To be fair, he was already mid suplex when the whistle was blown.


If the ref had swallowed his whistle and choked to death on it on the sidelines it was still a penalty. 
 

And as a trained professional wrestler whoever it was that took it is lucky he didn’t break his damn neck. I’ve never understood why teams don’t teach players to bump like we do. It would save a lot of injuries in a season. There’s a reason wrestlers are able to do that 2 dozen times a night 4 nights a week for 25+ years, even into their senior years. Teach them to protect themselves.

Your Indianapolis Colts (3-2) look to return to winning ways when they face the Cincinnati Bengals (1-3-1) at home this Sunday. They will play this one without TE Mo Alie-Cox (Out), T Chaz Green (Out)

Keeping a player down when a team is running hurry up is unsportsmanlike conduct refs,  you’ve called every tricky tack call you can make against the Colts call the obvious ones on the bengals please.

Ahh Blackmon... fast becoming a gamechanger

Jesus fox’s coverage is awful. Please someone make this stop...

Agreed, the only highlights they showed were from the Bengals. Didn’t show any of those great throws from Rivers and unpack the come back

Harris rocking the #12 officially puts the final nail in Luck’s Colts career?

I think in Ballards mind that nail was there the day he retired.  I’ve said from the way Ballard has talked about luck even if he came back Ballard wouldn’t welcome him.  Irsay may overrule him but I don’t think Ballard wants luck back.

With our history of injuries I’d try anything.

If you watch walker on that play it tells the story before the flag even came out he’s doing the what are you doing thing with his arms.  They knew.

I agree. Ballard was not happy at all.

I know. I isn't really about the Johnson vs Hilton matchup.

 

Just using him as a reference point.

 

Are we in developmental time though, or win now? 

 

I think Johnson gives us better chance in the present.

 

If the season is a wash, get Patmon and Dulin in there.

All teams "develop" their youth during the season. It's not a case where developing guys means you aren't trying to win now. Fountain and Dulin have been open when given snaps (when not clear out or rub decoys), and are both 2 of 3. 

 

Like I said, its simply mixed feelings. Not sure why you have an issue with that. I'm happy Johnson is contributing and playing well. I'm not cheering against him.

 Arms straight out, palms down, and most importantly tuck your chin to your chest. Make sure you land with your feet flat. If you can’t, keep them in the air, you don’t want to smack your heels. Distributes the impact across your shoulders and arms. I’ve never taken a bump and been hurt. May get the wind knocked out on some of the harder or faster ones, but even that is rare. I’ve never understood why they don’t teach players to land like that when the situation arises.

it makes sense too and I'm not even mad at it

 

Same, it's going to be an interesting phase of the league as the last few of the 'old guard' ride off into the sunset. I think we had a core era of the likes of Manning/Manning/Brady/Brees/Rivers and we're transitioning into the next set of franchise guys.

    • I don’t care what formation we run.  I would like to see the Carson Wentz that comes to the line and audibles plays left and right to confuse the defense.  I’m not sure if he changed plays at all during that MVP run year he had with Philly but that’s what I want to see!
    • There was nothing clear about anything you wrote.   That’s why there were so many people here scratching their heads.   And feel free to look at your rant in your response to @CrazyColt.   That’s pure politics and way too much.   Nothing to do with sports or the Colts.   Try not to do that again. I’m not a moderator, but that’s my two cents. 
    • I would not be surprised if we draft his latest project at CB on the 3rd day of the draft.....  Shemar Jean-Charles   "2020: First-team All-American by Walter Camp Football Foundation (first FBS first-team All-American in school history) ... Second-team All-American and the Sun Belt Player of the Year by PFF College … Second-team All-American by Sporting News and third-team All-American via Phil Steele ... Semifinalist for the Bednarik Award (nation’s top defender) and Thorpe Award (nation’s top defensive back) … First-team All-Sun Belt … Led nation as a senior with 16 PBUs and 17 passes defended (with one interception) in 12 games as a senior … Started all 12 games at cornerback and intercepted a pass at Texas State … Recorded 37 tackles, tying a career high of eight against Charlotte and posting six more against Arkansas State … ESPN’s No. 3 breakout player in 2020 (behind BYU QB Zach Wilson and Alabama QB Mac Jones) … According to PFF, had the rare accomplishment of recording a higher forced incompletion rate (34.6%) than catch rate allowed (32.7%) ... Targeted 35 times in single coverage and allowed only five catches while forcing 18 incompletions, according to PFF … Part of a tandem with Shaun Jolly, helped App State have the best CB tandem in college according to PFF College, as the Mountaineers had an FBS-leading 74 passes defended … Part of only FBS team that allowed its opponents to complete less than 50 percent of its passes (47.9 percent) … During regular season, second in the FBS in yards per coverage snap allowed on the outside … PFF College’s national Defensive MVP of the Week after recording a career-high four pass breakups, eight tackles and one forced fumble against Charlotte … Recorded three PBUs at ULM and two apiece against Marshall, Campbell and Louisiana."
    • I sat in endzone couple times.  It's nice when the offense is coming toward you inside the RedZone....but can't say I liked it when the offense is moving away from you on opposite side of field over 100 yards away.   But I did see Andre Rison's TD vs dolphins in Miami. We were in endzone and colts were driving toward us and rison scored a TD that was voted Top 100 TD's ever, I think. And we saw it in  person not too far away from our seats.   I think I seen another top 100 td, but can't remember for sure, lol. I think it was a Ricky Williams run?  Such a long time ago 
    • Pundits as far as my recollection has always referred to the media folks.....wow, a lot of folks in an uproar over nothing!   And I have a job as well......   Something more meaningful to complain about? I was poking fun. But since you brought it up......how about this new Equality Act? What is your stance on biologically born men transitioning to women (sorta) and competing in women's sports programs? Is that meaningful enough for you? Or how about the new Stimulus Bill that gives roughly 9% of it's money (out of 1.9 Trillion) to actual COVID related concerns? Not counting Federal Employees being EXTRA EXTRA stimulated if they have the 'unfortunate circumstance' of having to stay at home with their children whilst the rest of American "civilian" families lose jobs, get furloughed, laid off, quit/fired or whatever form of no longer working you want to call it.....Is that meaningful enough? Never mind......wrong forum....   By the way, I clearly said "Pundits" in both the title and the body of the OP and asked if anyone has heard or seen some other funny ones????? Media - it was clearly stated in the Title and in the body of the OP......
