  1. Siragusa was a monster in middle of the d line who ate up double teams, eventualy left in free agency as had many isssues with management like Bill Tobin, Way Marchbroda was treated , & his successor coach Gelindo "Lindy" Infante the good thing on losing him , defense really fell apart and help get few losing seasons and then we got PEYTON - lots of ways to think about how things play out spent to much valuable home PT time and must stop now both threads and also the status posts been getting To bad i am not 1 to make a comment and never reply again when others reply to mine, but the never ending loop which may seem trivial time wise to most is of utmost value to me Weeks starts and back to Dr at 8 am tomorrow then throughout week and weeks to come take care my friend and best to all here and to colts season
  2. 1 complaint surely aint bad interesting stampeded blue top 50 left him out but do agree with 1 complaint is nothing, never said was bad list=- & top 50 include both Balt & Indy teams
  3. only comment , yes its true moistly colts Vs Packers ( what a team besides Lombardi & Bart Star What a backfield, may be best 1-2 punch in g history ) , but would throw in the Browns occasionally as Jim Brown led team and wont even mention shut out score in losing to them in national championship YES mike curtis was devastating player for our defense sanders there due to becoming the eraser when needed for playoff & SB run, otherwise to hurt and stayed on team for hope of getting healthy
  4. Now thats a list, filled with inclusive players from may an era, 1 may say the order can be changed somewhat but that would be a mute comment and relegated more to personal bias on 1 of my earlier comments in this post i noted Bert Rechichar, DB, LB, RB , & mentioned he also had record NFL 56 yard FG for colts, and was a punt returner as needed ( had 100 yard punt return TD in college , and also was a wr as needed, know for faking out players to get fre in college) - man was Mr multi positional for the 1950's colts
  5. Quck look at list and see on Cl.ark on it as only TE u cant tell me either Pollard or Dilger who always caught the ball and when had contact backpeddled for 5 more yards arent better than cato june To early in AM to evaluate list properly
  6. Cato had 1 or 2 really goodf years with some true key plays made , but cant put him up there that high
  7. lets face it won championship before the SB, started the 2 minute drill, 1 SB was hurt all season and only came in game late to try and rescue it , stupid earl morrell though an excellent season didnt see the wide open receiver on a flee flicker for what would of been an easy TD and would of won the game UNITAS WAS SIMPLY THE CLASS OF HIS TIMES & had the brains , film study and playmaking ability, together with confidence & toughness as detailed earlier to play in any era In 58 game inside the 12 or 11 he threw an outside pass , caught and went out of bounds near the 2 , only 3 points needed to win , when asked why chance an IT when a FG was enough he said its not taking chances when u know what u are doing then lets ameche run it in again instead of a FG and a fumble was always possible
  8. actually while i liken Unitas to Beery with Moore out of the backfield, to Peyton to Marvin with Faulk or James in the backfield - call them triplets of old & new if u wish and being old enough & raised on the Balt colts by big brother, & seeing how with a nod from Johnny , Beery would know he changed the call & route based on film study that they did more than anyone back then and that started the 2 minute drive to tie that 58 game YET Marvin i would give the nod over beery- Marvin wasn't the biggest , but what he could do with the ball in his hands before he got hurt ( & I still blame addai for running into his knee ) and the sheer brilliance of his double move and best of all the Marvelous hands that caught anything around him as he tipped the ball around dancing along sidelines till ball was secure before going out of bounds ( no catch will ever be the equal to me as the tip toe playing paddy cake with the ball in the endzone for that TD Vs the Pats while somehow staying in bounds long enough for ball to go back and forth , up & down hand to hand then secure, then both feet touch maybe an inch before sideline then just drop forward out of bounds with secured ball for TD ) ---- or simply diving on a bomb parallel to the ground arms outstretched & catching it fully stretched out was to much to ignore- the man caught what over 140 catches 1 year - if u take his shortened time playing and overlap with Rice he has better stats and has done things for more years in a row yardswise, TD wise catch wise over that span than anyone before or later with an = time period
