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.

okay if we get manny lawson, are we plan on trading dwlight freeney, and if so we still got a NT and DE position to fill well i couldnt make my own forum due to being a new guy i believe if he still available in 3rd round we should pick up Derek Wolfe

    • If I was an owner I wouldn't hang division banners. People mock us for hanging a Final 4 banner in 2014 but yet think hanging a division banner (hypothetically for going 8-8) is ok? Think about how silly that sounds. I would rather be in the AFC Title Game than my division, that is common sense.
    • We will see how it plays out. Cam is washed IMO and injury prone. He has the greatest coach ever and he will be lucky to go 9-7.
    • I am not worried about Buffalo. Just contain their QB and you're good. Baltimore much harder but we have a shot there if our run D plays tough. KC and their receivers seems like the toughest. I think a great run D is key on all these games incl. TN.  We have to make all these teams one dimensional. The only one with too many skills players to stop is KC.  The only way to beat them is being able to score more points than we have all season. Let's hope our O-Line keeps offering up the extra time in the pocket. 
    • We know... we are all here because we love the game and we love the colts, can you please stop acting like the forum shrink - it's nauseating lol. We as fans are allowed to comment what we want on this forum, its not always going to be rainbows and daisies, deal with it. We all want to see the colts win and when we s*** the bed on a sunday afternoon we are allowed to have a vent and discuss where we need improving etc even if that does occasionally come with some over reaction sprinkled in. You probably thought this was a random comment to quote but its a build up of your posting as a whole and I chose to reply to this one lol.   Anywayyy, Phil did have a good game against the Bengals no doubt, but he has been very average or perhaps below average for the most part. I hope he can hang with some of the better teams we have coming up on our schedule but I do have my doubts that we will see more of the bengals type play from him very often.
