Jim Irsay tweeted today... let's overanalyze & dissect it

Recommended Posts

Why would we "overanalyze & dissect" a tweet from someone who we don't know what his frame of mind was when he tweeted it? Lol

 

Let the man tweet what and all he wants.

I dunno.

Sounds reasonable.

What does one expect in a medium camp?

Do they practice on their knees, or hunched over, or only some of them show up?

Maybe they only practice some things?

Back-handed shot at Jim, I'd say.

For sure. I was more interested to see the explanation as to why something like that was called for.

Mr. Irsay has made way more good decisions in his lifetime, than many people here want to recognize. He's a billionaire team owner and you don't just walk into that territory without making millions of smart decisions.

 

People chirping about his indiscretions are simply jealous of Jim and couldn't make it to the billionaire status if they started with $999,000,000.

 

Good luck to you and your negative opinions of our owner. He is a strong family man who is secure enough to engage cynical fans on twitter.

 

Go Colts and Mr. Irsay in hoping the big mini-camp is competitive and productive for the team.

While I agree with a lot of this, I don't think Jim Irsay is a billionaire (I could be wrong though, he doesn't discuss his finances with me).  I do know he is one of the few owners in the league who's primary money making venture is the football team.

 

But to the rest... yeah, there are a lot of people in this world who only feel good when they can put someone else down.

You're just trying to make me cry.

As it stands now, I could walk to TC for the next 10 years.

 

I won't, but I could.    :)

Irsay has a net worth of $2.7 billion according to Forbes.

I'm guessing that it is mini-camp week.....and it's big.

 

He typically doesn't make much of a fuss about mini-camp going into it, that's why this tweet stood out this morning. Usually at mini-camp there's a presser where he addresses the media & takes some questions, but he doesn't normally go out of his way to hype it up. With Andrew Lucks' return on the horizon, this tweet definitely caught my eye more than his usual "Name 3 Colts that have worn #90 & win tickets to a preseason game" tweets do.

Honestly, I think it's big because it's a whole new coaching staff and a culture change.

I have a feeling we finally see Luck throw. I know many have told me not to have high hopes. I just feel it’s time!

There's no reason that we shouldn't be hoping to see Andrew Luck throw.

And if they told you a Badger made a good hose pet, would you believe them?

Nah! You could be right, and there's nothing wrong with having hopes. It beats the alternative.

My guess is they practice in full pads, but there’s still no tackling.

Not sure where people on message boards come up with things out of thin air. I speak with experience, that a month or so away from this forum is good for the mind. Think I might take another month off.....

BTW, my badger comment was meant towards those who'd advised you to remain hopeless, not your gut feeling, so I won't be eating crow.

Good call. And, be careful with that Badger.    :)

    • I'm actually dropping the jags D in favour of the patriots D. I don't like the jags D versus the new bills that have two weeks to prepare.    Right now I've for Ari for this week, Mia for 12,  KC for 13, NE for 16 and backup on all my weeks except for 15. Which I plan on getting Den or Buf for 14 & 15.
    • Gurley already got that, $45M actually. You need to do some research.
    • Luck is 9-0 vs the Titans let's make it 10
    • We've talked about it a lot this year.     Especially in August and September.    Ballard brings in all these kids and he has to see what he has.    How do the kids do in real games?   This past week,  we had Smith make a rare penalty in the 3rd quarter and suddenly we're facing 1st and 20.   The very next play works to perfection...   the J'Ville defense clears out and Hines is all by himself in the middle of the field.    Luck's pass is perfect but Hines turns his head to run with the ball before he catches it.    Dropped.     If he caught it,  he might have run a long, long way.   The next series,  a well conceived pass play finds Luck hitting Allie-Cox with a great pass.     Allie-Cox looks the ball into his hands,  but it goes through his hands, off his chest protector, bounces off and gets intercepted.     The perfect play works perfectly right up to the moment where it doesn't.   That's what kids do.     They make mistakes under pressure in big games.   This is the bad with the good.     If you're looking for Reich and Ballard to bench these guys --- you're going to wait a long time.   The kids still need to play.     The more experience they get this year,   the better they will be NEXT YEAR.   And that's what this year is about.     Making next year,  and the years after them,  as good as can be.   So, if we see more mistakes from the kids Sunday,   don't be too surprised and don't get freaked out.    It's what happens when you play the kids.   And Ballard and Reich know it.   Should be a great game Sunday!!  
    • Of course you wouldn't mind.    Problem is,  it wouldn't happen.   What has Hooker done to warrent trading a 1st or a 2nd round pick?      Not nearly enough.   Right now,  we'd be lucky to get more than a 4.   Hooker isn't going anywhere...
