You must have missed the post where he called a Hawks fan a douchebag simply for explaining why Hawks fans might be watching on TV rather than posting on a forum.

Not been around here long, but a ban seemed kind of unavoidable.

But his question is sound.

I fear after the mauling we got in the 3rd quarter against the jets, teams will try to run us into the ground next season. I'd like a couple of defensive guys who are more anti-run (big!) than anti-pass (fast!) to give us some flexibility.

Give Rhodes a fair crack at the whip at RB in partnership with Addai.

I don't think we need much more in terms of personnel, just try and keep who we have fit!

I think the Colts are just fine as they are. They still managed to get to the playoffs and be competitive even with all the injuries and uncertainty of slotting new players in - a lot of them off the street! Calder will be just fine - the only thing I would say is that they should seriously think about dumping Sanders at safety. He is an injury liability. Since 2004 he has played 48 out of 112 games... thats far less than 50%. Thats not counting the post season games he's missed.
Sure when he's fit he's one of the best, but there is no point in having that guy injured on the side of the field each year not making an impact! Sometimes you just have to cut him and walk away!

Angerer should be a lot better next season - especially after the amount of playing time that he got this season. With Session, Brackett and Angerer all healthy we have a decent LB corps - but I would like to see how many games those three were on the pitch at the same time this season?!

I think we draft an OL with the 22nd pick

well a LB core with a bit more fight would be nice and as said below an OL upgrade would be nice although I still think our OLine isn't that bad, a tad rusty but when on form will and has decimated defending D's.

Manning I think also needs a little time to mull over his season, not as spectacular as we've seen him and we need him to return to his usual 'game winning' self before the start of the 2011 season.

Even the Special Teams could do with a bit of tinkering and maybe inject a bit more enthusiasm into the Offense on the whole.

I think 2011 could be a defining one for Manning, he will either come out and take the bull by it's horns and lead the Colts into the AFC Championship, or he'll continue to slump along with the rest of the team and watch as the Texans, Titans or even the Jags finish above us......... god forbid!

Eagles fan in peace.

Just been trawling through Free Agency lists for possible OLine improvements for my team (as you may be aware, our OLine leaves a little to be desired).

I noticed two youngish free agents from the Colts, Mike Pollak and Kyle DeVan, who both started fairly regularly for you last season.

I wondered if you think the Colts hold onto either/neither? How highly/lowly do you rate them? My view is if they're good enough for Peyton, they're good enough for us!

i get banned because i have a creepy jaguar fan stalking me

don't mind getting banned for infringements, i don't like it when everybody isn't held to the same standards, he tends to overlook others
