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.

    • OK....    here we go....    my list is not to be taken as complete,  but it's as much as I could find after doing a number of searches...   I'm sure I may have missed a player here or there...   I used the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a reference.    I tried not to go back too far.   So, I won't have guys like Butkus, or Nitzchke or Nobis...     they didn't have good medical, training, nutrition, etc.   So,  I went mostly with guys who have played since 2000...    but there are some who were drafted in the mid-90's and whose career extended into the 2000's....    This list is not ALL linebackers, just most of the top ones.    I did not include outside linebackers.    But I can make another list if you like..   Middle or Inside Backers.   1.  Patrick Willis       https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/W/WillPa98.htm 2.  Navarro Bowman https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BowmNa99.htm 3.  Jarrod Mayo https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/M/MayoJe99.htm 4.  Brian Urlacher https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/U/UrlaBr00.htm 5.  Sean Lee https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/L/LeexSe99.htm 6.  Jon Beason https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BeasJo99.htm 7.  Brian Cushing https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/C/CushBr99.htm 8.  Jonathon Vilma https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/V/VilmJo99.htm 9.  DQWell Jackson https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/J/JackDQ20.htm 10.   Bart Scott https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/S/ScotBa20.htm 11.   David Harris https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/H/HarrDa99.htm 12.   Keith Bullock https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BullKe00.htm    
    • I don’t care if you find my “sad” reactions are weak.    I find your views of the Colts....   unique.    Makes me wonder how many games you were actually able to view last year?   As for your claims of using facts and data....  don’t forget opinion.   You live yours (which’s fine),  but sometimes you think your opinion is fact.   Those have drawn some of my sad faces...  and even some laughing faces too.    Camp starts in a week...   plenty for you to opine on....     
    • Amen brother.   I'm lighting candles nightly too.
    • I am just happy there seems to be an increase in our teams health. It is something to be happy about.
    • @NewColtsFan   is your "sad" "reaction" a disagreement to most of my posts?    if so, feel free to challenge with a reply. you're constant "sad" faces are pretty weak. happy to debate with fact and data.
