  1. On January 24, 2017, the Colts Forum lost a treasured member of its family, @Gavin Brandon Lee Marshall, known as Gavin to us, was a long-time member (Senior Member and Hall of Famer). A diehard Colts, Cubs, and Pacers fan, he was active on the forum nearly every day, sharing his thoughts and insights. He had over 25,000 posts and more than 7000 likes. He made us laugh. We learned so much from him; his contributions will be missed. We are not aware of the cause of death, but regardless of the cause, he was taken from us too soon and we'll miss him. So glad

  5. 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 difference

  6. I will start by saying there are some great people on youtube. They split the games so you can see every play by a QB in an entire game in 8-15 minutes. And this past weekend my wife got sick, so as I was hanging around to take care of her, I watched every game available of the four QBs. I did not review Burrow, Tua, Herbert or Hurts, the first 3 because I think they will be gone by pick 13 and Hurts because I think the idea that he has a future as an NFL Qb is media hype because he seems like a hard working, likeable kid but he just does not seem like a QB to me. I will say upfront, some

  7. My deepest sympathy to Brandon's family. He was smart, opinionated, passionate, funny, and kind. The forum will miss him terribly. He was an important part of this band of very talkative Colts fans, our Colts family. RIP Gavin, we wish you were still here.

  8. 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

Gave his family the use of his private jet. Here's the ESPN story with a picture...

  12. We can go on and on about the moves Ballard hasn't made , but because we truly aren't privy to what he's attempted to do , let's take a look at what can be judged : what he has done 2017: Released D'Qwell Jackson - good move, not in league anymore. Old and overpaid. Re-signed Jack Doyle - good move Traded Dwayne Allen +6th to Patriots for 4th -- smart trade , rid himself of a high salary for an average player. Is just a blocker in New England Released Patrick Robinson-- eh, debatable , but he wasn't that good for us Signed John Simon- good move Signed Jabaal Sheard-- really good

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!

  16. I was given tickets to the game yesterday as a very nice Birthday gift. I went into Lucas feeling pretty confident that we would easily beat this this team, and that the Trap game stuff I read on here was just crazy talk. After the first Field goal miss and as our offense began to struggle against a very good Broncos Defense, I started to get nervous. When they scored after halftime I really started to get a bad feeling. The last 3-4 games I’ve been to, they’ve lost, really was starting to get a complex, lol. By the middle of the fourth, some fans were starting to lose fa

  17. Jim Irsay isn't perfect. His drug/addiction issues are well chronicled. He's had some messiness in his personal life. He used to tweet too much, and sometimes seemed less than coherent. He's a poor public speaker. But the man is a great NFL owner. He gives his football people whatever they ask for, whatever they need, he doesn't meddle, and he doesn't stand behind them looking over their shoulder, calling them out about all their mistakes. He spends money, he empowers his people, he supports them, he's patient with them, and every decision he makes about his football team appears

  18. I've seen some stats tossed around about "building" a team that can compete for a Super Bowl. I think some of what has been tossed out is "convenient" cherry picking, so decided to finish a little drill down that I started a few months ago. Anyway, just the facts below. In short, I've looked at Super Bowl teams since 2000, and listed their unit and total ranks. I've also added QBR rank. Below is a summary of some key takeaways and conclusions. Below that, is an easy summary of total and unit tiers, and farther below is the raw data capsules of each team. I've used tiers rather tha

  21. It has been said here recently that Ballard and Dodds have not drafted well and that they have failed to provide us fans a solid team from 1-63 on the roster. It is widely considered among NFL GM's and pundits that if you draft and develop 2-3 starters/contributors in every draft then you are doing well. This is not even getting into the rest of roster construction through savvy trades, shrewd free agent signings and good scouting on waiver wire pick-ups. 2017 NFL Draft (Drafting for a Lame Duck Coach) Starters: Hooker (Rated as 5th best Safety in NFL), Mack, Walker

  24. Can we please put the Le'Veon Bell to Indy rumor's out of their misery? That dog don't hunt and frankly never did. Mack looks to have the makings of a feature back and is complemented very nicely by Hines and Wilkins. 200+ yards in two straight games by a younger and far cheaper group. Why would they ever consider giving up the asset or dollars required to get Bell?

