  1. Probably go to the Jags and be with Moncrief. Both will burn us for a long TD, they will miss extra point tries and beat us 12- 3

    Why Was Jim Caldwell Fired?

    Question probably should have been why was he hired. Never was a big fan of the Jim Caldwell experiment. Not saying slobber or snot has to be flailing from your face to be a good football coach, but his demeanor seems off canter compared to a lot of the more successful coach's in the NFL. So quiet and meek personality ... one that just doesn't feel right from my point of view. Who knows, maybe the players respected that quality in him. I don't remember any of the players speaking out against him or his ways or anything like that. But I dont know that we would ever really hear that. So regardless of his mannerisms or style of coaching, what exactly was the reasoning behind promoting him to HC? Tony's recommendation? I mean other than his time with the Colts as associate head coach or whatever his title was, exactly what was so intriguing about his resume? I was just really surprised that they transitioned from Tony right into Jim. Maybe they thought it would be seamless, train is still on the tracks and no changes needed type thing, Idk. Whatever, but it didn't work and I feel like his lack of aggressiveness was one of the reasons they lost the SB to the Saints.

    Celebration after Interception

    They already played high school and college ball ... they are pros, and I dont care what Brian Bilick and Dan Dakich say
  4. Yeah, I dont see it happening and it sounds a bit strange to me. He was highly regarded prior to the draft, even though some said he took too many plays off. I think there is little to no merit to the rumor. Why would they? More misinformation

    Colts Offense Not Sexy Right Now But...

    Even when we play well it is easy for some to forget we are rebuilding and it is impossible to address every single weakness. Even though it has been a while many people remember having Clark, Reggie, Marvin etc ... etc all at once so they are expecting it to be that way now. I believe it will be that way at some point, just going to take a couple more years. The staff did well with what we have by scheming and getting receivers open who otherwise would more than likely be covered in a less creative system (not mentioning OC names).

    Great overall game

    I agree .... and I love this defense too. Today was the surest tackling I remember seeing in many years. I hope both offense and defense continue to play well and grow every week...... although ... having a high pick and grabbing Bosa in the draft would be cool too. Overall a well schemed/ coached, played/ executed game, even with the time it took to re-adjust after the half and overcoming our sluggish return to the field. Much better than last week. Penalties were minimal and really never cost us much, and more importantly the concentration and ball protection we had this week was impressive. Leonard is going to be one special player in a year or two. Playing exceptionally well now as a rookie, but he has the potential to be a phenomenal player for us. In the end, everyone made a difference by playing their role and with the lack of mistakes the team effort exemplified what Chris Ballard has been preaching to us (and I assume them). It felt really good to watch a total team effort today get rewarded by doing just that.

    Castonzo and Autry Out vs Redskins

    Well .... someone will have to hold Kerrigan or he will be in Luck's face (blocking a pass or kissing him goodnight while he is on his back) the whole game. Might as well be him

    Some thoughts to share before Week One.....

    Not sure when I am going to be able to come over for a game yet ... hopefully it will happen though. Buca's oh yeah!! Overindulging after a win is like the best feeling in the world. But not on the good side more than I am feeling on the bad side today from the way Purdue played .... they laid enough eggs for the entire fan base to have breakfast tomorrow.

    Play To Win Or?

    Seriously? Cant believe anyone thinks that way. How can you, as a player coach affiliate or whatever, go out and bust your but every day and say to yourself .... I only want to get good enough to stay on the team, but we want to lose this year so we can get a higher draft pick. why even bother I don't get it .... not one bit. Its not the world I live in anyway. I want to be the best I can be at whatever I am doing .... even if that means I lose once in a while ... that makes me better.

    Sure is fun though .... then you go to the hotel (in my case) and another $200 and feel sick lying on the bed rubbing your stomach from eating/ drinking too much .... like I said .... sure is fun though.

    Did you see this ... just curious. I know he went to the SB and all, but this pretty much says what the guy is. Sometimes the team carries an average QB pretty far. Works both ways I guess.

    Pat McAffee Story in IndyStar

    I hear ya .... I remember watching that live .... kinda wish AL was a little more assertive like PM is/ was but he has his own style I suppose. And... wins are wins and that is what we all want. I prefer the "matter of fact" and outspoken leadership qualities or personalities more than what I have noticed from Andrew. That doesn't mean he does not posses those qualities, because I don't know for sure, from what I have seen however, he appears to be more relaxed and quiet than PM was. I inserted the video because this topic drew so much attention and, well Pat could be considered and * kicker by some so it seemed relative. I don't feel that way, I like Pat although I think he could have handled these situations differently - more professionally and responsibly. It feels like more of a "Pat" problem than a manager/ boss problem. Even though RG is likely a bigger Richard than most of us even know.

    The Colts Are The Mystery Team This Season

    I like it It would be very cool if we hang 40 on cinci and hold them to say 9 ... that would shut some people up huh?
