  1. The night my now Wife and I got engaged in 1978, I took her to an Orioles Game. Sat two seats from the O's dugout. Jim Palmer defeated Texas 2-1. I still have a brick from Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, safely hiding here in Indiana. Talking about franchise names reminds me- the Baltimore Orioles became the New York Highlanders, who later became the NY Yankees. Then the St Louis Browns became the Baltimore Orioles. You could've had a baseball team and a football team, both named the Browns
  2. I was born in Baltimore, in 1954. Watched and enjoyed the Colts. My Wife and I Moved to Indy in 1980 and my Mom sent me the Baltimore Sports pages. (There was no such thing as the internet) She spent a small fortune on postage. I was going to buy a satellite dish to find Colts games, thinking they were moving to Phoenix. Instead, they followed me to Indy. I Do wish they had changed the Logo, so as to keep the histories separate. BUT- As Wild Bill. Hagey would use his body to spell it out- C O L T S!!!!! (Orioles too!)
  3. I'd rather he find some blockers, so the ball gets to Wentz before opposing DLinemen.
  4. Braden Smith, from Guard to Tackle.
  5. Trading Marlon to San Fran, the Jets, or Baltimore would mean facing him yet this year.....
  6. Everyone repeats that Wentz is injury prone. Yet there is a thread that he hasn't missed a regular season game in two years. Wentz got hurt this week being tackled after our OLine failed to protect. That can happen to any player on any play. That's not Wentz's fault. I just hope he doesn't hurt his ankle further by playing.
  7. I never expected that we would have questions about 4 out of our 5 OLinemen, which is why Wentz got hurt.
  8. That shows the Colts as the 19th most valuable franchise. Bob Irsay originally had bought the Rams (ranked as 4th most valuable), and swapped them for the Colts.
  9. My team got to watch the film a month after Coach got it back from the Rexall Drug Store developing it....
  10. Unitas was physically beaten every game, yet prevailed. Peyton (my favorite NFL player), Brady, Marino, and Montana, might not have survived under those rules- who knows? That's why I agree with your dividing the generations. I rank Montana number one overall. Peyton is my favorite, and in the top 3, but Unitas put the NFL on the tv $$$$$$$ map, for the 58 Championship game.
  11. I didn't look, but no one in the thread mentions Lenny Moore. Kenny is 2nd only to Jim Brown on the All 75Th NFL Team. (Quoted from Wikipedia)Moore scored a touchdown in an NFL-record 18 consecutive appearances starting in 1963 and continuing through the entire 1964 season, ending in 1965. This record stood for 40 years until being equaled by LaDainian Tomlinson in 2005.[6] Because his streak was interrupted by a five-game absence due to injury in 1963, he does not hold the NFL's official record for consecutive games rushing for a touchdown.
  12. Cain was waived/injured by the Ravens Tuesday. Sound familiar?
  13. After his Wife's remarks, I wonder if she would've allowed him to sign back on with the Colts anyway?
  14. Since that's jersey is retired- Would it retire the virus? If so, i'll buy one!
