Yikes! I think he did a decent job this season coming off the bench in spot duty. Lets hope Vick Ballard can hold up the rest of the season.

And he's replaced by Deji Karim and Mwelde Moore. Arggghhhh! Talk about signing two players who don't equal 1 of Donald Brown. I also see that we've signed Dave Megetts son Davin Megett to the practice squad and released Alvester Alexander for the 100th time. It appears Megett was originally signed as an UFA this season by the Texans. I wonder are we trying to squeeze information out of him about their offense and their calls.

I hate all this bad running back news!

Ugh... We need some RBs BAD. Everyone is injured LOL.

I thought Sunday at one point we'd have no RB, Ballard went out for a play or two.

Losing Brown hurts. Moore used to be good in blitz pickup and was a good receiver. Karim was ok in preseason and had some moments vs Jacksonville. This is about as good as the Colts could do but Brown was a big play threat and played his best football at times this year.

They have to be stop gap at best. I hope Carter is okay, he and Ballard are going to be the main guys on Sunday.

just depth most likely. moore could be the 3rd down back though.

He was totally unimpressive both as a blocker and runner on his first stint. The hope is that he should know the plays well enough to not get Luck killed.

I see they signed Davin Meggett to the PS. He may have the most potential out of the new guys. Darn, I had a lot of hope for Hughes.

i doubt he sees much playing time. i think ballard has impressed enough to not need a rotation at RB.

At least Moore knows the offense and was still available. We got lucky.

I have to think that we are one of the most injuried, if not THE most injured team in the NFL. It seems every two weeks we are putting another key player on IR.

Bummer for DB, lots of potential but I think we might have seen the last of him in a Colts uniform.

My guess is yes. Brown was not a Grigson guy. Neither was Carter. Vick Ballard is. I'd be surprised to see either Brown or Carter back next year. Ballard has shown enough that he can be a lead back in the NFL. If Grigson can improve the line, Ballard might even be a top tier back.

DB is better than I initially gave him credit for. I think he get's his last season with the Colts, although I wouldn't be upset or surprised if he's let go. I do have to say if this is so long, then I salute him for providing us with the one of the most memorable Peyton moments..ever!

All true but getting rid of Carter and Brown sounds extreme, Why remove two players who have at least year left on there deal when neither are the problem only to have 2 unecessary holes to fill. I think both will be back next year and guys like Moore and Karim will be cut again, Both were brought in for depth

I disagree on Mewelde Moore. He had one bad game with the Colts this year with a fumble and a drop. He was called for holding twice on plays that McGlynn and Justice whiffed on blocks.....that Luck would have been killed spot on.

He is a veteran and has always been considered a reliable 3rd down back and pass blocker. He can also handle kickoffs when needed. Ballard, Carter, Karim, and Moore are fine. Not sure where the anti-Moore stuff is coming from.....why we EVER signed Alexander to the PS to begin with was a waste of time.

Like Donald Brown or not, he will be missed. Here is to hoping Ballard and Carter can hold up, and hold onto the ball!! GO Colts and good luck to DB in his recovery :colts: :colts: :colts: ...as well as Hughes. :coltslogo: :coltslogo: :coltslogo:

I don't know, he missed a lot of time.

This hurts a bit. I have been wanting Carter to get more carries. Now here is his chance. Karim looked good at times in the preseason also

No way does Brown get cut in the offseason. He is our fastest back, he can juke guys out of their shoes, and his blocking is top notch. Re-signing him the following offseason is a different story, but he will be on the roster next year.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
