My unsolicited thoughts:
1. Vontae has all kinds of potential. By that, I mean he has the potential to play like the all-pro that showed up in his uniform against the Broncos; and he has potential to play like the clueless "getting dominated by a rookie WR" dude that wore number 23 for the Colts against the Rams. Potential is the reason he is looking for a payday. Production should be the reason the Colts pay a dude. Given what we have seen over the last two years, it seems that "Rams" Davis is just part of the player "Vontae Davis" that won't likely just up and disappear. That's a dangerous thing to devote big money to.
2. This whole deal sucks. Dealing a second rounder for any player and only getting two seasons out of him is stupid unless he is absolutely that player that will push an already competitive team over the top (don't even get me started about giving up a first...). When the trade was made, we certainly were not that and had absolutely no legitimate reason to expect we would by the time his contract expired. Not a way to build a successful team. I miss having draft picks.
3. It's nice to be a fan. Sitting on the sidelines. Scoffing at the monkeys running the zoo. Never having to make a career defining decision.

@BDiddy He has said in the past that he will always go to games b/w AFC South teams.

@Payton Believe me, it pained me to do. But, Luck was simply just winging the ball all willy-nilly for most of the game before he decided to just go ahead and win the damn thing.

@paulcareyjr Unless of course, if there is absolutely no way that he doesn't catch the ball and take it in for a TD to win the game as the clock expires.

I can't believe that just happened. We had no business winning that football game. Luck went all Tebow out there, pulling off a win in the last 4 minutes after looking beyond average for most of the game.
Dear God, I hope this is the only time Andrew Luck ever reminds me of Tim Tebow in any way.
I wasn't aware that some asshole hack of a whatever-the-hell-you-want-to-call-that-guy-because-anything-that-would-conjure-the-idea-of-a-professional-is-not-fitting could actually put me in such a horrible mood. How does his feeble brain case even dare try to comprehend what Peyton meant and still means to us? Let alone question it! I still can't even think about the 2006 AFC Championship game without getting excited and even emotional. Since that game, I have gotten married to a wonderful woman, finished two B.A.'s and an M.A., and put on our Nation's Uniform AND I HONESTLY STILL THINK THAT IS THE HAPPIEST I HAVE EVER BEEN. And that is just one of literally hundreds of days in which myself and many of the most important people in my life were privileged enough to be brought together to share the experience of watching the greatness of Peyton Manning develop and excel into a whole new stratosphere.
But, this troll asserts that we just up and developed some sort of selective, ungrateful amnesia? Exactly how long would it be appropriate for me to spend my Sundays crying in the corner wearing nothing by my Manning jersey? Should I carry a cat o' nine tails with which to lash myself every time Andrew Luck makes a play that I enjoyed watching? Pray-tell, oh soulless one, when will it be socially acceptable for me to love again?
When Peyton Manning goes into the Hall (wouldn't it be awesome if he and Marvin got in the same year? sigh, a fella can dream.) I'll be in the crowd in Canton with my brothers and father talking about how Peyton put an insanely flawed Colts team on his back and carried it to the playoffs in 2008. This useless turd will probably be self-publishing his novel about a Houston-based journalist who struggles to comprehend why he is unloved by the world around him.

@jlandz09 @zgs1288 Count me among those who thought 5 was probably our ceiling this year. Sometimes being wrong is awesome.
@MitchIsaacs Oh you're right. I forgot Jacksonville uses inflatable dolls to make their stadium appear full now-a-days.
It looks like the entire stadium tried to beat the traffic. I wonder if they are all sitting in a premature traffic jam now?
@zgs1288 Agreed. He seems to be much more aware of what this team is and is not than he was last time we played the Jags.
@smonroe Haha, I fully acknowledge that Gabbert is the dollar store of NFL QBs. I was actually referring to the prescience of paulcareyjr in calling that Butler would get a pick.
Booooooomm!! Who called Darius Butler earlier? I do believe we have a wizard in our midsts.
@BDiddy errr... first block rather.
@BDiddy Not the first one block Shipley has missed while pulling tonight.
@Colt_Following @zgs1288 I'm not usually a big fan of bringing in high-priced free agents, but I would be pretty stoked to land Mike Wallace. Can you imagine the room Reggie would have to in which to operate if there was always a threat of that kind of speed taking the top off? And you have to think that Wallace would be more than happy to play in Arians' scheme again given how well it suits his skill-set (as opposed to Todd Hailey's new scheme which seems to under-utilize his speed).
Darn it all to heck. I know my brain knows better than to covet high-priced free agents, but the heart wants what it wants. Sigh... a fella can dream.

@smonroe I think you're right. Hughes is actually featured in one of the ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries (The Dotted Line...I just happened to watch it on netflix last weekend) in which his agent is disappointed when his 40 time means he probably only has a chance as a fullback. So, at least coming out of college, it seems Hughes thought of himself primarily as a RB who may have to settle for FB.
Side note: the movie also included one of those really painful to watch 'there is a camera in your house for three days while your name isn't called in the draft' sequences with Hughes. So, having watched that, it's kind of nice to see him on the roster.

@DougEngland I don't know if I would use the word 'good', but I guess there is comfort in continuity.

@TheGreatMisdirect Reggie should be the one to hand Pagano the ball. Dude was simply insane. Unstoppable. Some of the catches he made today would be absolutely unbelievable if he wasn't doing it every week.

Well, just hang that L around the neck of the coaches. Gutless.
... still a lot of time on the clock?
GODDAMMIT DONALD!!!! (With different inflection, of course).
@BDiddy A third round leg.
Who is this Adam Vin-uh-TEE-AIR-EE I keep hearing about?
@smonroe Next time I hear Roger Goodell talk about the 'integrity of the game' I'm just going to make sure to interpret it as 'integrity of our financial position.'
Did anyone check these officials' facebook pages for Jags paraphernalia?
Mathis looking like a bat out of hell on 3rd and 7. You know, just Mathis being Mathis.
Wow, Luck is an athlete.
Have to have a stop here
his feet were down
throw that red flag
And that is our second round pick next year...
are you kidding me?
Gabbert crumpled into a ball of fear before he even let go of the ball.
@smonroe I think I would miss Gabbert too much. It's a lot of fun to watch him "play"
Oh... that's the guy we drafted in the second round.
I'm pretty sure that if Reggie loses one hand in a tragic landscaping accident, he will still be a top notch receiver in this league.
I just kept waiting for the safety to come into the screen and make the tackle... I just kept waiting...
RG3 Just ran a designed qb run play on 3rd and 11. I'm so glad we drafted Luck.
I hate that they just spiked it with 42 seconds
@RobertItoh Including before the snap
hahaha Reggie is so good not even he can stop himself.
@BDiddy Yeah.... two in a row was asking a bit much.
@TheGreatMisdirect I was just thinking the same thing. I have yet to see anything he does well.
As a Hoosier transplanted to Florida, I had hoped my first Colts game would be memorable. Sitting in the stands in Jacksonville, it was pretty obvious by half time that it wasn't going to be the kind of memory I had hoped for. I recall at one point turning to my brother and saying that I had never missed a man as much as I missed Bob Sanders during that game. Of course, the Jags fan behind me gave me hell as he laughed, "What difference would a safety make?" Honestly, I'm still amazed at the difference Bob did make a few weeks later when he returned.
