Baltimore Colts Logo

Recommended Posts

Is there a reason we've been wearing it allot lately? Is it the anniversary or something? I one the logo. I bought a shirt with it once my size and it was still huge on me.

I'm sure Ravens fans are mad that we are wearing that logo but I love it. (Even though I'm from Maryland) lol.

I am guessing you are referring to the logo on the sweatshirts that some are wearing on the sidelines.  It is just a logo that has been available for some time now.

Que?

 

Are you talking about the horse again? It's a Colts logo .The Colts are the Colts are the Colts (Old Crow's odd ramblings aside).

 

If you see them using a logo with the word "Baltimore" on it - let me know.

Pagano also wore it. Noticed it in the post-game video from the Titans game.

I have seen a lot of those hoodies with the throwback logo on the sideline of the Colts. I would love to have one of these.

I love it. $68 for a hoodie is ridiculous though

..

But rule#1 is to never buy a jersey, shirt, hoodie, or jacket unless the logo or design is screen printed or stitched. Or it won't last long.

I bought a nike shirt and after 10 washes the design is tearing apart. It sucks considering I paid 30 for it

It's a throwback thing. The Pats also bring out their old logo from time to time, the Saints love flashing the old state logo, seems the Titans like rubbing in the old Oilers logo too from time to time.

 

 

 

 

Always thought this was a neat logo, could be updated, would make awesome throwback jackets.

When the Colts moved they retained all Franchise Properties, the only things they left behind were hurt feelings and a band with no team to play for.

 

I started out as a Baltimore Colts fan, and have mixed feelings still.

Now I am 100% Indianapolis Colts fan, life goes on.

It's not a Baltimore Colts logo, it the Colts logo. When the Colts moved, they retained the rights to everything Colts. I don't see anyone starting a thread about the "Baltimore Colts Horseshoe", why start one about this?

What do you want me to say ? You guys know I don't like it. I feel sorry for the poor sap in Baltimore that came up with the cool logos and Colts name and now has to see it in Indy.

I think we should have a sweat-shirt with Mayflower vans on it with a skyline of Baltimore, then an arrow with the Mayflower vans right in between, then the arrow ends with a skyline of Indianapolis.  Now that would be classic!!!!!!

I get all the franchise stuff where Irsay owns all the logos, but can't you people in Indianapolis come up with something original on your own, and stop trading off the old Baltimore Colts history ? They sell these caps in Baltimore, but I wouldn't buy it if it didn't have Baltimore on it. Otherwise , it's not a real throwback.

Next we'll be seeing t- shirts from Super Bowl 5 saying Indianapolis 16 Dallas 13 ! Don't let history get in the way of revisionism !

The reason is they want to go back to the most successful 30 years of Colts history that happened in Baltimore. There were more titles and Hall of Famers during that era, than the current era. They want to link this logo from the golden age of Colts football, to the current one, but it's a meaningless , empty logo without the Baltimore in front of it. When people see that logo , they think the 1950's and 1960's Baltimore Colts. It would be like the LA Dodgers bringing back the Brooklyn hats as if it all happened in LA. Just preposterous.

I don't see how you can say we trade off of the Baltimore history. Now when it comes to records and logos, those belong to the Colts, not to any city. But it's not like you can go into the pro shop here and find replica gear for any of the old Baltimore Colts greats. Even the SB XLI championship rings reference it as the first Indy championship.

Personally, I couldn't care less about the Baltimore Colts. I feel no connection to them. That said, there are many older fans who have followed the team since the Baltimore days.

Why should the people of Indianapolis have to come up with something original on their own? Don't try to fix something that's not broken. And even with that being said, I would take it as a compliment. It's obviously a testament to the people of Baltimore that they did a good job with thinking of a classic logo...hence it's still in use. I will give credit to Baltimore, though, for not adopting the Browns logos/colors..and coming up with the Ravens idea and such....

 

 

....however, I don't think even Helen Keller herself would have kept those egregiously looking Browns jerseys/logos.

Me too, the only dislike I every had for the Colts was for Robert Irsay and his first GM Joe Thomas. They were both a piece  of work.

Can I ask who it is you're mad at?

Personally, I was only seven when the trucks rolled into town and I have no particular attachment to what happened before 1984. Well, other than Elway giving the team a big "*."

I don't think any of the citizens of Indianapolis are particularly invested in stealing any history from you.

The never ending debate! Oh goodie.

 

I actually would prefer that the Colts didn't use it, because it is Bmore era. I'll give it that.

 

 

I'm more concerned that the Browns are never going to use the creepy football elf again. That keeps me up at night,

I'm from VA (I also wasn't alive when the Colts were in Baltimore).  That said the particular logo in question is my favorite sports logo of all time.