  9. sorry that was a quick double spasm before was able to pull hand away or would of been many more and did this note lleffy
  10. also 1 must remember as you said you looked at stats , well back then seasons were only 12 games long so less touches for moore Vs James per year and the sport was much tougher on ones body, ( just ask anyone head slapped by Deacon Jones ) What u need to watch is some of NFL networks top 10, The best runs or runs after the catch had that Mackey run I alluded to as 1 of the top ever, You just cant believe how many defenders he knocked over and dragged as he just plowed ahead for a great gain ( dont remember if scored but think was finally gang tackled ) truly showed off hisa power, strength and pure determination ) Finally these old guys never had such conditioning machines nor so many positional coaches , nor nutiionalist who knew anything about fod and thre body as all was though wrong back then etc etc I will never forget and know i said this years ago Re Unitas that he was basically clotheslines across the head and blood gushed from his nose , today u immediately have a Dr at your side esp the QB , game stops as you are escorted off field after initial assessment if not carted , What happened with Unitas , Between plays Mackey stuffed mud up his nose to try and stop the bleeding, worked somewhat,Unitas still bleeding just marched downfield and threw a td - its not that the game has changed , its really a different game somewhere between old time tackle and the pro bowl for lack of an accurate comparison also 1 must remember as you said you looked at stats , well back then seasons were only 12 games long so less touches for moore Vs James per year and the sport was much tougher on ones body, ( just ask anyone head slapped by Deacon Jones ) What u need to watch is some of NFL networks top 10, The best runs or runs after the catch had that Mackey run I alluded to as 1 of the top ever, You just cant believe how many defenders he knocked over and dragged as he just plowed ahead for a great gain ( dont remember if scored but think was finally gang tackled ) truly showed off hisa power, strength and pure determination ) Finally these old guys never had such conditioning machines nor so many positional coaches , nor nutiionalist who knew anything about fod and thre body as all was though wrong back then etc etc I will never forget and know i said this years ago Re Unitas that he was basically clotheslines across the head and blood gushed from his nose , today u immediately have a Dr at your side esp the QB , game stops as you are escorted off field after initial assessment if not carted , What happened with Unitas , Between plays Mackey stuffed mud up his nose to try and stop the bleeding, worked somewhat,Unitas still bleeding just marched downfield and threw a td - its not that the game has changed , its really a different game somewhere between old time tackle and the pro bowl for lack of an accurate comparison

  12. I had added this ON MOORE to my original post via edit after u responded to add to back of donovan cards the moore ones Lenny moores cards say = cpmellinjg stuff, 58 card like he has proved to be one of most sensational t runners to enter NFL in years, like a bolt of lighning streaking down the field with that ball cardled in hand - had best ground gainhing average last year 56 card talks about how fast he can he hit though holes etc Lets face it we all had preference, grew up with original colts thats why I have great personal memories and am jaded Via childhood idols & why have PSA judged set of 58 starters & some subs plus some early and later years like Arts Donovans 52 rookie, Obviously Mackey was later , every unitas yearly casrd of cpurse, talk about multi positional someone called Bert Rechchar- have a 51 rookie size of a postage stamp( actually was college & in college uniform but officially NFL considered it his rookie card even though his 52 card he is still a tenn volunteer , ( back then rookie cards could come out before or even a year after a player was on a team and playing - VERY WEIRD he was a ace pass receiver with great fake out moves,100 yard td punt return ( think was in college but could do it in later years as needed ) , was a "wingback"/ halfback ,at 1 point held NFL record for field goal made- 56 yarder think in 1953 as a colt and was considered 1 of the colts ace DB's , had 5 IT's in 57 i think it was & in 53, voted colt MVP of the Colt DB group as per his 54 card , the 53 card i dont have when he realy became a colt Belive played some roles on 58 team, not sure what though but doubt started, belive he played in all 58 games but didnt start in any sorrry fingers hurt stopping here
