I don't think Verner would fit our system.... He's not really a press corner. He'd be a perfect nickle corner, we already have butler locked up for another year. Nonetheless he would be an upgrade over Toler.

Verner plays press man in Tennesse and is one of the best in the NFL at it.

Call me crazy, but I don't think our entire defense played bad the first half yesterday. I think the corners made it look that way. Obviously, Davis and Toler aren't 100% and I don't think, well, I know we can't take that secondary into Denver or New England. I'm pretty sure Toler won't(or shouldn't) be out there next week, but what do you guys think about Davis being out there? 

Toler is done with the Colts, he is a liabilty and is out more than he is in.....  had potential, but Colts can't afford to have him when he just warms a roster spot as we move forward next year.

We're going to give up points this week.  If Smith carved us up, Brady might set NFL Records.   

Our offense is going to have to carry us,  We need ball control and TDs instead of FGs.

Keep in mind Colts D line had to be concerned with Smith ability to run, as he made several plays with his legs. Mr Brady isn't going anywhere, Dline can come get him. Believe Pats Oline has been beat up. Robbie Mathis May need a bib at practice for the drool.

If you can't hang with Welker, I think you do far worst against Edelman and Amendola because of both being quicker and faster, and more explosive in and out of their breaks.

 

That is just wrong. No one cuts on his routes better than Welker in the league.

I hope Toler is gone next season also. But I really don't want another high priced FA cb other than us resigning Davis.

I would rather spend good money in FA on the OL. And hopefully draft a Ekpre-Olomu cb -Oregon who may not make it to us or Kyle Fuller cb-VT who is really good in man coverage, who should be available at the end of the second rd.

I like Davis out there next week. My big thing is that corners must be 100% to play. Of course, if a corner has an arm taped, or something that isn't affecting their running or cutting then fine. They have to do so much running, backpedaling, jumping, closing, etc... that even our reserve corners at 100% will be much better equipped to get into a groove than injured starters. Other positions can get away with less than 100% players, but I don't think that corners should. You're on your own a lot of the time and there is no help to bail you out. Just my opinion. Davis Butler Vaughn and Gordy should be out there if available.

Ekpre=Olomu is going back to Oregon..He already announced it..I would love to have him at corner, but he's still a Duck.

Good call I missed that.... Yeah, I would love to have him in Indy. He would have definitely been one of the top corners in the draft this year.

As long as Toler is NOT in a Colts uniform next year, I'll be happy. 

 

Some how he's a worse version of Powers! 

On the flipside Toler only allowed 2 TD's through his first 7 starts this year before injury, But has been picked on other then that however

Toler is wildly inconsistent when healthy. He either shuts his man down, or can't cover a pot with it's lid. I really don't care to see him back. He reminds me of Tim Jennings under us. He made big plays. But for every 1 big play he made there were 25 awful ones. 

 

Even when healthy, Toler is a lousy tackler.

I think Davis and Toler will have better games against the Pats.  They are both play hard press coverage, that will help against NE short passing game.  

 

Toler won't have a better game against the Pats this weekend. He's out on IR. Not playing.

sportrac shows the contract

He got 3 years.

His cap hit would be ONLY $666,667 if cut.

He won't be cut. I can understand this forum hoping we cut Satele because it can happen because he sucks. But Toler wasn't a "experiment". He was suppose to be the legitimate 2nd corner. And we should give him next year to prove it. We definitely don't need to sign a corner to a big deal. Keep who we have and continue to build Sheldon Price.

I mean I agree the guy has been hurt all year but sometimes you got to suck it up and play with what you have. We signed him and when he played he was solid in the first half of the season. We definately don't beat Denver without him and everyone else in the secondary playing lights out. He didn't work out but if he can give us 10-12 games next year at the level he gave us during the first half of the year we shouldn't be too disappointed....just hoping he is there at crunch time. Our young corners are coming along....I think our rotation while not Seattle elite is pretty solid.
