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.

Tommy's got mam-boobs like Blake Shelton.

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.

    • My Colts review after 3 weeks...and I don't think anyone cares, including my 6 sons, lol.   The Good 1. Reich play calling ..a real plus. Much improved over Pagano era (I liked Chuck as a person). Remember when there were Sean Payton to the Colts rumors? It was his gusty, creative play calling that appealed to me. Well, I think Reich, in terms of play calling and guts will be mentioned in the same breadth if he gets his Super Bowl win. 2. Offensive line - as good as advertised. 3. Brissett - his grabbing the reins and performing under pressure is a pleasant surprise. You have to be all in on him. Missing Luck is like missing an ex-girlfriend....wasting that emotion will only hurt you. 4. Mack - solid. Totally solid. 5. Rookies playing. The fact that they are playing and the Colts could have been 3-0 speaks well of the draft. Willis shows promise, particularly in run support. 6. Jack Doyle's contributions.     The Mediocre 1. Leonard...I guess I was hoping for more. I know he's hurt but I thought something was amiss the first two games. 2. Ebron - maybe spreading the ball around has lessened his opportunities. 3. Return game. Not much happening there. 4. 2nd receiver. With Funchess and Fountain out, not much happening there....we seem to be "F'ed". Has there been a Rogers citing?    The Bad. 1. The pass rush. Just not what I thought would be a strength this year. Next years draft should be pass rushers, pass rushers, and all the free agent pass rushers you can find. Stick a fork in Houston (you know the rest). 2. The 2 games of kicking woes. 3. Playing loose zones. Geesh...Ryan was making it look like a backyard football game where he hit every pass.   The Amazing 1. Ebron's first touchdown (the flip pass at the goal line) 2. The Pascal td call today 3. Geathers interception (not a typo, he really did it). 4. The 3rd Colts cheerleader from the left....just kidding.    
    • This is a must win because losing is bad mmmmkay
    • but he's not so what's the point?
    • I’ll take today’s Jacoby over Andrew (ducks and hides)   what I mean by that is that Jacoby was getting the ball out fast, taking what the defense gives him rather than forcing things, and was pinpoint on his throws (loften did a great job highlighting that and why it matters on the broadcast).  Those weren’t always Andrew’s strong suits.  
    • If Pagano was here, I'd be marking that Raiders game as an L. Thank god for Reich. Oakland is gonna come out hungry but I have no doubt this Colts team will step it up.
