Stupid T-Shirts

It's an ill advised marketing/PR strategy.  Like the runner-up banner.  It ended up having a short shelf life and making the organization look foolish. I read it on Yahoo.

Not much we can do. Can't really talk trash back. Chiefs destroyed us and the *s are in their 1,000th AFC Championship game. Twitter sucks anyway. Full of garbage and jerks who love to band together and kick us when we're down. 

 

It's part of being a fan. Especially a Colts fan.

Just good natured ribbing. Don't be so sensitive. Besides, we always have this:

You guys have great uniforms and tradition. The runner up banners and 1-0 shirts are a bit juvenile , along with The Shoe, and Build the Monster mantras. 

You have a SB, 2 AFC Championships, and a ton of division titles worthy of banners. Runner Up banners are silly, and I don’t get the 1-0 at all. Just play them game by game, survive and advance. Not a big deal, but in

my opinion, some silly and forced marketing.

From here on I'm wearing my 3-4 shirt (ie. Tom Brady's road playoff record).

You have a flying rat for a mascot.  

Ravens (crows) are the janitors of the world.

Ravens are actually pretty cool creatures.  Highly intelligent, and very entertaining to watch.

Well, there weren’t too many logos and colors left after the horseshoes moved on. We had to take what we could that made sense in Baltimore. I think it was more Edgar Allen Poe, than a scavenger bird.

Well, our first logo was embarrassing. A flying Maryland shield. It’s always fun to pick the Steel City clean as a janitor !

Honestly, if the Ravens did this, I would say the same thing. We’ve had our share of silly cliche’s like , “ Its time to hunt.” The Orioles are kings of ham handed marketing. So don’t think I’m just picking on the Colts. More a comment on marketing.

Our offense looked like the bottom of a garbage disposal after what the Chargers did to us. We needed a janitor to sweep up the pieces.

It's both the great thing and the bummer about the NFL.  It only takes one bad day to end your good season.  No other league like it really.

The 1-0 mentality started way before the playoffs for the Colts. The other teams just trying to look special. It is a great mentality to have.

I honestly thought you guys had a better chance than us , with an experienced Luck at QB. Lamar had a nice run, but the fact that he was a rookie concerned me . Had LA not gotten us, I’m sure Belichick would have had a few surprises. That being said, good seasons for both teams. Irsay made good picks with Ballard and Reich.

Can you imagine the Patriots Cheating Hall of Fame ? They actually do have a snowplow in there when they cleared snow out for their placekicker. 

You would also have a deflated football showcase, and the illegal formations room. Also included would be an NSA like listening, signals, and tapping display showcasing their abilities to steal signals from the Rams. 

They have a nice film playing in the Kraft Theatre called , “ Tuck Everlasting, “ where the poor Raiders had to live with this poor Tuck call for eternity !

There'll be a pic of Miss Brady with his uggs on that's for sure.

A bit juvenile?  The ravens have a WWE style pyrotechnic show just to introduce players.

Good point. I think that’s juvenile also. Just a bunch of hype.

I know.  I say the same things when watching commercials.

it the asnt Colts marketing, it was Stampede Blue.

 

kinda like the Goodell clown shirt was BarStool sports, who i'm told also had a part in the Russia collusion thing.  BarStool are over-the-top "shock-jock" tools that survive off causing and spewing hate and negativity.  (The Bostn area credo). Even crazy PattyMac knew they were "extreme".

True. Very much like ESPN hype marketing. I never watch them anymore unless a game is on. ESPN is just awful now. Predictable formula based on inane entertainment and controversy . They used to be great .

The 1-0 shirts were a montra for the season, not a statement about the playoff record. Albeit a  bit juvenille, it's what marketing departments do.

 

*s on the interwebs blow things out of preportion just because they can.

    • I think Ballard has done an excellent job in addressing the multiple position needs we had when he took over as GM.  There haven't been enough picks to fix everything yet, but he's sure done well in fixing some of them.  He's acquired additional picks along the way and used some of those to get players that are contributing and developing.   If you look at the overall body of work, he's hit much more than he's missed, and I would think he's done better than most GMs in the NFL.  There will always be misses in the draft, no matter what sport it is.   Some college players just can't adjust to the NFL level, but you don't know that until you draft them and they play on an NFL roster against NFL players.   I like where we're going and I'm sure the D-Line issues will be addressed.  That didn't seem to be a huge area of need coming into the season, but after 5 games and a poor performance for the most part, then I would think the need there is greater now.
    • Manning over Brady all day. How many throws do you watch of Bradys and just think wow vs manning. Brady has never had to single handedly bring a team to a win the way Manning always had too. Without hoody Bradys career looks very much like Case Keenum. Manning with any other coach will look like... well Manning.
    • That is my top 3 as well. I have:   1. Brady 2. Montana 3 Peyton That is without a doubt my top 3 and between those top 3 one could flip flop those guys in any order.   Brady = 6 SB wins, 3 League MVP's, 4 SB MVP's.   Montana = 4 SB wins, 2 League MVP's, 3 SB MVP's. The thing about Montana is he played in 4 SB's and never through an INT! That is an amazing stat.   Peyton = 2 SB wins (won one on 2 different teams, only QB in NFL history to do so as a starter), 5 League MVP's, 1 SB MVP.   -I would have Unitas at #4, he was the best that ever was IMO until I started watching Montana play. I have Elway #5, Elway also has 2 SB wins on his resume + a League MVP and a SB MVP.  
    • Probably splitting hairs when deciding on his best picks.   I think he has done better than any GM I recall.  Still some question marks from last years draft, but it seems that many expect results in a rookie's first few games of their career.    
    • Texans have faced two very garbage defenses in a row they are no contender maybe they win the division maybe they don't regardless they wont go far.
