I really can't believe Polian would pick a CB when at the least the two starting spots are locked up. With Lacey's performance last year it's more likely CB1, CB2, and NB are already on the roster. Why pick a player in the first that probably won't even have a chance to start unless he is just an unbelievable value? The only player that IMO would fit that at #31 is Joe Haden, who will absolutely not be there.

Default Donald Brown wasn't really needed since we were replacing Rhodes

To be honest, did we really need Donald Brown, a first round pick, to replace Dominic Rhodes? We could have done with a 2nd or 3rd round RB, right? The problem was Addai was banged up too often and Mike Hart's future was uncertain. Hence the logic for that pick.

Polian thinks probably a year or two in advance too, what if Addai asks for too much, maybe???

One, Kelvin Hayden's performance was way too sub-par for me last year and I am giving him the benefit of doubt with injury. With Sanders always on the injured list, Bethea and Bullitt played through a lot of banged up situations. Our CBs were constantly banged up as well in a run happy division. Quality depth is needed at CB, not just round 3 or round 4 quantitative depth. I almost think it is a cinch that a CB will be drafted in round 1 or round 2, my bets are on round 1. Nickel CBs that can play on the outside as well, those kind of versatile CBs go down in quality considerably after round 2 in this draft.

When we needed a DT bad and RB not too badly, Polian went with RB first and DT next, thank god for Mookie and Muir since Moala has not stepped up quickly enough for us. Along those lines, we need OL bad and CB bad enough but not too badly, Polian goes CB and then OL next, just call it a gut prediction. I got Donald Brown right last year, we will see how this year plays out.

I think drafting Brown was a bad decision. I thought so last year and still do. So I hope you are wrong this year because I think it would be another bad decision to draft a CB in the 1st (other than Haden). Unless they're planning to cut Kelvin Hayden. He has definitely not been worth his contract so far.

The difference in that comparison being the Colts haven't invested $40+ million in Joseph Addai, they have invested that much in Hayden over 5 or 6 years, so I doubt they'll be looking to replace him anytime soon. Also, there are 3 CBs on the roster right now that have proven starting capability, and while those are the only 3 CBs on the roster as of now, you usually don't draft a #4 CB with a 1st round pick.

This is also year 1 of it. I think he deserves more than one injury plagued season before we start determining his worthiness of the contract he was given, especially considering that he played very well to earn that contract with this team.

I dont' think he played well enough to earn the contract he got. At the time it was huge for a guy who is just not known for shutting down receivers. He's a good player but I don't think you can argue that his performance last season was worth the price. Yeah it is unfortunate that he got injured but he still got paid.

At the time Hayden was given his extension, he was coming off a great season where he was far and away the #1 CB on the team. He may not have been known around the league as a "shutdown corner", but after two good but not outstanding seasons, it's rare to get that kind of reputation. Did he have a subpar year last year? Yes, but he was injured and/or playing through injuries most of the year. Now, if he continues to produce at the levels at which he produced last year, which would likely mean more injuries, then he's not worth the contract. However, if he starts producing at the levels he produced at in 08 (though hopefully injury free), he'll be well worth the contract. Even if he only produces up to his 07 form, he'll be much more worth the contract than he was last year.

I don't disagree with any of that. I'm just saying that so far, it hasn't been worth it. That may change this season. I hope it does, we will need him with our lack of depth.

I was surprised by his comments. He will get opportunities to play though. Between injuries and just the way the offense likes to exploit different matchups he will get playing time.

And we cut an OT to do it. We are way too thin at OL already.

Addai is in his last year of his rookie contract right? What does everyone think about resigning him for perhaps a another year or two? He does a great job on pass protection and is ok at running. I don't see Brown becoming 1A this year or next so do we keep Joe?

I really do not see us drafting a CB first round. I think our CB's are fine. We are young and it shows sometimes, but I still like Jerraud Powers as #2.

Addai should get resigned. He is too valuable in the passing game to let go unless he wants too much.

As for Gonzo... keep your mouth shut.

