I'm a Coke (Zero) guy. My wife is a Pepsi fan. We make it work though. I haven't drank a regular soda in 13 years. Pretty proud of that accomplishment. I was kind of addicted in high school.

It's impossible to know what next year will bring.   That's the reality.  Look at the falcons last year.   Look where they are this year

 

Reality is that the Colts got worse over the last 4 years instead of improving into a Super Bowl contender. And just to hope that the same guys that are responsible for that will do better next year and then next year and so on is just dumb.

I like Pagono, happy for him! Honestly with this team I think 8-8 is pretty good. No pass rush, poor inside LB play, limited Dl personal, poor CB play, poor safety play, rookies everywhere on the OL, probably need another wr. With a strong draft we could have a better team next year.

Chuck coaching cost a few wins left out in the field and that cost the division.

Haha.  ME TOO. Theres NO DOUBT pepsi would be the last thing i gave up.  You'd have to pry the bottle from my cold fingers.

i'm tryin to design a back "holster" for my pepsi 2-liters with an IV line directly into my vein.  I waste too much time refilling my glass.

You can feel disappointed, even choose not to renew your tickets. I think acting like Irsay has harmed you in any way is a bit much.

Think about the children! How are they supposed to explain to their children that Mr. Irsay is purposely ruining their Sunday's? :sarcasm:

Well if Pagano is staying that means Grigson is staying or Irsay wants to cause drama buy hiring a new GM and saying here is the coach you have to work with.  I would hope he learned from watching other teams that generally does not work out well.

 

I cannot say that I am surprised, but I am definitely getting ready for another 8-8 season.  Pagano is Jeff Fisher outside of the division and the Jags/Texans/Titans are all much better teams so 6-0 is not a given anymore. Actually given Pagano's regression in the AFC South 7-9 is probably more like it.

My favorite was his quote after the Raiders game.  "I had no answers for them", or something to that effect.  The "defensive guru" had no answers for an average running game. :lol:

Raiders have a better than average run game, & 3 all pros on the OL. Raiders have probably the 2nd best Ol in the league! We have a still mending IMO Henry Anderson, an undersized NT, And 3 other young pups getting man handled not to mention IIL that got manhandled. Not much any one could do!

This is a sad announcement.  Hard to fathom his(Irsay) decision, after the  last couple of bad years, bad decisions by an inept  coach out on the field, bad GM, who can't identify talent and wasting Luck's talent.  This organization just simply don't get it. They can't build a super team....Simply sucks!!!!

I actually don't have season tickets.  I typically get my hands on a pair of decent seats once a year and make it to the LOS.  I do have some close friends and colleagues  that have season tickets, and they are questioning whether they will renew them or not.  Heck, knowing them, they probably will.  No, Irsay didn't harm them in any way, but can you understand why the people that do actually pay a lot of $ every year would feel ripped off?

Here is Irsay's problem.  

 

He really wants Manning as GM and Harbaugh as coach.  Reuniting two of the most famous Colts qbs of all time.

 

But, Harbaugh is not ready to leave UM and Manning is not ready to assume GM duties. 

 

So he has to decide, "do I fire P and G now and bring in someone new, only to have Harbaugh and Manning available next year and then have to fire the coach and GM I just hired?"   "Or do I just maintain status quo and wait for Manning and Harbaugh next year or the year after?"

 

I think he decided it wasn't worth the aggravation of trying to find a new GM and coach NOW, among a group of candidates he could take or leave, and instead is banking on his 2 favorite choices being available in the next 1-2 years.

Irsay didn't physically harm me either, but he took away my passion for football in one fell swoop. Basically now, I'll be playing fantasy football for money, and it'll feel like a job instead of fun. I hate working when It feels like a job.

No that is not the reality...at all.  The colts have NOT gotten worse over the past 4 years...they showed decline THIS YEAR.  That's it.

Wow.  You are definitely right.  My apologies.  I looked up the Raiders run offense for 2016 and it is ranked 6th.  What bugs me is that I KNOW I read an article recently about how Chuck struggled against an "average" Raiders run O and had no answers.  Guess I shouldn't believe everything I read.  :thinking:

Sorry, HSH.  They "guys you're given" should at least be ready to play before the third quarter of a given game.  That's coaching, IMO.

 

That the players not the coach. If anything he got them back on track or motivated them to play better in the 3rd quarter. Again this team IMO is not very good! We lack talent at many positions, or were very young in others! I blame Grigson honestly!

I agree that we aren't "very good".  At the same time, how can you deny the fact that Chuck isn't a good coach?  GM brings in poor talent.  Coach makes terrible decisions season after season and runs poor schemes, on top of the bad talent we have.  It's a perfect storm, and it sucks.

Please tell me the difference.  I'm seriously curious.

 

Last season too. They were bad even with Luck except for the Broncos game. Luck came back this season and the badness continued.

Well to be honest they were on the decline last year before Luck got hurt, it just continued.

I wouldn't say I'm addicted so much as I couldn't give it up if my life depended on it.  :D

I understand what you're saying.  But my guess is that you, as well as I, will start to cling to a small hope this August that things will be a little different this year.  That maybe, just maybe, Chuck will have an awakening and not make the same mistakes that he has year after year.  Is it likely?  No.  But you know we'll get a little bit excited before the season, in hopes that things will be different.  Definition of insanity?  Maybe.  But tiehr way, I doubt your passion will be lost.

Either way*.  Sorry, I'm new to posting, folks.

I've said for a while now neither will be fired 1 year into being re-signed and Irsay make his continuity speech. These guys are here for the remainder of there contracts

 

 

There's no reason for you to think it.       There's no reason for you to post it.

