until he is gone and his minions follow.

    Should have been more, but based on recent suspensions I'm not at all surprised by the decision. There's no room for that in this game.

    Quenton Nelson! Why? Colts Offensive Line is a mess since years and as a result you have your franchise QB seriously injured and with Luck the Colts game rise and fall so it is obvious that you have to everything to protect him. It's a no brainer even if it means to invest a top 5 pick in OL. Protect Luck is Priority Nr. 1 Quenton Nelson in my eyes is a blue chip player and the best OL in this years draft probably one of the best coming out the last years. I think you are not gambling by picking him plus he fills a huge need as I mentioned above. I think he is worth the nr. 5 pick even if you think a guy like Saquon Barkley would be the best player to pick. You need a line to block, you need a line to pass protect and the Colts line is still a huge mess and you can't simply afford to get Luck hurt again. So go with Nelson he will improve our Line and that will improve our running game and you can afford to pick a back later in the draft that in combination with an improved line gives you a better production.

    I’d be all in on Nelson. As far as I’ve seen he’s the only elite prospect. I’m not sold on Chubb or Barkley.

    I have 2 options. 1. Quenton Nelson OG 2. Roquan Smith ILB Nobody else interest me. Barkley is great but you need a line first
