I thought what he said about the 50/50 balls was interesting. Never thought of TY as that kind of player. Just love Reggie.

People like to talk about how we've been blessed with QBs. I think we've been just as blessed when it comes to WRs. To go from Marv, to Reggie, to now T.Y. That is 3 HOFers in my book

It will be interesting to see who takes the torch from TY. Will it be Cain or Campbell or somebody not on the roster yet.

T. Y. just doesn't get the attention and credit he deserves. He's not only a great reciever but what i like almost a little bit more is that he is no drama queen or bonehead like a lot of other good WR's.

T.Y. is the consummate pro, he doesn't draw the media to him for any other reason than his play on the field. Because of that he rarely gets press until the end of the year when he's up for Pro Bowl consideration.

He often plays hurt, high ankle sprains, ribs and still insists on playing and being there for his team. He makes many sacrifices that he does not get or want recognition  for  We are very lucky to have him as a Colt

Hell, we have Colt fans who still do not think he is a #1 WR. 

I think what some were saying is about 2 or 3 games a s ason he disappears.   Is it coverage, play-calling?

  The only weakness i've seen is perhaps getting manhandled at the line.  When he has some space, no problem.

But i have no complaints.  The only real way to improve him is if he would start growing taller.

  I don’t know what criteria fans use to define a #1 WR but drawing double coverage, running all the routes and being a guy that opposing coaches have to game plan for puts him in that category for me.

Just keep flying under the radar and do your thing T.Y. 

 

Reggie and Indy fans know how awesome you are, no need to hear it from ESPN.

 I don't see any of Reggie's examples as 50/50 balls.
 What i saw was T Y having DB's stressed out and extended to try to stay with him and T Y showing Elite ball tracking ability. They were still running with him and he does a great job going for the ball before they can react. Yes, he does this A LOT!
 T Y does disappear even though Andrew is always looking for him. Way to many forced passes his way that get Andrew in trouble. Andrew will get better i hope with all the great coaching up Frank is giving him.

 And it should only help T Y when we have better overall weapons to attack D's with. It is coming.

I think hes referring more towards T.Y's strong hands and being able to get balls away from defenders. You don't see many ints when he targets T.Y

I think Reggie will get into the HOF, but it will probably take several years of being on the ballot.

 

As of now, I don't think TY is on a HOF trajectory.  He only has 1 season with >90 receptions and 0 seasons with 100+.  After 7 seasons, Marvin had 4 100+ reception seasons (including the NFL record 143 receptions).  Reggie had 1 season with 100+ receptions after 7 seasons, but then he had 3 more after that.  TY has also never had a season with over 1,500 yards receiving. Marv had 3 of these and Reggie 1 in their first 7 seasons.

 

At TY's current pace, if he were to play 13 years like Marvin, he'd wind up with 941 receptions (IMO, 1000 is the absolute minimum # of receptions needed to make it into today's HOF -- and in this passer-friendly era, the number will continue to increase over time).

 

I really like TY, but when it's all said and done, I think he'll be a HOF candidate but will have a very hard time cracking into it.

Never said hes a first ballot HOFer. It'll take him awhile, but he is a HOF talent

He's going to have to have 7-9 more years producing at the same or better level than he has to be considered.  If we win a few SBs and he performs great in the post-season (like Reggie did), it may be easier on him... but, until then, he's probably (realistically) on the wrong side of the fence.

Because he doesn't have the prototypical size.

With emphasis on passing game in this era, it may get easier for receivers than in the past.

I don't necessarily agree with that... WRs in this era are going to have to have HUGE numbers to be considered for the HOF.

 

I think 1,000 catches is the minimum to even be considered for the HOF for WRs coming from this era, due to the emphasis on passing.  Unless you do something to totally change the game (e.g., Randy Moss had 982 receptions, but he brought an element to the game that nobody had ever seen prior to him).

 

Andre Reed barely squeaked into the HOF and had 951 receptions in a much less passer friendly era.  

