Don't ask me to decide which move I liked better: SS's drop or McAfee's re-signing.

Man, the things Jordan Matthews does really remind me of Eric Decker. I'm certain his number lends to the comparison, but he's that rangy, tall receiver who's quicker and tougher than he looks at first glance. I watched him torch the Gators D, and that's no easy feat (even with how decimated by injuries the Gators were last season).

I'm hoping for a nice big outside WR prospect to fall into our laps second round, personally (or maybe just one that can catch a ball or something wild like that). Then some defense and linemen.

Plus, the Moala Bear is the cuddliest lineman in the league...until he rips the opposing QB's face off (figuratively speaking, of course)!!!

I agree on the sentiments. I can also, however, understand venting one's frustration through deprecation. But it's certainly a shame that Trent has to be piled on by fans of his team no matter how bad the trade might seem right now.

I live in New England now (displaced fan syndrome!), so I'm super nervous about this game. I'd still rather be playing the Pats than the Broncos, but both are tough for entirely different reasons! The good news is (for the NFL) that no matter who wins this game, there's a compelling story line as long as the Broncos take care of business (don't give up a ridiculous late TD in a game that's already sealed up).

My big key to this game is: can we convert for TD instead of FG. We all know that NE is one of the worst Ds at giving up a ton of yards (just look at their defensive ranking!), but despite that, they have an average to above average scoring D. If we're settling for FGs in the RZ, we're going to find ourselves in a hole in this one and I don't expect a repeat of last week's comeback against Belichick.

Not at all! Gives us loser fans something to waste our time on rather than going out and being social!
Sorry to nipick, but it's Kenbrell Thompkins, not Thompson (injury report).
He seems to be something more of a Victor Cruz type receiver, which is who he's most compared to given his speed and draft position as a slot receiver. He's been a third round steal to this point in his career.

Yeah, Luck is built like Roethlisberger and has the playmaking of Rodgers and the intelligence of Peyton. Not a bad combo...
So, new nickname....Luck Skywalker? And you might need a 12to13 styling ;-)But what I really wanted to say about the article is how important it is for Colts fandom to be able to share those kinds of moments with their progenies (as well as for families to have that kind of bonding experience). A lot of people get onto Braves and Colts fans for not being as passionate (numerous?) as some of the older franchises fans. This certainly has a lot to do with a lot of the older generation not growing up with these teams even in their area. I know that neither team is exactly "new," but the Colts moved to Indy around the time I was born and the Braves moved to ATL when my dad was already a teenager. From a generational perspective, they're just now taking root and it's moments like those that will sink the roots in deep. Go Colts!
No need to be upset with any of that given the W! That's what's great about winning. Still a bit pissed at Richardson (not gonna stylize as T-Rich until he does something worthwhile), though. All he's done is fail in any meaningful moments. He had a couple decent games that we were dominating anyway. Hope he gets his head in it eventually...

He had a big part in selling the 4th down conversion fake that Luck kept. Because of our tendency to run T-Rich on short to go downs, everyone bit hard on the dive and left Luck wiiiide open for the keeper. Great play call by Pep to capitalize on his own tendencies.
Already did down below! But it was in response to someone else. Two TD passes he got hooked as he was beating his man to give Smith that extra half second to avoid the sack
I think we run the same offense, but hope the defense gets off to a better start. Neither of their defenses is any better than KC, but they may control the game better with offensive pacing. I doubt the game will play out like this one, though. This was a unique game, to say the least!
Yeah, I noticed that, too. I think the DT nearly falls down because of it haha.
I wasn't referring only to your article. The game announcers kind of brushed right over it themselves. There are events in any game that get overlooked, like the hooks every time Mathis was coming free to give Smith that extra half second. He was a split second late on two TD passes because of the extra hold after beating his man (one was that step up flip pass by Smith).
I'm just glad Luck is such a big dude. He's built like a linebacker himself.
