  2. Blue is a Hall of Famer and and he generates most of his power from his belly. If he bulked up I fear it would hinder his flexibility and we wouldn’t get to see him smacking down little kids in the peewee league.

  3. Howdy, from Glendale Arizona. This is my 3rd year of trying to upgrade our mascot, Blue. Since our team is still rebuilding to Champion caliber, I thought giving Blue an upgrade that would be more entertaining for kids and exciting to watch the transformation during the game. Here goes, Blue can get the fans pumped up for keeping the lead or having to come back from behind to win the game. On the big screen, Blue runs back to his locker room...the room shakes and the door opens with smoke coming out and "Boom,out comes a morphed mascot called "MIGHTY BLUE!" The fans there in the stadium start

  12. Sometimes it seems like when a sports figure get arrested the general consensus is it's because they are thought to be above the law or they are entitled. In reality the percentage of sports figures getting arrested is way below the national average of the general population. When they do get into trouble it's reported just because of who they are. Right now there are 2,880 players on rosters in the NFL. We read where 2 or 3 players gets arrested and some draw the conclusion there is a problem. If you look at the big picture, it's really not a problem at

  13. Teams will have to stop the run, first. The rest is left for Rivers to read and throw to the open man. We will struggle in the beginning but once we get it in the groove... we are off to the races.

  15. Public speaking isn't his strong area I agree. He also has had addiction to pain killers and had that DWI. Having said that he is a much better owner than his father was and is a much more caring guy than his father was. He cares about the Colts and hates to lose. It is unfortunate some in the media or some fans do not see that. He has an argument for being best owner over the last 20 years IMO. He made sure we drafted Peyton and Luck when some actually wanted Leaf and RG3. That alone shows his football intelligence.

  18. Yeah, I knew where you were coming from. There is going to be a group that says we won but 25 million for 175 is stupid to pay a guy for that production while not being able to see the whole concept and ability. Running it effectively is waaaay safer than throwing it 20 yards downfield plus it allows your defense to rest and stay off the field. I thought we were going to be getting that style game from JB last year in just managing the game to long, drives with clock controlling game plans but he couldn’t make the defense respect his passing abilities. At least Rivers has that game built in to

  19. Oh definitely. I was sort of being sarcastic with the JB reference = 200 a game. Rivers is a nice upgrade and does give me more hope if we do fall behind in a game to comeback.

  20. I’d tend to agree with your thinking here. We don’t need Rivers to throw for 300 a game but what we need to have, is a QB with the threat of doing so if needed and not just when we are 30 points behind in catch up mode with prevent defenses. What will set Rivers apart from JB is hopefully his ability to read and process what defenses are setting up for against us. If we can successfully screen play, run and the occasional chunk play, I would welcome a 200 yard performance in the air with 150 on the ground and 24 points avg/game. Having a QB who can scan and process the field quickly and ge

  21. Yeah I am thinking the ceiling 11 wins, 9 wins the floor. So 10 wins is my logical answer. Most of the media has us winning between 9-11 as well.

  23. I think the Colts added the most talent and are the gaining the most value with an extra year of development from all our young players (especially on defense). Rivers with our OLine and a strongly improved rushing attack and improved D-Line play are both huge areas of improvement. I think we're primed for the 3 seed in the AFC and about 10 or 11 wins. Texans really lost a strong dimension to their offense without the Hopkins-Watson combo. Their O will be abysmal in comparison to last year as soon as Will Fuller gets injured (aka week 3 lol). I wouldn't be shocked if they could pu

  24. Last year people stacked the box against the run... they were not in fear of JB I believe that (actually hope) that Rivers still has enough gas in the tank that when they stack the box this year.....,, Rivers will hit the receiver .... A run first offense doesn’t work if all 11 defenders are not concerned with our pass attack.... I am anxious to see how Pittman, TY , Campbell will all down the field together If we can pull some double coverage on 1 or 2 of them, it will open up the running game as DBs have to also worry about our runners I

