  1. Why is everything made for right handed people? Why can't left handed South Paws get some love, respect, & consideration?

      I feel your pain. So much that so many of us take for granted....

  2. Anything is a vast improvement over Irsay's "And Um's" IMO. Grigson knows what he wants tough guys with a tremendous work ethic that love the game plain & simple.
  3. HCF, I like what you said regarding Jim Caldwell, good QB coach & a lousy head coach. I wouldn't be too quick to believe the press & praise on Andrew Luck either. Now, I'm not saying the kid isn't talented. Heck, his dad played backup QB for the Houston Oilers. Luck understands the ebbs & flows of a season & the significance of locker room chemistry. Just be realistic about his rookie season Colts fans. I see us at 6-10 or 7-9 at best. Within 3 years, we will be in the Playoffs hunt again. It takes time to get the right pieces in place. Are we "Under Pressure" as you suggest? No, not really right now we are attempting to lay down the running & defensive toughness mindset for the next decade. Another well written blog HCF...Keep it up my friend!!!
  4. Another nice blog HCF. Yes, toughness has now returned to my beloved Colts once again with the hiring of Coach Pagano & his coaching staff. A stout defense, a reliable running game, & special teams play that can actually provide good to excellent field position...imagine that? Amazing!!! The sleeping giant has now awoken & she is famished...Time to eat..."Simple Me Complicated You." What's on the menu tonight D? Opposing QB boys...I love an all you can buffet myself. [insert Vincent Price diabolical cackle here.]

    Something new

    Nick sounds like a good man subvet. Any man that asks the bride's father for permission to marry his daughter is a person of significant honor & integrity in my book. I wish Nick & Jackie many happy years of marital bliss together. Thanks for sharing such a life changing moment & congratulations to you & your family subvet!!!
  6. Another good blog HCF!!! Perhaps, once you retire, you can become a freelance writer/blogger in your spare time. Draft predictions always crack me up. Unless you have a family member that either was or is in the NFL, "potential" isn't synonymous with "guarantee." Yes, you are correct HCF; we are very fortunate as an organization to land 2 high caliber QB's back to back 14 years apart i.e. Manning & Luck. If both QBs had to decided to leave college early & enter the draft, Manning might be a NY Jet. Glad to see Brent has returned as well.
  7. We all need to release pressure valves & the rigors of our work week. Never be ashamed to blare some quality metal subvet!!! Your A okay in my book pal. Keep rockin' subvet!!! The louder the better I always say...
  8. HCF, thank you for sharing information about your career, personal life, admiration for Colts football, & your native country of Hungary. Maybe we could see a beautiful wedding picture of you & Alexandra someday. I would really enjoy seeing that eventually when the time right for both of you. Your English is very good HCF & I am very proud of you. Learning another language is a monumental undertaking. I enjoy learning about different customs & cultures very much. I am really glad we are friends & I look forward to reading more interesting blogs & other posts from you my friend!!!
  9. Some fans approach blogs & forum posts from a statistical perspective. Me, I'm more of a front office chemistry guy myself. Drew Brees is your shining beacon of hope. When Hurricane Katrina broke the leeves in New Orleans & your city was brought to it's collective knees, who gave the people of the French Quarter & her surrounding areas something to cheer about? Drew Brees. When the Saints beat my beloved Colts in the 2009 Superbowl, who was a key advocate for creating a lottery system in which tickets were sold & donated to Katrina victims courtesy of a 2nd Superbowl Ring that a person could actually win & feel part of the Lombardi magic by owning their own NFL piece of history? Drew Brees. Who will put the burden of the bounty scandal squarely on his shoulders & remind the rest of the NFL that even the fallen are worthy of redemption? Drew Brees. Pay the man now!!! $19 million sounds about right. The longer management drags these talks out; the more expense it will be for them IMO. Good Job CP11!!! Very well written piece of profession prose here.
  10. Nice job of bringing the fan focus smack dab between our eyes & reminding us all that the blue horseshoe will re-emerge again stronger, faster, bolder, & more fierce than ever before..."‘Simple me, complex you'." Some Fans wanna pray not me...To me, our opponents, our enemies, our adversaries are PREY locked in the talons of a hawk or the thunderous gallop of a team of horses on a mounted cavalry charge leading men into war inside the grid iron battlefield of Lucas Oil Stadium...Bring the pain & drop the intimidation baby...Let's get ready to Rummmmmmbbbbble Baby!!!

