Houston writer rips Indy fans and Luck

Recommended Posts

I stopped reading when I saw the following: Luck is a game manager.

Look up game manager in a thesaurus. Andrew Luck is the antonym.

Indianapolis is a minor league town? Well, if this writer is forced to follow the Astros, he certainly knows what a minor league team looks like.

He just realizes that in 2 yrs. the Colts and Luck will own them again so he needed to get in his shot before that happens so at least a few people don't think he's an *, which he obviously is. That was the single worst piece of so called journalism ever posted on this forum.

I get why we may not be the must popular team with the Texan's fans but its still no excuse for poor journalism. It made Skip look like the paragon of integrity and virtue.

I know, and agree, the guy is obviously not a professional lol.

More like he needs to see a professional.

It really does irk me when people just spew bitter bile. Sport should bring people together, sure you can have rivalries but they don't have to solely negative. Poke fun at them, boo them, feel smug when they lose, relish the victory over them but don't resort to bare naked hate. To the dark side that leads.

I don't think the writer went as far as that but chip on the shoulder is a mild description.

You know your a hack "journalist" (using the term as losely as possible) when you have to go into the comments left for you to fight people.

Just scrolled through and he responded to every 4 or 5th post with trollish comments you wouldn't even see on a message board.

Yikes.

LOL, even Paul Kuharsky of ESPN responded-

"how is this working out for you chief?"

lmao:td:

On second thoughts though maybe he really is a sly one. Trashing Luck and opening up the wounds over Peyton, guaranteed to get a strong reaction (and twitter trend!).

I just got Skip'd :(

Probably because after they were done there was nothing left. Can't rip him a new one since they ripped him to shreds haha.

Wow. Perhaps someone is made that his team isn't getting all the attention the division has to offer. And Luck has transitioned from a game manager to a qb who wins games. He is better than Schaub in almost every statistical category, and oh yeah, HE'S A ROOKIE. No one in Indy says bad word number one about the great Peyton Manning and what he has done for the franchise and the city, and would be foolish to do so. But does this guy expect the entire town to transition to being Broncos fans!? It's ridiculous. If any team had a rookie qb like this, they would and should be excited. I bet the craze in DC is fare more intense, and they're not even winning games. This guy sucks.

When people talk like this (the writer of article) what's really coming out of their deepest being is that he FEARS LUCK AND

THE COLTS!!! OF WHAT NIGHTMARE IS ABOUT TO BECOME TO HIM!!! SO DON'T WAKE OF UP BECAUSE WHEN YOU DO

YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE IS COMING UPON YOU AND JUST MIGHT GIVE YOU A HEART-ATTACK!!!!

First comment by Bob Smith sums it up nicely....

What are we supposed to do, cancel the games on Sunday and hold a sermon in the middle of the stadium so we can praise Peyton for his years here? Not many people are bigger Peyton fan boys than myself, but it's hard to not be exited about the future of Colts football.

He's not putting up gaudy TD numbers, but anyone that watches the game knows, he's doing a ton to keep us in these games. His ability to extend a play because McGlynn let his man swim move by him is second to none.

Crap article.

Well someone knows how to make a desperate cry for attention I see because thats all that article was a way of getting attention to himself and further columns he writes. It happens all over the place with a wide variety of topics with all kinds of writers,

Okay the article was bad but let's not take things too far. Luck is not better than Schaub.

I could understand where the guy who wrote this was coming from...

But all in all, an inaccurate story. I still have a Peyton Manning jersey hanging very neatly in my closet.

And the title is very misleading too, talking about how Peyton Manning is disrespected by Luck. When the reporter never spoke to Manning to get his thoughts about Luck and the city of Indy.

This is just another story about a guy in Houston trying to make a name for himself by trying to bash the Colts and Indy.

Honestly the guy is a troll and for that he gets a 6/10 for mildly rustling my jimmies.

I just spit my coffee out over that remark QuizBoy and knew you would have a reply and should have. :thmup: Maybe that is a new member's typical first post. :monkeydance:

Houston is just bitter because their time on top will be short lived.

While I believe you are wrong anyway, this man in no way represents the city of Houston...

Sounds to me like this writer may be afraid of the future and wants to get the digs in while it is still possible.

That would be dumb as well, I'll send him a dead crow with a fork and knife via UPS.

I feel dumber for having read that article....

Would he rather the fan base here whine and cry that Manning is gone?

Luck is a rookie QB on a team that is in a position to make the playoffs after going 2-14 last year. Why wouldn't the fan base get behind him and move on with this new era of Colts football???

This guy is a joke. He wrote on draft night how we would regret taking JJ Watt instead of Nick Fairley.

http://houston.cultu...-houston-lover/

He writes for 'culture map houston'...which is like...one step above an airline magazine. Just saying.

Thanks, I was wondering if this was the 'bleacher report' version of a travel mag.

No mark Sanchez is a game manager. Luck is far from that.

    • People don’t realize it’s not what you say it’s how you say it. That’s what I mean. Believe it or not I don’t mind people talking about how he needs to improve or what he is doing wrong. I think it all just needs to be put in more context. There are a lot of factors that goes into the lack of passing yards. It’s not all JB. Is some of it. Yes. But there are lots reasons. There is no doubt the passing yards needs to improve. That goes on the entire offense. Not just JB. He needs to improve and so do the young recievers. Ebron needs to catch balls. There is no one reason with the lack of pass yards.
    • I don’t think drops this year has played a huge difference. The only game where it might of made a difference was the raiders game.  Which was kind of sad because winning a game without TY would of been really impressive for him.
    • This. Why would a poster be in trouble for expressing an opinion?
    • Not sure what you are talking about. Trouble?
    • It'll be really interesting to see how consistent our run game will be week to week after teams begin to focus on it more. The Raiders particularly did a really good job with their gameplan against us. Personally, the more carries Wilkins gets as opposed to Hines, the better off I think they'll be. If it wasn't for Wilkins we wouldn't have gotten anything going against the Titans. Houston will be a good test. I think they have the best run defense of our remaining opponents.