 

Hines Ward had 1,000 receptions and isn't in the HOF yet, though he's been eligible for 5 years.  Isaac Bruce had 1,024 receptions and isn't the the HOF yet, though he's been eligible for 7 years.

 

If TY plays 13 seasons in the NFL, he's on pace to have 941 receptions.  

 

Don't get me wrong, I like TY a lot.  However, I think his career winds up on the outside looking in, in regards to being  a HOFer.  The guy has shown a lot of courage and he's a great teammate.... but, his game is really built on his speed.  A guy like Larry Fitz who is still producing at a very high level late in his career not only has good speed/quickness but he's got tremendous size and strength.  I could be wrong, but as TY's body slows down with age, I don't see him being able to perform at a very high level like Fitz, mainly because he doesn't have great size or strength.

 

Also, as Reich is really starting to emphasize the run game and as we have multiple other threats (IMO, since Reggie has been gone, this is the deepest group of WR/TEs we have had in the Luck era), I don't see TY's numbers sky-rocketing.  I think he's still our main guy, and a very talented one at that, but I somewhat expect to see the ball getting distributed more throughout this offense, meaning TY's numbers will not see great improvements.

    • I also watched "some" of the pro bowl & Luck did look bad. But it was the skills challenge that was most telling & depressing.  Now surely Luck isn't gonna come out throwing rockets in a silly contest, but the lack of zip on his passes & the horrendous accuracy was shocking.  He may have had the lowest score in history.  Maybe hit the closest targets twice.    That, coupled with the bad playoff game, had me really worried about arm fatigue or a dead arm. Maybe understandable coming off his first year back from surgery?  But maybe there's more there???  Then he skips OTA's &, correct me if I'm wrong, his first pass of his first training camp practice vs the defense was an interception...   Then he didn't practice for a while.  Then came out and "gave it one more go" before the Bengals game & retired the following week.  I doubt Luck walks away from the game because of an ankle injury unless major surgery was the only option.  I think it may have been the shoulder.   And because of that & the way he retired, I don't know if we could get two firsts. I can see a first and a second though. Then again, Elway might give us that and then some...    Regardless, barring this team completely coming off the rails or JB getting injured, I don't think you could just give Luck the job back.  I don't know if the majority of the players would just be ok with that.  This is becoming JB's team as each week passes.  If he gets us to the playoffs & wins a game, I think it'll be tough to take the job from him.     Look at the joy with which Doyle celebrates when we score. The way he looks to JB & congratulates him.  Same for the lineman. It's a tight brotherhood in that locker room. And Luck isn't in there everyday like JB is & how can they trust that Luck has that fire back burning in his belly?  Luck may have gotten Drew Bledsoe'd.    If he comes back, you move him to the NFC for the most ransom you can get. Then we finish putting the key pieces to our Dynasty in place with those picks...  
    • I agree.  Hopefully Turay bounces back healthy and we bring in another young DE or 2, which could reduce the amount of snaps Sheard/Houston get next year, but they are both still playing at a high level and are good character guys and all-around football players.  Sure can't hurt to have our young guys get groomed by those 2.   Since Sheard has been back, it seems like there's been significant improvement in Autry's game as well.
    • He was stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis (as per that article).  I found he lives in California now, but then googled "Is Chuck Yeager a Colts Fan?" and came up with this:    https://blog.ticketmaster.com/indianapolis-colts-team-fans/   "The team counts among its loyal followers a number of big-time celebrities, including: • Billy Bob Thornton • Famed test pilot Chuck Yeager • Actor Haley Joel Osment • Comedian/former talk show host David Letterman • Actress Elisabeth Shue • Rob Lowe"   _____________ Pretty cool, Mr. Irsay!
    • Definitely. My great uncle Paul served in WWII, was part of the liberation of the first concentration camp in Ohrdruf.
    • It stinks we were so depleted against the Raiders otherwise we would be 5-1. That is the NFL though. 6-0 had Vinny been himself on opening day. I am a Colts fan so I can make excuses for them as well for losing the 2 games we lost. We lost our franchise QB at the beginning of the season and people want to make excuses to why we beat KC and Houston. Jeez Louise
