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.

    • Here's the Lions team needs (farther below), so Oke would fit the bill. Given his performance and PFF though this year, not sure he'd be something that tilted the scale. If Carolina, Denver, Dallas, or San Fran wanted to be players, we'd have to make up a decent delta between draft picks. So for instance, if Detroit's asking price is a first, and next year's second,   San Fran's #12 is basically worth our #12 AND our #54 out of the gate. And we'd still have to give them next year's 2nd. Oke isn't worth a #54 IMO. Rock might perk their interests given CB is a primary need. It's a decent draft for CBs, so not sure he'd close the gap either. Also something to consider, Detroit's cap space is about zero. They'd save of course 20ish by letting Stafford go, but still won't be looking to spend big (so our rooks, on rook deals, might be attractive).   Primary - QB, WR, CB Secondary - LB, IDL, OT, LB, IDL Ancillary - WR, S, EDGE No need - TE, RB   Here are the teams and draft pick that could be looking for a QB before us 8 Carolina 9 Denver 10 Dallas 11 NYG 12 San Fran 15 Pats 19 Wash 20 Chicago   Bears and Giants are in the negative on cap space, Panthers don't have a much (5.5). San Fran 9.3, but they'd save by cutting Jimmy.
    • Another Maryland Terp Alumni. Maybe Boomer Eisiason is the next hire !
    • i disagree with the adjective "very", and also think he'd need tier 1 WRs, which the Colts don't have. He's just way to limited. 
    • As I said, the biggest mistake was the lack of stadium. We should have built it for Rosenbloom, but once they traded franchises , they should have built one for Irsay. That was the main point, it was all about money and revenue.  I believe Irsay would have moved eminent domain , or not. The reason Baltimore brought eminent domain is because they thought it was a done deal that he was going to move, based on the negotiations he and Chernoff were having in numerous cities. You have to also remember he was still making money in Baltimore, just not as much as he possibly could in another city. The attendance was depressed because of the product on the field , destroying the mid- seventies teams, Elway, the helicopter drop in at Jacksonville, etc. I’m not defending eminent domain , but just explaining what led up to it, as well as low Colt attendance at the time.   
    • It’s not that it could get to expensive but niners have a  higher pick and they could easily throw next years one in there too with the team they already have. This is where could the colts throw a guy like Okereke in there.
