Candidates to replace Chapman's spot from other teams' PS

18 posts in this topic

Marcus Forston - 6'1", 301 (Pats PS, he went to the U)

Alameda Ta'amu - 6'3", 348 (Steelers PS)

Rob Callaway - 6'5", 312 lbs (Cowboys PS)

Chigbo Anunoby - we know him :) (Redskins PS)

Jordan Miller - 6'2", 315 lbs (Packers PS)

Hebron Fangupo - 6'1", 323 lbs (Seahawks PS)

Thoughts on any of these???

Alameda Ta'amu and Chigbo Anunoby make the most sense. Ta'amu is probably not likely due to his legal problems.

Since the replacement is really for Moala at DE (Chapman hasn't played anyway), I'd guess they don't add a NT. Just my two cents. Although DL depth does become a concern. Any chance Freeney goes to DL, Hughes starts opposite Mathis, and we see another position added?

We're thin (no pun intended) at both spots with Fili and Chapman on IR. But we probably have less talent at NT.

Agreed, I'm just thinking the rotation at NT doesn't change with Chapman's injury, since he was never in it. But you are right, the DL now needs the body in all likelihood.

I'd go with Marcus Forston for two reasons: 1) he's a 3-4 DE with a lot of athletic ability, and we've put two DEs on the IR in the last couple of weeks, and 2) I'd like the Colts to steal him from the Pats right when the Pats are getting low on DEs. Since we get a roster spot from Moala and Chapman, I'd probably also re-sign either Chigbo or Nick Jean-Baptiste.

Not bad.

Whats going on with nicholas jean baptiste? Maybe worth playing.

Signed to PS on 9/18, released on 10/3, so he's a FA I believe. I'd think if the Colts saw something they liked, he would still be on the PS.

Here is what I would consider after giving it some thought and not rushing an answer:

I would use multiple formations like we do now 4-3, 3-4 and 5-2

4-3 alignment would be this

RE-Freeney

DT-Anunoby

DT-Ta'amu (If he proves to have his head on straight which I doubt)

LE-Mathis

olb's

Conner-He was an OLB in college so he is familiar with that position

Hughes

ILB-Freeman, Fokou-better run stuffer and heavy hitter then Angerer

3-4

DE-Redding

NT-Johnson/Tevasue rotate

DE-Not sure maybe Guy

OLB's

Mathis

Hughes

ILB's

Freeman

Fokou

5-2

DE-Redding

DT-Ta'amu

NT-Antonio Johnson/Tevasue

DT-Anunoby

DE-Matthews/Lawrence/Geathers

LB's-Freeman, Fokou

Thats all if we picked Anunoby up and Ta'amu combined with Moala and Chapman being injured

Did anyone watch Washington Huskies football games while Ta'amu was playing? That defense, and run D in particular, was horrific. Or wonder how a fourth round draft pick never gets on the field? Or are concerned about 14 criminal counts and a likely guilty plea coming? I get it's hard to find reasonably athletic 350 pound men who have played 3-4 NT. But I've never understood the love for Ta'amu. Or Baptiste for that matter. They were the anchors of some of the worst defenses in all of BCS football. And Baptiste is a FA, and Ta'amu nearly was too, as he cleared waivers to get to the Steelers PS.

Anunoby for NT makes sense and like someone else said, Marcus Forston or Jordan Miller for 3-4 DE.

    • Why?  Because they did not tell you Langford's status in the half second after it happened?    
    • Thank you.  My favorite thing about the interview was : " Hope so, hope so. But that’s definitely been a point of focus for me this offseason, just getting better at rushing the passer, because it was almost embarrassing for me last year — at least coming from college, where whenever I worked one of my moves, I kind of expected to beat the guy. In the league, I guess you kind of have to accept that the dudes across from you are getting paid quite a bit, too. You’re not going to win every single time, so that’s definitely been a focal point for me, working on that this offseason for sure. "  
    • Baltimore should Thank Charles Dickens for the name of there football team as well as Cleveland for there team simply put the team & name come from outside Baltimore . They celebrate a team & name whose origins are from elsewhere while trying to tell Indianapolis Colts fans how Colts history & a Lombardi belong to there city .    “You will be greatly shocked and grieved,” Charles Dickens wrote to a friend in 1841, “to hear that the Raven is no more!” His pet raven, Grip, had died. At the behest of his children, Dickens wrote poor Grip in his most recent book, Barnaby Rudge, maintaining in its pages Grip’s name and his loquacious powers of imitating human speech. In 1842, Edgar Allan Poe shook hands with Charles Dickens in Philadelphia, and spoke about Barnaby Rudge, which Poe had recently reviewed with the criticism that Dickens should have given the raven a prophetic presence in the story. In 1845, a prophetic raven was penned into existence, this time by the American author. The creation spawned reproach itself, as some judged Mr. Poe as lying in the shadow of Mr. Dickens, as may be derived from James R. Lowell’s journalistic jingle: Here comes Poe with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,
      Three-fifths of him genius and two-fifths sheer fudge. 170 years later, however, nearly everyone knows Poe’s raven, and nearly no one knows Dickens’—or even Barnaby Rudge’s, for that matter. Grip the raven is forgotten; another raven holds the world in its grip: the raven named Nevermore. As Poe purposefully reincarnated Dickens’ merry raven into his macabre ravings, so too do people purposefully reincarnate the relentless madness of Poe’s raven into their own ravings—making them beautiful in their terror. Your welcome for the history lesson interesting as it might be , Baltimore of old & new was made by others in other cities & enjoyed by many who created nothing much without the help of others so that Baltimore could call it its own , history evolves those who fail to study it do not .

He very likely is either asking to much or teams think he will ask to much after he signs a minimal contract after it expires. Plus there are not many teams with much money actually. Some are over the cap even
    • The only real fact is the season has yet to start so we have only opinions not facts to go on so many here are less then educated & none are as smart as THEY may think book smart & common sense are not they same . IMO the education for all will begin soon & this here garbage will be replaced with hard cold facts . No one here is a genius .
