I miss fans rooting for the team instead of dissecting it daily and tearing it down, under the guise of "being real".

I spend more time defending my team where I use to just enjoy the game. Fans never defended their team to fellow team fans, they defended it to rival teams fans. Not so today. Now, fans in your own fanbase are far more critical than other teams fans are.

Fans today by in large, are about instant gratification, and dollars and hours spent as a fan, are now traded in for the opportunity to vent as a pay back for failed expectations. We just drafted an outstanding young man at QB and most of the talk is about how bad our online is.

Everyone acts like Andrew Luck is going to be the next Peyton Manning and that we are going to be just as dominant or more, for the next decade.

and how exactly should Colts fans act like? Think that he's going to be a bust and predict that he will fail while we cry into our Manning jerseys thinking of what was? That or maybe we shouldn't watch the Colts at all we should be getting comfy on the couch in our brand new Manning Broncos jerseys ready to watch the Broncos play whoever?

Of course Colts fans are going hope for the best for Andrew Luck. He's the Colts QB now. I don't know if everyone acts like Andrew Luck is going to be the next Peyton Manning in fact I've seen it said several times on this forum the Andrew Luck can never be the next Peyton Manning. With that said I do think fans are hopeful that Luck is going to live up to the hype around him.

I get your point you miss watching Peyton and Marvin. I missed watching Harbaugh too when Peyton first got here. No Joke Harbaugh is still my all-time favorite player but since I am a Colts fan first I supported the new QB. It doesn't mean I didn't smile when I saw the old Harbaugh highlights but nothing lasts forever. That's why we have tape so we can rewatch the guys we miss. However, things move on and if you don't move on with it you might miss something really special.

    • I don’t think I buy the QB whisperer thing either. At the very least...I need to see proof of concept on a draft pick or a really young QB before I would entertain it, instead of going back to the well (twice now). 
    • In all seriousness I kind of like this idea.  Colts trade away one of the NFL's current top centers with Kelly and replace him with another stud coming out of Alabama, a much younger version.  Obviously a risk here with Dickerson and his late season injury so why am doubling down on drafting another center for a short-term stop gap but also feel Pinter can step in right away as needed.  Other key factor is as others have pointed out going low cost draftee to fill our void at LT.  Now the Colts if they could pull this trade off might even be able to consider trading up again with say the Jets and take a QB.  Honestly still have reservations about Wentz and if he is the true long-term answer the Colts are searching for.  If not groom the young QB under Wentz for a year and cut Wentz free.   The Colts do have a lot of pending FAs to make decisions about.  With the trade scenario the Colts still have ~$9-10 million in cap space left over.  The only thing with that in mind is changing being honest and losing our 2nd draft pick and having an additional 5th round back and select a depth WR since wouldn't be getting a good WR early in Round 2.  Round 6 much rather with the extra projected cap savings on hand sign Texans LT Roderick Johnson.  At least he has experience in this Division then target LCB Tay Gowan (UCF) whom opted out this past season but is considered a sleeper this draft.   When your done being narrow-minded look the rest over and be honest see if this is doable and fills our major voids.  
    • I dont want Watt here. His health is too much of a concern. 
    • Agree probably an overreach Colts giving away our 5th Round pick.  Realistically would be more along the lines of trading Kelly and our Round 2 pick.
