@Pikebg40 Won't help to get of Pep. Pagano and Grigson will just find someone similar. If you want another philosophy, you have to get rid off Pagano and Grigso. I would not be against that at all.

FWIW I don't want OL early either. 

I just don't think the OL is as big a difference maker in terms of winning games as one of all the other missing pieces (i.e. WR and pretty much everything on defense).

Pagano has to make a choice between what he knows works and what he believes works.

@mattshedd I was feeling similarly. Though I did want Manning to get a TD at the end.

I don't think I can ever root against Manning, but I can sure root against his team :-)

I started watching football around 2002-2003. And by started to watch football, I literally mean that I hadn't watch a single snap before that time. Football is not part of the sports newsstream over here (it is more so now, but it wasn't 10 years ago). I remember back in the 90s when the boys in my class talked football and I thought they were jerks and why on earth did they stay up so late on Sundays to watch some weird sport and no wonder they sucked in school. Those years is why I still hate the Cowboys, by the way. 

In the 2000's I had moved on, living in a dorm, studying and partying all night and getting up so late on Sundays that I couldn't fall asleep. At some point my remote landed on football. And for a long time that always made me fall asleep. At some point, though, I had watched so much of it that I actually understood the basics (we're talking real basics here, 4 downs to get 10 yards and such) - and it suddenly became so interesting that I didn't fall asleep anymore! Dammit! 

The first season that I remember actually watching games or parts of games was the 2004. How could I not end up as a Colts fan? I don't remember specific games, but I do now that the first game that kept me a wake all night was a Colts game. Don't ask me which one, I don't remember the opponent (obviously, the opponent didn't impress me much), but there were lots of TDs and that got me hooked. I remember being stunned about those long, beautiful passes right on spot.

Even though I don't remember any specific games from the 2005 regular season I do remember the Dungy coming back game and the playoff loss. The combination of that and the 2006 season defines my fanhood, I think. The 2006 season was the first season were I truely followed the Colts, started reading Colts stuff on the internet and hanging around fan sites.

If it hadn't been for those emotional years, I don't know if I would have hung around. But during those years, Peyton Manning style football got me hooked. 

Without those beautiful passes back then, I probably wouldn't be a Colts fan or a football fan at all. That's what Peyton Manning is to me. And I'm grateful.

As I said yesterday, I simply don't know. I don't think any of those mentioned is it for me. It might be a mixture of all of it (except for the growing up part, I was +20 before I watch a snap of football). At this point, though, I think a major part of why I watch football is the connection to the online Colts community.

@steveb19 It doesn't matter if they limit Peyton's possessions if they don't score points on theirs. Unless they steal a possession, Peyton will have just as many possessions.

@mattshedd @gizzardfanny @TrueBlue87 I have decided to wear my Manning jersey in protest on Sunday. The team never gave me a chance to properly retire it.

I'm considering to change to my Luck jersey at half time, but that decision will be open until the final minute.

@TrueBlue87 @mattshedd I disagree. Cutting Manning was not wrong. But the way they handled the 2 months leading up to cutting him was totally disrespectful and very wrong. May even have been worse than this week - but only because it lasted 2-3 months.

I don't know how you can put the Colts above the Tacks based on week 1.

@DougEngland This so much.

It's fine that the "new regime" wants a different philosophy (they should want a different philosophy as the game is constanly changing and so does winning philosphies). I don't agree on all aspects of their new philosophy, but I don't disagree with A different approach in principle.

But why do they have to paint the past so dark? Is the new philosphy not good enough in itself, but has to prove itself by diminishing the past?

Does the "new regime" not aknowledge that most current fans actually came to the team in this damned "old regime"???

Another comment: The two minute drive(s) to end the 1st half were ugly. I choose to see it as an anomaly, but it does cause some concern for me. That and Castonzo's injury.

Other than that it looked good, but much of that might be attributed to playing the Browns.
