With my changes, I have 53. Players with bold/underline with a ' - ' in front of them mean I removed them from the OPs roster and players with a ' + ' were my additions. I axed Todman, Boyce, Tyms, Kerr, McNary, and Okine. I added Griswold, Blythe, Haeg, McClure, Thompson and Bates. I think the OP had Good listed 2x and I just removed one of them.
I put Miller on the PS, as at this point I don't think he's much more than a project, but he is pretty freakish in terms of his size.
I tend to agree with you on Maggit, and won't be shocked if we IR him -- double digit sacks in the SEC is a big deal, and without having seen how healthy he will get, or how well he will play after a year off, I could see us running the risk of having him scooped by another team if he is left on our PS. The guy has upside, for sure... whether he can return to health and remain healthy is yet to be seen.
Thompson is a guy who produced and was a football player in college, but I think his tests are what killed him (he ran a 4.95/4.99 in the 40, which I could see turning teams off). I am hoping he turns out to be good -- Syracuse has produced some good DE/LBs in the past (see Freeney, Chandler Jones), so here's hoping we got lucky with Thompson.
I don't know what to think about Herrara, I think he has potential, but don't know about it translating. I kept him on my PS, as I think for the team to keep him there last year and bring him back this year says something.
I am hoping we can generate a pass rush this year and Butler can get back to being the slot CB he was a couple years back, when I thought he was one of the best slots in the game. Outside of Davis, we don't really know what we have in the other CBs (I'm thinking Robinson is an upgrade by default to Toler), and I don't think we've seen enough of Smith or Mitchel to really know what to expect.
I'm in California, so I can't provide any direct commentary from the perspective of a Jags fan, Texans fan, or a Titans fan, however, I do chat on the Jaguars forums from time to time. There was a thread mentioning who was the most hated team and the Colts were among the most mentioned teams, along with the Titans, and Patriots. It seams that people from all over the U. S do not like the Patriots.
Within the AFC, we were the most hated for obvious reasons. We were the king of the hill for so long, and still are, IMO.
In Houston the Colts are number one on the Texans hit list and for some reason they are licking their chops for the upcoming season. What about the Jags and Titans townspeople? Are The Colts the most hated their as well?
They were a pretty good team last year with lots of injuries and a revolving door of mediocre QB's. I think Brock is pretty good and will play hard for them. The defense is one of the best in the NFL. Lamar Miller is a very good RB.
When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.
I'm still late to the party, but story of my life. I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.
My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.
My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.
1. Peyton Manning
2. Marvin Harrison
3. Reggie Wayne
4. Dallas Clark
5. Brandon Stokely
Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.
You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points. You are wrong. I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion. My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.
I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy. Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.
I have been posting for probably a year or so now. I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70. I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98. I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game. We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV! Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
