  1. I lke both Kruger and Avril and have "lobbied" for both of them on here in the past, but after the combine and seeing the linebackers and ends in there, i just dont see spending the money on Kruger or Avril. Theyre good IMO but there is just so much better talent in the later rds of the draft and with a coach like Pagano and Manusky, they can make a playmaker out of anybody it seems and we should skip both Kruger and Avril and (reluctantly) stick with Hughes in his last year and load up on talent in the draft. because i wonder really, if these guys are any better than Hughes. We obviously kno
  2. I Know !!! and i cant wait! we've never been this excited for free agency before because we've never had any money.Its crazy because when i watched the combine (religiously) ( i really have no idea how to spell that word), but IMO with the safeties and linebackers, the 3rd and 4th rd rated players were every bit as good as the 1st rounders. i really want to use our #1 on Rhodes or Hunt, but i wouldnt be worried at all if they decide to trade down.
  3. dude yer funny:) IMO stanton was the best QB on the Jets roster and hes the one they chose to get rid of. Rex Ryan is an * and its obvious any time you watch a Jets game.
  4. I like Avril and i like kruger but is the money theyre asking worth it when the draft is so full of the same type of players? take Jamie collins for instance, 6'3 and 250 and broad jumped over 11 feet and ran a 4.6 40. Thats a freak of nature.
  5. man 11 mil is way too much for a person that plays best in his contract year.
  6. Makes you wonder if Lions fans or Dolphins fans or Jaguar fans will ever have decade like we had. Now that we've lived it and done it, every football fan deserves to feel this way about their team and about Football. What an awesome game.
  7. Not to mention, i watched the 2006 AFC game the other day on NFL Classics and darn near cried. Seeing Dungy pacing the sidelines and Peyton commanding his NFL Premier offense, with Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne together and seeing Freeney and Mathis staying focused on the sidelines.....seeing Bob Sanders patrolling the backfield......man, Indianapolis Colts 2006 was a team for the record books.
  8. Hey i like your choices, and its so cool that we have so many great moments to choose from, but i would have to say the final interception of Tom Brady in AFC Championship 2007 by Marlin Jackson. It was the idea of slaying our Arch-Nemisis. And it was at home in the RCA Dome. Patriots were infamous in last second comeback drives and this was no different. The world was watching, winner goes to the Superbowl and New England has spoiled our hopes for years. And not only was it Peytons moment to shine in his dominance over Tom Brady, but it was the Colts Franchise moment to finally "Take The Hill
  9. ...but it is crazy how someone so good in College can turn out being nothing in the NFL.
  10. Man, we have a great WR core! Palmer brings toughness, and with his speed and quickness i would love to see him in the slot. Brazill was the big name on his college team, so he brings alot of mental focus and leadership and he knows what its like to be a teams #1 wideout in desperate situations, he's a bigger asset than he appears. and whalen, was playing injured most of his last year as Lucks #1 reciever. And none of this even mentions what Avery and Hilton bring to the table, let alone, future Hall-of-Famer Reggie Wayne. I mean, Luck couldnt be in a better position to start a brilliant caree
  11. And keep this in mind too, guys, we have Luck, AND his O.C from stanford, and if i remember right, Stanford kicked butt and took names with one of the WORST recieving cores in College Football. Put it this way, and props to Whalen, Griff Whalen was their top wide reciever...playing injured most of the year. Now, that QB, that WR, that O.C. is on the Colts offense.....AND their top TE!!!! so....how much do you really want to spend on a big name WR in F/A?!!!! Because whatever we spend on that WR, just means less money (or talent) on a glaring need that we REALLY should've focused on.... instead
  12. T.Y. will take over for Reggie. hes not as fast as Avery and a burner is always needed on the field. So Avery will stay where he's at and T.Y willtake over for Wayne and Whalen or Palmer willmove into the slot. I would trust Palmer alot more than Whalen though because Palmer is alot bigger, alot more physical, more experience, and definantly faster and quicker. Brazill works with Avery as downfield options.
  13. Ok. lets invite a little common sense here. We have glaring needs on our offensive line, defensive line, linebacking core, and secondary. Now, we have 47 mil in Cap, right? So, seeing how much talent costs in the NFL.....was our WR core so bad last year( 11-5!!!) that we need to spend on an expensive throw-away from another team when we dont REALLY need it, and hope a cheap "need" falls into place where we REALLY need it? i mean, whats the logic in going for someone and paying someone who is no better than the best we have(Wayne), when we already have plenty of talent that we can re-sign and m
  14. 1. Jake Long 2. Louis Vasquez 3.Mike Jenkins Re-sign Avery and Butler.
