The #1 Colts podcast I listen to when I’m working great content and addresses every part of the franchise!!
Venturi in so tiring
I’ll preface this review by saying that I realize that it’s got to be very difficult trying to articulate a highly complex game to a mass audience in ways that are both understandable but also educational. That said, I feel like if I keep my mouth shut, nothing will change. Listening to Rick Venturi is just painful. It honestly feels like the Jeff Saturday hire of announcing. My hunch says that Irsay somehow loves this guy because he loves all weird old things. Therefore, the guy now does all of the announcing as opposed to some relevant, astute, up-and-coming announcer. He’s not even able to play the ex-coach card, because everyone knows he was one of the worst head coaches in the history of professional and collegiate football, given his record. It’s numbing listening to him say the same thing week after week about setting the edge, stopping the run, and some of the other 1970s philosophical points with football schematics that’s just not even relevant in today’s game. I just don’t listen to the guy, I’ve lost all interest in the Colts media given the fact that he’s on every other show and on game days. It’s unfortunate because I think there’s a lot of talent in the Colts organization from the broadcasting perspective and I just wish I could hear more of that, and less of Mr. set the edge.
It’s hard to believe how much of a difference one QB who was considered bad and made a scapegoat made this team and offense so much better, reliable and professional.
Unreal how far offensive efficiency fell. Off the map collapse. Wentz, JT and MPJ set a tremendous offensive ceiling for the Colts. Funny how nobody got a chance to take a little time to really value that tremendous offense.
What’s even worse is they never got a chance to build off that success.
