hey.. they're getting every SCRUB in the table.. they're getting the fishes just the smaller one that fit in their pockets...

ha, they are scrubs in your eyes because you don't know who they were at first, neither if the O-linemen we signed were scrubs, and Greg Toler is certainly no scrub, in fact all three of those guys will have good years here next year just wait, the only questionable one really is Erik Welden, but just look at Tim Jennings, let them play before insulting them smh...

I'm not criticizing mind you. I just think this is going a LOT different than we expected. Doesn't help when Jim tweets teasers and gets all of us worked up

When Jim teased us back in the fall we got Vontae Davis. By the weekend I think we bring in some really good talent.

Can anyone please show me where the Colts "lost" Vasquez? I know there were writers spreading rumors that the Colts were looking at him, and a million threads here, but can anyone provide a quote from JI, Grigs or Pags?

No joke, not to mention Vasquez went to Denver of all places, if you are a line man & you have John Elway whooing you about protecting and making a SB run with 18, not really hard to see why hes a Bronco now...

^^ Exactly! Every one just assumes we "lost" him .... why does no one consider the possibility we got who we wanted, and Vasquez was not our first choice?  Just because the majority of the board anointed Vasquez as the best option for us at guard does not mean the Colts had him rated as such.

I don't think we're done for sure. DL, WR, I doubt QB. We can pick up a backup if they want one for cheap or grab late in the draft or UDFA.

Colts had no chance with Vasquez once John Elway gave his agent a call.  The man wanted to play for a Super Bowl, that they are the biggest most obvious contenders that where in the market for a guard.  

 

He could have easily gotten more money then he did.  He gave them a "I want to play for a SB" discount.  

 

That's what happened.  And while we are good and I think we are improving. . . we are still pretty far behind Denver.

We could have gotten Vasquez if we wanted him.

 

We are behind Denver ... but they have to win now, because they only have about a 2 year window before they are no longer contenders and shopping for a QB. Which will be just about the time we are back to being one of the dominant contenders.

I don't think so, the guy took way too big of a discount to say that we could have gotten him without way overspending for him.  Vasquez could have gotten 7 or 8 million easily.  He took 5.8 million.  

 

Denver isn't going to be shopping for a QB as much as you might think.  The year they signed Peyton they also drafted Brock Osweiler in the 2nd round.  He's Peyton's backup now and is likely their QB of the future.  It's hard to gauge how good he really is though because he's only thrown 4 passes in garbage time.  On those passes he was 2 - 4 for 12 yards.  

 

But that having been said, I agree that they are only major contenders while Peyton is still there.  But they do have his replacement in the wings.

I agree with Valpo.  I think Vasquez chose Denver to play for the best team.  I definitely think he could have gotten more money.  Plus take into account that he signed a 4 year contract and, if I'm not mistaken, there are 4 years remaining on Peyton's contract.  Could be coincidence...or not.

Yeah, Denver is in serious win now mode. They honestly don't have much of a future at QB after Peyton.

The Colts on the other hand are playing with house money. I love it.

Peyton Manning agreed to a five-year contract worth a reported $96 million with the Denver Broncos on Tuesday.

 

 

 

 

Now don't get me wrong, I know that contracts can be changed, restructured, voided with correct terms, etc etc...just saying the actual contract was for 5 years. :)

    • If there is a elite young WR in FA I would definitely go that route. Plus a draft pick that would be big. 
    • The Eagles are super banged up! Top 2 WR out now their starting RB. Going be hard for them to score I think.
    • Put me in the camp calling for a free agent WR as well as one taken high in the draft. We all know that it takes a couple of years to hit your stride as a pro WR. I don’t think the team can wait for that. The Colts need to improve at this position immediately, especially with TY showing the inevitable signs of aging, i.e. he’s dinged up constantly. I’m not sure what will be out there next year FA-wise, but I know this: they can’t fix this problem with draft picks alone. 
    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/american-football/50448708   Looks like he's not given up on getting a gig in then NFL, but acting like this is getting to endear him to organisations. I can understand that he might not agree with the terms of the workout, but you've got to handle it more professionally than this.    Shame, I really do think he has talent. 
    • Most of us HATE injustice. We saw it with the OJ situation: part of the country wanted justice for all of the times police overstepped their boundaries and innocent people got arrested or convicted. The other part of our population wanted a murderer convicted for killing two people. Both sides wanted justice.         Same is true for police brutality and social injustice. To me, these are individual acts done by individuals and protests against the flag are misguided. It’s saying this country stands for injustice and inequality and nothing can be further from the truth.          We live in a country that provides the opportunity for all people to do well: Athletes, Doctors, Businessmen, Pastors, Actors and Musicians have reaped the benefits of living in this great country.         I have no problem with anyone protesting individual acts of racism or injustice. But to protest the flag is misguided.
