     I didn’t get To watch the game but the replays showed their RB busting off some long runs. Was it bad run defense all game of did he just Make some great runs??

    Hey there LKD, 

     

    Don't take this to the bank since I wasn't about to watch every snap of this game, but from what I saw on You Tube highlights & watching NFL Red Zone every quarter on TV, it looked like Mack just put the afterburners on & had a couple of miraculous runs. The Chargers HC & coaching staff are no slouches; They are a well run & well coached organization from top to bottom, which makes our team tenacity from behind & OT performance even more remarkable to me personally.

    Not sure if he’s done for the year yet or not.  It depends on how bad the break is.  Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

    Good advice. I tend to go to worst case scenario more than I probably should. Uh huh. Until the Colts medical staff takes X-rays, anything is possible. Well said GC8818. 

     

    I just get bummed out when our QB loses a tall target with experience that's all. I was hoping for big clutch end zone catches late in the yr though.

     

    I know; I know. Not his fault. INDY always seems to get snake bit with injuries more than most franchises. I wish we would could turn that around & stay healthy for once as a roster. LOL!

    Yeah Funch broke his clavicle 

    I figured he was done for the yr unfortunately. Just like Nick Foles in Jacksonville too. 

     

    I feel bad for guys whose season is over just as the NFL officially got underway. It blows. 

     

    On the plus side, it makes the Jags weaker & more vulnerable for us to knock off now. I'll take whatever advantage INDY can get right now. 

     

    Okay, I'll back off now & try not to dominate this thread anymore. My bad.

    He came back in and kept playing.  

    Whew, that's a huge relief. I was really scared for Darius in the brief moment I saw on TV. Thanks for putting my mind at ease CG8818.

    He is fine funchess  is not

    Thank you for the update Stephen. Appreciate it. Yeah, it looked like Funches landed directly on his shoulder. I winched when I saw that. It looked like all his body weight right there. Sorry man. 


  5. I was watching NFL Red Zone on Dish Network at home. Is LB Darius Leonard okay? God, I sincerely hope so.

     

    Scott Hanson, the host, cut away to another game & I never heard what Leonard's current condition is. He was down on the turf & it didn't look promising.

    Easy there Stephen. He had a bad day at the office. Let's not write his NFL eulogy yet. 

     

    It's week 1. Just take a deep breath. Adam will be just fine.

    I think JB should have really good numbers this year.  He really threw 3 TDS today if they didn't rob Ebron of his TD.  Played a really clean game.

    Exactly Krunk, 

     

    I was so furious when the refs took Ebron's TD away. Everybody & their momma knew he secured the rock & didn't bobble the ball. 

     

    Yes, you're right. Jacoby played well today. He exceeded my expectations against a worthy foe in the Chargers. Very impressive performance in the end. 


  8. That Malik Hooker pick that swung momentum in our favor was a thing of beauty man. I was so pumped when that happened for us, especially when Phillip Rivers looked like he was about to score. 

     

    I also loved seeing Al-Quadin Muhammad put pressure on Philip & knock the ball out of his hand. Our D was darn good. 

     

    I feel very confident about how competitive INDY will be every single week. We won't give up or roll over & die for anybody. Nice.

    Ya but how he acted in Dallas and with the eagles earned him that cancer name.

    True, how things ended in Philadelphia weren't pretty or less than ideal. I will admit that TO left head coach Andy Reid with no other choice then to cut him loose. No argument there.

     

    But, let's not forget that TO played in  Super Bowl XXXIX against the Pats after he more or less lived in a hyperbaric chamber to repair a fractured fibula to even play in that game shall we. So many NFL fans gloss over that fact or conveniently neglect to mention that fact. All they remember is a disagreement TO had with QB Donovan McNabb. A very distorted picture/incomplete recollection. 

     

    As far as Dallas is concerned, owner Jerry Jones loves to make a splash & sign marquee stars like Charles Hailey, TO, & Deion Sanders. Jerry himself alone is the biggest liability to the franchise. The guy never shuts up going on & on about how relevant they are as an organization. What a joke & TO all by his lonesome was the cancer there? Now, that's funny...

    They need him. It's not like Dak is going to carry that team. 

    Amen to that. I get so sick & tired of Skip Bayless going on & on about how great Prescott is. 

     

    Dak is a nice kid & all, but does he scare me down a TD with say 45 seconds in regulation left? Nope. Not one bit. Preach my brother; preach.

    I anticipate us struggling through much of September,  and then I expect us to gradually improve as we did last year...    better every month as the season goes along...     that's my hope...   that we continue to improve all season long...

    You're probably right. Sept. will be a bumpy ride for us & yes, INDY will get better every week. 

     

    I will never quite grasp why some posters go after you more than they should. I like reading your commentary & I always value what you have to say. Your intuitions, thought process, & lay of the land seems sound & accurate to me.

