    I think most are just frustrated.... period. I agree with what All that you said. Personally, it doesn't frustrate me that they are opting out, more that i see the season slipping away. We brought in Rivers and Buckner. Added exciting weapons in Pittman and Taylor and i think most here were excited about our chances. Its emotional. I think some are voicing frustration toward players only because who else are you gonna yell at? The “invisible“ enemy? In the end , i personally dont think it will matter. I see the league shutting things down after 2 or 3 weeks. At most. Training camp is gonna create cases, then more will wanna sit out, paid or not. Then , just like baseball and Georgia schools, things will shut down. I just dont see how the NFL steers clear of the virus. Near impossible in my estimation..

    I agree with this. I think last years team would have been good enough with the addition of Rivers to make the playoffs. He doesn't even need to be all that good. Just consistent. As long as he doesn't try and play hero ball the Colts are in good hands. Hell... maybe he will surprise everyone with his abilities. He's 38? Honestly a lot of guys were still great at that age (not elite). And I think the media has really unfairly judged him on one struggling season. Which I truly can't understand why.... they need someone to talk down about i guess. They want to give Brady every excuse in the book for why his season wasn't stellar but Rivers? Hell no!

    Curious, when has a team willingly let a QB go to a division rival without exhausting all measures and stops? Even GB wouldn't let Favre hang in the NFC, let alone go to the Vikings (though he eventually got there anyway). I do not see it coming to fruition.

    Fan forums are used by members with opinions. You can agree with the opinion or choose not to agree. Either way, it's fine. But to think one's opinion is lesser than yours can get upsetting. There is no correct call here. These players are doing what they think is right for them and their families. The team hurts a bit but in the end, it's just football. This year is going to be wacky no matter what.

    As a fan, if a player that I think will really help the team opts out, it's disappointing. From a human standpoint, I get it.

    If Tucker keeps it up until he is 47, and IF his stats are better than Vinny at 47, AND if he ends up with 5+ ... THEN we can talk about Tucker being the GOAT.. OH, and he has to make a kick more iconic, memorable, and deserving of a nickname than "the snow kick", because if you type "the snow kick" into google, guess what the first thing to pop up is?!? ... yeah, that's right... And guess what's second? (say what you want about the Pagano/Grigson era, that game in Buffalo was one of the best things to ever happen in the NFL, there's nothing that compares to football games in the snow) Until then... Tucker can be what Vanderjagt was during his Colts career... "the most accurate kicker in NFL history"...

    I think if I had stayed in IN when I was beginning to watch baseball it would have been between Reds, Cubs, and Pirates since triple A. But by the time I was 10 I had moved. When I am in STL next year I will probably try to attend as many of the Cubs/Cards series as possible since there are 10 games and I'm 15 minutes from Busch at that point

    Around here when I was a kid it was either the Cubs or Reds because Indy didn't have a team. I chose the Cubs.

    @2006Coltsbestever I became one just due to proximity and the fact the Peoria Chiefs, where I am still living, were the Cubs affiliate at the time I started watching baseball like 12 years ago. If not for that IDK who I would be. I am going to be living in STL though in a couple months time though

    It's unlikely that this happens. However, if it did, you'd have to be nuts not to want him back on your team. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. Some people are upset, sure. But you'd pass on a top 5 QB because of emotional entanglements? Insanity.

    That is how I became a Cub fan as well. I got cable tv in 1984 and the Cubs were always on WGN with Harry calling games and I got addicted. The 1984 team was great too (fun year) and should've been in the WS but blew a 2-0 nothing lead in the NLCS. I loved Ryne Sandberg and Rick Sutcliffe. In 1987 the Cubs were mediocre but Andre Dawson won NL MVP and once again the Cubs were fun to watch. I just stayed a fan since then even through the lean years and there have been many. Finally in 2015 the Cubs became a powerhouse and have been since then winning a WS in 2016. Off year last year but 84-78 was still a winning season. So far this season, the Cubs look great again.

    Here is where I sit. Which is a safer situation to be in. A controlled environment that is constantly testing and taking measures to limit contact, sanitize, and limit the spread of the disease and because you are being tested so often could likely notify you that you caught it sooner and help protect you from spreading it to your family and allow you quicker treatment all the while making millions of dollars well i think that would be a better option. Staying at home isn’t exactly safe...and I’d be surprised these guys aren’t at more risk by opting out then opting in. That said it’s a free country and if they are worried about their health that is respectable....I mean sure they play the most violent and harmful sport/activity that one could so obviously worrying about their health goes so far but it’s their right to choose. Just know you while you are sitting someone is taking your job and that money you pass up there is no other job after football that you can make up that money in.

