  1. You're telling me Joe Flacco is not elite? I for one am shocked.
  2. My whole view is Andrew always viewed football as a job more than a passion. He loved it because he was good not the other way around. I would guess he got injured again outside of football, but not to the point to prevent him from playing. Like the nagging wrist injury you have that seems to flare up with dull pain every once in a while. And since it wasn't debilitating the medical staff just have him pain meds to deal with it. Since he's dealt with that, and he fell into a dark place from injury before, he promised himself he'd never go that route again. Being newly married, and with a kid on the way he probably questioned if he really wants to put his life outside of football on hold to prevent anythjng from happening. He's worn down from being injured, probably everyday, for the past 4 years. He wants to enjoy the new life that's on the way soon. And he's going to get beat up again if he keeps playing that will likely require the rehab and treatment he endured before that he clearly doesn't view positively. The management gave him the time to reset his head, most likely last week. Hoping that when he comes back he falls in love with football again. He went into that practice knowing he didn't love the game and didn't expect it to invigorated his need to play again. Hence thinking it was probably his last time throwing. I don't blame him. You have enough money for multiple lifetimes, and you aren't in love with your career anymore. I'd probably make the same exact decision. He has more important areas of life than football. It's just a damn game.
  3. I say yes, but only because our parameters seem to be very lax. We have about 4/5 people that really are only there because they were good players during the years the team was terrible.
  4. Well I finally figured out my password. Hello to all my old friends. Firstly, I want to say thanks to Luck. He did everything he could for the team, and man does it suck he's leaving. It's understandable though. The frustration of unrelenting injury taxes like no other. But however, I've said it then, say it now, and will always say it forever - March 7, 2012 is the biggest mistake the Colts franchise will have ever made. The franchise was always going to be better of lining up behind Manning. Because at the end of the day Luck lasted just 31 games more. Unrelated PS: @Gramz
  5. Wow. Colt McCoy, someone should trade for him. Buffalo, Houston?

      Let's wait a few more games. Even Cousins had a stellar start...and now he might fell to No.3 QB.

      I still remember when colt got blasted by harrison. one of the worst hits ive ever seen

      Name recognition wise it works. Colt playing for the Cots as a backup. The commercial endorsements right themselves. Yeah I know 2nd string or 3rd string guys don't get endorsement deals.

  6. Had a tee time for 12. It's a sunny 40 degrees out today. It's a beautiful day to play golf. Only if it didn't snow last night.

      The snow has got to go sooner or later right? Like FX said, all you can do is chuckle about it. :) Green grass, golf, & shorts...Eventually, we can break out all 3.

      Ah, got out to the practice range yesterday!

      Was wonderful to watch the white orb flying through the blue sky!

      Yes, my greatest cure for the football offseason blues.

      Luckily we are getting out today! My tee time is 2:15. Here we go

  7. Paul George! HOW DO YOU DO!

      GO Pacers! I'm no basketball guru, but I do root for most teams INDY based except when Bo Ryan faces Indiana in college ball anyway. :)

      I'm not a big basketball fan either, but I do like me some Paul George. No clue why.

  8. Happy 38th birthday Peyton.

      #18 may not literally be 18 anymore, but he plays football with the passion of a young man anyway. Have a nice day Peyton!

  9. So I joined a golf club thinking it's a bunch of guys having some recreational play on the weekends. Nope, real club that competes against other Universities. Oh crud.... I gotta step up my game.

  10. "You can try and take it - ten year ago someome came with guns, sunglasses suit and tir then took iy from me." Peyton to DT on record touchdown ball. haha the comedy never haults with him.

      I am so happy for all the 18 loyalists whose support never wavered or diminished...You all know who you are & I respect that devotion. Kudos my faithful Orange Crush Brothers & Sisters! :D

  11. Why every time the Broncos have the 415 game there is a tie, and I miss the opening quarter. But every time the Patriots play they switch right away due to "contractual obligations."

      I don't. I usually want to continue watching the early game, but they always pull the "due to contractual obligations."

      A true enigma that will never be solved in my lifetime FX. It's right up there with what really happened to JFK & where Jimmy Hoffa is really buried. Some things will never ever get a definitive answer.

  12. HOLY SNUFF!!!! BENGALS GAME!

      haha yeah, what a TD

      Lucky long bombs must suck. Don't they Baltimore?

  13. Adam's streak of 154 games with a point ends today. Did we really need the two pt. conversion?

    1. Susie Q

      Susie Q

      The way the game ended they should have let Adam kick. IMO

  14. I started reading Johnny U: The Life and Times of Johnny Unitas, and it is an amazing book! And I've only ready the first chapter.

      Got that and read that too bayone!! How true is this from book The Life and Times of Johnny Unitas?

      In a time “when men played football for something less than a living and something more than money,” Then again I love the Man so much I think I am Johnny Unitas!! Heee!!Heee!

