I reckon that'll be the last we see of Powers here in Indy. Nice to see Chapman activated.

The same may stand for Nevis.

Chapman's time has come.

Hmm, what happened to Nevis?

There's no further info on Nevis and Powers... Seems like they didn't meet FO's expectations.

I didn't know Nevis's and Power's injuries were that bad.

Considering our loss of McKinney, we're all excited to see if he is special.

According to Satele he's pretty darn good. Time will tell but I'm STOKED

Really struggled to stay healthy his entire career. Good player, good tackler. Doesn't seem to fit in the 3-4, man coverage defense.

Arians did say today in his presser that Chapman would most likely see limited action vs Pats sunday

Very intersting...a vet center says the guy's good....then maybe he can really play....he has to reason to talk up a rookie

Is anyone really surprised that Powers didn't finish the season? If so, is that rock you're living under very heavy?

You were counting on Powers to save us?

I'm ok with a trio of Davis, Butler and Gordy. I don't care for Vaughn. But man we're thin at CB right now.

Lot of potential. Tough kid. Definitely a hard position to learn. Don't expect miracles.

I liked Nevis and Powers, maybe they will be better fits on another team.

I'd bring him back as 3rd or 4th corner on the cheap. Other then that, no. He wasn't playing well anyway and he's never lasted a full season.

It's a toe. The specifics aren't out there, but it must be pretty bad to be put on IR.

Leaving us with a round total of zero corners left over from 2011. Powers wasn't very good this year so I'm not crying over it...

Nevis was a good piece in our rotation. Doubt if he is back next year, too short.

Powers might be a nickle next year for the right $$, but I think they would be looking for someone better.

Definitely looking forward to seeing Chapman holding ground and getting off some blocks.

very excited to see chapman activated but sucks about nevis. I thought he was playing pretty well. Hopefully he can come back healthy next season and get one more chance so long as his cap hit isn't too high for taking that risk. As for powers, he's played fairly well for us but I have had my doubts as to whether he was suited for this type of defense. He was scouted and drafted to play in the cover 2/tampa 2 defense of the old regime. That doesn't mean much to me in regards to guys in the front 7, but when it comes to coverage guys that means quite a bit. I still expect the colts to make a hard push for rodgers-cromartie in free agency but I'm very interested to see how Bulter can do for the remainder of the season.

Thanks..I'm not bashing him..I just know little about him....

..again...a vet has no reason to talk up a rookie unless he can do something...and we need a run-stopper. Alabama? He's played pro already :goodluck:

hopefully you cant hide from the intensified Tide...

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
