    Hey guys, want to thank everyone for your input on the Colts, I have learned a lot from your input on moving forward good or bad LOL At my age it's time to past the torch to more inquisitive minds to see what the future holds for our organization. I only wish the best for us as fans and hope you will too. I am a old timer who knows my time is growing shorter. I hope I will be around longer, but, if not I hope you guys keep the faith and the dream longer. In this busy world that we live in , time marches on , and my only wish is that we can all agree that. no matter what our differences is that we can form a bond that we are galvanized to the betterment of our franchise. So in retrospect , just remember we are all Colts fans and give your fellow fans, the respect regardless if you agree with them, that in the end it's about us as a team.

    It was an outstanding play that shows why Hooker is viewed as an elite talent. Not a perfect throw by Rivers, but it took Hooker flashing from out of the frame to snatch the ball away with one hand to stop a back-breaking TD. This is the type of play that you said he didn't make in 2018 (setting aside his injury recovery). He's a playmaker with insane range and excellent ball skills, and that play shows a sample of those traits. You're going out of your way to downplay how outstanding that pick was. By the way, I was at the game (humblebrag), sitting right behind that end zone (it was great for the pick and the Mack TD, not so great in OT). Hooker made an amazing play. I thought it was a sure TD, and then #29 comes out of nowhere, looking like a superhero. It was a very impressive play by any standard.

    This is my first time being on the forum since Andrew retired. It took me a long time to accept it and get past it, as I was basically heartbroken for a multitude of reasons. All the respect in the world to him, I'll miss him, and I wish him happiness and health in life above all. But, looking ahead to 2019, Jacoby's extension, etc... This may be kinda long because I haven't said much in a while. Before I get to my main topic of discussion, I'd like to reiterate some points that have been made by others here that I agree with. 1. The length and price of Jacoby's extension is perfect. Team takes care of him, but protects themselves and has a chance for that deal to be a major bargain. 2. This team is loaded and cannot and will not tank for a QB. 3. The fact that they extended Jacoby now vs after the season shows their belief in him isn't hyperbole, it wasn't just smoke to try to drum up a trade. It's real. 4. If Ballard and Reich believe in Jacoby, they have earned our trust up to this point, and therefore we need to trust their evaluation of him and put our faith in him as well. 5. My biggest point of emphasis...Ballard and Reich did the best they could with the Luck situation. Things moved quickly, they tried to handle it internally, they hoped Andrew would reconsider, but he didn't. Ballard is always as direct and honest with us as he can be. He obviously should never come out and say "Andrew is considering retirement" and putting everyone into a panic... he needed to let that process play out before he involved us. I trust him completely...and if anything, I feel absolutely terrible that this happened to him. But I know he will navigate us through it and we will win. But, onto my actual topic... While I do believe Jacoby is a very good QB, I think his extension actually tells us what they're thinking internally. "We trust you, but we don't know for sure what your ceiling is, so go out and prove it and then you'll be compensated." But what makes me excited about this is that, yes, this is an evaluation year for Jacoby, and the team could not be set up more perfectly to see how good he can actually be. The roster is loaded. Top 5 O-line, tons of weapons on offense, an offensive head coach with a high end scheme and playcalling, a top 12 defense with all the starters returning, along with big additions like Houston and Rock. There are zero excuses for Jacoby. In 2017 there were A LOT. Just traded to the team, new playbook, new teammates, new scheme, new terminology, terrible o-line, no weapons outside of TY and Doyle, beyond awful coaching and playcalling... I mean... literally everything that could go wrong did go wrong for Jacoby in that season. Yet we had 4th Quarter leads in 9 games. With a much much much worse roster. This year, he's had virtually every single starting rep all offseason, 2nd year in the system, and the team is better at every level. Regardless of how this season plays out (which I think we will be successful and still make the playoffs), we will have a definitive, black and white answer about our future at the QB position.