    Thats less than ideal. If there is a group that we cannot afford losing rotational players from it's the secondary. I don't blame them, they have to do what they have to do for their own and their family safety, but it sucks for the team.

    These are young guys, many planning families. The virus is dangerous for pregnant women so, this is definitely a family decision

    Anyone think Luck would have opted out?

    Being frustrated as a fan is different than being frustrated at the player himself. I get frusterated when a player gets injured. It's no fault of the player, but still frustrated. If this season happens, the Colts could do really well, so losing a good player is frustrating to me.

    I'm not frustrated like that, I'm more caught off-guard it was him out of everyone. I realize that people are going to opt-out and I respect their decisions. I already told NCF this in another thread. Maybe your blind hate of me (and you do hate me) is making you biased of what I said.

    Why anyone would be frustrated by a player opting out is a mystery to me, and frankly just mind-numbing. They are making a personal decision based on their own health or perhaps their families health. This has nothing to do with his drive to play. That is a comical.

    As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan. But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan. This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV. Our TV provider had WGN and since I had morning classes, I could go home and watch Cubs games in the afternoon since Wrigley didn't get lights until 1988. I really enjoyed those teams...Sandberg, Jodie Davis, Leon Durham, etc. The best part was listening to Harry Caray call the games...he was one of a kind and made watching so much fun. In April 1983, me and a couple of friends made a road trip from southern Kentucky (Bowling Green) to Chicago to attend a Cubs game. It was my first trip to Wrigley. We left late Saturday night and drove all night to arrive in Chicago Sunday morning for the game that afternoon against the Giants. We got into the ballpark to watch batting practice and it was a cold and windy day...surprise, right? Our tickets were in the lower level a few rows up from the third base dugout. I look down and see Harry Caray on the field behind the batting cage talking to players and coaches. He makes his way to the gate in the brick wall near the end of the dugout to walk up the steps through the lower level to get up to the press box. So, my friends and I walk over and I hand my camera to a friend and I block the aisle so Harry will have to stop. I ask if I can get a picture and autograph and he gladly obliged and threw his arm around my shoulder and I got the priceless photo with him. I also followed the Cardinals since their AAA team was in Louisville, KY, near where I grew up and lived in southern Indiana. I went to a lot of Redbirds games and saw many future Cardinals come up through Louisville on the way to St. Louis...Van Slyke, Coleman, MgGee, Zeile, the Benes brothers, Langford and many others. I eventually became a full-time Cardinals fan once Harry Caray retired and watching Cubs games just wasn't the same as it was with him doing the broadcasts. Thought you all would enjoy this story.

    Justin Tucker is an amazing kicker but he has only played 8 seasons. Lets see how he kicks in year 20 if he last that long. In 2014, that was Vinny's 19th season and his best % wise.
  32. 1 point
    I am rolling with Vinny if I had to choose 1 kicker all-time with the game on the line. Vinny in the 2001, 2003, and 2006 playoffs made more big kicks than any kicker in NFL history. He made more big kicks in those playoffs than any kicker has in NFL history. Without him we probably don't beat the Ravens in 2006, he was 5-5 that game scoring all of our points. He also made the game winning FG in the 2001 and 2003 SB's. In 2001 that kick he made in the snow against the Raiders to send it to OT, I doubt hardly any other kicker could make that.

    Sounds like not true...must have started on CNN or MSNBC. Ha, ha, ha. "not true' got substituted for "f___ news".

    Understood. The player and representation would probably file a grievance at the mere suggestion, given how brazenly it violates the CBA. That kind of stipulation would be completely unprecedented; a player retiring suddenly, close to the start of the season, is not unprecedented. There are no grounds for that kind of stipulation. To be clear, I don't think Luck is ever coming back. If Luck did express a desire to come back, I'd be skeptical about bringing him back and relying on him as a critical part of the team. If the Colts were to accept him back, I would assume they know certain things about his decision to retire, and what has changed since he made that decision. And they would be confident that those circumstances were resolved entirely. But this is a waste of data, because it's not happening.

    Malik Hooker has to be up there, hope this year he returns to pre injury form and think he may but since his return hasnt been what I and I'm sure many others hoped he could be.

    The NFL is probably going to mandate social distancing in all games. Should make for some high scores.

    Most overrated on the roster is Chad Kelly, has never played a single regular season game and people think he’s the next Peyton Manning
