Powers is severly overrated by many of fellow Colts fans in my opinion, he is a nickel Corner at best, he just has very little awarenss and very sporadic play making ability, he is half decent (will make an occasional play but way to few and far between) but easily replaceable

The whole secondary is having an off day.

Powers is having a meh day today, but he's had some very good games this year. Look at his game against Green Bay.

This. He showed a lot of promise as a rookie and looked good his second year... Since then, it has been largely forgettable.

I've said he's a nickel back as well, but it's hard to keep with that feeling when you see him getting burnt by slot players like Bess and Hartline. I guess I still think he can play the nickel, but watching todays game gave me doubts about that.

Powers has struggled the last few weeks but he has shown that he can be a viable #2 corner before that. He's having a bad stretch, but it happens. Heck Sean Smith is supposed to be a lock down corner and Luck picked on him all day today. Cornerback is probably the hardest position to appease fans. Every mistake is amplified, and to casual fans, the main measuring stick for good corner play is interceptions.

Not saying Powers played good or anything (he didn't) but people saying he absolutely can't work here are overreacting, IMO

Powers went out injured. Darius Butler looked very good taking his place.

Powers only plays 10 games each season, right? So we'll need someone to replace him soon anyway.

I can't speak for anyone else but I don't measure powers success in terms of int's rather defending the pass. This year, he has done either of the tasks well at all. I actually can relate his play to one our smurfs we used to have here and he played well in our system. He moved on to get a big contract as a man to man corner in new Orleans and us ked bigtime. Jason David ring a bell? Powers usually tackles very well and isn't afraid to help in the run defense but he does not fit in this scheme or at the very least, he is slooow at picking it up. A better pass rush would certainly help him but you don't pay a flawed cb 5-8 mil/yr. it time to either let him walk next season or give him a cheap 1 mil 1 yr contract and see if he does better with another season in the system.

Powers should be nickel, and that's it. He leaves a 10+ cushion because he has no speed to catch up.

Funny how he went out and Butler came in, we started getting pressure since all the receivers were actually covered for once.

I'm sure this will be an area to be addressed with free agency and/or the draft. I would like to see some playing time go to others on the roster. Butler played well during the time he was in the game.

Powers has been having a very off year.

He doesn't have the speed for man coverage or the instincts for zone.

He really just tackles well and that is about it.

I don't see him sticking with the team after his contract is up.

I really like DRC and he would be a smart pick-up for the Colts.

Figured as much. Good to know Brown didn't injure anything else though.

Haven't found anything on Avery, so I would assume him not coming back in was a precaution is all.

Arians said Fleener and Davis were out and everybody else is day to day. I guess we will find out when they practice tomorrow

Powers has had some good moments, but overall has been pretty bad this year. However, it's a new scheme, and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and hope he improves a LOT this year...

