  1. Lets hope he isn't retired and in HOF before the Colts get offense straightened out. Kinda joking, kinda not
  2. Stories behind players like this is why I wouldn't make a good GM lol I'd have to keep him around and pay the man. Be in salary cap hell before I'd know what hit me
  3. Another "play down to opponent" performance. Gotta keep em close
  4. No idea how this game will go. Arrows point to Colts ground and pound with Texans poor run defense. No Mack, Hilton may/may not play and def not at 100%. I believe the defense can keep Colts in the game, offense has to roll and show up
  5. D. All the above..But Brissett runs out of bounds on game winning drive, wipes out McDaniels and Hoyer steps in to hand ball off to add salt to wound before final timeout and Vinny's game winning kick..
  6. Just looked at his college high light reel. Wore #32 and the way he keeps his feet moving in a short, choppy way reminded me of Edge. Doesn't look to have great top end speed but looks sneaky fast from handoff to first 10-15 yards and runs with mean intentions.
  7. Definitely a strange year. Won games thought might lose, lost games thought might win. Could possibly be 9-1 just the same as 4-6. This defense is one that have been wanting for a long time and believe will only get better with age. Hoping Brissett will get better on read progressions and offense can get rid of the injury bug. Love seeing the Colts impose will on teams by successfully running the ball. Haven't had that in years. Who knows, a stout defense and good run game has produced championships before. Just need consistency
  8. Get that ground game pounding the rock and able to take it to the house any given play. Add this defense getting better with age and starting to clamp down and Jacoby doing what he's capable of with a healthy receiving corps and I'll take those stats..all the way to the SB
  9. Colts games haven't been aired here on local TV. I've followed them on the basic ESPN app feed along with a few Twitter accounts. With that said, late in yesterdays game, it was 3rd and something and the ball fell incomplete, I think it was to Doyle . One of my twitter feeds, who was at the game, mentioned there were other open WR's on that play and Brissett doesn't go through reads quick enough. That there hasn't been any progression in that area. Then on last possession Brissett made the lazer strike on the run while avoiding the sack.. and it all went away..reminds me of Luck, makes a bonehead throw for a pick 6 right to a defender and then came right back next series with a miracle play. Brissett needs more playing time to really set a guage as to if he,s elite and the franchise QB
  10. Pump them brakes..Only 2 games played since the disappointing loss to the Raiders. Plenty of things needing worked on. Capable of running the table? Maybe, just have to show up and play complete in all 3 phases of football
  11. Guilty..i chose the "lose by 20+" on the poll post..never saw this coming
  12. Colts are injured across the board on both offense and defense. IF were healthy it'd be interesting to see where this team stacks up. Current state..doesn't look promising
  13. I looked Faulks #'s up and surprising to me his last year '98 was his best year in Indy and aside from his 13 game season in '96 the other 3 years were pretty stellar too. In my mind I never thought he reached the hype he had coming out of college until he went to the Rams..his #'s show otherwise tho
  14. Marshall Faulk. Did pretty good with the Colts but really became the complete back and integral part of the greatest show on turf with the Rams. More disappointed,never hated, to watch him flourish in a different uniform than with Colts
  15. Young Colts D will be forged by fire, they'll get better
  16. I was 7 years old and had the Jones #7 jersey as a kid. Was my hero. Like many, lived through that... watching him retire early and then the bad teams. The Elway fiasco. Then the "move". Still stuck with the Colts. As adults, can understand some of Lucks reasons. Hate it most for the young Colts fans, prolly have Luck jerseys, was their hero. Some might have been at the game. And they won't get the chance to at least see him retire and ride off in the sunset under better circumstances.
  17. In hindsight, Irsay did Peyton a favor. The O line stunk as did the defense.
  18. Shocked but not shocked. Thought could happen, but didn't think it would. The timing is awful but just have to keep moving on. Sucks
  19. At this moment in time, and hopefully soon changes, biggest "hole" is no Andrew Luck
  20. Wrap that thing up... and send it
  21. Not many positive "possibles" with that performance for sure
  22. Agree. That's why I said haven't seen enough of Brissett behind a much improved O Line and not many QB's would've looked good with the line Brissett had to work with. Reich believes in Brissett and stated he believes Brissett is a top 20 starting QB in the league.
  23. True. I just feel that O Line can now protect a QB AND open holes in run game. Haven't seen enough of Brissett with those attributes. Seemed opposing defenses were on him as soon as ball was snapped the games he started, not many QB's if any could flourish in that scenario. Also would depend on EVERBODY staying healthy
  24. If Brissett manages the game, the defense is as good as we think it might be and can also muster a potent run game anything is possible
  25. `05 I was sitting in the funeral home for my Grandmas prayers services. Knew they were losing but my cousin was getting updates somehow and told me they were lining up for a field goal. Never forget him disgustingly whispering "he shanked it" with vein popping out his forehead..was a double bad day
