In perspective

I'd be lying to you if i said all of our problems were fixed but we are taking a step in the right direction. As you know offense has never really been our problem. Even with the glaring holes in our o line last year we managed to make due. And in my opinion we have gotten better by adding youth to our O line. I do believe we should have kept CJ over Diem but at this point Diem is servicable until one of the rookies or other offensive lineman take his spot. Now going to the defensive side of the ball. Our starting LB core would've been Brackett, Connor and Angerer but with the addition of Sims this mixes up a little competition for the two OLB positions. In my opinion Sims will prob take Angerers. With the new addition of Jamal Anderson that gives us some versatility on the line. He's virtually the same player as Raheem Brock. Not saying hes our savior because he isnt but he should get a chance to spell mathis/freeney and also come in on 3rd downs as a DT. And who knows u never know he might crack the starting lineup. Now at corner im not to sure...Powers needs to stay healthy for a full season. Tryon played better than I anticipated, not sure if he or Lacey will get the other starting corner job. In all honesty i would prefer Trryon over Lacey. At Safety im fine with Bethea and Bullit. There are still some worthy FA'S left. I dont anticipate a big signing due to cap n cash but maybe one more small signing if anything IE. another low risk high reward guy :colts:

I agree, most of my concerns are with the defense. I would like to see some depth at corner and safety. LB should be fine with the addition of Sims and D-line should be ok with the addition of Anderson. I don't see any strong backups behind Bethea and Bullit and other than Powers, I'm not totally sold on any of our corners as starters. Tryon played very well, but I'm not 100% sold on him yet

Yeah, I'm really hoping he returns to his old form. Things will be interesting to watch at camp this year.

For the record, if Jerraud Powers stays healthy, what does everyone think of him? I seem to think he can be pretty special when healthy. Just my 2 cents......

If you ask me, he has the potential to be one of the best corners in the league. He is an excellent player and if he can stay healthy, Pro Bowl is not out of the question. I could see him being one of the top corners in the NFL.

I agree Jerraud Powers is one of the most exciting players on the Colts Defense I hope he stays healthy as the defense really seems to play better when hes on the field

    • I mean calling things what they factually are that’s a real spin job by you lol.
    • I think the confusing part for me is the utilization. This is it for Campbell. This is his final season to prove he belongs in the NFL and right now the colts are not doing him any favors if their not even attempting to get him into space and let him work. 
    • I’m not sure you and I are watching the same defense.   Through 3 games the Colts have played 12 quarters and one full 10 minutes overtime.     IMO, the Colts defense has looked good for 5 quarters and the OT.    I’d say the 4th Q of the Houston game plus the KC game. But the defense was unimpressive for 3 quarters of the Houston game and all 4 quarters of the JVille game.   So that’s 7 bad quarters versus 5 plus good quarters.   That’s hardly coming attractions for a #1 defense.    Compounding your argument our pass rush is a long way from being a top 10 rush to be feared or respected.   They will likely get better this year but enough to help make this the number one overall defense?   Right now this feels like you’re watching our games through Blue tinted glasses.     Hey, I’d be thrilled if you’re right, but for right now,  sorry, I just don’t see what you see. 
    • There were a bottom 2ish to start the season...  They lost to Wentz... and a bad WA team. They beat a bad team, Indy, who let their QB set a new career high again (now twice). Totally out coached.  They beat a highly ranked team, with a QB broken ribs lol... who only goes as a far as QB takes them.
    • I know it gets very old with a few around here. I have never said Matt Ryan is the GOAT. Some people in here are getting ridiculous and can't even be happy with a win.
