Michael Pittman Jr game day vlog


Recommended Posts

I was confused about the hotel thing also. At first I thought maybe they go for a team meeting but why wouldn’t they do that at the facility. Has to be covid but still strange that they do that. One night isn’t going to make a difference.

All I'm saying is, many people didn't want players named AB, or Newton (base salary approx $1 million) because of "character concerns" yes or no?

 

All I'm saying is, it's not "Colt like" for this vlogging going on. Especially if the player hasn't shown anything on the field.

 

Excuses starting in 5-4-3-2-1. 

 

You're reaching. 

 

Not wanting a player because of a character concern isn't the same thing as someone with a youtube channel, unless you're saying anyone who is on YouTube or the like, has character concerns? 

 

Just stop it. You're being obnoxious.

Np. If OBJ, AB, Josh Gordon were to film around the team and was not productive. Tell me you wouldn't have a problem with that, especially if the player hasn't produced as a rookie... You stop it because the min cam wears a hat, or does anything close to Pittman, people like you always seem to attack his character and say things like "HE DOESN'T FIT OUR CULTURE". Let Cam put out a video or Dak Prescott put out a video and are not productive. 

 

So you stop it. The hypocrisy is real around here.

No I made a comparison of AB on field performance to Pittman on field performance. Which hasn't been much, although the rookie finds time to vlog.

 

If any other WR did this (Vlog) and didn't perform, everyone including you would call him out. So stop it.

 

Wow.. let me tell you something. MP got nearly 1/3 of the yards already that AB got hes entire rookie season.. and that was with a team that went to the suberbowl. MP got Rivers at age 38 with no preseason..

Have you watched even ONE of his videos? His gameday vlog is him leaving home, on the way to the game, his girlfriend during the game, then maybe him again after the game. He's not filming in the locker room or around the team. Please take a moment to actually familiarize yourself with the subject of your outrage before you start spouting nonsense.

Just like when I said the Colts should have signed Newton instead of Rivers, You and Superman amongst others called me out for making a "ridiculous" assertion.

 

Stop lying about me.

On another topic in this thread....in college the players always spend the night before a game in a hotel.  Is it not also protocol in the NFL?
 

We had a player kicked off the team a few years back for sneaking a girl into his room the night before a game at the hotel.

As far as I know without googling it, all teams in the NFL do this

they always stay at a local hotel the night before a home game. Been this way for years. 
I think most teams do it

Youre going around pointing fingers at people who haven't said anything about anyone in particular because? Because a few people don't care for the likes of Cam? AB? You keep picking the players who have mega egos in the NFL and are comparing it to a guy, wait, no, its him and his gf of 7+ years. Basically his wife at this point. 

 

Are you saying a man shouldn't pursue making videos with his significant other? Showing our children what a strong couple who works together does? 

 

Sounds more to me like a good example if anything. 

 

Its all my opinion. Oh, and very few around here have issues with team players, which is what he's doing with his gf. Being a team player. 

 

Again youre reaching and youre calling me a hypocrite and have nothing to back that up. 

 

Im an aspiring streamer/youtuber. I dont have any issues with it whether you like that or not. 

 

No. Youre a fool.

IDK maybe . . . 

This has been SOP for teams for years.

It promotes team cohesion, eliminates possible pregame incidents.  They have final positional meetings and go through last pregame walkthroughs.

I've read and heard about this for years. Plus they get some good pregame team comradery.

One last thing to add, before I leave you folks alone, another point for consideration.

 

It takes guts to put yourself out there, face a life long stuttering problem head on by speaking in front of large audiences when so much effort is involved to just speak.  
 

Takes guts, and considering the school he chose, in the city it’s in, he took up that challenge before he was even out of HS.

 

Good luck folks, hope our guy is who you were looking for, on and off the field. ✌️

I for one, enjoy their videos....

 

They seem like a sweet couple of kids and seeing their journey through the draft process and NFL life as a young couple has been interesting and a little bit of much needed fun.... especially these days.

 

 I have ZERO problem with it.

He is not the the first Colts player to have a Vlog. A couple of years ago, the Colts signed WR Rodney Adams. There was at least one prominent Colts fan who said that he did not like that a player is doing vlogs. I think the difference here is that Pittman was drafted high by the Colts. Adams was cut a couple months after being signed.

