Get rid of the low life Colts fans who have the audacity to boo a child who represents a team disliked by them. What a bunch of classless punks.

It was an unfortunate display of stupidity by a few fans. But, all teams have them. Even the Pats.

Totally agree and by the way, how can anyone from NY, NY be a fan of ANYTHING from Boston?! I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth thinking about it....

You are right on the money with this list. The Colts can upgrade from these players easily with no cap issues. Seidman is the only unknown because of his injury. He may be a diamond in the rough. Practice squad?

Keep the O-lineman and obviously Dallas Clark.
Boiman should be retained only if it is for the bare minimum. The guy didn't do anything all season. If his salary was based on performance he would be on welfare. He just doesn't have a knack for the ball like the rest of the Colts' LBs do.
The Colts should also put a fumble clause in Ben Utecht's contract if they re-sign him. For every fumble he loses $50K. By the end of the season he might owe the organization money.
Josh Thomas is a good guy to give breathers to the starters but proved last Sunday that he has absolutely no effect on the pass rush as a starter. Undersized and under-skilled.
Quick note on the playoff game:
I know it has been said before, but we really would have gotten destroyed by the Pats if our d-line would have played like they did against the Chargers. This was a good team this year but again couldn't step up in the playoffs. Minus the Superbowl from last year this is not a surprise but a trend.

All I have to say is get rid of Moorehead, he is terrible as receivers go. Give Thorpe another try

keep sanders and marlin there beasts. And gonzalez. You can get rid of manning. You can get an average quarterback anywhere. Get rid of done again early dungy. You have your super bowl now retire. Harrison damn that one year to many bug got you finally.Clark wow fat red neck find one of those in any bar. Joseph addai. Yeah cause we cant find another guy who runs fast those are hard to find ditch him. Or are grand line backer core who couldnt stop a draw play if you told them where it was going. Wheeler mission has men that can play that good for you. So pretty much just keep sorgi hes never dropped the clipboard. And Sanders and jackson cause they can at least hit someone after the rest of the defense misses them.

Dallas Clark and Ed Johnson are no-brainers to keep.

Beyond that, look at what the interest from other teams might be:

- The o-lineman will get offers. They might be overpaid to go elsewhere.

- Darrell Reid is a hitter and teams like that on their special teams. But, unless they see an opportunity for him in their d-line rotation, he should be affordable to bring back.

- Either Utecht or Fletcher will be back. I suspect Fletcher, just because he might be a little cheaper. Then again, Utecht has a big body for run blocking and enough finesse to be servicable catching the ball.

- Boiman could go either way. He provides some depth to the linebacking corps and was a valuable component this past season. But, he's expendable.

- I'd be surprised if either of the listed WRs is back. In fact, I suspect the Colts will take another receiver in the first couple rounds of the draft. Also, Devin Aromashodu was a pleasant surprise and could be a solid 3rd or 4th WR (depending on Harrison's return). Roy Hall could develop into something too.

- Giordano is a solid backup and a good special teams player. He's all heart. I'd like to see him come back.

- Josh Thomas is solid and underrated.

Wow , a bandwagon fan if there ever was one. I am originally from NYC and know your kind...your favorite team depends on whom is playing best. You probably have a new jersey for every sport after each sport's championship.

I do agree booing the girl was tasteless , almost as tasteless as Kraft keeping a cheating coach that accussed Indy of piping in noise....classless orginazition!

Looks like the girl and her family are parlaying a few boos from some drunks in the upper deck into free seats to the Pats/Bolts game. Not a bad tradeoff!

I agree with the exception of the tightends. I think that you have to keep either Utecht or Fletcher (purhaps both) with the injuries problems Clark had this past year. Althought Utecht seems to get hurt or fumble when he touches the ball - he will probably be the likely keeper. Of the unrestricteds - I think they have to make it a priority to keep Clark, Lilja, and Scott (I know this pretty obvious). Reid, Giordano, and Johnson are also pretty important.
