  1. In terms of Peyton only getting to 2 Super Bowls with the Colts, keep in mind the following. Manning came here in 1998. The Colts became elite in 2003. From there, it goes like this in the postseason: 2003: Lost to the Super Bowl winner (NE) 2004: Lost to the Super Bowl winner (NE) 2005: Lost to the Super Bowl winner (Pit) 2006: Won the Super Bowl 2007, 2008: Lost to San Diego (who did not go to the Super Bowl) 2009: Lost the Super Bowl 2010: Lost to the Jets (who did not go to the Super Bowl) In terms of not getting to the Super Bowl, it was
  2. The Colts front office showed they still don't get it when they drafted a WR (Dorsett) in the first round last year. Even if they thought Dorsett was the best overall pick at the time, it doesn't matter. Need to pick OL and DL for every single pick and hope that the round 1 and 2 picks are good, and that a later round pick surprises.
  3. While this is interesting conversation, it's the defense that needs the upgrade more than anything else. We gave up 44 to KC in the playoffs and 43 to NE in round 2. Yes, I know some of those points were due to Luck interceptions, but defensive upgrades are the solution.
  4. Kenny, 11 of the 15 games were in regular season (7 at NE, 4 at Ind). 4 were in playoffs (2 at NE, 2 at Ind). I don't know how the schedule makers decide who gets the home game when they play each other. Denver will play NE next year again since they both won their divisions this year. I'm not sure there is a way to know where that game will be prior to the schedule coming out. It's easy to know which 16 games will be on any team's schedule next year, but I've never figured out how to know which games will be at home and which games will be away.
  5. Yehoodi - in my analysis, I didn't analyze the defense other than mention that the Patriots had an extremely good defense back when NE really started the rivalry (2003 and 2004). My guess would be that the Patriots had a better defense than the Colts in MOST seasons dating back to 2001. I suppose though that you would counter that by saying the Colts had the better offense though. In the end, my post was to make the point that Brady's 10-5 is not all it's cracked up to be. That home field advantage is huge, as I think is evidenced by the facts in the post. 15 games head to head, and on
  6. We always hear about how Brady is better than Manning going head to head. Well, I think that is all misguided. Let's look at some facts: (1) Head to head in playoffs: Manning 2, Brady 2 Home games for Manning: 2; Home games for Brady: 2 (2) Head to head in AFC Championship Games: Manning 2, Brady 1 Home games for Manning:2; Home games for Brady: 1 See the pattern - home team wins. Now, let's see how that plays out overall. (3) Head to head overall: Brady 10, Manning 5 In the 15 match-ups between Manning and Brady. Brady has played at home 9 times. Since the home team always seems
  7. I started rooting for Colts as a kid when they were in Baltimore as I grew up there. When they moved to Indy, there was no reason to stop. Same team, same uniform, same everything. Much different than other teams that have switched cities and name/uniform/... (e.g. Cleveland Browns to Baltimore Ravens). Most people here don't like the Colts, but I'm glad to see above that there are others like me (and not just my brother).
  8. Luck led us to 5 touchdowns in the second half in the KC playoff game. He's gonna be just fine. He'll learn not to throw bad interceptions and we will roll for 10 years!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Same old, same old for Trent Richardson. Let's forgo the drama of whether he will turn into a better player next year and just get rid of him now.
  10. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a first round pick next year. Oh yeah - we got Trent Richardson instead :-(
  11. To the guy above that said Marlin Jackson: Marlin Jackson made one of the biggest interceptions in Colts history, sealing the Colts AFC Championship game win against the Patriots. He could have never played a down after that and would still have never been a Bust just for that 1 key play,
  12. For those of us that did not follow Trent Richardson in his college days, here is what we know: He was the #3 pick in the draft, so we know he was really good in college. He averaged 3.5 yds per carry with the Browns - nothing special. With the Colts, his yds per carry is even lower. He is very slow out of the backfield. He is pretty good in the open field if he catches a screen pass. He is pretty good on 3rd and 1. He almost never has a big run. What bothers me the most is that when he pass blocks, it seems like on multiple occasions, he is just standing in no-man's land when the rush
  13. Hmm - so if the Colts did not end up with the top pick, would any of this have happened? Irsay signed Manning to a 5 yr deal just a year and a half ago. He knew that there was a salary cap. So, if we didn't get the top draft pick and Manning came back, would we have still cut all of these players. We were 14-0 just 2 years ago and in the Super Bowl. I don't believe talent drops off that quickly. Also, just because you have draft picks and young players does not make you a winning team. We will need to have incredible draft picks like Polian did in order to build a great team. Remember that in
