Interesting. Apparently Griffin impressed them enough to give him another shot. Perhaps he needs conditioning and then can compete in training camp next year. He's a big boy at 6'6", 330 lbs.  :woah:

Quinton Spears is a huge LB with 6'4. I also like the signing of Larry Asante. All three are still young.

Even as we enter the playoffs, Grigson is still shaking the bushes and overturning every rock to find us players. And they want to give Horseface Executive of theYear?? For what? Making one decision?

What is that decision of Horseface (your words) get them to and winning the SB? :funny: Then what excuse do you have? :dunno:

He knows what he wants. Grigson is no doubt a great GM

6-4 is only "Huge" compared to recent Colts LB'ers..... 6-4 LB'ers are not rare in the NFL ; )

Sorry, Susie Q. The Broncos haven't won the Super Bowl yet. (Although they probably will.)

But the EOTY award should be given to someone for making more than one decision.

Sure, Horseface took a chance, giving Manning $19 million (of his owner's money), but the rest of the team was already filled with playmakers. 

In contrast, Grigson made a winning team out of rookies and castoffs. And to me, that's much more impressive.

I bet you wouldn't say that to Grigson's face.

Signing manning was not impressive or executive of the year material. He would have gone wherever he wanted. Biased sports media is all it is. I'd actually love to see manning and the broncs go one and done. By that's just me...

Grigson continues to make moves to try to improve the team. He has to be Executive of the Year!! He has done so much with so little

Well sure... "Hey Grigson!  Yeah, I'm talkin' to you!  I can't believe they want to give Executive of the year to that horse-face Elway, I think you deserve it." 

 

Not so bad.

I always thought Elway had a different face, but could never figure it out until now.

Okay, now that we all decided that Grigson is the EotY, let's get back to the post subject.

 

Looks like all three guys are decent projects.  Apparently they think Griffin has some talent after watching him for a week, just not enough to help right now.

 

Asante is a long shot, mainly ST player.  Spears is kind of intriguing, he's a speed rusher as far as I can tell.  You can never have too many of those kind of guys.  (If anyone know anything about him, please correct me if I'm wrong or add more info)

Interesting. I always liked Larry Asante when he played for the Bucs. Thought he had decent potential.

Why so defensive of Elway? It's not a slight on Manning. Or have you now completely moved your allegiencies to Denver?

Looks like Asante has some decent playing time. Spears looks like he needs to pack on some #'s

If Grigs dug em up, they are worthy of a try. He has earned that confidence.

The guy still knows how to scout players.  

 

Sometimes guys work out that you'd never guess would (Freeman).  We had Stevie Brown last year, he didn't do much for the Raiders and never did anything here.

 

Then he goes to the Giants and has 8 INTs.  Sometimes it just takes the right scheme.  You can never tell who will be that gem.

No I have not at all and I don't appreciate the comment that I might have.    I have been on this forum from the old forum before it was moved.    I am just tired of all the name calling of other players and team owners and such.  Let's all be adults and act like such. This post was about players and then someone got it off track and this is where it's ended just like most of the threads now days. 

 

Why can't we all get along and be the Colts Fans we used to be.   :sigh:

I agree Susie, I like the mature side as well. However, in defense of the jibe, Elway has given the ultimate diss to the horseshoe of any individual in the history of this franchise. He does deserve a little flak for that. That is my opinion.

That I also agree with you but it seem like every time I start reading an interesting thread it gets so off topic and the name calling begins.  I'm not a fan of Elway but I don't call him names I just ignore him or anything about him.  Works for me. :thmup:

No name calling from me, I asked a simple question, in order that I approach any future posts in the correct manner. Apologies if you thought I was having a go at you.

On the greater question of 'all getting along', that's going to be tough, as there are certainly about 20% of Posters on here who are set on dissing our team or our QB for whatever reason they have. And with all these new trolling posters, it does get some of us a little bent out of shape at times, which is very poor form, but human nature.

