@Nate Dunlevy @hankster @ctonofzink That was the first time I was actually PO by the new regime's actions. Everything else, I tried to take a wait and see, there must be a parachute out of their bad decision that maybe I didn't see. This one, there's no excuse I could make for it or way that wouldn't screw this team for many years to come. Plus I am so shocked by so many delusional or lacking in football knowledge Colts fans there are out there who thought this was such a great idea. Wow, we got the #3 pick for #24 pick. Uh, you got a guy who was overvalued by at least a round and half if not three rounds, your team didn't give up #24, that was last season, given this schedule, there's a good chance it's in the low teens if not top 10. Luck the proper noun and the noun won't save us this year given how his coaches have clipped his wings and how much better his opponents are.
Even the Browns fans don't seem to get what a wonderful second chance they got. Weird that even now some lament the so called rejection of Peyton when in truth I think that was the smartest move he has ever made to go to Denver and finally get a well rounded team that gives him a chance to win another championship. Big picture people. That mortgage that you put out on your home to buy that car and pay for that lifestyle you can't afford will eventually cause you to lose everything.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Eyes in the Backfield: 49ers
@Nate Dunlevy @Music Man After the 2014-2015 season for the end of the 2013-2014 season? Thanks.
1. Nate, you forgot that Vic Fangio actually was the DC for Colts
1999-2001 and coached at Stanford, as did the OC and some other 49ers coaches.
There's more cross pollination going on with this game than in a field of wild
flowers. I get the Skywalker, Star Wars reference, but would someone mind
telling me about Kentucky? Are they the biggest state for cousin marriages or
2. I second your disgust of giving up a number 1 pick for Trent, not that he
isn't OK, but that is too high of a price to give up the number 1 pick given
the needs on this team as well as their schedule this year. Could someone
please do an in depth analysis of Grigson's decisions and how they impact the
Colts? I think this guy is bad news for this team and Walden is only the
beginning of how he will kill this franchise. Not since the days of Al Davis
& Tannenbaum have I seen someone overvaluing so many players and hocking
his team's future on so many unnecessarily risky bad bets. Many of Grigson's
guys were not worth the draft picks he gave up or the money he spent on
3. As sad as Pagano's illness was, I am glad we got to see what this team's
potential could be under BA, especially Andrew Luck. I fear that under
Pagano and Hamilton, Andrew Luck will regress or be reduced to a Troy
Aikman. Don't get me wrong, the guy is a HOFer, but there's always an
asterisk next to his name saying that his team carried him. Luck has the
talent to be the greatest of all time and many think at least better than
Peyton down the line if he keeps making progress at the pace he was
going. The greatest QBs are judged on their passing game, not handing off
the ball game. They are judged on passing heroics in SBs. Does anyone
know who was the RB for the 49ers when Montana/Young were there or during the
time Brady won the SB or still much today? Or when Brees won his? Even though
Elways had TD during his SB wins (his RB, not touchdowns), it was his own
heroics that got him his legendary status, not a passive role as ball boy while
dinking and dunking his way to the end zone as others make the
touchdowns. Don't get me wrong, I don't think BA's style is good long
term either, but at least it allowed Luck to grow and improve. Broncos have it
right in terms of giving Peyton weapons on defense, great protection (even his
back up offensive line is much better than ours) and offensive weapons that
will help him play to his strenghts as well as be the star and that is why
Peyton is doing so well. I wish that kind of system and support for Luck and I
fear he will never even come close to his potential under Colt's current
philosophy and its leaders' lack of football acument.
