    Roseman can’t draft a defensive player if his life depended on it.

    lol What team isn’t looking to add a special player like Jevon Kearse in the draft?

    I’d be more surprised if a team announced that they’re looking to add a mediocre player like Mike Mamula in the draft.

    The article about Pagano’s vision for the Colts is a good read. Will be very interesting to see such a major turnover from a speed finesse team to an aggressive, tough, blue collar, defensive team. My guess Mathis a Freeny are both gone, the 3-4 needs more versatile OLBs who can play the pass, rush, and seal the edge of the run. He will go after a Patrick Willis/Ray Lewis type (not necessarily their ability that would be a tall order) to “Quarterback” the defense, then go out in the draft or free agency and get a big physical corner. Offensively he is definitely going to prioritize upgrading the running back position and maybe a young tight end, and a more physical/run blocking O-line, a line that can just dominate and push the d-line back.

    Be patient Colts fans, it may take some time to upgrade where they need upgrades and upgrade some spots where they don’t so that he can get his scheme implemented but it will be worth it in the end. Imagine if Luck is everything he is said to be and he gets to play with a Ravens/Jets/Steelers type of Defense… WOW

    The Steelers want Charlie Batch and Byron
    Leftwich back as backup quarterbacks.

    ———————————————————-

    This statement brings forth a puzzling question:

    “WHY”?

    I don’t think Reggie is missing around. I think guys like Huff, Wimbley,etc…are either going to do whats good for the team, or be cut. If those guys response is they are not willing because it’s business, than Reggie’s response should be just that….where was the ROI from you. If you are going to make that kind of money, then earn it.

    I love Charlie Batch and am fond of Byron Leftwich. It’s nice that we’re keeping the old (emphasis on old) gang together. But since Leftwich hasn’t played in two years and Tomlin made clear last season that he doesn’t think Charlie can handle a critical game in Roethlisberger’s absence, who the heck will back up Ben??????

    Maybe that’s something ex-QB Ward can do. Good grief.