It is also very likely that people who openly support Manning on here will take flak, rightly or wrongly, if the comments are detrimental to Indy.

What works for one person doesn't always work for another though. We don't all live on Walton's Mountain......

And if it did, it would be kind of boring.....

Elway is a horse-face and that is the nicest thing I can say about him.

 

As far as these signings go...not too exciting on the surface but I trust Griggs' evaluation of talent.

***Griffin is a Good pickup, I watched him in the 2012 Combine, quick for a Big Guy and Strong, very good at getting down field in front of the Runningback could be a good pulling Guard, but needs to work on his lateral movement down the line, and his pass blocking not the greatest, as far as keeping defenders from knocking the ball down, but like him A LOT compared to what we have NOW..

***Spears is a Big Linebacker @ 6' 4" 234lbs. not much on him other than what browns and colts websites are giving... we will just have to see...

***Asante was drafted by the Browns and then cut and went to Bucs and then cut again, hmmmm a 6' 0" 210 lbs. Safety out of Nebraska in 2010 Big 12 Honors considered Strong against the Run but weak as a Pass Coverage Safety.. he has nice size as a Strong Safety but wondering if he can develop into an all around player would be nice to see Chuck make him into another Ed Reed... All I can tell is Colts are moving players up on all rosters to take the places of injured players and these players are just going to be filling open positions on the practice squad... Griffin has the only Real shot at being a Starter or Back up but with the way the Offensive Line has played this year, the cheerleaders could have Sacked Andrew, so Griffin has a Very Good chance..

I'm pretty sure Grigson isn't the only GM signing players to future/reserve contracts this week.

I don't know much about any of these players, but they're probably all long shots for the final roster next year.

    • 1970 and 2006. Colts were SB champs, NFL Network did these two years.  My two favorite years as a lifetime Colts fan. A lot of players and coaches to be proud of. I know to most, they don't belong together but I can't help it: both were my Colts, both wore the horseshoe. Unitas, Jones, Peyton and Luck. Moore, Mitchell, Dickey, James and Gore. John Mackey and Dallas Clark. The list goes on. To be a fan for all these years has been rewarding and frustrating. But I'm glad to have been a Colts fan and look forward to possibility seeing a team that ranks up there with some of the best that has ever worn the horseshoe. It may take a little time but I'm hopeful! C-O-L-T-S Colts!!!!
    • The mugshot will be a meme sensation!
    • Yep. We are going backwards and PG saw that and wants out. This teams has big contracts wrapped up in two aging guys Al and Monta and they are awful for this team. By the time you re-sign Teague to his new more expensive contract and depending on what you do with CJ who will be up for a bigger contract you really don't have much room to add anyone....even a shooter like Riddick might not be affordable. Its almost impossible to compete with the Cavs who are like 30 million over the cap when you have an owner like Simon and when you have to over-pay mediocre talent just to come play with you. I do think this team under-achieved but I'm not going to pretend its even close to contending. We are a long ways off from that and I'm sure PG realizes that....and its going to be very tough to convince him we can help him win it all and we will finally pair him with another superstar when we bring in Monta Ellis and say there you go Paul...there's your star upgrade...go compete. I'm sure he believes if he is in LA it will be easier to convince free agents to come sign and win something with him....after all...nowadays it takes 3 or 4 stars to compete with the Cavs and Warriors.
    • I personally thought his first game against Tennessee was his best of the season and top 5 maybe top 3 of his career. I went down to watch that game in person. Sweet seats in the lower bowl.    Luck  came out blazing. It was clear from the beginning there was an emphasis on getting the ball out quickly. And boy did he ever. 3 step drops. 5 step drops. Ball coming out on time. Throwing to spots and hitting receivers as soon as they came out of their breaks.  Back should fades...   Near perfection. Plus I think Doyle dropped a TD just before halftime or he may have flirted with a perfect rating.  Was well worth the trip down to see Luck put on a clinic...
    • If we are close to anything, its close to not being a playoff team. We almost weren't this year.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
