  1. I grew up in the Bronx NY and saw the greatest game ever played. I was 10 and the only member in the family rooting for Johnny U. & the Colts. He was my boyhood hero and I treasure his autographed photo I got before he passed. Could barely hold the pen.
  2. It only means on any given Sunday, any team can win. 10-6 Giants beat the 18-0 Patriots in SB.
  3. I know he came in with a great deal of fanfare, but has Chris Ballard been a significant upgrade from Grigson? Just asking.
  4. I think JB will be a serviceable if not above average replacement. I also think that Frank Reich will get as much out of him as can be expected. My concern is the defense. It’s interesting that the loss of Luck will put more strain on the defense than the offense.
  5. I have a suggestion for Reich and staff. Instead of reviewing film of this game, look at film of Patriots.
  6. You can get all the horses (pun intended), but unless they can be effective in a system that leverages their skills, the search for a legit D will continue. Sorry, with few exceptions Pats & Bellichik have consistently capitalized on the talent they draft or acquire. They draft and acquire players who fit their schemes, and that makes them better players.
  7. The problem with the defense goes back further than Pagano. It feels just like the Peyton Manning years when it fell on the offense to cover the deficiencies of the defense. The reason we won the Super Bowl was our defense played way over their heads. The next year they settled into a run-of-the-mill defense and all those Peyton Manning years were wasted, with only one Super Bowl win to show. It’s starting to feel the same way with Luck. How many teams can boast getting two such quality quarterbacks back to back? It would be criminal to look back over 21 plus years and have one SB win with
  8. I admire your optimism, I just don't share it. Luck isn't anything close to what he once was, and if you recall, everyone, and I mean everyone including media, coach, GM and owner pinned their hope for success in 2018-19 on Luck's return. Defense has no pass rush, was shredded again by a rookie QB with no more than average receivers, and our receivers and backs cannot catch. Sorry, I was, am and always will be a Colts fan, I just also need to be a realist.
  9. Sorry but consistently "shooting yourself in the foot" is a euphemism for a bad football team with too many holes to fill. Good teams don't shoot themselves in the foot, they shoot the other team's foot.
