  1. Colts O-line needs help

      IMO it was OK, when both Shipley and Holmes were in in the 2nd half. Luck had days to throw then.

      I agree with HCF.

  2. I agree, a solid O-line is a must have for this off season. Seems like Colts every year are having a O-line carousel. You lose continuity switching players that often through the season, nice to see guys step up but great teams have a solid line that start every week together. Wayne has a undisclosed torn triceps injury that no one has talked about, with a banged up elbow and a knee surgery....I think OLD boy could use a week off to get him healthy for playoffs, good luck getting him off the field though. Either way he will step up in the playoffs....REGGIE!
  3. Gordy from what I heard had a rough day.....(blacked out in my area, Lake County... thanks Dish...had to watch scoring plays on Redzone) anyways I think colts have nearly 4 mill in cap space still....looking at Tolers injury history and Davis being banged up I think it would be a solid pick up for the rest of the year and playoffs. Butler looks great sometimes and gets burned at times too! Colts rely on corners alot so we need to be healthy in that area. O-line may need help after today also.
  4. 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 them you waste MORE clock. I realize it you don't want to make a mistake with picks or incomplete passes, but most comeback wins happen when a team starts playing one dimensional (RUNNING the clock mode). I hope they attack and keep attacking and never look back, Ravens are a quality team so a good win will start getting this team the respect it deserves. I would also like to see a few HB tosses of so our run game is less predictable, I believe Sergio Brown is a UPGRADE over Landry..... Brown has more speed, height and ball hawking ability than him and should prove his worthy as a nfl starter. Freeman should be back as well so that will help, Vontae on Smith Sr, Toler on Smith Jr.......Keep the our offense on the field and lets win this game! GO COLTS!!!!!
  5. 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 start to finish. GO COLTS!!!!
  6. I just read that he does not get any $, since he retired. So NBD, hopefully address this issue with a solid veteran for a 2 year deal. Draft another, and keep grooming Holmes and player to be named.
  7. He also got paid $450,000 guaranteed money...... I did not like the signing when it happened, now I really hate the signing. $500,000 cap hit for a player not on the roster.
  8. Colts will be looking for another center, as Costa thought it was his best interest to retire. Hopefully we can find a actual center this time.
  9. He had the Redskins, Giants, Falcons, Bucs and obviously the Bears looking at him. Saints only had 2.7 mill of cap space and had to free some up $ and supposedly they felt like they had depth there. Again I am not saying la Peunte is the best....Costa is just unproven, just like RJF, Walden, Toler, Landry (all of which have underperformed for the money)...those are the signings that drive me nuts, when Grigs has a check book and a hole to fill. Grigs has made some GREAT signings in 2 years and I love a lot of them, but some make you scratch your head. You win some and lose some.
  10. I realize la Puente may be somewhat overated, but he has much more experience and SUCCESS. Costa has only started 20 games in 4 seasons, so he may have an upside. I jam just a little frustrated with not making the center position the first hole to fill. Luck has been getting to much pressure, and I would have a little more talent surrounding him that's all. la Puente.....Pro Football focus rating.....+6.1(2013) +23.0 (2012) +6.1 (2011).....also the line won 2 Madden Most valuable Protectors Awards in 3 years. started 32 games the last 2 years. Costa.....(26 games his whole career) who does not even have a positive rating.....has not had a starting job since 2011....some snaps in 2012..... and just 1 in 2013. I am curious to why he even deserves more than 1 year deal (let alone MORE money than la Puente). I would have signed Nicks to a 2 year deal over a guy that has not proven anything accept he can't even keep Brooke Hogan from pushing him backwards....lol Does Grigs have BEER GOGGLES on when he looks at some of these players? In the end I am just a Colts fan and I hope he is a diamond in the rough. Go Colts!!!!!!!
  11. Bears sign top 5 ranked (free agent) center for $750,000 a year and we sign Phil Costa to a 2 year $2.7 million contract worth up $3.5 million in incentives. Why do we overpay?
  12. 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.
  13. Brooks is free safety expected to go 2-3 and Loston is a strong safety expected to go in the 4. I like either if they are still around, look out for Ed Reynolds. Pep has Stanford ties and if he is the BPA at the position they may go for him.....He is ranked 4th among free safeties available.
  14. Brown did have good numbers, but if he is a feature back he will not be as effective...... He formations and style of running were different than T-Richs, lets not forget his previous years.........When Brown was running there was more chance of passing.
  15. we need a good veteran safety.....Clemons or Major Wright may cost less both are quality starters, sign them to 2 years guaranteed and get a safety in the next 2 drafts. 2016 we will have to pay the 2012 class some $......Still think we need a center, Holmes needs to move to guard, we need to find another center to compete with, Goodwin, Wendall, etc...same thing sign to 2 years guaranteed so we can address this issue in the next couple years, or Holmes may be the center of the future.
  16. Wright did start some games his first year......
  17. 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 the last 3 years. Chris Clemons 28 yrs supposedly best safety left available played 18 more games with 72, he has 207 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, 0 fumble recoveries, 4 interceptions, 0 touchdowns.....he does have a 1.5 sacks though.... Love to have Major Wright on a small deal, but I think we are in Howell/draft mode
  18. 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 receiving corps that could be very dangerous. Grigs get a real quality center please, lets not try and save a few bucks when comes to Lucks livelihood.
  19. He was the only player in the top #66 in yards from scrimmage, that had to play for 2 teams. The Kid can play and deserves another chance in my book.
  20. T rich's contract's guaranteed money was paid by Cleveland.....most of it....his cap hit is ranked #23 of ALL RB's....His yards from scrimmage is ranked #43 out of EVERYBODY in the NFL....including Tight Ends, Wide Receivers, Returners etc......even above Sproles......People need to quit hating and Grigs needs to get a real POWER running O line.
  21. Richardson is staying and will be better this year......Cleveland paid a HUGE chunk of his guaranteed money from his rookie contract and the Colts have him under control for 2 more years.....his cap hit is ranked #23 of all running backs which is not bad. I really see him being a big part of our offense this year.
  22. They do need a upgrade......Brian De La Puente, Ryan Wendell, or short term Johnathan Goodwin, draft another and groom Khaled Holmes for a couple years, because Costa is NOT the answer. Sick of seeing Luck run for is life back there.......Grigs needs to do the right thing and protect the most important player on our team......He goes down and every other player we signed is just a waste of money!
  23. Wow! Maybe you should not be so literal. I realize he cannot be stolen from them and they can match any offer (transition tag). If you read the post, I also said that it would take a deal that the Browns would not want to match, which would be a crazy offer! I also talked about it possibly being smoke, and that free agency filled with rumors, I NEVER said it would be a smart move by the Colts. If all you do is go around and correct peoples posts then maybe you should actually read them before you respond. I thought us Colts fans were more intelligent than that, but I guess there is one of YOU in every bunch. My "sources" say your an *......