  25. NCF does a yearly apology thread for when he makes people mad with his posts on this forum. I want to do one here and explain why I act the way I do at times to people who have no idea, or just think I'm completely crazy or a troll. I have Bipolar. That means I'm going to be at both extremes when it comes to anything happening on the Colts, good or bad. When good news happens and we are successful, I'm the most optimistic person on the forum and will actually overreact in a positive way because I'm so excited something good is happening. I'm the person who was telling my mom about

  26. Free Agency is far from over and the NFL Draft is still more than a month away. We are installing a zone coverage 43 based defense, and our new offense will have a heavy influence from the West Coast offense. Get used to a lot of 11 personnel (1 RB, 1 TE, and 3 WRs). With that said, let’s break down the Colts current roster. Quarterback We can feel confident that Andrew Luck will be back as all signs are pointing upwards. We know that he will have some rust. The good news is that he should have the entire offseason to re-acclimate himself and the year off was good for h

  28. When I see some of the garbage going on with AB, Jalen Ramsey, Zeke, etc. I’m just really glad the Colts emphasize character. No one is perfect and I can see a little diva in Ebron at times, but for the most part, the current team is a band of “team first” guys and I’ll take that anyday over guys primarily concerned about their “brand”. I heard Rick Venturi say the Colts are overemphasizing character and making the point that “you don’t have to game plan for character”, but character was a big reason the Colts won 9 out of 10. Character is what keeps guys from pointing fingers,

  29. Got to give some love to Desir. He's quietly been playing at a very high level. He has shut down some of the league's top receivers (Hopkins, Amari Cooper) and was matched up against Hopkins again today. Before the game, Hopkins promised that he would not be shut down like last time. He emphatically stated that it would not happen again. Desir (and Deshaun Watson) held Hopkins to 5 receptions for 37 yards, again.

God has blessed so very much and I offer a prayer to all those that are less fortunate, alone, hungry, in pain or any other type of distress. Precious savior in your unlimited wisdom and Grace we pray for the people that need the help the most. Please find a way out for the desperate. Bringing families back together and help them find the provisions they need. Thank you Jesus

  31. I just finished watching Ballard and Frank's press conference... how many of you complaining watched it? They make a lot of interesting points and comments on this draft. First and foremost, Ballard is 100% confident that this league is won up front, especially in December and January when it matters most. That is so important to me as a Colts fan as it has been neglected time and time again. He commented that he "dreamt of the day when he drafted o-line and dline." He feels that strongly, and I tend to agree. They both talked about the division and how important the trenches are

  33. Are you trying to play victim before the thread even gets started? Baffling thread... What? Did you watch the SB? Besides a few splash plays like that bomb from Mahomes to Hill, that was a RBs game. NFCCG? SF RBs won that game. How did the Titans go into Foxborough and beat NE? RBs. RBs are definitely important in todays' NFL.

  35. Because we'd be 13-0 likely if we had Luck. I'm not a Ballard worshiper, but this isn't on him. He's upgraded or made solid attempts to upgrade every unit after inheriting what was mostly a dumpster fire in terms of depth and talent. Even the JB fan club knows this boils down to the change of QB. Not saying we don't need upgrades in several areas, but who here thinks we're not at least at 11-2 had Luck not left and playing for a 1 seed right now, even with all the injuries.

  36. Tonight I watched the Colts drop to 1-4 but even after taking another loss to the Patriots, I came away from the game happier and a lot more positive than I normally would after suffering a loss. Andrew Luck is phenomenal. Tom Brady's team won the game tonight, but Andrew Luck was not only the better Quarterback tonight, I believe he's all around better than Brady right now, period. Tom Brady's team was actually able to run the ball and he's been playing in the same system for nearly his entire career. He's always had the same head coach, and he's still surrounded by gu

  37. 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

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.

  39. 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.

But my ghosts go way back. I want the Colts to get a W at Heinz Field more than any other place, against any other team. Jimmy struggled against them. So did Peyton. So did Luck. Pittsburgh Steelers lead series 24-6-0 Need I say more? Ok, I will. The Colts played them 25 times between 1950 and 2008. In those games, we scored more the 24 points.......2 times. How
