  1. Glad we have the division win against Tennessee, but having both our losses in conference is not ideal. Next week's KC matchup likely won't do is any favors there. Should be interesting, though!
  2. Part of the problem Minkah has with the Dolphins is that they're using him as a SS. I don't think we'd want to move Malik into the box, and we have Kenny manning the slot. Not sure where Minkah would fit in, starter-wise, on our team. Though if I remember correctly, during his draft process people RAVED about his character and leadership, so that would definitely fit into the locker room. I don't see us making a move. Especially if Miami is trying to ask for a 1st rounder.
  3. I'll be there! Coming in with my wife and toddler from Chicago area and meeting one of my buddies and his girlfriend who are coming up from Kentucky. He's a Falcons fan and our birthdays are the 15th and 16th this month, so it's kind of a birthday gift for each of us. Section 451 Row 1. Ready to celebrate my son's first game with a W!
  4. I thought Lewis was inactive yesterday?
  5. No thanks. Long injury history, not super efficient, and paying draft picks and a top 3 salary for a RB that has struggled to maintain 4.0ypc doesn't really entice me. Wouldn't mind taking a RB on day 2 in next year's draft, unless Mack just balls out. But no way I'm paying what it will take for Gordon.
  6. Seems like our bad Luck situation may have (rightfully) scared the Texans a bit. Clearly their draft picks on the line aren't looking up to the challenge. If I'm a Texans fan I'm livid. Get next to nothing back for Clowney but give up the farm for Tunsil/Stills? To think this all could have been avoided if they showed just a LITTLE urgency for Andre Dillard instead of letting Philly trade up in front of them. They may take the division this year. They may not. But their going to be looking rough in a year or 2. Love it.
  7. I think I saw it was originally the Chiefs 6th rounder... so yeah. Definitely a late 6th lol
  8. Right. It's not hard to understand. Vontae got upset halfway through a game and said screw it. Luck had plans to announce at a press conference the next day, but some moroon leaked the info to Schefter to hang Luck out to dry. If he gets to announce it, rather than it being leaked, the whole thing looks 100x better. (Though the timing is still just awful)
  9. When did I say he did it for the fans? Of course they do it for the money. But the fact that somebody else pays them millions of dollars does NOT mean he owes the fans anything. Nobody compared him to Jesus Christ... ever. Again, I completely understand the boos. The situation and not having any time to process it would understandably leave many angry at the time Luck was coming off the field. But days later, after hearing his reasons and remembering the time he played for our team, if you're still upset then it's a you problem. Not a Luck problem.
  10. That's all based on nothing though. At the press conference he said he knew a week and a half prior. He went out and warmed up and admitted he thought that was probably the last time he'd throw at LOS. You're going to cry about a guy wanting to get one last session in? Why? Because he didn't tell you it was his final time? Weak sauce. I don't fault the fans for the boos. There wasn't enough time to work through what they just saw and many were angry, understandably. But now, days later, people still throwing tantrums believing Luck somehow wronged them is asinine and ch
  11. It has to do with their false sense of entitlement. Spoiled children who are mad that they didn't get things their way and feel that players somehow OWE them their well being because they bought a jersey. It has to due with their human decency and their character as a person.... or lack thereof. Be upset at the situation. Be upset at the timing. Don't be upset at the guy who played and gave his body up until he felt like he couldn't anymore. The fact that other players have been injured before, or worse, is irrelevant.
  12. Unless Jacoby wins us the Super Bowl this year, if Luck for some odd reason decided to come back next year, he would ABSOLUTELY be back as the starter. Ballard and Irsay would want some long term assurances before taking him back, of course, but if they reached a point where he wanted back there's no way they deny him. He's still the better QB, by far.
  13. @DocMcCockiner Sounds legit.
  14. Pretty sure he can't. He's not eligible until the 2021 draft. Next year is Herbert, Tua, and Fromm as the frontrunners for first round QBs. Could you imagine if we went from Peyton to Luck to Lawrence though, with only 2-3 years of QB purgatory between them all? That would be insane.
  15. With Ballard's current drafting success, I don't see us in a position to get Lawrence in 2 years. Plus that's a long way out. I don't think anyone was ready to be back looking for a QB for another 5 years at least... but it does bring its own excitement to the offseason.
  16. First round star RBs definitely get a raw deal here. Mostly due to the nature and realities of olaying the position. 4 years plus a 5th year option. Possible franchise tags. That's up to 7 years of team control. By that time the RB is now 30 or dang close to it. Can't be giving massive contracts to 30 year old RBs, especially after they've likely been ran into the ground. Granted, 5 years of first round paychecks and 2 franchise tags is a hefty sum of money... but no more than any other player selected in the same draft slot who might not have as hard of a time getting the security
  17. I'll be getting an HD indoor antenna if this isn't resolved soon. One time cost but the OTA channels like CBS/FOX/ABC/PBS are free, provided you live close enough to the broadcast tower. The antennas have pretty wide ranges. CBS is definitely my favorite local station. I also enjoy CBSSPORTS which got pulled as well. I'm so ready to pull the plug and cancel my DTV. Unfortunately, they've got me by the shorthairs with their exclusive Sunday Ticket rights, since my wife and I are fans of different teams (neither of which are the local team). The second there's an alternative streaming option,
  18. That's a happy looking kid, right there! He'll remember that forever! Glad you guys had a good time! I saw your other post where you talked about how your son came to you through adoption. That's awesome! We adopted our son as well. We were front row on the bleachers over on Field 2 in front of where Darius Leonard was warming up and getting us all hyped. If you were on that side of the field too, I'm sure you saw my son (African-American toddler in a Hilton jersey) running all over the place and my wife (the only person I know who would show up to Colts training camp in a Pa
  19. In this very thread. Page 1.
  20. Can anyone tell me the parking situation? Do I need to bring some cash or is it free parking? We'll be going on Thursday 8/1, coming from the western Chicago suburbs. First training camp ever and I get to bring my 18 month old son. Pretty excited about making a tradition out of it!
  21. I didn't see a topic for this. If there is one, please feel free to merge. On Tuesday, the NFL Network had their AFC South day, which aside from Darius Leonard being featured on Total Access, included the 30 minute season reviews for all 4 AFC South teams. I've watched a couple times already and it's got me stoked for the next season. This episode really seemed to highlight Ebron and I can't say enough about how much love he shows for this team. My son has outgrown his size 2T Hilton jersey, and I think Ebron might be the next one I buy for him. Either that or Leonard,
  22. Mike Tanier is a frequent league-wide NFL contributor on B/R. He's kind of goofy and light hearted in most of his articles and loves using jokes and humor to get through some of his assignments, without being quite as in your face as someone like Adam Rank (who I love strictly for b s WWE obsession, lol)
  23. Good stuff! I remember seeing this here a month or so back and really enjoyed it. Just did a search and found the topic I originally saw it posted in.
