  1. It’s what some people enjoy, looking for anything to tear another down. If we all the capabilities or care to go searching for an ignorant comment we’ve made, most everyone has a skeleton to hide. Everyone has made a comment or statement they wouldn’t want out in public. This is a small droplet in the sea of water we live in.
  2. Yeah I watched the game mostly and heard that line. PM is pretty funny. Even TB was pretty humanized during the match. It just comes so much more natural to PM than it does for Brady. I’m not a big golf fan but that was worth the watch yesterday. Blew away watching nascar later on. The circle cars are just puke!
  3. I think by adding Buckner to the Dline, you’ve upgraded each other mans talents as well along the line, he was that good. I think with Buckner and Stewart pushing them middle back, it’s going to create enough gaps for lb’ers to shoot and for the ends to reach the edges as the QB won’t be able to take 7 steps back and survey the field most every snap. Lewis May even show why he was drafted this year if he has increased his raw production and is healthy. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been saying dump JB and his remaining cap hit and pick up Clowney for a year or even Griffin. That money would be bett
  4. Yeah, I knew where you were coming from. There is going to be a group that says we won but 25 million for 175 is stupid to pay a guy for that production while not being able to see the whole concept and ability. Running it effectively is waaaay safer than throwing it 20 yards downfield plus it allows your defense to rest and stay off the field. I thought we were going to be getting that style game from JB last year in just managing the game to long, drives with clock controlling game plans but he couldn’t make the defense respect his passing abilities. At least Rivers has that game built in to
  5. I see us using the short passing game like the run but also being able to use the run off that as well. What will be critical is for Rivers to be able to hit those intermediate strikes and get those chunk plays to force DC’s to loosen up their defense and not play so tight near the Los as they were able to do with JB. I’m very curious to see if we have truly acquired a FB to incorporate big with the offense this year or if it’s going to be just a goal line/short yard offense package. id love to see a package where we come out with TY, Paris/Pittman and Hines at the slot with both bac
  6. I’d tend to agree with your thinking here. We don’t need Rivers to throw for 300 a game but what we need to have, is a QB with the threat of doing so if needed and not just when we are 30 points behind in catch up mode with prevent defenses. What will set Rivers apart from JB is hopefully his ability to read and process what defenses are setting up for against us. If we can successfully screen play, run and the occasional chunk play, I would welcome a 200 yard performance in the air with 150 on the ground and 24 points avg/game. Having a QB who can scan and process the field quickly and ge
  7. Glad you are well @Stephen!! 13 wins will be real tough, not impossible but dang tough. I’d be more realistic thinking a 11-5 record would be more like it. The team has enough question marks at the wr and the TE spots to warrant that I think. On paper, we look as good as the top 5-7 teams in the league but putting it on the field, nobody, including CB and FR have no idea because nobody has seen them work together yet. i do like @csmopar and his enthusiastic prediction though lol.
  8. I tend to think Kelly didn’t play as part of a test From CB and FR, of his will and his composure. He passed that as we haven’t heard a peep of how upset or how he deserved anything, I give him credit for that. Now saying that, it’s likely just as possible they see no shot as a future player for the team. The only part that keeps me confused on him is that the team paid good money for him to stay on the PS last season, brought him to the 53 and then when they could have cut him as just another guy, they kept him even though they needed other spots because of injuries. Now why did they hold ont
  9. I’d agree here with this. Nothing during camp should be given. If JB comes in and plays lights out and CK and JE play mediocre, JB should be retained, CK cut and try to PS him and develop Eason as best you can. If CK,JE and JB are all on par in preseason, you move on from JB and don’t look back. I still say JB and his salary is best placed in anyone else that is part of the teams future and JB isn’t in the future here.
  10. I think that Kelly is such an unknown to most of the fan base that it’s hard to have a consistent view of him. For me, I’ve really liked what little we’ve seen of him, his accomplishments in his short college time is enough to keep you intrigued, him staying out of trouble all this time since signing is a very positive sign (btw, Ryan Leaf is back in the headlines again for domestic abuse) and I still just have a tough time believing that the colts are going to keep JB on the roster and keep a total cap for the QB spot at such a high number. I could absolutely see the team having some feeling
  11. A bust no, a rash of freak injuries, for sure. If he had a hammy injury 2-3 times already, I would be concerned. A hernia, and 2 different fractures in different spots don't concern me. Wr's who have lower body muscle injuries or joint issues would worry me a lot more. These injuries were out of his history character so I think we can wipe last year clean and move forward to see what receiver skills he has improved upon with study and lots of time.