Do you guys think that Melvin Bullitt has played his last game as a Colt?
Perhaps I read it wrong, but according to rotoworld, Bullitt's contract is set to expire. Do you shell out solid $$$ for a backup to the injury prone torpedo or do you let him go? the only reason i care is because i want denver to land him this offseason as insurance to dawkins if he retires.

It depends what kind of contract he'll command in the off-season.

I expect him to test the market.

If we lose him, SS will need to be a priority. We can't assume Bob will come back.

Not sure. I feel bad for Bullit. He did well when called on and really helped the Colts out when Sanders was out. He probably outplayed his contract but he never complained about it. Now that he's hurt, with his contract about to end and the lockout coming up he's in a bad situation.

That said I would not mind an upgrade at his position.

Guys have you looked at the upcoming free agent list for the Colts? It is potentially serious.

In order of perceived importance:

Starting QB Peyton Manning
Starting RB Joseph Addai
Starting LT Charlie Johnson
Starting DT Daniel Muir
Semi-starting DT Antonio Johnson
IRed Starting SS Melvin Bulitt
Starting WLB Clint Session
Starting MLB Philip Wheeler
Starting RG Mike Pollak

Add to this the following likely cuts based on salary vs. performance:

Starting SS Bob Sanders
Starting RT Ryan Diem

That is 9-12 starters (depends on how you count AJ, Bulitt, and Sanders) that are in their contract year and have not been given extensions.

Manning will obviously be re-signed. I don't know why it's taking so long but it is going to happen. I expect they will also re-sign Addai and CJ. Beyond that, it would not surprise me if they let the rest of them go. Maybe they retain one or both of the DTs, but I think Bulitt will get $$ elsewhere, Session and Wheeler are replaceable , Pollak and Diem are not worth keeping, and Sanders is just a lost cause.

The team could be radically different next season, if there is a season. It should be very interesting to say the least.

Manning will be resigned, and if not to a long term deal then Franchised. With Addai it depends on Brown's development. If Donald Brown comes back from injury and lights it up then I think they let Addai walk. If Brown continues to get injured or doesn't perform to a high standard then they need Addai.

Dan Muir, Mookie (and Eric Foster)'s contracts are all up but they can be resigned for relatively low money (not much higher than veteran minimum). They can also be significantly upgraded.

The team can go a couple of different ways with Session. The team have a history of letting Linebackers go (let June go after he was named to the Pro Bowl) and Session could command a lot of interest. He'd be second only to Greenway at 4-3 Outside Backer. This and the fact that they drafted Angerer in the 2nd Round (they didn't burn a 2nd Round pick just to let him stew behind Brackett for 5 years). All in all I think this is Session's final year as a Colt. At the same time he is, by a fair amount, the teams best backer (a player I am happy to say I got it wrong on).

Wheeler and Pollak's contracts aren't up until the year after. They both signed 4 year deals in 2008.

Well, maybe it'll finally force Polian to make some MUCH-NEEDED changes.

Diem should be shown the door. I'd like to get an upgrade over CJ, but that certainly won't be easy.

The problem is I don't see the talent on the Offensive Line in the 2011 draft. MAybe Camiri in the 2nd to replace Diem, or Anthony Costanzo in the 1st to replace CJ, but other than that I don't see any real talent at Tackle, while in the interior line only Pouncey is worth a high pick. I don't really rate the second tier of interior guys that highly either. So we need changes on the line but there doesn't seem to be talent in the draft.

Among interior linemen, I wouldn't draft either Wisniewski (and I'm a PSU fan) or Hudson.

Both are similar to the O-linemen that we already have.

That's the problem as well. A lot of the O-Linemen are either carbon copies of the guys we have (Costanzo being an athletic, intelligent, good pass blocking, underweight Offensive Tackle) or the complete opposite of what we have (some of the top Guards are like 340, 350 lbs who can't pass block well). We need someone in between the two. If the line doesn't improve I would vote for deep ending Linkenbach (who played well when given the chance), McClendon and Thomas. Anyone want to argue that either McClendon or Thomas wouldn't be an upgrade over Jamey Richard?
