I'm really REALLY hoping that the lack of involvement of the TEs by Hamilton is by design and it'll run amock once season starts. That doesn't excuse their poor performance when they've been given the chance, but I think the plays also have been designed to go not to the TEs.


That said.... it doesn't excuse the run blocking which has def been lacking.

@MarcusDugan @buymymonkey Heard this morning that it was just a sprain and that it'll be a few weeks at most.... really hope he at least gets a chance to play before the season opener. But i'll take him coming back whenever... he showed that he at least was decent (if not better)

7 Hours away and I can't wait!!!! So glad I'm home right now so I can watch it on TV!


I'll also be watching for the rush LBs. See how Werner looks against the starters (I don't expect Mathis to start tonight, if he plays at all), what all the fuss is about with regards to Newsome (is he really as good as advertised?), has Adongo progressed enough to actually make the 53?!


And we can't forget about the return duties (as we've come to learn are more interesting even during the regular season). I don't for a second believe Moncrief will be the starting KR once the season starts (just like I don't believe TY will be returning punts), I think they'll find someone else to do it and Griff might have a head up there on Rogers (i think he did well doing those duties at the end of last year).


all in all.... I CAN'T WAIT... SO GLAD IT'S HERE

As I said on the WR piece, I feel like Moncrief is essentially the same as Da'Rick..... only better! 
Hence, Griff stays...

I think the question for me is with Moncrief now in play (and i think it's safe to say he's assured a spot on the team), does Rogers become somewhat superfluous? 

I don't mean to say, of course, that Rogers doesn't bring anything to the table. I just mean that Moncrief essentially brings everything that Rogers has.... only prbly better!

Whereas, i don't know that any other receiver on the team right now really brings in a type of skill that Whalen brings to the team.


I think Whalen stays on just for that reason. (also he did pretty good doing PR last year)

As we keep an eye on things.... let's keep an eye on the C position again!!!


Phil Costa just retired from Football... so we're back to just having Hughes as the only Center

So I actually largely agree with most of what Greg said!Solid B with Nicks/Bradshaw being best signings and Costa being worst. They're better, but not superbowl contenders yet (but I do think with a SOLID center and a good Safety, they are SB contenders). 
I don't like the Costa signing because of what it means that they signed Costa. It means either that Costa was signed as a backup to whatever starter Grigs will bring in, in which case, WTH happened to Holmes??? I was really counting on him being a backup this year.... or worse yet, Holmes is the starting Center.... in which case, they shouldn't be going after Mack and the others, IMO. OR it means that Holmes is supposed to be the backup and Costa is starting.... which is... well.... YEAH... I'm not even gonna dignify that with an explanation. 
Some might ask what's so wrong if Costa is backup and Holmes is gone... well, to me, it means that they think Holms is a bust and won't be contributing anything. From Ben's fantastic posts this year, we saw that Holmes had potential, but just wasn't used. So if he was so bad that he isn't better than Satele OR Costa... i question what Grigs originally saw in Holmes to draft him. 

As far as starting C, don't forget the Draft.... it seemed like Pagano was really working the USC center during the pro-day... and if that's the case, they may be looking to draft a C in the 2nd round.... and of course there's still Mack.

If there's a guy to overpay it's Alex Mack. It'll take lots to pry him out of Cleveland, but I think there's a point after which the Browns won't match. 

Mack (or I guess Dietrich Smith) are the missing piece on the O-line. I strongly believe that a strong center is all it'll take to make this a solid line! Let's go get 'em Grigs!

Well the good news is at least we didn't overpay for an oft-injured player *coughtTolerLandrycough*


Not a huge fan of this move... not saying I don't like Jackson, I think he's a good player that can improve the defense, I just don't like the place they spent their money. Slightly overpaid for a position that wasn't  a NEED! I would have liked to have kept the overpaying to the center or a 3-4 DE (and maybe even a safety)... but doing it for an ILB doesn't sit well with me.

I have always thought this and after reading Ben's work (which is absolutely fantastic, i might add), I came to the same conclusion:
The Colts' weakest point was the interior O-line, but that had little to do with lack of talent on the roster, probably more with management of that roster. I don't think we need to bring in interior line help (with the exception of C) via free agency or draft. I think the guard positions are set and if we can get a good center, we will have a fairly solid line for next year (barring injuries). Costanzo - Thomas - [hopefully not satele] - Thornton - Cherilus
IMO, that is a solid line and a line Grigson had in mind starting last season. If everything had worked out, I think this is the line we would have ended the season with. 
I don't think Grigson did great with the last offseason, he had misses and he overpaid second chances, but I think he did alright, and I think he'll be just find this offseason too.
