The picture is integral to this though, otherwise it looks like you are referencing the patriots.

Even though I hate that song "Born To Be Wild" by  Steppenwolf, since most radio stations use that number as the best road trip song ever it's not.

 

You get 4 thumbs up for creative ingenuity bravo4460.  :thmup:  :thmup:  :thmup:  :thmup:

While Born To Be Wild is a great song it has worn itself out. I will take Radar Love for the road trip song. But then I am partial to Golden Earring. Steppenwolf has some great tunes like Don't Step on the Grass Sam or For Ladies Only. Both groups are legendary in their own way. John Kay is the original bad butt rock singer.

I'm always Team Naptown, and I always have one team a year where I draft all Colts players.  That team is usually my best team too.

 

It used to be fool-proof, just draft Manning, and then whoever he is throwing the ball to.  A touchdown to Wayne would get me double points.  The Colts' D would give up some yards and points, but they were always good for a few turnovers, so decent points.

 

This seems to be working with the current team as well, although drafting TRich was a huge mistake that led to a revolving door at RB for me all year...

 

This year is looking good - Luck, Gore, Allen/Fleener, TY, AJ, Vinatieri is money and Mathis is back on D.  Flex is the tricky spot, Dorsett or Moncrief?

If an all Colts team is your best team, then you're probably pretty terrible at fantasy football.  haha

I've won two leagues during the Manning era.  I usually always make the playoffs.  Go back and look at some of the numbers from past years.  Colts players score a lot of points.  I usually have a stud RB from another team, and a solid bench.

 

The only time I struggle is during the Colts' bye week.  I scramble to get players and hit that waiver wire during bye week.

 

Plus, like I said, I do that with one team while I draft BPA in other leagues.  Any more than 3 teams to manage and it starts to get too time-consuming.

Actually, I finished 1st in 7, 2nd in 2 and 7th in 1 of my 10 fantasy leagues and all of them featured multiple Colts players... all of them with Luck last year were easy winners most weeks, though it got dicey in the playoffs because he sat most of the last 2 games.  I picked up Allen or Fleener on every team and Bradshaw and TY on most of my teams easily as well as Luck who no one seemed to want in all my drafts.  I also had at least one amazing starting RB, Demarco Murray, who was a budget pick ironically last year, was on 5 of my teams and I had LeSean McKoy on 4 of the others.  I used Bradshaw for all the games before he got hurt and looked like a genius and had picked up (luckily, not that I expected them to excel honestly) either Le'veon Bell (remember he sat the start of the season so few had interest in him and I had picked him up really just to cover up for bye weeks) and lucked into Lacy on the others.  So I was loaded and won most of my games by huge margins.  Colts players did me right and I guessed right quite a few weeks on when to play which Colts TE. 

 

Lucks value isn't too high this year either, I will likely pick him up again... but I am worried about ALL the receivers simply because there are so many of them to throw to I think they'll water each other down, so though Luck is a no brainer, even over an RB, the Colts receivers and TE's this year are a big risk.  I am not sure Gore gets enough yards to choose him over a better younger back but I will try to get him later down the draft for depth and maybe he'll surprise us.

As long as the players you have (all one team or all one bye week) are good, high schoring players, then you only really have to worry about one week.  But  if you end up going 12-1, i wouldnt complain.

I have been Fleener Schnitzel for the past couple of years.  Little lame but, then, I'm not that creative!

Nice PAC56! Trent Fell Down & We Really Don't Want Him To Get Up. Too cruel? Yeah, I don't think so either. 

Not Colts related at all, but my defending champion squad is called Lambda Lambda Lambda, and Louis is my profile pic.

Any excuse to invoke a classic movie like "Revenge Of The Nerds" is a good thing SS. "We've got bush. We've got bush!" LOL!

My team name is the Crushing Colts... It should be noted that I made that name up in 1995, when I was 12 years old.. This will be my 21st season as the Crushing Colts and I couldn't be more proud! I brought home my 3rd championship last year.. 3 in 20 seasons... Not that great, but that's fantasy football.

    • Hmm, my only question is if they test everyone for COVID before entering the building (and I presume they use hand sanitizer also?), then isn't all the other precautionary measures redundant?
    • I wouldn't go that far.....  
    • And I do respect and support it, doesn't mean I have to understand it because we have to face the fact that we can't isolate ourselves for months or years and that we can't avoid the risk of getting infected. Regardless of whether you are going to the supermarket or meeting with your family there are things you have to do and there is no 100% safety out there. You said it yourself: So many opportunities to get infected. Not only on the field or the football bubble but in real life that we simply can't avoid.    And If Joe Nobody can go to the office every day I think a football player can go on the field. And as I mentioned a football field is a much safer environment than an office with tests on a regular basis it's probably one of the safest places especially if they play the games without spectators. They say that it takes at least 15 minutes of realy close contact to an infected person to infect yourself in a closed room. And there are a lot of measures to minimize the risk like a max number of people in the training room etc. And yes Corona is a serious virus I don't doubt that but it's not the killer virus that is threatening to exterminate humanity. What we are facing now and that is noboby talking about is that we are dying a slow and steady economic and social death! But thats just my two cents.
    • First, I’m not sure it’s known just how much time you have to be near an infected to actually become infected yourself.      Second,  think of football this way...  every huddle, and there roughly 65-70 of them each side, each game is an opportunity.  Each play and tackle is an opportunity.   Every time a player goes in the team complex is an opportunity.   Every time you’re in the locker room, the weight room, the team meeting room, the positional meeting room, you name it, they are all opportunities.    There are so many different opportunities to get infected.     Plus, you talk about young people...   those people have their entire career in front of them.  The longer this drags out the more we learn that we don’t know as much as we thought we did.  That even when you’re Covid free many still report issues with their heart and lungs.  That’s not good for anyone,  especially athletes.  Young athletes are trying to protect their careers.    These decisions are complex, but you have to respect and support every decision,  no matter which way it goes. 
    • I respect there decision but don't understand it. Why? Athletes get tested on a regular basis, they can wear helmets with a faceshield, we know that u need to spend considerable time very close to a infected person to get infected yourself and they play outside where the risk isn't that big anyway. So athletes are probably the most safe persons in this pandemic. If others can do their daily work athletes can do it too.
