Yeah confused, perhaps there were other issues. I thought he looked pretty solid on the pre season, he had that sack and wrecked havoc on a few other plays. Wonder if there were some odd issues or perhaps someone else was chopped recently from another team that they might be eyeing???? Not sure just a thought.

If it's common sense than your saying the colt's dont have any.So that is exactly what your saying.

Man are you telling me that an organization is incapable of making mistakes? if you are then you need broaden your football horizon. The colts may have liked another tackle more than him and if thats the case its a bad move, the guy was pretty good in the time he played much better than moala id say you can never have enough talent at that position so yea bad move.

No all i am saying is i trust the organization,they see him in practice day to day we don't.Yes they make mistakes but not in this case,harris is not a great player anymore...period.Also let's see what shakes down today,a trade or waiver wire pick up,before we jump to conclusions over a guy on the decline.

HE MADE 2 BIG PLAYS IN PRESEASON. BIG FREAKIN DEAL. If the team was in your hands, we'd be lucky to win 4 games. Taj Smith made many more plays, and might get cut. omg.

Arent you the same one that was bashing painter? or was it brown? lol... harris is still a very good tackle, i dont see the colts making any trade for anyone now, i think they like what they see in their DT's so thats probably why.

lol excluding nevis how many other DT's the colts have performed like that? taj smith catches with his body and peyton doesnt need ppl like that.

You guy's need to cool it down a bit.

As for my thoughts; I'd rather have an extra defensive lineman than a third QB, even with Peyton banged up. Harris will find a spot in a team's rotation, but curtis painter would working at mcdonalds if he was cut. (and I've been a painter supporter so don't try to play the 'painter-hater' card.)

the colts DO NOT agree for if they did he would have played in the bengals game and try to convince them otherwise... kerry collins hasnt proved anything if anything he's proved that he's a big slow qb thats scared to get down and cover his own fumble. The way painter didnt play kinda makes it seem like he's the starter.

They no what they have in painter{not much}collins needed the work in case he has to start against the texans.That was the reason.lol,collins is scared?this man has done things in this league that painter could only dream of.

Exactly,it's not like they cut a guy who was in high demand around the league,the colts got him for cheap and we know why.

I guess it's pointless to try and talk sense to people. The fans obviously know more than people who do it for a living. Chris Polian should retire, and the message board should collectively be the new GM. Yeah, that's the ticket.

You realize this is a FORUM, right? A place of discussion? It's about discussing what the team does and if you like it. There was posters like yourself on here when we drafted jerry hughes. People like you pulled out the whole "in BP we trust" line, and by the end of the year, BP himself said it was a mistake not to select roger saffold. Same thing with Joe Addai over MJD. BP selected Joe cause he thought MJD couldn't block, which is false. He's proven to be a very good blocker.

My point: BP isn't perfect. Stop acting like he is. He could very easily be correct about harris, but he isn't so perfect that we can't discuss, if not criticize, one of the organization's roster moves.

No question you make good points.Polian has been whiffing on first rounders lately and second rounders{pollack}.But the harris release i can't get crazy with,harris is on the decline.

Yes because the front office never makes mistakes. Ugoh is playing awesome! You do realize you are on a forum and sometimes fans may disagree with the team. God forbid people have opinions and do not just post Colts are greatest and every move they make is perfect.

I was a little suprised by this move, but from what I have read sounds like the Colts were not to happy he missed time during the preseason. Their medical staff must have said he could go and Harris did not push it.

Thankfully Nevis is looking like the real deal.

Yeah, he's on the decline, but I personally think he could contribute a but more than chad span, he's still on the roster. But if he's injured, then this whole topic is moot.

Btw: If there is a trade looming, anyone else think maybe lance briggs makes sense? It just came out yesterday or the day before that has requested a trade.

I would think he would be to expensive and im hoping its for another DT, but who knows.

Briggs would be awesome,but i doubt we do it.Can never have enough difference makers on D.I have a feeling the trade will be for a DT.

Just because it's a forum, doesn't mean ignorance is welcomed. People don't express their opinions. They talk as if what they are saying is absolute truth, and the front office of a mega-million dollar franchise has no idea what they are doing.

We are completely in the right to dispute those comments.

No one said anywhere that they always make the right moves. Can you pull up that quote somewhere? Didn't think so. Furthermore, every single franchise makes bad moves, but it's almost always in hindsight that the quality of the decision can be determined. Overall, the Colts are in the top 5 for consistent intelligence.

