"The Colts should have run here on 3rd and 1, but I digress." I've been saying this to anyone who will listen, and those who are completely not listening, for two days. For some reason, that was the most frustrating part of the game.

Why did BA get the unsportsmanlike call? I didn't catch that.

 @pierrezombie I know I was rooting for a different team last year. It was the first time in a decade I've gone a whole season without running into another Colts fan at a bar.

 @DougEngland That's funny that I put the wrong Star writer in. Thanks for pointing it out. I'm really not as "Kravitz is the Devil" as everyone else seems to be. He's a super inconsistent writer. Sometimes he hits a home run, but strikes out a lot on the way. He seems to have national aspirations of some kind and will spout out whatever will get him attention. With that said, the Star is my last stop for Colts news usually. Maybe this is because I don't live in the area and so I'm not looking there to begin with. Chap is a more humble and consistent writer.

This article, as well as Kravitz article about Peyton's professionalism in dealing with disappointment, are both great reads.

Colts Authority is a great fan blog and will continue to be my go to spot for news and opinions I can't get from national sports media...But, I can't wait to get to the light on the other side of the Drama Queen Tunnel that most of the Colts bloggers are operating in. Maybe this isn't so much about this article as others. While I did enjoy following all of these Colts electric careers (even Painter for a few weeks in 2011 was actually in the top 5 QBs in passer rating), they all looked pretty sad in the our darkest hour (the 2011-12 season). Clark dropping lobbed passes and Addai being shown up by Brown and Carter when not sidelined by injury. Although Bullitt had shown sparks in 2010, he was not good in 2011 before going down. Brackett could be the exception, but Angerer showed that there is a better and younger option at this point. It's true that their veteran experience could help younger players in a time of transition, but these players deserve to be tactical pieces for teams with shots at a championship. That is ultimately what proven veterans deserve in the NFL. I know that wasn't the rationale for cutting them. As for Manning, the "circumstance" argument was ultimately correct. You can blame a lot of people for that move, but it is ultimately the sum of all those situations. Why can't we blame the players getting cut? If they had won one more game, we may not be letting Manning go for Luck. If they had one two more, would Caldwell and Polian have been fired? Or switch it around. If Caldwell had done a better job of adapting and Polian made better personnel adjustments, would these Colts still be Colts? This can go on and on. 

Ultimately, we've all been rightfully pissed off, yet hopeful, for months and we've been made it known. There is now way any Colts fan will lose their love of Manning and we'll be two team fans for the net 3-5 years; however, now is probably the time for a collective healing. A time to start discussing the future and turn the tired frustration into hope and support. If you don't want to do that right now, it's fine. If you want to hate Irsay and become a Bears fan then great. When you have found peace with everything, you'll be welcomed right back in. We'll save your seat for you.

 

Again, Colts Authority is an awesome blog and please don't give up or get too discouraged by the (incredibly) rough waters the ship is sailing through right now. Things could be a lot worse. At least we're not Cleveland fans.
