  1. My grade for Nelson against the Seahawks: https://forums.colts.com/topic/58774-schwartz-on-nelson-mostly-real-good/?do=findComment&comment=1744466 Figured I'd do the same for the Ravens game. Much more consistent performance for Nelson in this game, especially pass blocking. I want to see him again against a more penetrating defensive interior, but he was right at home in this one, against a group of bigger, more 2-gapping group of DL. Nelson played 7 series, 35 plays (too many short drives due to sloppy offense), 22 passes, 13 runs. I had hi

  5. Bert Jones was a pleasure to watch play. He threw the prettiest spirals you ever seen. Dude did it all as a QB but injury claimed him. I once read that Belichick said he was the best pure passer he has ever seen. There is no reason to disbelieve him either. He is the player that made me a Colts fan.

  6. Bob Lamey has been covering professional sports for 40+ years. He has known these players, had interactions with them daily, for over 40 years. Not one person has said he was a racist until now. Odd

  11. Man, that's a huge compliment, especially from you because you know and have studied the game. I really appreciate it, thank you! I wish I had more time to analyze and dissect games around the league. I have some down time right now, but this is generally not the case.

  12. Yes...the mullet....that isn't the only thing Jeff had in common with Billy Ray Cyrus...Jeff was a 1 hit wonder as well with that year in Minnesota. He was the coach killer. Every coach saw his arm and talent and thought he could get them to the playoffs but in the end he got them all fired lol.

  16. It wasn't Lamey's joke, it was someone else that told the joke years ago, he was just repeating what the guy had told him. I wonder how that conversation even came about? Meaning what would make Lamey think of that joke that was told to him by someone else many years ago. I wonder if the reporter asked him something about race? I have no idea. I remember many years ago there was a race car driver by the name of Willy T Ribbs and he was the only African American race car driver trying to qualify for the Indy 500. He never could qualify for years and his car was slow, maybe when the joke was tol

  17. That is a very profound statement PT. Like it or not, everything reporters, booth announcers, or favorite son celebrities say or do gets scrutinized. Well said. Darn, I'll really gonna miss Bob. This blows. That is a fascinating question LCF. I say that because everyone has heard the phrase "respect your elders" for the wisdom & life experience they have, but we seldom flip that coin & ask but what if age is just a shield or crutch some seasoned individuals use to never adapt & evolve? Not referring to Lamey here BTW. Yes, discrimination comes in more than 1 form i

  18. First off, If i am posting too much,..let me know, i'll slow down. I just wanted to share another write-up I found that i thought was quite interesting. https://www.stampedeblue.com/2018/8/21/17763800/whew-preseason-game-2-was-rough-but-there-seems-to-be-an-evaluation This is a fan post with a different type of insight. And he may be right. It say's that Reich is purposely not putting the best players on the field together with the 1's. And he is purposely trying to put players in positions to FAIL. All for evaluation purposes. Rise up and fight through to succeed

  19. No, we should not pursue Mack at this time. He will cost the Colts high draft picks that Ballard is not prepared to trade yet. The Colts are NOT one great player away from being a contender. We are a number of great players away. Right guy, wrong time.

  20. I need to learn to stop putting my foot in my mouth. Trust me I was as surprised as anyone. Doesn't change the fact he is a big downgrade defensively. I knew he had a good bat and expect him to continue to hit well. He has lost some of his punch but he is still a dangerous hitter. Again I like him as a player and a signing....it just meant to me that someone was hurt to go out and get him. Maybe this is what the team needed. If guys don't produce then Theo will go out and replace you in the lineup. That said Russell/Baez double play is probably one of the best in the league. Both have great ra

  25. Cardinals win again! Very nicely done by them. The NL Central standings after tonight (August 22nd) reads as: Cubs 72-53 *best record in the NL, own #1 Seed Cards 71-57 (2.5 back) *own the 1st Wildcard spot Brewers 71-58 (3 back) *own the 2nd Wildcard spot -In the NL East, Braves own the #2 Seed as of now (71-55) -In the NL West, D-Backs own the #3 Seed as of now (71-56) -Of course in the AL, the Red Sox are running away with the league at 89-39! Can anyone beat them come Playoff time?

  26. I don’t know bob Lamey at all personally but I’ve seen nothing before this to suggest he is racist. I think he made an error in judgement and is paying the price for that. That alone does not make him a racist and those saying it does are being sensational as they probably don’t know the man to say if he is or isn’t just like I don’t. The problem is he’s the voice of the Colts and it’s at a time that race relations are an all time high between team and players. The Colts would have feed right into that controversy in a large way had they not done something with Bob. That doesn’

  27. Obviously what Bob said was wrong. He should've never said the full N-Word, he made a mistake. Yeah none of us REALLY know him but I seriously doubt he is a racist. He has friends that are black and has been around black athletes his whole career. One would think if he was, several people would've came out years ago and said something. Honestly he has interviewed guys like Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, Robert Mathis, Dwight Freeney, Gary Brackett and so on. When you have racial tendencies red flags go up, I have been around a few people in my time that have had those and can spot it pretty we

  32. The Colts can no longer afford to be the team that can’t run the ball and play defense. It’s why they haven’t won another Super Bowl. I know the Eagles and Patriots use a RBBC approach, but most teams have a top back. Let’s hope Mack or Wilkins emerges.

  33. He's asking what does "holding back one's speed" mean. I actually had the same question. I am not familiar with the language of car racing. In the article he is quoted as saying: Do you think anyone's holding back their speed at IMS during quals? Do you think anyone's holding back? ^^What does that mean? He continues: And that person had replied 'there aren't any 'blank' in this race." https://www.wthr.com/article/13-investigates-colts-announcer-bob-lamey-accused-racial-slur-days-resigning Now that I have read this more, it doe

  37. Yeesh. Every team uses preseason to evaluate players. Every team holds back their play calling in preseason. The Colts looked bad Monday because they played sloppy, committed too many penalties, dropped too many passes. Not because Frank Reich purposely put them in bad situations. Also, the article makes a point of saying that Luck's decision on the interception wasn't bad, but his ball placement was. Wrong. Luck was throwing to Doyle, not the RB. Even throwing to the RB was a bad idea, because he was pinned on the sideline and short of the marker, so you

  38. I don't think he's trying to lose on PURPOSE. I don't think he's trying to win either. I think like the implication is that they are throwing them in the fire and see if they perform.

  42. What pass did Lamey get? None. He lost the job he loved. He’s humiliated in the city he lives in and now the story has gone national. All people are asking for is a little compassion and understanding. That’s what being 80 years old and having a spotless record up to now should get you....

  44. My WR coach who played In the AFL and trained everyday in the offseason with Larry Fitzgerald taught it as a combination of a bunch of things. Acceleration, not speed, is probably the most important thing. Being able to change your speed at different times of the route is what deceives the DB. Route running, which is cutting and fluidity in your running is also very important. Spatial awareness, like knowing where the open pockets are in a zone defense are is important. Then speed. It’s a combination of those 4 things I would say but a good receiver could get by with 3 of them. Bes
