Dang it NFL Network Colts have fans also .

Recommended Posts

Living in NY Metro area is can be hard to see Colts games . I actually started to keep track of this last 2-3 years because I started to notice it . And yup they did what they always seem to do . They are replaying the Colts-Bills game at 2 O'clock IN THE MORNING . But Cowboys or Giants or Steelers replays always seem to get prime time . AGAIN Colts have fans too.....Just like the Cowboys,Giants and Steelers …..Apologize for the rant !!!!!

NFL Gamepass is worth the $99/yr. You can view preseason games live and reg/postseason games on delay. No commercials either!

Students (college) pass is good as well.  No pre-season, but you get all regular season games live - out of market.  No replay, but only $99.  Just have to know name and college the student attends and you pay up - hopefully with their permission beforehand, lol.

Giants, Cowboys, and Steelers get prime time...surely you're not really questioning the validity of this...

 

Until further notice, it isn't yet hate speech for a corporation to honor it's commitment to its stakeholders by trying to maximize its profit opportunity.

I kind of like it that the sports networks don't know we exist, and most can't name two Colts after Luck.

 

BTW, you can get a 7 day free trial of NFL Game Pass and watch tonight.  (If you have Direct TV, the game is on live on channel 212-1).

That is a good thing . Being a bit of an unknown does have advantages .

Not speaking for the OP but I don’t think the validity of it is being questioned more than making the point that it can be frustrating at times. Obviously they are going to show the teams that will likely get more ratings during prime time; this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t get under your skin from time to time as a Colts fan living outside of the area.

Nothing ever good comes from that thing.  Earlier this year I used mine to go into the future so I could watch the Colts OTAs and I accidentally bumped into Andrew’s calf.  

 

He was doing great until then...

 Because you are able to catch everything the first time. 
That explains a lot.

I'm in NC also and was upset when couldn't see it. I think it was only shown around NY as their game was blacked out to them per something on NFL channel at game time.

    • Good question.   I think you draft a QB in the early rounds (round 1 or 2) if you truly believe in that QB, in which case, it's a calculated decision to cause some unrest with the team initially, with the hopes that the new QB is the answer at the position.   However, if you draft a QB in the later rounds, I'm sure that the team and JB will understand that it's for the purpose of developing a QB and not for immediately supplanting the #1 QB. JB is safe and the team understands who their #1 QB is.
    • Playing Kelly for one game though isn’t going to really tell them much. But if he has worked hard I don’t have a problem giving him some time in the jags game to reward him for his hard work.
    • But this gives you so much valuable information as an organization, it clears up so much.  You can go into the draft will a much better direction.  If Chad wasn't close to as good to Jacoby then why keep him?  You can find much more stable backups than Chad.  Heck, we already have one of those guys in Hoyer.   1.  We have a guy with huge upside, so maybe we do get Love and see if he develops and gives Chad a run for his money.  Also, Chad my screw up again.   2.  Be aggressive in the draft because neither are going to be the guy.  They can fight it out for the backup.  See if you can get something for Jacoby or Chad.   3.  See number 2.     Show the team that the Colts walk the walk and that there will be competition at every level 
    • I couldn't agree more.  Who gets drafted where is so important to that QB's chances for success for all the reasons you mentioned above.   I think the Colts would be one of those franchises where a rookie would develop quickly and could wind up starting sooner rather than later.  Regarding Kelly none of us know anything about his leadership abilities.  He certainly looked in command of the team in the limited time we saw him play.  He's been squeaky clean this year off the field so maybe he has settled down.  We will see I guess.  Colin Cowherd had an interesting segment on his show today.  He talked about the success rate in the NFL of QB's coming out of Major programs with 4 and 5 star recruits versus the mid tier programs and the 3 star recruits.  The mid tier programs won in his analysis and this year he actually compared Burroughs to Love as an example of a power school to a mid tier school.  Interesting listen if you can find it.  He too feels where they land will determine how successful they become.  I have a feeling Love is going to get a lot of love leading up to the draft.  If he truly turns out to be Ballards guy I believe he is going to have to go out and get him.  JMO.
    • What about drafting a QB? Doesn't that tell JB he isn't the guy, and is just keeping the seat warm for when the new guy is ready?   If Kelly starts JB will get over it, and the team will embrace the staff for doing everything possible for this season and the future of the team.