     

    Just remember this: Genius is never fully appreciated until a generation or so later unfortunately.

     

    All kidding aside NCF, I'm glad to see that you are making continuing to make your presence known & not letting anybody silence you mi amigo. :hat: I hope all is well too.

    James may be out, but that D is still good. Chargers are done of the most complete teams in the NFL even though they're dealing with injuries. The defense will have to stop Rivers and the O can't come out flat. It was unlikely that the colts would win with luck. I doubt they win with Brissett but still excited regardless.

    I agree with your assessment that the Chargers are loaded or stacked at every position on their roster. Rivers never gets enough credit for being a tough, seasoned, & elite field general in my estimation. 

     

    I like Jacoby & I believe he will perform better than most experts predict. Tackling always tends to be bad across the league the first few weeks too mostly because veterans haven't played full games yet & they need to built up their endurance & stamina in the 2nd half. I gave our D slightly above marks because I think our defense is gonna be a force to be reckoned with. Okay, more optimism than reality right now. I'll own that. 

     

    The beauty of being left for dead this yr is this: Expectations are lowered thereby giving us the freedom to play loose & be a dark horse team. Under the radar is a great place to be. Being left for dead is a blessing because there's nothing to be afraid of. Just lineup & shock some squads. Why not?

  14. I had Direct TV/NFL Sunday Ticket a few yrs ago. It was nice because I could watch all the Colts & NY Giants games--my 2 favorite squads that I have watched for decades. However, the price just became too expensive/cost prohibitive for me longterm. Plus, I had a ton of weather related issues in Wisconsin where I live causing interference during INDY games so, I left DTV entirely. 

     

    I had Sirus satellite radio for awhile, but listening to games & watching games is a whole different animal. 

     

    I used to go to a local bar & watch blue horseshoe games, but it was burned down courtesy of a fire. Still not thrilled about that one, but whatcha gonna do right? Oh happy joy. :sarcasm:

     

    As for this yr...My main TV died, my car needed work, so worst case scenario for now...You Tube highlights for games not televised nationally in the Badger State...I was thinking about NFL Game Pass but moneys tight right now so, I doubt it for awhile anyway.

    Hey there @Hozer,

     

    A very intriguing thread here buddy. Honestly, Davis quitting at halftime unless you are injured is much worse than calling it a career before the regular season starts to me. I say that because teammates in your locker room feel abandoned by a DB who could maybe pick off a pass late in the second half of a game that could change a team's prospects in the playoff hunt later in the yr scratching & clawing for a wildcard spot. 

     

    Yes, I know that Luck walking off into the sunset squashed our SB aspirations this yr, but at least he didn't make this decision say mid or late November. Imagine the animosity fans would spew then? Ooh baby. Talk about ugly. Not a pretty picture at all folks. 

     

    Still both gentlemen did play well for INDY when health allowed them to so, I really can't crucify either athlete really. Unlike politicians neither Davis or Luck said, they were stepping away primarily to spend more time with their families. That line is usually code for I was banging a woman I shouldn't have been & I need to save my marriage before my wife gets a lawyer, files for divorce, takes me to the cleaners, & saddles me with over the moon alimony payments etc. etc. 

     

    It's a position thing mostly. Franchise QBs have way more wiggle room to be forgiven by the masses faster than cornerbacks do based solely on who handles the ball more every single down each week from September thru February meaning their importance to a franchise for 16 weeks.

     

    Thanks for posting this article Hozer. It makes you realize nothing is ever cut & dry & all breakups eventually get messy. To quote Patrick Swayze in the movie 'Road House': 

     

    "It will get worse before it gets better." Why aren't there any easy life lessons to learn? It figures. LOL!

  16. I'm not gonna lie, I was very surprised to hear that Clowney got shipped to the Pacific Northwest. Clowney should have put up more QB sacks by now at this stage in his career. That's probably why the Texans decided to move on.

     

    I remember when he got drafted. Man, the expectations were high. When Clowney was on he was on. However, his motor lacked consistency at times. Still, that's the ultimate fear isn't it? You cut a guy loose, he goes to a new city, & just lights it up.

    Personally I think he is suffering from Diva Syndrome. 

    Uh huh. AB got his money & felt he was on easy street. More consumed with his bank account instead of earning the respect of his new teammates & coaching staff. 

     

    Just to echo what @2006Coltsbestever said, yes, it's nice to see you back again CC1. :thmup:

    In case it wasn't clear, my initial post was purely sarcasm.

    Trust me Superman, those who know you or are familiar with your presence on the forum knew this immediately. No elaboration or clarification was necessary.

