A "true blue fan" roots for the team and not the player. This team is losing games due to a single player.

The last I checked AV didn’t gift the Steelers 13 pts or throw all those INT against the dolphins. Dolphins didn’t even have to do anything to be in FG range.

The real question should be, when was Cain relevant?

I had high hopes for him but somehow he regressed from his red shirt year

That was a team loss

100% with ya!

 

 

Disagree, it’s not all AV’s fault. 

I agree 

    The only time that I ever questioned my loyalty to the Colts was after the team cut my guy Ken Dilger

Total nonsense. How many more games is he going to cost us? No accountability.

It's not a horrible question.   Maybe the spirit of the post was though.

It is fair to wonder how many games AV may cost the team.  Especially a team that plays close games.   

No question he lost us the Charger game.

In Pitt, he had a chance to win it.   He failed.  But he didn't cost the team the game alone.  

 

I hope he gets his head on straight and has a decent second half of the season.

Jacoby did indeed practice in full today. So as long as there is no setback he will play. Something to watch is Doyle DNP with a shoulder. Maybe he hurt it spiking the ball to hard lol. My guess is it’s just minor since he finished the game. Leonard was limited with a abdomen issue.

This is not directed at anyone, but did the thought even occur to anyone that with all the adversity the Colts have had from losing Luck, Brissett, injuries to WR’s, CB, FS and Leonard the Colts at 5-4 should be commended? 
 

They’ve already exceeded my expectations for the season and I’m by no means a Homer.

I did not know there were rules on what defines a colts fan, been a colts fan since 1953 in baltimore and indy and just finding out there are rules that define who is a fan

There aren’t rules that define a Colts Fan. 
 

It’s hard to believe some of the posters on this forum are really Colts fans,  when it is blatantly obvious their M.O. is to bash the Colts when the chips are down.  It is their “get off”, so to speak. Maybe, they were bullied as a child. :dunno:

Brissett is probably starting all next year too.

They have to keep propagating the myth that Ballard is a genius GM for making the Brissett trade with New England.  And Reich has said that Brissett is a top 20 QB so many times that he is starting to believe it himself.

These guys have now "settled in" and have a vested interest in protecting their previous decisions. They will propagate the status quo, adding incremental improvements and protecting their jobs to the detriment of the Colts team. We can expect no real change from these guys...change will have to come from Big Jim.

I hope you are joking.

If not, you may want to consider medication.

 

Get yourself some of those "left-handed" cigarettes.

By simple definition of their being only 32 teams there are literally several kickers available that are having a better statistical year than he is.

 

But who's healthy?  That's why more than 32 kickers are playing.

 

But your point is well-taken.  There aren't m(any) healthy kickers doing WORSE than Vinny.  This is just a snakebit season for the Colts.  :(

 

Crazy that we're in the playoff hunt.  :dunno:

It's not that people are wrong in their opinion, it's just how they choose to communicate their opinion.

 

Unnecessary insults, jabs at the team, venting in the form of lashing out...  it gets tiring for us regulars.  :scorebad:

Reich saying Vinny is going through a phase is kind of laughable. What they don’t realize is how much this effects season ticket sales ect. They look really stupid in the way they are defending him.

A phase ? He has been bad for awhile.  Lol. It's going to get real interesting his next bad miss , because it's coming soon  . If they don't win this week it doesn't matter anyway. Too late.

It’s okay, because the Colts lost half the fan base when Manning was cut. Good riddance to them, not Manning of course.

Season ticket sales happen before the season starts.    Why do you think Andrew waited until 2 weeks before the season to retire.

I can tell you from experience coaches tune out the stands on game day 
  Good coaches at any level do not concern themselves with fans

    The loss of ticket sales might hurt Irsay but not FR and CB

 

   Since the Colts have a Season Ticket waiting list Those tickets will be sold

No.  Fans are going to come to games.   If the franchise retiring didn't effect sales,   the fact our kicker is struggling won't.    Have you ever been to a game?   Adam didn't get booed for his misses

I was talking about the entire organization. Reich might not worry about but you can bet he is losing credibility talking about Adam going through a phase.

I see posts by people in here about Colts fans or how a Colts fan should be. Only problem I have ever had in here and it is only with a handful of fans is they seem to only post a lot when we lose and disappear when we win. Strange to me, I have noticed that with a few. They almost seem to get some kind of enjoyment out of us losing and bashing the team. Also too much negativity sucks, being critical of the team after a loss is fine though IMO. If you are going to do that then praise the team when we win. As far as who starts at QB, I have said all along as long as we are winning I really do not care who starts. Brissett gives us the best chance of winning this year so why not pull for the guy to succeed instead of bashing him?

Well Malik Hooker’s quote yesterday kind of shows that they do believe it. I bet they have talked to a lot of the captains to gauge how the locker room feels.

So....Just how many captains do you think are on the team?  

 

Hint: it's not a lot.

Amen. I can't believe how whiny and unappreciative our fanbase is, to be brutally honest. 

 

Without our kicking problems and an unfortunate injury to our starting QB, we could very well be 8-1. And all we hear is complaining. 

 

Go watch the Cleveland Browns people. They got "talent".

Despite Vinny struggling, had Brissett not got injured I think we would've been 7-2. I don't think Brissett loses to Miami anyway, so 6-3 at worse.

    • I wouldn't be the least bit upset if the entire franchise folded
    • what the organization needs to do is stop making training camp family friendly and bust theses guys *ses and toughen them up. If you cant handle the work, you dont make the 53. no rest days. you can't go, you get cut. In the end, you either have one tough team that knows what is expected of them or no team with no false expectations.
