    Say it ain't so? And here I was under the impression that 2nd round picks only get cut in New England. Who knew??? :confused: :eek:

    word is he is lazy and always out of shape.

    In any case he was waived-injured so if he is unclaimed they can still IR him I think?

    Someone may want to look at the draft archives when about a dozen of us who watch college ball called this one.

    We said this guy was a bust from day 1.

    The media all thought this pick was incredible steal.

    Ugoh has ALWAYS been a dog.

    Its a rare mistake of an early draft selection by Polian

    Not so sure his early round record is so outstanding but he does a good job in the late rounds for sure.

    Polian might try and get a new rule that if an ex player joins another team, and he wants them back, he can! :)

    I remember hearing last season Ugoh was in the doghouse for being lazy! Seems to have caught him up!

    Have we ever waived someone who had a toe injury?

    Not a broken toe ... just says toe injury ... so Polian called the toe-truck flat bed for tony?

    If they were in Boston the talk shows would be apocalyptic about a missed early pick and would go on and on about how it killed the team.

    Your mistake was in considering Ugoh a 2nd-round pick. The Colts spent a 1st on him. ;)

    He was the 47th pick. Did they trade up for him?

    Edit: nevermind saw the other thread. Ouch

    Nah, he'll probably just make it illegal to have a defense on the field while the Colts' offense is ALSO on the field. :bricks:

    I posted this on the other thread, but it is worth posting here:

    For all the hype Polian gets for drafting and people have trashed Belichick for his recent drafts, Polian has wiffed on a lot of first round picks in recent years. Joseph Addai started out like a stud and turned into a dud. Anthony Gonzalez is falling down the depth chart. Tony OhOh is a bust. Donald Brown is not even a great change of pace back. The Colts' 2007 and 2008 drafts are less than spectacular. Their 2009 draft doesn't look to be shaping up to much better

    Yup, the new and improved "11 men" penalty.

    Indeed: Not only their 1st Rounder in 2008 ~ #29 ~ but their 4th Rounder in 2007. :D

    There are lots of things you can screw up on and get away with it. LT isn't one of them. The when you try and salvage a guy as a guard and it still doesn't pan out...wow. Wonder what they will do with that OL this season besides blame them... Charlie Johnson was a 6th rounder they they were trying to plug in until he got hurt and they had to move Ugoh back out to tackle. Saturday has been hurt most of the pre season. Even a blind squirrel is right every once in a while...this could be the year...

    Apparently that first round passrusher everyone thought we wanted that we passed on hasn't exactly been impressive through camp and pre season, either. When Polian makes a mistake it's usually an epic one... I noticed Pit**** who Polian drafted in the 3rd a couple of years ago who turned around on his way to camp in year two and retired (supposedly to play video games) tried to make a comeback this season and got cut from some other team last week. Polian also gambles a lot with system wonders, waves to all but a handful when it comes extension time, although with Dungy, Mudd and the only pro OC Peyton's ever known all finally really gone this season that could get a little dicey too.

    They may have missed on Ugoh, but they got lucky and hit on Charlie Johnson in the 6th round of 2006.

    Manning gets rid of the damn ball so fast that he doesn't need great protection in most games anyway.

    I used the word "Luck" without seeing that they drafted Bethea in the same round that year, Clint Session in the 4th the next year and Garcon in the 6th in 2008. Thats pretty damn good

    Any bad news for the Colts is good news for... though if I remember correctly, he was praised his rookie season

    Give Polian a break. Ugoh only cost them the 29th pick in the 2008 draft. They probably would have used that pick to take someone like Tracy Porter anyway. Not like that would have had a significant impact on Colts' history.

    I remember when BB was talking about Ugoh, in Ugoh's second year I believe, and all he could do was describe him as very athletic. It pretty much summed up the extent to which he didn't think Ugoh could play football.

    It also is interesting to note that even the infallible Colts :)rolleyes:) make mistakes in the draft.
