  1. I think it just solidifies most peoples opinion , that running backs, are not worth the money, if you just platoon decent ones in a rotation. The fact that these players can hold out to so call hold the team "hostage", is not what you want for your team. I hope that this doesn't becomes, like the NBA, a strictly players driven league, where the team no longer has any say so, in shaping their team.
  2. It's always possible , depending on injuries, but if we don't have major injuries, I see us moving forward , in the right direction this year. to be a player in the AFC championship.
  3. To be the best, you have to beat the best, so regardless of who we play, to get to our objective we have to win, one game at a time.
  4. Oh, buy the way, it was the most humiliating game to come back to high school the week after, to face my buddies, after I built up the Colts before the game. This was without a doubt, my worst week to face in High School. After that game , I learned to be humble, Believe me. LOL.
  5. So my question to you is money, draft pics, or trade possibilities aside, Would you want this player on the Colts? Even without knowing the results of his questionable past ? based on what you know ? Would this not raise any integrity, or concerns to have this man on your roster?
  6. I do have sour grapes living through that game in that era. 9 times out of 10 we should have dominated that game. Were we over confident leading up to that game as a 17 point favorite? Definitely, Since the preveniently Packers won Super Bowl 1 & 2. We viewed the AFL as a minor Football league, at the time. When we dominated the Browns in the NFL Championship game 34 to zero., We thought that we were already the pro football champions. At that time the so called Super Bowl was just a formality. Before that game we thought that we were already the Pro football champion, This was just a game to show our dominance. Just like back in the day when the NFL champion played the college all stars before pre season. Seems crazy now, that back in the day the pro football champs would play the college all stars, right? But back then, the best of college players would actually play in this game. now ? not so much.
  7. I am from South Carolina, And I saw a lot of his games, before he turned pro, Over the years, the thing that jumps out at me is, despite his talent, speed, and size, he has his moments, but seems to under achieve, and takes plays off through his college career. and also pro. When you add on his history of injuries, I would not give him a big contract.
  8. Did anyone see "A football Life" on Namath? As a fan I went through that era. An as a Colts fan, while it was going on I despised the man. His statistics, (if you are a stats guy) might not see him as a "GOAT" contender but, It reminded me of how much that man changed the culture of that era. His life had a lot of ups and downs, but, historically he was a major player in the evolution of the NFL. Sometimes it's not just about looking back on statistics but, seeing " What did this individual do to change the league. Sometimes I think that is also relevant . Any thoughts on this? Is their other Players, if you look back in history that you can think of also made an impact?
  9. We are finally building a team around Andrew, that he should have had, years ago. We were impatient, and thought that we could just start where we left off with Peyton.
  10. "Stuff Happens" (Stuff wasn't the word I really meant, LOL" Can I say the S**t word?
  11. If you base your integrity on what, "Did the DA have enough evidence to charge him," then I feel sorry for you. People beat the rap all the time on technicalities. Just OJ Simpson for example. He beat the rap as far as convicted for murder. He lost the civil suit, But he was exposed for what type of man he was, as his actions down the road spoke volumes to what kind of man he really was.
  12. I agree with NewColtsFan, I think everyone is over thinking and reading way too much from last year into this. We were coming back from the ashes and just ran out of gas. This was not a surprise , or it should not have been that we lost against a team that had an excellent year, and was elite, rested, at home, use to the weather, It doesn't take rocket science to understand why we under performed. My god man be happy we did as good as we did last year. I was very proud of what we accomplished last year considering where we were at before the season started, and as of the first 6 games we played.
  13. I think you mean call his own audibles instead of "freestyling". If he sees the need to change the play.
  14. Each game after going 1-5 was a virtual playoff game, son.
  15. I saw that, It's soo sad what happened. Devastating to work his young life toward a goal to play in the NFL and for that to happen, but life has a twisted way sometimes. My prayers and thoughts are to his family, for his full recovery, and hope he can find peace from this somehow, to know that his life is not over, he just has to seek a new direction in his young life.
  16. There was posts that were already hanging it up for the year and I replied it was to early to give up on the year because it was about getting better as a team with all of the changes and Luck's comeback as a QB. My point was if for some reason we did not win many of the remaining games, And we had a top 3 draft choice. There would have been discussion brought up about drafting a QB if people thought Luck was not showing improvement last season. We already have people complaining about his performance in the KC game. I'm not one of them. As he gets better and the team around him improves, then critic his performance. People seem to forget how long he was out, and his long rehab, he had to endure.
  17. Johnnie U from being drafted & cut by the Steelers, & their coach saying he thought that Unitas was not smart enough to be QB in the NFL. His leadership to winning , back to back championships, in 58 and 59 for the Colts. He put the NFL, as you enjoy it today on the map nationally. You as a Colts fan should be proud to have this as a legacy. Records are made to be broken, statistically, but to be a pioneer in the game from inception is something no other fan of any other team can ever take away from us. I know there were pro football before this, and I am a fan of history, of what was accomplished even before this event. But Nationally in America, The attraction to the NFL sky rocketed when this event was televised.
  18. Barring injuries, I like our chances moving forward, This year can solidify our return to contenders in the NFL.
  19. Well going as far as we did, after the 1-5 start, we had a few fans in here, bringing up the notion of tanking the season, that early. Thank god for the turn around. If not, and we ended up with a top 3 draft pick, there would be some who would be stumping to draft a QB, saying Luck is washed up. We still had a good year, all things considered, going into last season.
  20. So I guess hamburgers with poppy seed buns are probably on the NFL's banned list too. lol.
  21. It's the slow changing of the guard, as the new blood starts to trickle in, the media want to embrace them as, the future of the NFL. So when they have some success, naturally they want to sing their praises to the newer generation of fans. Look at NASCAR, drivers stuck around racing a lot longer years ago, but now it's all about investing in young new, and up and coming drivers. Your Gordon's & Earnhardt's, and now Johnson etc... are being weeded out. to make room for the newer generations to identify with.
  22. Durant was out about, before the NBA playoffs started, So not knowing the extent of his injury, other than the team report given, "A calf strain", each time it was brought up in the media, one wonders if they knew it was much more serious than the team let on. Being down 3-1 and seeming in a disarray, they seemed desperate. But being the competitor Durant is maybe he thought he was ready. But for him after being out so long instead of easing back in it, he looked like he tried to do too much too fast. We all know what happened to Luck when he tried to rehab ahead of schedule.
  23. There is no justification, as a defense for him if the video and dialog is true, to disgrace the wife & Child as a reason holds no water.
  24. Go Pats, I've haven't had any beef with you on this forum, But honestly, If you think that Irsay is the classless man that you think he is, Why on God's green earth, do you post in here? If god forbid, I moved to Boston, I would still only post in here, Because "I am a Colts Fan" If you are not, I don't see the point.
  25. I would say they both need each other, like comparing which of your parents, are more valuable.
