  1. My Opinions Are 0% Fact


    Hey people out there who may or may not enjoy reading what I write! Just wanted you to know that I still plan on writing more but I am getting married this week. And while it might not seem like it I take a lot of time to research to try to know at least a little bit what I am talking about and I try to spend time while writing making sure I put out the best blog I can. Aaannnddd if I were to devote that amount of time to a blog about football...my future wife would murder me...then no one wins. So, I will be back to the delight of some, possible dismay of others, probable apathy of the rest.
  2. Hahaha! Yes. That my friend is what I think the kids call an accidental publish. Thanks for reading!
  3. I've never really understood the proverb, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me." I feel like whoever came up with that never had someone break up with them or ever worked in the service industry. I'm a words guy. Words are extremely important to me. They are the most powerful symbols on the planet. I would never claim that I am a master wordsmith, but I know that words are super powerful! Words can Sustain a relationship or wreck it beyond help. Words can end a war. Words can take a group of very different individuals and unite them under a single purpose and goal
  4. It's sort of a balance. If defenses were to get rid of the LB then the offense would react to that. The reason why people are playing with more DB heavy sets is because there are some amazing QBs playing today. If there is a crop of QBs that aren't so amazing teams' philosophies will change. It's a fluid situation.
  5. I think he retires from the game completely and keeps raking in money from investments and such. He is a great QB but and even greater brand.
  6. Unfortunately, they may use Landry as a FS again this year.... :\
  7. Just another reason why the Colts got SUPER lucky when they picked up this guy. What other team has a punter that is a legit fan favorite?
  8. I have never been to a Colts game at Lucas Oil Stadium (I attended last year's Titan's game in Tennessee). This is mainly due to the fact that I live in Chicago, home of the Bears, (Yes, Peyton, I suffer from Displaced Fan Syndrome). The second reason is I'm getting married, and justifying a ticket would put a...strain...on our budding (hopefully long lasting) relationship. This is only important because in part 1 of my search to find out what "Build The Monster," truly means I am going to be taking a look at people like me, the fans. When most people think of building the monster I feel like
  9. It's something that we have seen on T-shirts, in player, coach, and front office interviews, and all over forums. Build the Monster has become a sort of rallying cry for the Colts organization and fan base. It's catchy and it conjures up images of an unstoppable football juggernaut. When I first heard the slogan a wide smile spread across my face, but after the initial effect wore off I began to wonder what the slogan really meant and what it would take to actually build a monster. In this blog I want to explore that question from a logical, financial, personnel, fan base, and even rhetorical
  10. Also! I realize the irony that I referenced other teams being like drug dealers in the same comment where I tried to put Irsay's "...other issues..." aside. So....oops.
  11. It shouldn't be super surprising he at least looks at them a little bit. I think that the Colts understand on an organizational level that the Colts will never get their fair share of national sports talk time. They are sort of caught in that in between spot between teams that never get talk (Jaguars, Raiders) and the super sexy fun-time teams like the Patriots, Jets, and 49ers. So it seems to me that they try to be very intentional about their openness to fans. All other issues aside, Jim Irsay is an amazing owner in that respect, despite the amount of crap he takes for it. Many times NFL tea
  12. I think Werner could be a someone who shows quite a bit of improvement. I feel like Ryan Grigson spoke pretty candidly about him in a press conference at the end of the year when he basically said the kid needs to get bigger and stronger if he is going to contribute. I think that if he can start using his hands effectively, build a decent stable of rushing moves, and bulks up a bit he can be difficult to deal with. I like the kid's attitude. Him and Adongo both seem to have a very humble blue collar approach to the game, which seems to be what the personnel and coaching staffs prefer in their
  13. I think we will find that Jackson will be a bigger factor in the run game than some people think. I'll take a sure tackler with great awareness any day with great instincts any day. I that in the wake of him signing with the colts people have pulled up a few key plays where he lost his footing or overcommitted and deemed him bad against the run. I have yet to see a play, besides the occasional fluke which happens cause no one is perfect, where he made an egregious error against the run. I haven't gotten through all his snaps yet...but I am not seeing the terrible run play I keep reading about.