 

I don't see why anyone would have a problem with vlogs. But I am pretty open to letting folks do as they please so long as they are not breaking rules and laws. :thmup:

    • Ravens, think Jackson gets in done in playoffs, KC will be right there, Colts wont be a tough playoff out by any means either, Buffalo a year away imo.     Bears their D gives everyone problems, Robinson having another very good year at WR (Maybe top WR no one really talks about much) already beat the Bucs and their schedule is easy down the stretch also which will allow a fresh roster into the playoffs.  Seattle has looked impressive and a lot of depth, Tampa wont go down easy and Drew looking to cap career in N.O. with one last run.
    • That's a lot of work, I'm always appreciative of the people here that put that kind of effort into the forum.  So thank you.    I just wrote a post on a different topic that touches on this a little bit.  I'm not sure what to make of the receiver carousel but typically receiver production is a by-product of the QB.  Rivers has a lot to do with it as it relates to schemes etc.  We're way to shotgun dependent (75%) which takes play action out of the equation which we're built for. To me, that's because Rivers like to read the defense but it also works in reverse and makes routes and patterns easier to cover because there's no play action and NOBODY is biting on backfield run fakes from the gun.  My two cents.  Thanks again.
    • 2/3, or 4/6 is good for me. If you're taking up 25% for your top picks every year for 11% of your roster, some areas of your roster will simply be imbalanced. It also depends on what you do with in FA, and especially your strategy for other high end positions.  Not saying that's a bad financial strategy, but it is a bad locker room strategy. Not talking specifically about JJSS, just in general. If you're known as an organization that discards after rook contracts, players view you as a factory. I know it's a business, but you have to have to consider it. It would be like us moving away from Leonard, or others, after they perform well and exhaust their cheep rookie contracts.    Houston was stupid to give him up. Considered one of the biggest boneheaded moves of the years. It's why a certain coach has a bad rep. It's a position that's rotated for sure, but a lot of positions are. DL, DB, TE, RB, etc are all highly rotated. Only QB and OL are positions with little to no rotation. In Indy, we don't rotate Leonard, or some other thin positions that much, but that hurts us long term. Anyway, you have to look at averages. Just like TEs. You often list 2 starting TEs along with 3 WRs, but you don't have 2+3 on the field. You average ~1.5+2.5ish. If you're going to use 3 WR with that logic, you have to use 2 TEs, etc. and now your adding to your "22" total to normalize.   I think we both value the position the highly. We just differ on acquisition strategy. I think you have to look at all high priced and strategic positions, and have a better mix for a healthy roster. It doesn't really matter if they are drafts, UDFA, FAs, etc. so long as you have a good age, cost, experience, and skill mix. For example, Ballard has probably over drafted early/mid DEs (2nd and 3rd) round and failed. And looking at the DL in general, only one of the starting 4 are draft picks (which is the cheapest one), and the drafted depth don't look capable of stepping up. So we're in a position end of year where both starting DEs need renewal or replacement. It's a position/area where we've invested both heavy in draft capital, but have had to spend a bunch in FA as well.    Anyway, give me 2 early/mid WRs every 3 years, and 1 FA every 3 years, and some late round or UDFA project lottery tickets every year. That's what we've done. Only injury has gotten in our way from some very potent starting 3s.
    • Exactly right, play action from under center also lends itself to taking the big shots.  We're way too shotgun heavy for a team that wants to lean on the run game and set up play action.  That's part of the reason we're not getting the deep ball as much as we like.  Some people think that we need faster receivers, that's not the issue. It's two fold, it's what Rivers wants (shotgun) so we cater to it because he's the qb and he's so slow afoot by the time he hits his drop in play action the short route windows have already expired, meaning crossers and slants have entered the coverage zone, too slow.     Right now the totality of this offense is driven by one guy, I've said from week one, this team will go as far as Philip can take it.  What offenses fail to realize is zone read is totally pointless if the QB is neve going to keep it.  That makes it easier for the defense to read and react as well.  So not only is it easier for Philip to read a defense but its also easier for the defense to read Philip.    I'll close by saying, I never wanted Rivers here but now that he is, I do like him personally, and he can still be wildly effective when protected.  That scenario will only take us so far.  I have a strong suspicion who our QB may be for 2021 but I'm going to sit on that for a bit...
