Bringing Clark back is imperative!!!
Him and Utecht make their base two TE offense highly effective.

Tough call with the solid pair of Lilja and Scott..I don't want to be Mr. Polian on that call.

Moorehead's done, and I couldn't be happier. Bummer about Klecko, though. Still remember him in the 06 playoffs being highly versatile...plus I saw him play @ Temple.

Priority this off-season: Upgrade Coverage teams, please!!!

Agreed. It was sad poking at a child in that manner. But you must understand the average Hoosier. Barely passed High School (in one of the worst states for educational achievement), married their 2nd cousin, mom still does their laundry, all the while trying to get on Maury... to find their daddy.

Yeah, that's a Colts Fan.

The little sluut probably cheated to win her age group and when she wears a cheating teams jersey, she deserved to get booed.
Wearing that jersey it would have happened in any NFL
stadium. Such is the deep resentment of cheating and those who represent them.........

ANYHOW! if we don't and Freeny gets injurd again it will be another one and done year. So please Mr. Irsey & Mr. Polian do what ever you can to get another passrusher!

Sorry to say Marvin is the one to let go. The offense played well without him. He may never get back to palying speed. Free up some money for some studs at DT and LB. Some good free agents will be available. Still Marvin was the best but his time as come.

I think the Colts are falling into the same trap many teams in a sport with a salary cap. The team has too much payroll tied up in too few players. The amount of dollars invested in Manning, Sanders, Freeney and Harrison is choking the team. You can not begrudge a player for asking for the moon, but eventually they cause the demise of their own team. I am no expert here, but I do not think New England is this far out of balance. The Colts are always one play away from 6-10 with the salary of Manning.

With the payroll tied up in the above four players, then they will be weakened at too many other positions.

The fans of Baltimore have showed that they could care less about the Ravens because they are too busy trying to revenge property that was stolen 20 some years ago.

First of all, we need to wait and see if his condition will improve and he'll be some semblance of his old self. I'm not saying wait until the season starts, but let's see what happens during the off-season.

Secondly, would letting Marvin go actually free up much money? Didn't he get a hefty signing bonus with his last contract? That money would be pro-rated for some time to come and would still count against the cap if he's cut.

Dallas Clark isn't going anywhere.
Beyond that it's anyones guess. Nothing personal but Morehead doens't compare to Thrope or Aroma.. as recievers. I trust Polian/Dungy to know the personnel better than any of us. BUT THAT BEING SAID our PASS RUSH died when Freeney went down. Hopefully Booger is re-signed & or we pick up or DRAFT another valuable pass-rusher while our LB's are pretty good. Hope Marvin has a couple of more productive years. If not, love to see a TALL wide reciever that poses problems, via Moss.

I live in New England and I am a die hard colts fan. Being from New England my farther took me to a pats dolphins game about a two years ago. There was an old lady in a wheel chair sitting below us and the "respectful patriot fans" were throwing empty beer cups, hotdog wrapers and yelling every curse word in the book at her. It got so bad she had to leave the game shortly after half time. So my fellow new englander before you call anyone classless think, stop and look around. Oh yah and those bumbling idiots on WEEI (sports radio in boston)are not always right no matter how much they think they are.

I shudder to think what it must be like...actually living among those 'chauder heads,' and being obviously a DIE HARD Colts fan. Keep you in my prayers bro!
