    Werner

    This is a classic example of drafting a player on NEED, vs best available We needed a pass rusher, he was available we took him There were better players at other positions, on the board...... I hoped he would work out........ but........ Its time to move on
  2. I dont give grief to anyone in this league that wants to be sure that they arent furthering an injury by comeing back too early Last year... the doctor was WRONG...... he came back to early...... he reinjured the leg......... I also would get a second opnion Many players cant walk without pain the rest of their lives after playing. Some (many need a cane)........... The average NFL career is less than 4 years Just another viewpoint
  3. I bet there will be some decent LGs released on the second cut When I say decent,,,,,, better than Louis (Louise)
  4. The problem is.... Griff doesnt warrant a trade for a draft pick........ People like Griff, are all over the place...... Moncrief has to show more to be trade bait...... He might be worth a 3rd or 4th
  5. After seeing the Vikings give away 75 players to the Cowboys for H. Walker...... any trade is possible You wouldnt do the trade if we could get a stud pro bowl NT as part of the package (We would have to also give up some picks? I would..... and it would help this year
  6. Fleener is a big WR in this offense His blocking is suspect Allen is less of a reciever, but he can block The reality is............ with the possible exception of Luck EVERYONE has a trade price. Carter MAY be worth a 7th (Probably not) Fleener is probably worth a 3rd
  7. How in the world do you blame the GM for INJURIES???????? Amazing..........
  8. Some of the posters on this thread are in the fable of Henny Penny........... (Stars of the fable) "The sky is falling......... the sky is falling"
  9. Great post! This was one of the more even handed posts you have done in a while....... I was only able to watch a few clips...... but The positives are there The negatives are very "fixable" and will be addressed When Gore and Robinson wear down the defense, it will be a beautiful thing to watch in the 4th quarter When Mathis gets on the field and is added to the pass rush already there, it will be a beautiful thing to watch I think we will be a top 2-3 team in the NFL this year.
  10. Yeah.... Its not on NFL network over the weekend like every other game
  11. Its funny you say that, because I probably was one of those guys that wanted him to be the saviour of this OL........ It just goes to show you,,,,,,,,, It doenst always work out as its planned.......... The hindsight guys ("I TOLD YOU that we should have got THAT guy!!!! Gris is so STUPID..... We need to fire Pagano.....") dont tend to remember when they say we should have drafted or traded the farm for "Mr Amazing Talent"... Mt Talent,,,,, that doesnt work out........ I would LOVE to go through this forum over the past 5 years.... and see how many people were always right It isnt an exact science...... we just read and reguritate most of the stuff that gets posted here..... We see a play or two, and make an assumption....... Maybe people that do this for a living .......... maybe they are better at it
  12. There is some history between Grigs and the Eagles It appears to be mostly positive, but lets face it......... not everyone gets along with everyone else Mathis and Grigs could just be personalies that dont mesh Think about ALL of your past co-workers...... you liked some of them, and wouldnt mind working with them again....... but....... there is that dude in accounting....... you know.... "Bob" what a wienie....... You WOULDNT want to work with him again Another factor might have benn Heremans, who knows if they just didnt get along There is always something going on behind the scenes that isnt visable........
  13. What if........... He plays as good as when he was in NE? He was a decent G there... not great, but better than whats on the Colts roster today at G A man can dream I think the Colts are still high on Donald Thomas, even after 2 years of injuries Lets keep our fingers crossed (While keeping the sky high expectations at bay)........ He may be a starting G on this team
  14. 1,2,3........ It was splained allready....... in 30 threads.......
  15. I agree..... I think you will see that they will ALSO use Moncrief more when it is red zone
  16. You are correct.... I should have referenced "in the playoffs"
  17. Manning is like a ferrari........ He can get on it when the conditions are good Luck is like a 4 wheel drive F150 ......... he can go when others cant Unfortunately (or fortunately) depending on what side of the arguement you are on, the playoffs are many times in the cold and slop........... (the Ferrai may need to be in the garage) ....... The F150 becomes more practical Luck at this stage is a bit more reckless than Manning was (2nd year on)..... But...... I see Luck becoming more like a younger Brett Farve, that takes the team on his back, and finds a way to win Luck gives you that 3rd and 2 to go down, where everyone is covered, he just takes off and runs over the db, and gets the first down When Manning had a 3rd and 2....... and everyone was covered, ........it was punt time.......... For those that "pine away" for the "good old days.......... please stop......... Those good old teams SHOULD have won 3-4 SBs....... they didnt Manning never really figured out the 3-4, in the playoffs, on the grass......... Anything can happen, but in my book, this team..... with slight improvement each year, and some solid cap management, should be on the doorstep of the SB for the next 10 years Imagine the mood on the Jaguars or Radiers board.......... they hope to just be competitive An 8-8 record would be an amazing feat....... We have been spoiled folks...... enjoy the ride..... .... (While it lasts)
  18. Our stud NT isnt on this team, I fear............
  19. I dont want to offend anyone....... this is obviously a comparison thread of how weak the Colts are now, vs how strong the Colts were THEN A bit of a silly thread.... but I know as a Colts fan, you just want the team to win Manning was and is Awesome..... He led this loser of a team out of the basement......... But....... If its january, if its cold, if its windy.......... I would take Luck ALWAYS over Manning Manning had too many games where we dominated the regular season but stunk up the playoffs.... ONE AND DONE That was him AND the teams of those times Again........ give me the slop and cold.... IN JANUARY or FEBRUARY........ I would MUCH rather have Luck! And... the team that we have assmbled today! We keep getting better.... the trends are in the right direction........ have faith people I believe the OL will step it up My biggest concern is NT....(But we MIGHT be able to win the SB regardless)
  20. I agree He looked strong with the Broncos Freeman can cover (some) but isnt a good run stopper However........... ALL of our ILBs would LOOK better if we had decent NT play............ Freeman gets clobbered when a RB has a full head of steam Jackson does OK, but is slower in reacting.... and then when he is on the field when the competition passes......... (guess where the ball goes)
  21. It would appear, minus injuries that the offense improved (it became more explosive) It would appear, minus injuries that the defense improved (maybe only slightly overall, but definitley more depth) Even a little improvement, for a team that went to the AFC championship game could be all we need to win the SB
  22. Actually....... You get credit for winning This team has won.... Last I looked, they improved every year the last 3 years One game from the SB....... When you win.... you get the benefit of the doubt........ This front office deserves the benefit of the doubt They have made some good decisions and they have made some bad ones.... (Please show me a front office that has been perfect in every decision) Rehashing and continuing the shoulda coulda woulda stuff, from 3 years ago....(Like we are all some great talent evaluators) .....without at least recognizing the successes is a little bit one sided, dont you think? There are 26 (or so) other teams that wish that they had OUR........ HORRIBLE problems.............
  23. Werner was an attempt to improve the pass rush with an aging Mathis....... Give the front office some credit.... they were trying ...... its that Hindsight thing....... However, and again, I will get booed on this board if I show a little optimism, I think Werner will develop into a good football player. He doesnt have a passrushers speed or moves but I think he can develop into a decent LB on the strong side We will see
  24. Did you watch the 4th string, reserve place kick holder????? He just stinks We are doomed........ DOOMED!!!!!!
