Post Ravens and Colts next weekend..

Who do you think Johnny Unitas is pulling for right now? I would hope the Ravens! this should be a great game as it tests one of the best defenses against one of the best offenses. I just hope that manning has on his running shoes because Ray Lewis will be trying to get to him like a mad man, looking foward to this one

I have no doubt that Johnny Unitas is pulling for the Ravens. It is one of the great shames of the NFL that the team that left Baltimore in the middle of the night was able to keep the name.

I bet he is spinning in his grave over the History of the Colts DVD that the NFL is hawking on TV during Colts games, the team in INDY is not the Baltimore Colts.

This weeks game should be a good one, I don't think that the players will feel the same emotion that many of the fans in the stands will feel about the Colts coming back to Baltimore.

Go Colts!! After seeing Bob Sanders out there bouncing around like a pinball and taking LJ out makes me feel like our defense has the momentum to take us far. Jamal Lewis isn't the back he used to be, he's still a monster, but kinda a smaller monster now. Peyton will do his 3 step drop and have his nice little pocket to protect him, Raven D will have a tough time getting to him. McNair is my 2nd favortite QB behind Peyton. Freeney owned Ogden last year when the two teams met. The Ravens are a very very physical team, but I'm going with the Colts on this one. It's will be a great game.

It makes me sick to see those commercials. Whenever it comes on, my wife and I just look at each other and say, "No, that would be the history of the Baltimore Colts." The Indianapolis Colts won't have many highlights worth seeing until Peyton Manning came around.

How Can Baltimore Claim The Ravens?? When Art Modell Pulled A Colts Bustin Town From Cleveland In The Same Manner. The Only Difference Was That The Browns Were Somehow Allowed To Keep The Name.

That is the point, the Ravens are the NFL team that is now in Baltimore. The Browns and the Brown's history stays with the City of Cleveland.

The Indy team should be called something other than the Colts, when the team moved to Baltimore from Dallas they changed the name to Colts (from Texans). The team was named from a contest in the Baltimore Sun.

I think they should of kept the old name, The Indianapolis Texans, has a ring to it don't it?

Anyway, the Colts are cursed to never win the big one with Peyton Manning. He's a great regular season QB but he always, ALWAYS chokes in big games. He threw 3 interceptions in the Chiefs game. The defense can't hold up like they did against the Chiefs and Manning will turn over the ball. I think the Ravens will win by at least 10.

My Broncos played both of these teams, and even though they lost to the Colts and beat the Ravens, Baltimore was the best of the three teams. The Ravens were probably the best team we played all year.

Because the Ravens are Baltimore's team now. Do you see Baltimore putting out a DVD with the "History of the Baltimore Ravens" with highlights of the Browns? No. The Ravens are a 10 year old team. Our history starts there, and nobody here tries to say otherwise.

Am I upset if the Browns use their history prior to the move to Baltimore? No, because that was their team, not ours. The Ravens didn't exist until '95.

The Indianapolis Colts history starts in the middle of the night back in '84 when the team moved to Indianapolis. Johhny Unitas, Art Donovan, Lenny Moore, etc. were all Baltimore Colts, not Indianapolis Colts.

My Panthers handed the Ravens their own asses.
Granted McNair got knocked out with a concussion early.

Thought this was an interesting article in the local paper that goes well with this thread:

Open Letter to Clueless Jim Irsay, Owner of the Baltimore Colts Playing in Indianapolis

From: G. Kane, Disgruntled Former Colts Fan

Dear Clueless Jim:

You still don't get it, do you pal?

I caught the article Sun reporter Rick Maese did on you yesterday. You know, the one where you tried to make nice with Baltimoreans. The one where you said, "and to me, it's all about taking the high road. I don't have one ounce of anything but good feelings for Baltimore."

