if we can get consistent pressure from the front four, our current secondary will be just fine

I believe we will be fine until the playoffs. We WILL face an elite QB in the playoffs, and I feel we will need 1 more corner to contend with the receivers. As good as Mathis and Freeney are, they can't get pressure on every play. The one play they don't, we could easily get burned.

yeah, but i'm talking about potentially better play from the tackle position. we know what we have in freeney & mathis. give them some legitimate help in the middle & look out

I wouldn't want Bullitt at corner for more than a down. He's just not vertically fast enough. He's better off at safety. If we sign Whitner we're most likely done because we'll have used up all the cap room we want to before the season starts and we have to make a few injury signings...

Last year, the Jets WRs abused the Colts secondary in that playoff game. The fact Sanchez isnt a very good QB and missed alot of wide open WRs for big plays/TDS shouldn't be forgotten.

The score at the end made the game look closer than it really was. Had the Colts played vs a team with just an average QB, it'd have been ugly.

The Colts need a SS and CB in my eyes. I think they've done a nice job addressing issues at the first and second level, however the secondary remains less than robust. I believe the SS issue is a higher priority and Whitner is who they're after. I also believe once the SS issue is addressed, they'll calculate available cap space and work to sign another CB. At least I hope that's the plan.

Go COLTS! :coltshelmet:

    • You can’t help those who are determined to complain no matter what.  
    • 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.
