Top 5 Free Agents for Colts

98 posts in this topic

1. Sean Smith CB Miami- reuniting the pair of dolphins could be huge considering powers can't play man effectively

2. Mike Wallace WR Pittsburgh- Donnie Avery can't consistently produce and TY can't seem to hold on to the ball

3. Dwayne Bowe- See Above

4. Glenn Dorsey- could play opposite of Redding and be more consistent then moala

5. Jake Long/ Ryan Clady- needed elite pass protecters, the reason they are so low is because neither are expected to hit free agency

Long and Smith are total garbage. Ask ANY Phins fan. They get beat regularly now. I'd like to get Wallace too. And how do you know for a fact that Dorsey would be more consistent than Moala? Moala has played well when he's healthy.

My 2 cents on the guys mentioned.

1. Good in theory, but he's been getting worked this year and will probably be a priority re-sign for the Fins anyways.

2. I would love Wallace but not at what he probably will demand.

3. Just not a fan of Bowe at all.

4. Haven't seen much of Dorsey, but hasn't he been considered somewhat of a bust to this point?

5. Would be ecstatic to get either but neither will be available.

considering the fins have low cap space I doubt it there was an article on CBS sports about how they might have to choos between long smith heart line and bush

Didn't know about their cap space, just that he's the best corner they have and that says a lot considering he's playing like butt right now.

Umm no he is not better than Powers. In any way, shape, or form. Except in size, though his "toughness" is that of a 5 year old school girl. You REALLY need to watch him play. Or just head to the Fins forum and see how they feel about Long and Smith.

Just read all the knee-jerk reaction threads about the Colts game. They all hold Smith accountable. As well he should be. Dude sucks.

Sean Smith seems to be a better athlete than he is a corner, somewhat similar to Cromartie. As for Long, I think it's incorrect to say he is garbage. He is one of the best players in the league. He might be having an off year for whatever reason, but that doesn't mean he is bad.

I think may favorite quote in this entire thread is where one poster said to prove his point, one need only ask any FINS fan to tell you how bad certain players are.

Like fans are the ultimate decider in such matters.

Holy cow...........

I would love to have another talented CB on the roster so Im fine with bringing in a Sean Smith or Rodgers-Cromartie.

Other than that, I dont know if I'd want anyone else on your list. Clady will probably be resigned with Denver, and I still think Miami will pay Long. Plus Im not sure Constanzo can play RT yet. He's so used to the left side.

As for bringing in a WR, Im fine with doing that but not overspending for one like Wallace or Bowe. Id rather get someone like Danny Amendola for a cheaper contract. Plus we already have our speed WRs in Avery and Hilton and both are good.

who is going to be luck's number one

Hilton doubt it More of a complementary guy

Brazill doubt it

Avery with injury history no

Collie probably gone

I don't think luck wants to wait for a draft pick to develop to a viable receiver

So either we pick one now or use our cap space for a young and productive guy or have luck deal with what Sam Bradford has to

I'm guessing this was about my comment. Let me re-quote myself.

I said to watch him play OR see the feedback about him on their forum. Never did I say to go ask any Fins fans to tell him how bad certain players are.

Sorry, didn't mean to give you such a hard time.... but I'm not sure your explanation is all that much better.

So..... let me put it another way.... suppose a fan from another team had asked us in early October how our OL was.... what might our fans have said to that?

It would have been a scene straight out of 'Animal House'....

Linkenbach -- DEAD!!

Justice -- DEAD!!

Olson -- DEAD!!

Reitz -- DEAD!!

Satele -- DEAD!!

(feels like I'm forgetting someone?)

Neidermeyer -- DEAD!!!!!!!! :thmup:

And look at the Colts O-line now? They're healthy and playing together and gelling... now, are they great? Heck, no! Are they even good? meh..... but, they're OK, and they're clearly dramatically improved over what they were at the beginning of the year.

The point is.... fans -- and I include me in that group -- as much as we know, we just don't know that much. (Thank you, Jim Mora Sr.!!)

We don't know the behind the scenes. We don't know about certain injuries. We don't know about coaching issues? There's lots that goes on that we just don't know.

Goodness, to read our own boards you'd think that playing without any cornerbacks would be better for the Colts than playing for any of the guys on our roster. All I read is negative stuff about ALL our guys (until Thursday and Butler) Powers, Davis, Vaughn, etc, all of them SUCK Big Time according to Colt's Nation. Now, Butler is flavor of the month. And the moment he is burned like toast, then fans here will jump off his bandwagon faster than you can say.... "The Butler did it!" (Sorry.....)

