Tarik Glenn is bothered by not being in the Colts’ Ring of Honor

Tarik Glenn played his entire 10-year NFL career with the Colts, getting drafted in the first round in 1997 and retiring after winning the Super Bowl following the 2006 season. He was a three-time Pro Bowler and the left tackle responsible for protecting Peyton Manning’s blind side. Some would say that warrants inclusion in the Colts’ Ring of Honor.

But Glenn isn’t in the Ring of Honor, and that bothers him.

It bothers me, I’m not gonna lie,” Glenn told Zak Keefer of TheAthletic.com. “I don’t really get it. If it was up to the guys I played with, they know the value I brought.”

Six of Glenn’s teammates — Marshall Faulk, Jeff Saturday, Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis — are in the Ring of Honor, as are the Colts’ coach for most of Glenn’s career, Tony Dungy, and General Manager Bill Polian. Glenn would like to join them, but so far the Colts haven’t called.

  1. I’m surprised he already isn’t a member of the Ring of Honor.
    Glenn deserves to be a part of that.

  2. The big guys get no love at all. Don’t all of these so called “smart” gm’s and coaches realize how important the lines are? You can win with a crappy qb if you got a good oline

  3. I think it should be Glenn over Faulk. Yes I get Faulk is a HOF but he spent 7yrs in STL and only 5 in Indy, had 4 1k seasons in Indy but didn’t win anything and had a more notable career for the Rams…To me he’s a STL’s HOFer.
    If Faulk moved to STL and tore his knee up that season and never played again would he be in the Colts ring of honour? I don’t think so.. So why are you putting him up there for the accolades he achieved with another team you traded him too? lol.
    Which begs the other question, why him over Edge?

  4. 3x Pro Bowler who played his entire career there, was part of the Super Bowl team and has been retired since 2007. Hard to explain why he hasn’t been in the ring of honor for years already.

    Lol NO. Just no. Yes an oline is important but to say you can win with a crappy qb if you have a good oline is a completely inaccurate statement your trying to use to prop up your affinity towards the big men.

  6. Perhaps it’s because Irsay was in a drug stupor the whole time Glenn played there and doesn’t remember him?

  7. I can’t say either way but I can say that all the players mentioned were All Pro. Glenn was not All Pro.

  8. can win with a crappy qb if you got a good oline

    So much wrong here. 1st off it begs no questions because Edgerrin James is in the colts ring of honor already, it’s not a 1 or the other. 2nd in Faulks 5 years in Indy he had over 5k yards and almost 300 receptions

  9. 3 pro bowls don’t get you into any ring of honor. You need some All-Pro’s bro

  10. Yep, Tarik was a rock and an anchor for the Colts….Saturday was named to five Super Bowls and Tarik made 3. Jeff was All Pro, and Tarik didn’t make All Pro. They both won Super Bowl together. He will get his chance, but 2020 wasn’t the greatest year for Ring of Honor nominations or presentations. Be patient Big Guy and hopefully it is coming soon!

  11. Colts ring of honor only exists as a popularity contest to remember that decade period when the team was relevant and people only go into it when ticket sales are down and they need a name from that period to show up at half time to get people to go to a game. A barely half full stadium got to see Peyton Manning put in it and this was pre pandemic (would have been at least one more but the then Vice President remembered he was offended by football right before kickoff and left).

    So while he’s correct he should be in the teams ring of honor unfortunately the team he played for only uses it as a publicity stunt so that’s not happening.
