I would rather have carter than brown carter can be a 3rd down back....browns wants to be starting and he's not what we need so time to get rid of him anyway he makes too many mistakes

Right now Bradshaw is better RB  then Ballard for at least  the next 2 years. I know both will split carries but if Bradshaw is healthy week 1 will he start over Ballard?

Or the '06 and first 8 games of '07 version of Addai.

Im not so sure. We might cut Brown simply to clear cap space.

Why would you cut Brown when his contract ends this year? That's a cap penalty we take instead of waiting till the end to do it

I'm quite sure DBs cap hit is negligible.

It's gonna be alot of disappointment when Donald Brown isn't cut. I don't see what makes some of you believe Carter will stay over Brown

That's like saying the Patriots will cut Tom Brady so Ryan Mallet can start this season

Dear God. Another washed up RB who got cut. The DB haters are out in force. Get a grip.

How is he washed up? He ran for over 1,000 yards last season.

Because if you aren't named Donald Brown, you aren't worth anything.

@mchappell51: Keep in mind when #colts sign Ahmad Bradshaw, they'll have to create roster spot. Not that that will be a problem

Delone Carter

Cassius Vaughn

Who else can get the boot? Lol

He has a 1.7 mil base this year with a total hit of 2.7.

 

Why would you cut Brown when his contract ends this year? That's a cap penalty we take instead of waiting till the end to do it

 

If we cut him his 1.7 mil base salary doesn't count against the cap.

Grigson likes players with leadership and toughness.  Bradshaw has tons of both and he is the kind of player that you want in the playoffs.

I like that we're really helping Pep Hamilton out in his first year in the NFL. Makes the coaches job a whole lot easier when he has talent in numerous players.

Keep up the good work Grigson :colts:

Don't need him. He is young, but he is injured often. I'm fine with our RBs as of now. They aren't superstars, but they get the job done

Yet he still had more carries (221), ran for more yards (1,015) and had more TD's (6) than any of the Colts backs did last year.  If we can add a 1,000 yard rusher to the stable I am all for it particularly if he comes cheap.

Ballard, Brown and Bradshaw?!?

 

Wait!!    That's my law firm!!

 

They're right next door to another high profile firm....      Dewey, Cheatum and Howe....

 

 

A good omen????  I think it was Chris Polian.  Lord I miss him.....(Like a root canal) :funny:

 

 

His right foot has been operated on 3 times....his most recent being this off season when they replaced a screw in his foot with an even bigger screw. He has also had procedures on his left foot and both ankles.

That does sound like a prestigious law firm NCF, but the real question is what do they specialize in & what do the partners demand for a retainer to take on a new client? Yeah Brent, but a Chris Polian root canal is missing the novacane.  haha BOTT does make a valid point. Bradshaw's injuries/surgeries do give me cause to pause. Don't give him a ton of guaranteed money upfront Grigs. Make him prove his durability in INDY first IMO.

Being a critic doesn't take much energy... especially around here, where few bother to back up critical assertions with anything resembling facts. And challenging unsubstantiated claims is treated like a cardinal sin by some.

(Dustin, thanks for breaking that mold. You've restored my faith... a little).

    • NFL.com's Profile   Draft Grade: 5.30 NFL BACKUP OR SPECIAL TEAMS POTENTIAL Draft Projection: Round 5 College: Mich St Position: S Height: 5-11 Weight: 213 40 Time: 4.52     BIO: Willis was named the Ann Arbor News Michigan High School Player of the Year in 2014 as a running back after he covered nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 31 touchdowns. He didn't end up at Ann Arbor for college, signing with Sparty. Willis started 3 of 9 games played as a true freshman (11 tackles), but his season ended before the Big Ten Championship Game due to a broken foot. He started one game in 2016, making 30 tackles in 11 contests overall. An opening occurred in MSU's secondary for 2017, and Willis took advantage. He garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten honors that season, accumulating 71 tackles, 5.5 for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, and three pass breakups. He repeated his honorable mention all-conference performance as a senior, posting 84 tackles, two interceptions, and 10 pass breakups in 13 starts for the Spartans.   Overview: Team leader known for his leadership and work ethic, Willis has been a reliable performer with a good nose for the football. However, he's an average athlete with below-average speed who needs to keep plays in front of him, so finding a roster spot on the next level could be a challenge. His high football character and consistent effort level, give him a shot at finding work as a backup with special teams value .   Strengths: Praised for exceptional character Good size with compact build and desired play strength Plays with consistent motor and effort all game long Runs the alley with accurate map to the ball carrier Reliable and plays under control Reads quarterback's eyes for early indicators in coverage Sees the entire field from deep safety Handled some slot cover duties in sub-packages Good awareness from short zone and responds quickly to throws   Weaknesses: Below-average athlete lacking explosiveness Top-end speed is a concern Struggles to range over the top from deep zone Slow to open hips and sprint with early speed Tight strider with below-average burst to close Limited lateral agility to maintain man coverage Very modest ball production    
    • 1. Again that is how people view QBs rather that is fair or not   2. Im referring more from a talent perspective   3. Its more to justify Luck as a talent.
    • I like that there's evidently a clear plan for developing and using him, and I think that's true for everyone they added this year. We'll see how it plays out, but I expect that they'll be trying to put guys in position to excel, not trying to force them to do something they aren't good at.   I think this shows with the Funchess signing. Definitely not my favorite acquisition, and I wanted them to go in a different direction, but Warren Sharp posted splits showing how Funchess performed on certain routes, and compared it with how Luck produces when throwing to those routes. It seems like an ideal match for our offense, and I think the front office and coaching staff identified that together, and went out and got him. I don't think they'll ask him to be a downfield burner, I think they're going to use him on curls, outs, and maybe slants, and I think it's going to add a dimension to the offense, especially on big downs when defenses play tight man coverage.    If they took a similar approach with the players they drafted -- what's the plan for this guy on our team, and how do we develop his traits so that he can excel in this role? -- it will show in the way they use them right away. Tell, Campbell, Willis, Banogu... all have traits that can be tapped into right away.
    • So I'm a little confused now. Are you basing your views on the roster that the QB is playing with instead of the QB himself? I don't see how you can say the AFC championship game on only had "3 great players."    If you ask me has Luck done more with less then some other QB's then that answer is 100% yes. But your question is How do you view Andrew without a championship?       Not how Andrew Luck will be viewed because he doesn't have great teams around him.
    • 1. If my aunt had a set, she'd be my uncle.  Marino didn't win 6 so who cares?   2. The larger point is I am lost on your arm talent argument.  Who cares who had the best arm?  That is only one small component of what makes an elite level QB.  Greg Maddux is a HoF pitcher and he had not close to the velocity of Kyle Farnsworth, who can only get into the HoF if he bought a ticket.  In an NFL comparison, Joe Montana did not have near the arm that Marino or Elway did but he is clearly among the best QB's ever to play the game. 3. I don't care about the Colts 2014 roster.  I know who was on the team and I don't think they would have been a good match up for the 1970 Steelers. I am simply saying that you don't really know if it was the worst roster to make the AFCCG in history.  It's over an over the top argument simply made to prove a point you can't make otherwise.
