The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself. - Friedrich Nietzsche
It's amazing that while we certainly have benefited by the adition of some new worthwhile members over the last 12 months, it just seems we're graced with a larger percentage of henny pennies and trolls.
Doesn't seem right that we've put up with so much frustration over the last few years and now that there's a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, we've gotta put up with relatively moronic threads from relative newbies who haven't paid their FH dues like the majority of us. I'm beginning to think that perhaps FH should have a 12 month membership requirement before granting the privilege of starting threads.
I'm with you and you are one of the few on this board who is wise enough to see that the Colts gamed the league and got away with it. There are many who post on here who are apathetic about it like it didnt affect them when in fact every highlight shown of Luck on espn could & probably should have been for the very team they are crying about today.
As far as the guy we got...He is a project and a risky one at that. He has more experience catching the ball than throwing it and up to right now has not proven he is a legit NFL qb. If he pans out great but if not I hear Hartline throws a tight spiral...

wow, you sound like you're describing "CP10" vs approx 70% of the top 10 scoring Ds he's faced over his career and 75% of those he's faced in '08 including that disgraceful Ravens playoff performance.
I dunno, maybe it's just me but he who can cast the first stone, best not be paying tribute to a QB who really needed to be sat down vs the better defenses in the league.
He went toe to toe with luck for most of that game against the colts.. he out-dueled russell wilson. He did all of that with no weapons. Yeah Tannehill really is a stinker.
Jury still out for me on Tanny. Obviously it wasn't gonna happen over night for him, tbh how many of us even expected him to start a game before pre season started. He's looked good in patches and bad in patches, which is kinda to be expected of a Rookie QB. What's working against him, outside of the lack of talent on the roster, is the fact that we've become accustomed over the last few years of rookies making instant impacts.
Couple of things I worry about is:
How long is this project gonna take, will it dove tail with the rest of the team ? The D with a couple of additions is ready to win now, you've got Dansby, Wake and Starks really in their prime, in 3 to 4 years where will they be ?
Texas A&M this year have been outstanding, obviously new coaching staff and Johnny Football have played a big part, but what's shown up is how good a OL they have and how talented a roster they are but under Tanny last year they looked poor in a weaker conference. There's a lot of factors contributing to it all and probably silly to put much emphasis on it all being Tanny's fault they stunk, because it clearly wasn't. But if despite all his talent, which he has, a red shirted freshman can win a heisman and put up those numbers in the toughest conference in college football why did Tanny look so meh behind the same OL ?
Like I said jury out on him, we should never be judging him anyway this year. Next year there needs to be progress though, no room for a softmore slump, year 3 we should know what we have and lets hope it good because like him or not Tanny is our franchise right now and on his progress we will ride.
nothings change for me off what i said earlier this season after like week 3...long term he's the 2nd best qb to come out of this class...i firmly believe it off what i see...
