Excited to see this game, hopefully a good one. I think the Colts easily should be 3-1 this season, Pep kind of cost us that one vs Philly......Colts also had the chance to win vs Denver, I personally feel pretty good about the team this year. If they can just play a whole game and not worry about changing there game plan like the Philly game(running the ball to waste the clock). Lots of team do that also, that is what almost gave us the Denver game. You still need first downs, if you get th
I hope the Colts come out firing, the run first offense has seemed to always put us in a hole, the comeback wins are when the coaching staff let Luck loose. I still believe in our run game but if we keep putting T-Rich/Bradshaw in predictable formations defenses are gonna eat them alive.....more play action, and running from the gun. Colts have had some success in the no huddle also. Pass first then run seems to work better in recent years, let's actually play/control the whole game from star
Free safety Kurt Coleman was rumored to have visited the Colts Friday. Don't know much about him except for he has some ugly hits on people. He hit Collie in 2010 and he left on the stretcher and when he played for Ohio State he tackled Tyson Gentry and he became paralyzed.......Coleman almost quit football until Gentry apparently forgave him. Sounds like a physical tackler but not sure about this one.
Major Wright is only 25 yrs old and has some upside. He has had ample amount of success in his 4 years 3 years starting. I know there are some concerns about him against the run but when you have a Thumper like Landry, you may want more of a ball hawking free safety. He will be on the cheap compared to other free agents and has some YOUNG veteran experience.
Major Wright 54 games played he has 253 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 9 interceptions, and a pick 6 every year for
Colts with large amounts of cap space, still have not address the center position. Alex Mack may be a long shot, but we still need a quality veteran. We cannot expect the line to be improved with Costa who played in 3 games last year, and Holmes who is a 4th rounder with 3 games experience. That is not really surrounding Luck who every team in the NFL would love to have, save for a few teams, with much talent. I would love to see what Luck could do with more time in the pocket, with our rece
I heard Colts are still trying to steal Alex Mack away from Cleveland. Word is they are putting an offer together that Cleveland can't or won't try to compete with. Could be smoke but some sources are saying it is very real possibility. Khaled Holmes could slide to guard he played there before with USC....Mack will be VERY expensive....especially if Cleveland won't compete, they have a ton of cap space. Free Agency Frenzy is filled with rumors not sure about this one.
I like the moves Grigs has made so far, I was a bit surprised that Vontae got that much guaranteed but then I seen Talib's contract last night. Now Vontae's looks really good. Here is a list of some positions that will be filled via Free Agency, and who I think we should take a look at.
Center- Evan Dietrich-Smith, Brian De La Puente, Ryan Wendall, Jonathan Goodwin
Goodwin would be a temporary 2 year starter as we draft or groom a player. The other players would be a direct replacement for
Vontae Davis is asking for a contract bigger than Brent Grimes.....not surprising he is younger. I never like when players numbers are better in a contract year. He is a quality corner and can tackle, but QB's had a 98.0 QB rating when throwing his way. He had a excellent game against Denver where he got the national media pumping him up, he did play very well. I am not on the pay the man train, there is a stock pile of quality CB's in free agency. If you drop Toler you can afford to get 2
James Jones told media today that he would like to come back to Green Bay, but would also like to play for Indy or San Diego. He is 29 yrs old and a pretty decent receiver, should the Colts be interested? I myself am not sure......He caught 59 passes last year out of 93 targets with the talented discount double check guy throwing to him, much better than DHB..... but is he worth the money he may seeking?
Center------Evan Deitrich-Smith 27 yrs old is a must-----we could get him for Satele $.... Drop him take 4 mill left a year and pay this MAN! PFF ranks him a +14 and Alex Mack a +17
Safety------Major Wright 25 yrs showed play making abilities with the Bears 80 tackles 2 int 1 pick 6 and 2 forced fumbles.....could be a nice bargain
ILB----------I think the Colts may sign D'Qwell Jackson..... Arthur Moats will be a solid addition less $
CB----------Davis may be to rich for Colts blood....never
Colts sign CFL's 2011 #1 overall pick Henoc Muamba and .....He is a versatile linbacker that has good character on and off the field and has received 2013 good guy award and Muamba perfect 10 program for underprivileged kids also a (ALL STAR). Nick named AO for (All Over) and hopefully is a great addition to the defense and can have same success as Jerrell Freeman (former CFL)....I like this signing!!!! Go Colts
Analysts say...........Letting go of Toler and Satele frees up nearly 9 million in cap space (approx 34 mill available before cuts).....Satele ranked as the 10th highest paid center (terrible for the money) and Toler who is decent is a overpaid average DB with injury history that can be easily replaced with the free agents available this year. They will be let go, who will replace them????? Lets go GRIGS!