We also had an excess of DT's, and Nevis is catching on quickly. Which would you rather have? A talented DT who's young, has lots of promise, and is mega-disruptive? Or an old DT, with known injury issues, and is on the decline, but can still be a force.

Option A is the smart move 100% of the time.

I feel like its gotta be for a DT, CB, or S. maybe a G but i doubt it. Brandon Merriweather just got cut by the pats... thats something to think about for depth at S.

Igor olshansky was also cut today by the cowboys. hes 6'5 315 and could play DT for us. So maybe thats a possibility as well. I doubt any of these will happen. just bouncing ideas around.

I only mentioned pollack as a second round bust.Why do you insist on trying to distort what i say?

because what you said was wrong. You said second round picks lately. I pointed out that Angerer and Moala our last two second round picks were not misses. Despite what some believe Polian is not nearly as bad at his job as some make him out to be.

Yeah he's had misses, what GM doesn't?

    • Beats me.   But generally speaking, I think having teams "prove their innocence" by measuring how many minorities are hired...and incentivizing it if the results aren't good enough.... is a method that creates weird processes that defy common sense, IMO, if not defying the spirit of rule making and enforcement.   LIke the rooney rule.  Requiring minorities to be "interviewed" means nothing when it comes to deciding who to hire from a pool of interviewed candidates.   Now, many people are seeing the flaws with the process, because the process is weird.  It lacked common sense the day it was passed.  And they admit it now because they are not getting the results they want. Just backwards as *.  A rational process doesn't make decisions like that.  That's why I called it nonsense.
    • First off.. Thanks Superman for writing this up on Young   I would be very happy with either Young or Stroud as our pick     In regards to Richardson   If teams trade up and both Young and Stroud are gone (I think its a small chance)   But.... If that happens, I would consider taking Richardson over Levis   at 4   I really dont want to give up 2 firsts and 2 2nds and a player for a move up to 1            
    • Yes.  I could be negative and see only how every Qb we take could bust...and with the questions each has any one of them could be a bust, but I look at this pretty optimistically.  We need a QB, and I think this draft presents a lot of possibilities and choices that could work out for the best.  Trade up for the elite guy and he works out.  Stand Pat for the second best guy and he works out.  Trade back and pick up a traitsy player who needs a year to develop in a year where we have no chance of going to the SB anyway.   There are about 5 or 6 QBs that could all work for us depending upon if the investment is correct.      As a fan, I can't see me criticizing any of the picks or moves Ballard makes this draft when it comes to QBs.  But, as a fan, I reserve the right to later say...."He should have known better" if it doesn't work out.  He's getting paid to know better.
    • This definitely makes sense. People seem fixated on Chicago taking Anderson or Carter. Poles has said his main objective has and will be to help Fields by surrounding him with talent. That starts up front. Even if they trade down in the top 4, I feel they will trade down again to stock picks. Anderson and Carter are nice players but I don't see Poles taking a risk on one player. He is more of the obtain more picks and increase chances of upgrading talent guy.
    • I don't accept your description that its trolling.  Trolling is intentionally saying something simply to stir the pot...to muck up the works.   If this got to a national level.... to a general football loving base, sports loving base, or general population, you don't know that the responses would be limited to just Colts fans.  You may have thousands of people who would see the Jeff hire as simply a rich white billionaire hiring is buddy over more qualified candidates.....maybe even minorities.....and would sign the petition to voice their concerns over such .    Which would be a concern to them beyond caring how many Ws and Ls Jeff might cause.     If Jeff is hired, there will be questions from general football fans, sports fans, or the population asking "What does this hire say about the NFL?"   I'd wager that the possibility of Irsay "hiring his buddy over other candidates" already has grated on enough people to contribute to their existing opinion about whether or not Jeff should be hired.    And this is the type of emotion the media morphs into and taps into.  Effectively, the media trolls the population trying to get them all triggered up.   Besides.  Petitions by their nature are one sided.  10,000 signatures may sound like a lot, but it may be less than the 11,000 votes that would support Jeff for HC if an actual poll was the medium used for fan expression.  Or less than the 150,000 opinions who are comfortable leaving it up to the owner to hire the HC he wants for the reasons he wants.  These opinions would never be known, because if you are comfortable leaving it up to the owner, you are the type of person who is not going to sign a petition in the first place.  Petitions are a form of activism, and most people aren't activists.  And most activists could care less if their opinion is in the minority, they just want their opinion to prevail.
