  1. Unless you find a way to get Corona virus from the broadcast of TV...... you may be OK The broadcasters can protect the small team they have with masks I think we are going to have football (But I have no crystal ball) If we are still shut down in September, kiss this country goodbye There isnt enough money to print to pull it together. Your pets will end up being your lunch The answer is to protect the elderly, and wear masks when possible, not crush the greatest nation this world has ever seen........

  3. I have mixed feelings on the article. I don’t see how JB is ranked higher than Dalton, Winston and Newton. But... either way it’s nice to see a professional show appreciation and respect to our guy. JB is clearly a top-5 back up and NOT as one noted poster recently called him... “soon to be flipping burgers...”

  4. First off, it's a HS job. Doubt he retires or leaves the NFL early for that gig. Second, given his history of having 9 kids, it makes it clear that when it comes to business, he is never one to PULL OUT prematurely.

  7. Man. I really want this to happen. We already have arguably THE best OL in the league with the guys we already have. we have one....ONE weak link. And even Glow is not a bad OL. He was a lot better the year before than he was this past season. He definitely had a down year. I’m just saying. He was Pretty good a couple years ago for us. Adding Warford Pushes Glow to the Roll of our main backup O-Lineman. Solves a lot of our depth issues for sure. It’d be nice if (knock on wood) But if a guy can’t go, us to be able to throw Glow out there for a week or 2. So... Adding Lar

  10. But Philip doesn't - he's only lost there twice (the last time was in overtime) in 9 career games against the Jaguars and he's never lost to them in his home stadium. Rivers is 6-2 at Jacksonville and only 1 of those games was decided by less than 2 touchdowns. I was at that game in 2015. The Chargers were up 31-19 with only 1:37 left, and Jaguars stop us on 3rd down & 10 from our 34 yard line. We line up in punt formation, and they don’t even put anyone back to receive, indicating that they intend to sell out to block it. At this point, the Chargers have several options (call

  11. You can facepalm all you want, but once again, no one said Irsay should sell the Colts because it is in his best interest, or Peyton has a right or is more fitting as an owner. As a fan of Peyton, it would be cool. That is it. That sentiment seems to be going over your head. I'm willing to bet Manning has more of a fan base than Irsay.

  12. I'm not arguing your main point, because you're right. But just so everyone knows, the next game Philip misses, if there ever is one, will be his first. Ever. In his entire life. High school, college and NFL. That's right. He's never missed a game. At any level. Maybe some of you can, but I honestly don't know that I can justly even speak about that. It's utterly beyond my ability to identify with that. Heck, I miss work every year, and I sit at a desk developing software for a living. Not any behemoths crashing into and landing on me 20+ times a day doing that, either. As I nickna

  13. It's a fairly new school, but in an area where they know some people, and according to Philip, it's a place that aligns with what he and his family believe in the areas of education and spirituality. So they think it's a great fit for what they want to do next. Good for them, and I hope it works out well. But get the Lombardi first .

  15. I think expecting more than a year for rivers is a bit ambitious to begin with. Makes me feel even better that we got Eason in the draft. To your point I think the opposite. I think he’ll give everything he has and end things on a strong note

  16. Ok...please explain the crappy situation for him last year? He got to play QB for a team that made the play offs the year before and was being g talked about as a SB contender. I think most QB’s would like that situation, no? His first year where he was traded for and then starting not long after obviously wasn’t ideal, but last year was a dream chance that all back up QB’s would die for.

  17. Projected Cap Space 125 mil Must re-sign Kelly - We need to keep our o-line intact. Kelly deserves to be one of the top paid centers 4 year 42 mil 20 mil G Houston - Houston walked in and became one of the best players on our defense. Provided leadership and constant pressure with 11 sacks and I can see a similar season this year. He still has plenty in the tank. 2 year 25 mil 15 G 102 mil cap space Would like to see Re-signed Walker - Walker and Leonard imo are one of the best LBer tandem and Id l

  18. I find this article pretty insightful about Bill https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/jan/29/bill-belichick-new-england-patriots-strategy-nfl-super-bowl-liii Playing in a league full of copycat speed over bulk defenses, you develop an offense that is designed to pound a lightweight defense. With an offensive line (including blocking tight ends) and backfield that can put it to you down after down, you tire out the defense, dominate possession and score some. When they cover your receivers, you pound it to them. When they stack the box, you still pound it to them, pick up some yar

  23. I don’t want to see Irsay out of majority ownership of the Colts, the man has been a great owner. He is very passionate about his team, he has spent plenty of money on it and involves the fans in a lot of ways. He is quirky and just an eccentric man. Manning could absolutely be an asset to not only the team, but to Jim and the Colts brand. you are correct, as a fan, it would be fantastic if we could get Peyton involved in an ownership partner to Irsay, wow, how much more recognition would this team get just with that bump alone. I would love to have Peyton as a minimum, to have a rol

  24. I have found Manning's post retirement life so interesting. I thought for sure he would be involved in pro football in some way and he has instead just relaxed and did his Peyton Places show which was really good. Now this month he will play golf with Brady, Tiger, Phil for charity. He just seems really at peace and enjoying his life. It is a pleasant surprise as he was such an intense player I thought he might become like Jordan and be somewhat bitter without the game but he has been the exact opposite. Very nice to see.

