If you make indefensible comments and prove it by not defending it with anything resembling an argument, point or fact, then it discredits your original comment. I am fine with accepting you're wrong with it. Apparently so are you since all these supposed better options don't really exist. If you can't suggest any names, you have no basis to complain that better guys were readily available to take the place of our staff. The only thing you have left is a personal attack because you can't argue the issue that you raised in the first place. And apparently you're not too asleep to read my posts and respond. You know you aren't required to do so, so you must be interested so you lost that argumentative insult via your actions as well.
Haeg went in the 5th 155th player picked. Our pick I liked least was Morrison in the 4th making him the 125th player taken. I saw him go undrafted in some mocks. NFL.com had him a 7th - proirity FA. I was surprised.
There were a lot of options on the board at 125 I do recall that. Judon was one of them Ravens took him 21 players later the 146th player picked. I was hoping for D. Hall CB or Robinson CB LSU I liked Judon and RB Dixon there as well.
That doesn't really conflict with what I saw. I am not quite as optimistic overall because we really need to win early as our second half of the schedule is brutal so it's critical to be at least 6-2 the first half if we have sights on a great season, though reading this I just saw the Mewhort isn't gone for season? That's big big news and really changes a lot once he's back. Of course it seems usually when the Colts say 2-4 weeks, it turns out to be 6-8 weeks, but let's hope for once their optimism is true.
I think Castonzo is a serious problem. Not sure how you fix him as you'd think it is a mental problem rather than health because it has carried over across last season until now. Philbin has his work cut out.
We need to take a page out of the Patriots notebook. Their line was very average last year, yet the offense put up great numbers. If your offensive line has trouble pass blocking and can't run block, you need to turn the short passing game into your running game. Short, quick drops and dump it off or throw darts on quick slants. Patriots kill teams doing that. We did beat the Broncos with less talent on offensive line last year so I'm still hopeful Chud will game plan better against good defensive teams like the Eagles during the regular season.

Hello Colts Nation
I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.
Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel. Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.
I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum? Do I have to have so many replies before approved? I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.
I finally found the section on the rules to posting. :-)
