Are we the 1988 Colts ( only better) ?

Recommended Posts

In 1988 we went 9 and 7 .We had a right tackle named Kevin Call...…. A  center named Ray Donaldson (Pro Bowl 4 straight seasons from 1986 to 1989.)  ……. A left tackle named Chris Hinton (named to seven Pro Bowls and recognized as a three-time All-Pro, along with becoming the first offensive lineman to appear in the Pro Bowl as a rookie. After retiring, Hinton was inducted into the Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor ) Averaged almost 150 yards a game rushing ( Had some guy named Dickerson who in 1988 had 1659 yard rushing AND 377 yards in reception yards ) …………. Here in 2019 we seem to have some budding stars on our offensive line . We are averaging right now 128.7 yards a game rushing. So do we start with our running game and Jacoby ain't exactly playing to bad either (he is #2 in NFL in TD's ) .So we can build on a running game behind an ever improving O-line . So 9-7 (or better ) ? …….GO COLTS !!!!!

And by April, 1990, the Colts traded Hinton for the chance to draft Jeff George.  I said at the time- doesn’t matter if the QB can throw a 100 yard, on the mark pass- he can’t be good if he’s laying on his back every play...

 

I trust that Ballard won’t repeat that, and trade away our Best Lineman for a chance to draft a potentially good QB.

It’s a Fan Forum message board.  Who knows what lurks in the minds of Fanatics?

By "stuff," I meant the idea that CB might trade Q.

I thought you meant the original thread.  I just meant that I trust CB is smarter than the 1990 Colts.  He certainly appears so.  The original poster mentioned Hinton. The Colts traded Hinton when he was All Pro.

They are more like the 87 or 95 Colts IMO.


The Colts 1995 defense was probably the best of any Indianapolis Colts squad. 
 

Anyone remember E. Johnson’s hit on Steve Young?
