    Kind of wish we signed Lawton just to eff with the Colts, though. :D

    And worth every penny :rofl:

    Too bad you spent all your money on a couple players and have no decent backups. Maybe you can find some dirt cheap receivers. David Terrell is available :rofl:

    The Colts are having the kind of injuries the Pats have had for years, although you have a long way to go the match the string of injuries we had in 2004.

    Good luck finding more dirt cheap players. :rofl:

    Maybe Polian can get another rule changed and get a cap exemption for teams too stupid to manage their cap with foresight and planning.

    Yeah, I bet they sure are hurting now. We put so much time and money into signing him after all. Oh, wait, no we didn't. Get lost, troll.

    What makes you say we don't have plenty of decent backups? 2 losses by a total of six points. 9-2 and a 2 seed in the AFC.

    Booger
    Morris
    Freeney
    Moorehead
    Hall

    All IR'd and all either starters or a true "contributor" (Hall was doing well on ST's, and most likely would have seen some PT at San Diego at WR)

    Guys like

    Harrison
    Ugoh
    Keiaho
    Hagler
    Gonzo

    all out for multiple games

    several others out for 1

    Sanders
    Brock
    Diem
    Addai

    And we don't have decent back ups??

    I am confused:confused:

    What's interesting to me is Addai got dinged in the Atlanta game. Maybe his inury is worse than anyone thought.

    He came back and played in that game. It was nothing more than a neck stinger I believe.

    Colts only had 3 RB's on the roster to begin with. While it IS possible Addai is injured more than we think. Luke has been on and off the squad at least 1 other time this year. I think Colts felt like the spot Rice took was too valuable when considering our lack of depth at that spot. Had he wowed them, maybe it's different. Disappointed about the release, thought they would give him more time to integrate.

    You don't have to be a visitor to be a troll! Trolls come in all shapes and sizes. Every color of the rainbow.

    Your a Colts fan with 7 posts here, maybe you want to go back and check out what your fraternity stated when Rice was signed. One of your boys stated that Rice would demand a double-team. My position from the start was he is washed up.

    that was a dumb comment for sure. I thought he would have more impact than he did, but like I said when he was signed, if he turns out to be washed up like he was, we really didn't lose anything. It could have only been a win or no gain signing him.

    Because Manning keeps saying you have to get some players healthy? Because the big excuse right now for the Colts is that they are playing like crap because of injuries to starters? Because Colts fans themselves admit that you are so desperate for bodies you sign players for the sole reason that they are dirt cheap (admittedly all you can afford due to cap mismanagement).

    No argument from me...

    Freeney is the best defensive player in football. It would be impossible to be as good as him, or even to replace him.