      I think we've all had plenty reading the responses. Thanks for the laughs (and giggles)

  12. I think all of Colts Nation had the same reaction over Manning's departure from INDY...Looks like stage 1 or stage 2 to on the grief meter to me...sigh... Hang in there kid.
  13. GM Brent & Front Office expert WeSpy...What a creative melting pot of NFL intellect & emotion!!! Time to roll up your sleeves & go to work gentlemen. Lookin' forward to this intense combination from April through February fellas.
  14. Why do famous musicians, world renowned actors, and revered business tycoons that possess financial security always tell you with a straight face that money isn't important? Do we routinely seek health advice from obese people on physical fitness too? Hmmm..

      I was watching the Herd awhile ago, and Colin made a great point: He said in Peyton's circle of family and friends, he will be talking about the entire situation and one of them will say something that turns the table. Peyton Manning will then announce between the 3 favorites as the light bulb has been turned on.

      Mirror, Mirror, on the wall...#18 traded in the Horseshoe for a horse & I won't have to shatter you into a million pieces today. Excellent!!!

  17. Yes, even if Brackett, Addai, & Clark find new football homes, the hardest part of being released is having to prove your worth to a new locker room all over again. Not to mention getting acclumated to a whole new city, school, & family life in a fresh new zip code. Good luck gentlemen...May you all land softly & safely on your NFL feet.
  18. I wanted to give other people a chance to chime in here before I left a reply here. I've never been the subject of a blog before even in jest. I view it as a complement myself. Plus, who wouldn't enjoy seeing their name in the title tag line right...As far as our win/loss percentage this year is concerned, I say either 6-10 or 7-9. No we won't make the Playoffs. I can hear the Jim Mora rant in the back of my head right now. But, our squad will put the capital I in the word intimidation though. It all boils down to defense & superb special teams play. We finally have teachers now who can didactically implement the proper placement of hands, feet, arms, & hips at all times so these actions natuarally become automatic reflexes particularly in the 4th quarter when players begin to get tired, weary, & exhausted. Clever Blog WeSpy keep it up my friend.
  19. Beware of the Idles of March today...Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times on March 15th in 44 B.C. by Marcus Junius Brutus...a little history lesson

      MI, Your anger is understandable.

      I completely agree with southwest and HCF, MI. I sure hope your daughter is ok, and that the bully has been punished. It's shameful that kind of behavior is usually ignored and allowed to happen.

      Violence is frequent nowadays...even in schools... If I had a kid an gets into such situation, I should control myself well...I would be enraged too.

  20. "This is a process... We are getting rid of older players in order to infuse the team with young talent to build around a new QB. For the last 10 years we've been trying to surround Peyton with players to win a super bowl. By the time Luck is ready to win his first super bowl, our previous core of players will be retired or on the downside of their careers. We need new talent, and without cap space, we can't try and achieve that goal." This is a total overhaul & Colt rebuilding project plain & simple. Should take no more than 3-4 years tops to get on the competitive side of the coin again.
  21. If Peyton Manning chooses Denver as his new NFL home, how many former Colts will go there with him & who will they be exactly?

    1. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      Peyton should buy the Jags (they still for sale?), be the QB and hire Reggie, Clark, Brackett, Freeney, Saturday, etc, etc... LOL

    2. Gramz

      cross Reggie off the list.... he's remaining a Colt..!!!

