Reich says Brissett will start, Adam Vinatieri will be the kicker moving forward

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

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.

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:

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.

    • Sadly, knowing only what we know now  ... we have JB, the Bengals will likely have Burrow, Lions will have Stafford back .... I wouldn't feel confident about any of those games. 
    • If the odds are stated to be 19% if we win out , why would that increase if we beat the Saints ? Other words , if we win out .. it's a 19% chance. It doesn't "increase" if we win Monday.
    • That may be true to an extent ... but if he skips on a QB that's available at one of our top couple picks and instead roles with JB and some mid-round QB and the Colts are mediocre again while the skipped QB goes onto be Very Good or Elite his legacy is cemented.  The only way his legacy/reputation recovers from that is if he finds an equally good QB the next draft or JB leads us to a SB (just typing the second option made me ).
    • I see some posts in this thread that would make it seem that way... I am definitely not, just want to point that out, haha! I even said in my first post on here that I could care less about the Pats fans. But I was agreeing with @King Colt ‘s OP that it did come off as rude when the fans booed, given that  team has given NE so many championships. I feel “meh” about the calls that didn’t go their way, don’t really care if this is the beginning of their downward spiral. I just didn’t expect the fans to boo and when they did my initial reaction was, wow, after all those championships? That’s rude. Not that they are the worst in the world, but definitely hypocritical if those same fans were criticizing those that booed Luck.    However, I also said I understood why they were booing, out of shock of seeing that home game winning streak disappear... same as I understood why the fans booed out of shock of hearing about Luck’s retirement. But sympathy for the Pats? Or their fans? Nah... never! 
    • You are jumping to inaccurate conclusions.  The the options in the poll were worded badly and some options were left out which skewed the results.  It could easily be interpreted as people think JB is average - below average but there aren't many better options so we are stuck with him until we are able to draft his replacement or something unlikely/crazy happens and a good QB actually hits FA.       Cut him and keep looking.  I would rather be terrible a couple years and be in position to go after top QBs until we find one, than finish 8-8 (give or take a game) and be stuck at mediocre.      See above ... at least we know and can move on and aren't stuck in mediocrity... and if they play that bad than we likely have a shot at Lawrence. I would be fine with a one win season if it meant we got Lawrence in 2021.
