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.

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.

    • Correct.   i don’t think Luck is EVER coming back. Nor do I want him back nor should the team want him back. He left this team high and dry less than10 days before the start of the regular season. If I was an owner or a coach, I wouldn’t want him back unless there were some major stipulations added to his contract. Such as 100 percent reimbursement for all salaries paid from the time he was drafted if he were to retire again too close to the season. Put a cut off date around March 30th. Anything after that, he has to reimburse as stated above. Then and only then would I take him back
    • He's got plenty of money.   I think the only way he would come back is if he had the itch to play and thought he could win.   Maybe if Rivers and the Colts have a good season the chance at winning would be there.   Very doubtful that he ever plays again.   I'd give it a 10% chance.
    • You are reading it incorrectly.  He is saying that he said he was the first to say that Luck's injury (shoulder) was due to a snowboarding accident and everyone laughed at him.  He then says that he said, 3 weeks before Luck retired, that Luck was going to retire.  
    • Snowboarding is an expensive recreational activity - weed is costly.
    • Reich intends to pit the two against one another in what many would consider Vinatieri's specialty: high-stress situations. The Colts coach explained that he will do his best to fabricate those situations during and after practice. One can be sure that without the added test of preseason games, the kickers' performance during these high-stress situations will go a long way in determining who wins the competition.   “They'll get all of their normal routines," Reich said. "But as a team, we'll create more team atmosphere, team kicking drills that will be heightened and weighted more heavily in the kicking competition."  Though Reich didn’t submit a “favorite” to win the battle, McLaughlin surely has the leg up in that he’s a somewhat proven NFL commodity. Last season, the undrafted free agent performed admirably in what amounted to a four-game audition with the Colts after Vinatieri succumbed to injury. Arriving in Indianapolis in the high-pressure role of replacing the kicker many consider the greatest of all time, McLaughlin drilled 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 of his extra points in those games. His performance in Vinatieri’s stead earned him a one-year contract with the Colts immediately following the season.    Of course, the man they call “Hot Rod” brings an impressive resume to the battle as well. During four years at SEC powerhouse Georgia, Blankenship was a model of accuracy and consistency. He connected on all 200 of his extra points and finished his Bulldog career an 82.5% field goal kicker and the school’s all-time leading scorer.  For his efforts -- and to keep him away from other teams -- the Colts handed Blankenship a $20,000 signing bonus, a hefty number among undrafted free agents. Despite McLaughlin’s incumbent status, Blankenship’s price tag and Reich comments foretell would should be an equal and open competition for the job.    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/07/29/colts-vinatieri-era-indy-seemingly-over-mclaughlin-blankenship-battle-job/5536851002/
