Sharper is like super old 35 if im correct.... No thank you.

As long as he is able to play 18-19 games I think he will be fine. He will only get a 1 year deal anyway (going by our recent trends) and I feel we need to sign one more free agent to shore up our secondary. Sharper and Bethea at the safety position would give us threats for interceptions. Also, because he is a bit aged as a DB, that would be a good scenario to substitute Bullitt in to give him a breather. I am all in favor of keeping a good rotation and keeping fresh bodies in there to make plays.

Sharper is a great player i just think the colts are better off bringing in a young guy like whitner where he wont need as many substitutions plus if he was to have a great season wont have to worry about him retiring or anything like that.

if we actually are signing him it would not be to help the team long term. but it would help us in being the SUPERBOWL CHAMPS THIS YEAR. :disco: and that will be freakin awesome

The article also says, "The highly emotional but talented safety was hoping to come into big money via free agency – money that Buffalo was certainly never going to give him." Then the article goes on to say, " If they decide that Whitner’s talent is worth the occasional Twitter nonsense, he’ll be back. If not, it could be a while before Whitner signs anywhere."

That doesn't leave us out of the picture, especially with a week and a half until the pre-season starts.

Personally I think the expierence and depth a guy like sharper would add to the rotation would be absolutely invaluable. With as young as our secondary is it would be like having a coach playing in the secondary. Plus this guy doesnt hold records in the nfl because hes a slouch! I would take sharper on any team if I was a gm he just brings so much that I truely think it out ways the downside of his age.

    • 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.
