  2. Congratulations and hats off to you guys on your win. This loss stings I have to admit. I admit those holding calls were pretty Bad that pushed you out of FG range. We were up 14 and blew it. We really didn’t deserve to win this game. You guys won the turnover battle including the most crucial one that MVS fumbled away. I think we will lose in the 1st round of the playoffs again if we get there. This game is totally reminiscent to the 2012 game in Indy against you guys. Anyway there was some bad holding calls on you guys but you deserved the win anyway. You never gave up down 14 and I could fe

  4. Rivers appreciation post An incredibly entertaining year A phenomenal playoff performance Stabilizing the QB spot Proving just about everyone wrong 3rd highest scoring offense in Colts history Holding our breath on every deep ball I quite enjoyed the year of Rivers, and if it is to be his last, thank you, Philip!

  5. Apologies in advance, this will be long. Can't be helped. Since he retired, I have publicly stated I thought Andrew Luck mishandled his own retirement about as badly as possible. His need for privacy led to him mishandle the end of his career. So any hate that has boiled up I figure he brought upon himself. When there are anti-Luck threads, I mostly stay out of them. And when I do join in, it's to make one post to set the record straight on some issue, and then I leave the discussion. But in the past week or so, a new school of thought has surfaced that has

  7. The disrespect Luck gets from fans is awful. He did a lot with the garbage around him and some fans act betrayed. The man made a choice choosing his health and family over a game. I have no hatred towards Luck. The timing was shocking but I understand it in the long run.

  10. The grass is always greener on the other side, folks. Philip may not be perfect, he may make a few decisions that may cost a game or two over the season but he is still the best option for the Colts, that will get better with time. His history of picking up steam in November and December will continue and he will have us fighting with TN for the division contender title. Even Brian Hoyer looked good in relief, so folks wanted to anoint Andy Dalton after a brief cameo. Once they made Cam Newton a passer, his inaccuracy loomed large. There is a reason why Peyton, who coul

  11. It’s always a great game when we play you guys. We usually come out on the losing end though. I hope it’s a great game with no injuries. I believe you guys beat us the last 2 times and the last one I think you beat us in our house. The Colts are a classy team. I hope you guys stay safe and healthy too from Covid.

  12. Before I get into the GB&U.... I'm going to start with "The Silly" The Silly -If you didn't expect an ugly game travelling to Soldier Field, you might be silly. -All the stuff about Rivers from some of you is just silly. Did he look great today? No. But he did however have the highest QBR and Passer Rating than any QB that has faced the Bears so far this year. And Rivers did it on the road in Soldier Field. An 82.5 QBR for comparison sake, would be 5th best vs the league average right now. Calm down, have a chaser of context with your beers lol.

  16. Every year come draft time the media and fans tend to show their horns and bash certain picks and praise others all with very little knowledge of the individual player and the reason they were selected. Just like last year you HAVE to factor in Carson Wentz as your 3rd Round Pick just like Buckner last year.....otherwise you are not giving justice to the full draft. Ballard and Company's draft track record should give critics pause when bashing XYZ player/pick. Since 2017 43 of his 45 draft picks are on an NFL roster and contributing. The lone 2, Malik Hooker and Reece Fountain - b

  17. Like all radical draft fans, I scour the internet daily for interesting tidbits about the upcoming draft...especially where it pertains to my Colts. I have my theories, which are sometimes different from my guesses, just like all of you might have. Here is a list of things I think I think. Rampant assumptions that are often falsehoods: 1) The Colts didn't do enough in FA. First of all, Free agency is neither won nor lost before the season has been executed to determine the success or failure of lost/acquired/or not acquired players. Let's take Mack for example. Some felt it w

  27. Jim's suffered from depression over the years and lost, perhaps the love of his life, a few years back, right before his arrest. His push for the Colts organization to work hard to de-stigmatize mental illness is impressive. Too many are lost to suicide when they cannot admit their affliction and get some help. This is a worthy effort. Note: lots of Colts greats are featured in the video

  29. About doggone time... TY is one of my all time favorite Colts. I'm very happy he's staying. Not only do I think he can still play -- he's not TY of 2014, but he can still be effective -- it's awesome to have a legacy player continue with the team that drafted him.

  30. Sure is a lot of talking down on a guy who is averaging 4.1ypc, against said stacked boxes. While catching 16/17 pass attempts his way. People must forget Mack averaging 3.8ypc his rookie season. Tomlinson averaged 3.6ypc his rookie year, 4.3ypc for career.

  31. Long time Eagles fan, here is my rundown on Carson Wentz. I'll start with Wentz the person/teammate. Through 2018 he was widely considered a great guy, great teammate, hard worker. Then out of the blue in 2019 a local Philadelphia writer Joe Santoliquito put out a piece on Wentz that wasn't very positive. It had a lot of damning stuff in there from anonymous teammates and people in the organization who labeled him entitled and selfish. The city was very angry at this article and dubbed Joe as an attention-seeker and putting out a smear piece. Joe's home was vandalized for putting out the

  36. Lets go through this and see if he's right. QB: We have Wentz instead of Rivers and gained Elhinger. Probably better here as long as Wentz is adequate. RB: The same starters which is great, and a solid UDFA as well that can compete right away. WR: Definitely better depth-wise and for competition. However, none of them are guaranteed to make the team. Also get Campbell back and have him play when he hasn't played before. TE: Add Granson to the group and it's a bit better. Lost Burton, but that should be a even exchange this year and an upgrade year two and beyond if h

And I hope his mom finds the peace, love, and happiness that she has EARNED. I am amazed at the journey that she has endured. I don't care if this man gets a single sack in his rookie season. As long as he gets 1% better each day, and helps us win games, I hope he stays a Colt for life.

  38. https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/02/22/mmqb-carson-wentz-trade-washington-front-office-tim-tebow Good stuff included. Wentz requested a trade after the season ended, the Eagles gave his agent permission to talk to other teams, Ballard gave the Eagles a deadline, and now Wentz has been traded. There's some good commentary that fills in some gaps about the way things fell apart in Philly, and how the trade came together.

  39. Trubisky and Darnold - they can roll out, do boot legs and Darnold can push the ball farther better than Trubisky, and both can use their legs. But Wentz can do all the above and push the ball farther slightly better than those two, and is probably the only one who had a season like he did in 2017 and some chemistry with Reich. The last time we got someone with familiarity with Reich, which was Rivers, we went from 7-9 to 11-5, didn't we? So, if you look at it objectively, if you are going to give up SOME draft capital, Wentz was the logical choice based on ability, familiarity an

  40. Personally, I'd take him back in a heartbeat. Unless someone else that is clearly better presents themselves, it's a no brainer to me. No preseason, covid camp, musical chairs at WR and TE most of the year.... And he still was top 10 in yards and completion %. Don't think he was outside of the top half in any meaningful stat. ... And folks that want to harp on INTs... Brady, Willson, Wentz, Goff, Murray, Ryan, and Cousins all had more. Big Ben, and Herbert had the same... Luck only had one year with a lower INT%. I might be harder on him if he wasn't a new QB to the t

  44. Just some historical perspective as to whom we have under center right now...... Essentially broke all SEC Records set by Peyton Manning before graduating as a senior.... Drafted in 2004, threw approximately 20 passes in 2004 and 2005 as he sat behind......Drew Brees. So in year 15 as a starter, with an AVERAGE year he will move into the top 5 (historically) in yardage and touchdowns.....trailing only the likes of Brees, Manning, Brady and Favre but passing by Marino in both categories. Not bad for playing for some awful crappy and some awful con
