This year I'm 32... and for the first time in my Colts fandom that I can remember I can get a jersey with my own name on the back (IIRC the NFL has weird rules on customer jerseys with active player surnames), so #32 looks like it's destiny for me. Going to be pulling hard for T.J. it seems. Does anyone know what the T.J. stands for?
I think Mario WIlliams was about 290 when he went to OLB for the Texans and he was having a tremendous year before getting hurt. I know Okine is no Mario Williams but from what I hear Okine is pretty athletic. I wouldn't imagine him being the rush OLB but an edge setter behind Walden. With the depth at d line and lack of depth at OLB it doesn't hurt to try. Especially because he might not make the team if he is just a 3-4 de considering that depth.
I think most are optimistic the players drafted will be an upgrade in the roster. I think any flaws are pretty much listed and discussed in this forum. As far as downplaying other rosters you are dead wrong. I guess you haven't been in this forum much lately?
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
