Houston writer rips Indy fans and Luck

Recommended Posts

He's a writer trying to make a name for himself (and franly threads like this help that) and you don't make a name for yourself by writing stuff that everyone agrees with. With that said it's clearly that just about everything he said is at best twisted if not flat out wrong at times but I can see what he's trying to do which is why i think the best thing to do is just ignore it. That's how you make stuff and writers like this guy go away.

"No. 18? Who's that?...Nothing’s been accomplished yet. Andrew Luck is still much more myth than reality at this point...To so completely disregard the memory of Peyton Manning for that is pretty classless and even more clueless...Indianapolis isn’t a regular in the Super Bowl rotation because of Andrew Luck. That’s all Peyton. This town should know better. Its bit of giddy amnesia is more than a little unsettling."

Look, I can appreciate what Chris Baldwin is saying about how quickly HOF legends can sometimes feel non-existant in city's that they no longer play in or for. But, come on Mr. Baldwin, Peyton Manning is in Denver now & our new field general in INDY Andrew Luck is the real deal. Time to show some respect to Luck & flip the page okay. Peyton will always be a beloved icon in Indianapolis that will never change IMO.

Although, in the interest of full disclose, I was amazed how quickly prices dropped on the jerseys of Manning, Saturday, Brackett, and Clark plummeted after all these athletes were gone from the Blue Horseshoe. I could have saved a ton of money if I had just waited...Oh well... haha

Some journalists deal with facts, some deal with speculation, & some just stir the the pot just to get a rise out of people...

The quickest way to rise to the top in the profession of the press say something controversial...Paging Mr. Baldwin...Line 1...Way to "Stir It Up" Mr. Baldwin... :sigh:

It's a timely article considering the Houston game is coming up in about 2 weeks. Guy is stirring the pot big time!

He's stirring our emotions up because he knows the Houston game is right around the corner. He's doing the same "diss/downplay Luck" thing the Patriots writers were doing before the game was played.

I wouldn't get too riled up about it.

Good point manning04! When a major hospital is named after #18, amnesia as an argument for a HOF QB legend doesn't hold any water or carry any weight at all. :hat:

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:

They tore him a new 1, I tried to chime in too but for whatever reason wouldn't let me.

I was able to chine in. . . I had to sign in with my fb or twitter.

I called him out for having to defend his article in the comments section.

I guess if he gets hits then mission accomplished. If he was trying to be a journalist he gets the face palm with a side of epic fail! :facepalm:

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle is the only guy to read for Texans and other NFL articles in Houston.

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

True That!

In the words of Jon McClaine, "You're the wrong guy at the wrong place, at the wrong time! Story of my life" Mr. Baldwin...What? There's a different John McClain? Sorry about that...The line still works beautifully though IMO. No QuizBoy, you're absolutely right this guy is not a credit to his profession unless he starts working for the tabloid press that is...Yikes!

Was that article released in printed format too?

Then trees were chopped down in vain again.

Yeah HCF, save the planet, protect the trees, and rid the planet of dangerous toxins in 1 fowl swoop: Fire Mr. Baldwin immediately. :rock:

I'll sign that petition right now. __X____[sW1] X marks the spot...

If he'd actually ever been to a Colts game he would have noted the large amount of people who still wear Manning jerseys. He's just a Houston fan, a decade of playoff hopes going up in smoke thanks to one team can certainly bring the hate out of anyone. Let him hate, only get's me more pumped for when next these teams meet.

Yes, your are correct funktacious2. But, I must give credit to both Vance87 & QuizBoy on here, 2 friends of mine on this site that claim the Texans as their #1 NFL team, even they admit that Mr. Baldwin is a huge pile of elephant dung & not viewed as a serious journalist in the greater Houston area overall & that speaks volumes to me personally. What it says isn't honorable or exactly flattering either...

But hey, what better way to save the trees than to provide fertilizer and fresh mulching material for new trees & plants to grow right? Everybody wins! haha

That article was horrible. How did that guy even land a job talking about sports at all. The comments were way more thought out, written, and hilarious.

Looking at their staff page he's the managing editor so I guess he doesn't have to justify himself to anyone. I'd imagine he more than likely owns part of the site so in fact all these extra hits are putting money in his pocket. He's a sly one.

There's a reasons editors shouldn't write articles :P

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

As much as I want to say he is (because i feel a bit biased) hes not this year. As Luck gets more experience i believe he will be. I still think Schaub is a top 10 qb.

Most of us on here rip people / teams / players /posters / towns / other sports / coaches to shreads on a regular basis. Yet when we read something we don't like, we get all offended. Double standard at its best, me thinks.....

And anyway, who cares what anybody from Houston says?

Right now I'd say top 10 QB's are (This year)

1.Drew Brees

2.Matt Ryan

3.Tom Brady

4.Peyton Manning

5.Matt Schaub

6.Aaron Rodgers

7.Carson Palmer

8.Joe Flacco

9.Tony Romo

10.Andrew Luck

overall though I'd say Schaub is top 7-8 QB who is capable of MVP type numbers and leading the league in yards passing

Most of us on here aren't paid journalists who you would hope as professionals would worry about things like research or objectivity.

Actually what am I saying, standards in the media died long ago.

I love the comment by one Texans fan who said Lucks success is due to an easy schedule when the Texans basically have the exact same schedule...

I love how both Manning and Luck are successful which kind of blows that argument out of the water considering most true blue Colts fans still love Manning and are happy with Luck. Both are having success so the article basically boils down to garbage.

Ha ha thank you, into the 3rd round with the big boys now.

You're right in that he's just a hack and most likely just playing to generate this sort of reaction.

