He is the one guy left who you look at and say 'he should have been put in 30 years ago'.

 

Any idea why? Are there severe off field issues with him?

 

Hopefully he will get in soon as a Senior Nominee.

Mike Curtis needs to go in before him

#32 is one of my favorite Colts but he is dead and I would have loved to see him on the stage just to hear what he would have to say. He was no fan of Unitas, to put it mildly.

I didn’t know that he didn’t like Unitas.  I wasn’t a fan until 1990 but I did read about Baltimore a bit.  Can you give details?

I saw a show a while back and in it he said he thought Unitas was an ego maniac and wanted to lay him out. He really disliked him.

They got along fine.    Mike was intense in practice and they had a few dust up, But Johnny and his wife were God parents to Mike's son

The very idea that YOU of all posters should tell anyone that “they are wrong again” brings irony to a whole new level….

 

Goodness gracious….       :facepalm:

The truth is the truth and like always my posts are backed by facts something yours avoid.

Sorry, but you are wrong again

Did you even read your own article?   Mike got mad at him at a practice in Mike's rookie season.   .

 

Here is a better article for you

 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/bal-sp.nflreact12sep12-story.html%3foutputType=amp

 

"Former Colts linebacker Mike Curtis knew Unitas on a different level. Unitas' wife, Sandra, is godmother to Curtis' oldest son, Clay, 28, who lives in Tampa, Fla. It was Clay who called Curtis yesterday to tell him of the quarterback's death."

 "He's got some warts on him"  is what Curtis was quoted in your attachment but no one is going to express their ill will toward someone after their death. In the video interview in his after-football work office he stated right into the camera his "dislike" for Unitas. Proof enough for me. Don't forget his hatred for all QBs so Unitas fit the profile. I'll stick with the documentary on Curtis I saw. I recall his sly smile when he mentioned Unitas as if he was saying Unitas is lucky Curtis chose not to squash him.

Can I get  link to that documentary?     Also,   why would they be  godparents to Mike's son if he hated him?

Could be it was the wife's idea or it was before Curtis decided Unitas got back on his bad side. All I can say is Curtis made the remark long after his playing days ended. The documentary was on TV

    • id agree with you if this same type of punishment was also coming for Snyder and Kraft, but me and you both know it’s not.  So the nfl doing this, it comes off more as hypocritical than correcting a mistake.     i agree, you are ABSOLUTELY right about Watson, by why doesn’t the nfl have the same focus on their owners?  I get it, they’re his bosses, but does that exclude sexual assault and other stuff these owners have been accused of?  I mean an owner just got caught tampering, trying to illegally gain an advantage, and also the nfl admitted that he mentioned paying his own coach to lose.  What was his punishment, couple of months, 1 million dollars, and a draft pick.  But Calvin Ridley gets suspended for an entire year for gambling $1500?  Wow
    • I'd be shocked if we kept three QBs on the 53
    • On any given team, the 3rd and 4th string guys are fighting for table scraps.      But this year on the Colts, it should be even harder to take care of our 3/4.    Because both our 1st and 2nd string are new to the team and the playbook.   So both Ryan and Foles need every rep they can get.   They won’t be giving up any of theirs.      So Ehlinger and Coan are going to have to make the best of a difficult situation.   It may not be fair, but in carefully scripted practices there's only so much to go around. 
    • I agree losing Hill is a huge loss. I do think they take a tiny step back, but they could also take a step forward.    Not a bad pass catching group at all...    RB - CEH is a good catching RB, not that he needs it though TE - Kelce - don't need to say anything here   WR - MVS - solid and quality X JuJu - likely does better with Mahomes over Big Ben...  Hardman - productive guy, and should take a step forward now that he's no longer in Hill's shadow Moore - rook, but I like his chances.   A lot of teams would like to have that group
    • Using unit totals of  RB - 60 TE - 55 WR - 135   Keeping things simple, and only including the top 4 TEs on the depth chart.   Note, most of the depth chart chatter has Ogletree over Woods at this point, and climbing..... citing Ogletree's hands and route running as being more advanced.    I'd also add that there's a good chance that Granson is again used in more of a TE/HB/slot hybrid role, than traditional TE. That doesn't guarantee anything though. We've heard reports of shovels in camp (Hybrid use) but also heard reports of corner routes.