  26. Well of course. Just a reminder that Bucky Brooks wrote this during last season: ”This will be an unpopular opinion in the state of Indiana and beyond, but the Colts are a better team with Jacoby Brissett than they were with Andrew Luck as their QB1. Now, I know the Luck apologists will flood my Twitter timeline with all kinds of venom, but allow me to explain.” Not only did he make this absolutely asinine comment...he then called anybody who would disagree a “Luck apologist.” # that guy.

  28. IMO , pass protection from a RB is probably 80% intelligence . He should have no problems as he's smart , big and an excellent athlete . Not that my opinion means much but I'll say he'll be just fine.

  29. Yeah the trickiest thing for him will be putting on that weight AND maintaining his speed and explosiveness. If he can get to 185, he can be an ideal Nickel corner.

  33. I feel alot better with JB on the roster for this year. Rivers hasnt missed many games in his career, but he’s only 1 hit away from needing a backup. Especially at his age. If Ballard is all in for this year as some think, its a smart move to have a more tgan capable backup. With the cap hit affecting a trade, and relatively little savings from cutting, it makes sense. After getting caught with his pants down over the surprising Luck retirement, he did say he wouldnt let it happen again. Going into 2020 with Eason and/or Kelly as the primary backup could be a repeat of just th

  35. Maybe this is more about picking his son’s high school. Rivers wants to coach his son. It’s natural that you would start considering schools well in advance of enrollment. The news that Rivers will be coach will surely provide a massive recruiting boost to the school on every level, so they want to publicize it now and hence the “press conference” at the school. Okay this makes more sense now. In any case, it’s so wholesome that his post-retirement dream is to coach high school. I love it.

  36. Zone defense only works if you can get pressure. Think of teams like the Seahawks and Vikings. Even the 49ers played a lot of zone. It works, but you need to win upfront.

  38. That is not true. He was taking all the starter snaps through training camp and preseason. Many expected Luck to miss 2-3 games to start the season. He was the backup behind Brady for a season in New England and even started 2 games. He started 15 games for the Colts the next year. He was the backup QB behind Luck for a full season. He started 15 games for the Colts last season. He still struggles with the same stuff he did in college. He was given great chances and had 2 great QB's to learn from.

  41. Ehh, I don't know if they invested any more time in him than they would another late first / early second round guy on their board. They spent a bunch of time on Pittman, right? Doesn't mean they changed their mind on Love, just didn't have a high enough grade on him to take him at #13. It was the hype train that suggested they might, not really anything the Colts did.

  44. IMO, Taylor doesn't run like Barkley. Barkley has more shake. Taylor runs more like Frank Gore or Nick Chubb. Although he has some shake, I think the style he ran at WI was more of a one cut and straight ahead guy. Even though he doesn't have a lot of catches, he seems to do well with the opportunities hes had. The fumbles look like they are the result of trying to hit the home run on every play. Something a 4.39 runner probably thinks he can do a lot. He may have to dial back that thinking in the NFL to seize only the opportunities that are really likely to prod

  45. Badgers run a ton of outside zone. They probably run inside zone too at times, which is common with zbs teams if the defense loads the outside. Here's a good article from last year. https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/film-study/2019/07/105067/film-study-despite-running-the-same-system-for-nearly-two-decades-wisconsins-oversized-offense-continues

  46. The following chart is NOT set in stone; there will be exceptions for players on the roster bubble. Certain players may play DE in sub-packages, while playing LB in base 4-3 packages. Of course, there are specialty packages; e.g. goal line, 4th and 1, 5 wide, Nickel, Dime. Lastly, players will be injured at some point in the season, leading to replacements being called up. You get the idea; it will not be accounting for each and every hypothetical but is a general guide. My apologies in advance for the poor quality of the colors; I'm doing it from a backup PC at this ti

  47. For me, it’s Joe Montana – he went 4-0 in Superbowls, and never threw an interception in any of them. People reference Brady and his numerous rings, but IMO, although he didn’t personally cheat, he definitely benefited from the cheating (Spygate) that his team was doing and that accounted for his first 3 rings! https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/kurt-warner-suspicious-patriots-deflategate-article-1.2094128 The Chargers were likely victims of Spygate as well, they were 14-2 and the AFC’s #1 seed in 2006 when they were knocked off at home by the #4 seeded Patriot

  48. Unitas was the NFL All 50th Anniversary Team QB. Without him and the Colts 58 Overtime Championship on National TV, there probably wouldn’t be an NFL today. So he was my vote. Side note- Lenny Moore was also recognized on that team- yet many on here don’t even recognize him in the Colts Top Ten!?!?!? Most ratings, prior to Brady’s success- rate Montana as by far The Best. I still rate Joe as better than a Brady. I personally enjoy Peyton as my Favorite Person who had an NFL Career. Not only innovative and successful, but fun-loving and Charitable.
