    ***  You're right.  the Colts shouldn't even play each week.  Forfeit all of the games and sit them all.  Even if they win the division, there's no chance at all to win in the playoffs.  So why bother.  Just don't play and get that first draft pick... Maybe even not play 2 years in a row... really get Luck healthy...   ***

    I remember many people mentioning the Colts would be bounced in the 1st game vs. the Chiefs and  top RB Larry Johnson in our SB season.  MJD and Fred Taylor had hung 375 rushing yards on us a few weeks earlier, and the Colts had the worst rush D in many moons.  What was Larry Johnson going to do to us?  Why even play?  Right?  I'm  glad the Colts showed up for every game, or Peyton might not have lifted that Lombardi trophy in Indy at all...

    I don't want nor expect the team to stop playing. They're pros. That said, are you seriously comparing this team to the likes of Manning, Harrison, Wayne, Freeny, Sanders, Mathis?

    He doesn't need to be.  I think that he signed a 4 year extension before last year, so after this coming year he has 2 more years, if not let go in 2017.


    If he is to get an extension, it should be at the conclusion of the 2018 season, for he would be heading into the final year of his contract in 2019.  Can't repeat that mistake of having a potentially lame duck coach.   


    Ergo, I think if the Colts make the playoffs this coming year, then he is "retained" for the following year, and it is thereafter that decision time comes.  For 2019 you either have to fire him or give him an extension.

    Sorry. Meant to ask if he comes back with a playoff appearance next season.

  3. We were one and done 7 times during the Manning era. Three ( 99,05,07) of those times after a first round bye. That's most disappointing to me more than anything else.


    The 05 and 07 losses were inexcusable. Got out coached and the other team was mentally sharper.

    I understand that.    Hey,  I want the defense too.    I've been banging the drum for three years for defense.


    But if the fan base is losing patience with all the success we've had,   then I'm flabbergasted....    What people view as struggling here and now,  other franchises would consider it great success....


    Posters here talking about a discontented fan base.    People not showing up for games.     Maybe not renewing their tickets.


    Fans here should think of themselves as lucky and fortunate.     It sure sounds like they don't.



    This isn't Green Bay, Pittsburgh, or Cleveland. Fans arent loyal.This is a bandwagon town. After one lousy season in 11, fans bailed and we were facing blackouts. It's harsh but true.
