Manny Lawson: Colts Are Interested

Ideal addition to our 3-4. Anyone want to go out on a limb and say where they think he is going. I personally think he chooses the Raiders

Of course it would be nice seeing him with Angerer, Connor, Wheeler, Mathis

I hope we can sign him...But this move that the Colts are at least looking at another DE/OLB tells me they are still thinking of trading Freeney either during the draft or soon before. They are just waiting to get the right offer, which could still be made by the Bears, Pats, or Dolphins.

We would still be fine without Freeney since we would have Mathis, Hughes, hopefully Wheeler, and then either Lawson or another rookie.

Completely agree with you, or looking at the roster they don't have much depth at outside linebacker. I won't trade freeney for no less then a 3rd.

Manny Lawson is a great, extremely fast, good tackling player, and he has experience in a 3-4. He would be a nice fit, but I'm happy with our linebackers. I'm happy to see that the Colts are starting to look at players in the FA, because a lot of our players are departing.

I agree, the one thing that worries me though is the influx of LBs we might have if we continue to sign more. I guess however if we don't draft any LBs it really doesn't matter how many we bring in via FA. I'm still eagerly waiting to see who they bring in at NT and CB (unless they see something in A.J @ NT :wall: ). I do think with some adequate training players like Rucker and Thomas would make suitable back up CBs. The current coaches might be able to turn them into solid coverage players.

Hopefully the horrendous corner play we had last year was because of schemes although we do need another corner whos physical I think , but I cant wait to see the nose tackle they draft most of all, if your a colts fan I think you really should be looking to what we do in the rest of the draft and not our first pick. that pick is obvious enough, if I hear any other name other then Luck I think I'd pass out or go on a cussing rage the likes this world rarely seen before, well at least since I had the pleasure of watching the Reggie versus the Knicks days

Yeah, What are we gonna do with all these linebackers?

Probably try to figure out which ones best fit the rotation & plug some into ST. I suspect Mathis will pan out well, then Angerer. I'm not sure how Freeney will fair but I HOPE he's a beast. Then Conner, Wheeler (if retained), Mario Harvey (who has untapped hard hitting potential), Ernie Simms (speedster) & A.J Edds (played with Angerer @ Iowa) one will make a solid fourth, I'm assuming Conner, then the rest if kept will make solid backups and nice special teams players HOPEFULLY. I really want to see Mario Harvey get some action at least if kept.

But yes that is alot of LBs haha + think there might be a couple other unknowns listed on the roster @ LB.

    • The WRs have to stay healthy. Three years in a row Ballard has drafted receivers, and three years in a row almost every one of them has had a significant injury. Deon Cain, Reece Fountain, Parris Campbell, Michael Pittman... fringe roster guys have played more snaps than draft picks. Plus Funchess played what, 25 snaps in 2019? And Hilton got hurt.   Health has been the biggest factor, IMO. It's left people pining for players like Dontrelle Inman, for crying out loud.    And yeah, that Colts team in today's NFL would hopefully adjust its approach to fit the common game, and would probably be even more dangerous. 
    • Nothing has changed my view that Reich is a subpar coach.  Too many times unprepared, too many losses to lousy teams.
    • I do like the way the Steelers and Chiefs keep replenishing the core of WRs with different WRs every year. I expect us to do the same as well moving forward. Pittman has the greater chance of being a go to guy than Campbell, IMO, based on the kind of WR each one is, IMO.      That is why with the edge rushers in Freeney and Mathis, elite QB in Peyton and our WRs/TEs during the Polian era, we were able to cover up for lots of blemishes on our D and special teams.
    • I don't think the troubled defense so far is due to roster weaknesses. Their roster isn't that much different than it was last year. And rushing defense isn't that important of a stat. Their 4th best in passing yards/game against. DVOA pass defense is 5th, DVOA overall defense is 13th.   But my point of contention is that the Chiefs aren't limited at edge or WR. So their QB "overcoming" roster weaknesses isn't really comparable with whatever we need to do to make up for our roster weaknesses.