    He is a cancer.TO 2.0

    Oh no, AB is a whole new level of the train has come off the tracks. Look, I get that Terrell Owens gets a bum rap due to how things ended in Philly & deciding not to give his HOF in Canton, Ohio with the rest of his NFL class. However, TO was a model citizen in Cincinnati & Buffalo near the end of his career. The guy always moved the chains on the field when it mattered & he always showed up in shape & ready to work. 

     

    I vehemently disagree with your AB & TO comparison. Yes, both WRs had psychological issues, but I know I could rely on TO in the foxhole when your squad desperately needs a momentum swing ASAP. TO knew when it was time to grind it out & put points on the board man.

    With Luck's retirement, Ballard fixed the QB situation the best he could. I think we'll get 7-8 wins this year. As many have said, Brissett has a nice team around him.

    Hey there Jared, 

     

    Always nice to see a post from you. You always make a ton of sense & you're funnier than hades to me when the mood hits you just right. All my favorite posters share a common thread: Intelligence & free flowing sarcasm. 

     

    Yeah, 7 wins sounds about right for Jacoby. Anything else is gravy. Absolutely right bro...Brissett has a sweet surrounding cast around him. 

     

    I hope everything is cool with ya my man. I'm gradually working my way back on the forum. Peace out.

    Anybody that thinks we should tank is off their rocker. This isn't 2011 where we had a crappy roster. We have a good roster and telling guys like TY Hilton, Eric Ebron, Mack, Nelson, Hooker, Houston, and Leonard to tank is just stupid. Give Brissett a chance.

    You always excel at perspective CBE. It's why you're one of my favorite posters & a must read poster brother.

    This is part of the moving on process from Luck and showing the fans the team is moving on. This had to be done IMO.

    We should be okay with JB as long as we keep a balanced football team that is able to run, pass and play good defense.  I think the season will be worth watching.

    I always trust your judgement brother, even if right now it's more intuition than direct empirical evidence right now.

    I think he's at least as good as Dak Prescott talent wise.  Maybe even better and that's good enough to get you in the playoffs.  I think that's the type of QB he is.  And especially with a good cast around him.

    Dak is a good comparison to Jacoby AKA game manager. Yep, all Brissett has to do is not turn the ball over, take your strategic end zone shots, & hand the ball off-- just to keep opposing defenses honest.

    Good for both sides on the contract, and good job getting Hoyer as backup. (certainly best available) 

     

    It would be great to have a banner of Brissett on the side of the stadium now. 

     

    Side note: I'm not sure if they'll carry 3 QB's, but I'm not sure Chad Kelly wouldn't get plucked from the PS if they try to stash him there after the 2nd game if he took Walker's spot. 

    Precisely Lollygagger8, I value Hoyer's experience & his ability to be a calm sounding board for Jacoby thru choppy waters this season.

    Barry Sanders said it was the losing despite his stellar play led to his early retirement. Plus the owner Ford and Sanders did not see eye to eye. I believe Sanders was trying to get traded but ownership wouldn't budge hence the early retirement...

     

     

    Doesn't really matter IMO since both Sanders & Luck retired early before their careers were far from over when they walked away. 

     

    I understand what you are saying LL & your recollections are indeed accurate. I'm not disputing anything you said. Detroit will always be Detroit as a football franchise. They are only relevant during their traditional Thanksgiving game & not much else sorry to say. 

     

    One could make the argument that the Lions suffered from inadequate front office management & a bare minimum--INDY should have never given Ryan Grigson a contract extension by our owner. I know; I know hindsight is always 20/20. Touche.

    So glad to hear from you again boss, been missing you on here! Love ya brother! 

     

    I was just looking forward to finally being a complete team and ready to finally smash the Pats in the face and then Chewbacca goes and quits....and in a extremely poor way. 

    It all just made me: 

    tenor.gif?itemid=14055895

     

    Regardless, I'll root for our beloved Colts just like everyone else. I want to see Jacoby do well like y'all do! 

    Thanks man. It's nice to know I made a good impression & that the regulars like yourself want me back unlike certain relatives who always overstay their welcome around the holidays. LOL! 

     

    I know brother. The Patriots love fest by the media is overkill on steroids man. Look, I get NE won again, but if I'm being honest, that SB is the most boring game I've seen in say a decade. Just being honest. Robert Kraft gets in trouble at an Asian "massage parlor," they win their 6th ring, & our Chewbacca calls it quits? Are you kidding me? What the hades man?  If you tried to write that storyline as a script, Hollywood producers would throw that timeline in the trash because it's too outlandish & unrealistic in nature. 

     

    Like Krunk said in another thread, we finally get a good team around Andrew & then Chewy says, no thanks. I'm good. Very bizarre. Yeah, we all need to get on the Jacoby train & see where we are at season's end I guess. I get fans being bewildered & angry. Trust me. 

     

    Always love your humor & take on things Lolly. :thmup: I'll send a forum email your direction soon bro.
