The years we lost in the playoffs was because teams could run on us and control TOP.

 

Everyone ran on us in 2006 until the playoffs. The 2005 defense was truly elite with Corey Simon

Rob Morris played a big role in the playoffs that year.

Yeah when I look at Indianapolis players since 1984 to me Freeney is top 4. I would only have ahead of him:

1. Manning

2. Marvin

3. Reggie

4. I would put Freeney here

That’s fair. I’d reckon Vinny could be considered in the top 4 as well.

Freeney & Mathis, IMO, Best pair of pass rushers ever!

That's why I would like to see them go into ROH together as a "TEAM".

Oh well!

Of course! Thanks...

Yeah for some reason I thought Mathis only had like 2 more sacks as a Colt. I got it backwards lol. It was Freeney who had 2.5 more sacks overall but his last 18 were with different teams.

Mine isn't either haha . I would love to see Bob Sanders get in. He will never make the HOFame because he didn't play long enough and was injury prone, but he belongs in the Colts Ring of Honor. Without him we don't win the SB in 2006 and he won DPOY in 2007 something Freeney or Mathis never did.

Of course you can't put everyone in the Ring of Honor but my list would be regarding Indianapolis players:

Peyton

Marvin

Reggie

Freeney

Dickerson

Edge

Faulk

Mathis - will be in now

Saturday

Hinton

Harbaugh

and Bob

If I am not mistaken all those guys are in except Bob.

I would agree with that list, would be a shame if Bob didn't make it just because of an injury shortened career, he was a game changer!

I would say eventually Andrew Luck belongs too but it is too early for that. He was great at times here and overall a very good QB. He got us 4 playoff wins and 4 seasons of 10+wins. Vinny will get in as well - that is a no brainer, outside of that I don't think I have left anyone out?

Sorry, I'm not ready to go there yet.

Still POed about how he exited.

Maybe after some more time...

I still get sick to my stomach when I come across highlights and interviews, someday I'll get over it...

maybe.

Understandable. I am not happy either about how he left us.

Me too. I loved Mathis, he defined what a true Colt is.

Dallas Clark? Probably didn't do enough, but he was a smashing player....

True, but Mathis should've won it in 2013 over Luke Kuechly!

    • He's got plenty of money.   I think the only way he would come back is if he had the itch to play and thought he could win.   Maybe if Rivers and the Colts have a good season the chance at winning would be there.   Very doubtful that he ever plays again.   I'd give it a 10% chance.
    • You are reading it incorrectly.  He is saying that he said he was the first to say that Luck's injury (shoulder) was due to a snowboarding accident and everyone laughed at him.  He then says that he said, 3 weeks before Luck retired, that Luck was going to retire.  
    • Snowboarding is an expensive recreational activity - weed is costly.
    • Reich intends to pit the two against one another in what many would consider Vinatieri's specialty: high-stress situations. The Colts coach explained that he will do his best to fabricate those situations during and after practice. One can be sure that without the added test of preseason games, the kickers' performance during these high-stress situations will go a long way in determining who wins the competition.   “They'll get all of their normal routines," Reich said. "But as a team, we'll create more team atmosphere, team kicking drills that will be heightened and weighted more heavily in the kicking competition."  Though Reich didn’t submit a “favorite” to win the battle, McLaughlin surely has the leg up in that he’s a somewhat proven NFL commodity. Last season, the undrafted free agent performed admirably in what amounted to a four-game audition with the Colts after Vinatieri succumbed to injury. Arriving in Indianapolis in the high-pressure role of replacing the kicker many consider the greatest of all time, McLaughlin drilled 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 of his extra points in those games. His performance in Vinatieri’s stead earned him a one-year contract with the Colts immediately following the season.    Of course, the man they call “Hot Rod” brings an impressive resume to the battle as well. During four years at SEC powerhouse Georgia, Blankenship was a model of accuracy and consistency. He connected on all 200 of his extra points and finished his Bulldog career an 82.5% field goal kicker and the school’s all-time leading scorer.  For his efforts -- and to keep him away from other teams -- the Colts handed Blankenship a $20,000 signing bonus, a hefty number among undrafted free agents. Despite McLaughlin’s incumbent status, Blankenship’s price tag and Reich comments foretell would should be an equal and open competition for the job.    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/07/29/colts-vinatieri-era-indy-seemingly-over-mclaughlin-blankenship-battle-job/5536851002/
