I know one thing they are not near the same team without him just like we aren't without a HEALTHY Andrew. This injury and recovery will be interesting to follow and watch. A lot of us in here including myself kept thinking Andrew would come back and would be back by the Houston game and he never came back. A back injury is nothing to mess around with, that type of injury can end a career. As fan I would like for the Colts to play them at full strength as it would be more satisfying if we beat them. Hopefully he recovers, I don't wish injury on anyone. The league is better when he's playing, he and Andrew are the 2 faces of the Division.
OK, why would they sign Chase Daniel? Daniel will be taking important reps away from developing Wentz. He does not have good stats and is getting good chunk of cash for filling as the backup. Carson has a long way to go before being a Franchise QB and hee needs those backup QB reps. But if he somehow turns out like Aaron Rodgers in 3 years, maybe it was well worth the short term cap pain and QB logjam.
Calling Moore/Irving unproven is a bigger stretch than my thinking they are an improvement. Both have played well in this league before coming to the Colts.
They both have admitted to being off last year (either trade with new system or overweight after an injury).
I will admit that either I should have used way more > for the Robinson/Toler or a >= for the Moore/Irving/Freeman to show that it is a lesser of an improvement. Yet I highly doubt anyone will say "I wish we kept Freeman" any time during the season.
Welcome jseg18!!! We will pretend that you were not even close to being a Niner fan. No, from Montana and then Young they were fun to watch. I hope we all have fun this year. I do not think the Colts are going to be 3rd in the South.....Have fun.
