Where at in Southern Kentucky?

Franklin area. My brother lives there and we fish the local ponds or small lakes.

We might also venture into Tennessee as well. 

These ponds are not fished by the public so the fishing is fantastic.

Yeah I been there a few times when I was a teenager.  

I lived in Oak Grove Tn and was all over the area both sides of the KY-TN line. 

We spent most of our weekends at Beach Bend drag strip in Bowling Green.

Because they're playing Lamar Jackson and Baltimore, no doubt...UGH!!!

 

True...once Lamar arrived...we have been getting a lot of BAL games...which actually makes sense...he has a cult following here. 

 

But it seems like we always get the Browns games. I guess it's because of the contingent of AFC North fans in Louisville (CLE, PIT and CIN).

Louisville was a Browns town for many years when televised games became more popular.  Of course, there were no teams at that time in Cincy or Indy or Nashville.  Closest team was Chicago, but they were on another network, I believe.

 

I'm reluctant to go to a bar to watch the Colts game due to the pandemic.  I wish the league would make exceptions on regional coverages and make the Sunday Ticket free this season.  Wishful thinking, I know.

It would have been a great PR move if they had. Not to mention...it would have boosted ratings...heading into their re-up negotiations. But I am guessing it was logistically possible.

Probably so.  I use Roku and checked to see if Sunday Ticket was available where I am, and it's not.  Only through Direct TV or some other service, which I'm not switching to.  Guess I'll have to hope for a few games this season and watch highlights.

For those of you with DirecTV, Sunday Ticket is having  a free preview weekend this week. I dropped ST when Luck bailed out, and won't subscribe again, but I'll probably tune in for a quarter or so of the Colts' game. Weather is still too nice to be stuck inside on a Sunday afternoon.

Hello, new member here, old time charger fan...now, a rivers fan!!!

Got my Colts hat ready!!!

Is there any link to the games via the Radio?

Not sure I will get the Sunday Ticket again and would love to be able to just kick back, have a beer or shot of tequila or two and enjoy listening to Rivers chew up the Defenses each week.

 

Thanks in advance and GO COLTS!!!

With CBS all access can you pick which area of coverage you want or are you restricted to your areas coverage?

 

Thanks in advance.

I'd assume that you'd only get whatever is showing in your area. I don't think they'd give access to half the Sunday games for 5.99/mo.

 

When you sign up, it probably uses your IP address to locate where you are and determine what it shows you.

I always thought Teddy Bridgewater was more popular. No? @Barry Sears

 

I will always be a fan of Teddy.

You can try using the direct tv streaming option.  Just need to type in an apartment address.  I live in an apartment so no worries.  Cut cable and direct tv a year ago.  I use the Roku for Sunday ticket.

 

Hope that helps.

He was until Jackson came along...especially after winning the MVP.

 

I'm a fan of Teddy, too...great young man and hope he does well in Carolina.

Teddy was more popular...but he sort of fell off once he got hurt...and then Lamar started doing his thing.

 

There are some fans who are fans of Teddy for what he did in college. While Lamar may have won the Heisman, Teddy was more successful in college. That Sugar Bowl performance against that great defense was fantastic! And he was humble while doing it. I'm a big fan of his and I am not a Louisville Cardinals fan. (I'm a Stanford Cardinal fan.)

Little hack to get it to work is check different random apartment addresses i.e (blah blah blah unit 203) and if it says you are able to get the streaming package then temporarily change a credit card to that address, make the purchase and set it back.

Hey guys, hopefully someone has some advice. Huge Colts fan in California looking for way to watch the Colts game live, or after. Use to catch the games on reddit, seems that option is unavailable now. Any ideas or suggestions. Tough loss today and even more maddening not being able to watch the game!! 

 

If you're ok watching the games immediately after they end, get NFL Game Pass.

Lol. I feel the same way about not having been able to watch the Vikings game.

