For Whom the Bell Tolzien

December 4, 2016

Hope your Thanksgiving before that game was good at least...

 

We drown our sorrows and talk about the Amazin' Pat (2:50), the loophole that helped Baltimore (5:00), a little OSU Michigan and why we don't have better spotting tech (7:00).

Then we talk Colts with our whole season based on the QB (8:00), the help the Texans can give us (11:30), how we've blown 3 games that would have us in the lead (14:00), Luck/PG comparisons (16:45), how we blew chances to score from first and goal twice (19:00), and again our overly optimisitic projections for the last 5 games (22:00)

Rememberberry The TItans

November 22, 2016

Holy Memberberries!  With the 2006 squad in the house it looked like the Peyton-era Colts for a bit. But of course this is the Luck-Grigson-Pagano era so no win can come easy.

We talked at halfime about Adam's first missed kick of the year (1:24), our lack of Crowd Noise with the Luke (3:00), Our worries about giving up the lead (5:24).

Then we meet up on Monday afternoon. We talked BEFORE the news of Luck's concussion broke...

We talk history with Tennessee and Pittsburgh (10:10), the decision to kick on 4th and 1 at the end of the half (12:30), Luck's 2nd half drop-off (14:20), our lack of killer instinct (18:20) Preview the upcoming game against Pittsburgh and sad state of the AFC North & South (24:00)

Make Indy Good Again

November 19, 2016

Bye Bye, Bye Week!

The Colts pulled off what seemed at the time to be an impressive win in Lambeau. But after seeing the Titans destroy the Packers it's hard to get too excited.  

We do a quick recap during and after the Green Bay game and then our thoughts on what this means for the season.

 

With 2 games in 5 days we'll be coming at you fast and furious til the end of the season.

Too Many Chiefs Not Enough Indians

Go Cubs Go!

Yes, this is still a Colts podcast, but allow me to be excited about the Cubs winning for the first time since before my grandfather was born (who's been dead for almost 18 years).

Look kids, Big Ben, Parliament, Can't Block, Can't Tackle, Can't Coach...

Tom and I talk a couple hours after the game to  talk about what went wrong starting with bad DB play (2:55).  Bad penalties (5:45) Why Luck couldn't get that 1 yard on 4th and 1 (9:33)  All of those drops (14:00) How banged up the O-LIne is (16:00) The future of the London Jaguars (18:30). 
We drown into what other coaches might be out there (20:30).  Whether or not we're ready to call this season a total bust (24:50). Can we actually pull through this in the next 4 games? (25:30)  
With football being so glum we get into some baseball talk and my uneasiness about the Cubs (27:00).
