What Ive Learned Since Peyton Has Been Released


Recommended Posts

it showed who are the real colts fans around here. so many people whining about irsay letting peyton go and saying i cant be a colts fan anymore well good ridden then. im glad fans are starting to show their true colors. as for me im a colts fan through the best and the worst and i put all my support to andrew luck. i hope the fans who are hoping for this kid and this franchise to fail never claim themselves to be colts fan again.

I alway wished here to have both Manning and Luck.

Now Manning is released, and I'm wishing the best for him, and I allways will be routing for him...BUT Colts is first, I put my full support for the team and Luck.

I hope there won't be any War of Fans here... This is already a hard time for us.

For those fans who needs to say "true colts" fan. Let it go. This is an emotional time and let people process the emotions.

I don't see why you had to make this thread now. I get it..you are a 'true colts" fan. Just born that way........no specific event that got you interested in the game or the team.

ugh, I totally understand OP, I really don't understand the "I'm never watching football again" mentality. We all knew Peyton would leave us one day, unfortunately it came sooner than we all expected. While I do appreciate everything Peyton has done for the team, I'm looking to the future now.

Does it really matter to you if people are upset or not? People were attached to Peyton. 13 years have been spent cheering for the guy. Peyton was the Colts. They are entitled to some anger and confusion. How about instead of criticizing people about being upset, we stop fanning the flames with needless posts like these? We are all fans in our own ways. Lets not have conversations about who is the better fan.

Your calling people out and you just cant see why it would end up locked huh? You open up a can of worms and people are going to start arguing about it. Just saying.

no one is arguing so far

I have learned one thing on this forum over the years never question another's fan. We all feel differently about things. This has just been a tough one. So if someone expresses his or her feelings and it does not match yours let it go. Like i say I got taught that lesson and learned it well. I hope the Colts have a great future I think it is going to be a rough road for a while though. I think in the press conference that is what Jim Irsay was trying to say. He knew it was gong to be tough here and wanted Peyton to have better. Any way that is what I took out of it.

Since the rules do in fact have a specific provision against calling out other fans or questioning their fan status, and that's pretty much all this thread is for. This thread is locked. Don't start a new one.

    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...  
    • You give him the same weapons as Watson had, he will.
