  1. Preach WM; Preach. Na moan ya vs pneumonia. Fin Nom in all vs phenomenal. The list of complicated words to spell is endless. I'm sign that petition. Absolutely right.
  2. Wait a minute...I'm a little slow tonight...So, your happy dream is to have famous fetching females come over to your flat & play a board game? Maybe you play a more adventuresome game in Scotland then we do in North America BHC. That must be it. Wink; Wink. Something got lost in translation here. Only kidding!
  3. While I agree that Luck went thru a ton of ups & downs since 2012, let's not put Chewbacca on the same plane as the late, great Johnny Cash my friend. I love ya bro, but I can't quite go out on that branch buddy. No harm done. Yeah, but the question is are we talking bout the Rebels vs the Empire kind of Hope or "So, you're telling me there's a chance" Jim Carrey Dumb & Dumber kind of hope? One's realistic/plausible-The other...No chance in hades ice, cold shower. Just Joking! Hands down best reply on this page. Bah! Ha! Ha! Jesus, that is hilarious. Take a bow WM. You earned it.
  4. Not football related in any way. Clowns just freak me out. Not an indictment against your post at all @HectorRoberts. I must have been traumatized at a birthday party as a little kid or something. You know, like a repressed memory. At any rate, another story for another day. Carry on.
  5. You guys read my mind man. I expect Doyle to play a pivotal role this weekend & yes, what in the world has happened to Ebron? I expected him to plunge forward this season not regress or slide backward. Odd. I hope whatever demons are plaguing him are put at bay in short order. A real head scratcher man. I want Eric to play with confidence & purpose again.
  6. I figured as much. Plus, even now, LBs don't wanna report being dinged up because they are so afraid of losing their spot in the lineup to the next man up. I laugh every time some on air commentator boats about player safety & the blue concussion tent. The Commissioner & the owners don't care about player safety period--They just wanna avoid another billion dollar settlement. It's all about the bottom line: Their pocket book not player wellbeing. This is the same league that mandates all former players get a lawyer in order to receive the medical benefits & surgeries after football they are entitled to. This always ticks me off. Instead, create a NFL database where you call a toll free number, they ask you for a pin # from a packet you get when you exit the league, & the player in question gets routed to the medical personnel who can alleviate their aches, pains, & suffering...Both psychological & physical. End Rant. The league can afford this easily.
  7. Yeah, I remember when Luke went through that stretch as well NZ1; especially that 1 game where he was literally crying on the field. LBs work their tails off to reach the league & play at an elite level & just because their brain bounced off their skull one too many times, they begin to wonder: Is this the beginning of the end? It sucks & I feel horrible for any defensive guying going thru this ordeal. I'm still amazed that safety John Lynch claims he's never had a concussion either. I loved watching him collide with a ball carrier on the field. 1 of my favorites, who needs to go into the HOF like yesterday already, but I digress...
  8. I would have preferred to read the full article on Leonard, but I don't fall for that free trial nonsense because online outlets count on people forgetting about the trial period & then they rope you into a full membership. No thank you. No sports articles are worthy of membership fees to me or maybe I'm just frugal to a fault. Anyway, I hope Darius is okay. Lingering symptoms over a prolonged period can indeed be very scary & quite mentally draining indeed, especially when one concussion usually increases the likelihood of others down the road. Hang in there man.
  9. Even though I have never meet you face to face Lolly, I can just picture you saying that with such sarcastic contempt...You know, like when a telemarketer calls you, & you figure let's mess with this s-c-h-m-u-c-k for awhile. Besides, they deserve it & just like Carnegie Hall--Practice makes perfect right? LOL!
  10. I've always been impressed with Sanu too IGjji. The guy just knows how to consistently get open & he's always had very good hands. I'd be thrilled if our GM landed him. When you're good in Cincy, you'll succeed anywhere man. He'd look pretty sweet with a on his helmet too. Will it ever happen? Who knows, but it's a nice dream anyway.
  11. Phenomenal reply CBFL. Beautiful job of reinforcing your point of why INDY is so fortunate to have Frank running things for us on the sidelines week in; week out. My favorite section of what you wrote is highlighted in red. Not every QB has the awareness or ability to put their dreams of leading a squad ahead of what is best for the overall team. Plus, I have a ton of respect for anything Marv Levy, Jim Kelly, or Bill Polian says. Good stuff. It's easy to see now why Reich is so successful once all the pieces meaning backstory falls into focus. Nicely done CBFL! I enjoyed reading it. You should write motivational speeches or folklore of NFL legends AKA diamonds in the rough that need more shine on a global scale anyway. You are among the best posters this forum has & that's not an exaggeration either.
