No worries @Pilgrim we all get busy & sidetracked these days. I think it's cool you associate your grandpa with John Wayne movies BTW. The Duke & your grandpa are a good combination IMO. Movies & family connections are always fascinating to read about to me. Nice.
I saw a lot of Wayne westerns with my dad growing up too as well as the early Eastwood spaghetti westerns filmed in Spain. Every time I hear chimes, I flash right back to " For A Few Feathers More."
I love that line when Eastwood sits down, points his shotgun at the villain who killed his partner's daughter, hands his gun belt over, & says "now we start." The polite way of saying your days are numbered buster & we're gonna settle this dispute right here; right now once & for all.
Getting back to John Wayne, I was always fond of Robert Mitchum who never got enough props to me as an actor. I thought him & Wayne joining up in "El Dorado" was fantastic. I liked Robert as a drunken sheriff who dries out & redeems himself with John's tough love help.
Yes, they can win now. It’s a QB driven league, and the Colts have one of the best QB’s in the NFL
What bothered me seeing that video was Reggie backing down at the end when he brought up the “lack” of pass rush the Colts have. Colts had numerous pressures last season, with Sheard I believe leading the way. Just didn’t sack the QB as much. The rush is there, just have to finish
The new defense should fix that issue. No more Sheard running in coverage down the sideline with Delanie Walker
People really just turn a blind eye to the fact the Colts lead at halftime in a lot of games. Brissett and the offense just couldn’t finish. That won’t be the case with Andrew Luck at the helm
Interview from NFL Network with Reggie and Shawn O’Hara.
Who do you think is more realistic, Reggie or Shawn ?
IMO there are so many question marks including health, but can the team truly be assessed without knowing Luck’s health, who starts where on both sides of the ball ir even the final 53.
The simple answer is: of course, they CAN make the playoffs (the same could probably be said for all teams) but whether they will or not is anybody’s guess.
I have sort of a tempered optimism about this year, not just because of Luck’s health but for the return of guys like Kelly, Mewhort, Hooker, Geathers and Swoope and the FA, draft and coaching additions/changes.
