  1. I was wondering how effective TE coach Jason Michaels was & if the Colts might let him go after the season. Now he's gone anyway. Thou they could have told him he wouldn't be retained. I don't know. I just think the TE group kind of under performed this season. Not sure if it was coaching, the system or the players weren't very good, but I thought they didn't get enough receptions out of MAC or Burton. Per FFToday.com rankings Burton was ranked #24; MAC #27 & Doyal #35. Based on targets, receptions & yards. No blocking input. I hope they can ad
  2. Agree, the playoffs usually have the better QB's. The only way to keep them somewhat in check is a pass rush. No sacks this last game. Also, the blitze's don't seem very sucessful either. Means your offense has to play well & out score the other team. I hope Ballard use's free agency this off season for pass rush help as well as the draft. Needs: - OT; Pass rushers; WR; CB; Cover LB; TE
  3. I agree with the opinions the front office must not think this team has much chance to win the super bowl. Hence the other teams were asking for too much in trade compensation. I also agree the playoffs would be a confidence buider for this team, for next season. Draft picks; free agency; coaching staff & front office personal are the blocks to build a team. The better those team building blocks perform the more sucessfull the team. I too wish Ballard used free agents & trades a bit more, but if I remember correctly there's a rule that kicks i
  4. I wonder if they'll try & move T.J. Green to corner? He has 4.35 speed. Can he learn to cover? Corner is a more generally thought to be a more important position than safety. So I was thinking go CB in round 1. But I guess the thinking is Hooker is the more higher rated player. Ok, but in the middle of round two the top at least 8 CB's will be off the board. So whoever you get is going to be far from the best CB's from this draft. Hope this all works. Peace
  5. Dang, I thought CB was a bigger need. We got nothing beyond V. Davis at corner. The 2nd starting corner could have been addressed. D. Butler or T.J. Green could have competed for that FS type position. I know they'll draft a corner or two in later rounds but the really good guys will be gone. Hope this works out. Peace
  6. The Colts should now let some other guys play to see what they can do. Cut a few of these guys & IR (if slightly hurt) the rest - Lance Lewis; Joe Reitz; D. Allen or Fleener; Frank Gore; A. Johnson or Griff Whalen; M.Hasselbeck; G. Toler; Colt Anderson; D. Jackson; J. Freeman; K. Langford. Sign Earl Okine; Amarlo Herrera; Duron Carter; Erik Swoope; Ben Heenan; Alex Tanney; P. LaDarius to the 53 from the P.S. & resign Dan Adongo. Then let the kids play the final 2 games, along with a lot of the back ups on the 53 that haven't played much,
  7. Just read Jonathan Martin was released today by the 49ers. Wondering if he'll end up with Standford central = the Indy Colts. Frank Gore should be able give the staff up close info on him from this past season as they were team mates. I think the 9ers were running the same power run game stuff the Colts want to run, so we may see Martin in camp unless another team offers a lot more money. Peace
  8. I remember specificly watching Lenz & Lankford in a few preseason games. Lenz caught at least 1 td pass (decent length, think like a 20-35 yarder) & maybe a 2nd one. Lankford i remember didn't look to good. I saw abt 3 targets to him & he didn't look ready. Routes were messy & didn't make good attempt at receptions. Lets see how they've improved after a season on the practice squad. I think we should get a proven vet FA wr in here & maybe draft one as well. Same with RB's. Vet FA & maybe draft one as well.
  9. I agree with your assment of the roster. I think step 1 is fixing the OL (which I outlined on pg 2 of the OL topic). Basicly I think you bring in 2 good vet FA guards. Move Mewhort to tackle & let he & John battle it out for the RT spot & cut Cherilus. Let Holmes & Harrison battle it out for center. The other guards on the current roster can battle it out for backup spots. A better OL is a better offense even with the same other position personnel. On defense start with the front 7. The DL & Inside linebackers need the most upgrade. Then the safety's.
  10. For next season I vote for bringing in 2 good proven vet guard FA's. I think u have to stop looking at potential & look for proven performance, before we get Luck get killed. You can let the other guards we have battle it out for backups. At center u can keep Holmes & Harrison. At tackle I think you move Mewhort here & let him battle it out for RT with Ulrick John & cut Cherilus. That should result in a good OL next season if the O line coaches are any good. As long as we're talking offense, you also need to bring in another vet FA wr with speed & seperation. Wayne &am
  11. Thou Holmes has a small sample size, his grades are consistantly good. I think you have to continue to let the man play to see what you have. Shipley is a better pass blocker than Harrison & the Colts are 60-65% passing team. Play Shipley. It looks like Mewhort may be a good player. I think next year he goes back to tackle where he made his name in college. His skills seem better suited to tackle from what i've read from scouts. Mewhort may be able to move Cherilus to a backup roll next season. For me the Colts have to get a good vet FA guard/center to add into the mix for next sea
  12. The Colts currently have ten OL on the 53. I think last yr they usually carried 8. They can activate Xavier Nixon within the next 2 weeks. I think they'll trade/cut two OL in the next few weeks, which leads into their bye. I expect them to activate Nixon, as he's experienced at both G & T. Which leaves Jamon Meredith out. They then must decide between Holmes, Shipley & Lewis. I think Holmes & Shipley both have a leg up on Lewis, so he may be the one traded/cut as well. Also, cudos to rookie Zach Kerr who seems to now be getting the majority of the snaps at NT & is now listed
  13. Well, just heard the Packers signed him. I guess per some of you they've decided to risk their organization on this. Let's see if he makes the team. Lets see if he has a career.
  14. The Colts have him listed at 310, which is light for a nose tackle. I hope his real weight is more like that 326 that was originally listed.
  15. I'm with the original poster. Thou not the biggest team need, 3rd TE has been a weakness offensively. Both Allen & Fleener have had injuries & missed alot of time in the past. Currrent 3rd TE guys fighting for the spot Doyle & Sanders didn't have many receptions. I meant to see if Lyerla was drafted or not. He has alot of physical ability & his 1st name is Colt. I've heard based on his play the previous season he would have been a 2nd or 3rd round pick. If he's available, I say pick him up. Won't cost anything has a UDFA. If he mess'es up, cut him. I think he deserves
