5 months, 1 week ago on Monday Morning Moaner: Colts at Jaguars
This is interesting to look at, what could have been. I sort of doubt the Colts would have taken Fleener if they didn't take Luck. Then again, I also don't think Ryan Grigson would have been the GM if the Colts had kept Manning either. And they probably wouldn't have cleaned house on the roster either so guys like Dallas Clark and Saturday probably would have hung around for another shot at a title with 18... They might have made a change at Head Coach still but even that kind of makes you wonder. If you are keeping Manning and trading the rights to Luck, you are going in total WIN NOW mode, so making drastic changes in the organization might not have been the plan.
Before the Colts fell to #1 I was kind of hoping that they would be able to keep Manning and get Wilson in the 3rd or 4th rounds. He was so good in college, his success in the NFL is no surprise to me at all.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on What if...the Colts had traded the #1 pick?
@RobertItoh 7 division championships, 9 playoff appearances in 10 years, 2 super bowl appearances, 1 super bow win. you know how many teams would kill to "come up short" like that?

@DougEngland "There are at least 50 other runningbacks that could give the Colts what Ballard could". Did I read that wrong? because Ballard wasn't the 32nd worst RB in the league, and he was apparently better than the other two guys on the team.... so...?
@RobertItoh yeah, a return to the manning years would be horrible wouldn't it?
@Cleansweep1876 the other option is going all the way with an injury prone bradshaw and a disappointment who can't block his shadow in brown... good luck with that.
@DougEngland if that is true... then why is willis mcgahee getting signed? why doesn't every team have a great rb? why has it taken the colts 8 years to find a franchise rb? people keep saying "rbs grown on trees" but... like... that isn't true. you can find a generic OK runningback lying around... you have to be lucky to get a GOOD one.
@Cleansweep1876 of course not. but... he did...?
@thellamajockey i seem to remember that the crowd was basically told by #18 to stop making noise when they were on offense. they even had giant signs that said "QUIET OFFENSE AT WORK". I don't think people being bored has anything to do with it.
No matter what, nothing gets any darker than 2011. Just putting that out there.
@Payton @unitas19 the Patriots usually have a couple of FBs. they seem to do ok.
9 months ago on What do the Ahmad Bradshaw talks mean for the Colts?
I wonder if this means Clyde Christiansen is out. I can't imagine the guy would want to stick around after getting demoted, then having to fill in for Arians, and then still getting passed over for the OC job (that he had two years ago). Side note, how much do you think that guy hates Curtis Painter?

Who is the Colts MVP this season? Obvious answer: Luck but I could make a case for Reggie... both on the field and off....

A little rough giving harnish the "bust" moniker. He's on the practice squad and was the last pick in the draft. What did you expect?

@DougEngland totally agree. Polian is gone, Phil! You won! Let it go!

someone tell phil b about jerry hughes. he was tearing him up still on the radio yesterday. cut the guy some slack, man!
@bradicus18 @GoHorse88 Ah, ok. I thought it was available IN week 6, but that makes sense. Hope he can make an impact.

Any updates on Josh Chapman? Wasn't he supposed to be able to come back this week?
joe reitz is ok but the fact that losing him opens up a gaping hole in the line tells you how bad our line is. colts should give local guy ryan baker a shot. he's been with the dolphins a few times.