    3. Coltsince4

      Coltsince4

      One thing also, Something I'll never depart with!! My signed Johnny U Football!!!! What was cool also Johnny U. worked with a close friend of mine after he retired!! OK, I could go on and on!!!

      I errored before , typo , so true FX, at 1 point was $ 6 a game think when in Sandlot when Colts got him

  15. Watching the last game of Mo at Yankee stadium was extremely emotional, and I'm not even a Yankee fan. I'm afraid of the day Peyton retires.

    1. T Y Goodbye

      T Y Goodbye

      I'm a Red Sox fan, but I also know that Mo Rivera is one of the greatest, on and off the field..and he deserved that, and all the other tributes and accolades he's received..That ceremony was awesome..baseball is losing one of its greatest players, and role models..Mo Rivera, will be missed by all baseball fans

    2. Fx Stryker

      Fx Stryker

      He truly will be. I always loved Mo. They should retire the cutter. haha

    3. AllYouNeedIsLuck

      AllYouNeedIsLuck

      I'm gonna Mo so much. And then when Jeter retires, wow. Bout to be a whole new era in New York.

  16. You're batting 1.000 this week in the yahoo weekly pick 'em challenge. Great job buddy!
  17. Eli says Peyton was a big Twisted Sister fan during the 80s. haha, not bad not bad.

    1. BrentMc11

      I still get Twisted Sister and Quiet Riot mixed up :)

      Well FX Payton made the wait worth while. Right ???????

      To take your Christmas day analogy 1 step further FX, it's like disappointment substituted for exhilaration. You think you are gonna get boring, mundane clothes & you are overcome with joy when you tear open your present to find Colts tickets & a brand new XBOX. Translation: 18 stalled on the 1st drive, but he put the offense in overdrive very, very quickly. :)

  19. Ben Affleck will be the new Batman. Ummm, what? WHY?????

      Fx Stryker

      Well he is the Batman for the Superman/Batman crossover, and probably for the foreseeable future. Probably the Justice League movies.

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      Why would Ben Affleck do this when he is such a good film director with films like "The Town" & "Argo?" Is he trying to better relate to actors & actresses when he directors more motion pictures to get the best performance out of them? Maintaining his street cred in Hollywood? Strange...

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      Good point Jay! It's like beating a dead horse & then backing up with your car to the finish the job a few more hundred times. Overkill is a very dangerous thing. Let Batman disappear & slumber in darkness & silence for awhile IMO.

  20. Thoughts and prayers to Derek Wolfe and his family.

  21. I'm not a huge basketball fan, actually would say basketball would probably be 6th/7th on my list. However, I really have enjoyed watching the Pacers the past two seasons. So my question is, why did they trade Kawhi(sp?) Leonard?

    1. southwest1

      southwest1

      Sorry buddy, when it comes to baseball, I know very little. Brent, who has a much better grasp on the MLB than me, will probably offer some valuable insight on your Leonard question though. Jay Kirk is pretty well versed in a wide array of sports too.

    2. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      The Pacers wanted George Hill...and wanted Leonard too....I love Leonard's game...love it. Here is an article I found...really good insight FX. :)

      FX...it ended up 4 in a row did't it? Navarro, Wood, Valbuena....and I forgot the other one...may have been 3.

      I heard yesterday on 3 straight pitches Tigers 1st 3 batters hit home runs, the pitchers 4th pitch of ist inning went right for the head and he was ejected

      Imagine throwwing 4 pitches, ist 3 for homers and 4th getting ejected as went after the haed, thats a bad inning

  23. Have you ever wondered who the best division in football was for the past decade? Will the results match the general perception of the toughest division? Will it be the youngest or oldest division? The results may come as a shock. Stay tuned....

      Yes, 2002-2010

      If you are talking about average wins, I'd actually guess the AFC South - unless the last couple of years drove that down. Some whine about the Colts having an easy division, but aside from the Texans that simply wasn't true. The Jags and Titans were often very good for years, while the Colts had the best record in the sport.

    4. MAC

      MAC

      Well since you stopped at 2010 (didn't notice, duh), then I guess the AFC South for sure.

  24. I think Microsoft is running a conspiracy. Google Chrome runs extremely slow on Windows 8. For me at least, but I've been living with it for the past couple moths. Decided to test the waters with IE, and it blows Chrome away. I think they want me to use IE. lol

      There really is never a NEED to upgrade. Heck if you're the e-mail/internet only type of guy you probably can run Windows '98, lol.

      Stick with an IMAC...PCs are too much of a hassle IMO, but I will admit that I'm biased toward Apple computers. Good luck resolving your dilemma FX.

      Coltsince4

      Oh yea I remember why I had to upgrade and (why I shouldn't have)why one day I'll have to upgrade again darn it, because

      my old guitar and bass lesson instruction cd's and dvd's wouldn't load in vista because they were

      98 and now sooner are later something won't load in something else and I'll have to buy something else and on and on. OK now why didn't I think about that way of making money Huhhh???
