The admins will deal with bannable offenses, opinions are rarely that.
It is the exact reason why you have an ignore function on this board on top of which no one demands you react or take the content serious.
It's all up to you.
So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.
If you've done 6 impossible things today?
Then why not have Breakfast at Milliways!
His opinion on how good an NFL team might be is as irrelevant as Adam Schefter's opinions.
I like Luck, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't prefer RG3. I know I'm probably alone on that island though.
Texans this year? Want to add that we won't split with the
Titans either? How about that we lose two to Jacksonville and go 0-6 in the South. We will be that bad...........
These "best players" that were jettisoned weren't exactly world beaters last year.
I'd take this upcoming team over last year's team any day of the week. Luck is a major upgrade over Painter/Orlovsky and I'm sure Colts fans can understand the importance of a good QB.
btw: where is the option to ignore posters? i'm not seeing it.

The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
There is no expectation that we will be even decent this year but there is an expectation that in three years we will be much more competitive. Some of the guys cut just haven't been productive for several years-Brackett, Clark, and Bullitt. The one i don't really understand is Addai who could be used as a short yardage receiver in our depleted core. Leaving the RB job to Brown makes me nervous. I'm convinced that if Garcon had resigned Reggie would also be gone. We have no experienced impact player on offense and we will now place our 2 defensive ends in a scheme they have never played before. This is another example of a new coach bringing in a new scheme that doesn't fit existing personnel.
So you do realize there was a *reason* why they cut those players lose, correct? Because they were older.... injury-prone... and expensive. And they were in cap hell.
They had to "trim" the bad contracts. It's called business. I understand from a sentimentality aspect that it's not fun seeing your old pros take leave... but it has to happen. You cannot have every player you ever take on retiring in that uniform.
The Colts are doing exactly what they have to do to fix this situation.
But... they also have new coaches in place, new players via free agency, a new defensive system, and yes, some big-time draft picks. Namely, Andrew Luck.
And there should be expected some rough patches as this team comes together and it may take most of the season. We likely won't hit 10 wins... we likely won't make the playoffs... but just watching the transactions we've made, I would be comfortable believing that we'll have a better season this year than last year.
Either way, the success RG3 has with his team has nothing to do with the Colts. The 'Skins are further ahead in their process (because they've been in a state of rebuilding for about 20 years)... so of course they have more team around RG3. That doesn't make RG3 a better quarterback than Andrew Luck! It makes him a quarterback of a team that is better.
So don't be fooled when RG3 comes out and has a better rookie year than Luck (if it even happens, I wouldn't bet against Luck). Considering the teams around them, RG3 *should* have a better season. If he doesn't, then you got some explainin' to do, lol...

There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.
Why do you people even respond to him?
I dont understand why ppl keep saying RG3 is gonna be out of the pocket all the time. Apparently NO ONE watches football. Luck was out of the pocket last year more than RG3 was on pass plays
08 and Beyond
won't be as good as last years team for a long time? You do realize last years team stunk and went 2-14 right?
I can't imagine you actually believe what you're saying. It would take a monumental collapse to not surpass 2-14 this year, let alone for a "long time".

The team hasn't played yet, i won't judge them as a team, but it's shaping up to be a good force, and that excites me.
Bullitt- chronic shoulder injury resulting in him missing most of the last two seasons.
Brackett- played in ONE GAME last year.
Kelvin Hayden- he was released after the 2010 season. He couldn't stay healthy for THREE seasons after the Colts gave him a nice new contract.
Saturday- 36 years old and on the downside of his career. His play has not been great the past couple of seasons.
Tamme- what has he done outside of a 10 game span in 2010 with Manning throwing to him?
Garcon- yes he is a loss but he was also a sixth round draft pick. He can be replaced.