When the Colts took the colors and horseshoe logo from Texas no one whined. Don't let history get in the way of seeing the bigger picture.

Good lord , can't you ever give it a rest? The owner of the franchise, which, believe it or not wasn't you or the city of Baltimore, decided to move to Indy......get over it.

    • Out of curiosity, who do you think will be starting over Okereke?  I think we'll see a lot of dime/nickel packages which will make him or Walker come out of the game.. but if I had to guess, I'd think the starting LBs this year will be Leonard, Walker and Bobby O (I think he's certainly capable of being an upgrade to Adams or Franklin -- and right now, https://www.colts.com/team/depth-chart#scroll-defense, the depth chart has him listed as our starting SAM).     Rivers has played with Sproles and Ekeler and utilized them both very well... I think Reich said something about Hines having potential to develop into a Sproles-like player when he was first drafted.. I expect Hines and Rivers will form a solid bond and we'll see Hines (and Campbell) as kind of all-purpose guys on this offense.     If he wasn't a pro-athlete and his uncle wasn't a HOFer, nobody would talk about what Kelly did.  Not saying it's right or wrong, but I imagine many posters on this board have gotten drunk and did something stupid or regrettable at least once in their life time.         Not sure how old you are, but I highly doubt you went through the ages of 18-22 without doing something questionable.  You probably weren't a D-1 football player with a HOF Uncle, so nobody probably really cared to judge you on a public forum.   ____________________________________________________   I think we're going to see a lot of breakout players this year.  The thing Reich talks about a lot is that there will be some weeks where guys will play major roles and others where they will be pretty quiet.  Reich and Sirianni seem to be very adaptable with their offense and they stress the fact that we don't have selfish players on the team.  I think we'll see guys like Hines and Campbell play huge roles in some games and in others we'll hardly see them on the field.   Here's my list:   Hines -- not only as an RB/flex type of guy, but as a returner.  He really became impressive late last year as a punt returner.  If he keeps that up, I could see him being a pro-bowler as a return specialist.  I also see Rivers being able to utilize him a lot better than Brissett did on offense.   Campbell -- kid is a freak athlete.  He showed flashes of being able to play a very versatile role in the offense when healthy last year.... he just needs to keep himself on the field instead of in the trainer's office.   Ya-Sin -- he really came on late last year.  With additions of Buckner, development from Banogu and Turay and our LBers, we have (on paper) a better pass rush.  Should make Ya-Sin's life a lot easier.   Tell -- I was mostly impressed by him last year and he made a position change from college.  I think we'll see him on the field a lot more this year, and if I had to guess he'll be covering bigger TEs quite a bit.   Braden Smith -- Big Q gets a lot of media hype and credit (well deserved), but I don't think Smith is too far off from being a pro-bowl caliber OL.  With the addition of Rivers and the rookie RB, I think our whole OL is going to get a lot more credit this year.   TY -- If he stays healthy, I think the improved QB play is really going to benefit him.   Okereke  -- I see him taking a starting role and really improving.  He played very well last year, especially late in the season.  With a better DL in front of him and more experience, I expect him to really blossom.   Walker -- The addition of Buckner should make AW's life a bit easier.. again, Leonard gets a lot of well deserved credit and attention from our LB corps, but Walker quietly had a very solid year last year.   Hooker -- Contract year and an improved pass rush should really help him out.  Also, I expect the development of Ya-Sin and Tell, with a healthy Kenny Moore and the additions of Rhodes and others, Hooker will have more help from his DB unit as a whole.   Willis -- he had a very solid rookie year, I think his athleticism has him near his 'ceiling' early in his career, but again, improved play in front of him should help him out.   EJ Speed -- Ballard says he's as athletic of an LBer that we have, but came from a small school and was raw as a rookie.  I don't know how much time he'll get on D, but I expect him to be on the field more there and also to excel on STs.   Turay -- he was coming on last year... the addition of Buckner drawing attention from OLs should really help our entire DL.  Turay's workout videos look as though he's really putting in work... hopefully he stays healthy. Banogu -- like Turay, the guy is a very solid athlete who was pretty raw coming out of college.  I anticipate he'll make a similar jump in year 2.   Xavier Rhodes -- not sure if I'd call it a breakout year, as he's been an all-pro before.  Even though he was a probowler last year, it was his worst season to date.. I think he'll fit in very well with this D.   Grover Stewart -- He was a project pick and really started to develop last year.  I think having Buckner next to him will really help him step up.   