 

If you noticed,  this news didn't come out until Friday,  5 days after the season.     If Irsay is not firing them for another few years then he could've made this announcement 5 days ago on Monday.      He could've walked out and said  "I'm not happy with the way this season played out.    But I trust in Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano and I will not be bringing in anyone else."       

 

He didn't do that.     That means he was considering firing them.       So if he considered it last year and if he considered it this year,   then there's no reason to think that both men are safe for the life of their contract.

 

Don't over think it.

 

The only way they last is if they win.     Another 8-8 is not going to cut it.

Thanks for the pep talk Mr Coffee. I'll probably watch like a fool lol. I still watch WWE even though Stone Cold, The Rock and everyone are gone. It's hard to quit on them when you have loyalty to the team.

Well, we're being pointed and laughed at right now. I'll go ahead and thrown in the inevitable "they'll be laughing when we're in the SB."

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/nfl/comments/5md9ez/source_colts_hc_chuck_pagano_has_received/?sort=top

 

Really though, I posted this for some fans here who seemingly don't get outside the fan base much. It's an eye opener, really. It gets frustrating here when you see people saying our fans are too negative when you literally can't leave this bubble of a Colts forum without seeing the Colts getting abused by everybody. And reddit isn't your average ESPN/Youtube commenter crowd, not just a ton of teenagers who know nothing.

 

For the Love of God,  who cares what other fans think?

 

We already had a long thread about Irsay not caring what his own fans think.     So why should he care about what fans of another team think?

 

This massive insecurity is simply embarrassing.....

Not really. 


1) In the literal, I don't believe STH renewals are due yet, so they have plenty of opportunity to vote with their dollars. I don't think I would feel ripped off, personally.

 

2) I think it's silly to believe that Irsay doesn't expect his team to perform better, or to believe that he isn't doing what he thinks is best for his franchise.

 

3) I also think people are taking this a little hard. I don't think Pagano should still be the coach, but I don't think he's trash, garbage, awful, pathetic, or any of the other harsh terms he's being described with in this and other threads. He's just not good enough, IMO. Irsay either hopes/believes Pagano can do better, or doesn't want to pull the trigger on a staff change until he believes he can land a clear improvement. 

 

So, disappointed? Yes. Upset, even mad? Sure. Screwed over, ripped off? Ehh, not so much. I believe Irsay is interested in putting out the best product, and I believe that because he's proved it over the course of two decades. Just because I disagree with his decision doesn't mean he doesn't care about winning.

    • The point of this thread, was more about the future in general in terms of the equality of the young men being added. There are several places that predictions of the record are being discussed.    I agree with the OP....Ballard is assembling special young men to the great franchise, the Colts. High on effort, talent, and intelligence, with old school humility. Future is bright indeed. 
    • Without looking at the link first what percentage of runs do you think the Colts did last year? I was quite surprised. I was just as surprised that Baltimore led the league with their percentage.   NFL Football Stats - NFL Team Rushing Attempts per Game | TeamRankings.com https://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/stat/rushing-attempts-per-game   There will never be another team that runs it an absurd 70% of the time like the 72 Dolphins, but I would definitely like to see our percentage  go up, especially with the RBs we have. I guess 40% seems really high considering what we did last year, and what Baltimore led the league with, but what the heck. If we're able to stay on the field running it 40% of the time we will be hosting the Lombardi next February so 40% is my final answer. Although I realize it will never happen.   1972 Miami Dolphins Stats | The Football Database https://www.footballdb.com/teams/nfl/miami-dolphins/stats/1972   And yes I see what TB did and still won the SB, but I like smash mouth football and think we could win one also with it.
    • For reference, here are Ballard's 45 draft picks so far:   2017 | Round 1 | No. 15 overall | S Malik Hooker 2017 | Round 2 | No. 46 overall | CB Quincy Wilson 2017 | Round 3 | No. 80 overall | EDGE Tarrell Basham 2017 | Round 4 | No. 137 overall | OT Zach Banner 2017 | Round 4 | No. 143 overall | RB Marlon Mack 2017 | Round 4 | No. 144 overall | DT Grover Stewart 2017 | Round 5 | No. 158 overall | CB Nate Hairston 2017 | Round 5 | No. 161 overall | LB Anthony Walker Jr. 2018 | Round 1 | No. 6 overall | G Quenton Nelson 2018 | Round 2 | No. 36 overall | LB Darius Leonard 2018 | Round 2 | No. 37 overall | RT Braden Smith 2018 | Round 2 | No. 52 overall | DE Kemoko Turay 2018 | Round 2 | No. 64 overall | DL Tyquan Lewis 2018 | Round 4 | No. 104 overall | RB Nyheim Hines 2018 | Round 5 | No. 159 overall | WR Daurice Fountain 2018 | Round 5 | No. 169 overall | RB Jordan Wilkins 2018 | Round 6 | No. 185 overall | WR Deon Cain 2018 | Round 7 | No. 221 overall | LB Matthew Adams 2018 | Round 7 | No. 235 overall | LB Zaire Franklin 2019 | Round 2 | No. 34 overall | CB Rock Ya-Sin 2019 | Round 2 | No. 49 overall | DE Ben Banogu 2019 | Round 2 | No. 59 overall | WR Parris Campbell 2019 | Round 3 | No. 89 overall | LB Bobby Okereke 2019 | Round 4 | No. 109 overall | S Khari Willis 2019 | Round 5 | No. 144 overall | CB Marvell Tell 2019 | Round 5 | No. 164 overall | LB E.J.

    • I think it is a tough schedule any way you look at it.  
    • I was wrong.   The Cardinals got swept by the Padres.   Only lost 1 game in the division though, which is good.
