    I would have posted this in the original Booger thread, but it had evolved into a pissing contest over penalty calls and parade attendance.

    Tony oddly danced with this one for a couple of days. Not sure why they pulled the trigger now if there ever really was a shot at him making it back before the playoffs since Polian is insisting (as with Glenn) they will replace him from the existing roster...

    I think they wanted to be absolutely sure there is no way he could return this season. Last year when Dallas hurt his knee, many thought at first that he was done for the year. Good thing for the Colts that they didn't IR him. I think they wanted to be sure that a Rod Woodson type of last season recovery was out of the question. Just my two cents.

    With all the lack of depth on the Indy defense,Peyton may have to have his BEST year in scoring points for the Colts to even sniff a chance at going deep in the playoffs.

    This year may be even more on Peyton Mannings shoulders than ever before

    Frankly-the last thing I want to see on ANY team are injuries. Best wishes to Booger, hope he recovers well for '08.

    With that being said, Sean Payton, Drew Brees, Deuce McCalister, and Reggie Bush are already FOAMING at their mouths.

    I think their best option is Dan Klecko. I always liked him and I think he fits the Indy scheme better than he did ours. Good luck to Dan (except when he plays the Pats).

    Nice if Dan Klecko gets the chance.

    Think of McFarland's rep. Many years of not giving his best effort, 8-10 games of playing all out.

    Who could tell me if he would have been of benefit to Indy at all this year even healthy?

    I've been away, so must have missed the original booger thread. Mo, I'm shamelessly highjacking this just to say I'm sure that I wouldn't have been able to handle that particular thread. Was it long? Colorful? Someone please hand the man a hanky!!!:rolleyes:
