Some very unsexy free agent signings but I think I know what Ballard is doing. Thanks to Ryan Grigson the Colts have so many holes on their team especially on defense you just can't fill them all through the draft. But Ballard is someone who believes you build a successful team through the draft and not via free agency so he brings in some short term fillers for cheap money so we can get a team on the field. We probably need 2-3 drafts to get something going. Well, thank you Grigson!

I don't think short term fillers is what Ballard has in mind. The players he has brought in are pretty much young veterans who can fill depth needs and could very well become starters or at least rotational players.

One of the main problems we have had is the drop off talent levels between our starters to those depth or rotational players. Those depth and rotational players can be the difference in winning and losing games.

Reading about how Spence is good in coverage, and not great against the run, I hope the coaches realize this and play him accordingly.

Seems like a fairly good signing.  1 year 3 M is low risk to the team.  

 

I find it funny how many people say they believe in building through the draft but get PO'ed when the GM doesn't sign a star player or several star players every year.

Not sure, but I'll bet the owner is pretty pleased with the way the GM is managing his money.

Evidently he must be better than what we currently have.... so good luck.

He is a great defender on outside runs, as he can effortlessly run down the ACC's fastest players. He is stellar in coverage, can blanket tight ends and tackle from various angles. He makes quick decisions and executes on them.

 

 

I'm sold.  We couldn't cover even the worst of TE's last season so if this is even partially true, I'm happy with the signing.

    • This info came out this week.     This is the first chance I've had to post it as I do every year.         Here is the actual roster with updated weights.       I printed out a roster after the draft and have now made notes about how much weight has been either lost or gained by our players.   http://www.colts.com/team/roster.html   I'm also going to write it up here....    the roster is for you to use as a cross reference...   Hope you enjoy!                 Aiken                  216      +1 Alie-Cox             267      +7 Anderson           301      +1 Ayers                 247      -8 Banner              358       -2 Basham             266      +4 Binford               185 Blackmon          185   Bond                 299       -3 Bostic               245   Boyd                 293      -17 Bray                  183      -3 Briggs                230 Brown                196 Butler                 192      +4 Castanzo            311 Clark                  311      -8 Cooper              311      +5 Crossan            203      +1 Daniels             246       -1 Davis                207 ]Dorsett            185 Doyle                262      -5 Edwards           271      -4 Farley               209       -1 Ferguson         205       +5 Geathers         220 George            234   Good               345     -10 G ore               212      -5 Graham          208 Green             211      +6 Haeg              305      +1 Hairston         195      +2 Hankins         325      +5 Hennessy      246 HIghtower     200 HIlton            178 Hooker          212      +7 Howard         214      -7 Hunt              298     +3 Jackson        234     +4 Jeter             251 Kelly             309 Langford      299      -6 Locke           208      +12 Luck             240 Mack           210        -3 McGill         299       -11 Melvin         196       +3 Mewhort      305       -7 Milton          196       +6 Mingo          239       -1 Mitchell        192       +9 Moncrief      216       -6 Morris         186        -2 Morrison      241      +6 Morris          219       +1 Mount         253        +4 Muir            309    Natson       153        -6 Parry          317       +7 Pope          205  Powell        211  Redmond   300       +5 Rhodes      238      -4 Ridgewawy 318     +1     Rogers        184     +4 Sanchez      195 Schwenke    310     -5 Sheard         265 Sickels         252     -9 Simon          250     -10 Smith           197     -8 Spence        231 Stewart        333     -14 Swoope       258     +1 Thomas       282    -10 Tolzien        215     +2 Ugokwe      315     -6 Vinatieri      212     +6 vujonvich    300 Walker        242     +7 Walker        216 Wlliams      260     +13 Wilson        206      -7 Woods       330      +23 Wylie          309   Griffey        209 Michael      220  
    • I love the talent in their def but I think luck had Wades number lol he's eaten up his defense  in wins/losses
    • A punch to the gut was how it was said to be by Pritchard. Bird sure left Pritchard a total mess. None of this is surprising to me about how the NBA direction is going. None of this is ever going to change as long as there is not a hard cap and the NBA gets paid for super stars getting put on the same teams. This started years ago with the Celtics. They always had the best teams money could buy and then when the cap come in they invented what is called the Larry Bird exception. Then the NBA seen the chance to cash in by letting teams pay them for going over the cap. Then the owners were getting paid by high dollar TV deals and couldn't care less about putting winners on the court as long as they were making money. Now the NBA is made popular by fans who really are not interested in watching basketball played in it's original form. All they want now is highlight dunks and three pointers. Defense has been lost forever right along with traditional basketball. Sad for those who remember the real basketball.
    • Fact is Pagano went 8-8 without Luck after using 5 different QBs with one of them coming right off the street. But it's things like this that gets overlooked by those who choose to. Moral superiority?? You have to be joking. That's even taking it over the top and is getting to the point of pure unaltered childishness.
    •     Sounds like we are seriously considering Lance Stephenson at starting point guard if Jeff Teague's     price is to high..   ..I know he's motivated to play hard and well but that's not something I'd be considering
