Dwight Freeney will not be back , He don't fit the 3-4 & It was obvious + He wants the kind of money he's made in the past for that he needs move back into a 4-3 . Truth is Robert Mathis needs to move on as well . Thats not to say he did'nt look okay , Its more IMO like we need better run stoppers up front & Neither Freeney or Mathis can help in fixing whats wrong with our D-line . Simply stopping the run our most glaring weakness for years with secondary a close second waste no money on Freeny .

Watched the PB a couple of minutes . It looked like maybe there earlier Afc - Nfc contests , Like thumb wrestling or noodleing or water polo took alot outta the AFC squad looks like they needed some red bull , So much for motivational speaking engagements .

With it being a pro bowl I was a lil surprised at the score did everyone play for the NFC ??

Waterboy ? fake GF's ?

Not sure why you would want to get rid of Mathis too. It is a passing league and you have to put pressure on the QB. Mathis still does that pretty well.

Freeney probably won't be back, but we thought that about Reggie this time last year.

1.  I really don't think Freeney will be back next season. I will miss him if he does go and wish him all the best !!!

 

2.  I watched the whole game.   Was nice to get to see Luck play again.  And seeing Jeff snap the ball to Peyton one last time, I loved that :)

1.  Not unless he'll play for what he's worth, but someone will overpay for him.

 

2.  I DVRed it and watched Peyton and Andrew.  Both looked good, but it wasn't like they were seeing much pressure from the D line on most plays.

Even if Dwight Freeney had 15 sacks this season, it would be hard to bring him back..

...he isnt a 3-4 end...as everyone here has said.

Now if he would agree to play as a 3rd down pass rush specialist for a fraction of what he banked in 2012, maybe just 2 or 3 mil....

then I would bring him back because he still can draw a double team in passing situations..

But Chuck Pagano would probably have to convince Grigson they need him and then convince Freeney to stay for low cash..

That's a lot of convincing..

    • Draft experienced college starter LDE types like Payton Turner or Carlos Basham in the 2nd round for immediate help, and a more bendy guy like Chancey Golston in the later rounds...which is where bendy developmental guys should be drafted.   The thing with Houston might be beyond Ballard's immediate control.  Houston might be thinking he could do the Veldeer move...sign with a playoff team late in the year and hope to slide into a Super Bowl ring situation....unless the money to play the entire year blows him away.
    • I like Walker Little or even Spencer Brown. I just think size and strength is important. I know Spencer Brown is a small school guy but he had elite testing and he had a good showing at the Senior Bowl. He’s one of the guys who handled Patrick Jones all day long in the one-on-one’s. 
    • Yeah I’m with you on this.  Especially if we can resign Houston or sign another veteran ER.  Fix OT and take a WR or CB with the first two picks and we have a chance at another great draft.  I am hearing and reading a lot of reports today about a lot more teams willing to trade back.  I see that as a red flag especially in light of a weak ER class.  With all of the uncertainty this year I would prefer we draft into the strength of the class.  TY an Rhodes aren’t getting any younger. 
    • I really do not understand the idea of not paying Darius Leonard or Nelson because they don't play "premium positions". There are only so many elite talents at each position on the football field. I think most people would look at the Colts and say we have 3 or 4 elite talents (Big Q, Leonard, Bucker, and possibly Taylor). Would it be nice if we could fill each position on the football with an elite talent? Sure it would. Is it possible? NO. Elite talent covers for the deficiencies at other positions. Our offensive line was average at best before the addition of Big Q. Now the Colts OLine is looked at as one the top units in the NFL. Our defense isn't elite yet but it is much better than it would be without Leonard and Buckner. When you have proven elite talent you keep it because it makes everyone on the field better. I would love it if we could have all-pros at every position on the field but it isn't possible. When you do have all-pros you pay them.
    • MAC can take over for Doyle as the traditional blocking/possession TE.  He's not the kind of dynamic TE Irsay was talking about a while back.   If we don't acquire Ertz for 1 or 2 years, Tremble, McKitty, or Brevin Jordan from UMiami would fit that profile.   Since we're a little thin/unstable at the receiver position, acquiring that move TE this year will help Wentz get comfortable.
