@Colt_Following @TroyS If I'm in the minority here (which according to comments, I am), I'll certainly acquiesce. I see your point about looping as well.
Also, I don't mean to detract from the high quality of the article. It was really well done. I just can't turn off the web developer in me that is thinking about page weight, UI/UX, and bounce rates.
Keep up the good writing!

Fantastic collection of throws. Great work, and great commentary.
But to the GIF thing... unless there is some reason these aren't just YouTube clips (copyrights, maybe?) please don't do this again. The user experience is, at best confusing ("did it load? why isn't it playing? do i click?") and at worst frustrating. I'm getting 70mbps, above dial up, to be sure, and even some of the later GIFs were about a 10 second wait from when I hovered.
It's probably a neat technology for some applications, but not this one.
@UKColt I appreciate your positivity. That sounds sarcastic, but it's not. I'm just not prepared to say that Luck for Manning was a good deal yet.

@UKColt He made a decision based on what's best for the team in the long term after making years of decisions based on what was best for the team in the short term. They set themselves up for cap hell by betting the farm that the cap would continue to increase and things would be awesome.
The further I get from the situation, the more angry I get at Irsay for letting things come to this starting 5+ years ago. We all recognized what we had in Manning then, every precaution should have been taken to preserve it, and instead they played Russian roulette with the cap, betting that "the perfect storm" wouldn't happen. It did, and the Colts blew their brains out.
I don't care how many times I read the logical breakdown of how this "had to happen" and try to convince myself of that. The further away I get from it, the more bitter I become at Irsay, and the more I rewrite things in my mind, that this didn't have to play out this way, starting 5-10 years ago. I know it's mostly irrational, but I feel jilted. Time is not healing s***.
I wonder how many others feel the same, and how losing will exasperate things.
@DougEngland Me too. I swear he was talking to me.

@naptown_ninja "that kind of talent is its own gameplan"
I think you're giving those players WAY too much credit, to say that if you draft for (in terms of O line and TEs) and call plays for a run heavy offense, they are still going to be an elite passing offense just because they have talent. System is important, especially in the NFL. Talent is assumed at that level.

Nate Dunlevycoltssteve I lol'd. I probably would have gone with "I could argue that on the third Blarnsday of Tween Moon, Rainbows shoot out of my butt, but I'd be wrong", but what you said will do.

JohnRH I don't know, at some point "cheap" just isn't enough. He's taking up a roster spot every year, at least until he hits IR. It just seems like you have to cut ties and begin investing in another player at that position.
AJ_ I can't help but agree. I find myself leaning toward knowns, not unknowns. Like you said, he's a **productive** ass.

It took me back to that winning feeling, and without having to get out the DVD of the AFC Championship game against the Pats, like I've already done twice this year.

jado825 I kinda hope this is the case. I hope this is like the off season news cycle, where we blow things up because we have nothing to talk about. Maybe we're just going insane on this story because... well because our team is horrible and for the first time in over a decade we aren't thinking "playoff run" this time of year.
flores_salicispierrezombie Spend a few minutes in the ESPN AFC South blog comment threads, that should change your outlook on Texans fans. Make sure you don't have any firearms or pointy things within arms reach first though.

pierrezombieflores_salicis I have to agree with this. You think the Texans fans are insufferable now? Wait to see how loud the "NOBODY BELIEVED IN US BUT HOW YA'LL LIKE US NOW?!?!" screams get if they somehow beat someone in the playoffs.
jado825 Over NE, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh? um yes please.
"Baltimore, Pittsburgh, or New England are going to play in the Super Bowl."
Thanks for ruining my February for me, in December. I hadn't thought that far ahead yet.