  13. cant complain save list needs to be bigger, all should be there, Moore has longer tenure than James BTW art Donovan from the back of his 1957 card -1 of the most able defense-men in the league,, made all pro for 3rd straight time in 56 ( dont know about latter years ) has the power to spare and bolts through the line in a flash to smother enemy passers and rack up runners with shattering tackles-. uses his brain as well as brawn . art is one of the toughest men to trap back of 58 card 1 of the most bruising men on the field,.... opponents want no part of him because he plays to tough... running into him islike butting into a brick wall and when he clamps his massive arms around a ball carrier it looks like he is trying to seperate him from his head Lenny moores cards say = cpmellinjg stuff, 58 card like he has proved to be one of most sensational t runners to enter NFL in years, like a bolt of lighning streaking down the field with that ball cardled in hand - had best ground gainhing average last year 56 card talks about how fast he can he hit though holes etc sorrry fingers hurt stopping here
  14. Thanks for kind words, had time , saw 2 topics i love Luck & old colts ,, time thats free is rare we shall see if I post or not 1 issue being once i post often get drawn into many a long topic and time gets eaten up needed elsewhere,home PT, Drs Etc
  15. Thanks , good to post - Read my above comment in post just before yours -2 posts baCK will always read, commenting hard , fingers can spasm for 10-50 minutes on any mouse or full size keyboard type, after spasm hand locks up also 10-50 minutes, may not happen for a few months or 5 x a day-- the more i use it the greater the chance - tried month back to comment and it happened and after spasms / lock up stopped said forget it & just massaged hand & fingers - sorry know this aint the place to comment on such matters
  16. Thanks for the hi , doing well enough thanks , mini setbacks as par for course but no complaints overall , no significant deterioration - just got to be careful- really dont have time for this as immediately get nice how are u, or welcome back and need to concentrate on pt, drs etc and this not place for that , really should write u what just wrote but easier to wish all the best, the colts the best etc etc for all who bother to read right here than individual messaging with my dexterity issues and just say i may not respond but will always read Luck throwing was important as is this list to this ancient colt fan from the 50's that remebers Unitas in 56
  17. i hadn't seen the nice write up of snippets from a listening session nor did i see anything in writing that said a college ball, all i had read was about a high school ball in a few places and thought it was new as was listed under by CBS a topic luck finally throwing if one clicks on link it says under title Luck was throwing a high school football at Colts minicamp on Tuesday However the listening session included in article does mention a smaller college ball so me bad for not listening the listening session also notes as i guessed & wrote he is doing things right not to rush but this is a good step even if smaller ball
  18. agreed , Parker was a fortress protecting Unitas's blindside Hard to place who is where on list but Moore can run with the best but what a WR as well, or simply out of the backfield best play Unitas hitting him way deep in stride along sideline leading him and keeping him in bounds to keep running for what ended up a 72 yard td if remember right
  19. add John Mackey , a tight end that ran through players, had 1 of greatest runs after a catch ever plowing throw 1 defender after another ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SORRY I just reviewed list again he is already there, guess my short term memory is going
  20. Article is dated the 13th which was Wednesday as well Same to u —- See comment at the bottom of this response I didn’t know there was something to listen to that same interesting take thanks for the snippets Same to you. - been ages. - no idea wheb. Be back— but do read - obviously luck rehab is main thing and drew my attention same to u - see bottom —- Just got back from visiting Brother nephews great nephews and nieces etc. quite tired looked on the forum for relaxation best to all members best of all Colts let’s have a great season. ——- Now it’s time to sleep and really rest again best to all