I like a lot of moves Grigs has made but I had a feeling that this one would be up in the air.....Sheppard was sub par and Hughes had 10 sacks 2 forced fumbles and 46 tackles. Next year our d line could use some help and we find ourselves looking free agency/draft and we had that guy earlier this season. I hope we make the right moves this off season and look forward to next year. Orakpo everybody wants but will be to costly for us because we have a to many holes to fill......I would be more
Colts sign Dion Branch and put Fili Moala and Greg Toler on IR.....Let me say, Toler could be let go next year due to his career being injury prone and I think he blew the coverage on the Donnie Avery play.....He really has some talent but can't stay on the field and that is a frequent problem of Colts lately....Moala is a first rounder that never amounted to much and he is what he is (played all 16 games this year though)....He will be a Colt next year just for continuity and a cheap price tag.
Colts fans still complaining about the T-Rich trade need to get over it, we just had one of the greatest comebacks ever!!!!!! Donald Brown fumbled too!!!!! Oh and he was a 1st rounder also and nearly 27 yrs old who also had a rough start and NEVER had to switch teams mid season.....T-Rich has sputtered running the ball but another year and he will improve he is only 23 yrs old.....He is quite productive this year from a yards from scrimmage stand point though.....Here is a few players he has m
I don't know about everyone else, but I think that TY, DaRick, Fleener and Whalen provide Luck with more weapons than any other line-up we have thrown out there.....(without Wayne). I would like to see them come out firing, I was also impressed with how they involved T-Rich in the passing game in which he did great at. The running game will come easier I think once defenses are of balance, we have been running better in the second half of most games because of the play calling. I hope the coa
DaRick seems like a big target and I hope he can continue to grow with Luck......Once again we started the game looking like a high school football team, Pep is a terrible OC..... to be a offensive coordinator he must actually coordinate some offense. T-rich looked a little better and I did like the screen passes at the END of the game.....Do we ever run a draw play or a toss?????? It seems like we run up the middle every time and it would be nice to see a stretch run of somesort, I was really
Greg Toler has been out for nearly 5 weeks, Jay Cutler returned from a groin injury in 2....We never was informed of the severity of the injury..... Every day for last month I see him on the injury report....If he is unable to go then replace him, he is taking up a roster spot. I would hate to see him wait all this time, only unable to play. I know he is not the best corner in the league, but our pass defense has suffered since his absence....
Can we come out of the gate firing for once this year, it would be nice to play with a lead for once. I love the comeback nail biting games, but I also would love to see this offense attack and never let up. I know we are missing players, that should not be an excuse!!!! The stats for the first half vs. the second half of games this season is EXTREMELY lopsided......Like last game down multiple scores to comeback and win, we had the same players in the first half of the game as we did in the
Colts sign former Florida Gator and Pittsburgh Steeler running back Chris Rainey.....He has had off the field issues and was out of the NFL for 11 months, Colts have talked to him and apparently feel comfortable with giving him another chance. He is a pretty talented kid that can and will do some kick returning in David Reeds place, as well as take a few snaps for Brown and T-Rich.....once he has some practice with the team.....I LOVE the signing of low risk high ceiling players (LOW COST also)
The Colts less than impressive guard now has a broken thumb to deal with, he is wearing a splint or cast and is supposedly day to day.....Our line needs all the help we can get, Linkenbach will start in his place if he can't go Thursday, which may or may not be a bad thing?
I picture the Colts @ 10-6.....Injuries and teams starting to exploit our weaknesses are gonna make it tough to win these games also, I wish we can 7-0 but that's not gonna happen. Just as long as the game actually looks like a game and not the one from yesterday I am fine with 10-6. This team has came through adversity before so I am not counting them out, but they would need a nice run to go anywhere in the playoffs.
