Walk On (1/6)



  1. I can tell you this ... San Diegans are in "PAIN" watching this crap play out for San Diego. We (I) just don't admit it.
  2. Uhhh let me qualify my last statement. I will ALWAYS root for the Colts when playing against the Raiders, Broncos or Chiefs
  3. This perspective is from a life long Bolts fan since 1960. When Rivers retires from the Colts, I will no longer wish the Colts well. On the contrary, you are AFC opponents who stand in the way of the ring. I mean no disrespect but .... it is what it is. It is hard enough watching a Chargers team with the shades drawn as though "Chester The Molester" was watching and whose team was ripped away from San Diego. I am old enough to remember dropping back in my back yard saying "I am Johnny Unitas" ..... throwing a Super Bowl winning TD. Too bad Unitas sucked by the time he got to the Chargers and then we had Dan Fouts who started out just as bad but not for long. You can not help but root for a dude like Philip Rivers and I am bummed the Chargers never got him a ring. He deserves it and it was a pleasure watching him. So the answer is "NO" ..... I will NOT root for the Colts after Philip Rivers leaves.
  4. You take what the defense gives and TY had his moments today. The Colts ran up against a real good Bills team. Real good. Next year I want to see the Colts and the Chargers playing in the AFC Championship. Our new quarterback Justin Herbert is throwing passes I never saw Rivers throw which is encouraging. If Rivers is not signed, I wish him well. I hope Colts fans understand this guy is not a brat or mouth and just enjoys jawing his clean smack talk. Rivers once told a cornerback "how to you like them corn flakes" as he was simulating dumping a box of Wheaties on an opponent. You have to wonder wth ? Cornflakes ? And just laugh .....
  5. Thank you Philip Rivers from a life long Chargers Fan. I saw every snap of your professional career. You are an ambassador to San Diego. You always carried yourself as a respectful and honorable man. May god bless you and your family Trumpet_Man PS .... Sign a deal for one more year and get the Colts to the promised land !!
  6. Well that is not quite true. The Chargers won the AFL title in 1963 (51-10) vs. the Boston Patriots before the Super Bowl was known as the Super Bowl. I know it may not seem much to today's fans but that is all we have or "had" The end. Signed Broken San Diego Chargers Fan
  7. Hey dude !!! I could not help wondering how Rivers would do with a great O-Line in Indy. I had a feeling he would get the Colts into the playoffs. Bro has gas left in the tank. I would give Rivers another year to jell with this offense and then ask him to groom an heir apparent for a league minimum offer and like it. And no my posting days are largely behind me since the Chargers left San Diego. I just drove by Jack Murphy stadium today from work and saw the east end of the old Chargers stadium completely demolished. A tear rolled down my cheek. And then another ........
  8. Too funny. Yes indeed Philip Rivers name is spelled with "ONE" letter "L". I saw these same posts in San Diego as a Chargers fan. Philip Rivers is a WARRIOR !!!
  9. I do feel the Chargers have a legit shot at the AFC Championship against the Colts. You bet. The Chargers defense is damn scary if they stay healthy. Our new guards are nails but our tackles suck and returning center was neck injured. The Bolts swing tackle is a joke for our team so I do not see the depth needed for my former team to go the distance but enough to make a whole hell of a lot of noise. You fans will enjoy Rivers. Rivers was the ONLY jersey I ever wore as a fan after 50+ years rooting for the Chargers. Divorce from the Bolts has been a Bytch and hard to explain unless you were born in Southern California. Thanks for the therapy ;)
  10. I am old enough to be alive as these cities lost their teams: Los Angeles Chargers (1960), Los Angeles Rams, Oakland raider (twice now), St. Louis Cardinals, Cleveland Browns (I refused to play TAPS for those fans in the parking lot) Baltimore Colts, Houston Oilers = man I am freaking NFL OLD. Finding NFL peace after being a fan for 50 years is not easy. San Diegans have an intense DISLIKE for anything Los Angeles. Losing MY team after 50+ years was like watching a family member get drawn and quartered while the owners of the NFL horses pulling limbs apart laughed. Will I find peace ? Not until the Chargers return to San Diego with new ownership.
  11. Hello Colts fans from a long time and well known Chargers fan since 1960. Your team will not be disappointed since Rivers will FINALLY have and O-Line worth a damn. I am not sure why the Chargers always seems to crap the sheets for decades getting a complete O-Line. Rivers is a warrior who talks trash without ever using swear words. As a crapped-on off Chargers fan since the relocation and Oceanside native, I am forced to wonder who I root for in an AFC Championship between the Colts and the Chargers (yeah I am that * off since the relocation). My wife will root for the Colts (ouch) and I am sitting on the fence if the grudge match AFC Championship game comes to fruition. As of this date I have to say I would not be that "butt hurt" if the Colts win it all taking the Chargers out in the process BUT this may change. This Covid-19 madness can make a Bolt brother go crazy. Signed A *Off Chargers fan
