    In Response to Re: Luck Looks Sensational Again : You didn't notice him locking onto his receivers? I mean it's probably just a rookie thing, but I did notice it. I didn't get a chance to watch the entire game, so I really shouldn't comment about his play, but I did see his highlights. The good news for you guys is that he didn't go out there and completely crap his pants, because most of these sure thing quarterbacks do just that. How many times have these top quarterbacks been complete garbage? At the very least you got a guy that has a decent arm and seems like he likes football...way more than you can say about half of these guys drafted over the last ten years.

    I wasn't paying enough attention to that, but I don't doubt your assessment. 

    And I agree with you (and its the most positive thing) that he had poise amidst, some serious defensive disguises and fronts from the Steelers.  They gave him an education about what to expect from one of the most creative defenses in the game, and he managed well.

    He looks pretty good, but I think the Colts as a team will struggle. They have problems with the O Line and LB corps. As I stated last year, when you finish last in the NFL it is because your team has a multitude of deficiencies. If the Colts really did tank on purpose they should've been penalized worse than losing the #1 overall pick. Teams should not be rewarded for deliberately s--king. Losing on purpose defeats the whole idea of competition. He does lock on to WRs, but expect that to change. I could see a 6-10 or 7-9 record, but I have yet to see the Colts schedule.

    the colts didn't purposefully tank.  No player whose job is on the line would do such a thing.  No coach or gm would either.  You don't get to this level of the profession without professional pride.  The idea that someone would swallow that AND risk his job for the first pick is unfathomable.

    pathetic?  don't you see the similarity of tanking card to the spygate card?
    RESPONSE: No. The tanking is factual...the claims that the Pats' won their titles due to filming in an improper area are BS. 
    LOL - what facts do you have that the colts intentionally tanked?  Please share. 



    Again, am I somehow subject to a different set of standards than the rest of the board?
    RESPONSE: I guess you learned how to whine from Peyton...LOL!! Of course you're subject to a different set of standards. It's a result of you being continually caught in lies. You have no credibility here.
    Asking a question is whining?  Why not just answer the question TP?  Gosh its fun slapping you around again.  Thanks for making my day.

    I just copied this from my other thread.  Funny how Luck looks good, here comes UD6 being a dork again.  Trying to say they DIDN'T TANK?  HA!

    " Funny how people have issues with prostitution, but not with the Clots intentionally tanking to get the top pick.  Same thing, really.  In both cases you are letting someone stick it to you for a reward."

    I know what the Commissioner said, to paraphrase, an effort to subvert rules to promote fair play.  I know that Belichick said he did this going back to his first days in NE.  That provides enough authority regarding the actions to ask the question. 

    On the other hand, you just throw out the tanking thing with wild assumptions and no authoritative evidence to support it.  Its really apples and oranges.  

    I don't care to get into a pis-ing match, but I do fight fire with fire.

    In Response to Re: Luck Looks Sensational Again :      If Luck beats the Pats by passing for 330 yards and 4TDs, why hate the guy for that? What made me dislike Peyton Manning was his propensity to whine and make excuses whenever the Pats beat the Colts. It was also his constant grandstanding at the line of scrimmage on every play, with his numerous gyrations.      I can't hate Eli Manning, even though he's beaten the Pats in those two gut-wrenching SB losses. The guy did his job. Eli doesn't grandstand, or whine and make excuses, whenever he loses...like big brother Peyton.

    What we have here is a failure to communicate. Let me be clear, I hate the Colts. I live in Indiana, and have put up with talk of Peyton Manning's greatness for 13 years. I'm sick of it. First of all, he's not that great because he has a PS record of what? Something like 9-10? And the year they won the SB he was mediocre at best, and they wouldn't have even gotten past Baltimore if Ray Lewis hadn't tipped that should be/would have been INT into a completion. Second, all the Colts fans are hoping to just press the "reset" button and have Peyton Manning II. This is very unlikely, yet they believe it, and after listening to talk about Manning for 13 years, now it's "Andrew Luck" and etc. What you aren't getting is that I have the unique problem of having to listen to this crap day in and day out in the local media, at work--wherever I go. That qualifies me to be able to take the position I'm taking and feel completely comfortable with it. As far as Eli goes, I disliked him before he even threw a pass in the NFL. For one thing, he plays for the Giants, who I have disliked for 25 years, another thing is he's Peyton's brother, and more than that, he's a prima-donna that refused to play for the team that drafted him because mommy and daddy wanted him to play under the big lights in NY. Now he's been "adopted" by all the Colts fans because their own team is lousy, and they somehow think Eli beating TB is some kind of sick justice. Both times he's won he's gotten nothing but lucky. There was the Tyree once in a century catch (with holding that wasn't called), then there was Gronkowski tearing up his ankle, and Welker not catching the pass--among other things--and he wouldn't even have been there if Kyle Williams hadn't made the stupid, bonehead play of all time in Frisco muffing a punt that he had no business being anywhere near to begin with. And yet, as Colts fans tell me, I'm supposed to give Eli his "just dos". Not here. Unless you live around it friend, you just have no idea. I loathe the Colts, I loathe the Giants, and if they went 1-15 it would be one win too many. I don't wish them any ill off the field, but burying them with 20 sacks per game for the rest of their careers when they're on the field would be the ticket. Hopefully my feelings on this are made clear.

