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 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.

Originally from SE PA..about 80 miles from Baltimore..I grew up as a Colts fan, watching Bert Jones, Lydell Mitchell, and the "Sack Pack"

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

    • That is the thing, you can't always look at position value because there are outliers like Nelson. Of course DE is more valuable than OG but if there is an outlier like a Larry Allen or Nelson it isn't. At the time we selected Nelson we needed a major upgrade to the O.Line and to protect Luck. Had we picked 3rd, I still would've took Nelson. I just seen him as being great, one of those outliers coming out of the draft.
    • Alarming?    When the time comes, you don’t think Pittman is going to get a big contract?   You don’t think Taylor is going to get a big contract?   The answers are right in front of you, and for some odd reason, you’re not seeing it.  
    • The Colts have the cap space to sign Leonard and Smith to long-term deals this year and Nelson fortunately for us we are able to extend his 5th-year rookie contract option and post-pone his big payday a year later.   Leonard is not a true MLB so I doubt he will reset the market value at the linebacker position.  Originally thought Leonard could get a 5 year/$100 million contract with $60 million guaranteed but think it will be closer to 5 years/$82.5 million with $40 million guaranteed.   Smith am guessing closer to a 4 year/$58 million contract with $30 million guaranteed.   Depending on whom we keep/sign at left tackle I think will set the stage of how much cap space we will have left to resign players.  Do we keep an older Fisher or try to go after Viking's O'Neill (RT) and move him back to his LT position he played in college.  Both will cost a lot to retain either way and have some flexibility with O'Neill and Smith combination.   Do think Glowinski will be a cap causality since he is already on the books for $7.5 million for 2021 and expect him to make over $8 million in 2022.   The only other pending FA of note after this season to play RG Brandon Scherff but expect him to be too high priced out of the Colt range (4yr/$66 million).  So looks like OL Chris Reed might be a future option or another current OL on the roster might be able to take over.    As for the draft will have to keep in mind RG Baer Hunter from Appalachian State.  Hunter's team's OL ranked as a top-15 unit nationally that was very good at running the football.  Biggest issue have seen about Hunter from his game tapes is his a  drive killer with potential penalties with unnecessary holding and block in the backs once the play has extended past the second level.  The young man I do like best at this point in time is RG Cain Madden from Marshall.  Madden's run-blocking abilities improved form 60.3 to 74.2 from 2019/2020 and he finished top 10 among RGs.   Wouldn't be surprised next off-season if we cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut and TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m.  Some of the other FA's doubt we resign are Stallworth, Rochell, Muhammad, Carrie, Mack, Eldrenkamp, Dulin and Campbell.   After we resign Leonard and Smith to big contract extensions can see the Colts resign, MAC, Pascal, Lewis, Turray,Holden, Hunt and Reed.  Hines should also get resigned and looking at something similar to Austin Eckler contract APY $4.55 million 3 year/$13.645 million (base 3.9 million, 4.5 million, 5.65 million with 1.35 million roster bonus each year).  One FA name I like to replace Stewart with a younger improved version is Bear's IDL Bilal Nichols at best am comparing him to IDL Dalvin Tomlinson where I would offer him a 3 year/$33 million $11 million APY with $20 million signing bonus.  Again we get back either $8.125 million or $9.378 million depending on when we release Stewart under this scenario which after these movements only leaves the Colts with a projected $7-8 million in cap space currently.   Will have to do more research and play around with the futures but can envision the Colts will need to find starting WR, RG, RCB with backups at RDT, RDE, RB, FS, SS,  and TE.   Early watch list RD 1 Draft picks 2022 TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M George Pickens, WR, Georgia Drake Jackson, Edge, USC Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida   RD 2 picks Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson John Metchie III, WR, Alabama Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan          
    • If what Ballard says about a Achilles is what happens with Fisher that means he could be ready by TC. Mack looks like he might be close to 100% and he is at the 8th mark. I think they will be extra careful with Dayo. But Fisher is a vet so if he is ready he will go.  Very possible Fisher is ready week one.
    • Those shoulder pads make him look huge. Lol