Autry -- Hunt played pretty terrible last year (or at least digressed from his 2018), and I don't think it had positive effects on Autry.. having Buckner and a healthy Turay along with Justin Houston and others should really help him out.   Le'Raven Clark -- I don't know if he'll see the field, but I won't be shocked at all if replaces Glow, or if Smith moves to RG and Clark moves to RT.     Trey Burton -- he's a Reich guy and (if healthy) I think he can be a very good fit on this offense.   Asthon Dulin -- Don't think he'll be on the field much on O, but he was definitely improving last year.  I do, however, think he'll crack our roster and contribute significantly on STs.   Reece Fountain/Pascal -- I think these guys will be in the 4-6 WR roles, but, with improved QB play and with the addition of Pittman and Patmon, and the hopeful healthiness of TY and Pascal, I think when these guys are on the field, they'll have a lot better chance of being put in favorable matchups.  I thought Pascal played well last year, but with JB digressing as the season went on and with him sometimes being utilized as our #1 WR, I don't think he had the best situation.   Marlon Mack -- I don't know that his stats will go up, per se... but I think with the addition of Taylor (both taking workload off Mack and being a different type of back), that when Mack gets his number called, he's going to be very successful.   *I won't be shocked if Fountain and/or Dulin don't make the team, but if they do, I think they'll be all right for us and improved from last year (maybe not 'breakouts', but certainly should be in better positions with improved QB play and supporting cast).
    • Very glad to see how much influence Mathis has had on Turay.  It's always cool to see an ex-Colt great contributing and helping out our young talent.  Seems as though Reggie helps a bit, but I don't recall anyone like Mathis who remained so involved with the horseshoe and helping develop young talent so much.   Also, very cool to hear how appreciative Turay is of Mathis.  He seems like a good dude.
    • Part of what makes a player great over his career is longevity.  The rule of thumb I have always heard for HOF selection is 'a decade of dominance.'  Unless you really change the game, you have to have ~a decade of being an elite player to get in (an exception may be a guy like Megatron, because his combo of size, speed, power, hands, etc. in some ways revolutionized the game of football).   Leonard is certainly off to a good start.. and by a stats comparison, a better start than Lewis.  Lewis was not an all-pro (first or second team) as a rookie.  He was 2nd team in his 2nd and 3rd years, and again in 2010.  He was first team 7 times.   Leonard was a first team all pro as a rookie, which is very rare.  He was 2nd team in year 2, a year in which he missed 3+ games.  Leonard was the defensive rookie of the year (Simeon Rice got that award when Lewis was a rookie).  At the same points in their careers, Leonard has proven to be better at causing turnovers (his INT numbers are outstanding for a LBer)... but, he also plays in a different scheme and a different position (most of the time), so that's hard to really judge.   Lewis was a 2x NFL Defensive Player of the Year.  Leonard has not done that yet.  I don't doubt that he's capable of it, but he hasn't.  Lewis was a 2x Superbowl Champion and a 1x SB MVP, both things which Leonard hasn't accomplished.  Lewis was a 13x pro-bowler.. like Leonard, he missed out his rookie year.  Lewis is also on the 2000's all-decade team as the best at his position during that decade.   In terms of off-field stuff, Leonard seems to have less baggage than Lewis did at a young age.  That said, Lewis did seem to clean up his act after that alleged murder incident.  He also seems to be a pretty solid guy now and has several charities and does a lot for young minority communities.     In terms of on-field leadership, Lewis was outstanding.  I don't know how long that took, as I don't follow Baltimore as intensely as I do Indy (i.e., was he a captain in his second year and a tremendous leader of men as a rookie? I don't know).  Leonard, was named team captain in his 2nd year, and he was a leader right out of the gates.  From all interviews and things I've read, his coaches and teammates view him as the leader of the Indy D and seemingly have after just a few games as a rookie -- that's rare.   In short, Leonard is off to a heckuva start to his career.... but, let's hold off on comparing him to a first-ballot HOFer.  If he keeps it up for another 8-12 years, this thread deserves to be revisited.  
    • I am not calling Barkley a choker because when he went to  Philly they were not the same team that had won the finale in 1983. When he played for Phoenix they were a 50% team. His last 4 years with Houston he only stated 152 games in four years due to injury. He averaged 22.1 pts and 11.7 rebounds in his career. In the playoffs he averaged 23 pts and 12.9 rebounds.  He was the rebound leader in 1987 at 6'5".  He was the MVP in 1993. He also was the team leader for both Gold Medals in the Olympics in 1992 and 1996.  Sorry IMO those are not choker numbers. 
    • I find it very unlikely a team signs Kelly off our practice squad. If we want to run 3 QBs and keep Kelly on the PS we probably can.
