I agree, he never said she disowned him so it is a bit misleading. She just wasn't happy with his play.

I don't think it was his play as much as it was he didn't look like he was having fun

As you all know by now, I've been following this team just since Philip was signed a few months ago, and I have to say, this is as fun a team to watch and follow as any I can remember in a long, long time. And not just because of grandma above, but everything I've read, seen and heard has already brought me tons of smiles and laughs. Sure, coming off of wasting a decade and a half of my life on the "Keystone Bolts" plays a part in that, but still, there's a genuinely fun element to this team. Irsay, Ballard, Reich and the rest of them aren't kidding when they talk about making sure they bring in the "right" kind of people to this team. You can see it and hear it consistently. They must have a real blast doing what they do together, because it really does show.

Expectations around here in this city have been high since the 2003 season. Since then we have been to 4 AFC Title games (03, 06, 09, 2014) and 2 SB's (06, 09) and won a SB (06). Once Luck took over for Peyton we really didn't lose a beat for the 1st 3 years going to another AFC Title game in 2014. With Rivers here now most of our expectations are once again winning the division and at least getting back to that Final 4. We take losses around hard so what you read last week after losing to the Jags, don't let it shock you. How were the fans in SD/LA overall since Rivers has been there which was roughly the mid 2000's?

The fans I got to know were very much like fans I've known everywhere else, and most of them great people. I really miss a lot of them, too. And like I've told them before, I really do hope - for them - that they can one day enjoy what so many of us have enjoyed elsewhere, that being a championship team and season. Because they really do deserve it.

 

I mean, I went through the ridiculousness of following that inept group of losers that own and run that team (into the ground) for 16 years, yes, but so many of them have had to put up with that crap for 30, 40, 50 or more years. Just torture, utter torture.

 

But they've stayed every bit as passionate about their Bolts through all that time as any diehard fan of any other team. So yes, they deserve it. And if it ever does happen in my lifetime, I'll be incredibly happy. For them.

    • Like Dallas or NE ?   I like the idea of trading Jacoby. Both Dallas and NE may be in need and there may be others, that could be interested.   NE makes more sense for Jacoby than Dallas, as he would have the opportunity to start next year, if he can turns things around.     What you want to trade Jacoby? Would you do it for a 3 and taking his contact off the Colts roster $$ ?     What do you think he’s worth, with competition on the market?       If they did trade him to another club, would you then: a. Make Eason backup and  add Kelly to the practice squad ? b. Add Kelly to the 53, let him and Eason compete for the backup spot? c. Sign a veteran to a one-year deal and make him the backup?    IMO I’d choose “b” unless the Colts really feel strong about keeping Brissett. I like the idea of giving Kelly a shot to at least, compete. If they did trade Brissett, and they want to take a chance to see what they have in Eason,  they should at least bring Kelly back to the practice squad, for insurance.       The Colts may be getting phone calls some time this year about Brissett and if QBs keep going down, Brissett’s value might go up.     To me, it just makes sense that would listen to offers:    You’d be getting draft capital back, a possible reduction in your contract money owed and the opportunity for Eason to get experience or for he and Kelly to compete.   Jacoby would get his opportunity.      
    • Brutal nine game stretch? Vs the 1-6 Texans (x2), the 1-6 Jaguars, vs the 3-3 Raiders, vs the 3-3 Lions? Vs the paper tiger Titans (x2).   The Packers and Steelers could be tough, but not unwinable.   I think our definition of ‘brutal’ could be very different...   It’s a shame we don’t having a purring offence though.
    • Brady appears everywhere, even when he's not wanted. 
    • You can only have confidence in the draft picks that perform. And Ballard has drafted a lot better than Grigson, so I can't complain in this area. His hit rate on production is pretty good. All teams use short term deals. It's part of the business when you  have to fill holes. You ought to give it a shot. Much less politics than expected, and a lot less than other sports.   I think part of the problem though is our lack of blitzing. We're still one of the least blitzing teams, and most of the other sack heavy teams have a significant increase in blitz % compared to us.    Hoping Turay comes back 100%. If not, we need to make a move in the off season for sure. Still think we resign Houston too. I agree we don't have much identity on either side. We really have had balance from game to game either. Our identity to me thus far is conservativeness.
