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..

    • Where so u get that Smith will male 10 million a year? Have looked at the top  right tackle salaries? This Oline is bout to get very expensive. So alot of our cap will be in our Oline and a WSL. How will we invest in the skill positions?
    • From Microsoft Sports: Indianapolis Colts The Colts took a big swing by trading for Carson Wentz for a third-round pick and a conditional second-rounder, and will now be dedicating all of their resources to helping him find his game again. But there is no guarantee that will work, nor is there a guarantee Wentz will be 100 percent healthy all year given his laundry list of ailments suffered under center in the NFL. They'll want a reliable backup. They'd likely even be willing to offer a few million more than the veteran minimum for such services. Smith can offer that. Indy is the best balance of winning and a chance to play that Smith has. If the Wentz experiment works out, the Colts will be legitimate title contenders and a Super Bowl ring is one of the few boxes Smith has yet to check in his lengthy football career. If Wentz gets hurt, it'll be Smith leading the charge. If Wentz stinks from Week 1 on and the Colts have no shot at the playoffs, there's a very good chance they bench Wentz for the final five games of the season to avoid sending Philadelphia a first-round pick instead of a second-round pick next year. Which means playing time for Smith. As close to a win-win Smith could find if he wants the best of both worlds.
    • Believe it or not, the buzz I’ve read in Meinerz is not late Day 3....    but Day 2.   And that's based on a D3 kid Tampa drafted about 5 years ago.   An interior OL named Ali Meipart.   He had a very good Senior Bowl week and was taken late R2.  In the early 60’s.   Scouts think if Meipart can make the jump, so can Meinerz.   So look for him to probably go sometime Day 2.    I know the mock simulators show him on Day 3,  but those don’t typically get accurate until sometime in April. 
    • Yeah it seems that if he gets beat off the LOS and the receiver gets a step on him, he panics because he don't have good recovery speed. I think he needs to work harder on his technique and keep his concentration. Ballard will kind of need to see a marked improvement from him next year. He gave up some big plays last year that killed us at times (Steelers, Titans) or nearly killed us (Green Bay).
    • While i think Pinter could be a serviceable center I would much rather DOS a true center. Pinter went from a TE to RT and now possibly a RG in the future. There is a lot more involved in the centers job then just snapping the ball so i would prefer someone more proficient at it.
