Training camp is one of my favorite times of year. I love hearing about the players and seeing the videos and constantly refreshing the thread to see the tweets of the training camp. The hype rising of certain players, reading every play breakdown, hearing whose beating who in drills, which players are really shining from the fans perspective. Then going to the training camps, seeing the players up close and being able to have my own opinion on players and how they are coming along as far as development goes, seeing all the players the media has very little coverage of. I am missing it really bad this year. I would get more hyped for it then the opening day of the season and it kept me occupied for a couple weeks. Not being able to see one of the most competitive teams this franchise has had in awhile really sucks. It kinda reminds me of the year my family kinda skipped Christmas lol. I wish they would throw us a bone with more videos or even let the colts writers watch the practice from a far and tweet out giving us updates.

Agreed. This has been the strangest off season yet... no updates, no stories, hardly any threads. 

No stories?

 

The website has been jammed packed with stories for the better part of 3 weeks, maybe longer.   2-3 new stories a day typically done by positional breakdown.  They’ve been hiding in plain site, on the front page of the website, a place most posters don’t seem to visit.


Honestly, there is very little traffic on the website.  Most fans are not visiting here very much, if at all.   So these stories on the front image are getting almost no notice here.

Chris Ballard, Reich, Sirriani, and Eberflus all did interviews this week. They are all up on the colts AP. We should get more as  TC heats up and the media is able to watch TC. So far no colt veterans have tested positive.

You know, that really is my fault for not clarifying the story part. I meant hardly anyone discusses the stories and articles on here. 
 

But, lives are busy and I wonder if most members are just taking time off with no games at the moment.

Not sure how busy people are?   No way to know.   In any other year the website is typically jammed as posters show up to learn what is going on with their favorite team.   
 

I suspect the virus has driven away most of the fans.   They fear getting their hopes up for a fun season, only to have those hopes dashed if/when the season gets canceled due to the virus.   

I appreciate your response.   Thanks.

 

It’s a strange world we’re living in...

NCF is right . You have to visit other sites than just the fans forums. 

I understand we don't have the normal coverage of the media around but there are other sites for information. 

There is a specific training camp site.

My mistake, I do visit other sites for information, I was just agreeing that the site has a lot less folk around the site these days. 
 

I really miss @TKnight24’s training camp update thread. 

 

I’ll usually do a google search on the team to see headlines and stories, thanks for the info about training camp though!

    • I tend to disagree here.  Have all the guys you mentioned had better seasons than Rivers?  Yes.  Have more than 4 done it in the same year? Aside from last year, I think not (admittedly, part of that is due to the other guys being injured for long stretches of time).     Rivers has also had seasons where he was better, at least statistically, than all of the guys mentioned here.  In 2008 he led the league in passer rating and tied for lead with Brees for TDs (Brees had more yards, but also threw almost 200 more attempts and still had the same amount of TDs and a lower passer rating), that is one example where Rivers was either the best or 2nd best QB in the league for a season.  He's had other seasons where he has led the league in passing or completion percentage.     I'm not saying he's better than Peyton, Brady or Brees (the 3 guys with the best stats in NFL history)... but aside from winning SBs, he's put up better numbers than Big Ben throughout his career, he's thrown for >4,000 yards 11 times (Wilson has done it 3 times), and if he retired this year, Rodgers would likely have to play at least 3 full seasons at a high level to touch Rivers' numbers (Rodgers has 2 MVPs and the best passer rating of all-time, so he won't need to do that to get in anyway).   I do see your point... when Rivers retires he won't be considered the 'top' QB of his era.. but he's played through several waves of very solid QBs (Peyton, Brady, Brees were already established when Rivers got here -- Eli and Ben had 2 years under their belt before Rivers took the reigns from Brees, even though Rivers was drafted the same time of them), then guys like Rodgers (got to start 1 or 2 years after Rivers due to sitting on the bench behind Favre), Wilson, Luck, Newton, and now Mahommes, Burrows, Lamar Jackson, etc. have entered the league after  Rivers got started... regardless, he's been a top 10 QB through all of it, while never playing under a HOF coach or on an elite team (with the exception of 2012 and 2019).  So in 14 seasons as a starter, he's been in the top 10 on 12 occasions, and out of those 12, I think he's been at 5 or higher at least 50% of the time.
