  1. Exactly BHC; exactly. Some fans are just never happy. I'll take the victory by the skin of our teeth any day of the week. Don't get greedy folks. Just take the W & move on.
  2. Happy belated birthday Hozer! You're not a jinx buddy trust me. I like it when regulars on here give us a first hand account of their LOS experiences or personal experiences really. I say that because it give readers your genuine emotions & recollections of what you remember--The sights, the sounds, the smells, the trepidation, & the euphoria of the final victory. Kudos to your son for never giving up on INDY & let's be honest saying "win for daddy" does pull at a person's heart strings whether a fan is a parent or not man. Very cool my man. I enjoyed reading your thread Hozer & I respect you even more for being so honest about your INDY game day memories. I'm glad your birthday went so well for you & your son. Nice. I was even able to watch this game on my local CBS affiliate TV station too from start to finish. In Wisconsin, I rarely get to watch the Colts play on Sundays since I live in the Green Bay Packers market for the most part. I was so pumped to see the Colts play. Sweet! I could order NFL Game Pass I suppose, but suffice to say, It wasn't in the cards for me this yr. At any rate, this isn't about me; it's about you & your son. Happy to hear that you & your boy have this fond memory of INDY winning on your birthday buddy. It couldn't happen to a nicer dude!
  3. History, music, war, & Automatic Adam family bloodlines all rolled into one. Very impressive CBFL. You always have a fresh, multi-layered perspective on topics my friend. Your links were very informative & illuminating too, especially the ability to listen to Custer band tracks. Nice. I appreciate the complement by the way. Thank you. Since I consider Adam V. clutch when the situation warrants it just like he did vs the Broncos on Sunday, this tribute seemed fitting to me... I have a soft spot for acoustic guitar & Adam's ability to always deliver feels like the 'Last of the Mohicans' to me. When the chips are down, Adam will always carry you home & drag you across the finish line if necessary.
  4. So, why don't tell me how you really feel? Just joking! Well placed bluntness is very effective. You know as a little kid when the teacher is upset & says "Care to share with the rest of the class F2us?" I almost wish I was there to hear your reply. LOL!
  5. One final point on Matt Ryan & my belief that he should force his way out of Atlanta: I think he'd fit nicely in Buffalo too. Yeah, I know. Traditionally, dome QBs don't play well in snow & the Bills play in very frigid & windy conditions. Point taken. However, the Bills D is legit & because Matt Ryan has nice touch/ball placement on his throws, this addition could work. Plus, to be honest, I feel bad for Buffalo fans who deserve hope as a franchise & I wanna see that historic club cheer for something beyond Frank Gore & Jim Kelly. If any team deserves a break & a boatload of goodwill to come their way, Buffalo is it.
  6. Well said CBE. Well said. After HC Dan Quinn gets fired/let go, why would a 2nd tier QB like Ryan wanna stick around for the rebuild? Okay, I understand he's handsomely compensated & Atlanta is a great city to live & raise a family in, but Matt's never gonna win a ring there & he's not getting any younger. Yeah, I'm with ya man. I'd wanna go to a contender team or a decent one anyway say Chicago with it's solid defense maybe.
  7. That's an excellent point. Why would the Dirty Birds basically come to the conclusion, what the hades, our season is over, let's make NE who kicked our caboose in the SB awhile back even better with 1 of our best WR weapons. Come again? Arthur Blank. Why did you green light this move? A misguided, early Christmas gift? SMH. You slay the dragon; You never strengthen an adversary man. A really strange roster move indeed DS.
  8. When I heard that Emperor Palpatine [Bill Belichick] acquired Sanu, I sighed, shook my head, & said out loud: Come on, must NE win every Super Bowl? This is getting absurd now. Enough is enough. Everybody tells me when this dynasty is gone, I will miss it. No, not really. Funny, sarcastic line though MPS. I have to give you props for making me chuckle pretty darn good. Bravo.
  9. Yes, it was nice to see Eric shake off the cobwebs vs the Texans. That's the Ebron we've all been waiting for. Love that Jacoby graphic man! It's like a lava lamp. I can't stop starring at it. Cool. Exactly Krunk. The fog finally cleared brother. I was starting to get concerned. I feel so much better now. Very perceptive post Lolly. More of a problem with his former Motor City QB than him. Stafford usually throws beautiful missiles that go incomplete. Next level smart. Thank you C6124 for putting a finger on why sports pundits tick me off. Even when we win, they always find some ridiculous disclaimer to cheapen or minimize our victory. Precisely, just take the W & don't overthink it. Uh huh. Some folks are never happy. Like somebody who wins $10 million in the lottery & they complain because it should have been $20 million. Well said J48. Just soak up the euphoria & don't get preoccupied with what went wrong. Loaded or not, your reasoning is sound, accurate, & needed to be said. Thank you.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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...
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Breaking a sweat for all the right reasons eh? Oh yeah. Well played WM; Well played.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