    • Blockbuster trade ideas
      No disrespect intended but I sure will glad when Pre season starts.
    • ESPN shows a troublesome Colts drafting trend...
      Look at how long my post is.       Seriously, it's a really long post.   If I listed all the good things (and I have in countless other posts over the years)  then my post would read like War and Peace.      No one looks at a post that size and reads all of it.      It's a waste of everyone's time.   I've written what you written to me countless times over the years.    But I think things have changed.    So I'm more skeptical this year.      My hope lies with the new coaches we brought in to get the most out of our players.   I have publicly predicted we're going to win 10 games this season..    Though I did add that I would not be surprised if we only won 8.      But I'm not predicting 8 wins.       The only other negative thing I've added is that I don't see a deep run in the playoffs.        Make the playoffs --- yes.      Go far in the playoffs --- I don't see it.   And as I try to do when I make what could be viewed as a negative post,  I try to add that I hope I'm wrong.    I'd rather be wrong and the team does well than be right and the team do not as well.      I have my ego,  but it's not THAT out of control.      I'd like the team that I cheer for to do as well as it can.    Even if it means I'm wrong.  
    • Blockbuster trade ideas
      As we all know, the offseason can be really slow.  I figure a fun idea would be to try to come up with some blockbuster trades (I defined it as trades involving at least one starter) that would make sense for both sides involved (or, if you're daring, a 3-team trade).   1. New Orleans trade Drew Brees to Buffalo for Stephon Gilmore and a conditional 4th round pick in 2017 Why New Orleans would do it: It's no surprise that the Saints aren't a complete enough team to compete in the next couple of years.  Brees is currently 37 and likely only has 2 years left in him at best.  So New Orleans decides to go into retool (not rebuild) mode and get a young corner to help their porous defense, and a conditional 4th round pick to give them ammo to possibly move up in next year's draft to select a good QB of the future. While Buffalo would do it: Buffalo is a fairly complete team.  They have lots of weapons all over the place on offense and defense.  They are just a QB away from being Super Bowl contenders, in my opinion.  So they go into win-now mode and bring in Brees.  Some question the move because Brees has generally played in good conditions (San Diego, dome in New Orleans) and Buffalo isn't known for its temperate winters, but Brees can still play QB at a high level.  The Bills are also in contract talks with Stephon Gilmore, who is probably looking to get Josh Norman type of money in a contract extension.  Instead, the Bills decide to roll with Ronald Darby as their CB1 and hope the rest of their defense can pick up the slack to cover up the hole left by the leaving Gilmore.  Not only that, but with a consistent QB, they won't have as much pressure on their defense.   2. Chicago trades Jay Cutler to Cleveland for Duke Johnson and a conditional 3rd round pick in 2017 Why Chicago would do it: The Bears were essentially in fire-sale mode last year.  Around the trade deadline, there were reports that only a handful of players were off limits to trades and that everyone else was available.  The Bears won't be competing for the division title against the Packers and Vikings anytime soon, so they decide it's best to go into rebuild mode and try to build their team up again.  They get rid of Cutler, who has had a rocky tenure in Chicago.  In return, they get Duke Johnson and a conditional 3rd rounder.  John Fox likes to run the ball and Duke Johnson seems like he needs a change of scenery.  Not only that, but the current starting RB for the Bears is Jeremy Langford.  Plus, the Bears have a capable QB in Hoyer to get them through the season.  Alternatively, they try starting David Fales and go into full tank mode. Why Cleveland would do it: Cleveland is another of those teams that just needs a QB and they will have a decently complete roster.  They have a solid OL, and decent defense.  Cutler has shown he can play in bad weather (and he has a cannon for an arm), and he quietly had a not-too-bad season last year with over 3500 yards and just 11 picks.  Hue Jackson is a no-nonsense coach, so I think he will garner more respect from Cutler than people like Marc Trestman or Mike Tice.  Cleveland gets a 33 year old QB who can still play, and they put him behind a solid OL.  This trade could make the AFC North the most competitive division in football.   3. Washington trades Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson to Detroit for Stephen Tulloch and a 5th round pick Why Washington would do it: They drafted Josh Doctson 22nd overall, and it doesn't make sense to keep Jackson and Garcon when they combine for a nearly $20 mil cap hit.  With this trade, they get more defensive help Tulloch while not really hurting their pass catchers.  Doctson, Jackson/Garcon, and Reed is a solid group.  This move gets them some cap relief while bringing in some defensive help. Why Detroit would do it: With the unexpected retirement of Megatron, their top receivers are Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.  Neither one of those guys is a WR1, but I think both are good WR2s.  Detroit is also trying to trade Tulloch.  If they can't trade him, they'll have to cut him and get nothing in return.  Doing this gives them the chance to get rid of Tulloch and get something in return.  Not only that, but they partially fill the void left by Johnson's retirement.   These perhaps aren't all that realistic, but it's something fun to talk about.  The draft picks I included in my trade may be unrealistic, and I admit that I didn't put as much thought into that portion of this thread, but I figure they make at least a little bit of sense.  In the first two, I value QBs more than other positions.  So while Gilmore and Johnson are both young, they don't give you what a good QB can give you.  I made the Cutler trade a little higher of a draft pick just because the Browns would be able to keep Cutler (33 years old) for longer than the Bills would have Brees (37 years old).   What are some (realistic) trades you can come up with?
    • Brady to Appeal....
      The HOF has nothing to do with "sports hero". I know of two players that both have a year long suspension. Paul Horning and Alex Karras  were suspended for betting on NFL games. Even though they were teams suspensions the Colts suspended Eric Dickerson two times in two years. One time for 6 games and one time for 4 games for conduct detrimental to the team. Do you think Ben Roethlisberger wont be in the HOF because he is not considered a hero?

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
