Once again, MIGHTY FOOTBALL GODS I beseech thee to bless the arm of your fine servant Andrew who is great need of throwing the ball to a Receiver or Tight End who with strong and fast legs will run that ball to the HEAVENLY END ZONE and scoreth points which are sorely needed!  And if it pleases thee, oh MIGHTY FOOTBALL GODS pour a shield around our Colts so that injuries will just slide off and return to vex the Pats instead!  I ask these boons in the name of all that is holy in the Colts Nation, one helmet, under the 'shoe, forever and ever AMEN!!

    • From NFL website:   Betting on NFL games will draw an indefinite suspension at a minimum of one year, or two years if a player bets on a contest involving his team. Actual or attempted game fixing will result in a permanent ban from the NFL, while providing inside information and tipping will elicit an indefinite suspension (minimum of one year), as will third-party or proxy betting.   The most significant change outside of the NFL arena reduces penalties for betting on other sports while in the workplace, calling for two-game suspensions without pay for first-time offenders, six-game bans (also without pay) for second-time offenders, and suspension without pay for at least one year for a third violation. Williams and Petit-Frere were previously suspended six games for betting on non-NFL sports at a team facility. Under the amended policy, they would've been banned two games.   The NFL Commissioner will consider specific patterns of behavior and history of wagers, as well as the player in question's access to confidential information or an ability to affect a game in any way, among other factors, per a memo obtained by NFL Network's Judy Battista. Self-reporting violations, acceptance of responsibility and cooperation with league investigations can serve as mitigating factors when determining penalties.   The NFL has banned a handful of players since enacting its gambling policy, including a few rounds of suspensions prior to the start of the 2023 season. Williams and Petit-Frere are the only suspended players directly affected by this change in policy.
    • NFL and NFLPA has agreed to modify gambling policy, set clear guidelines for punishments and have reduced timespan of suspension for NON-NFL bets placed from any team facility.   Any player who bets on the NFL will continue to be suspended indefinitely for at least one year, while players who wager on their own teams will get a minimum two-year penalty.   Any player found to be trying to fix any aspect of a game will receive a lifetime ban.   Timespan of suspension for placing a non-NFL wager while at a team venue — which includes the practice facility, any of the league's stadiums, or even the team plane or hotel while traveling -- has been reduced. The league has significantly reduced the initial penalty for this type of violation, with the first infraction carrying a two-game suspension, a second offense netting six games and a third occurrence drawing a minimum of one year.   For example, Lions 2022 first round pick Wide Receiver, Jameson Williams, had been suspended earlier for 6 games for placing wager on non-NFL games from team facility. As he's already served more than the timespan of suspension per modified gambling policy, NFL has announced that Williams will be reinstated on Monday following Week 4 games.    Former Colt Isaiah Rodgers would continue to serve the suspension announced earlier for a minimum of one year. 
    • I always looked forward to those games, cause I figured it was our best chance to win a game. Funny how it changed to watching two of the best teams in the NFL battle around 99 or so.
    • Yeah the early 90's teams were terrible. The 90 Pats and 91 Colts are arguably in the top 5 of worst teams ever.
    • Only way we can make the playoffs is:   Marlins lose their last 3 games, Reds lose 1 more game, and we win our last 2 games. Then we are in lol. If that happens, I will say I have seen it all at that point.   Assuming we do miss the playoffs, 1 word to sum up the season for me would be - PUZZLED.   I am not going to say disappointed or shocked, etc.. Puzzled fits more. Puzzled because we were playing so great in August and at 1 point had a 90% chance of making the playoffs. Not a disappointing season because before the season, many picked us to either finished last or 4th in the division. We at least were relevant this season.
