A lot of injuries in his career.  Expect that to improve as he gets older?

He is still only 26, and had a great year. It's a concern, but the improvements and physical profile are a nice prospect for the Colts.

One good year plus injury concerns.  This is what you avoid spending big money on in free agency.

Supposedly he's the one that got P-Rob last year, apparently meeting with Chuck is what sealed the deal.

Signing Robinson was no great thing.... he was signed to be an outside CB and he sucks at that... it was a dumb signing so yea that probabaly was all Pagano

Teams can contact players agents (not the actual players, though) and even agree to contracts and terms in principal, but they cannot put pen to paper and make it official until After Thursday Mar. 9th,  4:00 pm EST when the new NFL season officially begins.

DeMarcus Ware is interested in finishing his career with Dallas.

 

..is Dwight Freeney interested in finishing his career in Indy?

Yes, one great year, 11 sacks.  Until then I think he started 16 games in the previous four years and had a total of 11.5 sacks.  

 

I'm not trying to put him down, he may have finally hit the potential they saw in him. I just think it's risky to sign a guy who's known to be injury prone.

I know I told this joke before and it may have gotten lame...

 

What about signing Mario Williams, drafting Tyus Bowser, and getting Jonathan Luigs out of retirement? :)

No one's saying it was a brilliant signing, but he had other teams trying to sign him & he chose the Colts, and was quoted as saying Pagano was a big reason why. Not sure if that'll be enough to sign a guy like Hightower or Poe, but if one of those guys meets with Chuck, I like our chances.

That was because his former DC in SD was Pagano's brother, and the scheme and terminology was very similar......  not necessarily that Pagano was some excellent recruiter

No, I agree.  I really liked what he did last year.  Some people are saying it had a lot to do with the players around him and how teams had to gameplan for them first.  I haven't looked at any of his games to see how he got all those sacks.

 

My concern, as with all guys who've had injuries in the past, is how many games is he going to be on the field.

On the Colts front I've seen us linked to Paul Worrilow, Jack Spencer, DJ Fluker, and Chris Baker...no BIG names yet

 

I'd love Baker.

I would rather trade back as opposed to trading up. 

 

If we trade up for anyone, I hope it is Solomon Thomas if he falls. Ultimately, there is too much talent in this draft to trade up.

I think Solomon Thomas will probably wind up with the Jags.  I could totally see him playing in that scheme.

You never trade up for a running back, especially in this class.

If they feel the guy is talented enough I wouldn't be upset. It would also help on both sides of the football. Whatever this team decides to do I'm for it.

Class not as good as you think. Only about 5 are starters. Then you have back-ups left.

Spending a single first round pick on a RB is against my religion....spending what it would cost to move up into the top 10 of the first round (multiple first round picks) for a RB is just....ok I've always said that no one single decision is worth being fired over but this would be the exception.  If Ballard traded UP into the top 10 of the draft, giving up who knows how many draft picks to do so, only to select a RB then yes, I would immediately want him to be fired.  Especially when we're not 100% sure that the OL is set.

I agree it's overrated, but 5 starters out of one draft class is still a lot, especially seeing as about 7 others have the potential to start later down the line.

You might not trade up in the first round,  but teams will trade up to get the running back they love.

 

Teams won't take an approach that all RB's are roughly the same.    They fall in love with certain guys and make moves to get the ones they want.

plus it's one of those things to where if you can get game breaker,  you take it, no matter the position(unless you already have a game breaker at the same position.)

I don't think any of the backs this year are equal to Zeke's level, so no, I Wouldn't. trade up.

But for a RB like Zeke or a AP. yeah I WOULD,

We fired Grigson because he probably would have took a RB. We're building a damn defense. Common sense and being a Colts fan should tell you that.

Class is very good. You're in the minority.

I don't even know if these backs would go before Derick Henry. And he was a 2nd rounder.  They are definitely not on Zekes level.

There will be atleast 5 starters from the 2nd round alone.

    • I played against him in High School. He was there for North Harford's second year of football. Pretty smart. I tackled him- he jerked his head and laid his face mask on my hand, and I got a face mask penalty!!!!
    • Justin Snow was a great long snapper. Any 11 year Colt player deserves some kudos.
    •   I see your point there. The Colts were a joke in Indy before Dickerson, known solely as the team that John Elway refused to play for.    I didn't know that about Faulk in 1995. Steve DeBerg played half of a season starting QB with a pin holding his finger together and was still throwing passes. Strange of Faulk to sit out, the Colts probably would've made the SB in that year. They were on a hell of a run late in the season. Harbaugh was in the MVP conversation with Favre and Emmitt Smith that year with his TD/INT ratio and the streak he was having of wins. 
    • Not a bad start, lots of 3's!!! HAAS NEEDS TO USE HIS SIZE TO HIS ADVANTAGE, HULK SMAAAAAAAASH!!!!!
    •   No, I don't think it is fair to say Luck has carried the Colts more.  Andrew was drafted #1 overall by a perennial playoff team hat had Peyton Manning as the QB.  Stafford was drafted #1 overall to guide a Lions team that went 0 - 16.  He was 2-8 in games he started in his rookie year, and threw a lot of picks learning.  But he also became the youngest QB to toss 5 TD passes in a game, doing so almost a full year younger than Dan Marino was when he threw 5.   The more I look, the more I see similarities, not differences. As far as seasons, if their 11 - 5 2014 season is what you refer too, I feel any team trying to get wins past 11 is very difficult... for P. Manning, T. Brady, D. Brees, A. Luck, etc..   Also, Megatron was hurt some that season.  But the biggest issue Stafford might have had was the new philosophy of Joe Lombardi at OC.  Stafford seems to gel much better under Jim Bob Cooter..  All of these things play into to it,  So no, I cannot say A. Luck under J. Lombardi scheme at Detroit would have collected more than 11 wins in 2014.    Comps-   http://football-players.pointafter.com/compare/12698-19572/Andrew-Luck-vs-Matthew-Stafford   I still give my QB the edge, maybe homerism.  Maybe ceiling height, maybe intangibles... don't know, but to me they are close with A.Luck having an edge.