  21. Hate to say this but I quote Luck was not actually throwing a regulation football. He was throwing a high school football. And he told Pro Football Talk's PFT Live that he had a "mental block" to throwing a real NFL football. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/andrew-luck-says-he-had-a-little-mental-block-throwing-a-regulation-football/ Give him time, hes just easing back and is making sure no setbacks
  22. Hav'nt been here in ages but this with this trade let me just say its AWESOME we got tons of trade value in excess of what trading back 3 spots is worth even without next years 2nd round pick At 6 will be someone thats an still an instant starter of possible pro bowl caliber whether its offense or defense This is why that division is always so easy for the Pats, all other front offices well they are awkward in their moves while the Pats simply do stunning , clever twists & turns we can now hopefully select right and Build that balanced Monster around luck that some past coach only spoke of How Ballard got the jets to agree to this is beyond me, Jets must simply be desperate - this speaks of picking Sanchez the last time they moved up to get a QB & we all know how that worked out
  23. I revised mine u liked starting with Saw the article as was e-mailed to me an e- newsletter, get TWO TIMES,a week a cousin signed me up just above this with link to get many free colt articles, letters etc Have a good day, have to go
  24. Saw the article as was e-mailed to me an e- newsletter, get TWO TIMES,a week a cousin signed me up When read headline i was furious, came to post it for 1st post in ages and saw already was but had to comment Had great trip To Richmond Va ( too short ) & stayed with brother & sister in law, saw both nephews & nice in law and got run ragged by 2, 5 & 7 year old great nieces and nephews Every day is a fight but as i wake that means every day I won Hope u and yours are fine too here is link to subsvribe for free Read instructions, are many things can subscribe to above info from Colt E Newsletter http://click.email.colts.com/help_center.aspx?s=fdf315767c6d017d77147572&j=fe5e17777067017e7117&l=fe601671746103787011&jb=ff63157472&mid=ff001671756202
  25. http://www.colts.com/news/article-1/Freeney-Mathis-Absolutely-Snubbed-From-NFL-Pass-Rush-Duos-List/2e180634-6e25-46d6-a980-ed5f7ebdbcdf EXCERPTs From 2003 (Mathis’ first year in the league) until 2012 (Freeney’s final season with the Colts), this Indy duo combined for 186 regular-season sacks.Think about that: over a 10-year span, Freeney and Mathis averaged almost 19 sacks together each season. ....... but nobody did it better for a longer period of time than No. 93 and 98. Elliot Harrison's Top 5 0- NOTE are basically individual years, not over a long term period ( whomever owns stocks knows results obtained over long term are worth far more tax wise than short term - crazy analogy but same thing ) 5. Von Miller & DeMarcus Ware, Denver Broncos; 2014-15: The duo averaged more than 10.5 sacks together over this two-year span, and won Super Bowl 50, a 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers, to wrap up the 2015 season. Obviously these two were huge pieces of one of the best overall defenses in league history, so while they’re great players, the whole team success stands out.4. Derrick Thomas & Neil Smith, Kansas City Chiefs; 1990: Thomas erupted with a career-best and NFL-leading 20 sacks that year, while Smith contributed 9.5 sacks — an average of almost 15 sacks between the two of them. These guys obviously belong on this list for this particular season, and many others to follow.3. Harvey Martin & Randy White, Dallas Cowboys; 1977: Martin and White were co-MVPs of Super Bowl XXII. Martin had an unofficial 20 sacks in a 14-game season that year, while White reportedly had 12.5 sacks. A very deserving duo, though obviously quarterbacks weren’t nearly as protected then as they have been the past couple decades.2. Reggie White & Clyde Simmons, Philadelphia Eagles; 1991: This duo averaged 14 sacks together that year, and both were First-Team All-Pro defensive ends. They belong, no question about it.1. Deacon Jones and Merlin Olsen, Los Angeles Rams; 1967: Two standouts of the Rams’ “Fearsome Foursome,” Jones had an unofficial 26 sacks that year, while Olsen had 11. This Hall of Fame duo should stick, too.