    First off, losses happen, it doesn’t mean we need to freak out. second, I have no idea why some of you are in complete freak out stage. 6 months ago and all thru the summer, we heard people clamoring about the first 4 games and how tough they were. With Luck, MOST people said they’d be thrilled to be 2-2 or best case, 3-1. Now, we’re without Luck, and suddenly 2-2 means blow it up, we’re done. Seriously folks, there’s gonna be ups and downs with a young team that’s missing several starters. Deep breathes

    By far, our biggest mistake of the draft was not trading back into the 3rd round so we can hear Pat McAfee announce more picks

    That final drive to ensure the win after the Falcons put it in question was just a thing of beauty. Used the pass game, used the run game, kept it short not because he had to but because it was the best way to win. Marched down the field using all our weapons. Our OL was battered an struggling but held up just enough to allow us to execute. Well done to Mr. Reich. That was a major strategic victory against a team that, while a bit mentally soft, is no joke to play against. They almost outplayed us, they gashed our D hard, but our HC had them out-thought and it didn't matter

    And yes this is a yelling matter. It is amazing me some of the post and threads on this forum after a loss to the raiders. Its like most of you are completely pushing to the side how much of an impact our 3 star players have on this team. Darius leonard was the DROY of the year and you replacing him with a rookie who is just now really getting playing time, yea you are going to see a massive drop off at line backer. We really do not have another true FS on this team so yea we are really going to miss Hooker and you're going to see more yards thrown on us with essentially 2 SS on the field. On top of that there is a 4th round rookie taking the place of him. We also have another rookie playing CB, one of the hardest positions to learn and hes doing a good job but will continue to get picked on. So we have 3 rookies out there starting and 5 that are getting alot of playing time, if you factor in the fact the rest of the rotation pieces where only in their second years with limited snaps we have an incredibly young defense that are still trying to gel together. I dont understand why people think these rookies are just going to immediately be all pros. As far as the offense goes our best receiver not being there of course is going to affect us. We essentially started 2 rookies and a 3rd year UDFA and a QB who throws the ball as hard as he possibly can. Thats a bad combination for drops. I've been very critical privately with Brissett and have lots to say on the matter but I will continue to hold that to myself, but some of you pretend that there is no drop off from Luck to Brissett. IMHO with Luck we are undefeated. We have yet to be completely out of a game and have only lost by the largest margin of 7 points. We are not getting blown out people this is still a very good roster. IMHO we are a good qb and a good DT away from a super bowl. The head calling for Ballard is asinine. Hes built up likely the most talented roster we have seen in nearly a decade, losing our best player at the most crucial position of the game is going to set us back a year or two. Be patient colts family.

    I'd ask this..... Why would you, or ANYONE, make such predictions now? Based on one game? This post feels like someone had one six-pack too many and sat down at his computer..... And then you top it off, by calling anyone who disagrees with you.... a homer..... Geez, what a train wreck of a post..........

    Model citizen. He just needed to get away from Big Ben's toxicity in Pittsburgh. The Raiders got a steal. Colts should have been all in on him.

    I dont post a lot and I am not here to stir the pot. I was a Season Ticket holder until I had to move for a job. I was not at the game, but I saw the hurt on Andrews face when asked about the booing. It looked like it really got to him. I know this isnt what we wanted and I am as upset as anyone, but he did give us his all and it wasnt his fault that Grigson couldnt find people to protect him. He went through a lot of pain and suffering for our enjoyment and I for one wish him well. He is not a quitter and if he would have had a better line we wouldnt be having this conversation. We are a GREAT fan base and to hear he was booed really upset me. We are so much better then that. We love our team and I was so looking forward to this season as we all were. I just hate to think that this is how he will go out thinking thats how WE feel about him. This Organization prides itself on getting the right type of player to build a great culture. A culture that makes players want to come here and I would hate to think that that display will detour some from wanting to play here. I know the other players on the team heard it and are upset. They all love the guy, how could you not, and I am sure they feel sorry for Andrew knowing that will be the last thing he hears from the fans! Like I said, I was not there and I hope that it was a small group and not a collective group that booed. Like I said, I know I dont post much, but I just feel sad and upset just like the rest of you, but I also love the Shoe and all that wear it. Andrew was special and I just wish they could have protected him. I lay that on Grigson and nobody else. Sorry for the rant guys. We are a GREAT fanbase!!!

    lol.....Brissett aint getting no hook in favor of inferior qbs like Brock Osweiller or Matt Cassell after 5 weeks time. The Colts organization is alot more behind Brissett than many of you wish to aknowledge. Notice there is very little talk from the Colts since last weekend? It's all business with them. Brissett is the qb in 2019, and there is plenty of confidence in him from top to bottom.

