  1. My thought as well. He was open and honest with them about coming back for one last run and hanging it up.
  2. Peyton Manning and Dallas Clark.
  3. First episode comes out in November. Not sure on the date or how many episodes there will be but I imagine it’ll get either pretty close or into playoffs. However, I think they are collecting all the film now. I’m not sure how long they’ll stay with the Colts. It may only be something along the lines of Week 1 - Week 10 or something, then the episodes just air later.
  4. But seriously, bagels and pizza in NJ/NY are literally better than anywhere else because of the water/dough.
  5. I imagine Strachan and Kwity will be focal points.
  6. Fair. Anytime the defense is on the field is the “right moment” for me. More specifically, 3rd downs, goal line/RZ, FG kicks, etc. Anyone who has played a sport at a semi-high level or even golf for that matter can appreciate how impactful distraction can be. Some stadiums in my area have dedicated sections that are meant for the people that go all out, all game. Some of these dedicated sections will kick you out if you’re not complying with the fandom rules. Maybe Indy should implement something along the lines of “spirited fan sections”.
  7. Just for clarity, are you implying that a loud stadium (in the right moments) is not a competitive advantage?
  8. I am from NJ and usually fly out for a game each year. Last game I was at (Jags game pre-covid) couple guys in the row behind me were upset that I was standing on 3rd down and cheering when the Colts were on defense. I respectfully told the man that this is a sporting event and I am going to continue cheering on the Colts. Being from NJ and having attended many Philly, NY and NJ games I honestly was shocked that this even happened. The stadium is definitely one of the quieter ones that I have been too.
  9. I like the kid! Hope he plays well and takes full advantage of the opportunities. Crazy that his parents have never seen him play live! Cool to see that they will be able to make it to the MIA game.
  10. Saw this earlier on the Pat McAfee Show. Howie taking a shot at Caron’s durability. He isn’t wrong but I most definitely feel like he could have stated that a little bit differently. Could see why some players including Carson weren’t a big fan of him. Makes me glad we have CB.
  11. Eason's throws have been pretty accurate. His pocket awareness needs to improve drastically. He needs to step up.
  12. Will be tuning in for him and our QBs. First preseason game I’ve ever bet on
  13. You point was about putting too much faith in a single player. What team doesn't put a heavy amount of faith into their starting QB or LT? Many teams don't even have quality players starting at either of those positions and you expect the Colts be have multiple? Ballard is creating competition at the position between what we do have. If there happen to better or more serviceable players out there, I'm sure he would bring them in. Good players at those positions are a luxury. I think it's pretty clear why we go from Fisher to someone quite less serviceable. This fan base was spoiled for a long long time with Glenn and AC.
  14. To be fair the two positions referenced are pretty much the most difficult depth positions in the game. You aren't going to find many teams that can lose either a QB or a LT and be able to easily replace them with their backup. Every team needs depth. They signed Fisher because they know what he can be when healthy and they are willing to accept the risk.
  15. Does anyone know what ever happened to TKnight? Similar to Wentzszn, he was always great with the camp updates.
  16. The chaos this is going to generate
  17. Unfortunately, I feel like you can almost guarantee that it will be used as a point for both arguments. Most importantly, I'm happy to hear he is feeling alright and is asymptomatic! Hope you get back sooner than later coach. With new rules, since he is vaccinated and he's asymptomatic he should be good to return after two negative tests or something right?
  18. Definitely understandable. I was never sick and am a relatively healthy 30-something. Survival rates aside, the variability in a person's immune response to COVID19 and the unknown long-term impacts were two of my biggest drivers. Both the long-term impacts (if any) of COVID19 and the vaccine are not fully understood at this time. It'll be easy to play Monday Morning QB in 10-15 years to see how things pan out. Right now it's up to each person to educate themselves and make the decision they feel is best.
  19. As a science oriented person, I trust the information that is published by scientists, doctors and epidemiologists. Most of whom, have strong opinions on getting vaccinated backed up by their knowledge and findings. I don't disagree that the high survival rate is a strong argument against but that is simply one variable in a larger equation. There are so many other factors. Like vaccine efficacy and unknown long term impacts of both COVID or the vaccine. e.g. the potential long-term impacts on respiratory health for someone who was infected, the disparity in impacts across blood types and ethnicities, etc. My choice in getting the vaccine was a risk-assessment. I felt there was less risk and way more benefits in getting a vaccine that was developed, tested and deployed by a group of individuals that will know more about the cellular structure of our bodies than I ever will. I can understand a persons hesitancy on that but that is why I bolded it's a choice. I don't force my beliefs the vaccine on anyone,
  20. Transparency: I am vaccinated and a very science oriented person. This is a bit surprising, especially since the culture and emphasis on "family" is discussed here often. It really is so interesting to me how polarizing of a topic this is for people. Getting the vaccination is without a doubt a choice but I'm genuinely curious about an individuals reasoning on not doing it. Not for judgement but to simply better understand their perspective and where they are coming from. A couple of my friends are against it but their reasons seem more influenced by social media rather than forming their own opinion by reputable sources. Asking them any sort of question on their stance devolves into defensive attitudes or half-baked thoughts. I'm sure these NFL players have been provided all of the appropriate information and I can only imagine the pressure the NFL is putting on them. I assume many of them actually have solid reasons or at least I would hope so. All in all, you can only control certain things in life. A person's choices and actions are not one of them. This may impact us in the season but it may not.
  21. I understand your reasoning and don’t disagree that it’s tough for Frank to be objective but this wasn’t his decision. Sure he had influence but both Ballard and Irsay are bought in. I honestly don’t think Ballard would’ve made this move if he wasn’t confident that it wouldn’t make us as good or better than last year. There’s a chance it could go either way but I think under the circumstances there is a great chance for it to be positive.