Save it for those suckers who believe it, Jim. Folks may call us Balti-morons, but there are still plenty of us left who aren't channeling Boo-Boo The Fool, which is what we'd have to be doing if we believed your nonsense. Do you really think we buy your claim that you had "empathy" for us poor Baltimoreans after your father took the team out of town in 1984?

Look, Jimbo, we didn't mind losing the team. Frankly, I was glad to get your dad and his team out of here. I figured that one day, Baltimore would get another National Football League franchise.

But your dad took more than that. He could have left with the team, renamed it for something unique to Indiana or Indianapolis and left the Colts horseshoe logo, colors, history and legacy here in Baltimore where they belonged. He chose not to do that. Why? Because he didn't just want to take the team. He wanted to stick it to Baltimoreans.

You were with your dad, working in the Colts front office, for all that time. Did you once suggest to your dad that maybe, just maybe, he should change the name of the team and return the Colts horseshoe logo and colors to the city of Baltimore? I mean, since you have so much empathy and all.

I don't think you did, Jim. Aren't you the guy who, according to news reports, flies around in a private jet with a Colts horseshoe logo on the tail? And aren't you the guy who couldn't even be happy for us after we did get another franchise, courtesy of Art Modell?

What was it you said at the time, Jimbo? "People can appreciate a businessman trying to improve his situation. But you hate to see instability in the league"?

You said that, didn't you, Jimbo? Kind of forgot your dad started the trend toward "instability in the league" when he crept out of here with our Colts, didn't you, pal?

Rather than accusing Modell of helping the trend toward instability in the league, you and your dad should have been trying to learn some class from the man. When Modell moved his Cleveland Browns to Baltimore, he moved the team only. The name Browns, the team colors, the history, the legacy all stayed where they belonged: with the people of Cleveland.

Maybe that's why Modell was able to do in five seasons in Baltimore what you and your dad weren't able to do in what at the time was 17 seasons in Indianapolis: win a Super Bowl. Some folks here believe the Irsay theft of our colors, logo, history and colors has called down a curse on the Colts franchise.

I don't believe in curses. Nor do I believe you have any idea what things like the history and legacy of a professional football team mean to a town like Baltimore. But I'll try to explain it to you.

I'll use my favorite Baltimore Colts season, the year they didn't win a championship. It was the second game of the 1965 season. With the Colts trailing the Green Bay Packers by three points and driving for a touchdown when Tom Matte fumbled the ball into the arms of a waiting Herb Adderley.

The next 10 games saw the Colts win nine and tie one. The Horseshoe Helmets lost, 13-0, to the streaking Chicago Bears - who were bolstered by two rookies named Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus - at Memorial Stadium. Colts quarterback John Unitas was injured in that game.

The Colts lost the next week to the Packers. Backup quarterback Gary Cuozzo went down in that one. The team's record was 9-3-1 to the Packers 10-2-1, and the Colts needed a miracle to beat the Los Angeles Rams while hoping the then-dreadful San Francisco 49ers beat or tied the Packers in the regular-season finale for both teams.

The impossible happened: The Colts beat the Rams, and the 49ers tied the Packers, setting up a Colts-Packers playoff for the Western Conference championship. Colts halfback Tom Matte had to be pressed into service as a quarterback. Wearing a wristband with plays on it, Matte led the Colts to a 10-10 regulation tie in one of the most exquisite and classic NFL games ever played. For Colts fans, it was a real heartbreaker. The game ended, 13-10, a little over a minute into the second overtime period on a 25-yard field goal that kicker Don Chandler actually missed. The hopes of an entire city were dashed by a bad call.

This game - including Matte's wristband, which is in the NFL Hall of Fame - are part of the Baltimore Colts history and legacy, not the Indianapolis Colts history and legacy. Do you see how it grates on us that the Indianapolis Colts are trying to convince the world that they won Super Bowl V, 16-13, over the Dallas Cowboys, not the team that actually did it - the Baltimore Colts?

No, you probably don't. And that's precisely my point.
