  1. I'm not blown away, but I wasn't expecting to be.
  2. A few quick unsolicited thoughts, since I'm not a regular in this thread. It won't be nice, but I won't get too wordy about it. If this team doesn't get a whole lot more competitive and quick (or get over the heartbreak), doing some roster churning at the deadline might be a thing that happens. I don't think anyone thought this team was bad sans Vic and it is (they some how went 8-4 earlier). They're unwatchable now- very much a bad team in the middle of an NBA regular season. If they fell out of the playoffs and into the lottery, that might be for the best, but as it stands it's looking increasingly likely that they're a 7/8 seed that'll get swept.

    Should the Colts extend Ebron?

    I wouldn't want to overpay. It's hard not to weigh those routine plays where he drops it against some amazing TD grabs. I think Ballard will wait on seeing more before he rounds out a number in his head that's right. It's not hard to see someone else wanting to give him a big contract.

    Colts extend RG Mark Glowinski [Merge]

    I don't mind it. He's the one piece I kind of thought was more iffy than the other to be honest, but the unit as a whole can maintain some continuity and improve their collective play, that's cool too.
  5. His passes didn't look great in the cold two weeks ago or the rain yesterday (after a year of wondering if he'd play again I still pay attention to that). Everyone will make of it what they want and it certainly isn't worth freaking out about especially right now, but I see some room for improvement as a consistent passer. When he's moving, his passes look much stronger for one.

    Peyton Manning had the power

    Caldwell wasn't a bad coach, that get's over looked quite often. Peyton could have won with Jim, he won with Gary Kubiak and what's Kub's calling card as a coach?

    PFF's Top 5 Graded Colts 2018 - Offense

    If Luck was playing well on top of that and they committed to the run game, and, and, and.. Note the team started winning when AC showed up. He did play well and doesn't get much credit for it from the media/fans.

    Is Brady the luckiest qb ever ?

    I have to say, if he's not on steroids/performance enhancers, he's one of a small handful of pro athlete in the modern era to maintain his game for so long and most of his peers did use something... I say he's got a fair portion of "lucky" to his story, though it's not all that (there's cheating too!), but seriously he's very good. The Seahawks should have ran the ball. The Falcons blowing a major lead was their own fault, they would have won if they'd have gotten a first down in the forth quarter. The Tuck Rule game.(oh yeah, the coin flip yesterday) I'm sure I'm missing some, but I'm fine forgetting some of it. Won't miss em when their gone and I won't let the goofy media tell me other wise.

    Is Brady the luckiest qb ever ?

    I hate the Pat's enough for 10 people, but that game yesterday in KC was officiated well enough (the other game is another story). I'm not going to go round and round over this point about the NFL being rigged, but the NFL is going to have a real problem if this is how a good portion of people feel.
  10. Pff, clearly who ever gave Ballard this award didn't see the thread stating that he wasn't impressive.
  11. I'd like to see so many people bow out that it's guys like Brock Osweiller showing up. Funnier than the bad game.

    Colts want Adam Vinatieri back (Update) (Merge)

    I don't think people realize how many Cody Parky's there are right now out there. We should want AV back, despite the poor game and his age. He was very good this year, even kicking through a groin injury (use your imagination). I think he can still do it and to be honest, I think he's got the craft down, where as long as he's mentally into it, he's going to be able to do it- within a degree of reason of course, he's clearly closer to the end than not.

    Luck did not play well comments are simply false

    Conversely, I'd say that's one of the worst games I've seen from him as a pro. He did not play well and it's plain as day- my alternate thread title. The offense scored 6 points. That's not a bad starting point for making the case. Lot's of dropped INT's. Lot's of shaky looking balls. Lot's of batted passes. The WR's weren't great either, but they're not throwing the thing at their own feet. Then on the other side of the field, the other guy didn't have any issue with managing the elements or keeping the ball secure. The eye test can tell ya what you need to know about that game and Luck's performance. It was a pretty low floor performance, despite his high ceiling and very good average. Too bad the squad's issues were exposed in full during that game-I'm not saying it's all 100% on him, but I've seen Luck overcome less than ideal protection and mediocre receiving talent behind T.Y before. It wasn't happening last Saturday.

    Some Day After Thoughts to Share.....

    I agree with this, but the D actually locked them up for a few drives at a point where they wanted to break the Colts back and couldn't. Penalties and Kenny Moore's blitz's stopped them a few times IIRC. If the offense had anything, at all they could have been with-in a score and that's way closer than the on the field action would have lead anyone to guess was even possible. I'll say it one more time (and move on soon-ish) I'm really surprised that a good portion of what decided that game came down to Luck playing so poorly. The rest of it's just details if he can't complete passes. That Chiefs D was no joke, hope they give some of that to Tom.