Yep, quite possibly. We will have to wait and see though. Hopefully Schaub has 3 rings already by the time 12 starts to light the league up though. :goodluck:

can't get 3 rings in 2 years. :P

It helps going from a 1st ballot hall of famer to someone who is deemed a once-in-a-generation talent. Easy to get swept up. Plus what's wrong with backing the guy with the horseshoe still on his helmet? Still I'm curious now - is Favre still remembered in Green Bay, or does everyone have Rodgers fever - to the extent that the article implies about Indy anyway? Was Montana "disrespected" by Frisco when Young took over? I'm not close to any of those other cities, so no idea what the general mindset is. I can't imagine though that they've completely disregarded Montana and Favre, just like I don't think you can completely disregard Peyton.

I'm no Packers fan but I'm sure it would be hard for the fans there to forget Brett Favre...man is a legend. Same for Montana, who some consider the best of all time. I don't think anyone has completely disregarded Manning, though many are jumping on the bandwagon for 12 very easily and even mentioning that he is not perfect will warrant a flame war lol.

Maybe all he has to go by are these forums?

As for actual fans that live in Indy, I'm not sure if its a fair assessment. I can only hope that the available seats at LOS are fans that gave up the tix because they were disgusted by the decision, and if thats the case then the article may not be as accurate.

But since i don't live in Indy, all I have are these forums to go by and based on some comments made on these forums I can draw a direct comparison to the comments made in the article and the sentiment implied here by many forum members.

    • Another NFL Preseason Game Night, Colts fans!    A battle of  0-2  teams  seeking their first win in the 2019 NFL preseason play in Circle City, as the Chicago Bears come south on Interstate 65,  to play our Indianapolis Colts in both teams preseason meeting in four years.    Chad Kelly and Phillip Walker are the only other Colts quarterbacks available,  both listed in the training camp roster, and the team depth chart, probably available to play tonight, since neither Jacoby Brissett or Andrew Luck will play the rest of the preseason.   Current Bears Defensive Coordinator Chuck Pagano also returns to Indianapolis, where was the Colts Head Coach from 2012-2017.   Indianapolis and Chicago are playing their 16th all-time preseason game, with the Colts leading the all-time preseason series between the teams at 9-5-1.  Colts defeated the Bears in their last game, and visit to Indianapolis by the score of 23-11 back on August 22, 2015.   Indianapolis also  currently leads the all-time regular season series at 23-11, including  winning Super Bowl XLI over the Bears, their only playoff win  over Chicago.  Colts also defeated the Bears, winning 29-23, during both teams last regular season meeting also played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building),  back on October 9, 2016.   Colts may play the Bears at Soldier Field, when the AFC South teams play the NFC North teams during interdivisional play in the 2020 NFL regular season.   Colts defeated the Bears  29-17 in Super Bowl XLI, during  the rainy, and then-named at the time, Dolphins Stadium At Miami Gardens, back on February 4, 2007.   The 2006 Colts team that finished 12-4 during the regular season were lead by  Head Coach Tony Dungy, and Super Bowl XLI MVP  QB Peyton Manning.   LOS's retractable roof might be open for tonight's 7:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because the local gamecast around the stadium area is 75 degrees, 0% precipitation, 52% humidity, and  east/northeast winds at 11 miles per hour.   Great luck to all the Colts and Bears players, especially the backup players and reserves, as they continue to audition during their  training bears-week-3-camp, and the preseason games, on trying to make the cut to the final 53.   NO injuries, GO Blue Horseshoe, Win Your First Preseason Game, And Home Game In Your 2019 NFL Season, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!                 .    https://colts.com/news/bears-week-3-preseason-preview   https://colts.com/game-day/2019/pre/bears-at-colts/   https://nfl.com/gamecenter/2019082452/2019/PRE3/bears@colts   https://indystar.com/sports/colts   https://chicagobears.com/news/pagano-expects-an-emotional-return-to-Indy  
    • Tom Brady wanted to trademark the nickname "Tom Terrific".    He lost.  The US Patent and Trademark office rejected Brady's request to trademark the term. Brady says he was trying to protect Tom Seaver's nickname. Lolol. Spare me, Brady.    “Has anyone ever even called him ‘Tom Terrific’?” Mr. Talansky said. “Was ‘Vainglorious Cheater’ already trademarked?”   Tom Brady Is No ‘Tom Terrific.’ Any New Yorker Can Tell You That. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/nyregion/tom-brady-seaver-terrific.html  
    • Bummer that all the starters are out! I’m going with a group of friends, including some Bears fans(Boo!). Alot of people on here saying they feel bad for people going and that it’s too much money to go watch scrubs....Going to a game at Lucas is more then just watching the game. It’s about tailgating, hanging out with good friends and having a good time, razzing the opposing teams fans, all in fun of course, and also hanging out with fellow bleed blue colts fans! Same reason I went to watch the Cubs even during the bad years, the atmosphere and fans were awesome no matter what. I don’t really mind watching the second and third stringers fighting for their futures.    As far as price, I got a pretty good seat for $48, so can’t complain. It’s going to be a fun day no matter what, not going in with high expectations like I do during regular season.
    • Well, you are rounding into mid-season form early this year. Good Job 
    • Walker did look much better last game compared to week 1, so props to him. Still, no comparison to CK. I had mixed emotions about bringing CK in, but now I really hope things work out. He looks "in command" and has a nice rhythm to his game. And he can make all the passes and has wheels.     I know it's only 2 preseason games, but I can understand now why Elway made him QB2 in Denver. It'll make parting with JB much easier.    IF he can keep his head on straight/.
