I can’t believe so many Colts fans are on here cheering for Burrow (a guy in our conference) to go to a 2nd straight Super Bowl and win it all.  You guys are seriously happy to create another Brady to block our path for the next decade?  That’s insanity.
 

The best outcome for the Colts is for the Chiefs to beat the Bengals and Mahomes & Reid to go lay another egg in the Super Bowl & lose.  Hurts is in the NFC. We’ll deal with him in the Super Bowl one day.  I don’t want to have to battle with a ring having Burrow (in only his 3rd year) while also dealing with Mahomes (and to a lesser extent Allen & Lawrence & Jackson). No thanks to that narrative.

Yup, same. Just like there's lines in the sand in all NFL territories, South NJ is basically all Philly fans.

Well I think it’s a LOT far fetched to say “another Brady”…mark my words, there will never be another QB as accomplished as Brady…and I say that with a staunch record of hating the dude.

Some of us are in the Cincy tri state region. Most of my family supports both Cincy and Indy. For those older than 40 the Bengals were all they had in my area.

Some day, I mean Otto Graham obviously the best QB as far as winning all time (10 years a pro and 7 titles and 3 runner ups) so championship every single year, then all these years later we get Brady who comes close but not quite and in the future someone else will pass Brady though not Graham.....

Yeah they definitely don’t like it when you point out their shortcomings! I’ve had my share of back-and-forths with several friends and family members over the years haha

Who’s the best opposing fans you have come across?

I'm not just saying this because of you, but seriously it's Packers fans for me. 

 

Always humble. And always just fans of the game itself. 

 

I've had some good times with Lions fans too.

Little Caesar’s commercials are as garbage as their food. Good gosh why does anyone eat there the cardboard box it comes in probably tastes better and is probably better for you. 

Simple. It's cheap as all get. 

 

Well... It used to be cheap...

Of course he won’t be an exact Brady (he already lost his 1st trip).  But the thing that made Brady the QB he became was winning it all early. After reaching the mountain top in only his 2nd season, the game slowed down for him tremendously. Even if Burrow only becomes Brady “lite”, it’s a problem.
 

The guy came off of the most dominant college season & a championship and hasn’t missed a beat in the league. He doesn’t need anymore confidence boosters. He needs to lose until our guy is ready to take over. We need our guy to be the one to pass Mahomes and reign over the AFC for the next decade. Not the Bengals QB.  I’ve got no love for any of the young AFC QB’s.
 

They are all our rivals and in our way.  Just like I never cheered for Brady & Ben to win it all. I’ll never cheer for Mahomes, Burrow, Allen, Lawrence, Herbert, Jackson or any other young AFC QB’s to win it all until our guy has a few of them under his belt.

Most fans are cool I will say. I've had great times at several stadiums watching our Colts (car and det were cool folks).

 

Hated buffalo and ne fans when I've been there.

Dominos is now my favorite.

Yea I liked dominos by a wide margin but the last year or so it seems every time I order I’m disappointed more often than not. Papa John’s isn’t too bad but Pizza Hut sucks in my book also. I don’t ever do Pizza Hut or little Caesar’s. We have a local pizza company here in Utah called The Pie Pizzeria and they are by far my favorite.

No nothing like that, just dumb and obnoxious...I remember hearing 'McNabb's the best bro' for years... Lol

 

What does that mean (re: McNabb)? 

 

My brother attended Syracuse when McNabb was there. He said McNabb was a very nice guy. He also had good things to say about Keith Bullock.

    • My bad. Wrong prospect. I think I might be reading to many scouting reports and starting to mix information lol.   Keon Coleman went to Michigan St and wasn't spectacular there vs this last season.   Yeah its all opinion. To each their own. I agree that it won't be WR in the first unless Nabers or Odunze fall. BPA even at a position of need will point to a defensive prospect IMO.
    • I like the idea of addressing skill positions in free agency and doubling down on DE/DT if the value is there. Verse and Jenkins being who I like the most. 
    • Ever since that LSU championship team, I kind of have been a fan of the reverse theory - when you have another dominant receiver on your team, it's even more impressive if you manage to stack up such insane production. Chase and Jefferson were amazing together and at the time everybody thought Jefferson is benefiting from Chase, but the reality is... there is only one ball. And if it goes to one player at disproportionately high volume, commanding huge portion of the remaining volume is actually a huge positive. It shows that even if you are not the 1st option on this particular team, you are able to accumulate big numbers and there is possibly some hidden potential to be a no. 1 receiver. Kind of like Jefferson has been able to prove in the league. Kind of like Olave has been able to do, too.    Big production at high level, combined with high level traits is like catnip for me, when we talk about receivers, and the presence of another big time receiver on the team is not really something that will dissuade me from selecting that player. If anything, I feel like there is some unexplored value there. 
    • Walker might be the answer for us in round 2 if we go DE or CB in round 1
    • If he has a good week at the Combine, he'll start getting a lot more top 20 buzz. I agree that he could be the 4th WR this year. As for how much he benefited from playing with Nabers, there's no question that's a boost for him, but it's probably a two way street. And the stat sheet isn't what makes him attractive. I see speed, size, ability to separate, big catch ability, hands, toughness, explosiveness, and a lot of upside as a route runner/technician.    What do you mean by the bolded? He played all three years at LSU, and never played against Michigan State. What's the connection there?   Everyone will have their own ideas and opinions. It's not hard for me to see him as a good option at #15, but it's my opinion that we're not drafting a WR in the first round anyway.
