If the Colts want to make some noise this year it will be because of our defense and running game. Why not go "all in" on what was winning us games last year? Go get Wagner, and Chandler Jones. Im not a cap guru so im not sure its possible to add a 3rd big FA but if you could go find a LT, WR, or TE. 

 

I still think signing a vet FA and going after a rookie qb (whether thats in 22 or 23 draft) is the best option for the Colts. 

This is probably correct. Until we can get that franchise guy we need to make the defense as good as we can.

There’s been no announcement or report of that happening. 
 

Engram would fill the roll that Ebron had.  He’s not redundant to Granson. He’s much taller I believe. Ballard has said they need someone who can get stretch the middle of the field. 
 

 


Granson is 6’1” 1/2.   242

Engram is   6’3”.     240

 

Neither is a full time inline TE.   Both feel very much the same to me.    If we end up signing him, it’s hard to see what role Granson has?

I trust Shaad and Destin’s reports. Of course Ballard is going to do his due diligence and see what the market is on Wagner.  I’m pessimistic about it happening but I can imagine a defense with Wagner, Reddick, and Heyward added.  Doesn’t hurt to imagine. 
 

The MIKE’s have been tackling machines under Bradley.  Perryman last year for the Raiders for example. Okereke is far from that. Wagner had way more tackles than both the Colts LB’s last year.  I thought his tackling was poor often last year. 
 

Like I said, I don’t expect it to happen but can see an argument for it.

Who are these people who wrote those  tweets? Unless tweets are from credible, well-known folks like Pelissero, Schefter, Bowen, etc, I don't think these rumors should be posted. We have a rule against rumors. 

 

Let's try to reduce the use of tweets from unknown peoe. Perhaps you could start the thread asking how fans feel about pursuing or acquiring Bobby Wagner.

All these agents going to use the Colts as bait to get more money to their guys!!

 

BEWARE. Colts will be connected to a lot of people.

Yes. This happens every single year. I remember when there were “Rumors” that Tom Brady was coming to the Colts lol.

 

Because of his familiarity with Bradley, Wagner is one that makes since though. Plus we know how Ballard loves his LBs.

Looks like these coaches are going to get Ballard fired Reich for Wentz and Gus for Wagner :dunno: Dont get me wrong I like Wagner but when we have no LT QB also need TE WR DE.

Well adding Wagner does't keep us from adding more pieces

Disagree. Just because they don't have a blue check mark or works at ESPN or NFL Network some of them have sources inside the Colts building or elsewhere. This is the case here, so I think the title of the thread is valid.

    • Did you get to see the game? KT had sooo much bad luck on soft hits
    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
