    I used to get Colts every Sunday in Kentucky during the Manning years. After he left, I was highly confused why games weren’t on anymore. 

    It's sad really.  Get fans feeling comfortable then pull the rug out......how do you watch/listen now?

    Bears vs Giants is on CBS, most of IL is getting DET vs GB on Fox which is channel Colts are on, I live in central part of state so that is what we are stuck with.



    There is also Sunday Ticket for 99.96 a year if you know a Student. I get it each year now, with my sister's info

    Tomato, tom-ah-to.  Thanks for the correction tho, that is a slightly more interesting matchup imo.


    I'm in central il too.  We used to get colts games all the time (or it felt that way anyway) during the Manning era. 


    I'll probably just buy a service, feels like the best way to get the content I desire.  I'll wait til we get a win tho.  If last Sunday's D becomes a trend watching 2 minute recaps and highlights online may be all my heart can handle.

    GamePass is only worth it if you don't mind watching after the games are completed. I *believe* once the last early game finishes that block of games becomes available, same for the late game slate.


    My phone blows up with alerts and when I know the result I don't watch with the same intensity and don't enjoy it nearly as much, so for me that doesn't work. If you're ok with it though, it's a pretty great deal at $99 for the season

    Those are the same reservations I have.  If I trusted myself to go dark until after the game it'd be a no brainer.  It's hard to even find a radio broadcast that isnt blacked out in my area.


    Thanks for the response,  I think this is gonna be a good year in spite of last week.  I'll have to weigh the options, hundred bones is pretty cheap tho.....if Colts TCB Sunday I'll get it, lol.

  4. I've heard the defensive scheme described as simple, easy to learn, designed to let players play fast, etc. 


    Is it possible that the way Eberflus coaches just isn't challenging enough mentally to keep players engaged and motivated?  They may just be checked out.  They certainly looked like it in critical moments on Sunday.  


    2 historically bad performances in two years.  Our talent on the field is much better than that.


    Flus sounds like a guy without answers, like coach Pagano at the end.  The fear hasn't entered Matt's eyes yet but the rhetoric is disturbingly similar.


    Just my opinion (obviously) and not meant to read as an overreaction or indictment of our players or FO.  Just crossed my mind after watching Eberflus' presser this week.

  5. It's not really about panic, for me it's about wanting what is probably my last season to be a successful one.  I had to fight tooth and nail to get here and after today, my logical mind agrees with you, no big deal, but the outcome is a huge disappointment.....My personal reality very likely doesnt contain a '21 season, much less an "Eason era".


    I bought the preseason hype cuz I wanted to, maybe even needed to, and we dropped the opener to the jags.....lol, smh.  Could  still be a great year, and football is a luxury not a necessity, but dang...........


    I'll keep going,  as I have the last 2 years,   just would love to watch us make a run one more time!  Not the flacid drip of a performance we witnessed today, and frankly all of last year.  I know It's a me problem, probably one of priortization, but I love my colts.  what can I say?


    I have faith in this staff and this team.  One game dropped is not a season ended.  Just hoped for more, especially opening against the glitter kitties.  Me-owch!  0-1

  6. This game was a huge disappointment.  Loss to arguably the least talented NFL franchise.  2 (actually 3) int by our veteran qb. Poor execution on critical downs.  Brissett in the red zone, because why?....... team leader?.  Missed field goal.  Passive, ineffective D......classic colts opener.  Hopefully they'll get serious next week.  This week should have been a cake walk.  Its not over by any means but damn.....

  7. Luck was rad, there's no scenario in which the 2020 colts would not be better with a healthy, motivated, Andrew Luck.  I miss the dude being in the league, and remain an Andrew Luck fan.


    But in the immortal words of Wessling.......he gone....


    We are winning it all this year though.  Rest assured, grumpy * Phillip Rivers will do what the even grumpier Jay Cutler never could, solidify his legacy.  This is the year to watch!

  8. There are always big "ifs".  They're primarily the same for every team in the top half of their conference, and I think the colts are close to being a top 5-8 AFC squad.


    If we stay healthy, if we get hot at the right time, if we get home field advantage, if Rivers can hold his own (maybe steal a couple wins), if our young players make the leap......


    If those things fall into place,  I like the colts chances of winning the division (no cake walk), so naturally I believe they have a chance to compete for a superbowl.


    Ultimately it comes down to executing closer to the ceiling than the floor,  it's why they play the games.


  9. Colts are already in a situation where they're going to have to cut one or two talented individuals that they seem to be "high" on.  Bringing another talented QB in, presumably to make a political statement, only to ultimately have him ride the pine.........seems like the wrong move.


    Not sure Kap really wants to play either.  After the 2019 workout shenanigans I'd (if I were colts front office) need to be convinced of that first.  His actions dont exactly speak to a man desperate to get back in the league. 


    We've already had a big name coach leave us at the altar,  and our superbowl aspirations evaporate when the face of the franchise pulled the pin.  Another high profile signing, who is probably (and rightly) more interested in his social justice work than colts football, to fill a third string position.......nah.  doesnt add up.


    If he want to get back in the league his position should match his profile.  Starter or in competition to be the starter.  Not buried in an already crowded roster.

    It’s not going to be up to the nfl if there is fans. It’s going to be up to the governors. But what happens if one stare says fans and another won’t allow it. Will the nfl then say no fans because of a advantage or could those teams go play in another state. A lot of these states have already said they expect fans back at sporting events by mid summer.

    I live in Illinois and given our governors 5 phase plan, it's highly unlikely the state, especially Chicago, is "open" for the start of the regular season.


    Each phase (we're currently in phase two of five) have certain benchmarks that if unmet, extend that phase for 28 days.


    I think the best case scenario would involve the bears playing in Champaign (downstate) like they did during the soldier field rebuild ('02?).  Or maybe even in another state.  I just dont see Chicago Illinois playing ball by Sept.

  11. Eason would gave to be absolutely terrible to get cut this year IMO. I just dont see why the colts would spend a 4th round pick on a developmental QB, knowing hes a project, only to cut him a few months later.


    I know 4th rounders arent guaranteed roster spots but given the position I feel drafting Eason there carries more weight. 


    the real question of who gets cut is Kelly or Jacoby........

    A guy like JB at 22 years old, on a rookie contract, makes sense as a backup and developmental guy. That same guy at 27, with a large cap hit, who has shown little improvement over three seasons, is a different story.


    Just saying I wouldn't have a problem with young JB sitting behind Rivers for a year or two and seeing what he becomes. 

    I'll remain open minded about him.  Obviously hoping for the best, and I'm not gonna kill anyone over the pick.  If Ballard and Reich agree his shortcomings, including work ethic, are worth the shot, I'm up for watching it unfold.

  13. From the little I've read it seems like he has many of Jacobys shortcomings. Poor field vision, lack of anticipation, one read and run.


    After last year I'd rather have the guy with the mental aspects in place and work on the physical.  I think I'd have gone with Fromm if I HAD to go qb this year.  But obviously hope the best for the kid.  Welcome to Indy.
