    In your opinion. Perhaps we have different opinions of what a  franchise QB is. 

    Oh please don't go there , I'm sure your perspicacity and analytical prow less knows the difference from past definitions of what we deem franchise QB's of the past. We only hope that non projected  ones like Kurt Warner, Brady, ect.. and even Jacoby can become one , under the right system.

    Hey give him a break ,As long as  he was productive. Naturally he would continue to kick year after year . so this was his wake up call to retire, It happens . If only this would happen to Tom Brady, then the world as we  know it would be back in it's proper alignment. LoL.

  4. Hey if you have followed Adams carrier through the years , this stuff, does not happen to him! Look at his statistics. This is not what Adam does , Ever! This just means to me that Adam is slipping badly. Maybe if it was another kicker in his prime, it would not be a worry for concern.

    But to Adam, it's not like him, And that is a "Concern".

  5. NFL means , "Not FOR LONG " and some legends  need to except this. I know the love of the game keeps them coming back year after year, but it comes a time that mother nature says, It's time to go. You had a glorious Career. But it's time to let younger talent  try and make their mark.

  6. I love what Adam has meant for the Colts ,over the years , but it's time, much to my dismay , I have to think that Adam should step aside and give us a chance to find another , place kicker that hopefully can at least be close to the legacy, that Adam will leave. He is a legend!   and I wish him the best , but he needs to retire. The words , makes me feel bad but life moves on. I wish Adam the best but the future  is in question.

  7. It was a hard fought battle, but we still are a team to be reckoned with. We can still be a force without a true franchise QB. Ballard has gave us a team that is relevant. I would love the luxury of having a franchise QB, but we don't, but regardless of our situation , we still are building a great team around , what we hoped was  around a franchise QB. Regardless, we have the team that can be relevant. down the road, if we buy in, and believe in the process. Yes we would like to have the Franchise QB we enjoyed over the decades, but for now we need to pull for  us to develop over the season to be a good overall team.   Go Colts!

  8. Use to have Sunday Ticket back in the late 90's. My main service was Comcast. Bought a direct tv dish and receiver without having to have monthly service for 

    direct tv. Right before the season came around Direct tv would mail me an invoice for Sunday Ticket. I had the option of paying for the whole season in one payment, or installments over 3 months. Back then it was about 115.00 dollars for the whole season Every game every team. Even locally where the team was playing if there were a blackout they would show the game. It was great at first, back then. I had it for about ten years. Gradually every couple of years, the price per season would creep up, but still a bargain. Then when high def was converted from analog, the price sky rocketed,  almost 400 dollars a season, The last straw was a game that the Colts were playing in Houston, I live in South Carolina and they blackout the game here. because it was not sold out in Houston. When I called them and told them I got Sunday Ticket so I could watch every Colt game, they said that they could not control Black out games. The funny thing is  I called a local sports bar near me, and they said that they were seeing the Colt game at their bar so I asked them what satellite were they using, and they said Direct Tv Sunday Ticket. Between the price I was paying I felt duped. So I told them I was canceling my Sunday Ticket. Well when I did , I got a letter from them in the mail, asking me to come back and they would give the rest of the season for free, I said yea what about next year , It's going to be the same situation, and they had no reply to that. So.. We did the sports bar a couple of seasons, and that quickly got boring.

    So now if the Colts are not on locally, It's the old Red Zone and hope they score a lot, lol. Well the better they play the more games they will put on locally here.      

  9. The fact that even though we got off to a less than stellar start, It just reflex's the rust, we were shaking off. On the road against a playoff team, that we have always, had trouble with, even with Peyton & Luck.  The main fact, that we did not fold but, came back and got it into overtime showed a lot of Moxy.  I think it showed that this team is shaking off the shock of losing Luck and they are moving on. Give it some time, there is a lot more football to be played.

  10. I feel sorry for fans of teams who base their loyalty on only what players come and go on their teams. I have followed the Colts from the late 50's and Have experienced  many, many great and not so great players who have worn that Colts uniform. But over the years, through owners, coaches , QB's  and the rest of the position players , My loyalty has always been my love of that damn horseshoe. It will always be to me what this team represents, regardless , of who ends up wearing it. To me that is what a fan is suppose to be about.

    Bro losing a franchise Qb, on a team ready to win, is not a temporary setback.


    It derails this franchise for years to come.  Everything changes.

    Hey Philly won with Foles with a good team built for their franchise QB who was out for the season , the same can happen for us, Don't forget we have a good structure for anyone who calls himself an NFL QB, the foundation is there BRO!

    As a very young man Bert Jones was my hero,  a cruddy offensive line lead to his demise,  He held on to long and was a shadow of his self.  History repeats again in a strange way.

    Yes , wasn't it a rotator cuff that shortened Jones career, in the end?

    You get over it man, we get it dude, you support Luck and his decision! Great! A boatload of people don't! We have every right to vent in this moment. Sorry you don't agree with our sentiments, you don't have to quote every person and tell them you disagree with how they feel emotionally, in an obviously highly emotional time for the fans/fanbase. 

    Mob mentality before the facts Mortimore!

  14. Let's face it, it was more than a calf injury, It involved the bone , and extensive rehab injury, that Luck did not want to take off another season to rehab, an maybe even surgery. Can you blame the man after what he just went through, with his shoulder ? Put your self in his place.  If you have one once of compassion , give him a break. You know that this was not a decision taken lightly.
