Yeah, but also factor in that Mike Wallace is a lot better than Donnie Avery.

Dudes, we gotta keep Avery. He played with so much pressure on his career this year and a contract will calm him down and let him focus on his playmaking abilities, he showed flashes and hes only going to get better with some rythme in his life instead of moving around the country on one year contracts. he's paid his dues and he deserves some love from us. We HAVE to re-sign MOALA!! and it would be a feel good story if we give Butler a home. seriously, he deserves it. like Avery, he's paid his dues to be here. In the nickle and dime, he has a cunning knack for figuring out the Quarterback and hes only going to get better knowing he can call Lucas Oil his home. Seriously,most of the keys to our success came from guys on one year contracts and they played with so much pressure all year and as a fan, im DAMN happy to be 11-5 and charging full speed into the playoffs! Give these boys a home and they will give us the best years of their careers and be proud of it too.

Free Agentcy: Would love levitre gholston kruger and cary williams, but we would not need to get two tackles.

Draft: Would love to get a elite pass rusherlike mingo, but i think Gaurd is a larger concern (warmack, jones) and get a ok rusher in 3-4 rounds. Also WE DO NOT NEED A RUNNING BACK!! But apart from that great list

Mike Wallace may be a lot better than Avery,   but I don't think he's worth 5-6 times what Avery is.

 

Wallace will want $50 Mill over 5 years.     Avery will likely re-sign for $2 Mill a year for 3-4 years.     Huge difference.

 

I don't think Wallace is worth close to that.     I'd be perfectly happy to keep Avery and pair him with TYH and Brazill to go with Wayne and one other WR.    Combine those WR's with the expected improved play from our TE's,  and we should be fine at the receiver spot.

I've gone off the idea of signing Wallace in recent weeks. But I don't want Avery back either.

I agree that if we could land either Albert or Vollmer we would be good at the tackle position with Constonza on the other side but I wanted us to go after both and see what we could land.  I'm a little concerned that Mingo would even be available at the back half of the first round and I do think we'll have a better shot at Warmack.  

 

We've got to spend the latter two picks on the defense though, specifically with run defense.  We are fourth worst in the league in run defense.  We need to do something about our NT, DT, or ILB positions.

As previously stated above i believe one tackle will do, and we dont need another running back, just give donald brown and vick ballard a good oline and they will look great. We should get an offensive lineman early

    • Became diehard lifelong Colts fan in 2004 when Manning and the Colts put up galactic numbers and torched opponents in the regular season.  It was the first year that NFL games were available on TV in Hungary, my small country oversees. Unfortunately it was also a time when Brady and Belichik ruled the playoffs so I still have to face a lot of arrogant Pats fans over here with jerseys in the wrong blue color.  Nevertheless, just to give you an idea: soccer being the most popular sport in Hungary, the championship game of our tiny american football league draws a larger crowd than the total of the 8 soccer games in a regular game day of our national league.  I couldn't make it to London this weekend, my heart broke, feel devestated. Been reading this forum and other Colts blogs for many years and somehow the time has come to become more active in posting. One last thing I wanted to tell you. Part of it me becoming so fond of the Colts were you guys. The optimism, the supportive attitude and the patience toward the team, it was clearly perceptible not only in the Colts organization since the Dungy years but also in its fandom. I always though that these traits clearly distinguish the Colts fans from those of all other 31 teams and honestly from anything we used to see here in Europe where the popular soccer teams change their coaches every other year. I recognize the tone has become more unpatient around here recently also, I mean these complaint threads dedicated to Pags and Grigs pinned on the forum... but maybe it's a good thing to contain our sudden emotions and reactions. However I promise I'll try to keep my cool even in difficult times, rather put away my anger by means of humor and irony so that our message boards remain indeed smarter and more sensible than those of any other team. Can't wait to chat with you guys on this forum and Go Colts in the Wembley!
    • Tankersly I think has a first round grade from Kiper and perhaps McShay....     So, I would't be confident that he'd last to our pick in the 3rd round....   Also,  the problem with those 3 picks is that there's no running back.     I'd hate to wait until the 4th round to take a RB.      This is a great class of backs,  I'd prefer to take one of them on Day 2......   Oh,  and I think there's little chance that Freeman lasts until our pick in the 3rd round.       Believe he'll be gone before the end of R2.      
    • I respect what you're trying to do with the mock and plug holes and of those that I have knowledge on, I don't dislike any of your picks.   Although, I would be very hesitant to give away 2 2nd round picks just to get a higher 2nd round pick. Too many holes to fill and ageing vets to replace to start trading away high picks.
    • Figures, Heath Evans probably has the Jags beating us by 30. I will stick with 27-20. I predicted the Jags would be a .500 team this season and were overrated but they always play us good for some reason even when they are bad. I say we win by 7.
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
