Colts should re-sign Brown to 1 - 2 year deal

If we're only allowed to talk things about players we personally know. This board would be silent lol.

I would say there is a difference between just talking about players and assuming what a player is thinking. I think Brown has been playing better, but I'd be surprised if contract motivation had much to do with it.

It's unknowable either way though lol.

To say "he is motivated by a contract", or to say "no that's wrong he isn't motivated by his contract" is just speculation on both sides. Just because one assumes a positive doesn't make it correct or neutral.

It depends entirely on the price. I think Donald's worth bringing back, but not worth paying a premium to keep around. 

 

I agree, it depends on how much he wants.  Honestly anything more then a million a year is too much.  You can get good backs in the late rounds that get paid NFL min.

I don't think its about money at all....they had Brown on special teams

We have a coaching staff that wants big, slow collision-style runners..

They don't see the need for his kind

Brown has 11 games to show Pagano that he needs a fast halfback..

I think Brown has shown already that we really can use a fast running back.

 

And, growing up on the NJ shore, where Brown and Knowshon Moreno went to HS (my school beat Knowshon's for the state title my junior year when he was a freshman, and his school took the next 3 -- and the reason Donnie wasn't first-team all-state was solely because Knowshon was in the same class as him) -- I can almost guarantee you that Donnie isn't just playing for money -- he is a class act, very good family, very humble, and I think he has put in his best effort since day 1 as a Colt.  I think this is just the first year that we are utilizing him the proper way.

Meh. Not against it, but there are of plenty of backs who can do what he does in late rounds of the draft or free agency.

Disagree. Brown has never had a decent run-blocking line, so to say there are "plenty of backs..." is really kinda baseless. I'll agree that he is not a great blocker, but other than that, he's a good back.

While he is playing better for sure, I'm not sold from what I've seen over the last 3 years as opposed to the last 3 weeks. It is time to move on after this year imo.

I think Brown is a better blocker than we give him credit for.  He has the "G'dangit Donald" video with Peyton and the sack against Miami... other than that, I don't really see many problems with his pass-blocking -- I am sure he has been in on at least 100 plays in his career as a pass blocker besides those 2 and I don't really recall any significant mistakes otherwise.

 

I am glad people are not giving him too much flack for that punt block last week -- he had 2 guys up the gut and forced the eventual blocker to the outside (he made a very good cutback to block it) but he ate up the guy coming straight up the guy -- that was as good of a play as he could have possibly made given the circumstance (IMO)
