Sightseeing at the Luke

Recommended Posts

I've been to plenty of games but never have done anything but get carried away pregaming while tailgating. Is there any must see things in the stadium anyone would suggest? Is the super bowl trophy on display anywhere?

Been to Lucas several times but have never seen the trophy on display anywhere, but with the crowds I may have walked right past it and not even noticed. I’m guessing Irsay has it at his mansion or on display at the 56th street practice facility with all of his other expensive collections?

 

Surely you’ve seen the Peyton Manning statue outside? It’s a must see if not, I usually have a few words with it pre and post game, kind of a ritual now I guess.(people look at me weird , but I don’t  care.)Spent a while there the night Luck retired. Sad day.
 

Theres the Lucas Oil Dragster on display that I’m sure you’ve seen, along with a few other Lucas Oil displays.....there might be more but with the crowds it’s usually a struggle to get grub/drinks and get to my seat.

ST Elmos is always a must. If you are a big meat eater Fogo Dechao is a great place but be prepared to eat. They have some decent bars to go to, I really enjoy Punch bowl social, brothers and Howl at the moon. There is also the slippery noodle in the area if you're into blues. The circle center monument is always cool along with the museum at the speedway. If you go north there is topgolf which is a blast along with all sort of indoor go cart places.

Something I've done at several stadiums of all sorts (football, baseball, hockey, bball) is to take a nice walk around the entire place after the game for a few pictures and to see if there's anything interesting I probably missed. They usually don't shut the place down for 2/3 hrs after games.

If in Indy , St Elmo’s is a must. That and Peter Luger’s in NY are my favorites . Not sure where the Colts 2006 trophy is, maybe with Ringo’s drum set !

If you want to see the 1970 Super Bowl 5 trophy , it resides in Baltimore at the Babe Ruth Museum. Occasionally , they have opportunities to take pictures with the trophy.

If you like eating, St Elmos like others have said. A few mile drive gets you to Iaria's if you like Italian. If you like drinking, Slippery Noodle if you've never been. 9 Irish Brothers is good food and drink. If you like to walk, the canal walk, or just bar crawl to and from the circle. If with a bunch of guys, the Red Garter is close. A bunch of Colts used to hang out there in the late 80s to mid 90s lol.

    • So the head to head matchup doesn’t mean anything? That’s kind of strange.
    • Gonna disagree on the underlying premise here. Reich has been building the offense around a scheme, more than a person. Sure play calling is subject to personnel, but Reich doesn't want to build something predicated on a person. He wants guys, QB included, that fit his offensive scheme.  The things that are causing him to hold onto the ball a long time, are the real issues, and are not exactly easy to solve. They are the same things he's been struggling with consistently since college. Again, IMO, Reich wants to build more around a scheme, not a player. Do you really think he wants to change his coaching scheme/identity?    Also, on elite slot guy, Brissett has struggled to hit open slots all year in the seam +5 yards, and especially +10. The seam is prime time locale for slots and TEs, and JB simply missed them most of year. Plenty of struggles in this area before injuries took their toll, and plenty of all-22 shots showing open guys in the seam even after the injuries. You can look at Nextgen's passing charts on JB and see the same thing.   Hypothetically speaking, what specifically is needed to promote JB's strengths. We already have a top 5ish OL and running game. We had two pretty good TEs most of the year. Sure we had injury issues with WRs, but we still had plenty of open guys even with replacement guys.    Reich's O is already a lot of short passes, and occasional deep shots. The deep shots aren't necessarily to an area though (some are), that's more a Chud type O. So you're basically saying mask his inability to be accurate, and Reich should change his core scheme principal instead of finding a player to fit his offensive philosophy?  Don't agree here. JB simply didn't go deep a lot early. They tried to go deep more later, but simply was not successful. Take a look at the Nextgen weekly charts.    You also need to take into account that teams started playing us different after they got tape on JB. They started zoning more, which JB also struggled with, even with WRs getting open. They also started focusing on the run and daring him to pass, playing farther off the line. Even some of the worst passing Ds gave him significant trouble. There are very real reasons why he was turned into a game manager several games.  To wrap this up, he's no AR, but he's also deficient in a lot of areas and not a lot of other guys either. His average rank for instance in the 4 core QB measurements (YPG, QBR, Comp%, AVG) are 27th IIRC. While even a game manager QB like Jimmy G's average was 9th. I'm just not sure a coach, or an organization should scrap or change drastically, the scheme of the coach they hired to install that scheme. Not sure that they should be pressed into augmenting personnel on either side of the ball to mask deficiencies for a guy that might not fit the teams O scheme in the first place. Would you ask Andy Reid to change his scheme to fit JB?
    • I just can't see it. We don't have the pieces to have a QB just manage a game. 
    • Yes, Oakland had Record: 7-9 with an SOS of .482 Indy had record: 7-9 with an SOS of .492   So they get the nod.
