Anyone remember the colts winning so many awards?

 I know this season hasn’t gone great so far but can anyone remember a time when the colts and especially young Players have won so many awards?  Off the top of my head I can name Leonard for winning def rookie of week and month I believe as well, Nelson won an award this week and I beleive I saw on here Ryan kelly was nominated mid season all pro team. I also saw today on here that the colts were said to have had the best bang for your buck in free agency. I’m pretty sure I’m forgetting a few things but I just wanted to show that the arrow is def pointing up and that we are slowly but surely getting to where we want to be no matter what the standings say.

It's definitely because this team as of right now is trending upwards.

 

Next year will be fun with these guys having a year under their belt and bringing in some free agents along with another draft.

 

Luck being back makes an astronomical difference. I think we'll even make some noise in the second half this year.

We used to win MVP awards.  Bob won DPOY.  We had Pro Bowlers everywhere.

 

These weekly and monthly awards are nice, but when that was happening, we probably didn't pay attention to the weekly/monthly awards.

It's a start and IMO next season Luck will be in the MVP discussion heavily.

Perspective. We don't need the rah rah days from the Peyton era to blemish the rebirth.

We don't "need" it, but since it will probably come with success (if we actually do become successful), the kids may as well learn how to accept them and be humble in receiving them so it doesn't affect their play.  That would be a nice perspective, but it's up to the coaches to keep their heads on straight.  Hopefully it wouldn't "blemish the rebirth".

I have no idea what that means. 

 

I was commenting on why we don't remember winning these weekly/monthly awards, because I'm sure Colts players won many of them.

We are a young team, winning awards, which we have not seen for a while. Rather than embrace this, you harp back to the 'old' days. A pointless observation in my opinion.

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
