Marlin Jackson has a blessing in disguise, the experience of playing both positions will benefit him in the CB spot. I'm just hoping Sanders can stay healthy for the majority of the season.

Are you two buffoons really talking about Purdue? I just don't get it.....

Anyways, these two corners are going to prove to be a lot better than the two previous ones. I think they'll be more more physical and aggressive, and I think we'll see the interceptions increase. Colts fans should have nothing to worry about.

You have to had gone there to get it. That rivalry is always relevant no matter what the subject is I guess.

I really like our defensive backfield this year. Much more than last year. Doss was decent, but Bethea has a much larger upside. Sanders is hopefully back to being Sanders this year. Hayden is an upgrade over David. He should have started last year, but the Colts gave the shot to David just so they could claim another 4th round pick when they knew they werent going to sign his qualifying offer sheet against the Saints. Jackson is obviously a huge upgrade over Harper. Not saying Harper wasnt serviceable, but he is in his 30s and coming off an injury plagued season. If this unit gels well during the first few weeks of the season they could really become one of the best defensive backfields in the NFL. Combine that with Hughes, who by all accounts is going to be a very good corner in the Cover 2 (which he played at Cal), and you have some depth. Now if Jennings can step up someday and be worth his 2nd round status, we should be good there. My worry is with the LBs....what else is new. The LB coach should get a raise every year. All he does is bring in draft picks and turn them into Pro Bowlers only to watch them each walk away for bigger contracts.....well except for good old Rob.

Our coverage has always been one of the worst in league.
They dindn't get expoesed much last year...they didn't need to when teams could run for 200 yards a game.

So it's not that they where any better last year, teams just fgured out they didn't need to pass when they could run down our throats.

Charlie Johnson is a thug!!!!!!!

Jackson is the man, and can finally show his true talent at the CB. Bethea the second year man, will be at the safety slot along side Big BOB. I culd care less about losing Jason David but it's sad to see Nick Harper go!

Go get em Marlin, Take your opportunity and go for it like we know you can.

I think everyone will be impressed with your abilities. The Colts defense will be improved this year even with all the changes in the secondary, now we have to secure the LB position and another Super Bowl is possible.

How is 6'0 196 pounds size for a defensive back? Maybe that is big for the smurfs the Colts have.

Marlin will be this years Elvis "Toast" Patterson.

They were thugs before football and before the dogs. And funny, you can take the thug out of the ghetto, but can't take the ghetto out of the thug.

Nothing like reason and logic. So when a person is an athlete AND owns a pit bull, they are a thug? What if a person is a chef and owns a pit bull? Or a person is an "athlete", but the sport that they play is not really tough - like bowling, curling, or yard darts - are they a thug if they own a pit bull? I feel like I'm in 4th grade...A) All football players wear helmets. B) Bobby is a football player. Which of these statements is true? Sheesh!

The Colts defense is going to be fine, as long as they don't get hit by the injury bug too severly. If you own a pit bull you are a thug.

Charlie isn't from the ghetto. He is from Sherman, Texas which is the same city Hunter Smith is from.
