    If true, bad news for the Colts, which makes it great news for the rest of the league. Thanks for the link.

    Everytime they get weaker without anyone getting hurt, it's a good deal for all of us ;)

    I hate the Colts.
    Not enough bad things can happen to them.
    I resent the way they kicked our arses in the second half last year...even though it was our fault!:mad:

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    Even though Glenn is an outstanding lineman, I think too much is being made. They still have one of the best offenses in the NFL.

    Sure they do. But every hit makes them not AS good and makes it that much less likely that they'll win the AFC.

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    You don't think left tackle is a key position? That a pro-bowl left tackle could make a difference in pass protection, a big enough difference to give a QB time to get the ball away?

    Interesting philosophy. Assuming you truly believe this and are not simply nay-saying in order to be contrary, do you think the OLine in general has any effect at all on how good an offense can be? Or is it just the left tackle where it doesn't make a difference if the starter is a multi-year pro-bowler or a rookie?

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    Especially when they have a rookie and a 2nd year 6th round pick to replace him. It either means more pressure on Peytey's blind side or extra help from others . . . either way, this is good news if it holds.

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    One positive for the Colts: they should get some cap relief. They still have to cover Glenn's prior signing bonuses on the cap, but his $4.5 mil salary will go away.

    Maybe they can sign some defensive help. They're going to need some help on that side of the ball.

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    You just don't go out and replace a LT like him. No matter how good a rookie is, it will be a step down this year.

    I hate it when bad things happen to the Colts.:rocker:
