    Bullitt is a somewhat decent safety right?

    Worth a look?

    As for the others, pass (although Clark would have been good if he were cheaper/Gronk & Hernandez weren't on the roster)

    Wow, after losing all that talent, they would have been better off trading the #1 pick for a king's ransom, and build a team. Instead, they'll have a highly touted rookie starting for the worst team in a decade. Luck is going to need some luck.

    Been on IR last 2 seasons! So that might be a worry, but if he is fully recovered, got to be worth a look!

    Didn't know he'd been IR'd the last 2 years :eek: I knew he was this season.

    If they were different injuries it isn't too bad but if it was the same thing then stay away.

    Add Wayne, Garcon, Tamme, Saturday and (likely soon) Freeney to the talent loss from last year, along with Collins, and that is one very young team in need of a major talent infusion.

    True; but on the other hand they ended the season one aging, injury-riddled 2-14 team badly in need of a fresh start.

    Jeez, what a disaster of an organization at this point. I don't care how well Luck plays, unless they sign some major FAs, this team will be lucky to win 3 games

    Man this team became garbage basically over night. Hard to believe two seasons ago they were still a major threat headed into the playoffs and in the super bowl three years ago. Personally I would of kept Peyton and gone for another run for the sb. They were essentially the same team last year as the 2010 team nobody was going to win many games with Curtis painter starting. Maybe I'm crazy.

    I totally get that, but they are creating a very difficult situation for a rookie QB. I think such a horrendous team has a good chance of severely stunting his growth.

    So by losing Garcon and Wayne does that leave the Colts receivers as Gonzalez, White & Collie?

    Good luck, Andrew Luck.

    I forgot to add Jeff Saturday to the list. I'll edit it.


    Luck's a dead man walking.

    Its looking more and more like the team not only wants to move on from Manning,but wants just about every player he played with gone.

    This team could be worse than the 2008 Lions and are putting together a rebuilding process that could go beyond 5 years in the making.

    Not sure why anyone would expect them to start a rebuilding effort by bringing back the highly paid, underproductive core of last year's 2 win team.

    It looks like they're going for the Lions method of building a team! Be that bad to gain enough top 5 picks to become somewhat competitive :D

    With all that cap room, they should make a run at Manning

    Obviously he becomes part of the package deal with Peyton and Wayne.

    Maybe the COlts can bring in Jim Plunkett for some counseling.

    Maybe because most of the players moving on weren't the problem.

    Good info. I wouldn't mind seeing Saturday in a Pats uniform for a couple of years. Class act and a great player. I'd like to see what he has left in the tank.

    They should be picking high in the draft for more than one year. That's one way to restock.

    Ya, but it takes a few years. Far from an ideal way to raise a QB. I just think they'd have been better off getting tons of picks in a trade than drafting a great QB prospect. I understand how important a franchise QB is, but no pick is a garunteed success, and a horrible offense/team makes success less likely.

    How can we pass up on a guy named Bullitt? They should release Angerer too. Then we can draft Mercilus.

    The Colts should go all-in on building him a good OL, before ANYTHING else. That's good for his health and development.

    Not likely to happen, however.

    There gonna do to Luck what the Pats did to Plunkett.

    Draining a 2-14 team of any NFL caliber talent.

    Can't say I feel bad for their ignorant, inbred fan base.

    so, can someone tell me how Luck is going to develop properly when he will be playing with a bunch of scrubs on both sides of the ball??
