    Colts single game tickets

    No guarantees with this season...but in the past I have been able to find tickets on the secondary market for much cheaper (provided it wasn't a premium game)...and that included the last season Luck played. Not trying to dissuade anyone from buying tix now...just something to keep in mind depending on what game/s you are looking at.

    Turf being replaced at Lucas Oil Stadium

    Ravens have natural grass...at least the stadium.

    Turf being replaced at Lucas Oil Stadium

    Thanks...I didn’t know that. Plus the roof isn’t translucent or transparent (like newer stadiums that are being built)...so I would imagine sun would be an issue. Hopefully, what ever they are installing is the next best thing.

    Colts WR Deon Cain working out with NFL Legend

    Probably cause Randy was willing to cover his expenses...and Luck wouldn't.

    Turf being replaced at Lucas Oil Stadium

    I am all for speed. But to be fair, the Saints' defense in 2009 integrated a lot of 3-4.

    Colts Madden 19 Ratings

    NHL could be the best sports game on the market (hockey gameplay is second to none IMO)...but they just don't seem willing to improve the overall game enough.

    Turf being replaced at Lucas Oil Stadium

    They recently signed on with some company from Cincinnati to have new turf installed at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center. But this says Lucas Oil Stadium. Maybe they are having the same company do the stadium as well. I wish they would switch to natural grass...or whatever the closest thing possible to it...especially with the recent investments on the OL. Even though there is likely no way to prove that the turf at Lucas Oil Stadium has caused more injuries...I just don't understand why they even take the chance. Every team that has natural grass...their players love it. Maybe Ballard can talk some sense into Irsay. He came from KC, who not only plays its home games on natural grass, but also had a player/s publicly criticize the turf at Lucas Oil Stadium. Natural grass (or whatever they could install there) is obviously much more expensive...but I think they can afford it...especially considering what they have saved on the roster this season.

    Colts Contest for Fans

    Below is probably my favorite...even though its importance pales in comparison to other moments. I was at this game, out of my mind at this point...and they had just gotten the ball back. After a 3rd down completion to Fleener...I was hoping they would eat the clock and keeping moving the ball, but then this happened. You can hear the noise from the original broadcast...but it doesn't do it justice..the place was electric when that happened.

    Few Colts heading to Stanford University

    This thread got goofy very fast.

    Quenton Nelson is the highest rookie.....

    Not that Madden ratings mean anything...but that seems a bit weak. Rated relative to other Gs...you would think would have him rated higher than 83...especially considering he is the best G prospect in a very long time. For reference, Warmack had an 84 OVR and Cooper had an 83 OVR in Madden 25 (though I am not sure if that was launch ratings or final updated ratings after the season). I would just think that Nelson would be the outlier for rookie ratings at his position...like RG3 was at QB.

    5 Reasons why the Colts will make 2018 Post-Season

    I don't know...the NL seems pretty wide open...but there are several teams that could make it. But even if they can make the postseason, they ain't beating the Cubs. /sarcasm MLB has the postseason...NFL has the playoffs.

    The Quenton Nelson Story you've wanted......

    True...I do think Kamara was very underrated...even in a deep RB class. Playing for NO certainly didn't hurt...but he forced the issue (players play). But maybe Hines was underrated as well. I can say one thing for sure...Hines will look better in this year's offense than he would have last year.

    The Quenton Nelson Story you've wanted......

    Man...if Hines is a poor man's version of Kamara...then Ballard hit a HR. But even a poor man's version of Kamara is lofty expectations for a 4th round rookie.

    Are the Great Illustrated Classics still a thing?

    Not only that...but UDFAs making NFL rosters out of their first TC is very rare...even with a team that has open spots like the Colts.
