Alright, let's just temper our expectations for this season. Things will get better. I'll be the billionth person to remind you all that Manning went 3-13 his first year.

Its got nothing to do with PM or Luck its got to do with poor officiating and poor coaching desicions IMO

Well, we can't do anything about the officiating, Chuck Pagano is a rookie head coach, and I got two words for you - the first is Jim, the second is Mora.

Be patient.

The thing killing the Colts is this horrible, second-half play calling! Two games in a row, now. We CANNOT run the football, nor stop the run like the Ravens or Steelers! It's completely dumb to think with our current OL and DL players, we could be a power running team, or stuff the run. A great offensive coordinator, like Tom Moore, would realize this, and run the offense not based on his pride, but rather according to his current players' talent. Our defense is horrible, so run the score up on offense, rather than go into hermit-mode and run multiple times in a row and punt. How about some bump-n-run from our corners, instead of leaving an eight yard cushion?! The only WRs being jammed and rerouted on the field, are OUR WRs! Colts should have won this game. Against horrible offensive play calling and a bone-headed penalty on a FG attempt, Luck is trying to win games. Can someone on this team help him out, instead of getting in his way?!

I had no problem with those 3 run plays at the end it forced Jacksonville to burn all three of there timeouts, we could have taken a shot on 3rd down and 8 sure but that would have been the predictable call, ok lets say we go for it and throw on 3rd down and throw it in the end zone and get a touchdown that still would have left Jacksonville with over a minute on the clock and 1 timeout

Agree 100% when are they going to let luck play his game ? Arians is holding him back in my opinion.

Conservative play calling is killing them. I can't say that enough.

When they start becoming more aggressive is when they start winning more games.

Erm... say what?

Ok, sorry, I engaged in a little hyperbole that I thought would be obvious to anyone who read it. But be honest, in this day and age, did anyone honestly expect our defense to hold a 1 point lead with over a minute to go? May as well go for the first down

    • The uniforms we wore when we beat the Bears in SB 41. = White away with blue numbers!
    • At least you didn’t become a Steelers fan ! As far as the throwback, he literally put merchandise in the team shop saying Baltimore Colts ! The ultimate throwback ! To your point that the fans weren’t interested in the Colts, that’s not quite true . Attendance was down because of poor product at the time, but that happens in most cities. As usual, it was an owner versus the city for a better stadium and revenue , and the fans get run over in the process.  As far as acknowledging Baltimore, the point is acknowledging the history correctly as it was at the time. That’s all I’m saying. The fans and the Ravens never abandoned the Baltimore Colts legacy. If the fan base didn’t care, you wouldn’t have the Unitas statue, Baltimore Colts in the Ravens ring of honor, or the Super Bowl 5 trophy here. We also use the old Baltimore Colt fight song , for the Ravens, with slightly different lyrics, and the old Colt marching band is now the fighting Ravens. We’ve had a lot of old Baltimore Colts like Bruce Laird, Tom Matte, and Stan White covering Ravens games on TV and radio. Many of us own a lot of old Colts memorabilia. So the fans do care.  So to us, the Baltimore Colts is our throwback history even though the NFL doesn’t say that.  I get where you are coming from, but to me, it was Baltimore Colts fan, 12 years in the desert, Baltimore Ravens fan. I have a lot of respect for the Indy Colts history post 1984. Good city, good fans, their own unique history.  I’m not against Indy putting together a Baltimore Colts throwback night or uniform, but don’t time travel Deforest Buckner back to 1956 in clumsy promos  ! At least you had Lenny there at the stadium. That was more appropriate. 
    • And you have beaten it to DEATH Twice over, yes you have written enough for a book, and haven't moved the needle one iota.   Frank IS Frank so as long as he is the coach many more needleless books to follow.   It is very unfortunate for you Frank is our coach. We must all be hoping we get even an Average D, so that winning more of these close games can help unload the steam from your offensive guru boiler. Yes we know your not a guru, i just wanted to spark another 500 words for the fun of it.  It is amazing Frank is putting up this many PPG ALREADY with this QB and modest receiving core. What fun it would be if we had 4th-5th year TY.   You wouldn't be saying Squat about the play calling!!!  If Bo thought he knew defense, it would have been 10,000 words complaining about Flus. Flus is developing pass rushers, has a weak set in the d backfield, and is killing it with turnovers. Wait till 22 to see what Ballard does to help our seive of a D.
    • I kept my i on him in pre-season. At guard he was knocking guys back and maintaining contact very well. Had some bully in him. Potential as a center also. Kelly isn't irreplaceable. By a players year 3, thinking Pinter and Fries, they should be prepared for solid starter duty if they ever will be.
