Davis is starting to worry me. We gave up a 2nd round pick for someone that has played 5 games so far.

Are you also worrying about all the other players we have lost due to injury? I think there have been good players on other teams lost to injury, it is fairly common.

How in the world are we going to keep up with Tom Brady and the Pats this week? Their defense has a strong front 7, not that our run game was anything to write home about, but without our tight ends to hit the creases we wont be able to open up our offense. We do have pretty reliable WR options and NE defense is rounding out the bottom of the barrel, but with limited playmakers on offense, I think Brady-Bel combos going to have an easier time hitting us where we're weak. I was reading http://bit.ly/XFUWkH and many of the ESPN and player bloggers agree. The main weakness for the pats is down the middle of the field. Our backups better step up, or 11 Patriot defenders are going to be flocking to Reggie on every play...

I agree. Its not like he was injury prone before coming to us so Im hoping these injury issues dont last with him.

We still have Allen, who I like all around better than Fleener imo.

At least it appears Justice and Brown will play this week. Also Satele, but I'm not that happy about that one because I'd rather continue to see Shipley.

I don't understand the gloom. I've been pretty dang happy with the Wayne/Avery/Hilton trio. It's a better group than Welker/Lloyd/Branch. And I'd take Brazill over that Edelman punk any day. If you watched the Patriots/Bills game this last weekend, you should be pretty optimistic about our offense hanging 45 points on them...

Does he have a history of injuries? If not, I'll just chalk it up to "one of those things...."

When he has played, he's played well.

I don't see us beating the pats with of without them. maybe i am too negative, but i don't think we can score enough points to keep up with the brady bunch. luck has 7 int and 2 tds on the road. billy b probably has film on our practices and the game book too.

would rather have our injured back to face the bills the following week.

i would take ne giving 9. sorry but true

I'm a Fleener fan. I'm an Allen fan. What I don't get is typically the two get compared and contrasted in discussions. The intent was to have them both playing together, not competing against each other. Allen is just fantastic - other than Luck our 2nd most impactful rookie. That's got nothing to do with Fleener. I think Fleener ultimately will be a more significant weapon than Allen. That's why I want him to get on the field to get that experience, get that 1st TD monkey off his back. He really started coming along as Luck's 3rd down safety valve. For me, I'm excited about both of our rookie Tight Ends and don't wish to compare them or pick one over the other. We need 'em both.

I was impressed with how our young team played against the patriots. Our offense performed better than i thought they would but Luck has to be more careful with the ball http://bit.ly/QU0Gp5. As we add talent and depth to our roster next year, Luck wont have to force passes to move our offense.

Position wise- what should our first 4 draft picks be? Thoughts....

1. OLB

2. S

3. DT

4. RB

    • The Trouble With Andrew Luck
      Last year, he struggled mightily at interpreting what defenses were doing. The Bills and Jets had him looking like a rookie at times. But in 2014, he was brilliant at times with a number of his throws and pre-snap reads.   It makes me wonder how much Pep changed the offense from 2014 to last year.
    • The reasons Osweiller chose Houston
      Depends on the person.  If they think being an NFL player is the only way to make a lot of money, they might chase the biggest paycheck.  If they realize that they can change careers and still make lots of money when they're 40, 50, or even 80 years old, but they can't change careers and win a SB, maybe they take less money to play on a better team.   Ask a retired player if they would go back and give up a SB for more money, or if they would give money back to have that SB.  Some players might want the extra money (Charles Haley could sell off 4 SBs and still be a SB winner), but I would bet that most, especially the ones that never won a SB, would gladly give money back to get that SB (I think Dan Marino actually said this in an interview once).
    • Possible 4th WR Candidate....
      i don't get the we are to small at WR. The smallest guy has yardage numbers that compare favorably with the best WR's in league history. Anyone remember Marvin? Not a big guy. Who's been arguably the best in the league the last couple of years Id say A Brown again size?    I don't think the FO puts the premium on size the board does. We are thin at WR too? It appears we have about 8 guys battling for 1 spot. How is that thin?    If you aren't happy with who we have say that but Hilton Moncrief Dorsett and very likely Bray make up 4 of the 5 WR's we have on the 53 man. We could keep 6 but I think 5 is the number 
    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      Jones is slow and struggles to get seperation. That's why he didn't have a team last September when the Pack signed him off the street. He seems like a good guy but I don't think we need him here.   We will only keep 5 or 6 WR's. We know barring injury Hilton Moncrief and Dorsett are on the 53 man. I think we can pencil Bray in because of his KR duties. He may slide to 5th on the WR depth chart but I think he finds his way on the roster. That would leave us with 1 maybe 2 roster spots.   We have guys that can fill those spots in camp. Brian Tyms is the guy I think has a real shot 6'3 205lbs. This will be his 4th year in the league. He had a huge 2014 preason looked like a break out player. I stashed him on my fantasy league roster. Then he was hit with a 4 game suspension to start the season he didn't see a lot of chances on offense after that but was a good gunner on ST's. One of reasons I think he has an inside track. He missed all last season with an injury.    We have a lot of talent that we brought in as UDFA's. I really like Tevaun Smith from Iowa. After his pro day I was surprised he went udrafted. 6'1 208lbs catches anything close. He ran the 40 in 4.38. He had a 38-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump.short shuttle in 4.26 seconds and the three-cone in 6.72 seconds   We also have McKay 6'5 kid from Cinn.  A sleeper i will be watching is Leak from Maryland, Rodgers Gramblimg is intersting. Then we signed Stangby back in Jan. If we decide we need WR help It should not be hard to find. We could have signed Hartline or Jones this week. I'd take Hartline of the two.   The TE panic I really don't get I think we keep 3. The 2 TE sets are gone. We have a proven starter and back up in Allen and Doyle. The camp battle for the 3rd spot between Swoope, Griswold, and Miller should be one of the best battles in camp this year. I predict Griswold takes it. We look good at TE from here. 
    • Training Camp Battle-MLB
      Irving is known for his run stopping ability and not his coverage skills... Losing 20lbs may help him in coverage, but he isnt known for that.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