    what fire you have given no proof that filming helped the Pats win the SB. You have as much evidence as to such as I do that the Colts tanked the season. So, until you can provide proof that it gave the Pats an advantage or stop using spygate as an argument then I don't have to provide you proof that the Colts didn't tank it.

    Oh yeah you apparently don't know what the commish said because he said it didn't give a competitive advantage

    Well said, but somehow I don't think that will shut him up. Like I've been trying to tell everyone on here, spygate is the favorite topic of ALL Colts fans. You think UD6 is bad, you should live in a state full of them. And now, they like to whip out "Eli" like he actually plays for them--as if the use of his name is a weapon that will act like kryptonite on NE fans. THIS is why I don't like Andrew Luck, and THIS is why I hope he is Ryan Leaf II. FB around here was full of that "Belicheat" crap as soon as the last whistle blew las Feb. "They can't win without cheating" was the mantra. On it's surface that is utterly ridiculous, (how did they get to the SB? By cheating? Then they decided to play it straight in the actual game, and couldn't win?) but none of that matters to Colts fans, they don't care about what the facts actually are.

    Eng - I am not interested in reopening wounds.  I'll simply say that Goodell said the pats did something against the rules in an attempt to gain an advantage.  Belichick said he'd been doing it since day one with the pats.  That means they'd been doing something against the rules since Belichick's first year with the pats to gain an advantage.  Whether or not they did is immaterial although I'd like to think Belichick is smart enough to know that if the process produces nothing then it should be scrapped.  Violating rules in that way taints success. 

    On the other hand, your comments about the colts intentionally tanking are simply opinion.  IMO your opinion is based on some flawed thinking.  You certainly are welcome to continue thinking as you wish, but I'd suggest logic would tell you something else.  That's said, the root of fandom is fanatic and fanatical thinking doesn't always lend itself to logic. 

    again - apples and oranges.

    And let me add too--for clarity's sake--that I have no problem whatsoever with Tony Dungy's Christianity or his proclamation and living out of it. Much of what he says and believes I also believe. I think he seems like a very good person, and I think what happened to his son was horrible. I just hate the Colts as a football team, and therefore, anyone who plays for them I want to see fail on the field. That's just all there is to it. Nothing personal, just business.

    Not with you.  Get lost.  Stay lost.  Anything you say here is unimportant because YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS HERE.  The way you spew "Spygate" at every turn just backs that up.  Go find a Clots/Manning site and bother them.  You are a bad fan, and a bad person.  Be gone.

    What a let down TP.  I was actually thinking you had proof that the colts intentionally tanked.  What you've got is an article from a writer who's known to have an axe to grind against Polian and who prefers to stir the pot from the negative instead of the seeing the positive. 

    Do you know what proof means?

    I'm not sure I would get too excited about a couple meaningless pre-season games.

    The kid might be good; we have no way of knowing at this point.  What we do know is that when he struggled in college it was against speed on defense, and when the games begin to matter he is going to to see nothing but speed and awareness on defense.

    I don't think I could care much less what happens to the Colts, but I predict this kid will throw about a gazillion interceptions this year.

    Depending on one's preconceived feelings, the article may or may not have merit. His examples are opinions. I don't know if brad wells is a colts fan. Based on his articles that I've read he more opinion maker searching for web hits than a fan. Further, it is widely known that he had an axe to grind with polian and used his keyboard to grind it at every opportunity ad nauseum and frequently quite childishly. Given all of the above, his article is not a surprise. Some may agree with him. Some may not. Finally, opinions can't be lies. You frequently confuse opinion and fact. Then again, like the writer you cite, you always come with an agenda.
