  1. Without looking him up, I am thinking Fred Dean, awesome DE for the San Diego Chargers! (Pre 49ers) in my old time NFL Card League, I owned both Fred Dean AND Louie Kelcher. Stalwarts!
  2. By odds, Colts are tied for 6th favourite at Footballlocks.

    Talent vs Scheme Fit

    It pays to have a really good Pro Scouting department, to identify these diamonds in the rough that other teams are trying to juggle.

    Kevin Bowen's Colts Awards 2018

    Well I hope your are right for next year. I am almost always hopeful that the Colts will do well, but one needs to understand just how rare elite achievement actually is, to put things into perspective. Example, I thought the Manning years were glorious, but even during that period of unprecedented Colts success, we only saw 3 conference championship games and 2 SuperBowl appearances. I am so hopeful for the direction the Colts are headed, but my surprise will come if they actually make it to the AFCCG and SB.

    Kevin Bowen's Colts Awards 2018

    Those are some rather aggressive expectations, considering the Colts have only made it to the SuperBowl 3 times in the past 48 years! Only 3 times in 48 years, yet you profess to say you will be surprised if they don’t make it? As for AFC championship games, going all the way back 1971, they’ve been to a total of 7 AFC championships and since Manning was drafted in 1998, the Colts have only been to 4 conference championship games. That’s only 4 times in 20 years! My point is that people generally have hugely unrealistic expectations, not understanding just how difficult it is to actually get to the cusp of a championship game. It is rare to even make a conference championship, nevermind making it into the Super Bowl game. Call me Killjoy, but you may want to temper those expectations, for if not, you are most likely to be quite disappointed.

    Yet Another Reason To Change The OT Rule

    Tweak is simple, make it just like if a FG is scored on the first OT possession. Other team gets a chance to possess the ball. It should be the same for a TD. I mean, how is a TD really any different than a FG? One type of score justifies giving the other team an opportunity, but a different type of score does not? That's dumb. Just make the simple change, both teams are to be given a chance to possess the ball on offense. Once both teams have had one possession, it becomes sudden death. So in the examples from yesterday, NE scored on the initial possession, so they should then KO to the KC and the Chiefs get a chance to score the tying TD and extra point. In the Saints / Rams game, nothing would have changed. Saints received the initial possession. Brees tosses the INT. Rams get their possession and score for the win. Fair.

    Andrew is PFWA comeback player of the year

    Well before the season started, I confidently proclaimed that Luck would win comeback player of the year, this year. It’s posted several times here at the forums in various threads. So confident was I that I even made a bet with a real life friend. I expect a lot of beer to soon be coming my way as payoff. lol

    Ballard press conference

    Well remember, his first Colts draft was with Grigson’s draft crew and picking for Pagano’s scheme. This past year, he had his own draft crew in place. He gets a pass for his first draft.

    Reality check

    8-0 at home, 5-3 on the Road ... 13-3 and a first round bye.
  10. The way the Chargers are being manhandled by the Pats makes me feel better about the Colts’ performance against the Chiefs. Weird, but true. lol

    The Day After Analysis........ 2 Cents from Deano

    The bold, spot on. I just don’t understand why you don’t keep the defense always guessing, with the run being a very real option to have to account for. Ergo, always keeping an RB in the formation.

    The Day After Analysis........ 2 Cents from Deano

    I also find it to be borderline laughable, these comments saying Leonard needs to beef up and drastically improve. He’s an All-Pro in his first year and very possibly going to be DROY, for goodness sakes. Trying to shine a light on so called Leonard short comings are, quite frankly, utterly ludicrous!

    The Day After Analysis........ 2 Cents from Deano

    I very much disagree that Rogers is a keeper. If he’s on the team next year, it will, imho, be because the Colts failed to adequately upgrade their WR crew. Also, I have seen nothing from him as a returner that makes me think you need to keep him.

    It all came down to this...

    Stopping them on 3rd down, but then giving them the 1st down due to penalty = take 7pts off the board for the Chiefs. Add back the Vinny misses and the Colts were right in the game, 17-17. As as bad as it seemed, this game was there for the taking. Missed opportunities and errors did the Colts in. Oh, plus good game by the Chiefs. 2019, Go Colts!
  15. Key Stat from Moving The Chains . heading into this weekend, of the 4 home teams remaining, the Chiefs had the 2nd best defense at home. Their defence was not nearly as bad as being hyped.
