New Player's Numbers


Recommended Posts

I think Luck should take #13. D Has there been a decent #13 since Marino? I can't think of one. And if Irsay were to give Luck #18, I would lose all respect for him.

**just to clarify, I think there's less than a 0 percent chance that Irsay would let Luck take #18. :)

I think Luck should wear #7. A horseshoe, Luck, and #7....... all that's missing is a four leaf clover!

He'll get a tattoo of a rabbit's foot and he'll keep a 4 leaf clover in his locker. In the words of Eli and Peyton, he isn't superstitious....but he's a little-stitious

Hurt Warner was decent.

I also think there's less than a 0 percent chance that Luck will ask for #18.

Irsay has already said no Colts player will ever wear 18 again.

I agree

Irsay has already said no Colts player will ever wear 18 again.

I realize this...I was just responding to the idea that Irsay might go back on that and give Luck #18. :)

Yeah that's true, I forgot about Warner wearing #13.  Hasn't been a good #14 or #16 in a while either that I can think of.

The last great 14 I remember is FoutsThe last great 16 I remember is Montana

How much willie cost Donnie Avery to get #17 from Austin Collie? Does he want the number or does he just want to change the domain name on his website?

When Eli was drafted by the Giants he bought #10 off of Punter Jeff Feagles but not for cash. He paid for an all expenses paid trip to Florida for his family. Then when Plaxico came in, he wanted Feagles new number of 17 and bought that off of him for an outdoor kitchen. (now that I am doing research to get my facts straight it seems the Plax never held up his end of the bargain)

A funny buying a # story:

Mitch’s wife had all this jewelry with 28 on it, so I gave my number to him for two cases of beer. Mitch got divorced , and now he wears No. 99. The two cases of beer are gone. It’s a sad story.John Kruk, on giving his number to Mitch Williams

    • Ok that's a good point man. I'm curious about your opinion on this one. What if you had a guy like Okereke doing James Farrior like things? You've got a good FS. I see both sides of this argument. It's an interesting conundrum. Solid push every single down with a little trickery. Also if you have a solid running game it makes play calling so much easier and whoever you put in there is going to have an easier job. Just theorizing man.
    • 12 sacks and avg vs the pass? Yeah hed be a tweener with us from what i saw he plays inside and outside.
    • I think Flus simply needs to blitz more to be honest. Between the lack of blitzing and stunting, and our soft zone, I just can't envision our pass rush getting a lot better even with an upgrade at DE. Not blitzing/stunting let's the OL settle in, and makes their jobs much easier. And playing soft zone allows easy pass after easy pass, and almost makes it impossible for coverage sacks. Just not sure why we stay so conservative.    On RO, I'd have to look at those last 4-5 opponents last year. If he played at a high level all year that's one thing, but he played mediocre for 4.5-4.75 years, and looks fantastic only in the last 4-5 games? The situation just needs more context and digging.    
    • 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.
