Eason would probably prefer his college # 10.

 

Guess Fountain wouldn't budge. 9 is a cool number though

Gimme that #28 jersey!

That 28 Taylor looks real nice! I won't lie... this is my favorite number of the rookies.

 

9 on Eason would look nice too if he makes the team... and then turns into a franchise QB.

More of a teen number guy for WRs

I kind of agree.  However, with the Colts current situation it's not really an option, lol.  I think 11 would be the only real option for Pittman, and I'd like that, but he'd probably have to pay up a little bit for it.  Numbers are scarce with how many numbers we have retired or "reserved" which I expect will have to change eventually.

 

10 - Reece Fountain

11 - Chad Williams

12 - too soon?

13 - TY Hilton

14 - Zach Pascal

15 - Parris Campbell

16 - Ashton Dulin

17 - Philip Rivers

18 - retired

19 - retired

 

80 - Trey Burton

81 - Mo Alie-Cox

82 - retired

83 - Marcus Johnson

84 - Jack Doyle

85 - Xavier Grimble (and now Patmon)

86 - Michael Pittman Jr

87 - not retired but no one since Reggie Wayne

88 - not retired but no one since Marvin Harrison

89 - retired

I already feel sorry for the broadcaster who had to navigate Pittman-Patmon, 86-85.   They’re basically identical in size, each roughly 6’4” and 225.  And their style of play is somewhat the same.   
 

Sooner or later, this is going to happen.  “Touchdown!  Touchdown Pittman!  Michael Pittman with the great catch!   No!  Wait!   It’s NOT Pittman,  it’s Patmon!   Dez Patmon with the touchdown!”

 

The clock is ticking on this one....

  I was thinking of my fellow Pocketeer when discussing 85

I don't know if I wanted Taylor in the 28 or 32.  Both are close to his 23.  Just finish closing in the 3 & you have 8 so 23 to 28.  Flip the 23 and you have 32.  Both are in touch with where his college number was and both are 2 HOF former Colts backs.  Edge & Marshall.  I'll take either.

I really was expecting 32 for Taylor. I like the 20s better though I think. I'm probably going to order this jersey asap so hopefully he doesn't change numbers.

 

Does anyone know if Colts.com or Fanatics or anyone do jersey exchanges in these situations? I wouldn't think so, but I guess I could see it.

That was a normal call for Bob Lamey.

I was kind of wanting 32 as well but I'd probably always be seeing Edge.  His running style seems more like Faulk, so I'm fine with the 28.  Feels like a "faster" number.  Lol.

I know I probably should not have chimed in on this thread.   

 

I really couldn't care less about what numbers players choose to have.  I think retired jersey numbers should be the only ones off limit.

He cant wear 6 as a WR, has to be a teen number or the 80's

I was going to say this. I'm pretty sure only QBs, kickers, and punters can have single digits.

Wide receivers can wear single digits during training camp and preseason games but not in regular season games

Who was the last relevant receiver to wear 86 in the last decade, Hines Ward? I hope Pittman keeps it, too many receivers hoarding all the teen numbers. 

It's definitely Ward, who retired in 2011

Dennis Northcutt retired in 2009

Brian Finneran retired in 2010

 

The rest aren't relevant (Reggie Brown 2009, David Nelson 2014, Vincent Brown 2015, Rishard Matthews 2012, Michael Spurlock 2012, Darvin Adams 2011, Marquis Bundy 2018, Stephen Burton 2011, Kris Durham 2011, Lance Long 2012, Solomon Patton 2014, Isaiah Stanback 2012, Andrew Turzilli 2016, LaRon Byrd 2016, Nelson Spruce 2016, Paul Turner 2018)

 

Darius Slayton, James Wright, Mack Hollins, Dontrelle Inman, Jester Weah, Nick Easley, and Malik Taylor are all still active players who might become relevant.

    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business. 
    • I've never heard of any of these guys besides Levy and Kush, so I have no idea if they are even good or not.
    • No problem on the length of the post.   I did know of Dodds in 2012 when I started following the NFL Draft closely most because of the draft that the Seahawks did that got them Wagner and Wilson. It was looked very poorly upon early and criticized before being graded the best draft in 2012 after the season was over. You are correct I didn't know of Morocco Brown until Ballard signed him from the Redskins.    To me, it is pretty much SB or bust now. I went through 14 years on the Colts with Peyton, a top 3 QB of all time, and only won one SB because we shared the conference with the greatest coach/QB combination of all time. Fast forward a year when we are fortunate to get another franchise QB, Irsay hires a GM/Coach combo that has no idea what they are doing, we don't protect Luck, he gets injured, and he retires not only halfway into his career at 29.   Now QBs like Mahomes, Watson, Mayfield, Allen, and Lamar are either elite QBs for other teams in the conference, or leading their teams to the playoffs every year. Meanwhile, we had a one year band-aid with Rivers, and he retired on us. We lost our LT to an early retirement, we lost a decent amount of coaches, and we'll probably lose at least one of Dodds and Brown next year. For what? A playoff win in 2018?   I paid my dues as a fan with Manning and Luck. A top 3 QB of all-time and a top 5 QB that retired in his twenties. 20 years combined and one SB win. That's it. I was robbed of 10 years of QB play from a top 5 QB that would of kept us contending right now if it weren't for a shoddy GM. I don't want to go through this part of the journey anymore. I want to contend every year. I want to win another SB. 1 SB win with 20 combined years of Manning and Luck isn't good enough.
