    • As a matter of discussing hypotheticals and possibilities, you have to speculate facts then form opinions to have a discussion.  But the reader has to know what facts we know and what we don't know.  If you came to this forum only allowed to speak to about actual facts as they are, nobody would ever know enough about the Colts to actually have much to say.      What I said was probably in response to somebody else implying my opinion was not valid because I did not support it with a Link.   As a the topic of JT, there are two layers here that folks are blending into one.     There was a period of time when JT said that he wanted to be traded.  At that point I expressed an opinion about what his trade value would be given the fact that he wanted a new contract with any team...and...the other team thinking JT would not return to the Colts.  I said I'd take two 4th rounders, when everybody else said that he was a good enough player to command a 2nd or a 1st.  The 2 4th rounders was not reflective of JT as a talent, but reflective of the stalemate situation where it seemed the Colts would have to sort of dump him because of JTs stubbornness.  Part of that stubbornness was based upon the reports (rumors) that he wanted $18m per year and the wide spread indications that JT was exaggerating an injury to get out of Indy.  If all of that was true, then certain speculative discussions can spiral away from that centerpiece.  During that time, I never expressed an attitude that losing JT would be a great loss.  I didn't cry about not having him on the Colts.   Since I don't know what the poster is referring to when asked why he thinks I "dislike" JT, I can only assume its because of that.   Do you follow so far?   Then out of nowhere, its announced that JT has signed a contract for $14m.  So the idea that JT was being stubborn in not wanting to play for Indy, wanting $18m per year, and exaggerating an injury were pretty much debunked.....Therefore, all speculative discussions that were based upon those negative reports about JTs attitude disappear instantly.  They no longer exist because the basis was never true to begin with.   Now we have a guy who wasn't exaggerating his injury, and was fine with playing for the Colts.  I that case don't have an issue with $14m for JT (negotiating with him trying to get him back to the club when he "had a bad attitude" is different).  And if you ever wanted to research my comments, I never said anything about how many millions of dollars he should be paid.  As a matter of practice, I never do that about any player because my sense of compensation or price with just about anything does not seem to reflect what others might pay for it...and I'm not just talking about football.    As a general rule though I'd say that teams should not get into a bidding war paying top dollar to retain non impact or nonballhandling positions.     
    • Oh, I agree. Although I still get frustrated with several aspects of this team, overall, I'm somewhat pleased that we are 6-5 and trending in the right direction in many ways. My point was I just don't feel very confidant that the playoffs are likely.
    • Eh I’d rather we put the money towards other areas of need. Although if the price is right I’d like to have him, I just don’t think he’ll take what we want to pay.
    • Reminder moss had 150 yards in the first titan game. Colts  smashed them in the mouth.
    • Calm down.   1) In confused, I thought we were supposed to be positive? Or is the world ending. I can’t keep it straight with all of this.   2) And he’ll be that much more prepared for next season with his legs being rested that much longer.   3) Yes if he knows that a few more games balling out will prove it wasn’t a fluke.   4) Teams probably aren’t comfortable paying money to any player after a small sample size.   JT isn’t playing for the near future. Either look at the positives or wallow. I choose to see this as a blessing in disguise.
