  1. Juz a heads up ~ Lucky Indy fans can venture out Friday night for a live tweet-up with PK ... All for a good cause too . Event DetailsDo you have burning questions about the upcoming draft, your team, or other hot topics around the NFL? Do you love Fresh•Local•Beer? Then make plans to attend the 7th Annual NFL Combine Tweetup with Sports Illustrated columnist and the MMQB's Peter King. Peter and other members of football media will be available to chat and answer your questions in a casual setting. Pints of Sun King will be available for purchase. Tickets for the event are $10 and all pr
  2. Or better yet ...' Why didn't the NFL just confront the Pats and inform them that specific concerns have been raised ? Why not just tell them that "If you're breaking rules ...knock it off or suffer the consequences ." ( Just like what the NFL did to the Vikings when they were using sideline heaters to warm footballs during games ) Doesn't this seem to be what any normal operation would do ? Squash controversy b4 it happens...NOT LOOK FOR TROUBLE ? Conducting what appears to be a witch-hunt ( or a justifiable sting - depending on your allegencies ) seems to be the LAST THING Roge
  3. Actually there is precident for one teams draft picks being awarded to another - usually it involves some type of player tampering . If either team is ultimately found to have tampered with a football ... my guess is though highly doubtful -the league might take the drastic step of exchanging picks . At this point though I'm pretty sure we all know this will likely end without any conclusive findings ...just too muddled .
  4. That's an EZ one Hooshie MOON + JUPITER PATRIOTS 45 --------------------------- = ------------------------ CAR + HAIRBRUSH COLTS 7
  5. Don't be so naive ... The NFL didnt protect the Pats "last time " ...The NFL protected "The Shield " ( just like it always does ) When the Pats turned over ALL their tapes back in 2007 - they also turned over footage of OPPOSING teams video taping the Pats. Part of the arranged "plea -deal " was a gag order that BB has held strong to ( with the exception of a pre-SB presser where he became annoyed by a media pion's cloying , ill-informed questions and let down the curtain for a moment - stating the "secret sideline video taping " was done in front of 80k fans . I don't blame COLTS
  6. If it's ultimately discovered that the COLTS were tipped off that the Pats deflate their footballs and subsequently lowered the PSI of their INT ball ( to show a clearly under-inflated feel ) before turning it in to officials ... WHAT SHOULD THE PUNISHMENT BE ? A) Monetary fine B) Fine / Loss of 1st round pick C) Fine / Loss of 1st round pick / Suspensions for Coach and all involved . D) All of the above - plus Pats get Colts 1st rounder .
  7. If it's ultimately determined that the Pats took their footballs into an area and purposedly deflated them to their preferred specs ... WHAT SHOULD THE PUNISHMENT BE ? A) Monetary fine B) Fine / Loss of 1st round pick C) Fine / Loss of 1st round pick / Suspensions for Coach and all involved .
  8. Bingo Bango Bongo ....nail meet head . This episode in the peyton manning saga ...Mr. Super-Mod & Company ...is about MUN-NEE . Kept waiting for someone to chime in with the answer ...WTG baba . PS - I'm biased of course - but taking your foot off the greed -pedal as your career's idles down is one more reason why Brady > Manning .
  9. Grigson is slowly being exposed for what he is . Sadly , it'll be die-hard Colts fans that 'll be the last to know .
  10. U CALL THE SHOTS FOR THE COLTS ( daddy left you the team ) circa 2011 If you could choose between the following scenarios ... Which would you honestly choose ? A) 1) Legitamately allow Polian to build a competitive team ( resist the urge to throw the season and aquire the #1 pick ) 2) Treat the man who built Lucas Oil with the respect he deserves by honoring his contract and allowing him to finish his career as a Colt . 3) Win the franchises 2nd Indy SB in 2014 and currently be the reigning Champs . OR B ) 1) Suck for Luck / Kick #18 to the curb 2) Watch Denver build a te
  11. Not meant to be insulting ( just calling it as I honestly see it ...hard for me to sugarcoat what went down in 2011) The off topic point is duely noted tho ...Fair enough ...you're right -this GM thread is very solid ( and my post leads away from the focus ) Can't see any way to delete it ( I'll re-post it under it's own thread )
  12. Interesting takes by all...how about an even BIGGER hypothetical : U be the Colts GM - circa 2011 If you could choose between the following scenarios ... Which would you honestly choose ? A) 1) Legitamately continue to allow Polian to build the team ( resist urge to throw the season and aquire the #1 pick ) 2) Treat the man who built Lucas Oil with the respect he deserves by honoring his contract and allowing him to finish his career as a Colt . 3) Win the franchises 2nd Indy SB in 2014 and currently be the reigning Champs . OR B ) 1) Suck for Luck / Kick #18 to the curb 2
  13. I love T.Y.s Hilton's game ...if the Colts could accumilate 50 other players of his ability / desire they'd go 19 - 0 It's true he's an overall better wr than Edelman but to be fair Edelman's strength can't just be quantified by catching the football . He's an excellent route runner (reader ) ,great pick setter , awesome blocker , with good hands and big time / big game skills ( not to mention a trusty punt returner - actually the NFLs 3rd best all-time avg, ) My guess is if u asked 32 GMs to pick one it would be split . Same goes for the two teams wr corps... GMs would likely be split on thei
  14. There's a very good reason that "history is written by the victors " . 1960's = Packers 1970's = Steelers 1980's = 49ers 1990's = Cowboys 2000's - Present = Patriots If New England can piece together another SB win before this decade closes out , it would be very hard to argue against them being considered their run as the GOAT . ( Landry's Cowboys Dynasty deserves consideration-especially longivity-wise but Noll's Steelers squashed any GOAT aspirations )
  15. ...and yet u somehow accidentally clicked on thread titled "1 Pats fans opinion" ? For what its worth - if I wasnt born in Mass Id hate th Pats too ...just like I hated th Dolphins n Steelers in th 70's ...49ers n Cowboys in th 80's n 90's ... Colts in th 00's . Sports NEED a villain / top dog to knock down a peg or two ... n Belichick plays th part like Meryl F'in Streep on 'roids .
  16. Ok ...fine ...maybe so. But I think we both can agree that the Pats are no where near as egregious as the Broncos . NO ONE 's close to their league
  17. Like most Pats followers - it's not a stretch to say I am NOT a big fan of Bob Kravitz (disclosure - Im also not a spellcheck fan - so be warned ...I'm a habitual word mangler ) My guess is u Indy fans have ZERO idea what it's been like to be a Patriots fan over the last 7 years ...I don't believe there's been anything close to the very real Us Against The World roller coaster ride that we have been living with since an overzealous new commish over-reacted to a video camera PLACEMENT . Can you imagine if the Colts were docked their 1st rounder n labled cheats NOT for breaking a rule (still n
  18. For the record ... I agree that on paper NE's wr don't scare anyone but when they're clicking ( reading their cues and executing ) they can be pretty formidable . The Pats passing O is predicated on cerebral route running - not physical domination ( the main reason Gronk has redefined the TE position is his ability to master both ).
  19. Edelman = T.Y. Lafell = Hicks Amendola = Moncreif Where is this clear edge you speak of ?
