  1. Never...in my 40 years as a fan, have I seen an offseason like this one. Thanks for all the work you are doing folks. This is being compiled in a very convenient way for the fans.
  2. I officially loath fan whinership.

  3. If we still had talent....why did all of the players let go not named Manning either retire or fizzle out? We were getting it done on smoke and mirrors on many fronts (that is PM's incredible ability to elevate those around him). You are entitled to your feelings, I hope you get some closure in the future. As a fan since 70', I have not felt this good about a young defense with a horseshoe upside their head in like forever.
  4. 2012 Colts have built a special place in my heart....forever.

      Yes, we had way to many penalties in this game WH. Gotta fix that problem fellas. Keep working, Keep grinding, & keep improving...

      I saw some of their game against BYU. QB was impressive considering his lack of experience.

      My Rutgers Scarlet Knights are now 6-0. Bowl eligible, ranked 20th with a top defense (amusing in the first year after Schiano left for TB.)

      Of course their only opponent with a winning record plays division two. Leading the Big East isn't what it used to be. Any good team should shut their offense down cold.

      Rutgers....home of Jeff Saturday!

      Nah, unfortunately. I wish!

      Home of Colts Gary Brackett, Joe Lefeged, Eric Foster though. (And Ray Rice, Kenny Britt, Sean O'Hara, and the McCourty Brothers among others).

  10. Oregon State going into the top ten!

      Even the coach didn't see this coming.

  11. Then my Beavs take down the Wildcats on the road.

  12. Then we beat the Bruins in LA!!

  13. OS Beaver defense shuts Badgers down!

  16. Pagano's first hard cuts.....Head Coach reality sets in

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      Isn't that the truth! Some coaches/particularly Pags, create a family within a team. Losing that family member is tough...especially if he/ (she in all sports)has given the team all the had! Good luck to the many Colt players cut and injured as well as the 700+ players on the unemployment like come the 53 man limit cut.

      Pink slips never fun to receive or hand out either. Being at the other side of that management tables comes with it's own unique set of headaches, heartburn, & humility.

  17. Team is about to be defined. Cut downs looming...

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      3-5 more cuts today...if not injuries.....not a ton of interesting prospects on the waiver wire...

  18. Can't AFC South fans share opinions without hatred?

      The only game in the league...and a solid TEAM effort. Yes preseason...but fantastic effort.

  23. Any referee that has not made it to this level would view this opportunity as too great to pass up. I know I would. I hope that the labor deal is finalized soon, and those who step in in the meantime do an adequate job, and get the opportunity to live the dream...Miss Eastin included.
  24. In two days, the Indianapolis Colts take the field in their first game against real competition. Even though it is preseason, it is still the maiden event for what has become a completely revamped franchise. One would have to draw some very sketchy comparisons to find a team historically that has changed so many aspects in just one off-season. In review, this franchise lost it's franchise QB to injury and that loss was followed by poor team play, questionable coaching decisions, head scratching coordinator approaches, and overall lack of team confidence. What was a franchise that was feared, was now a team that was almost a lock to get the next years first pick before the season was half over. In short, it was like a plane running out of fuel and the descent gained moment as it plummeted towards the #32 spot in the league. No disrespect to those players who still fought their tail off all season. Far from it. They were simply not put into a position where they could succeed despite the circumstances. Fast forward to the present, we now stand on the edge of a new era. Gone are the gushing articles of praise, heaped weekly upon the Colts as result of their undeniable ability to win and win often. Twelve wins was always a possibility, tens wins was likely, and 8 wins was a given that bordered on ridiculousness when questioned. Gone is the media attention as a whole. What we have now are questions, but there is excitement around the questions. How will the team play? Will we run the football? Will we be tough on defense? Will our coach be animated? Will we do anything like we did before...or will we have a whole new identity? Just the notion that these questions, and many many more just like it are about to be answered, has the beginning of this new era busting with potential, possibilities, and hope. As we talk about what could happen, express concern about how long it might take to get there, and shamelessly heap vast expectations upon this new Colt era to help us get past our own disappointments, this writer hopes that we acknowledge the challenges that this franchise has had to emerge from, and move on. I see article after article about how Andrew Luck is expected to replace Mr. Manning, or how this team needs or wants to erase the ugliness of the past season. I could not disagree more. Like a reawakening of the soul.....player, coach, owner, and fan alike have had their mental framework reset about who the Colts are. The choice belongs to each and every one of us. Tabula Rasa. Blank slate. We can see the success of the past as a reminder of what we no longer have. We can see any failure or challenge that the team faces this season as an example of what this team no longer is. We can also view those challenges and failures through a filter of excitement, hope, and fierce pride, as one who has emerged from the fire. This team, this year, can be the start of the best Colt era ever.....and it can exist, without diminishing or lessening a single accomplishment that any Colt player or team has given their fans in the past. And it can exist without the responsibility of replacing or erasing anything from the past. They are quite simply, two different eras. Bon voyage, Colts. May the journey be a memorable one.