    • No doubt any move is a gamble of some kind or another. If its an older guy, is the player injury prone or on the downhill side of his career? If a younger guy, will he still perform with serious coin in his pocket for the first time? But in the end, you have to look at recent production. If the guy has a good rep for being a hard worker and improved his play such that he's become an impact player, he's worth the gamble, IMO. Maybe not for a contract longer than 3 years, but I like taking a shot at an ascending talent.    More importantly, if you believe, as I do, that the defense HAS to get much better at rushing the passer, especially since our D coordinator seems to have a serious allergy to blitzing, then the push to find that missing piece has to take its place front and center over other needs. 
    • This kid could make things really interesting and turn that flat-butt 4-3 into something really special with corners who can press. The scheme could be really sneaky good with that personnel. 
    • I don't know who else we really need to have a bounce back year, especially on D.  Along our DL, we either need to bring back Houston and Autry or figure out how to replace them - but both had pretty solid years.  Lewis was better than he had been his first couple years.  Buckner was a stud and Stewart was solid.  Having Turay come back healthy and seeing Banogu improve would be helpful, but they both played so little last year and hadn't done enough previously to indicate last year was a 'down year'.  At LB, Leonard was a first-team all pro again and very solid.  Walker was solid but saw his snap count decrease and Oke had his ups and downs while seeing his snap count dramatically increase (as @EastStreet pointed out,  not only did his snaps go way up compared to his rookie year but the way he was used was different).  I doubt we see Walker back, so it'd be nice to see Oke improve for sure.  Then in the secondary we had solid play from Rhodes, Carrie, Willis and Moore for the most part.  Blackmon was solid (especially early on, but he seemed to digress as the year went on - IMO, to be expected as he was raw coming in and was coming off a knee injury, I don't think he was supposed to get near the snaps he did last year, but we know what happened with Hooker and sort of forced Blackmon into the fire).  RYS had a down year, but I don't see why he can't bounce back - he's got the physical traits - I tend to think he battled some mental demons after some P-Int penalties, and hopefully he can refine his technique some and come back strong.     In all, on the D, I think we're in good shape.  Keep in mind, it seemed like 'Flus called the D a bit differently last year than he had in earlier years here.  We are, overall (aside from Houston, Autry, Rhodes) very young on D.  We had a very weird off-season last year, which (IMO) is critical for younger guys.  I can't help but think it didn't help the likes of guys like RYS and Oke who saw their roles increase and change (IMO, OKe's change was more than a 'slight' change) between their rookie year and year 2.     On O, ideally we'll see solid QB play from Wentz (I won't go as far as to saying he needs a 'bounce back' year as he hasn't been in Indy before and it sounds like there was a lot of toxicity in Philly, hopefully all he needs in a change of scenery and a reunion with Reich).  Our OL was solid, so as long as we can replace AC at LT I think we'll be OK there.  We had pretty consistent play from Hines and Wilkins throughout the year and JT got dramatically better as the season wore on -- I think if those guys can start up where they left off, we're more than fine at RB.  TY didn't have his best year, but he's be declining for about 3 years now, so if we bring him back, all we can do is hope he stays healthy and I think we'll be in OK shape.  Pittman missed some time with his leg compartment syndrome, but was solid down the stretch, so I don't think we need him to 'bounce back', just continue on his trajectory and he's gonna be solid.  Pascal was solid and I think we've pretty much seen his ceiling, so he just needs to stay solid.  It would be sweet to see Campbell and/or Patmon to emerge, but don't think we need them to 'bounce back' as we've never gotten high level results from them to begin with.     Then on STs, we were pretty solid all around.  Would like to see Blankenship add a bit more umphf to his kicks, but he was solid and Sanchez was solid punting.  The coverage and return units were solid overall.   So really, I think we need a comeback or bounce back year from RYS and maybe Oke... but overall, I don't think we need a 'bunch of them.'       I agree, pretty much  have to temper expectations on Speed being from a small school.  He did really improve on STs last year and he got his praise any time Ballard or any coaches spoke about him.  I get the feeling Ballard and staff are willing to use patience with project players (Ballard states that fairly regularly).  With Oke, Walker, Leonard and then Franklin who has more playing experience at LB - I don't think there was really much need to rush Speed into an LB role last year.  He got plenty of ST snaps and did well there, hopefully boosting his confidence that he can play at NFL level while still refining his LB technique in practices and the film room.     While I would rather see guys like Adams and Glasgow on STs - I don't think it is terrible to have them on the roster primarily as STers but being our 5th and 6th ranked LBs on the depth chart as well.  Meaning, if we went into the season with Leonard, Oke, Speed and Franklin as our top 4 with Adams and Glasgow as STers but listed as 5 and 6 on depth chart, I don't think it'd be the worst thing (especially considering we predominantly play with only 2 LBers on the field).  So, sure it'd be nice to bring in a mid-late round draft pick or sign a decent FA for fairly cheap, but I'd rather see us dishing out money to bring in a solid LT, a playmaker at TE (and maybe WR), retain Rhodes, ensure the DL was solid (either by bringing back Houston and Autry or by getting a guy like Bud Dupree/JJ Watt/etc.), and add OL depth.  In otherwords, regardless of if we bring Walker back or not, I don't think LB is a top 5 position of concern right now.   I don't think Walker is going to command a ton, but he was 15th in the NFL in tackles in 2018 (124), tied for 28th (105) in 2019 and in the top 50 in 2020 (92).  He's a pretty productive player and a solid one - so he's going to demand significantly more than he was getting as a 5th round pick on his rookie contract.  And yes, he definitely wants to play more and I think his biggest issue here is his lack of athleticism.  You're right, he'll probably play more in a 3-4 D and he will likely be offered more money by a team where he'll play a lot than what Ballard will offer him.    See the last line from Ballard in this article:  https://www.colts.com/news/chris-ballard-philip-rivers-ty-hilton-xavier-rhodes-2020-season-press-conference (Ballard on Linebacker Anthony Walker: "I have a special relationship with Anthony Walker. Selfless. Team guy. Rare leader. I hope he gets into coaching one day or scouting. Mark my words on this: if Anthony Walker gets into coaching, he will be a head football coach in the National Football League. And if he gets into scouting, he'll be a general manager. He's brilliant — absolutely brilliant, and he's made of the right stuff. I know Anthony wants to play more. We value Anthony. We'll see how it works out. I want good for Anthony."   My guess is Walker is gone.
