OlBlu is a clever troll. He knows he's a troll, and the mods know he's a troll. But he balances the line between irritating and openly antogonizing well enough to not warrant a ban.
Well, there you have it --- OlBlu read a buncha articles on the 'net that said we're gonna suck, so we may as well accept it. In fact, the Colts should just not play any games this year; why bother? We'll just lose. The experts said so.

There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.
I actually had the chance to go to the open house. It's only been a couple of days for Luck but you can tell already thank goodness for Reggie and Austin this year cause its going to be a lot more fun than this doom and gloom stuff. And for those worried about all those season tickets not being sold.... only the crappiest of the crappy seats were left when I left at 4pm. Really nice turnout for a non Manning led team.
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
You always have numerous experts but never actual quotes or links. I don't have to look up something to verify what you say. That's your job.
Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
"A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player. Losing yourself in the group, for the good of the group, thatís teamwork."
Hahaha, the troll is digging its own grave. It is a fun sight to behold. No one likes you old man. Go walk your dog for five miles and earn that $250k a year while driving around the country in an RV. What a crock.
The Colts will surprise a lot of people in 2012.
How can anyone not think this dude is a troll? He doesn't have 'strong' opinions, he always, ALWAYS has the unpopular one. That's not a coincidence. Then he never 'name calls', but he blatantly throws out thinly veiled insults to draw in name calling towards him. Again, not a coincidence.
I can't wait until I'm retired and I have nothing better to do but to try to annoy everyone I can reach on the internet. It'll be awesome.
This is from a thread I started. I posted the entire article with references:
NFL.com on the Colts Draft
Picks: QB Andrew Luck, TE Coby Fleener, TE Dwayne Allen, WR T.Y. Hilton, DT Josh Chapman, RB Vick Ballard, WR LaVon Brazill, G Justin Anderson, LB Tim Fugger, QB Chandler Harnish.
Analysis: The Colts took the safer of the two quarterbacks at the top of the draft in Luck, getting a guy who has more understanding of the pro game. That said, it's a fair bet that Griffin will be the better player over the length of their respective careers. Luck will probably never be a bad player and will likely be a 10-year starter in the league. Fleener and Allen were strong picks in the second and third rounds, particularly in a year when top tight ends weren't that available (there were only 14 tight ends at the NFL scouting combine in February). Hilton is a great speed guy, but he's really skinny and could get hammered by average cornerbacks until he learns how to get away from press coverage.
I think this review of Luck reflects my own view that has been hammered here. I don't think Luck will be a star in the NFL but may be a serviceable QB in the Kerry Collins mode. I do think Griffin will be the better player over the length of their career....
Here is another citing the source:
I don't expect any of the folks wearing rose colored glasses to believe me, but....
Former Baltimore coach Brian Billick says Andrew Luck "will struggle like Peyton Manning and Troy Aikman did in their rookie years. Aikman and Manning had a combined record of 3-24 as rookies. Both of them were on drafted to better teams than the one Luck is going to."
I posted this not to pick on Luck but to point out that there were experts who do not believe these Colts are anything close to the Colts Peyton joined that two hall of famers already on the offense.......
