With all those injured players it makes you wonder if the testostrone was at work or we have a bunch of sissies. Oh! I can't play because I hurt my hangnail

I knew when they first signed this guy that he wasn't going to make the team. I'm certain I wasn't the only one who felt this way.

The Colts are not the Colts since they don't play in Baltimore. Why not call youself the Indinapolis Hoosiers instead?

This is the time Darrell Reid has to prove to the Colts that he can play. If he allows this rookie (Pitcock) to move ahead of him then he should be cut because all he is doing is taken up a roster spot for someone who can contribute.

Makes sense. We should add at least 1 DT during the preseason from waivers of other teams. Many times teams have a midlevel or veteran player they like, but either have a younger, cheaper player ready to replace him or are very deep at that position. We could probably get a decent player before the season begins. Last resort there is always a trade possibility or a, umm, dare I say it, uhh, hmmm, Tank Johnson, gulp. Yeah, I know it wouldn't be a good move, but he's available and did clear the air a bit by acknowledging his mistake, but put it into perspective of failure to license a firearm. He's no saint, but is solid and we might be able to steal his services.

Let's try something... Let me tear your Patellar Tendon, make you carry an extra hundred pounds or so trying to recover and then see how you react afterwards. It has been said that the Colts have basically played an extra season's worth of football because of the postseason play. We have been relatively lucky our injury situation hasn't been worse and that it was limited to only certain players and most of those were only brief injuries rather than season ending.

Sanders on the "Physically Unable to Perform" list? Imagine that!!! I know that football is a rough and violent sport, but come on. The guy's only played in 24 of 48 games.

When he's healthy, he's a monster... IF he's healthy, that is. Maybe they should also look into cutting him and getting a few other players for that kind of scratch?

That was 25 years ago and you are from Portland. The Colts haven't played a meainingful game in Baltimore in over 30 years and many of the final seasons were played to a fading, disgruntled fan base during a very dark period in Balitmore's history as they struggled with urban flight, crime, and a degrading city interior. Plus Balitmore was about to undergo Emminent Domain proceedings to steal the team from private ownership, can you blame them for taking their team to save it from being stolen. Yeah, you can rekindle that debate, but you would be considered someone that can't put history to rest. We have forged our own path and so have they. The new generations of Colts fans are as die-hard and informed as any, myself included (I was 2 years old when they moved here... I, like many, know of nothing else about the Baltimore Colts except from the history books and old footage at a time when the NFL was so completely different)

This is 2007 you know? Not 1977.

So with your logic the Baltimore Ravens are still the Baltimore Colts? Try selling that to people that live in Baltimore.

Not sure if you realized this, but you live on the other side of the continent (yes thats the North American continent) from Baltimore, so why do you care? I bet you still think Unitas is going to come back and take baltimore to a victory. Move on guy. Your city didnt want them, they didnt want you anymore, and we love them. Get over it.

True, but the DT position is one that varies depending on down, scheme, and field position. Reid appears to be a more quick on his feet passing down DT. Pitcock would likely be a run-stopper, gap-filler. The last thing I would do is cut a DT. Depth, as we see first hand, is a premium.

What a dumbass. Ever consider the fact that I moved to Portland 7 years ago from Md and watch the Ravens on direct TV and followed the Baltimore Colts up to 1983 when I was 22? Why would I care? Now can you comprehend you silly-assed midwest farmboy? I am surprised you could even read my comment.

I couldn't agree with you more. The Colts have a lot of mileage on them after their long run through the playoffs and eventual Super Bowl win. If you look back at the last three seasons, they've played a lot of games.

However, I believe that some of the injuries are due to overtraining. These guys are in weight and strength training programs year around, which can take its toll on big bodies and maxed out joints, tendons and ligaments.
