Andre Rison was only a colt for 1 season

well he was part of the Jeff George trade and he did go on to have a respectable career.

I agree with Bill Brooks, I would never say Aaron Bailey after the 95 Championship game

E.G Green :)

 

but seriously, Stokley.  We were blessed to have Marvin and Reggie on the same team but other than that we haven't had dynamic WR other than the ones mentioned. I wish we could get an Elite receiver to go with Hilton and stop the one year merry go round of bad receivers

Collie for 1.5 seasons. Sad how injuries ruined his career.

 

Yep, it was rare for a WR to be on the same page as Peyton within a year. He was like Welker and Edelman for Brady, constantly open but one thing he did not do well was get down fast enough like Marvin or Reggie did. I wish he learnt that from them and could have prolonged his career.

Dang it! I had five bucks on the "under" at 13 before someone brought up Hank Baskett. Where were you two hours ago?

E.G. Green was an excellent receiver, he was just made of glass.  IF EG Green has been able to stay healthy the Colts probably would not have drafted Wayne because they would not have needed a #2 WR.

Listed as a running back Edgerrin James was a very good receiver. Plus you can't overlook what Joseph Addai brought either. He caught a bunch of first downs out of the back field.

Well on the play that changed everything, Collie never had a chance to get down.  The following concussions (where he maybe didn't get down quick enough) all stemmed from that play against the Eagles where Peyton got him nearly decapitated.  He really was headed to being an all time solid receiver for us.  Since he never got to put in the time to reach that level, I'd have to list Brooks as the next best on that list.

That is not true. The hit that caused the damage came to the back of his head from No.42 (safety Coleman) in a whiplash fashion. The guy Collie could see was who Collie ducked his head from but he was still upright. Collie had the habit of ducking instead of going to the ground. Yes, Peyton did that to Dallas Clark too who got a few ringers too but he was more durable on that front, Collie just wasn't.

I think a good case could be made for Philip Dorsett being #1 on this list.  Sure, he sucked, but we did get Jacoby Brissett for him.

Jimmy Orr or Roger Carr. Lenny Moore was a fantastic pass catcher but is technically a RB. Moore has the 5th most receiving yards and receiving TDs in Colts history with 6,039 yards and 48 TDs.

I see what you’re saying but I stand by my assessment.  Sure, Collie maybe could have tried to immediately go down “while” making the catch but the fact that he was still contacted by 2 defenders in a bang-bang fashion “immediately” after making the catch tells me that he didn’t have a lot of time to do much of anything and it was a dangerous throw by Peyton.  

 

Regardless, that play changed the course of Collie’s career. He was easily concussed thereafter and it was a shame because he was a heckuva receiver.  And those uniforms with the blue helmets were SICK.  Shame that hit will always be a memory of them.

If we're going to include running backs, then I'm not sure if there was one better than Marshall Faulk.

Garcon, Roger Carr.

  LOVED Roger Carr. He was 6’4” and could run like the wind. He used to chase deer in the offseason to keep in shape.

    • Was just listening to Dan Dakich.  He brought up the idea that I did earlier.  That this entire ankle/leg issue could be a made up thing just as a way out.   Remember, he was fine after the season ended.  Zero mention of a leg issue . Then he went to Europe, got married, and came back with a 'calf'.    Huh?   Did he stumble and hurt himself walking to the altar?   And everyone who has seen him train this year?  Says he looks fine.  No sign of an injury.  Doctors couldn't figure it out.  Why?  No injury?     Went through those drills last week, looked great, and then he says that he thought it might be his last time on the Lucas Oil stadium field.   Makes zero sense.  Other than this has been in his mind for quite a while.
    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