    In my opinion, what Luck did actually is worse. Now, before you all call for my head, read this and let me tell you why. One of these two had numerous interviews and pressers saying they were expecting to play week 1. One of these two went out 2 weeks ago, in front of all the fans, and ran cone drills, then said afterwards he felt pretty good. One of these two went out on national tv on the 3rd preseason game and threw footballs in front of the fans at the stadium and on tv. One of these two then announced he was quitting late in the 4th quarter of that very game in which he was throwing footballs around in the pregame. The other never actually said in public he was going to coach the Colts. People aren't, I repeat, ARE NOT upset because he retired. Most everyone is understanding to his reasons. People are mad and upset because he taunted fans for the last month with things mentioned above and more. He played the fans for their emotions, he showed off in front of them twice at games. Then suddenly, retires with a lame excuse such as "losing the love of the game". That doesn't happen over night and it surely doesn't happen middle of a game where you're on the sidelines. No, this whole thing was brought on by Luck himself. He toyed the fans and that is why so many, including myself, think he betrayed the team and the fans.

    All this repetitive shivering snivelling fear of losing to KC is tiresome. Good teams lose games all the time. We are clearly not favourites to win it but rattling on about it in just about every thread is unnecessary.

    I can’t say enough about what Vinny means to this organization. However, why is he still playing? It was obvious last year that he should have seriously considered hanging his cleats up. What he did (actually didn’t) do today was upsetting. Not just to me as a fan, but to his team. The team has been through a lot this month and they still showed true grit and have stayed in this game the entire way. Vinny let everyone down regardless of how this ends.

    I'm saying again just off my eye for talent I think Sirriani and Reich could mold Chad Kelly into a real nice NFL QB. Hopefully JB is the answer, but if not I think the answer could possibly be here already.

    Bummer that all the starters are out! I’m going with a group of friends, including some Bears fans(Boo!). Alot of people on here saying they feel bad for people going and that it’s too much money to go watch scrubs....Going to a game at Lucas is more then just watching the game. It’s about tailgating, hanging out with good friends and having a good time, razzing the opposing teams fans, all in fun of course, and also hanging out with fellow bleed blue colts fans! Same reason I went to watch the Cubs even during the bad years, the atmosphere and fans were awesome no matter what. I don’t really mind watching the second and third stringers fighting for their futures. As far as price, I got a pretty good seat for $48, so can’t complain. It’s going to be a fun day no matter what, not going in with high expectations like I do during regular season.

    If u only bought tickets because you wanted to see Luck play I hear there's openings on the other 31 teams for 'fans'. It's crazy how many people want to talk about Andrew like a dog. U really think he wanted to stop playing and leave all that money on the table of probably $40mil per. There's more to life than football and/or money. He is a doing what he feels is best for the future of him and his family. No need to call names because it hurt your feelings.

    Sorry. Where is that written? In the Fans NFL guidebook? It's nonsense. This happens when it happens. You might as well think of it as Luck sustaining another injury, this one in the pre-season. You don't plan to get hurt. All this fan-boy outrage over quitting with two weeks before the season starts is just so much incredible nonsense. Stuff happens. It sucks for the Colts, but oh well. Stuff happens.
  47. 11 points
    Yeah it’s a game. I hate that he’s retiring but Andrew Luck playing football doesn’t impact my everyday life. If this is the worst thing in your life right now you should be thankful for what a great life you have.

    1. Never dismiss a rape allegation. They should always be taken seriously. 2. This report is from 1 website. Wait for other outlets to confirm. As of the time I'm posting this, it's the only website to mention Okereke involved in this. Google "Bobby Okereke rape". The reddit thread is the only one that came up. 3. There are serious issues with the Title IX process over the past few years. 4. "Innocent until proven guilty" and "Take every rape allegation seriously" are not mutually exclusive.
