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.

Id have to take a flyer on Ta'amu. To much talent to not pass up. If he is still a screw up cut him.

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.

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.

Chigbo makes the most sense

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.

    I was listening to CBS sideline Thursday Night Football reporter Tracy Wolfson talk about Saints WR Kenny Stills having to "tape up his groin" in the 2nd half & that phrase made me cringe because ankles I get, but tape & a sensitive region of the body doesn't sound all that wonderful to me. Enough said.

    Preparing for my second Indy trip. A stopover but a long trip none the less. I want a Colts victory but wonder what the Indy weather surprise me. Last year on my first trip to the LOS it was cold, my first trip this year it rained!

    They stopped giving me Candy when I was 16 cause I was 6'1and they thought I was older than 16. 4 years later I'm 20 & 6'4...... but this time around, I have little cousins that I shall invoke my "Accompanying" 5% Charge on their collections tonight :). Who says Halloween isn't for us older folks? Haha
