  1. Let's pump the brakes a bit. I remember certain fans on here prior to 2017 saying the Colts would go at least 9-7 with Scott Tolzien as the starter.
  2. I would say the Children's Museum is a must for kids of that age. As far as I am aware, it is still the largest and best of it's kind in the nation. As mentioned above the NCAA Hall of Champions is cool if your kids are into sports at all. While not super big, the Indianapolis Zoo is still very nice as well. As far as restaurants go, if you like Steak you are in luck. St. Elmo's and Harry and Izzy's are two Indy staples, but they aren't cheap. 'The Slippery Noodle Inn' is a historic Pub/Restaurant right near the Stadium and is kind of the official tailgate hub of the Colts on gameday. It's one of the oldest restaurants in Indy and allegedly haunted. https://www.yelp.com/biz/slippery-noodle-inn-indianapolis Just Southeast of downtown in Fountain Square (about a 5 minute Uber ride from downtown) are two of my favorite restaurants. 'La Margarita' for Tacos and 'Kuma's Corner' for burgers. https://www.yelp.com/biz/la-margarita-indianapolis-2 https://www.yelp.com/biz/kumas-corner-indianapolis
  3. The throwing session Saturday looked like a guy that could be practicing at the very least in individual drills. With that said, we aren't privy to how sore he was after that.
  4. He's a child, logic is wasted on him.
  5. This! Watching the Colts is a hobby, not life or death. No need to get angry or depressed about complete strangers playing a kid's game.
  6. Yeah, that Manning guy was never hurt! Oh Wait!
  7. JMV said on his show yesterday that he was told the issue initially happened late last season and that he re-aggravated it in Spring Conditioning. When you think back to the end of last season, he didn't look the same the second half of the Houston playoff game and the entire KC game. Some people said it was his shoulder but I think if you look at it, he was not setting his feet and following through so I always thought it was just tired legs. The only thing I can think of is in the Houston game (and I can't remember if it was late first half or early second), Luck scrambles to escape Clowney and slides prior to the first down. To me it looked like an awkward slide where he got his knee brace caught in the turf and it kind looked like it hurt him.
  8. According to the info about this injury on the Googles.com, surgery is not recommended until 6-12 months after the injury until the bone growth is fully matured otherwise it can return. https://www.sportsmedtoday.com/myositis-ossificans-va-122.htm Seems like just a playing with pain issue as it says you can return to action with this ailment provided there are no deficiencies in strength or flexibility in the affected muscle. Strengthening sounds exactly like what Reich said Luck was focusing on.
  9. I wouldnt call Gordon great. He's only had one thousand yard season and before last year, never cracked four yards per carry. To me he's marginally better all around than Mack but has a much riskier injury history.
  10. They're both top 7 QB's. Wilson has accomplised more and is an electric scrambler but I believe Luck is a more skilled passer. In reality though it is not an apples to apples comparison. They were drafted into much different circumstances. Luck to a horrible roster and Wilson to one of the top rosters of the last decade. They don't even have remotely similar play styles. In fact I doubt either guy would succeed playing the other's style. They're both really good, they're just really good at completely different things and their offensive systems have been tailored accordingly. Also, the take that Luck can't beat elite QB's is a laughably bad one. First off, he has. 3-1 against Manning (including the playoffs and both years Denver went to the SB). 2-0 against Rogers. 1-0 against Wilson in the year Seattle won the SB. Etc., etc. So he hasnt beaten NE, few QB's have. Also, Luck is not required to play defense against said QB's.
  11. 1. Tight press coverage against an injured TY and the rest of the WR's that were nothing to brag about. 2. Calculated pressure on the weak links of the O-line in Glowinski and Smith. 3. Play action and misdirection that got the Colts' LB's moving in the wrong direction and consistently out of position. 4. The starting safeties were Geathers and JJ Wilcox/Odum. 5. Luck played poorly. All in all, KC scouted and exploited the Colts' weaknesses really well and the Colts didn't execute on their end. Recipe for a loss nearly all of the time.
  12. I was surprised that his blocking abilities were actually pretty darn good last year. If he adds more polished route running he will be a very valuable 3 down asset. I was upset that we didnt keep Hewitt, who I thought was an unsung hero last year but if Mo and Doyle can both be that complete tight end to compliment Ebron, that will be huge. Then perhaps Hale Hydra (or whatever the kid from Alabama's name is) can develop on the PS into that Hewitt h-back role.
  13. He underthrew that kid! His arm is toast! LOL.
  14. While we don't know what the breakdown of how he will be paid and his cap hits yet, if he's signed through 2023 at a total of 34 million and a max of 40 million that averages 6.8 to 8 million per year. Just saying that if they waited until he was up, he likely would have received more.
  15. Paying the guys now to avoid the market inflation of the future is my guess. 2 years from now he would probably command 10 million+ due to inflation and the market being re-set.
  16. Booo! Colts are wasting all of their precious cap space by extending all of their really good players instead of overrated and old outside FA's. Booo, Irsay is so cheap! Am I doing this right? Well done Colts and congrats Kenny.
  17. I wasn't just referring to steroids. Everything is instant today. Streaming, one day shipping, smart phones etc. People don't wait for anything anymore. Technically in my early 30's I still consider myself part of "today's generation". I will say though having been around gyms and sports organizations for most of my life I am noticing more steroid use in younger kids than ever before.
  18. Yep, and even though I saw him ride his bike to the Indy 500, I couldn't confirm he wasn't pedaling with his hands. LOL.
  19. Then lets go ahead and start the "Will Andrew Luck ever walk again" thread.
  20. But but... Irsay will never spend moneys! JK. Kinda sad for snappers that a little over a million a year makes you the highest paid at your position. I'd take it in a heartbeat though.
  21. Why are you upset? Nothing you can do about it. While not ideal for Luck to miss, OTA's and mini camp are just drills in shells, they can't even put pads on yet. As long as he's full go by training camp, that will be fine. That's when practice is actually translatable.
  22. After watching Kevin Durant blow out his achilles last night by coming back too soon, Luck can take all the time he needs.
  23. No worries. Yeah i don't think he lost all that weight intentionally, I think it was probably a lot of atrophy because of his condition. But I don't really know.
  24. Not sure, but I'm not condoning it's use and not even suggesting he needed them medically. I was just responding to you as to why he would take them to gain weight. No doctor is going to prescribe testosterone (steroids) unless his natural levels were at a dangerously low amount. So more than likely he just wanted to take a shortcut to getting his strength and mass back and got popped for it. Steroids and PED use are extremely prevalent nowadays. They're kind of the epidemic that no one talks about with athletes, hollywood actors and even just people at your local gyms. Today's generation wants instant results with less work.
