What ever happened to Brad Wells. He was an interesting fella.

 

Interesting is one word for it...I could think of a bunch more but they'd all be censored.

I'll listen to Bowens podcast. I'm not sure I'd say I'm a fan, but I don't roll my eyes at the whole thing. Some of our media guys... they're not my kinda guys- at all.

By the look of the answers, I'm going to assume there are no pretty female Colts press people.

Caroline Cann was a pretty one before leaving for the Panthers.

Kevin Bowen. I love that he is also a fan. He always gives a different perspective then just the regular media guy who is just covering the colts and isn’t a fan.

Larra Overton is great and beautiful.

He quit posting when covid hit. He said I have no time anymore for football when he was worrying about covid. Lol. That was his last tweet.

As the Fox 59 sports analyst, is she considered a "Colts press person"?

Bowen is the best in my book.  He has access to the team and is not a fanboy.  Colts fan, for sure, but not an apologist.

Yeah not a press person. She actually is a colts employee. She is a fan so it’s always fun to see her excitement.

For me, Bowen and Holder are the two best, and interestingly, both are at their best when being interviewed.  I believe both have a weekly segment being interviewed by JMV, and that's when they seem to shine.

I'm surprised nobody said Mike Chappell.

I like chap but that dude needs to upgrade his internet service.  Every time I hear him he cuts out.  Even on his manning hall of fame argument to the voters.

Haha...agreed.

 

I listen to a lot of Colts podcasts and I do notice my self eye-rolling a lot.

I like Chappy, but I can’t listen because I can’t stand his voice. Sounds like he’s always eating something. Maybe it’s the service.

 Laura “rambles” too much for me. Especially during games where she talks over a play.

 Kevin Bowen is my favorite.

Kevin Bowen is the best IMO. Written and his podcast “Kevin’s Corner”.

 

But he actually isn’t a Colts fan like someone wrote. He is a Notre Dame fan though.

 

Obviously he has an extensive knowledge about the Colts partly due to him being from Indiana and growing up with the Colts.

 

But he has explicitly mentioned that he “isn’t a Colts fan”.

 

I enjoy Keefer’s and Holden’s written content too.

Bowen and Holder are my favorite as well. Honestly feel like most of the time the other guys are piggybacking off these two. I don't mind Chappell as well.

PAT MCAFEE!

It took me 3 different attempts to get used to the show and the way they interact with each other before I fell in love (it takes a bit of getting used to imo). I listen everyday now.

 

I love the stories when Pat, AJ and DB get talking about how it really works inside a locker room and on an NFL team. Not many shows around with that type of info.

Kevin Bowen for every day commentary on the Colts. Zach Hicks for more serious film study and Xs and Os(BTW he just got a gig covering the Colts for SI, well deserved). Joel Erickson for Colts news. And this might be a bit controversial but... I like Dan Dakich interviewing Ballard and players. I absolutely hate most of his commentary and opinions, but he probably does the best job interviewing the Colts executives and players.

I like them all except Holder. He kind of just goes the company line from an outside media perspective. Just goes along with whatever the front office says and really doesn’t like to make any fair criticism against the team.

 

Case and point, that game (cant remember which one) where JT had a couple of great runs early on, and then they inexplicably stopped running the ball. He was on Twitter almost instantly trying to make excuses when literally everyone saw the same thing.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