  27. I have long been of the opinion that a rookie/Kelly battle for backup (with the loser taking the QB3 position) was the most ideal path forward. Gives the Colts a chance to practice their “competition” mindset...but in more of a low-stakes setting...while driving both players. And it gives both players the opportunity to soak up what they can from Rivers. Plus, I just think those two round out the most talented QBs on the roster. I was a big proponent of signing Rivers (or any vet upgrade)....but the fact is that he is only signed for one year and we just don’t know how this year will p

  28. Let me see if I follow you here: A couple weeks ago you made a thread just to, and I’m paraphrasing, fire up the Kelly fan club. You posted several times before making fun of the Kelly fans. During the season JB was the best thing since sliced bread. Pre-draft you didn’t want any QB besides the top 2-3. It was a waste of a pick for any QB after round 1. After the draft Eason was the best thing since sliced bread and now, Eason may be cut for Kelly. Am I missing anything else?

  29. I agree, however the recover rate for substance abuse is roughly 50-50. For pretty much all of his adult life he's been extremely hard-headed about his problem, saying all the right things (including playing the religion card, when convenient) yet continuing unabated down his years-long path of destruction. I'm not sure his ego got crushed in Indy - why wouldn't it have gotten crushed in Denver when he failed to be the #1? Or previously when he got kicked off other teams? What makes this time special for him? From the perspective of an addict (i.e., from Kelly's perspective), that'

  31. I think it’s probably 90% odds that Kelly ends up on PS Unless Eason craters with immaturity .... ( He seems to be saying the right things now) But...... him moving to the 4th round tells me that there is at least some very strong concerns about the kid that can’t be overcame without some proving He has the strongest arm in this years draft along with a very good release..... he is a 1st round talent..... but there is a “hole” that we don’t know as casual observers 2 or 3 years from now I bet Eason is 1 and Kelly is 2 I can’t

  32. My early prediction is we win the division at 10-6. I think the Titans will be good again too and may go 10-6 as well. I am still not sold on Tannehill being a legit good QB, he is above average though. They used Henry a lot last season too, can he do what he did last year? They overachieved last year IMO. I see the Texans falling off a little and perhaps at 9-7 because Watson is good, losing Hopkins is critical. Jags probably around 5-11. I still think Rivers has 1 more good year left in the tank with the O.Line we have here. Our running game should help him a lot. TY staying healthy is key t

  33. It's definitely not the amount of Yards a QB throws for that is super important but some think it is. That is my point. As soon as Rivers has 2 or 3 bad games statistically the pile on will begin by many in here even if we win those games. The name of the game is winning no matter how it looks.

  34. I see the league shifting towards two types of players: the Russel Wilsons and the Lamar Jacksons. Patrick Mahomes fits under the Russel Wilson category, where they run to avoid getting hit and throw the ball. I’m hoping to see the same thing from Joe Burrow. That kind of style can be very effective if done correctly.

  36. I agree he got in the door because Frank opened it.... But how did he win the Bronco's QB2 job? We know how he lost it, but he must have done something good to win it in the first place.... Beat Bama twice.... I don't think any other QB has done that either.

  41. Ebron has one pretty good season in his career and you think he is a better receiver than Doyle? The only thing Ebron was leading in was drops. Doyle is a much better all around player. He can block and has caught a bunch of first downs. That is something Ebron has never done very well in his career. If he was worth anything to the Colts, Ballard would have kept him.

  42. Purely my opinion... DL - probably the only position you might see a "big" name add is DE. We all know the two names (Clowney/Griffen). I could also see Sheard being added back to the team later once things shake out. Not sure how much the early knee injury impacted him, but his performance really dropped off. OL - small chance here to see a decent name added, but I think we'll likely see action around cut down time. There are plenty of names out there still available though. DB - I could see a S add, or even bringing Geathers back late in the process. I dou
