Will We Retire Harrison And James Number


mz1888

Recommended Posts

I'm not a big fan of retiring numbers.

Heck even #19 wasn't retired.

However, if there is one # I'd consider..... its #18. ALL others are secondary, IMO.

But I mean no disrespect to Harrison by saying that.

If we do take Luck, retiring #18 (the number not Peyton himself) when he's done could be a way for everyone to move forward.

As much as i enjoyed watching Edge (pre-knee) injury, not sure if he had really done enough or been with the organization long enough to get his jersey retired

7 years with the colts, The colts all-time leading rusher with 9226 yards. Second is Mitchell with 5487. He is 11th all-time in rushing yards..... He had 5 of his 7 1,000 yards seasons after his knee surgery. So not to sure what your talking about.... Not sure what edge you were watching but he should be in the hall when his time comes......

I dont see it happening, as was pointed out by bavanlan. John Mackey was also #88. And for James, Mike Curtis was possibly the best middle linebacker the Colts have ever had and they didn't retire #32 for him. 18 I think is more likely because it is not a number that has been associated with great Colts other than Manning.

I agree with all that, but not retiring his number. Not Harrison either. But I think he might belong on the wall with Harrison and Peyton. Wish he could have been here a couple more years. That was quite a trio. The three of them truly built the base of the success of this organization. In fact, I'm gonna watch some Manning / Harrison / Edge from the glory days right now I think.

yeh, not sure what people mean by pre knee injury James. Takes two years to get back from that injury. And he did. Colts or I must say, Polian, let him go because running backs are a dime a dozen. Well we have seen they arent. He could be still playing and retire a colt. Addai had one good year with Rhodes, that was it!

The Colts never retired Mackey's number The Colts have retired 19, 22, 24, 70, 77, 82, and 89. That's too many to have retired already. To have your number retired you need to be a player that transformed the game, became a champion, and went down as one of the greatest to ever play. IMO only two Colts should have their numbers retired. Unitas and Manning.

    • you’re correct, and I honestly don’t know why that’s the case lol.   i even remember the chiefs game and was thinking to myself how he may be our guy at FS.  He even had 4 picks in ‘22.   im definitely not going to go back and watch any film on him so I’ll write it off as me having blue colored shades on due to a 7th round rookie having some bright moments lol
    • FWIW:   The consensus around here is that Thomas had a nice rookie year for a 7th round pick out of the Ivy League.   But then he suffered through a very disappointing second season.      But for that crowd, here is a head scratcher from PFF.   Thomas’s grades are almost identical.  His second season might even be fractionally higher.  
    • I’m sorry, I agree with @Hoose on this one.  FS is a glaring weak spot for us right now.  Thomas regressed a lot last year.  Cross, he’s ok but I’m not sure if he’s the answer and I too would feel a lot better with Simmons back there.   I really don’t understand how our corners catch flak on here and the FSs get away clean lol.  Brents would grade out either ok or good when he played and Jones was getting recognition asking rookie corner.  Thomas was bad and cross would look solid and then would show us he’s not ready to be that safety blanket.  I will say, I do have some faith cross can be.  But Thomas, idk.  He was good first year, horrible last year.  
    • YOU are probably wrong regarding all of this.
    • Thomas was one of the few bright spots in 2022. I’m not sure why he regressed so much last year in both coverage and tackling.    Cross played good last year.  I’m not so sure he’s a FS though.  I always thought of him as more of a SS.  Having two safeties that can play both free and strong will help them disguise coverages though. Cross “Mossing” Pickens last year was impressive.  They traded up for him so they may feel now is the time for him or it never will be as a Colt.     I would feel better with Simmons or Diggs though.  I would also prefer a vet corner that pushes Baker off the 53.
