Session/AJ or... Brandon Mebane


Brett Snyder

Recommended Posts

Personally, I've expected this so far, these.. disappointing first days of "Free Agency." I new it was to good to be true when we heared that we could really go out and make moves in FA. Really though, I think it's a bit worse then I thought. So far, Bob Sanders to the Chargers and as it stands Session to the Jags. My two favorite defensive players both gone.

Now towards the topic. Say we don't sign Session/Muir/Antonio Johnson, I'd think we'd almost have to sign someone. Hypothetically, would you guys rather have Clint Session and Antonio Johnson resigned, or the addition of Brandon MeBane?

i would go with brandon mebane. i think he is better than mookie and stopping the run is a must. that would be a nice dt group with mebane, moala, nevis, foster and mathews. but even if we loose guys like session, muir and antonio johnson there is still no way we can afford mebane.

Well I'm kind of thinking there combined salary total would add up to around 12+mill a season. You think MeBane would be asking Aso money?

Well...I still don't think we'd be able to afford Mebane, but I'd go with him here. The addition of an elite (is he elite?) DT would make our defense very formidable. It would help EVERYONE on defense. Opposing QB wouldn't be able to step-up into the pocket to avoid Freeney and Mathis near as often, and runs up the middle wont be as effective. With a Dline like that, we wouldn't need great linebackers, though it would be nice to have them...

Improved defensive tackle play will help improve the play of our linebackers. Mebane would come in and demand the attention of the OL. No longer would a guard or center be able to punk our DT and quickly get their hat on our linebacker.

As much as a like Session I would give him up in a heart beat for improved DT play.

Freeney, Mebane, Moala, and Mathis would be a nice defensive line to see out there.

Sadly, with Manning's contract looming they are not going to sign someone like Mebane. We all need to just come to terms with that and realize thinking about it is just fantasy land.

Mebane. We can replace Session with Conner and not suffer a ton for it, and Mebane is going to make an immediate impact on the D-line, which is in turn going to increase Freeney and Mathis' effectiveness.

Well said. In my opinion, it is easier to find a good linebacker than it is a good DT

i think our 3 guys (sess, muir, john) are all just serviceable guys. i like johnson the best outta the 3. and i think every1 needs 2 scrap the idea of mebane..its not gonna happen. what i would like 2 see would be the colts go out n sign tommie harris who has lost some abilities but would be cheap since hes coming off surgery and is known as a dynamic player. the more dynamic players the better, obviously, but i dont think our 3 guys (sess, muir, johnson) are dynamic in any circumstance. then if you get 25 plays out of harris a game then great. we still got foster who is totally underrated as a playmaker and moala and nevis..that said GO COLTS!!!

I agree, its just me hoping and dreaming.

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
