the colts aint going nowhere until they get a kick returner AND a burner who can go deep and stretch the field - peyton can go deep but there's no one for him to throw it to and we never start a drive past the 20 yard line - everybody's talking about backup rb and o-line and maybe another pass rusher - yadda,yadda,yadda - but i've been a fan since 1973 and until we get some game breakers we are doomed - our most exciting player is a defender (bob sanders) this shouldnt be the case - also our kickoff coverage stinks and needs to be shored up - everytime we get the ball on a kickoff we have to go 80 yards and our opponents only have to go 60 or 70 - i'm sick of it

Not going anywhere? Doomed? What are you talking about? 5 straight 12 win seasons and 1 year removed from the Superbowl, some "fan" you are. Get back to work!!!

A capable WR/KR/PR can be found in the later rounds, as can a backup RB. Keith isn't that bad. We saw what happened when we lost Freeney. I'd say we should invest (via the draft, not FA) in a good pass rusher that can be groomed.

I think it's clear that a lot of players were rusty for the Chargers game. The team had many, many injuries throughout the season (and still went 13-3..almost sweeping the AFC SOUTH!!!). The guys that made it back for the playoffs weren't as ready as they needed to be against a tough Charger team.

Antoine has been superb for both of his seasons. He's going to keep improving. Along w/ Bob, Kelvin and Marlin, the secondary is a strength. And it will be for a few years.

There's a lot about not wasting the money, but I have to point out that we HAD a burner on the team, but with no repoire with Peyton - and the worst football name on the team: Craphonso Thorpe. It shows that we'd rather have a below average kickoff return set, but with the right team chemistry. I don't know weather to agree or not, but I'm not paid to make that call.

We do not need to waist a draft pick on a kick returner. We can get a good back up RB who also can return or a good DB that can return. I am hoping we draft this guy in the later rounds. http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingrepo... Bethea was a sixth round pick and is now a pro bowl selection this says alot for Polian

What the F does your babbling have to do with Bethea getting to go to the Pro Bowl?

My son has one; the only one I've ever seen. In fact, I told him I'd give him $20 if he spots another one at the last couple of games we attended. I had to order it from the NFL Shops.

I don't think I'll bet him next year. Bethea rocks!

Keith isn't that bad, except for the fumbles and deer-in-headlights thing behind the line, lack of explosion, change of direction, and average hands at best. He DOES block okay sometimes, and isn't normally out of position, so I'd call him a third stringer on a playoff team. Maybe we need to give Lawton a better shot to spell Addai, or another heavier runner to finish up games in the 4th q.(A Kevin Faulk type guy or a younger Alstott type). I know they don't grow on trees, but we can always look around.

Gary Brackett should be representing the Colts in the Pro Bowl as well.
