I'm not saying he isn't correct. I'm just not sure why he needed to tweet it.

 

I agree. Hate it when the owner keeps it simple for the folks that don't know football. Thanks Jim, let's get FIRED UP! No matter the weather, our :coltslogo: are gonna be Ornery in the trenches.

I have a feeling the Chiefs are more nervous about this game than the Colts are.

(at least their fans anyway)

He needs to be sharing that bankroll with scouts and people who evaluate/pick talent who help Ballard Todd make great decisions. It would not hurt to reward coaching staff too. Then maybe we can keep everyone intact for awhile

 

Jim is not known to be stingy with anyone of his people around him. He is one of the top owners in the league when it comes to the percentage made off the team going right back to the team. That includes the front office right down the line to the ball boys. (well some of them are not boys anymore)

Heard a radio guy from KC today say the Colts are to the chiefs what the Pats are to the Colts, the road block that breaks their heart in the playoffs.  He also pointed out how due to all the heart break KC has had in the playoffs that as soon as something goes wrong the fans get nervous and get taken out of the game.  Hopefully the Colts can force a big mistake early.

Thanks for the bulletin board material Jim.

 

                  Sincerely, Chief's locker room.

That would the weakest bulletin board material in the history of sports.

Ya think? 

Jim's just excited for his team. He should be, they been playing very good. He does have a point with our running game and the Chiefs poor run defense. Why someone would have an issue with Jim is beyond me. :dunno:

It is true that this team is playing well im cautiously optimistic myself about tomorrow but I don't have any issues with what Irsay said every owner is confident in his team in some capacity but win or lose good season.

Oh man... if I was the owner of the Colts...

 

I already spend too much time spouting off on these forums...

 

A super-biased homer with too much money and too much free time?  I would be intolerable as the owner!  haha

 

This. I'd be talking trash weekly and calling out other owners Twitter's and making stupid bets for charity lol.

 

Side comment this is already done in other sports lol.  I'm a big follower of esports and their owners talk trash all the time. Of course their owners are much younger and more tech savvy but it's hilarious.

I wish people would quit bashing Jimmy. All he’s done since taking over this team is win. All billionaires are eccentric, but Jim is an interesting eccentric at least. Gotta love a guy with a guitar collection like his.

I wanna see a Tag-Team Title bout between the Colts and Pats.

 

On one side:  Irsay, Ballard, Reich, and Luck

 

On the other:  Kraft, Belichick, Brady, and to make it fair, they can have Gronk on their team.  :D

How can you have this match and not have Josh McDaniels involved? Grok can take a seat.  Gotta give Ballard his 5 minutes with that weasel.  No disqualification.   Lol.

Thank you.  How could I forget McD.  That was a brainfart on my part.

 

Maybe I'm subconsciously trying to delete him from my brain...  haha

 

They can keep Gronk, but we get to add BigQ!  :thmup:

How would Irsay know? He won't be down there on the field with the rest of the Colts staff and players. He'll be enjoying the game from his cozy warmed up press box.

No, Mr. Irsay.

Our team played like a Dome team in the elements. And our QB looked and played like frozen Bambi in headlights, which was most disappointing of all.

Haha you could see it.  My wife was watching when they were down I think 14-0 early and they showed Luck sitting on the bench.

 

Her comment to me was....."he looks stunned".

 

Really didn't see a lot of emotion, or really anything from him yesterday.

 

Very odd.

I didn't like his expression even before game started. And Simms, Florio's partner,  said Mahomes was throwing and handling the weather much better than Luck in pregame warmups.

 

And props to Mahomes. A QB with just a fraction of experience compared to Luck, completely out threw him and showed much more command and composure in this big game than Luck did.

It's possible.  I just got over it myself and it can wipe you out.

I heard that from a guy on twitter too.

 

Luck looked.....stoned for lack of a better word.  Maybe he was sick.

It was something, have no idea what tho.... I don't know if it was physical or mental or what. Maybe his shoulder is weak in cold weather? I don't recall him zipping in any passes. If he did it was very few. Or maybe the moment of a Big Game was too big for him? It shouldn't have, he's had playoff wins before, in fact just 7 days prior.

 

It's just Disappointing our leader who you want to carry his team on his back like Unitas, Jones, Peyton puts in a klunker at a time like this.

IMO he simply just had a bad game, it happens to a lot of QB's in Divisional Round games on the road. Luck has only had 2 bad games over the last 2 months, the other being at Jacks.

I started to notice the passive attitude and fall off in his play the last few weeks of he season, and much more so the second half of last weeks game and then this game.  For example there were 4 passes he could have made last week that if he does, the game is a blowout.

 

Yesterday he was short on everything.  No zip at all.  And how many were batted down.  Obviously that is something teams are noticing and starting to do more and more.  He literally shrinks (crouches) in the pocket as of late and the result is a batted ball.

Huh, that's weird.

 

I noticed the opposite in the final game of the season.

 

He had one ill-advised pass in Tennessee, but otherwise looked unstoppable, and gave a fiery halftime speech to motivate his team for the 2nd half.  :thinking:

I think the tweets are harmless, but a bit silly. Feed the Monster, The Shoe, Roof is open, 1-0. The kitsch of Twitter.

Of course his tweets are harmless. And his veiw about us playing well in bad weather were a popular belief to many. What was Disappointing were the strategy and gameplanning of our coaches and the horrible play of our offense, especially our qb.

After watching the Chargers get pummeled by the Patriots , I think Ravens fans can join you guys in being outcoached. Our team looked foolish on offense. No adjustments. I feel your pain.

    • If we win a SB with Luck, I'd actually be fine with it. Right now I'd take 1 SB win and be happy. With Brady and Mahomes playing in the AFC, and young guys like Watson and Mayfield, a SB is not a guarantee. Not to mention we have to win when we get there.
    • Yeah. They will need to pick and choose how they keep because their payroll is getting up there. The more I think about it and research it though, it seems like it's more likely than not that they will keep him and let some of the other high end FAs walk.      I do too. This was more of a how I would do it, rather than what Ballard would likely do. I think Ballard will be restrained with the money again.        Yeah. I think in my next mock I will probably do some combination of Golden Tate, Randall Cobb and John Brown instead of Williams. 
        I think Iupati is much higher end talent and if he stays healthy he is a completely different animal to anything other than Nelson we have on the O-line. I think he's closer to Nelson than he is to the other linemen if he can stay healthy. Big if, but yah... 
        I think he's the same mold but I think he's much more talented and much more athletic. He tested like an elite athlete when he was coming into the league and it's starting to pay off. I also think he's probably a better pass-rusher than Sheard. Also again - Sheard's contract is up after this year and he will be 31. I'd rather have his replacement ready to go on the roster when we ultimately let him go.  Looking forward to seeing your version of a mock off-season. Also... I hope you post some scouting reports on players. Cheers.
    • Haha, I think we'd have to figure out 18 years of history on what's scripted lol. Brady is putting up a lot of the stats like Brady for real and the wins, I do believe a few of those SBs were scripted though. Especially the 2001 though with 9-11 happening and all that. I called that one as a 14 year old and made my uncle money where he bought me a nintendo gamecube.
    • Another guy I would go after in a heart beat if he reaches Free Agency is C.J. Mosley.  If you pair him with Leonard, that could be a lethal combination.  In the draft focus on WR, DBs and an Edge rusher and your set.
    • I completely agree. There's a lot of things he can improve on. I think we should see a big jump next year. My hope at least. He needs to work on the little things, the details
