  1. GREAT blog! And I stress the "great." Truly informative for those that don't know what a 3/4 hybrid defense entails. I think our defense will be exciting to watch this year and I'm very anxious to see how well Mathis and Freeney adjust to their new roles. With their talent, I see them having no problem!
  2. I was at that game and I too was heartbroken to see Polian make the decision to pull the starters. (Additionally heartbroken because we got in a wreck on the drive home). Not every NFL fan can remember who won the Super Bowl every year, but 99% of fans can tell you the 1972 Dolphins were the only team to go undefeated EVER. That's one of the records that should always try to be reached.
  3. CLARIFICATION: Jim (not Robert) is the owner of the team. Robert passed away in the '90s. Robert was the one who made the decision to move the team to Indy.
  4. Agree with you. I'd have a lot more respect for these people bashing the Colts if they'd just come out and say "I am a Peyton Manning fan." Unfortunately, it's these "fans" that give the rest of us a bad rap. I became a fan when we acquired Dickerson (I was 5) and will continue to be a fan.
  5. Fantastic post. Wish other fans would think with this logic instead of bashing our team and organization. Some of these statements "fans" are making are totally disrespectful to the rest of the Colts players. We'll just hold on tight and get ready for our rise back to greatness, even if that does mean we may have to wait a few years. I for one am excited and anxious as to what the future holds for our team!
  6. What can I say, I'm a geek with numbers and a Colts fanatic
  7. So I see my blog has gotten a lot of talk going on Facebook. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to keep Wayne and Manning for the obvious reasons, but Offensive stars seem to get more of the spotlight shed on them so fans are more aware of their contributions to the team. I am just the type of football fan that sees the team as a whole and who contributes the most in their repsective positions and just wanted to point out some things that perhaps people haven't realized with Robert Mathis. He really is a vital part of our defense and I think without him Freeney isn't as effective as usual.

    And yes, Aaron Bailey should have held on to the ball!
  9. As many Colts fans are aware of, Robert Mathis just concluded his final year of his current contract with our beloved team. There has been support via Twitter, Facebook and message boards from fans wanting the Colts Organization to re-sign Mathis and give him a new, worthy contract. Let me break this down for you, our team NEEDS Robert Mathis. Our fans WANT Robert Mathis back. Robert Mathis more than deserves to stay in Indianapolis. Mathis was selected 138th overall in the NFL Draft, and the 18th overall Defensive End. Of those 17 DE’s taken ahead of Mathis, how does he measure up? We’ll ju
  10. With the upcoming draft, and the Colts having the #1 overall pick one thing comes to mind...the battle of the QB. The year was 1968, the Colts still in Baltimore and riding high on the shoulders of All-Star, MVP QB Johnny Unitas. This was the man who brought us back in the "Greatest Game Ever Played", our knight in shining armor. Cut to the final preseason game, and Unitas goes down suffering from an injury to his elbow. Not known at the time, Unitas would not ever be the same player again. The Colts use their backup QB, Earl Morrall, to finish up the season and he takes the team on a 13-1 rid
  11. I just think we can get so much more if we trade the pick away. Work on all areas, not just QB
  12. If I were the Colts GM, obviously I'd start be re-signing Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis. Wayne is still an able-bodied receiver (even though considered "old" by some) and still has the tenacity you see from young players. His ability to run routes, shake defenders, and be a playmaker is amazing. I'd hate to see us lose him like we did Harrison. As for Mathis, well I just don't think you get as great of numbers from Dwight Freeney unless you have Mathis to compliment him. Mathis equalizes the pressure from the other side so that QBs don't have any way out when being flushed out of the pocket.
  13. If CPearison45 were GM, he'd If I were the Colts GM, he's start by re-signing Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis.