  22. " I still can't imagine him in a different uniform, I will probably cry again when that happens." Yeah that's true...You, me, MIColtsFan, Brent, Gramz, Maureen, Barry, & all my other Colts Forum friends too.
  23. Amen...On the 7th & 8th day, God created Marvin Harrison & Reggie Wayne too!!!
  24. Very telling & haunting statistics MIColtsFan....I hope it won't foreshadow dark days ahead for our Colts franchise without Yoda at the helm.
  25. Wednesday, March 7, 2012 11 A.M. Central Standard Time. A press conference that will live in infamy for all the wrong reasons. Seldom do you see a future Hall of Fame quarterback & franchise owner in the same room announcing a public separation & divorce from one another. Why did this prosperous NFL partnership really end? Health, cold hard cash, & nerve re-generation? What's the real story here? During the press conference yesterday, the owner Jim Irsay said this, "the plane ran out of gas." The entire fan base was on pins & needles hoping some last minute midnight re-structuring contract deal could be signed with the ink still wet keeping #18 in Indianapolis. Presumably, as Jim Irsay & Peyton Manning rode the lear jet back from league meetings in Florida, they reflected upon all their years together...a promising, young prospect fresh off the University of Tennessee campus, the 3-13 1st season under the new Manning era in '98, breaking his idol Dan Marino's touchdown quarterback record with 48 in 2004, the Tampa Bay Bucs comeback game under head coach Jon Gruden on the opposing sideline, taking down our arch rivals the Patriots & bringing the Vince Lombardi Trophy home to the Horseshoe in 2006, an onside kick recovery away from changing the entire dynamics of the 2009 Superbowl against the New Orleans Saints, fighting through bursa sac knee surgery in 2008 to rattle off 8 straight victories & getting the Colts in the Playoffs, getting Lucas Oil Stadium built, & hosting a Superbowl in the great city of Indianapolis...I'm the 3rd guy in the room Peyton spoke of yesterday Mr. Circumstance. Just like the business side of football, Mr. Circumstance is cold, crude, & unemotional. I'm all about the money, cap space, potential team suitors, revenge, & proving all the doubters & nay sayers wrong. Just like Peyton told Bill Polian "If you don't take me, I'm gonna kick your a** for the next 10 years." Irsay no longer wants the same dance partner. Okay fine. Your day of reckoning will come soon enough. #18's competitive juices are chomping at the bit to show you just how strong this fully functional arm will be by September. Yoda AKA Peyton Manning will have his pick of the NFL litter. Many experts predict Miami or Buddy Ryan's defensive guru Rex Ryan in New York. Mr. Circumstance reminds you all that Yoda won't play in the same division as his baby brother Eli Manning, he must respect the new team owner & head coach, he would prefer to avoid the glaring spotlight of the Big Apple, & he must be given free reign over the offense with minimal interference & oversight. Can anyone say Mile High in Denver? "The bloodless coupe" whereby Tim Tebow #15 is swiftly replaced with #18. Fans in Colorado would accept & approve this move without any resistance. Solid defense & John Fox will provide Peyton with a good running game. The Kansas City Chiefs are another dark horse possible suitor for Peyton as well. The most isolated outpost in the Pacific Northeast i.e. Seattle Seahawks are in legitimate bidding war contention as well for #18's field general services too. Running back & skittles beast Marshawn Lynch could be #18's "Edge" #2, their secondary is within the top 5% of the NFL, the 12th man crowd noise is sound deafening when necessary, & Paul Allen, of the richest owner in the NFL, responsible for silicon computer valley & Microsoft headquartered there could bring in whoever Peyton Manning wants...Reggie Wayne no problem. Who else do you want? Vincent Jackson...Sure...Next? Mr. Circumstance laughs at the demand or preference to play in an indoor facility by so called media experts...Can #18 handle constant home field stadium rain? Let me get this straight: Peyton Manning won a Superbowl in 2006 with sheets of down pouring rain against Chicago...Prince even sang "Purple Rain" during halftime, but Peyton cannot win playing games outside. What a load of crap. Yoda will win another "precious" ring, & unlike J.R. R. Tolkien's literary masterpiece the "Lord Of The Rings" trilogy, he won't have to climb Mount Doom in order to do it either. Mr. Circumstance doesn't get bogged down with blame, rhyme, or reason...Mr. Circumstance only focuses on the aftermath & final results. The ends justifies the means..."Mile High" sherbet ice cream orange just like his Tennessee University college days will be Peyton's new NFL uniform colors next year. John Elway & Peyton Manning will raise the shimmering silver Tiffany's Diamond Vince Lombardi Trophy once again...Who doubts #18's arm now?!!
