What a clown
Not really sure how to go about attacking this article, too many possibilities.
My first question would be why is a writer from Houston writing an article about two QBs that were never Texans or even Oilers like he knows what is going on? He hasn't even been here for a Houston vs Colts game to know what is happening in Indy. Did he just have a layover in the Indy Airport and thought he would trash the city and fans for understanding a very hard and what seems to be very good football decision?
To me this would be like Bob Kravits writing an article about how terrible all people in Houston fans are to be Texans fans and not loyal to the Oilers/Titans after they left.
This is an article on the same website, i think it's this guy's mission to bash the Colts and Andrew Luck whenever he gets the opportunity.
As far as having a "minor league" city without Manning... Indianapolis has the biggest Indy car race of the year, Indy 500, one of the most important NASCAR races, Brickyard, all the Big Ten championships, the NCAA headquarters. Even without Manning, Indianapolis was still on the radar because of Reggie Miller. The city only got bigger with the arrival of Manning and a Super Bowl.
Between Manning's rookie season and final season, the Colts were one of the "winningest" franchises in football, the Pacers were a 60 win team, Indiana Fever won a WNBA title, the Indianapolis Indians (minor league baseball affiliate) won a World Series, the Indianapolis Ice won a title, Butler made two straight NCAA title games. This dude needs to stfu.
This article is embarrassing. What does he expect Colts fans to do? It makes no sense :shrug:
Well hopefully it's more motivation for Luck to beat Houston if he reads it by chance.
Guy can write what he wants, he's entitled to his opinion. Funniest part to me was him calling Luck a game manager.."even more so then Matt Shaub."
I really hope the Colts beat the Titans next week and put the pressure on Houston in Houston. If the Colts could some how win that game and make them really sweat, it'd be great. I see Houston on the road as the Colts only loss in the next four weeks. 11-5 sounds real nice.
I think that article was written to stir up a clean rivalry that is solely competitive.
^I still hate the realignment. It is really to get a good rivalry going when 2 of your 3 division opponents are about as far away as you can get as far as location.
I've been wondering if they eventually move a team to LA if they will look at the alignment again...Your rivalries should be 2-6 hour drives...not 2-6 hour flights.
