  1. Bowen and Holder are my favorite as well. Honestly feel like most of the time the other guys are piggybacking off these two. I don't mind Chappell as well.
  2. Just finished. This series gets me so pumped for the season.
  3. All of the interviews about him not "needing" football in his life and he could step away and be completely happy give me Andrew Luck vibes way too much. I want a guy who lives and breathes football to be the QB of this team. I know we all hate on Tom Brady (me included) but the dude LOVES the game. Matt Stafford is another player that comes to mind.
  4. Pretty indifferent to the Reich/Wentz relationship but if it makes both of them more successful then I welcome it. Best part of the episode for me was TY. Guy has been a stud for us for so many years and to see him excited again makes me happy. He was crushed when Andrew left and his production obviously suffered but I really do believe him and Wentz could do some fun things. Will be exciting to watch, let's hope for a fantastic year! We are certainly setup for it with the talent and front office support this team has.
  5. Pat had a video clip on his Twitter summarizing his and TY's conversation. Made it sound like TY was really fired up and excited with how the session went. Mentioned right away he felt like they had chemistry and that Wentz has a cannon.
  6. Allen’s actually struggled more against Zone D this year.
  7. Pretty sure this is standard, especially because it’s a Saturday and an away game. If it was an away game on a Sunday we probably would’ve had one additional day of limited contact. I don’t think we should worry. They are still practicing and going through reps.
  8. Sadly this took me a minute but once I realized it gave me a good laugh.
  9. The Bills have been playing great most of this season. I think they did the right thing keeping their starters in the last game to keep the flow going. I expect them to be a tough matchup. However, I feel comfortable about the Colts chances. We have a talented defense that ebbs and flows a bit, we just need them to get hot. Turay is starting to come on, Buckner and Leonard will make plays and Kenny Moore has been flying around. There is a lot of talent on that side of the ball. TJ Carrie and Rhodes have even been pretty good. It also looks like we are getting Khari back which I think is going to make a massive difference. Offensively I think we all know what we need to do. Run it down their throats. They have an average defensive line, we have MAULERS. Push them around, run up the gut, throw quick screens and to JT and Hines in the flat. Our RBs and defensive line are going to carry us to a win this weekend. Bets JT's rushing o/u will be around ~85 yards, I'm betting the over. Hines receiving o/u will probably be ~24 yards. I'm betting the over.
  10. JT balled out. Let's not crown Veldheer as next year's starter. It's one game against the worst team in the league. He played well but this really isn't the best sample size to decide if he's going to play LT for us next year.
  11. BUF & KC are probably the two best teams in the NFL right now, it will certainly be tough. However, BUF isn't unbeatable. They've had some really close games this year to teams that are far more questionable and when Colts actually want to play they can. We beat two great teams in TEN (handled BUF) and GB (NFC top seed). I could see us making it a game if we play with some better consistency. KC on the other hand, they are so explosive. We beat them before by controlling the clock and running the ball down their damn throats so IF we get there, I could see us doing it again. RTDB!
  12. A bit worried about PR throwing the ball in the colder temps but just ride JT all the way to the SB.
  13. All solid points! Nice review! Only one I disagree with is Bad#4. Obviously 20/20 because we still got the FG but I loved the aggressive play call there, Especially after we gashed them for 10+ on the same drive with a similar call. A FG there only put us up by 6 if I recall correctly. Getting the TD and putting us up by 10 was definitely worth the risk of the FG IMO.
  14. Maybe this coupled with AC for 2 more years means AL is coming back for the SB run.
  15. His retirement and transition to his daughters maybe?
  16. Man there are some nostalgic plays in there that will always stay with you. Manning to Collie, what could have been. Luck to Hilton, just crazy to think how in-sync these guys were. Hilton deserves better then he has now.
  17. I wouldn't mind seeing Foles back with Reich. Could be interesting ;)
  18. Will he decide he wants to come back, TBD. I'm surprised at how many people are saying things like "Luck didn't love football", "Luck doesn't miss the game" etc. I really just don't believe any of those things. The dude is not the loudest guy in the room, that we know, but that doesn't mean his passion for the game is any less. Noise and showmanship != passion. Those just weren't aspects of his personality. Football has been an integral part of his entire life, professionally and personally. Luck grew up on football, he's formed countless relationships and it's weaved into the fabric of who he is. I would be absolutely shocked if some of his greatest memories weren't on the football field. The dude played his * off for this team and other teams time and time again. You don't do that, you don't get to the highest level of this game if you aren't passionate about it. I feel as if fans aren't putting enough significance on the state of his mental health. It is a very very serious thing. It has the absolute power to strip everything that you love most from you. Above all else I really think that this was the biggest reason in his decision. Not that his love for the game changed or that his heart wasn't ever really in it in the first place. Do I think Luck misses the game, his teammates, the competitiveness, and the sheer amount of mastery you need to play at that level? Absolutely, he probably wishes everyday that things went differently. Do I think he has interests in life other than football? Yes, I definitely agree with posters who have stated this. However, I think that is the same for many great players (including #18). It's that drive that helps make them so good in the first place. Do I hope he comes back? Yes, I would be ecstatic to find out Luck has returned. Not only for the great football player he is but because I honestly believe that if it occurred it would mean that he's gotten a handle on his mental health as a person.
  19. I think it’s good the Titans won. Keeps them in the playoff race and motivated which we need as they still face off on the Texans twice. If we beat Tenn and HOU loses to NE we still got a shot at the division.
  20. Shocked Paris can't go yet with him being limited all week, still struggling to catch the ball I imagine. Nice to see TY has a shot and Wilkins looks like he's good to go. So our healthy corners for this game are: Desir Moore Tell Wilson Hopfully Rock
  21. Does LOS have any dedicated "super-fan" areas? I know I've been to other stadiums in the past and they actually have sections that require/strongly encourage you to stand, cheer, etc. Saddens me that I have to call that a "super-fan" area but I think it's time I try a different section at LOS.
  22. Love to read this. Where are your seats? Friends and I will be joining you next year I politely told him that I’m sorry but if they stood maybe the opponent would make even less third downs. I tried to be as political as possible being an out of towner and wanting to show respect to my elders but I was incapable of just sitting and not cheering.
  23. Neither. Perhaps a bit older (late 50s-early 60s) but didn’t seem to have any issue getting up for restroom/concessions. Not that everyone I’ve encountered is like that but I have felt in general it’s a way more conservative/docile crowd then what I’m used to back home.
  24. Came in from NJ yesterday for our annual Colts game and had two gentlemen behind us ask us to stop standing on third down because they didn’t want to stand and couldn’t see. Pretty much sums up the general enthusiasm of fans here from my experiences over the last 5 years.
