I live in Western Illinios. Been a Colts fan since '84. I was more of a Cowboys fan from '79(when I started following NFL at age 10) till Jerry Jones bought the team. Then I kind of bounced around Liking Seattle, New Orleans, New England, Indy, and Atlanta. Everyone around here is a Bears or Packers fan. I hated following the crowd so I follow other teams. I settled on the Colts when they Drafted Jeff George(from Ill) and Atlanta(liked IronHead Heyward). Now still like Atlanta(they are the Colts from 1999-2005 trying to win in the playoffs after cruising through the regular season). Will always root for the Colts over Atlanta when they play.

Southern California....  

 

About 30 miles NW of downtown Los Angeles.

 

As a longtime Stanford fan, I've been a Colts fan since they selected Andrew Luck.  (Fleener was an added bonus!)

 

I expect to remain a Colts fan as long as Luck is with the franchise.

 

I also really, really like the Irsay/Grigson/Pagano leadership at the top.    A well run franchise makes all the difference.

 

Sorry,  this was perhaps more than you wanted to know.....      :hide:

I think we'll infect you and you'll be a Colt for life.

I have lived in Mississippi my whole life, but I now work in Memphis, TN.  Back in the Unitas days, our small town's dept store had 1 football uniform left and it was Johnny Unitas Baltimore Colts one...full replica uniform with pads, pants, jersey and helmet.   My father bought it for me for Christmas and I became an instant fan.  I would cry (I was a kid) when they lost and I would go outside and kick the football for hours if we won.  When they moved to Indy, I followed them because they were still the Colts and had that beautiful helmet and uni that I loved.  I also liked the Larry Csonka Dolphins and the Montanna/Rice 49ers, but never more than the Colts.

Born and raised in NY,

 

My colts fan-hood came from  my cousin (also born and raised in NY) who's uncle grew up in Indianapolis.

 

Both of our immediate families were not football fans, I kinda wish my parents were football fans like I am. I would have made a great OLB/DE, but I got into it too late :(

I was born in Indiana and lived here all of my life outside of a few yrs. when I was in the military in New Jersey and Germany, but am always interested in hearing from fans from other parts of the country or world. It's great that we have such a diverse and international fanbase.

Technically, I live in Indiana, however, living in NWI is like living in Chicago. All Bear fans up here, so I get looked at weird when wearing my Colts gear.

Thats how it is here in florida where im at lol. i live closer to the georgia border so most of the NFL fans here are falcon fans, and they give the ones who are dolphin or buc fans the dirtiest looks. almost the same kinda looks i get for being a Gator fan opposed to being a bulldog fan lol.

I live in Ohio, but actually it's only a two hour drive to Lucas Oil...   so I don't really consider myself that much of an out-of-towner  :P

 

Love the :coltslogo:

My dad played HS Football with Jeff Georges brother Dave at warren central. actually he has a picture of him dave and jeff together. dont know how old jeff was, had to be like 10 because Jeff won the state championship at WCHS in 84 i think it was.

I live in the "forgotten" part of Indiana(SW Indiana) with no direct connection to Indy so you have a shorter drive to Indy than I do.

Mostly Bears fans, yes, but I've run across a surprising number of Colts fans in The Region.

haha i feel you! I live in Florida. I remember my cousin was like "i always wondered why you always talk about indy". It's funny when i tell people im from Indy, I was born in Indianapolis but moved like 2 weeks after so i never have been able to see the city but I represent Indy all the time and I'm proud being from indy. Hopefully one day i will visit

    • We shall see. I think if he does anything close to what Lewis did last year he will stick. Lewis wasnt incredible but he did show the tools they thought he had when they drafted him. We need that same thing from Banogou this year or its probably curtains.
    • And as announcers have said, at home we swept, Mets, Dodgers, Padres, and Cardinals. Need reds to be help this week against brewers    And tomorrow starts a series with the Mets in NY. @NFLfan are you going to go to any of them? I saw the tickets were cheap.    I am going to the Marlins Cards game on Tuesday, close to home, in the second section from home. Will be my 5th game there this season. 7th overall   And will give a recap of AZ tomorrow, since I got back   
    • Agree with most of this, but Tannehill's accuracy was never really an issue. Those Miami teams he played for were just bad lol. Some horrible OLs. They finally started building the team correctly, and even Fitzmagic looked good.   Looks like TN is going all-in a bit for the next couple years, so wouldn't be surprised to see their O ask more from Tannehill. Running the wheels off Henry will only get you so far.
    • I wasn't big on landing Wentz but having said that sometimes a change of scenery can change a QB's career. Get with the right team = great run game, good coach than many things can change. There wasn't anyone that ever mentioned Ryan Tannehill as a top 15 QB when he played for the Dolphins, he was considered average by most and many Dolphins fans thought he was bad. Look at him in Tennessee though with Henry and better coaching. He went from average at best to good in most peoples minds. His accuracy is a lot better in Tennessee and with Henry being the focal point that allows Tannehill to make less mistakes and use play action effectively.    In reality, Wentz even has more physical tools than Tannehill has.
