Colts sign RB Dion Lewis


Recommended Posts

I would really like to know what goes through Grigs' mind sometimes.  The Colts lose two OLB for the season so he goes out and signs a RB that may see the ball 4 or 5 times a game.

 

Good move Grigs, keep up the good work.

Maybe there is a trade in the works and a RB and one of our extra 6 or 7 for a pass rusher 5 rb's on the 53 is a lot almost have to assume something is in the works .

I was thinking same thing... wouldn't be surprised if colts trade bradshaw or trent..

I can understand if Lewis was signed as a PR.  Griff didn't seem to have the speed to get to the edge on returns the other night, and probably shouldn't have tried.

 

Having said that Lewis's one fumble in few carries gives me some concern.  I prefer hands over speed for my PRs.  Maybe he did not have a fumble history in college.

Everyone who's returned kicks has fumbled

Donald Brown is quite fast and his acceleration is fantastic.

 

I like Brown too.  I'm just saying their measurables are similar.  Lewis runs a 4.57, Brown runs a 4.51, Lewis is about 200 and Brown is about 207.  Brown is 5'10 and Lewis is 5'8.  I think Brown may have more explosion than this guy though

Yeah, I'd be very surprised if Lewis is as explosive as Brown. That's probably Brown's best asset.

Well if he sees 4 or 5 carries a game then its a good signing...I mean he would be contributing obviously....but I do have to wonder where the help will come from. We can only blitz so much....I mean I think it was fairly effective the other night against a great OL...but what I worry about is the space we are abandoning being exploited and running qbs having room to roam if we break containment. Good qbs will pick blitzs apart...perhaps in our division we feel we can get away with it. I imagine a move for depth at some point...likely they want to take their time and get the RIGHT guy...not just the FIRST guy.

The move makes me wonder if there isn't an injury to TR, Bradshaw, or Boom

Possible....sometimes you see a guy available...you might not need him but he is too good to pass up...you roll the dice and take him on the off chance he may help you at some point....perhaps Grigs thought he was too good to be sitting out on the wire and IF we ever needed him he would be gone by then...

He could also provide ST help

I really can't tell if this is a serious post or not.  I was talking touches... I assume the 4 or 5 will be KO returns and maybe PR.

 

I was all for signing a potential depth OLB and I saw in another thread after I posted that Grigs signed some other bottom feeder to replace Johnson, and for the record I don't have a problem with signing a bottom feeder, that is all a team can get this time of year.  And I don't have a problem with this signing other than it makes no sense.

I would rather they signed LaMicheal James

Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter · 1h

Former 49ers RB LaMicheal James cleared waivers and is now free to sign anywhere he chooses, per source.

That's shocking actually. Would have thought for sure Baltimore would pick him off waivers.

    • If Pittman and Campbell both breakout this year the Colts offense could be something special. DBs won't be able to just hone in on Hilton. I don't know what his stats will be but I think it'll be close to 18 than 19, 20.
    • So, let's get this out of the way at the beginning.     Carson Wentz is our first round pick for 2022.    I'm guessing we will be picking roughly in the same spot, maybe a little later...   Where do we go from there?     Here's my first look....    I think of it as the more toys for Wentz edition...   1.   Wentz 2.    TE      Rumor is Doyle will retire after this season.   Frank loves TE's, so let's give him one that can really make an impact. 3.    CB     How long will Rhodes and Carrie be able to deliver high level play.    Feels like it's time to face that. 4.    WR    I thought we'd spend higher than a 7 on a WR in the '21 draft.    This may be Hilton's last year.   Still lots of young question marks. 5.    RB     Will we re-sign Hines?    Maybe?    Likely?    How about Wilkins?    With questions here,  I think a 5 might bring us a decent RB. 6.    OL     Depth to stash away on the PS as I expect Fries to be. 7.    LB     More depth?    How long will Adams and Franklin remain with the Colts?   I'm sure some of my draftnik friends have some ideas about the next class.    What do you see the Colts doing in 2022?  
    • Ah. I noticed the stats for all our away prime time games too.    We really do get shafted. 
    • I plan on doing Miami this year too. I unfortunately can't start planning anything until I know more about when the border will open again I'll definitely be at that one too as long as the border is back open
    • I think using KC as an example is not really correct. They lost 2 starting Oline players a week before the big game. I don't think to many teams could over come losing 2 starting players and hope to win. By that I mean 2 starting  corners......so on and so on.
