Where is Curtis, Smith, Berry, Gino..............? That's only Baltimore days.

How's about Donaldson(sp?), Stark and Bickett???? From the 80's.

He said "your colts", and those were his.

Based on the list he must be a relatively new fan.

I'm guessing if your fandom goes back further, your input is still welcome.

And I am not a relativly new fan....u think some of these new fans know who the heck im talking about with names like duane bickett,ray donaldson,mikr prior etc....ive had to endure the 91 1-15season,trading for fredd young,trading andre rison&chris hinton,shane curry's murder,letting goose,ray,and ambrose leave,drafting sean dawkins,not resigning marchibroda ovet hiring lindy Infante.and those are just off the top of my head..if we were comparing all our war wounds here I belive i ve been thru some bad times with this team...long before they were the model of success they have become

Edge and Bob at their prime were my favorite Offensive and Defensive players, runner-ups being: Offence = 2 Marv, 3 Marshall. Defense = 2 Freeney, 3 Mathis. (I can't help that my favorite positions in football are DE and Safety. ;D )

I find the lack of Raymond Berry in this thread to be quite disturbing...

Too true.

Personally, I refuse to acknowledge Baltimore Colts until the city of Baltimore recognizes the Indianapolis Colts. To that end I say, there were no Baltimore Colts, only Baltimore players.

Well that is certainly Revisionist's History and both of your rights to feel the way you do...but since I had starting watching The Colts in the early 70's they did exist :coltshelmet:

I watched Colts games in the 70's as well.

It has been over a quarter of a century now and even the Ravens organization feeds the fury, despite the obvious hypocrisy being that they themselves ripped the city of Cleavland of their beloved Browns. Yet we are referred to as "visitors" on their scoreboard.

Being that as it is, I refuse to acknowledge NFL greats such as Unitas and Berry as our alumni. They are Baltimore players and the city of Baltimore can do with them as they wish. The horseshoe has been cast in the toilet by the fanbase, the city and the once Cleavland, now Baltimore, organization. Take my horseshoe out of the toilet and I will acknowledge that the Colts history didn't begin in 1984.

Well you are certainly allowed your opinion but when The Colts left Baltimore for Indy they took the team records, lore, players, logo and uniforms with them...you can't change that. They are one in the history of the NFL and last time I looked that means more than what Baltimore Maryland thinks :sun:

Baltimore had The Browns move to their city and Cleveland kept the team name, logo, uniforms, records and lore with them...hence making a fresh start with a new name and identity. The two are vastly differant and I do agree that is is very hypocritical of Baltimore and it's fan base to be upset with the Colts when they pretty much did the same thing to Cleveland.

Please note that I mean not to slight the NFL greats such as Unitas. I can be mighty stubborn and its my little way of thumbing my nose back at the city of Baltimore for their hypocritical and petty grievances.

That being said, it has always been my opinion that when an NFL franchise picks up and moves, they should leave the respective logos and team names behind as the city in which they resided had taken ownership of them. But then again, does anybody really think that Baltimore would be any less petty if we had granted them the aforementioned logo and name?

I respect "stubborness" and "thumbing your nose" at hypocricy 8)

Eh, don't sink to their immature level. We're better than that. Nothing against people from Baltimore, but when it comes to this, we who have refused to accept that line of nonsense have proven to be a great deal more mentally capable and stable than those who view this organization in that light.

I know my opinion isn't popular with NFL purists, however I feel it is best not to pretend in any way that Indy's NFL franchise can lay claim to two Lombardi's. They (Baltimore) can contrive to pretend that Art Modell had something to do with the great Colts teams of the pre-Indy era.

In many ways, I pay homage to Baltimore by allowing them to retain possession of a Lombardi. It's theirs, they can have it. As they have been incapable of winning another. I imagine that this should bring them some solace.

Stooping to their level is not what I wish to accomplish. Rather, I am meeting them half way and conceding a trophy, the greatest prize of the NFL, back to them. Along with the hallowed greats such as Unitas and Berry, their respective records and all that occurred pre-1984. It's a divisive theology I engage in and considering the bitter vitriol spat out by their fanbase, I feel it is entirely appropriate to do so.

You are so overly welcome, you wouldn't believe it.

I wasn't trying to talk down to you. It just seemed that people started correcting the OPs list, when it was just his favorites, not his list of the best ever. But, hey, I'm not the thought police, so point taken.

My input? I don't have time right now (maybe later) to cover every position, but will list a few favorites off the top of my head.

QB: Unitas

RB: Matte, or Lydell Mitchell, can't make up my mind. RB is my favorite position, and I can list quite a few of my favorites.

WR: Harrison

TE: Mackey

OT: Parker

DE: Bubba & Dwight

DT: Goose & Marchetti

LB: Curtis, Herrod, Bickett

K: Vinnie

No problems, I just seemed to be singled out when I was clearly not the only one who probably should have realized that the OP was giving his opinion based on his time as a Colt fan. It was wrong and I apologize to the OP for that.

Btw, I like your list and Lydell Mitchell was my second favorite player growing up...Bert Jones was my fave. :coltshorse:

Does that offend you that the Baltimore Colts are involved? I was born in 1979 so all I know is Indianapolis Colts.

If you're talking about Baltimore (the city) winning a Super Bowl [and not the Baltimore Colts]... the 2000 Ravens won the Super Bowl.

My brother-in-law (being from Ohio) is a Browns fan, and according to him most of the Dog Pound Nation (himself included) feel robbed to this day by Baltimore; not just for taking their team (leaving the franchise behind) but for winning a Super Bowl five seasons after moving.

I'm not sure if I agree with your opinion of 'disowning' what the Colts players did in Baltimore, but I definitely respect it.
