TY Hilton Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

TY is so dependable and explosive, we would not have our success it he was not for him.  The great turnaround and success has many contributors but he is surely one big factor.

 

At work today, my co-workers know I'm a Colts fan and was saying how lucky are to have TY Hilton, he does a great job of the field without be a prima donna diva, I/me first player, and negative locker room guy.  His production over the past several years would make him vulnerable to getting a big head but he stays level headed and is a pleasant interview.  I'm grateful for his efforts and contributions without being a problematic player for coaches and team mates like some other great WR's like;  Antonio Brown, OBJ, Dez Bryant, Terrel Owens are those that come to mind.

 

Fitzgerald of Arizona is another top flight WR, model citizen.

TY can take the top off of a defense. Without him, teams can game plan quite differently to stop the Colt offense.

Remember last year when people wanted us to trade Hilton? Fools.

Yes I do remember. Saying things like he is not a #1 receiver.

Just having him on the field has always opened up other receivers including the TEs.

He plays through injuries and always comes to play. When Luck says he is a special player there is no reason to doubt him.

My fav moment of TY wasn’t even his play on the field. Do you guys remember when his kid was born and he broke down during the interview?  After that I was a TY fan for life. He’s a great player and great guy.   Thank you TY!!

I will freely admit to frustration with TY last year.  In particular I felt like he threw the O-line under the bus with comments to the press.  To me, that felt like pettiness and playing the blame game rather than trying to get the team to play better.

 

However, his toughness this year and willingness to play through a lot of pain and injury has given me a new-found respect for him.  Not only the ability to play through the pain barrier, but to ball out while doing it!

 

To emphasise just how important he is to us, we don't need to really mention the yards against the Texans, but 4 of his 5 catches were on 3rd down.  How can you put a value on that?

Is it just me or have we been super fortunate with receivers over the last 15 years or so?  We have constantly had one sometimes 2 hall of fame level recievers on the team at all times. It’s weird how sports work because let’s say on avg a team gets a hall of fame wr every 20 years. We have had 3 the last 15 years if Hilton becomes one.

   So does that mean after Hilton statistically  speaking we could possibly go on a huuuuuge drought without a super star wr because we used all ours up at once? I know that’s not exactly how math works but usually things avg out.

    It kind of reminds me of my fav baseball team the braves. We had some great catchers one after another with Javy lopez, Johnny Estrada who was going to be a star before he got injured and then Brian McCann.  Then after McCann that position was absolutely horrible for the next ten years or so.  Btw I know you can maybe buy one with free agency but I’m talking drafting one.