  12. Breaking a sweat for all the right reasons eh? Oh yeah. Well played WM; Well played.
  13. Off topic: My local minister AKA Pastor Jim is a H-U-G-E Chiefs fan. We always tease either other about our favorite squads. Indy either knocks them out of the playoffs or vice versa usually. I'll bet he was animated last night. LOL! He's a darn nice guy & part of me did feel bad for him last night, but I'm glad the Colts stunned the league last night. We always smack talk in a friendly way which team has the upper hand. We both get a kick out of it anyway.
  14. Yes, that is pretty rare on that cable channel isn't it? I'd be curious with what Rex Ryan thought INDY did to the Chefs I mean Chiefs last night. Love that Snickers commercial. Always made me chuckle. I respect Rex's defensive prowess/mind & I'd be interested to hear his thoughts on how INDY kept KC's QB in check at home. Just thinking out loud.
  15. Nice. I always liked Trent as both a QB & booth announcer guy. He knows winning football begins with a stellar offensive line & a solid ground game with excellent blitz pickup capabilities. Green is always fair with his criticism too. He's not striving to be malicious either. Just honest.
  16. Just read it as you suggested NCF. It was a solid breakdown of our victory over the Chiefs. Not long, but well written. I like this line: "Frank Reich is just an amazing, smart, aggressive, tone-setter of a coach." Always liked the term tone setter probably because it's on a similar level with trail blazer meaning we're gonna surprise a lot of people & underestimate us at your own peril folks. I'll take it.
  17. Hey there NCF, A well balanced response on JB my friend. I like that about you. You weigh the pros & cons equally & remind us all to just enjoy the ride & not over analyze the situation to death. Good advice as always. "If you guess the correct lottery numbers, you didn't know anything. You just got a lucky guess." Ah man, you mean that doesn't make me a mathematical genius? Just joking. True, nobody has any idea what Jacoby will turn into yet. I like your approach though. Be patient & don't expect greatness pronto. Let him develop & see what his learning curve is as our starting QB. Just let this season be this season & not become preoccupied with grand expectations of eliteness. Just focus on being consistently good week in; week out. Well said brother. I hope all is well with you as well. Off topic: You wrote a movie review several yrs ago about "25th Hour" starring actor Edward Norton that was top notch by the way. I should retrieve that critique & go into greater detail about that column/write up. I need to do that more often. Highlight great writers & critics on here. I don't do that enough. I tend to dominate that movie thread more than I should. I need to remedy that. Anyway, nice work NCF. You are a talented writer IMO.
  18. Normally, I try to give refs the benefit of the doubt, but even I have my limits. LOL! Not their finest hour to be sure.
  19. I couldn't agree more F2us. Excellent points. Uh huh. That TY penalty was so horrible. It looked even worse on replay. What were the refs even looking at? Send that entire officiating crew to the optometrist immediately.
  20. Yeah, what's that famous Mark Twain quote again? Oh yes, "“The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” You proved that tonight Adam with your accurate foot. Darn right!
  21. You have nothing to apologize for Jared. You stand by your assertions & take your lumps when you have no other choice. ArrowHead is a tough stadium to win in. INDY surprised a lot of us tonight. I'm glad you brought up that game. That roughing the passer call on QB Chase Daniel in the 2nd half with 11:24 left in the 4th quarter was such nonsense today. I think the roughing the passer call was on Trent Brown. I couldn't believe it. Worst penalty I have seen in recent weeks. I could see why Jon Gruden was so upset over that ridiculous 15 yard infraction. Let the defense play refs come on man... Correction: The flag was on Maurice Hurst #73 against QB Chase Daniels not Trent Brown. Sorry about that.
  22. Now, that you mention it. It was quite a change of pace to see Cris Collinsworth praising our QB, our franchise, & our D tonight. When every football fan is watching SNF, it's nice to see INDY dominate for all eyes to see & not collapse. I get so sick & tired of Cris blowing smoke up New England's or Dallas's derriere 24/7. I find it hilarious when the establishment must go off script & give INDY some props. It kills them & that's why I love it.
  23. You pretty much nailed it with this response CBE. Covered all the bases & said exactly what I was thinking. This is why I can't criticize any INDY fan who thought the Chiefs would get a W tonight. I had no idea our D was even capable of that. When the honey badger picked off Jacoby, I was worried. I can't lie. Pleasantly surprised. You have a great read on this team man & Championship Football in general...What's required to achieve it. I don't live in the Hoosier State, but I respect your pulse on the Horseshoe. You know of what you speak man.
  24. I spit up Vanilla Coke when I read this...Thank you for that CVA. I like your style. You're just as messed up as I am, but in a good way. LOL!
  25. Uh huh. Jack isn't meant to be a human pretzel broken in half. I was furious when I saw that hit WM. Unbelievable man.