  12. More drivel from you. You are consistent if nothing else
  13. If we cut JB tomorrow, who signs him and how much would you expect his contract becomes? If we do cut him, he saves us 8.8 million, correct? That’s a lot for a guy we don’t expect, nor want to see, get into the field. If JB is on the field, we are either up by 30 with minutes to play or our season is screwed because JB has had to replace an injured Rivers.
  14. Yeah we are pretty close on this post as well. I am not going be complaining that we kept him during the season. If we decide to keep him, we do, it’s not the worse decision a team could make. thanks for the respectful debate. Rarely happens here anymore. Take it easy.
  15. I just am one who has very little faith in JB as our back up QB to win us any games and for an additional 8.8 million to boot, I’d rather just acknowledge that the new era of either Kelly or Eason is upon us. Outside of JB being able to take a hit and harder to bring down from the pocket, everything else with JB is poor to barely avg imho. I understand the number is all relative at this point and that he has knowledge of the system. Still makes me no difference as we also have knowledge of JB not being very good with having knowledge of the system. I would definitely rather put that 8
  16. Idk, If we are gambling by taking a 38 year old QB, one that has no injury history or missing games, I say we continue the gamble. We use Kelly and Eason as back ups and let the chips fall where they may. I’d rather use that 8 million and add a little to acquire Clowney or something like that. Maybe even use that space to renew our Center. Better uses than having it in a back up QB that has no future here imho.
  17. I was bored and watched the AFC colts/pats game on YouTube. Some things I took from that game 1. Reche Caldwell, thank god for that pair of hands. His 2 wide open easy drops cost the pats that game. 2. we won with Aaron Moorehead playing wide receiver. I forgot he played in that game. 3. Harrison wasn’t very solid in that game 4. Our oline was breaking our holes for the run game but man did they allow a lot of pressure and hits on Manning. 5. I’m astonished at how that team beat the Pats with that defense. It looked pretty ugly at times. A
  18. Unappreciated? I’d say over valued. He is being paid like a starter and when 31 of the 32 teams would have already cut him by now, for some reason, CB refuses to let him leave. He is being paid about 3-4 times what the next back up is making and 10X what most back ups are making. That’s not unappreciated to me. I call it cap/cash madness. we tried him, we paid him well for that attempt. He failed bad enough that the team went out and paid a 38 y/o 25 million and drafted a potential replacement QB this year. It’s time to let his arm go somewhere else.
  19. I’d be willing to take that bet. I don’t think there is any way he is suited for the left side. I may end up being wrong but if I’m wagering a beverage on it, I’d feel good about getting a free drink
  20. I’d agree with that. Once we were catching up, the fan base definitely came back to life in full fashion. That Pats game was the pinnacle of our Indy team and meant a ton to the success and mainstay to relevance to Indy football. God that game was heart wrenching and exhilarating at the same time. Loved it!! Yeah, I wasn’t able to talk normal for a bit either. I miss that stuff
  21. I was a season ticket holder since 1996 season and gave them up 2 seasons ago. I’d disagree on that pats game not being the loudest game ever played but each of us have different opinions on that and it’s pretty subjective so we can just call it both games were very loud. Today’s fans are pretty watered down. although a funny story. In the dome, before Manning made it popular to attend, we were on the probably 10-20 yard lines in the bottom bowl. Always plenty of empty seats around us every game, I mean like 10-15 empty seats in between people. I always am up screaming for the defens
  22. No game in the dome has ever been louder than that pats game in our Super Bowl chase year. I was unable to hear myself screaming it was so loud. Waaaaay awesome!! I would welcome a crowd noise being pumped in during home games that are equal to what normal games sound like. Some tech person would have figure that out, set a decibel range for the teams and adjust it accordingly during the games. At LOS, fans tend to be quiet on first down, start to stir on 2nd down and then come to life early in the games or if the score is in reach. As the games go along, LOS tends to die off unless
  23. I think the difference between Doyle and Ebron is, EE was blessed with god given talents where as Doyle was more blessed with workmanship like qualities. EE has taken his job and talent for granted and just expects he will win all matchups, doesn’t need to work on his craft to be the greatest at his position , ala Peyton Manning style or the creeper that is now in Tampa Bay LoL. Doyle wants to be the beat at his craft but doesn’t have the talent to be that, he does have the will and drive to keep working at 100% ala a Manning/Brady to be the best player he possibly can be. He is getting every
  24. He had an avg year in the terms of a wr in the nfl, he maybe stood out for a guy who hasn’t had much attention in his 4 years on the team. I’d hardly call what Zach did as eye popping for the league, he just made nice showings for this team, this season. I’ll give Zach the credit he deserves for stepping his game up and making the catches he could but again, I stand behind the statement that JB did no favors for this team with his play.
  25. To be quite fair, JB didn’t make anyone look good last year throwing them the ball.