  15. Lol remember the days of AJ Green and Jerome Paython and Aaron Bailey? Its good to remember, but thank God they're gone.
  16. Look, Fellas, to say that Luck will be better next year is the same as saying Avery will, too. Last year was Avery's rookie year all over again. Brand new team, new playbook for everybody including the Quarterback, new team mates, Rookie QB, sharing playing-time with a young phenom like T.Y., a one year contract, and a whole lot to prove all over again. He did great. Imagine what he will be like next year after a year like this one? Now that every one knows each other, and is more in-tune with each other? I hope they re-sign him and i cant wait to see him play next year.
  17. Imagine being Miami. they look at Avery different than we do. and the st.louis rams. They see a guy that played a solid year as a #2. because, really, how much does a #2 really account for each year? 700+ yds on 60+ catches and multiple TD's and game winning catches is a darn good addition to your resume. Seriously, there are several teams waiting for Avery to hit F/A. He would be a #1 in St louis. And Miami. And for us? well, no one catches like Reggie, but reggie cant run like Avery either. luck and Wayne just clicked from the beginning. Thats the power of a good veteran. And if you remembe
  18. Colts Starting Lineup: QB Luck RB Ballard, Brown, WR Wayne, Avery, Hilton TE Allen, Fleener OL Long, Reitz, Shipley, Vasquez, Costanzo ILB Angerer, Freeman OLB Mathis, Hughes, Collins, Lemonier DE Redding, Moala, Hunt NT Chapman, Williams SS Cyprien, Thomas FS Bethea, Armstrong CB Davis, Jenkins, Butler, Vaughn Draft: 1st DE Margus Hunt 2nd(from i dont know where) SS Johnathon Cyprien 3rd OLB Jamie Collins 3rd OLB Corey Lemonier 4th SS Shawn Williams 5th FS Ray Ray Armstrong 5th DT Brandon Williams F/A: Jake Long, Mike Jenkins, Vasquez,
  19. the Starting line is going to be as follows I hear its very spacious.
  20. Theres no way i would let Avery walk. He dropped 12 catchable passes last year out of 78? This was his first real contribution role hes played in since a major injury got him booted from Rams. Played sparingly in Tenessee but overall i thought he did great considering the circumstances. Man, proving yourself on a one year contract with a team the caliber as the Colts had to be nerve wracking, every game, especially coming off the huge dissapointments from his injury that cost him, really, 2 years of his carreer. His Catching ability will become solid with time and Andrew Luck. His route runnin
  21. No to Carry Williams. NOPE. and NO to Krueger too. seroiusly, its like our guy Hughes, playing mediocre then on his contract year, becoming a phenom. its not him, its his desire to sit on a bigger contract. I like Avril but he will be asking for too much money. WAY to much! I think we should focus on OL in F/A. This years draft is great on three positions. OL, OLB, and DB. IMO we should take care of our OL issues in F/A (Long and Vasquez) and concentrate on draft picks and get some good picks at DB (Rhodes, Shamarko?, shawn williams, Baccari Rambo, Cyprien, Ray Ray Armstrong, Amerson) and OLB
  22. WHY?! i mean, really?! look, friend, remember the last great cornerback that we had........yeah, thats what im saying. now can you think of the last cornerback that we drafted in the first round? It seems with cornerbacks, you get what you pay for. Look at Vontae. man is he worth it. Remember Marlin Jackson, before injuries sidelined his carreer? I would not be dissapointed at all if we got Rhodes. Banks isnt near as Physical as Rhodes. If we dont get Rhodes, i would go for Hunt...the Eastern Block.
  23. No way. i was hoping he wouldnt do so well at the combine but he did. I cant see us trading up to get him either. Sure wish he did fall though. Rhodes and Davis would be a fearful tandem for years to come. but we can only dream.
  24. Antoine Cason would be about the same as picking up Mike Jenkins. I'd be extremely happy with either of them to pair with Vontae. I've been saying the benefits of Avril a long time now. I read somewhere that he played some LB in college. Dont know how much but hes definantly real quick east and west. Avril and Mathis would be an awesome tandem to have.
