  1. There was a member, you mean... He doesn't appear to be around anymore. Do you know anything about him?
  2. I found the first Luck thread on the forum. It was started by a mysterious member named dranyam327. It was their first and only post. The topic has since been locked, but if you search for dranyam327 it'll pop up for you to look over. This was posted before any of the drama started happening surrounding Manning's injury. At that point, everyone was still fully expecting him to be ready for the season opener... So who is/was this mysterious member, who made one post

So who is/was this mysterious member, who made one post and then was kicked off for seemingly no good reason? Seems a bit fishy to me... Could it have been someone on the inside?
  4. I'd settle for a LB corps consisting of guys named John Fluff, Mike Puff, and Harold CoochieCoo, as long as they produce.
  5. I'm not sure either, but wouldn't you think that if a player opts to renegotiate his contract, that the previous contract would become totally null and void? Which would then erase that $16 mil cap hit and adjust it to whatever the new contract specifies... ????
  6. Sorry, I'm sick as a dog and not thinking straight. I should have clarified... I meant he'd have more options as far as teams interested in him if we renegotiated his contract and traded him as opposed to picking up his current contract and then trading him.
  7. Hey man, Peyton is no fool. He fully understands all of the angles concerning the situation that is transpiring between himself, his injury, the Colts, and the future of the Colts. He understands that no other team is going to be willing to pay him his current contract considering the neck problems. More than anything, Peyton wants to play and he wants to win. If his chances of doing that are better elsewhere, then I wouldn't be at all surprised if he were the one to bring up the conversation. If we picked up the option, there would be virtually no chance that any team would be willing to
  8. If I were Manning I would definitely leave for another team, but not just any team. It would have to be a solid team with a legitimate chance of making it to a Super Bowl.
  9. Nope, I just posted it here cause shakedownstreet made me think of it, then I left this topic and saw there was one titled something about Caldwell drinking Koolaid, so I figured, 'what the heck', and put it there too.
  10. Not true, there is another option. We could renegotiate his contract and then trade him. With the way that Peyton has handled his business in the past, I see every indication he would be willing to do such a thing. That way, he'd allow the Colts to get something out of him instead of taking a total loss, and he'd have more options as far as which teams he could go to. A real class move would be to see Irsay go ahead and pay him that enourmous bonus, then go ahead and trade him. Peyton deserves it, plus it'd take a bit of the heat off of Irsay for trading him.
  11. did you recently watch family guy or something?
  12. If Manning does go to another team, then I will be rooting for two teams for the first time ever. And if Manning plays against the Colts, I'll be very torn about who to root for. Especially if that meeting were in a SuperBowl...
  13. check out this article: http://www.miamihera...for-peyton.html While this article is purely speculation, it does present an interesting possibility for us. Can you imagine if we ended up with the #1 and #2 picks in the 2012 draft? If that were to happen, what would you want us to do with the picks?
  14. True, but perhaps with the size of Hightower and Upshaw at the LBs, and Mark Barron at SS, the lack of d-line size could be compensated for. Or perhaps, say we lose Mathis to free agency and sign Paul Soliai, DT from the dolphins (6'4", 355lbs). Then we could have a d-line of: DE- Drake Nevis DT- Paul Soliai DE- Dwight Freeney
  15. How about: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB from Alabama, Dont'a Hightower, ILB from Alabama, and Courtney Upshaw, OLB from Alabama. Then in the 3rd round we could take Mark Barron, SS from Alabama. That'd be pretty sweet! They are all excellent players, and they've already got the continuity thing down. We could switch to a 3-4 defense with a lineup something like this: DE- Robert Mathis DT- Drake Nevis DE- Dwight Freeney OLB- Pat Angerer ILB- Donta Hightower ILB- Courtney Upshaw OLB- Kavell Conner/Jerry Hughes CB- Dre Kirkpatrick SS- Mark Barron FS- Antoine Bethea CB- Jerrod Powers Thoughts?
  16. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/campusrivalry/post/2011/11/oklahoma-ryan-broyles-knee-injury-out-for-season/1 I really had an eye on this guy as a good 2nd or 3rd round pick for us in April. He's an extremely talented receiver, good speed, precise route running, very good after the catch, and also an excellent kick returner. I hope he fully recovers and then maybe we can steal him in the 4th or 5th round.
  17. I would take: Justin Blackmon, Cordy Glenn, and Kelechi Osemele. This gives us our next elite WR for the next decade, and two mammoth top notch OGs to go along with our prize OTs we picked up in last year's draft. Then in the 3rd or 4th round we can pick up Ben Jones, C from Georgia, who has been playing alongside Cordy Glenn for the last several years. This will give us the makings of what could very likely be the best O-line in the league for many years to come! Glenn and Osemele are both 345 lbs plus! Imagine the running lanes! We can address our defensive needs via free agency, with p
  18. Feedback, cool... I must tell everyone that I was fully aware of the ludacris nature of this post, but was compelled to do it. See, I think I might have a problem. I've formed a habit... I've been watching the Colts pretty much religiously since like 1987, and am obviously a diehard fan. These last 10 years or so I've gotten hooked on the endorphins that my hypothalamus produces while watching our Colts dominate the rest of the league. All those amazing performances, those Manning-lead comebacks, the glory, the pride... I'm an addict for that Colts junk! Right now, I'm living in the wa
  19. Alright, are you ready for part 18 trillion in the 'the Colts should make this or that trade and/or draft these or those players' series? Hold tight, this might get a little weird, here we go: Let's say Manning comes back and practices towards the end of the season, maybe even gets a little game time. He shows every indication that he'll return to his old form. We finish 1-15 with the rights to the first pick in the upcoming draft. The 2012 NFL league year rolls around and we make the following moves: Let Walk: Reggie Wayne, Robert Mathis, Anthony Gonzales, Pierre Garcon, Jeff Saturday,
  20. Dude, have the sense to realize when you've made a fool of yourself and it's time to retreat with your tail between your legs.