I take all of this stuff with giant grains of salt. Lots of them. I try to quote or cite NFL personnel people that I like and trust as my sources. I don't much care what fans think of this guy or that guy....

It's fun being a fan, but we're all just fans.... even me.... (Heck, ESPECIALLY me!) :thmup:

Hope that clarifies things....

Meh Smith is at least a good a Corner as Powers has been (obviously not saying much at all), and some think we have to resign Powers (I think Powers is hanging on by a thread now at this point, Arians was talking about Butler starting at #2), Smith Better then Powers? Not from what I have seen but certainly could compete with Powers for the Nickel if we had him as for Cromartie, Powers nor Smith are in his league

I think we would be fine with Wayne as our #1, Avery and Hilton as complimentary, Amendola as a dependable slot WR, and remember our young TEs will be a year better. Thats still plenty of weapons. Id rather spend the money to improve the OL and defense.

We have this guy named Vontae Davis that we gave away a 2nd round pick for that looks like a steal from the phins. We won't be throwing any money on a high priced free agent CB.

My free agent wishlist is this (for inexpensive contracts)...

WR Danny Amendola to be our starting slot WR

CB Dominique Rodgers Cromartie to start opposite Davis

NT- A quality veteran NT to share time with Chapman

LT Jake Long (less likely, but if Grigson and company think he can get back to his former self, and they also feel Costanzo can be a very good RT, then this may happen.)

What I want:

Amendola

DRC

Clady/Long/One of Bills OG

Draft: Pending who is available trade down to 2nd for Kenny V. If we get solid option draft DE/OLB in first.

Resign: Powers

Let Freeney walk

We were interested in Jenkins and we got Davis. That tells you how desperate we are for a CB. I used to laugh at Jenkins and now I laugh at Davis. We have to get better at corner. Period, whomever it is.

Why so much love for DRC? He has been a major disappointment in Philly and is only hyped up because of his marketable name. Tell me, have any of you guys seen him play? I wouldn't want anything to do with him. or Smith.

Jake Long has been awful this season, he got torn up by OUR below-par pass rush. As for Sean Smith all I hear about him from Dolphins fans is that he just out right stinks.

Top 5 Free Agents for Colts in no particular order

1.Tracy Porter

2.Kenny Phillips

3.Eben Britton

4.Andy Levitre

5.Mike Devito (If he can stay healthy this season) alternate #5 Brent Grimes but I bet he gets resigned

Really I only see us signing 1-2 on that list if they become available and thats Britton and Phillips, , Porter probably wont see FA

A few good FA options:

OG Andy Levitre, Buffalo Bills - by far the best FA guard in 2013. It's not even close. The Colts' OL needs a guy like this,

OLB Anthony Spencer, Dallas Cowboys - One of the better strongside 34 outside linebackers in the NFL. Plays the run fantastic and can get after the QB. Experienced in dropping into coverage. Plays opposite DeMarcus Ware and drops quite a bit. Therefore he doesn't get the same attention and statistical production as other edge rushers.

OLB Connor Barwin, Houston Texans - another option for the edge. Freeney won't be a Colt beyond the 2012 season.

CB Mike Jenkins, Dallas Cowboys - Trained and well suited for bump and run man coverage. A little marred by injuries though.

CB Domininique Rodgers-Cromartie, Philadelphia Eagles - Really, he's yet to put it togehter on the field. But he has all kinds of physical tools, and Pagano might be the one to coach him up and showcase the talent.

Draft options for first three picks (in no particular order):

1st round: OG Chance Warmack, CB, Demarcus Milliner, CB Xavier Rhodes, OLB Dion Jordan, DL Sheldon Richardson, DE/OLB Damontre Moore, LB Manti Te'o, LB CJ Mosley, S Tony Jefferson, S Kenny Vaccaro.

2nd round: Traded to Miami.

3rd round: OT Brennan Williams (senior who got hurt in 2012, could drop because of that), OT/OG Dallas Thomas (He probably won't be here, but if he is, get him!!!), OT Oday Aboushi, OT Ricky Wagner, OG Larry Warford, CB Desmond Trufant, CB Micah Hyde, LB Michael Mauti, S Bacarri Rambo, S Robert Lester

4th round: CB Darius Slay, LB Jake Knott, LB Khaseem Greene

it should be needless to say, not all of these guys will be available in the given rounds. Some will though.

    •   So, you think I made some good choices? 2006CBE asked who I wanted for Harvey -- Rizzo and Bryant were not available. I think Contreras is the best. I know you guys like Schwarber but something about his weight bothers me. If Zobrist was under 28, I might have wanted him. If you still had Fowler, that is a guy I might want.   Given what you have, Contreras would be best for us. It won't haopen though. 
    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
